  • 00:01:36.876 --> 00:01:40.046
  • Creflo: We've been talking aboutthe grace-given power to change,
  • 00:01:44.250 --> 00:01:49.155
  • the grace-given power to change,grace that has been given to all
  • 00:01:49.189 --> 00:01:53.426
  • of us.
  • 00:01:53.459 --> 00:01:55.261
  • It is what we need to be ableto see change in our lives.
  • 00:01:55.295 --> 00:01:58.498
  • And one of the things that Ibegan to see is that as we began
  • 00:01:58.531 --> 00:02:02.769
  • to realize what Jesus has donefor us, how he's made a way for
  • 00:02:02.802 --> 00:02:06.172
  • us, how he's already done thingsfor us and I kind of wonder,
  • 00:02:06.206 --> 00:02:08.875
  • "Well, why is it that somepeople just won't allow grace to
  • 00:02:08.908 --> 00:02:13.046
  • change them?"
  • 00:02:13.079 --> 00:02:15.081
  • And the answer is 'causethey didn't want to change.
  • 00:02:15.114 --> 00:02:18.451
  • And I began to hear things alittle contrary to what Paul
  • 00:02:18.484 --> 00:02:22.288
  • taught, and that is, you know,using grace as a cover up for
  • 00:02:22.322 --> 00:02:28.094
  • your sin or as anexcuse for your sin.
  • 00:02:28.127 --> 00:02:31.164
  • Basically, a person would livea life of sin and say, "Well,
  • 00:02:31.197 --> 00:02:34.601
  • after all, I'm under grace."
  • 00:02:34.634 --> 00:02:36.703
  • And I dispute that.
  • 00:02:36.736 --> 00:02:38.571
  • I mean, how can you?
  • 00:02:38.605 --> 00:02:40.240
  • Paul says, "How can you continuein sin that grace may abound or
  • 00:02:40.273 --> 00:02:43.576
  • increase in your life?"
  • 00:02:43.610 --> 00:02:45.511
  • And so one of the things thatI've realized is that grace
  • 00:02:45.545 --> 00:02:47.981
  • doesn't cover sin.
  • 00:02:48.014 --> 00:02:50.316
  • It changes you anddelivers you from it.
  • 00:02:50.350 --> 00:02:53.653
  • It changes you.
  • 00:02:53.686 --> 00:02:55.388
  • Titus chapter 2 begins to talkabout how grace will teach you
  • 00:02:55.421 --> 00:02:58.691
  • how to live a soundand a godly life.
  • 00:02:58.725 --> 00:03:03.396
  • But this message is not for usto say, "Well, now that I know
  • 00:03:03.429 --> 00:03:06.432
  • about Jesus--"
  • 00:03:06.466 --> 00:03:08.167
  • Because that would--that'swhat grace is about.
  • 00:03:08.201 --> 00:03:10.336
  • "Now that I know about Jesus,hey, you know, I don't have to
  • 00:03:10.370 --> 00:03:13.172
  • feel bad anymore."
  • 00:03:13.206 --> 00:03:14.907
  • And he don't wantyou to feel bad.
  • 00:03:14.941 --> 00:03:16.776
  • "I don't have to feelcondemned anymore."
  • 00:03:16.809 --> 00:03:18.511
  • His grace will deliver youfrom that condemnation.
  • 00:03:18.544 --> 00:03:20.913
  • But if you're still the same,I don't think you've discovered
  • 00:03:20.947 --> 00:03:23.483
  • what this grace is because ifgrace will do anything, first,
  • 00:03:23.516 --> 00:03:27.120
  • it'll start impactingyour life first.
  • 00:03:27.153 --> 00:03:30.356
  • And what grace will do, itwon't lead you to this place of
  • 00:03:30.390 --> 00:03:33.226
  • perfection where you say, "Well,I don't need God anymore."
  • 00:03:33.259 --> 00:03:35.728
  • Grace will bring you to a placewhere you will realize everyday
  • 00:03:35.762 --> 00:03:38.231
  • how much you do need God, amen?
  • 00:03:38.264 --> 00:03:42.201
  • 'Cause it's allabout what he's done.
  • 00:03:42.235 --> 00:03:44.737
  • It's not about what you coulddo, it's about what he's already
  • 00:03:44.771 --> 00:03:46.906
  • done, and then you decidingto have faith in that.
  • 00:03:46.939 --> 00:03:50.943
  • But change isn't changeuntil it's changed.
  • 00:03:50.977 --> 00:03:54.681
  • You can talk about how much youwant to change, you can say,
  • 00:03:54.714 --> 00:03:57.083
  • "I've been praying aboutchange," but change isn't change
  • 00:03:57.116 --> 00:04:00.053
  • until it's changed.
  • 00:04:00.086 --> 00:04:02.422
  • And so grace is thatGod-given power.
  • 00:04:02.455 --> 00:04:06.459
  • You've always had the power tochange after you got born again.
  • 00:04:06.492 --> 00:04:10.330
  • You've always had the power.
  • 00:04:10.363 --> 00:04:12.098
  • But I just--I meet peoplesometime and they just don't
  • 00:04:12.131 --> 00:04:14.434
  • want to.
  • 00:04:14.467 --> 00:04:16.069
  • They're just not--"
  • 00:04:16.102 --> 00:04:17.770
  • I am what I am, andI ain't going to--"
  • 00:04:17.804 --> 00:04:19.472
  • Whatever.
  • 00:04:19.505 --> 00:04:21.274
  • But you always you--when--sinceyou've been saved, he has given
  • 00:04:21.307 --> 00:04:23.710
  • you--it's like God-given powerto see change in your life.
  • 00:04:23.743 --> 00:04:27.847
  • And so we've beentalking about that.
  • 00:04:27.880 --> 00:04:30.683
  • I think it would--probablysince we had been together for
  • 00:04:30.717 --> 00:04:33.319
  • a minute.
  • 00:04:33.353 --> 00:04:35.588
  • The first step in this changeprocess we talked about is,
  • 00:04:35.621 --> 00:04:38.091
  • number one, out of Johnchapter 5 and 5 through 6.
  • 00:04:38.124 --> 00:04:40.827
  • You got to have adesire to change.
  • 00:04:40.860 --> 00:04:42.995
  • You got to want to change.
  • 00:04:43.029 --> 00:04:44.997
  • And like I said before, yourjob is not to change people.
  • 00:04:45.031 --> 00:04:48.568
  • My job is not to change people.
  • 00:04:48.601 --> 00:04:50.336
  • Our job is to love people.
  • 00:04:50.370 --> 00:04:52.171
  • God's job is tochange people, amen?
  • 00:04:52.205 --> 00:04:53.940
  • You love them and then you trustin God, and if they--when they
  • 00:04:53.973 --> 00:04:56.976
  • ready to change and when theywant to change, they have to
  • 00:04:57.009 --> 00:04:59.579
  • have that desire to change andthen they'll begin to see it.
  • 00:04:59.612 --> 00:05:02.648
  • And so we talked about threereasons why people don't desire
  • 00:05:02.682 --> 00:05:05.151
  • to change.
  • 00:05:05.184 --> 00:05:06.953
  • And so we went to the secondarea, number two, stop
  • 00:05:06.986 --> 00:05:12.859
  • making excuses.
  • 00:05:12.892 --> 00:05:15.261
  • In other words, a lot of peopledon't change 'cause they keep
  • 00:05:15.294 --> 00:05:17.497
  • making excuses.
  • 00:05:17.530 --> 00:05:19.298
  • And I said to you I think thatexcuses are nothing, but houses
  • 00:05:19.332 --> 00:05:25.171
  • built out of nails--excuses arenothing but nails used to build
  • 00:05:25.204 --> 00:05:28.174
  • houses of failure.
  • 00:05:28.207 --> 00:05:29.976
  • 'Cause wherever you findexcuses, you're going to
  • 00:05:30.009 --> 00:05:31.944
  • find failure.
  • 00:05:31.978 --> 00:05:33.946
  • And so no more excuses.
  • 00:05:33.980 --> 00:05:36.516
  • No more making excusesfor not changing.
  • 00:05:36.549 --> 00:05:39.218
  • Number three, we talked aboutactions; learning how to take
  • 00:05:39.252 --> 00:05:42.488
  • immediate action and stopprocrastinating where your
  • 00:05:42.522 --> 00:05:45.691
  • change is concerned.
  • 00:05:45.725 --> 00:05:47.260
  • We keep putting it off, puttingit off, putting it off, putting
  • 00:05:47.293 --> 00:05:49.295
  • it off.
  • 00:05:49.328 --> 00:05:51.397
  • And we've got to be carefulbecause, you know, there are
  • 00:05:51.431 --> 00:05:54.500
  • consequences for what we do.
  • 00:05:54.534 --> 00:05:56.502
  • Maybe you--God still loves youand you still love him in the
  • 00:05:56.536 --> 00:05:58.838
  • vertical but in the horizontal,then there are consequences
  • 00:05:58.871 --> 00:06:03.142
  • for sin.
  • 00:06:03.176 --> 00:06:04.977
  • Sin has consequencesin a person's life.
  • 00:06:05.011 --> 00:06:07.447
  • And then number four, we beganto talk about perception.
  • 00:06:07.480 --> 00:06:12.151
  • It's how you see yourself.
  • 00:06:12.185 --> 00:06:15.354
  • And so we challenge you in thatteaching to--in order for you to
  • 00:06:15.388 --> 00:06:19.926
  • change, you got to change theway you see yourself, you got to
  • 00:06:19.959 --> 00:06:22.695
  • change your perceptionof yourself.
  • 00:06:22.728 --> 00:06:25.531
  • You got to stopreplaying your mistakes.
  • 00:06:25.565 --> 00:06:28.067
  • You got to stop seeingyourself as a failure.
  • 00:06:28.100 --> 00:06:30.503
  • You got to renew your mind tothe new creation that you have
  • 00:06:30.536 --> 00:06:34.106
  • as a result of making Jesusthe Lord of your life.
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:37.710
  • You got to deal withinferiority, all of
  • 00:06:37.743 --> 00:06:39.312
  • those things.
  • 00:06:39.345 --> 00:06:41.113
  • And then I think, number five,we talked about never go back;
  • 00:06:41.147 --> 00:06:45.017
  • learning how important it is notto keep going back to the very
  • 00:06:45.051 --> 00:06:49.255
  • thing that Goddelivered you out of.
  • 00:06:49.288 --> 00:06:51.557
  • We studied that from a Scripturethat said--God says, "Listen, I
  • 00:06:51.591 --> 00:06:54.727
  • delivered you and healed youwhile you had sin in your life."
  • 00:06:54.760 --> 00:07:00.066
  • He says, "So, you know, don'ttell me that you had to be
  • 00:07:00.099 --> 00:07:05.071
  • perfect for me to deliver you.
  • 00:07:05.104 --> 00:07:06.772
  • You had issueswhen I healed you."
  • 00:07:06.806 --> 00:07:09.008
  • He said, "But don't keep goingback lest you make matters
  • 00:07:09.041 --> 00:07:11.944
  • worst," you know.
  • 00:07:11.978 --> 00:07:14.547
  • I don't know if youknow anybody like that.
  • 00:07:14.580 --> 00:07:16.282
  • They just keep going backand making matters worse.
  • 00:07:16.315 --> 00:07:19.986
  • God delivers them,they go back to it.
  • 00:07:20.019 --> 00:07:21.721
  • God sets them free,they go back to it.
  • 00:07:21.754 --> 00:07:23.856
  • And that can mean sometoxic relationships.
  • 00:07:23.890 --> 00:07:26.893
  • He delivers you out ofit, you go back to it.
  • 00:07:26.926 --> 00:07:29.395
  • He delivers you out of somesubstance abuse,
  • 00:07:29.428 --> 00:07:31.564
  • you go back to it.
  • 00:07:31.597 --> 00:07:33.766
  • And in that lesson, we talkedabout never going back.
  • 00:07:33.799 --> 00:07:36.936
  • Turn to your neighborand say, "Never go back."
  • 00:07:36.969 --> 00:07:39.939
  • And so tonight we're going topick up with number six, the
  • 00:07:39.972 --> 00:07:45.111
  • grace-given power to change.
  • 00:07:45.144 --> 00:07:47.480
  • What do we need todo in number six?
  • 00:07:47.513 --> 00:07:49.615
  • Number six involves stop waitingfor someone else to do it.
  • 00:07:49.649 --> 00:07:54.353
  • In other words, when change isinvolved, somehow we get into
  • 00:07:54.387 --> 00:07:59.025
  • this thing where we're kind ofwaiting for somebody else to
  • 00:07:59.058 --> 00:08:01.193
  • do it.
  • 00:08:01.227 --> 00:08:02.929
  • We're waiting onsomeone else to arrive.
  • 00:08:02.962 --> 00:08:05.064
  • I mean, we've got to stop that.
  • 00:08:05.097 --> 00:08:07.066
  • We've got to stop waiting forsomeone to change before
  • 00:08:07.099 --> 00:08:09.335
  • you change.
  • 00:08:09.368 --> 00:08:11.003
  • You got to stop waiting forsomebody to help you change.
  • 00:08:11.037 --> 00:08:13.506
  • This principle is particularlyrelevant to people that are
  • 00:08:13.539 --> 00:08:16.976
  • married and are constantly usingtheir marriage as an excuse as
  • 00:08:17.009 --> 00:08:23.049
  • to why they haven't changed.
  • 00:08:23.082 --> 00:08:25.685
  • "Well, as soon as my husbandchanges, I'll change.
  • 00:08:25.718 --> 00:08:28.654
  • As soon as my wifechanges, then I'll change.
  • 00:08:28.688 --> 00:08:32.391
  • And as soon as my wife beginsto do what she's supposed to do,
  • 00:08:32.425 --> 00:08:36.262
  • then I'll do whatI'm supposed to do."
  • 00:08:36.295 --> 00:08:37.997
  • You got to get away from that.
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.465
  • You got to quit puttingthat on other people.
  • 00:08:39.498 --> 00:08:41.534
  • People often say, you know,"Well, if I'm going to change,
  • 00:08:41.567 --> 00:08:45.605
  • who will help me?"
  • 00:08:45.638 --> 00:08:47.740
  • You're waiting on somebody else.
  • 00:08:47.773 --> 00:08:50.576
  • You're putting it on somebodyelse where you'll change.
  • 00:08:50.610 --> 00:08:52.778
  • What do you meanwho will help you?
  • 00:08:52.812 --> 00:08:54.981
  • "Well, I needsomebody to help me."
  • 00:08:55.014 --> 00:08:56.849
  • You remember the guy who keptcomplaining about, "I don't have
  • 00:08:56.882 --> 00:08:59.151
  • nobody to help me in the water."
  • 00:08:59.185 --> 00:09:01.454
  • I mean, if Jesus came andsaid, "Your healing is there.
  • 00:09:01.487 --> 00:09:03.389
  • Dude, you can roll.
  • 00:09:03.422 --> 00:09:05.257
  • Roll yourself in the water."
  • 00:09:05.291 --> 00:09:07.426
  • You know, 'cause you'regoing to be able to get out.
  • 00:09:07.460 --> 00:09:10.096
  • You can't wait forsomeone to do it for you.
  • 00:09:10.129 --> 00:09:12.198
  • God is your sourceand he will help you.
  • 00:09:12.231 --> 00:09:15.334
  • Say out loud, "God is mysource and he is my help."
  • 00:09:15.368 --> 00:09:20.039
  • You must take the first step.
  • 00:09:20.072 --> 00:09:22.174
  • It begins, ladies and gentlemen,with something so powerful that
  • 00:09:22.208 --> 00:09:25.645
  • we're going to talk about here.
  • 00:09:25.678 --> 00:09:28.147
  • I'm really going to show yousomething about your mouth and
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:31.751
  • I'm going to show youwhere that derives from.
  • 00:09:31.784 --> 00:09:33.853
  • I'm going to showyou about your mouth.
  • 00:09:33.886 --> 00:09:35.688
  • I'm going to show youabout your reactions.
  • 00:09:35.721 --> 00:09:40.292
  • We do a lot ofcontradicting in our lives.
  • 00:09:40.326 --> 00:09:43.062
  • We say, "Oh yeah, I believe,"but we react like we don't.
  • 00:09:43.095 --> 00:09:48.934
  • And we got to be careful not touse our mouth as like a
  • 00:09:48.968 --> 00:09:54.473
  • magic stick.
  • 00:09:54.507 --> 00:09:57.143
  • So we got to understand thiswhole deal where confession fits
  • 00:09:57.176 --> 00:10:01.313
  • in and where it comes out of.
  • 00:10:01.347 --> 00:10:04.417
  • I want to start in 2 Corinthianschapter 4 and verse 13, and I
  • 00:10:04.450 --> 00:10:10.056
  • want to show you how the heartand the mouth goes together.
  • 00:10:10.089 --> 00:10:13.826
  • And if you are ready to seechange in your life, I'm going
  • 00:10:13.859 --> 00:10:18.631
  • to show you how you can stopwaiting for someone else in
  • 00:10:18.664 --> 00:10:22.034
  • order for you to do it.
  • 00:10:22.068 --> 00:10:23.936
  • But this is really--changeis really waiting on you.
  • 00:10:23.969 --> 00:10:27.440
  • Change is waiting on you.
  • 00:10:27.473 --> 00:10:29.975
  • You have to be the change.
  • 00:10:30.009 --> 00:10:32.378
  • It's waiting on you.
  • 00:10:32.411 --> 00:10:34.113
  • You can no longerwait on somebody else.
  • 00:10:34.146 --> 00:10:36.549
  • Change is waiting on you.
  • 00:10:36.582 --> 00:10:39.051
  • Now, here's what I'dlike to start with here.
  • 00:10:39.085 --> 00:10:41.153
  • He says, "We having the samespirit of faith, according as it
  • 00:10:41.187 --> 00:10:43.956
  • is written, I believed andtherefore have I spoken.
  • 00:10:43.989 --> 00:10:49.595
  • We also believe andtherefore we speak."
  • 00:10:49.628 --> 00:10:54.567
  • Now, according to thisScripture, notice what
  • 00:10:54.600 --> 00:10:56.268
  • comes first.
  • 00:10:56.302 --> 00:10:57.603
  • He says believe first, andnotice that speaking comes as a
  • 00:10:57.636 --> 00:11:01.841
  • result of your--ofwhat you believe.
  • 00:11:01.874 --> 00:11:04.910
  • In other words, what you say isgoing to be based on what
  • 00:11:04.944 --> 00:11:07.313
  • you believe.
  • 00:11:07.346 --> 00:11:09.381
  • So likewise, when you saysomething that's in unbelief,
  • 00:11:09.415 --> 00:11:15.921
  • you've told me what you don'tbelieve because I believe and
  • 00:11:15.955 --> 00:11:22.027
  • therefore I speak.
  • 00:11:22.061 --> 00:11:24.864
  • So we have to spend moretime when it comes to change
  • 00:11:24.897 --> 00:11:27.900
  • evaluating what isit that we believe.
  • 00:11:27.933 --> 00:11:31.237
  • Do we believe inthe blood of Jesus?
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:33.305
  • Do we believe that grace hasgiven us the power to change?
  • 00:11:33.339 --> 00:11:38.911
  • Do we believe?
  • 00:11:38.944 --> 00:11:40.713
  • Because if you don't believethat, it's a sounding board.
  • 00:11:40.746 --> 00:11:42.882
  • All we have to do is listen toyou and that becomes authentic
  • 00:11:42.915 --> 00:11:48.254
  • evidence of what you believe.
  • 00:11:48.287 --> 00:11:51.590
  • I preach that tomyself sometimes.
  • 00:11:51.624 --> 00:11:53.659
  • When something happens inmy life and it moves me
  • 00:11:53.692 --> 00:11:57.062
  • emotionally, I preach that.
  • 00:11:57.096 --> 00:12:00.166
  • I say to myself, "If you reallybelieved, then why are you
  • 00:12:00.199 --> 00:12:04.270
  • reacting like this?"
  • 00:12:04.303 --> 00:12:06.605
  • Y'all understandwhat I'm saying?
  • 00:12:06.639 --> 00:12:08.507
  • If your bel--your reactiondoesn't indicate that you
  • 00:12:08.541 --> 00:12:10.075
  • really believe.
  • 00:12:10.109 --> 00:12:12.444
  • And before I hold anybody elseresponsible for it, I want to
  • 00:12:12.478 --> 00:12:15.915
  • hold myself responsible for it.
  • 00:12:15.948 --> 00:12:18.217
  • You're lying up in bed and youcan't go to sleep and you call
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.452
  • yourself a believer.
  • 00:12:20.486 --> 00:12:22.555
  • And I'm like, "Creflo Dollar, ifyou really believe, you would be
  • 00:12:22.588 --> 00:12:25.324
  • snoring right now.
  • 00:12:25.357 --> 00:12:27.159
  • What's up, what's the problem?"
  • 00:12:27.193 --> 00:12:29.094
  • So when I find that I have abelief issue, I'm going to do
  • 00:12:29.128 --> 00:12:31.730
  • one or two things.
  • 00:12:31.764 --> 00:12:33.265
  • Number one, I'm going to calla fast, if it is that bad; or
  • 00:12:33.299 --> 00:12:36.635
  • number two, I'm going tospend more time in the Word on
  • 00:12:36.669 --> 00:12:39.205
  • whatever I'm havingproblems believing.
  • 00:12:39.238 --> 00:12:41.574
  • Though a Word deficit will allowyou to be ruled by your emotions
  • 00:12:41.607 --> 00:12:45.311
  • instead of being ledby the Spirit of God.
  • 00:12:45.344 --> 00:12:48.380
  • And so I'm alwayschallenging myself with that.
  • 00:12:48.414 --> 00:12:50.716
  • It appears like it'sgetting a lot better.
  • 00:12:50.749 --> 00:12:53.118
  • There's things that arehappening and I say, "Okay, just
  • 00:12:53.152 --> 00:12:55.888
  • a small adjustment needed.
  • 00:12:55.921 --> 00:12:57.656
  • Praise God we're all right."
  • 00:12:57.690 --> 00:13:00.025
  • That's indicating my heartnow is in the right place.
  • 00:13:00.059 --> 00:13:02.695
  • I believe in the finishedworks of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:02.728 --> 00:13:05.231
  • I believe it's done.
  • 00:13:05.264 --> 00:13:06.799
  • I believe he's perfectingeverything that concerneth me.
  • 00:13:06.832 --> 00:13:09.401
  • And so my responses will becomeevidence of what I believe.
  • 00:13:09.435 --> 00:13:14.306
  • Well, because I'm a human,sometimes something happen that
  • 00:13:14.340 --> 00:13:17.142
  • completely blows my mind.
  • 00:13:17.176 --> 00:13:19.712
  • And I'm just blown away becausesomething like that happened,
  • 00:13:19.745 --> 00:13:22.982
  • but then I have to still trainmyself and say, "You know what?
  • 00:13:23.015 --> 00:13:25.985
  • Even though thathappened, it's cool.
  • 00:13:26.018 --> 00:13:29.555
  • No problem."
  • 00:13:29.588 --> 00:13:31.590
  • I used to freak out whenI was raising my girls.
  • 00:13:31.624 --> 00:13:33.726
  • I forgot which one it was,but we had just moved and she
  • 00:13:33.759 --> 00:13:36.629
  • decided to take a black ink penand just start drawing on
  • 00:13:36.662 --> 00:13:41.300
  • the walls.
  • 00:13:41.333 --> 00:13:43.002
  • I couldn't believe it.
  • 00:13:43.035 --> 00:13:44.703
  • I thought, "What in the world?"
  • 00:13:44.737 --> 00:13:47.907
  • And then I'm like,"Well, she's a kid.
  • 00:13:47.940 --> 00:13:49.775
  • She don't know."
  • 00:13:49.808 --> 00:13:51.176
  • "You didn't get me paperso I used the wall."
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:53.212
  • And she drew on the walls andshe drew on the door and all
  • 00:13:53.245 --> 00:13:55.381
  • that, and I'm thinking--I'mtreating it like it is
  • 00:13:55.414 --> 00:13:59.718
  • permanent damage.
  • 00:13:59.752 --> 00:14:01.954
  • It's not permanent damage.
  • 00:14:01.987 --> 00:14:03.389
  • Paint.
  • 00:14:03.422 --> 00:14:05.724
  • It's no big deal.
  • 00:14:05.758 --> 00:14:07.326
  • Paint.
  • 00:14:07.359 --> 00:14:09.061
  • There's nothing in the house.
  • 00:14:09.094 --> 00:14:10.562
  • I'm sure you guys had folks overfor Christmas and stuff
  • 00:14:10.596 --> 00:14:12.665
  • like that.
  • 00:14:12.698 --> 00:14:14.233
  • They were running everywhere,and I had to tell myself--now,
  • 00:14:14.266 --> 00:14:16.568
  • if I didn't want them somewhere,I had to lock the door.
  • 00:14:16.602 --> 00:14:20.839
  • My little man cave, I locked thedoor on that one, so--
  • 00:14:20.873 --> 00:14:26.245
  • Can we please get in?"
  • 00:14:26.278 --> 00:14:28.280
  • "No."
  • 00:14:28.314 --> 00:14:29.882
  • My mama would tell us no,"That ain't going to open
  • 00:14:29.915 --> 00:14:31.984
  • today, baby, it ain'tgoing to open today."
  • 00:14:32.017 --> 00:14:34.386
  • And I just had to tell myself,"There is nothing that can
  • 00:14:34.420 --> 00:14:37.556
  • happen that cannotbe taken care of."
  • 00:14:37.589 --> 00:14:42.261
  • You know, the same thingis true about our lives.
  • 00:14:42.294 --> 00:14:44.463
  • Whatever happens in your life,there's nothing that can ever
  • 00:14:44.496 --> 00:14:47.433
  • happen in your life that Jesushadn't already taken care of.
  • 00:14:47.466 --> 00:14:52.838
  • And you know what that does?
  • 00:14:52.871 --> 00:14:54.239
  • That brings you peace,but it does more.
  • 00:14:54.273 --> 00:14:55.708
  • It reaffirms the confidence thatyou say you have in the finished
  • 00:14:55.741 --> 00:14:59.044
  • work of Jesus.
  • 00:14:59.078 --> 00:15:00.946
  • So pay attentionto your reactions.
  • 00:15:00.980 --> 00:15:03.115
  • Pay attention to whatcomes out of your mouth.
  • 00:15:03.148 --> 00:15:05.617
  • Pay attention to whatkeeps you up at night.
  • 00:15:05.651 --> 00:15:09.154
  • Praise God because I'm tellingyou all is well, and it will be
  • 00:15:09.188 --> 00:15:14.259
  • evidence in how youchoose to react.
  • 00:15:14.293 --> 00:15:16.428
  • So we're no longer just talkingabout a bunch of church folks
  • 00:15:16.462 --> 00:15:19.231
  • saying, you know,religious sayings.
  • 00:15:19.264 --> 00:15:22.801
  • "Oh yes, brother, I believe."
  • 00:15:22.835 --> 00:15:24.436
  • And just let something happen.
  • 00:15:24.470 --> 00:15:26.438
  • Then all of a sudden, it's gone.
  • 00:15:26.472 --> 00:15:27.773
  • "Oh, I have thejoy of the Lord."
  • 00:15:27.806 --> 00:15:29.108
  • Go outside and see a flat tireand you'll lose your joy in
  • 00:15:29.141 --> 00:15:31.076
  • a moment, amen?
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:33.512
  • That's--listen, this--thesethings are not being said to you
  • 00:15:33.545 --> 00:15:36.882
  • to bring about condemnation ormake you feel bad, these things
  • 00:15:36.915 --> 00:15:40.352
  • are being said to you so you canconstantly remind yourself of
  • 00:15:40.386 --> 00:15:44.023
  • your greater needfor Jesus every day.
  • 00:15:44.056 --> 00:15:47.659
  • I don't want to ever stand uphere in perfection where I have
  • 00:15:47.693 --> 00:15:51.063
  • no need for him.
  • 00:15:51.096 --> 00:15:53.232
  • If I could ever stand up herewith perfection where I have no
  • 00:15:53.265 --> 00:15:55.367
  • need for him, I'min a bad place.
  • 00:15:55.401 --> 00:15:58.470
  • I always want to be in a placewhere I can look at my life and
  • 00:15:58.504 --> 00:16:02.141
  • say, "I need you here,I need you here.
  • 00:16:02.174 --> 00:16:05.811
  • I need you, I need you,I need you."
  • 00:16:05.844 --> 00:16:08.080
  • I want to need him all the time.
  • 00:16:08.113 --> 00:16:11.383
  • That's powerful right there.
  • 00:16:11.417 --> 00:16:13.118
  • That's a powerful place tobe in, where you need him.
  • 00:16:13.152 --> 00:16:15.654
  • So notice he says believe first,and then speaking comes as a
  • 00:16:15.687 --> 00:16:19.224
  • fruit of what youbelieve in a sense.
  • 00:16:19.258 --> 00:16:23.495
  • Speaking comes as anoffspring of what you believe.
  • 00:16:23.529 --> 00:16:26.465
  • I'm trying to challenge youversus, "Well, I'm going to say
  • 00:16:26.498 --> 00:16:31.203
  • it 50 times and then I'm goingto make something happen."
  • 00:16:31.236 --> 00:16:34.106
  • And you're saying something 50times that ain't even in your
  • 00:16:34.139 --> 00:16:36.275
  • heart one time.
  • 00:16:36.308 --> 00:16:38.610
  • You follow what I'm saying?
  • 00:16:38.644 --> 00:16:40.245
  • You're saying it 50 times, butit ain't in your heart one time.
  • 00:16:40.279 --> 00:16:42.514
  • You're praying, "If I can say itenough, it'll get in my heart."
  • 00:16:42.548 --> 00:16:45.217
  • And there's a way where speakingis called a form of meditating
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:48.654
  • the Word.
  • 00:16:48.687 --> 00:16:50.089
  • Meditating the Word day andnight, you can--when you speak
  • 00:16:50.122 --> 00:16:52.958
  • the Word, you meditate the Word.
  • 00:16:52.991 --> 00:16:55.127
  • So that has a place.
  • 00:16:55.160 --> 00:16:57.463
  • But I want you to understandyour heart condition will
  • 00:16:57.496 --> 00:17:01.600
  • determine your confessionharvest because all confession
  • 00:17:01.633 --> 00:17:07.005
  • is, is bringing what'sin your heart out.
  • 00:17:07.039 --> 00:17:12.311
  • So if there's--if it's notin the heart when you say it,
  • 00:17:12.344 --> 00:17:16.014
  • we--you just transfer thereality of what's really in
  • 00:17:16.048 --> 00:17:21.286
  • your heart.
  • 00:17:21.320 --> 00:17:23.222
  • Because the heart is kind oflike the fishing line that you
  • 00:17:23.255 --> 00:17:26.425
  • throw in the pond, you relayit back up, it's only--you only
  • 00:17:26.458 --> 00:17:30.062
  • going to catchwhat's in the pond.
  • 00:17:30.095 --> 00:17:32.931
  • I said you only going tocatch what's in the pond.
  • 00:17:32.965 --> 00:17:35.501
  • And so that's a formof admitting something.
  • 00:17:35.534 --> 00:17:37.636
  • So I want to lookat that tonight.
  • 00:17:37.669 --> 00:17:39.338
  • Look at Matthewchapter 12, verse 34.
  • 00:17:39.371 --> 00:17:41.773
  • This issue of it being in myheart because I believe with
  • 00:17:41.807 --> 00:17:44.710
  • all my heart that we don't needto wait on somebody else
  • 00:17:44.743 --> 00:17:48.914
  • to do it for us.
  • 00:17:48.947 --> 00:17:50.315
  • We have the ability.
  • 00:17:50.349 --> 00:17:51.850
  • Grace has given usthe ability to change.
  • 00:17:51.884 --> 00:17:54.219
  • This is very interestinghere in verse 34.
  • 00:17:54.253 --> 00:17:56.922
  • He says, "O generationof vipers--"
  • 00:17:56.955 --> 00:18:00.058
  • Boy, that's hard.
  • 00:18:00.092 --> 00:18:02.928
  • Called you snakes.
  • 00:18:02.961 --> 00:18:05.397
  • "How can you being evil--"
  • 00:18:05.430 --> 00:18:07.432
  • This is a veryinteresting question.
  • 00:18:07.466 --> 00:18:09.268
  • "How can you, beingevil, speak good things?"
  • 00:18:09.301 --> 00:18:13.172
  • Listen to what he's saying.
  • 00:18:13.205 --> 00:18:15.040
  • He's saying, "How can you beevil and speak good things?"
  • 00:18:15.073 --> 00:18:18.076
  • He says, "For out of theabundance of the heart--"
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:21.647
  • What works out of theabundance of the heart?
  • 00:18:21.680 --> 00:18:24.249
  • The mouth.
  • 00:18:24.283 --> 00:18:25.951
  • The mouth is only speaking outof the abundance of the heart.
  • 00:18:25.984 --> 00:18:29.855
  • So the abundance of your heartreally generates the honest
  • 00:18:29.888 --> 00:18:35.794
  • confession of your mouth.
  • 00:18:35.827 --> 00:18:38.564
  • You know, I told you thatspeaking can be a form of
  • 00:18:38.597 --> 00:18:41.233
  • meditation to get it in yourheart, but you can't confuse
  • 00:18:41.266 --> 00:18:44.736
  • the two.
  • 00:18:44.770 --> 00:18:46.071
  • Out of the abundance of yourheart, the mouth is going to
  • 00:18:46.104 --> 00:18:48.307
  • speak the truth of your heart.
  • 00:18:48.340 --> 00:18:50.776
  • Your mouth is going to speakthe truth of your heart.
  • 00:18:50.809 --> 00:18:54.079
  • And somebody says,"Well, how will I know?"
  • 00:18:54.112 --> 00:18:56.348
  • When the pressure is applied,what's in you is going to
  • 00:18:56.381 --> 00:18:58.951
  • flow out.
  • 00:18:58.984 --> 00:19:00.385
  • You want to get juiceout of an orange?
  • 00:19:00.419 --> 00:19:01.787
  • Put pressure on it.
  • 00:19:01.820 --> 00:19:03.288
  • Whatever's in the orange iswhat's going to come out, and
  • 00:19:03.322 --> 00:19:05.424
  • that's where we gotto be successful.
  • 00:19:05.457 --> 00:19:07.259
  • It's when the pressure comes on,the right kind of juice has got
  • 00:19:07.292 --> 00:19:09.962
  • to come out.
  • 00:19:09.995 --> 00:19:11.597
  • But look what he saysin the next verse.
  • 00:19:11.630 --> 00:19:13.232
  • He says, "Out of theabundance, the mouth speak."
  • 00:19:13.265 --> 00:19:15.100
  • Verse 35, he says, "A good manout of the good treasures of
  • 00:19:15.133 --> 00:19:18.704
  • the," what?
  • 00:19:18.737 --> 00:19:20.339
  • Heart.
  • 00:19:20.372 --> 00:19:21.807
  • What does he bring forth?
  • 00:19:21.840 --> 00:19:23.408
  • "Bring forth good things."
  • 00:19:23.442 --> 00:19:24.977
  • Your confession iswhat brings it forth.
  • 00:19:25.010 --> 00:19:27.012
  • It brings forth--youbring forth good things.
  • 00:19:27.045 --> 00:19:28.981
  • "And a evil man out of the eviltreasures of his heart bringeth
  • 00:19:29.014 --> 00:19:31.516
  • forth," what?
  • 00:19:31.550 --> 00:19:33.051
  • "Evil things."
  • 00:19:33.085 --> 00:19:34.519
  • Verse 36, "But I say unto youthat every idle word that men
  • 00:19:34.553 --> 00:19:37.422
  • shall speak, they shall giveaccount thereof in the day
  • 00:19:37.456 --> 00:19:40.359
  • of judgment."
  • 00:19:40.392 --> 00:19:41.994
  • And, you know, we'll talkabout--the main ones is I wanted
  • 00:19:42.027 --> 00:19:44.429
  • you to see the mechanicsof heart-mouth connection.
  • 00:19:44.463 --> 00:19:48.367
  • That evil heart, good heart, themouth speaks out of the heart.
  • 00:19:48.400 --> 00:19:53.639
  • I like the way I just said that.
  • 00:19:53.672 --> 00:19:56.341
  • The mouth speaksout of the heart.
  • 00:19:56.375 --> 00:19:58.910
  • The mouth speaksout of the heart.
  • 00:19:58.944 --> 00:20:01.513
  • You need to write that down.
  • 00:20:01.546 --> 00:20:03.048
  • That's a really--you know, Itold you before, most of the
  • 00:20:03.081 --> 00:20:04.850
  • time I'm teaching, I'm searchingfor the right way to articulate
  • 00:20:04.883 --> 00:20:06.918
  • something that I'm seeing.
  • 00:20:06.952 --> 00:20:09.288
  • And the mouth speaksout of the heart.
  • 00:20:09.321 --> 00:20:12.024
  • Out of the things of theheart, the mouth speaks.
  • 00:20:12.057 --> 00:20:14.593
  • So it's simply saying to us ifwe want to change, and I've been
  • 00:20:14.626 --> 00:20:19.264
  • trying to say this a lot ofdifferent ways, we've got to see
  • 00:20:19.298 --> 00:20:22.968
  • change inwardly.
  • 00:20:23.001 --> 00:20:24.569
  • It's got to be genuine change.
  • 00:20:24.603 --> 00:20:26.371
  • It's got to be authentic change.
  • 00:20:26.405 --> 00:20:28.340
  • It's got to be the changethat comes as a result of your
  • 00:20:28.373 --> 00:20:30.642
  • one-on-one relationship withGod, your genuine relationship
  • 00:20:30.676 --> 00:20:33.979
  • with God, not you'regoing to church.
  • 00:20:34.012 --> 00:20:36.214
  • That's cool.That's helpful.
  • 00:20:36.248 --> 00:20:38.283
  • That can be a part of theitinerary, but it's really that
  • 00:20:38.317 --> 00:20:41.119
  • everyday relationship that youhave with God for no benefits
  • 00:20:41.153 --> 00:20:45.123
  • at all.
  • 00:20:45.157 --> 00:20:46.692
  • You're not having therelationship so you can
  • 00:20:46.725 --> 00:20:48.260
  • show out.
  • 00:20:48.293 --> 00:20:49.661
  • You're not having therelationship so you can prove
  • 00:20:49.695 --> 00:20:51.263
  • you're this great Christian.
  • 00:20:51.296 --> 00:20:52.597
  • You're not having a relationshipwhere you got to do everything
  • 00:20:52.631 --> 00:20:54.266
  • in the opens to be seen.
  • 00:20:54.299 --> 00:20:55.667
  • You can do things in the closetbecause you have a personal
  • 00:20:55.701 --> 00:20:57.469
  • relationship with him and youain't got to try to prove that
  • 00:20:57.502 --> 00:21:00.405
  • to nobody.
  • 00:21:00.439 --> 00:21:01.907
  • Then that which is in yourheart never has the need for
  • 00:21:01.940 --> 00:21:08.413
  • any validation.
  • 00:21:08.447 --> 00:21:11.483
  • 'Cause anytime you do somethingout of your heart, validation is
  • 00:21:11.516 --> 00:21:14.619
  • not needed.
  • 00:21:14.653 --> 00:21:17.322
  • It's only when you aremechanically doing something
  • 00:21:17.356 --> 00:21:20.525
  • that's not in your heart inthe first place that you need
  • 00:21:20.559 --> 00:21:23.729
  • validation to try to help youprove that you kind of
  • 00:21:23.762 --> 00:21:26.765
  • believe what you really don't.
  • 00:21:26.798 --> 00:21:28.967
  • And we're living in a societyand a generation that people are
  • 00:21:31.636 --> 00:21:35.774
  • doing all kinds of thingsjust to buy validation.
  • 00:21:35.807 --> 00:21:39.711
  • Do you know how you going tofeel one day when you wake up
  • 00:21:39.745 --> 00:21:41.813
  • and you don't care aboutnobody's validation except
  • 00:21:41.847 --> 00:21:45.984
  • the Father's?
  • 00:21:46.017 --> 00:21:47.753
  • You are going to walk in a levelof freedom that is going to
  • 00:21:47.786 --> 00:21:50.255
  • freak people out.
  • 00:21:50.288 --> 00:21:52.457
  • They're going to be doing andsaying stupid stuff about you
  • 00:21:52.491 --> 00:21:54.459
  • and you're just going to besmiling and saying, "How are
  • 00:21:54.493 --> 00:21:56.128
  • you doing there, what, what?
  • 00:21:56.161 --> 00:21:57.696
  • Yeah, okay," ain't goingto bother you a bit, man.
  • 00:21:57.729 --> 00:22:00.265
  • It's a freedom, it's a freedom.
  • 00:22:00.298 --> 00:22:01.800
  • It's taken me time to getto that place of freedom.
  • 00:22:01.833 --> 00:22:04.703
  • I just didn't knowpeople were so mean.
  • 00:22:04.736 --> 00:22:06.638
  • I didn't know Christians were somean, and I didn't know church
  • 00:22:06.671 --> 00:22:08.874
  • folks were meaner thanthe unsaved folks.
  • 00:22:08.907 --> 00:22:10.509
  • There were folks that did--thathad--that were full of the devil
  • 00:22:10.542 --> 00:22:13.478
  • that treated me nicer thansome Christian folks did.
  • 00:22:13.512 --> 00:22:16.214
  • And I was shocked, butI tell you what, man.
  • 00:22:16.248 --> 00:22:20.018
  • Now I see what Jesus was saying.
  • 00:22:20.051 --> 00:22:21.920
  • That one of the greatestdeliverance we can have is
  • 00:22:21.953 --> 00:22:23.722
  • deliverance from people sothat you're never changing
  • 00:22:23.755 --> 00:22:26.525
  • for anybody.
  • 00:22:26.558 --> 00:22:28.427
  • You're changing because of therelationship you have with Jesus
  • 00:22:28.460 --> 00:22:30.829
  • is what's giving you the desireto want to be more like him.
  • 00:22:30.862 --> 00:22:37.135
  • Amen?
  • 00:22:37.169 --> 00:22:39.704
  • Let's look at this Scripture.
  • 00:22:39.738 --> 00:22:42.707
  • Proverbs chapter 4:23.
  • 00:22:42.741 --> 00:22:45.343
  • And, man, I tell you I'm justso excited about my relationship
  • 00:22:45.377 --> 00:22:51.283
  • with God.
  • 00:22:51.316 --> 00:22:53.819
  • Change is near you.

  • "Change is near me."
  • 00:22:57.355 --> 00:22:59.291
  • Now, verse 4--verse 23,he says, "Keep thy heart."
  • 00:22:59.324 --> 00:23:05.931
  • In another translation itsays to guard your heart.
  • 00:23:05.964 --> 00:23:09.267
  • Wow.
  • 00:23:09.301 --> 00:23:11.169
