  • 00:00:00.633 --> 00:00:01.751
  • Allen jackson: the people you spend time with, the time
  • 00:00:01.885 --> 00:00:02.886
  • You give to the word of god.
  • 00:00:03.987 --> 00:00:07.557
  • You know, we do a daily bible-reading,
  • 00:00:07.557 --> 00:00:08.892
  • But honestly that's just intended to be an introduction.
  • 00:00:08.892 --> 00:00:12.595
  • And i know some days you're busy and some schedules have ups and
  • 00:00:12.595 --> 00:00:14.998
  • Downs in them, but hopefully what that will do is incubate in
  • 00:00:14.998 --> 00:00:18.435
  • You, elicit in you a desire to spend
  • 00:00:18.435 --> 00:00:21.304
  • More time in the word of god.
  • 00:00:21.304 --> 00:00:22.639
  • You need it to ground you.
  • 00:00:22.639 --> 00:00:25.008
  • ♪♪♪
  • 00:00:25.008 --> 00:00:40.890
  • Allen: you know, the bible tells us that we're to be
  • 00:00:44.994 --> 00:00:46.696
  • In the world but not of it.
  • 00:00:46.696 --> 00:00:48.865
  • There's a lot of trends that take place around us that we can
  • 00:00:48.865 --> 00:00:51.468
  • Observe, we can have an opinion about,
  • 00:00:51.468 --> 00:00:53.603
  • But we don't want to be swept along with them.
  • 00:00:53.603 --> 00:00:55.839
  • One of those is this descent into ungodliness.
  • 00:00:55.839 --> 00:00:58.675
  • We're setting aside a biblical worldview;
  • 00:00:58.675 --> 00:01:01.211
  • A commitment to the authority of scripture and imagining we can
  • 00:01:01.211 --> 00:01:03.680
  • Define truth subjectively based on how we feel,
  • 00:01:03.680 --> 00:01:07.150
  • We can define whether we're male or female based upon
  • 00:01:07.150 --> 00:01:09.853
  • The feelings of the day.
  • 00:01:09.853 --> 00:01:11.187
  • We're reluctant to define marriage or family
  • 00:01:11.187 --> 00:01:13.189
  • From a biblical perspective.
  • 00:01:13.189 --> 00:01:14.858
  • It's paganism. it's growing around us.
  • 00:01:14.858 --> 00:01:17.193
  • It's time for the church to find a voice.
  • 00:01:17.193 --> 00:01:19.596
  • You and i can be a part of that.
  • 00:01:19.596 --> 00:01:21.397
  • Enjoy the lesson.
  • 00:01:21.397 --> 00:01:23.166
  • Allen: see, we want a world with no turmoil.
  • 00:01:24.234 --> 00:01:25.969
  • We want a world with no conflict.
  • 00:01:25.969 --> 00:01:27.704
  • We want circumstances with no resistance.
  • 00:01:27.704 --> 00:01:31.975
  • We don't ever want bad news, right?
  • 00:01:31.975 --> 00:01:35.645
  • And so we imagine that our faith is going to give us that
  • 00:01:35.645 --> 00:01:38.281
  • Yellow-brick-road experience and if it doesn't we're mad at god,
  • 00:01:38.281 --> 00:01:42.585
  • But that really is not a biblically-informed imagination.
  • 00:01:42.585 --> 00:01:47.056
  • Jesus said in this world you will have
  • 00:01:47.056 --> 00:01:50.160
  • Winning lottery tickets.
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:53.696
  • No, if i remember correctly, he said, "in this world
  • 00:01:53.696 --> 00:01:55.698
  • You'll have trouble.
  • 00:01:55.698 --> 00:01:57.467
  • But be of good cheer! i have overcome the world."
  • 00:01:57.467 --> 00:02:01.804
  • And then we're called to be overcomers as well in christ.
  • 00:02:01.804 --> 00:02:07.076
  • "my peace i give to you," he said.
  • 00:02:07.076 --> 00:02:09.546
  • "you will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast
  • 00:02:09.546 --> 00:02:14.684
  • Because he trusts in you."
  • 00:02:14.684 --> 00:02:16.252
  • To dwell in god's peace is going to revo--require the involvement
  • 00:02:16.252 --> 00:02:21.090
  • Of your thoughts, and the real focus,
  • 00:02:21.090 --> 00:02:25.728
  • The bedrock of that is to trust in the lord.
  • 00:02:25.728 --> 00:02:31.100
  • So there's an interplay here between trust
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:34.003
  • And peace and fear.
  • 00:02:34.003 --> 00:02:37.207
  • Where fear is flourishing, our trust is diminished.
  • 00:02:37.207 --> 00:02:40.944
  • If there are things that frighten you, that make
  • 00:02:40.944 --> 00:02:42.478
  • You--that might bring anxiety to you and uncertain to you,
  • 00:02:42.478 --> 00:02:45.114
  • It's a place where you haven't yet established
  • 00:02:45.114 --> 00:02:47.250
  • Trust in the lord.
  • 00:02:47.250 --> 00:02:49.919
  • You imagine that you could secure that,
  • 00:02:49.919 --> 00:02:51.921
  • And your ability to secure something is threatened, so it
  • 00:02:51.921 --> 00:02:54.791
  • Creates anxiety and fear.
  • 00:02:54.791 --> 00:02:58.027
  • Rather than be ashamed or embarrassed
  • 00:02:58.027 --> 00:02:59.896
  • Or angry or mad at god, how about if we began to say,
  • 00:02:59.896 --> 00:03:03.066
  • "lord, i realize there's someplace here
  • 00:03:03.066 --> 00:03:04.634
  • Where i have not trusted you.
  • 00:03:04.634 --> 00:03:08.371
  • I've been trusting in myself.
  • 00:03:08.371 --> 00:03:11.441
  • Thank you for that awareness.
  • 00:03:11.441 --> 00:03:13.142
  • Help me learn to trust you in this area.
  • 00:03:13.142 --> 00:03:15.511
  • Holy spirit, i need your help.
  • 00:03:15.511 --> 00:03:19.415
  • I don't want to forget all your benefits."
  • 00:03:19.415 --> 00:03:24.387
  • Look at psalm 56, verse 3.
  • 00:03:24.387 --> 00:03:25.989
  • "when i am afraid, i'll trust in you."
  • 00:03:25.989 --> 00:03:32.228
  • So it acknowledges that fear comes.
  • 00:03:32.228 --> 00:03:34.631
  • What's the response when you're frightened?
  • 00:03:34.631 --> 00:03:36.199
  • "god, i need to trust you here.
  • 00:03:36.199 --> 00:03:41.337
  • I need to trust you."
  • 00:03:41.337 --> 00:03:47.176
  • So how do--what do we do to incubate trust?
  • 00:03:47.176 --> 00:03:55.485
  • And that's an interesting question, and it's beyond the
  • 00:03:55.485 --> 00:03:58.154
  • Scope of a single presentation.
  • 00:03:58.154 --> 00:04:01.958
  • Some of that has to do about the people you spend your time with.
  • 00:04:01.958 --> 00:04:06.529
  • And if i want to go fishing and i want to come home with fish,
  • 00:04:06.529 --> 00:04:10.566
  • I want to go fishing with people who are much
  • 00:04:10.566 --> 00:04:12.201
  • Better fishermen than i am.
  • 00:04:12.201 --> 00:04:15.672
  • I don't want to go fishing with people that don't know
  • 00:04:15.672 --> 00:04:17.707
  • Which end of the rod to use.
  • 00:04:17.707 --> 00:04:23.146
  • If--you know, and that pattern holds true across--
  • 00:04:23.146 --> 00:04:26.816
  • So one of the things i try to do is spend time with people who
  • 00:04:26.816 --> 00:04:29.485
  • Have an interest in an active and vibrant faith.
  • 00:04:29.485 --> 00:04:33.690
  • They don't have to be preachers, and i don't mean kooky.
  • 00:04:33.690 --> 00:04:37.994
  • There's a difference in genuine faith and kooky faith.
  • 00:04:37.994 --> 00:04:42.632
  • You'll know it when you meet it.
  • 00:04:42.632 --> 00:04:45.234
  • I'm--you know, i'm not really overly impressed with--i think
  • 00:04:45.234 --> 00:04:50.473
  • Faith in god draws your attention to god and not to the
  • 00:04:50.473 --> 00:04:53.076
  • Person that says they're demonstrating their faith.
  • 00:04:53.076 --> 00:04:56.979
  • We've got to become more discerning.
  • 00:04:56.979 --> 00:04:59.949
  • The antichrist will be a supernatural person.
  • 00:04:59.949 --> 00:05:03.986
  • So it isn't just about miracles or supernatural things or
  • 00:05:03.986 --> 00:05:06.289
  • Vocabulary words, but one of the things i like to do is i will
  • 00:05:06.289 --> 00:05:09.859
  • Work hard to spend time with people that have
  • 00:05:09.859 --> 00:05:13.096
  • A genuine faith in the lord.
  • 00:05:13.096 --> 00:05:14.430
  • And they don't have to always be more mature than me,
  • 00:05:14.430 --> 00:05:16.232
  • They have to be sincere in their faith.
  • 00:05:16.232 --> 00:05:20.303
  • In the same way, spending time with small children,
  • 00:05:20.303 --> 00:05:22.572
  • Does it remind you of what purity feels like sometimes?
  • 00:05:22.572 --> 00:05:24.907
  • There's an innocent--it's innocence in small children.
  • 00:05:24.907 --> 00:05:27.744
  • Sometimes there's an innocence in new believers that are truly
  • 00:05:27.744 --> 00:05:30.213
  • Seeking the lord that will challenge you.
  • 00:05:30.213 --> 00:05:33.149
  • They have a hunger for the lord and for the things of the lord.
  • 00:05:33.149 --> 00:05:35.284
  • They're willing to say they've been in a mess and that god
  • 00:05:35.284 --> 00:05:38.020
  • Is cleaning up their life and putting
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:39.355
  • Their feet on a new path.
  • 00:05:39.355 --> 00:05:40.690
  • That's a very helpful attitude to spend time with because
  • 00:05:40.690 --> 00:05:45.027
  • Sometimes if you've been around the lord for a while or around
  • 00:05:45.027 --> 00:05:47.330
  • God's people, we get really callous.
  • 00:05:47.330 --> 00:05:48.898
  • We act like we don't even remember what sin was.
  • 00:05:48.898 --> 00:05:52.301
  • I mean, we knew a sinner once, but it's been so long ago.
  • 00:05:52.301 --> 00:05:56.472
  • [blowing raspberry]
  • 00:05:56.472 --> 00:05:59.275
  • That's horse for baloney.
  • 00:05:59.275 --> 00:06:06.048
  • The people you spend time with, the time you give
  • 00:06:06.048 --> 00:06:08.785
  • To the word of god.
  • 00:06:08.785 --> 00:06:11.921
  • You know, we do a daily bible-reading,
  • 00:06:11.921 --> 00:06:13.256
  • But honestly that's just intended to be an introduction.
  • 00:06:13.256 --> 00:06:16.893
  • And i know some days you're busy and some schedules have ups and
  • 00:06:16.893 --> 00:06:19.328
  • Downs in them, but hopefully what that will do is incubate in
  • 00:06:19.328 --> 00:06:22.732
  • You, elicit in you a desire to spend
  • 00:06:22.732 --> 00:06:25.635
  • More time in the word of god.
  • 00:06:25.635 --> 00:06:26.969
  • You need it to ground you.
  • 00:06:26.969 --> 00:06:30.006
  • Pray in the spirit.
  • 00:06:30.006 --> 00:06:33.309
  • If you don't know what that means,
  • 00:06:33.309 --> 00:06:35.311
  • Get the book out there.
  • 00:06:35.311 --> 00:06:36.646
  • What is it, "power of the holy spirit"?
  • 00:06:36.646 --> 00:06:39.148
  • "unleashing the power of the holy spirit."
  • 00:06:39.148 --> 00:06:41.651
  • It's just a collection of sermons we've done,
  • 00:06:41.651 --> 00:06:43.019
  • But it'll walk you into that.
  • 00:06:43.019 --> 00:06:44.520
  • You need all the help from the spirit of god
  • 00:06:44.520 --> 00:06:47.190
  • That's available to you, period.
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:50.526
  • It's not about joining a group. it's not about being special.
  • 00:06:50.526 --> 00:06:52.829
  • It's not just--how do we maintain?
  • 00:06:52.829 --> 00:06:55.031
  • How do we grow in trust?
  • 00:06:55.031 --> 00:06:57.233
  • Well, a part of that is recognizing
  • 00:06:57.233 --> 00:06:58.634
  • The revelation god has given us.
  • 00:06:58.634 --> 00:07:00.169
  • And i'm going to wrap it up with these statements,
  • 00:07:00.169 --> 00:07:02.805
  • But in genesis 22, there are seven covenant names of god that
  • 00:07:02.805 --> 00:07:07.810
  • Are revealed in scripture.
  • 00:07:07.810 --> 00:07:09.812
  • And we're not going to look at all seven, but they are
  • 00:07:09.812 --> 00:07:12.181
  • Unique revelations of the character of god to humanity.
  • 00:07:12.181 --> 00:07:18.087
  • They're not abstract theological principles,
  • 00:07:18.087 --> 00:07:20.056
  • They're all delivered in a very human context with the lesson
  • 00:07:20.056 --> 00:07:23.359
  • About god's character and his desire to be involved with us,
  • 00:07:23.359 --> 00:07:27.430
  • But they're delivered to us as a part of the covenant that we
  • 00:07:27.430 --> 00:07:29.765
  • Have with god through that covenant made with abraham.
  • 00:07:29.765 --> 00:07:34.737
  • For instance, in genesis 22, this is the--
  • 00:07:34.737 --> 00:07:38.574
  • Remember when god said to abraham after he waited and
  • 00:07:38.574 --> 00:07:41.177
  • Waited for isaac, the child, the promise, and isaac finally came,
  • 00:07:41.177 --> 00:07:45.014
  • And god said, "i want you to offer isaac as a sacrifice"?
  • 00:07:45.014 --> 00:07:48.784
  • Unimaginable.
  • 00:07:48.784 --> 00:07:51.387
  • And abraham said, "grab some wood, we need some fire,
  • 00:07:51.387 --> 00:07:55.024
  • And, isaac, we're going to take a trip."
  • 00:07:55.024 --> 00:08:00.496
  • And they headed for mount moriah.
  • 00:08:00.496 --> 00:08:03.165
  • The mountain where isaac--where abraham built an altar and put
  • 00:08:03.165 --> 00:08:06.636
  • Isaac on the altar to offer him as a sacrifice to god is the
  • 00:08:06.636 --> 00:08:10.640
  • Same mountain where the temple would be built and where jesus
  • 00:08:10.640 --> 00:08:13.309
  • Would be offered as a sacrifice.
  • 00:08:13.309 --> 00:08:17.947
  • So abraham follows through with that.
  • 00:08:17.947 --> 00:08:20.516
  • They climb the mountain.
  • 00:08:20.516 --> 00:08:21.851
  • He builds--he lays the stones for the altar.
  • 00:08:21.851 --> 00:08:23.686
  • He puts the wood on the altar.
  • 00:08:23.686 --> 00:08:25.021
  • He binds his son and puts him on the altar and draws back the
  • 00:08:25.021 --> 00:08:31.327
  • Knife, and the lord says, "don't touch that boy."
  • 00:08:31.327 --> 00:08:36.432
  • And the bible tells us that abraham believed that even if
  • 00:08:36.432 --> 00:08:38.434
  • He'd taken his life, god would have raised him to life again,
  • 00:08:38.434 --> 00:08:42.905
  • But in that moment of profound obedience--you talk
  • 00:08:42.905 --> 00:08:45.274
  • About disciplined emotions.
  • 00:08:45.274 --> 00:08:48.244
  • There's no sloppy emotions in that story.
  • 00:08:48.244 --> 00:08:51.914
  • Listen to what god says to abraham.
  • 00:08:51.914 --> 00:08:53.282
  • It's genesis 22:14.
  • 00:08:53.282 --> 00:08:55.284
  • "so abraham called that place the lord will provide,
  • 00:08:55.284 --> 00:09:00.323
  • And to this day it is said, 'on the mountain of the
  • 00:09:00.323 --> 00:09:02.224
  • Lord it will be provided.'"
  • 00:09:02.224 --> 00:09:05.394
  • Well, in hebrew it's jehovah-jireh,
  • 00:09:05.394 --> 00:09:08.631
  • The lord is our provider.
  • 00:09:08.631 --> 00:09:11.167
  • But we've ripped that out of its context,
  • 00:09:11.167 --> 00:09:13.102
  • And we use it really sloppily.
  • 00:09:13.102 --> 00:09:15.738
  • "the lord will provide all the things i want."
  • 00:09:15.738 --> 00:09:20.376
  • And god is very good and gracious to us.
  • 00:09:20.376 --> 00:09:22.678
  • I'm not questioning the generosity of god,
  • 00:09:22.678 --> 00:09:26.882
  • But that revelation came to abraham in the midst of an
  • 00:09:26.882 --> 00:09:29.085
  • Expression of obedience that is just about beyond comprehension.
  • 00:09:29.085 --> 00:09:37.259
  • Is that fair?
  • 00:09:37.259 --> 00:09:39.395
  • So we have this presentation of god our provider.
  • 00:09:39.395 --> 00:09:42.598
  • So whatever needs you face, whatever turmoil may come to the
  • 00:09:42.598 --> 00:09:45.568
  • Earth, whatever economic chaos seems to be unfolding around us,
  • 00:09:45.568 --> 00:09:50.006
  • What are you going to--you're going to be angry,
  • 00:09:50.006 --> 00:09:51.807
  • Panicked, frightened, worried, concerned,
  • 00:09:51.807 --> 00:09:56.345
  • Or will you begin to build the trust in the lord our provider?
  • 00:09:56.345 --> 00:10:02.418
  • If he could provide in that moment of duress for abraham,
  • 00:10:02.418 --> 00:10:04.720
  • I believe he can take us through.
  • 00:10:04.720 --> 00:10:07.723
  • If he could feed the hebrew slaves in the midst of a barren
  • 00:10:07.723 --> 00:10:11.327
  • Desert with no green thing growing or provide water for
  • 00:10:11.327 --> 00:10:16.432
  • Them in that barren wilderness, he'll take care of us.
  • 00:10:16.432 --> 00:10:21.871
  • You have to think about that.
  • 00:10:21.871 --> 00:10:23.205
  • You want to talk to the lord about that.
  • 00:10:23.205 --> 00:10:24.907
  • Make a list of the places in your life where god has given
  • 00:10:24.907 --> 00:10:27.176
  • You outcomes that were disproportionate with either the
  • 00:10:27.176 --> 00:10:29.545
  • Efforts you invested or the wisdom you had or he caused the
  • 00:10:29.545 --> 00:10:35.284
  • Resources you had to extend further than you imagined.
  • 00:10:35.284 --> 00:10:41.323
  • Reflect on it.
  • 00:10:41.323 --> 00:10:42.658
  • Don't forget the lord and all of his benefits.
  • 00:10:42.658 --> 00:10:45.394
  • He has provided for you.
  • 00:10:45.394 --> 00:10:48.264
  • Most of us have so much, we don't know
  • 00:10:48.264 --> 00:10:49.598
  • Where to store it all.
  • 00:10:49.598 --> 00:10:51.500
  • We have so much food. there's too much of us.
  • 00:10:51.500 --> 00:10:55.504
  • Allen: hey, we are walking through a season of instability
  • 00:10:59.642 --> 00:11:02.044
  • Unprecedented in recent years.
  • 00:11:02.044 --> 00:11:03.913
  • We've never seen anything quite like this.
  • 00:11:03.913 --> 00:11:06.115
  • But i don't believe it's a time to be afraid,
  • 00:11:06.115 --> 00:11:07.850
  • I believe it's a time for a courageous
  • 00:11:07.850 --> 00:11:09.618
  • Response from god's people.
  • 00:11:09.618 --> 00:11:11.821
  • Well, the team has pulled together some prayers that we've
  • 00:11:11.821 --> 00:11:13.823
  • Been leaning on here at the church centered in the cross and
  • 00:11:13.823 --> 00:11:16.926
  • Its provision for our lives.
  • 00:11:16.926 --> 00:11:18.928
  • You see, our stability doesn't come from the government or a
  • 00:11:18.928 --> 00:11:20.896
  • Political party or an elected leader;
  • 00:11:20.896 --> 00:11:22.965
  • It comes to us through the cross of jesus christ.
  • 00:11:22.965 --> 00:11:25.634
  • It's not just our provision for eternity.
  • 00:11:25.634 --> 00:11:27.703
  • It's not just a get-out-of-hell-free card.
  • 00:11:27.703 --> 00:11:30.072
  • It's everything we need, the scripture says,
  • 00:11:30.072 --> 00:11:32.441
  • For life and godliness made available to us through the
  • 00:11:32.441 --> 00:11:35.311
  • Cross of jesus christ.
  • 00:11:35.311 --> 00:11:37.480
  • These prayers will ground you on a daily basis to help you
  • 00:11:37.480 --> 00:11:40.182
  • Triumph over fear, anxiety, uncertainty.
  • 00:11:40.182 --> 00:11:43.519
  • We're not alone.
  • 00:11:43.519 --> 00:11:44.987
  • Almighty god has made provision for us,
  • 00:11:44.987 --> 00:11:47.423
  • And it's through the cross of his son, jesus.
  • 00:11:47.423 --> 00:11:49.859
  • Take these prayers, put them into your life on a daily basis.
  • 00:11:49.859 --> 00:11:52.995
  • They'll strengthen you, your family, your friends.
  • 00:11:52.995 --> 00:11:55.397
  • They'll make a difference.
  • 00:11:55.397 --> 00:11:56.799
  • Enjoy the prayers.
  • 00:11:56.799 --> 00:11:59.602
  • Female announcer: being a person who prays is not about
  • 00:11:59.602 --> 00:12:01.670
  • How many minutes you invest, it's about intentionally
  • 00:12:01.670 --> 00:12:04.874
  • Inviting god into all the moments of your life.
  • 00:12:04.874 --> 00:12:07.910
  • Make prayer a habit and see how the power of god begins to move
  • 00:12:07.910 --> 00:12:11.313
  • In your home, your work, your relationships,
  • 00:12:11.313 --> 00:12:14.049
  • And your circumstances.
  • 00:12:14.049 --> 00:12:16.352

  • 00:14:24.213 --> 00:14:27.016
  • Allen: look in at exodus 15.
  • 00:14:30.653 --> 00:14:33.188
  • This is moses.
  • 00:14:33.188 --> 00:14:34.623
  • We're little deeper into the narrative.
  • 00:14:34.623 --> 00:14:37.259
  • They're out of egypt.
  • 00:14:37.259 --> 00:14:38.961
  • They've crossed the red sea. this is their first stop.
  • 00:14:38.961 --> 00:14:42.431
  • The water is not good.
  • 00:14:42.431 --> 00:14:43.766
  • They can't drink the water, and the people are talking
  • 00:14:43.766 --> 00:14:45.868
  • About stoning moses.
  • 00:14:45.868 --> 00:14:48.904
  • They had it so good in egypt.
  • 00:14:48.904 --> 00:14:50.239
  • "let's kill the guy that got us out."
  • 00:14:50.239 --> 00:14:53.175
  • "then moses cried out to the lord,
  • 00:14:53.175 --> 00:14:54.510
  • And the lord showed him a piece of wood,
  • 00:14:54.510 --> 00:14:55.878
  • And he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
  • 00:14:55.878 --> 00:14:59.882
  • And the lord made a decree and a law for them.
  • 00:14:59.882 --> 00:15:01.984
  • There he tested them.
  • 00:15:01.984 --> 00:15:04.019
  • He said, 'if--'" and you ought to circle that little word.
  • 00:15:04.019 --> 00:15:06.622
  • It's little preposition, but it's a conditional promise.
  • 00:15:06.622 --> 00:15:09.124
  • "if you listen carefully to the voice of the lord your god and
  • 00:15:09.124 --> 00:15:12.394
  • You do what's right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his
  • 00:15:12.394 --> 00:15:15.197
  • Commands and keep all of his decrees,
  • 00:15:15.197 --> 00:15:18.167
  • I will not bring on you any of the diseases i brought on the
  • 00:15:18.167 --> 00:15:20.569
  • Egyptians, for i'm the lord, who heals you."
  • 00:15:20.569 --> 00:15:24.673
  • It's another one of those covenant revelations.
  • 00:15:24.673 --> 00:15:28.677
  • In hebrew it's jehovah-rapha.
  • 00:15:28.677 --> 00:15:30.279
  • Rapha is the modern-day word in hebrew
  • 00:15:30.279 --> 00:15:33.182
  • For a physician, a medical doctor.
  • 00:15:33.182 --> 00:15:35.584
  • God said, "i'll be your doctor.
  • 00:15:35.584 --> 00:15:38.354
  • If you'll listen to me, if you'll be obedient to me--
  • 00:15:38.354 --> 00:15:42.091
  • Oh, yeah, i can make the water drinkable,
  • 00:15:42.091 --> 00:15:43.859
  • But i can do more than that.
  • 00:15:43.859 --> 00:15:45.194
  • I'll be your doctor.
  • 00:15:45.194 --> 00:15:46.528
  • You won't have all those sicknesses and diseases
  • 00:15:46.528 --> 00:15:48.263
  • That you saw in egypt."
  • 00:15:48.263 --> 00:15:50.733
  • It says when they left egypt, there were no sick amongst them.
  • 00:15:50.733 --> 00:15:55.704
  • Can you imagine?
  • 00:15:55.704 --> 00:15:58.741
  • You have to think about that.
  • 00:15:58.741 --> 00:16:00.743
  • You need to meditate, reflect on the times god has restored your
  • 00:16:00.743 --> 00:16:03.645
  • Health, the times god's brought you through.
  • 00:16:03.645 --> 00:16:06.849
  • He just kept you through a pandemic.
  • 00:16:06.849 --> 00:16:08.417
  • Don't tell me he's never done anything for you.
  • 00:16:08.417 --> 00:16:12.554
  • He's been good to us.
  • 00:16:12.554 --> 00:16:13.989
  • Think about it. remember it.
  • 00:16:13.989 --> 00:16:15.657
  • The times there was health care available when you needed health
  • 00:16:15.657 --> 00:16:17.893
  • Care and you got a good outcome, the time when you had medicines
  • 00:16:17.893 --> 00:16:21.797
  • Available for your children when they needed them.
  • 00:16:21.797 --> 00:16:23.899
  • "lord, you've been faithful to me.
  • 00:16:23.899 --> 00:16:26.702
  • You've watched over me.
  • 00:16:26.702 --> 00:16:29.438
  • The times when disease and sickness
  • 00:16:29.438 --> 00:16:31.340
  • Have not overwhelmed me.
  • 00:16:31.340 --> 00:16:33.208
  • God, i thank you."
  • 00:16:33.208 --> 00:16:36.445
  • Don't forget his benefits.
  • 00:16:36.445 --> 00:16:40.315
  • Stop looking at the wind and the waves and start to discipline
  • 00:16:40.315 --> 00:16:43.452
  • Your thoughts and your emotions to be filled with what god has
  • 00:16:43.452 --> 00:16:46.922
  • Done in your life.
  • 00:16:46.922 --> 00:16:49.124
  • Talk to one another about it. tell your god stories.
  • 00:16:49.124 --> 00:16:51.827
  • Listen to one another.
  • 00:16:51.827 --> 00:16:53.395
  • Stop repeating the evil.
  • 00:16:53.395 --> 00:16:56.498
  • Turn off the internet.
  • 00:16:56.498 --> 00:17:00.436
  • Stop listening to the knuckleheads and stop indulging
  • 00:17:00.436 --> 00:17:03.372
  • Your carnal self and begin to fill your heart and mind.
  • 00:17:03.372 --> 00:17:07.076
  • Folks, you--it's not our imagination.
  • 00:17:07.076 --> 00:17:08.844
  • We're walking to a storm, and to do that there are some
  • 00:17:08.844 --> 00:17:12.681
  • Precautions that are necessary.
  • 00:17:12.681 --> 00:17:15.384
  • Look at exodus 17.
  • 00:17:15.384 --> 00:17:18.287
  • Same journey from egypt on the way to the promised land,
  • 00:17:18.287 --> 00:17:21.090
  • And now there's a battle taking place.
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:22.658
  • And moses is on top of the hill watching the armies fight;
  • 00:17:22.658 --> 00:17:26.595
  • And as long as he holds the staff of god in the air, his
  • 00:17:26.595 --> 00:17:28.864
  • Team wins, but when his arms get tired and he drops
  • 00:17:28.864 --> 00:17:32.301
  • His arms, the hebrews lose.
  • 00:17:32.301 --> 00:17:36.105
  • So aaron and hur figure this out.
  • 00:17:36.105 --> 00:17:37.439
  • Don't you know it had to happen more than once?
  • 00:17:37.439 --> 00:17:40.876
  • Hot, cold, hot, cold.
  • 00:17:40.876 --> 00:17:43.445
  • And they finally--they kind of figured out the correlation.
  • 00:17:43.445 --> 00:17:46.115
  • So they say, "we'll hold your arms up when you're too tired to
  • 00:17:46.115 --> 00:17:49.384
  • Hold your own arms up."
  • 00:17:49.384 --> 00:17:52.321
  • So they brought rocks and--i mean,
  • 00:17:52.321 --> 00:17:53.722
  • They worked, orchestrated plan.
  • 00:17:53.722 --> 00:17:57.893
  • Their status on the top of the hill had a bearing on what
  • 00:17:57.893 --> 00:18:00.863
  • Was happening on the field.
  • 00:18:00.863 --> 00:18:02.197
  • Do you believe that your attitude towards the lord has a
  • 00:18:02.197 --> 00:18:04.133
  • Bearing on what happens in this nation?
  • 00:18:04.133 --> 00:18:07.970
  • I promise you.
  • 00:18:07.970 --> 00:18:10.639
  • "the lord said to moses," exodus 17:14,
  • 00:18:10.639 --> 00:18:13.642
  • "'write on this scroll as something to be remembered,
  • 00:18:13.642 --> 00:18:18.347
  • And make sure that joshua hears it, because i will completely
  • 00:18:18.347 --> 00:18:22.718
  • Blot out of the memory of amalek from under heaven.'
  • 00:18:22.718 --> 00:18:27.156
  • And moses built an altar, and he called it
  • 00:18:27.156 --> 00:18:29.224
  • The lord is my banner."
  • 00:18:29.224 --> 00:18:31.827
  • Jehovah-nissi.
  • 00:18:31.827 --> 00:18:34.363
  • When the enemy comes in like a flood,
  • 00:18:34.363 --> 00:18:36.865
  • The lord said, "i'll raise up a standard, a banner against him."
  • 00:18:36.865 --> 00:18:42.771
  • The idea of carrying a banner or a standard into battle as a
  • 00:18:42.771 --> 00:18:47.109
  • Point of rallying those who are on the same side is as old as
  • 00:18:47.109 --> 00:18:53.081
  • Conflict, and that was played out that day.
  • 00:18:53.081 --> 00:18:56.919
  • As long as moses held up the symbol of god's power in the
  • 00:18:56.919 --> 00:19:00.822
  • Midst of his life and as a leader of those people,
  • 00:19:00.822 --> 00:19:04.159
  • Victory came to them, and when he was incapable of doing on his
  • 00:19:04.159 --> 00:19:07.462
  • Own, those that were standing with him did everything in their
  • 00:19:07.462 --> 00:19:11.433
  • Power to ensure that victory.
  • 00:19:11.433 --> 00:19:13.335
  • And god said, "be sure joshua knows this story 'cause joshua
  • 00:19:13.335 --> 00:19:19.908
  • Has a whole lot more conflict in front of him.
  • 00:19:19.908 --> 00:19:23.645
  • He's going to have to lead the conquest."
  • 00:19:23.645 --> 00:19:27.683
  • In judges chapter 6, the lord said to--this is gideon.
  • 00:19:27.683 --> 00:19:31.019
  • Remember gideon, one of the judges,
  • 00:19:31.019 --> 00:19:32.354
  • One of the leaders of israel?
  • 00:19:32.354 --> 00:19:33.822
  • Except at this point in time, gideon doesn't know
  • 00:19:33.822 --> 00:19:35.724
  • He's a leader of israel.
  • 00:19:35.724 --> 00:19:37.726
  • He's a frightened young man.
  • 00:19:37.726 --> 00:19:39.561
  • He's hiding from the enemy, trying to get enough food for
  • 00:19:39.561 --> 00:19:41.463
  • His family, and the angel of the lord comes and says,
  • 00:19:41.463 --> 00:19:43.932
  • "behold, mighty man of valor."
  • 00:19:43.932 --> 00:19:45.734
  • And gideon looks around to see who he's talking to.
  • 00:19:45.734 --> 00:19:49.304
  • Now, he says, "no, you don't understand.
  • 00:19:49.304 --> 00:19:50.639
  • I'm the least significant in my family,
  • 00:19:50.639 --> 00:19:53.542
  • And my family is the least significant in our tribe,
  • 00:19:53.542 --> 00:19:56.044
  • And our tribe is the least significant in our clan.
  • 00:19:56.044 --> 00:19:59.047
  • And you clearly--you got the wrong number in your gps."
  • 00:19:59.047 --> 00:20:06.221
  • And god said no.
  • 00:20:06.221 --> 00:20:08.390
  • And then gideon starts in with all the fleeces.
  • 00:20:08.390 --> 00:20:11.360
  • You know, no dew on the fleece and then no dew on the grass
  • 00:20:11.360 --> 00:20:15.731
  • And--i mean, what he was really trying to find was no do.
  • 00:20:15.731 --> 00:20:20.969
  • He didn't want to do what god was asking him to do, right?
  • 00:20:20.969 --> 00:20:25.540
  • We've been there.
  • 00:20:25.540 --> 00:20:26.875
  • "well, lord, if that's you, if you really want me to do that,
  • 00:20:26.875 --> 00:20:31.013
  • Let the sun go backwards."
  • 00:20:31.013 --> 00:20:35.684
  • I've prayed that prayer.
  • 00:20:35.684 --> 00:20:39.121
  • So this is god.
  • 00:20:39.121 --> 00:20:40.522
  • "the lord said to gideon, 'peace.
  • 00:20:40.522 --> 00:20:43.825
  • Do not be afraid.'"
  • 00:20:43.825 --> 00:20:45.394
  • What do you know gideon was?
  • 00:20:45.394 --> 00:20:47.896
  • Anxious and frightened.
  • 00:20:47.896 --> 00:20:51.166
  • "'you're not going to die.'
  • 00:20:51.166 --> 00:20:53.669
  • So gideon built an altar to the lord there and he called
  • 00:20:53.669 --> 00:20:56.838
  • It the lord is peace."
  • 00:20:56.838 --> 00:20:59.541
  • Jehovah shalom.
  • 00:20:59.541 --> 00:21:02.944
  • It's more than peace. it's a very robust word.
  • 00:21:02.944 --> 00:21:09.217
  • Content, without anxiousness, secure.
  • 00:21:09.217 --> 00:21:17.926
  • And if you start to build these together,
  • 00:21:17.926 --> 00:21:21.430
  • It's an amazing set of promises.
  • 00:21:21.430 --> 00:21:23.098
  • The lord that will provide, the lord who will heal,
  • 00:21:23.098 --> 00:21:28.103
  • The god who is my banner, god who is my peace.
  • 00:21:28.103 --> 00:21:33.909
  • Who's going to take your peace away if the creator of heaven
  • 00:21:33.909 --> 00:21:36.578
  • And earth is your peace?
  • 00:21:36.578 --> 00:21:39.815
  • A politician? no, i don't think so.
  • 00:21:39.815 --> 00:21:44.286
  • A school board? uh-uh.
  • 00:21:44.286 --> 00:21:47.289
  • Wall street? nope.
  • 00:21:47.289 --> 00:21:50.292
  • You see, we cannot afford to forget the lord's benefits.
  • 00:21:50.292 --> 00:21:57.632
  • It's worth meditating on, thinking about, not in the
  • 00:21:57.632 --> 00:22:00.202
  • Abstract and not just in the biblical sense,
  • 00:22:00.202 --> 00:22:02.504
  • In your own story.
  • 00:22:02.504 --> 00:22:05.507
  • Turn your thoughts and your emotions to the places where god
  • 00:22:05.507 --> 00:22:08.844
  • Has brought those victories, where you've
  • 00:22:08.844 --> 00:22:11.012
  • Experienced his faithfulness.
  • 00:22:11.012 --> 00:22:14.916
  • Sometimes if it's a difficult day or a difficult week--i've
  • 00:22:14.916 --> 00:22:18.987
  • Walked down in the lobby of the church and walked down to where
  • 00:22:18.987 --> 00:22:20.956
  • Those picture boards are down by the café,
  • 00:22:20.956 --> 00:22:25.827
  • And i'll stand and look at those pictures and i remember those
  • 00:22:25.827 --> 00:22:27.996
  • Times and places and how we've experienced the faithfulness of
  • 00:22:27.996 --> 00:22:31.400
  • God in community 'cause in those snapshots,
  • 00:22:31.400 --> 00:22:36.938
  • For me, in most of them there's lots of emotions around the
  • 00:22:36.938 --> 00:22:39.241
  • Scenes that are there.
  • 00:22:39.241 --> 00:22:41.443
  • Sometimes i look at the pictures and i just get exhausted 'cause
  • 00:22:41.443 --> 00:22:43.345
  • I remember what we were doing, but i think,
  • 00:22:43.345 --> 00:22:46.281
  • "god, you've been faithful.
  • 00:22:46.281 --> 00:22:48.316
  • And if you were faithful there and there and there,
  • 00:22:48.316 --> 00:22:50.585
  • I think you'll be faithful here."
  • 00:22:50.585 --> 00:22:54.156
  • And then i'll go find some people that i know are doing
  • 00:22:54.156 --> 00:22:56.458
  • Their best to walk with the lord, and i'll say,
  • 00:22:56.458 --> 00:22:57.926
  • "tell me what the lord's doing in your life."
  • 00:22:57.926 --> 00:22:59.628
  • And i'll listen to their stories,
  • 00:22:59.628 --> 00:23:01.129
  • And as i do that, i begin to push back on the anxiety and the
  • 00:23:01.129 --> 00:23:04.433
  • Uncertainty and the fear.
  • 00:23:04.433 --> 00:23:08.870
  • "trust in the lord with all your heart and forget
  • 00:23:08.870 --> 00:23:12.040
  • Not all his benefits."
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:16.244
  • When you begin to occupy the places god created you to
  • 00:23:16.244 --> 00:23:18.914
  • Occupy, don't forget who put you there.
  • 00:23:18.914 --> 00:23:23.151
  • Don't imagine you built the cities and planted
  • 00:23:23.151 --> 00:23:25.187
  • The vineyards and dug the wells.
  • 00:23:25.187 --> 00:23:26.521
  • Remember who puts you there or you'll become an idolater and
  • 00:23:26.521 --> 00:23:32.594
  • Then judgment will come.
  • 00:23:32.594 --> 00:23:35.096
  • Folks, what we see through the windows of the church is his
  • 00:23:35.096 --> 00:23:36.998
  • Judgment 'cause of our hearts, but we're changing.
  • 00:23:36.998 --> 00:23:42.204
  • We're changing, we're learning to trust in
  • 00:23:42.204 --> 00:23:43.772
  • The lord in some new ways.
  • 00:23:43.772 --> 00:23:45.106
  • We've trusted in too many other things.
  • 00:23:45.106 --> 00:23:46.875
  • What we trusted in was almost indistinguishable from the
  • 00:23:46.875 --> 00:23:49.377
  • Secular friends we've had.
  • 00:23:49.377 --> 00:23:52.414
  • We've taken coaching from them on how to secure our futures.
  • 00:23:52.414 --> 00:23:56.318
  • Our dreams have been almost--you could overlay them,
  • 00:23:56.318 --> 00:24:01.790
  • But god is helping us.
  • 00:24:01.790 --> 00:24:05.026
  • How many of you will be willing to offload some
  • 00:24:05.026 --> 00:24:06.361
  • Fear and anxiety tonight?
  • 00:24:06.361 --> 00:24:08.997
  • All right, why don't you stand. i'm done.
  • 00:24:08.997 --> 00:24:17.005
  • The invitation in the new testament is to cast all your
  • 00:24:17.005 --> 00:24:19.074
  • Anxiety on the lord 'cause he cares for you.
  • 00:24:19.074 --> 00:24:24.646
  • Years ago, we did a sermon and i had everybody wad up their
  • 00:24:24.646 --> 00:24:26.982
  • Outline, write down onto the things they were most worried
  • 00:24:26.982 --> 00:24:30.752
  • About, and had them write--and then we wadded it up,
  • 00:24:30.752 --> 00:24:33.255
  • Then on the count of three they all threw it forward,
  • 00:24:33.255 --> 00:24:34.890
  • It was like a snow storm.
  • 00:24:34.890 --> 00:24:37.926
  • I'm not about to give you permission to throw things at me
  • 00:24:37.926 --> 00:24:39.594
  • Tonight, so--but with that same imagination,
  • 00:24:39.594 --> 00:24:43.198
  • Let's take those points of anxiety that you have.
  • 00:24:43.198 --> 00:24:44.933
  • What is it you're worried about?
  • 00:24:44.933 --> 00:24:46.268
  • What is it that gives you uncertainty?
  • 00:24:46.268 --> 00:24:47.602
  • What is it that makes you feel unstable?
  • 00:24:47.602 --> 00:24:49.704
  • What elicits fear? now, you have to decide.
  • 00:24:49.704 --> 00:24:53.241
  • Some of you, so much a part of you is like anger.
  • 00:24:53.241 --> 00:24:55.510
  • Some of you, anger is a part of your persona.
  • 00:24:55.510 --> 00:24:57.979
  • You like it. it's an intimidating force.
  • 00:24:57.979 --> 00:25:01.983
  • And some of you like to worry.
  • 00:25:01.983 --> 00:25:04.953
  • Everything to worry about, you get worried about it.
  • 00:25:04.953 --> 00:25:08.590
  • For some of you, anxiety is your default position,
  • 00:25:08.590 --> 00:25:12.260
  • And we've got to come to the lord and say, "lord, i'm sorry.
  • 00:25:12.260 --> 00:25:14.129
  • You said not to worry.
  • 00:25:14.129 --> 00:25:15.463
  • I'm going to give all that anxiety to you."
  • 00:25:15.463 --> 00:25:21.670
  • Destructive emotions don't leave and stay away.
  • 00:25:21.670 --> 00:25:24.039
  • They return. they'll knock.
  • 00:25:24.039 --> 00:25:27.375
  • "i offered that to the lord.
  • 00:25:27.375 --> 00:25:28.710
  • I'm not picking it back up again.
  • 00:25:28.710 --> 00:25:31.146
  • I remember you, i recognize you, but
  • 00:25:31.146 --> 00:25:33.348
  • No, no, you're not coming in.
  • 00:25:33.348 --> 00:25:34.683
  • I don't intend to have a meal with you."
  • 00:25:34.683 --> 00:25:38.820
  • You ready?
  • 00:25:38.820 --> 00:25:44.859
  • Why don't you just be-- just repeat a prayer after me?
  • 00:25:44.859 --> 00:25:47.395
  • "heavenly father, i thank you for the truth of your word,
  • 00:25:47.395 --> 00:25:53.635
  • And i repent tonight of any fear,
  • 00:25:53.635 --> 00:25:58.473
  • Of any anxiety, of any place i have given worry
  • 00:25:58.473 --> 00:26:03.445
  • Access to my life.
  • 00:26:03.445 --> 00:26:08.450
  • I choose a new path.
  • 00:26:08.450 --> 00:26:10.919
  • I want to put my trust in you.
  • 00:26:10.919 --> 00:26:14.389
  • I want to remember your faithfulness.
  • 00:26:14.389 --> 00:26:17.959
  • I will tell the stories of the faithfulness of god.
  • 00:26:17.959 --> 00:26:23.164
  • I will dwell on the things you have done for me.
  • 00:26:23.164 --> 00:26:27.936
  • I choose to rejoice in the god--my god and my creator,
  • 00:26:27.936 --> 00:26:35.276
  • That your power is greater than anything
  • 00:26:35.276 --> 00:26:38.913
  • That stands in opposition.
  • 00:26:38.913 --> 00:26:42.851
  • I praise you tonight for the revelation of yourself that
  • 00:26:42.851 --> 00:26:48.923
  • You've given to me that you're a god who provides,
  • 00:26:48.923 --> 00:26:54.195
  • That you're a god who heals, that you're the lord my banner,
  • 00:26:54.195 --> 00:26:59.868
  • That you're the lord my peace, that i stand in your strength
  • 00:26:59.868 --> 00:27:05.473
  • And in your authority, and i will triumph over every
  • 00:27:05.473 --> 00:27:10.011
  • Expression of evil in jesus's name.
  • 00:27:10.011 --> 00:27:15.216
  • Amen."
  • 00:27:15.216 --> 00:27:16.818
  • Hallelujah. give the lord a hand.
  • 00:27:16.818 --> 00:27:27.262
