  • you to be.
  • 00:00:15.184 --> 00:00:16.485
  • But if your emotions are outof the control, you get out.
  • 00:00:16.518 --> 00:00:17.853
  • So, in trouble, the best thingfor you to do is to choose the
  • 00:00:17.886 --> 00:00:20.255
  • right emotion so you can get towhere God's trying to get you.

  • Creflo: All right, now watchthis. Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:01:46.475 --> 00:01:48.377
  • Deuteronomy 28,verse 45 through 48,
  • 00:01:48.410 --> 00:01:54.249
  • I want to show you this.
  • 00:01:54.283 --> 00:01:55.684
  • Deuteronomy 28:45 through 48.
  • 00:01:55.717 --> 00:01:57.352
  • Now, this ispretty, pretty amazing.
  • 00:01:57.386 --> 00:02:01.690
  • Again, trying to convinceyou that you have control
  • 00:02:01.723 --> 00:02:03.725
  • over these emotions.
  • 00:02:03.759 --> 00:02:05.761
  • Now, we are goingback to the law.
  • 00:02:05.794 --> 00:02:09.498
  • And so, under the law,sin was judged harshly.
  • 00:02:09.531 --> 00:02:16.838
  • But under the grace of God,which we live under the covenant
  • 00:02:16.872 --> 00:02:19.808
  • of grace, God'sjudgment is on Jesus.
  • 00:02:19.841 --> 00:02:26.348
  • Even though you don'tbehave right all the time,
  • 00:02:26.381 --> 00:02:29.918
  • his judgment still is on Jesus.
  • 00:02:29.952 --> 00:02:33.555
  • But it's good to see howGod views the thing
  • 00:02:33.589 --> 00:02:37.259
  • even under a law.
  • 00:02:37.292 --> 00:02:39.161
  • And so, I want to show youthis because this is quite
  • 00:02:39.194 --> 00:02:41.597
  • fascinating to me.
  • 00:02:41.630 --> 00:02:43.065
  • It just shows you thatGod is not an unjust God.
  • 00:02:43.098 --> 00:02:47.135
  • So, look at this.
  • 00:02:47.169 --> 00:02:49.438
  • Deuteronomy 28,verse 45, what did I say?
  • 00:02:49.471 --> 00:02:58.814
  • Okay, 45 through 48,45 through 48.
  • 00:02:58.847 --> 00:03:04.386
  • "Moreover all these curses shallcome upon thee and shall pursue
  • 00:03:04.419 --> 00:03:07.723
  • thee, and they'll overtake thee,till thou be destroyed because
  • 00:03:07.756 --> 00:03:11.893
  • thou hearkenedst is not untothe voice of the Lord thy God,
  • 00:03:11.927 --> 00:03:15.697
  • to keep his commandmentsand his statutes which
  • 00:03:15.731 --> 00:03:17.699
  • he commanded thee."
  • 00:03:17.733 --> 00:03:19.234
  • So, they're being judged fornot keeping the commandments.
  • 00:03:19.268 --> 00:03:22.170
  • And he says, "And they shall beupon thee for a sign and for a
  • 00:03:22.204 --> 00:03:27.876
  • wonder and upon thy seed foreverbecause thou servedst not the
  • 00:03:27.909 --> 00:03:32.214
  • Lord thy God with joyfulnessand with gladness of heart,
  • 00:03:32.247 --> 00:03:35.584
  • for the abundanceof all things."
  • 00:03:35.617 --> 00:03:37.185
  • Stop, did you see that?
  • 00:03:37.219 --> 00:03:38.820
  • He said, "Because you didn'tserve the Lord with joyfulness,
  • 00:03:38.854 --> 00:03:41.657
  • emotion, and you didn'tserve the Lord with gladness,
  • 00:03:41.690 --> 00:03:46.328
  • emotion, for all thethings he'd done."
  • 00:03:46.361 --> 00:03:48.196
  • You know what he just said?
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:49.631
  • He says they're getting readyto be judged because they didn't
  • 00:03:49.665 --> 00:03:52.267
  • serve God withthe right emotions.
  • 00:03:52.301 --> 00:03:55.404
  • They're getting ready to bejudged because they didn't serve
  • 00:03:55.437 --> 00:03:57.973
  • God with the right emotions forall the things that he's done.
  • 00:03:58.006 --> 00:04:00.575
  • He says, "Therefore shaltthou," here's the judgment,
  • 00:04:00.609 --> 00:04:02.911
  • he says, "Now, because youdidn't serve God with the
  • 00:04:02.944 --> 00:04:05.080
  • correct emotions, you didn'tchoose the right emotions,
  • 00:04:05.113 --> 00:04:07.916
  • joyfulness and gladness,therefore shalt thou serve
  • 00:04:07.949 --> 00:04:11.420
  • your enemies which theLord shall send."
  • 00:04:11.453 --> 00:04:15.257
  • And what are theseenemies going to look like?
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:18.727
  • In hunger, 'cause youdidn't serve him with
  • 00:04:18.760 --> 00:04:21.463
  • the right emotions.
  • 00:04:21.496 --> 00:04:22.798
  • Thirst 'cause you didn't servehim with the right emotions.
  • 00:04:22.831 --> 00:04:25.434
  • Nakedness 'cause youdidn't serve him with
  • 00:04:25.467 --> 00:04:26.768
  • the right emotion.
  • 00:04:26.802 --> 00:04:28.103
  • You're going to be in want ofall things because you didn't
  • 00:04:28.136 --> 00:04:31.206
  • serve him with the rightemotions for all the
  • 00:04:31.239 --> 00:04:32.541
  • things he did.
  • 00:04:32.574 --> 00:04:33.875
  • "And he shall put a yoke ofiron upon thy neck until he have
  • 00:04:33.909 --> 00:04:37.713
  • destroyed thee," all becauseyou didn't serve him
  • 00:04:37.746 --> 00:04:41.116
  • with the right emotions?
  • 00:04:41.149 --> 00:04:42.851
  • All right, now that'snot even, you know,
  • 00:04:42.884 --> 00:04:46.088
  • what we deal with today, butthat's under that covenant.
  • 00:04:46.121 --> 00:04:48.323
  • But here's the pointof me showing you that.
  • 00:04:48.357 --> 00:04:50.592
  • And some of you better be gladyou ain't under that covenant.
  • 00:04:50.625 --> 00:04:54.796
  • All the stuff thatGod does for you,
  • 00:04:54.830 --> 00:04:56.131
  • how sometimes you don'thave a right attitude,
  • 00:04:56.164 --> 00:04:57.933
  • and you're not grateful,and you murmur,
  • 00:04:57.966 --> 00:05:00.001
  • and you complain,and you go around,
  • 00:05:00.035 --> 00:05:02.571
  • and you want more, and youcan't be thankful for what he's
  • 00:05:02.604 --> 00:05:04.339
  • already done.
  • 00:05:04.373 --> 00:05:05.874
  • If we were under that covenant,a lot of us would be destroyed.
  • 00:05:05.907 --> 00:05:10.278
  • But thank God we'renot under that covenant.
  • 00:05:10.312 --> 00:05:12.347
  • Somebody say,"Thank God for Jesus."
  • 00:05:12.381 --> 00:05:15.350
  • But what was he saying here?
  • 00:05:15.384 --> 00:05:16.985
  • What he says was this.
  • 00:05:17.018 --> 00:05:18.453
  • If God will judge people forhaving the wrong emotions in
  • 00:05:18.487 --> 00:05:24.493
  • serving him, that only concludesthat they could have made a
  • 00:05:24.526 --> 00:05:28.797
  • choice to havethe right emotions.
  • 00:05:28.830 --> 00:05:32.401
  • They could have decidedand chosen to have
  • 00:05:32.434 --> 00:05:35.070
  • the correct emotion.
  • 00:05:35.103 --> 00:05:36.405
  • It would not be just, it wouldbe an unjust thing to do to
  • 00:05:36.438 --> 00:05:40.108
  • judge somebody for somethingthey did if they didn't have the
  • 00:05:40.142 --> 00:05:44.546
  • authority to dosomething differently.
  • 00:05:44.579 --> 00:05:48.483
  • They had the authorityand they had the choice
  • 00:05:48.517 --> 00:05:51.052
  • to choose the right feelings.
  • 00:05:51.086 --> 00:05:54.256
  • They could've chosenthe right feelings,
  • 00:05:54.289 --> 00:05:56.391
  • just like you and I canchoose the right feelings.
  • 00:05:56.425 --> 00:05:58.894
  • They didn't choosethe right feelings,
  • 00:05:58.927 --> 00:06:01.363
  • and they were judged for notchoosing the right feelings
  • 00:06:01.396 --> 00:06:04.599
  • 'cause they could havechosen the right feelings.
  • 00:06:04.633 --> 00:06:08.603
  • So, don't come telling me,"I can't help how I feel."
  • 00:06:08.637 --> 00:06:10.672
  • How many of youheard that before?
  • 00:06:10.705 --> 00:06:12.607
  • You know you heard that before.
  • 00:06:12.641 --> 00:06:14.176
  • "Well, I can't help how I feel."Yes, you can.
  • 00:06:14.209 --> 00:06:18.113
  • What you mean--you know, 'causemy mom and dad will get the belt
  • 00:06:18.146 --> 00:06:22.250
  • and the switch and say,"Well, let me help you.
  • 00:06:22.284 --> 00:06:23.885
  • Let me help you--let me--"
  • 00:06:23.919 --> 00:06:28.190
  • [laughs]
  • 00:06:28.223 --> 00:06:29.624
  • Everybody in the neighborhood
  • 00:06:30.992 --> 00:06:32.294
  • had hedges, acommunity with hedges.
  • 00:06:32.327 --> 00:06:35.030
  • Didn't have no grass,but they had them hedges, boy.
  • 00:06:35.063 --> 00:06:37.332
  • You could have made adecision to do that.
  • 00:06:41.069 --> 00:06:42.838
  • You could have made adecision to choose it.
  • 00:06:42.871 --> 00:06:44.172
  • Now, go to SaintJohn chapter 14, verse 1.
  • 00:06:44.206 --> 00:06:47.843
  • Saint John 14, verse 1.Again, you can choose.
  • 00:06:47.876 --> 00:06:53.181
  • That's an amazing, amazingrevelation to me is the fact,
  • 00:06:53.215 --> 00:06:56.885
  • how long have we beenlied to about our feelings?
  • 00:06:56.918 --> 00:07:00.188
  • "There's nothing Ican do about it."
  • 00:07:00.222 --> 00:07:02.757
  • You can.
  • 00:07:02.791 --> 00:07:04.526
  • You can choose whatthe feelings you want.
  • 00:07:04.559 --> 00:07:06.194
  • He says here, he says, "Letnot your heart be troubled."
  • 00:07:06.228 --> 00:07:08.129
  • Don't let yourheart be troubled.
  • 00:07:08.163 --> 00:07:12.167
  • That sounds likeyou have authority, right?
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:15.737
  • Don't you let youheart be troubled.
  • 00:07:15.770 --> 00:07:18.740
  • Well, why would he even saysomething like that if you had
  • 00:07:18.773 --> 00:07:22.077
  • no authority over whether ornot you felt troubled or not?
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:26.982
  • I wrote a book years ago onhow to trouble your trouble.
  • 00:07:27.015 --> 00:07:29.618
  • And it talked about how youdon't have to be--even though
  • 00:07:29.651 --> 00:07:32.621
  • you're in trouble, you don'thave to be troubled because you
  • 00:07:32.654 --> 00:07:35.790
  • can choose to have peacein the midst of trouble.
  • 00:07:35.824 --> 00:07:39.294
  • Remember, if youcontrol your emotions,
  • 00:07:39.327 --> 00:07:41.463
  • you're going to get to thedestination that God wants
  • 00:07:41.496 --> 00:07:44.466
  • you to be.
  • 00:07:44.499 --> 00:07:45.800
  • But if your emotions are outof the control, you get out.
  • 00:07:45.834 --> 00:07:47.168
  • So, in trouble, the best thingfor you to do is to choose the
  • 00:07:47.202 --> 00:07:49.571
  • right emotion so you can get towhere God's trying to get you.
  • 00:07:49.604 --> 00:07:53.775
  • Have some self-controlso you can get to where
  • 00:07:53.808 --> 00:07:55.944
  • he want to get you.
  • 00:07:55.977 --> 00:07:57.279
  • But we keep letting ourself-control take us back
  • 00:07:57.312 --> 00:07:59.381
  • and take us into all ofthese things that,
  • 00:07:59.414 --> 00:08:01.850
  • when we get there, wesay, "How did I get here?
  • 00:08:01.883 --> 00:08:04.653
  • How did this happen?
  • 00:08:04.686 --> 00:08:06.621
  • Why do I keep ending upwith the same kind of no
  • 00:08:06.655 --> 00:08:09.024
  • good for nothing man?"
  • 00:08:09.057 --> 00:08:11.493
  • There's a reason for that.
  • 00:08:13.461 --> 00:08:15.130
  • The level of a woman'sself-esteem will always draw
  • 00:08:15.163 --> 00:08:17.532
  • the type of person to her.
  • 00:08:17.566 --> 00:08:22.037
  • Yep, you bettersee yourself better.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:26.708
  • You better see yourself betterif don't nobody agree with the
  • 00:08:26.741 --> 00:08:28.577
  • better that yousee about yourself.
  • 00:08:28.610 --> 00:08:34.583
  • You need to let that joker know,you know,
  • 00:08:34.616 --> 00:08:36.284
  • you don't even understandwhat you getting.
  • 00:08:36.318 --> 00:08:38.787
  • "I know I'm fine and I knowI'm awesome and smart.
  • 00:08:38.820 --> 00:08:42.824
  • And I know I'm amazing,alright?
  • 00:08:42.857 --> 00:08:46.127
  • I might not have no three inchwaist
  • 00:08:46.161 --> 00:08:48.763
  • but, you know, whatchu gonna dowith a three inch waist,
  • 00:08:48.797 --> 00:08:50.532
  • you need a little somethingto hold onto,
  • 00:08:50.565 --> 00:08:52.334
  • you don't need no three inchwaist."
  • 00:08:52.367 --> 00:08:53.935
  • [laughing]
  • 00:08:53.969 --> 00:08:55.770
  • Amen. Three inch waist,something the matter with you.
  • 00:08:55.804 --> 00:09:01.176
  • I know some of you are like huh?Where'd that come from?
  • 00:09:01.209 --> 00:09:05.480
  • I don't know.
  • 00:09:05.513 --> 00:09:09.217
  • All right now.
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.552
  • In fact, go to Deuteronomy 30,let me--I think this is where
  • 00:09:10.585 --> 00:09:13.254
  • that came from, Deuteronomy 30verse--.
  • 00:09:13.288 --> 00:09:17.993
  • Deuteronomy 30, 19.
  • 00:09:18.026 --> 00:09:20.395
  • Yeah, "And I call heaven andearth to record this day against
  • 00:09:20.428 --> 00:09:23.231
  • you, that I have set thee beforeyou--I've set before you life
  • 00:09:23.264 --> 00:09:26.501
  • and death," choice now.
  • 00:09:26.534 --> 00:09:28.837
  • "I've set before youlife and death," choice, choice.
  • 00:09:28.870 --> 00:09:32.073
  • "I've set before youblessing and cursings," choice.
  • 00:09:32.107 --> 00:09:36.945
  • This is awesomebecause God says,
  • 00:09:36.978 --> 00:09:38.279
  • "I'm setting thechoices before you."
  • 00:09:38.313 --> 00:09:41.149
  • And then he says,"Before I stop,
  • 00:09:41.182 --> 00:09:42.851
  • I'm going to tellyou what to choose."
  • 00:09:42.884 --> 00:09:48.723
  • And then he says,"Therefore choose life."
  • 00:09:48.757 --> 00:09:54.129
  • It's almost like God was saying,"I set before you life and
  • 00:09:54.162 --> 00:09:57.132
  • death, blessing and cursing.
  • 00:09:57.165 --> 00:09:58.466
  • And if you too dumb toknow what to choose,
  • 00:09:58.500 --> 00:10:02.704
  • choose life, thatboth thou--"
  • 00:10:02.737 --> 00:10:07.075
  • Look at this, look at the powerof your choice.
  • 00:10:07.108 --> 00:10:08.576
  • "Thou and your seed may liveand prosper and be successful
  • 00:10:08.610 --> 00:10:15.817
  • because you madethe right choice."
  • 00:10:15.850 --> 00:10:17.952
  • Now, I believe when youchoose life--he says
  • 00:10:17.986 --> 00:10:20.121
  • and recommends choose life.
  • 00:10:20.155 --> 00:10:21.623
  • I believe when you choose life,you can't talk about choosing
  • 00:10:21.656 --> 00:10:23.792
  • life and not choosingemotional stability.
  • 00:10:23.825 --> 00:10:27.328
  • It's not--it's not life tonot have stable emotions.
  • 00:10:27.362 --> 00:10:31.866
  • It's not life to not haveauthority and a choice where
  • 00:10:31.900 --> 00:10:36.104
  • your feelings are concerned.
  • 00:10:36.137 --> 00:10:38.973
  • So, involved in choosing lifeis choosing emotional stability.
  • 00:10:39.007 --> 00:10:43.311
  • You know, I have a right tochoose whether or not I am going
  • 00:10:43.344 --> 00:10:47.582
  • to be in control of my emotions,or I'm going to have a right to
  • 00:10:47.615 --> 00:10:51.119
  • choose whether or notI'm not going to be in
  • 00:10:51.152 --> 00:10:53.421
  • control of my emotions.
  • 00:10:53.455 --> 00:10:54.956
  • You have a right to choose.You have a right to choose.
  • 00:10:54.989 --> 00:10:58.026
  • So, turn to two peopleand say, "I have a right
  • 00:10:58.059 --> 00:10:59.694
  • to choose how I feel."
  • 00:10:59.728 --> 00:11:01.763
  • Look at Romanschapter 8 and verse 6,
  • 00:11:07.368 --> 00:11:11.072
  • Romans chapter 8 and verse 6.
  • 00:11:11.106 --> 00:11:12.640
  • I have a right tochoose how I feel.
  • 00:11:12.674 --> 00:11:14.776
  • Somebody can come and cuss youout and maybe spit a little bit
  • 00:11:14.809 --> 00:11:18.146
  • in your face.
  • 00:11:18.179 --> 00:11:20.014
  • And you still--see, youknow how you responded, right?
  • 00:11:20.048 --> 00:11:22.851
  • You responded because you havetraditionally marked in stone
  • 00:11:22.884 --> 00:11:26.788
  • how you're going torespond emotionally.
  • 00:11:26.821 --> 00:11:29.724
  • Wish you would.
  • 00:11:29.758 --> 00:11:31.593
  • And all of that is thatsame part of the fear of being
  • 00:11:34.929 --> 00:11:37.499
  • disrespected that causes you torespond as if the disrespect has
  • 00:11:37.532 --> 00:11:40.935
  • already occurred.
  • 00:11:40.969 --> 00:11:42.971
  • And it just gets you in trouble.
  • 00:11:43.004 --> 00:11:44.606
  • It's the story of the guywho purchases the new car,
  • 00:11:44.639 --> 00:11:47.742
  • he's driving downold national highway.
  • 00:11:47.776 --> 00:11:49.844
  • Somebody hits hiscar from behind,
  • 00:11:49.878 --> 00:11:52.147
  • you jump out of thecar and you--you know,
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:55.116
  • you chose your emotions,it was just real quick.
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:56.851
  • You jumped out of the car like,"No you didn't hit my car."
  • 00:11:56.885 --> 00:11:59.187
  • You were very aggressive,and then you hit the guy.
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.122
  • And the police was pulling upabout that time and saw
  • 00:12:01.156 --> 00:12:03.424
  • you assault the guy.
  • 00:12:03.458 --> 00:12:04.893
  • And it was on aFriday, and before you left,
  • 00:12:04.926 --> 00:12:06.528
  • your boss said, "Youcan't be late no more.
  • 00:12:06.561 --> 00:12:09.030
  • And if you're late again, I'mgoing to have to let you go."
  • 00:12:09.063 --> 00:12:11.633
  • And on that Thursday,your wife said,
  • 00:12:11.666 --> 00:12:13.434
  • "Don't lose your job.
  • 00:12:13.468 --> 00:12:14.936
  • I'm tired of going through this.
  • 00:12:14.969 --> 00:12:16.304
  • You lose your job,I'm going to go."
  • 00:12:16.337 --> 00:12:17.806
  • And so, theyarrested you for assault,
  • 00:12:17.839 --> 00:12:19.741
  • put you in jail,it was the weekend,
  • 00:12:19.774 --> 00:12:21.376
  • the judge ain'tcoming back till Tuesday,
  • 00:12:21.409 --> 00:12:23.545
  • you lost your job on Mondayand your wife on Tuesday.
  • 00:12:23.578 --> 00:12:28.917
  • And you sat there in thecell and you ask yourself this
  • 00:12:28.950 --> 00:12:30.752
  • question, "How did I get here?"
  • 00:12:30.785 --> 00:12:33.655
  • The answer, your emotionsdrove you all the way there.
  • 00:12:33.688 --> 00:12:38.860
  • How many times are you goingto put in jeopardy the blessing
  • 00:12:40.762 --> 00:12:44.065
  • that God has for your life?
  • 00:12:44.098 --> 00:12:45.834
  • But you can't ever walk into itbecause as soon as you're like a
  • 00:12:45.867 --> 00:12:48.870
  • step away, your emotions froma negative place lead you away
  • 00:12:48.903 --> 00:12:53.174
  • from the designed place becauseyou have no self-control,
  • 00:12:53.208 --> 00:12:57.178
  • no temperance, you won'tpractice temperance because you
  • 00:12:57.212 --> 00:13:00.248
  • see that as being weak.
  • 00:13:00.281 --> 00:13:01.749
  • Somehow in your mind,you think by losing it,
  • 00:13:01.783 --> 00:13:04.285
  • it shows how bigof a man you are.
  • 00:13:04.319 --> 00:13:07.222
  • That's not the truth.
  • 00:13:07.255 --> 00:13:08.723
  • It shows you're the weakestpunk on the planet by that time
  • 00:13:08.756 --> 00:13:11.559
  • 'cause you can't evencontrol what you're
  • 00:13:11.593 --> 00:13:14.462
  • supposed to have control over.
  • 00:13:14.495 --> 00:13:17.565
  • And like laughter,you're quiet because
  • 00:13:24.639 --> 00:13:25.940
  • you know thisis the truth.
  • 00:13:25.974 --> 00:13:30.345
  • Romans chapter 8 and 6 says,"For to be carnally minded is
  • 00:13:30.378 --> 00:13:33.648
  • death, but to be spirituallyminded," look what happens,
  • 00:13:33.681 --> 00:13:37.385
  • "it's life and it's peace."
  • 00:13:37.418 --> 00:13:41.322
  • Here you have a choice.
  • 00:13:41.356 --> 00:13:42.790
  • When you talkabout carnality here,
  • 00:13:42.824 --> 00:13:44.726
  • it's literally referring to incontext here to be dominated
  • 00:13:44.759 --> 00:13:48.129
  • by your senses.
  • 00:13:48.162 --> 00:13:51.099
  • It's like, you know,you're allowing what
  • 00:13:51.132 --> 00:13:54.135
  • you see to dominatehow you feel.
  • 00:13:54.168 --> 00:13:56.838
  • You're allowing what youhear to dominate how you feel.
  • 00:13:56.871 --> 00:13:59.540
  • You're allowing, youknow, what you smell
  • 00:13:59.574 --> 00:14:02.944
  • to dominate how you feel.
  • 00:14:02.977 --> 00:14:04.979
  • Somebody says, "How that works?"
  • 00:14:05.013 --> 00:14:06.748
  • I mean, somebody mightnot be smelling all right,
  • 00:14:06.781 --> 00:14:08.216
  • but you know, yougot to be mean.
  • 00:14:08.249 --> 00:14:11.619
  • And you don't know they justgot put out of their house,
  • 00:14:11.653 --> 00:14:13.187
  • and they've beenstruggling to do stuff,
  • 00:14:13.221 --> 00:14:14.622
  • and it's dominatingyour feelings.
  • 00:14:14.656 --> 00:14:17.125
  • So, what happens is to bedominated by just your emotions
  • 00:14:17.158 --> 00:14:22.297
  • and your feelings, it'll leadto death or separation from
  • 00:14:22.330 --> 00:14:25.900
  • the great things that God'strying to do in your life.
  • 00:14:25.934 --> 00:14:28.169
  • But he says if you'respiritually minded,
  • 00:14:28.202 --> 00:14:30.505
  • wherever your mind goes,your emotions going to follow.
  • 00:14:30.538 --> 00:14:33.841
  • If you're spiritually minded,it'll lead to peace and life.
  • 00:14:33.875 --> 00:14:39.414
  • So, now you have to choose to bespiritually minded and allow the
  • 00:14:39.447 --> 00:14:42.617
  • Word of God--infact, go to John 6:63.
  • 00:14:42.650 --> 00:14:45.119
  • What does it mean when I talkabout being spiritually minded?
  • 00:14:45.153 --> 00:14:47.388
  • What are the--what's the essenceof being spiritually minded?
  • 00:14:47.422 --> 00:14:51.092
  • John chapter 6:63.
  • 00:14:51.125 --> 00:14:54.262
  • Because in Romans8, it talks about,
  • 00:14:54.295 --> 00:14:56.297
  • you know, when we'respiritually minded,
  • 00:14:56.331 --> 00:14:59.434
  • we can produce emotionalstability when we're
  • 00:14:59.467 --> 00:15:01.736
  • spiritually minded.
  • 00:15:01.769 --> 00:15:03.771
  • Peace and life, life and peace.
  • 00:15:03.805 --> 00:15:05.540
  • He says, "It is thespirit that quickeneth;
  • 00:15:05.573 --> 00:15:07.408
  • the flesh profiteth nothing.
  • 00:15:07.442 --> 00:15:09.744
  • The words that I speakunto you, they are spirit
  • 00:15:09.777 --> 00:15:14.115
  • and they are life."
  • 00:15:14.148 --> 00:15:16.818
  • The question is, will youchoose to allow the Word of God
  • 00:15:16.851 --> 00:15:20.788
  • to dominateyour emotions?
  • 00:15:20.822 --> 00:15:24.492
  • It's a choice.
  • 00:15:24.525 --> 00:15:25.827
  • You're going to be dominated bythe carnal or you're going to be
  • 00:15:25.860 --> 00:15:29.263
  • dominated by the Word of God.
  • 00:15:29.297 --> 00:15:32.400
  • And you think about it.
  • 00:15:32.433 --> 00:15:33.801
  • In that time where you'rechoosing the type of emotions
  • 00:15:33.835 --> 00:15:37.071
  • and how you're going to feel,when was the last time you said,
  • 00:15:37.105 --> 00:15:40.675
  • "Hold on a minute,let me go to the Word.
  • 00:15:40.708 --> 00:15:42.610
  • Hold on a minute,let me go and pray.
  • 00:15:42.643 --> 00:15:44.912
  • Hold on a minute, let mepause and stick this tape in"?
  • 00:15:44.946 --> 00:15:49.117
  • It works, the issue iswe just don't do it.
  • 00:15:49.150 --> 00:15:53.021
  • It works, it'll calm you down,it'll get you to a place where
  • 00:15:53.054 --> 00:15:56.457
  • you can think, but you justdon't do it because I guess if
  • 00:15:56.491 --> 00:15:59.660
  • you don't honor that Word andexalt it enough for you to say,
  • 00:15:59.694 --> 00:16:05.633
  • "Well, this is what I'm goingto turn to in the time of great
  • 00:16:05.666 --> 00:16:08.569
  • temptation and in the time ofbeing tempted to choose the
  • 00:16:08.603 --> 00:16:13.908
  • wrong emotion," that the Wordof God can help you to always
  • 00:16:13.941 --> 00:16:17.745
  • choose the right one.
  • 00:16:17.779 --> 00:16:19.180
  • But not many people reverencethe Word enough to go to it
  • 00:16:19.213 --> 00:16:22.717
  • when they need it.
  • 00:16:22.750 --> 00:16:24.485
  • You know, the Bible doesn'tjust tell us to have--choose the
  • 00:16:24.519 --> 00:16:27.422
  • right emotion, you know,when everything's going right.
  • 00:16:27.455 --> 00:16:31.492
  • He tells us to choose the rightemotion even when things are
  • 00:16:31.526 --> 00:16:34.529
  • not going right.
  • 00:16:34.562 --> 00:16:36.898
  • Look at John 16:33, John16:33, choose the right--no,
  • 00:16:36.931 --> 00:16:42.236
  • no, let's go toPhilippians first.
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:43.604
  • Philippians chapter 4.
  • 00:16:43.638 --> 00:16:46.307
  • Philippians chapter 4, verse 6and 7 because here I want to
  • 00:16:46.340 --> 00:16:49.377
  • mention something here.
  • 00:16:49.410 --> 00:16:51.412
  • I think it's so importantas Christian people that we
  • 00:16:51.446 --> 00:16:53.681
  • understand that we need to beaccountable for our feelings.
  • 00:16:53.714 --> 00:16:58.820
  • Don't try to make thedevil responsible for it,
  • 00:16:58.853 --> 00:17:01.856
  • we need to beaccountable for our emotions.
  • 00:17:01.889 --> 00:17:04.892
  • You need to acceptthe accountability
  • 00:17:04.926 --> 00:17:07.328
  • for your emotions.
  • 00:17:07.361 --> 00:17:08.830
  • 'Cause if you're out ofcontrol and you beat your wife,
  • 00:17:08.863 --> 00:17:11.165
  • all I'm going to hear is excusesof why you beat your wife.
  • 00:17:11.199 --> 00:17:13.835
  • Nobody want to hear no excuses.
  • 00:17:13.868 --> 00:17:16.204
  • You got to beaccountable for your emotions.
  • 00:17:16.237 --> 00:17:18.739
  • "Well, I decided to get in afight and beat somebody up."
  • 00:17:18.773 --> 00:17:22.977
  • You got to beaccountable for your emotions.
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:26.080
  • "Well, I decided to shootsomebody 'cause I don't--they
  • 00:17:26.114 --> 00:17:28.716
  • disrespected me."
  • 00:17:28.749 --> 00:17:30.051
  • You got to beaccountable for your emotions.
  • 00:17:30.084 --> 00:17:32.587
  • And then this preciouslife ends up in jail,
  • 00:17:32.620 --> 00:17:34.155
  • never fulfills the will ofGod for his life because his
  • 00:17:34.188 --> 00:17:36.390
  • emotions took himout of the play,

  • took him out of the place ofwhere he could do what he needs
  • 00:17:39.127 --> 00:17:41.329
  • to do because you won't beaccountable for your emotions.
  • 00:17:41.362 --> 00:17:43.831
  • And that's a lot ofthings with Christians,
  • 00:17:43.865 --> 00:17:45.199
  • they don't want to beaccountable for nothing.
  • 00:17:45.233 --> 00:17:46.868
  • They want to blame it onGod or blame it on the devil,
  • 00:17:46.901 --> 00:17:48.903
  • but I don't want anyaccountability for this thing.
  • 00:17:48.936 --> 00:17:52.306
  • It's either God or the devil,but you ain't have nothing
  • 00:17:52.340 --> 00:17:54.575
  • to do with it.
  • 00:17:54.609 --> 00:17:56.177
  • Well, if that's the case,why did he give you free moral
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:58.312

  • 00:17:58.346 --> 00:18:01.849
  • And if you're notchoosing or making a choice,
  • 00:18:01.883 --> 00:18:03.351
  • oh, you want to choose and makea choice to do what you want to,
  • 00:18:03.384 --> 00:18:05.286

  • But now, but now whensomething bad happens,
  • 00:18:09.857 --> 00:18:12.460
  • "Well, that was thedevil or that was God."
  • 00:18:12.493 --> 00:18:15.296
  • And God's like, "Whotold you to get that car
  • 00:18:15.329 --> 00:18:16.664

  • Turn to your neighbor and say,"It's time to be accountable
  • 00:18:33.814 --> 00:18:35.216
  • for our emotions."
  • 00:18:35.249 --> 00:18:37.318
  • Look at verse 6, he says, "Becareful for nothing," or don't

  • Look at verse 7.
  • 00:19:28.035 --> 00:19:29.570
  • He says, "And thepeace of God," he says,
  • 00:19:29.604 --> 00:19:31.939
  • "When you do that in the middleof trouble rather than worry and
  • 00:19:31.973 --> 00:19:34.875

  • No, he's like, "Whenit's not going right."
  • 00:20:37.738 --> 00:20:39.940
