  • of 3 John verse 2.
  • 00:01:34.674 --> 00:01:37.877
  • I'm gonna give a little reviewbefore we get into today's
  • 00:01:37.911 --> 00:01:40.647
  • continuation of the series,"Gaining Authority over Your
  • 00:01:40.680 --> 00:01:46.853
  • Emotions," gainingauthority over your emotions.
  • 00:01:46.886 --> 00:01:53.893
  • Now, for the most part, churchesspend a lot of time talking
  • 00:01:53.927 --> 00:01:57.197
  • about, you know, your spirit andspiritual things and how to pray
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:02:02.001
  • and what you ought to do,what you ought not to do, but we
  • 00:02:02.035 --> 00:02:05.805
  • spend very little time talkingabout one of the most vital
  • 00:02:05.838 --> 00:02:09.342
  • areas of our life, andthat is our emotions.
  • 00:02:09.375 --> 00:02:13.880
  • You see, we all have 'em, so weprobably need to talk about 'em,
  • 00:02:13.913 --> 00:02:18.351
  • just, you know, figure out howto deal with our feelings, how
  • 00:02:18.384 --> 00:02:20.620
  • to deal with our emotions.
  • 00:02:20.653 --> 00:02:23.590
  • We all have emotions, but,unfortunately, sometimes they
  • 00:02:23.623 --> 00:02:26.559
  • have us, and God has given usemotions to enjoy life, but he
  • 00:02:26.593 --> 00:02:32.498
  • wants us to operate inemotional stability.
  • 00:02:32.532 --> 00:02:37.103
  • He never designed the systemwhere you were to be dominated
  • 00:02:37.136 --> 00:02:41.908
  • and where you are to be masteredby your emotions, and yet for a
  • 00:02:41.941 --> 00:02:47.747
  • lot of Christians, because wedon't talk about it and because
  • 00:02:47.780 --> 00:02:50.416
  • we don't understand it and'cause we don't know where it
  • 00:02:50.450 --> 00:02:52.518
  • fits in our everyday lives,we're experiencing a lot of
  • 00:02:52.552 --> 00:02:57.190
  • traumatic feelings and emotions,a lot of hurt and depression.
  • 00:02:57.223 --> 00:03:01.995
  • And not only that, but evenjoy and all that kinda stuff and
  • 00:03:02.028 --> 00:03:05.531
  • peace, but yet we don'tunderstand where emotions fit in
  • 00:03:05.565 --> 00:03:10.903
  • the life of the believer.
  • 00:03:10.937 --> 00:03:12.705
  • And I am telling you that if youcan control your emotions, you
  • 00:03:12.739 --> 00:03:16.442
  • can do anything in life, but I'malso telling you if you cannot
  • 00:03:16.476 --> 00:03:20.446
  • control your emotions then youwill attempt to try to control
  • 00:03:20.480 --> 00:03:23.883
  • some other person.
  • 00:03:23.916 --> 00:03:26.319
  • God has given us authority overeverything that he created, but
  • 00:03:26.352 --> 00:03:31.457
  • he's never given us authority totry to control other people, but
  • 00:03:31.491 --> 00:03:36.195
  • I'm telling you right now whenyou are out of control and when
  • 00:03:36.229 --> 00:03:39.365
  • you can't control your ownemotions, you will attempt to
  • 00:03:39.399 --> 00:03:43.002
  • try to control other people.
  • 00:03:43.036 --> 00:03:45.538
  • So, this is all tothe single people.
  • 00:03:45.571 --> 00:03:47.640
  • If you meet people who are outof control emotionally, they
  • 00:03:47.674 --> 00:03:50.877
  • don't make goodcandidates for marriage.
  • 00:03:50.910 --> 00:03:54.514
  • They need to get their emotionsin control before they go out
  • 00:03:54.547 --> 00:03:57.917
  • and, you know, try to doanything where
  • 00:03:57.950 --> 00:04:00.620
  • you're concerned, amen?
  • 00:04:00.653 --> 00:04:01.988
  • "Yeah, but, Pastor, youdon't understand they cute."
  • 00:04:02.021 --> 00:04:04.123
  • Cute ain't gotnothing to do with it.
  • 00:04:04.157 --> 00:04:06.492
  • In the middle of the night, ifthey start floating up above the
  • 00:04:06.526 --> 00:04:08.661
  • bed and turning their headaround and--all right, anyway,
  • 00:04:08.695 --> 00:04:13.499
  • so we have emotions, but in thisseries I'm trying to convince
  • 00:04:13.533 --> 00:04:19.639
  • you that you can control them.
  • 00:04:19.672 --> 00:04:22.875
  • I'm trying to convince you thatyour emotions do not--or you do
  • 00:04:22.909 --> 00:04:29.015
  • not have to give your emotionsauthority over your life and
  • 00:04:29.048 --> 00:04:32.352
  • then you're respondingemotionally based on the
  • 00:04:32.385 --> 00:04:34.921
  • situations and circumstancesthat are in your life, so let's
  • 00:04:34.954 --> 00:04:37.990
  • begin in 3 John chapter1, one chapter, verse 2.
  • 00:04:38.024 --> 00:04:42.061
  • And he says, "Beloved, Iwish above all things that thou
  • 00:04:42.095 --> 00:04:45.331
  • mayest prosper and be in health,even as thy soul prospers."
  • 00:04:45.365 --> 00:04:51.504
  • So, here he says your successand prosperity in life is gonna
  • 00:04:51.537 --> 00:04:55.541
  • be based on howsuccessful you are in your soul.
  • 00:04:55.575 --> 00:05:00.380
  • Now, man is a spirit.
  • 00:05:00.413 --> 00:05:03.149
  • He possesses a soul.
  • 00:05:03.182 --> 00:05:04.851
  • He lives in a physical body.
  • 00:05:04.884 --> 00:05:06.319
  • Religiously, we've usedthe word "spirit" and "soul"
  • 00:05:06.352 --> 00:05:09.222
  • interchangeably as if theyare the same, and they are not.
  • 00:05:09.255 --> 00:05:12.592
  • You don't have a spirit.
  • 00:05:12.625 --> 00:05:14.627
  • You are a spirit.
  • 00:05:14.660 --> 00:05:15.962
  • You have a soul.You are a spirit being.
  • 00:05:15.995 --> 00:05:18.798
  • Say, "I am a spirit."
  • 00:05:18.831 --> 00:05:20.967
  • Say, "I possess a soul."
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.669
  • Say, "I live in aphysical body."
  • 00:05:23.703 --> 00:05:27.273
  • Now, the soul part of a man isthe--is made up--the soul is
  • 00:05:27.306 --> 00:05:32.545
  • made up of the mind, the will,watch this, and the emotions.
  • 00:05:32.578 --> 00:05:37.850
  • Your soul is made up of yourthinker, your feeler, your
  • 00:05:37.884 --> 00:05:42.188
  • chooser, and so as goesyour soul, so goes your life.
  • 00:05:42.221 --> 00:05:52.064
  • Now, I wanna add precision tothese things that we've heard
  • 00:05:52.098 --> 00:05:54.534
  • in times past.
  • 00:05:54.567 --> 00:05:56.169
  • As goes youremotions, so goes your life.
  • 00:05:56.202 --> 00:06:01.340
  • Your emotions, if you allowthem, they will take you in
  • 00:06:01.374 --> 00:06:04.977
  • places some good based onthe emotion and some bad
  • 00:06:05.011 --> 00:06:09.549
  • based on the emotion.
  • 00:06:09.582 --> 00:06:12.151
  • That you are kindalike a guy who's surfing.
  • 00:06:12.185 --> 00:06:14.220
  • You'll ride on the wave ofyour emotions, and you've got
  • 00:06:14.253 --> 00:06:17.757
  • to learn how to fall out oflove with your feelings.
  • 00:06:17.790 --> 00:06:25.898
  • In the Amplified it says, "Iwant you to prosper in every
  • 00:06:25.932 --> 00:06:29.969
  • way," in every way, "and [thatyour body] keeps well, even as
  • 00:06:30.002 --> 00:06:37.977
  • your soul keeps well."
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:41.714
  • "Beloved, I pray that you mayprosper in every way and [that
  • 00:06:41.747 --> 00:06:45.451
  • your body] may keep well, evenas [I know] your soul keeps well
  • 00:06:45.485 --> 00:06:49.655
  • and prospers," or have success.
  • 00:06:49.689 --> 00:06:52.258
  • So, here he says, "I want youto be successful in every way."
  • 00:06:52.291 --> 00:06:55.328
  • That's the will of God.
  • 00:06:55.361 --> 00:06:56.996
  • The will of God for your life isto be successful in every way.
  • 00:06:57.029 --> 00:07:00.166
  • See, you've got to know thewill of God for your life.
  • 00:07:00.199 --> 00:07:03.503
  • The will of God is for you tobe successful in every way.
  • 00:07:03.536 --> 00:07:06.572
  • The will of God is foryour body to keep well.
  • 00:07:06.606 --> 00:07:10.042
  • That's God's will, so if you'renot being successful in every
  • 00:07:10.076 --> 00:07:13.980
  • way and if your body is notkeeping well, just by knowing
  • 00:07:14.013 --> 00:07:17.617
  • the will of God you should riseup in your authority and say,
  • 00:07:17.650 --> 00:07:20.953
  • "I'm not putting up with this.
  • 00:07:20.987 --> 00:07:22.655
  • This is not God's will.
  • 00:07:22.688 --> 00:07:24.490
  • His will is for me to besuccessful in every way and for
  • 00:07:24.524 --> 00:07:26.826
  • my body to keep well.
  • 00:07:26.859 --> 00:07:28.461
  • Body, get well.
  • 00:07:28.494 --> 00:07:29.962
  • Line up with the Word of God."
  • 00:07:29.996 --> 00:07:31.430
  • Why?
  • 00:07:31.464 --> 00:07:32.832
  • 'Cause that's God'swill for my life.
  • 00:07:32.865 --> 00:07:35.067
  • Something about recognizing whensomething is God's will for
  • 00:07:35.101 --> 00:07:37.703
  • your life.
  • 00:07:37.737 --> 00:07:39.071
  • There is a passion that comesout of you that says,
  • 00:07:39.105 --> 00:07:41.173
  • "No, I'll not tolerateanything--nothing else in my
  • 00:07:41.207 --> 00:07:44.243
  • life except the will of God,and this is not the will
  • 00:07:44.277 --> 00:07:46.846
  • of God, amen?
  • 00:07:46.879 --> 00:07:48.247
  • God's will is not for me to befailing and go from one place
  • 00:07:48.281 --> 00:07:50.349
  • of failure to another place offailure and try to figure out
  • 00:07:50.383 --> 00:07:52.785
  • what's going onand what's wrong."
  • 00:07:52.818 --> 00:07:54.320
  • That's not God's will.
  • 00:07:54.353 --> 00:07:55.721
  • God's will for your life isto be successful in every way.
  • 00:07:55.755 --> 00:07:59.825
  • He wants your body to keep welland that is what you should be
  • 00:07:59.859 --> 00:08:03.529
  • using your authority tomake happen in your life.
  • 00:08:03.563 --> 00:08:05.631
  • "This is not God's will.
  • 00:08:05.665 --> 00:08:07.099
  • I am gonna align mylife up with God's will."
  • 00:08:07.133 --> 00:08:09.368
  • If you agree withthat, say, "Amen."
  • 00:08:09.402 --> 00:08:11.304
  • And then he says here isthe key to all of this.
  • 00:08:11.337 --> 00:08:14.874
  • The key to all of this isyour soul, and I wanna be
  • 00:08:14.907 --> 00:08:20.146
  • with precision, your emotions,because I believe the attack is
  • 00:08:20.179 --> 00:08:25.051
  • your emotions, your emotions,so let's define again emotions.
  • 00:08:25.084 --> 00:08:31.524
  • They are feelings.
  • 00:08:31.557 --> 00:08:33.392
  • Emotions are feelings onthe inside 'caused by pain
  • 00:08:33.426 --> 00:08:38.698
  • or pleasure to moveyou in a direction.
  • 00:08:38.731 --> 00:08:42.234
  • Feelings on the inside caused bypain or pleasure to move you
  • 00:08:42.268 --> 00:08:45.972
  • in a direction.
  • 00:08:46.005 --> 00:08:47.540
  • When those emotions don't lineup with the Word of God, they
  • 00:08:47.573 --> 00:08:50.376
  • will move you in a directionfrom the will of God for your
  • 00:08:50.409 --> 00:08:54.780
  • life and from thedesign of God for your life.
  • 00:08:54.814 --> 00:08:59.719
  • It will move you away from that,so now--so, it's not okay just
  • 00:08:59.752 --> 00:09:02.488
  • to have negative emotions,because those negative emotions
  • 00:09:02.521 --> 00:09:05.057
  • serve a purpose: to move youaway from the will of God and
  • 00:09:05.091 --> 00:09:09.829
  • the designed purpose foryour life, so I want you
  • 00:09:09.862 --> 00:09:12.632
  • to think about it.
  • 00:09:12.665 --> 00:09:14.467
  • Every time you settle withdepression and you just keep
  • 00:09:14.500 --> 00:09:15.968
  • that emotion, it'sworking on moving you.
  • 00:09:16.002 --> 00:09:19.205
  • Every time you, you know, allowanger and bitterness and hurt,
  • 00:09:19.238 --> 00:09:23.042
  • all of those emotions in anegative sense are designed to
  • 00:09:23.075 --> 00:09:27.480
  • move you away from peace andjoy and all those kinda things.
  • 00:09:27.513 --> 00:09:32.418
  • Now, these emotions that willcome from God, these emotions of
  • 00:09:32.451 --> 00:09:36.555
  • peace, these emotions of joy,they are gonna move you, as
  • 00:09:36.589 --> 00:09:39.792
  • well, but they're gonna move youtowards the designed purpose
  • 00:09:39.825 --> 00:09:43.295
  • for your life.
  • 00:09:43.329 --> 00:09:44.764
  • And that's why you're gonna haveto choose the emotions that will
  • 00:09:44.797 --> 00:09:46.999
  • move you towards thewill of God for your life.
  • 00:09:47.033 --> 00:09:49.902
  • You choose the emotions thatare gonna move you towards
  • 00:09:49.935 --> 00:09:51.837
  • the designated purpose for yourlife, so now even here you have
  • 00:09:51.871 --> 00:09:57.043
  • a choice, but you gottaknow--you've got to know the
  • 00:09:57.076 --> 00:10:00.012
  • objective of negative emotions,and Satan will ride your
  • 00:10:00.046 --> 00:10:04.583
  • emotions like a wave to get youaway from the purpose of God,
  • 00:10:04.617 --> 00:10:09.488
  • the blessing of God.
  • 00:10:09.522 --> 00:10:11.257
  • And nobody everthinks about that.
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:12.792
  • We're just thinking that, well,emotions are just something that
  • 00:10:12.825 --> 00:10:15.628
  • just happens that you don't havecontrol over, and
  • 00:10:15.661 --> 00:10:17.930
  • that's just not it.
  • 00:10:17.963 --> 00:10:19.565
  • And until you come to the placeof understanding that you can
  • 00:10:19.598 --> 00:10:21.400
  • control your emotions, you arenot gonna get to the place of
  • 00:10:21.434 --> 00:10:24.637
  • being a person that willunderstand, well, how did you
  • 00:10:24.670 --> 00:10:28.374
  • end up here and howdid you end up there?
  • 00:10:28.407 --> 00:10:30.543
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:10:30.576 --> 00:10:32.278
  • Your emotions, like a wave,will take you somewhere and the
  • 00:10:32.311 --> 00:10:36.449
  • question for you thismorning is where are you?
  • 00:10:36.482 --> 00:10:39.552
  • Where are you?
  • 00:10:39.585 --> 00:10:40.953
  • How did you get there?
  • 00:10:40.986 --> 00:10:42.588
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:10:42.621 --> 00:10:44.223
  • How did I get backinto drug addiction?
  • 00:10:44.256 --> 00:10:46.559
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:10:46.592 --> 00:10:48.594
  • How did I get to the placewhere this is my third divorce?
  • 00:10:48.627 --> 00:10:51.964
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:10:51.997 --> 00:10:53.733
  • How did I get to the place ofbeing so depressed where
  • 00:10:53.766 --> 00:10:56.902
  • I wanna kill myself?
  • 00:10:56.936 --> 00:10:58.337
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:10:58.370 --> 00:10:59.905
  • How did you get to the placewhere you're now walking in the
  • 00:10:59.939 --> 00:11:02.241
  • will of God for your life?
  • 00:11:02.274 --> 00:11:03.709
  • The rightemotions took you there.
  • 00:11:03.743 --> 00:11:05.978
  • Listen, Satan is going to rideyour emotions because that's the
  • 00:11:06.011 --> 00:11:09.381
  • part of you that will move you.
  • 00:11:09.415 --> 00:11:11.851
  • That's the part of you thatmoves you in a direction.
  • 00:11:11.884 --> 00:11:17.323
  • Now, you cancontrol your emotions.
  • 00:11:17.356 --> 00:11:22.561
  • There are three things I wantedyou to get from last week.
  • 00:11:22.595 --> 00:11:24.597
  • Number one, you cancontrol your emotions.
  • 00:11:24.630 --> 00:11:27.099
  • Say out loud, "I cancontrol my emotions."
  • 00:11:27.133 --> 00:11:29.802
  • The second thing I wanted youto get from last week is that
  • 00:11:29.835 --> 00:11:33.139
  • self-control--this is important.
  • 00:11:33.172 --> 00:11:35.708
  • Self-control is a godly forcethat's been designed by God to
  • 00:11:35.741 --> 00:11:40.346
  • direct our lives where hehas designed them to go, so
  • 00:11:40.379 --> 00:11:45.117
  • self-control, temperance,is so very important.
  • 00:11:45.151 --> 00:11:47.453
  • Why?
  • 00:11:47.486 --> 00:11:48.921
  • God uses that to direct yourlife in the place where he's
  • 00:11:48.954 --> 00:11:51.590
  • designed you to go.
  • 00:11:51.624 --> 00:11:53.192
  • So, every time you're attemptedto be out of control--like I
  • 00:11:53.225 --> 00:11:56.061
  • said before, a man who cannotcontrol his emotions is the
  • 00:11:56.095 --> 00:12:00.132
  • weakest man on the planet.
  • 00:12:00.166 --> 00:12:01.967
  • And if you can operate inself-control and temperance, and
  • 00:12:02.001 --> 00:12:06.038
  • that's a force that God will useto get you to the place where
  • 00:12:06.071 --> 00:12:10.376
  • he's designed for you to be.
  • 00:12:10.409 --> 00:12:12.278
  • Yes, you're gonna be temptedto lose it and all that kinda
  • 00:12:12.311 --> 00:12:14.980
  • stuff, but remember by losingit it's gonna take you from that
  • 00:12:15.014 --> 00:12:19.919
  • designated place where Godwants you to be and by having
  • 00:12:19.952 --> 00:12:22.655
  • self-control it's gonna lead youto that place where God wants
  • 00:12:22.688 --> 00:12:26.659
  • you to be.
  • 00:12:26.692 --> 00:12:28.160
  • That's the secondthing I wanted you to get.
  • 00:12:28.194 --> 00:12:29.728
  • The third thing I wanted youto get is that when you cannot
  • 00:12:29.762 --> 00:12:31.697
  • control your emotions and youremotions are out of control,
  • 00:12:31.730 --> 00:12:34.099
  • then you will attempt totry to control other people.
  • 00:12:34.133 --> 00:12:37.903
  • And that's the one area thatGod does not want man to try to
  • 00:12:37.937 --> 00:12:40.673
  • control, and thatis other people.
  • 00:12:40.706 --> 00:12:43.843
  • Now, Jesus understands this.
  • 00:12:43.876 --> 00:12:46.478
  • Jesus knows about emotions,and he would never allow his
  • 00:12:46.512 --> 00:12:51.550
  • emotions to takecharge of his life.
  • 00:12:51.584 --> 00:12:55.054
  • Now, people will think, "Well,Jesus, you know, where in the
  • 00:12:55.087 --> 00:12:57.990
  • Bible does it talk aboutJesus having emotions?"
  • 00:12:58.023 --> 00:13:00.159
  • I mean, think about it.
  • 00:13:00.192 --> 00:13:01.794
  • Why would--why haven't we evertalked about in church, the fact
  • 00:13:01.827 --> 00:13:03.863
  • that Jesus has emotions?
  • 00:13:03.896 --> 00:13:06.398
  • Because we've been focusedon the spiritual, we've been
  • 00:13:06.432 --> 00:13:08.434
  • focused on healing, and that'sfine, but we also gotta be
  • 00:13:08.467 --> 00:13:11.170
  • focused on this area ofour lives where emotions are
  • 00:13:11.203 --> 00:13:13.639
  • concerned.
  • 00:13:13.672 --> 00:13:15.207
  • Look at Hebrews chapter 4, Ibelieve, in--and verse 15 and in
  • 00:13:15.241 --> 00:13:20.412
  • Hebrews 4:15 it talks about howJesus--he says, "For we have not
  • 00:13:20.446 --> 00:13:26.085
  • a high priest which cannot betouched with the feeling of our
  • 00:13:26.118 --> 00:13:29.955
  • infirmities; but was in allpoints tempted like as we are,
  • 00:13:29.989 --> 00:13:34.493
  • yet without sins."
  • 00:13:34.526 --> 00:13:36.228
  • I'm telling you Jesus wastempted in the area of feelings,
  • 00:13:36.262 --> 00:13:41.000
  • in the area of emotions, butbecause those emotions did not
  • 00:13:41.033 --> 00:13:45.137
  • master him, he didn't end upin sin because he mastered his
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:49.575
  • emotions.
  • 00:13:49.608 --> 00:13:51.043
  • And I'm gonna show you that allsin, all sin is conceived in a
  • 00:13:51.076 --> 00:13:57.049
  • man's emotions.
  • 00:13:57.082 --> 00:13:58.984
  • You conceive in a man--in youremotions and when you understand
  • 00:13:59.018 --> 00:14:02.688
  • how vital this area of our lifeis, we're gonna start taking a
  • 00:14:02.721 --> 00:14:05.824
  • little bit more--attempt to tryto, you know, understand how to
  • 00:14:05.858 --> 00:14:10.930
  • live successfully in thearea of emotional prosperity.
  • 00:14:10.963 --> 00:14:15.501
  • Well, look at Mark chapter 14.
  • 00:14:15.534 --> 00:14:17.569
  • Let's go to the Amplified andlet's identify some of these
  • 00:14:17.603 --> 00:14:19.605
  • emotions that Jesus knew about.
  • 00:14:19.638 --> 00:14:21.974
  • You know, it surprise a lot ofpeople when they realize that
  • 00:14:22.007 --> 00:14:24.576
  • Jesus knew about depression andthat Jesus knew about stress.
  • 00:14:24.610 --> 00:14:31.383
  • We take you here in Mark chapter14, and we see a Jesus who's
  • 00:14:31.417 --> 00:14:35.487
  • about to take on thesins of the whole world.
  • 00:14:35.521 --> 00:14:38.624
  • Mark chapter 14.
  • 00:14:38.657 --> 00:14:40.859
  • We see a Jesus who's about to,you know, take the very pain of
  • 00:14:40.893 --> 00:14:46.165
  • the entire world on hisshoulders and in verse
  • 00:14:46.198 --> 00:14:49.401
  • 33 and 34.
  • 00:14:49.435 --> 00:14:52.604
  • Mark 30--Mark 14:33 and 34 hesays, "And he took him--with him
  • 00:14:52.638 --> 00:14:58.944
  • Peter and James and John, and hebegan to be struck with terror,"
  • 00:14:58.978 --> 00:15:03.582
  • Jesus struck with terror?
  • 00:15:03.615 --> 00:15:06.185
  • "And amazement.
  • 00:15:06.218 --> 00:15:07.987
  • He was deeplytroubled and depressed."
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:10.656
  • This is talking about Jesus.
  • 00:15:10.689 --> 00:15:12.191
  • Terror, amazement,troubled, and depressed.
  • 00:15:12.224 --> 00:15:15.828
  • Look at verse 34, "And he saidto them, My soul is exceedingly
  • 00:15:15.861 --> 00:15:20.532
  • sad," Jesus?
  • 00:15:20.566 --> 00:15:22.735
  • "(Overwhelmedwith grief)," Jesus?
  • 00:15:22.768 --> 00:15:26.405
  • "So that it almost kills me!
  • 00:15:26.438 --> 00:15:28.107
  • Remain here and keepawake and be watching."
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:31.543
  • So, Jesus experienced thefeelings and emotions of terror,
  • 00:15:31.577 --> 00:15:37.449
  • of stress, of grief, of sadness,of depression, so he's not
  • 00:15:37.483 --> 00:15:45.424
  • like--he's not like on thisEarth in his body and he's not
  • 00:15:45.457 --> 00:15:48.227
  • experiencing these things.
  • 00:15:48.260 --> 00:15:50.763
  • And so, how did he handle it?
  • 00:15:50.796 --> 00:15:53.232
  • Did he just give authority tohis emotions and say, "Well, you
  • 00:15:53.265 --> 00:15:56.568
  • know, depression is here,so, you know, I'm gonna let
  • 00:15:56.602 --> 00:15:59.805
  • depression now take charge of mylife and take me away from the
  • 00:15:59.838 --> 00:16:04.910
  • very purpose of my life, andthat's dying on the cross.
  • 00:16:04.943 --> 00:16:08.414
  • I can handle all these things"?
  • 00:16:08.447 --> 00:16:10.182
  • Or, "Am I gonna take charge ofthese emotions and keep going
  • 00:16:10.215 --> 00:16:13.852
  • forward?"
  • 00:16:13.886 --> 00:16:15.521
  • Look at the next verse,because this is what he advised.
  • 00:16:15.554 --> 00:16:17.356
  • So, what did he do?
  • 00:16:17.389 --> 00:16:18.957
  • How did he handlethese negative emotions?
  • 00:16:18.991 --> 00:16:20.893
  • All of us will have to face atone time in our life, a lot of
  • 00:16:20.926 --> 00:16:24.530
  • times in our lives, negativeemotions, and how do you handle
  • 00:16:24.563 --> 00:16:27.299
  • them?
  • 00:16:27.332 --> 00:16:28.634
  • He said, "And going a littlefarther, he fell on the ground,
  • 00:16:28.667 --> 00:16:32.571
  • and he kept praying that if itwere possible that this [fatal]
  • 00:16:32.604 --> 00:16:37.376
  • hour might pass from him."
  • 00:16:37.409 --> 00:16:39.611
  • He gave two advice.
  • 00:16:39.645 --> 00:16:41.080
  • He gave us two bitof advice right here.
  • 00:16:41.113 --> 00:16:44.917
  • He said, "Number one, I want youto keep going forward and doing
  • 00:16:44.950 --> 00:16:49.488
  • what you know God has called youto do," so he says in the midst
  • 00:16:49.521 --> 00:16:54.159
  • of negative emotionsdon't change your course.
  • 00:16:54.193 --> 00:16:58.430
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,"Stay on course," so negative
  • 00:16:58.464 --> 00:17:02.134
  • emotions are designedto knock you off course.
  • 00:17:02.167 --> 00:17:05.938
  • "I want you to turnaround and go another place."
  • 00:17:05.971 --> 00:17:09.108
  • And any time some bad emotioncome, "Well, maybe God this--"
  • 00:17:09.141 --> 00:17:12.311
  • And you know how people do,especially Christians, "Maybe
  • 00:17:12.344 --> 00:17:13.912
  • God don't want me to do that."
  • 00:17:13.946 --> 00:17:15.347
  • Just 'cause you bump into sometrouble doesn't mean that God
  • 00:17:15.380 --> 00:17:18.684
  • wants you to change your course.
  • 00:17:18.717 --> 00:17:20.919
  • He just wants you to grow upand mature a little bit and say,
  • 00:17:20.953 --> 00:17:23.655
  • "No, I expect for you to come,because the Bible says, 'In this
  • 00:17:23.689 --> 00:17:26.692
  • world you'll have tribulation.'
  • 00:17:26.725 --> 00:17:28.560
  • I was expecting for you toshow up, but guess what?
  • 00:17:28.594 --> 00:17:31.230
  • I'm not changing my course.
  • 00:17:31.263 --> 00:17:32.764
  • This is what I'm supposed to do.
  • 00:17:32.798 --> 00:17:34.133
  • I'm gonna go forward a little.
  • 00:17:34.166 --> 00:17:36.168
  • Even if it's just a little,I'm gonna go forward a little."
  • 00:17:36.201 --> 00:17:39.371
  • And then the second thing headvises for us to do is he said
  • 00:17:39.404 --> 00:17:41.673
  • keep on praying.
  • 00:17:41.707 --> 00:17:43.342
  • Why does he say keep on praying?
  • 00:17:43.375 --> 00:17:45.144
  • Keep your focus onwhat God told you to do.
  • 00:17:45.177 --> 00:17:48.647
  • Don't lose your focus, man.
  • 00:17:48.680 --> 00:17:50.682
  • There is so much going aroundand depression can try to get
  • 00:17:50.716 --> 00:17:53.685
  • you to lose your focus andstress will try to get you to
  • 00:17:53.719 --> 00:17:55.721
  • lose your focus.
  • 00:17:55.754 --> 00:17:57.289
  • And what he says, "That's thetime I want you to choose the
  • 00:17:57.322 --> 00:18:00.259
  • right emotions, and I want youto take charge of your emotions
  • 00:18:00.292 --> 00:18:03.629
  • and say, 'Just 'cause it's badout there and in trouble doesn't
  • 00:18:03.662 --> 00:18:07.199
  • mean I have to have a badattitude, doesn't mean I have to
  • 00:18:07.232 --> 00:18:09.835
  • have bad emotions.
  • 00:18:09.868 --> 00:18:11.603
  • I'm gonna forward, I'm gonnastay focused, and y'all gonna
  • 00:18:11.637 --> 00:18:14.706
  • have to get out of the way in amoment because you will
  • 00:18:14.740 --> 00:18:17.442
  • not move me.'"
  • 00:18:17.476 --> 00:18:18.844
  • Praise God.Amen.
  • 00:18:18.877 --> 00:18:22.447
  • So, emotional stability,ladies and gentlemen, emotional
  • 00:18:22.481 --> 00:18:27.052
  • stability is absolutely thewill of God for our lives.
  • 00:18:27.085 --> 00:18:34.092
  • Look at Isaiah 26 and verse 3.
  • 00:18:34.126 --> 00:18:36.695
  • It's the will ofGod for your life.
  • 00:18:36.728 --> 00:18:38.297
  • It is not God's will for youremotions to take charge and
  • 00:18:38.330 --> 00:18:43.068

  • Peace is available nomatter what happened.
  • 00:20:17.329 --> 00:20:19.965
  • I know some of you you've lostloved ones and some of you have
  • 00:20:19.998 --> 00:20:23.802
  • more peace and joy in the midstof that whole situation than a
  • 00:20:23.835 --> 00:20:26.905
  • whole lot of other folks,because we think, we think that
  • 00:20:26.938 --> 00:20:30.676
  • negative situationsshould control our responses.
  • 00:20:30.709 --> 00:20:34.212
  • Most people believe that anegative circumstance must now
  • 00:20:34.246 --> 00:20:37.983
  • bring about thenegative emotions.
  • 00:20:38.016 --> 00:20:41.853
  • That we--most people think thata negative circumstance requires
  • 00:20:41.887 --> 00:20:45.590
  • negative emotions, thecorrespondings of
  • 00:20:45.624 --> 00:20:49.494
  • negative emotions.
  • 00:20:49.528 --> 00:20:51.096
  • That's not true, but we think,"Well, you know, the reason why
  • 00:20:51.129 --> 00:20:53.332
  • I'm feeling like this is 'causethat happened," and for the most
  • 00:20:53.365 --> 00:20:57.235
  • part that's what people think.
  • 00:20:57.269 --> 00:20:58.603
  • "This happened, so now that's--"
  • 00:20:58.637 --> 00:21:00.839
  • You're using the circumstancesto justify my feelings, and you
  • 00:21:00.872 --> 00:21:06.812
  • can't do that anymore, notas a Christian.
  • 00:21:06.845 --> 00:21:09.648
  • That may have been--that mayhave worked before
  • 00:21:09.681 --> 00:21:11.950
  • you got saved.
  • 00:21:11.983 --> 00:21:13.752
  • See, psychology just deals withthe mental and the emotional
  • 00:21:13.785 --> 00:21:16.655
  • capacity of a human being, butwhen you get born again you're
  • 00:21:16.688 --> 00:21:20.926
  • not just talking aboutcoping with negative emotions.
  • 00:21:20.959 --> 00:21:24.296
  • You're talking about controllingthose emotions, because we're
  • 00:21:24.329 --> 00:21:26.698
  • not just subject to ourmentality and our emotions.
  • 00:21:26.732 --> 00:21:29.835
  • We are now subject to the gracesthat come out of our spirit,
  • 00:21:29.868 --> 00:21:34.639
  • the answers and the power that'savailable to us from our
  • 00:21:34.673 --> 00:21:37.342
  • spirit man.
  • 00:21:37.376 --> 00:21:38.910
  • Psychologists won't tell youthat you got authority in your
  • 00:21:38.944 --> 00:21:42.114
  • spirit man, you gotpower in your spirit man.
  • 00:21:42.147 --> 00:21:45.050
  • They'll teach you how to copewith where you are, but I'm not
  • 00:21:45.083 --> 00:21:47.986
  • trying to teach you how to cope.
  • 00:21:48.019 --> 00:21:49.588
  • I'm trying to teach you thatfrom your spirit there is power
  • 00:21:49.621 --> 00:21:53.091
  • and anointing that's available,praise God, for you to control
  • 00:21:53.125 --> 00:21:56.528
  • those bad emotions.
  • 00:21:56.561 --> 00:21:58.797
  • My God, I'm preaching enough togive myself a offering.
  • 00:21:58.830 --> 00:22:05.637
  • Listen, man.
  • 00:22:05.670 --> 00:22:07.572
  • Most people believe thatnegative correspondence must
  • 00:22:07.606 --> 00:22:10.742
  • have--that, you know, a negativecircumstance must have a
  • 00:22:10.776 --> 00:22:12.611
  • negative emotion to go withit, and so what happens is, you
  • 00:22:12.644 --> 00:22:16.248
  • know, we think that, you know,emotions are just a response and
  • 00:22:16.281 --> 00:22:23.789
  • not a choice.
  • 00:22:23.822 --> 00:22:25.490
  • We think that emotions are justresponding to something, versus
  • 00:22:25.524 --> 00:22:29.828
  • it being a choice that you canmake, and so most people think,
  • 00:22:29.861 --> 00:22:33.632
  • "Well, I don't have anyauthority or control over
  • 00:22:33.665 --> 00:22:36.668
  • emotions," because theybelieve it's just the response.
  • 00:22:36.701 --> 00:22:41.173
  • And so, the thinking of theday is that emotions are just
  • 00:22:41.206 --> 00:22:46.745
  • something that just happens andthat there is nothing you can do
  • 00:22:46.778 --> 00:22:50.081
  • about it.
  • 00:22:50.115 --> 00:22:51.650
  • Some, "It just happens that way.This is a bad thing.
  • 00:22:51.683 --> 00:22:54.052
  • That's why I feel like that.
  • 00:22:54.085 --> 00:22:55.554
  • It just happens and there isnothing I can do about it."
  • 00:22:55.587 --> 00:22:57.589
  • I can't tell youhow wrong that is.
  • 00:22:57.622 --> 00:23:00.892
  • That is not right.
  • 00:23:00.926 --> 00:23:02.661
  • It is something--it is a big lieof the devil to keep his efforts
  • 00:23:02.694 --> 00:23:09.267
  • safe and clear for him tocontinue to wreak
  • 00:23:09.301 --> 00:23:12.704
  • havoc in your life.
  • 00:23:12.737 --> 00:23:15.140
  • It's an area ofthis area of emotions.
  • 00:23:15.173 --> 00:23:17.242
  • It's not a response.It is a choice.
  • 00:23:17.275 --> 00:23:19.478
  • It's not a response.It is a choice.
  • 00:23:19.511 --> 00:23:22.047
  • Your circumstances does not haveto dictate to you how you feel.
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:27.486
  • You have authority over you, howyou feel, so regardless of the
  • 00:23:27.519 --> 00:23:30.755
  • circumstances you can chooseto feel however you wanna feel.
  • 00:23:30.789 --> 00:23:39.731
  • Somebody dies, "I can choose tohave joy and peace in the middle
  • 00:23:41.933 --> 00:23:44.803
  • of that whole process."

  • Somebody diagnoses you with adisease, "I can choose to have
  • 00:23:47.806 --> 00:23:50.308
  • peace and joy and faith throughthat whole process," or you just
  • 00:23:50.342 --> 00:23:54.513
  • be like the world.
  • 00:23:54.546 --> 00:23:56.748
  • That's whatholiness is all about.
  • 00:23:56.781 --> 00:23:58.517
  • The world chooses to respond tothe circumstances, but we don't.
  • 00:23:58.550 --> 00:24:05.257
  • We don't respond to thecircumstances, hallelujah?
  • 00:24:05.290 --> 00:24:08.660
  • We walk by faith and not bysight, and we line our emotions
  • 00:24:08.693 --> 00:24:12.464
  • up with the Word of God.
  • 00:24:12.497 --> 00:24:13.899
  • We line our emotions up withwhat the Word has to say,

  • Bless his holy name.
  • 00:24:17.502 --> 00:24:20.972

  • I'm depressed, wanna kill myself'cause I ain't got no money."
  • 00:24:23.375 --> 00:24:25.744
  • We don't do that.
  • 00:24:25.777 --> 00:24:27.812
  • When we can't see it we say,"Thank God he'll supply all of
