  • 00:10:14.210 --> 00:10:15.150
  • JUST START THANKING GOD
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:17.100
  • FOR IT BEFORE YOU GET IT.
  • 00:10:17.100 --> 00:10:19.070
  • START PREPARING FOR IT.
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:21.200
  • INSTEAD OF LETTING THE ENEMY
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:22.280
  • FILL YOU WITH THE WHAT-IFS
  • 00:10:22.280 --> 00:10:24.040
  • OF WORRY, LET THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:26.060

  • WHEN IT'S HEAR,
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:30.140
  • IT'LL BE A TESTIMONY.
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:31.280
  • WHEN IT'S TURNED AROUND,
  • 00:10:31.280 --> 00:10:33.010
  • I'LL LET GOD USE ME
  • 00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:34.110
  • TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS.
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:35.160
  • WHEN IT'S COME TO PASS,
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:36.240
  • GOD AND I WILL HAVE

  • AS I BITE INTO IT.
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.010
  • I CAN SEE THE GREASE
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:50.050
  • FROM THE PEPPERONI

  • FOR THE BETTER.
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:08.240
  • FIRST PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:09.180
  • PRAYING TO GET RESULTS
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:11.250
  • IS GETTING A PROMISE.

  • THIS IS THE GUY WHO JUST CALLED
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:24.290

  • HE'S BUYING INTO IT.
  • 00:12:26.100 --> 00:12:28.070
  • HE'S LIKE, "AH, YEAH, YEAH,

  • HE RUNS OUT TOWARD THE SEA.
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.030
  • MAN, HE'S RUNNING OUT,
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:35.030
  • RUNNING OUT, RUNNING OUT.
  • 00:12:35.030 --> 00:12:35.220
  • HE'S FULLY LOOKING, LOOKING,
  • 00:12:35.220 --> 00:12:36.270
  • LOOKING, LOOKING, LOOKING,

  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:47.100
  • "AH, MMM.

  • WE DON'T SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:04.230
  • "OH, PSHH.
  • 00:13:04.230 --> 00:13:06.130

  • "SORRY, BOSS.
  • 00:13:11.290 --> 00:13:13.160

  • NOT QUITE AS FAST
  • 00:13:28.240 --> 00:13:29.130
  • AS THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:30.110
  • MAYBE ELIJAH
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:31.170
  • GAVE HIM A LITTLE PEP TALK.
  • 00:13:31.170 --> 00:13:32.160
  • "YOU KNOW, COME ON, COME ON.

  • AND HE, "OKAY, OKAY."
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:41.130
  • AND HE RAN WITH A JOG THIS TIME.
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:48.030
  • STILL NOTHING.
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:51.060
  • COME BACK.

  • IN ORDER TO SIGNIFY THE END
  • 00:15:32.070 --> 00:15:34.150

  • QUIT LOOKING NOW,
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:47.070
  • QUIT PRAISING NOW,
  • 00:15:47.070 --> 00:15:48.110
  • QUIT MARCHING NOW.
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:50.220
  • HERE IN LIES
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:51.290
  • THE MOST DIFFICULT PART
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:53.270
  • OF EVERY PRAYER BATTLE.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.060
  • IT'S WHY THE BIBLE CALLS IT
  • 00:15:55.060 --> 00:15:56.290
  • THE FIGHT OF FAITH.
  • 00:15:56.290 --> 00:15:59.070
  • NOT THE EASE OF FAITH,
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:03.140
  • THE FIGHT OF FAITH.
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:04.210
  • LET ME GIVE YOU THE SKINNY,
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.090
  • THE 4-1-1 ON PRAYER.
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:07.170
  • THERE IS NO VICTORIES
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:09.000
  • WITHOUT PERSISTENCE.
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:10.250
  • THE PROMISES OF GOD
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:13.160
  • ARE INHERITED
  • 00:16:13.160 --> 00:16:15.190
  • NOT JUST THROUGH FAITH.
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:16.270
  • THROUGH FAITH AND PATIENCE,
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:21.040
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS.
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:22.090
  • IT'S THE OLD WORD THROUGH
  • 00:16:22.130 --> 00:16:25.130
  • FAITH AND ENDURANCE
  • 00:16:25.130 --> 00:16:26.270
  • WHICH WAS ONE OF
  • 00:16:26.270 --> 00:16:27.130
  • THE SUPREME VIRTUES.
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.200
  • THE RACE IS NOT ALWAYS
  • 00:16:28.200 --> 00:16:30.220
  • TO THE SWIFT, THE BATTLE IS NOT
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:33.030
  • ALWAYS TO THE STRONG,
  • 00:16:33.030 --> 00:16:34.020
  • BUT, RATHER, IT IS
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:34.240
  • TO THE PERSISTENT.
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:35.290
  • AND THE PERSISTENT --
  • 00:16:35.290 --> 00:16:38.040
  • AND PERSISTENCE HAS NOTHING
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:39.070
  • TO DO WITH GETTING GOD TO MOVE.
  • 00:16:43.080 --> 00:16:46.080
  • LET ME SAY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.090
  • PERSISTENCE HAS NOTHING TO DO
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:50.290
  • WITH GETTING GOD TO MOVE.
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:54.160
  • JESUS TOLD THE PARABLE.
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:55.180
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:17:01.170
  • LUKE 18:1, "THEN HE SPOKE
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:02.060
  • A PARABLE TO THEM THAT MEANT
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:03.280
  • ALWAYS TO PRAY, ALWAYS, ALWAYS
  • 00:17:03.280 --> 00:17:06.090
  • TO PRAY AND NOT LOSE HEART."
  • 00:17:07.050 --> 00:17:10.050
  • SAYING THERE WAS A CERTAIN CITY
  • 00:17:10.050 --> 00:17:11.270
  • -- IN A CERTAIN CITY
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:12.190
  • THERE WAS A JUDGE WHO DID NOT
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:13.220
  • FEAR GOD NOR REGARD MAN.
  • 00:17:13.290 --> 00:17:16.290
  • "NOW THERE WAS A WIDOW
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:17.170
  • IN THAT CITY AND SHE CAME
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:18.210
  • TO HIM SAYING, 'GET JUSTICE
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:20.050
  • FOR ME FOR MY ADVERSARY.'
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.170
  • AND HE WOULD NOT FOR AWHILE BUT
  • 00:17:21.200 --> 00:17:24.200
  • AFTER HE SAID WITHIN HIMSELF,
  • 00:17:24.200 --> 00:17:25.250
  • 'THOUGH I DO NOT FEAR GOD
  • 00:17:25.250 --> 00:17:28.020
  • NOR REGARD MAN, YET BECAUSE
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:30.000
  • THIS WIDOW TROUBLES ME
  • 00:17:30.000 --> 00:17:31.160
  • I WILL AVENGE HER LESS BY
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:33.180
  • HER CONTINUAL COMING.
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:34.250
  • SHE WEARIES ME.' "
  • 00:17:34.250 --> 00:17:36.210
  • THIS IS NOT A PARABLE
  • 00:17:36.210 --> 00:17:38.120
  • ABOUT HOW YOU AND I
  • 00:17:38.120 --> 00:17:39.090
  • ARE SUPPOSED TO RELATE TO GOD.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:40.270
  • AFTER ALL, IF IT WAS JESUS
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:43.110
  • DIDN'T POSTURE GOD IN A VERY
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:45.090
  • GOOD LIGHT, NOW, DID HE?
  • 00:17:45.090 --> 00:17:46.240
  • HE SAID THERE WAS
  • 00:17:46.240 --> 00:17:48.030
  • AN UNJUST JUDGE.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:51.060
  • IS THAT GOD?
  • 00:17:51.060 --> 00:17:52.190
  • IS GOD AN UNJUST JUDGE?
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:53.210
  • WHO DIDN'T REGARD MAN --
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:56.070
  • WHO DIDN'T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.220
  • IS THAT GOD?
  • 00:17:57.220 --> 00:17:58.210
  • NOR REGARD GOD.
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:01.230
  • SO GOD DIDN'T REGARD HIMSELF?
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:03.050
  • GOD DIDN'T CARE ABOUT
  • 00:18:03.050 --> 00:18:04.290
  • PEOPLE, RIGHT?
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:06.210
  • GOD WAS UNJUST.
  • 00:18:06.210 --> 00:18:07.160
  • IS THIS A PARABLE ABOUT
  • 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:08.170
  • HOW YOU AND I SHOULD RELATE
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:09.220
  • TO GOD?
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:11.010
  • NO.
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:12.160
  • YET EVERYBODY ALWAYS SAYS
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:13.280
  • THAT THE REASON WHY WE NEED
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:15.210
  • TO BE PERSISTENT IS BECAUSE
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:17.250
  • SOMEHOW SOMEWAY WE HAVE
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:19.190
  • TO WEARY GOD DOWN AND TWIST
  • 00:18:19.190 --> 00:18:21.170
  • GOD'S ARM INTO ANSWERING
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:23.040
  • OUR PRAYERS.
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:23.240
  • BUT THIS IS A PARABLE ABOUT
  • 00:18:23.240 --> 00:18:26.040
  • HOW WE ARE SUPPOSED
  • 00:18:26.040 --> 00:18:27.180
  • TO DEFEAT THE DEVIL.
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:30.080
  • THIS IS A PARABLE OF HOW WE
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:32.110
  • ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOSEN
  • 00:18:32.110 --> 00:18:33.260
  • THE DEVIL'S GRIP ON THE PROMISE
  • 00:18:33.260 --> 00:18:35.250
  • THAT IS BEING BLOCKED
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.100
  • FROM GETTING INTO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.210
  • AND THE WAY YOU DO THE DEVIL
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:40.230
  • IS YOU KEEP PRAYING AND
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:43.070
  • KEEP PRAYING AND KEEP STANDING
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:44.110
  • AND KEEP GROWING AND
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:46.170
  • KEEP HITTING AND
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:47.050
  • KEEP STRIKING 'CAUSE EVENTUALLY
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:50.080
  • THE DEVIL WILL LOSE HIS GRIP.
  • 00:18:50.080 --> 00:18:51.260
  • EVENTUALLY, THE DEVIL WILL LOSE
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:54.170
  • -- "LOOK AGAIN," ELIJAH SAID.
  • 00:18:54.170 --> 00:18:56.220
  • AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:18:57.090
  • AND AGAIN LIKE A BATTERING RAM
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:59.020
  • AGAINST THE FORCES OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:01.130
  • PERSISTENCE PRIES THE ENEMY'S
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:03.100
  • FINGERS OFF OF THE PROMISES
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:05.100
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:19:05.100 --> 00:19:06.070
  • NOTICE HE WENT SIX TIMES.
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:08.090
  • SIX TIMES HE SAW NOTHING.
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:11.020
  • I THINK THIS IS SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:12.020
  • THAT IT WAS SIX TIMES.
  • 00:19:12.020 --> 00:19:14.020
  • BECAUSE WHAT IS THE THING
  • 00:19:14.020 --> 00:19:16.030
  • THAT REALLY DISCOURAGES US
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:18.100
  • IN PRAYER?
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.020
  • TIME.
  • 00:19:20.020 --> 00:19:21.080
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:22.050
  • I MEAN, MOST PEOPLE CAN STAND
  • 00:19:22.200 --> 00:19:25.200
  • IN FAITH FOR SHORT PERIODS
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:28.000
  • OF TIME.
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:29.060
  • BUT MOST PEOPLE LOSE THE BATTLE
  • 00:19:29.060 --> 00:19:31.140
  • WHEN THE BATTLE GOES BEYOND
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:33.170
  • THEIR OWN ABILITY TO STAND
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:37.150
  • FOR A PARTICULAR THING
  • 00:19:37.150 --> 00:19:38.280
  • AND TIME LENGTHENS.
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:41.030
  • AND, SO, I THINK IT'S REAL
  • 00:19:41.030 --> 00:19:41.260
  • SIGNIFICANT THAT THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:43.240
  • SAYS SIX TIMES HE WENT
  • 00:19:43.240 --> 00:19:45.060
  • AND HE SAW NOTHING
  • 00:19:45.060 --> 00:19:46.150
  • BECAUSE ON A CLOCK TIME --
  • 00:19:46.150 --> 00:19:48.120
  • WHERE'S SIX?
  • 00:19:48.120 --> 00:19:49.230
  • IT'S RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:19:49.230 --> 00:19:51.240
  • AND, SO, WE KNOW WHEN WE'RE ON
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:55.240
  • SIX THAT TO GO BACK IS JUST AS
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:20:00.050
  • MUCH ENERGY AS TO GO FORWARD.
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:03.120
  • AND GOD SAYS SIX TIMES HE WENT
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:07.050
  • AND HE SAW NOTHING AND HERE'S
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:09.010
  • WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO YOU:
  • 00:20:09.010 --> 00:20:10.080
  • DON'T EVER, EVER, EVER
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:12.240
  • STOP ON SIX.
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:14.100
  • DON'T QUIT.
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:15.130
  • IT TAKES JUST AS MUCH ENERGY
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:17.030
  • TO GO BACK AS IT DOES
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:19.060
  • TO KEEP GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:20:19.060 --> 00:20:20.000
  • KEEP PUSHING ON.
  • 00:20:20.000 --> 00:20:21.020
  • KEEP PRESSING FORWARD.
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:22.110
  • KEEP GOING TOWARD THE PRIZE.
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:23.190
  • DON'T GET YOUR EYES OFF
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:25.150
  • OF THE GOAL.
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:26.120
  • KEEP IT ON WHAT GOD SAID.
  • 00:20:26.120 --> 00:20:27.190
  • KEEP IT ON HIS PROMISES.
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:28.280
  • SOONER OR LATER YOU WILL REAP
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:31.090
  • IF YOU FAINT NOT.
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:32.240
  • DON'T STOP ON SIX.
  • 00:20:33.010 --> 00:20:36.010
  • WHAT IF, WHAT IF, WHAT IF,
  • 00:20:36.010 --> 00:20:37.170
  • WHAT IF PETER DIDN'T CAST
  • 00:20:38.120 --> 00:20:41.120
  • HIS NET OUT ONE MORE TIME
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:42.270
  • AFTER HAVING FISHED
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:44.150
  • AND CAUGHT NOTHING?
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:45.230
  • WHAT IF JOSHUA AND
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:48.170
  • THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • 00:20:48.170 --> 00:20:50.130
  • ONLY MARCHED AROUND THE CITY
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.010
  • SIX TIMES?
  • 00:20:52.010 --> 00:20:53.160
  • WHAT IF THE WIDOW ACCEPTED
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:56.220
  • THE FIRST "NO"
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:58.160
  • OF THE UNJUST JUDGE?
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:20:59.150
  • WHAT IF ELIJAH TOOK THE WORD
  • 00:20:59.150 --> 00:21:01.170
  • OF THE SERVANT ON THE SIXTH TIME
  • 00:21:01.170 --> 00:21:04.010
  • AND SAID, "OKAY, NOTHING.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.050
  • GOD -- I MUST HAVE MISSED GOD."
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:07.060
  • THERE IS A SEVENTH TIME.
  • 00:21:07.060 --> 00:21:09.100
  • I DON'T KNOW WHEN YOUR
  • 00:21:09.100 --> 00:21:10.260
  • SEVENTH TIME IS GOING
  • 00:21:10.260 --> 00:21:12.000
  • TO COME BUT THERE IS A TIME
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:13.160
  • WHEN YOU WILL PRAY THAT PROMISE
  • 00:21:13.160 --> 00:21:15.170
  • WHERE HELL WILL LOSE ITS GRIP
  • 00:21:15.170 --> 00:21:17.270
  • AND YOU WILL SEE YOUR ANSWER.
  • 00:21:17.270 --> 00:21:20.060
  • THE QUESTION IS,
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:21.290
  • "CAN YOU BE PERSISTENT?"
  • 00:21:21.290 --> 00:21:22.290
  • CAN YOU KEEP PRAYING
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:26.090
  • AND KEEP PRESSING
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:28.000
  • AND KEEP BELIEVING?
  • 00:21:28.000 --> 00:21:30.090
  • WILL YOU GO LOOK AGAIN?
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:32.280
  • GO LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:21:32.280 --> 00:21:34.100
  • HEAVEN'S ON YOUR SIDE.
  • 00:21:34.100 --> 00:21:35.090
  • GO LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:21:35.090 --> 00:21:36.130
  • "GREATER IS HE THAT'S IN YOU
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:38.010
  • THAN HE THAT'S IN THE WORLD."
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:39.030
  • GO LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:21:39.030 --> 00:21:39.280
  • IF WE PRAY ACCORDING TO HIS WILL
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:42.040
  • HE HEARS US AND IF WE KNOW
  • 00:21:42.040 --> 00:21:43.120
  • THAT HE HEARS US WE KNOW
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:45.110
  • WE HAVE THE PETITIONS
  • 00:21:45.110 --> 00:21:47.030
  • THAT WE'VE ASKED OF HIM.
  • 00:21:47.030 --> 00:21:48.210
  • I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT SAYS
  • 00:21:48.210 --> 00:21:49.230
  • IT CAME TO PASS THE SEVENTH TIME
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:51.130
