  • FROM THE PULPIT
  • 00:00:06.260 --> 00:00:08.010
  • OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF DALLAS, TEXAS,
  • 00:00:08.020 --> 00:00:10.040
  • THIS IS PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:10.050 --> 00:00:12.200
  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS,
  • 00:00:14.170 --> 00:00:16.000
  • AND WELCOME TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.010 --> 00:00:18.160
  • IN AMERICA, WE'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH
  • 00:00:18.170 --> 00:00:20.140
  • AN OVERABUNDANCE OF FOOD.
  • 00:00:20.150 --> 00:00:22.250
  • MOST OF US LIVE WITHIN JUST A FEW MILES OF DOZENS
  • 00:00:22.260 --> 00:00:25.220
  • OF DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS AND GROCERY STORES,
  • 00:00:25.230 --> 00:00:28.240
  • SO DO WE REALLY NEED TO ASK GOD, AND TO QUOTE,
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:32.190
  • "GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD"?
  • 00:00:32.200 --> 00:00:35.240
  • WELL, THERE'S MORE BEHIND THAT FAMILIAR STATEMENT
  • 00:00:35.250 --> 00:00:39.000
  • THAN ASKING FOR A LOAF OF BREAD.
  • 00:00:39.010 --> 00:00:41.070
  • AND TODAY, WE'LL EXPLORE OUR NEED
  • 00:00:41.080 --> 00:00:43.150
  • FOR GOD'S PROVISION IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:00:43.160 --> 00:00:46.040
  • MY MESSAGE TODAY IS TITLED "FOOD FOR THOUGHT"
  • 00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:49.270
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:49.280 --> 00:00:53.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:53.180 --> 00:01:00.210
  • FOR JESUS, PRAYER WAS KEY
  • 00:01:00.220 --> 00:01:02.210
  • TO HIS LIFE AND MINISTRY.
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:04.160
  • SO IF THE SON OF GOD BELIEVED PRAYER WAS IMPORTANT,
  • 00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:07.170
  • HOW MUCH MORE ESSENTIAL IS PRAYER FOR YOU AND ME?
  • 00:01:07.180 --> 00:01:10.240
  • IN HER BRAND NEW BOOK, "PRAY BIG THINGS",
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:12.290
  • JULIA JEFFRESS SADLER CHALLENGES YOU TO PRAY BIG THINGS,
  • 00:01:13.000 --> 00:01:16.200
  • AND EXPERIENCE GOD'S EVEN BIGGER ANSWERS.
  • 00:01:16.210 --> 00:01:19.240
  • ARE YOU READY TO SEE GOD MOVE IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.270
  • LIKE NEVER BEFORE?
  • 00:01:21.280 --> 00:01:23.050
  • REQUEST THE BOOK "PRAY BIG THINGS"
  • 00:01:23.060 --> 00:01:25.060
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT
  • 00:01:25.070 --> 00:01:26.220
  • TO SUPPORT THE MINISTRY OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:26.230 --> 00:01:31.040
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:31.050 --> 00:01:38.010
  • WELL, IN OUR STUDY OF THE LORD'S PRAYER,
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:39.210
  • WE COME TO THAT PORTION OF THE PRAYER
  • 00:01:39.220 --> 00:01:41.190
  • IN WHICH JESUS TAUGHT US TO PRAY
  • 00:01:41.200 --> 00:01:43.220
  • GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.
  • 00:01:43.230 --> 00:01:47.140
  • NOW, THE TRUTH IS,
  • 00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:49.240
  • OUR PROBLEM IS NOT THAT WE HAVE TOO LITTLE BREAD,
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:52.230
  • THE PROBLEM FOR MOST OF US IS WE HAVE TOO MUCH BREAD.
  • 00:01:52.240 --> 00:01:56.110
  • SO WHAT DOES THIS VERSE MEAN?
  • 00:01:56.120 --> 00:01:58.270
  • THIS VERSE IS A SWEET AND QUAINT PRAYER
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:01.070
  • THAT MIGHT'VE BEEN APPLICABLE IN JESUS' DAY,
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:04.160
  • OR IT MIGHT EVEN APPLY TO MANY THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:07.180
  • AROUND THE WORLD TODAY, BUT IN AMERICA,
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:10.140
  • WHO NEEDS TO PRAY FOR THEIR DAILY BREAD?
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:13.000
  • IN FACT, I WOULD ASK YOU HOW MANY OF YOU
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:15.170
  • ACTUALLY SINCERELY ASK GOD EVERY DAY
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:18.240
  • TO PROVIDE THE FOOD THAT YOU NEED?
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:21.220
  • WE JUST DON'T DO THAT, SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR US TODAY?
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:25.210
  • TO FOLLOW JESUS' INSTRUCTION AND PRAY FOR OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:02:25.220 --> 00:02:29.190
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT THIS MORNING.
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:31.090
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, TURN TO MATTHEW 6,
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:34.160
  • WE'RE IN A SERIES CALLED PRAYERS THAT REALLY WORK.
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:37.180
  • PRAYER IS THE CHANNEL THROUGH WHICH
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:39.140
  • WE RECEIVE GOD'S POWER IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:42.150
  • AND JESUS IN MATTHEW 6 TAUGHT US HOW TO PRAY,
  • 00:02:42.160 --> 00:02:45.170
  • HE DIDN'T SAY PRAY THIS PRAYER,
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:47.060
  • HE SAID PRAY IN THIS MANNER.
  • 00:02:47.070 --> 00:02:48.290
  • THIS PRAYER IS NOT A MANTRA TO BE REPEATED WORD FOR WORD,
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:53.040
  • IT IS A MODEL TO FOLLOW IN EFFECTIVE PRAYING.
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:56.290
  • AND REMEMBER, WE'VE SEEN SO FAR THAT WHEN WE PRAY,
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:59.000
  • WE ALWAYS BEGIN WITH OUR FOCUS ON GOD,
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:01.130
  • HE IS OUR FOCUS WHEN WE BEGIN WITH,
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:03.240
  • AND WE START WITH PRAISE, OUR FATHER, DADDY,
  • 00:03:03.250 --> 00:03:07.100
  • ABBA WHO IS IN HEAVEN, HOLY IS YOUR NAME.
  • 00:03:07.110 --> 00:03:11.040
  • WE'RE TO REMEMBER THAT GOD IS DIFFERENT,
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:13.050
  • HE IS SEPARATE THAN WE ARE.
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:15.000
  • AND BECAUSE GOD IS SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT THAN WE ARE,
  • 00:03:15.010 --> 00:03:17.290
  • IT ONLY FOLLOWS THAT AFTER PRAISE,
  • 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:19.220
  • WE OUGHTA BE THINKING ABOUT HIS PRIORITIES, NOT OURS.
  • 00:03:19.230 --> 00:03:22.140
  • AND THAT'S WHY WE PRAY THY KINGDOM COME,
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:25.160
  • THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AND IN MY LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:30.110
  • THERE'S THAT SUBMISSION TO THE PRIORITIES OF GOD
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:33.120
  • WHEN WE BEGIN TO PRAY.
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.100
  • BUT I WANT YOU TO NOTICE HOW THE EMPHASIS SHIFTS
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:38.060
  • WHEN WE GET TO VERSES 11 AND 12.
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:41.040
  • IN THE EARLY VERSES, THE EMPHASIS IS ON THY NAME,
  • 00:03:41.050 --> 00:03:44.230
  • THY KINGDOM, THY WILL, NOW NOTICE HOW THE EMPHASIS SHIFTS
  • 00:03:44.240 --> 00:03:49.240
  • TO OUR NEEDS,
  • 00:03:50.120 --> 00:03:51.230
  • NOTICE THE PERSONAL PRONOUNS IN VERSES 11 AND 12,
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:53.240
  • GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:03:53.250 --> 00:03:58.050
  • AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS, AS WE HAVE FORGIVEN OUR DEBTORS,
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:01.280
  • AND DO NOT LEAD US INTO TEMPTATION,
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:04.290
  • BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
  • 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:06.270
  • WE HAVE THREE BASIC NEEDS IN LIFE,
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:10.170
  • WE NEED PROVISION, OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:13.230
  • WE NEED PARDON FROM SINS, THAT IS FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:17.080
  • AND WE NEED PROTECTION FROM ADVERSITY.
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:20.170
  • AND JESUS SAYS THERE'S NOTHING WRONG
  • 00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:22.160
  • AND EVERYTHING RIGHT WITH GOING TO YOUR HEAVENLY DADDY,
  • 00:04:22.170 --> 00:04:25.230
  • YOUR PAPA, AND TELLING HIM WHAT YOUR NEEDS ARE.
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:30.020
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TODAY,
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:31.230
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS FIRST OF THREE NEEDS
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.230
  • EVERY ONE OF US HERE HAS THIS MORNING,
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:35.280
  • WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:37.080
  • AND THAT IS FOR GOD'S PROVISION IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:39.280
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO PRAY FOR OUR DAILY BREAD?
  • 00:04:39.290 --> 00:04:41.260
  • NOW, SOMEBODY HAS SAID WE ALL NEED THREE THINGS,
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:44.160
  • WE NEED SOMETHING TO PUT IN, THAT IS FOOD AND WATER,
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:47.290
  • WE NEED SOMETHING TO PUT ON, THAT IS CLOTHING,
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:51.010
  • AND WE NEED SOMETHING TO PUT OVER US, THAT IS SHELTER,
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:54.280
  • TO PROTECT US FROM THE ELEMENTS AND ADVERSITY.
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:57.200
  • SOMETHING TO PUT IN,
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:58.290
  • SOMETHING TO PUT ON, AND SOMETHING TO PUT OVER.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:02.110
  • AND JESUS SAID WHEN YOU COME TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:05.250
  • ASK HIM TO PROVIDE FOR THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:08.090
  • MARTIN LUTHER, IN COMMENTING ON WHAT BREAD MEANS
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.280
  • IN THIS PASSAGE SAYS,
  • 00:05:10.290 --> 00:05:12.200
  • "EVERYTHING NECESSARY FOR THE PRESERVATION
  • 00:05:12.210 --> 00:05:15.110
  • "OF THIS LIFE IS, QUOTE, BREAD.
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:18.110
  • "THIS INCLUDES FOOD, A HEALTHY BODY, GOOD WEATHER,
  • 00:05:18.120 --> 00:05:22.150
  • "A HOUSE, A WIFE, CHILDREN, GOOD GOVERNMENT, AND PEACE."
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:28.250
  • I THINK THAT'S WHAT JESUS HAD IN MIND.
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:30.110
  • WHEN HE SAID PRAY FOR OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:34.000
  • HE'S SAYING GOD, GIVE ME THE THINGS I NEED PHYSICALLY
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:37.220
  • IN ORDER TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:39.160
  • NOW, THAT OF COURSE LEADS TO A SECOND QUESTION,
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:41.230
  • WHY SHOULD WE PRAY THIS PRAYER?
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:43.290
  • WHY DO WE REALLY NEED TO ASK GOD TO DAILY TAKE CARE
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:47.270
  • OF OUR PHYSICAL NEEDS WHEN IT REALLY DOESN'T SEEM
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:50.190
  • WE NEED HIM TO DO THAT?
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:52.180
  • I MEAN, DO YOU REALLY ASK GOD
  • 00:05:52.190 --> 00:05:54.100
  • TO GIVE YOU THE FOOD YOU NEED FOR THAT DAY?
  • 00:05:54.110 --> 00:05:57.200
  • I FORGOT WHERE I WAS WHEN I HEARD A MOTHER SAY
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:06:00.290
  • WHENEVER I ANNOUNCE DINNER TIME AROUND THE HOUSE,
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:03.250
  • MY KIDS AUTOMATICALLY JUMP IN THE CAR,
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.180
  • KNOWING WE'RE GOING TO MCDONALD'S.
  • 00:06:05.190 --> 00:06:10.190
  • THEY DON'T EVEN NEED THEIR MOTHER TO PROVIDE FOOD,
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:13.110
  • MICKEY D'S WILL DO THAT FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:16.090
  • SO WHY DO WE ASK GOD TO PROVIDE OUR FOOD?
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:19.040
  • IT'S VERY HARD TO PRAY THIS SINCERELY FOR SOME PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:21.280
  • BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE KNOW THAT AFTER THEY GET UP
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:23.270
  • OFF THEIR KNEES ASKING GOD TO PROVIDE FOR THEIR DAILY NEEDS,
  • 00:06:23.280 --> 00:06:27.200
  • THEY'RE THE ONES WHO HAVE TO GO OUT AND EARN THE BREAD
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:30.060
  • TO BUY THE BREAD, DON'T THEY?
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.240
  • I MEAN, WE'RE THE ONES WHO HAVE TO WORK,
  • 00:06:31.250 --> 00:06:34.070
  • WE'RE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:06:34.080 --> 00:06:35.260
  • FOR PROVIDING FOR OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:38.130
  • WHY ARE WE ASKING GOD TO DO THIS?
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:40.220
  • I THINK THERE ARE TWO ANSWERS TO THAT,
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:42.160
  • I THINK JESUS TELLS US TO PRAY THIS PRAYER, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:45.100
  • TO ENCOURAGE OUR DEPENDENCE UPON GOD.
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:47.250
  • THIS PRAYER REMINDS US OF OUR ULTIMATE DEPENDENCE UPON GOD.
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:54.080
  • NOW, IT IS TRUE, AND I WANT YOU TO FOLLOW ME ON THIS,
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:55.140
  • IT IS TRUE THAT WORK IS THE CHANNEL
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:57.210
  • THROUGH WHICH GOD POURS HIS PROVISION
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:07:00.140
  • INTO OUR LIFE, THAT'S ALWAYS BEEN GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:03.040
  • THAT THROUGH OUR WORK, WE WOULD RECEIVE THE MONEY,
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:05.170
  • THE RESOURCES WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:08.080
  • AND OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:09.070
  • IN 1 TIMOTHY 5:8, PAUL SAID,
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:11.090
  • "IF ANY PERSON DOES NOT PROVIDE FOR HIS OWN,
  • 00:07:11.100 --> 00:07:13.230
  • "ESPECIALLY THOSE OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD,
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:15.280
  • "HE'S WORSE THAN AN UNBELIEVER
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:18.090
  • "AND IS DENIED THE FAITH."
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:19.260
  • 2 THESSALONIANS 3:10, PAUL SAID THIS IS MY RULE,
  • 00:07:19.270 --> 00:07:23.130
  • "IF A MAN DOES NOT WORK, NEITHER SHALL HE EAT."
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:28.110
  • NOW, THAT'S NOT ALWAYS EASY TO FIND A JOB TO WORK,
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:31.260
  • THERE ARE SOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:33.260
  • WHO ARE SUFFERING UNEMPLOYMENT.
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:35.110
  • I SAY THIS TO YOU THIS MORNING NOT TO MAKE YOU FEEL GUILTY,
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:38.050
  • YOU WOULD LOVE TO WORK IF YOU COULD FIND A JOB.
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:42.030
  • WHAT I'M SAYING IS GOD'S METHOD, USUALLY,
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:45.100
  • OF PROVIDING FOR US IS THROUGH THE JOBS THAT HE GIVES US.
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:49.290
  • BUT NOW FOLLOW ME ON THIS,
  • 00:07:50.000 --> 00:07:51.040
  • EVEN THOUGH WORK IS THE CHANNEL
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:53.040
  • THROUGH WHICH GOD POURS HIS BLESSINGS IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:55.120
  • ULTIMATELY, ALL OF OUR PHYSICAL PROVISIONS
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:58.130
  • COME FROM THE HAND OF GOD.
  • 00:07:58.140 --> 00:08:00.080
  • HE'S THE ONE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:02.130
  • FOR MEETING ALL OF OUR PHYSICAL NEEDS.
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:04.130
  • FOR EXAMPLE, THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT GOD IS THE ONE
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:07.060
  • WHO PROVIDES OUR FOOD, GOD'S THE ONE WHO PROVIDES IT.
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:10.140
  • LISTEN TO GENESIS 1:29-30,
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:13.050
  • "THEN GOD SAID, BEHOLD,
  • 00:08:13.060 --> 00:08:15.170
  • "I HAVE GIVEN YOU EVERY PLANT YIELDING SEED
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:18.080
  • "THAT IS ON THE SURFACE OF ALL THE EARTH,
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:20.160
  • "AND EVERY TREE WHICH HAS FRUIT YIELDING SEED,
  • 00:08:20.170 --> 00:08:23.160
  • "AND IT SHALL BE FOOD FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:25.270
  • "AND TO EVERY BEAST OF THE EARTH
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.110
  • "AND TO EVERY BIRD OF THE SKY
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:28.260
  • "AND TO EVERYTHING THAT MOVES ON THE EARTH WHICH HAS LIFE,
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:31.090
  • "I HAVE GIVEN EVERY GREEN PLANT FOR FOOD, AND IT WAS SO."
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:37.050
  • GOD'S THE ONE WHO GIVES US FOOD.
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.160
  • NOW, SOME OF YOU ARE THINKING YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, PASTOR,
  • 00:08:39.170 --> 00:08:42.160
  • BUT ULTIMATELY, THE REASON I GET MY PAYCHECK
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:45.250
  • IS BECAUSE OF MY INGENUITY, MY CREATIVITY,
  • 00:08:45.260 --> 00:08:50.030
  • MY HARD WORK, THAT'S WHAT PUTS THE BREAD ON THE TABLE.
  • 00:08:50.040 --> 00:08:55.030
  • NOW, IN CASE YOU'RE EVER TEMPTED TO THINK THAT,
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:57.240
  • REMEMBER, GOD NOT ONLY PROVIDES YOUR FOOD AND CLOTHING,
  • 00:08:57.250 --> 00:09:00.170
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HE PERFORMS YOUR ABILITIES.
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:03.190
  • HE GIVES YOU YOUR ABILITIES TO EVEN MAKE WEALTH,
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:07.140
  • GOD PROVIDES OUR ABILITIES.
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:10.080
  • LOOK AT DEUTERONOMY 8:18,
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:12.110
  • "BUT YOU SHALL REMEMBER THE LORD YOUR GOD,
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:15.100
  • "FOR IT IS HE WHO IS GIVING YOU THE POWER TO MAKE WEALTH."
  • 00:09:15.110 --> 00:09:21.280
  • EVERYTHING YOU HAVE COMES FROM GOD.
  • 00:09:23.090 --> 00:09:26.110
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANS 4:7,
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.280
  • PAUL ASKED THE CORINTHIANS A VERY, VERY PROBING QUESTION,
  • 00:09:27.290 --> 00:09:30.290
  • HE SAID CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:32.120
  • "WHAT IS IT YOU HAVE THAT YOU DID NOT RECEIVE?
  • 00:09:32.130 --> 00:09:36.010
  • "AND IF YOU RECEIVED IT,
  • 00:09:36.020 --> 00:09:37.090
  • "WHY DO YOU BOAST AS IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE IT?"
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:41.010
  • IN OTHER WORDS, PAUL WAS SAYING CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:09:41.020 --> 00:09:43.210
  • TAKE AN INVENTORY OF EVERYTHING YOU HAVE IN LIFE.
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:46.260
  • AS YOU LOOK OVER THAT INVENTORY,
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:49.040
  • WHAT IS IT THAT CANNOT ULTIMATELY
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:51.190
  • BE TRACED TO THE HAND OF GOD?
  • 00:09:51.200 --> 00:09:53.270
  • IT ALL COMES FROM GOD.
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:09:56.000
  • SECONDLY, JESUS TAUGHT US TO PRAY THIS PRAYER
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:58.220
  • BECAUSE THIS PRAYER DISCOURAGES MATERIALISM.
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:02.100
  • IT ENCOURAGES DEPENDENCE UPON GOD,
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:05.040
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT DISCOURAGES MATERIALISM.
  • 00:10:05.050 --> 00:10:08.260
  • WHEN JESUS TAUGHT US TO PRAY FOR OUR NEEDS,
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:11.280
  • HE DIDN'T SAY GIVE US THIS DAY
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:13.170
  • OUR DAILY T-BONE STEAK TO CONSUME,
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:16.290
  • HE DIDN'T SAY GIVE US THIS DAY OUR NEW BMW TO DRIVE,
  • 00:10:17.000 --> 00:10:20.250
  • INSTEAD HE SAID GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.
  • 00:10:20.260 --> 00:10:24.280
  • IN PHILIPPIANS 4:19, PAUL SAID,
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:27.010
  • "AND MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL YOUR" WHAT?
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:30.240
  • "ALL OF YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN CHRIST JESUS."
  • 00:10:30.250 --> 00:10:33.140
  • IT DIDN'T SAY MY GOD SHALL SATISFY ALL OF YOUR GREED.
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:37.160
  • INSTEAD, HE WILL SATISFY ALL OF YOUR NEEDS.
  • 00:10:37.170 --> 00:10:40.290
  • AND BY THE WAY, THIS MORNING,
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:42.210
  • IF YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE WHO HAS BEEN BLESSED MATERIALLY,
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:45.200
  • IF YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:46.180
  • WHO HAS BEEN BLESSED MATERIALLY,
  • 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:50.030
  • REALIZE IT'S NOT SO YOU CAN SPEND IT ON YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:53.000
  • YES, THERE'S NOTHING WRONG IN HAVING NICE THINGS AT ALL,
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:55.090
  • PAUL SAID IN PHILIPPIANS 4,
  • 00:10:55.100 --> 00:10:57.020
  • "I'VE LEARNED TO BE CONTENT
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:10:58.110
  • IN WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCE I'M IN."
  • 00:10:58.120 --> 00:10:59.260
  • I'VE LEARNED HOW TO ABOUND, THAT IS TO EXPERIENCE WEALTH,
  • 00:10:59.270 --> 00:11:03.000
  • BUT I'VE ALSO LEARNED HOW TO SUFFER NEED,
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:06.100
  • I'VE LEARNED TO BE CONTENT
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:07.170
  • IN WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCE I'M IN.
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:10.020
  • IF GOD HAS GRANTED YOU GREAT WEALTH,
  • 00:11:10.030 --> 00:11:11.290
  • IT'S NOT TO SPEND ON YOURSELF,
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:14.100
  • BUT IT'S TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:17.170
  • I THINK ABOUT ONE COUPLE IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:11:17.180 --> 00:11:20.170
  • THEY'VE GOT ENOUGH MONEY, MAN,
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.070
  • THEY COULD BUILD MANSIONS ALL AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:11:23.080 --> 00:11:25.220
  • IF THEY WANTED TO, THEY COULD HAVE ALL THESE JET AIRPLANES,
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:29.090
  • THEY COULD HAVE A LUXURIOUS LIFE,
  • 00:11:29.100 --> 00:11:32.130
  • BUT THEY CAME TO THE UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:11:32.140 --> 00:11:33.270
  • THAT'S NOT WHY GOD GRANTED THEM WEALTH, IN FACT,
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:36.170
  • GOD TOLD THIS MAN, HE SAID I WANT YOU TO START A BUSINESS,
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:40.290
  • AND I WANT YOU TO USE ALL THE PROFITS OF THAT BUSINESS
  • 00:11:41.000 --> 00:11:43.040
  • TO FURTHER MY WORK AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:11:43.050 --> 00:11:45.020
  • HE COULD'VE SPENT THE REST OF HIS LIFE
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:47.060
  • CHASING A GOLF BALL AROUND A GOLF COURSE SOMEWHERE,
  • 00:11:47.070 --> 00:11:49.150
  • BUT INSTEAD, HE USED THAT POWER TO MAKE WEALTH
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:52.080
  • TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:54.060
  • AND THAT'S THE REASON GOD BLESSES CHRISTIANS
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:56.100
  • WITH MATERIAL WEALTH, NOT TO SPEND IT ON THEMSELVES,
  • 00:11:56.110 --> 00:11:59.100
  • BUT ON HIS KINGDOM'S WORK.
  • 00:11:59.110 --> 00:12:02.280
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN WE PRAY THIS PRAYER,
  • 00:12:02.290 --> 00:12:04.210
  • GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:06.080
  • IT'S JUST A WAY TO REMIND US
  • 00:12:06.090 --> 00:12:07.240
  • NOT ONLY THAT WE DEPEND UPON GOD,
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:10.050
  • BUT ALSO TO REMIND US THAT THE GOAL IN LIFE
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:13.080
  • IS NOT THE ACCUMULATION OF ASSETS.
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:15.290
  • IT'S LIKE PAUL SAID IN 1 TIMOTHY 6:8,
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:17.270
  • "IF WE HAVE FOOD AND COVERING,
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:20.270
  • "WITH THESE THINGS WE SHOULD BE SATISFIED."
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:23.220
  • IF WE HAVE ENOUGH TO PUT IN, ENOUGH TO PUT ON,
  • 00:12:23.230 --> 00:12:26.190
  • SOMETHING TO PUT OVER OUR HEADS,
  • 00:12:26.200 --> 00:12:28.110
  • WE OUGHT TO BE CONTENT.
  • 00:12:28.120 --> 00:12:31.040
  • NOW, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT WHAT GOD MEANS
  • 00:12:31.050 --> 00:12:33.140
  • WHEN HE SAYS OUR DAILY BREAD,
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:34.290
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT ALL OF OUR PHYSICAL PROVISIONS.
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:37.130
  • WHY DO WE PRAY THIS PRAYER?
  • 00:12:37.140 --> 00:12:39.060
  • IT REMINDS US OF OUR DEPENDENCE UPON GOD,
  • 00:12:39.070 --> 00:12:41.090
  • IT DISCOURAGES MATERIALISM,
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:43.210
  • BUT THE MOST BASIC QUESTION THAT CAME TO MY MIND
  • 00:12:43.220 --> 00:12:48.030
  • WHEN I READ THIS VERSE IS ONE
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:50.290
  • THAT MOST OF US ARE AFRAID TO VOICE OUT LOUD,
  • 00:12:51.000 --> 00:12:53.080
  • WE DON'T WANNA BE STRUCK BY A LIGHTNING BOLT,
  • 00:12:53.090 --> 00:12:56.090
  • BUT IT'S A QUESTION MOST ALL OF US HAVE,
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:59.160
  • AND THAT'S THE QUESTION CAN I REALLY TRUST GOD
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:02.220
  • TO MEET MY PHYSICAL NEEDS?
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:05.110
  • CAN I REALLY DEPEND UPON GOD TO TREAT MY PHYSICAL NEEDS?
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:08.250
  • WHY WOULD ANYBODY ASK THAT?
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:10.110
  • THE ANSWER'S OBVIOUS WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND THE WORLD AND SEE
  • 00:13:10.120 --> 00:13:14.180
  • THAT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:17.060
  • ARE GOING TO BED HUNGRY EVERY NIGHT.
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:20.100
  • THE CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD ARE STARVING TO DEATH.
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:24.080
  • ISN'T IT NATURAL TO ASK THE QUESTION,
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.280
  • GOD, HOW CAN I REALLY DEPEND UPON YOU TO TAKE CARE OF ME
  • 00:13:25.290 --> 00:13:28.270
  • WHEN YOU'RE DOING SUCH A POOR JOB
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.100
  • OF TAKING CARE OF OTHER PEOPLE?
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:32.080
  • HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED THAT?
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:35.080
  • I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT I WONDERED WHEN I READ THIS VERSE,
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:37.140
  • GOD, HOW CAN I BE SURE YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:39.220
  • TAKE CARE OF MY PHYSICAL NEEDS WHEN YOU'RE LETTING
  • 00:13:39.230 --> 00:13:42.030
  • PEOPLE STARVE TO DEATH AROUND THE WORLD?
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:45.280
  • I THINK THERE ARE REALLY TWO ANSWERS TO THAT QUESTION,
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:47.160
  • TWO INSIGHTS FROM SCRIPTURE, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:49.140
  • WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT UNBELIEVERS
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:51.290
  • DO NOT HAVE THE GUARANTEE OF GOD'S PROVISION.
  • 00:13:52.000 --> 00:13:55.070
  • UNBELIEVERS DO NOT HAVE A GUARANTEE OF GOD'S CARE
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:57.280
  • AND PROVISION IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:13:57.290 --> 00:13:59.160
  • I KNOW THAT'S POLITICALLY INCORRECT TO SAY,
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:01.150
  • BUT IT'S THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:14:01.160 --> 00:14:03.170
  • THERE IS NO PROMISE ANYWHERE IN SCRIPTURE
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.140
  • WHEN GOD SAYS I'M GONNA TAKE CARE
  • 00:14:05.150 --> 00:14:06.230
  • OF EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD ON PLANET EARTH,
  • 00:14:06.240 --> 00:14:09.140
  • NEVER DID GOD PROMISE THAT,
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:11.130
  • HE ONLY PROMISES TO TAKE CARE OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:14.140
  • LISTEN TO PSALM 33:18 AND 19,
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:17.190
  • DAVID SAID, "BEHOLD, THE EYE OF THE LORD
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:19.240
  • "IS UPON THOSE WHO FEAR HIM,
  • 00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:22.160
  • "UPON THOSE WHOSE HOPE IN HIS MERCY,
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:25.150
  • "TO DELIVER THEIR SOUL FROM DEATH,
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:27.140
  • "AND TO KEEP THEM ALIVE IN TIME OF FAMINE."
  • 00:14:27.150 --> 00:14:31.240
  • WHO DOES GOD LISTEN TO, WHO DOES GOD CARE FOR?
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:34.110
  • THOSE WHO ARE THE RIGHTEOUS,
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:36.240
  • THE UNRIGHTEOUS HAVE NO GUARANTEE OF GOD'S PROTECTION.
  • 00:14:36.250 --> 00:14:40.240
  • IN FACT, LOOK THROUGH THE BIBLE,
  • 00:14:40.250 --> 00:14:42.080
  • YOU'LL FIND IN THE OLD TESTAMENT GOD USED FAMINE
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:44.290
  • MANY TIMES TO BRING HIS JUDGMENT UPON PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:45.000 --> 00:14:47.230
  • IN THE FUTURE DURING THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.130
  • GOD WILL USE FAMINE TO BRING HIS JUDGMENT UPON UNBELIEVERS,
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:53.060
  • IT SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISING THAT GOD WOULD USE FAMINE TODAY.
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:56.220
  • NOT ONLY IN A PASSIVE WAY, BUT AS AN ACTIVE WAY,
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:15:00.120
  • AS A SOURCE OF HIS JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:02.090
  • JOHN MCARTHUR MAKES AN INTERESTING INSIGHT,
  • 00:15:02.100 --> 00:15:04.190
  • HE SAYS THAT THE NATION'S SPIRITUALITY,
  • 00:15:04.200 --> 00:15:06.290
  • MANY TIMES, DETERMINES ITS LEVEL OF PROSPERITY.
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:10.260
  • WHEREVER THERE ARE CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:13.010
  • IN A NATION LIKE OURS, FOUNDED ON CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:15.260
  • THERE IS ALWAYS A HIGH VIEW OF HUMAN LIFE.
  • 00:15:15.270 --> 00:15:19.240
  • AND BECAUSE WE HAVE A HIGH VIEW
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:21.120
  • OF HUMAN LIFE IN OUR COUNTRY,
  • 00:15:21.130 --> 00:15:22.290
  • WE TAKE CARE OF PEOPLES' PHYSICAL NEEDS.
  • 00:15:23.000 --> 00:15:26.210
  • BUT YOU GO TO THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES,
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:29.050
  • THERE ISN'T A HIGH VIEW OF LIFE.
  • 00:15:29.060 --> 00:15:30.250
  • MANY TIMES, THE COUNTRY'S LACK OF SPIRITUALITY
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:34.130
  • OR THEIR WORSHIP OF FALSE RELIGIONS
  • 00:15:34.140 --> 00:15:36.130
  • LEADS TO A LOW VIEW OF HUMAN LIFE.
  • 00:15:36.140 --> 00:15:39.260
  • MANY TIMES, THE PROBLEM IS A SPIRITUAL PROBLEM,
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:43.290
  • AND MANY TIMES, FAMINE IS A JUDGMENT OF GOD UPON THE EARTH.
  • 00:15:44.000 --> 00:15:50.100
  • HOW DO YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION OF HOW CAN WE TRUST GOD
  • 00:15:50.110 --> 00:15:53.100
  • WHEN THERE'S SO MUCH POVERTY
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:55.240
  • AND SO MUCH HUNGER IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:57.040
  • WELL, ONE INSIGHT IS GOD NEVER PROMISED
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:59.160
  • TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:02.010
  • HE CERTAINLY NEVER PROMISED TO TAKE CARE OF UNBELIEVERS.
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:05.020
  • BUT THERE'S A SECOND PART OF THAT,
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.230
  • AND THAT IS BELIEVERS,
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:08.250
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE RELATED TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:11.200
  • DO HAVE THE PROMISE THAT GOD WILL MEET THEIR NEEDS.
  • 00:16:11.210 --> 00:16:14.180
  • GOD HAS PROMISED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:17.250
  • LISTEN TO PSALM 34:9 TO 10,
  • 00:16:17.260 --> 00:16:20.270
  • WE READ IT JUST A MOMENT AGO,
  • 00:16:20.280 --> 00:16:22.210
  • "O FEAR THE LORD, YOU HIS SAINTS,
  • 00:16:22.220 --> 00:16:25.170
  • "FOR TO THOSE WHO FEAR HIM THERE IS NO WANT.
  • 00:16:25.180 --> 00:16:28.240
  • "THE YOUNG LIONS DO LACK AND SUFFER HUNGER,
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:31.220
  • "BUT THEY WHO SEEK THE LORD
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:33.160
  • "SHALL NOT BE IN WANT OF ANY GOOD THING."
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:38.110
  • THE ANIMALS GO HUNGRY,
  • 00:16:38.120 --> 00:16:39.230
  • BUT THEY WHO FEAR THE LORD
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:41.170
  • ARE NOT GOING TO LACK ANY GOOD THING.
  • 00:16:41.180 --> 00:16:43.120
  • OR LISTEN TO DAVID'S WORDS IN PSALM 37:25,
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:46.080
  • "I HAVE BEEN YOUNG AND NOW I AM OLD,
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:50.070
  • "YET I HAVE NOT SEEN THE RIGHTEOUS FORSAKEN
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:53.020
  • "OR HIS DESCENDANTS BEGGING FOR BREAD."
  • 00:16:53.030 --> 00:16:55.290
  • DAVID SAID AT THE END OF US LIFE AS I LOOK BACK,
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:59.240
  • I CANNOT ONE TIME SAY I HAVE EVER SEEN A RIGHTEOUS PERSON
  • 00:16:59.250 --> 00:17:05.220
  • WHO HAS SUFFERED ANY NEED.
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:08.250
  • NOW, WHEN I READ THAT THIS WEEK,
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:10.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS?
  • 00:17:10.120 --> 00:17:11.220
  • I WANNA TELL YOU HOW UNHOLY YOUR PASTOR IS,
  • 00:17:11.230 --> 00:17:13.140
  • MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS WHEN I HEARD DAVID SAY
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:15.280
  • I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY RIGHTEOUS PERSON LACK ANY GOOD THING,
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:20.070
  • MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS DAVID,
  • 00:17:20.080 --> 00:17:21.160
  • YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF THE PALACE MORE OFTEN.
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:23.250
  • YOU NEED TO SEE LIFE AS IT REALLY IS,
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:27.140
  • YOU NEED TO TAKE THOSE KINGLY BLINDERS OFF OF YOUR EYES,
  • 00:17:27.150 --> 00:17:30.280
  • GO OUT AND WALK WITH THE COMMON PEOPLE
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:33.140
  • AND YOU'LL SEE MANY BELIEVERS,
  • 00:17:33.150 --> 00:17:35.280
  • MANY RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WHO SUFFER NEED.
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:39.030
  • HASN'T THAT BEEN THE TESTIMONY OF HISTORY?
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.250
  • THAT THERE HAVE BEEN CHRISTIANS
  • 00:17:41.260 --> 00:17:42.270
  • WHO HAVE SUFFERED GREAT NEED,
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:44.150
  • THERE ARE CHRISTIANS RIGHT NOW AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:46.030
  • WHO ARE SUFFERING GREAT NEED.
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:47.120
  • LISTEN TO THIS DESCRIPTION
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:48.240
  • OF HOW THE FIRST CENTURY BELIEVERS LIVED
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:50.250
  • FROM HEBREWS 11:36 AND 37,
  • 00:17:50.260 --> 00:17:54.060
  • "AND OTHER EXPERIENCED MOCKINGS AND SCOURGINGS,
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.290
  • "YES, ALSO CHAINS AND IMPRISONMENT.
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:17:59.190
  • "THEY WERE STONED, THEY WERE SAWN IN TWO,
  • 00:17:59.200 --> 00:18:02.220
  • "THEY WERE TEMPTED, THEY WERE PUT TO DEATH WITH THE SWORD,
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:05.230
  • "THEY WENT ABOUT IN SHEEPSKINS, IN GOATSKINS,
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:08.100
  • "BEING DESTITUTE, AFFLICTED, AND ILL-TREATED."
  • 00:18:08.110 --> 00:18:14.080
  • AND YET DAVID SAID THOSE WHO SEEK THE LORD
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:16.000
  • SHALL NEVER BE IN WANT.
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.070
  • HOW DO YOU RECONCILE THOSE TWO TRUTHS?
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:19.120
  • GOD SAID I'M GONNA MEET THE NEEDS OF EVERY TRUE BELIEVER,
  • 00:18:19.130 --> 00:18:22.170
  • AND YET WE LOOK AROUND AND SEE BELIEVERS SUFFERING WANT.
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:26.210
  • I THINK ONE WRITER SAID IT BEST
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.270
  • WHEN HE OBSERVED THIS PROMISE
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:32.100
  • APPLIES TO EVERY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:18:32.110 --> 00:18:34.280
  • FOR AS LONG AS GOD HAS HIM ON THIS EARTH.
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:38.160
  • GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEED, NOT YOUR GREEDS,
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:42.150
  • BUT YOUR NEED AS LONG AS YOU ARE HERE UPON THE EARTH.
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:46.220
  • BUT WHEN GOD IS READY TO TAKE YOU FROM THIS WORLD
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:49.200
  • TO THE NEXT WORLD, HE MIGHT USE ANY NUMBER OF MEANS
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:53.050
  • TO TRANSPORT YOU FROM THIS LIFE INTO THE NEXT LIFE.
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:55.220
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THIS PERISHABLE BODY
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.220
  • HAS TO PUT ON THE IMPERISHABLE,
  • 00:18:57.230 --> 00:18:59.170
  • THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY.
  • 00:18:59.180 --> 00:19:01.190
  • IN OTHER WORDS, DEATH IS A NECESSARY TRANSITION
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:04.190
  • FROM THIS LIFE INTO THE NEXT LIFE,
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:06.140
  • AND GOD, MANY TIMES, USES DIFFERENT VEHICLES
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:08.230
  • TO CARRY US INTO THE NEXT WORLD.
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.130
  • SOMETIMES HE USES ILLNESS,
  • 00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:12.280
  • SOMETIMES HE USES WHAT WE CALL AN ACCIDENT,
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:16.230
  • SOMETIMES HE MIGHT EVEN USE PHYSICAL NEEDS AND HUNGER,
  • 00:19:16.240 --> 00:19:23.040
  • AND EVEN STARVATION TO BRING US INTO HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:28.040
  • IN JANUARY OF 1852, THE LIFELESS BODY
  • 00:19:28.050 --> 00:19:30.190
  • OF A MAN NAMED ALLEN GARDINER, A MISSIONARY IN ENGLAND,
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:34.030
  • WAS FOUND IN A SHIPWRECK OFF OF TIERRA DEL FUEGO.
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:39.180
  • ALLEN GARDINER AND HIS TEAM HAD BEEN ON A MISSION JOURNEY
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:42.100
  • WHEN THEY WERE SHIPWRECKED,
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:43.240
  • AND THEY WAITED THERE ON THAT ISLAND FOR A RESCUE TEAM,
  • 00:19:43.250 --> 00:19:45.210
  • THEY WAITED WEEKS UPON WEEKS,
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:47.130
  • AND AS THEY WERE WAITING FOR THE RESCUE TEAM,
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:49.120
  • THEY WATCHED THEIR RATIONS
  • 00:19:49.130 --> 00:19:50.190
  • OF WATER AND FOOD SLOWLY DIMINISH.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:54.280
  • DURING THAT TIME OF STARVATION,
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:59.010
  • ALLEN GARDINER KEPT A SPIRITUAL JOURNAL
  • 00:19:59.020 --> 00:20:00.250
  • WHICH THE RESCUE TEAM DISCOVERED ONCE THEY CAME TOO LATE,
  • 00:20:00.260 --> 00:20:05.080
  • AND IN THAT JOURNAL,
  • 00:20:05.090 --> 00:20:06.240
  • ALLEN GARDINER WROTE WHAT GOD WAS DOING IN HIS LIFE
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:09.160
  • DURING THOSE TIMES OF DEHYDRATION AND STARVATION.
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:13.130
  • IN ONE JOURNAL ENTRY,
  • 00:20:13.140 --> 00:20:14.290
  • HE SAID THAT HIS THIRST HAD BECOME ALMOST INTOLERABLE.
  • 00:20:15.000 --> 00:20:20.130
  • ALLEN GARDINER AND HIS TEAM DIED ON THAT ISLAND,
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:23.190
  • ALONE, ISOLATED, PHYSICALLY BROKEN,
  • 00:20:23.200 --> 00:20:27.110
  • AND YET, THROUGHOUT THAT ORDEAL,
  • 00:20:27.120 --> 00:20:29.030
  • THEIR FAITH IN GOD REMAINED STRONG.
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:31.280
  • A LATER ENTRY IN THAT JOURNAL,
  • 00:20:31.290 --> 00:20:34.010
  • ALLEN GARDINER, WITH HIS OWN HANDS,
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:36.010
  • WROTE OUT THE VERSE THAT WE READ JUST A MOMENT AGO,
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:39.030
  • PSALM 34:9 AND 10, NOW LISTEN,
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:41.260
  • HERE'S THE WORDS OF A MAN WHO IS STARVING TO DEATH
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:44.160
  • ON AN ISLAND, HE WROTE,
  • 00:20:44.170 --> 00:20:46.110
  • "THE YOUNG LIONS DO LACK AND SUFFER HUNGER,
  • 00:20:46.120 --> 00:20:49.220
  • "BUT THEY THAT SEEK THE LORD SHALL NOT WANT ANY GOOD THING."
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:55.150
  • THE LAST ENTRY IN HIS JOURNAL,
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:58.090
  • WRITTEN IN THE FEEBLE HANDWRITING
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:21:00.020
  • THAT WOULD ACCOMPANY STARVATION,
  • 00:21:00.030 --> 00:21:01.180
  • THE VERY LAST LINE IN THAT JOURNAL WERE THESE WORDS,
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:07.130
  • ALLEN GARDINER MANAGED TO WRITE,
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:09.230
  • "I AM OVERWHELMED WITH A SENSE OF THE GOODNESS OF GOD."
  • 00:21:09.240 --> 00:21:15.280
  • ISN'T THAT AMAZING?
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:18.190
  • STARVING TO DEATH, I'M OVERWHELMED BY A SENSE
  • 00:21:18.200 --> 00:21:22.120
  • OF THE GOODNESS OF GOD.
  • 00:21:22.130 --> 00:21:24.170
  • GOD PROMISES TO TAKE CARE OF EVERY NEED YOU HAVE
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:30.120
  • UNTIL HE'S READY TO TAKE YOU
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:31.160
  • FROM THIS LIFE INTO THE NEXT ONE.
  • 00:21:31.170 --> 00:21:33.280
  • BUT UNTIL THAT TIME, HIS PROVISION IS CERTAIN.
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:38.290
  • CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON SAID,
  • 00:21:39.000 --> 00:21:42.020
  • "DO YOU THINK THAT THE GOD WHO NAMES THE STARS
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:46.140
  • "AND CALLS THEM BY NAME,
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:48.100
  • "DO YOU THINK THAT GOD IS ABOUT TO FORGET
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:50.100
  • "ONE OF HIS OWN CHILDREN?"
  • 00:21:50.110 --> 00:21:52.190
  • GOD KNOWS YOUR CASE AS THOROUGHLY
  • 00:21:52.200 --> 00:21:55.110
  • AS IF YOU WERE THE ONLY CREATURE HE EVER MADE,
  • 00:21:55.120 --> 00:21:59.030
  • AND THE ONLY SAINT HE EVER LOVED.
  • 00:21:59.040 --> 00:22:03.040
  • GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU.
  • 00:22:03.050 --> 00:22:06.180
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:12.100
  • OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS BEEN GRACIOUS
  • 00:22:12.110 --> 00:22:14.210
  • TO SUPPLY OUR EVERY NEED,
  • 00:22:14.220 --> 00:22:17.110
  • AND IT WAS JESUS WHO TAUGHT US TO PRAY
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:19.230
  • GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.
  • 00:22:19.240 --> 00:22:23.040
  • WELL, SEVERAL YEARS AGO,
  • 00:22:23.050 --> 00:22:25.020
  • OUR MINISTRY DECIDED TO PROVIDE SOMETHING TANGIBLE
  • 00:22:25.030 --> 00:22:28.030
  • FOR OUR LISTENERS AND VIEWERS,

  • SOMETHING THAT WOULD PROVIDE SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE
  • 00:22:30.090 --> 00:22:32.260
  • AND NOURISHMENT.
  • 00:22:32.270 --> 00:22:34.110

  • 00:22:34.120 --> 00:22:36.200
  • WE LAUNCHED PATHWAY MAGAZINE.
