  • Creflo: Here's what you cannow do now that you have the
  • 00:01:53.193 --> 00:01:55.995
  • peace of Jesus: "Let not yourheart be troubled,
  • 00:01:56.029 --> 00:02:02.001
  • neither let it be afraid."
  • 00:02:02.035 --> 00:02:04.537
  • See, when you go to the Word toget some peace, let not--notice
  • 00:02:04.571 --> 00:02:08.174
  • what he's saying.
  • 00:02:08.208 --> 00:02:09.509
  • You now are responsible formaking sure that your emotions
  • 00:02:09.542 --> 00:02:13.713
  • don't drive all thatjunk in your heart.
  • 00:02:13.746 --> 00:02:16.049
  • Don't let yourheart be troubled.
  • 00:02:16.082 --> 00:02:19.686
  • You know what that means?
  • 00:02:19.719 --> 00:02:21.254
  • If you are troubled inyour heart, you let it.
  • 00:02:21.287 --> 00:02:25.258
  • Don't let it be troubled.
  • 00:02:25.291 --> 00:02:28.228
  • "Oh, but, Brother Dollar,you don't know
  • 00:02:28.261 --> 00:02:29.562
  • what I'm going through."
  • 00:02:29.596 --> 00:02:30.897
  • Do not let yourheart be troubled.
  • 00:02:30.930 --> 00:02:32.966
  • Now here's the next thing.
  • 00:02:32.999 --> 00:02:34.300
  • "Yeah, but how are yousupposed to do that?"
  • 00:02:34.334 --> 00:02:36.102
  • I just told you how to do that.
  • 00:02:36.135 --> 00:02:37.971
  • You're gonna have toreally now be a Christian.
  • 00:02:38.004 --> 00:02:42.075
  • Instead of acting like one andwearing a t-shirt, now you're
  • 00:02:42.108 --> 00:02:44.477
  • gonna have to really be one.
  • 00:02:44.510 --> 00:02:50.583
  • Let not your heart be troubled.
  • 00:02:50.617 --> 00:02:52.986
  • Now the responsibilityis on you.
  • 00:02:53.019 --> 00:02:55.622
  • I am not gonna--and that mightbe a good way to start off, by
  • 00:02:55.655 --> 00:02:58.391
  • making that confession.
  • 00:02:58.424 --> 00:02:59.726
  • "I will not allow myheart to be troubled.
  • 00:02:59.759 --> 00:03:01.794
  • I will not--" and somebody says,"Well, how do you do that?"
  • 00:03:01.828 --> 00:03:04.530
  • Well, the Bible says in Proverbs4--he
  • 00:03:04.564 --> 00:03:07.233
  • said give attention to the Word.
  • 00:03:07.267 --> 00:03:11.437
  • Go to Proverbs 4,around verse 20.
  • 00:03:11.471 --> 00:03:14.874
  • Let's start there.
  • 00:03:14.907 --> 00:03:16.209
  • Give attention to the Word, andhe says you can guard your heart
  • 00:03:16.242 --> 00:03:20.013
  • by guarding your eye gate, yourear gate, and your mouth gate.
  • 00:03:20.046 --> 00:03:23.616
  • Look what it says.
  • 00:03:23.650 --> 00:03:25.084
  • "My son, attend tomy--" there it is.
  • 00:03:25.118 --> 00:03:26.686
  • "Give attention to my," what?
  • 00:03:26.719 --> 00:03:28.488
  • He didn't say giveattention to the care.
  • 00:03:28.521 --> 00:03:29.956
  • He didn't say give attentionto the problem or the stress.
  • 00:03:29.989 --> 00:03:32.325
  • He said, "Giveattention to my Word."
  • 00:03:32.358 --> 00:03:34.027
  • And do what with your ears?
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:35.528
  • "Incline your earsunto my saying."
  • 00:03:35.561 --> 00:03:37.163
  • Verse 21 he says, "Let themwords not depart from your eyes;
  • 00:03:37.196 --> 00:03:42.702
  • keep them words in themidst of your heart."
  • 00:03:42.735 --> 00:03:46.673
  • Keep it in themidst of your heart.
  • 00:03:46.706 --> 00:03:48.274
  • Verse 22, "For they," thosewords, "are life unto those that
  • 00:03:48.308 --> 00:03:53.379
  • find them."
  • 00:03:53.413 --> 00:03:54.714
  • And watch this.
  • 00:03:54.747 --> 00:03:56.049
  • They're even health to alltheir flesh, praise God?
  • 00:03:56.082 --> 00:03:59.252
  • Verse 23.
  • 00:03:59.285 --> 00:04:00.586
  • Glory.
  • 00:04:00.620 --> 00:04:01.921
  • He says, "Keep thy heart,"another word here is to guard
  • 00:04:01.954 --> 00:04:05.124
  • your heart, "with all diligence;for out of your heart are the
  • 00:04:05.158 --> 00:04:11.064
  • issues of life."
  • 00:04:11.097 --> 00:04:13.433
  • Comes through your eye gate,gets into your mind, becomes a
  • 00:04:13.466 --> 00:04:16.903
  • part of your emotions, you nowput it in your heart, and now
  • 00:04:16.936 --> 00:04:21.074
  • the issue was born out ofthe attention you gave it.
  • 00:04:21.107 --> 00:04:26.346
  • The issue was born out of theattention you gave it, and he
  • 00:04:26.379 --> 00:04:29.682
  • says you don't have to do it.
  • 00:04:29.716 --> 00:04:31.317
  • Let not your heart be troubled,neither let it be afraid, so you
  • 00:04:31.351 --> 00:04:34.754
  • have authority overwhat gets in your heart.
  • 00:04:34.787 --> 00:04:38.257
  • You have authorityover a troubled heart.
  • 00:04:38.291 --> 00:04:41.060
  • You even haveauthority over a broken heart.
  • 00:04:41.094 --> 00:04:43.229
  • I mean, things happen, and, youknow, I'm sure everybody has had
  • 00:04:43.262 --> 00:04:46.566
  • their heart broken once ortwice,
  • 00:04:46.599 --> 00:04:47.967
  • but you haveauthority over that.
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.302
  • You gotta just startworking yourself out of that.
  • 00:04:49.335 --> 00:04:50.636
  • You got to get the glue and
  • 00:04:50.670 --> 00:04:51.971
  • start piecing itback together again.
  • 00:04:52.004 --> 00:04:53.306
  • You just can't sit there with
  • 00:04:53.339 --> 00:04:54.640
  • your heart brokenall over the place.
  • 00:04:54.674 --> 00:04:55.975
  • You gotta live.You gotta keep living.
  • 00:04:56.008 --> 00:04:57.310
  • "My heart is broke.
  • 00:04:57.343 --> 00:04:58.644
  • I feel like I just wanna die."
  • 00:04:58.678 --> 00:05:00.113
  • No, you have authority now.
  • 00:05:00.146 --> 00:05:01.881
  • You can go that way if youchoose to, or you can take
  • 00:05:01.914 --> 00:05:04.917
  • authority and say, "No,I'm not gonna do that.
  • 00:05:04.951 --> 00:05:07.086
  • I'mma go to the Word, get mesome peace," glory be to God,
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:10.623
  • "and I'm gonna be free fromcare, free from stress,
  • 00:05:10.656 --> 00:05:13.159
  • even free from grief."
  • 00:05:13.192 --> 00:05:16.162
  • Grief is, you know, you'resuffering the loss of someone.
  • 00:05:16.195 --> 00:05:19.198
  • You see it as a loss, and you'vegot to learn how peace can be
  • 00:05:19.232 --> 00:05:23.503
  • used as a weapon.
  • 00:05:23.536 --> 00:05:24.971
  • You determine, you determine,ladies and gentlemen, the
  • 00:05:25.004 --> 00:05:29.976
  • condition of your heart,you do by making the choice.
  • 00:05:30.009 --> 00:05:33.813
  • Either Satan is gonna ride thatnegative emotion, get you away
  • 00:05:33.846 --> 00:05:36.716
  • from the will of God, oryou're gonna get in the Word
  • 00:05:36.749 --> 00:05:39.152
  • immediately and say, "I'mhere to get some peace.
  • 00:05:39.185 --> 00:05:41.387
  • I'm here to get somepeace," all right?
  • 00:05:41.421 --> 00:05:43.823
  • Now, let's look at this.
  • 00:05:43.856 --> 00:05:45.858
  • Go to Romans 14:19.
  • 00:05:45.892 --> 00:05:50.229
  • Romans 14:19, and I'mma spend
  • 00:05:50.263 --> 00:05:52.064
  • some more time on howto get this peace.
  • 00:05:52.098 --> 00:05:54.967
  • Verse 19 says, "Let us thereforefollow after the things which
  • 00:05:55.001 --> 00:05:57.804
  • make for peace."
  • 00:05:57.837 --> 00:05:59.138
  • Look at that.
  • 00:05:59.172 --> 00:06:00.473
  • So, there are some--there arethings we gotta follow after,
  • 00:06:00.506 --> 00:06:02.341
  • and that's the Word, things wegot to follow after, things that
  • 00:06:02.375 --> 00:06:07.146
  • make for peace.
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:09.048
  • "And things wherewith onemay edify one another."
  • 00:06:09.081 --> 00:06:12.518
  • So, what are youfollowing after?
  • 00:06:12.552 --> 00:06:14.720
  • Not only get in the Word, butwhat are you hanging around?
  • 00:06:14.754 --> 00:06:17.490
  • Are you hanging--listen,let's just be straight.
  • 00:06:17.523 --> 00:06:19.592
  • You're hanging aroundpeople that stress you out.
  • 00:06:19.625 --> 00:06:23.896
  • That it's the wrong flock, man.
  • 00:06:23.930 --> 00:06:26.365
  • Some of y'all callthese people your friends.
  • 00:06:26.399 --> 00:06:27.867
  • They're not your friend at all.
  • 00:06:27.900 --> 00:06:29.335
  • They're leeches.
  • 00:06:29.368 --> 00:06:31.037
  • They're associates.
  • 00:06:31.070 --> 00:06:33.105
  • They're pitiful peoplewho don't value themselves.
  • 00:06:33.139 --> 00:06:35.541
  • They're looking for somebodyto be as miserable as they are.
  • 00:06:35.575 --> 00:06:39.078
  • You probably will feel better byyourself than with some of the
  • 00:06:39.111 --> 00:06:43.282
  • people you hang with.
  • 00:06:43.316 --> 00:06:45.451
  • I said you'll probably feelbetter by yourself, instead of
  • 00:06:45.485 --> 00:06:49.922
  • hanging around with somebodythat's making you feel some
  • 00:06:49.956 --> 00:06:52.058
  • kinda way.
  • 00:06:52.091 --> 00:06:53.726
  • You don't even know what itis, but just, you know, when
  • 00:06:53.759 --> 00:06:55.628
  • you--every time you hang outwith that person, you just start
  • 00:06:55.661 --> 00:06:57.530
  • feeling some kinda way.
  • 00:06:57.563 --> 00:06:59.966
  • Well, stop hanging out withsomebody who making you feel
  • 00:06:59.999 --> 00:07:03.302
  • some kinda way thatyou can't even label.
  • 00:07:03.336 --> 00:07:07.073
  • They make you feel so bad, youdon't even know how you feel.
  • 00:07:07.106 --> 00:07:10.710
  • "Well, how did itmake you feel?"
  • 00:07:10.743 --> 00:07:12.044
  • "Some kinda way."
  • 00:07:12.078 --> 00:07:13.479
  • What's that?
  • 00:07:13.513 --> 00:07:16.182
  • You know what?
  • 00:07:16.215 --> 00:07:18.851
  • Taffi and I taught a programyesterday on the difference
  • 00:07:18.885 --> 00:07:21.220
  • between being alone and lonely.
  • 00:07:21.254 --> 00:07:24.490
  • There is a difference.
  • 00:07:24.524 --> 00:07:27.660
  • You can be around a lottapeople and still be lonely.
  • 00:07:27.693 --> 00:07:31.097
  • Loneliness can occur becauseof past rejections, betrayals,
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:36.135
  • things that you kinda hang onto, and sometimes you think,
  • 00:07:36.168 --> 00:07:39.872
  • "Well, if I could just getwith people,
  • 00:07:39.906 --> 00:07:42.208
  • I won't be lonely anymore."
  • 00:07:42.241 --> 00:07:43.543
  • You're just putting a Band-Aidon that, and, you know, it's
  • 00:07:43.576 --> 00:07:47.513
  • just not gonna work out right.
  • 00:07:47.547 --> 00:07:49.715
  • Until you can learn how to beokay with you, by yourself,
  • 00:07:49.749 --> 00:07:54.587
  • you're really not gonna beokay around other people.
  • 00:07:54.620 --> 00:07:57.823
  • You gotta be okay witheverything about you.
  • 00:07:57.857 --> 00:08:00.826
  • Seriously, you gotta beokay--quit comparing yourself
  • 00:08:00.860 --> 00:08:03.429
  • amongst yourself.
  • 00:08:03.462 --> 00:08:04.764
  • Bible says we must not do that.
  • 00:08:04.797 --> 00:08:06.365
  • Don't compareyourself amongst yourself.
  • 00:08:06.399 --> 00:08:08.100
  • See, every time you compareyourself amongst yourself, you
  • 00:08:08.134 --> 00:08:10.036
  • limit God, because whenyou compare yourself amongst
  • 00:08:10.069 --> 00:08:12.204
  • yourself you're saying,"This is as far as I can go."
  • 00:08:12.238 --> 00:08:15.575
  • And then, you startlooking for somebody else.
  • 00:08:15.608 --> 00:08:16.909
  • "Well, such-and-so did that."
  • 00:08:16.943 --> 00:08:18.344
  • See, you just limited God,because you said to him, "This
  • 00:08:18.377 --> 00:08:20.580
  • is as far as I can go."
  • 00:08:20.613 --> 00:08:22.114
  • I don't do it anymore.
  • 00:08:22.148 --> 00:08:23.449
  • I don't have any time to becomparing myself amongst myself.
  • 00:08:23.482 --> 00:08:26.519
  • I look at Jesus and when I seeJesus he's like,
  • 00:08:26.552 --> 00:08:28.588
  • "Oh, boy, we can do this."
  • 00:08:28.621 --> 00:08:29.922
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:08:29.956 --> 00:08:31.257
  • If they discover life on Mars, Iwill begin to believe God for a
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:34.226
  • space shuttle becausethey need the gospel.
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:37.763
  • Yeah, some of y'all,"What y'all talking about?"
  • 00:08:37.797 --> 00:08:39.532
  • If they discover life onMars, what am I saying?
  • 00:08:39.565 --> 00:08:41.701
  • I'm going to preachthe gospel on Mars.
  • 00:08:41.734 --> 00:08:44.837
  • I done been everywhere else.
  • 00:08:44.870 --> 00:08:46.172
  • Might as well go onMars to preach the gospel.
  • 00:08:46.205 --> 00:08:48.874
  • "Well, that's foolish?"
  • 00:08:48.908 --> 00:08:50.242
  • Well, you better hope they don'tdiscover life on Mars, because
  • 00:08:50.276 --> 00:08:52.912
  • God may call you togo with me, amen?
  • 00:08:52.945 --> 00:09:00.086
  • All right, let's work ongetting this some more.
  • 00:09:00.119 --> 00:09:02.054
  • Romans 8:6.
  • 00:09:02.088 --> 00:09:03.422
  • How do you get peace?
  • 00:09:03.456 --> 00:09:05.958
  • Let's get it naileddown on a practical place.
  • 00:09:05.992 --> 00:09:08.928
  • How do I get peace?
  • 00:09:08.961 --> 00:09:12.565
  • "For to be carnally minded isdeath; but to be spiritually
  • 00:09:12.598 --> 00:09:16.002
  • minded is life and peace."
  • 00:09:16.035 --> 00:09:18.437
  • All right, now whatis a carnal mind?
  • 00:09:18.471 --> 00:09:20.373
  • A carnal mind, some peoplewould just say, it means flesh.
  • 00:09:20.406 --> 00:09:23.676
  • Well, a carnal mind is tobe--it's a mind that's dominated
  • 00:09:23.709 --> 00:09:29.248
  • by the five senses.
  • 00:09:29.281 --> 00:09:31.384
  • It's a mind that's dominated bywhat you see, by what you hear,
  • 00:09:31.417 --> 00:09:35.888
  • by what you feel.
  • 00:09:35.921 --> 00:09:38.190
  • So, God gave you those fivesenses, the senses, so you can
  • 00:09:38.224 --> 00:09:41.627
  • enjoy life, but he doesn't want
  • 00:09:41.661 --> 00:09:43.529
  • you to be dominatedby those senses.
  • 00:09:43.562 --> 00:09:45.731
  • So, you see something andwhat you see just dominates your
  • 00:09:45.765 --> 00:09:48.300
  • whole life, right?
  • 00:09:48.334 --> 00:09:50.436
  • That's not what he meant.
  • 00:09:50.469 --> 00:09:52.204
  • Or you hear something and, oh,that just dominates and occupies
  • 00:09:52.238 --> 00:09:56.676
  • your whole life.
  • 00:09:56.709 --> 00:09:58.277
  • No, they're not todominate your life.
  • 00:09:58.310 --> 00:10:01.714
  • They'll bring about an awarenessbut not to dominate, so what he
  • 00:10:01.747 --> 00:10:04.917
  • says is if you allow your sensesto dominate your life, it's
  • 00:10:04.950 --> 00:10:11.090
  • gonna lead to death.
  • 00:10:11.123 --> 00:10:12.692
  • Death meaningseparation from God.
  • 00:10:12.725 --> 00:10:14.794
  • It's gonna lead to death,and then, ultimately, once you
  • 00:10:14.827 --> 00:10:18.864
  • involve yourself in spiritualdeath, it will bring in such a
  • 00:10:18.898 --> 00:10:22.568
  • diseasement thateventually you'll die, as well.
  • 00:10:22.601 --> 00:10:27.206
  • But he says but to bespiritually minded--so, John
  • 00:10:27.239 --> 00:10:30.843
  • 6:63 says, you know,the Word is spirit.
  • 00:10:30.876 --> 00:10:33.512
  • So, again, we know that when theWord of God is preached and then
  • 00:10:33.546 --> 00:10:37.583
  • you receive the Word ofGod, the Word is spirit.
  • 00:10:37.616 --> 00:10:40.419
  • The only place you canget--become spiritually minded
  • 00:10:40.453 --> 00:10:43.456
  • is from the Word of God.
  • 00:10:43.489 --> 00:10:45.024
  • That's why I'm saying aChristian that's trying to be a
  • 00:10:45.057 --> 00:10:46.659
  • Christian without the Word of
  • 00:10:46.692 --> 00:10:47.993
  • God limits his authorityon the planet.
  • 00:10:48.027 --> 00:10:51.397
  • It's the Word of God thatgrants you access to certain
  • 00:10:51.430 --> 00:10:54.300
  • authorities that you haveover physical things, and we've
  • 00:10:54.333 --> 00:10:59.138
  • become so carnal-minded that wejust rule out the fact that we
  • 00:10:59.171 --> 00:11:03.442
  • can have authority over thisphysical world, because we don't
  • 00:11:03.476 --> 00:11:07.880
  • know anything about how toobtain the spiritual equipment
  • 00:11:07.913 --> 00:11:11.217
  • to take authorityover the physical world.
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:13.119
  • And the Bible says to bespiritually minded, the only way
  • 00:11:13.152 --> 00:11:15.654
  • you can become spirituallyminded, is to renew your mind
  • 00:11:15.688 --> 00:11:18.324
  • with the Word of God,which is spirit, okay?
  • 00:11:18.357 --> 00:11:21.393
  • And so, you take theWord, which is spirit.
  • 00:11:21.427 --> 00:11:23.729
  • You renew your mind with it.
  • 00:11:23.763 --> 00:11:25.131
  • You become spiritually minded.
  • 00:11:25.164 --> 00:11:27.633
  • He says now that you'respiritually minded you're gonna
  • 00:11:27.666 --> 00:11:30.603
  • have life and peace.
  • 00:11:30.636 --> 00:11:32.671
  • Remember what I said?
  • 00:11:32.705 --> 00:11:35.040
  • So goes your mindset,also goes your emotions set.
  • 00:11:35.074 --> 00:11:42.348
  • Whatever you're exposed todetermines the way you think.
  • 00:11:42.381 --> 00:11:45.317
  • The way you thinkdetermines the way you feel.
  • 00:11:45.351 --> 00:11:47.586
  • Way you feel determinesthe decisions you make.
  • 00:11:47.620 --> 00:11:50.022
  • Your decisionsdetermine your actions.
  • 00:11:50.055 --> 00:11:51.957
  • Your actionsdetermines your habits.
  • 00:11:51.991 --> 00:11:53.959
  • Your habitsdetermine your character.
  • 00:11:53.993 --> 00:11:55.728
  • Your characterdetermines your destination.
  • 00:11:55.761 --> 00:11:58.764
  • If you do not like yourdestination, just go in reverse.
  • 00:11:58.798 --> 00:12:01.901
  • If you don't like yourdestination,
  • 00:12:01.934 --> 00:12:03.235
  • change your character.
  • 00:12:03.269 --> 00:12:04.570
  • If you don't like yourcharacter, change your habits.
  • 00:12:04.603 --> 00:12:06.372
  • If you don't like yourhabits, change your actions.
  • 00:12:06.405 --> 00:12:08.641
  • If you don't like youractions, change your decisions.
  • 00:12:08.674 --> 00:12:11.110
  • If you don't like yourdecisions,
  • 00:12:11.143 --> 00:12:12.678
  • change the way you feel.
  • 00:12:12.711 --> 00:12:14.180
  • If you don't like the way youfeel, if you don't like the way
  • 00:12:14.213 --> 00:12:16.182
  • you feel, if you don't like theway you feel,
  • 00:12:16.215 --> 00:12:18.818
  • change the way you think.
  • 00:12:18.851 --> 00:12:21.120
  • If you don't like what you'rethinking, change what you're
  • 00:12:21.153 --> 00:12:23.222
  • exposing yourself to, whatyou're hanging around, what
  • 00:12:23.255 --> 00:12:28.194
  • you're hearing, what you'rewatching, what you're doing.
  • 00:12:28.227 --> 00:12:32.431
  • What you doing?
  • 00:12:32.464 --> 00:12:34.867
  • You hear me?
  • 00:12:34.900 --> 00:12:36.202
  • What you doing?
  • 00:12:36.235 --> 00:12:37.536
  • Whatever you're doing the most.
  • 00:12:37.570 --> 00:12:39.638
  • See, what happens is we createhabits first, and then those
  • 00:12:39.672 --> 00:12:43.509
  • habits we created turnaround and create us.
  • 00:12:43.542 --> 00:12:49.181
  • "Well, there ain't nothingwrong with what I'm doing."
  • 00:12:49.215 --> 00:12:50.816
  • Oh, no, no, you're gonna createa habit, and then that habit is
  • 00:12:50.850 --> 00:12:53.452
  • gonna turn around and createyou, which now becomes your
  • 00:12:53.485 --> 00:12:55.721
  • character, and then it's gonnalead you to your destination.
  • 00:12:55.754 --> 00:12:59.558
  • This is life.
  • 00:12:59.592 --> 00:13:00.893
  • This is life.
  • 00:13:00.926 --> 00:13:02.761
  • It's just the world's gotten soout there, it's almost like very
  • 00:13:02.795 --> 00:13:06.732
  • few people understandhow life works anymore.
  • 00:13:06.765 --> 00:13:09.935
  • We think that, you know, quesera, sera, whatever will be,
  • 00:13:09.969 --> 00:13:12.638
  • will be, and then we come upwith sayings like--
  • 00:13:12.671 --> 00:13:15.241
  • what's that saying?
  • 00:13:15.274 --> 00:13:16.575
  • "It is what it is."
  • 00:13:16.609 --> 00:13:18.477
  • No, no, no, youdon't understand life.
  • 00:13:18.510 --> 00:13:20.713
  • See, if you understood lifethen you'll understand--you
  • 00:13:20.746 --> 00:13:23.082
  • understand that where youare right now is a result of a
  • 00:13:23.115 --> 00:13:26.285
  • decision, because a decisionis the open door into reality.
  • 00:13:26.318 --> 00:13:30.456
  • It doesn't become a realityuntil you make a decision, and
  • 00:13:30.489 --> 00:13:33.025
  • once you make a decision thenyou're gonna act, and then once
  • 00:13:33.058 --> 00:13:35.895
  • you act then you're gonna createa habit, 'cause what you do the
  • 00:13:35.928 --> 00:13:38.597
  • most is what'sgonna create a habit.
  • 00:13:38.631 --> 00:13:40.566
  • Then the habit is gonna create acharacter, and that character is
  • 00:13:40.599 --> 00:13:42.968
  • what people have come to knowabout you and what you've come
  • 00:13:43.002 --> 00:13:45.304
  • to know about yourself, andthen you end up in a destination
  • 00:13:45.337 --> 00:13:47.806
  • because of what you dowhen you're not seen.
  • 00:13:47.840 --> 00:13:53.712
  • Real character is notwhat you do in public.
  • 00:13:53.746 --> 00:13:56.248
  • It's what you do whennobody can see you, and you're
  • 00:13:56.282 --> 00:14:00.653
  • being--you're subject to doingstuff that nobody is not seeing.
  • 00:14:00.686 --> 00:14:06.225
  • So, coming to church andpretending and coming to church
  • 00:14:06.258 --> 00:14:09.228
  • and perfecting phoniness andputting a mask on,
  • 00:14:09.261 --> 00:14:12.131
  • that doesn't help.
  • 00:14:12.164 --> 00:14:15.701
  • I don't mind sharing with youthe crap I've gone through in my
  • 00:14:15.734 --> 00:14:19.204
  • life if it can help ya, butI'm not gonna get up here, put a
  • 00:14:19.238 --> 00:14:23.575
  • collar on, stand up on thepulpit, and act like I am a
  • 00:14:23.609 --> 00:14:27.046
  • person 'cause I'm a preacher,and I ain't never had no issue.
  • 00:14:27.079 --> 00:14:30.182
  • How I'mma take you somewhereif I ain't been there myself?
  • 00:14:30.215 --> 00:14:34.486
  • I'm telling you I knowwhat a finish line is.
  • 00:14:34.520 --> 00:14:37.022
  • I know what--the line you gottacross, and I'm telling you if
  • 00:14:37.056 --> 00:14:39.925
  • you get across that line andyou get just a taste of victory,
  • 00:14:39.959 --> 00:14:44.830
  • then you'll know the devildoes not control your life, and
  • 00:14:44.863 --> 00:14:47.066
  • you'll know youare not stuck, amen?
  • 00:14:47.099 --> 00:14:52.538
  • One day, I'm gonna be ableto preach like I want to.
  • 00:14:52.571 --> 00:14:55.341
  • I'm gonna be able to sayeverything I wanna say.
  • 00:14:55.374 --> 00:14:59.278
  • Like, if the Lord were to visitme tonight and say,
  • 00:14:59.311 --> 00:15:01.313
  • "All right, tonight that's it.
  • 00:15:01.347 --> 00:15:03.115
  • You got one more week," I'msaying stuff you ain't never
  • 00:15:03.148 --> 00:15:06.385
  • thought you would ever hear ina church, 'cause you know you
  • 00:15:06.418 --> 00:15:10.589
  • ain't got no time.
  • 00:15:10.622 --> 00:15:11.991
  • You just say it, but now I gotto, "Well, you know, they're
  • 00:15:12.024 --> 00:15:16.428
  • young in the Lord and, well,
  • 00:15:16.462 --> 00:15:18.364
  • they've been withme a long time."
  • 00:15:18.397 --> 00:15:20.466
  • And it's like puttingWonder Woman's lasso on me.
  • 00:15:20.499 --> 00:15:22.735
  • I ain't got nothing buttruth coming out my mouth.
  • 00:15:22.768 --> 00:15:25.270
  • All right, so you gotta become
  • 00:15:25.304 --> 00:15:26.605
  • spiritually minded if you wantpeace in life.
  • 00:15:26.638 --> 00:15:28.607
  • Spiritual mindsetproduces peace in life.
  • 00:15:28.640 --> 00:15:31.643
  • Spiritual mindset.
  • 00:15:31.677 --> 00:15:32.978
  • You know your maturity isbased on whether or not you are
  • 00:15:33.012 --> 00:15:36.682
  • spiritually mindedor carnal minded?
  • 00:15:36.715 --> 00:15:39.118
  • You are not a immature Christian
  • 00:15:39.151 --> 00:15:40.652
  • 'cause you onlybeen saved a week.
  • 00:15:40.686 --> 00:15:42.654
  • You are a immature Christianbecause you still can't control
  • 00:15:42.688 --> 00:15:44.823
  • your emotions.
  • 00:15:44.857 --> 00:15:46.825
  • You are a immature Christian
  • 00:15:46.859 --> 00:15:48.394
  • because you don't haveemotional stability.
  • 00:15:48.427 --> 00:15:50.996
  • You're an immature Christian
  • 00:15:51.030 --> 00:15:52.698
  • 'cause you're stillgoing off on folks.
  • 00:15:52.731 --> 00:15:56.869
  • It tells a lot about aperson who can't
  • 00:15:56.902 --> 00:15:59.505
  • control their emotions.
  • 00:15:59.538 --> 00:16:01.607
  • What determines ifyou're a mature Christian?
  • 00:16:01.640 --> 00:16:03.275
  • Not 'cause you've been savedfor 30 years all your life.
  • 00:16:03.308 --> 00:16:05.577
  • You are a mature Christianbecause you are spiritually
  • 00:16:05.611 --> 00:16:08.247
  • minded, and you know howto harness your emotions.
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:12.017
  • You know how tocontrol your emotions.
  • 00:16:12.051 --> 00:16:15.054
  • The weakest man inthe--on the planet is what?
  • 00:16:15.087 --> 00:16:17.756
  • The guy who can'tcontrol his emotions.
  • 00:16:17.790 --> 00:16:19.825
  • You're so weak, you get upset,and then you wanna get back with
  • 00:16:19.858 --> 00:16:22.461
  • somebody 'cause you fear beingdisrespected, and then you put
  • 00:16:22.494 --> 00:16:25.364
  • your hands on 'em.
  • 00:16:25.397 --> 00:16:26.832
  • And then, they're smart now,so they're gonna sue you for
  • 00:16:26.865 --> 00:16:28.767
  • battery, simple battery, butit's enough to send you in jail
  • 00:16:28.801 --> 00:16:31.203
  • because you're onprobation at this time.
  • 00:16:31.236 --> 00:16:33.072
  • And now you're in jail.
  • 00:16:33.105 --> 00:16:34.406
  • Now you done lost your job.
  • 00:16:34.440 --> 00:16:35.741
  • All this stuff happened 'causeyou could not control your
  • 00:16:35.774 --> 00:16:38.710
  • emotions andsomehow justified it.
  • 00:16:38.744 --> 00:16:41.847
  • "I ain't gonna let no--" andyou hear people say--the fear of
  • 00:16:41.880 --> 00:16:43.916
  • disrespect that a lotta menhave, it's not even disrespect.
  • 00:16:43.949 --> 00:16:47.352
  • You ain't evenbeen disrespected.
  • 00:16:47.386 --> 00:16:48.687
  • You're just scared they're gonnadisrespect you, so you prop
  • 00:16:48.720 --> 00:16:51.657
  • yourself up and the adrenalinegets to flowing, and you're
  • 00:16:51.690 --> 00:16:54.293
  • ready to respond beforeyou even get disrespected.
  • 00:16:54.326 --> 00:16:57.396
  • And you're theone get in trouble.
  • 00:16:57.429 --> 00:17:00.799
  • "How I got there?"
  • 00:17:00.833 --> 00:17:04.203
  • Don't say it.
  • 00:17:04.236 --> 00:17:05.537
  • Just don't say it.
  • 00:17:05.571 --> 00:17:06.939
  • What you mean how you got there?
  • 00:17:06.972 --> 00:17:09.074
  • I'm bringing that upas an illustration.
  • 00:17:09.108 --> 00:17:11.043
  • I am telling you exactly whatyou have to do to live in peace,
  • 00:17:11.076 --> 00:17:19.284
  • but when you walk outta here andsay, "It don't take all that.
  • 00:17:19.318 --> 00:17:24.189
  • Ain't nobody got to get inthe Word to get no peace.
  • 00:17:24.223 --> 00:17:28.527
  • I'm just gonna--I'm under grace.
  • 00:17:28.560 --> 00:17:31.530
  • Lord, give me some peace."
  • 00:17:31.563 --> 00:17:35.734
  • So, what is the Lord gonna say?
  • 00:17:35.767 --> 00:17:37.636
  • "I've already given it to youthe day my Son spoke this Word
  • 00:17:37.669 --> 00:17:41.073
  • and said, 'My peace I leave untoyou.'"
  • 00:17:41.106 --> 00:17:45.477
  • But you won't get it.
  • 00:17:45.511 --> 00:17:47.412
  • Okay, lemme go on andshare some more Scripture.
  • 00:17:47.446 --> 00:17:51.416
  • All right, so what kinda mind
  • 00:17:51.450 --> 00:17:53.051
  • do you have to have inorder to have peace?
  • 00:17:53.085 --> 00:17:56.321
  • How do you get a spiritual mind?
  • 00:17:56.355 --> 00:17:58.657
  • Because the Word is what?
  • 00:17:58.690 --> 00:18:01.260
  • Yeah, praise Godpeople are listening.
  • 00:18:01.293 --> 00:18:03.028
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:18:03.061 --> 00:18:05.898
  • Look at Isaiah 26:3.
  • 00:18:05.931 --> 00:18:08.133
  • All right, how do I get peace?
  • 00:18:08.167 --> 00:18:09.468
  • "Thou will keep himin perfect peace."
  • 00:18:09.501 --> 00:18:10.802
  • Who?
  • 00:18:10.836 --> 00:18:12.137
  • I wanna be keptin perfect peace.
  • 00:18:12.171 --> 00:18:13.472
  • How many of you wanna bekept in perfect peace?
  • 00:18:13.505 --> 00:18:15.073
  • The Bible says we can live inpeace, and then the God of love
  • 00:18:15.107 --> 00:18:17.176
  • and peace will be with you.
  • 00:18:17.209 --> 00:18:18.610
  • All right, "Thou will keep himin perfect peace,
  • 00:18:18.644 --> 00:18:21.180
  • whose mind is," what?
  • 00:18:21.213 --> 00:18:24.816
  • "Stayed on thee," why?
  • 00:18:24.850 --> 00:18:26.451
  • "Because he--" oh, my God.
  • 00:18:26.485 --> 00:18:29.021
  • How clear can it be?
  • 00:18:29.054 --> 00:18:30.355
  • How clear can it be?
  • 00:18:30.389 --> 00:18:31.690
  • Get your mind stayed onhim, get you some peace.
  • 00:18:31.723 --> 00:18:34.893
  • Get your mind stayed onhim, get you some peace.
  • 00:18:34.927 --> 00:18:37.629
  • Look at Romans 10:15.
  • 00:18:37.663 --> 00:18:40.499
  • Romans 10:15.
  • 00:18:40.532 --> 00:18:43.135
  • Wow.
  • 00:18:43.168 --> 00:18:44.570
  • Wow.
  • 00:18:44.603 --> 00:18:46.205
  • I wish somebody would haveexplained this to me when I was
  • 00:18:46.238 --> 00:18:48.407
  • a young Christians.
  • 00:18:48.440 --> 00:18:50.475
  • "I'm searching for peace."
  • 00:18:50.509 --> 00:18:52.211
  • They just didn't show me,well, how to get the peace.
  • 00:18:52.244 --> 00:18:56.114
  • Look at verse 15.
  • 00:18:56.148 --> 00:18:57.449
  • "And how shall theypreach, except they be sent?
  • 00:18:57.482 --> 00:19:02.955
  • As it is written, How beautifulare the feet of them that preach
  • 00:19:02.988 --> 00:19:06.091
  • the good news," thegood news, "of peace."
  • 00:19:06.124 --> 00:19:11.463
  • The gospel, we know, is the newsabout this unmerited favor, but
  • 00:19:11.496 --> 00:19:15.867
  • he says--and here's therelationship, "The good news of
  • 00:19:15.901 --> 00:19:19.571
  • peace, and bring gladtidings of good things!"
  • 00:19:19.605 --> 00:19:23.408
  • This is right along in Lukechapter 2, verse 14, when they
  • 00:19:23.442 --> 00:19:28.480
  • said, "Peace on earth,good will towards men."
  • 00:19:28.513 --> 00:19:31.483
  • That was the gospel of peace.
  • 00:19:31.516 --> 00:19:32.851
  • The gospel of peace waseverything that Jesus did to
  • 00:19:32.884 --> 00:19:36.955
  • bring us peace from the law,everything that Jesus did to
  • 00:19:36.989 --> 00:19:43.829
  • separate us and to get usfree from condemnation, from
  • 00:19:43.862 --> 00:19:50.068
  • self-effort, fromperformance-based Christianity,
  • 00:19:50.102 --> 00:19:54.273
  • from the fear ofdeath, hell, and the grave.
  • 00:19:54.306 --> 00:19:58.510
  • Peace is on the earth.
  • 00:19:58.543 --> 00:19:59.845
  • Jesus is that peace, and whilewe're preaching this gospel of
  • 00:19:59.878 --> 00:20:03.582
  • grace, that's--I meet people whosay, "My life is--
  • 00:20:03.615 --> 00:20:06.818
  • I feel like I'm free.
  • 00:20:06.852 --> 00:20:08.153
  • I feel like I'm at peace,"because when you find out what
  • 00:20:08.186 --> 00:20:10.222
  • Jesus has done and itdoesn't require your behavior to
  • 00:20:10.255 --> 00:20:13.392
  • determine it but what he hasdone and then he'll change your
  • 00:20:13.425 --> 00:20:15.827
  • behavior, then things happen.
  • 00:20:15.861 --> 00:20:17.963
  • But that gospel of peaceis being preached today.
  • 00:20:17.996 --> 00:20:21.300
  • Philippians chapter 4:6-9.
  • 00:20:21.333 --> 00:20:24.036
  • "Be careful for nothing."
  • 00:20:24.069 --> 00:20:25.537
  • The Amplified says, "Don'tbe anxious for nothing."
  • 00:20:25.570 --> 00:20:27.806
  • Another version says,"Don't worry about nothing."
  • 00:20:27.839 --> 00:20:30.442
  • What?
  • 00:20:30.475 --> 00:20:31.910
  • Is there a way for me not to beanxious or worried about stuff?
  • 00:20:31.943 --> 00:20:34.746
  • How many of you know you'regonna have a opportunity to be
  • 00:20:34.780 --> 00:20:36.515
  • worried about stuffevery day of your life?
  • 00:20:36.548 --> 00:20:39.551
  • I mean, you can pick stuff out.
  • 00:20:39.584 --> 00:20:41.119
  • When you get up in the morning,
  • 00:20:41.153 --> 00:20:42.521
  • there'll be choicesyou can pick out.
  • 00:20:42.554 --> 00:20:43.989
  • "I can worry about this.I can worry about this."
  • 00:20:44.022 --> 00:20:46.258
  • But he says you know what?
  • 00:20:46.291 --> 00:20:47.592
  • He says be careful, don't beanxious,
  • 00:20:47.626 --> 00:20:49.127
  • or don't worry about anything.
  • 00:20:49.161 --> 00:20:50.862
  • Dude, I wanna knowhow that happens.
  • 00:20:50.896 --> 00:20:53.598
  • Is it possible for me to havethat kind of authority where I
  • 00:20:53.632 --> 00:20:57.102
  • don't have to beworried about anything?
  • 00:20:57.135 --> 00:20:58.837
  • Now, that doesn't mean thatthe issue is not gonna be there.
  • 00:20:58.870 --> 00:21:01.440
  • He says, "You don'thave to worry about it.
  • 00:21:01.473 --> 00:21:03.342
  • Show me what I need to do."
  • 00:21:03.375 --> 00:21:04.676
  • Look what he says.
  • 00:21:04.710 --> 00:21:06.078
  • He says now rather than beingworried, "But everything by
  • 00:21:06.111 --> 00:21:10.248
  • prayer and supplication withthanksgiving let your requests
  • 00:21:10.282 --> 00:21:13.018
  • be made known unto God."
  • 00:21:13.051 --> 00:21:14.353
  • You know what he is saying?
  • 00:21:14.386 --> 00:21:15.687
  • Rather than you keeping the
  • 00:21:15.721 --> 00:21:17.222
  • thing and worrying about it,give it to God.
  • 00:21:17.255 --> 00:21:21.426
  • Give it to God.
  • 00:21:21.460 --> 00:21:23.395
  • Almost you're gonna have to dothis, "All right, God,
  • 00:21:23.428 --> 00:21:24.863
  • I got bad news.I got a report.
  • 00:21:24.896 --> 00:21:26.865
  • All right, God, I'm casting thisover on you, and I'm gonna be
  • 00:21:26.898 --> 00:21:30.602
  • thankful that your Wordsays this, even though the
  • 00:21:30.635 --> 00:21:34.606
  • circumstance saysthat," all right?
  • 00:21:34.639 --> 00:21:37.476
  • So, you get a notice, they'reputting you outta your house.
  • 00:21:37.509 --> 00:21:41.947
  • "God, I'm not gonna take this.
  • 00:21:41.980 --> 00:21:43.515
  • I'm not gonna worry about this.
  • 00:21:43.548 --> 00:21:45.217
  • I cast this over on you, and Ithank you that all my needs are
  • 00:21:45.250 --> 00:21:48.387
  • met according toyour riches in glory."
  • 00:21:48.420 --> 00:21:50.489
  • See, the peace iscoming from what I know.
  • 00:21:50.522 --> 00:21:52.457
  • The joy is coming from what Iknow, but we choose to keep it.
  • 00:21:52.491 --> 00:21:59.097
  • All right, now let's talkabout that for a moment.
  • 00:21:59.131 --> 00:22:01.133
  • He tells you to cast it on him.
  • 00:22:01.166 --> 00:22:02.901
  • He tells you, "All right,don't worry about anything.
  • 00:22:02.934 --> 00:22:05.470
  • Don't worry about anything.
  • 00:22:05.504 --> 00:22:06.905
  • Just go ahead and through prayerand thanksgiving give it to God
  • 00:22:06.938 --> 00:22:11.009
  • and don't worry."
  • 00:22:11.042 --> 00:22:13.412
  • No, we don't do that.
  • 00:22:13.445 --> 00:22:15.947
  • We would rather operatein pride and keep it.
  • 00:22:15.981 --> 00:22:19.751
  • See, when God says cast yourcare on him 'cause he cares for
  • 00:22:19.785 --> 00:22:21.920
  • you and you don't cast it onhim,
  • 00:22:21.953 --> 00:22:23.855
  • you're operating in pride,not humility.
  • 00:22:23.889 --> 00:22:26.792
  • Humility is the guy who cast hiscare on God 'cause God said so.
  • 00:22:26.825 --> 00:22:30.762
  • A prideful guy says,"No, I'mma keep it.
  • 00:22:30.796 --> 00:22:34.166
  • I'mma be self-centered.
  • 00:22:34.199 --> 00:22:35.567
  • Y'all don't knowwhat I'm going through.
  • 00:22:35.600 --> 00:22:37.002
  • You just don't understand."
  • 00:22:37.035 --> 00:22:38.437
  • And, see, gotta be careful asChristians that you don't keep
  • 00:22:38.470 --> 00:22:41.006
  • trying to change therules and then make excuses.
  • 00:22:41.039 --> 00:22:44.075
  • And we love doing that.
  • 00:22:44.109 --> 00:22:45.410
  • We love trying to change therules to fit our situation, and
  • 00:22:45.444 --> 00:22:48.180
  • then make excuses, andthen blame other
  • 00:22:48.213 --> 00:22:50.882
  • people for where we are.
  • 00:22:50.916 --> 00:22:53.752
  • You gotta cast it on him.
  • 00:22:53.785 --> 00:22:56.188
  • "God, I'm praying about it,and I'm thanking you
  • 00:22:56.221 --> 00:22:58.023
  • that it's already done.
  • 00:22:58.056 --> 00:23:00.125
  • And, Father, I giveyou thanksgiving your
  • 00:23:00.158 --> 00:23:01.726
  • Word says this.
  • 00:23:01.760 --> 00:23:03.228
  • Even though that's going thisway, your Word says this, and,
  • 00:23:03.261 --> 00:23:06.565
  • Lord, I just thank God I'mmaking my request known unto
  • 00:23:06.598 --> 00:23:08.733
  • you, and I justappreciate it so much."
  • 00:23:08.767 --> 00:23:12.237
  • And go and pray in the HolyGhost and praise the Lord.
  • 00:23:12.270 --> 00:23:15.507
  • You actually have to do this.
  • 00:23:15.540 --> 00:23:16.842
  • This just can't be mepreaching about it.
  • 00:23:16.875 --> 00:23:19.211
  • It's gotta be you doing it.
  • 00:23:19.244 --> 00:23:21.546
  • You ain't gonna never know whatI'm preaching about until you
  • 00:23:21.580 --> 00:23:24.783
  • actually, like, do it, and alotta things you need in your
  • 00:23:24.816 --> 00:23:29.120
  • life is a wisdom issue.
  • 00:23:29.154 --> 00:23:34.359
  • Sometimes, if you just couldhear the answer of what you're
  • 00:23:34.392 --> 00:23:38.430
  • supposed to do, what you'resupposed to say, that's the
  • 00:23:38.463 --> 00:23:41.500
  • breakthrough of how to getout of a whole lotta stuff.
  • 00:23:41.533 --> 00:23:43.468
  • A lotta times youjust lack wisdom.
  • 00:23:43.502 --> 00:23:45.203
  • You're looking for somebody togive you something or something
  • 00:23:45.237 --> 00:23:47.272
  • to fall out the sky, and thereis wisdom right there screaming
  • 00:23:47.305 --> 00:23:50.575
  • in the street.
  • 00:23:50.609 --> 00:23:51.910
  • God trying to show it to you.
  • 00:23:51.943 --> 00:23:53.245
  • God trying to show it to you,but when you have no peace you
  • 00:23:53.278 --> 00:23:55.847
  • can't hear it, andyou can't see it.
  • 00:23:55.881 --> 00:23:58.350
  • You're distracted by the care.
