  • Creflo Dollar: I believe ifyou'll start praising God today,
  • 00:00:09.778 --> 00:00:13.282
  • it'll cause you to focusmore on God's Word.
  • 00:00:13.315 --> 00:00:16.852
  • It'll cause you to focus more onwhat God has to say about some
  • 00:00:16.885 --> 00:00:20.289
  • things rather than youfocusin' on your problems.
  • 00:00:20.322 --> 00:00:24.960
  • Everybody's got some issues, butyou've gotta decide what you're

  • Creflo: Tonight I wanna teachyou about the effects of praise.
  • 00:01:45.507 --> 00:01:50.412
  • The effects of praise.
  • 00:01:50.445 --> 00:01:53.916
  • Now, I want you to listen tothis as we go through the Word
  • 00:01:53.949 --> 00:01:56.652
  • on this tonight.
  • 00:01:56.685 --> 00:01:59.354
  • The amount of time you spendpraising God, think about that.
  • 00:01:59.388 --> 00:02:04.126
  • Look at and evaluate yourlife where that is concerned.
  • 00:02:04.159 --> 00:02:08.931
  • How much time do youspend praising God?
  • 00:02:08.964 --> 00:02:12.634
  • Is that something that you doonly when you're in the
  • 00:02:12.668 --> 00:02:14.970
  • church building?
  • 00:02:15.003 --> 00:02:18.240
  • But, you know, what is themotivation behind me spending
  • 00:02:18.273 --> 00:02:21.810
  • time in praising God?
  • 00:02:21.843 --> 00:02:23.912
  • Well, that's what I wanna tryto accomplish here tonight.
  • 00:02:23.946 --> 00:02:26.315
  • The amount of time you spendpraising God is the greatest
  • 00:02:26.348 --> 00:02:28.717
  • single indicator of where youare in your relationship with
  • 00:02:28.750 --> 00:02:34.356
  • the Lord.
  • 00:02:34.389 --> 00:02:36.425
  • The amount of time you spendpraising God is the greatest
  • 00:02:36.458 --> 00:02:39.561
  • single indicator of where youare in your relationship
  • 00:02:39.595 --> 00:02:46.268
  • with God.
  • 00:02:46.301 --> 00:02:48.370
  • It'll help you to locate whereyou are in your relationship
  • 00:02:48.403 --> 00:02:50.939
  • with God.
  • 00:02:50.973 --> 00:02:53.275
  • And, you know, as far asTaffi and I are concerned,
  • 00:02:53.308 --> 00:02:55.611
  • it's--everything starts at thatrelationship we have with God,
  • 00:02:55.644 --> 00:02:59.081
  • and it goes from thatparticular point.
  • 00:02:59.114 --> 00:03:02.517
  • You know, there are times ofconflict, yet there are times of
  • 00:03:02.551 --> 00:03:06.555
  • conflicts where we should bepraisin' the Lord the most in
  • 00:03:06.588 --> 00:03:13.729
  • those times of hardconfrontation, in those times of
  • 00:03:13.762 --> 00:03:18.634
  • frustration, in thosetimes of stress.
  • 00:03:18.667 --> 00:03:21.937
  • That's probably where we needto begin to praise God the most
  • 00:03:21.970 --> 00:03:25.407
  • because the three things I'mgonna share with you tonight,
  • 00:03:25.440 --> 00:03:28.343
  • praise will do these threethings, and I hope that this
  • 00:03:28.377 --> 00:03:30.579
  • motivates you tobegin to do it more.
  • 00:03:30.612 --> 00:03:33.482
  • First of all, the reason why weshould be praising God probably
  • 00:03:33.515 --> 00:03:37.219
  • a lot more during the time ofconflict than any other time is
  • 00:03:37.252 --> 00:03:41.156
  • because praise, numberone, it builds your faith.
  • 00:03:41.189 --> 00:03:45.294
  • It causes your faithto be amplified.
  • 00:03:45.327 --> 00:03:47.763
  • It causes your faith, theBible says, to abound.
  • 00:03:47.796 --> 00:03:51.400
  • And the second motivation tobegin to praise God not just
  • 00:03:51.433 --> 00:03:55.937
  • during conflicts but begin tomake it a life of thanksgiving
  • 00:03:55.971 --> 00:03:59.541
  • and praise, the second reasonthat we're gonna teach on
  • 00:03:59.574 --> 00:04:01.943
  • tonight is that it runs offthe devil, and I tell you what,
  • 00:04:01.977 --> 00:04:05.647
  • there's a devil loose, and thatdevil wants to kill, steal, and
  • 00:04:05.681 --> 00:04:08.483
  • destroy, and wreakhavoc in your life.
  • 00:04:08.517 --> 00:04:11.553
  • And I'm telling you, in the nameof Jesus, praise will
  • 00:04:11.586 --> 00:04:14.122
  • confront that.
  • 00:04:14.156 --> 00:04:16.692
  • And here's the third reason thatreally, really ministers to me
  • 00:04:16.725 --> 00:04:18.994
  • is that praise ministers to God.
  • 00:04:19.027 --> 00:04:22.230
  • The Bible talks about it inRevelation, how we were created
  • 00:04:22.264 --> 00:04:25.000
  • for his pleasure.
  • 00:04:25.033 --> 00:04:27.536
  • And I'll never forget when mychildren would come to me and
  • 00:04:27.569 --> 00:04:31.006
  • say, "You're a good daddy."
  • 00:04:31.039 --> 00:04:33.175
  • Man, that was pleasant to me.
  • 00:04:33.208 --> 00:04:35.610
  • And so, as we talk about andteach on these things tonight,
  • 00:04:35.644 --> 00:04:39.047
  • you're gonna find that praiseis gonna help you to focus in on
  • 00:04:39.081 --> 00:04:42.951
  • the right things and to keep youin a place where you need to be.
  • 00:04:42.984 --> 00:04:47.656
  • Praise shouldn't be thecaboose that follows along the
  • 00:04:47.689 --> 00:04:51.660
  • circumstances in your life.
  • 00:04:51.693 --> 00:04:54.363
  • It should be the engine.
  • 00:04:54.396 --> 00:04:56.598
  • It should be the enginedriving your life.
  • 00:04:56.631 --> 00:04:58.867
  • It's not the--when I say,"caboose," I'm referring to
  • 00:04:58.900 --> 00:05:01.203
  • a train.
  • 00:05:01.236 --> 00:05:03.205
  • It shouldn't be the thingthat comes up at the end.
  • 00:05:03.238 --> 00:05:05.707
  • It shouldn't be "Well, I'm gonnapraise God now that all the
  • 00:05:05.741 --> 00:05:09.144
  • circumstances have turned outright and everything's doin' it
  • 00:05:09.177 --> 00:05:12.080
  • needs to be."
  • 00:05:12.114 --> 00:05:13.949
  • It shouldn't be thecaboose in your life.
  • 00:05:13.982 --> 00:05:15.951
  • It should be the engine.
  • 00:05:15.984 --> 00:05:17.919
  • Praise should be somethin'that's driving your life.
  • 00:05:17.953 --> 00:05:21.556
  • It changes your circumstances,and that's the thing that I'm
  • 00:05:21.590 --> 00:05:26.161
  • learning more than ever beforeis that the praise of God
  • 00:05:26.194 --> 00:05:31.366
  • is--praise and thanksgiving issomethin' that I do in my life.
  • 00:05:31.400 --> 00:05:35.670
  • It is a result of myrelationship with him that I'm
  • 00:05:35.704 --> 00:05:38.340
  • praising him, and I'm not havin'to wait to see how it
  • 00:05:38.373 --> 00:05:40.809
  • turned out.
  • 00:05:40.842 --> 00:05:42.744
  • I'm not havin' to wait to say,"Well, that thing turned out
  • 00:05:42.778 --> 00:05:44.846
  • well," or "That didn'tturn out so well."
  • 00:05:44.880 --> 00:05:47.883
  • No, I want praise to be theengine that drives my life.
  • 00:05:47.916 --> 00:05:52.254
  • I want praise to be the enginethat really motivates me and
  • 00:05:52.287 --> 00:05:57.793
  • causes me to just livethis life of praise.
  • 00:05:57.826 --> 00:06:02.063
  • It will changeyour circumstances.
  • 00:06:02.097 --> 00:06:05.033
  • Let's go over toColossians chapter 2.
  • 00:06:05.066 --> 00:06:07.769
  • Colossians chapter 2,verses 6 through 7.
  • 00:06:07.803 --> 00:06:11.540
  • Colossians 2:6-7.
  • 00:06:11.573 --> 00:06:14.443
  • Let's read that in the KingJames and the New Living
  • 00:06:14.476 --> 00:06:16.044
  • Translation, Colossianschapter 2, verses 6 through 7.
  • 00:06:16.077 --> 00:06:20.482
  • I want you to notice somethin'here because I really do believe
  • 00:06:20.515 --> 00:06:24.186
  • that your faith is gonna beamplified when we begin to
  • 00:06:24.219 --> 00:06:29.024
  • operate in praise.
  • 00:06:29.057 --> 00:06:32.294
  • Notice what he says in thesetwo verses of Scripture.
  • 00:06:32.327 --> 00:06:34.830
  • In King James first, he says"As you have therefore received
  • 00:06:34.863 --> 00:06:37.999
  • Christ Jesus the Lord,"he says, "so walk in him."
  • 00:06:38.033 --> 00:06:41.903
  • Verse 7, "Rooted and built upin him, and stablished in the
  • 00:06:41.937 --> 00:06:48.643
  • faith, stablished in the faith,as you have been taught," and
  • 00:06:48.677 --> 00:06:54.416
  • then he says, "aboundingtherein with thanksgiving."
  • 00:06:54.449 --> 00:06:58.753
  • "Abounding thereinwith thanksgiving."
  • 00:06:58.787 --> 00:07:01.957
  • So not only walkin' in faith,but seeing that faith increase
  • 00:07:01.990 --> 00:07:05.627
  • in thanksgiving.
  • 00:07:05.660 --> 00:07:07.596
  • Look at this in the NLT.
  • 00:07:07.629 --> 00:07:09.965
  • He says, "And now, just as youaccepted Christ Jesus as your
  • 00:07:09.998 --> 00:07:13.168
  • Lord, you must continueto follow him."
  • 00:07:13.201 --> 00:07:17.105
  • Verse 7, he says, "Let yourroots grow down into him,"
  • 00:07:17.138 --> 00:07:21.943
  • praise God, "and let yourlives be built on him.
  • 00:07:21.977 --> 00:07:26.481
  • Then your faith will grow strongin the truth you were taught,
  • 00:07:26.515 --> 00:07:31.686
  • and you will overflowwith thankfulness."
  • 00:07:31.720 --> 00:07:35.123
  • I believe that, when anindividual begins to operate in
  • 00:07:35.156 --> 00:07:39.594
  • thanksgiving and operate inpraise, it will cause your faith
  • 00:07:39.628 --> 00:07:44.766
  • to overflow.
  • 00:07:44.799 --> 00:07:47.235
  • It will cause your faith to beamplified, and it will increase
  • 00:07:47.269 --> 00:07:51.640
  • your faith.
  • 00:07:51.673 --> 00:07:54.442
  • And so praise is a highform of faith, I believe.
  • 00:07:54.476 --> 00:07:58.680
  • I believe it's somethin' that,if you do it, you're gonna see
  • 00:07:58.713 --> 00:08:01.783
  • some amazing things happen as,you know, your faith goes to
  • 00:08:01.816 --> 00:08:05.921
  • appropriate and take possessionof what Jesus has already
  • 00:08:05.954 --> 00:08:09.524
  • made available.
  • 00:08:09.558 --> 00:08:11.693
  • There are lots of Christiansthat they may know that certain
  • 00:08:11.726 --> 00:08:14.729
  • things have been made availableto them by Jesus Christ but have
  • 00:08:14.763 --> 00:08:19.568
  • not yet really learned andmastered how to take possession
  • 00:08:19.601 --> 00:08:23.605
  • of those things, and so duringdifficult trials, abounding in
  • 00:08:23.638 --> 00:08:28.910
  • faith includes praising God asyou wait for the manifestation
  • 00:08:28.944 --> 00:08:32.847
  • of his power tobring you through.
  • 00:08:32.881 --> 00:08:36.785
  • And this is during times thatwe're goin' through right now.
  • 00:08:36.818 --> 00:08:41.056
  • It's during thetime of a pandemic.
  • 00:08:41.089 --> 00:08:44.225
  • It's during the time of tryin'to, you know, figure out how
  • 00:08:44.259 --> 00:08:46.995
  • you're gon' pay the rent,and all your money is spent.
  • 00:08:47.028 --> 00:08:49.564
  • Little bit to buy some food,baby need a pair of shoes.
  • 00:08:49.598 --> 00:08:52.133
  • This is the time to praise God.
  • 00:08:52.167 --> 00:08:54.569
  • This is not "Well, I'm gonnapraise God 'cause I feel good,"
  • 00:08:54.603 --> 00:08:57.739
  • or "I'm gonna praise God becausewe're in church, and I
  • 00:08:57.772 --> 00:08:59.975
  • just feel good."
  • 00:09:00.008 --> 00:09:01.343
  • No, no, no, no, thisthing is a weapon.
  • 00:09:01.376 --> 00:09:03.478
  • This thing is an amplifier.
  • 00:09:03.511 --> 00:09:05.647
  • This is a high form of faith.
  • 00:09:05.680 --> 00:09:08.016
  • Just think about that.
  • 00:09:08.049 --> 00:09:09.985
  • For me to praise God for themanifestations that I know will
  • 00:09:10.018 --> 00:09:12.554
  • come forth, that'sa high faith, man.
  • 00:09:12.587 --> 00:09:15.657
  • That's a high form of faith,and during difficult trials,
  • 00:09:15.690 --> 00:09:19.594
  • abounding in faith or increasingin faith durin' those difficult
  • 00:09:19.628 --> 00:09:22.998
  • trials, and that includespraising God as you wait for the
  • 00:09:23.031 --> 00:09:26.735
  • manifestations, as you wait forhis power to bring you through
  • 00:09:26.768 --> 00:09:31.039
  • those situations.
  • 00:09:31.072 --> 00:09:33.375
  • In fact, look atPsalms 34, in verse 1.
  • 00:09:33.408 --> 00:09:37.178
  • Psalms 34, in verse 1.
  • 00:09:37.212 --> 00:09:40.181
  • I believe that praise will causeyour faith to thrive, again,
  • 00:09:40.215 --> 00:09:45.620
  • amplify or to thrive, and thatjust really got my attention
  • 00:09:45.654 --> 00:09:50.392
  • that I'm not just praisingGod, you know, for show.
  • 00:09:50.425 --> 00:09:55.897
  • I mean, when you understand howthis works and you understand
  • 00:09:55.930 --> 00:10:00.268
  • that this needs to be born outof a relationship, and you get
  • 00:10:00.301 --> 00:10:04.873
  • deeper in him, notice thatScripture from Colossians.
  • 00:10:04.906 --> 00:10:08.576
  • We're gettin' deeper with him.
  • 00:10:08.610 --> 00:10:10.345
  • We're understanding him, andthen, out of that, out of that,
  • 00:10:10.378 --> 00:10:13.948
  • praise is born.
  • 00:10:13.982 --> 00:10:15.950
  • I mean, when you begin tounderstand how much God loves
  • 00:10:15.984 --> 00:10:18.987
  • you, then you're gonna want to,out of that relationship and
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:21.956
  • understandin', you wannaread those love letters.
  • 00:10:21.990 --> 00:10:25.026
  • That's the Bible.
  • 00:10:25.060 --> 00:10:27.295
  • And then you're gonna wanna goand talk to the one that wrote
  • 00:10:27.328 --> 00:10:30.932
  • those love letters.
  • 00:10:30.965 --> 00:10:33.368
  • That's prayer.
  • 00:10:33.401 --> 00:10:35.637
  • And then you wanna go and tellsomebody about this love and
  • 00:10:35.670 --> 00:10:38.473
  • what God has already done.
  • 00:10:38.506 --> 00:10:40.842
  • That's evangelism.
  • 00:10:40.875 --> 00:10:43.044
  • And what I'm tryin' to do isjust, yes, understand all of
  • 00:10:43.078 --> 00:10:45.280
  • those little, you know,religious positions and all
  • 00:10:45.313 --> 00:10:47.716
  • that, but I wanna simplify it.
  • 00:10:47.749 --> 00:10:50.452
  • Everything coming from thatrelationship--this is what
  • 00:10:50.485 --> 00:10:52.787
  • Christianity is about.
  • 00:10:52.821 --> 00:10:54.856
  • It is the opportunity for us tohave a relationship with Jesus
  • 00:10:54.889 --> 00:10:57.292
  • Christ, and so I believe thatout of that relationship, praise
  • 00:10:57.325 --> 00:11:01.296
  • is born.
  • 00:11:01.329 --> 00:11:03.665
  • You get to start lookin' atwhat God has done and how he's
  • 00:11:03.698 --> 00:11:06.668
  • delivered you.
  • 00:11:06.701 --> 00:11:08.737
  • Out of that relationship, thatthanksgiving is born, and then
  • 00:11:08.770 --> 00:11:12.340
  • all of those things proceed outof that relationship that has
  • 00:11:12.373 --> 00:11:15.276
  • given birth to all of that.
  • 00:11:15.310 --> 00:11:17.679
  • I like what he says in verse 1.
  • 00:11:17.712 --> 00:11:19.614
  • He says, "I will blessthe Lord at all times.
  • 00:11:19.647 --> 00:11:22.383
  • His praise shallcontinually be in my mouth."
  • 00:11:22.417 --> 00:11:25.186
  • Man, what happens to a personwho sets his mind that says,
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:28.289
  • "I'm gonna bless the Lord at alltimes, the good times and the
  • 00:11:28.323 --> 00:11:31.359
  • bad times, and I'm gonnamake sure that his praise is
  • 00:11:31.392 --> 00:11:34.295
  • continually in my mouth"?
  • 00:11:34.329 --> 00:11:37.132
  • You know, one of the things I'vebeen doing and just recognizing
  • 00:11:37.165 --> 00:11:40.135
  • is that I'll spend a largeamount of my prayer time just
  • 00:11:40.168 --> 00:11:45.073
  • thanking and praising God forwhat he has done and what he's
  • 00:11:45.106 --> 00:11:48.276
  • gonna do.
  • 00:11:48.309 --> 00:11:51.045
  • I have times where I'm thankin'and praising God, and when I get
  • 00:11:51.079 --> 00:11:54.382
  • up from prayer, my face is wetbecause I didn't recognize that
  • 00:11:54.415 --> 00:11:59.621
  • tears were just flowing outbecause I really mean it.
  • 00:11:59.654 --> 00:12:02.690
  • I'm not doin' this because it'sthe "Oh, we've discovered a new
  • 00:12:02.724 --> 00:12:05.560
  • mechanical step that couldpossibly prosper you."
  • 00:12:05.593 --> 00:12:09.030
  • That's not why I'm doing it.
  • 00:12:09.063 --> 00:12:11.299
  • It is somethin' that is beingdone because I am experiencing a
  • 00:12:11.332 --> 00:12:14.135
  • real, genuine, intimaterelationship with him, and now
  • 00:12:14.169 --> 00:12:18.373
  • my praise is born out of that,and it's genuine, and it's real,
  • 00:12:18.406 --> 00:12:23.711
  • and it's effective.
  • 00:12:23.745 --> 00:12:26.147
  • It is a relationship that isthere when I'm up and when I'm
  • 00:12:26.181 --> 00:12:28.082
  • down and when things are goodand when things are not so good.
  • 00:12:28.116 --> 00:12:31.953
  • And then this is what I believethat this Scripture here reminds
  • 00:12:31.986 --> 00:12:34.789
  • me of: "I will blessthe Lord at all times."
  • 00:12:34.823 --> 00:12:38.560
  • That is a person who hasdecided "I've made a decision.
  • 00:12:38.593 --> 00:12:41.062
  • I'm gonna bless the Lord.
  • 00:12:41.095 --> 00:12:43.198
  • I'm gonna bless him when I feelgood, when I don't feel good.
  • 00:12:43.231 --> 00:12:45.500
  • I'm gonna bless him whennobody's knocking at the door
  • 00:12:45.533 --> 00:12:47.535
  • and when depression isknockin' at the door.
  • 00:12:47.569 --> 00:12:49.470
  • I will bless theLord at all times.
  • 00:12:49.504 --> 00:12:51.739
  • His praise shallcontinually be in my mouth."
  • 00:12:51.773 --> 00:12:55.176
  • Oh, my God, I want youto make that decision.
  • 00:12:55.210 --> 00:12:59.480
  • And some of you say, "Well, it'shard to make that decision."
  • 00:12:59.514 --> 00:13:02.617
  • Well, it's not if you know him.
  • 00:13:02.650 --> 00:13:05.220
  • It's not if you have arelationship with him.
  • 00:13:05.253 --> 00:13:08.323
  • It's not if you begin torecognize that "All these
  • 00:13:08.356 --> 00:13:11.226
  • things, all these good thingshave come from him, and he's
  • 00:13:11.259 --> 00:13:15.563
  • been a blessin' in my life,and I got to bless him."
  • 00:13:15.597 --> 00:13:19.734
  • I'm still reminded that--youknow, I have a whole new respect
  • 00:13:19.767 --> 00:13:22.737
  • for Job.
  • 00:13:22.770 --> 00:13:25.006
  • It's like, man, this guyhas--he made his mind up.
  • 00:13:25.039 --> 00:13:27.575
  • "God, I'm not leavin' you."
  • 00:13:27.609 --> 00:13:30.011
  • Now, he might not had a clearunderstanding of, you know, what
  • 00:13:30.044 --> 00:13:32.380
  • the cause was and all of that,but, you know--and which makes
  • 00:13:32.413 --> 00:13:35.817
  • it even better, I mean, for himto think, "Well, maybe this came
  • 00:13:35.850 --> 00:13:38.620
  • from God, and I'm gon'praise you anyway," you know?
  • 00:13:38.653 --> 00:13:41.389
  • There's some people ready toquit on God if he just don't
  • 00:13:41.422 --> 00:13:43.791
  • answer a little prayer or give'em a little somethin' they ask
  • 00:13:43.825 --> 00:13:46.394
  • about, but thisguy would not quit.
  • 00:13:46.427 --> 00:13:49.364
  • This guy, the Bible says heshaved his head after losin'
  • 00:13:49.397 --> 00:13:52.934
  • everything, andhe worshiped God.
  • 00:13:52.967 --> 00:13:56.437
  • He made a statement, man,"Though you slay me, yet will I
  • 00:13:56.471 --> 00:14:00.742
  • serve thee."
  • 00:14:00.775 --> 00:14:03.411
  • I mean, you know, I can excuseall of the, you know, his
  • 00:14:03.444 --> 00:14:06.247
  • understanding or lack ofunderstanding in some areas, but
  • 00:14:06.281 --> 00:14:08.716
  • the thing that ministers tome is that it's like, "I'm not
  • 00:14:08.750 --> 00:14:10.652
  • goin' anywhere, God.
  • 00:14:10.685 --> 00:14:12.887
  • I'm not goin' anywhere.
  • 00:14:12.921 --> 00:14:15.356
  • It wasn't what I had thatwas the foundation of my
  • 00:14:15.390 --> 00:14:17.558
  • relationship with you.
  • 00:14:17.592 --> 00:14:19.661
  • It wasn't what you necessarilydid that was the foundation of
  • 00:14:19.694 --> 00:14:21.596
  • my relationship with you.
  • 00:14:21.629 --> 00:14:24.098
  • I'm in it for you."
  • 00:14:24.132 --> 00:14:26.000
  • We keep goin' back to that.
  • 00:14:26.034 --> 00:14:28.002
  • This is somethin' that I wannaemphasize over and over and over
  • 00:14:28.036 --> 00:14:29.871
  • and over again so that, ifreligion has kind of, you know,
  • 00:14:29.904 --> 00:14:35.209
  • led you away from thatrelationship, I mean, this is
  • 00:14:35.243 --> 00:14:39.347
  • what--this is--you know, Iwas reading a Scripture this
  • 00:14:39.380 --> 00:14:41.916
  • morning, Deuteronomy 28 and 10.
  • 00:14:41.950 --> 00:14:44.585
  • He says, "They will call you bymy name, and then they will be
  • 00:14:44.619 --> 00:14:46.821
  • afraid of you."
  • 00:14:46.854 --> 00:14:49.390
  • Christ-ian.
  • 00:14:49.424 --> 00:14:51.292
  • Praise God.
  • 00:14:51.326 --> 00:14:53.661
  • They'll be afraid of you--orHebrew, they'll favor you.
  • 00:14:53.695 --> 00:14:56.331
  • They will respect you.
  • 00:14:56.364 --> 00:14:58.900
  • They will reverence you.
  • 00:14:58.933 --> 00:15:01.436
  • And favor and God will come outof your life and even from other
  • 00:15:01.469 --> 00:15:03.571
  • people because you area blessing, praise God.
  • 00:15:03.604 --> 00:15:07.075
  • In fact, you are a blessinggoin' somewhere to happen.
  • 00:15:07.108 --> 00:15:10.912
  • I speak that overyou right now, man.
  • 00:15:10.945 --> 00:15:13.648
  • They call you by his name.
  • 00:15:13.681 --> 00:15:15.750
  • You are a blessing goin'somewhere to happen, praise God.
  • 00:15:15.783 --> 00:15:18.252
  • Thank you, Jesus, amen.
  • 00:15:18.286 --> 00:15:21.055
  • And so the Word tells us topraise God because it makes us
  • 00:15:21.089 --> 00:15:24.826
  • focus on what God says ratherthan our problem, and I
  • 00:15:24.859 --> 00:15:28.863
  • believe that.
  • 00:15:28.896 --> 00:15:30.898
  • I believe, if you'll startpraising God today, it'll cause
  • 00:15:30.932 --> 00:15:33.868
  • you to focus more on God's Word.
  • 00:15:33.901 --> 00:15:36.971
  • It'll cause you to focus more onwhat God has to say about some
  • 00:15:37.005 --> 00:15:40.341
  • things rather than youfocusin' on your problems.
  • 00:15:40.375 --> 00:15:45.613
  • Everybody's got some issues, butyou've gotta decide what you're
  • 00:15:45.646 --> 00:15:48.850
  • gonna focus on, and praise isgonna help direct your focus on
  • 00:15:48.883 --> 00:15:54.689
  • God's promises, and that's worthit right there as far as
  • 00:15:54.722 --> 00:15:59.494
  • I'm concerned.
  • 00:15:59.527 --> 00:16:02.130
  • I wanna focus in on that.
  • 00:16:02.163 --> 00:16:04.198
  • There are certain days, youknow, Taffi and I walk around
  • 00:16:04.232 --> 00:16:06.501
  • the house, and she'll say,"Did you hear such-and-such,
  • 00:16:06.534 --> 00:16:08.603
  • such-and-so?"
  • 00:16:08.636 --> 00:16:10.938
  • And I'm thinkin', "Nah, I'mfocusin' on this right now."
  • 00:16:10.972 --> 00:16:13.207
  • And, you know, we may makemention of some things that are
  • 00:16:13.241 --> 00:16:15.176
  • goin' on, and then we getour focus in the right place.
  • 00:16:15.209 --> 00:16:17.945
  • We don't wanna dwellin those spots so long.
  • 00:16:17.979 --> 00:16:21.015
  • I wanna focus on whatGod has to say about it.
  • 00:16:21.049 --> 00:16:23.184
  • I wanna focus on his promises,and in the midst of the time
  • 00:16:23.217 --> 00:16:26.754
  • where people are sayin', "Putthe Bible down," I ain't never
  • 00:16:26.788 --> 00:16:29.157
  • gon' do that.
  • 00:16:29.190 --> 00:16:31.225
  • I'm never gonna putthe Word of God down.
  • 00:16:31.259 --> 00:16:33.461
  • That's what I live by,that's what I stand on.
  • 00:16:33.494 --> 00:16:35.063
  • That's what I'm gon' keep.
  • 00:16:35.096 --> 00:16:37.198
  • Praise God.
  • 00:16:37.231 --> 00:16:39.067
  • You know, the Bibleis so, so good.
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:41.335
  • Its words are nourishing factorsin my life that causes me to be
  • 00:16:41.369 --> 00:16:45.273
  • able to go through and tomake it through things.
  • 00:16:45.306 --> 00:16:49.077
  • So I want you to start--I'mtalkin' to each of you, each of
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:51.345
  • you, especially theWednesday night crew.
  • 00:16:51.379 --> 00:16:53.681
  • I'm talkin' to you right now.
  • 00:16:53.714 --> 00:16:55.683
  • Start praising God, and it willredirect your attention to God's
  • 00:16:55.716 --> 00:16:59.787
  • will for you, and it's gonnabuild your faith to receive, I
  • 00:16:59.821 --> 00:17:04.425
  • believe, a miracle.
  • 00:17:04.459 --> 00:17:07.061
  • So let's start praisin' him.
  • 00:17:07.095 --> 00:17:08.930
  • Somebody says,"How do I do that?"
  • 00:17:08.963 --> 00:17:10.665
  • Honey, it don't take a lot foryou to come up with somethin' to
  • 00:17:10.698 --> 00:17:13.034
  • praise God for.
  • 00:17:13.067 --> 00:17:14.769
  • All you gotta dois open your eyes.
  • 00:17:14.802 --> 00:17:16.637
  • You can praise God for havingsight, and then you can look
  • 00:17:16.671 --> 00:17:18.706
  • around with those eyes, and youcan praise God for having this.
  • 00:17:18.739 --> 00:17:21.442
  • Or you can, you know, go sitdown and eat, and you can praise
  • 00:17:21.476 --> 00:17:23.778
  • God that you havefood at your table.
  • 00:17:23.811 --> 00:17:26.981
  • And you can go look at yourbills, and you can praise God
  • 00:17:27.014 --> 00:17:29.250
  • that you have the supply totake care of these bills.
  • 00:17:29.283 --> 00:17:32.887
  • And you can look at yourchildren, and they're
  • 00:17:32.920 --> 00:17:34.889
  • all healthy.
  • 00:17:34.922 --> 00:17:36.657
  • You can praise God for that.
  • 00:17:36.691 --> 00:17:38.493
  • And while you walkin' around thehouse, you can praise God that
  • 00:17:38.526 --> 00:17:40.294
  • you can walk around the house.
  • 00:17:40.328 --> 00:17:42.130
  • And if it's a pretty day, youcan praise God for that, being a
  • 00:17:42.163 --> 00:17:44.065
  • pretty day.
  • 00:17:44.098 --> 00:17:45.967
  • It's just something that happensin the life of a Christian where
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:48.002
  • you allow God to redirect yourattention to his will for your
  • 00:17:48.035 --> 00:17:50.872
  • life, and then, you know, he'llbuild your faith up, man, and
  • 00:17:50.905 --> 00:17:54.475
  • you'll receive whatever Ibelieve you need at that
  • 00:17:54.509 --> 00:17:57.678
  • particular time.
  • 00:17:57.712 --> 00:17:59.213
  • And so your life is going in thedirection--I believe your life
  • 00:17:59.247 --> 00:18:04.418
  • goes in the direction ofyour most dominant thoughts.
  • 00:18:04.452 --> 00:18:09.757
  • Your life will go in thedirection of your most
  • 00:18:09.790 --> 00:18:12.527
  • dominant thoughts.
  • 00:18:12.560 --> 00:18:14.996
  • What have you beenthinkin' about?
  • 00:18:15.029 --> 00:18:17.098
  • What have you beenthinkin' about lately?
  • 00:18:17.131 --> 00:18:19.333
  • And have you allowed thosethoughts to dominate
  • 00:18:19.367 --> 00:18:21.636
  • your thinking?
  • 00:18:21.669 --> 00:18:24.305
  • Look at Psalms 23 and verse 7.
  • 00:18:24.338 --> 00:18:27.375
  • You're very familiarwith this Scripture.
  • 00:18:27.408 --> 00:18:30.144
  • I believe your life is going inthe direction of your
  • 00:18:30.178 --> 00:18:32.346
  • dominant thoughts.
  • 00:18:32.380 --> 00:18:34.282
  • What have you beenthinkin' about?
  • 00:18:34.315 --> 00:18:36.184
  • I have talked to people, overthe last couple of weeks, who
  • 00:18:36.217 --> 00:18:38.219
  • allowed their emotions and theirthinking to be dominated by all
  • 00:18:38.252 --> 00:18:43.691
  • of the things that aregoin' on in the world.
  • 00:18:43.724 --> 00:18:46.594
  • Gotta be careful.
  • 00:18:46.627 --> 00:18:49.463
  • You gotta be careful.
  • 00:18:49.497 --> 00:18:51.799
  • If you're going to be useful,you got to be careful about what
  • 00:18:51.832 --> 00:18:54.202
  • you do in your private time sothat you can see the fruit in
  • 00:18:54.235 --> 00:18:57.405
  • your public time.
  • 00:18:57.438 --> 00:18:59.473
  • But look at what he says here inProverbs 23, verse 7--excuse me,
  • 00:18:59.507 --> 00:19:04.579
  • I said, "Psalms."
  • 00:19:04.612 --> 00:19:06.547
  • Proverbs 23, verse 7, and whatit says is: "As a man thinketh,"
  • 00:19:06.581 --> 00:19:13.187
  • comma, "in his heart, so is he."
  • 00:19:13.221 --> 00:19:16.324
  • "As a man thinketh," comma,"in his heart, so is he."
  • 00:19:16.357 --> 00:19:22.897
  • So you are going to be a resultof the dominant thoughts in
  • 00:19:22.930 --> 00:19:30.404
  • your life.
  • 00:19:30.438 --> 00:19:33.007
  • What are those thoughts thatare dominating your life?
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:36.777
  • And I started thinkin', "IfI'm goin' to be dominated by
  • 00:19:36.811 --> 00:19:40.114
  • thoughts, I want the Wordto dominate my thinkin'.
  • 00:19:40.147 --> 00:19:43.718
  • I wanna think more--I wantmore of God's Word to be in my
  • 00:19:43.751 --> 00:19:46.687
  • thought life, and I want God'sWord to dominate my thought.
  • 00:19:46.721 --> 00:19:50.758
  • I want the promises of Godto dominate my thoughts."
  • 00:19:50.791 --> 00:19:54.095
  • And so whatever you think aboutand focus your attention on
  • 00:19:54.128 --> 00:19:57.698
  • determines thecourse of your life.
  • 00:19:57.732 --> 00:20:00.201
  • I believe that.
  • 00:20:00.234 --> 00:20:02.336
  • I've seen that done.
  • 00:20:02.370 --> 00:20:04.238
  • I have testimony after testimonyabout that, and somethin' so
  • 00:20:04.272 --> 00:20:07.875
  • simple as, you know, changin'what I'm thinkin' about,
  • 00:20:07.908 --> 00:20:12.079
  • changing my focus.
  • 00:20:12.113 --> 00:20:14.348
  • Bible says attend to his Word.
  • 00:20:14.382 --> 00:20:18.052
  • And so what areyou thinkin' about?
  • 00:20:18.085 --> 00:20:20.655
  • What's your focus?
  • 00:20:20.688 --> 00:20:22.790
  • What are you focusingyour attention on?
  • 00:20:22.823 --> 00:20:25.393
  • That's gonna determinethe course of your life.
  • 00:20:25.426 --> 00:20:28.729
  • And I started believin' that,and I started makin' the change
  • 00:20:28.763 --> 00:20:31.632
  • when I first, you know,heard that and realized that.
  • 00:20:31.666 --> 00:20:33.768
  • I thought all this,you know--whatever.
  • 00:20:33.801 --> 00:20:36.837
  • That's--you know, what is that?
  • 00:20:36.871 --> 00:20:39.206
  • And you gotta be careful notto exalt things that are less
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:42.043
  • important over thingsthat are more important.
  • 00:20:42.076 --> 00:20:44.478
  • This Word is more important.
  • 00:20:44.512 --> 00:20:46.547
  • This Word is more important,and, you know, if I'm thinkin'
  • 00:20:46.580 --> 00:20:49.550
  • crazy things and crazy thoughts,that's gonna be one thing, but
  • 00:20:49.583 --> 00:20:53.087
  • when I allow my thinking tobe governed by God's Word, the
  • 00:20:53.120 --> 00:20:57.258
  • course of my life is gonnabe--is gonna go--gonna be
  • 00:20:57.291 --> 00:21:00.428
  • determined, and I'mgonna go the right way.
  • 00:21:00.461 --> 00:21:03.597
  • Somebody says, "Well,I don't believe that.
  • 00:21:03.631 --> 00:21:05.433
  • That's just words."
  • 00:21:05.466 --> 00:21:07.101
  • We'll, see, that's probably whyyou are where you are right now
  • 00:21:07.134 --> 00:21:09.003
  • 'cause you're not goin' backfurther enough and into the
  • 00:21:09.036 --> 00:21:11.238
  • thing, the roots, and the rootsare determining the fruit in
  • 00:21:11.272 --> 00:21:13.507
  • your life.
  • 00:21:13.541 --> 00:21:15.576
  • The roots are determining, youknow, why you do what you do,
  • 00:21:15.609 --> 00:21:17.211
  • why you say what you say, whyyou feel like you feel, or why
  • 00:21:17.244 --> 00:21:20.014
  • you act like you act.
  • 00:21:20.047 --> 00:21:22.783
  • And, you know, whether youbelieve in a God or not, whether
  • 00:21:22.817 --> 00:21:25.086
  • you believe in the devil or not,or heaven or hell or not, it's
  • 00:21:25.119 --> 00:21:28.356
  • still true.
  • 00:21:28.389 --> 00:21:31.025
  • You're gonna have to allow yourthinking to be on the promises
  • 00:21:31.058 --> 00:21:36.030
  • of God so that the courseof your life can be set.
  • 00:21:36.063 --> 00:21:40.034
  • So I thank God.
  • 00:21:40.067 --> 00:21:42.503
  • I thank God for the answerand not the problem.
  • 00:21:42.536 --> 00:21:47.742
  • I thank God for the answerand not the problem.
  • 00:21:47.775 --> 00:21:51.645
  • And sometimes it feels weird,saying, "Praise the Lord,"
  • 00:21:51.679 --> 00:21:55.349
  • concerning a weird thing, butI'm praising God for the answer,
  • 00:21:55.383 --> 00:21:58.786
  • not the problem, and my praiseand thanksgiving for the answer
  • 00:21:58.819 --> 00:22:03.858
  • is going to amplify my faithso that I can one day see that
  • 00:22:03.891 --> 00:22:09.163
  • answer come because I've gotfaith that is complete because I
  • 00:22:09.196 --> 00:22:14.034
  • added some praise to it.
  • 00:22:14.068 --> 00:22:16.604
  • Now, if you aren't praising God,even before you see the physical
  • 00:22:16.637 --> 00:22:19.507
  • manifestation of what you'rebelieving for, then I don't
  • 00:22:19.540 --> 00:22:22.877
  • think your faith is complete.
  • 00:22:22.910 --> 00:22:26.080
  • I think there'ssomething--there's something
  • 00:22:26.113 --> 00:22:28.115
  • that is said when, in themiddle of believing God for a
  • 00:22:28.149 --> 00:22:31.318
  • thing--and it may not even beworkin' out, and it may not even
  • 00:22:31.352 --> 00:22:34.455
  • seem like it's gonna showup--there's somethin' to be
  • 00:22:34.488 --> 00:22:37.725
  • said, there's somethin' thatcompletes your faith when, in
  • 00:22:37.758 --> 00:22:41.228
  • the middle of that wholeprocess, you say, "Praise
  • 00:22:41.262 --> 00:22:43.998
  • the Lord."
  • 00:22:44.031 --> 00:22:46.567
  • In the middle, in the middle ofthat whole thing, you say, "God,
  • 00:22:46.600 --> 00:22:48.969
  • I give you praise.
  • 00:22:49.003 --> 00:22:51.272
  • God, I thank you."
  • 00:22:51.305 --> 00:22:53.207
  • Now, you have an option ofsaying some other stuff.
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:54.942
  • You can say what you wanna say.
  • 00:22:54.975 --> 00:22:57.011
  • You're a free moral agent.
  • 00:22:57.044 --> 00:22:58.946
  • You know, you can say all kindsof things, but there's just
  • 00:22:58.979 --> 00:23:00.548
  • somethin' to be said about anindividual who will praise God
  • 00:23:00.581 --> 00:23:03.884
  • in the midst of believing Godfor the manifestation, and that
  • 00:23:03.918 --> 00:23:06.821
  • manifestation hadn't showed up,and you say, "Lord, I give
  • 00:23:06.854 --> 00:23:09.423
  • You praise."
  • 00:23:09.457 --> 00:23:11.792
  • I believe yourfaith is complete.
  • 00:23:11.826 --> 00:23:14.061
  • I have had situations over andover in my life where, you know,
  • 00:23:14.094 --> 00:23:19.200
  • I got--first of all, you've gotto be careful not to call what
  • 00:23:19.233 --> 00:23:25.573
  • I'm preaching on insignificantconcerning your situation.
  • 00:23:25.606 --> 00:23:29.477

  • than the plan you came up with,that they're probably more
  • 00:23:43.724 --> 00:23:46.994
  • significant than the actionyou planned on taking.
  • 00:23:47.027 --> 00:23:52.833
