  • - Bil Cornelius: Maybe you
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.110
  • came in the doors today and
  • 00:00:01.110 --> 00:00:02.150
  • you're like, "Pastor, I mean,
  • 00:00:02.150 --> 00:00:03.190
  • you don't know the stuff
  • 00:00:03.190 --> 00:00:04.080
  • I've done this week.
  • 00:00:04.080 --> 00:00:04.250
  • You don't know the stuff
  • 00:00:04.250 --> 00:00:05.110
  • I'm still into.
  • 00:00:05.110 --> 00:00:06.040
  • And I don't know if I can stop."
  • 00:00:06.040 --> 00:00:07.050
  • I just want to tell you
  • 00:00:07.050 --> 00:00:08.050
  • right now God loves you
  • 00:00:08.050 --> 00:00:09.010
  • just like you are.
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:10.100
  • And you have not overblown
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:11.260
  • his love.
  • 00:00:11.260 --> 00:00:12.150
  • You cannot out-sin his coverage.
  • 00:00:12.150 --> 00:00:14.160
  • He loves you, he forgives you,
  • 00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:16.220
  • and let today be
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:17.180
  • a fresh start for you.
  • 00:00:17.180 --> 00:00:18.170
  • You are welcome here,
  • 00:00:18.170 --> 00:00:19.220
  • you are accepted.
  • 00:00:19.220 --> 00:00:21.010
  • Please experience
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:22.080
  • God's grace today.
  • 00:00:22.080 --> 00:00:24.110
  • - Bil: You are the church
  • 00:00:36.060 --> 00:00:37.190
  • - Bil: Welcome.
  • 00:00:42.030 --> 00:00:43.270
  • It's great to have you
  • 00:00:43.270 --> 00:00:45.040
  • here today.
  • 00:00:45.040 --> 00:00:45.230
  • Thanks so much for joining us.
  • 00:00:45.230 --> 00:00:47.020
  • Well, we've been in the middle
  • 00:00:47.020 --> 00:00:48.040
  • of a series on problem solving.
  • 00:00:48.040 --> 00:00:50.040
  • You know, we all face
  • 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:51.110
  • difficulties and problems in
  • 00:00:51.110 --> 00:00:52.230
  • our lives, and so maybe you're
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:54.000
  • in the middle of a problem
  • 00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:54.270
  • right now.
  • 00:00:54.270 --> 00:00:55.180
  • And I believe today will
  • 00:00:55.180 --> 00:00:56.180
  • be something that will help you
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:57.160
  • as you go through your problem.
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:00:58.230
  • You're going to discover today
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:00.030
  • the purpose in your problem,
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:01.180
  • that there actually
  • 00:01:01.180 --> 00:01:02.090
  • is a purpose behind it.
  • 00:01:02.090 --> 00:01:03.150
  • And the purpose is not just
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:04.190
  • to frustrate you.
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:05.080
  • The purpose is not to just
  • 00:01:05.080 --> 00:01:06.040
  • drive you crazy or, you know,
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:07.240
  • get you depressed.
  • 00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:08.180
  • It's not to do
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:09.070
  • any of those things.
  • 00:01:09.070 --> 00:01:10.060
  • But there is a purpose
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:11.070
  • in our problems.
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:12.100
  • We've been talking about David.
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.190
  • David, had one of the darkest
  • 00:01:13.190 --> 00:01:14.290
  • moments in his life, he came
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:16.280
  • home with all of his men from
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:18.100
  • war to only--only to find his
  • 00:01:18.100 --> 00:01:20.090
  • family had been stolen from him,
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:21.290
  • all his stuff had been stolen,
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:23.040
  • and they'd burned the town down.
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:24.030
  • And so,
  • 00:01:24.030 --> 00:01:24.260
  • he was in total desperation.
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:26.060
  • He called out to God.
  • 00:01:26.060 --> 00:01:27.120
  • God began to give him a plan
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:29.000
  • to solve his problem.
  • 00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:31.000
  • And one of the parts of that
  • 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:32.110
  • plan was he encouraged himself.
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:33.180
  • The next step was that he went
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:34.250
  • after the army that had taken
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:36.180
  • his family and all of his
  • 00:01:36.180 --> 00:01:38.170
  • men's families, and they were
  • 00:01:38.170 --> 00:01:40.030
  • now going to go get it all back.
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:42.080
  • Now, let's pick up in Scripture.
  • 00:01:42.080 --> 00:01:43.080
  • And I'm very excited about this
  • 00:01:43.080 --> 00:01:44.200
  • because I think you're going to
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:45.270
  • discover that there really is
  • 00:01:45.270 --> 00:01:47.000
  • a good purpose in your problem.
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:48.200
  • Before we jump into Scripture,
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.170
  • though, let's first go over our
  • 00:01:49.170 --> 00:01:50.190
  • mission statement as a church.
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:51.180
  • Our mission is to take as many
  • 00:01:51.180 --> 00:01:53.060
  • people to heaven as we can
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:54.130
  • before we die, period.
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.290
  • I know we keep bringing this up,
  • 00:01:56.290 --> 00:01:58.030
  • and I know you're thinking,
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:01:59.020
  • "Well, what does that have to do
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:01:59.280
  • with this message?"
  • 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:00.190
  • Well, this has to do with
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:01.180
  • everything about who we are as a
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:02.140
  • church.
  • 00:02:02.140 --> 00:02:03.090
  • And I want to keep bringing this
  • 00:02:03.090 --> 00:02:04.000
  • to you again and again until
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:05.290
  • you understand that's what
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.030
  • we're all about.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:07.230
  • Otherwise, it will not make
  • 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:08.250
  • sense for us to keep trying to
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.100
  • reach more people.
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:11.070
  • Some people say, "But isn't
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.060
  • the church big enough, pastor?
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:13.120
  • Why are we--" It's not about
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:14.120
  • how many people are here.
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.090
  • It's about how many people are
  • 00:02:15.090 --> 00:02:16.250
  • still lost and how many people
  • 00:02:16.250 --> 00:02:19.000
  • still need Jesus.
  • 00:02:19.000 --> 00:02:20.040
  • That's the number we're
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:21.050
  • counting, and so that's
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:22.230
  • why we keep going.
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:24.060
  • That's why we're constantly
  • 00:02:24.060 --> 00:02:25.050
  • pressing forward to reach more
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:26.140
  • people, to start more churches,
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.210
  • to help make a difference not
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:28.170
  • only here, but around the world
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:29.250
  • so that we can take as many
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.050
  • people to heaven as we can
  • 00:02:31.050 --> 00:02:32.220
  • before we die, period.
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:34.080
  • That's what we're all about.
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:35.170
  • So, let's jump in this message.
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:36.220
  • I'm excited about it because
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:38.010
  • I know all of us have problems
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:39.200
  • in our lives.
  • 00:02:39.200 --> 00:02:40.160
  • All of us are facing
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:41.190
  • difficulties in our lives,
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:43.010
  • every one of us.
  • 00:02:43.010 --> 00:02:43.260
  • So, is there purpose in
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:44.280
  • our problem?
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:45.160
  • Let's see what David did
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:46.200
  • about his problem because in
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:48.090
  • the solution, we find purpose.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:50.230
  • So, check this out.
  • 00:02:50.230 --> 00:02:51.200
  • This is very important.
  • 00:02:51.200 --> 00:02:52.180
  • In fact, let me say that again
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:53.120
  • in case you missed it.
  • 00:02:53.120 --> 00:02:54.110
  • In the solution,
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:02:55.230
  • you find purpose.
  • 00:02:55.230 --> 00:02:57.070
  • See, the problem is a problem,
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.190
  • but in the solution is what we
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.100
  • have to look at because that's
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.130
  • where your purpose is going
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:02.090
  • to be found.
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:02.250
  • Check out what happens here,
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:03.140
  • 1 Samuel 30, verse 17.
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.250
  • "David fought them from dusk
  • 00:03:04.250 --> 00:03:06.020
  • until the evening of the next
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:07.100
  • day, and none of them got away
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:08.240
  • except four hundred young men
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:09.270
  • who rode off on camels
  • 00:03:09.270 --> 00:03:10.290
  • and fled."
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:12.010
  • So David has--remember last week
  • 00:03:12.010 --> 00:03:14.020
  • we talked about how he got--
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:14.250
  • he started off with
  • 00:03:14.250 --> 00:03:16.010
  • no advantage, and he ended up
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:17.040
  • with an advantage because there
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:18.170
  • was--they found an Amalekite.
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:21.000
  • That was the people who had
  • 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:22.100
  • taken their family--one of their
  • 00:03:22.100 --> 00:03:23.130
  • slaves they had sort of
  • 00:03:23.130 --> 00:03:24.100
  • discarded, thrown to the wayside
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:25.080
  • because he was so sick.
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:26.180
  • They found that guy in the field
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:27.270
  • and nursed him back to health,
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:29.210
  • and said, "Can you tell us where
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:31.000
  • the army is going?"
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:32.100
  • And the guy said, "Promise me
  • 00:03:32.100 --> 00:03:33.110
  • you won't kill me or turn me
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:34.130
  • back over to them."
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:35.070
  • They said, "We promise we'll
  • 00:03:35.070 --> 00:03:36.090
  • protect you."
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:36.240
  • "Okay, great, this is where
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:37.110
  • they're going to be."
  • 00:03:37.110 --> 00:03:38.000
  • So, they got an inside track,
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:39.160
  • hunted down the Amalekites
  • 00:03:39.160 --> 00:03:40.230
  • to attack them.
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:42.050
  • And once they got there,
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.050
  • they had to fight.
  • 00:03:43.050 --> 00:03:44.070
  • Let me just back up real quick
  • 00:03:44.070 --> 00:03:45.110
  • and just tell you one thing
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:46.200
  • before we go any further.
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:47.170
  • If you think for a second that
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:49.170
  • your problem will be solved
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:50.290
  • without a fight,
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:52.040
  • you're kidding yourself.
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:53.290
  • So, you just need to know that
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:54.250
  • one of the reasons why we stay
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:56.040
  • in problems too long is 'cause
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:03:57.160
  • we do not let it develop a
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:03:58.240
  • fighter within us.
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:04:00.240
  • But God wants us to be fighters.
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:03.160
  • The Bible says we are warriors.
  • 00:04:03.160 --> 00:04:05.160
  • And so, if that's the case, then
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:06.280
  • we need to let the warrior
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.100
  • within us rise up.
  • 00:04:08.100 --> 00:04:10.110
  • Number one, would you
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:11.010
  • write this down?
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:11.180
  • Let your desperation
  • 00:04:11.180 --> 00:04:12.130
  • create a fighter in you.
  • 00:04:12.130 --> 00:04:14.130
  • Let your desperation
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:15.140
  • create a fighter in you.
  • 00:04:15.140 --> 00:04:16.070
  • In fact, I think desperation
  • 00:04:16.070 --> 00:04:18.070
  • is way more important
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:19.170
  • than inspiration.
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:21.170
  • I really believe this.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:22.090
  • You can be inspired all day long
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:23.240
  • by this message,
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:25.040
  • and you won't do much.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.140
  • But if you're desperate,
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:27.040
  • you'll do something.
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:29.040
  • Desperation causes you to
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:30.290
  • discover new things about
  • 00:04:30.290 --> 00:04:32.070
  • yourself you didn't know
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:33.050
  • you had.
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:33.220
  • Desperation will create
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:35.070
  • a work ethic you didn't even
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:36.110
  • know was there.
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:37.230
  • But all of a sudden, when you're
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:38.250
  • desperate, when you can barely
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:40.010
  • pay your bills,
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:40.240
  • you'll take any job.
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:42.150
  • All of a sudden, you
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:43.070
  • discover a new work ethic.
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.210
  • When you can--when you're really
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:46.050
  • struggling and you need to hear
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:47.080
  • from God now, you'll suddenly
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.150
  • worship like you've never
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:49.120
  • worshiped, right?
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:51.000
  • Desperation creates great
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:51.240
  • worshipers, not inspiration.
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:53.290
  • I'm just telling you right now.
  • 00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:54.200
  • "Oh, I came to be inspired."
  • 00:04:54.200 --> 00:04:55.240
  • Or did you show up today because
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:56.280
  • you're like, "I am desperate
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:57.220
  • for God, and I need you, Lord.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:59.100
  • I need you in my life now,
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:00.140
  • and I'm calling out to you"?
  • 00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:01.290
  • That's real worship.
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:03.220
  • It's incredible what you'll try,
  • 00:05:03.220 --> 00:05:05.100
  • it's unbelievable the grasp
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:07.060
  • you will reach for when
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:08.240
  • you have nothing but hope.
  • 00:05:08.240 --> 00:05:11.040
  • Desperation is a great thing.
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.250
  • It causes you to work harder,
  • 00:05:12.250 --> 00:05:14.200
  • it causes you to focus
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.010
  • more than ever.
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.010
  • And you know one of the greatest
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:18.020
  • things about your problems,
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:19.040
  • by the way, is that
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:21.110
  • when you have a problem,
  • 00:05:21.110 --> 00:05:22.080
  • it does not allow you to coast.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:24.270
  • Some of you have talents
  • 00:05:24.270 --> 00:05:26.180
  • and abilities that are so good
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.170
  • that you actually coast on them,
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:31.090
  • and you never have to really
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:32.010
  • develop them that much.
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:33.190
  • That's a real problem.
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:34.230
  • I had a friend of mine in
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:35.170
  • high school, this guy was
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.090
  • an incredible athlete.
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.020
  • He never worked out.
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.010
  • And he'd walk into the weight
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:40.010
  • room and on max day, he would
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:42.130
  • just get underneath the weights
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:43.180
  • and he would just bench
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:44.110
  • 400 pounds.
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:45.180
  • He never worked out.
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.260
  • In fact, the problem that he had
  • 00:05:47.260 --> 00:05:49.100
  • was the coaches always told him,
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:50.150
  • said, "The problem with you is
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:51.180
  • not that you're not incredibly
  • 00:05:51.180 --> 00:05:52.260
  • talented," because the guy could
  • 00:05:52.260 --> 00:05:53.220
  • run, like a 4.6 40 and he was
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:56.050
  • about 280 pounds.
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:57.010
  • The guy was a machine,
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.030
  • he was unbelievable.
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:58.240
  • The problem that they had
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:00.030
  • with him is that he just was
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:00.270
  • kind of lazy.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.020
  • But by the time he got to
  • 00:06:02.020 --> 00:06:02.260
  • college, they broke him of that,
  • 00:06:02.260 --> 00:06:04.090
  • and he went on to be a
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.010
  • Pro Bowl NFL player.
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:06.090
  • Guy was amazing, his name was
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:07.020
  • Sam Adams.
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:07.220
  • He lived right down the street
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:08.100
  • from me.
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:09.120
  • But the truth is that he
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:10.150
  • had incredible talents, he just
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:11.280
  • had to get--the coaches had to
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:12.280
  • convince him to quit coasting.
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.180
  • Because every fourth or fifth
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:15.140
  • play, he'd finally get tired of
  • 00:06:15.140 --> 00:06:16.110
  • playing, and he would just
  • 00:06:16.110 --> 00:06:17.160
  • sack the quarterback.
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:19.160
  • But he could have done it
  • 00:06:19.160 --> 00:06:20.050
  • every play.
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:21.050
  • He was that good.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.100
  • Could it be that you have some
  • 00:06:22.100 --> 00:06:23.070
  • talent in you that, if
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:24.080
  • you didn't have the problem
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:25.240
  • that came into your life,
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:27.020
  • you wouldn't be working as hard
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.110
  • as you're working?
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:29.190
  • See, problems create
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:31.010
  • a work ethic in you.
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:32.140
  • Problems create a desperation
  • 00:06:32.140 --> 00:06:33.280
  • to get something done, to work
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:35.120
  • harder, to do things that
  • 00:06:35.120 --> 00:06:36.140
  • you normally would not do.
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:38.140
  • Desperation can create
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:39.090
  • a fighter in you.
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:40.110
  • This is a strength,
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:41.120
  • not a weakness.
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.150
  • This will get you hardened
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:44.070
  • in the right areas.
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:47.000
  • I brought some weights
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:47.240
  • up here with me.
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:48.220
  • I'm sure you can tell
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:49.220
  • I'm a weight lifter.
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:50.180
  • Anyways,
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:52.210
  • so I grab some weights here.
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:53.240
  • You know, if I was going to--if
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:54.250
  • I was going to, you know, start
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:06:56.090
  • off with something--and if
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:57.250
  • you came home or showed up at
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:06:59.250
  • the gym and you saw me there,
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:01.000
  • and you said, "Hey, what have
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.130
  • you been doing?"
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:03.020
  • I'd say, "Man, I've been working
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:03.210
  • out all day.
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:04.130
  • I mean, just nonstop.
  • 00:07:04.130 --> 00:07:05.230
  • It's like all I do is work out,
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:07.120
  • work out."
  • 00:07:07.120 --> 00:07:07.280
  • You'd say, "Pastor Bil,
  • 00:07:07.280 --> 00:07:09.000
  • that's great,
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:09.180
  • but there's no resistance.
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:11.220
  • I mean, there's no weight on
  • 00:07:11.220 --> 00:07:13.090
  • there.
  • 00:07:13.090 --> 00:07:14.050
  • It doesn't really mean much.
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:16.010
  • You're not really going to get
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:16.220
  • anywhere."
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:17.100
  • But if you start to add a little
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:18.200
  • resistance, okay, now do that
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:19.240
  • a few times and that's going to
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:21.240
  • start to wear you out.
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:23.040
  • I got to be careful, I don't
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:23.240
  • want to rip a hole in my shirt,
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:25.040
  • you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:27.040
  • But the truth is if I do this
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:27.240
  • enough, eventually
  • 00:07:27.240 --> 00:07:28.230
  • I'll get warn out.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.140
  • But the truth is if I really
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:30.260
  • want to wear myself out,
  • 00:07:30.260 --> 00:07:32.000
  • all I have to do is
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:33.220
  • add some more weight.
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:38.120
  • Okay, now that's going to--yeah,
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:40.260
  • I'm not going to be able to do a
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:42.100
  • whole lot of that.
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:44.000
  • That's going to wear me out.
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:44.230
  • Now, here's the thing.
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:45.160
  • When you're in the middle of
  • 00:07:45.160 --> 00:07:46.080
  • a set, you can either focus on
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:47.190
  • the pain and the weight of it,
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:49.080
  • or you can focus on
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:50.030
  • the development.
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:52.130
  • See, the real key to you
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:54.190
  • developing is in the middle of
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:56.160
  • your problem, either focus on
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:57.180
  • the problem or you get focused
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.190
  • on your development.
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:02.000
  • The purpose of your problems
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:04.180
  • is your development.
  • 00:08:04.180 --> 00:08:07.040
  • It's who you become in
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:08.230
  • the process of the difficulties.
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:11.050
  • Character is not developed
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.180
  • in good times.
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:13.290
  • Character is developed
  • 00:08:13.290 --> 00:08:15.210
  • in bad times.
  • 00:08:15.210 --> 00:08:17.090
  • Character is developed through
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.280
  • pain, through problems, through
  • 00:08:18.280 --> 00:08:20.190
  • difficulties, through trials.
  • 00:08:20.190 --> 00:08:21.290
  • Consider it pure joy, my
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:23.150
  • brothers, when you face trials,
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:26.190
  • difficulties, painful moments.
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:28.230
  • That's actually what grows you
  • 00:08:28.230 --> 00:08:30.270
  • into who God knows you can be.
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:32.290
  • Look what happens next,
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:33.180
  • 1 Samuel 30, verse 18.
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:34.200
  • "David recovered everything
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:35.260
  • the Amalekites had taken,
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:36.260
  • including his two wives.
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:38.090
  • Nothing was missing, young
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:39.070
  • or old, boy or girl, plunder
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:40.270
  • or anything else they had taken.
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:43.090
  • David brought everything back."
  • 00:08:43.090 --> 00:08:46.000
  • This is very important.
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:46.230
  • Number two, take back
  • 00:08:46.230 --> 00:08:47.220
  • what is rightfully yours.
  • 00:08:47.220 --> 00:08:49.060
  • Take back what is
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.190
  • rightfully yours.
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:52.190
  • Oftentimes, we don't realize
  • 00:08:52.190 --> 00:08:54.060
  • what we are giving away through
  • 00:08:54.060 --> 00:08:56.060
  • compromise, through
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:08:57.140
  • just laziness,
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:08:58.210
  • or just through a lack of focus.
  • 00:08:58.210 --> 00:09:00.030
  • We're just giving away some
  • 00:09:00.030 --> 00:09:01.100
  • of our greatest strengths,
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:02.160
  • you know?
  • 00:09:02.160 --> 00:09:03.070
  • I see this happen all the time
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:04.040
  • with young people.
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:04.240
  • They're giving away their
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:05.120
  • innocence by what they allow
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:06.120
  • themselves to watch.
  • 00:09:06.120 --> 00:09:07.190
  • They're giving away their
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:08.180
  • innocence by what they allow
  • 00:09:08.180 --> 00:09:09.150
  • themselves to listen to.
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:10.250
  • You know, they're giving away
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:12.090
  • their hopes and dreams.
  • 00:09:12.090 --> 00:09:13.290
  • They're giving away so much
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.070
  • because they want to bad to be
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:16.010
  • popular and to be cool.
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:17.090
  • And the truth is that
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:18.080
  • the second, not a few days, not
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:20.010
  • a few months, but the second you
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:21.170
  • graduate, you're not going to
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:23.010
  • know anybody anymore
  • 00:09:23.010 --> 00:09:24.060
  • from that school.
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:25.110
  • You're done.
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:26.090
  • I don't keep up with anyone
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:28.100
  • from high school.
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.140
  • And I look back and I'm like,
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:30.160
  • "How much time did I waste
  • 00:09:30.160 --> 00:09:31.180
  • caring about what
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:32.270
  • other people thought?
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:34.020
  • What a total waste of time."
  • 00:09:34.020 --> 00:09:36.280
  • You know, they're giving away
  • 00:09:36.280 --> 00:09:38.050
  • their future for what
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:39.210
  • they can have now.
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:40.220
  • You know, what is it that
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:41.190
  • you've given away?
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.090
  • Maybe you've given away
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:43.140
  • your health by some bad habits,
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.220
  • and it's time to take back
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:45.240
  • your health.
  • 00:09:45.240 --> 00:09:46.200
  • You fight and take it back.
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:47.150
  • Maybe you need to take back your
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:48.240
  • vision for your life,
  • 00:09:48.240 --> 00:09:49.250
  • take back your family,
  • 00:09:49.250 --> 00:09:50.270
  • take back your happiness.
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:52.100
  • What is it that God is saying?
  • 00:09:52.100 --> 00:09:53.200
  • It's time for you
  • 00:09:53.200 --> 00:09:54.180
  • to take it back.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:55.090
  • It doesn't mean it's not
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:55.250
  • going to involve work.
  • 00:09:55.250 --> 00:09:56.130
  • It says here that David fought.
  • 00:09:56.130 --> 00:09:57.090
  • You have to fight for what
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:58.090
  • matters the most in your life.
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.240
  • I heard about this college
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:00.120
  • professor, a young student came
  • 00:10:00.120 --> 00:10:02.290
  • to him and she walked in his
  • 00:10:02.290 --> 00:10:04.260
  • office, and she closed the door
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.090
  • behind her.
  • 00:10:06.090 --> 00:10:07.120
  • And he was like,
  • 00:10:07.120 --> 00:10:08.060
  • "Is everything okay?"
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:09.010
  • And she says, "Yes.
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:09.230
  • Professor, I need to ask you
  • 00:10:09.230 --> 00:10:10.130
  • a question."
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.020
  • He says, "Okay."
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:12.250
  • And she says, "I just want you
  • 00:10:12.250 --> 00:10:13.180
  • to know I know we have a test
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:14.150
  • today, and I will do anything
  • 00:10:14.150 --> 00:10:16.190
  • to pass this test."
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:17.270
  • And he was like, "Okay."
  • 00:10:17.270 --> 00:10:19.010
  • And then she reached over and
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:20.010
  • the turned the shades
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.110
  • down, she said, "Anything."
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:23.010
  • And he was like,
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:23.240
  • "You'll do anything?"
  • 00:10:23.240 --> 00:10:24.200
  • And she smiled with a little
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:26.070
  • mischievous smile, and she said,
  • 00:10:26.070 --> 00:10:27.000
  • "I'll do anything."
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:28.140
  • And he said, "Okay,
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.060
  • will you study?"
  • 00:10:29.070 --> 00:10:32.070
  • Isn't that funny how we'll
  • 00:10:32.070 --> 00:10:33.190
  • compromise our convictions
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:37.130
  • just to get around studying,
  • 00:10:37.130 --> 00:10:39.230
  • just to get around working hard?
  • 00:10:39.230 --> 00:10:41.120
  • The truth is that one of
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:42.110
  • the things that God will develop
  • 00:10:42.110 --> 00:10:44.020
  • in you through your problems is
  • 00:10:44.020 --> 00:10:44.270
  • just a work ethic and just
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:46.140
  • the ability to face
  • 00:10:46.140 --> 00:10:47.050
  • difficulties.
  • 00:10:47.050 --> 00:10:48.000
  • That's actually a strength.
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:48.290
  • Sometimes, the greatest reward
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:50.010
  • for overcoming a problem
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:51.190
  • is having faced it.
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.090
  • It's just being able to say,
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:54.250
  • "You know what?
  • 00:10:54.250 --> 00:10:55.140
  • I did that.
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:56.200
  • Feels pretty good.
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:57.180
  • We did that together."
  • 00:10:57.180 --> 00:10:58.160
  • You know, we face problems
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:10:59.170
  • as a church together,
  • 00:10:59.170 --> 00:11:00.160
  • and we face them and guess what?
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:01.130
  • It feels good to know,
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:02.210
  • "You know, we did that."
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:03.180
  • There's a good personal pride
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:04.240
  • that can be built up in all
  • 00:11:04.240 --> 00:11:06.130
  • of us that says,
  • 00:11:06.130 --> 00:11:07.050
  • "I achieved something.
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:08.180
  • I've done something here."
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:09.190
  • I've noticed in today's culture
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:10.180
  • now, we're like--we're making
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:12.020
  • fun or knocking people
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:13.170
  • who are successful.
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:15.080
  • That's a dangerous thing to do
  • 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:16.160
  • because when you begin to
  • 00:11:16.160 --> 00:11:17.260
  • knock success, you're pushing
  • 00:11:17.260 --> 00:11:19.280
  • it away from yourself.
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.120
  • Right, we need to say,
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:23.030
  • "You know, what did they do to
  • 00:11:23.030 --> 00:11:23.260
  • get where they are?
  • 00:11:23.260 --> 00:11:24.290
  • And I can do the same thing to
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:26.050
  • get that too."
  • 00:11:26.050 --> 00:11:27.150
  • That's a wonderful thing.
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:28.090
  • It's a good thing to achieve
  • 00:11:28.090 --> 00:11:29.190
  • something, to accomplish
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:30.240
  • something in your life.
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:31.220
  • And I think sometimes,
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:32.230
  • we've made it out like
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:33.290
  • it's a bad thing.
  • 00:11:33.290 --> 00:11:34.270
  • And it's a wonderful thing.
  • 00:11:34.270 --> 00:11:36.150
  • It's good to be able to go
  • 00:11:36.150 --> 00:11:37.240
  • for goals, and go for dreams,
  • 00:11:37.240 --> 00:11:39.020
  • and overcome your problems, and
  • 00:11:39.020 --> 00:11:41.030
  • overcome your difficulties.
  • 00:11:41.030 --> 00:11:42.040
  • There's nothing wrong with that.
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:43.080
  • Speaking of that, look at 1
  • 00:11:43.080 --> 00:11:44.010
  • Samuel 30, verse 20.
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:45.070
  • It says, "He took all the flocks
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:46.150
  • and herds, and his men drove
  • 00:11:46.150 --> 00:11:47.250
  • them ahead of all the other
  • 00:11:47.250 --> 00:11:48.230
  • livestock."
  • 00:11:48.230 --> 00:11:49.140
  • This is after he's conquered
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:50.030
  • the Amalekite army.
  • 00:11:50.030 --> 00:11:52.010
  • It says,
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:52.220
  • "This is David's plunder."
  • 00:11:52.220 --> 00:11:53.290
  • And so, he takes
  • 00:11:53.290 --> 00:11:54.250
  • all the flocks and herds.
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:56.270
  • It doesn't say David took
  • 00:11:56.270 --> 00:11:58.100
  • his flocks and herds.
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:12:00.060
  • He took all of the flocks
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:01.280
  • and herds.
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:02.170
  • This is very important because
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:03.140
  • I want to focus on this for just
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:05.000
  • a moment.
  • 00:12:05.000 --> 00:12:05.250
  • Number three, keep in mind
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:06.200
  • the increased rewards
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:08.070
  • for solving your problem.
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:09.170
  • Plunder is just the rewards.
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:11.060
  • Plunder means that, you know,
  • 00:12:11.060 --> 00:12:12.110
  • if you go and you conquer
  • 00:12:12.110 --> 00:12:13.030
  • something, you get to take
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:13.260
  • the spoils with you, right?
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.080
  • Plunder comes in different ways.
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:16.080
  • Maybe for you, you know, you
  • 00:12:16.080 --> 00:12:17.090
  • need to focus on the plunder.
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:18.190
  • Let me tell you what I mean
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:19.180
  • by that.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:20.100
  • Don't be afraid to focus on
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:21.030
  • rewards in solving your problem.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:22.250
  • Sometimes, that's what it takes
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:23.150
  • to get you focused.
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:24.150
  • And so, there's nothing wrong
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:25.100
  • with that.
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:25.290
  • There's a whole group of people
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:26.210
  • that have intrinsic motivation.
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:28.140
  • And there's a whole other group
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:30.020
  • of people that have extrinsic
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:31.080
  • motivation.
  • 00:12:31.080 --> 00:12:31.290
  • Intrinsic just means inside
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:32.190
  • motivation.
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:33.160
  • It's just more of a character
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:34.230
  • thing, it's just a personal
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:35.190
  • thing that you are intrinsically
  • 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:36.260
  • motivated.
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:37.220
  • Some people need a little
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:38.210
  • extrinsic motivation, and they
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:39.240
  • need to see what's the carrot.
  • 00:12:39.240 --> 00:12:41.060
  • What am I going to win?
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:42.070
  • What am I going to gain?
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:43.090
  • What am I going to get?
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:44.030
  • How many of you guys are
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:45.010
  • intrinsically motivated, just
  • 00:12:45.010 --> 00:12:46.010
  • inside internally, you're
  • 00:12:46.010 --> 00:12:47.090
  • motivated by just knowing that
  • 00:12:47.090 --> 00:12:48.050
  • you bettered yourself?
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:49.150
  • Okay, great.
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:50.150
  • How many of you honestly,
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:51.100
  • sincerely are externally
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:52.230
  • motivated, like if a achieve
  • 00:12:52.230 --> 00:12:54.120
  • something, if I get something?
  • 00:12:54.120 --> 00:12:55.280
  • Go ahead and raise your hand.
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:57.020
  • Isn't that funny how no one
  • 00:12:57.020 --> 00:12:58.020
  • wants to raise their hand
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:58.290
  • on that?
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:12:59.180
  • It's like we're embarrassed to
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:00.130
  • admit that we want something,
  • 00:13:00.130 --> 00:13:01.170
  • right?
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:02.160
  • Because we've been taught, let's
  • 00:13:02.160 --> 00:13:04.030
  • be honest, in church that it's
  • 00:13:04.030 --> 00:13:05.240
  • wrong if you want something,
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:07.170
  • that it's bad if you want
  • 00:13:07.170 --> 00:13:09.050
  • plunder.
  • 00:13:09.050 --> 00:13:09.270
  • That's dirty if you like stuff.
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:11.250
  • But let me just back up and
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.220
  • explain this real quick.
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:14.220
  • David was very extrinsically
  • 00:13:14.220 --> 00:13:16.270
  • motivated.
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:17.210
  • Do you know how we know this?
  • 00:13:17.210 --> 00:13:18.130
  • Because when he went to kill
  • 00:13:18.130 --> 00:13:19.110
  • Goliath, what did he say?
  • 00:13:19.110 --> 00:13:20.060
  • He said, "What do I get
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:20.270
  • if I kill the giant?"
  • 00:13:20.270 --> 00:13:22.210
  • He wanted to know,
  • 00:13:22.210 --> 00:13:23.070
  • "What am I going to get?"
  • 00:13:23.070 --> 00:13:23.280
  • Okay, you get to marry
  • 00:13:23.280 --> 00:13:24.170
  • the king's daughter.
  • 00:13:24.170 --> 00:13:25.250
  • You know, he's like, "Which one,
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:26.190
  • the good looking one or the one
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:27.220
  • with the good personality?
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:28.200
  • Which one are we talking about?"
  • 00:13:28.200 --> 00:13:29.290
  • Right?
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:31.010
  • I'm just saying let's be honest
  • 00:13:31.010 --> 00:13:32.100
  • here.
  • 00:13:32.100 --> 00:13:33.130
  • And so, he's like, "So
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:34.090
  • I get to marry the daughter."
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:35.090
  • And you don't have to pay taxes.
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.080
  • "Really, I don't have to pay
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:36.250
  • taxes?"
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:37.110
  • Right, he wanted to know,
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:38.000
  • "What am I going to get?"
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:38.260
  • And so, he was
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:39.210
  • externally motivated.
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:41.000
  • Now, before you say,
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:41.270
  • "See, that's just wrong.
  • 00:13:41.270 --> 00:13:43.050
  • He should just--
  • 00:13:43.050 --> 00:13:43.230
  • it should all be internal."
  • 00:13:43.230 --> 00:13:44.220
  • If it was not for externally
  • 00:13:44.220 --> 00:13:46.000
  • motivated people, those same
  • 00:13:46.000 --> 00:13:47.170
  • people are the ones who
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:48.230
  • externally are motivated to give
  • 00:13:48.230 --> 00:13:49.280
  • to God too because David
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:51.050
  • externally was motivated
  • 00:13:51.050 --> 00:13:52.210
  • to get plunder, to get stuff.
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.220
  • But he was also the one that
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:55.290
  • financed the house of God.
  • 00:13:55.290 --> 00:13:58.160
  • He was also the one who gave
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:13:59.230
  • to God's house.
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:00.290
  • So, I always try to recommend to
  • 00:14:00.290 --> 00:14:02.140
  • people over and over when they
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:03.230
  • say, "Is it bad that I want to
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:04.280
  • win the car, that I want to win
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.250
  • the--" I'm like, "No, there's
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:07.230
  • nothing with that, but what
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:08.170
  • are you going to do with it?"
  • 00:14:08.170 --> 00:14:11.050
  • So, maybe you say, "Lord,
  • 00:14:11.050 --> 00:14:12.130
  • I'm imagining this new house."
  • 00:14:12.130 --> 00:14:14.040
  • Why don't you begin to imagine
  • 00:14:14.040 --> 00:14:15.130
  • not only that house, but imagine
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:16.150
  • that new, nice living room
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:17.220
  • that you're having
  • 00:14:17.220 --> 00:14:18.130
  • your small group in?
  • 00:14:18.130 --> 00:14:20.270
  • Instead of just saying, "Oh
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:21.200
  • Lord, I can't wait to win that
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:22.250
  • bonus but Lord, I can't wait to
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.080
  • also give off of that bonus.
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:28.040
  • Lord, I can't wait to go to
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:29.200
  • college and get my degree, but
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:31.020
  • Lord, also I can't wait because
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:32.120
  • I know that all the siblings
  • 00:14:32.120 --> 00:14:33.240
  • after me are going to go get
  • 00:14:33.240 --> 00:14:35.130
  • their degree too, and
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.190
  • I'm going to set a new standard
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:37.090
  • in my family."
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:38.100
  • See, there's nothing wrong with
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.000
  • extrinsic motivation.
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:40.080
  • In fact, dare I say people
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:41.150
  • who sometimes think,
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:42.200
  • "Well, that's just wrong.
  • 00:14:42.200 --> 00:14:43.220
  • We should just be all about
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:44.150
  • the intrinsic.
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:45.140
  • It should just be internal
  • 00:14:45.140 --> 00:14:46.190
  • motivation, and I'm just
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:47.180
  • motivated just because it's just
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:48.230
  • me and God," that's incredibly
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:50.100
  • selfish of you to not think of
  • 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:51.110
  • anyone but yourself.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:52.240
  • See, I can argue the opposite
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:55.080
  • also to say if it's just
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:57.020
  • intrinsically motivated, are you
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:58.170
  • thinking beyond yourself?
  • 00:14:58.240 --> 00:15:01.260
  • So, there's nothing wrong with
  • 00:15:01.260 --> 00:15:02.140
  • how you're motivated.
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:03.140
  • God made you that way.
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:05.120
  • Some of us are completely
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:06.210
  • intrinsically motivated.
  • 00:15:06.210 --> 00:15:08.010
  • Some people are externally
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:09.060
  • motivated.
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:09.260
  • The truth is we're probably
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:10.190
  • a little of both.
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:11.270
  • And there's nothing wrong
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:12.220
  • with that.
  • 00:15:12.220 --> 00:15:13.170
  • It's not how you're motivated.
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:15.020
  • It's what do you do with
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:16.050
  • the plunder.
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:16.280
  • It's not whether you
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:17.140
  • get plunder; what are you doing
  • 00:15:17.140 --> 00:15:18.230
  • with your plunder?
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:20.070
  • Are you honoring God with it?
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.250
  • "Well, I really want to make
  • 00:15:21.250 --> 00:15:22.290
  • a lot of money."
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:23.180
  • Well, are you giving a lot too?
  • 00:15:23.180 --> 00:15:26.050
  • "Well, I really want to have
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:26.230
  • a high position."
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:27.200
  • Are you using that position
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:28.140
  • to honor God?
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:30.170
  • There's nothing wrong
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:31.040
  • with ambition, nothing wrong
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:32.140
  • with plunder.
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:33.040
  • What are you doing
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:33.250
  • with the plunder?
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:34.170
  • And that's the difference.
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.120
  • In fact, we're going to see in
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:36.120
  • just a moment here what David
  • 00:15:36.120 --> 00:15:38.040
  • does with the plunder
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:39.120
  • is the game changing move
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:41.070
  • that solidifies
  • 00:15:41.070 --> 00:15:43.070
  • what God does in his future.
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:44.260
  • We're going to talk about
  • 00:15:44.260 --> 00:15:45.120
  • it in just a moment.
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:46.010
  • Because here's the truth.
  • 00:15:46.010 --> 00:15:46.210
  • Many of you are going for your
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:47.120
  • success, but it's not what you--
  • 00:15:47.120 --> 00:15:48.210
  • what really matters is not
  • 00:15:48.210 --> 00:15:50.110
  • the success that you get.
  • 00:15:50.110 --> 00:15:51.210
  • It's what you do after
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:52.140
  • the success.
  • 00:15:52.140 --> 00:15:53.170
  • Because here's your truth.
  • 00:15:53.170 --> 00:15:54.080
  • If you don't handle it right,
  • 00:15:54.080 --> 00:15:55.230
  • you'll be a one-hit wonder.
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:57.060
  • But David was not a one-hit
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:59.120
  • wonder, and the reason why is
  • 00:15:59.120 --> 00:16:00.150
  • because he knew how to handle
  • 00:16:00.150 --> 00:16:01.240
  • what God had given him.
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:02.280
  • We're going to talk about
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:03.200
  • that in just a moment.
  • 00:16:03.200 --> 00:16:04.080
  • Check it out, verse 21.
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:05.000
  • So, now he's got this victory,
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.010
  • he's got the plunder.
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:07.010
  • Look what happens in verse 21.
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:08.060
  • "Then David came to
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:09.030
  • the two hundred men who had been
  • 00:16:09.030 --> 00:16:10.030
  • too exhausted to follow him
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:11.080
  • and who were left behind
  • 00:16:11.080 --> 00:16:12.110
  • at the Besor Valley."
  • 00:16:12.110 --> 00:16:13.160
  • Remember last week, we talked
  • 00:16:13.160 --> 00:16:14.040
  • about how not everyone's going
  • 00:16:14.040 --> 00:16:15.060
  • to go with you, and some of
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:15.250
  • the guy stayed behind?
  • 00:16:15.250 --> 00:16:17.120
  • A third of his army were
  • 00:16:17.120 --> 00:16:18.020
  • too tired.
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:18.260
  • And so, they said,
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:19.160
  • "Oh, we're exhausted.
  • 00:16:19.160 --> 00:16:20.080
  • We just can't go on
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:20.270
  • any further."
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:21.280
  • So he said, "All right, you all
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:22.180
  • stay here with the stuff.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:23.140
  • You all stay here with the
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:24.010
  • supplies, and the rest of us
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:24.250
  • are going to go out and fight
  • 00:16:24.250 --> 00:16:25.280
  • the battle," right?
  • 00:16:25.280 --> 00:16:27.080
  • And so, now they come back to
  • 00:16:27.080 --> 00:16:28.220
  • those 200 men who were waiting
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:30.150
  • around, right?
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:31.130
  • "They came out to meet David
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:32.170
  • and the men with him.
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:33.120
  • As David and his men approached,
  • 00:16:33.120 --> 00:16:34.120
  • he asked them how they were.
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:35.250
  • But all the evil men
  • 00:16:35.250 --> 00:16:37.000
  • and troublemakers among David's
  • 00:16:37.000 --> 00:16:38.140
  • followers said, 'Because they
  • 00:16:38.140 --> 00:16:39.160
  • did not go out with us, we
  • 00:16:39.160 --> 00:16:40.290
  • will not share with them
  • 00:16:40.290 --> 00:16:42.010
  • the plunder we recovered.
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:43.130
  • However, each man may take
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:44.060
  • his wife and children and go.'
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:46.230
  • But David replied, 'No,
  • 00:16:46.230 --> 00:16:48.000
  • my brothers, you must not do
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:49.080
  • that with what the Lord
  • 00:16:49.080 --> 00:16:50.210
  • has given us."
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:51.290
  • Who gave it to them?
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:53.080
  • Oh wow, see, that changes
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:54.220
  • how you handle it, right?
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:55.190
  • "'He has protected us
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:57.050
  • and delivered into our hands
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:16:59.010
  • the raiding party that came
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:17:00.140
  • against us.
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:01.040
  • Who will listen to what you say?
  • 00:17:01.040 --> 00:17:02.120
  • The share of the man who stayed
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:03.190
  • with the supplies is to be
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:04.210
  • the same as that of him
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:05.220
  • who went down to the battle.
  • 00:17:05.220 --> 00:17:07.270
  • All will share alike.'
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:09.130
  • David made this a statute
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:10.120
  • and ordinance for Israel from
  • 00:17:10.120 --> 00:17:11.110
  • that day to this."
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:12.190
  • Do you know we apply the same
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:13.250
  • principle in our armies?
  • 00:17:13.250 --> 00:17:15.260
  • Did you realize that?
  • 00:17:15.260 --> 00:17:16.270
  • That you are just as valuable if
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:19.140
  • you are in the supply line, or
  • 00:17:19.140 --> 00:17:21.120
  • if you're in the mess hall, or
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.290
  • if you are fixing the mechanical
  • 00:17:22.290 --> 00:17:25.210
  • issues on the tanks or the jets,
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.070
  • as the person driving them.
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:28.280
  • And if you don't believe me,
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:30.070
  • if you're the pilot, I bet you
  • 00:17:30.070 --> 00:17:31.080
  • really want to make sure that
  • 00:17:31.080 --> 00:17:32.080
  • they have good mechanics, right?
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:34.210
  • And so, it's just as important.
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:36.110
  • Both are needed for battle.
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:38.120
  • This is a really big deal,
  • 00:17:38.120 --> 00:17:39.150
  • but what this teaches us is
  • 00:17:39.150 --> 00:17:40.160
  • a powerful principle,
  • 00:17:40.160 --> 00:17:41.070
  • one of the greatest things your
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:42.090
  • problems will do for you.
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:43.070
  • Number four, let your problems
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:44.110
  • create a heart of grace
  • 00:17:44.110 --> 00:17:46.110
  • towards others.
  • 00:17:46.280 --> 00:17:49.280
  • Listen, nothing will give you
  • 00:17:49.280 --> 00:17:52.080
  • grace towards others like
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:53.090
  • having a problem of your own.
  • 00:17:53.090 --> 00:17:55.180
  • You know?
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:56.220
  • Remember how judgmental you were
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:57.210
  • about parents and how unruly
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:18:00.020
  • their kids were in public
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:00.290
  • until you had kids?
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:03.280
  • All of a sudden, you're like,
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:04.170
  • "Ooh yeah, I'm not going to
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:05.230
  • say that anymore," right?
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:07.030
  • Remember how judgmental
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:08.190
  • you were about people who had
  • 00:18:08.190 --> 00:18:09.150
  • gone through divorce until
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:10.090
  • you went through a divorce?
  • 00:18:10.090 --> 00:18:13.040
  • Right?
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:14.000
  • Remember how judgmental you were
  • 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:15.200
  • towards someone who lost their
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:17.070
  • job until you lost your job?
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:20.020
  • It's just--I'm just telling you
  • 00:18:20.020 --> 00:18:21.170
  • what happens is we really get
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:22.270
  • a heart of grace whenever
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:24.160
  • we face a problem that
  • 00:18:24.160 --> 00:18:25.160
  • we can't solve on our own.
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:27.260
  • It's incredible
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:28.150
  • what that does for you.
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:29.130
  • One of the greatest gifts that
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:31.040
  • God can ever give you is a heart
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:33.030
  • of grace towards people because
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:33.280
  • of what you've gone through.
  • 00:18:33.280 --> 00:18:35.220
  • People that are compassionate
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:36.240
  • towards others
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:37.240
  • have been there themselves.
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:40.120
  • And so, it's easier to have
  • 00:18:40.120 --> 00:18:41.010
  • compassion.
  • 00:18:41.010 --> 00:18:42.120
  • This is a principle, by the way,
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:43.080
  • this is one of our core values
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:44.160
  • here.
  • 00:18:44.160 --> 00:18:45.030
  • It's grace, which is that
  • 00:18:45.030 --> 00:18:46.030
  • your past is not your future.
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:48.040
  • You're welcome here.
  • 00:18:48.040 --> 00:18:49.170
  • In fact, I just want to stop
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:50.060
  • for a moment and just tell you
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:50.270
  • something that maybe you need to
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.000
  • hear today.
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:52.200
  • Maybe you came in the doors
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:53.170
  • today and you're like, "Pastor,
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:54.260
  • I mean, you don't know the stuff
  • 00:18:54.260 --> 00:18:55.250
  • I've done this week.
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:56.180
  • You don't know the stuff I'm
  • 00:18:56.180 --> 00:18:57.060
  • still into.
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:18:57.290
  • And I don't know if I can stop."
  • 00:18:57.290 --> 00:18:58.290
  • I just want to tell you right
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:00.040
  • now God loves you just
  • 00:19:00.040 --> 00:19:01.080
  • like you are.
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:02.080
  • And you have not
  • 00:19:02.080 --> 00:19:03.140
  • overblown his love.
  • 00:19:03.140 --> 00:19:04.160
  • You cannot out-sin his coverage.
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:06.180
  • He loves you, he forgives you,
  • 00:19:06.180 --> 00:19:08.150
  • and let today be a fresh
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.230
  • start for you.
  • 00:19:09.230 --> 00:19:10.180
  • You are welcome here,
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:11.220
  • you are accepted.
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:12.230
  • Please experience God's grace
  • 00:19:12.230 --> 00:19:14.290
  • today.
  • 00:19:14.290 --> 00:19:16.180
  • He loves you just like you are.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:20.100
  • You know, your problem probably
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:22.010
  • has an easier fix
  • 00:19:22.010 --> 00:19:23.140
  • than you recognize.
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:24.090
  • You got to get below the surface
  • 00:19:24.090 --> 00:19:25.070
  • to see it.
  • 00:19:25.070 --> 00:19:26.270
  • There is an answer that's
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:29.060
  • probably very simple.
  • 00:19:29.060 --> 00:19:31.010
  • Let God open your mind to new
  • 00:19:31.010 --> 00:19:33.060
  • ways because you may not think
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:34.210
  • you have the strength to solve
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:35.220
  • it, but you do.
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:37.140
  • Because God never gives you
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:39.050
  • anything that you can't handle.
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:42.060
  • Isn't that good to know?
  • 00:19:42.060 --> 00:19:44.150
  • You can handle whatever
  • 00:19:44.150 --> 00:19:45.170
  • you're facing.
  • 00:19:45.170 --> 00:19:47.210
  • So, what does this teach us?
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:49.080
  • Check out what happens next.
  • 00:19:49.080 --> 00:19:50.110
  • What David does now
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:51.140
  • is so critical.
  • 00:19:51.140 --> 00:19:52.260
  • People kind of blow this part of
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:54.070
  • the Scripture off, but scholars
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.180
  • tell us this was probably one of
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:57.030
  • the most important things David
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:58.180
  • ever did to solidify his career.
  • 00:19:58.180 --> 00:20:01.170
  • Because here's the thing that
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:02.050
  • David didn't realize.
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:03.110
  • He was at the peak
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:05.060
  • of his warrior career.
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:07.240
  • I mean, the guy could just whoop
  • 00:20:07.240 --> 00:20:08.200
  • everybody.
  • 00:20:08.200 --> 00:20:09.160
  • He was unbelievable.
  • 00:20:09.160 --> 00:20:10.100
  • The problem was that was his
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:11.280
  • ceiling, until he made one move
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.200
  • and he turned his ceiling
  • 00:20:13.200 --> 00:20:16.010
  • into his floor.
  • 00:20:16.010 --> 00:20:18.100
  • And that's important because
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:19.190
  • oftentimes, we peak out and
  • 00:20:19.190 --> 00:20:22.100
  • a problem is what helps us
  • 00:20:22.100 --> 00:20:23.200
  • break through to the next level.
  • 00:20:23.200 --> 00:20:25.210
  • It's not good times
  • 00:20:25.210 --> 00:20:26.230
  • that causes us to grow.
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:27.190
  • It's difficult times,
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:29.020
  • it's bad times.
  • 00:20:29.020 --> 00:20:29.250
  • Look what happens next,
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:30.120
  • verse 26.
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:31.080
  • "When David reached Ziklag," so
  • 00:20:31.080 --> 00:20:32.160
  • he gets back home, "he sent
  • 00:20:32.160 --> 00:20:34.050
  • some of the plunder
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:35.140
  • to the elders of Judah."
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:37.010
  • Underline elders.
  • 00:20:37.010 --> 00:20:37.270
  • That means leaders.
  • 00:20:37.270 --> 00:20:39.030
  • "Who were his friends, saying,
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:40.070
  • 'Here is a gift for you from the
  • 00:20:40.070 --> 00:20:41.140
  • plunder of the Lord's enemies.'"
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:42.280
  • It goes on in the Scripture
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:43.260
  • to talk about how he gives.
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:44.210
  • He sent gifts to all these
  • 00:20:44.210 --> 00:20:46.020
  • different regions, all of
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:47.050
  • Israel, all these little
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:48.150
  • outlying posts everywhere.
  • 00:20:48.150 --> 00:20:49.230
  • And let me tell you why that's
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:50.180
  • important, because it was just
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:51.200
  • a matter of time until after
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:52.270
  • this until David was announced
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:53.260
  • the next king.
  • 00:20:53.260 --> 00:20:54.290
  • But you can be announced next
  • 00:20:54.290 --> 00:20:55.240
  • king, but it doesn't mean
  • 00:20:55.240 --> 00:20:57.030
  • everyone agrees with that.
  • 00:20:57.030 --> 00:20:58.100
  • But because he had sent plunder
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:20:59.180
  • to all these different parts--so
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:00.200
  • first of all, he took care of
  • 00:21:00.200 --> 00:21:01.160
  • the problem with the Amalekites,
  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:02.170
  • who had been raiding everyone.
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.220
  • That's the first thing is he
  • 00:21:03.220 --> 00:21:04.120
  • solved the huge problem.
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:05.140
  • Second thing he did was he sent
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:07.190
  • resources to everyone else,
  • 00:21:07.190 --> 00:21:09.030
  • saying, "Hey, we just want
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:09.230
  • to help you out to help
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:10.170
  • you rebuild your city.
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:11.160
  • Because we know Ziklag is
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:12.100
  • broken down, we know your city's
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:13.060
  • broken down too."
  • 00:21:13.060 --> 00:21:14.020
  • And so, he sent it to Hebron,
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:15.080
  • he sent it to Ziklag, he sent
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:16.200
  • to all these different places,
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:17.170
  • right?
  • 00:21:17.170 --> 00:21:18.100
  • And so, then when he became
  • 00:21:18.100 --> 00:21:19.120
  • king, all these other outlying
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:21.050
  • regions said, "You know what?
  • 00:21:21.050 --> 00:21:22.040
  • We like David.
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:24.010
  • We'll accept him as our king."
  • 00:21:24.010 --> 00:21:25.230
  • And so, here's the key is that
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:27.060
  • when you will help enough people
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:28.290
  • get what they want, they will
  • 00:21:28.290 --> 00:21:30.140
  • help you get what you want.
  • 00:21:30.140 --> 00:21:32.230
  • But you have to help enough
  • 00:21:32.230 --> 00:21:33.140
  • people get what they want first.
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:35.180
  • And so, David understood
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:37.120
  • the most powerful thing
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:38.170
  • you can do is listen to others.
  • 00:21:38.170 --> 00:21:40.290
  • And so, this is really
  • 00:21:40.290 --> 00:21:42.030
  • important, number five.
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:43.020
  • Problems cause you to fortify
  • 00:21:43.020 --> 00:21:44.050
  • your life in the areas of
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:45.180
  • possible weakness.
  • 00:21:45.180 --> 00:21:47.000
  • So, what did he do?
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:47.200
  • He sent resources to
  • 00:21:47.200 --> 00:21:48.250
  • all these other towns.
  • 00:21:48.250 --> 00:21:49.200
  • He fortified his own kingdom.
  • 00:21:49.200 --> 00:21:51.220
  • He fortified his own reputation.
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.150
  • He fortified who he was becoming
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:21:55.190
  • by getting everyone on board
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:57.160
  • with him by sending them
  • 00:21:57.160 --> 00:21:58.080
  • a little something.
  • 00:21:58.080 --> 00:21:59.030
  • "I just wanted to send you
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:21:59.200
  • a little something."
  • 00:21:59.200 --> 00:22:00.110
  • You know, a gift does a lot
  • 00:22:00.110 --> 00:22:01.130
  • for someone, by the way.
  • 00:22:01.130 --> 00:22:02.100
  • Just sending someone a little
  • 00:22:02.100 --> 00:22:02.290
  • gift, it's a powerful thing.
  • 00:22:02.290 --> 00:22:04.190
  • If you're not in a regular habit
  • 00:22:04.190 --> 00:22:06.020
  • of giving gifts to people,
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:07.080
  • you know what?
  • 00:22:07.080 --> 00:22:08.050
  • You're probably also not
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:09.100
  • growing in your career.
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:10.260
  • I'm serious.
  • 00:22:10.260 --> 00:22:12.080
  • You ever read a really good
  • 00:22:12.080 --> 00:22:13.030
  • book?
  • 00:22:13.030 --> 00:22:13.190
  • Gift it to someone.
  • 00:22:13.190 --> 00:22:15.010
  • "This book is so powerful."
  • 00:22:15.010 --> 00:22:16.070
  • And so just--you go on Amazon
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:17.190
  • and just send it to them.
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:18.250
  • Just say, "I just you to
  • 00:22:18.250 --> 00:22:19.150
  • just have this.
  • 00:22:19.150 --> 00:22:20.070
  • This really meant a lot to me,
  • 00:22:20.070 --> 00:22:21.050
  • think this'll mean a lot
  • 00:22:21.050 --> 00:22:21.270
  • to you."
  • 00:22:21.270 --> 00:22:22.140
  • Gift it.
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:23.070
  • It's incredible the doors that
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:24.110
  • a gift will open.
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:25.140
  • And so, he just sends gifts.
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:26.170
  • That's all he does.
  • 00:22:26.170 --> 00:22:27.210
  • And it's incredible
  • 00:22:27.210 --> 00:22:28.240
  • the difference that this makes
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:29.270
  • in his life.
  • 00:22:29.270 --> 00:22:30.190
  • David understood,
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:31.070
  • "You know what?
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:31.220
  • I'm tired of fighting everyone.
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:32.200
  • I need to learn to actually
  • 00:22:32.200 --> 00:22:34.050
  • to not--to shift from being
  • 00:22:34.050 --> 00:22:35.170
  • a warrior to being a diplomat.
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:37.190
  • And so I need to--I'm good
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:39.060
  • at conquering people."
  • 00:22:39.060 --> 00:22:40.100
  • And if someone messes with him,
  • 00:22:40.100 --> 00:22:41.110
  • he'll fight you.
  • 00:22:41.110 --> 00:22:42.160
  • But at the same time,
  • 00:22:42.160 --> 00:22:43.090
  • diplomacy can go a long way.
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:46.010
  • And so, he began to realize
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:47.070
  • that, "I'm still a warrior,
  • 00:22:47.070 --> 00:22:48.120
  • but I need to learn to be
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:49.030
  • a diplomat, and basically be
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:51.000
  • a uniter bring people together."
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:53.110
  • And by doing that, he solidified
  • 00:22:53.110 --> 00:22:55.030
  • his opportunity to be
  • 00:22:55.030 --> 00:22:56.230
  • the next king, and he became
  • 00:22:56.230 --> 00:22:58.080
  • the next king because of that.
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.050
  • Could it be that your problem
  • 00:23:00.050 --> 00:23:00.240
  • cause you to solidify an area of
  • 00:23:00.240 --> 00:23:02.280
  • your life that's a little weak?
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:04.260
  • Back in the late 80s,
  • 00:23:04.260 --> 00:23:06.060
  • there was a guy who was
  • 00:23:06.060 --> 00:23:07.180
  • buying up properties
  • 00:23:07.180 --> 00:23:08.130
  • all over middle Tennessee.
  • 00:23:08.130 --> 00:23:10.010
  • Guy was very successful.
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:11.030
  • By the time he was 26 years old,
  • 00:23:11.030 --> 00:23:13.160
  • he had over $4 million in
  • 00:23:13.160 --> 00:23:15.220
  • real estate assets,
  • 00:23:15.220 --> 00:23:16.190
  • and he was worth over a million.
  • 00:23:16.190 --> 00:23:18.200
  • In fact, he was making over
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:20.130
  • $20.000 a month after taxes.
  • 00:23:20.130 --> 00:23:23.010
  • That's a lot of money today,
  • 00:23:23.010 --> 00:23:24.040
  • but even in the late 80s,
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:25.000
  • it was way more even then.
  • 00:23:25.000 --> 00:23:26.150
  • Still a lot of money.
  • 00:23:26.150 --> 00:23:27.260
  • He was doing very well for
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:28.160
  • himself, but he began to take a
  • 00:23:28.160 --> 00:23:30.030
  • lot of kind of unnecessary debt
  • 00:23:30.030 --> 00:23:31.260
  • on because he was doing so well,
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:33.070
  • he had so much cash flow.
  • 00:23:33.070 --> 00:23:34.060
  • He began to take on stupid debt
  • 00:23:34.060 --> 00:23:35.190
  • with boats, and cars,
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:36.180
  • and just stuff, you know, that
  • 00:23:36.180 --> 00:23:37.200
  • was just really unnecessary.
  • 00:23:37.200 --> 00:23:39.100
  • And so, he began to take on all
  • 00:23:39.100 --> 00:23:40.110
  • that debt.
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:41.140
  • Well, then the late 80s,
  • 00:23:41.140 --> 00:23:42.110
  • the real estate crisis hit.
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:43.150
  • Some of you guys remember that.
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:44.230
  • And so, all of a sudden, a lot
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.040
  • of his properties were worth
  • 00:23:46.040 --> 00:23:47.000
  • far less value.
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:48.050
  • The banks began to really hurt
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:49.170
  • and his bank, his main bank, got
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:51.140
  • bought by another larger bank.
  • 00:23:51.140 --> 00:23:54.000
  • Well, then all of
  • 00:23:54.000 --> 00:23:54.280
  • his relationships,
  • 00:23:54.280 --> 00:23:55.230
  • they were no longer there.
  • 00:23:55.230 --> 00:23:56.280
  • And so basically, the larger
  • 00:23:56.280 --> 00:23:57.170
  • bank, those people called him
  • 00:23:57.170 --> 00:23:59.200
  • and said, "We need to pay off
  • 00:23:59.200 --> 00:24:00.160
  • all these dumb debts right now,
  • 00:24:00.160 --> 00:24:01.260
  • all the short-term debts."
  • 00:24:01.260 --> 00:24:03.010
  • He had $1.2 million in dumb
  • 00:24:03.010 --> 00:24:04.140
  • debt, just high interest rate,
  • 00:24:04.140 --> 00:24:06.180
  • stupid stuff like boats
  • 00:24:06.180 --> 00:24:07.150
  • and cars and stuff.
  • 00:24:07.150 --> 00:24:08.230
  • And so, he didn't have
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:09.180
  • the money.
  • 00:24:09.180 --> 00:24:10.170
  • So, he's trying to liquidate
  • 00:24:10.170 --> 00:24:11.220
  • some properties to pay for it,
  • 00:24:11.220 --> 00:24:12.230
  • but the properties had
  • 00:24:12.230 --> 00:24:13.170
  • dropped in value.
  • 00:24:13.170 --> 00:24:14.140
  • Over a two and a half year
  • 00:24:14.140 --> 00:24:15.220
  • period of time,
  • 00:24:15.220 --> 00:24:16.130
  • he lost everything.
  • 00:24:16.130 --> 00:24:18.160
  • Went from four million to zero.
  • 00:24:18.160 --> 00:24:20.280
  • And so, he had to declare
  • 00:24:20.280 --> 00:24:21.240
  • bankruptcy.
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:22.170
  • He was embarrassed.
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:23.050
  • Him and his wife didn't share
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:24.030
  • their problems with anyone.
  • 00:24:24.030 --> 00:24:25.150
  • They just dealt with them
  • 00:24:25.150 --> 00:24:26.140
  • internally.
  • 00:24:26.140 --> 00:24:27.020
  • They were struggling.
  • 00:24:27.020 --> 00:24:27.240
  • They were just--
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:28.110
  • he was falling apart.
  • 00:24:28.110 --> 00:24:29.120
  • You know, he began to cry out to
  • 00:24:29.120 --> 00:24:30.080
  • God, "God, would you help me?
  • 00:24:30.080 --> 00:24:31.240
  • What are you trying to do?
  • 00:24:31.240 --> 00:24:32.190
  • Why is this happening to me?
  • 00:24:32.190 --> 00:24:34.020
  • I mean, of all the people for
  • 00:24:34.020 --> 00:24:35.050
  • them to call my loans, why me?"
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:36.210
  • And he began to really struggle,
  • 00:24:36.210 --> 00:24:37.220
  • and he began to slowly, year by
  • 00:24:37.220 --> 00:24:39.140
  • year, pull himself
  • 00:24:39.140 --> 00:24:40.230
  • out of that debt.
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:41.200
  • And as he went through it, he
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:42.130
  • began to research other people
  • 00:24:42.130 --> 00:24:43.270
  • who had gone through debt
  • 00:24:43.270 --> 00:24:44.240
  • and how to really handle money.
  • 00:24:44.240 --> 00:24:46.020
  • And he wrote a little book on
  • 00:24:46.020 --> 00:24:47.180
  • the experience that him and
  • 00:24:47.180 --> 00:24:48.290
  • his wife had had, and how they
  • 00:24:48.290 --> 00:24:49.280
  • completely pulled themselves out
  • 00:24:49.280 --> 00:24:51.160
  • of bankruptcy, pulled themselves
  • 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:52.230
  • out of debt.
  • 00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:53.170
  • He took that little book and it
  • 00:24:53.170 --> 00:24:55.010
  • got rejected by published
  • 00:24:55.010 --> 00:24:56.200
  • after published after publisher.
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:57.260
  • But eventually, he got
  • 00:24:57.260 --> 00:24:59.150
  • on the radio locally, started
  • 00:24:59.150 --> 00:25:00.130
  • a little local radio show.
  • 00:25:00.130 --> 00:25:02.000
  • And now, Dave Ramsey
  • 00:25:02.000 --> 00:25:03.200
  • is in 500 radio stations
  • 00:25:03.200 --> 00:25:06.070
  • all across America.
  • 00:25:06.070 --> 00:25:07.180
  • That little book became
  • 00:25:07.180 --> 00:25:08.150
  • a New York Times bestseller,
  • 00:25:08.150 --> 00:25:10.090
  • and he has six New York
  • 00:25:10.090 --> 00:25:11.120
  • Times bestsellers.
  • 00:25:11.120 --> 00:25:12.080
  • And he would not be helping
  • 00:25:12.080 --> 00:25:13.230
  • the millions of people he helps
  • 00:25:13.230 --> 00:25:15.070
  • today if it were not for
  • 00:25:15.070 --> 00:25:16.040
  • the problem that he had.
  • 00:25:17.260 --> 00:25:20.260
  • There is great purpose
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:23.000
  • in your problems.
  • 00:25:24.070 --> 00:25:27.070
  • Discover the purpose in your
  • 00:25:27.070 --> 00:25:28.160
  • problem and you'll probably
  • 00:25:28.160 --> 00:25:29.120
  • discover the purpose
  • 00:25:29.120 --> 00:25:31.060
  • in your life.
  • 00:25:31.060 --> 00:25:33.030
  • Problems focus us.
  • 00:25:33.030 --> 00:25:35.090
