  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:15.130
  • HEALTHY, PASSIONATE, I LIKED TO CONSIDER MYSELF
  • 00:05:15.150 --> 00:05:18.040
  • SOMEWHAT THE LIFE OF THE PARTY,
  • 00:05:18.060 --> 00:05:19.290
  • TO DIAGNOSED WITH CROHN'S DISEASE, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS,

  • BEING TAKEN CARE OF LIKE AN INFANT.
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:34.000
  • I WENT TO COLLEGE, HAD TO MEDICALLY WITHDRAW,
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:36.100
  • DIDN'T EXPECT TO LIVE WITH MY PARENTS AGAIN
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:38.090
  • AND BE IN THIS SITUATION, THIS LIVING HELL,
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:42.240
  • THIS PRISON THAT WAS MY BODY.
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:44.280
  • I COULDN'T ESCAPE FROM IT,
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.130
  • I COULDN'T SLEEP MORE THAN 45 MINUTES,
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:48.280
  • I WOULD PLAY MY FAVORITE C.D AT THE TIME,
  • 00:05:49.000 --> 00:05:53.000
  • IT WAS STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN'S, ONE OF HIS EARLY ALBUMS,
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:56.060
  • AND THERE WAS A SONG CALLED "HIDING PLACE"
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:58.110
  • AND AS I WOULD TRY TO SLEEP, I'D PLAY IT ON LOOP.
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:01.080
  • I WANTED TO HIDE AND GET AWAY FROM THIS PRISON,
  • 00:06:01.100 --> 00:06:05.120
  • AND EVERY DAY WAS THE SAME, EVERY MINUTE WAS THE SAME,
  • 00:06:05.140 --> 00:06:08.110
  • THERE WAS NO REMISSION, AND I JUST WAS ABSOLUTELY MISERABLE.
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:13.150
  • THIS HEAVY LOAD WAS NEVER MINE TO BEAR
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:19.150
  • SO I CAST MY CARES UPON YOU, LORD
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:25.000
  • THIS WEARY ROAD I'VE TRAVELED FOR SO LONG
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:30.260
  • WOULD YOU TAKE MY HAND AND LEAD ME ON
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:35.270
  • YOU ARE WORKING ALL THINGS FOR MY GOOD
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:42.080
  • - BUT WHEN MY FRIEND WAS READING TO ME,
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:44.090
  • AND I WAS UNDERSTANDING THIS FAITH MESSAGE,
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:47.180
  • GOD SAID THAT I HAD TO HAVE FAITH.
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:49.050
  • HE TOLD ME, "HAVE FAITH."
  • 00:06:49.070 --> 00:06:50.060
  • AND I WAS ARGUING WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:06:50.080 --> 00:06:51.280
  • LIKE WHAT CAN I DO, I'M SICK, I CAN BARELY WALK.
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:55.070
  • THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I WOULD WALK TO THE BATHROOM,
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:57.180
  • AND MY MOM OR DAD WOULD FIND ME FACE DOWN,
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:07:00.210
  • I WOULD BLACK OUT DUE TO THE EXTREME ANEMIA,
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:03.250
  • GLASSES BROKEN, I WAS JUST AT THE EPITOME
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:09.180
  • OF BROKENNESS, NOTHING.
  • 00:07:09.200 --> 00:07:11.270
  • I WOULD READ PSALMS IN THE 40S AND FEEL LIKE DAVID,
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:16.030
  • I POURED OUT LIKE WATER, MY BONES ARE BROKEN,
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:18.180
  • AND HERE WAS GOD TELLING ME TO HAVE FAITH,
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:22.030
  • AND I ARGUED WITH HIM, "WHAT CAN I DO?"
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:25.060
  • 'CAUSE WE SAY, WELL LORD, WHEN I'M BETTER,
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:27.270
  • I'LL SHARE MY TESTIMONY, WHEN MY MONEY'S BACK
  • 00:07:27.290 --> 00:07:31.290
  • IN THE BANK ACCOUNT, I'LL TELL EVERYONE
  • 00:07:32.010 --> 00:07:32.250
  • THAT YOU'RE THE PROVIDER,
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:34.160
  • WHEN MY HUSBAND OR WIFE COMES BACK HOME,
  • 00:07:34.180 --> 00:07:36.270
  • I'LL TALK ABOUT YOU'RE THE REDEEMER OF RELATIONSHIPS,
  • 00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:41.100
  • BUT GOD SAID TO ME, FAITH IS NOT HINDSIGHT.
  • 00:07:41.120 --> 00:07:46.010
  • FAITH IS PROCLAIMING THE MOUNTAINTOP
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:47.270
  • WHEN YOU'RE LYING FACE DOWN, NAKED IN THE VALLEY.
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:50.270
  • GOD, I STILL BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:07:50.290 --> 00:07:55.030
  • YOU ARE WORKING ALL THINGS FOR MY GOOD
  • 00:07:55.050 --> 00:08:03.140
  • - SO I REALIZED THAT LIFE AND DEATH
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:06.130
  • IS IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE,
  • 00:08:06.150 --> 00:08:07.150
  • AND I'M GOING TO START SPEAKING LIFE,
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:09.080
  • AND THROUGH THE REST OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:11.240
  • IT HAS SERVED ME VERY WELL.
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:14.060
  • I DON'T ALWAYS DO IT, BUT WHEN I WAS IN
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:18.200
  • A CIRCUMSTANCE I DIDN'T WANT,
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:19.280
  • I STARTED SPEAKING TO MY SPIRIT AND MY BODY
  • 00:08:20.000 --> 00:08:23.110
  • TO GET IN TO ALIGNMENT, AND I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:08:23.130 --> 00:08:25.020
  • WHAT THIS ALL MEANT, I WAS ONLY 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:27.230
  • BUT WHAT I WAS DOING WAS I WAS SPEAKING THINGS
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:30.210
  • IN TO EXISTENCE THAT WEREN'T,
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:32.210
  • BUT I WAS ALSO ACKNOWLEDGING THAT IT'S NOT ALL BAD,
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:35.220
  • I'M NOT ALL SICK, I'M NOT ALL BROKEN,
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:37.290
  • AND I STARTED THANKING GOD FOR THE UNIMAGINABLE,
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:40.130
  • THE MOMENTS THAT I DIDN'T FEEL TERRIBLY SICK.
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:43.180
  • I STILL LOOKED LIKE A SKELETON, I STILL HAD A DIAGNOSIS,
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:47.120
  • BUT THOSE MINUETS TURNED IN TO HOURS,
  • 00:08:47.140 --> 00:08:50.040
  • THAT TURNED IN TO DAYS, THAT TURNED IN TO MONTHS,
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:52.070

  • AND I SEE IT BREAKING ON THE HORIZON
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:09:01.210
  • THE DARK OF NIGHT GIVING WAY TO THE DAWN
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:08.230
  • THE DAY IS COMING
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:12.000
  • AND THE HOPE IS RISING
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:15.180
  • YOUR JOY WILL BE MY STRENGTH
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:19.040
  • YOUR JOY WILL BE MY SONG
  • 00:09:19.060 --> 00:09:22.200
  • - I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AN AGGRESSIVE FORM OF CANCER
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:26.210
  • SIX YEARS AGO, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPED ME OUT
  • 00:09:26.230 --> 00:09:33.280
  • IS I KNEW THAT I WAS ALREADY HEALED.
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:38.080
  • I'M NOT TRYING TO GET HEALED, I'M ALREADY HEALED.
  • 00:09:38.100 --> 00:09:43.130
  • I'M NOT TRYING TO GET VICTORY, I GOT VICTORY,
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:49.150
  • AND I GO FROM VICTORY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:52.060
  • I'M THE HEALED PROTECTING MY HEALTH FROM THE CANCER
  • 00:09:52.080 --> 00:09:55.230
  • THAT'S TRYING TO KILL ME.
  • 00:09:55.250 --> 00:09:58.000
  • I HAD MORE FAITH IN WHAT JESUS HAD ALREADY DONE,
  • 00:09:58.020 --> 00:10:01.050
  • AND SO I BEGAN TO APPLY MY FAITH,
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:03.110

  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.290
  • I'M NOT LABORING TO TRY TO GET HEALED,
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:16.140

  • - AND WHAT DID YOU SEE IN REGARD TO COMMUNION?
  • 00:10:55.230 --> 00:11:00.040
  • - SO WHILE THIS BOOK WAS BEING WRITTEN EARLIER THIS YEAR,
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:04.170
  • OUR SON, JUSTIN, JUST STARTED FIRST GARDE IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:11:04.190 --> 00:11:07.240
  • SO ONE DAY THE SCHOOL CALLED ME AND SAID THAT HE HAD A FALL,
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:11.260
  • AND I WENT TO PICK HIM UP, AND I SAW WHERE HE FELL FROM,
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:15.260
  • IT WAS FROM A HIGH, QUITE A TALL PLACE, A HIGH PLACE,
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:20.120
  • AND HE HAD A BUMP ON HIS HEAD,
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:22.260
  • SO I DROVE HIM TO THE HOSPITAL, WE GOT IT CHECKED OUT,
  • 00:11:22.280 --> 00:11:25.240
  • YOU KNOW, HE WENT THROUGH A CT SCAN,
  • 00:11:25.260 --> 00:11:28.140
  • AND THEY FOUND THAT HE HAD A FRACTURE BEHIND HIS,
  • 00:11:28.160 --> 00:11:30.190
  • A FRACTURE IN HIS SKULL BEHIND HIS LEFT EAR,
  • 00:11:30.210 --> 00:11:33.160
  • AND HE HAD TO BE WARDED IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:36.210
  • SO HE WAS IN HOSPITAL, AND THE NEXT DAY,
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:38.240
  • HE STARTED THROWING UP, AND HAVING VERY BAD HEADACHES,
  • 00:11:38.260 --> 00:11:41.290
  • YOU KNOW, HE WAS IN PAIN, THERE WAS NO MEDICINE
  • 00:11:42.010 --> 00:11:44.130
  • THAT THE DOCTORS COULD GIVE
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:45.170
  • EXCEPT FOR JUST SIMPLE PAIN KILLERS,
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:47.170
  • AND THEN WE JUST STARTED TAKING THE HOLY COMMUNION.
  • 00:11:47.190 --> 00:11:50.070
  • ONE DAY WE TOOK LIKE THREE TO FOUR TIMES ACTUALLY,
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:54.110
  • AND I WOULD GIVE HIM A PAIN SCALE.
  • 00:11:54.130 --> 00:11:56.110
  • I WOULD SAY, "SO HOW'S THE PAIN NOW, ONE TO 10?"
  • 00:11:56.130 --> 00:11:59.040
  • HE WOULD SAY, "IT'S A NINE."
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:01.180
  • BEFORE WE TOOK THE COMMUNION.
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:03.100
  • THEN WE WILL SAY, "OKAY, LET'S TAKE THE COMMUNION."
  • 00:12:03.120 --> 00:12:05.190
  • AND THEN AFTER THE COMMUNION, WE THANKED THE LORD
  • 00:12:05.210 --> 00:12:08.220
  • THAT HE WAS HEALED, HE WAS WELL,
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:10.070
  • AND THEN I WOULD ASK HIM AGAIN, "HOW'S THE PAIN?"
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:13.040
  • AND AMAZINGLY, I MEAN, HE'S SEVEN, HE'S NOT
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:16.160
  • TOLD ME IT'S COME DOWN TO MAYBE A FIVE.
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:19.210
  • AND THAT'S THE SECOND DAY,
  • 00:12:19.230 --> 00:12:21.110
  • AND EACH TIME WE TOOK THE COMMUNION,
  • 00:12:21.130 --> 00:12:24.060
  • THE PAINS SCALE WENT DOWN LOWER AND LOWER.
  • 00:12:24.080 --> 00:12:26.220

  • AND THIS IS A DOUBLE FRACTURE, YOU KNOW,

  • AND HE WAS OUT OF HOSPITAL ACTUALLY
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:44.000
  • WITH HARDLY ANY PAIN.
  • 00:12:44.020 --> 00:12:46.010

  • -[ANNOUNCER] DAVID AND JASON BENHAM
  • 00:42:55.120 --> 00:42:56.070
  • ARE SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMEN.
  • 00:42:56.090 --> 00:42:57.290
  • -[ANNOUNCER] THE HOME & GARDEN TV NETWORK
  • 00:42:58.010 --> 00:42:59.080
  • WAS SCHEDULED TO DEBUT "FLIP IT FORWARD,"
  • 00:42:59.100 --> 00:43:01.290
  • A SHOW STARRING TWIN BROTHERS JASON AND DAVID BENHAM.
  • 00:43:02.010 --> 00:43:05.020
  • - BUT WHEN AN ADVOCACY GROUP COMPLAINED
  • 00:43:05.040 --> 00:43:06.270
  • THAT THE BROTHERS OPPOSED GAY MARRIAGE,
  • 00:43:06.290 --> 00:43:08.220
  • HGTV DROPPED THE PROJECT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:43:08.240 --> 00:43:12.000
  • - WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AGAINST THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:43:12.020 --> 00:43:14.120
  • BUT WE WILL NOT STAND-- - WELL I DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:43:14.140 --> 00:43:15.200
  • GET IN TO IT. - AND JUST,
  • 00:43:15.220 --> 00:43:17.010
  • THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN - I UNDERSTAND--
  • 00:43:17.030 --> 00:43:18.100
  • - THE PEOPLE AND AN AGENDA.
  • 00:43:18.120 --> 00:43:19.250
  • - YOU SEEM LIKE SUCH NICE PEOPLE,
  • 00:43:19.270 --> 00:43:21.280
  • HOW DID YOU CAUSE SUCH A FIRE STORM IN THE MEDIA?
  • 00:43:22.000 --> 00:43:26.060
  • - AND I SAID, WE NEED TO SEND HGTV AN EMAIL
  • 00:43:26.080 --> 00:43:28.170
  • KIND OF EXPLAINING OUR BELIEFS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:43:28.190 --> 00:43:30.120
  • 'CAUSE WE WERE VOCAL ABOUT MARRIAGE
  • 00:43:30.140 --> 00:43:31.290
  • BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN,
  • 00:43:32.010 --> 00:43:33.050
  • WE WERE VOCAL ABOUT LIFE BEGINNING AT CONCEPTION,
  • 00:43:33.070 --> 00:43:35.150
  • AND SO DAVID WROTE THIS EMAIL, HE SENT IT TO ME,
  • 00:43:35.170 --> 00:43:37.290
  • AND I READ IT, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE GREATEST EMAIL EVER.
  • 00:43:38.010 --> 00:43:40.120
  • YOU WANT TO KNOW BASICALLY WHAT THIS EMAIL SAID?
  • 00:43:40.140 --> 00:43:42.220
  • HGTV, THESE ARE OUR BELIEFS
  • 00:43:42.240 --> 00:43:44.250
  • AND WE'RE NEVER GOING TO BACK OFF OF 'EM,
  • 00:43:44.270 --> 00:43:46.060
  • HOWEVER, WHEN WE REPRESENT YOUR NETWORK IN PUBLIC,
  • 00:43:46.080 --> 00:43:49.230
  • ON TALK SHOWS, 'CAUSE THEY WERE GOING TO PUT US
  • 00:43:49.250 --> 00:43:51.100
  • ON A LOT OF TALK SHOWS, WE'RE GOING TO BE QUIET
  • 00:43:51.120 --> 00:43:53.120
  • ABOUT THOSE BELIEFS.
  • 00:43:53.140 --> 00:43:55.100
  • HE WROTE IT, SO DON'T JUDGE ME, MATT,
  • 00:43:55.120 --> 00:43:57.040
  • I SEE THAT EYE OF JUDGE. - YOU TOLD ME TO WRITE IT.
  • 00:43:57.060 --> 00:43:58.160
  • - NO LISTEN, HE WROTE. - POINTING YOUR FINGER AT ME.
  • 00:43:58.180 --> 00:44:01.020
  • - HE THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST EMAIL EVER, HE DID.
  • 00:44:01.040 --> 00:44:03.090
  • - I DID, I KNOW, BUT HE WROTE, AND I APPROVED IT,
  • 00:44:03.110 --> 00:44:04.290
  • AND HERE'S THE SCARIEST PART,
  • 00:44:05.010 --> 00:44:06.010
  • WE BOTH FELT THE PEACE OF GOD ON IT.
  • 00:44:06.030 --> 00:44:07.240
  • BUT IT WASN'T THE PEACE OF GOD, IT WAS A FALSE PEACE,
  • 00:44:07.260 --> 00:44:10.000
  • BECAUSE IN THAT MOMENT, WE WERE OPERATING
  • 00:44:10.020 --> 00:44:11.170
  • OUT OF A MAN-PLEASING SPIRIT, AND NOT A GOD-PLEASING SPIRIT.
  • 00:44:11.190 --> 00:44:14.210
  • WE WERE OPERATING OUT OF FEAR OF MAN,
  • 00:44:14.230 --> 00:44:16.080
  • AND NOT THE FEAR OF GOD.
  • 00:44:16.100 --> 00:44:17.160
  • WE PUT OUR FOCUS ON THAT PLATFORM WE DIDN'T
  • 00:44:17.180 --> 00:44:20.260
  • INSTEAD OF THE GOD WHO PUT IT THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:44:20.280 --> 00:44:23.150
  • AND THE MINUTE THAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:44:23.170 --> 00:44:24.240
  • YOU BEGIN TO OPERATE STRATEGICALLY IN THE MIND,
  • 00:44:24.260 --> 00:44:26.250
  • AND NO LONGER SPIRITUALLY IN THE HEART,
  • 00:44:26.270 --> 00:44:28.110
  • YOU'RE DEAF, BLIND, AND DUMB, YOU HAVE AN IDOL IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:44:28.130 --> 00:44:30.260
  • AND YOU'LL OPERATE OUT OF FEAR.
  • 00:44:30.280 --> 00:44:32.180
  • AND SO WE DECIDED THAT WE WERE GOING TO SEND IT
  • 00:44:32.200 --> 00:44:34.140
  • TO A SPIRITUAL MENTOR OF OURS BEFORE WE SENT IT TO HGTV,
  • 00:44:34.160 --> 00:44:37.180
  • AND WHEN WE DID, IN A MATTER OF ABOUT THREE MINUTES,
  • 00:44:37.200 --> 00:44:40.110
  • HE SENT A SCATHING EMAIL BACK
  • 00:44:40.130 --> 00:44:42.080
  • THAT SAID, "HOW DARE YOU BOYS WRITE AN EMAIL LIKE THIS?"
  • 00:44:42.100 --> 00:44:44.290
  • THIS ISN'T WHO YOU ARE, HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:44:45.010 --> 00:44:46.160
  • THAT YOU WEREN'T SET UP FOR A TIME JUST LIKE THIS.
  • 00:44:46.180 --> 00:44:48.250
  • YOU NEED TO DELETE THAT EMAIL,
  • 00:44:48.270 --> 00:44:50.080
  • AND YOU BOTH NEED TO GET ON YOUR KNEES AND REPENT.
  • 00:44:50.100 --> 00:44:52.190
  • - THAT'S NOT VERY CHRIST-LIKE. - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:44:52.210 --> 00:44:54.070
  • - BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:44:54.090 --> 00:44:55.220
  • FOR HIM, THAT'S A BOLDNESS WITH BROKENNESS FOR HIM
  • 00:44:55.240 --> 00:44:57.240
  • TO BE ABLE TO REBUKE US IN THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:44:57.260 --> 00:44:59.250
  • BUT WE GOT DOWN ON OUR KNEES, AND WE REPENTED,
  • 00:44:59.270 --> 00:45:01.210
  • AND WE LEARNED THEN, AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:45:01.230 --> 00:45:04.000
  • BOLDNESS APART FROM BROKENNESS MAKES A BULLY.
  • 00:45:04.020 --> 00:45:06.100
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT GOD WAS GOING TO GET US FIRED
  • 00:45:06.120 --> 00:45:08.150
  • IN FRONT OF A WATCHING WORLD WHERE WE'D HAVE TO STAND BOLD,
  • 00:45:08.170 --> 00:45:11.010
  • BUT FIRST, HE HAD TO BREAK US OF OUR SELF SUFFICIENCY.
  • 00:45:11.030 --> 00:45:13.100
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE THERE NOW.
  • 00:45:13.120 --> 00:45:15.100
  • AND WE WOULD SAY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:45:15.120 --> 00:45:16.120
  • DON'T OPERATE OUT OF FEAR OF MAN,
  • 00:45:16.140 --> 00:45:18.020
  • OPERATE OUT OF A FEAR OF GOD,
  • 00:45:18.040 --> 00:45:19.100
  • BUT GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES AND REPENT
  • 00:45:19.120 --> 00:45:20.220
  • OF ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE THAT MAY BE HOLDING YOU BACK
  • 00:45:20.240 --> 00:45:23.040
  • IN THAT MOMENT, AND THEN JUST OPERATE
  • 00:45:23.060 --> 00:45:26.030
  • IN A SPIRIT OF FAITHFULNESS AND BOLDNESS
  • 00:45:26.050 --> 00:45:27.280
  • AND JUST WATCH WHAT GOD DOES.
  • 00:45:28.000 --> 00:45:29.080
  • - WHAT I HEAR YOU SAYING TO US
  • 00:45:29.100 --> 00:45:30.250
  • IS DON'T TRY TO ESCAPE YOUR TROUBLES,
  • 00:45:30.270 --> 00:45:35.210
  • BUT LEAN IN TO THEM. - LEAN IN TO IT.
  • 00:45:35.230 --> 00:45:37.130
  • - LEAN IN TO THEM. - LEAN IN TO IT.
  • 00:45:37.150 --> 00:45:39.160
  • - AND SAY, "GOD, WHAT ARE YOU TELLING ME,
  • 00:45:39.180 --> 00:45:43.040
  • "WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING ME?"
  • 00:45:43.060 --> 00:45:44.170
  • CONSIDER IT ALL JOY IN MY BRETHREN.
  • 00:45:44.190 --> 00:45:47.100
  • -[T.D] YES, SIR.
  • 00:45:47.120 --> 00:45:48.260
  • - WHEN YOU FACE VARIOUS TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS.
  • 00:45:48.280 --> 00:45:51.040
  • - YES, AND I'LL BE HONEST, SOMEBODY SAID
  • 00:45:51.060 --> 00:45:55.040
  • THAT'S NOT EASY TO DO.
  • 00:45:55.060 --> 00:45:57.170
  • IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU DO FROM THE PLACE OF YOUR EMOTIONS,
  • 00:45:57.190 --> 00:46:01.270
  • IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU DO FROM THE PLACE OF YOUR TEACHING.
  • 00:46:01.290 --> 00:46:04.110
  • I WENT THROUGH A PERIOD IN MY LIFE
  • 00:46:04.130 --> 00:46:06.000
  • THAT I WAS JUST BEING CRUSHED, MY HEART WAS BROKEN,
  • 00:46:06.020 --> 00:46:08.160
  • I WAS WORRIED, IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST DISTRAUGHT MOMENTS
  • 00:46:08.180 --> 00:46:11.010
  • OF MY LIFE, AND I WAS LITERALLY CRYING WHEN I TOLD GOD THIS,
  • 00:46:11.030 --> 00:46:14.150
  • I SAID, "LORD, I HATE THIS, I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS,
  • 00:46:14.170 --> 00:46:20.140
  • "BUT I LOVE YOU, AND I KNOW YOU WILL NOT ALLOW ME
  • 00:46:20.160 --> 00:46:22.280
  • "TO GO THROUGH THIS IF IT WERE NOT FOR MY GOOD,
  • 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:26.250
  • "AND THOUGH TEARS WERE RUNNING DOWN MY FACE,
  • 00:46:26.270 --> 00:46:29.010
  • "AND I CAN NOT SEE MY WAY OUT,
  • 00:46:29.030 --> 00:46:31.040
  • "IF YOU SUFFERED ME TO BE BRUISED,
  • 00:46:31.060 --> 00:46:33.270
  • "IT IS ONLY TO MAKE ME BETTER.
  • 00:46:33.290 --> 00:46:36.180
  • "AND SO I TRUST YOU WHEN I CAN'T TRACE YOU."
  • 00:46:36.200 --> 00:46:39.210
  • BECAUSE HE THAT HAVE BEGAN A GOOD WORK IN ME.
  • 00:46:39.230 --> 00:46:43.010
  • -[MAX] WILL BRING IT TO CONCLUSION.
  • 00:46:43.030 --> 00:46:44.240
  • - SHALL BRING IT TO COMPLETION.
  • 00:46:44.260 --> 00:46:46.000
  • YOU CAN NOT CONVINCE ME. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDS]
  • 00:46:46.020 --> 00:46:48.200
  • SO WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE THINGS
  • 00:46:48.220 --> 00:46:56.010
  • THERE'S STILL CANCER AND THERE'S SO MUCH DISEASE
  • 00:46:56.030 --> 00:47:04.200
  • - YEAH, THAT SONG HONESTLY CAME FROM A CONVERSATION
  • 00:47:04.220 --> 00:47:07.100
  • THAT I HAD WITH SOMEONE WHO WASN'T A BELIEVER.
  • 00:47:07.120 --> 00:47:09.080
  • THEY ASKED ME A REALLY HARD QUESTION.
  • 00:47:09.100 --> 00:47:10.220
  • THEY SAID, "IF GOD IS SO GOOD, THEN WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?"
  • 00:47:10.240 --> 00:47:13.180
  • AND I THINK THAT QUESTION IS NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:47:13.200 --> 00:47:16.050
  • WHO DON'T BELIEVE.
  • 00:47:16.070 --> 00:47:17.200
  • THERE ARE THOSE OF US WHO LOVE GOD WITH OUR WHOLE HEARTS,
  • 00:47:17.220 --> 00:47:19.070
  • AND WE'RE LIKE, GOD IS GOOD, AND MY MOM HAS CANCER,
  • 00:47:19.090 --> 00:47:22.110
  • AND HOW DO THOSE TWO THINGS DWELL IN THE SAME SPACE.
  • 00:47:22.130 --> 00:47:24.280
  • AND ROMANS 8 ASKS THE EXACT SAME QUESTION.
  • 00:47:25.000 --> 00:47:27.020
  • IT SAYS, WHAT THEN SHALL WE SAY TO THESE THINGS?
  • 00:47:27.040 --> 00:47:29.010
  • IF GOD BEFORE US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?
  • 00:47:29.030 --> 00:47:32.020
  • WHO CAN BE AGAINST BE AGAINST ME
  • 00:47:32.040 --> 00:47:35.240
  • IF GOD IS WITH ME IF GOD IS WITH ME
  • 00:47:35.260 --> 00:47:38.280
  • WHOM SHALL IF FEAR WHOM SHALL I FEAR
  • 00:47:39.000 --> 00:47:42.280
  • AND IF NO ONE KNOWS ME IF NO ONE KNOWS ME
  • 00:47:43.000 --> 00:47:47.080
  • STILL HIS HEART ADORES ME HIS HEART ADORES ME
  • 00:47:47.100 --> 00:47:51.100
  • SO I AM SAVED I AM SAVED
  • 00:47:51.120 --> 00:47:54.120
  • I AM LOVED I AM LOVED
  • 00:47:54.140 --> 00:47:56.150
  • AND I AM HEALED
  • 00:47:56.170 --> 00:47:58.100
  • SING IT, IF GOD BEFORE ME GOD BEFORE ME
  • 00:47:58.120 --> 00:48:02.210
  • GOD, WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME
  • 00:48:02.230 --> 00:48:06.260
  • - I WANT TO JUST REAL QUICK, TALK ABOUT THAT DIFFICULTIES
  • 00:48:06.280 --> 00:48:10.160
  • AND YOU DO HAVE TO, YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND
  • 00:48:10.180 --> 00:48:13.290
  • THAT YOU'RE GOING TO LIFT YOUR EYES FROM YOUR PROBLEMS
  • 00:48:14.010 --> 00:48:16.040
  • AND REALLY BEGIN TO SET YOUR EYES ON THE PROMISES OF GOD,
  • 00:48:16.060 --> 00:48:19.100
  • BECAUSE IT'S THE PROMISES OF GOD
  • 00:48:19.120 --> 00:48:20.290
  • THAT ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH,
  • 00:48:21.010 --> 00:48:22.160
  • AND IT'S THE PROMISES OF GOD THAT ARE GOING
  • 00:48:22.180 --> 00:48:24.270
  • IT'S NOT JUST A POSITIVE MINDSET,
  • 00:48:24.290 --> 00:48:27.260
  • BUT IT'S KNOWING THAT THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE
  • 00:48:27.280 --> 00:48:30.180
  • IS FOR YOU, AND HE'S NOT AGAINST YOU,
  • 00:48:30.200 --> 00:48:32.220
  • AND THAT IF GOD BEFORE YA,
  • 00:48:32.240 --> 00:48:34.170
  • DOESN'T MATTER IF THE WHOLE WORLD IS AGAINST YOU,
  • 00:48:34.190 --> 00:48:36.200
  • AND SO IT'S NOT ACTUALLY WHERE YOU'VE BEEN,
  • 00:48:36.220 --> 00:48:39.070
  • BUT IT'S WHERE YOU'RE GOING,
  • 00:48:39.090 --> 00:48:40.200
  • AND THOSE ARE THE DECISIONS THAT YOU HAVE TO MAKE.
  • 00:48:40.220 --> 00:48:42.250
  • AND I REMEMBER ONE TIME MANY YEARS AGO,
  • 00:48:42.270 --> 00:48:45.280
  • I WAS GOING THROUGH THE MOST DEVASTATING CHALLENGE
  • 00:48:46.000 --> 00:48:48.130
  • IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, AND I WASN'T THINKING THE RIGHT THOUGHTS.
  • 00:48:48.150 --> 00:48:52.220
  • IT WAS SO DIFFICULT FOR ME, I FOUND MYSELF
  • 00:48:52.240 --> 00:48:54.290
  • NOT EVEN WANTING TO GO OUTSIDE,
  • 00:48:55.010 --> 00:48:56.170
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE MY HOUSE, IT WAS JUST SO DIFFICULT,
  • 00:48:56.190 --> 00:48:59.280
  • AND I JUST FELT MYSELF NOT BEING WHO I WAS,
  • 00:49:00.020 --> 00:49:03.210
  • AND IT WAS REALLY, IT WAS HORRIBLE FOR MY LIFE,
  • 00:49:03.230 --> 00:49:07.060
  • AND I REMEMBER SAYING, "THIS HAS GOT TO STOP."
  • 00:49:07.080 --> 00:49:09.230
  • AND I'LL NEVER FORGET, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:49:09.250 --> 00:49:11.080
  • GOD SAID, "I'M YOUR BANNER OF VICTORY."
  • 00:49:11.100 --> 00:49:14.020
  • AND IN THE SCRIPTURE, IT SAYS THAT HE'S OUR JEHOVAH-NISSI,
  • 00:49:14.040 --> 00:49:16.240
  • HE'S OUR BANNER OF VICTORY OVER OUR HEAD.
  • 00:49:16.260 --> 00:49:19.260
  • AND I REMEMBER THINKING, OKAY GOD,
  • 00:49:19.280 --> 00:49:21.180
  • THEN I'M GOING TO WEAR MY BANNER,
  • 00:49:21.200 --> 00:49:23.210
  • I'M GOING TO PUT IT OVER MY HEAD,
  • 00:49:23.230 --> 00:49:25.230
  • AND EVERYWHERE I GO, I AM GOING TO BELIEVE
  • 00:49:25.250 --> 00:49:28.250
  • THAT YOU ARE MY BANNER OF VICTORY AND THAT YOU ARE FOR ME.
  • 00:49:28.270 --> 00:49:31.160
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE WHOLE WORLD'S AGAINST ME,
  • 00:49:31.180 --> 00:49:33.200
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER IF MY DREAMS AREN'T COMING TRUE,
  • 00:49:33.220 --> 00:49:36.160
  • YOU ARE FOR ME.

  • SO WHOM SHALL I, SHALL I FEAR
  • 00:49:49.190 --> 00:49:54.110
  • AND IF NO ONE KNOWS ME
  • 00:49:54.130 --> 00:49:58.140

  • 00:50:08.210 --> 00:50:09.230
  • - GOD DID SOME AMAZING THINGS IN MY LIFE
  • 00:50:09.250 --> 00:50:12.000
  • IN THE MOST DIFFICULT TIMES OF MY LIFE,
  • 00:50:12.020 --> 00:50:15.140
  • AND I REALIZED THAT EVERYTHING DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT
  • 00:50:15.160 --> 00:50:17.270
  • BEFORE GOD IS DOING THAT NEW THING,
  • 00:50:17.290 --> 00:50:20.180
  • AND YOUR JOB AND MY JOB IS TO LOOK FOR THE NEW THING
  • 00:50:20.200 --> 00:50:23.290
  • THAT HE'S DOING.
  • 00:50:24.010 --> 00:50:25.060
  • NOT THE OLD THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU,
  • 00:50:25.080 --> 00:50:27.040
  • BUT THE NEW THING THAT GOD'S DOING RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:50:27.060 --> 00:50:29.220
  • AND I GREW, AND I FLOURISHED
  • 00:50:29.240 --> 00:50:33.160
  • WHEN I WORE THAT BANNER OF VICTORY,
  • 00:50:33.180 --> 00:50:35.110
  • AND WHEN I DREW A LINE IN THE SAND,
  • 00:50:35.130 --> 00:50:37.030
  • AND I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:50:37.050 --> 00:50:38.130
  • NO MORE AM I GOING TO DWELL ON MY CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:50:38.150 --> 00:50:42.120
  • BECAUSE GOD IS GOING TO GET ME THROUGH,
  • 00:50:42.140 --> 00:50:44.030
  • AND I'M GOING TO BE STRONGER THAN I HAVE EVER HAVE.
  • 00:50:44.050 --> 00:50:46.070
  • I WROTE MY VERY FIRST BOOK, I WROTE CHILDREN'S BOOKS,
  • 00:50:46.090 --> 00:50:49.210
  • I GREW EXPONENTIALLY IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:50:49.230 --> 00:50:53.090
  • I COULD HAVE GOTTEN STUCK, BUT I DIDN'T,
  • 00:50:53.110 --> 00:50:55.220
  • I WORE THAT BANNER OF VICTORY,
  • 00:50:55.240 --> 00:50:57.060
  • SO I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE OUT THERE
  • 00:50:57.080 --> 00:50:59.160
  • THAT'S HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME,
  • 00:50:59.180 --> 00:51:01.070
  • GOD IS DOING A NEW THING.
  • 00:51:01.090 --> 00:51:03.180
  • HE'S NOT GOING TO DO A NEW THING LATER
  • 00:51:03.200 --> 00:51:05.100
  • WHEN YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES ARE ALL REPAIRED
  • 00:51:05.120 --> 00:51:08.250
  • AND YOU'RE SITTING PRETTY.
  • 00:51:08.270 --> 00:51:10.070
  • NO, GOD IS GOING TO DO A NEW THING RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:51:10.090 --> 00:51:12.110
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO PERCEIVE IT, YOU GOT TO LOOK FOR IT,
  • 00:51:12.130 --> 00:51:15.080

  • 00:51:19.160 --> 00:51:23.070
