  • Creflo: The second adjustment weneed to make to our spiritual
  • 00:01:58.398 --> 00:02:01.434
  • antenna that I believewill help you to be led by the
  • 00:02:01.467 --> 00:02:05.638
  • Spirit of God is learning how tolive a life of meekness.
  • 00:02:05.672 --> 00:02:09.108
  • Meekness.
  • 00:02:09.142 --> 00:02:11.077
  • It's something that we've heardas a part of the fruit of the
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:14.147
  • Spirit but I don't know if a lotof Christians really understand
  • 00:02:14.180 --> 00:02:16.516
  • how to live thislife of meekness.
  • 00:02:16.549 --> 00:02:19.452
  • When it comes to beingled by the Spirit of God,
  • 00:02:19.485 --> 00:02:23.156
  • I can't help but to think aboutMoses who got this assignment
  • 00:02:23.189 --> 00:02:28.261
  • from God and hestarted at age 80.
  • 00:02:28.294 --> 00:02:31.264
  • He absolutely had noidea how this works.
  • 00:02:31.297 --> 00:02:34.667
  • He totally had to depend on God.
  • 00:02:34.701 --> 00:02:38.338
  • The Bible said that Moses wasthe meekest man in all of the
  • 00:02:38.371 --> 00:02:41.474
  • earth so he hadaccess to the ways of God.
  • 00:02:41.507 --> 00:02:43.576
  • And today, you and I haveaccess to the ways of God.
  • 00:02:43.610 --> 00:02:46.779
  • Amen?
  • 00:02:46.813 --> 00:02:48.114
  • So what is meeknessand how does it operate?
  • 00:02:48.147 --> 00:02:50.950
  • What is meekness?
  • 00:02:50.984 --> 00:02:52.685
  • Let me show you oneother Scripture before
  • 00:02:52.719 --> 00:02:54.020
  • I get into this.
  • 00:02:54.053 --> 00:02:55.355
  • Matthew chapter 5 real quick.
  • 00:02:55.388 --> 00:02:57.123
  • Matthew chapter 5 and 5.
  • 00:02:57.156 --> 00:02:59.759
  • Jesus is talkinghere and he says,
  • 00:02:59.792 --> 00:03:01.127
  • "Blessed are the meek: forthey shall inherit the earth."
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:07.033
  • Boy, this subject of meeknessis--I could probably preach
  • 00:03:07.066 --> 00:03:10.637
  • a whole sermon onthat because it's so,
  • 00:03:10.670 --> 00:03:12.639
  • so very important.
  • 00:03:12.672 --> 00:03:13.973
  • And yet, we don't heara lot about it in church.
  • 00:03:14.007 --> 00:03:16.542
  • So meekness has a three-partdefinition and
  • 00:03:16.576 --> 00:03:19.312
  • I wanna give this to you.
  • 00:03:19.345 --> 00:03:20.647
  • Ready to write this downor however you wanna do it.
  • 00:03:20.680 --> 00:03:22.982
  • A person who ismeek, number one,
  • 00:03:23.016 --> 00:03:25.318
  • is self-controlled or slowto give or take offense.
  • 00:03:25.351 --> 00:03:32.425
  • So when I say,"self-controlled," I'm really
  • 00:03:32.458 --> 00:03:34.894
  • headed on this area of beingslow to give or to take offense.
  • 00:03:34.927 --> 00:03:41.768
  • You wanna be meek,you want guidance,
  • 00:03:41.801 --> 00:03:44.337
  • I'm gonna--self-controlis a gift.
  • 00:03:44.370 --> 00:03:47.940
  • What it says is, "I won'tallow my emotions to control me.
  • 00:03:47.974 --> 00:03:51.244
  • I won't allow my emotionsto take me where they
  • 00:03:51.277 --> 00:03:54.147
  • don't need to go.
  • 00:03:54.180 --> 00:03:55.948
  • I won't give offense andI won't take offense."
  • 00:03:55.982 --> 00:03:59.552
  • Who has offended you andstopped your anointing?
  • 00:03:59.585 --> 00:04:04.023
  • Who has offended you andstopped your progress?
  • 00:04:04.057 --> 00:04:07.026
  • Who has offended you and movedthe antenna where you're
  • 00:04:07.060 --> 00:04:13.599
  • no longer gettingthe transmission?
  • 00:04:13.633 --> 00:04:14.934
  • I used to hate it when thewind would blow and the antenna
  • 00:04:14.967 --> 00:04:17.103
  • would--who hasoffended you to do that?
  • 00:04:17.136 --> 00:04:20.173
  • And somehow another, how isit that you benefit
  • 00:04:20.206 --> 00:04:23.676
  • walking around offended?
  • 00:04:23.710 --> 00:04:25.278
  • You know, I realizeda while back that,
  • 00:04:25.311 --> 00:04:27.747
  • you know, I can't--nobodycan offend me.
  • 00:04:27.780 --> 00:04:31.718
  • I have to really get offended.
  • 00:04:31.751 --> 00:04:33.052
  • I have to take offense.
  • 00:04:33.086 --> 00:04:34.420
  • You know, people can do thingsbut you still have to take
  • 00:04:34.454 --> 00:04:36.622
  • offense and there's somethingabout this meek person that
  • 00:04:36.656 --> 00:04:40.393
  • says, "No, I--neither willI give nor take offense."
  • 00:04:40.426 --> 00:04:44.263
  • Stuff's gonna happento you all the time
  • 00:04:44.297 --> 00:04:46.499
  • while you're on the earth.
  • 00:04:46.532 --> 00:04:47.834
  • "In this world youshall have tribulation.
  • 00:04:47.867 --> 00:04:49.902
  • They that live godlyshall have trouble."
  • 00:04:49.936 --> 00:04:52.372
  • I think a lot of times, thatstuff is to help us to mature
  • 00:04:52.405 --> 00:04:55.541
  • and to grow so that whathappened ten years ago is
  • 00:04:55.575 --> 00:05:00.179
  • not happening today becauseof our spiritual maturity.
  • 00:05:00.213 --> 00:05:04.484
  • And you don't reallyget offended.
  • 00:05:05.017 --> 00:05:06.853
  • There's some people who areso--it's like walking around
  • 00:05:06.886 --> 00:05:11.958
  • with glass on the floor.
  • 00:05:11.991 --> 00:05:13.292
  • You understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:05:13.326 --> 00:05:14.627
  • And you know, "Hey,how are you doin'?"
  • 00:05:14.660 --> 00:05:17.397
  • "Well, how you think I'm doin'?"Like, whoa, wait a minute?
  • 00:05:17.430 --> 00:05:20.299
  • Why you say that?
  • 00:05:20.333 --> 00:05:21.634
  • I'm just kinda playingwith you, goddog.
  • 00:05:21.667 --> 00:05:25.304
  • So that's part of thatdefinition, and the second part
  • 00:05:25.338 --> 00:05:27.507
  • of meekness is being humblein spirit and lowly in mind.
  • 00:05:27.540 --> 00:05:33.913
  • Humble inspirit and lowly in mind.
  • 00:05:33.946 --> 00:05:36.816
  • You can think of humility, Idon't know what a lot of people
  • 00:05:36.849 --> 00:05:39.952
  • think about what--but whenyou're talking about real Bible
  • 00:05:39.986 --> 00:05:42.021
  • humility, you're talking aboutyou're willingness to submit
  • 00:05:42.054 --> 00:05:44.824
  • or to get under God's plans andinstructions for your life.
  • 00:05:44.857 --> 00:05:50.463
  • This humble man is gonna receivemore grace, but it's also
  • 00:05:50.496 --> 00:05:56.269
  • talking here in this definitionthat not only am I humble in
  • 00:05:56.302 --> 00:06:00.273
  • spirit but, you know, I don'twalk around with a prideful
  • 00:06:00.306 --> 00:06:04.177
  • attitude that says I wantto do what I want to do.
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:07.046
  • I want to execute my plan,because again it's very
  • 00:06:07.079 --> 00:06:10.650
  • difficult for God to feel reallycool about giving you directions
  • 00:06:10.683 --> 00:06:14.287
  • for your life when he alreadyknows you're not going to do it.
  • 00:06:14.320 --> 00:06:17.156
  • And then something about turningover your will to him
  • 00:06:17.190 --> 00:06:21.828
  • so that you canreceive from him.
  • 00:06:21.861 --> 00:06:24.464
  • And so, will you be a meekperson, humble in spirit,
  • 00:06:24.497 --> 00:06:29.836
  • and lowly in mind.
  • 00:06:29.869 --> 00:06:32.772
  • And then number three,this is the one that
  • 00:06:32.805 --> 00:06:34.974
  • really ministers to mewhen I see the example
  • 00:06:35.007 --> 00:06:37.443
  • of Moses and when I see whatI know we have to do.
  • 00:06:37.477 --> 00:06:40.847
  • We got to be teachable.
  • 00:06:40.880 --> 00:06:43.649
  • If meekness is going to be yourobjective, am I teachable?
  • 00:06:43.683 --> 00:06:48.654
  • Am I teachable?That's so powerful.
  • 00:06:48.688 --> 00:06:52.158
  • It's the most powerful positionyou can be in as a Christian.
  • 00:06:52.191 --> 00:06:55.528
  • Be in the position of a student,be in the position of being
  • 00:06:55.561 --> 00:06:59.298
  • teachable, and you'vegot to ask yourself--
  • 00:06:59.332 --> 00:07:02.168
  • I told you when you go overScripture and look at how
  • 00:07:02.201 --> 00:07:04.504
  • it applies to you.
  • 00:07:04.537 --> 00:07:05.938
  • Am I teachable?
  • 00:07:05.972 --> 00:07:08.774
  • You know, meekness is displayedwhen a person does not take
  • 00:07:08.808 --> 00:07:11.944
  • offense, when he suffersfor being in the right,
  • 00:07:11.978 --> 00:07:16.682
  • and when you suffer for beingright, you're not going
  • 00:07:16.716 --> 00:07:19.919
  • to take offense at that.
  • 00:07:19.952 --> 00:07:22.688
  • I--oh, there have been manyopportunities I wanted to really
  • 00:07:22.722 --> 00:07:27.326
  • just go after people who saythings that are just not even
  • 00:07:27.360 --> 00:07:31.731
  • true where media stuff isconcerned, but meekness always
  • 00:07:31.764 --> 00:07:36.769
  • takes me a whole lot fartherdown the road than me getting up
  • 00:07:36.802 --> 00:07:41.240
  • and having a debate withsomebody on whether or not
  • 00:07:41.274 --> 00:07:44.377
  • I think they should'vedid that to me.
  • 00:07:44.410 --> 00:07:47.179
  • My greatest success in a lotof times is just shutting up,
  • 00:07:47.213 --> 00:07:50.049
  • and it just goes and doeswhat it needs to do,
  • 00:07:50.082 --> 00:07:52.251
  • and in the midst of that,it's painful.
  • 00:07:52.285 --> 00:07:53.953
  • It's hurtful.
  • 00:07:53.986 --> 00:07:55.721
  • You turn on TV, andthe late-night show
  • 00:07:55.755 --> 00:07:57.390
  • was making jokes of yaand all that kind of stuff.
  • 00:07:57.423 --> 00:07:59.458
  • You just--I'm not goingto take offense.
  • 00:07:59.492 --> 00:08:02.128
  • I'm going to be meek,and you know what happens?
  • 00:08:02.161 --> 00:08:04.063
  • The Spirit of God comes in,and he begins to direct
  • 00:08:04.096 --> 00:08:06.198
  • your life towards vindication.
  • 00:08:06.232 --> 00:08:09.869
  • How many of you knowGod is your vindicator?
  • 00:08:09.902 --> 00:08:14.974
  • But what happens is, when youdecide to vindicate yourself,
  • 00:08:15.007 --> 00:08:17.810
  • basically you said,"God, I don't need you.
  • 00:08:17.843 --> 00:08:19.745
  • I'ma handle this on my own,"and I would much rather for God
  • 00:08:19.779 --> 00:08:22.315
  • to give me directionsand supply what I need
  • 00:08:22.348 --> 00:08:25.318
  • so that I can walk towardsthat path of vindication.
  • 00:08:25.351 --> 00:08:27.820
  • Now, some of you may have notexperienced stuff like that
  • 00:08:27.853 --> 00:08:29.689
  • before, but we livingright here, right now.
  • 00:08:29.722 --> 00:08:33.125
  • All hell is available foranybody who want to live there.
  • 00:08:33.159 --> 00:08:37.897
  • Now you don't have todie and wait to go there.
  • 00:08:37.930 --> 00:08:39.999
  • You can have a little--you canhave some little hell right now.
  • 00:08:40.032 --> 00:08:44.236
  • But you know what?
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:45.838
  • You can have days ofheaven on the earth too.
  • 00:08:45.871 --> 00:08:48.574
  • You've gotta choose that.
  • 00:08:48.608 --> 00:08:50.142
  • So a truly meek person possessesthe self-control not to react
  • 00:08:50.176 --> 00:08:55.748
  • negatively, even when he isbeing falsely accused, when he
  • 00:08:55.781 --> 00:09:00.152
  • is being, you know, slandered,when he is being afflicted,
  • 00:09:00.186 --> 00:09:07.259
  • when he is being persecuted, andthat's easier said than done.
  • 00:09:07.293 --> 00:09:13.065
  • But you really find outyour status of maturity
  • 00:09:13.099 --> 00:09:16.769
  • when under attack.
  • 00:09:16.802 --> 00:09:18.771
  • Sure, you can respond, and well,and surely you can do all these
  • 00:09:18.804 --> 00:09:25.144
  • other things, but the strengthto exercise self-control while
  • 00:09:25.177 --> 00:09:28.014
  • suffering injustice comesfrom cultivating the fruit of
  • 00:09:28.047 --> 00:09:31.751
  • meekness that I can exerciseself-control even
  • 00:09:31.784 --> 00:09:35.488
  • while I suffer injustice.
  • 00:09:35.521 --> 00:09:38.157
  • That comes fromthe fruit of meekness.
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:41.093
  • So examine meeknessin your life.
  • 00:09:41.127 --> 00:09:43.562
  • Are you the person that alwaysgot to give somebody
  • 00:09:43.596 --> 00:09:45.931
  • a piece of your mind?
  • 00:09:45.965 --> 00:09:47.333
  • You better watch out.
  • 00:09:47.366 --> 00:09:48.668
  • You know, them piecesgoing away.
  • 00:09:48.701 --> 00:09:50.169
  • You need to make sure youdon't be giving pieces away.
  • 00:09:50.202 --> 00:09:52.038
  • You need to preserveall your pieces, amen?
  • 00:09:52.071 --> 00:09:54.940
  • "I'm gon' give youa piece of my mind."
  • 00:09:54.974 --> 00:09:57.009
  • Learn meekness.Learn meekness.
  • 00:09:57.043 --> 00:09:59.945
  • One of the things I prayed aboutbefore the beginning of this
  • 00:09:59.979 --> 00:10:02.114
  • year is Lord, help me tobe a calm, cool, dude.
  • 00:10:02.148 --> 00:10:08.287
  • I want to be a manthat walks in ease.
  • 00:10:08.320 --> 00:10:13.125
  • That things will happen doesn'tmean I always have to just, you
  • 00:10:13.159 --> 00:10:17.063
  • know, comment on it or getstressed out over something,
  • 00:10:17.096 --> 00:10:22.001
  • something that most likely canbe repaired, something that can
  • 00:10:22.034 --> 00:10:25.204
  • be fixed, somethingthat can be resolved.
  • 00:10:25.237 --> 00:10:27.406
  • It's just not that big a deal toget yourself, you know,
  • 00:10:27.440 --> 00:10:31.143
  • tied up into thisstressful situation.
  • 00:10:31.177 --> 00:10:33.746
  • Why?
  • 00:10:33.779 --> 00:10:35.314
  • All you're doing is creatingclutter that's causing static,
  • 00:10:35.347 --> 00:10:40.486
  • and you can't getthe transmission.
  • 00:10:40.519 --> 00:10:42.888
  • God's speaking, and he's sendingit to you, but it's the activity
  • 00:10:42.922 --> 00:10:46.325
  • down here that's causingus to miss the direction.
  • 00:10:46.358 --> 00:10:49.695
  • We're on to 285, andhe says take the exit.
  • 00:10:49.729 --> 00:10:51.731
  • You didn't hear him becauseyou're occupied with being
  • 00:10:51.764 --> 00:10:54.900
  • offended, and you're occupiedwith what people are saying
  • 00:10:54.934 --> 00:10:57.970
  • about you, and you're occupiedabout I feel like I'm going
  • 00:10:58.003 --> 00:11:01.107
  • through injustice, andyou--all of the clutter.
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:05.444
  • You're worried about "Whatfolk gon' think about me
  • 00:11:05.478 --> 00:11:07.913
  • if I don't respond?"
  • 00:11:07.947 --> 00:11:11.317
  • And I've gone through all that.
  • 00:11:11.350 --> 00:11:12.918
  • I've been called--almost closeto being called the N-word
  • 00:11:12.952 --> 00:11:16.355
  • and have to get up and stillmove with excellence
  • 00:11:16.388 --> 00:11:21.794
  • when every part of mewanted to respond.
  • 00:11:21.827 --> 00:11:26.198
  • I mean, publicly in front ofthousands of people, but I had
  • 00:11:26.232 --> 00:11:31.003
  • to make the right choice.
  • 00:11:31.036 --> 00:11:33.806
  • That's meekness.Why?
  • 00:11:33.839 --> 00:11:35.708
  • Because how God was going todirect me was going to be more
  • 00:11:35.741 --> 00:11:38.010
  • important than meplanning a get-back.
  • 00:11:38.043 --> 00:11:44.116
  • I have something muchgreater, and that's him, amen?
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:50.523
  • So I want you tobegin to seek meekness.
  • 00:11:50.556 --> 00:11:53.559
  • I want you to begin to positionyourself in meekness so that you
  • 00:11:53.592 --> 00:11:58.197
  • can begin to receive somethingso much greater than losing your
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:12:02.468
  • control, but a man ofself-control, a man that doesn't
  • 00:12:02.501 --> 00:12:07.072
  • have a need forsomebody to validate him.
  • 00:12:07.106 --> 00:12:11.510
  • It's just, you know, people gon'think what they want to think.
  • 00:12:11.544 --> 00:12:13.445
  • You do need tounderstand that, right?
  • 00:12:13.479 --> 00:12:15.114
  • Sometimes you think you'redoing the best by trying
  • 00:12:15.147 --> 00:12:17.716
  • to explain yourself.
  • 00:12:17.750 --> 00:12:19.285
  • Sometimes that can get youdeeper and deeper in the hole.
  • 00:12:19.318 --> 00:12:21.587
  • Certain things, you justneed to shut up
  • 00:12:21.620 --> 00:12:24.924
  • and let the Lordfight your battle.
  • 00:12:24.957 --> 00:12:27.560
  • I said the lahd, L-A, lahd.
  • 00:12:27.593 --> 00:12:32.531
  • You know, sometimes God'lltell ya to speak on something.
  • 00:12:32.565 --> 00:12:34.900
  • He has me--sometimes God'll tellyou to talk about something
  • 00:12:34.934 --> 00:12:37.703
  • and do it a specific way, butyou can't make it all about you.
  • 00:12:37.736 --> 00:12:41.740
  • Remember, when you're in thecircle--and you gotta be careful
  • 00:12:41.774 --> 00:12:46.612
  • about being in thecenter of the circle.
  • 00:12:46.645 --> 00:12:49.481
  • That's where a lot of bitternesscan derive from, just being in
  • 00:12:49.515 --> 00:12:52.585
  • the center of the circle, alwaysconcerned about "What about me?
  • 00:12:52.618 --> 00:12:55.221
  • But what about me?"
  • 00:12:55.254 --> 00:12:56.889
  • and "Oh, what they said aboutme, what they did to me,"
  • 00:12:56.922 --> 00:12:58.490
  • "Oh, how they treated me,"
  • 00:12:58.524 --> 00:13:00.059
  • "Oh, they didn'teven speak to me,"
  • 00:13:00.092 --> 00:13:01.427
  • "Oh, I felt that--"
  • 00:13:01.460 --> 00:13:03.028
  • Would you pleaseget yourself out?
  • 00:13:03.062 --> 00:13:04.496
  • You are not that important.
  • 00:13:04.530 --> 00:13:07.900
  • Number three,let's move on.
  • 00:13:07.933 --> 00:13:10.936
  • Number three, faith.
  • 00:13:10.970 --> 00:13:13.939
  • What do I mean?
  • 00:13:13.973 --> 00:13:15.441
  • I think adjusting theantennae towards faith.
  • 00:13:15.474 --> 00:13:21.180
  • You talking aboutreceiving from God.
  • 00:13:21.213 --> 00:13:25.251
  • It's necessary to be positionedin faith in order
  • 00:13:25.284 --> 00:13:29.421
  • to be directed by God.
  • 00:13:29.455 --> 00:13:33.025
  • Am I in a faith posture where Ibelieve I've received all that
  • 00:13:33.058 --> 00:13:41.066
  • Jesus has made available?
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:42.568
  • I believe I receive divinedirections before I actually
  • 00:13:42.601 --> 00:13:46.138
  • get those directions.
  • 00:13:46.171 --> 00:13:48.073
  • I believe that God not onlywill speak to me, but I believe
  • 00:13:48.107 --> 00:13:54.179
  • to the point where I'm walkingin a level of confidence that I
  • 00:13:54.213 --> 00:13:59.118
  • may not know what to doright now, but I'm going
  • 00:13:59.151 --> 00:14:01.086
  • to know what to do.
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:02.521
  • You know, that's what wisdom is.
  • 00:14:02.554 --> 00:14:03.856
  • Wisdom is knowing what to dowhen you don't know what to do.
  • 00:14:03.889 --> 00:14:06.292
  • And I have to trust that evenwhen I don't know what to do,
  • 00:14:06.325 --> 00:14:09.028
  • that I'm confident that myposition of faith puts me
  • 00:14:09.061 --> 00:14:12.865
  • in a place where Ican receive that.
  • 00:14:12.898 --> 00:14:15.067
  • Now, look at 2 Corinthianschapter 5:7.
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:17.536
  • This is a familiar Scripture.
  • 00:14:17.569 --> 00:14:20.072
  • I want us to get ahold toit because I believe divine
  • 00:14:20.105 --> 00:14:23.042
  • direction is connected withthis, and this is all I'm doing.
  • 00:14:23.075 --> 00:14:26.345
  • I'm trying to train a group ofamazing people how to get ahead
  • 00:14:26.378 --> 00:14:33.385
  • in life through divinedirection, and verse 7
  • 00:14:37.389 --> 00:14:41.193
  • says for we walk how?
  • 00:14:41.226 --> 00:14:43.696
  • By faith, and not by what?
  • 00:14:43.729 --> 00:14:46.432
  • So divine direction is not forthose that walk by sight or by
  • 00:14:46.465 --> 00:14:52.705
  • the sensory mechanisms.
  • 00:14:52.738 --> 00:14:54.840
  • When you--we talk about walk byfaith and not by sight,
  • 00:14:54.873 --> 00:14:58.811
  • we're talking about walking byfaith in what Christ has done
  • 00:14:58.844 --> 00:15:03.515
  • and not by what our sensesperceive, not by I'm walking
  • 00:15:03.549 --> 00:15:08.187
  • by what I see with my eyesand what I hear with my ears
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:11.357
  • and what I can touch.
  • 00:15:11.390 --> 00:15:13.025
  • I'm walking by what I believethe Word has said,
  • 00:15:13.058 --> 00:15:16.762
  • what has beendeclared by the Word
  • 00:15:16.795 --> 00:15:18.497
  • and what Jesus has accomplished.
  • 00:15:18.530 --> 00:15:20.599
  • I will not--I'm not movedby what I see.
  • 00:15:20.632 --> 00:15:24.636
  • I'm not moved by mysensory mechanism, so my sensory
  • 00:15:24.670 --> 00:15:28.340
  • mechanisms are not going to moveme away from what I believe that
  • 00:15:28.374 --> 00:15:32.711
  • Jesus has already done andJesus has made available to me.
  • 00:15:32.745 --> 00:15:36.615
  • So I believe that there's goingto be somewhat of some static
  • 00:15:36.648 --> 00:15:40.452
  • involved in people who tryto get divine directions
  • 00:15:40.486 --> 00:15:45.024
  • by walking by their sight.
  • 00:15:45.057 --> 00:15:47.526
  • I think we've gotta walk ina place where we trust God
  • 00:15:47.559 --> 00:15:50.429
  • to lead us the right way.
  • 00:15:50.462 --> 00:15:52.598
  • I believe we gotta walk in aplace where I just trust God to
  • 00:15:52.631 --> 00:15:54.967
  • show me what I need to do andhow I need to do this, and what
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:58.537
  • happens is that spirit of easecomes on you because of trust.
  • 00:15:58.570 --> 00:16:01.407
  • "I trust God," then the easeshows up, versus,
  • 00:16:01.440 --> 00:16:04.143
  • "I don't trust God,and I don't know
  • 00:16:04.176 --> 00:16:06.011
  • if he gon' tell mewhat to do."
  • 00:16:06.045 --> 00:16:07.579
  • Panic shows up orgroundless fear.
  • 00:16:07.613 --> 00:16:09.848
  • You start fearing things that'snot even happened because you
  • 00:16:09.882 --> 00:16:12.317
  • don't even have trust that Godwill do what he said he will do.
  • 00:16:12.351 --> 00:16:16.055
  • He will lead you in theway that you should go.
  • 00:16:16.088 --> 00:16:19.324
  • He will never, neverforsake you, praise God.
  • 00:16:19.358 --> 00:16:22.728
  • No matter what crazy you do, hewill never, ever forsake you.
  • 00:16:22.761 --> 00:16:27.366
  • And then if you look at Hebrewschapter 11:6, the reward
  • 00:16:27.399 --> 00:16:31.637
  • of those who diligently seekGod is divine direction.
  • 00:16:31.670 --> 00:16:36.875
  • Hebrews chapter 11:6 says,"But without faith it's
  • 00:16:36.909 --> 00:16:39.244
  • impossible to please him, for hethat cometh to God must believe
  • 00:16:39.278 --> 00:16:42.681
  • that he is, and that he'sa rewarder of them
  • 00:16:42.714 --> 00:16:45.784
  • that diligently seek him."
  • 00:16:45.818 --> 00:16:47.820
  • I believe the reward--I believeit's a reward every time
  • 00:16:47.853 --> 00:16:51.924
  • I get divine direction.
  • 00:16:51.957 --> 00:16:53.592
  • There's nothing likeknowing what to do.
  • 00:16:53.625 --> 00:16:57.029
  • I have been in situations where,you know, I'm sitting there as
  • 00:16:57.062 --> 00:17:00.766
  • the senior pastor, and I'm beingasked, "Well, what do we do?"
  • 00:17:00.799 --> 00:17:04.703
  • in the middle of arough situation.
  • 00:17:04.736 --> 00:17:06.872
  • And I tell ya, sometimes it'sthe fact that I can just bow
  • 00:17:06.905 --> 00:17:10.776
  • my head for two secondsand come up with the answer
  • 00:17:10.809 --> 00:17:13.412
  • flowing out my mouth.
  • 00:17:13.445 --> 00:17:15.147
  • It wasn't always like that, butI've come to the place
  • 00:17:15.180 --> 00:17:17.916
  • of just trusting God.
  • 00:17:17.950 --> 00:17:19.618
  • "Yeah, this looks terrible,yeah, this looks bad, yeah,
  • 00:17:19.651 --> 00:17:22.287
  • I have no idea in the naturalhow we're going to get
  • 00:17:22.321 --> 00:17:24.623
  • out of it, but I will, I will.
  • 00:17:24.656 --> 00:17:29.561
  • I don't know now, but I will."
  • 00:17:29.595 --> 00:17:32.131
  • I don't know if it's gon' bea few seconds, a minute,
  • 00:17:32.164 --> 00:17:34.399
  • a hour or a coupleof days or a week,
  • 00:17:34.433 --> 00:17:36.435
  • but I will--I will not let goof my faith and my belief
  • 00:17:36.468 --> 00:17:41.607
  • that I have a walking,working relationship
  • 00:17:41.640 --> 00:17:44.143
  • with God, and throughdivine directions,
  • 00:17:44.176 --> 00:17:47.479
  • he'll begin to show mewhat to do.
  • 00:17:47.513 --> 00:17:49.548
  • And I just think that's ablessing for God to show up
  • 00:17:49.581 --> 00:17:52.851
  • and give you directions, for Godto show up and speak to you
  • 00:17:52.885 --> 00:17:55.921
  • at the red light, and youain't even talking to him,
  • 00:17:55.954 --> 00:17:58.090
  • and he decide to break in therewith a conversation.
  • 00:17:58.123 --> 00:18:02.761
  • Sitting at a red light, he say,"You know Ralph, don't ya?"
  • 00:18:02.794 --> 00:18:05.297
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:18:05.330 --> 00:18:06.899
  • You needn't--don't marry Ralph."
  • 00:18:06.932 --> 00:18:10.636
  • "But Lord, I've already sent outthe invitations," and he says,
  • 00:18:10.669 --> 00:18:13.872
  • "Well, just tell people,'Be blessed, be blessed.'"
  • 00:18:13.906 --> 00:18:18.877
  • If you pay attention to him,he'll teach you to profit.
  • 00:18:18.911 --> 00:18:24.783
  • I don't--you know what itis with some Christians?
  • 00:18:24.816 --> 00:18:26.585
  • They're like, "Yeah, I hearwhat you're saying,
  • 00:18:26.618 --> 00:18:28.453
  • but I don't want to do that."
  • 00:18:28.487 --> 00:18:31.123
  • Lazy.
  • 00:18:31.156 --> 00:18:32.891
  • You know, the Bible callssomebody slothfulness, right?
  • 00:18:32.925 --> 00:18:36.762
  • I can't see the picture on theTV, and all you gotta do is get
  • 00:18:36.795 --> 00:18:40.365
  • up there and movethat little knob.
  • 00:18:40.399 --> 00:18:42.501
  • You know, ours usedto always work on 3.
  • 00:18:42.534 --> 00:18:49.374
  • Some of y'all knowwhat I'm talking about.
  • 00:18:49.408 --> 00:18:51.276
  • Just--all you got to do is go upthere and move it on 3, but you
  • 00:18:51.310 --> 00:18:53.745
  • want to sit there 'causeyou're too lazy to get up
  • 00:18:53.779 --> 00:18:56.148
  • and move it on 3.
  • 00:18:56.181 --> 00:18:58.250
  • And nobody have noremote controls there.
  • 00:18:58.283 --> 00:19:00.052
  • You turn the knob sometimes,and the knob will fall off.
  • 00:19:00.085 --> 00:19:03.855
  • You get the pliers or something.
  • 00:19:03.889 --> 00:19:05.958
  • Come on, somebody, talk to me.
  • 00:19:05.991 --> 00:19:09.695
  • You trying to adjust theantenna, and it breaks.
  • 00:19:09.728 --> 00:19:12.898
  • You ain't gon'get no new antenna.
  • 00:19:12.931 --> 00:19:14.399
  • You'll get a hanger and bendthat thing over and stick it
  • 00:19:14.433 --> 00:19:16.168
  • in front of antennaand--come on, somebody.
  • 00:19:16.201 --> 00:19:20.639
  • But that require yourepositioning yourself to take
  • 00:19:20.672 --> 00:19:25.844
  • advantage of what'sin front of you,
  • 00:19:25.877 --> 00:19:31.250
  • what you can takefull advantage of.
  • 00:19:31.283 --> 00:19:33.652
  • And the same thing is here.
  • 00:19:33.685 --> 00:19:35.754
  • I don't know.
  • 00:19:35.787 --> 00:19:37.322
  • I think sometimes I'm battlingthis, our understanding of
  • 00:19:37.356 --> 00:19:39.157
  • grace, and not wanting--I wantto make sure you don't get lazy
  • 00:19:39.191 --> 00:19:43.228
  • and you just, you know,"Well, I'm under grace this,
  • 00:19:43.262 --> 00:19:45.697
  • well, I'm under grace that."
  • 00:19:45.731 --> 00:19:47.466
  • Grace is all the thingsthat he's made available
  • 00:19:47.499 --> 00:19:49.067
  • to you, okay?
  • 00:19:49.101 --> 00:19:50.702
  • But by faith,you take hold of it.
  • 00:19:50.736 --> 00:19:52.971
  • By faith, you take hold of it.
  • 00:19:53.005 --> 00:19:54.973
  • Yeah, I got it by grace.
  • 00:19:55.007 --> 00:19:56.508
  • I got everything by grace,but that doesn't mean
  • 00:19:56.541 --> 00:19:58.243
  • I lay back on my bed.
  • 00:19:58.277 --> 00:20:00.145
  • You know, you broke, busted,disgusted, ain't got no job.
  • 00:20:00.178 --> 00:20:02.614
  • They'd already tell you theygon' tear your lights out and
  • 00:20:02.648 --> 00:20:04.549
  • put you out, and I call 'em,"Man, what you doing?"
  • 00:20:04.583 --> 00:20:06.752
  • "I'm just layinghere in grace."
  • 00:20:06.785 --> 00:20:08.487
  • "You gon' be laying outsidein grace after a while."
  • 00:20:08.520 --> 00:20:11.990
  • That ain't whathe talking about.
  • 00:20:12.024 --> 00:20:17.029
  • You know what I'mtalking' about.
  • 00:20:17.062 --> 00:20:18.530
  • You have to deal with some ofthose Christians who take things
  • 00:20:18.563 --> 00:20:20.165
  • just a little bitover there to the left.
  • 00:20:20.198 --> 00:20:22.668
  • We just need to start adjustinga little bit here, you know?
  • 00:20:22.701 --> 00:20:26.471
  • All right, so let'sgo to the next area.
  • 00:20:26.505 --> 00:20:28.440
  • I think it's number four.
  • 00:20:28.473 --> 00:20:30.208
  • To me, this is very important.
  • 00:20:30.242 --> 00:20:32.544
  • I believe, as we adjust ourantennas to receive
  • 00:20:32.577 --> 00:20:35.914
  • from the Lord, I thinkthis is just--
  • 00:20:35.947 --> 00:20:38.317
  • this is paramount right here.
  • 00:20:38.350 --> 00:20:40.919
  • We gotta learn how tofellowship with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:40.952 --> 00:20:43.488
  • We gotta learn how tofellowship with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:45.223 --> 00:20:48.794
  • The Holy Spirit is real.
  • 00:20:48.827 --> 00:20:52.264
  • He lives on the inside of youthe day you got born again.
  • 00:20:52.297 --> 00:20:57.269
  • I want to experience fellowshiphim, koinonia with him,
  • 00:20:57.302 --> 00:21:02.074
  • where we're sharingparts of things.
  • 00:21:02.107 --> 00:21:06.278
  • I'm receiving from him.
  • 00:21:06.311 --> 00:21:08.513
  • He's receivingfellowship from me.
  • 00:21:08.547 --> 00:21:11.550
  • There's a participation thatgoes on in that relationship.
  • 00:21:11.583 --> 00:21:16.154
  • It is not the Holy Spirit that'sjerking and doing cartwheels.
  • 00:21:16.188 --> 00:21:20.592
  • He's here to leadand guide us to the path
  • 00:21:20.625 --> 00:21:24.463
  • and the will of Godfor our life.
  • 00:21:24.496 --> 00:21:26.631
  • He wants to speak to us.
  • 00:21:26.665 --> 00:21:28.800
  • He wants to guide us, help us toavoid certain traps in our life.
  • 00:21:28.834 --> 00:21:33.739
  • Look at 1 John chapter 2:20.
  • 00:21:33.772 --> 00:21:36.441
  • Uses this word unction,which is literally anointing.
  • 00:21:36.475 --> 00:21:40.579
  • And in 1 John 2:20, he saysthat there is an unction,
  • 00:21:40.612 --> 00:21:45.650
  • "But you have an unction,
  • 00:21:45.684 --> 00:21:47.386
  • you have an anointingfrom the Holy One."
  • 00:21:47.419 --> 00:21:49.621
  • Now, I want you to turn tosomebody and say to them,
  • 00:21:49.654 --> 00:21:52.124
  • "You have an anointingfrom the Holy Ghost."
  • 00:21:52.157 --> 00:21:56.762
  • An anointing, an unction--I like to say it like this:
  • 00:21:57.763 --> 00:22:02.100
  • You have an unction to function.
  • 00:22:02.134 --> 00:22:04.603
  • So whatever your functionis, there's an unction for it.
  • 00:22:04.636 --> 00:22:08.039
  • Whatever your function is,there's an anointing for it.
  • 00:22:08.073 --> 00:22:11.410
  • In other words, whatever Godcalled you to do or God has
  • 00:22:11.443 --> 00:22:14.679
  • designed and wired you to do,you have an anointing to do it.
  • 00:22:14.713 --> 00:22:18.350
  • You have an equipping to do it.
  • 00:22:18.383 --> 00:22:20.218
  • You have an unction to function.
  • 00:22:20.252 --> 00:22:22.921
  • You have an unctionfrom the Holy One,
  • 00:22:22.954 --> 00:22:25.123
  • and this is so awesome.
  • 00:22:25.157 --> 00:22:26.992
  • And my relationship and myunction and to function with
  • 00:22:27.025 --> 00:22:30.562
  • him, my relationship andfellowship moves to the place
  • 00:22:30.595 --> 00:22:33.999
  • where I am now in fellowshipwith one who knows all things.
  • 00:22:34.032 --> 00:22:37.169
  • I don't know all things,but I know somebody
  • 00:22:37.202 --> 00:22:39.337
  • who does know all things.
  • 00:22:39.371 --> 00:22:41.873
  • You know, the Bible talksabout how he helps us with our
  • 00:22:41.907 --> 00:22:45.076
  • infirmities, for we know notwhat we should pray for as we
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:48.814
  • ought, but the Holy Spiritmakes intercession for us.
  • 00:22:48.847 --> 00:22:53.318
  • And I don't know how to prayabout things I don't know about
  • 00:22:53.351 --> 00:22:56.054
  • mentally, but the Holy Spiritwho knows everything begins
  • 00:22:56.087 --> 00:22:59.090
  • to provide intercession for methrough speaking in tongues.
  • 00:22:59.124 --> 00:23:03.595
  • And so you know, that's a realbad word in most churches,
  • 00:23:03.628 --> 00:23:07.499
  • speaking in tongues.
  • 00:23:07.532 --> 00:23:09.367
  • You need to learnthat's available for you.
  • 00:23:09.401 --> 00:23:11.236
  • I want to prepare you as aChristian to walk on a level
  • 00:23:11.269 --> 00:23:15.307
  • of maturity where you see thatthe Holy Spirit and directions
  • 00:23:15.340 --> 00:23:19.678
  • from him, it's a gamechanger in your life.
  • 00:23:19.711 --> 00:23:22.781
  • You should not bedwelling in average.
  • 00:23:22.814 --> 00:23:29.354
  • You have too much that hasbeen made available to you
  • 00:23:29.387 --> 00:23:32.190
  • to remain in average.
  • 00:23:32.224 --> 00:23:35.760
  • You should be walkingin supernatural levels,
  • 00:23:35.794 --> 00:23:39.931
  • or the word itself,supernatural,
  • 00:23:39.965 --> 00:23:41.533
  • means above the natural,praise God.
  • 00:23:41.566 --> 00:23:44.302
  • And while you are in a physicalbody in this natural realm,
  • 00:23:44.336 --> 00:23:48.440
  • you have the ability to operateabove the natural,
  • 00:23:48.473 --> 00:23:52.277
  • and while the restof the world is--
  • 00:23:52.310 --> 00:23:54.746
  • they're committed tothe natural, you rise above it,
  • 00:23:54.779 --> 00:23:57.716
  • and they should then becoming to you and asking you,
  • 00:23:57.749 --> 00:24:00.218
  • "How is it that youwere able to do this?"
  • 00:24:00.252 --> 00:24:03.421
  • And you tell 'em aboutyour unseen partner.
  • 00:24:03.455 --> 00:24:07.559
  • You tell 'em aboutyour unseen partner.
  • 00:24:07.592 --> 00:24:10.729

  • satisfied with the T-shirt,but I don't know about

  • 00:26:32.170 --> 00:26:34.372
