  • Creflo: I promise you, when youfind procrastination, you're
  • 00:01:39.001 --> 00:01:42.838
  • gonna probably find a lot ofmissed opportunities and a lot
  • 00:01:42.871 --> 00:01:45.274
  • of failure there.
  • 00:01:45.307 --> 00:01:47.009
  • And regardless of who we are,it's something that probably
  • 00:01:47.042 --> 00:01:52.814
  • requires our examination to makesure that procrastination hasn't
  • 00:01:52.848 --> 00:01:58.020
  • become a subtle part of yourlife and how you do what you do.
  • 00:01:58.053 --> 00:02:02.724
  • Let's begin in verse 5, SaintJohn 5, and verses 5 through 9.
  • 00:02:02.758 --> 00:02:10.999
  • He says, "And a certain man wasthere, which had an infirmity
  • 00:02:11.033 --> 00:02:13.702
  • thirty and eight years."
  • 00:02:13.735 --> 00:02:15.637
  • How many of you know that's along time to have an infirmary
  • 00:02:15.671 --> 00:02:17.606
  • for 38 years?
  • 00:02:17.639 --> 00:02:19.508
  • And he said, "When Jesus saw himlie, and knew that he had been
  • 00:02:19.541 --> 00:02:23.845
  • now a long time in that case,he saith unto him, Wilt thou be
  • 00:02:23.879 --> 00:02:28.016
  • made whole?"
  • 00:02:28.050 --> 00:02:30.252
  • Simple question, "Do youwant to be made whole?"
  • 00:02:30.285 --> 00:02:33.989
  • And he said, verse 7, "Theimpotent man answered him, Sir,
  • 00:02:34.022 --> 00:02:37.526
  • I have no man, when the wateris troubled, to put me into
  • 00:02:37.559 --> 00:02:42.464
  • the pool."
  • 00:02:42.497 --> 00:02:44.366
  • Now, I said to you before thatsome people, they really give,
  • 00:02:44.399 --> 00:02:49.571
  • they turn excuses into reason.
  • 00:02:49.605 --> 00:02:52.841
  • It's really an excuse, but theytry to turn it into their reason
  • 00:02:52.874 --> 00:02:55.377
  • and really, excuses are givenfor the whole purpose of the
  • 00:02:55.410 --> 00:03:01.049
  • fact that you really don't wantto do it, or you don't
  • 00:03:01.083 --> 00:03:04.453
  • believe it.
  • 00:03:04.486 --> 00:03:06.655
  • He says, "I don't have anybodyto put me in the water, in the
  • 00:03:06.688 --> 00:03:09.124
  • pool but while I'm coming,somebody else steps in front of
  • 00:03:09.157 --> 00:03:13.061
  • me," just more excuses.
  • 00:03:13.095 --> 00:03:15.998
  • Look what he says in verse 8,and this is what I want to talk
  • 00:03:16.031 --> 00:03:19.234
  • about tonight.
  • 00:03:19.268 --> 00:03:20.569
  • Jesus said unto him, "Rise,take up your bed, and walk.
  • 00:03:20.602 --> 00:03:24.673
  • Rise, take up yourbed, and walk."
  • 00:03:24.706 --> 00:03:28.977
  • Now, if there's one thing that'sgonna be responsible for change
  • 00:03:29.011 --> 00:03:31.680
  • in our life, it's when we takeimmediate action to do the thing
  • 00:03:31.713 --> 00:03:37.419
  • that God's revealed to us to do,or to do the thing that we know
  • 00:03:37.452 --> 00:03:40.722
  • we need to do.
  • 00:03:40.756 --> 00:03:42.791
  • I don't know about you, butthere are things that God makes
  • 00:03:42.824 --> 00:03:45.527
  • known to you and you just kindof, I mean, weeks go by and you
  • 00:03:45.560 --> 00:03:50.832
  • don't do it, and I can't helpbut to wonder what if you would
  • 00:03:50.866 --> 00:03:54.202
  • have applied immediate action tothe thing that you knew to do?
  • 00:03:54.236 --> 00:03:58.540
  • And so, it's what I hear Jesussaying here, "Rise, take up your
  • 00:03:58.573 --> 00:04:04.646
  • bed, and walk," I hearhim saying, "Do it now."
  • 00:04:04.680 --> 00:04:07.182
  • I hear him saying,"Get up, take a step."
  • 00:04:07.215 --> 00:04:12.187
  • That's what he's tryingto get the guy to know.
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:14.189
  • You see, the excuses paralyzedhim and nothing was gonna change
  • 00:04:14.222 --> 00:04:18.126
  • until he did something now.
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:22.998
  • Do something youhaven't been able to do.
  • 00:04:23.031 --> 00:04:25.634
  • I believe that's when somethingsupernatural will begin
  • 00:04:25.667 --> 00:04:29.037
  • to happen.
  • 00:04:29.071 --> 00:04:30.839
  • You do what you cando in the natural.
  • 00:04:30.872 --> 00:04:33.075
  • You do what you can do in thenatural and then what happens is
  • 00:04:33.108 --> 00:04:36.511
  • God will add his super to yournatural, and you will experience
  • 00:04:36.545 --> 00:04:41.450
  • supernatural results.
  • 00:04:41.483 --> 00:04:43.652
  • This deal about just do nothingand, you know, I'm under grace
  • 00:04:43.685 --> 00:04:47.789
  • and something supposed tohappen, I truly believe, I just
  • 00:04:47.823 --> 00:04:50.592
  • really believe, and please don'tmisunderstand what I'm saying.
  • 00:04:50.625 --> 00:04:54.629
  • I'm talking about when the HolySpirit has put something in your
  • 00:04:54.663 --> 00:04:57.833
  • heart, he's trying to lead, andguide, and direct your life, and
  • 00:04:57.866 --> 00:05:02.671
  • we do nothing.
  • 00:05:02.704 --> 00:05:04.439
  • He said, "Get up, takeup your bed, walk."
  • 00:05:04.473 --> 00:05:09.311
  • Jesus was ready forhim to be healed.
  • 00:05:09.344 --> 00:05:13.181
  • He wasn't ready to step into it.
  • 00:05:13.215 --> 00:05:16.184
  • So, this is what I'm talkingabout, don't confuse striving
  • 00:05:16.218 --> 00:05:19.121
  • and performance basewith what I'm saying.
  • 00:05:19.154 --> 00:05:22.324
  • This is core operation withwhat has already been done.
  • 00:05:22.357 --> 00:05:25.560
  • You know, faith has to what?
  • 00:05:25.594 --> 00:05:28.130
  • Take possession of whatgrace has already made.
  • 00:05:28.163 --> 00:05:32.033
  • So sometimes, it's something sosimple as forgiving someone, or
  • 00:05:32.067 --> 00:05:36.037
  • something so simple as givinga gift to someone, or giving an
  • 00:05:36.071 --> 00:05:39.775
  • offering to God, or somethingso simple as, you know, praising
  • 00:05:39.808 --> 00:05:45.080
  • God when you don't feel like it.
  • 00:05:45.113 --> 00:05:47.549
  • Something so simple, as, youknow, just the small things that
  • 00:05:47.582 --> 00:05:52.187
  • the Spirit of God is leading youto do and the things you know
  • 00:05:52.220 --> 00:05:54.456
  • to do.
  • 00:05:54.489 --> 00:05:56.658
  • So, don't worry ifthe progress is slow.
  • 00:05:56.691 --> 00:05:58.527
  • Forget about what you haven'tbeen able to do up until now and
  • 00:05:58.560 --> 00:06:02.464
  • just be willing to cooperatewith the Holy Spirit as he leads
  • 00:06:02.497 --> 00:06:08.136
  • and guides your life, amen?
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:10.372
  • So, what's stopping you?
  • 00:06:10.405 --> 00:06:13.842
  • The question, "You know,can I really change?
  • 00:06:13.875 --> 00:06:17.913
  • Can I really change?"
  • 00:06:17.946 --> 00:06:19.681
  • I know that comes up a lot.
  • 00:06:19.714 --> 00:06:21.950
  • "Can I really do this?"
  • 00:06:21.983 --> 00:06:24.319
  • Now, you may not believe thingscould have ever changed in your
  • 00:06:24.352 --> 00:06:27.589
  • life, but he does.
  • 00:06:27.622 --> 00:06:30.025
  • He believes you can and that'swhy he's leading you, and
  • 00:06:30.058 --> 00:06:32.694
  • guiding you, and speakingto you, and inspiring you.
  • 00:06:32.727 --> 00:06:37.199
  • Some of you have had dreams, youknew it was God, and I just kind
  • 00:06:37.232 --> 00:06:43.738
  • of wonder what's on the otherside of me cooperating with what
  • 00:06:43.772 --> 00:06:48.343
  • the Spirit of God is clearlyplacing on my heart to do.
  • 00:06:48.376 --> 00:06:53.081
  • I mean, God sent us the HolySpirit so he can be a guide into
  • 00:06:53.114 --> 00:06:56.318
  • our lives.
  • 00:06:56.351 --> 00:06:57.752
  • So, you know, under the law,you know, you know that you're
  • 00:06:57.786 --> 00:07:03.091
  • supposed to do this with yourspouse, but under grace he
  • 00:07:03.124 --> 00:07:05.894
  • starts guiding youthrough those things.
  • 00:07:05.927 --> 00:07:08.897
  • He starts guiding you throughthose arguments, and guiding you
  • 00:07:08.930 --> 00:07:11.433
  • through those disagreements.
  • 00:07:11.466 --> 00:07:13.568
  • He tells you, he told meone time he says, "Don't say
  • 00:07:13.602 --> 00:07:15.370
  • nothing, just shut your mouth.
  • 00:07:15.403 --> 00:07:17.072
  • Don't say nothing.
  • 00:07:17.105 --> 00:07:18.540
  • Just hug her and be quiet."
  • 00:07:18.573 --> 00:07:20.041
  • You know it worked?
  • 00:07:20.075 --> 00:07:21.443
  • I said, "God, youknow your stuff."
  • 00:07:21.476 --> 00:07:23.278
  • He said, "I've been doingthis for thousands of years."
  • 00:07:23.311 --> 00:07:25.614
  • Okay, so when this particularman in John chapter 5 started
  • 00:07:25.647 --> 00:07:31.186
  • making excuses saying, "I haveno man," the first thing Jesus
  • 00:07:31.219 --> 00:07:35.156
  • said, "Rise, take up yourbed, your pallet, walk."
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:41.796
  • Jesus started givinghim directions.
  • 00:07:41.830 --> 00:07:45.367
  • I believe the Holy Spirit wantsto lead and guide you and give
  • 00:07:45.400 --> 00:07:50.171
  • you directions.
  • 00:07:50.205 --> 00:07:51.540
  • How many of you are open tothe Holy Spirit directing your
  • 00:07:51.573 --> 00:07:54.676
  • steps, amen?
  • 00:07:54.709 --> 00:07:56.978
  • And that was Jesus giving himdirections, and the way to break
  • 00:07:57.012 --> 00:08:00.949
  • out of failure in life and theinability to change in life is
  • 00:08:00.982 --> 00:08:07.022
  • to take, watch this,immediate action.
  • 00:08:07.055 --> 00:08:10.692
  • What is the HolySpirit saying to do?
  • 00:08:10.725 --> 00:08:12.127
  • Sometimes we try to sit and tryto, you know, go through here
  • 00:08:12.160 --> 00:08:16.331
  • and he knows better.
  • 00:08:16.364 --> 00:08:18.333
  • And the more you do it, theeasier it becomes to begin to
  • 00:08:18.366 --> 00:08:21.603
  • cooperate and allow him to lead,and to guide, and direct
  • 00:08:21.636 --> 00:08:25.707
  • your life.
  • 00:08:25.740 --> 00:08:27.108
  • So, a sure way to failure and aninability to change, a sure way
  • 00:08:27.142 --> 00:08:31.446
  • to failure and an inabilityto change is something
  • 00:08:31.479 --> 00:08:34.015
  • called procrastination.
  • 00:08:34.049 --> 00:08:36.685
  • If you want to--if youabsolutely want to be a failure,
  • 00:08:36.718 --> 00:08:39.554
  • procrastinationwill get you there.
  • 00:08:39.588 --> 00:08:42.357
  • If you absolutely are not goingto change and just kind of stay
  • 00:08:42.390 --> 00:08:46.494
  • the same, procrastinationwill get you there.
  • 00:08:46.528 --> 00:08:50.165
  • Let me give you thedefinition of procrastination.
  • 00:08:50.198 --> 00:08:53.101
  • It means putting off immediateaction or to put off doing
  • 00:08:53.134 --> 00:08:59.307
  • something that you cando today for tomorrow.
  • 00:08:59.341 --> 00:09:04.546
  • It's, you know, especially outof habitual carelessness, or
  • 00:09:04.579 --> 00:09:13.421
  • dare I say, laziness.
  • 00:09:13.455 --> 00:09:15.957
  • And there is an element oflaziness that's involved in
  • 00:09:15.991 --> 00:09:19.928
  • procrastination, putting offimmediate action, the thing I
  • 00:09:19.961 --> 00:09:23.732
  • can do now, the thing I cando today, I do it tomorrow.
  • 00:09:23.765 --> 00:09:26.701
  • The Holy Spirit shows up inyour prayer time and he says,
  • 00:09:26.735 --> 00:09:28.737
  • "Listen, I'd like to meet youeveryday about six o'clock.
  • 00:09:28.770 --> 00:09:34.476
  • I just want to havesome fellowship time."
  • 00:09:34.509 --> 00:09:36.611
  • Not as a rule that's requiredfor me to bless you, but he's in
  • 00:09:36.645 --> 00:09:40.582
  • it for the relationship.
  • 00:09:40.615 --> 00:09:42.651
  • He's relational.
  • 00:09:42.684 --> 00:09:44.252
  • I want to say some thingsto you that will bless you.
  • 00:09:44.285 --> 00:09:47.422
  • You'll say some thingsto me that will bless me.
  • 00:09:47.455 --> 00:09:50.925
  • And we say, "Okay,Lord, I'll do it."
  • 00:09:50.959 --> 00:09:52.694
  • And then a week goes by, and twoweeks go by, and before you know
  • 00:09:52.727 --> 00:09:55.096
  • it, it's not being done.
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:57.499
  • So, when a situation happens inyour life or you come to this
  • 00:09:57.532 --> 00:10:01.269
  • area of your life, andyou're like what happened?
  • 00:10:01.302 --> 00:10:04.606
  • And I'm thinking I can't helpbut think, man, man, on the
  • 00:10:04.639 --> 00:10:08.677
  • other side of what he told me todo, and that's the thing, what
  • 00:10:08.710 --> 00:10:14.749
  • was it on the other side that myprocrastination, along with my
  • 00:10:14.783 --> 00:10:21.523
  • excuses, paralyzed me?
  • 00:10:21.556 --> 00:10:25.260
  • And so, there are really threereasons for procrastination.
  • 00:10:25.293 --> 00:10:28.763
  • Let's just jump inthis, you ready?
  • 00:10:28.797 --> 00:10:30.465
  • Three reasons forprocrastination, number one,
  • 00:10:30.498 --> 00:10:32.667
  • indecisiveness, indecisiveness.
  • 00:10:32.701 --> 00:10:35.737
  • We can't make up ourminds about what to do.
  • 00:10:35.770 --> 00:10:40.041
  • And indecision is something,that as a Christian you don't
  • 00:10:40.075 --> 00:10:43.344
  • want to carry and sometimes yourindecision can affect almost
  • 00:10:43.378 --> 00:10:47.449
  • anything you want to do.
  • 00:10:47.482 --> 00:10:49.284
  • You make up your mind to dosomething with your spouse, but
  • 00:10:49.317 --> 00:10:51.086
  • you're so indecisive aboutthings, then y'all never end up
  • 00:10:51.119 --> 00:10:54.355
  • doing anything.
  • 00:10:54.389 --> 00:10:56.524
  • And so, you know,procrastination would
  • 00:10:56.558 --> 00:11:00.295
  • become the reason.
  • 00:11:00.328 --> 00:11:02.097
  • I mean, "I don't know what todo, so I procrastinate the point
  • 00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.666
  • and it doesn't happen.
  • 00:11:04.699 --> 00:11:06.201
  • So, indecision, indecisivenessis a reason for procrastination.
  • 00:11:06.234 --> 00:11:12.240
  • Number two, perfectionism,perfectionism.
  • 00:11:12.273 --> 00:11:19.047
  • Often we won't do anything untilwe think we can do everything.
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:24.586
  • And so, if I can't do it withperfection, then I just, I just
  • 00:11:24.619 --> 00:11:28.289
  • won't bother with it.
  • 00:11:28.323 --> 00:11:31.025
  • And procrastinationis a result of that.
  • 00:11:31.059 --> 00:11:32.761
  • Look at Ecclesiastes chapter 11,verse 4 in the Amplified Bible,
  • 00:11:32.794 --> 00:11:37.365
  • Ecclesiastes chapter 11, verse4 in the Amplified Bible.
  • 00:11:37.398 --> 00:11:43.004
  • You know, the perfectionistsays, "If I can't do it the way
  • 00:11:43.037 --> 00:11:47.342
  • I want to do it, thenI just won't do it."
  • 00:11:47.375 --> 00:11:50.779
  • And it's not that he shouldn'tdo that thing, it's just
  • 00:11:50.812 --> 00:11:54.382
  • procrastination is a resultof his perfectionism.
  • 00:11:54.415 --> 00:11:58.820
  • Look what he says here inEcclesiastes 11 and verse 4, 11,
  • 00:11:58.853 --> 00:12:06.227
  • verse 4.
  • 00:12:06.261 --> 00:12:08.029
  • He says, "He who observes thewind, and he waits for all
  • 00:12:08.062 --> 00:12:11.733
  • conditions to be favorable."
  • 00:12:11.766 --> 00:12:15.303
  • You see that?
  • 00:12:15.336 --> 00:12:17.505
  • He says he will not sow.
  • 00:12:17.539 --> 00:12:20.275
  • "And he who regards theclouds, he will not reap."
  • 00:12:20.308 --> 00:12:24.712
  • So, now he's procrastinatingin his sowing, which is now
  • 00:12:24.746 --> 00:12:27.682
  • affecting his harvest, why?
  • 00:12:27.715 --> 00:12:30.351
  • Because he says, "I'm not gonnagive until all the conditions
  • 00:12:30.385 --> 00:12:32.921
  • are favorable."
  • 00:12:32.954 --> 00:12:34.856
  • And I don't give when allthe conditions are favorable.
  • 00:12:34.889 --> 00:12:38.760
  • The time I'm really motivatedto give when nothing's
  • 00:12:38.793 --> 00:12:41.796
  • favorable, okay?
  • 00:12:41.830 --> 00:12:44.666
  • And then he says, then he won'treap, verse 4, stay there,
  • 00:12:44.699 --> 00:12:49.304
  • that's the only one.
  • 00:12:49.337 --> 00:12:50.738
  • He won't reap becausehe's regarding the clouds.
  • 00:12:50.772 --> 00:12:54.542
  • He's so busy looking at it, youknow, you know what's going on
  • 00:12:54.576 --> 00:12:57.145
  • with the clouds.
  • 00:12:57.178 --> 00:12:59.047
  • Notice, waiting on everythingto be perfect, waiting on
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:03.218
  • everything to be favorable.
  • 00:13:03.251 --> 00:13:06.187
  • Perfectionism causes you tooperate in procrastination.
  • 00:13:06.221 --> 00:13:12.794
  • So, you have indecisiveness,you have perfectionism, and then
  • 00:13:12.827 --> 00:13:17.866
  • three, as I said before, thisis tied into procrastination,
  • 00:13:17.899 --> 00:13:22.136
  • laziness, laziness.
  • 00:13:22.170 --> 00:13:26.040
  • I don't want to put forththe effort to change.
  • 00:13:26.074 --> 00:13:28.977
  • I know I need to change, Ijust don't want to do it.
  • 00:13:29.010 --> 00:13:32.046
  • I don't want to put forththe effort to change.
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:35.250
  • So, people in their hearts knowwhat they should do, they have
  • 00:13:35.283 --> 00:13:39.420
  • good intentions of doing itbut they keep putting it off.
  • 00:13:39.454 --> 00:13:45.560
  • And how many of you know that,you know, we don't do things by
  • 00:13:45.593 --> 00:13:49.230
  • good intentions.
  • 00:13:49.264 --> 00:13:50.632
  • I mean, "One day, I'mgonna get in shape."
  • 00:13:50.665 --> 00:13:53.101
  • You know, you know you need to.
  • 00:13:53.134 --> 00:13:55.069
  • "You know, one day I'm gonnastop eating like this."
  • 00:13:55.103 --> 00:13:58.039
  • You know you need to.
  • 00:13:58.072 --> 00:14:00.008
  • You know, "One day, I'm gonnado this," and it just it's--you
  • 00:14:00.041 --> 00:14:05.613
  • don't want to call it laziness,and I want to be bold enough to
  • 00:14:05.647 --> 00:14:09.484
  • say you're lazy because youknow to do some things, you just
  • 00:14:09.517 --> 00:14:13.221
  • won't do it.
  • 00:14:13.254 --> 00:14:14.923
  • You just won't do it, and thenyou make a excuse that becomes
  • 00:14:14.956 --> 00:14:18.559
  • your reason for not doing it.
  • 00:14:18.593 --> 00:14:21.195
  • "Well, the doctor saidmy sugar level high."
  • 00:14:21.229 --> 00:14:23.164
  • It should be, youeat a lot of sugar.
  • 00:14:23.197 --> 00:14:26.501
  • "Well, that ain'tthe only cause."
  • 00:14:26.534 --> 00:14:27.835
  • Whatever, keep finding moreexcuses, instead of trying to
  • 00:14:27.869 --> 00:14:30.171
  • find a way.
  • 00:14:30.204 --> 00:14:31.706
  • So, you can make an excuse oryou can find a way to do what
  • 00:14:31.739 --> 00:14:34.943
  • needs to be done.
  • 00:14:34.976 --> 00:14:36.311
  • It's insanity to think you cankeep doing the same thing and
  • 00:14:36.344 --> 00:14:39.314
  • expect different results.
  • 00:14:39.347 --> 00:14:40.915
  • You have no right toexpect different results.
  • 00:14:40.949 --> 00:14:42.483
  • You're doing the same thing.
  • 00:14:42.517 --> 00:14:44.085
  • Listen to me carefully, I havegood intentions and someday I
  • 00:14:44.118 --> 00:14:51.225
  • plan as, I plan on being, youknow, cooperate, cooperative
  • 00:14:51.259 --> 00:14:56.331
  • with the Holy Spirit and workingwith the Holy Spirit, but nah,
  • 00:14:56.364 --> 00:15:01.936
  • nah, that's the attitudeof a lot of people.
  • 00:15:01.970 --> 00:15:06.007
  • Good Intentions do not equalyour cooperation with the
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:09.210
  • Holy Spirit.
  • 00:15:09.243 --> 00:15:10.979
  • It will never equal that.
  • 00:15:11.012 --> 00:15:13.181
  • So, you have to understand thatno one is rewarded for
  • 00:15:13.214 --> 00:15:16.250
  • good intentions.
  • 00:15:16.284 --> 00:15:18.686
  • You don't get rewardsfor good intentions.
  • 00:15:18.720 --> 00:15:21.456
  • I just say to people changeisn't change until
  • 00:15:21.489 --> 00:15:23.424
  • you've changed.
  • 00:15:23.458 --> 00:15:24.826
  • Change isn't change because youhad a conversation about change.
  • 00:15:24.859 --> 00:15:26.995
  • Change isn't change becauseyou prayed about change.
  • 00:15:27.028 --> 00:15:30.565
  • Change isn't change 'cause youlooked the definition up and you
  • 00:15:30.598 --> 00:15:32.734
  • wrote a wholepaper about change.
  • 00:15:32.767 --> 00:15:35.169
  • It's not changeuntil it's changed.
  • 00:15:35.203 --> 00:15:38.339
  • And so likewise, whereintentions are concerned,
  • 00:15:38.373 --> 00:15:40.875
  • there's no profitin good intentions.
  • 00:15:40.908 --> 00:15:45.246
  • What does the Bible say aboutthe way the pathway to hell is
  • 00:15:45.279 --> 00:15:49.217
  • paved with good intentions.
  • 00:15:49.250 --> 00:15:51.786
  • It's gonna be filled with alot of people that had
  • 00:15:51.819 --> 00:15:53.621
  • good intentions.
  • 00:15:53.654 --> 00:15:55.823
  • Hospitals are filled with alot of people that have
  • 00:15:55.857 --> 00:15:57.992
  • good intentions.
  • 00:15:58.026 --> 00:15:59.594
  • Graveyards are filled withpeople that had good intentions.
  • 00:15:59.627 --> 00:16:03.264
  • You follow what I'm saying?
  • 00:16:03.297 --> 00:16:04.999
  • People that are--a lot of peopleare in jail when they
  • 00:16:05.033 --> 00:16:07.235
  • had good intentions.
  • 00:16:07.268 --> 00:16:09.670
  • I taught along these lines yearsago and a prisoner came up to me
  • 00:16:09.704 --> 00:16:11.806
  • says, "Doc, if I'd have heardthis before, I wouldn't
  • 00:16:11.839 --> 00:16:15.209
  • be here."
  • 00:16:15.243 --> 00:16:17.211
  • I had intentions, doesn't work.
  • 00:16:17.245 --> 00:16:19.981
  • I'm trying to challenge you tocome away from excuse making,
  • 00:16:20.014 --> 00:16:23.684
  • come away fromprocrastination, be decisive.
  • 00:16:23.718 --> 00:16:27.688
  • Don't wait till all theconditions are perfect.
  • 00:16:27.722 --> 00:16:30.291
  • Refuse to be lazy, and watch Godcome in and begin to take you to
  • 00:16:30.324 --> 00:16:35.063
  • places that you areprobably now dreaming about.
  • 00:16:35.096 --> 00:16:38.900
  • And so, everything starts withone simple act, one simple
  • 00:16:38.933 --> 00:16:43.037
  • decision that says that if Godsent the Holy Spirit to lead and
  • 00:16:43.071 --> 00:16:47.408
  • guide me, I'm gonnacooperate with him.
  • 00:16:47.442 --> 00:16:50.611
  • I'm gonna cooperate with him.
  • 00:16:50.645 --> 00:16:52.013
  • If he said something to me,you better believe that's gold.
  • 00:16:52.046 --> 00:16:54.649
  • Listen, there's always the otherside of what he said to you.
  • 00:16:54.682 --> 00:16:59.120
  • It's real breakthrough, it'sreal breakthrough when you
  • 00:16:59.153 --> 00:17:02.156
  • hear God.
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:03.825
  • The breakthrough, breakthroughdoesn't come necessarily from
  • 00:17:03.858 --> 00:17:07.995
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:17:08.029 --> 00:17:09.864
  • It comes from a Word from God.
  • 00:17:09.897 --> 00:17:12.867
  • And when the Holy Spirit'staking the time to direct you,
  • 00:17:12.900 --> 00:17:15.837
  • then the Holy Spirit's takingthe time to speak to you, and
  • 00:17:15.870 --> 00:17:18.139
  • even correct you, or evenrebuke you, that's amazing.
  • 00:17:18.172 --> 00:17:22.777
  • That's a huge, huge part ofsomething that's getting ready
  • 00:17:22.810 --> 00:17:26.080
  • to be--to breakloose in your life.
  • 00:17:26.114 --> 00:17:29.684
  • And I just believe that in thename of Jesus, that there's
  • 00:17:29.717 --> 00:17:32.720
  • something powerful gonna happenbecause we're gonna be people
  • 00:17:32.753 --> 00:17:35.790
  • that say, "You knowwhat, Holy Spirit?
  • 00:17:35.823 --> 00:17:37.525
  • Wherever you leadme, I'll follow."
  • 00:17:37.558 --> 00:17:40.428
  • Used to have an old Methodistsong we used to sing in church.
  • 00:17:40.461 --> 00:17:42.697
  • ♪ Where he leads me,I will follow ♪
  • 00:17:42.730 --> 00:17:44.899
  • ♪ I'll be somewhere ♪
  • 00:17:44.932 --> 00:17:46.300
  • I think it was,

  • Creflo: You know, I don'twant to be in hell trying to
  • 00:17:51.939 --> 00:17:54.208
  • listen for his name, okay?
  • 00:17:54.242 --> 00:17:57.278
  • I mean, you know, I can hearsomebody saying, "I knew I was
  • 00:17:57.311 --> 00:18:00.581
  • supposed to getmy life together.
  • 00:18:00.615 --> 00:18:01.983
  • I intended on getting saved.
  • 00:18:02.016 --> 00:18:04.352
  • I intended on coming to church."
  • 00:18:04.385 --> 00:18:07.989
  • And then when the trouble hits,it's confusion like, "Oh, my
  • 00:18:08.022 --> 00:18:11.626
  • God, what happened?"
  • 00:18:11.659 --> 00:18:13.227
  • God saw that thing way beforeit got to you, had a way out,
  • 00:18:13.261 --> 00:18:18.332
  • had a path.
  • 00:18:18.366 --> 00:18:19.800
  • Procrastination kept you inthe place for the failure when
  • 00:18:19.834 --> 00:18:25.773
  • cooperation with God was gonnamove you out of the path of it.
  • 00:18:25.806 --> 00:18:30.178
  • You gotta decide, you gotta makeyour mind up to do the things
  • 00:18:30.211 --> 00:18:33.447
  • you need to do.
  • 00:18:33.481 --> 00:18:34.849
  • So remember, when they came toJesus and said that they were
  • 00:18:34.882 --> 00:18:38.019
  • out of wine in that wedding thatJesus went to, what did he tell
  • 00:18:38.052 --> 00:18:42.590
  • them to do?
  • 00:18:42.623 --> 00:18:43.991
  • Listen, listen, listen, listen,"We're out of wine, what do
  • 00:18:44.025 --> 00:18:46.194
  • we do?"
  • 00:18:46.227 --> 00:18:47.962
  • He said, "Fill thewater pots with water."
  • 00:18:47.995 --> 00:18:51.199
  • But that didn't make sense.
  • 00:18:51.232 --> 00:18:53.668
  • I said we're out of wine.
  • 00:18:53.701 --> 00:18:55.169
  • You want to put water inthe bottles, in the pots.
  • 00:18:55.203 --> 00:18:58.906
  • We're out of wine, and you sayput water, but that didn't make
  • 00:18:58.940 --> 00:19:02.410
  • sense to them.
  • 00:19:02.443 --> 00:19:03.878
  • They needed wine, not water.
  • 00:19:03.911 --> 00:19:05.213
  • They needed a miracle but itstarted with the, with them
  • 00:19:05.246 --> 00:19:08.416
  • taking immediate action, anddoing whatever Jesus told them
  • 00:19:08.449 --> 00:19:13.554
  • to do.
  • 00:19:13.588 --> 00:19:15.590
  • I believe the HolySpirit lives in you.
  • 00:19:15.623 --> 00:19:18.025
  • He lives in us, and he's njust been sent there so we can
  • 00:19:18.059 --> 00:19:21.195
  • jerk or jiggle.
  • 00:19:21.229 --> 00:19:22.563
  • He wants to guide us.
  • 00:19:22.597 --> 00:19:24.332
  • He wants to speak to us.
  • 00:19:24.365 --> 00:19:26.067
  • He wants to giveus instructions.
  • 00:19:26.100 --> 00:19:27.935
  • He wants to give us a warningabout things that have not yet
  • 00:19:27.969 --> 00:19:31.939
  • come to your place and if it'sany place where we talk about in
  • 00:19:31.973 --> 00:19:36.143
  • needing immediate action,it's when he speaks.
  • 00:19:36.177 --> 00:19:40.815
  • When he speaks, you should nothave this casual attitude of
  • 00:19:40.848 --> 00:19:43.251
  • just kind of puttingit on the side.
  • 00:19:43.284 --> 00:19:45.620
  • When he speaks, it needs tobe priority, put it on a sticky,
  • 00:19:45.653 --> 00:19:48.723
  • put it on your refrigerator.
  • 00:19:48.756 --> 00:19:50.558
  • That's a major piece in whateverGod's trying to do in your life.
  • 00:19:50.591 --> 00:19:53.060
  • That's a major piecein your safety.
  • 00:19:53.094 --> 00:19:57.098
  • I don't believe that somebodyjust goes out and just dies.
  • 00:19:57.131 --> 00:20:01.202
  • I believe if you back it up,rewind, somewhere between that
  • 00:20:01.235 --> 00:20:05.706
  • situation, that terriblesituation and when God said
  • 00:20:05.740 --> 00:20:10.945
  • something could have stoppedthat particular situation.
  • 00:20:10.978 --> 00:20:15.049
  • I remember when it was almost19 years ago, when I went to
  • 00:20:15.082 --> 00:20:19.020
  • Sacramento, California, therewas a thing about preachers
  • 00:20:19.053 --> 00:20:22.356
  • being people of their words.
  • 00:20:22.390 --> 00:20:24.525
  • And I was teaching on integrity,and I wrote a book on integrity.
  • 00:20:24.558 --> 00:20:28.195
  • And I was on my way toSacramento, and I heard the
  • 00:20:28.229 --> 00:20:33.968
  • Spirit of God say, "Don't go."
  • 00:20:34.001 --> 00:20:36.404
  • And I said to him, "Lord, butmy integrity is on the line."
  • 00:20:36.437 --> 00:20:42.109
  • Think about it, I thoughtthis is so stupid.
  • 00:20:42.143 --> 00:20:45.179
  • The Prince of integrityjust told me don't go.
  • 00:20:45.212 --> 00:20:51.686
  • So I said, you know, Idon't--here I am talking to him.
  • 00:20:51.719 --> 00:20:54.355
  • He tells me one thing and I'mlike, "No, I'm watching out
  • 00:20:54.388 --> 00:20:56.524
  • for you.
  • 00:20:56.557 --> 00:20:57.958
  • I want to be aman of integrity."
  • 00:20:57.992 --> 00:20:59.827
  • But I wouldn't, I wouldn't letlike Jeremy I think was in high
  • 00:20:59.860 --> 00:21:05.232
  • school, he wanted to go.
  • 00:21:05.266 --> 00:21:07.368
  • And I'm like, you can't go.
  • 00:21:07.401 --> 00:21:09.270
  • I said, your uncle Ken's gonnago with me because, you know,
  • 00:21:09.303 --> 00:21:12.206
  • you know, he's an ex footballplayer, his body can take it.
  • 00:21:12.239 --> 00:21:15.409
  • And I'm like, I can't believethat came out of my mouth.
  • 00:21:15.443 --> 00:21:18.346
  • I'm like trying,what did I just say?
  • 00:21:18.379 --> 00:21:20.448
  • So, we get up, we get down, wefly there, we get there and get
  • 00:21:20.481 --> 00:21:24.985
  • up in the morning.
  • 00:21:25.019 --> 00:21:26.520
  • We say our confessions, wepray, spend time with the Lord.
  • 00:21:26.554 --> 00:21:29.256
  • We clothe ourselves likewe've done for years.
  • 00:21:29.290 --> 00:21:33.427
  • And just really strangethings are happening.
  • 00:21:33.461 --> 00:21:36.097
  • He had a new Suburban, thepreacher I was visiting, and I
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:40.868
  • normally don't sit in the frontseat because I don't want to put
  • 00:21:40.901 --> 00:21:43.304
  • my seatbelt on because Idon't want to wrinkle my coat.
  • 00:21:43.337 --> 00:21:47.942
  • So, he talked me intogetting me in the front seat.
  • 00:21:47.975 --> 00:21:50.745
  • So, I got in the front seat,so I put the seatbelt on.
  • 00:21:50.778 --> 00:21:53.748
  • And we're riding and, you know,all of a sudden this car, runs
  • 00:21:53.781 --> 00:21:59.353
  • the red light and the Suburbangoes airborne in front of these
  • 00:21:59.387 --> 00:22:04.258
  • people, and itturns over and over.
  • 00:22:04.291 --> 00:22:07.895
  • It literally knockedthe wheels off the tire.
  • 00:22:07.928 --> 00:22:11.465
  • Minister Ken went out the sidebackdoor, almost probably 60
  • 00:22:11.499 --> 00:22:16.036
  • yards or something, landed inthe windshield of this car at
  • 00:22:16.070 --> 00:22:19.974
  • the other red light.
  • 00:22:20.007 --> 00:22:22.042
  • So, you imagine this ladysitting there and a flying man
  • 00:22:22.076 --> 00:22:23.944
  • comes through the car.
  • 00:22:23.978 --> 00:22:26.414
  • And we turn over and over andover again, and all that
  • 00:22:26.447 --> 00:22:29.483
  • stuff happens.
  • 00:22:29.517 --> 00:22:32.153
  • And I asked myself, of course,the--I believe the blood of
  • 00:22:32.186 --> 00:22:36.590
  • Jesus was over our lives becausewe took authority before
  • 00:22:36.624 --> 00:22:39.627
  • we left.
  • 00:22:39.660 --> 00:22:41.796
  • But did that have to happen?
  • 00:22:41.829 --> 00:22:44.131
  • See, he was wayahead of the game.
  • 00:22:44.165 --> 00:22:47.468
  • And if I had would've died,it wouldn't have been,
  • 00:22:47.501 --> 00:22:49.370
  • "What happened?
  • 00:22:49.403 --> 00:22:50.771
  • Oh, God, what happened?
  • 00:22:50.805 --> 00:22:52.239
  • Why did God let this happen?"
  • 00:22:52.273 --> 00:22:53.641
  • No, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:22:53.674 --> 00:22:55.042
  • God said don't go.
  • 00:22:55.075 --> 00:22:57.044
  • There was nocooperation on my part.
  • 00:22:57.077 --> 00:22:59.547
  • I'm trying to have integrity.
  • 00:22:59.580 --> 00:23:02.082
  • Now, that don't happen no more.
  • 00:23:02.116 --> 00:23:06.454
  • I was in a situation, and Iwas on my way to Lagos and he
  • 00:23:06.487 --> 00:23:09.256
  • said, "Don't go."
  • 00:23:09.290 --> 00:23:10.658
  • I called him I said, "I'll paywhatever you paid on marketing,
  • 00:23:10.691 --> 00:23:13.561
  • but I can't come, Godtold me not to go."
  • 00:23:13.594 --> 00:23:16.964
  • And there was even strangethings there that happened.
  • 00:23:16.997 --> 00:23:19.834
  • But he's--he knows what yourfuture has and if he takes the
  • 00:23:19.867 --> 00:23:25.539
  • time to tell you, and to warnyou, and to talk to you, but he
  • 00:23:25.573 --> 00:23:29.043
  • also can talk to youabout other things.
  • 00:23:29.076 --> 00:23:30.911
  • "Buy that piece ofland right there."
  • 00:23:30.945 --> 00:23:33.781
  • "But Lord, that ain't nothing."
  • 00:23:33.814 --> 00:23:35.282
  • "Buy it."
  • 00:23:35.316 --> 00:23:36.684
  • And you send a letter.
  • 00:23:36.717 --> 00:23:38.252
  • Hmm, and thensomebody comes and says,
  • 00:23:38.285 --> 00:23:39.653
  • "I'll give you ten timeswhat that's worth.
  • 00:23:39.687 --> 00:23:42.223
  • I got to have this thingin order to get
  • 00:23:42.256 --> 00:23:43.891
  • my project through."
  • 00:23:43.924 --> 00:23:45.292
  • You didn't know it.
  • 00:23:45.326 --> 00:23:46.694
  • What would happen in our life,where success is concerned, if
  • 00:23:46.727 --> 00:23:49.363
  • we would start providingimmediate action to when the
  • 00:23:49.396 --> 00:23:52.800
  • Holy Spirit starts speaking tous and telling us what to do?
  • 00:23:52.833 --> 00:23:55.870
  • A lot of stuff wouldbegin to happen.
  • 00:23:55.903 --> 00:23:58.172
  • Procrastination is anenemy to that success.

  • and preservation.
  • 00:24:09.149 --> 00:24:11.752
  • And I just thank God that hewas merciful and kind enough I
  • 00:24:11.785 --> 00:24:16.857
  • didn't get what I deserved.
  • 00:24:16.891 --> 00:24:18.926
