  • Gregory Dickow: You can rule anything if you can rule
  • 00:00:01.050 --> 00:00:02.260
  • yourself.
  • 00:00:02.270 --> 00:00:04.060
  • If you can rule yourself, you'll handle your money better.
  • 00:00:04.070 --> 00:00:06.090
  • If you rule yourself, you'll handle your health better.
  • 00:00:06.100 --> 00:00:08.060
  • If you can rule--rule yourself, you'll handle your
  • 00:00:08.070 --> 00:00:10.190
  • relationships better.
  • 00:00:10.200 --> 00:00:12.090
  • If you rule yourself, you can conquer anything.
  • 00:00:12.100 --> 00:00:13.250
  • You can live victoriously in any area of life.
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:16.240
  • You will step into your destiny, into a greater realm
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:19.190
  • and a greater dimension of your purpose, by conquering self.
  • 00:00:19.200 --> 00:00:22.100
  • We've gotta stop ignoring this.
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:24.040
  • We gotta stop ignore-- Christians gotta stop trying
  • 00:00:24.050 --> 00:00:26.000
  • to get the victory in some other area when God's simply saying,
  • 00:00:26.010 --> 00:00:29.240
  • "Conquer yourself."
  • 00:00:29.250 --> 00:00:31.050
  • 00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:37.040
  • 00:00:37.050 --> 00:00:43.040
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:49.040
  • 00:00:49.050 --> 00:00:51.160
  • Gregory Dickow: So, there are some things that we have
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:54.000
  • to conquer to move forward in our destiny.
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:57.010
  • One of them is we must conquer our past.
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:00:59.160
  • We must realize that our past does not control us.
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:02.070
  • Our past cannot defeat us.
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:03.260
  • Our past does not have-- determine our future.
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:06.230
  • We have to come to grips with the fact that Jesus dealt
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:09.120
  • with our past by dying for us and saying, "Your past is over.
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:13.240
  • The old things are passed away.
  • 00:01:13.250 --> 00:01:15.090
  • All things have become new."
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:16.200
  • You say, "Well, if all things have become new, then why do I
  • 00:01:16.210 --> 00:01:18.250
  • keep having the same habits?
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:20.060
  • Why do I keep thinking the same thoughts?
  • 00:01:20.070 --> 00:01:21.160
  • Why do I keep struggling with the same things?
  • 00:01:21.170 --> 00:01:23.140
  • Why do I keep reaching the same ceilings?"
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:27.090
  • And that's because we have to deal with our soul, which
  • 00:01:27.100 --> 00:01:30.070
  • we'll get to in a moment.
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:31.180
  • But you've got to realize that your past is conquered.
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:34.000
  • Your past has been defeated.
  • 00:01:34.010 --> 00:01:35.260
  • It's been removed.
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:37.070
  • You don't have to live in shame anymore.
  • 00:01:37.080 --> 00:01:38.290
  • You don't have to live in guilt anymore.
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:40.200
  • You don't have to look back at your past and go, "I wish
  • 00:01:40.210 --> 00:01:43.060
  • that wouldn't happen."
  • 00:01:43.070 --> 00:01:44.160
  • No, you invite God into your past.
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.090
  • Even though God can't change your past, he can change your
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:49.000
  • perspective of it.
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:50.100
  • You can't change your past, you can change how you look at it.
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:53.100
  • You can change how you utilize your past.
  • 00:01:53.110 --> 00:01:55.090
  • You can change how you use your past.
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.040
  • You can change how you leverage your past.
  • 00:01:57.050 --> 00:01:59.080
  • You can say, "You know what?
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:00.210
  • I was abused as a child.
  • 00:02:00.220 --> 00:02:02.010
  • Now God's healing me, and Lord, I'm gonna let you use me and I'm
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:05.060
  • going to let you to use what happened to me to help bring
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:07.150
  • other children out of that, to help deliver other people,
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.060
  • to help notice it if it's happening, to help blow
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:13.000
  • the whistle if it's happening in somebody else's life,
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:15.040
  • or to help somebody heal from it because I've learned to
  • 00:02:15.050 --> 00:02:17.180
  • heal from it."
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:18.280
  • You see, you can use your past in a positive way.
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:21.050
  • Your past does not confine you, your past does not define you,
  • 00:02:21.060 --> 00:02:24.260
  • and your past does not have to conquer you.
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:27.020
  • You can conquer your past, in Jesus's name, amen.
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:30.000
  • The second thing we talked about was we need to conquer
  • 00:02:30.010 --> 00:02:33.010
  • our pain.
  • 00:02:33.020 --> 00:02:34.110
  • God created us to conquer our pain.
  • 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:35.220
  • In other words, there are a lot of things that hurt us in life.
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:37.280
  • There are a lot of things that cause sorrow and pain in life,
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:40.270
  • but we can conquer our pain when we allow God to heal it, when we
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:45.230
  • forgive others for inflicting it, when we're willing to pull
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:48.270
  • the knife out of our side that people have put--thrust inside
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:51.290
  • of us, and say, "You know what?
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.100
  • Yes, I've been betrayed.
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:54.200
  • Yes, I've been lied to.
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:56.010
  • Yes, I've been mistreated or mishandled.
  • 00:02:56.020 --> 00:02:58.290
  • But I am going to conquer my pain by trusting God to heal me.
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:03.200
  • I'm going to conquer my pain by forgiving those that
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:05.240
  • inflicted me.
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:07.040
  • And I'm gonna conquer my pain by realizing that the power
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:10.200
  • of God will--that my purpose and my destiny will power me
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:15.080
  • through my pain, that I can go through anything when I know
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:18.130
  • there's a purpose.
  • 00:03:18.140 --> 00:03:19.240
  • When I know there's a purpose."
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:21.130
  • So, the third thing that God has called us to conquer is
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:26.160
  • to conquer ourself.
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:28.080
  • To conquer ourself. To conquer ourself.
  • 00:03:28.090 --> 00:03:31.150
  • Now, when we talk about conquering self, 'cause
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:33.090
  • the Bible talks about this a lot, Jesus says,
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:35.200
  • "Deny your self."
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:37.200
  • The Bible says, "Crucify your self."
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:39.130
  • The Bible says, "Deny your self," multiple times
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:42.200
  • throughout Scripture.
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:44.030
  • He's not--now, I want to be careful not to focus
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:48.090
  • on selfishness, 'cause that's not what we mean by
  • 00:03:48.100 --> 00:03:52.110
  • conquering self.
  • 00:03:52.120 --> 00:03:54.010
  • We're not referring to selfishness.
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:55.120
  • There's nothing wrong with conquering selfishness.
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:56.220
  • It's way better to be generous than to be selfish.
  • 00:03:56.230 --> 00:03:59.000
  • Can anybody say amen?
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.260
  • But when we're talkin' about conquering self, we're
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:02.280
  • talking about there--If this can help you get--understand
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:08.030
  • this, that for every one of us there are two versions of us,
  • 00:04:08.040 --> 00:04:12.070
  • every human being.
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:13.180
  • There are two versions of every human being.
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:15.120
  • There is God's version of you and then there's what life has--
  • 00:04:15.130 --> 00:04:19.180
  • what life's version of you, what life has carved into your soul,
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:23.270
  • what people have carved into your soul, what your
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.260
  • parents carved into your DNA, what certain chemicals produced
  • 00:04:25.270 --> 00:04:30.080
  • in your life, what certain chromosomes produced in your
  • 00:04:30.090 --> 00:04:33.070
  • life, what certain education produced in your life.
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:36.220
  • So, there--what certain habits, or certain proclivities,
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:41.070
  • or belief systems that you grew up with.
  • 00:04:41.080 --> 00:04:44.050
  • The reason people are racist, sexist, some of these other
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:49.130
  • things is because that was programmed in their upbringing
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:53.230
  • by the things they subjected themselves to, or the things
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:56.290
  • their parents subjected them to, or the choices that they made
  • 00:04:57.000 --> 00:05:00.270
  • based on the stimuli of their environment.
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:03.190
  • I don't mean to get too all psychological
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:05.100
  • and psychoanalytical here, but if this makes sense, we have
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:10.090
  • to realize that our soul is a byproduct of our environment.
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:15.110
  • Our soul is a byproduct of what people have done to us.
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:18.190
  • Our soul is also a byproduct-- it's a mixed bag.
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:21.120
  • Our soul is a byproduct of our personality, the pure
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:25.240
  • personality in your life and the twisted personality
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:28.100
  • that's in your life, and it's a combination of all those
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:30.140
  • things mixed up together.
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:32.250
  • And that's what you--and that's the condition of your soul,
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:36.100
  • and that's why God doesn't give you a new one, 'cause your
  • 00:05:36.110 --> 00:05:39.050
  • personality is caught up in that mix.
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:42.130
  • God doesn't give you a new soul because your memories are
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:45.150
  • in that mix.
  • 00:05:45.160 --> 00:05:46.280
  • God doesn't give you a new soul because all the things you've
  • 00:05:46.290 --> 00:05:50.030
  • learned are in that mix.
  • 00:05:50.040 --> 00:05:52.130
  • And God doesn't want us to have to relearn everybody's name,
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:55.080
  • relearn our family, relearn how to brush our teeth, relearn how
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:59.020
  • to walk, relearn how to talk.
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.250
  • God doesn't want us to do that, so he leaves our soul in
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:04.180
  • its condition.
  • 00:06:04.190 --> 00:06:05.280
  • When we get born again, our spirit is born again, but our
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:08.040
  • soul is left in the same condition.
  • 00:06:08.050 --> 00:06:11.190
  • Only left to us to renew our minds so that God can transform
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:16.190
  • our soul, and operate in our soul, and do what we all quoted
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:20.100
  • when we were little kids in Psalm 23, restore our soul.
  • 00:06:20.110 --> 00:06:24.260
  • He restores my soul.
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.270
  • He restores my soul.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:29.120
  • How does he restore my soul?
  • 00:06:29.130 --> 00:06:31.120
  • Well, if you just look at verse 1 and 2 of Psalm 23, the most
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:35.160
  • famous passage of Scripture maybe besides John 3:16, "The
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:39.200
  • Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:41.120
  • He makes me lie down in green pastures and he leads me beside
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:46.100
  • still waters."
  • 00:06:46.110 --> 00:06:47.200
  • Now, there's nothing in the Bible that has more
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:50.120
  • references to green pastures and waters more than the Word
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:55.160
  • of God.
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:56.260
  • The Word of God in the Bible is symbolized as green pastures.
  • 00:06:56.270 --> 00:07:01.200
  • The grass withers and flower fades, but the Word of God
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:04.220
  • abides forever.
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.020
  • There's nothing in the Bible that is compared to grass
  • 00:07:06.030 --> 00:07:08.290
  • and water more than the Word of God.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:12.010
  • So, he leads me beside, he makes me lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:16.280
  • You know, a sheep is in a pasture.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:21.180
  • And so in church, when a church is teaching you God's Word, you
  • 00:07:21.190 --> 00:07:26.270
  • are lying down in green pastures.
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:30.110
  • You know what's happening right now?
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:32.060
  • In this very moment, God is restoring another area of
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:36.200
  • your soul.
  • 00:07:36.210 --> 00:07:38.120
  • You see, you don't see it all right now.
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:41.050
  • You might just see one thing goin' on in your life,
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:43.230
  • but that's just one piece of a puzzle.
  • 00:07:43.240 --> 00:07:46.160
  • But don't worry because God knows what he's doing, and if we
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:52.040
  • just keep looking at the picture of what God says we are,
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:55.230
  • and then go back and say, "Okay, this is a piece.
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:58.100
  • This is happening in my life right now."
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:00.090
  • It's a part of this puzzle.
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:02.030
  • It's okay.
  • 00:08:02.040 --> 00:08:03.140
  • It's comin' together.
  • 00:08:03.150 --> 00:08:04.240
  • It's come--God knows what he's doin.'
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.100
  • God put all the pieces in there.
  • 00:08:06.110 --> 00:08:07.270
  • And if there's a missing piece, it'll show up tomorrow.
  • 00:08:07.280 --> 00:08:10.140
  • It'll show up the next day.
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:12.000
  • It'll show up.
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:13.110
  • I'm going to trust God, just work with what I got right now,
  • 00:08:13.120 --> 00:08:15.040
  • right?
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.240
  • Okay, to conquer yourself--
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:24.010
  • to conquer yourself is not
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:27.200
  • to conquer eating habits and wrong desires.
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:34.130
  • To conquer yourself means to capture and take captive
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:40.000
  • the wrong view of yourself and instead adopt God's view
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:45.050
  • of you.
  • 00:08:45.060 --> 00:08:46.160
  • God's version of you versus life's version of you.
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:51.000
  • Life made you into--life made me into a scaredy-cat when I was
  • 00:08:51.010 --> 00:08:54.080
  • in eighth grade like I told you the story last week.
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:56.100
  • I'd hide behind the couch so I wouldn't have to go to debate
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:59.010
  • class in eighth grade.
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:00.270
  • Life made me afraid.
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:02.190
  • Life may be insecure.
  • 00:09:02.200 --> 00:09:04.220
  • But God's version of me was to preach the gospel.
  • 00:09:04.230 --> 00:09:07.230
  • God's version of me was to help others.
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:09.280
  • God's version of me was to conquer that fear so I could
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:12.230
  • conquer--help other people conquer what's happening
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:15.250
  • in their life.
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:17.060
  • And until I conquered that, I couldn't really help anybody
  • 00:09:17.070 --> 00:09:20.020
  • unless I was focused on at least conquering that version of me
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:24.190
  • that was not God's version of me.
  • 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:27.050
  • Boy, how can I put this?
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.190
  • I love to quote this Scripture.
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:30.160
  • I wasn't planning on it, but I'll take it--I'll take you
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:32.190
  • to it in Judges chapter 11, verse 1.
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:35.140
  • Look at what he says.
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:36.250
  • I'll show you the two versions of you.
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:39.010
  • "Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a valiant warrior.
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:44.140
  • He was a valiant warrior, but he was the son of a harlot."
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:49.070
  • And I remember reading this years ago and thinking, "Whoa,
  • 00:09:49.080 --> 00:09:51.290
  • that's powerful."
  • 00:09:52.000 --> 00:09:53.090
  • And God began to reveal to me, he said, "See, son, in this
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:55.190
  • verse are the two versions of Jephthah.
  • 00:09:55.200 --> 00:09:59.010
  • My version of Jephthah."
  • 00:09:59.020 --> 00:10:00.170
  • God's version of Jephthah is a valiant warrior.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:03.170
  • Now, let me explain something to ya.
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:05.040
  • He hasn't even been in a fight yet.
  • 00:10:05.050 --> 00:10:07.040
  • We don't see him getting in a fight until later in this
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:09.230
  • chapter and later in the book of Judges.
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:12.150
  • We don't see him in a fight prior to Judges chapter 11,
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:15.090
  • verse 1.
  • 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:16.190
  • God calls us something before we ever see ourselves as that.
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:20.210
  • God calls us something before we ever experience it.
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:24.030
  • Just like God calls you more than a conqueror, God called
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:28.010
  • Jephthah a mighty warrior when he hadn't even been in
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:31.090
  • a fight yet.
  • 00:10:31.100 --> 00:10:32.200
  • He's a valiant warrior.
  • 00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:34.000
  • That's God's version of him, but life's version of Jephthah
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:38.290
  • is what?
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:40.090
  • The son of a prostitute.
  • 00:10:40.100 --> 00:10:41.290
  • He's the son of a prostitute.
  • 00:10:42.000 --> 00:10:43.240
  • So, he has to choose in his life, just like we have
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:47.050
  • to choose in our lives, which version of ourselves are we
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:51.090
  • going to identify with, God's version of us or life's version
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:55.290
  • of us?
  • 00:10:56.000 --> 00:10:57.090
  • God says you're more than a conqueror, but life has
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:11:00.130
  • conquered you and made you a victim.
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:03.090
  • You've got a disability.
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:05.010
  • You've got a disease.
  • 00:11:05.020 --> 00:11:07.000
  • You've got--you've had racism shown towards you you've.
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:10.200
  • Had sexism shown towards you.
  • 00:11:10.210 --> 00:11:12.070
  • You've had--you've had people mistreat you.
  • 00:11:12.080 --> 00:11:15.120
  • Maybe you've been abused.
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:16.220
  • Maybe you've been--maybe something worse has happened.
  • 00:11:16.230 --> 00:11:19.090
  • Maybe you had a loved one go through something that you--
  • 00:11:19.100 --> 00:11:22.070
  • that you feel guilty over, or various thousand--myriad
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:27.170
  • of things that could have happened to you and has shaped
  • 00:11:27.180 --> 00:11:31.080
  • you into a limited version of you.
  • 00:11:31.090 --> 00:11:36.060
  • And you have to choose today, are you gonna be what God calls
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:39.170
  • you, a valiant warrior, or are you gonna be what life
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:42.160
  • calls you?
  • 00:11:42.170 --> 00:11:44.060
  • You're just the son of a harlot.
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:45.170
  • Oh, he's just the son of a prostitute.
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:46.270
  • Oh, he can't amount to anything. Look at who his mother is.
  • 00:11:46.280 --> 00:11:48.240
  • He can't amount to anything. Look at who his father is.
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:50.230
  • He can't amount to anything. His mother's a harlot.
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:52.230
  • He's never gonna be anything because look at where
  • 00:11:52.240 --> 00:11:54.070
  • he came from.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:55.200
  • He's never--she's never gonna be anything because look
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:57.040
  • at her color.
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.160
  • Look at her skin. Look at her size.
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:12:00.020
  • Look at her height. Look at her weight.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.150
  • Look at her nose. Look at her ears.
  • 00:12:01.160 --> 00:12:03.000
  • Look at her face. Look at--look at this.
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:04.240
  • Look at his job. Look at his experience.
  • 00:12:04.250 --> 00:12:06.100
  • He didn't go to college. Or look at what college.
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:08.130
  • He didn't--he went to college, but it wasn't that good and he
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:09.250
  • didn't do that well.
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:11.080
  • And look at his businesses, they've all failed.
  • 00:12:11.090 --> 00:12:12.270
  • Well, that's what they said about Albert Einstein.
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:14.160
  • He failed 7.000 times, and then on the 7.001st experiment he
  • 00:12:14.170 --> 00:12:18.150
  • discovered the power of electricity.
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.160
  • It was all--it had always existed, but he tapped
  • 00:12:20.170 --> 00:12:22.280
  • into the power of it and learned to harness it.
  • 00:12:22.290 --> 00:12:24.280
  • Let me tell ya something, Colonel Sanders, one
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:28.210
  • of the great generals in history,
  • 00:12:28.220 --> 00:12:37.190
  • do you know that he tried to sell his recipe
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:43.050
  • to a thousand different people
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:45.120
  • and a thousand different businesses turned him down?
  • 00:12:45.130 --> 00:12:48.000
  • Until somebody finally said yes and amen, and whoever said that
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:53.070
  • heard from God.
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:55.260
  • Because where would any of us be without KFC?
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:13:02.260
  • Amen, we all got that deep down, home cooking feeling.
  • 00:13:02.270 --> 00:13:12.210
  • Original recipe, thank you very much.
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:17.060
  • And the mac and cheese, man, coleslaw.
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:21.040
  • Anybody getting hungry like I am?
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:22.220
  • Man, I'll tell ya.
  • 00:13:22.230 --> 00:13:24.030
  • But what's my point?
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:25.130
  • My point is that he couldn't let what the world said he couldn't
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:31.040
  • do, what people said no to, he didn't let that determine who he
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:37.240
  • was going to be and what version of himself he was going
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:41.290
  • to identify with.
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:44.190
  • And I want to encourage you today, that's what I mean
  • 00:13:44.200 --> 00:13:48.250
  • by conquering self.
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:50.170
  • It's not conquering sinful habits.
  • 00:13:50.180 --> 00:13:54.250
  • That's something Jesus already defeated for you and you have
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:57.260
  • to identify with Christ, but it's conquering that wrong
  • 00:13:57.270 --> 00:14:02.010
  • version of you, that other version, that earthly version
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:06.020
  • versus the heavenly version of how God looks at you.
  • 00:14:06.030 --> 00:14:09.110
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:11.050
  • So, in conquering yourself, remember your soul is made
  • 00:14:11.060 --> 00:14:16.060
  • up of three parts.
  • 00:14:16.070 --> 00:14:17.190
  • Your soul--your life is made up of three parts: spirit, soul,
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:20.130
  • and body.
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:21.240
  • But your soul is also made up of three parts.
  • 00:14:21.250 --> 00:14:23.210
  • It's the mind to think, the heart to feel, our emotions,
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:28.170
  • the heart to feel, and the will to choose.
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:32.080
  • And so, when we talk about conquering self, I'm
  • 00:14:32.090 --> 00:14:35.180
  • talking about those three things.
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:37.200
  • Conquering self means conquering your thoughts, conquering your
  • 00:14:37.210 --> 00:14:42.140
  • emotions, and conquering your will or your decisions.
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:48.050
  • And the only way to conquer any of those three things is
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:52.150
  • God's way.
  • 00:14:52.160 --> 00:14:53.250
  • It's to--it's to renew your mind to God's way of thinking,
  • 00:14:53.260 --> 00:14:57.240
  • God's way of handling your emotions, and God's way
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:15:01.240
  • of making decisions.
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:03.180
  • And so, if you will walk out of here today knowing this,
  • 00:15:03.190 --> 00:15:06.150
  • that conquering self is the greatest path
  • 00:15:06.160 --> 00:15:09.180
  • and the quickest path to your destiny.
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:11.060
  • He who conquers himself cannot be conquered.
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:15.000
  • David or Solomon said in Proverbs chapter 16, verse
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:18.000
  • 32, he said--it says, "He who is slow to anger is better than
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:22.020
  • the mighty, and he who conquers himself, or he who rules
  • 00:15:22.030 --> 00:15:27.250
  • himself," he's talking about his soul here when he uses the word
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:31.020
  • spirit, "he who rules himself is better than he who captures
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:35.150
  • a city."
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:36.260
  • So if you were to capture a city, it would pale
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:38.280
  • in comparison to you conquering your soul or conquering self.
  • 00:15:38.290 --> 00:15:42.250
  • So, you can rule anything if you can rule yourself.
  • 00:15:42.260 --> 00:15:47.020
  • If you can rule yourself, you'll handle your money better.
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:49.140
  • If you can rule yourself, you'll handle your health better.
  • 00:15:49.150 --> 00:15:51.120
  • If you can rule--rule yourself, you'll handle your
  • 00:15:51.130 --> 00:15:54.050
  • relationships better.
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:55.150
  • If you rule yourself, you can conquer anything.
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:57.010
  • You can live victoriously in any area of life.
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:16:00.020
  • You will step into your destiny, into a greater realm
  • 00:16:00.030 --> 00:16:02.280
  • and a greater dimension of your purpose, by conquering self.
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:05.190
  • We've gotta stop ignoring this.
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:07.120
  • We gotta stop ignore-- Christians gotta stop tryin'
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:09.090
  • to get the victory in some other area when God's simply saying,
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:13.020
  • "Conquer yourself."
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:14.170
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:15.280
  • It means to conquer your thought life, it means to master your
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:18.220
  • emotions, and it means to follow Spirit-led decisions to make
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:23.170
  • Spirit-led, Word-centered, Bible-centered decisions
  • 00:16:23.180 --> 00:16:27.290
  • or choices.
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:29.090
  • This is what it means to conquer self, the mind to think,
  • 00:16:29.100 --> 00:16:33.140
  • the heart to feel, and the will to decide.
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:37.020
  • So, conquering self means conquering our thought life,
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:40.130
  • conquering our emotions, mastering our emotions, and it
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:44.080
  • means to guide--be guided or governed by Spirit-led
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:51.110
  • decisions, Spirit-led choices, rather than choices based on
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:56.080
  • our flesh or choices based on whatever the world is
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:17:00.290
  • telling us.
  • 00:17:01.000 --> 00:17:02.100
  • Are you still with me?
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:03.230
  • If you will get ahold of this, that you have the power
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:06.250
  • to control your thought life.
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.230
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:10.050
  • With God's Word.
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:11.260
  • Replace negative thinking with God's way of thinking.
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:16.280
  • Speak God's Word.
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:18.260
  • The tongue is more powerful than the mind.
  • 00:17:18.270 --> 00:17:24.240
  • What I mean by that is they're both very powerful in their own
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:27.240
  • right, but when you speak out loud, your thoughts submit
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:33.020
  • to whatever you're saying.
  • 00:17:33.030 --> 00:17:34.280
  • Well, we use this example.
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:36.090
  • I've used it many times.
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:37.190
  • You've heard me use it a million times and you know what to do.
  • 00:17:37.200 --> 00:17:39.090
  • I'm going to ask you, and silently, when I say go, I'm
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.220
  • gonna ask you to silently count to ten in your mind.
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:44.030
  • In your mind count to 10 silently as soon as I say go,
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:47.220
  • and wait for my next instruction, all right?
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:49.280
  • We're gonna--you're gonna count to ten in your mind silently.
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.240
  • Ready, go.
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:55.170
  • Now say your name out loud.
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:57.290
  • What happened when you said your name out loud?
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:18:00.150
  • You stopped counting.
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:01.250
  • Why?
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:03.060
  • Because your words took your thoughts captive.
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:05.160
  • Your words stopped the train of thinking.
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:09.280
  • Your words stopped the train of thinking.
  • 00:18:09.290 --> 00:18:12.100
  • So, when you--when all these thoughts come to you,
  • 00:18:12.110 --> 00:18:14.120
  • "You're a failure.
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.220
  • You're a loser," you declare, "I'm the head and not the tail.
  • 00:18:15.230 --> 00:18:18.140
  • I'm above only and not beneath.
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:19.240
  • I'm blessed comin' in and blessed goin' out.
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:21.120
  • I'm more than a conqueror.
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:22.220
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:25.250
  • You might not say it in that volume.
  • 00:18:25.260 --> 00:18:27.050
  • You might not say it in that tone.
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:28.270
  • You say it however you want to say it, but say it, because
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:30.250
  • when you say it, the train of thinking stops at your
  • 00:18:30.260 --> 00:18:35.090
  • spoken word.
  • 00:18:35.100 --> 00:18:40.000
  • That's how you conquer your thoughts.
  • 00:18:40.010 --> 00:18:41.200
  • How do you conquer your--master your emotions or your feelings?
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:44.200
  • You take your feelings to God, and be honest.
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:48.030
  • He already knows, so just-- but you have to express it.
  • 00:18:48.040 --> 00:18:51.090
  • You have to vent out.
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:52.210
  • God can handle it.
  • 00:18:52.220 --> 00:18:54.100
  • I can't handle it if you vent out at me.
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:57.180
  • Others can't handle it if you vent out towards them.
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:19:01.060
  • We respond a certain way.
  • 00:19:01.070 --> 00:19:02.170
  • We get gun shy.
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:03.270
  • We don't want to have conversation because if you're
  • 00:19:03.280 --> 00:19:06.070
  • gonna vent again--like, we can take it once with each other,
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:09.240
  • but once we start venting all the time to each other,
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:12.010
  • that's abusive.
  • 00:19:12.020 --> 00:19:14.190
  • I'm telling you, 'cause not everybody is a trained therapist
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:18.250
  • to be able to handle somebody else venting.
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:23.070
  • But God is the ultimate great physician, great therapist,
  • 00:19:23.080 --> 00:19:28.270
  • the comforter.
  • 00:19:28.280 --> 00:19:30.070
  • The mind of Christ, the Holy Spirit, the one who knows all,
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:33.030
  • sees all, loves all, forgives all, he can handle it.
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:37.100
  • Go to him. Go to him.
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:39.210
  • If Cain would have gone up vertically, he wouldn't have
  • 00:19:39.220 --> 00:19:41.120
  • gone out horizontally.
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:42.260
  • He went out in anger horizontally 'cause he didn't go
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:45.000
  • with his anger vertically to God.
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:47.210
  • You see, that's how you conquer your emotions.
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:50.100
  • You be honest about them.
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:51.240
  • Go to God about them.
  • 00:19:51.250 --> 00:19:53.290
  • You say, "Well, but isn't that a bad confession if I say,
  • 00:19:54.000 --> 00:19:56.280
  • 'Lord, I'm really struggling,' or 'I really want to hurt this
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:58.270
  • guy,' or 'I really want to get revenge, or I really wanna do
  • 00:19:58.280 --> 00:20:01.220
  • this, or do that, or do this bad thing, or do that bad thing'?"
  • 00:20:01.230 --> 00:20:05.140
  • No, it's not a bad confession, it's a confession to God.
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:09.060
  • It's confessing to him.
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:10.210
  • It's admitting how you feel so that he can help you.
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:14.150
  • What you're doing by admitting it is you're inviting his grace
  • 00:20:14.160 --> 00:20:16.240
  • to help you.
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:18.040
  • God gives grace to the humble.
  • 00:20:18.050 --> 00:20:19.220
  • God gives grace to the humble, the honest, the truthful,
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:22.110
  • the being real.
  • 00:20:22.120 --> 00:20:23.270
  • "God, here's how I feel.
  • 00:20:23.280 --> 00:20:25.080
  • I'm not gonna do it.
  • 00:20:25.090 --> 00:20:26.180
  • I don't want to do it, but I got to express it somehow,
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:29.040
  • and I'm expressing to you.
  • 00:20:29.050 --> 00:20:30.200
  • Heal me. Deliver me.
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:32.000
  • Free me. Help me."
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:34.050
  • How 'bout just something as simple as that?
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:37.260
  • And then how do you--so that's how you conquer your thoughts.
  • 00:20:37.270 --> 00:20:40.020
  • That's how you conqueror your emotions, master your emotions.
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:42.170
  • And how do you conquer your decisions?
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:44.090
  • You conquer your decisions by taking personal
  • 00:20:44.100 --> 00:20:47.050
  • responsibility for your choices and realize the power of choice.
  • 00:20:47.060 --> 00:20:52.200
  • That people have done things to you, there's no doubt
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:55.070
  • about it.
  • 00:20:55.080 --> 00:20:56.180
  • You have done things to yourself.
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:57.280
  • I've done things to me. I've done things to you.
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:20:59.290
  • I've done things to others that I regret.
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:02.010
  • You've done things to others that you regret.
  • 00:21:02.020 --> 00:21:03.120
  • You've done things to yourself that you regret.
  • 00:21:03.130 --> 00:21:04.220
  • But nobody has the power over how you respond.
  • 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:09.250
  • People have power to do certain things to you, but they don't
  • 00:21:09.260 --> 00:21:13.120
  • have the power to control and determine your response
  • 00:21:13.130 --> 00:21:18.050
  • or your reaction.
  • 00:21:18.060 --> 00:21:19.180
  • You are in control of that.
  • 00:21:19.190 --> 00:21:21.260
  • You're in control of how you respond to how you grew up.
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:24.260
  • You're--look, how you got in the situation you're in is
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:28.000
  • probably in part somebody else's fault, but while you stay
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:31.190
  • in that situation is your responsibility, not
  • 00:21:31.200 --> 00:21:34.270
  • somebody else's.
  • 00:21:34.280 --> 00:21:36.090
  • If somebody hurt you and abused you, they have--they are
  • 00:21:36.100 --> 00:21:41.210
  • at blame in many ways, but only you are at blame and responsible
  • 00:21:41.220 --> 00:21:46.170
  • if you stay in that condition without going to God,
  • 00:21:46.180 --> 00:21:50.080
  • without getting help, without telling somebody,
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:53.010
  • without going to the Word, without renewing your mind.
  • 00:21:53.020 --> 00:21:56.070
  • That's your responsibility.
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:58.030
  • Responsibility.
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:22:00.170
  • Responsibility, beloved.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:03.150
  • Responsibility is your ability to respond the way you choose
  • 00:22:03.160 --> 00:22:12.100
  • rather than responding in reaction to what somebody did
  • 00:22:12.110 --> 00:22:16.000
  • to you.
  • 00:22:16.010 --> 00:22:17.110
  • You can't control what they did to you, but you control how--
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:19.010
  • you can control how you respond.
  • 00:22:19.020 --> 00:22:21.120
  • That's your ability.
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:22.220
  • That's your power.
  • 00:22:22.230 --> 00:22:24.030
  • You have the power to respond.
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:26.020
  • When somebody hurts you, you have the power to respond
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:28.150
  • with your ability to forgive, your ability to pray, your
  • 00:22:28.160 --> 00:22:31.250
  • ability to show grace, your ability to show mercy, your
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:34.240
  • ability to let it go.
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:36.050
  • That's your ability.
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:37.160
  • That's your power.
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:38.260
  • Your response with your ability is what's gonna determine
  • 00:22:38.270 --> 00:22:41.230
  • the outcome of your life, not what they did to you.
  • 00:22:41.240 --> 00:22:44.020
  • And this is how we--this is how we conquer our choices, by not
  • 00:22:44.030 --> 00:22:49.150
  • letting people make our decisions for us, but by making
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:54.140
  • our own decision no matter what's been done to us, no
  • 00:22:54.150 --> 00:22:57.120
  • matter what life has done to us.
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:22:59.020
  • We choose to line our thoughts up, our emotions up, and our
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:03.170
  • decisions up with God's Word, God's way, and walk.
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:08.100
  • We will end up walking in God's perfect will.
  • 00:23:08.110 --> 00:23:11.290
  • Gregory Dickow: Well, I'm really thankful for you and for
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:18.120
  • joining me today.
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:19.220
  • And remember last week we learned about how to conquer our
  • 00:23:19.230 --> 00:23:22.070
  • past and conquer our pain?
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:24.040
  • And today's teaching, as you've heard, has been dedicated
  • 00:23:24.050 --> 00:23:26.130
  • to conquering ourselves.
  • 00:23:26.140 --> 00:23:28.050
  • And like I said, it's not about overcoming selfishness,
  • 00:23:28.060 --> 00:23:31.060
  • although it's always better to be generous than not,
  • 00:23:31.070 --> 00:23:33.180
  • but conquering yourself means ditching the old view that you
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:38.140
  • had of you, right, the old pictures, the old images that we
  • 00:23:38.150 --> 00:23:42.030
  • used to have ourselves, and tapping into what God thinks
  • 00:23:42.040 --> 00:23:45.200
  • about us, and letting go of how we've seen ourselves defeated,
  • 00:23:45.210 --> 00:23:49.150
  • sick, broken, anxious, depressed.
  • 00:23:49.160 --> 00:23:51.260
  • We need to let go of those images.
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:53.100
  • That's why I also shared with you how to conquer your
  • 00:23:53.110 --> 00:23:56.190
  • emotions today in today's teaching as well.
  • 00:23:56.200 --> 00:23:59.090
  • So, whatever--listen, whatever someone has done to you is 100%
  • 00:23:59.100 --> 00:24:03.150
  • on them, but our response is 100% on us.
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:08.030
  • There's power that we have to master our emotions and take
  • 00:24:08.040 --> 00:24:12.050
  • our emotions directly to God.
  • 00:24:12.060 --> 00:24:13.150
  • He can handle whatever you're goin' through, and so trust him
  • 00:24:13.160 --> 00:24:16.210
  • with it.
  • 00:24:16.220 --> 00:24:18.010
  • But what I've learned over 30 years I've been learning
  • 00:24:18.020 --> 00:24:19.230
  • and teaching on how to master my emotions, I want to share all
  • 00:24:19.240 --> 00:24:23.060
  • that with you.
  • 00:24:23.070 --> 00:24:24.160
  • So, in fact, I want to send you this week and last week's
  • 00:24:24.170 --> 00:24:28.180
  • teaching as my gift to you, and it will explain how
  • 00:24:28.190 --> 00:24:31.220
  • to activate the power you need to conquer your path, to master
  • 00:24:31.230 --> 00:24:35.290
  • your emotions.
  • 00:24:36.000 --> 00:24:37.100
  • I also want--I also feel led to send you my teaching called,
  • 00:24:37.110 --> 00:24:40.000
  • "Mastering Your Emotions."
  • 00:24:40.010 --> 00:24:41.180
  • The most recent one that I did, it'll change your life forever.
  • 00:24:41.190 --> 00:24:44.220
  • My announcer will tell you more and I'll be right back.
  • 00:24:44.230 --> 00:24:48.100
  • male announcer: Right now, we are working to send 2.000

  • native language, Creole, but we can't do that without your help.
  • 00:24:54.020 --> 00:24:58.060
