  • Taffi: John chapter 4,and this was the woman
  • 00:01:40.380 --> 00:01:45.618
  • who was at the well.
  • 00:01:45.652 --> 00:01:49.789
  • I'm telling you, it's time forus to have an encounter
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:55.695
  • with Jesus at the well.
  • 00:01:55.728 --> 00:01:58.798
  • It's time for us to meet Jesusat this time and at this season
  • 00:01:58.831 --> 00:02:08.841
  • and at this place, andconsequently, our lives
  • 00:02:09.642 --> 00:02:14.047
  • will be turned upside down.
  • 00:02:14.080 --> 00:02:17.617
  • So when we look here in Johnchapter 4, it was so hot in
  • 00:02:17.650 --> 00:02:24.724
  • Jerusalem that most would go towork early in the morning and
  • 00:02:24.757 --> 00:02:29.696
  • take a long break during themiddle of the day when it was
  • 00:02:29.729 --> 00:02:33.399
  • the hottest, and then theywill return to work later
  • 00:02:33.433 --> 00:02:36.936
  • in the eveningwhen it was cooler.
  • 00:02:36.970 --> 00:02:39.305
  • And since the Samaritanswere those who were despised by
  • 00:02:39.339 --> 00:02:45.144
  • people, thank God, Jesus didn'tdespise the Samaritans, but
  • 00:02:45.178 --> 00:02:50.149
  • Jesus was intentional aboutincluding them, about bringing
  • 00:02:50.183 --> 00:02:53.786
  • them in, ministering to women,ministering to the Samaritans,
  • 00:02:53.820 --> 00:03:00.260
  • going out of his way on anassignment so that he could
  • 00:03:00.293 --> 00:03:07.200
  • remove burdens and hecould destroy yokes.
  • 00:03:07.233 --> 00:03:12.272
  • It was out of his compassion.
  • 00:03:12.305 --> 00:03:14.274
  • The Bible says that he extendedhis journey and went to a place
  • 00:03:14.307 --> 00:03:20.113
  • where normallypeople would not go.
  • 00:03:20.146 --> 00:03:24.550
  • But you know what?
  • 00:03:24.584 --> 00:03:25.985
  • I believe it was all because itwas time for a divine encounter.
  • 00:03:26.019 --> 00:03:32.625
  • So this woman went to the wellto draw water during the middle
  • 00:03:33.726 --> 00:03:36.596
  • of the day when she did notexpect to run into anyone,
  • 00:03:36.629 --> 00:03:40.533
  • but you know who she ran into?
  • 00:03:40.566 --> 00:03:42.468
  • She ran into Jesus.
  • 00:03:42.502 --> 00:03:46.572
  • It is the normalcy ofour lives.
  • 00:03:46.606 --> 00:03:48.841
  • It may be, you know, where we'rejust, kind of, doin' the errands
  • 00:03:48.875 --> 00:03:53.379
  • or running or going through themotions, and so it was when
  • 00:03:53.413 --> 00:03:58.017
  • she had no idea who wouldawait her at the well.
  • 00:03:58.051 --> 00:04:04.257
  • And as a result of her goingto the well, she ran into Jesus
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:11.597
  • because Jesus knewthat she would be there.
  • 00:04:11.631 --> 00:04:17.303
  • She went for water, but he gaveher living water so
  • 00:04:17.337 --> 00:04:25.545
  • she would never thirst again.
  • 00:04:25.578 --> 00:04:30.750
  • I'm telling you, you can gothrough your life, and you think
  • 00:04:30.783 --> 00:04:33.920
  • that, "Hey, I'm justgoin' through the routine.
  • 00:04:33.953 --> 00:04:36.389
  • I'm just showin' up for work.
  • 00:04:36.422 --> 00:04:38.358
  • I'm just showin' upand just serving.
  • 00:04:38.391 --> 00:04:40.326
  • I'm just, you know, changingthe--I'm just teaching
  • 00:04:40.360 --> 00:04:44.731
  • in the classroom.
  • 00:04:44.764 --> 00:04:46.833
  • I'm just, you know, doingwhatever the mundane tasks are,
  • 00:04:46.866 --> 00:04:50.403
  • the routine tasks," but all of asudden, Jesus meets you there.
  • 00:04:50.436 --> 00:04:57.310
  • Jesus has anappointment with you.
  • 00:04:57.343 --> 00:05:01.748
  • He has carved heavens agenda andmade it a point to connect with
  • 00:05:01.781 --> 00:05:07.487
  • you at that very hour, and whenhe came to the well and when he
  • 00:05:07.520 --> 00:05:14.060
  • talked with her, he recognizedthat he would change her life,
  • 00:05:14.093 --> 00:05:23.469
  • and so he has conversationhere with her at Jacob's
  • 00:05:23.503 --> 00:05:27.507
  • well in verse 6.
  • 00:05:27.540 --> 00:05:30.877
  • "It was about the sixth hour.
  • 00:05:30.910 --> 00:05:33.980
  • There comes a woman ofSamaria to draw water.
  • 00:05:34.013 --> 00:05:36.182
  • Jesus says to her,'Give me drink.'"
  • 00:05:36.215 --> 00:05:39.619
  • "Then the woman--"in verse 9, skip there.
  • 00:05:39.652 --> 00:05:43.389
  • "The Samaritan woman said tohim, 'How is it that you, being
  • 00:05:43.423 --> 00:05:47.160
  • a Jew, ask me, a Samaritanof a woman, for a drink?
  • 00:05:47.193 --> 00:05:51.898
  • For the Jews have nothing todo with the Samaritans.'
  • 00:05:51.931 --> 00:05:58.504
  • Jesus answered her, 'If you hadonly known and had recognized
  • 00:05:58.538 --> 00:06:03.009
  • God's gift, and who this is thatis saying to you, "Give me
  • 00:06:03.042 --> 00:06:09.315
  • drink," you would ask himinstead, and he would have
  • 00:06:09.348 --> 00:06:17.156
  • given you living water.'"
  • 00:06:17.190 --> 00:06:21.494
  • I'm telling you, shehad a come-to-Jesus meeting.
  • 00:06:21.527 --> 00:06:26.432
  • Jesus got her all together.
  • 00:06:26.466 --> 00:06:29.802
  • And so it is, when we have thesedivine encounters, he jacked her
  • 00:06:29.836 --> 00:06:36.676
  • up and changed her tire, readher mail about how she was,
  • 00:06:36.709 --> 00:06:41.314
  • you know, on the fifth marriageand on the fifth relationship,
  • 00:06:41.347 --> 00:06:44.717
  • and all the things,but you know what?
  • 00:06:44.750 --> 00:06:47.587
  • It was so that her lifewould never be the same again.
  • 00:06:47.620 --> 00:06:53.993
  • Her life would neverbe the same again.
  • 00:06:54.026 --> 00:06:55.995
  • You think about Saul andhow Saul was on
  • 00:06:56.028 --> 00:06:59.599
  • that road of Damascus.
  • 00:06:59.632 --> 00:07:01.267
  • He had persecuted Christians.
  • 00:07:01.300 --> 00:07:03.169
  • He had dragged themout of their homes.
  • 00:07:03.202 --> 00:07:05.505
  • He had killed them,murdered many of them.
  • 00:07:05.538 --> 00:07:08.374
  • He was on his plan and his plotto do damage to the Christian
  • 00:07:08.407 --> 00:07:13.513
  • church and to the people of Godand to the believers of God,
  • 00:07:13.546 --> 00:07:17.483
  • but you know what?
  • 00:07:17.517 --> 00:07:19.252
  • In Acts, God shined a light, andthat light hit Saul right in the
  • 00:07:19.285 --> 00:07:25.324
  • square of his face and said,"Saul, why are
  • 00:07:25.358 --> 00:07:30.429
  • you persecuting me?"
  • 00:07:30.463 --> 00:07:33.699
  • And that light caused Saul to betransformed from the inside out,
  • 00:07:33.733 --> 00:07:42.475
  • and his life was never thesame because he was at the
  • 00:07:42.508 --> 00:07:47.813
  • right place, and he was at theright time, and you know what?
  • 00:07:47.847 --> 00:07:52.552
  • He was delivered,and he was set free.
  • 00:07:52.585 --> 00:07:56.989
  • Now let's look backat John chapter 4.
  • 00:07:57.023 --> 00:08:00.726
  • You skip down with the womanhere at the well and as she gets
  • 00:08:00.760 --> 00:08:04.797
  • this living water.
  • 00:08:04.830 --> 00:08:08.100
  • And Jesus talks to her about herfive husbands here in verse 18,
  • 00:08:08.134 --> 00:08:14.140
  • and he--skip on down, and verse22, it says, "You Samaritans do
  • 00:08:14.173 --> 00:08:22.615
  • not know what youare worshiping.
  • 00:08:22.648 --> 00:08:25.418
  • You worship with whatyou do not comprehend.
  • 00:08:25.451 --> 00:08:28.721
  • We do know what weare worshipping.
  • 00:08:28.754 --> 00:08:31.824
  • We worship with whatknowledge of God that we have."
  • 00:08:31.857 --> 00:08:37.496
  • Now, skip further down here.
  • 00:08:37.530 --> 00:08:39.565
  • We're just gonna look at how sheencountered Jesus, in verse 27:
  • 00:08:39.599 --> 00:08:47.673
  • "Just then his disciplescame and they wondered, were
  • 00:08:47.707 --> 00:08:51.010
  • surprised, astonished to findhim talking with a woman,
  • 00:08:51.043 --> 00:08:55.314
  • a married woman.
  • 00:08:55.348 --> 00:08:57.683
  • However, not one ofthem asked him,
  • 00:08:57.717 --> 00:09:01.253
  • 'What are you inquiring about?'
  • 00:09:01.287 --> 00:09:03.122
  • or 'What do you want?'or 'Why do you speak with her?'"
  • 00:09:03.155 --> 00:09:06.926
  • This was the longestconversation that Jesus is
  • 00:09:06.959 --> 00:09:09.528
  • believed to have had with anyindividual, and it was with
  • 00:09:09.562 --> 00:09:12.398
  • a woman at the well, which wasbelieved to be 45 minutes.
  • 00:09:12.431 --> 00:09:15.968
  • "Then the woman left her waterjar and went away to the town.
  • 00:09:16.002 --> 00:09:23.142
  • And she began telling thepeople, 'Come see a man
  • 00:09:23.175 --> 00:09:30.449
  • who has told me everythingthat I ever did.
  • 00:09:30.483 --> 00:09:35.988
  • Can this be, isnot this the Christ?
  • 00:09:36.022 --> 00:09:39.725
  • Must not this be the Messiah,the Anointed One?'"
  • 00:09:39.759 --> 00:09:47.400
  • She forgot all about the jar.
  • 00:09:47.433 --> 00:09:49.235
  • She forgot all about the reasonwhy she had come to get water.
  • 00:09:49.268 --> 00:09:52.238
  • She forgot about everything.
  • 00:09:52.271 --> 00:09:54.306
  • She didn't know.
  • 00:09:54.340 --> 00:09:55.975
  • It wasn't anything that sheneeded from that water pot.
  • 00:09:56.008 --> 00:09:58.577
  • It wasn't anything that shewas thirsty for in the natural.
  • 00:09:58.611 --> 00:10:01.747
  • All of a sudden, Jesuscame in and turned
  • 00:10:01.781 --> 00:10:05.785
  • her world right-side-up.
  • 00:10:05.818 --> 00:10:08.954
  • And the Scripture says, "So thepeople left the town
  • 00:10:08.988 --> 00:10:11.857
  • and set out to go to him."
  • 00:10:11.891 --> 00:10:16.696
  • And so we see here that thosewho she was able to contact and
  • 00:10:16.729 --> 00:10:24.103
  • make a mark in, they left wherethey were, and they follow her.
  • 00:10:24.136 --> 00:10:31.210
  • And that's because she wasin the right place
  • 00:10:31.243 --> 00:10:34.947
  • at the right time.
  • 00:10:34.980 --> 00:10:39.919
  • She was at the right place atthe well, conversations at the
  • 00:10:39.952 --> 00:10:45.391
  • well, having a come-to-Jesusmeeting where he meets her,
  • 00:10:45.424 --> 00:10:52.865
  • and he encounters her, and heelevates her from being one who
  • 00:10:52.898 --> 00:10:59.505
  • was in dead relationships to nowbeing an evangelist,
  • 00:10:59.538 --> 00:11:06.011
  • now being called on a mission.
  • 00:11:06.045 --> 00:11:09.281
  • He gives her purpose.
  • 00:11:09.315 --> 00:11:10.683
  • He gives her an assignment.
  • 00:11:10.716 --> 00:11:12.551
  • He gives her areason to use her voice.
  • 00:11:12.585 --> 00:11:14.987
  • He gives her a reason to goout and to make a mark and to
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:18.524
  • influence people, and as aresult, others are changed, and
  • 00:11:18.557 --> 00:11:25.698
  • others are impacted by the graceand by the favor
  • 00:11:25.731 --> 00:11:31.237
  • that was on her life.
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:34.907
  • Look over at Luke 10, Luke'sgospel, chapter 10, and you'll
  • 00:11:34.940 --> 00:11:39.478
  • see a very similar situation,one that we've looked at in
  • 00:11:39.512 --> 00:11:43.682
  • time's past, but in light ofwhat we're looking at today,
  • 00:11:43.716 --> 00:11:47.253
  • I know we're goin' throughseveral different scenarios,
  • 00:11:47.286 --> 00:11:50.890
  • several different things, butI'm telling you, Jesus will meet
  • 00:11:50.923 --> 00:11:57.263
  • you right where you are.
  • 00:11:57.296 --> 00:12:01.167
  • His presence will find you andposition you and elevate you and
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:08.941
  • cause you to stand out and causeyou to be elevated
  • 00:12:08.974 --> 00:12:18.250
  • and preferred and to stand out.
  • 00:12:18.284 --> 00:12:22.054
  • Now let's look at thisstory here in Luke chapter 10.
  • 00:12:22.087 --> 00:12:30.796
  • Let's look at verse 38, Lukechapter 10, because we wanna
  • 00:12:30.830 --> 00:12:40.773
  • look at verse 38 through 42.
  • 00:12:42.908 --> 00:12:47.646
  • I pray this isencouraging you today.
  • 00:12:47.680 --> 00:12:52.017
  • "Now it came to pass, while theywere on their way, it occurred
  • 00:12:52.051 --> 00:12:55.054
  • that Jesus entered a certainvillage, and a woman named
  • 00:12:55.087 --> 00:12:58.858
  • Martha received andwelcomed him into her house.
  • 00:12:58.891 --> 00:13:02.361
  • And she had a sister named Mary,who had seated herself
  • 00:13:02.394 --> 00:13:08.234
  • at the Lord's feet and waslistening to his teaching.
  • 00:13:08.267 --> 00:13:14.707
  • Now, you've gotta understand,just context and setting,
  • 00:13:14.740 --> 00:13:18.244
  • that Mary--ordinarily, womenwere not allowed to be
  • 00:13:18.277 --> 00:13:23.215
  • in the company of men.
  • 00:13:23.249 --> 00:13:25.918
  • Women would have to, mostinstances, be removed and be
  • 00:13:25.951 --> 00:13:29.054
  • in a different room, and we'renot allowed to be around men.
  • 00:13:29.088 --> 00:13:34.126
  • But it was Jesus, as we justread, as we just saw, because of
  • 00:13:34.159 --> 00:13:39.932
  • him being full of love, beingfull of favor, full of grace,
  • 00:13:39.965 --> 00:13:43.903
  • full of truth, allowed Maryto be there so that she could
  • 00:13:43.936 --> 00:13:50.843
  • learn, so that she could beeducated, so she could be
  • 00:13:50.876 --> 00:13:54.647
  • informed, and she could learnwhat the men were being taught,
  • 00:13:54.680 --> 00:13:59.585
  • and she could sit there atJesus's feet and hear every word
  • 00:13:59.618 --> 00:14:06.025
  • that was coming out of his mouthbecause Jesus, obviously, didn't
  • 00:14:06.058 --> 00:14:13.332
  • think that the words that he wasspeaking were for men only, but
  • 00:14:13.365 --> 00:14:16.635
  • he allowed Mary to be in themidst, to be in his company,
  • 00:14:16.669 --> 00:14:22.574
  • to sit there and hangon every single word.
  • 00:14:22.608 --> 00:14:30.115
  • Mary was at the right place.
  • 00:14:30.149 --> 00:14:32.685
  • On the other hand, Martha wasin a different place,
  • 00:14:32.718 --> 00:14:36.522
  • different mind-set,a different goal.
  • 00:14:36.555 --> 00:14:40.659
  • Her intention was different tothe point where she got agitated
  • 00:14:40.693 --> 00:14:46.532
  • with Mary because Mary was inthere with Jesus, sitting at his
  • 00:14:46.565 --> 00:14:49.001
  • feet, but Martha was in therebeing distracted and agitated,
  • 00:14:49.034 --> 00:14:57.776
  • too busy, not carving outwhat was necessary
  • 00:14:57.810 --> 00:15:02.648
  • and most important at the time.
  • 00:15:02.681 --> 00:15:05.951
  • And so it says, "But Martha,overly occupied, Martha,
  • 00:15:05.985 --> 00:15:09.054
  • too busy, was distracted,and she was distracted
  • 00:15:09.088 --> 00:15:13.025
  • with much serving.
  • 00:15:13.058 --> 00:15:15.527
  • She came up to him and said,'Lord, is it nothing to you
  • 00:15:15.561 --> 00:15:20.632
  • that my sister has leftme to serve alone?
  • 00:15:20.666 --> 00:15:29.408
  • Tell her then--'" Mary wantedJesus to make Martha--make
  • 00:15:29.441 --> 00:15:36.915
  • Mary--excuse me, Martha wantedJesus to make Mary help her.
  • 00:15:36.949 --> 00:15:43.489
  • She says, "Makeher then help me.
  • 00:15:43.522 --> 00:15:48.293
  • You, Jesus, if youtell Mary, she'll do it."
  • 00:15:48.327 --> 00:15:53.699
  • Because, in Martha's mind, Marywas doin' the wrong thing
  • 00:15:53.732 --> 00:15:59.204
  • at the wrong time.
  • 00:15:59.238 --> 00:16:02.241
  • Martha wanted Mary to come inthere with her and be distracted
  • 00:16:02.274 --> 00:16:05.644
  • and busy and all thethings that she was doing.
  • 00:16:05.677 --> 00:16:09.748
  • She wanted hersister in there with her.
  • 00:16:09.782 --> 00:16:13.719
  • But Martha, on the otherhand--Mary, on the other hand,
  • 00:16:13.752 --> 00:16:17.022
  • recognized, "No, it'snot the time for that.
  • 00:16:17.056 --> 00:16:20.759
  • We have the Son of God,the Word, God made flesh,
  • 00:16:20.793 --> 00:16:27.466
  • and it is time, the right timefor me to sit at his feet
  • 00:16:27.499 --> 00:16:33.172
  • so I can hear his word."
  • 00:16:33.205 --> 00:16:38.577
  • "And so Martha said, 'Makeher--help her to lend a hand and
  • 00:16:38.610 --> 00:16:44.216
  • to do her part along with me.'
  • 00:16:44.249 --> 00:16:49.555
  • But the Lord repliedto her by saying,
  • 00:16:49.588 --> 00:16:52.424
  • 'Martha,Martha, you're anxious.
  • 00:16:52.458 --> 00:16:56.862
  • You're troubledabout many things.
  • 00:16:56.895 --> 00:17:01.800
  • There is need of only one orbut a few things, and Mary
  • 00:17:01.834 --> 00:17:07.973
  • has chosen the good portion.'"
  • 00:17:08.006 --> 00:17:10.976
  • Mary has chosenthe right thing to do,
  • 00:17:11.009 --> 00:17:14.880
  • to be in the rightplace at the right time.
  • 00:17:14.913 --> 00:17:18.684
  • Mary has chosenthe good portion.
  • 00:17:18.717 --> 00:17:22.354
  • Mary knew whereshe needed to be.
  • 00:17:22.387 --> 00:17:25.557
  • Martha, on the other hand,she didn't know where
  • 00:17:25.591 --> 00:17:27.759
  • she was supposed to be.
  • 00:17:27.793 --> 00:17:29.928
  • And so it says, "Mary has chosenthe good portion that which is
  • 00:17:29.962 --> 00:17:33.532
  • to her advantage, which shallnot be taken away from her."
  • 00:17:33.565 --> 00:17:43.509
  • And when you are in the rightplace at the right time,
  • 00:17:43.675 --> 00:17:47.846
  • you know what?
  • 00:17:47.880 --> 00:17:49.982
  • You will have the advantage.
  • 00:17:50.015 --> 00:17:53.785
  • You will be in the positionwhere only God can begin to
  • 00:17:53.819 --> 00:18:01.059
  • move, and you only have to giveGod the credit for what
  • 00:18:01.093 --> 00:18:05.864
  • he wants to do in your life.
  • 00:18:05.898 --> 00:18:11.937
  • I'm reminded, several yearsago, I used to go in to Tulsa,
  • 00:18:11.970 --> 00:18:15.741
  • Oklahoma, and I wouldwatch women's conferences
  • 00:18:15.774 --> 00:18:19.077
  • on television of this oneconference, Lindsay Roberts,
  • 00:18:19.111 --> 00:18:22.047
  • who's a friend of mine, andwhen we were living in our first
  • 00:18:22.080 --> 00:18:26.685
  • home, I would always just kindof tune in to what was going on
  • 00:18:26.718 --> 00:18:30.756
  • and just believe God that, oneday, I'll be able to go to this
  • 00:18:30.789 --> 00:18:33.926
  • women's conference in Tulsa, andI'll be able to be there live in
  • 00:18:33.959 --> 00:18:39.464
  • person, bless God, and thethings arranged and worked
  • 00:18:39.498 --> 00:18:46.438
  • itself out, and Iwas able to go.
  • 00:18:46.471 --> 00:18:48.974
  • I was so excited about beingthere because I'd watched it so
  • 00:18:49.007 --> 00:18:52.044
  • many years on television,and then, all of a sudden,
  • 00:18:52.077 --> 00:18:55.180
  • I was there live, in person.
  • 00:18:55.214 --> 00:18:58.283
  • I was seated way in the back,just so thankful that I could be
  • 00:18:58.317 --> 00:19:03.021
  • in the midst and see it roll outand experience the anointing
  • 00:19:03.055 --> 00:19:08.327
  • and the power of God.
  • 00:19:08.360 --> 00:19:13.131
  • Then, all of a sudden, yearsafter years of just serving and
  • 00:19:13.165 --> 00:19:16.602
  • tuning in, it's amazing how Godallowed me to be a very speaker
  • 00:19:16.635 --> 00:19:23.842
  • in that conference, and I'llnever forget how I believed God
  • 00:19:23.875 --> 00:19:29.548
  • to go to that meeting, and onceI went to that meeting,
  • 00:19:29.581 --> 00:19:33.585
  • I was just so humbled at hisgraciousness on my life.
  • 00:19:33.619 --> 00:19:39.091
  • And then, all of a sudden, byhis grace and by his favor, God
  • 00:19:39.124 --> 00:19:45.530
  • would even open doors andpresent opportunities to be a
  • 00:19:45.564 --> 00:19:51.003
  • speaker and to be a part of thatgreat conference from the past.
  • 00:19:51.036 --> 00:19:57.376
  • And so I'm telling you today,there are so many things
  • 00:19:57.409 --> 00:20:01.480
  • that God wants to do.
  • 00:20:01.513 --> 00:20:05.284
  • God can causeopportunities to find you.
  • 00:20:05.317 --> 00:20:08.387
  • He has unexpected blessingswhere you meet the right person,
  • 00:20:08.420 --> 00:20:16.295
  • or suddenly your health justbegins to spring forth, or
  • 00:20:16.328 --> 00:20:23.468
  • suddenly he causes you to meetthe right doctor, or he causes
  • 00:20:23.502 --> 00:20:28.607
  • someone to--cause you to receiveinformation on a invention or
  • 00:20:28.640 --> 00:20:36.448
  • a concept, where God shiftsthings around in your favor.
  • 00:20:36.481 --> 00:20:44.089
  • What used to be a struggle isnot a struggle anymore, and what
  • 00:20:44.122 --> 00:20:53.031
  • should've taken years to happen,happened in a fraction
  • 00:20:53.065 --> 00:20:58.470
  • of a time.
  • 00:20:58.503 --> 00:21:02.341
  • You may feel like you're stuck,that you could never accomplish
  • 00:21:02.374 --> 00:21:06.144
  • the things that maybe you havedreamed about, the visions that
  • 00:21:06.178 --> 00:21:09.548
  • you have had that maybe you'vemissed too many opportunities,
  • 00:21:09.581 --> 00:21:13.452
  • but I wanna encourage you thismorning that God is still good
  • 00:21:13.485 --> 00:21:20.559
  • and that doors can open, anddoors will open that have not
  • 00:21:20.592 --> 00:21:26.565
  • opened in the past.
  • 00:21:26.598 --> 00:21:31.036
  • Those that were against you,how of you know the favor of God
  • 00:21:31.069 --> 00:21:36.141
  • will suddenly cause them tochange their outlook, to change
  • 00:21:36.174 --> 00:21:41.847
  • their attitude, to changetheir minds against you?
  • 00:21:41.880 --> 00:21:46.685
  • We're talkin' about God.
  • 00:21:46.718 --> 00:21:48.820
  • Well, he will do things andchange the hearts of people
  • 00:21:48.854 --> 00:21:54.760
  • and cause them to see you ina different light
  • 00:21:54.793 --> 00:21:59.898
  • and to see you ina different way.
  • 00:21:59.931 --> 00:22:04.136
  • And so that's what we'retalking about this morning.
  • 00:22:04.169 --> 00:22:06.705
  • We're talking about areyou at the right place?
  • 00:22:06.738 --> 00:22:11.943
  • Are you believingGod today?
  • 00:22:11.977 --> 00:22:16.548
  • Because God hasordained it.
  • 00:22:16.581 --> 00:22:20.118
  • Being at the right place atthe right time is not limited
  • 00:22:20.152 --> 00:22:22.854
  • to where you are physically.
  • 00:22:22.888 --> 00:22:24.956
  • It's not limited toyour physical position.
  • 00:22:24.990 --> 00:22:27.092
  • You may say, "Well,Pastor Taffi, you know,
  • 00:22:27.125 --> 00:22:29.027
  • we're in quarantine.
  • 00:22:29.060 --> 00:22:30.729
  • I'm sheltering in place."
  • 00:22:30.762 --> 00:22:32.130
  • But God's notlimited by a pandemic.
  • 00:22:32.164 --> 00:22:34.332
  • God's not limited byshelterin' in place.
  • 00:22:34.366 --> 00:22:37.669
  • All you wanna do is shelterunder the mighty hand of God,
  • 00:22:37.702 --> 00:22:43.308
  • and then, as a result of youbeing under his arm and abiding
  • 00:22:43.341 --> 00:22:48.313
  • in his secret place, he'll dothe rest, and he'll cause you to
  • 00:22:48.346 --> 00:22:56.855
  • be a recipient of his favorand a recipient of his grace.
  • 00:22:56.888 --> 00:23:02.527
  • He wants you to be at the rightplace at the right time to see
  • 00:23:02.561 --> 00:23:05.497
  • his face, to hear his voice.
  • 00:23:05.530 --> 00:23:09.401
  • Being at the right place at theright time, you are outside
  • 00:23:09.434 --> 00:23:12.871
  • the ark of safety.
  • 00:23:12.904 --> 00:23:14.606
  • Perhaps you're not at the rightplace that you would like to be,
  • 00:23:14.639 --> 00:23:17.476
  • but you know what?
  • 00:23:17.509 --> 00:23:19.077
  • God is not limited.
  • 00:23:19.110 --> 00:23:21.079
  • God says, "I'm ready.
  • 00:23:21.112 --> 00:23:22.514
  • I'm taking thelimits off of you.
  • 00:23:22.547 --> 00:23:24.716
  • I'm enlarging the visionconcerning you," and he will
  • 00:23:24.749 --> 00:23:29.287
  • begin to cause a shift tocause you to move forward.
  • 00:23:29.321 --> 00:23:34.893
  • So I encourage you today tocheck the doors that have been
  • 00:23:34.926 --> 00:23:37.729
  • closed for you in the past.
  • 00:23:37.762 --> 00:23:41.766
  • Things in the past that maybewere "nos," I just believe that
  • 00:23:41.800 --> 00:23:46.771
