  • You know, it's sucha critical time,
  • 00:01:51.357 --> 00:01:53.560
  • that we are intentional aboutdepositing the Word of God into
  • 00:01:53.593 --> 00:01:57.063
  • our lives.
  • 00:01:57.096 --> 00:01:59.566
  • There's so much that's goingon, so many opportunities to
  • 00:01:59.599 --> 00:02:01.701
  • be distracted.
  • 00:02:01.734 --> 00:02:04.037
  • And you know what?
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:06.339
  • I think this is one of the mostimportant things that we can do
  • 00:02:06.372 --> 00:02:08.675
  • for our mental health, for ourspiritual health, emotional
  • 00:02:08.708 --> 00:02:11.077
  • health, social health, financialhealth, is to be able to deposit
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:14.681
  • the Word of God, the peace ofGod, the life of God, the zóé
  • 00:02:14.714 --> 00:02:19.652
  • kind of life onthe inside of us.
  • 00:02:19.686 --> 00:02:22.388
  • So, if you would, join me withprayer and let's just go
  • 00:02:22.422 --> 00:02:24.490
  • before God.
  • 00:02:24.524 --> 00:02:26.893
  • And, Father, we just comebefore you right now.
  • 00:02:26.926 --> 00:02:29.529
  • We just thank you for all thatyou've made available for us
  • 00:02:29.562 --> 00:02:31.598
  • from the foundationsof the world.
  • 00:02:31.631 --> 00:02:34.000
  • We know that it is you that welive and breathe and have
  • 00:02:34.033 --> 00:02:36.202
  • our being.
  • 00:02:36.236 --> 00:02:38.771
  • Father, we just thank youfor today, that you've made
  • 00:02:38.805 --> 00:02:40.773
  • everything available for us thatpertains to life and godliness,

  • it right now, Father.
  • 00:02:47.146 --> 00:02:49.382
  • And so, we pray for thosewho have authority over us.
  • 00:02:49.415 --> 00:02:51.651
  • We pray for our president, vicepresident, every elected--every
  • 00:02:51.684 --> 00:02:55.121
  • appointed official.
  • 00:02:55.154 --> 00:02:57.257
  • We lift them up to you nowthat we may lead a quiet and
  • 00:02:57.290 --> 00:02:59.692
  • peaceable life in allgodliness and all honesty.
  • 00:02:59.726 --> 00:03:02.462
  • You said that this is good andthis is acceptable unto you, so
  • 00:03:02.495 --> 00:03:05.865
  • we just thank you that you havethe heart of the king in your
  • 00:03:05.898 --> 00:03:09.235
  • hand to fulfill your will and noweapon formed against us
  • 00:03:09.269 --> 00:03:12.472
  • shall prosper.
  • 00:03:12.505 --> 00:03:14.874
  • And this nation belongs untoyou, and we speak peace and
  • 00:03:14.907 --> 00:03:17.877
  • grace in Jesus' name.
  • 00:03:17.910 --> 00:03:20.380
  • And all that agree said amen.
  • 00:03:20.413 --> 00:03:23.149
  • Well, I have been talking somehere about this subject of
  • 00:03:23.182 --> 00:03:26.653
  • "Right Place, Right Time," andI wanna continue on this today.
  • 00:03:26.686 --> 00:03:31.090
  • I just believe that some thingsthat have been said and things
  • 00:03:31.124 --> 00:03:34.594
  • that will be shared today willeven provide more clarity,
  • 00:03:34.627 --> 00:03:38.298
  • provide more insight, moredirection, and so who would not
  • 00:03:38.331 --> 00:03:42.802
  • want to be in the rightplace at the right time?
  • 00:03:42.835 --> 00:03:46.506
  • Who wouldn't want to experienceGod's best for their lives?
  • 00:03:46.539 --> 00:03:50.877
  • You know, this teachingis not about luck.
  • 00:03:50.910 --> 00:03:53.880
  • This teaching isn'tabout fate or chance.
  • 00:03:53.913 --> 00:03:56.983
  • This teaching is about operatingin the plan of God and knowing
  • 00:03:57.016 --> 00:04:00.753
  • God's master plan so that he canlead us from the inside out, and
  • 00:04:00.787 --> 00:04:04.857
  • we can know what it means to bewhere he wants us to be so that
  • 00:04:04.891 --> 00:04:10.330
  • we can experience his face andsee his presence on our lives in
  • 00:04:10.363 --> 00:04:14.667
  • a very tangible anda practical way.
  • 00:04:14.701 --> 00:04:17.470
  • And so, in the last two to threesessions, I think it's been,
  • 00:04:17.503 --> 00:04:21.007
  • we've looked at several biblicalcharacters, and we studied their
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:26.145
  • lives, and we've looked athow their examples have really
  • 00:04:26.179 --> 00:04:31.250
  • connected with this subject andconnected with this teaching, so
  • 00:04:31.284 --> 00:04:35.421
  • I won't, you know, go down thosesame characters that we used in
  • 00:04:35.455 --> 00:04:39.425
  • the past, but we'll move forwardin a way where we can really get
  • 00:04:39.459 --> 00:04:44.097
  • concept and look at somemore practical things.
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:47.233
  • And so, as I said last time,I was really focusing in on us
  • 00:04:47.266 --> 00:04:50.603
  • opening ourselves up to Godpossibilities, so I want you
  • 00:04:50.636 --> 00:04:54.107
  • right now to just lean in withyour faith and say, "I'm opening
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:58.077
  • myself up to God possibilities."
  • 00:04:58.111 --> 00:05:01.748
  • Because if we don'topen ourselves up to God
  • 00:05:01.781 --> 00:05:04.217
  • possibilities, we'll continueto see things as impossible,
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:07.720
  • because with man, the Scripturesays, things are impossible,
  • 00:05:07.754 --> 00:05:11.224
  • with the doctors.
  • 00:05:11.257 --> 00:05:13.826
  • Things are impossible withthe creditors, you know?
  • 00:05:13.860 --> 00:05:16.562
  • Things are impossible when itcomes to things going on in the
  • 00:05:16.596 --> 00:05:20.032
  • physical body, but thank God,well, he has declared for us and
  • 00:05:20.066 --> 00:05:25.071
  • through his Word that allthings are possible through him.
  • 00:05:25.104 --> 00:05:28.274
  • And so, that's what we wanna do.
  • 00:05:28.307 --> 00:05:30.510
  • We wanna dissolve the negativelimitations, the unbelief that
  • 00:05:30.543 --> 00:05:35.148
  • keeps us in the place of fear, aplace of not experiencing God's
  • 00:05:35.181 --> 00:05:41.053
  • best, and to create a newnarrative, to tell a new story,
  • 00:05:41.087 --> 00:05:45.458
  • and to begin to rewrite whatGod's destiny is for our life.
  • 00:05:45.491 --> 00:05:51.431
  • And so, we know that thesethings are so very, very, very
  • 00:05:51.464 --> 00:05:55.701
  • important for us, and so let'sbegin today in the book of
  • 00:05:55.735 --> 00:06:01.474
  • Ecclesiastes chapter 9.
  • 00:06:01.507 --> 00:06:05.978
  • Ecclesiastes chapter 9, verse11, and this is where we get
  • 00:06:06.012 --> 00:06:09.615
  • this subject "Right Place,Right Time," "Right Place, Right
  • 00:06:09.649 --> 00:06:15.254
  • Time," because it mentionsthe use of the word
  • 00:06:15.288 --> 00:06:20.693
  • "qarah," Q-A-R-A-H.
  • 00:06:20.726 --> 00:06:23.429
  • Q-A-R-A-H is a Hebrew word whichis used in Ecclesiastes chapter
  • 00:06:23.463 --> 00:06:28.234
  • 9, verse 11, and it is theHebrew word for the English word
  • 00:06:28.267 --> 00:06:34.407
  • "happeneth," and so let's lookat--let's look at what it says
  • 00:06:34.440 --> 00:06:39.378
  • here in the King James Version.
  • 00:06:39.412 --> 00:06:43.382
  • Let's look at the King JamesVersion because I know that is
  • 00:06:43.416 --> 00:06:47.053
  • one of the original text.
  • 00:06:47.086 --> 00:06:50.356
  • So, it says in verse 11, "Ireturned, and saw under the sun,
  • 00:06:50.389 --> 00:06:53.960
  • that the race is not to theswift, nor the battle to the
  • 00:06:53.993 --> 00:06:56.996
  • strong, nor yet bread to thewise, nor yet riches to men of
  • 00:06:57.029 --> 00:07:02.768
  • understanding, nor yet favorto men of skill; but time and
  • 00:07:02.802 --> 00:07:10.943
  • chance happeneth to them all."
  • 00:07:10.977 --> 00:07:16.048
  • Time and chance, theScripture says here.
  • 00:07:16.082 --> 00:07:19.585
  • Happeneth is the word "qarah,"Q-A-R-A-H, in the Hebrew, which
  • 00:07:19.619 --> 00:07:25.424
  • means right placeand right time.
  • 00:07:25.458 --> 00:07:30.496
  • So, this word meansGod appointments.
  • 00:07:30.530 --> 00:07:34.467
  • In other words, things that areorchestrated by God Almighty.
  • 00:07:34.500 --> 00:07:39.472
  • God sets up appointments forus and for those who he loves.
  • 00:07:39.505 --> 00:07:44.677
  • That word in the Hebrewmeans to encounter.
  • 00:07:44.710 --> 00:07:48.881
  • Happeneth.
  • 00:07:48.915 --> 00:07:51.450
  • That word means to encounter, tomeet, to befall, happen, come to
  • 00:07:51.484 --> 00:07:57.256
  • encounter, and it alsomeans to be present.
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:08:03.529
  • And so, when we look at thisword "happenings" here in the
  • 00:08:03.563 --> 00:08:09.068
  • Hebrew, which is the number7136, we understand that we're
  • 00:08:09.101 --> 00:08:13.773
  • talking about God happenings.
  • 00:08:13.806 --> 00:08:16.776
  • God happenings are availablefor each and every one of his
  • 00:08:16.809 --> 00:08:20.680
  • children and as you become hischild he makes opportunities
  • 00:08:20.713 --> 00:08:25.885
  • that are orchestrated by him,orchestrated to experience his
  • 00:08:25.918 --> 00:08:31.023
  • favor, opportunities where hisgrace will shine upon you and
  • 00:08:31.057 --> 00:08:35.428
  • cause you to experiencethe best for your life.
  • 00:08:35.461 --> 00:08:39.899
  • And, you know, it's not by luck.
  • 00:08:39.932 --> 00:08:43.202
  • It's not by fate.
  • 00:08:43.235 --> 00:08:45.638
  • It's not by chance.
  • 00:08:45.671 --> 00:08:48.441
  • It's by the grace of God.
  • 00:08:48.474 --> 00:08:50.977
  • It's by his grace coming on yourlife, and he causes things to
  • 00:08:51.010 --> 00:08:53.813
  • happen on your behalf.
  • 00:08:53.846 --> 00:08:56.682
  • I'm talking about where Godintervenes and his power becomes
  • 00:08:56.716 --> 00:09:00.953
  • evident in your life, to thepoint that you have an encounter
  • 00:09:00.987 --> 00:09:05.224
  • and you know that it's nothingbut the grace of God that gives
  • 00:09:05.257 --> 00:09:10.296
  • credit to what is takingplace in a person's life.
  • 00:09:10.329 --> 00:09:15.067
  • And so, this teaching, Ipray that you'll just be more
  • 00:09:15.101 --> 00:09:19.071
  • conscientious and morecognizant of God happenings.
  • 00:09:19.105 --> 00:09:25.077
  • He says we have this opportunityto experience these God
  • 00:09:25.111 --> 00:09:29.348
  • happenings, these God encountersas we are led by the Spirit of
  • 00:09:29.382 --> 00:09:33.619
  • God and we allow our steps tobe ordered and our steps to be
  • 00:09:33.653 --> 00:09:39.291
  • directed by him, so we have tomake up in our mind that these
  • 00:09:39.325 --> 00:09:45.831
  • God moments have to be seized.
  • 00:09:45.865 --> 00:09:49.035
  • We have to grab them.
  • 00:09:49.068 --> 00:09:52.004
  • Grace makes, and faith takes.
  • 00:09:52.038 --> 00:09:54.974
  • We seize what grace hasmade available for us.
  • 00:09:55.007 --> 00:09:58.711
  • I mentioned on the last time howRuth had a moment where she sees
  • 00:09:58.744 --> 00:10:02.882
  • the opportunity, and there weretimes in Jesus's life, in his
  • 00:10:02.915 --> 00:10:08.554
  • ministry, where there wereappointments, and as a result
  • 00:10:08.587 --> 00:10:12.792
  • people's lives were changed.
  • 00:10:12.825 --> 00:10:15.961
  • And so, these are God happeningsthat I believe that are
  • 00:10:15.995 --> 00:10:18.397
  • available to take place inyour life, in your job, in your
  • 00:10:18.431 --> 00:10:22.635
  • family, in your business.
  • 00:10:22.668 --> 00:10:26.772
  • God happenings are availablefor each and every one of us.
  • 00:10:26.806 --> 00:10:31.477
  • He says, "They'reavailable for them all."
  • 00:10:31.510 --> 00:10:34.613
  • And so, when we understand thesource and we understand that
  • 00:10:34.647 --> 00:10:38.951
  • God is the reason why we livethis life and we wanna discover
  • 00:10:38.984 --> 00:10:44.123
  • his plan for our lives, thenour lives will begin to be
  • 00:10:44.156 --> 00:10:47.993
  • orchestrated by him, and ourminds will be in line with
  • 00:10:48.027 --> 00:10:53.866
  • taking steps anddirections for him.
  • 00:10:53.899 --> 00:10:58.204
  • But, you know, we have tounderstand that these things
  • 00:10:58.237 --> 00:11:01.674
  • have to be intentionalin our life.
  • 00:11:01.707 --> 00:11:04.176
  • Things don't just happen, butwhen we begin to recognize that
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:08.714
  • we're going to depend on God andthat we're gonna allow his steps
  • 00:11:08.748 --> 00:11:12.618
  • to be the direction for ourlives, then things will begin to
  • 00:11:12.651 --> 00:11:16.889
  • come in line and come to pass.
  • 00:11:16.922 --> 00:11:20.159
  • So, you have to make up in yourmind and you have to decide that
  • 00:11:20.192 --> 00:11:23.629
  • you're going to just put asideall negative, as I said earlier,
  • 00:11:23.662 --> 00:11:27.600
  • limiting beliefs about whereyou're gonna live, where you
  • 00:11:27.633 --> 00:11:30.803
  • work, kind of opportunitiesthat are available, and to open
  • 00:11:30.836 --> 00:11:33.839
  • yourself up to God possibility.
  • 00:11:33.873 --> 00:11:37.309
  • Say that with me again, "I openmyself to God possibilities."
  • 00:11:37.343 --> 00:11:43.249
  • And I just agree with youthat the perfect, satisfying
  • 00:11:43.282 --> 00:11:50.055
  • situations will come into yourlife and to manifest in
  • 00:11:50.089 --> 00:11:55.327
  • your life.
  • 00:11:55.361 --> 00:11:58.030
  • Now, let's look at what thissays in Proverbs chapter 16,
  • 00:11:58.063 --> 00:12:01.433
  • verse 9.
  • 00:12:01.467 --> 00:12:03.669
  • The book of Proverbs chapter 16.
  • 00:12:03.702 --> 00:12:06.839
  • We wanna look at a coupleof translations here.
  • 00:12:06.872 --> 00:12:09.742
  • I mean, I brought The Message.
  • 00:12:09.775 --> 00:12:12.912
  • We've got the NLT.
  • 00:12:12.945 --> 00:12:16.348
  • I've got my Mirror Bible.
  • 00:12:16.382 --> 00:12:19.051
  • We got so many swords up here,and we are ready for war, and we
  • 00:12:19.084 --> 00:12:23.255
  • are ready to operate in thebest that God has for our lives.
  • 00:12:23.289 --> 00:12:29.128
  • And so, we can just look atthe New International Version.
  • 00:12:29.161 --> 00:12:34.767
  • So, it says, "In their heartshumans plan their course, but
  • 00:12:34.800 --> 00:12:42.842
  • the Lord establishestheir steps."
  • 00:12:42.875 --> 00:12:47.346
  • I'll read that again.
  • 00:12:47.379 --> 00:12:50.049
  • "In their hearts--"
  • 00:12:50.082 --> 00:12:52.585
  • In our heart of hearts we planour course for our career, for
  • 00:12:52.618 --> 00:12:55.120
  • our family, for what we're goingto do, where we're gonna live,
  • 00:12:55.154 --> 00:12:58.090
  • how we're gonna live, but hesays the Lord, he establishes
  • 00:12:58.123 --> 00:13:03.395
  • our steps.
  • 00:13:03.429 --> 00:13:06.699
  • So, regardless of how muchplanning that we do, you
  • 00:13:06.732 --> 00:13:09.568
  • know what?
  • 00:13:09.602 --> 00:13:11.737
  • It still goes back to theLord establishing your steps.
  • 00:13:11.770 --> 00:13:15.107
  • Look at what it says herein The Message translation.
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:18.410
  • Look at it from TheMessage version.
  • 00:13:18.444 --> 00:13:21.780
  • "We plan the waywe want to live--"
  • 00:13:21.814 --> 00:13:26.418
  • And we do that.
  • 00:13:26.452 --> 00:13:28.921
  • "We plan the way we want tolive, but only God makes us able
  • 00:13:28.954 --> 00:13:35.427
  • to live it."
  • 00:13:35.461 --> 00:13:38.264
  • Only God makes us havethe ability to live.
  • 00:13:38.297 --> 00:13:45.271
  • So, you can do all the planningand all the directives and so
  • 00:13:45.304 --> 00:13:51.744
  • forth and so on,but you know what?
  • 00:13:51.777 --> 00:13:54.546
  • It still goes back to God, whoenables us to have breath, life,
  • 00:13:54.580 --> 00:14:00.586
  • and the ability to live it.
  • 00:14:00.619 --> 00:14:04.523
  • Now, look at thiseasy-reading version.
  • 00:14:04.556 --> 00:14:07.026
  • "People can plan whatthey want to do--"
  • 00:14:07.059 --> 00:14:10.129
  • And we do.
  • 00:14:10.162 --> 00:14:12.598
  • "People can plan what they wantto do, but it is the Lord who
  • 00:14:12.631 --> 00:14:15.834
  • guides their steps."
  • 00:14:15.868 --> 00:14:19.939
  • And so, I read that to say thatwe are still going to have to
  • 00:14:19.972 --> 00:14:25.544
  • recognize that it all goes backto his direction and what he has
  • 00:14:25.577 --> 00:14:30.516
  • arranged for us from thefoundations of the world, and so
  • 00:14:30.549 --> 00:14:38.891
  • let's look at some things hereas we open ourselves up to
  • 00:14:38.924 --> 00:14:42.027
  • God possibilities.
  • 00:14:42.061 --> 00:14:44.363
  • Look over at Matthewchapter 19, verse 26.
  • 00:14:44.396 --> 00:14:47.866
  • Matthew 19:26 in theNew Living Translation.
  • 00:14:47.900 --> 00:14:52.771
  • I like this Scripture becauseyou've got to understand that
  • 00:14:52.805 --> 00:14:56.675
  • there are so many limitationsin the world today on your
  • 00:14:56.709 --> 00:15:01.680
  • financial affairs, limitationson your job, perhaps how much
  • 00:15:01.714 --> 00:15:07.286
  • you can make or how much ofa career jump you can make in
  • 00:15:07.319 --> 00:15:13.726
  • terms of your career path.
  • 00:15:13.759 --> 00:15:16.962
  • There may be limitations just,you know, of where you came from
  • 00:15:16.996 --> 00:15:22.001
  • and how you can live andwhat type of neighborhood or
  • 00:15:22.034 --> 00:15:26.338
  • community that you qualify tolive in, but you know what?
  • 00:15:26.372 --> 00:15:32.378
  • God, he has a way of dealingwith all of that, and so look at
  • 00:15:32.411 --> 00:15:37.216
  • what it says here.
  • 00:15:37.249 --> 00:15:40.219
  • "Jesus looked at them intentlyand said, 'Humanly speaking, it
  • 00:15:40.252 --> 00:15:47.426
  • is impossible.
  • 00:15:47.459 --> 00:15:51.463
  • But with God everythingis possible.'"
  • 00:15:51.497 --> 00:15:57.803
  • So, like I said earlier, you,child of God, must open yourself
  • 00:15:57.836 --> 00:16:03.175
  • to all of God's possibilities.
  • 00:16:03.208 --> 00:16:08.013
  • Everything is possible with God,and so we, today, we make up in
  • 00:16:08.047 --> 00:16:14.219
  • our minds that we open ourselvesup to God possibilities.
  • 00:16:14.253 --> 00:16:19.691
  • Look at what it says in TheMessage and the ERV translation.
  • 00:16:19.725 --> 00:16:24.096
  • The Message says, "Jesus lookedhard at them and said, 'No
  • 00:16:24.129 --> 00:16:27.766
  • chance at all if you thinkyou can pull it off yourself.
  • 00:16:27.800 --> 00:16:35.741
  • Every chance in the world if youtrust God to do it,'" because,
  • 00:16:35.774 --> 00:16:42.047
  • you know, we think in this lifethat we can pull it all
  • 00:16:42.081 --> 00:16:45.150
  • off ourselves.
  • 00:16:45.184 --> 00:16:48.353
  • We think that we can make allthese decisions and we can come
  • 00:16:48.387 --> 00:16:51.824
  • up with this great plan, andhow we're gonna accomplish this
  • 00:16:51.857 --> 00:16:57.329
  • thing in 30 days, and we'regonna accomplish this in 90
  • 00:16:57.362 --> 00:17:00.399
  • days, and after 6 months we'regonna do this, and after 12
  • 00:17:00.432 --> 00:17:03.802
  • months we're gonna be here.
  • 00:17:03.836 --> 00:17:06.538
  • "After three years,I'll be here."
  • 00:17:06.572 --> 00:17:09.475
  • "After five years,we'll be here."
  • 00:17:09.508 --> 00:17:12.211
  • So, he says you think that youcan do all these things, but you
  • 00:17:12.244 --> 00:17:16.782
  • know what?
  • 00:17:16.815 --> 00:17:19.284
  • God can do more.
  • 00:17:19.318 --> 00:17:21.854
  • God can do so much more.
  • 00:17:21.887 --> 00:17:25.023
  • And so, the other translationsays, "This is something that
  • 00:17:25.057 --> 00:17:28.026
  • people cannot do.
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:30.662
  • But God can do anything."
  • 00:17:30.696 --> 00:17:33.198
  • And I believe that for yourlife, that God can do anything
  • 00:17:33.232 --> 00:17:35.868
  • for your life, so I want you tomake up your mind today that God
  • 00:17:35.901 --> 00:17:39.471
  • is your unfailing,unlimited source of supply.
  • 00:17:39.505 --> 00:17:44.710
  • I want you to be in agreementthat, you know, your financial
  • 00:17:44.743 --> 00:17:48.647
  • portfolio, your financialaffairs, your domestic affairs,
  • 00:17:48.680 --> 00:17:54.319
  • everything concerning theaffairs of your life, that they
  • 00:17:54.353 --> 00:17:58.557
  • will be overtaken bythe blessings of God.
  • 00:17:58.590 --> 00:18:02.060
  • And open yourself upto God possibilities.
  • 00:18:02.094 --> 00:18:05.097
  • Open yourself up beyondwhat your employer says.
  • 00:18:05.130 --> 00:18:09.268
  • Open yourself up to beyond whatthe doctor says, beyond what the
  • 00:18:09.301 --> 00:18:14.339
  • creditor said.
  • 00:18:14.373 --> 00:18:16.975
  • You know, when Creflo and Ifirst got married and, you know,
  • 00:18:17.009 --> 00:18:20.012
  • we were in our little apartmentand we started talking about
  • 00:18:20.045 --> 00:18:23.615
  • moving from the apartment andwanting to see what else we
  • 00:18:23.649 --> 00:18:29.288
  • could purchase and move intoand started thinking about, you
  • 00:18:29.321 --> 00:18:35.194
  • know, townhouse, a condo, andwhat we could purchase or--we
  • 00:18:35.227 --> 00:18:39.765
  • had all rentedfurniture at the time.
  • 00:18:39.798 --> 00:18:42.801
  • Everything was rented.
  • 00:18:42.834 --> 00:18:45.170
  • We were renting the apartment.
  • 00:18:45.204 --> 00:18:46.939
  • We were renting our furniture.
  • 00:18:46.972 --> 00:18:49.074
  • We were renting our appliances.
  • 00:18:49.107 --> 00:18:51.009
  • We were, you know,renting our cars.
  • 00:18:51.043 --> 00:18:53.178
  • We were renting everything, andso you have to think, "Okay,
  • 00:18:53.212 --> 00:18:55.581
  • well, is it possible that wecannot continue to be renters
  • 00:18:55.614 --> 00:18:59.518
  • but we could possibly be owners?
  • 00:18:59.551 --> 00:19:03.088
  • Where we could own our place.
  • 00:19:03.121 --> 00:19:05.891
  • We could purchase a place."
  • 00:19:05.924 --> 00:19:08.694
  • And you know what?
  • 00:19:08.727 --> 00:19:10.729
  • They told us--they said, "Youguys will never be able to
  • 00:19:10.762 --> 00:19:13.098
  • purchase or own anything,because," he said, "you guys are
  • 00:19:13.131 --> 00:19:15.601
  • high users of credit."
  • 00:19:15.634 --> 00:19:18.003
  • I didn't know what that was.
  • 00:19:18.036 --> 00:19:20.138
  • Because we were dependent uponcredit, we had so much credit
  • 00:19:20.172 --> 00:19:22.608
  • that we were not qualifyingto be able to own or purchase
  • 00:19:22.641 --> 00:19:28.280
  • anything, and so we just stoodon the Word of God, because I'll
  • 00:19:28.313 --> 00:19:33.352
  • never forget that creditor.
  • 00:19:33.385 --> 00:19:36.488
  • She says, "It willnever happen to you.
  • 00:19:36.521 --> 00:19:38.890
  • It will never happen for you."
  • 00:19:38.924 --> 00:19:41.159
  • But you know what?
  • 00:19:41.193 --> 00:19:43.228
  • We didn't think in line withwhat she said, because we relied
  • 00:19:43.262 --> 00:19:45.163
  • on that Scripture that saidthat, you know, with men things
  • 00:19:45.197 --> 00:19:47.566
  • are possible--impossible, youknow, because of our credit
  • 00:19:47.599 --> 00:19:52.671
  • score and because of the amountof credit that we had at that
  • 00:19:52.704 --> 00:19:56.008
  • time, but with God, he'll causethe favor to come on our life.
  • 00:19:56.041 --> 00:20:03.448
  • They said we were denied forthe loan, but you know what?
  • 00:20:03.482 --> 00:20:06.285
  • You just allow God to be thefinal authority in your life.
  • 00:20:06.318 --> 00:20:11.390
  • Allow him to be the unlimitedsource of your supply.
  • 00:20:11.423 --> 00:20:15.994
  • Look at what it says herein Deuteronomy 28, verse 12.
  • 00:20:16.028 --> 00:20:20.299
  • Turn over toDeuteronomy in the NIV.
  • 00:20:20.332 --> 00:20:24.803
  • Deuteronomy 28, verse 12.
  • 00:20:24.836 --> 00:20:29.708
  • Or maybe this is verse 2.
  • 00:20:29.741 --> 00:20:33.211
  • Let's look at verse 2 first.
  • 00:20:33.245 --> 00:20:35.447
  • I think that's verse 2.
  • 00:20:35.480 --> 00:20:38.283
  • "All these blessings will comeon you and over--and accompany
  • 00:20:38.317 --> 00:20:43.455
  • you if you obeythe Lord your God."
  • 00:20:43.488 --> 00:20:49.628
  • And that's what happens.
  • 00:20:49.661 --> 00:20:52.164
  • When we receive Jesus as ourLord and as our Savior and we
  • 00:20:52.197 --> 00:20:54.933
  • get into covenant with God,Abraham's blessings come
  • 00:20:54.966 --> 00:20:58.570
  • over us.
  • 00:20:58.603 --> 00:21:01.340
  • They accompany us, and theyovertake us, so it doesn't
  • 00:21:01.373 --> 00:21:04.876
  • matter what that womansaid at the bank.
  • 00:21:04.910 --> 00:21:07.412
  • She was just doing her job andtelling us based on the criteria
  • 00:21:07.446 --> 00:21:10.615
  • and the qualifications or whatwas on paper, but you know what?
  • 00:21:10.649 --> 00:21:14.820
  • You know what?
  • 00:21:14.853 --> 00:21:17.322
  • We knew God.
  • 00:21:17.356 --> 00:21:19.558
  • She didn't havethe final say-so.
  • 00:21:19.591 --> 00:21:21.626
  • She was supposed to give thefacts, but you know what?
  • 00:21:21.660 --> 00:21:23.995
  • God has the truth, and God wasable to cause his blessings to
  • 00:21:24.029 --> 00:21:28.734
  • come on us and cause us toexperience his goodness, so you
  • 00:21:28.767 --> 00:21:35.707
  • have to make up in your mindthat you are well able to
  • 00:21:35.741 --> 00:21:39.344
  • possess all that Godhas provided for you.
  • 00:21:39.378 --> 00:21:43.982
  • And that the Scripture saysthat he opens unto us his good
  • 00:21:44.015 --> 00:21:47.986
  • treasure, and he blesses thework of your hand, and he causes
  • 00:21:48.019 --> 00:21:52.457
  • you to experience his good.
  • 00:21:52.491 --> 00:21:56.228
  • And so, when we look at thesethings, we understand that all
  • 00:21:56.261 --> 00:22:00.031
  • hindrances and obstacles to ourfinancial prosperity will
  • 00:22:00.065 --> 00:22:05.103
  • be dissolved.
  • 00:22:05.137 --> 00:22:08.440
  • Just make up in your mind thatthings that were trying to block
  • 00:22:08.473 --> 00:22:11.176
  • you, things that may be in yourway, hurdles, obstacles, God
  • 00:22:11.209 --> 00:22:16.715
  • will move them out of the way,just like God did with
  • 00:22:16.748 --> 00:22:20.519
  • our situation.
  • 00:22:20.552 --> 00:22:23.622
  • You know, the things that werekeeping us from being qualified,
  • 00:22:23.655 --> 00:22:27.159
  • God just moved it and said, "I'mgonna bless my children and give
  • 00:22:27.192 --> 00:22:32.130
  • them the desiresof their heart," amen.
  • 00:22:32.164 --> 00:22:37.536
  • Look over at Ephesians chapter4, verse 23 in the Easy-Reading
  • 00:22:37.569 --> 00:22:43.642
  • Version.
  • 00:22:43.675 --> 00:22:45.977

  • 00:23:21.813 --> 00:23:25.083
  • And so, we have to look at someScriptures here, and we're gonna
  • 00:23:25.116 --> 00:23:30.589
  • look at an example over inJohn 21 when we finish, but the
  • 00:23:30.622 --> 00:23:34.426
  • Scripture says here, "You mustbe made new in your hearts and
