  • Gregory: The mostpowerful words on earth.
  • 00:00:42.899 --> 00:00:44.334
  • Do you rememberwhen Lazarus died?
  • 00:00:44.367 --> 00:00:46.369
  • And Lazarus was thebrother of Mary and Martha.
  • 00:00:46.402 --> 00:00:50.106
  • And so, Jesus knewMary and Martha.
  • 00:00:50.140 --> 00:00:51.774
  • He knew Lazarus.He loved them.
  • 00:00:51.808 --> 00:00:54.210
  • They loved him.
  • 00:00:54.244 --> 00:00:55.812
  • And Lazarus diessuddenly, and they reach out,
  • 00:00:55.845 --> 00:00:58.148
  • and hey send somebody,"Could you tell Jesus that
  • 00:00:58.181 --> 00:01:00.450
  • our brother Lazarus has died?"
  • 00:01:00.483 --> 00:01:02.785
  • And so, word got to Jesusbut he was delayed in coming,
  • 00:01:02.819 --> 00:01:06.055
  • either he delayed himself or heallowed himself to be delayed
  • 00:01:06.089 --> 00:01:11.060
  • because he didn't need tocome at the exact time
  • 00:01:11.094 --> 00:01:16.599
  • that they wanted him to come.
  • 00:01:16.633 --> 00:01:19.002
  • God's timing isalways the right time,
  • 00:01:19.035 --> 00:01:22.539
  • and it's nevertoo late with God.
  • 00:01:22.572 --> 00:01:24.240
  • Say that, "It's never too late."
  • 00:01:24.274 --> 00:01:26.609
  • Boy, I believe that aboutGod, that his timing is always
  • 00:01:26.643 --> 00:01:30.113
  • perfect and it's nevertoo late, no matter
  • 00:01:30.146 --> 00:01:32.815
  • how bad the situation is.
  • 00:01:32.849 --> 00:01:34.784
  • You remember whenthat--when Jairus,
  • 00:01:34.817 --> 00:01:37.020
  • his daughter was sick,and he sent for Jesus,
  • 00:01:37.053 --> 00:01:39.255
  • and he said, "SendJesus a message.
  • 00:01:39.289 --> 00:01:42.192
  • Please come andheal my daughter.
  • 00:01:42.225 --> 00:01:43.726
  • She's sick."
  • 00:01:43.760 --> 00:01:45.061
  • And Jesus says, "I'mgonna go and do it."
  • 00:01:45.094 --> 00:01:47.430
  • And on his way back withJairus, his daughter dies.
  • 00:01:47.463 --> 00:01:53.670
  • Isn't it interesting that assoon as Jesus got involved with
  • 00:01:53.703 --> 00:01:56.472
  • Jairus, the situation got worse.
  • 00:01:56.506 --> 00:02:00.076
  • How many have ever thought,"Man, as soon as I started
  • 00:02:00.109 --> 00:02:02.612
  • following God, as soon as Istarted tithing, as soon as
  • 00:02:02.645 --> 00:02:06.049
  • I started forgiving, and assoon as I started going to
  • 00:02:06.082 --> 00:02:09.419
  • church, especially thatchurch--" come on, help me now.
  • 00:02:09.452 --> 00:02:13.957
  • As soon as I starteddoing what I thought God
  • 00:02:13.990 --> 00:02:15.625
  • said, things got worse.
  • 00:02:15.658 --> 00:02:18.461
  • But you know what,sometimes it gets worse
  • 00:02:18.494 --> 00:02:19.996
  • before it gets better, butthat's okay because God's not
  • 00:02:20.029 --> 00:02:23.199
  • limited by the currentcondition of the situation.
  • 00:02:23.233 --> 00:02:27.170
  • Because eventhough she was sick,
  • 00:02:27.203 --> 00:02:28.905
  • and when Jesus startedgoing with him, she died,
  • 00:02:28.938 --> 00:02:32.609
  • Jesus still came andraised her from the dead.
  • 00:02:32.642 --> 00:02:35.311
  • "Talitha cumi; little girl,I say to you arise."
  • 00:02:35.345 --> 00:02:38.448
  • And she was healedand she was
  • 00:02:38.481 --> 00:02:39.882
  • miraculously--shemiraculously recovered.
  • 00:02:39.916 --> 00:02:42.085
  • He raised the dead.
  • 00:02:42.118 --> 00:02:44.120
  • Well, it's nevertoo late for God.
  • 00:02:44.153 --> 00:02:45.822
  • No matter whatsituation you're in,
  • 00:02:45.855 --> 00:02:47.590
  • it's never too late, amen?
  • 00:02:47.624 --> 00:02:49.225
  • So, Jesus waits four daysbefore coming to Lazarus's tomb.
  • 00:02:49.259 --> 00:02:57.634
  • Lazarus is now dead forfour days, and Jesus gets there.
  • 00:02:57.667 --> 00:03:01.671
  • And in verse 38, Jesuswas moved with compassion.
  • 00:03:01.704 --> 00:03:06.175
  • Jesus said in verse 39,"'Remove the stone.'
  • 00:03:06.209 --> 00:03:09.312
  • And Martha said to him, thesister of Lazarus, 'Lord,
  • 00:03:09.345 --> 00:03:13.516
  • by this time there's a stench,for he's been dead four days.'
  • 00:03:13.549 --> 00:03:18.021
  • But Jesus said to her,'Did I not say to you,
  • 00:03:18.054 --> 00:03:20.590
  • if you believe, you willsee the glory of God?'"
  • 00:03:20.623 --> 00:03:23.259
  • Now, that ought to teach ussomething right there,
  • 00:03:23.293 --> 00:03:25.695
  • that if youbelieve, you will see.
  • 00:03:25.728 --> 00:03:28.598
  • Now, this is what livingby faith is all about.
  • 00:03:28.631 --> 00:03:31.100
  • It's believing God'sWord before you see it.
  • 00:03:31.134 --> 00:03:34.804
  • It's believing God'spromises before you see
  • 00:03:34.837 --> 00:03:37.940
  • them show up in your life.
  • 00:03:37.974 --> 00:03:39.509
  • Well, if you have to see it tobelieve it, then it's not faith
  • 00:03:39.542 --> 00:03:42.679
  • at all, but if you'll believeit, you'll eventually see it.
  • 00:03:42.712 --> 00:03:46.783
  • Anybody believe that here today?
  • 00:03:46.816 --> 00:03:48.351
  • He said, "Didn't I sayif you would believe,
  • 00:03:48.384 --> 00:03:51.487
  • you would see the glory of God?"
  • 00:03:51.521 --> 00:03:54.090
  • Or you would seeGod's power show up.
  • 00:03:54.123 --> 00:03:56.559
  • The word "glory" here is themanifestation of God's power.
  • 00:03:56.592 --> 00:04:01.631
  • If you believe, youwill see the glory of God.
  • 00:04:01.664 --> 00:04:04.801
  • But here, verse 41, "Andso they removed the stone,
  • 00:04:04.834 --> 00:04:09.305
  • and Jesus lifted up his eyes."
  • 00:04:09.339 --> 00:04:11.641
  • In verse 41, "Jesus liftedup his eyes and he
  • 00:04:11.674 --> 00:04:15.345
  • said, 'Father, I thank you.'"
  • 00:04:15.378 --> 00:04:18.981
  • Father, I thank you.Father, I thank you.
  • 00:04:19.015 --> 00:04:23.686
  • Father, I thank you.Father, I thank you.
  • 00:04:24.187 --> 00:04:28.324
  • Notice how Jesusprayed, "Father, I thank you."
  • 00:04:28.358 --> 00:04:31.761
  • Father--he didn't say,"Father, give me the power.
  • 00:04:31.794 --> 00:04:35.665
  • Father, raise him from the dead.
  • 00:04:35.698 --> 00:04:37.834
  • Father, help me."
  • 00:04:37.867 --> 00:04:39.635
  • No, "Father, thank you."
  • 00:04:39.669 --> 00:04:41.771
  • Not, "Father, will you?"
  • 00:04:41.804 --> 00:04:43.673
  • Not, "Father, can you?"
  • 00:04:43.706 --> 00:04:45.408
  • But, "Father, thank you."
  • 00:04:45.441 --> 00:04:48.111
  • Now, these are the mostpowerful words on earth.
  • 00:04:48.144 --> 00:04:50.713
  • The most powerful words onearth are, "Father, thank you.
  • 00:04:50.747 --> 00:04:55.051
  • Father, thank you."
  • 00:04:55.084 --> 00:04:57.320
  • You know, this ishow Jesus prayed.
  • 00:04:57.353 --> 00:04:59.222
  • He didn't pray,"Father, will you?"
  • 00:04:59.255 --> 00:05:01.791
  • But how many timeshave we prayed that?
  • 00:05:01.824 --> 00:05:03.726
  • "Father, can you?"
  • 00:05:03.760 --> 00:05:05.061
  • How many timeshave we prayed that?
  • 00:05:05.094 --> 00:05:06.562
  • "Father, if youdon't--I need this."
  • 00:05:06.596 --> 00:05:08.798
  • No, that's not how Jesus prayed.
  • 00:05:08.831 --> 00:05:10.867
  • He prayed, "Father, thank you.
  • 00:05:10.900 --> 00:05:13.102
  • Father, thank you.
  • 00:05:13.136 --> 00:05:15.004
  • Father, I thank you."
  • 00:05:15.037 --> 00:05:16.706
  • And listen, this isn't the firsttime that he prayed this way.
  • 00:05:16.739 --> 00:05:20.042
  • He prayed this way inMatthew chapter 11 when he said,
  • 00:05:20.076 --> 00:05:23.012
  • "Father, I thank you that youhave not revealed these things
  • 00:05:23.045 --> 00:05:26.516
  • to the wise and theintelligent, but to the babes,
  • 00:05:26.549 --> 00:05:30.319
  • to the innocent, to thepure, to the humble."
  • 00:05:30.353 --> 00:05:32.955
  • This is whatJesus--this is how
  • 00:05:32.989 --> 00:05:34.457
  • Jesus prays, "Father,thank you."
  • 00:05:34.490 --> 00:05:36.793
  • Now, remember, thankfulness isthe gateway to three things.
  • 00:05:36.826 --> 00:05:40.797
  • Thankfulness is thegateway to happiness.
  • 00:05:40.830 --> 00:05:44.033
  • I think that we have to realizethat happiness is not some
  • 00:05:44.066 --> 00:05:48.471
  • secular, worldly,unspiritual thing.
  • 00:05:48.504 --> 00:05:52.074
  • Happiness was God's idea.
  • 00:05:52.108 --> 00:05:54.444
  • The Bible says, "Happyis the man who
  • 00:05:54.477 --> 00:05:56.078
  • knows his sins are forgiven."
  • 00:05:56.112 --> 00:05:57.413
  • The Bible says,"Happy is the one
  • 00:05:57.447 --> 00:05:58.748
  • that does not condemn himself."
  • 00:05:58.781 --> 00:06:00.149
  • The Bible says, "Happyis the man that finds
  • 00:06:00.183 --> 00:06:01.951
  • wisdom and gets understanding."
  • 00:06:01.984 --> 00:06:03.753
  • We can go through theBible and say--and
  • 00:06:03.786 --> 00:06:05.488
  • see Scripture after Scripture.
  • 00:06:05.521 --> 00:06:06.956
  • In Jeremiah chapter 17, he said,"Happy is the man that trusts in
  • 00:06:06.989 --> 00:06:11.961
  • the Lord and whosetrust is the Lord."
  • 00:06:11.994 --> 00:06:14.263
  • We can go and find itfrom Genesis to Revelation,
  • 00:06:14.297 --> 00:06:17.066
  • how God's--God is the source andauthor of all happiness and all
  • 00:06:17.099 --> 00:06:22.405
  • of the things in the Bible thattell us that these things will
  • 00:06:22.438 --> 00:06:25.241
  • make us happy, that God saysthat when you know your sins
  • 00:06:25.274 --> 00:06:28.010
  • are forgiven, you'll be happy.
  • 00:06:28.044 --> 00:06:29.412
  • When you trustGod, you'll be happy.
  • 00:06:29.445 --> 00:06:31.214
  • Happiness is notsome worldly feeling.
  • 00:06:31.247 --> 00:06:33.516
  • Happiness is God's idea.
  • 00:06:33.549 --> 00:06:35.184
  • Happiness was God's idea.
  • 00:06:35.218 --> 00:06:36.986
  • Happiness is God's idea.
  • 00:06:37.019 --> 00:06:39.555
  • In fact, if you look at yourlife, everything you do today,
  • 00:06:39.589 --> 00:06:42.859
  • everything you'll dotomorrow is in some
  • 00:06:42.892 --> 00:06:45.361
  • way done to make you happy.
  • 00:06:45.394 --> 00:06:48.064
  • Whether it's going to work soyou can have money so that you
  • 00:06:48.097 --> 00:06:51.267
  • can give and payyour bills, why?
  • 00:06:51.300 --> 00:06:53.469
  • So you'll be happy.
  • 00:06:53.503 --> 00:06:54.804
  • Whether it's treatingsomebody in a
  • 00:06:54.837 --> 00:06:56.172
  • good way, why will you do that?
  • 00:06:56.205 --> 00:06:57.507
  • Because it'll make themhappy; it'll make you happy.
  • 00:06:57.540 --> 00:06:59.775
  • Whether it's leading somebody toJesus Christ and seeing somebody
  • 00:06:59.809 --> 00:07:02.845
  • get born again bysharing your faith,
  • 00:07:02.879 --> 00:07:04.647
  • why are you doing it?
  • 00:07:04.680 --> 00:07:05.982
  • Because it makes themhappy, it makes God happy,
  • 00:07:06.015 --> 00:07:08.618
  • and it makes you happy.
  • 00:07:08.651 --> 00:07:10.086
  • You might think this is such alimited word about happiness,
  • 00:07:10.119 --> 00:07:13.289
  • and yet everything we dois done to make us happy.
  • 00:07:13.322 --> 00:07:16.092
  • Studies show that everythingpeople do in their lives,
  • 00:07:16.125 --> 00:07:19.095
  • their actions, their behaviors,are done to make them happy.
  • 00:07:19.128 --> 00:07:22.765
  • But the fact is is that we dowhat we do in order to obtain
  • 00:07:22.798 --> 00:07:27.370
  • happiness, and God wantsus to obtain it his way.
  • 00:07:27.403 --> 00:07:30.072
  • And I'm telling you,thankfulness is
  • 00:07:30.106 --> 00:07:31.841
  • the gateway to happiness.
  • 00:07:31.874 --> 00:07:34.310
  • It's the gateway to happiness.
  • 00:07:34.343 --> 00:07:36.178
  • Thankfulness is thegateway to the miraculous.
  • 00:07:36.212 --> 00:07:39.782
  • We talked about that a littlebit and I'm gonna show you here
  • 00:07:39.815 --> 00:07:42.151
  • how it's the gatewayto the miraculous.
  • 00:07:42.184 --> 00:07:44.220
  • And thirdly, it's thegateway to your purpose.
  • 00:07:44.253 --> 00:07:47.590
  • It's the gatewayto your purpose.
  • 00:07:47.623 --> 00:07:49.358
  • If you could get ahold of this,I think that every one of us
  • 00:07:49.392 --> 00:07:52.495
  • could say today we'reseeking today to be happy,
  • 00:07:52.528 --> 00:07:57.333
  • we're seeking a miracle, orwe're seeking to discover our
  • 00:07:57.366 --> 00:08:00.202
  • purpose, and our destiny,and God's will for our lives.
  • 00:08:00.236 --> 00:08:03.806
  • Is there anybody here that couldagree with that with me today?
  • 00:08:03.839 --> 00:08:06.809
  • Every one of us is seekingone of those things or a
  • 00:08:06.842 --> 00:08:09.211
  • combination of all of them.
  • 00:08:09.245 --> 00:08:10.646
  • We're seeking happiness.
  • 00:08:10.680 --> 00:08:12.048
  • We're seeking the miraculous.
  • 00:08:12.081 --> 00:08:14.150
  • We're seeking purpose.
  • 00:08:14.183 --> 00:08:15.484
  • And yet, gratitude andthankfulness is the gateway to
  • 00:08:15.518 --> 00:08:19.855
  • all three of those things.
  • 00:08:19.889 --> 00:08:21.490
  • So, let's take theshortcut to those three things.
  • 00:08:21.524 --> 00:08:24.894
  • Let's take the shortcut toour purpose by being grateful.
  • 00:08:24.927 --> 00:08:27.830
  • Let's take the shortcut to themiraculous by being thankful.
  • 00:08:27.863 --> 00:08:30.800
  • Let's take the shortcut tohappiness by being thankful.
  • 00:08:30.833 --> 00:08:35.304
  • It works every time.
  • 00:08:35.338 --> 00:08:39.942
  • So, let's look at this miraclein John 11, verse 41.
  • 00:08:39.976 --> 00:08:44.080
  • So, Jesus comesto this dead man.
  • 00:08:44.113 --> 00:08:47.083
  • Four days he's beendead, and Jesus
  • 00:08:47.116 --> 00:08:49.552
  • says, "Father, I thank you.
  • 00:08:49.585 --> 00:08:51.887
  • Father, I thank you."
  • 00:08:51.921 --> 00:08:53.556
  • Now, let's talkabout this for a minute.
  • 00:08:53.589 --> 00:08:55.358
  • What is he thanking him for?
  • 00:08:55.391 --> 00:08:56.959
  • The power is in the specificityof what you're thanking God for.
  • 00:08:56.993 --> 00:09:01.697
  • And notice specifically whatJesus thanks the Father for.
  • 00:09:01.731 --> 00:09:06.202
  • "Father, I thank youthat you have heard me.
  • 00:09:06.235 --> 00:09:09.205
  • I thank you thatyou have heard me."
  • 00:09:09.238 --> 00:09:11.107
  • Boy, when you come torealize that God hears you,
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:15.311
  • it will make you thankful.
  • 00:09:15.344 --> 00:09:16.779
  • You see, it's in the reality ofknowing that he hears you that
  • 00:09:16.812 --> 00:09:22.018
  • causes Jesus tothank the Father.
  • 00:09:22.051 --> 00:09:26.956
  • He's not thanking him outof a ritual, he's thanking him
  • 00:09:26.989 --> 00:09:30.860
  • because he believes theFather has heard him.
  • 00:09:30.893 --> 00:09:36.399
  • You know, something happens whenyou believe God has heard you.
  • 00:09:36.432 --> 00:09:40.803
  • It affects you.
  • 00:09:40.836 --> 00:09:42.138
  • It affects your emotions.
  • 00:09:42.171 --> 00:09:43.472
  • It affects your attitude.
  • 00:09:43.506 --> 00:09:45.274
  • It affects your perspective.
  • 00:09:45.307 --> 00:09:48.477
  • I love this verse inPsalm 116, verse 1.
  • 00:09:48.511 --> 00:09:51.814
  • He says, "I love theLord because he heard
  • 00:09:51.847 --> 00:09:55.718
  • my voice and my prayer."
  • 00:09:55.751 --> 00:09:58.220
  • I love the Lord 'cause heheard my voice and my prayer.
  • 00:09:58.254 --> 00:10:02.458
  • Knowing that God hears himcaused David to love God.
  • 00:10:02.491 --> 00:10:06.395
  • Knowing that God heardhim caused Jesus
  • 00:10:06.429 --> 00:10:10.466
  • to thank the Father.
  • 00:10:10.499 --> 00:10:12.268
  • Father, I thank you.Father, I thank you.
  • 00:10:12.301 --> 00:10:14.370
  • See, it's not a ritual.
  • 00:10:14.403 --> 00:10:16.772
  • It's not a religion.
  • 00:10:16.806 --> 00:10:18.541
  • It's not a learn--it'snot a manner.
  • 00:10:18.574 --> 00:10:22.745
  • Now, there's nothingwrong with being--with
  • 00:10:22.778 --> 00:10:24.580
  • having thankful manners.
  • 00:10:24.613 --> 00:10:26.649
  • That's way better thanbeing unthankful and
  • 00:10:26.682 --> 00:10:28.317
  • having bad manners, right?
  • 00:10:28.350 --> 00:10:30.352
  • It's better to have goodmanners than bad, but that's
  • 00:10:30.386 --> 00:10:32.521
  • not what we're talkingabout, our manners.
  • 00:10:32.555 --> 00:10:35.925
  • We're talking about the mostpowerful words on earth
  • 00:10:35.958 --> 00:10:40.529
  • are, "Father, I thank you."
  • 00:10:40.563 --> 00:10:42.865
  • Again, in John 11:41, Jesusprays, "Father, I thank you."
  • 00:10:42.898 --> 00:10:46.635
  • Notice this, "I thank youthat you have heard me."
  • 00:10:46.669 --> 00:10:49.805
  • And then notice whathe says in verse 42,
  • 00:10:49.839 --> 00:10:52.475
  • "I know that you always hear me,but because of the people who
  • 00:10:52.508 --> 00:10:56.345
  • are standing here,that's why I said this,
  • 00:10:56.378 --> 00:10:59.648
  • so that they willbelieve that you sent me."
  • 00:10:59.682 --> 00:11:03.085
  • And then verse 43, he says,"And so, when he had said these
  • 00:11:03.119 --> 00:11:08.591
  • things, he cried with a loudvoice, 'Lazarus, come forth!'"
  • 00:11:08.624 --> 00:11:15.297
  • And what happens, verse 44?
  • 00:11:15.331 --> 00:11:16.799
  • Picture this, folks.
  • 00:11:16.832 --> 00:11:18.334
  • Look at verse 44, "Andhe who had died came out,
  • 00:11:18.367 --> 00:11:21.837
  • bound hand and footwith grave clothes,
  • 00:11:21.871 --> 00:11:25.374
  • around his facewrapped with a cloth.
  • 00:11:25.407 --> 00:11:27.276
  • And Jesus said, 'Loosehim and let him go.'"
  • 00:11:27.309 --> 00:11:31.080
  • And all of this happened,this miracle, the power of
  • 00:11:31.113 --> 00:11:34.850
  • the miraculous, comesfrom the power of gratitude.
  • 00:11:34.884 --> 00:11:38.888
  • "Father, I thank you,"and a miracle takes place.
  • 00:11:38.921 --> 00:11:41.791
  • "Father, I thank youthat you've heard me
  • 00:11:41.824 --> 00:11:44.460
  • and you always hear me."
  • 00:11:44.493 --> 00:11:46.228
  • You wanna know how to be heardby God is it's found in 1 John
  • 00:11:46.262 --> 00:11:50.633
  • chapter 5, verse 14,'cause God hears you too.
  • 00:11:50.666 --> 00:11:54.003
  • But here's how your prayersget answered, "Ask anything
  • 00:11:54.036 --> 00:11:57.106
  • according to his will,and he hears you."
  • 00:11:57.139 --> 00:12:01.844
  • And if you haveconfidence that he hears you,
  • 00:12:01.877 --> 00:12:04.613
  • you can have confidencein whatever you've asked,
  • 00:12:04.647 --> 00:12:08.184
  • you receive from him.
  • 00:12:08.217 --> 00:12:10.486
  • Boy, God knows howto tie this thing up,
  • 00:12:10.519 --> 00:12:13.989
  • and to make it plainand make it simple.
  • 00:12:14.023 --> 00:12:18.527
  • It's really simple.
  • 00:12:18.561 --> 00:12:20.596
  • He hears you when you pray.
  • 00:12:20.629 --> 00:12:22.598
  • And you know howto know his will?
  • 00:12:22.631 --> 00:12:24.300
  • Look in the Bible.What has he left?
  • 00:12:24.333 --> 00:12:26.702
  • Seven thousand promises that notone of them are maybe and not
  • 00:12:26.735 --> 00:12:32.107
  • one of them are no, but all ofthem are yes and amen in Christ.
  • 00:12:32.141 --> 00:12:38.180
  • All the promises of God,all the promises of God
  • 00:12:38.214 --> 00:12:43.652
  • are yes and amen in Christ.
  • 00:12:43.686 --> 00:12:48.858
  • If you're born again, Godsays yes to all of his promises.
  • 00:12:48.891 --> 00:12:54.230
  • All that you needto do is ask him.
  • 00:12:54.263 --> 00:12:56.899
  • And the way to askhim is not, "Father, will you?"
  • 00:12:56.932 --> 00:13:00.269
  • It's not, "Father, can you?"
  • 00:13:00.302 --> 00:13:02.104
  • It's, "Father, thank you."
  • 00:13:02.137 --> 00:13:04.173
  • Thank you.
  • 00:13:04.206 --> 00:13:05.674
  • Father, I thank you.
  • 00:13:05.708 --> 00:13:07.943
  • It's not, "Father,I wonder about you.
  • 00:13:07.977 --> 00:13:11.447
  • Father, I wonderif you can do it."
  • 00:13:11.480 --> 00:13:15.951
  • It's, "Father, I thankyou that you've heard me
  • 00:13:15.985 --> 00:13:18.587
  • and you always hear me."
  • 00:13:18.621 --> 00:13:21.390
  • He always hears thecry of his children.
  • 00:13:21.423 --> 00:13:23.826
  • And any promise that is utteredout of your mouth is a prayer
  • 00:13:23.859 --> 00:13:27.496
  • that God says yes to.
  • 00:13:27.529 --> 00:13:29.231
  • And especially when itbegins with, "Thank you.
  • 00:13:29.265 --> 00:13:32.701
  • Father, I thank you.Father, I thank you.
  • 00:13:32.735 --> 00:13:34.904
  • Father, I thank you."
  • 00:13:34.937 --> 00:13:36.238
  • Oh, the power of thankfulness.
  • 00:13:36.272 --> 00:13:38.073
  • It produces the miraculous,it produces happiness,
  • 00:13:38.107 --> 00:13:40.643
  • and it produces purpose.
  • 00:13:40.676 --> 00:13:41.977
  • It is the gateway to yourhappiness, it is the gateway to
  • 00:13:42.011 --> 00:13:45.781
  • your purpose, and it is thegateway to the miraculous.
  • 00:13:45.814 --> 00:13:50.419
  • Father, I thank you that nomatter what weapons are formed
  • 00:13:50.452 --> 00:13:54.590
  • against me, none ofthem will prosper.
  • 00:13:54.623 --> 00:13:58.394
  • No matter what,Father, I thank you.
  • 00:13:58.427 --> 00:14:01.030
  • See, these are the mostpowerful words on earth.
  • 00:14:01.063 --> 00:14:03.899
  • Father, I thank you thatno matter who is for me,
  • 00:14:03.933 --> 00:14:06.802
  • God, you are for me.
  • 00:14:06.835 --> 00:14:08.437
  • No matter who's againstme, God, you are for me.
  • 00:14:08.470 --> 00:14:12.274
  • Death, life, angels,or principalities,
  • 00:14:12.308 --> 00:14:14.109
  • none of them can separateme from the love of God.
  • 00:14:14.143 --> 00:14:16.178
  • Father, I thank youthat you love me.
  • 00:14:16.211 --> 00:14:17.913
  • I thank you that you're for me.
  • 00:14:17.947 --> 00:14:19.281
  • I thank you that you're with me.
  • 00:14:19.315 --> 00:14:20.883
  • It's all about gratitude forwho God is and what he's already
  • 00:14:20.916 --> 00:14:24.853
  • done, and that's whereour focus needs to be.
  • 00:14:24.887 --> 00:14:27.790
  • And I might sound--I mightsound like a broken record.
  • 00:14:27.823 --> 00:14:31.493
  • I might sound likea broken record,
  • 00:14:31.527 --> 00:14:33.128
  • but that's how I memorized allthe songs that I know by heart
  • 00:14:33.162 --> 00:14:35.998
  • is when I used to play 'emon my little phonograph.
  • 00:14:36.031 --> 00:14:38.267
  • Anybody rememberwhat a phonograph is?
  • 00:14:38.300 --> 00:14:40.502
  • Not photograph.
  • 00:14:40.536 --> 00:14:41.837
  • Most people don'teven know what that is.
  • 00:14:41.870 --> 00:14:45.374
  • But a phonographwas a record player.
  • 00:14:45.407 --> 00:14:47.977
  • Anybody ever heard of a record?
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:50.579
  • Somebody said, "Whatrecord did you break?"
  • 00:14:50.612 --> 00:14:52.214
  • I broke all of them.
  • 00:14:52.247 --> 00:14:53.549
  • They all skipped firstthough, and all of
  • 00:14:53.582 --> 00:14:56.352
  • my records--youknow the grooves?
  • 00:14:56.385 --> 00:14:57.987
  • The grooves on theneedle--the grooves in
  • 00:14:58.020 --> 00:15:00.556
  • the vinyl and then the needle.
  • 00:15:00.589 --> 00:15:02.124
  • I think they'repopular now again,
  • 00:15:02.157 --> 00:15:03.459
  • or they've made acomeback a little bit,
  • 00:15:03.492 --> 00:15:05.861
  • that people listen to--gobuy these vinyl records.
  • 00:15:05.894 --> 00:15:10.099
  • But what would happen is Ihad--my favorite album was
  • 00:15:10.132 --> 00:15:12.835
  • "The Jackson 5 Greatest Hits."
  • 00:15:12.868 --> 00:15:15.804
  • And, ooh, that's controversialthese days too, sorry.
  • 00:15:15.838 --> 00:15:20.642
  • You can't say anything in lifetoday without somebody taking
  • 00:15:20.676 --> 00:15:23.379
  • offense to it and reading itthe wrong way, reading into it
  • 00:15:23.412 --> 00:15:26.248
  • the wrong way, but I lovedthe Jackson 5 when I was a kid.
  • 00:15:26.281 --> 00:15:29.318
  • And you know, Iremember the one song I
  • 00:15:29.351 --> 00:15:32.287
  • used to play all the time.
  • 00:15:32.321 --> 00:15:34.089
  • "Got to be there--got to bethere--got to be there--got
  • 00:15:34.123 --> 00:15:38.627
  • to--" it never wouldget to,
  • 00:15:38.660 --> 00:15:40.429
  • ♪ Be there. ♪
  • 00:15:40.462 --> 00:15:42.398
  • That's bad, I usedto be able to sing that high.
  • 00:15:42.431 --> 00:15:45.534
  • ♪ In the morning. ♪
  • 00:15:45.567 --> 00:15:48.070
  • "Got to be--got to be--got tobe--got to be--got to be there."
  • 00:15:48.103 --> 00:15:53.976
  • So, you'd have to put--you'dhave to press down on the needle
  • 00:15:54.009 --> 00:15:58.514
  • so would go--it wouldget into the groove
  • 00:15:58.547 --> 00:16:00.482
  • and it would keep playing.
  • 00:16:00.516 --> 00:16:01.984
  • That's how we listenedto music back in the day.
  • 00:16:02.017 --> 00:16:05.454
  • You know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:16:05.487 --> 00:16:10.125
  • But if I sound like a brokenrecord, it's so you can get it.
  • 00:16:10.159 --> 00:16:14.997
  • "Got to--got to--gotto--got to--got to be there."
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:18.233
  • It's so you willtruly get ahold of this.
  • 00:16:18.267 --> 00:16:20.402
  • This is not some fancy sermon.
  • 00:16:20.436 --> 00:16:23.005

  • 00:17:21.296 --> 00:17:23.565
  • What God has done foryou is greater than what
  • 00:17:23.599 --> 00:17:25.300
  • people have done to you.
  • 00:17:25.334 --> 00:17:27.703
  • Just get a hold of that fora minute, that what God has done
  • 00:17:27.736 --> 00:17:30.372
  • for you is greater thanwhat people have done to you.
  • 00:17:30.405 --> 00:17:35.711
  • You can only be offended if youbelieve that what people have
  • 00:17:35.744 --> 00:17:40.315
  • done to you is greater thanwhat God has done for you.
  • 00:17:40.349 --> 00:17:45.954
  • Romans 1 verse 21, notice whathe says here, "For although they
  • 00:17:45.988 --> 00:17:49.958
  • knew God, they did notglorify him as God."
  • 00:17:49.992 --> 00:17:54.363
  • In other words, theydidn't magnify the Lord.
  • 00:17:54.396 --> 00:17:56.431
  • They put the magnifying glass onthemselves rather than on God.
  • 00:17:56.465 --> 00:18:00.202
  • "Nor did they give him thanks,but their thinking became futile
  • 00:18:00.235 --> 00:18:06.375
  • and their foolishhearts were darkened."
  • 00:18:06.408 --> 00:18:08.510
  • How did theirthinking become futile?
  • 00:18:08.544 --> 00:18:11.213
  • Because they didnot give him thanks.
  • 00:18:11.246 --> 00:18:13.715
  • And what does it mean tobe futile in your thinking?
  • 00:18:13.749 --> 00:18:15.884
  • The word "futile"means without purpose.
  • 00:18:15.918 --> 00:18:19.254
  • Without purpose.
  • 00:18:19.288 --> 00:18:20.856
  • You miss your purposewhen you're not thankful.
  • 00:18:20.889 --> 00:18:26.495
  • But when you're thankful, itbrings you into purposeful
  • 00:18:26.528 --> 00:18:32.401
  • life and purposeful direction.
  • 00:18:32.434 --> 00:18:36.205
  • And when you'reungrateful and unthankful,
  • 00:18:36.238 --> 00:18:39.308
  • it makes your thoughts futile.
  • 00:18:39.341 --> 00:18:41.810
  • You live a life without purpose,without focus, without aim.
  • 00:18:41.843 --> 00:18:47.416
  • I choose thankfulnessfor what God has done.
  • 00:18:47.449 --> 00:18:51.086
  • How about you?
  • 00:18:51.119 --> 00:18:54.456
  • Boy, if we get ahold ofthis, if we get ahold of this,
  • 00:18:54.489 --> 00:19:00.162
  • that how do youexpress thankfulness?
  • 00:19:00.195 --> 00:19:01.730
  • To be thankful, it requires youto be humble and it requires
  • 00:19:01.763 --> 00:19:05.934
  • you to use your memory.
  • 00:19:05.968 --> 00:19:08.136
  • We gotta remember thatit is he that gives.
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:10.906
  • It is he that gives.It is he that gives.
  • 00:19:10.939 --> 00:19:13.242
  • And we need to behumble, meaning--
  • 00:19:13.275 --> 00:19:15.510
  • what does it mean to be humble?
  • 00:19:15.544 --> 00:19:16.845
  • The word "humble," the word"humility," comes from the Latin
  • 00:19:16.878 --> 00:19:20.582
  • word "humus," whichmeans--it means the earth.
  • 00:19:20.616 --> 00:19:26.989
  • It means--it meansthe earth, versus
  • 00:19:27.022 --> 00:19:31.093
  • "hubris," which is arrogance.
  • 00:19:31.126 --> 00:19:33.762
  • It means to see yourselfabove the earth and to see
  • 00:19:33.795 --> 00:19:36.999
  • yourself better than others.
  • 00:19:37.032 --> 00:19:39.201
  • But humility is to be the earth,that other people can walk on
  • 00:19:39.234 --> 00:19:45.307
  • the path of your life to get toGod's destiny for their lives.
  • 00:19:45.340 --> 00:19:50.012
  • It's to become apath for others.
  • 00:19:50.045 --> 00:19:52.147
  • Humility is to be thankful andto be--and to remember what
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:57.352
  • God has done and tobecome a path for others.
  • 00:19:57.386 --> 00:20:00.188
  • We become the earth for others.
  • 00:20:00.222 --> 00:20:02.591
  • We're low to the ground, meaningwe don't think more highly of
  • 00:20:02.624 --> 00:20:06.495
  • ourselves, but doesn't meanwe think bad of ourselves.
  • 00:20:06.528 --> 00:20:09.631
  • It means that wedon't think that
  • 00:20:09.665 --> 00:20:11.066
  • we're better than other people.
  • 00:20:11.099 --> 00:20:13.502
  • And the goal is not to bebetter than somebody else,
  • 00:20:13.535 --> 00:20:15.437
  • it's to be the bestversion of yourself.
  • 00:20:15.470 --> 00:20:18.840
  • To be humble is to be madeof earth, to realize that you're
  • 00:20:18.874 --> 00:20:22.844
  • down to earth, to be adown-to-earth person, a
  • 00:20:22.878 --> 00:20:25.814
  • person who you let God useyou for other people to find
  • 00:20:25.847 --> 00:20:29.217
  • the path, to find a path toJesus, to find a path to
  • 00:20:29.251 --> 00:20:33.388
  • kindness, to find a path toGod's will for their lives.
  • 00:20:33.422 --> 00:20:38.126
  • Don't you want that?
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:39.528
  • Don't you wanna be apath for somebody else?
  • 00:20:39.561 --> 00:20:42.431
  • That's humility.
  • 00:20:42.464 --> 00:20:44.232
  • And to--and using thathumility and that memory to
  • 00:20:44.266 --> 00:20:48.537
  • remember it is he that gives.
  • 00:20:48.570 --> 00:20:52.140
  • It is he that gives.
  • 00:20:52.174 --> 00:20:54.076
  • Everything good thatyou have came from God.
  • 00:20:54.109 --> 00:20:57.179
  • That'll make you thankful.
  • 00:20:57.212 --> 00:20:58.747
  • That'll keep you humble.
  • 00:20:58.780 --> 00:21:00.115
  • Gregory: Well, it's so true,the most powerful words on
  • 00:21:04.486 --> 00:21:06.855
  • earth, "Father, I thank you.
  • 00:21:06.888 --> 00:21:09.191
  • Father, I thank you."
  • 00:21:09.224 --> 00:21:11.159
  • You know, if you're joining metoday and you haven't believed
  • 00:21:11.193 --> 00:21:13.995
  • the promise of salvation yet,if you have no received Jesus as
  • 00:21:14.029 --> 00:21:17.232
  • your Savior and Lord,before I go any further,
  • 00:21:17.265 --> 00:21:20.335
  • let me pray with youright where you are.
  • 00:21:20.369 --> 00:21:22.371
  • And you know what, it doesn'tmatter what you've been through.
  • 00:21:22.404 --> 00:21:24.539
  • It doesn't matter whatyou're going through.
  • 00:21:24.573 --> 00:21:25.941
  • It doesn't matterwhat you're about to do.
  • 00:21:25.974 --> 00:21:27.909
  • It's all about to change.
  • 00:21:27.943 --> 00:21:29.511
  • Would you just praythis with me if
  • 00:21:29.544 --> 00:21:31.246
  • you're not sure you'regoing to heaven?
  • 00:21:31.279 --> 00:21:32.581
  • You can be sure rightnow just by saying this.
  • 00:21:32.614 --> 00:21:35.484
  • Jesus, I believe you died for mysins and you rose from the dead.
  • 00:21:35.517 --> 00:21:42.124
  • Heavenly Father, Ireceive the grace,
  • 00:21:42.157 --> 00:21:46.561
  • the gift of salvationthrough the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:21:46.595 --> 00:21:51.767
  • My faith and my trust is in youfrom this moment forward, amen.
  • 00:21:51.800 --> 00:21:59.007
  • You know, itreally is that simple.
  • 00:21:59.040 --> 00:22:01.209
  • Jesus did the hard part.
  • 00:22:01.243 --> 00:22:02.544
  • All we simply do is receivethe free gift of salvation.
  • 00:22:02.577 --> 00:22:05.981
  • If you prayed along with me,you are now a child of God.
  • 00:22:06.014 --> 00:22:08.150
  • Welcome home andwelcome to the family.
  • 00:22:08.183 --> 00:22:10.585
  • And I really wanna invite you toemail me at the address on your
  • 00:22:10.619 --> 00:22:13.188
  • screen and I'll send you my freebook called "The Power of a New
  • 00:22:13.221 --> 00:22:15.791
  • Life" to take you throughthe next steps of your
  • 00:22:15.824 --> 00:22:18.059
  • victorious walk with God.
  • 00:22:18.093 --> 00:22:19.795
  • And today, I've been talkingabout how gratitude changes it
  • 00:22:19.828 --> 00:22:23.198
  • all and how thankfulness is thegateway to the most important
  • 00:22:23.231 --> 00:22:26.735
  • things we all need inour lives: our happiness,
  • 00:22:26.768 --> 00:22:29.638
  • the miraculous, and our purpose.
  • 00:22:29.671 --> 00:22:32.140
  • You see, when we rememberwhat God has done for us,
  • 00:22:32.174 --> 00:22:34.309
  • it causes us to be thankful.
  • 00:22:34.342 --> 00:22:35.677
  • David said, "Forgetnone of his benefits."
  • 00:22:35.710 --> 00:22:38.113
  • And then he says, "Hesatisfies us with good things."
  • 00:22:38.146 --> 00:22:41.616
  • In other words, when we realizeall the good things he has done
  • 00:22:41.650 --> 00:22:44.519
  • for us, we are satisfied.
  • 00:22:44.553 --> 00:22:47.189
  • Jeremiah went on to say, "Happyis the man who trusts in the
  • 00:22:47.222 --> 00:22:49.991
  • Lord and whosetrust is the Lord."
  • 00:22:50.025 --> 00:22:52.060
  • You see,happiness is God's idea.
  • 00:22:52.093 --> 00:22:53.995
  • And thankfulness is also thegateway to happiness and it's
  • 00:22:54.029 --> 00:22:57.199
  • the gateway to the miraculous.
  • 00:22:57.232 --> 00:22:58.867
  • When Jesus took theloaves, he gave thanks.
  • 00:22:58.900 --> 00:23:01.203
  • And what's the nextthing that happened?
  • 00:23:01.236 --> 00:23:02.938
  • There was amiraculous multiplication.
  • 00:23:02.971 --> 00:23:05.373
  • That's the power of thanks.
  • 00:23:05.407 --> 00:23:06.741
  • And then of course, thankfulnessis a gateway to our purpose.
  • 00:23:06.775 --> 00:23:10.445
  • This is the will of God.In everything, give thanks.
  • 00:23:10.479 --> 00:23:13.081
  • Thanks launches us intoour God-given purpose
  • 00:23:13.114 --> 00:23:15.984
  • and his will for our lives.
  • 00:23:16.017 --> 00:23:17.385
  • Now, before I finish today, Iwant you to know something and I
  • 00:23:17.419 --> 00:23:20.956
  • want you to be a part ofsomething really special.
