  • You magnify the Lord.
  • 00:00:07.050 --> 00:00:08.290
  • Sometimes you have to shout it
  • 00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:10.290
  • out.
  • 00:00:10.290 --> 00:00:12.020
  • Sometimes you just have to pull
  • 00:00:12.020 --> 00:00:13.090
  • up an invisible magnifying glass
  • 00:00:13.090 --> 00:00:15.030
  • and just walk around and just
  • 00:00:15.030 --> 00:00:16.170

  • That's what I know.

  • I know that you're God and above
  • 00:00:23.130 --> 00:00:25.080

  • - female: Today on "The Basics
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:31.090
  • With Beth," Beth Jones continues
  • 00:00:31.090 --> 00:00:32.100
  • her message on what to do when
  • 00:00:32.100 --> 00:00:33.240
  • we experience doubt in this
  • 00:00:33.240 --> 00:00:34.290
  • faith adventure and how we can
  • 00:00:34.290 --> 00:00:36.120
  • avoid a long stay in doubtville.
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:37.270
  • [music]
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:44.260
  • - Beth: Let me tell you this
  • 00:01:00.080 --> 00:01:00.260
  • story, this is for you younger
  • 00:01:00.260 --> 00:01:02.090
  • ones in college, but this will
  • 00:01:02.090 --> 00:01:03.170
  • help some of you.
  • 00:01:03.170 --> 00:01:04.080
  • The parents, they will help you
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:05.170
  • too since you're paying for it.
  • 00:01:05.170 --> 00:01:08.000
  • So, I was a student at Western.
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.270
  • I was in my sophomore year at
  • 00:01:11.140 --> 00:01:14.140
  • Western, and it began to come
  • 00:01:14.140 --> 00:01:16.280
  • into my heart to transfer to
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:19.260
  • Boston University.
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:20.280
  • I had a friend at Harvard at the
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:22.080
  • time and a friend at Boston
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:23.130
  • College, had gone to see them a
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:25.090
  • number of times and really loved
  • 00:01:25.090 --> 00:01:26.190
  • Boston.
  • 00:01:26.190 --> 00:01:27.090
  • It's a cool town.
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:28.160
  • And so, it was in my heart to
  • 00:01:28.160 --> 00:01:30.100
  • transfer to Boston University,
  • 00:01:30.100 --> 00:01:32.220
  • which was crazy.
  • 00:01:32.220 --> 00:01:33.250
  • That was a crazy thought because
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:35.080
  • my dad was a barber, my mom at
  • 00:01:35.080 --> 00:01:36.280
  • the time, you know, didn't have
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:38.250
  • tons of money, so to speak, so
  • 00:01:38.250 --> 00:01:40.120
  • it wasn't like we could afford
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:41.070
  • it.
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:41.270
  • And I'm not from the east coast.
  • 00:01:42.020 --> 00:01:45.020
  • I'm a mid westerner so it was a
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:47.120
  • crazy thought.
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:48.220
  • But then that got me excited
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:49.250
  • because I knew--I was fairly
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.130
  • young Christian at the time, and
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:52.230
  • I knew with God all things are
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:53.140
  • possible.
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:54.080
  • This'll be fun ooh, this will be
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:56.050
  • a faith adventure.
  • 00:01:56.050 --> 00:01:58.090
  • So, first you have to apply.
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:01:59.290
  • Now, meanwhile I'm at Western
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:02.030
  • and I was and RA in the dorm so
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:03.250
  • all my housing and food was paid
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:06.220
  • for 'cause being an RA, they
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:07.240
  • cover that.
  • 00:02:07.240 --> 00:02:08.180
  • So, all I was paying here was
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:09.250
  • instate tuition at Western and
  • 00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:12.220
  • no room and board.
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:14.060
  • To transfer to Boston
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:15.100
  • University, it was a private
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.210
  • school.
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:17.110
  • I'd have tuition that was about
  • 00:02:17.110 --> 00:02:18.150
  • three times as much, plus room
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:20.030
  • and board.
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:21.200
  • So, this is gonna be a big faith
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:23.000
  • adventure, but it was in my
  • 00:02:23.000 --> 00:02:24.260
  • heart to do it.
  • 00:02:24.260 --> 00:02:26.160
  • And I spent time in prayerville
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:28.010
  • and in promiseville, and I had a
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:29.110
  • number of different Scriptures.
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:30.100
  • I really felt God was in it.
  • 00:02:30.100 --> 00:02:32.270
  • So, I applied.
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:34.020
  • Well, lo and behold, I got
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:34.250
  • accepted, praise the Lord.
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:36.120
  • So, then I wanted to--this is
  • 00:02:36.120 --> 00:02:38.260
  • funny, I wanted to transfer in
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:40.240
  • the middle of my junior year,
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:43.130
  • the complete worst time to
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:44.150
  • transfer to a new school, and I
  • 00:02:44.150 --> 00:02:46.230
  • wanted to change my major from
  • 00:02:46.230 --> 00:02:48.270
  • biology, because previously I
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.150
  • thought I wanted to be a dentist
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:51.250
  • but now I felt God called me to
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:52.270
  • the ministry and I wanted to
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:53.260
  • change it to communications.
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:55.200
  • So, I want to transfer to a
  • 00:02:55.200 --> 00:02:56.280
  • school with out-of-state
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:58.160
  • tuition, and I want to change my
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:03:00.270
  • major in the middle of my junior
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:03.170
  • year, and I want to still
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:05.220
  • graduate in four years and not
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:07.290
  • lose any credits in the
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:09.020
  • transfer.
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:09.220
  • It is insane, but you know what?
  • 00:03:14.090 --> 00:03:16.120
  • With God all things are
  • 00:03:16.120 --> 00:03:17.040
  • possible.
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:18.190
  • So I applied, got in, like I
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:20.070
  • told you.
  • 00:03:20.070 --> 00:03:20.280
  • And then I applied for financial
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.080
  • aid because now oh also, I want
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:23.280
  • to pay less out of pocket than I
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:27.200
  • would have paid had I stayed at
  • 00:03:27.200 --> 00:03:28.290
  • Western.
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:29.190
  • You might as well put it out
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:32.160
  • there.
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:33.060
  • You might as go on a faith
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:36.010
  • adventure, y'all.
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:37.000
  • You might as well say, "Okay
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:38.040
  • God, well, let's just put this
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:39.060
  • thing to the test then.
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:40.230
  • Let's just go on a faith
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:41.230
  • adventure."
  • 00:03:41.230 --> 00:03:43.180
  • So, I said, "Okay Lord, here's
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:44.190
  • all the thing I'm gonna believe
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:45.160
  • you for."
  • 00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:46.080
  • All these things had the list,
  • 00:03:46.080 --> 00:03:47.100
  • right?
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:48.160
  • So applied for financial aid.
  • 00:03:48.160 --> 00:03:49.280
  • All right, I'm gonna transfer in
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:51.090
  • the middle of my junior year.
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:54.000
  • Applied for financial aid, now
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:55.120
  • it's like September and I'm
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:56.280
  • gonna move to Boston in January,
  • 00:03:56.280 --> 00:03:59.240
  • like December right after
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:00.210
  • Christmas.
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:01.120
  • September I call the school,
  • 00:04:01.120 --> 00:04:03.020
  • "Hey, I applied, you know, I've
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:04.110
  • been accepted.
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:05.010
  • I'm just waiting to her, did I
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:05.230
  • get the financial aid?"
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:06.220
  • Because if I have the financial
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:08.210
  • aid, then I quit my job in the
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:10.140
  • dorms.
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.040
  • Now, at this point I was the
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:11.250
  • assistant director of Henry
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:13.270
  • Hall, which is a dorm on campus.
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:16.180
  • So, they're paying me free room
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:18.140
  • and board plus I'm getting a
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:19.250
  • stipend, but I've gotta quit
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:21.110
  • that job so they can hire
  • 00:04:21.110 --> 00:04:22.080
  • somebody else.
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:23.250
  • "Hey, did I get the financial
  • 00:04:23.250 --> 00:04:24.290
  • aid?
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:25.190
  • Did I get the grants and
  • 00:04:25.190 --> 00:04:26.170
  • scholarships?"
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:27.070
  • 'Cause that's what I was going
  • 00:04:27.070 --> 00:04:27.290
  • for, just minimal loans, grants
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:29.140
  • and scholarships.
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:30.190
  • "Did it come through?"
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:31.120
  • And they said, "Oh, you know
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:32.220
  • what?
  • 00:04:32.220 --> 00:04:33.120
  • The board hasn't met yet, but
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:34.020
  • we'll get back to you.
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:34.250
  • We're gonna, you know, run
  • 00:04:34.250 --> 00:04:35.180
  • everything through but just so
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:36.140

  • times the scholarships and
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.030
  • grants are gone, but we'll see

  • We'll be in touch.
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:43.040
  • Okay bye."
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:45.150
  • That was September.
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:46.070
  • I called back end of September,
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:48.150
  • "Hey, have you heard anything?"
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:50.260
  • "Nope, the board hasn't met but
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.000
  • you know we'll keep you in
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:52.200
  • mind," Click.

  • November.
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:01.240
  • "Hey, this is Beth, hey Julie,

  • what's up?"
  • 00:05:03.020 --> 00:05:03.230
  • And here's the thing, now I've
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:10.220
  • gotta like not enroll for
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:12.120
  • classes the next term, quit my

  • job, move home at Christmas, and
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:17.100
  • I still don't know if I have
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.040
  • financial aid.
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:19.030

  • been to prayerville and
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:21.130
  • promiseville, and I was having
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:23.030
  • all kind of doubts like holy
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:24.160
  • smokes, you're about to ruin
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:25.190
  • your whole life.
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.060
  • What are you doing?
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.190
  • This is so stupid.
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:29.210
  • Who do you think you are?
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.150
  • Your dad's a barber, you can't
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:32.060
  • afford to go to a private east
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:34.220
  • coast school.
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:35.170
  • This is ridiculous.
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.210
  • You need to just calm down, just
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:38.240
  • But here was my confession, I
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:44.010
  • said this all the time.
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:45.000
  • God is bigger than the BU
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:47.130
  • computer system.
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:48.210
  • Now, whether or not they were
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:49.160
  • gonna run me through a computer
  • 00:05:49.160 --> 00:05:50.130
  • system, I don't know but in my
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:51.140
  • mind, they were.
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:52.180
  • The board was the computer
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:54.000
  • system.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:55.120
  • I said all the time, God is
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:56.170
  • bigger than the BU computer
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:57.250
  • system.
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:58.160
  • In worst scenario, I'll be a
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:05:59.220
  • cashier at K-mart.
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:00.250
  • That was like my little
  • 00:06:00.250 --> 00:06:01.150
  • confession.
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:03.120
  • I didn't believe the second
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:04.040
  • half, but I just said it.
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:06.250
  • And God bless all your cashiers
  • 00:06:07.130 --> 00:06:10.130
  • at K-mart, that takes a grace,
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.280
  • let me just say.
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:12.180
  • So, that was my confession,
  • 00:06:12.180 --> 00:06:14.290
  • God's bigger than the BU
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:16.010
  • computer system.
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.080
  • Well anyways, long story short,
  • 00:06:17.080 --> 00:06:18.130
  • Christmas break comes, I move
  • 00:06:18.130 --> 00:06:19.210
  • out of the dorms.
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:20.250
  • I'm moving home.
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:21.220
  • "Hey Julie, hope you had a good
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:28.020
  • Christmas, what'd you get?
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:30.030
  • This is Beth.
  • 00:06:30.030 --> 00:06:30.240
  • I'm just wondering, has anything
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:32.220
  • come through?
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:34.150
  • I moved out of the dorm here,
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:35.190
  • just FYI."
  • 00:06:35.190 --> 00:06:37.220
  • She goes, "You know what?
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:38.120
  • They're all on Christmas break,
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:41.070
  • but we will let you know."
  • 00:06:41.070 --> 00:06:43.120
  • Well, I hope so and I hope soon.
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:46.080
  • Like, one week, no actually it
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:47.180
  • was about two or threes day
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:48.130
  • before, I need to go back to my
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:49.230
  • journals, but anyways, it was
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:50.240
  • within days I called 'cause I'm
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:52.260
  • gonna ride back with my friend
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:54.060
  • Michelle who is going to Boston
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:55.120
  • College.
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:06:56.020
  • I'm like, "Hey, we're packing
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:57.220
  • the car, I'm coming to Boston,
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:07:00.200
  • just wondered, is there any
  • 00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:02.180
  • money, and is this gonna be paid
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:03.280
  • for, and did I get any
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:04.230
  • scholarships or grants?"
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:05.200
  • And I called like two or three
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:06.150
  • days before and they said, "Hey,
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:08.280
  • everybody's back from the
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:09.240
  • holidays, the board met, you got
  • 00:07:09.240 --> 00:07:11.110
  • everything.
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.010
  • You got everything you asked
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:15.090
  • for."
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:16.000
  • Now, you have to understand from
  • 00:07:16.000 --> 00:07:17.150
  • September to December, I was
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:20.040
  • battling it out in doubtville.
  • 00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:21.290
  • It was a battle in doubtville
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:26.110
  • but what the cool thing was is
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:27.190
  • with God all things are
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:28.130
  • possible.
  • 00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:29.040
  • God is bigger.
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:30.220
  • He himself is bigger than the
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:35.070
  • things coming against you.
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:37.040
  • I ended up transferring in the
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:38.130
  • middle of my junior year,
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:39.190
  • switched majors from biology to
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:41.110
  • communications, graduated in
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:43.180
  • four years, all my credits
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:45.140
  • transferred, paid less out of
  • 00:07:45.140 --> 00:07:47.270
  • pocket at the end of the day
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:50.030
  • than I would have paid had I
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:51.040
  • stayed here and finished at
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.040
  • Western, and Western is a great
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:53.110
  • school, by the way.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:55.110
  • What is that?
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.100
  • What is that?
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:57.230
  • That is an X marks the spot
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:08:00.100
  • faith adventure to the land of
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:02.080
  • God's thumbprint?
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:03.160
  • How does that happen?
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:04.110
  • Because with God, all things are
  • 00:08:04.110 --> 00:08:05.240
  • possible.
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:07.220
  • So, what about you?
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:08.280
  • What are you believing God for?
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:10.010
  • What seems ridiculous?
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:11.060
  • What seems like the enemy just
  • 00:08:11.060 --> 00:08:12.140
  • wants to minimize?
  • 00:08:12.140 --> 00:08:14.110
  • No, you can do it.
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:15.250
  • If there's anybody in here that
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:16.250
  • wants to go to med school, had
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:18.260
  • this little thought just came to
  • 00:08:18.260 --> 00:08:20.060
  • me.
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:20.260
  • If you want to go to med school,
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:22.070
  • yes you can do it.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:23.090
  • Yes, God is bigger than the
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:26.040
  • admissions board you're dealing
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:27.170
  • with.
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:28.070
  • You can go to med school in
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:31.190
  • Jesus's name.
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:34.040
  • Come on, God is bigger.
  • 00:08:34.040 --> 00:08:35.110
  • Lift up your eyes.
  • 00:08:35.110 --> 00:08:36.110
  • Get a bigger vision for your
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:37.120
  • life.
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:38.020
  • Get a bigger world.
  • 00:08:38.020 --> 00:08:39.020
  • God almighty himself.
  • 00:08:39.220 --> 00:08:42.220
  • Doubt minimizes, faith
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:44.020
  • magnifies.
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:44.220
  • Number two, doubt mocks, faith
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:47.060
  • talks.
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:47.260
  • "So, it happened," chapter 4,
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:49.230
  • verse 1, "When Sanballat heard
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:53.070
  • that we were rebuilding the
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:54.090
  • wall, he was furious and very
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:56.070
  • indignant, and mocked the Jews.
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:58.290
  • And he spoke before his brethren
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:00.120
  • and the army of Samaria, and
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:01.210
  • said, 'What are these feeble
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:03.070
  • Jews doing?
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:03.290
  • Will they fortify themselves?
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:05.260
  • Will they offer sacrifices?
  • 00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:07.250
  • Will they complete it in a day?
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:09.160
  • Will they revive the stones from
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:10.290
  • the heaps of rubbish-stones
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.140
  • that are burned?'
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:13.160
  • Now Tobiah the Ammonite
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:15.100
  • was beside him, and he
  • 00:09:15.100 --> 00:09:16.080
  • said, 'Whatever they build, even
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:17.190
  • if a fox goes up on it, he'll
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:19.080
  • break-down their stone wall."
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:20.200
  • Just underestimates totally,
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:23.280
  • mocks, laughs, scorns,
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:26.180
  • underestimates.
  • 00:09:26.180 --> 00:09:27.160
  • It's a lot like minimizing, it's
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:28.260
  • just the next level.
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:31.110
  • So, Nehemiah continues on his
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:33.070
  • faith adventure just like you
  • 00:09:33.070 --> 00:09:34.120
  • will.
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:35.060
  • But don't be surprised if
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:37.040
  • there's another thug attack from
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:39.240
  • doubtville to mock you, to
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:41.290
  • laugh, to underestimate.
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:43.220
  • Well, you didn't grow up in that
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:46.110
  • kind of a home.
  • 00:09:46.110 --> 00:09:47.280
  • You didn't live on that side of
  • 00:09:47.280 --> 00:09:49.020
  • the tracks.
  • 00:09:49.020 --> 00:09:50.270
  • Just knock it off, back it down.
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:54.230
  • Yet, the devil works so hard at
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:56.270
  • intimidating people.
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:02.280
  • Hey, if not you then who?
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:07.040
  • It's you, you can do it, believe
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:13.050
  • it.
  • 00:10:13.050 --> 00:10:13.290
  • God brought you to church today
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:15.140
  • to help you escape from
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:16.100
  • doubtville.
  • 00:10:16.100 --> 00:10:17.010
  • If not you than who?
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:17.250
  • It's you, you can do it.
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:20.140
  • You can be and you can do
  • 00:10:20.140 --> 00:10:21.150
  • everything that God puts in your
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:22.250
  • heart in prayerville and in
  • 00:10:22.250 --> 00:10:24.020
  • promiseville.
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:25.240
  • In this particular story, just
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:27.090
  • what do we do?
  • 00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:28.050
  • Well, we talk.
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:29.040
  • What kind of talk?
  • 00:10:29.040 --> 00:10:29.240
  • Well, you talk faith.
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:31.140
  • The enemy mocks, you talk.
  • 00:10:31.140 --> 00:10:32.200
  • The enemy will mock you, but you
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:34.040
  • talk faith.
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:35.100
  • And then you can do what
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:37.090
  • Nehemiah did you know that
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:38.200
  • little saying back in the day,
  • 00:10:38.200 --> 00:10:40.010
  • "I'm Teflon, you're glue,
  • 00:10:40.010 --> 00:10:41.100
  • whatever you throw at me bounces
  • 00:10:41.100 --> 00:10:42.250
  • off me and sticks on you"?
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:44.230
  • You know, you can have a
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:47.100
  • Teflonish sort of conversation
  • 00:10:47.100 --> 00:10:49.180
  • with the enemy.
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.280
  • "Whatever you think you're gonna

  • the next one.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.120
  • Go to Nehemiah 4, verse 6, doubt
  • 00:12:41.180 --> 00:12:44.180
  • confuses, faith refuses.
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.280
  • What'd they try to do in this
  • 00:12:46.280 --> 00:12:49.210
  • case?
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:50.070
  • They built the wall so they're
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:51.160
  • making good progress.
  • 00:12:51.160 --> 00:12:52.100
  • They're on the journey.
  • 00:12:52.100 --> 00:12:55.090
  • Verse 7, "Now it happened, when
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:12:56.260
  • Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs,
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:59.060
  • the Ammonites, and the
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:00.110
  • Ashdodites," so they grabbed a
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:01.150
  • few more friends, "heard that
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:03.070
  • the walls of Jerusalem were
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:04.040
  • being restored and the gaps were
  • 00:13:04.040 --> 00:13:05.150
  • beginning to be closed, they
  • 00:13:05.150 --> 00:13:06.130
  • became very angry, and conspired
  • 00:13:06.130 --> 00:13:08.190
  • together to come and attack
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:09.250
  • Jerusalem and to create
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:10.270
  • confusion."
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.270
  • So, now they're gonna try to
  • 00:13:12.270 --> 00:13:13.200
  • confuse, conspire.
  • 00:13:13.200 --> 00:13:15.150
  • Nevertheless, nevertheless, we
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:18.030
  • prayed to the Lord.
  • 00:13:18.030 --> 00:13:18.230
  • We reminded and revisited what
  • 00:13:18.230 --> 00:13:21.120
  • we knew.
  • 00:13:21.120 --> 00:13:22.060
  • "We prayed to the Lord our God,
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:23.160
  • and because of them we set a
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:24.230
  • watch against them day and
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:25.280

  • 00:13:27.030 --> 00:13:29.000
  • You can get tired, weary in well
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:30.200
  • doing sometimes, you know?
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:32.280
  • This is where you have to have
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:33.180
  • be mindful.
  • 00:13:33.180 --> 00:13:34.080
  • They're getting tired, getting
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:35.110
  • exhausted.
  • 00:13:35.110 --> 00:13:36.020
  • They're building this wall.
  • 00:13:36.020 --> 00:13:37.170
  • These enemies of doubt just keep
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:38.290
  • coming against them.
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:41.130
  • Verse 11, "Our adversaries said,
  • 00:13:41.130 --> 00:13:43.100
  • 'They'll never know nor see
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:44.110
  • anything, we'll come into their
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:45.100
  • midst and kill them and cause
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:46.160
  • the work to cease,' and so it
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:49.010
  • was, the Jews that came near,
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:50.270
  • told us what they had said."
  • 00:13:50.270 --> 00:13:52.260
  • Verse 13, "Therefore I
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:54.180
  • positioned men behind the lower
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:57.260
  • parts of the wall, at the
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:13:58.220
  • openings; I set people according
  • 00:13:58.220 --> 00:14:00.070
  • to their families, with their
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.050
  • swords, their spears, and their

  • bows.
  • 00:14:02.040 --> 00:14:02.250
  • And I looked, and arose and said
  • 00:14:02.250 --> 00:14:04.280
  • to the leaders, and everybody,
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.020
  • 'Don't be afraid of them.
  • 00:14:06.020 --> 00:14:08.130
  • Remember the Lord, great and
  • 00:14:08.130 --> 00:14:10.090
  • awesome, fight for your
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:11.130
  • brethren, your sons, your

  • and your houses.'"
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.120
  • What do we do?
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:15.180
  • Doubt tries to confuse, but
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:17.210
  • faith refuses.
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:18.180
  • How can faith refuse?
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:20.050
  • Faith refuses 'cause you
  • 00:14:20.050 --> 00:14:21.070
  • remember your why.
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:23.290

  • You remember your what.
  • 00:14:26.040 --> 00:14:27.210
  • He says, "Hey y'all, position

  • just put our head in the sand.
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:37.280
  • We have an adversary so we're
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:39.250
  • gonna pick up our bow, and our

  • salvation, or whatever it is.
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:47.220

  • why are we doing this?
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:11.130
  • Why are we on this faith

  • adventure?
  • 00:15:12.100 --> 00:15:13.010
  • Do you know how many times we
  • 00:15:13.010 --> 00:15:13.240
  • Many, many.
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:20.260
  • Anytime it's difficult it's
  • 00:15:20.260 --> 00:15:21.290
  • like, "Okay, we're out of here."
  • 00:15:21.290 --> 00:15:23.100
  • We wanted to quit a lot of
  • 00:15:23.100 --> 00:15:25.150
  • times, just like you wanted to
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:26.130
  • quit.
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:27.030
  • You want to quit your job.

  • You want to quit being a parent.
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:30.200
  • You want to quit working.
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:31.100
  • You want to quit paying bills.
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:32.140
  • You just want to quit but then
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:34.200
  • you have to stop and remember

  • why.
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:37.210
  • I refuse to be confused because
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:41.100
  • I'm remembering why, but this is
  • 00:15:41.100 --> 00:15:43.210
  • about the greater picture.
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:45.110

  • your why.
  • 00:15:51.280 --> 00:15:53.070

  • Nehemiah 6, doubt counterfeits,

  • "It happened," verse 1, "when

  • So, mission accomplished.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:11.210
  • So far we rebuilt the wall.
  • 00:16:11.210 --> 00:16:13.280
  • "There were no breaks left in it

  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.170
  • Well, that should have been a
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:25.070
  • sign right there, oh no.
  • 00:16:25.070 --> 00:16:26.230
  • "But they thought to do me harm.
  • 00:16:26.250 --> 00:16:29.250
  • So I sent messengers to them,
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:31.030
  • saying, 'I'm doing a great work,
  • 00:16:31.030 --> 00:16:32.130
  • so that I cannot come down.
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:33.040
  • Why should the work cease while
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:34.160
  • Verse 4, "But they sent me this
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:40.120
  • message four times, and I
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:41.150
  • answered them every time the
  • 00:16:41.150 --> 00:16:42.130
  • same way.
  • 00:16:42.130 --> 00:16:43.040
  • Then Sanballat sent his servant
  • 00:16:43.040 --> 00:16:44.080
  • to me the fifth time, with an
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:45.230
  • open letter in his hand and
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:46.280
  • said, it is written and reported
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:49.210
  • among the nations, and Geshem
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:52.010
  • says, that you Jews want to
  • 00:16:52.010 --> 00:16:53.100
  • rebel; therefore, according to
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:54.280
  • these rumors, you are rebuilding
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:57.040
  • the wall, so that you can be
  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:16:58.110
  • their king.
  • 00:16:58.110 --> 00:16:59.070
  • And you have also appointed
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:00.070
  • people to proclaim that there is
  • 00:17:00.070 --> 00:17:02.160
  • a king in Judah!
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:03.280
  • And so now we are going to
  • 00:17:03.280 --> 00:17:05.230
  • report all of this to the king."
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.250
  • "So, you better come and meet
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:09.080
  • with us."
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:10.110
  • "I sent him a letter and said,
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:11.040
  • 'No such things as what you are
  • 00:17:11.040 --> 00:17:12.160
  • saying are being done, but you
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:14.090
  • invent them in your own heart.'
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.170
  • For they all were trying to make
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:17.010
  • us afraid."
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:18.050
  • But at the very end, verse 12,
  • 00:17:18.050 --> 00:17:20.230
  • Nehemiah said, "Then I perceived
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:22.200
  • that God had not sent him at
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:23.230
  • all, but that he pronounced this
  • 00:17:23.230 --> 00:17:25.060
  • prophecy against me because they
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:26.190
  • wanted to make us afraid."
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:28.260
  • So, what happens in this
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:30.010
  • particular section of
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:32.220
  • doubtville, this thug?
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:34.080
  • They come with counterfeits and
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:36.070
  • this is where you have to have
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:37.040
  • spiritual discernment.
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:38.020
  • He was able to perceive and
  • 00:17:38.020 --> 00:17:39.110
  • recognize some things.
  • 00:17:39.110 --> 00:17:41.150
  • Not everybody is gonna be
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:43.060
  • excited about your faith
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:44.040
  • journey.
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:45.280
  • And some people are gonna just
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:47.040
  • be deceptive, manipulative that
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:50.210
  • a counterfeit situation.
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.160
  • "Oh yeah, come meet with us.
  • 00:17:52.160 --> 00:17:53.170
  • We want to see if we can work
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:55.110
  • this out."
  • 00:17:55.110 --> 00:17:56.010
  • They had no intention of working
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:57.120
  • this out, but they wanted to get
  • 00:17:57.120 --> 00:17:58.240
  • him in the temple and lock the
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:17:59.260
  • doors and kill him.
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:01.140
  • But the Lord gave him a
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:02.040
  • heads-up.
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:02.240
  • So, thank God for the Holy
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:03.140
  • Spirit.
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:04.180
  • As you're traveling your faith
  • 00:18:04.180 --> 00:18:06.220
  • journey, listen, you just have
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.000
  • to have discernment and go,
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:08.270
  • "Okay Lord, I'm in this meeting
  • 00:18:08.270 --> 00:18:10.030
  • with these people and they're
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:10.250
  • saying this.
  • 00:18:10.250 --> 00:18:12.020
  • Lord, I just met with the doctor
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:13.120
  • and they said this.
  • 00:18:13.120 --> 00:18:14.140
  • Lord, I just met with my
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:15.090
  • accountant and they said this.
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:17.050
  • We just met with the city
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:18.040
  • planners and they said this.
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:19.220
  • Lord, we just met with all the
  • 00:18:19.220 --> 00:18:21.130
  • different scenarios here and
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:22.190
  • we've heard lots of things so
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:24.080
  • Holy Spirit, give us
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:25.030
  • discernment.
  • 00:18:25.030 --> 00:18:26.080
  • Help us to perceive.
  • 00:18:26.080 --> 00:18:27.020
  • What's really going on and what
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:29.000
  • is it we are to do?"
  • 00:18:29.000 --> 00:18:31.220
  • In this case, they
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:32.140
  • counterpunched with faith and I
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:34.220
  • love it.
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:35.130
  • This is what I love.
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:36.040
  • They counterpunch either with
  • 00:18:36.040 --> 00:18:38.090
  • loud faith or silent faith.
  • 00:18:38.090 --> 00:18:40.190
  • Nehemiah's like, "Hey listen, I
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:42.180
  • really don't have time.
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:43.240
  • I'm doing some important work
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:45.080
  • here and to take time away from
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:47.210
  • this and to go to a nickel dime
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.170
  • meeting with you, I don't have
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.010
  • time for it."
  • 00:18:51.010 --> 00:18:52.130
  • Well, you know that made him
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:53.030
  • happy.
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:53.230
  • I mean, sometimes you have to
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:56.000
  • have a little attitude about
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:56.250
  • thing.
  • 00:18:56.250 --> 00:18:57.150
  • No, what you're called to do is
  • 00:18:57.150 --> 00:18:58.200
  • important.
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:00.170
  • What God has put in your heart
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:01.180
  • to do is important and the enemy
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:03.010
  • will try to distract you with
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:04.100
  • every shiny thing out there, and
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:06.130
  • the enemy will try to come
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:08.090
  • against you with all kinds of
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:09.120
  • misleading--well, you know, you
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:10.200
  • don't have to be that on fire
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:11.210
  • for the Lord.
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:12.110
  • I mean, I get it.
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:13.110
  • Some of those people are crazy
  • 00:19:13.110 --> 00:19:14.220
  • over there, but you don't need
  • 00:19:14.220 --> 00:19:15.230
  • to be that on fire.
  • 00:19:15.230 --> 00:19:17.040
  • You can still be very dignified
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:20.290
  • and compromise a little bit over
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:22.170
  • here and it's all good.
  • 00:19:22.170 --> 00:19:24.140
  • You have to recognize that as a
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:26.130
  • trap from doubtville.
  • 00:19:26.130 --> 00:19:29.020
  • The thing the enemy is working
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:30.070
  • overtime to steal from the
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:31.160
  • church, I believe these days, is
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:34.000
  • the Word.
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:35.170
  • That's why we've been so
  • 00:19:35.170 --> 00:19:36.130
  • passionate about getting the
  • 00:19:36.130 --> 00:19:38.030
  • basics of the Bible to the world
  • 00:19:38.060 --> 00:19:41.060
  • literally because there's such
  • 00:19:41.060 --> 00:19:43.100
  • an attack on the Word.
  • 00:19:43.100 --> 00:19:45.120
  • Everybody wants to go with
  • 00:19:45.120 --> 00:19:46.080
  • feelings and justice causes
  • 00:19:46.080 --> 00:19:48.090
  • which are awesome, but justice
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:50.120
  • causes and feelings don't trump
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:53.140
  • the Word.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:55.160
  • And all the people said?
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:58.100
  • Well, just a few people said,
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:19:59.140
  • all right.
  • 00:20:01.060 --> 00:20:04.060
  • You know, the Bible says--I
  • 00:20:04.060 --> 00:20:04.290
  • gotta close with this, but the
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:05.270
  • Bible says there's coming a
  • 00:20:05.270 --> 00:20:06.240
  • time, and I think it's
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:07.180
  • interesting that we're doing our
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:09.040
  • best in Jesus's name to go
  • 00:20:09.040 --> 00:20:11.130
  • against this flow, but there's
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:14.000
  • coming a time, the Bible says,
  • 00:20:14.000 --> 00:20:15.070
  • that there will be a famine of
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.150
  • the Word.
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:19.240
  • In history before there has been
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:22.070
  • a famine of the Word.
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:24.240
  • In other words, you didn't come
  • 00:20:24.240 --> 00:20:27.000
  • to church to hear three points
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:28.020
  • and a poem, I hope.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:30.280
  • I hope you came to church to
  • 00:20:30.280 --> 00:20:31.280
  • hear the Word.
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:33.120
  • God, what does your Word say?
  • 00:20:33.120 --> 00:20:34.130
  • Because when Jeff and Beth are
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:35.270
  • off the scene, when we're living
  • 00:20:35.270 --> 00:20:37.120
  • our life and facing battles and
  • 00:20:37.120 --> 00:20:38.210
  • we're in doubtville, and we've
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:39.220
  • got stuff going on with your
  • 00:20:39.220 --> 00:20:40.150
  • kids, and we've got stuff going
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:41.190
  • on with your marriage, and we
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:42.210
  • got big stuff going on in our
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:44.080
  • world, what we need is not their
  • 00:20:44.080 --> 00:20:46.020
  • cute stories.
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:47.100
  • What we need is the Word.
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:49.180
  • The Word's gonna be the anchor.
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:51.130
  • The Word's gonna be the thing
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:52.120
  • that puts us over.
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:54.100
  • Let's wrap it up with this.
  • 00:20:54.100 --> 00:20:55.060
  • Here's what happened, the good
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:56.020
  • news, they got to the land of
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:58.060
  • God's thumbprint.
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:20:59.000
  • Nehemiah 6, verse 15, "So it
  • 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.250
  • was, the wall was finished on
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:04.190
  • the twenty-fifth day.
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:05.200
  • And it happened, when all our
  • 00:21:05.200 --> 00:21:06.220
  • enemies heard of it, and all the
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:08.290
  • nations around us saw these
  • 00:21:08.290 --> 00:21:10.150
  • things, that they were very
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:11.100
  • disheartened in their own eyes;
  • 00:21:11.100 --> 00:21:13.030
  • for they perceived this work was
  • 00:21:13.030 --> 00:21:16.000
  • done by God."
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:16.230
  • What'd they perceive?
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:17.210
  • They perceived God's thumbprint
  • 00:21:18.080 --> 00:21:21.080
  • on our lives when the wall was
  • 00:21:21.080 --> 00:21:23.290
  • finished.
  • 00:21:23.290 --> 00:21:24.190
  • Listen, you will get there.
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:26.070
  • You will get there.
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:28.060
  • You will get to the land of
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:29.070
  • God's thumbprint.
  • 00:21:29.070 --> 00:21:30.170
  • Years ago, my mom tells a story.
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:32.030
  • Years ago, my mom was in church
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:33.140
  • in Lansing, and she was dealing
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:34.290
  • with a frozen shoulder, dealing
  • 00:21:34.290 --> 00:21:36.060
  • with a situation with her

  • shoulder.
  • 00:21:37.150 --> 00:21:38.050
  • And she was in church one day
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.080
  • and the pastor noticed she was
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:40.100
  • down, a little bit down in the
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:41.090
  • dumps.
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:42.000
  • He said, "Carol, what's the
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:43.030
  • matter?
  • 00:21:43.030 --> 00:21:43.230
  • You're always upbeat, you seem a
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:45.040
  • little down today.
  • 00:21:45.040 --> 00:21:45.240
  • What's going on?"
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:46.140
  • And she says, "Oh Pastor Dave,"
  • 00:21:46.140 --> 00:21:47.090
  • she goes, "you know, I just feel
  • 00:21:47.090 --> 00:21:48.190
  • like my shoulder's been
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:49.170
  • bothering me and I just feel
  • 00:21:49.170 --> 00:21:50.190
  • like I like I a need a dollar's
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:52.120
  • worth of faith but I only have a
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:55.060
  • So, then Pastor Dave said to the
  • 00:21:58.110 --> 00:21:59.210
  • congregation, "Well, Carol's got
  • 00:21:59.210 --> 00:22:01.150
  • a quarter and she seems to think
  • 00:22:01.150 --> 00:22:03.050
  • she needs a dollar's worth of
  • 00:22:03.050 --> 00:22:04.050
  • faith.
  • 00:22:04.050 --> 00:22:04.250
  • Anybody else in here got any
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:05.160
  • faith?"
  • 00:22:05.160 --> 00:22:06.140
  • So, one person piped up, "I've
  • 00:22:06.140 --> 00:22:07.140
  • got 10 cents."
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:08.070
  • Another piped up, "I got a
  • 00:22:08.070 --> 00:22:09.150
  • quarter."
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:10.050
  • Another person piped up, "I've
  • 00:22:10.050 --> 00:22:10.250
  • got 15 cents."
  • 00:22:10.250 --> 00:22:11.220
  • And the next thing you know,
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.080
  • they had a dollar's worth of
  • 00:22:14.080 --> 00:22:16.230
  • faith and they just stood and
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:18.010
  • prayed for mom's shoulder.
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:20.230
  • What was that?
  • 00:22:20.230 --> 00:22:21.130
  • Sometimes you're facing a
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:22.140

  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:26.240
  • facing a discouraging moment.
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:27.190
  • And you're like, "I know faith
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:28.240
  • pleases God, and I don't want to
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:30.040
  • be in doubtville.
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:31.040
  • And I know I feel like I need a

  • dollar's worth of faith and I
  • 00:22:32.220 --> 00:22:33.250
  • have a quarter."
  • 00:22:33.250 --> 00:22:35.010
  • Well, praise the Lord, there's
  • 00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:36.070
  • some faith-filled people in the

  • throw your 10 cents, your 25
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:48.060
