  • - Some of the stuff
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:06.020
  • that was sent against you
  • 00:00:06.020 --> 00:00:08.160
  • was not sent to destroy you.
  • 00:00:08.160 --> 00:00:10.260
  • Whatever you went through
  • 00:00:10.260 --> 00:00:12.260
  • that did not destroy you,
  • 00:00:12.260 --> 00:00:15.140
  • God is now going to use
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:18.030
  • to deliver you.
  • 00:00:18.030 --> 00:00:20.170
  • It's not meant to kill you,
  • 00:00:20.170 --> 00:00:22.110
  • it's meant to kill
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:23.140
  • your enemies.
  • 00:00:23.140 --> 00:00:25.140
  • Now I know why I went through.
  • 00:00:25.140 --> 00:00:27.270
  • There were some things
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:28.180
  • that God had to kill
  • 00:00:28.180 --> 00:00:30.090
  • so they wouldn't kill me.
  • 00:00:30.090 --> 00:00:32.290
  • - This is the crazy thing
  • 00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:40.040
  • about God when He brings you
  • 00:00:40.040 --> 00:00:42.050
  • out of something,
  • 00:00:42.050 --> 00:00:44.000
  • He does not let you choose
  • 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:46.190
  • your escape route.
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:48.140
  • Because I should probably
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:53.090
  • talk about this
  • 00:00:53.090 --> 00:00:55.120
  • because there is a Bible verse
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:57.090
  • that says,
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:57.270
  • "God will not allow you
  • 00:00:57.270 --> 00:00:59.110
  • to be tempted
  • 00:00:59.110 --> 00:00:59.290
  • beyond what you're able,
  • 00:00:59.290 --> 00:01:01.160
  • that with the temptation,
  • 00:01:01.160 --> 00:01:03.120
  • He will provide
  • 00:01:03.120 --> 00:01:04.210
  • the way of escape."
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:06.080
  • But it promises He will provide
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:08.040
  • the way of escape,
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:10.000
  • it does not promise
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:10.240
  • that He will let you pick
  • 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:12.030
  • the way of escape.
  • 00:01:12.030 --> 00:01:14.030
  • It is not a multiple-choice.
  • 00:01:14.030 --> 00:01:16.130
  • It is not a choose
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.150
  • your own adventure escape route.
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:19.200
  • So God's way of escape
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:21.210
  • is not up for debate.
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:23.130
  • When God calls you out,
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:24.170
  • He leads you sometimes
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:26.290
  • in strange ways,
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:30.210
  • which is why they must
  • 00:01:30.210 --> 00:01:31.230
  • have been so disappointed
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:35.030
  • when Moses took them
  • 00:01:35.030 --> 00:01:37.020
  • on those back country roads
  • 00:01:37.130 --> 00:01:40.130
  • to camp out
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:40.280
  • right in front of the Red Sea.
  • 00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:44.250
  • Because it would
  • 00:01:44.250 --> 00:01:45.100
  • have been shorter,
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:46.060
  • even the Bible says
  • 00:01:46.060 --> 00:01:47.010
  • it would have been shorter,
  • 00:01:47.010 --> 00:01:48.200
  • it wasn't just their opinion,
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:50.000
  • the Bible says
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:50.260
  • it would have been shorter
  • 00:01:50.260 --> 00:01:52.110
  • if they would have gone through
  • 00:01:52.110 --> 00:01:53.170
  • Philistine country,
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.270
  • but they weren't ready
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:56.140
  • A lot of times
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:01.210
  • when God brings you
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:02.120
  • from Point A to Point B,
  • 00:02:02.130 --> 00:02:05.130
  • He takes you on a zigzag
  • 00:02:05.130 --> 00:02:08.090
  • because He knows,
  • 00:02:08.090 --> 00:02:09.150
  • and I don't mean
  • 00:02:09.150 --> 00:02:10.020
  • to hurt your feelings,
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:12.030
  • how fragile your faith
  • 00:02:12.030 --> 00:02:14.000
  • is even if you don't.
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:14.270
  • And so He brings them out
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:22.040
  • on a way of escape that to them
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:24.030
  • must have seem long.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.260
  • But they could deal with it.
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:26.190
  • They didn't complain about that.
  • 00:02:26.190 --> 00:02:28.240
  • What must have seemed
  • 00:02:28.240 --> 00:02:30.000
  • really weird to them
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:32.150
  • was when they heard
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:34.220
  • the wheels of the chariots,
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:38.110
  • the horsepower of the engines
  • 00:02:38.110 --> 00:02:41.090
  • of Pharaoh's 600 chosen chariots
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:44.240
  • coming up behind them
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:46.090
  • when they thought
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:47.160
  • they had left Egypt
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:48.200
  • and they were done with that.
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:51.000
  • Now we're at the text
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:52.290
  • in Verse 26
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:54.280
  • where the Lord said to Moses,
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:57.060
  • "Stretch out your hand..."
  • 00:02:57.060 --> 00:02:58.090
  • I'm so excited
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:02:59.050
  • to share this with you.
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:00.080
  • God showed me something
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:00.290
  • this week that was so cool
  • 00:03:00.290 --> 00:03:02.120
  • because the first time Moses
  • 00:03:02.120 --> 00:03:04.050
  • stretched out his hand,
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:06.270
  • which had a staff in it,
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:08.210
  • the sea parted
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:10.060
  • so that the Israelites
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:11.240
  • could go through
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:13.060
  • so that they could walk through
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:15.090
  • what they shouldn't
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:15.270
  • have been able to walk through.
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:18.000
  • Now there're some things
  • 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:19.030
  • that God did in your life
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:20.190
  • this year with a strong
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:21.280
  • east wind
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:23.110
  • that if He didn't do
  • 00:03:23.110 --> 00:03:24.270
  • those things,
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:26.100
  • you wouldn't have been able
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:27.270
  • to go through.
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:29.140
  • Within yourself --
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:30.240
  • come on admit it,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:31.190
  • within your own strength
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:33.280
  • with your DNA
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:35.230
  • and with your dad
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:37.050
  • and your mom
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:38.040
  • and their genes
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:39.120
  • still kicking around
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:40.080
  • in a cage fight inside of you,
  • 00:03:40.080 --> 00:03:43.070
  • you would not have gone
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:45.080
  • through it,
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:46.180
  • you would have stopped
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:47.170
  • in the middle of it,
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:49.010
  • and you would have drowned.
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.030
  • But one thing about God is
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:52.020
  • He is only known
  • 00:03:52.020 --> 00:03:53.160
  • by the evidence of what He does,
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:55.080
  • He has not experienced directly.
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:57.260
  • The Bible says
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:03:58.270
  • that the reason
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:03:59.180
  • they went through
  • 00:03:59.180 --> 00:04:00.240
  • is because a wind blew
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.030
  • from the east
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.090
  • and made the waters
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:04.100
  • stand at attention
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:05.230
  • so that the people
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:06.230
  • could go through.
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:08.120
  • Now, you can't see wind,
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:10.170
  • you can only see
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:11.140
  • the effects of the wind.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:13.080
  • You ask me how
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:14.050
  • I know God is real,
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:15.200
  • I can't point
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:16.120
  • to His nose or His ears,
  • 00:04:16.120 --> 00:04:19.040
  • I've never heard
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:20.060
  • His audible voice,
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:21.090
  • but there are just some things
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:23.030
  • in my life
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:24.090
  • that don't make sense
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:26.050
  • unless there was a wind blowing.
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:28.250
  • [cheering]
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:30.010
  • There are just some things --
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:30.290
  • How about you?
  • 00:04:30.290 --> 00:04:31.260
  • There are just some things
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:34.250
  • that I went through
  • 00:04:34.250 --> 00:04:37.140
  • that I know me
  • 00:04:37.140 --> 00:04:38.170
  • and I would not have had
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.170
  • the grace to go through
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:42.260
  • it if there hadn't been
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:43.200
  • something working with me.
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.060
  • Now let's get into the text.
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:53.240
  • This is a good part.
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:55.200
  • Touch somebody, say,
  • 00:04:55.200 --> 00:04:56.040
  • "Come through."
  • 00:04:56.040 --> 00:04:57.240
  • So Moses is stretching out
  • 00:04:57.240 --> 00:04:58.260
  • his staff so the people can --
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:01.160
  • - CONGREGATION: Come through.
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:03.230
  • - I'm trying
  • 00:05:03.230 --> 00:05:04.050
  • to get you tonight.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:07.070
  • I'm trying to get you tonight...
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:09.050
  • - CONGREGATION: Come through.
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:10.110
  • - ...to come through.
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:11.140
  • I think it would be ashamed
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:13.030
  • for you to be stuck
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.270
  • in an inferior version
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:16.180
  • of yourself
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:18.040
  • clutching onto a beta blessing
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:20.200
  • when there is an update
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:21.250
  • available in this house tonight
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:24.190
  • by the Spirit of God.
  • 00:05:25.060 --> 00:05:28.060
  • So I'm trying to get you
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:29.040
  • But by the time Verse 26 hits,
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:36.180
  • they've already done that.
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:39.000
  • They're already
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:39.140
  • on the other side.
  • 00:05:39.140 --> 00:05:41.050
  • I mean, you already
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:42.050
  • made it through 2018.
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:43.260
  • You don't have to come
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:44.140
  • to church for that.
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:45.090
  • The odds are good
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:46.050
  • you wouldn't have died
  • 00:05:46.050 --> 00:05:47.180
  • over these three hours
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:48.230
  • that you're gonna be in church.
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:49.230
  • You were good.
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:50.090
  • That's not why you came.
  • 00:05:50.090 --> 00:05:52.130
  • That is not why you came.
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:56.040
  • And sometimes we get so focused
  • 00:05:56.130 --> 00:05:59.130
  • ...and it makes sense
  • 00:06:07.080 --> 00:06:07.280
  • because it's traumatic.
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.250
  • I get it.
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:12.230
  • Well, I really don't.
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:13.110
  • I shouldn't say that.
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:14.020
  • That's not fair for me to say
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:14.290
  • 'cause I don't know
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:15.160
  • what you went through.
  • 00:06:15.160 --> 00:06:17.060
  • So how dare me stand up
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.140
  • here and say,
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.040
  • "I know what you..."
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:21.100
  • I don't know.
  • 00:06:21.100 --> 00:06:23.120
  • I know what I went through
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:25.140
  • this year,
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:27.050
  • and it wasn't all stuff
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:28.050
  • that you could see,
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.000
  • like this water
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:29.210
  • that was on either side
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:30.220
  • of the Israelites.
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.290
  • To me, it'd be easier
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:34.240
  • if everybody could watch you
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.130
  • go through
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.210
  • what you went through
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:39.040
  • so they could have
  • 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:39.230
  • some pity on you
  • 00:06:39.230 --> 00:06:41.080
  • and be extra nice to you
  • 00:06:41.080 --> 00:06:43.030
  • and give you extra sprinkles
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.000
  • on your cupcakes
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:46.000
  • because after all
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:48.000
  • if I went through
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:48.170
  • what you went through,
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.070
  • I'd be in a bad mood too.
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:52.260
  • Wouldn't it be cool
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:53.130
  • if everybody could see
  • 00:06:53.130 --> 00:06:54.070
  • what you went through
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:56.100
  • and they could experience,
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:06:57.240
  • you know, it'd be nice.
  • 00:06:58.270 --> 00:07:01.290
  • But every storm
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:02.160
  • that we survived this year
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:03.200
  • wasn't something
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:04.090
  • that other people could see.
  • 00:07:05.210 --> 00:07:08.210
  • It's one thing
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:09.050
  • when you walk through
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.000
  • something physical.
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:10.230
  • Like certain things
  • 00:07:10.230 --> 00:07:11.080
  • you go through,
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:11.290
  • people see you going
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:12.220
  • through it and it's like,
  • 00:07:12.220 --> 00:07:13.290
  • "Man, I heard your husband
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:15.210
  • has cancer.
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:16.140
  • We got you.
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:17.030
  • We'll pray for you.
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:18.010
  • We're gonna get through
  • 00:07:18.010 --> 00:07:19.190
  • this together.
  • 00:07:19.190 --> 00:07:21.080
  • You're gonna come through this.
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:22.010
  • We're gonna do it."
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:24.100
  • When you lose your job,
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:26.040
  • you know,
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:26.190
  • people hear about that.
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:27.210
  • Maybe you don't even
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:28.080
  • want 'em to,
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:28.250
  • but they hear about it
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:29.150
  • and then it's kind
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:31.060
  • of embarrassing on one hand
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.100
  • because everybody's coming up
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:33.220
  • to you, "You know,
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:34.090
  • we're praying for you.
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:34.260
  • If you need anything,
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:35.160
  • let us know.
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:36.040
  • I know you're going
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:36.200
  • through right now."
  • 00:07:36.230 --> 00:07:39.230
  • And although
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:40.070
  • that's a little humiliating
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:41.090
  • on one hand,
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:41.260
  • it's helpful on the other
  • 00:07:41.260 --> 00:07:42.220
  • because then you get to be
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:43.200
  • the beneficiary
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:44.110
  • of other people's empathy
  • 00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:46.220
  • and maybe even
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:47.080
  • their material support.
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:51.110
  • What's a little different
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:55.110
  • is when the thing
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.280
  • that you went through
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:58.210
  • is something
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:07:59.030
  • that you can point to
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:01.260
  • and directly name
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:04.140
  • because sometimes
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:05.110
  • I find myself
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:06.180
  • going through things
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:09.270
  • that aren't like the Red Sea.
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:13.030
  • It's not something
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:14.030
  • I can exactly describe to you.
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:17.270
  • Did you ever
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:18.150
  • go through something
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:20.050
  • and while you were going
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:20.240
  • through it, you didn't even know
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:22.290
  • what it was?
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:27.150
  • Just a funk,
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:31.000
  • just a thing,
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:32.240
  • just some stuff,
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:35.010
  • just I'm going through.
  • 00:08:35.010 --> 00:08:36.050
  • I even tell some people
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:37.220
  • that from time to time
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:38.180
  • that pray for me,
  • 00:08:38.180 --> 00:08:39.240
  • I'm like, "I'm just
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:40.210
  • going through."
  • 00:08:40.210 --> 00:08:42.200
  • I can't say what,
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:43.280
  • I don't even know.
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.030
  • It's like, the Bible describes
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:48.230
  • the arrow by day
  • 00:08:48.230 --> 00:08:49.290
  • or the terror at night.
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:51.190
  • And sometimes I think about
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:52.230
  • what you go through in the night
  • 00:08:52.230 --> 00:08:53.280
  • is you can't exactly
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:54.210
  • see it to name it
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:55.250
  • or to know what it is.
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:58.030
  • And in the passage
  • 00:08:58.030 --> 00:08:58.180
  • that I'm preaching
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:08:59.070
  • from tonight,
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:00.020
  • they were going through
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:01.130
  • what they went through,
  • 00:09:01.130 --> 00:09:02.150
  • was able to be seen visibly.
  • 00:09:02.150 --> 00:09:04.140
  • But maybe what you went through
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:05.190
  • this year wasn't.
  • 00:09:05.190 --> 00:09:07.040
  • Maybe it was a divorce,
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:09.050
  • maybe it was just
  • 00:09:09.050 --> 00:09:09.250
  • a loveless home,
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.250
  • but you're so good at faking
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:12.030
  • other people out
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:13.030
  • that they're all praying
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:14.070
  • they could have
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:14.240
  • a marriage like yours,
  • 00:09:14.240 --> 00:09:15.140
  • meanwhile yours
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:16.040
  • is falling apart.
  • 00:09:16.040 --> 00:09:17.070
  • Some of the things
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:18.040
  • that you go through --
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:21.050
  • What happened
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:21.200
  • to the praise party?
  • 00:09:21.200 --> 00:09:22.220
  • [laughter]
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:25.140
  • Some of the things
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:26.140
  • you go through aren't so simple.
  • 00:09:26.140 --> 00:09:29.080
  • Now although this is dramatic,
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:31.150
  • one advantage that they had is
  • 00:09:31.150 --> 00:09:33.190
  • they went through it together.
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:35.120
  • By this time,
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:36.270
  • the Israelites
  • 00:09:36.270 --> 00:09:37.090
  • are millions strong
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:39.100
  • and to go through something
  • 00:09:39.100 --> 00:09:41.030
  • with others
  • 00:09:41.030 --> 00:09:41.260
  • who were going through
  • 00:09:41.260 --> 00:09:42.180
  • the same thing
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:43.110
  • that you're going through
  • 00:09:43.110 --> 00:09:44.150
  • is one thing.
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:45.210
  • When the stock market sucks,
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:47.070
  • it sucks for all of us.
  • 00:09:47.070 --> 00:09:49.030
  • We get to go through
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:50.040
  • that together.
  • 00:09:50.040 --> 00:09:51.160
  • When the government
  • 00:09:51.160 --> 00:09:52.140
  • is out of control,
  • 00:09:52.140 --> 00:09:53.270
  • we all go through that together.
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:56.120
  • But there's something
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:09:57.060
  • about the things
  • 00:09:57.060 --> 00:09:58.010
  • that you go through
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:09:59.040
  • that nobody is going through
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.200
  • with you that makes it difficult
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:02.110
  • for you to know
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:03.090
  • is there something
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:03.270
  • wrong with me,
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:04.270
  • am I the only one
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:06.100
  • who feels this way,
  • 00:10:06.100 --> 00:10:07.250
  • am I the only one
  • 00:10:07.250 --> 00:10:09.060
  • who wants to quit,
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:10.150
  • am I the only one who wonders,
  • 00:10:10.150 --> 00:10:12.060
  • "God, are you really even there
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:13.190
  • or is this thing
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:14.190
  • I've been believing
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:15.170
  • my whole life just a fairy tale
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:17.050
  • that my parents told me
  • 00:10:17.050 --> 00:10:18.120
  • Some of the things
  • 00:10:22.150 --> 00:10:23.060
  • that we went through
  • 00:10:23.060 --> 00:10:24.080
  • this year were invisible.
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:26.190
  • Some of the things
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:27.060
  • we went through this year
  • 00:10:27.060 --> 00:10:28.040
  • were emotional states
  • 00:10:28.040 --> 00:10:29.150
  • and there wasn't even always
  • 00:10:29.150 --> 00:10:30.210
  • something that caused it.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.220
  • It would be nice if there was.
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:35.150
  • The miracle is in what
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:36.270
  • they went through.
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:40.000
  • The proof that you belong
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:42.190
  • to God is not
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:43.180
  • that you didn't go through,
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:46.030
  • but that what
  • 00:10:46.030 --> 00:10:47.060
  • you went through
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:48.150
  • didn't kill you.
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:50.100
  • I'm gonna need you to shout
  • 00:10:50.100 --> 00:10:51.200
  • right here on this point
  • 00:10:51.200 --> 00:10:53.110
  • whether you feel it
  • 00:10:53.110 --> 00:10:54.180
  • or not on every location.
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.280
  • Come on, tell somebody
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:04.040
  • I went through.
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:06.130
  • I went through.
  • 00:11:06.130 --> 00:11:07.120
  • I figured if I stand here
  • 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:08.230
  • in front of this Red Sea,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:10.120
  • I'm gonna die at the hands
  • 00:11:10.120 --> 00:11:11.270
  • of the same Egyptians
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.170
  • that have been terrorizing me,
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:15.180
  • but I'm not gonna stand
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:16.270
  • here and die.
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:17.220
  • If I'm gonna die,
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:18.210
  • I wanna drown.
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:20.030
  • I'm going through.
  • 00:11:20.030 --> 00:11:21.140
  • I'm going through.
  • 00:11:21.140 --> 00:11:22.140
  • If I'm gonna die,
  • 00:11:22.140 --> 00:11:23.130
  • I'm gonna die on my feet.
  • 00:11:23.130 --> 00:11:25.030
  • I'm going through.
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:27.040
  • Now...
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:29.050
  • Now...
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:34.180
  • Now...
  • 00:11:34.180 --> 00:11:36.140
  • God said,
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:36.270
  • "Don't you spend
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:37.130
  • this whole sermon talking
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:38.110
  • about what they went through."
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:40.250
  • He said, "Right in the middle
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:41.190
  • of the sermon,
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:42.290
  • I want you to shift it
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:44.230
  • from what they went through
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:47.100
  • And now we need to go back
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:52.160
  • to the text because remember,
  • 00:11:52.160 --> 00:11:53.280
  • there's water
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:54.280
  • on their right side,
  • 00:11:54.280 --> 00:11:56.250
  • water on their left side.
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:11:58.170
  • For their enemies,
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:11:59.190
  • it was a trap, but for them,
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:01.240
  • it was a path.
  • 00:12:01.240 --> 00:12:04.020
  • And now they're
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:15.280
  • on the other side
  • 00:12:15.280 --> 00:12:18.080
  • and so it seems strange
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:19.090
  • that God would tell them
  • 00:12:19.090 --> 00:12:20.050
  • to do anything other than run.
  • 00:12:20.290 --> 00:12:23.290
  • [laughter]
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:26.170
  • But He tells Moses
  • 00:12:26.170 --> 00:12:27.120
  • to do something
  • 00:12:27.120 --> 00:12:30.110
  • that God wants you
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.020
  • to do tonight.
  • 00:12:31.020 --> 00:12:34.000
  • And He says I want you
  • 00:12:34.000 --> 00:12:34.230
  • to take the instrument
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:35.260
  • in your hand,
  • 00:12:35.260 --> 00:12:37.140
  • that is a symbol of your past,
  • 00:12:38.080 --> 00:12:41.080
  • that is a symbol
  • 00:12:41.080 --> 00:12:41.240
  • of the mistakes
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:42.120
  • that you made when you killed
  • 00:12:42.120 --> 00:12:43.190
  • the Egyptian, Moses,
  • 00:12:43.190 --> 00:12:44.250
  • and ran and hid him
  • 00:12:44.250 --> 00:12:46.090
  • in the sand and hid yourself.
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:49.150
  • The staff that is the symbol
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:50.150
  • of your potential.
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:52.270
  • The same one that you used
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:53.260
  • to turn Nile River to blood
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:59.140
  • in those ten plagues of Egypt.
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:01.230
  • I want you to take
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:02.170
  • that same instrument
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:05.050
  • and before you leave Egypt,
  • 00:13:06.040 --> 00:13:09.040
  • stretch it back over
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:12.220
  • what you just went through.
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:15.150
  • And when you do,
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:17.270
  • you will understand
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:18.120
  • the purpose
  • 00:13:18.120 --> 00:13:19.280
  • of what you went through.
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:23.220
  • God brought you here tonight --
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:25.250
  • If I can be so bold
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:26.210
  • just to say that I believe
  • 00:13:26.210 --> 00:13:27.250
  • this applies
  • 00:13:27.250 --> 00:13:28.120
  • to everyone in the room
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:29.240
  • who will have the faith
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:30.130
  • to receive it
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:32.140
  • because He wants to use
  • 00:13:32.140 --> 00:13:34.090
  • what you went through.
  • 00:13:34.270 --> 00:13:37.270
  • That's the good news.
  • 00:13:37.270 --> 00:13:40.150
  • Gotta tell you the whole thing.
  • 00:13:40.150 --> 00:13:43.090
  • God wants to use
  • 00:13:43.090 --> 00:13:44.010
  • what you went through
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:46.060
  • and so does the devil.
  • 00:13:46.270 --> 00:13:49.270
  • And the question in this moment
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:53.290
  • is will you allow God
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:59.110
  • to use what you went through?
  • 00:13:59.110 --> 00:14:02.080
  • Watch this.
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:03.180
  • And when He had finished
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.050
  • leading an entire nation
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:07.140
  • all night long in the dark
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:10.090
  • with water that could collapse
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:12.190
  • on them at any moment,
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.180
  • don't you think they moved fast
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:17.090
  • through this tunnel
  • 00:14:17.090 --> 00:14:18.150
  • of supernatural,
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:19.280
  • miraculous potential death
  • 00:14:19.280 --> 00:14:22.140
  • that at any moment
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.170
  • could sweep them away
  • 00:14:23.170 --> 00:14:25.050
  • and they make it
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:25.210
  • to the other side
  • 00:14:25.210 --> 00:14:26.210
  • and God says, "Stop.
  • 00:14:26.210 --> 00:14:28.280
  • Before you take another step,
  • 00:14:28.280 --> 00:14:31.090
  • I need you to stretch
  • 00:14:31.090 --> 00:14:32.150
  • your hand back over
  • 00:14:32.150 --> 00:14:35.130
  • what you just went through."
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:38.140
  • The water that you just
  • 00:14:38.140 --> 00:14:40.100
  • went through
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:41.220
  • was not sent to destroy you.
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:45.000
  • Can I tell you something?
  • 00:14:45.000 --> 00:14:46.060
  • Everything that made you afraid
  • 00:14:46.060 --> 00:14:47.250
  • this year was not the devil.
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:49.290
  • Everything that made you cry
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:51.110
  • this year was not the devil.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:53.170
  • Everything that broke your heart
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:55.080
  • this year was not the devil.
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:57.050
  • Everything that you lost
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:58.140
  • this year was not the devil.
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:15:00.190
  • Everything that didn't go
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.020
  • according to plan this year
  • 00:15:02.020 --> 00:15:03.200
  • was not the devil.
  • 00:15:03.200 --> 00:15:05.040
  • Some of the stuff
  • 00:15:05.040 --> 00:15:06.070
  • that was sent against you
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:08.210
  • was not sent to destroy you.
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:11.030
  • At the time,
  • 00:15:11.030 --> 00:15:11.200
  • it felt like it would.
  • 00:15:11.200 --> 00:15:13.080
  • At the time, you felt like
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:14.140
  • you would never be happy again.
  • 00:15:14.140 --> 00:15:15.260
  • At the time, you felt like
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:17.120
  • you would just drive away
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:18.280
  • and never come back.
  • 00:15:18.280 --> 00:15:20.030
  • At the time, you felt like
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.140
  • you would never find that love,
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:22.240
  • that passion,
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:23.250
  • that feeling again.
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:25.120
  • At the time, it felt like
  • 00:15:25.120 --> 00:15:26.190
  • it would kill you.
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:28.020
  • But the thing
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:28.210
  • that you went through
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:29.290
  • was not meant to destroy you.
  • 00:15:29.290 --> 00:15:32.050
  • And when you stretch your hand
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:34.240
  • over what you went through,
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:36.180
  • what you went through
  • 00:15:36.180 --> 00:15:38.070
  • is going to deliver you
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:40.080
  • from what you just came out of.
  • 00:15:40.080 --> 00:15:43.020
  • Let me see
  • 00:15:48.020 --> 00:15:48.180
  • if I got this right.
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:50.290
  • What I went through
  • 00:15:50.290 --> 00:15:53.050
  • could have killed me,
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:54.210
  • but it didn't.
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:57.000
  • Hit somebody, say,
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:57.180
  • "But it didn't."
  • 00:15:57.180 --> 00:15:59.250
  • It didn't.
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:00.290
  • I could have laid down
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:02.020
  • and died in what I went through.
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:04.180
  • Touch them, say,
  • 00:16:04.180 --> 00:16:05.030
  • "But I didn't."
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.240
  • Tell 'em,
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:07.100
  • "I could've lost my mind."
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:10.230
  • But I --
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:13.030
  • I don't know, maybe you did.
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:14.110
  • But here's the point
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:15.040
  • of the message.
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:16.240
  • Here's the point of the message,
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:18.220
  • whatever you went through
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:21.050
  • that did not destroy you,
  • 00:16:21.050 --> 00:16:23.100
  • God is now going to use
  • 00:16:23.100 --> 00:16:25.270
  • to deliver you.
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:29.150
  • Come to this side to see
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:30.130
  • if you believe the Word of God.
  • 00:16:30.130 --> 00:16:32.130
  • It's in the B-I-B-L-E.
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:35.070
  • He said what
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:36.120
  • you just went through,
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:38.020
  • if you will stop
  • 00:16:38.020 --> 00:16:39.150
  • at this moment,
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:40.220
  • at this juncture,
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:41.290
  • in this time,
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:43.000
  • in this season,
  • 00:16:43.000 --> 00:16:44.150
  • and stretch your hand
  • 00:16:44.150 --> 00:16:46.130
  • over what you went through,
  • 00:16:47.110 --> 00:16:50.110
  • it's not meant to kill you.
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:52.160
  • It's meant to kill your enemies.
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:55.160
  • It was never gonna kill you.
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:59.230
  • No weapon formed
  • 00:16:59.230 --> 00:17:01.110
  • against you shall...
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:04.130
  • Now I know why
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:11.160
  • I went through.
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:13.140
  • There were some things
  • 00:17:13.140 --> 00:17:14.040
  • that God had to kill
  • 00:17:14.040 --> 00:17:15.280
  • so they wouldn't kill me.
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:18.140
  • That's why I went through.
  • 00:17:18.140 --> 00:17:20.240
  • God had to deal
  • 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:31.110
  • with some things in me.
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:34.140
  • Enemy.
  • 00:17:34.140 --> 00:17:36.040
  • Enemy.
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:37.270
  • God had to drown
  • 00:17:37.270 --> 00:17:38.240
  • some of my enemy.
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:44.080
  • So when I look back over
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.010
  • at what I thought
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:52.180
  • I wouldn't get through
  • 00:17:52.180 --> 00:17:54.160
  • and I see --
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:55.180
  • Look at Verse 30.
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:56.150
  • I didn't give you that,
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:57.110
  • did I?
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:57.280
  • I forgot to give you
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:58.170
  • Verse 30.
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:17:59.050
  • I'm so sorry.
  • 00:17:59.050 --> 00:17:59.280
  • And so when they
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:00.250
  • looked back...
  • 00:18:00.250 --> 00:18:03.030
  • "That the Lord saved Israel
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:04.040
  • from the hands of the Egyptians,
  • 00:18:04.040 --> 00:18:06.040
  • and Israel saw the Egyptians
  • 00:18:06.040 --> 00:18:08.240
  • lying dead on the shore."
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:10.280
  • Now, what do you
  • 00:18:10.280 --> 00:18:11.160
  • wanna look at this year?
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.130
  • What you went through
  • 00:18:16.250 --> 00:18:19.250
  • or what God did in you
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:23.130
  • through what you went through?
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:24.210
  • God deliver me.
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:33.280
  • You know He's not gonna do that
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:38.020
  • in a cute, comfortable,
  • 00:18:38.270 --> 00:18:41.270
  • convenient place.
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:46.130
  • And the Lord gave me this word,
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:49.080
  • it's more like an image
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:49.290
  • from the text.
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:52.060
  • He said that Moses,
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:55.010
  • the way I saw it
  • 00:18:55.010 --> 00:18:55.190
  • in my mind was
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:57.200
  • that the water
  • 00:18:57.200 --> 00:18:58.110
  • had done something supernatural
  • 00:18:58.110 --> 00:19:00.070
  • all night long so the Israelites
  • 00:19:00.070 --> 00:19:01.240
  • could get through.
  • 00:19:01.240 --> 00:19:04.150
  • God kept stuff away
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:06.130
  • from you this year
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:08.270
  • so you could get through.
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:11.040
  • But when the time came
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:12.070
  • for them to leave,
  • 00:19:12.070 --> 00:19:13.040
  • God said, "Stop."
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:15.000
  • You got 22 minutes
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:16.140
  • left in the year
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:18.080
  • and before you're in such
  • 00:19:18.080 --> 00:19:19.140
  • a hurry to get out,
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:22.070
  • turn around, and stretch --
  • 00:19:22.070 --> 00:19:24.260
  • what's the verse --
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:25.280
  • Verse 28, "Stretch your staff
  • 00:19:26.100 --> 00:19:29.100
  • and the water flowed back
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:33.030
  • and covered the chariots."
  • 00:19:33.030 --> 00:19:34.200
  • "The water flowed back..."
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:37.030
  • So it had been like this
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:38.060
  • and then it went like that
  • 00:19:38.060 --> 00:19:39.270
  • and then the enemies
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:40.190
  • went like that
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.060
  • and the people of God
  • 00:19:42.060 --> 00:19:42.250
  • went like that.
  • 00:19:42.250 --> 00:19:44.000
  • So God said to tell you
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:46.120
  • it's time for you
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:48.000
  • to flip the flow.
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:50.080
  • Touch the person
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:50.290
  • on either side of you
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:51.280
  • and see if they can get it,
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:52.270
  • say, "Flip the flow."
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:54.250
  • It's been going this way,
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:56.200
  • it's been going this way,
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:58.050
  • all year long
  • 00:19:58.050 --> 00:19:58.270
  • it's been going this way,
  • 00:19:58.270 --> 00:20:00.140
  • but tonight we came
  • 00:20:00.140 --> 00:20:02.130
  • to flip the flow.
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:04.210
  • And everything
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:05.110
  • that was against me this year,
  • 00:20:05.110 --> 00:20:07.210
  • now Romans 8:28 says --
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:10.000
  • Oh, I got
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:10.170
  • a New Testament verse too,
  • 00:20:10.170 --> 00:20:12.010
  • "That all things
  • 00:20:12.100 --> 00:20:15.100
  • work together
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:17.020
  • for the good
  • 00:20:17.020 --> 00:20:19.060
  • of them that love the Lord."
  • 00:20:19.060 --> 00:20:21.140
  • Is that you?
  • 00:20:21.140 --> 00:20:22.260
  • Do you still love Him?
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:24.070
  • Is He still your friend?
  • 00:20:24.070 --> 00:20:26.020
  • Do you still trust Him
  • 00:20:26.020 --> 00:20:27.020
  • after what you went through?
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:29.170
  • If that's you,
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:30.220
  • then all things
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:34.070
  • work together.
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:37.080
  • High five 18 people,
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:38.200
  • say, "Flip the flow."
  • 00:20:38.200 --> 00:20:41.010
  • Flip the flow.
  • 00:20:41.010 --> 00:20:42.250
  • Instead of concentrating
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:48.230
  • on all the moments
  • 00:20:48.230 --> 00:20:49.210
  • that it didn't go
  • 00:20:49.210 --> 00:20:50.280
  • your way this year,
  • 00:20:50.280 --> 00:20:52.020
  • flip the flow.
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.020
  • What went right?
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:54.060
  • What did work out?
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:55.110
  • Who did stay?
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:56.200
  • Who did give you a hug?
  • 00:20:56.200 --> 00:20:58.110
  • How did He meet your needs?
  • 00:20:58.110 --> 00:21:00.030
  • How did He come through?
  • 00:21:00.030 --> 00:21:01.210
  • Flip the flow.
  • 00:21:07.200 --> 00:21:10.200
  • And stop focusing so much
  • 00:21:10.200 --> 00:21:12.290
  • on what you did or didn't get.
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:16.090
  • Maybe it isn't about what God
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:17.130
  • wanted to do for you this year
  • 00:21:17.130 --> 00:21:18.270
  • as much as it is about
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:19.230
  • what He wants to do
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:20.130
  • - Well, I don't know
  • 00:21:23.250 --> 00:21:24.130
  • if you're like me,
  • 00:21:24.130 --> 00:21:25.010
  • but it's easy for me
  • 00:21:25.010 --> 00:21:25.250
  • to feel stuck.
  • 00:21:25.250 --> 00:21:27.070
  • Stuck in a pattern,
  • 00:21:27.070 --> 00:21:28.210
  • stuck in a way of thinking,
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:30.160
  • even stuck in a mistake.
  • 00:21:30.160 --> 00:21:32.050
  • And all of a sudden,
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:33.080
  • it feels like all the progress
  • 00:21:33.080 --> 00:21:34.190
  • I've made was for nothing,
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.050
  • my priorities
  • 00:21:36.050 --> 00:21:36.190
  • are out of whack.
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:37.120
  • And once you know you're stuck,
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:40.060
  • it's difficult to find
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:41.100
  • your way out because
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:42.130
  • you've lost your momentum.
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:43.200
  • And I wonder if you find
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:44.150
  • yourself stuck in an area
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:45.200
  • of your life today?
  • 00:21:45.200 --> 00:21:47.030
  • Well, I want to tell you
  • 00:21:47.030 --> 00:21:47.250
  • about this new four part
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:48.290
  • "Flip the Flow".
  • 00:21:50.150 --> 00:21:51.210
  • It's one of my favorite titles
  • 00:21:51.210 --> 00:21:53.000
  • of a series ever,
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:54.150
  • but it's also some
  • 00:21:54.150 --> 00:21:55.090
  • of my favorite teaching.
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.250
  • We're talking about
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:57.170
  • turning it around,
  • 00:21:57.170 --> 00:21:58.210
  • getting your momentum headed
  • 00:21:58.210 --> 00:22:00.020
  • in the right direction.
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:01.190
  • This isn't just
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:02.060
  • a collection of sermons,
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:03.140
  • it's really a resource
  • 00:22:03.140 --> 00:22:04.220
  • for change.
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:06.000
  • And I'm excited to see
  • 00:22:06.000 --> 00:22:07.020
  • how God will use this
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:08.210
  • to redirect your life.
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:10.140
  • So stop whatever you're doing
  • 00:22:10.140 --> 00:22:11.250
  • right now, call or go online
  • 00:22:11.250 --> 00:22:13.250
  • and request your copy
  • 00:22:13.250 --> 00:22:15.070
  • of "Flip the Flow".
  • 00:22:15.070 --> 00:22:16.100
  • And here's a look
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:16.280
  • - When Moses had crossed over
  • 00:22:18.180 --> 00:22:20.090
  • the Red Sea
  • 00:22:20.090 --> 00:22:21.080
  • with the nation.
  • 00:22:21.080 --> 00:22:22.050
  • He stretched his staff
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:23.210
  • back over the sea
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:25.120
  • and that sea collapsed
  • 00:22:25.120 --> 00:22:26.190
  • on their enemies.
  • 00:22:26.190 --> 00:22:27.290
  • So God said to tell you,
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:30.020
  • it's time for you,
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:31.180
  • to flip the flow.
  • 00:22:31.180 --> 00:22:33.010
  • Instead of concentrating
  • 00:22:33.010 --> 00:22:34.070
  • on all the moments
  • 00:22:34.070 --> 00:22:35.080
  • that it didn't go your way
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:36.080
  • this year.
  • 00:22:36.080 --> 00:22:37.110
  • Flip the flow.
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.190
  • What went right?
  • 00:22:38.190 --> 00:22:39.160
  • What did work out?
  • 00:22:39.160 --> 00:22:40.230
  • Who did stay?
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:42.010
  • How did He meet your needs?
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:43.270
  • How did he come through?
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:45.160
  • Did He come through for you?
  • 00:22:45.250 --> 00:22:48.250
  • Let's flip it
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:49.190
  • from what we went through,
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:51.050
  • to why we went through.
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:53.170
  • God said I'm about
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:54.190
  • to flip everything
  • 00:22:54.190 --> 00:22:56.080
  • that you have been through
  • 00:22:56.080 --> 00:22:57.260
  • and it is going to now be
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.040
  • to your advantage.
  • 00:22:59.040 --> 00:23:01.030
  • If anybody flipped
  • 00:23:01.030 --> 00:23:01.260
  • the flow it was Jesus.
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:03.230
  • Every need that you experience
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:05.140
  • in your life is pointing you
  • 00:23:05.140 --> 00:23:07.140
  • to a deeper place in God
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:09.020
  • that you can access,
  • 00:23:09.020 --> 00:23:10.070
  • a deeper place of strength,
  • 00:23:10.070 --> 00:23:11.170
  • a deeper place of confidence.
  • 00:23:11.170 --> 00:23:13.080
  • If your help comes from Him,
  • 00:23:13.220 --> 00:23:16.220
  • you can predict in advance
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:19.110
  • how this comes out.
  • 00:23:19.110 --> 00:23:22.090
  • Even before I go through
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:23.180
  • the trial, I know
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:25.070
  • how this comes out
  • 00:23:25.070 --> 00:23:26.130
  • because he who began
  • 00:23:26.130 --> 00:23:28.020
  • a good work in me
  • 00:23:28.020 --> 00:23:30.110
  • will be faithful
  • 00:23:30.110 --> 00:23:31.280
  • to complete it.
  • 00:23:31.280 --> 00:23:33.150
  • Come on, let's flip it.
  • 00:23:33.150 --> 00:23:35.100
  • - ANNOUNCER: This could be
  • 00:23:38.060 --> 00:23:38.260
  • the momentum shift you need.
  • 00:23:38.260 --> 00:23:40.170
  • You're only one change away
  • 00:23:40.170 --> 00:23:41.150
  • from the life you desire.
  • 00:23:41.150 --> 00:23:43.190
  • Call or go online
  • 00:23:43.190 --> 00:23:44.120
  • now to receive your copy
  • 00:23:44.120 --> 00:23:45.150
  • - Are you hurting
  • 00:23:48.030 --> 00:23:49.240
  • And broken within
  • 00:23:49.270 --> 00:23:52.270
  • Overwhelmed by
  • 00:23:52.270 --> 00:23:54.140
  • The weight of your sin
  • 00:23:54.140 --> 00:23:57.110
  • Have you come to
  • 00:24:02.220 --> 00:24:04.210
  • The end of yourself
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:07.230
  • Do you thirst for a drink
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:10.040
  • From the well
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:12.080
  • O come to the altar
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:22.010
  • The Father's arms
  • 00:24:22.010 --> 00:24:24.000
  • Are open wide
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.270
  • Forgiveness was bought with
  • 00:24:28.240 --> 00:24:31.240
  • The precious blood
  • 00:24:31.240 --> 00:24:33.250
  • Leave behind
