  • Gregory Dickow: So, there aresome things that we have
  • 00:00:52.709 --> 00:00:54.043
  • to conquer to move forwardin our destiny.
  • 00:00:54.077 --> 00:00:57.080
  • One of them is we must conquerour past.
  • 00:00:57.113 --> 00:00:59.582
  • We must realize that our pastdoes not control us.
  • 00:00:59.616 --> 00:01:02.218
  • Our past cannot defeat us.
  • 00:01:02.252 --> 00:01:03.853
  • Our past does not have--determine our future.
  • 00:01:03.887 --> 00:01:06.756
  • We have to come to gripswith the fact that Jesus dealt
  • 00:01:06.789 --> 00:01:09.392
  • with our past by dying for usand saying, "Your past is over.
  • 00:01:09.425 --> 00:01:13.796
  • The old things are passed away.
  • 00:01:13.830 --> 00:01:15.298
  • All things have become new."
  • 00:01:15.331 --> 00:01:16.666
  • You say, "Well, if all thingshave become new, then why do I
  • 00:01:16.699 --> 00:01:18.835
  • keep having the same habits?
  • 00:01:18.868 --> 00:01:20.203
  • Why do I keep thinking the samethoughts?
  • 00:01:20.236 --> 00:01:21.538
  • Why do I keep strugglingwith the same things?
  • 00:01:21.571 --> 00:01:23.473
  • Why do I keep reachingthe same ceilings?"
  • 00:01:23.506 --> 00:01:27.310
  • And that's because we haveto deal with our soul, which
  • 00:01:27.343 --> 00:01:30.246
  • we'll get to in a moment.
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:31.614
  • But you've got to realize thatyour past is conquered.
  • 00:01:31.648 --> 00:01:34.017
  • Your past has been defeated.
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:35.885
  • It's been removed.
  • 00:01:35.919 --> 00:01:37.253
  • You don't have to live inshame anymore.
  • 00:01:37.287 --> 00:01:38.988
  • You don't have to live inguilt anymore.
  • 00:01:39.022 --> 00:01:40.690
  • You don't have to look backat your past and go, "I wish
  • 00:01:40.723 --> 00:01:43.226
  • that wouldn't happen."
  • 00:01:43.259 --> 00:01:44.561
  • No, you invite God intoyour past.
  • 00:01:44.594 --> 00:01:46.329
  • Even though God can't changeyour past, he can change your
  • 00:01:46.362 --> 00:01:49.032
  • perspective of it.
  • 00:01:49.065 --> 00:01:50.366
  • You can't change your past, youcan change how you look at it.
  • 00:01:50.400 --> 00:01:53.369
  • You can change how you utilizeyour past.
  • 00:01:53.403 --> 00:01:55.338
  • You can change how you useyour past.
  • 00:01:55.371 --> 00:01:57.173
  • You can change how you leverageyour past.
  • 00:01:57.207 --> 00:01:59.309
  • You can say, "You know what?
  • 00:01:59.342 --> 00:02:00.677
  • I was abused as a child.
  • 00:02:00.710 --> 00:02:02.011
  • Now God's healing me, and Lord,I'm gonna let you use me and I'm
  • 00:02:02.045 --> 00:02:05.181
  • going to let you to use whathappened to me to help bring
  • 00:02:05.215 --> 00:02:07.483
  • other children out of that,to help deliver other people,
  • 00:02:07.517 --> 00:02:10.186
  • to help notice it if it'shappening, to help blow
  • 00:02:10.220 --> 00:02:12.989
  • the whistle if it's happeningin somebody else's life,
  • 00:02:13.022 --> 00:02:15.124
  • or to help somebody heal from itbecause I've learned to
  • 00:02:15.158 --> 00:02:17.594
  • heal from it."
  • 00:02:17.627 --> 00:02:18.928
  • You see, you can use your pastin a positive way.
  • 00:02:18.962 --> 00:02:21.164
  • Your past does not confine you,your past does not define you,
  • 00:02:21.197 --> 00:02:24.867
  • and your past does not haveto conquer you.
  • 00:02:24.901 --> 00:02:27.070
  • You can conquer your past,in Jesus's name, amen.
  • 00:02:27.103 --> 00:02:30.006
  • The second thing we talkedabout was we need to conquer
  • 00:02:30.039 --> 00:02:33.042
  • our pain.
  • 00:02:33.076 --> 00:02:34.377
  • God created us to conquerour pain.
  • 00:02:34.410 --> 00:02:35.745
  • In other words, there are a lotof things that hurt us in life.
  • 00:02:35.778 --> 00:02:37.947
  • There are a lot of things thatcause sorrow and pain in life,
  • 00:02:37.981 --> 00:02:40.917
  • but we can conquer our pain whenwe allow God to heal it, when we
  • 00:02:40.950 --> 00:02:45.788
  • forgive others for inflictingit, when we're willing to pull
  • 00:02:45.822 --> 00:02:48.925
  • the knife out of our side thatpeople have put--thrust inside
  • 00:02:48.958 --> 00:02:51.995
  • of us, and say, "You know what?
  • 00:02:52.028 --> 00:02:53.363
  • Yes, I've been betrayed.
  • 00:02:53.396 --> 00:02:54.697
  • Yes, I've been lied to.
  • 00:02:54.731 --> 00:02:56.065
  • Yes, I've been mistreatedor mishandled.
  • 00:02:56.099 --> 00:02:59.002
  • But I am going to conquer mypain by trusting God to heal me.
  • 00:02:59.035 --> 00:03:03.640
  • I'm going to conquer my painby forgiving those that
  • 00:03:03.673 --> 00:03:05.775
  • inflicted me.
  • 00:03:05.808 --> 00:03:07.110
  • And I'm gonna conquer my painby realizing that the power
  • 00:03:07.143 --> 00:03:10.647
  • of God will--that my purposeand my destiny will power me
  • 00:03:10.680 --> 00:03:15.251
  • through my pain, that I can gothrough anything when I know
  • 00:03:15.285 --> 00:03:18.421
  • there's a purpose.
  • 00:03:18.454 --> 00:03:19.789
  • When I know there's a purpose."
  • 00:03:19.822 --> 00:03:21.424
  • So, the third thing that God hascalled us to conquer is
  • 00:03:21.457 --> 00:03:26.529
  • to conquer ourself.
  • 00:03:26.562 --> 00:03:28.264
  • To conquer ourself.To conquer ourself.
  • 00:03:28.298 --> 00:03:31.501
  • Now, when we talkabout conquering self, 'cause
  • 00:03:31.534 --> 00:03:33.303
  • the Bible talks about thisa lot, Jesus says,
  • 00:03:33.336 --> 00:03:35.672
  • "Deny your self."
  • 00:03:35.705 --> 00:03:37.674
  • The Bible says,"Crucify your self."
  • 00:03:37.707 --> 00:03:39.442
  • The Bible says, "Denyyour self," multiple times
  • 00:03:39.475 --> 00:03:42.679
  • throughout Scripture.
  • 00:03:42.712 --> 00:03:44.113
  • He's not--now, I want to becareful not to focus
  • 00:03:44.147 --> 00:03:48.318
  • on selfishness, 'cause that'snot what we mean by
  • 00:03:48.351 --> 00:03:52.388
  • conquering self.
  • 00:03:52.422 --> 00:03:54.057
  • We're not referringto selfishness.
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:55.425
  • There's nothing wrongwith conquering selfishness.
  • 00:03:55.458 --> 00:03:56.759
  • It's way better to be generousthan to be selfish.
  • 00:03:56.793 --> 00:03:59.028
  • Can anybody say amen?
  • 00:03:59.062 --> 00:04:00.830
  • But when we're talkin'about conquering self, we're
  • 00:04:00.863 --> 00:04:02.899
  • talking about there--If thiscan help you get--understand
  • 00:04:02.932 --> 00:04:08.071
  • this, that for every one of usthere are two versions of us,
  • 00:04:08.104 --> 00:04:12.208
  • every human being.
  • 00:04:12.241 --> 00:04:13.576
  • There are two versions of everyhuman being.
  • 00:04:13.609 --> 00:04:15.378
  • There is God's version of youand then there's what life has--
  • 00:04:15.411 --> 00:04:19.582
  • what life's version of you, whatlife has carved into your soul,
  • 00:04:19.615 --> 00:04:23.886
  • what people have carvedinto your soul, what your
  • 00:04:23.920 --> 00:04:25.855
  • parents carved into your DNA,what certain chemicals produced
  • 00:04:25.888 --> 00:04:30.259
  • in your life, what certainchromosomes produced in your
  • 00:04:30.293 --> 00:04:33.229
  • life, what certain educationproduced in your life.
  • 00:04:33.262 --> 00:04:36.733
  • So, there--what certain habits,or certain proclivities,
  • 00:04:36.766 --> 00:04:41.237
  • or belief systems that yougrew up with.
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:44.173
  • The reason people are racist,sexist, some of these other
  • 00:04:44.207 --> 00:04:49.445
  • things is because that wasprogrammed in their upbringing
  • 00:04:49.479 --> 00:04:53.783
  • by the things they subjectedthemselves to, or the things
  • 00:04:53.816 --> 00:04:56.986
  • their parents subjected them to,or the choices that they made
  • 00:04:57.019 --> 00:05:00.857
  • based on the stimuli of theirenvironment.
  • 00:05:00.890 --> 00:05:03.593
  • I don't mean to get too allpsychological
  • 00:05:03.626 --> 00:05:05.294
  • and psychoanalytical here,but if this makes sense, we have
  • 00:05:05.328 --> 00:05:10.266
  • to realize that our soul isa byproduct of our environment.
  • 00:05:10.299 --> 00:05:15.338
  • Our soul is a byproduct of whatpeople have done to us.
  • 00:05:15.371 --> 00:05:18.608
  • Our soul is also a byproduct--it's a mixed bag.
  • 00:05:18.641 --> 00:05:21.377
  • Our soul is a byproduct of ourpersonality, the pure
  • 00:05:21.411 --> 00:05:25.782
  • personality in your lifeand the twisted personality
  • 00:05:25.815 --> 00:05:28.317
  • that's in your life, and it'sa combination of all those
  • 00:05:28.351 --> 00:05:30.453
  • things mixed up together.
  • 00:05:30.486 --> 00:05:32.822
  • And that's what you--and that'sthe condition of your soul,
  • 00:05:32.855 --> 00:05:36.325
  • and that's why God doesn't giveyou a new one, 'cause your
  • 00:05:36.359 --> 00:05:39.162
  • personality is caught up inthat mix.
  • 00:05:39.195 --> 00:05:42.432
  • God doesn't give you a new soulbecause your memories are
  • 00:05:42.465 --> 00:05:45.501
  • in that mix.
  • 00:05:45.535 --> 00:05:46.936
  • God doesn't give you a new soulbecause all the things you've
  • 00:05:46.969 --> 00:05:50.106
  • learned are in that mix.
  • 00:05:50.139 --> 00:05:52.442
  • And God doesn't want us to haveto relearn everybody's name,
  • 00:05:52.475 --> 00:05:55.278
  • relearn our family, relearn howto brush our teeth, relearn how
  • 00:05:55.311 --> 00:05:59.081
  • to walk, relearn how to talk.
  • 00:05:59.115 --> 00:06:00.783
  • God doesn't want us to do that,so he leaves our soul in
  • 00:06:00.817 --> 00:06:04.554
  • its condition.
  • 00:06:04.587 --> 00:06:05.888
  • When we get born again, ourspirit is born again, but our
  • 00:06:05.922 --> 00:06:08.090
  • soul is left in the samecondition.
  • 00:06:08.124 --> 00:06:11.594
  • Only left to us to renew ourminds so that God can transform
  • 00:06:11.627 --> 00:06:16.599
  • our soul, and operate in oursoul, and do what we all quoted
  • 00:06:16.632 --> 00:06:20.303
  • when we were little kidsin Psalm 23, restore our soul.
  • 00:06:20.336 --> 00:06:24.841
  • He restores my soul.
  • 00:06:24.874 --> 00:06:26.876
  • He restores my soul.
  • 00:06:27.610 --> 00:06:29.378
  • How does he restore my soul?
  • 00:06:29.412 --> 00:06:31.380
  • Well, if you just look at verse1 and 2 of Psalm 23, the most
  • 00:06:31.414 --> 00:06:35.518
  • famous passage of Scripturemaybe besides John 3:16, "The
  • 00:06:35.551 --> 00:06:39.655
  • Lord is my Shepherd, I shall notwant.
  • 00:06:39.689 --> 00:06:41.390
  • He makes me lie down in greenpastures and he leads me beside
  • 00:06:41.424 --> 00:06:46.329
  • still waters."
  • 00:06:46.362 --> 00:06:47.663
  • Now, there's nothingin the Bible that has more
  • 00:06:47.697 --> 00:06:50.399
  • references to green pasturesand waters more than the Word
  • 00:06:50.433 --> 00:06:55.538
  • of God.
  • 00:06:55.571 --> 00:06:56.873
  • The Word of God in the Bible issymbolized as green pastures.
  • 00:06:56.906 --> 00:07:01.611
  • The grass withers and flowerfades, but the Word of God
  • 00:07:01.644 --> 00:07:04.680
  • abides forever.
  • 00:07:04.714 --> 00:07:06.015
  • There's nothing in the Biblethat is compared to grass
  • 00:07:06.048 --> 00:07:08.918
  • and water more than the Wordof God.
  • 00:07:08.951 --> 00:07:11.988
  • So, he leads me beside, he makesme lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:07:12.021 --> 00:07:16.893
  • You know, a sheep isin a pasture.
  • 00:07:16.926 --> 00:07:21.564
  • And so in church, when a churchis teaching you God's Word, you
  • 00:07:21.597 --> 00:07:26.869
  • are lying down in greenpastures.
  • 00:07:26.903 --> 00:07:30.339
  • You know what's happeningright now?
  • 00:07:30.373 --> 00:07:32.174
  • In this very moment, God isrestoring another area of
  • 00:07:32.208 --> 00:07:36.646
  • your soul.
  • 00:07:36.679 --> 00:07:38.381
  • You see, you don't see it allright now.
  • 00:07:38.414 --> 00:07:41.150
  • You might just see one thinggoin' on in your life,
  • 00:07:41.183 --> 00:07:43.753
  • but that's just one pieceof a puzzle.
  • 00:07:43.786 --> 00:07:46.522
  • But don't worry because Godknows what he's doing, and if we
  • 00:07:46.556 --> 00:07:52.128
  • just keep looking at the pictureof what God says we are,
  • 00:07:52.161 --> 00:07:55.765
  • and then go back and say, "Okay,this is a piece.
  • 00:07:55.798 --> 00:07:58.334
  • This is happening in my liferight now."
  • 00:07:58.367 --> 00:08:00.236
  • It's a part of this puzzle.
  • 00:08:00.269 --> 00:08:02.038
  • It's okay.
  • 00:08:02.071 --> 00:08:03.406
  • It's comin' together.
  • 00:08:03.439 --> 00:08:04.740
  • It's come--God knows whathe's doin.'
  • 00:08:04.774 --> 00:08:06.275
  • God put all the pieces in there.
  • 00:08:06.309 --> 00:08:07.843
  • And if there's a missing piece,it'll show up tomorrow.
  • 00:08:07.877 --> 00:08:10.413
  • It'll show up the next day.
  • 00:08:10.446 --> 00:08:11.948
  • It'll show up.
  • 00:08:11.981 --> 00:08:13.316
  • I'm going to trust God, justwork with what I got right now,
  • 00:08:13.349 --> 00:08:15.084
  • right?
  • 00:08:15.117 --> 00:08:16.752
  • Okay, to conquer yourself--
  • 00:08:16.786 --> 00:08:23.993
  • to conqueryourself is not
  • 00:08:24.627 --> 00:08:27.630
  • to conquer eating habitsand wrong desires.
  • 00:08:27.663 --> 00:08:34.403
  • To conquer yourself meansto capture and take captive
  • 00:08:34.437 --> 00:08:39.976
  • the wrong view of yourselfand instead adopt God's view
  • 00:08:40.009 --> 00:08:45.147
  • of you.
  • 00:08:45.181 --> 00:08:46.515
  • God's version of you versuslife's version of you.
  • 00:08:46.549 --> 00:08:50.987
  • Life made you into--life mademe into a scaredy-cat when I was
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:54.256
  • in eighth grade like I told youthe story last week.
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.325
  • I'd hide behind the couch so Iwouldn't have to go to debate
  • 00:08:56.359 --> 00:08:59.028
  • class in eighth grade.
  • 00:08:59.061 --> 00:09:00.830
  • Life made me afraid.
  • 00:09:00.863 --> 00:09:02.565
  • Life may be insecure.
  • 00:09:02.598 --> 00:09:04.667
  • But God's version of me wasto preach the gospel.
  • 00:09:04.700 --> 00:09:07.703
  • God's version of me was tohelp others.
  • 00:09:07.737 --> 00:09:09.872
  • God's version of me wasto conquer that fear so I could
  • 00:09:09.905 --> 00:09:12.708
  • conquer--help other peopleconquer what's happening
  • 00:09:12.742 --> 00:09:15.778
  • in their life.
  • 00:09:15.811 --> 00:09:17.146
  • And until I conquered that, Icouldn't really help anybody
  • 00:09:17.179 --> 00:09:20.016
  • unless I was focused on at leastconquering that version of me
  • 00:09:20.049 --> 00:09:24.587
  • that was not God's versionof me.
  • 00:09:24.620 --> 00:09:27.123
  • Boy, how can I put this?
  • 00:09:27.156 --> 00:09:28.591
  • I love to quote this Scripture.
  • 00:09:28.624 --> 00:09:30.493
  • I wasn't planning on it,but I'll take it--I'll take you
  • 00:09:30.526 --> 00:09:32.595
  • to it in Judges chapter 11,verse 1.
  • 00:09:32.628 --> 00:09:35.431
  • Look at what he says.
  • 00:09:35.464 --> 00:09:36.799
  • I'll show you the two versionsof you.
  • 00:09:36.832 --> 00:09:39.001
  • "Now Jephthah the Gileadite wasa valiant warrior.
  • 00:09:39.035 --> 00:09:44.440
  • He was a valiant warrior, but hewas the son of a harlot."
  • 00:09:44.473 --> 00:09:49.211
  • And I remember reading thisyears ago and thinking, "Whoa,
  • 00:09:49.245 --> 00:09:51.947
  • that's powerful."
  • 00:09:51.981 --> 00:09:53.282
  • And God began to reveal to me,he said, "See, son, in this
  • 00:09:53.315 --> 00:09:55.618
  • verse are the two versionsof Jephthah.
  • 00:09:55.651 --> 00:09:59.021
  • My version of Jephthah."
  • 00:09:59.055 --> 00:10:00.556
  • God's version of Jephthah isa valiant warrior.
  • 00:10:00.589 --> 00:10:03.559
  • Now, let me explainsomething to ya.
  • 00:10:03.592 --> 00:10:05.127
  • He hasn't even been ina fight yet.
  • 00:10:05.161 --> 00:10:07.129
  • We don't see him gettingin a fight until later in this
  • 00:10:07.163 --> 00:10:09.765
  • chapter and later in the bookof Judges.
  • 00:10:09.799 --> 00:10:12.501
  • We don't see him in a fightprior to Judges chapter 11,
  • 00:10:12.535 --> 00:10:15.304
  • verse 1.
  • 00:10:15.337 --> 00:10:16.639
  • God calls us something before weever see ourselves as that.
  • 00:10:16.672 --> 00:10:20.710
  • God calls us something before weever experience it.
  • 00:10:20.743 --> 00:10:24.113
  • Just like God calls you morethan a conqueror, God called
  • 00:10:24.146 --> 00:10:28.050
  • Jephthah a mighty warrior whenhe hadn't even been in
  • 00:10:28.084 --> 00:10:31.320
  • a fight yet.
  • 00:10:31.353 --> 00:10:32.688
  • He's a valiant warrior.
  • 00:10:32.722 --> 00:10:34.023
  • That's God's version of him,but life's version of Jephthah
  • 00:10:34.056 --> 00:10:38.994
  • is what?
  • 00:10:39.028 --> 00:10:40.329
  • The son of a prostitute.
  • 00:10:40.362 --> 00:10:41.997
  • He's the son of a prostitute.
  • 00:10:42.031 --> 00:10:43.833
  • So, he has to choose in hislife, just like we have
  • 00:10:43.866 --> 00:10:47.203
  • to choose in our lives, whichversion of ourselves are we
  • 00:10:47.236 --> 00:10:51.340
  • going to identify with, God'sversion of us or life's version
  • 00:10:51.373 --> 00:10:56.011
  • of us?
  • 00:10:56.045 --> 00:10:57.346
  • God says you're more thana conqueror, but life has
  • 00:10:57.379 --> 00:11:00.416
  • conquered you and made youa victim.
  • 00:11:00.449 --> 00:11:03.285
  • You've got a disability.
  • 00:11:03.319 --> 00:11:05.020
  • You've got a disease.
  • 00:11:05.054 --> 00:11:06.989
  • You've got--you've had racismshown towards you you've.
  • 00:11:07.022 --> 00:11:10.659
  • Had sexism shown towards you.
  • 00:11:10.693 --> 00:11:12.228
  • You've had--you've had peoplemistreat you.
  • 00:11:12.261 --> 00:11:15.397
  • Maybe you've been abused.
  • 00:11:15.431 --> 00:11:16.732
  • Maybe you've been--maybesomething worse has happened.
  • 00:11:16.766 --> 00:11:19.301
  • Maybe you had a loved one gothrough something that you--
  • 00:11:19.335 --> 00:11:22.238
  • that you feel guilty over,or various thousand--myriad
  • 00:11:22.271 --> 00:11:27.576
  • of things that could havehappened to you and has shaped
  • 00:11:27.610 --> 00:11:31.280
  • you into a limited versionof you.
  • 00:11:31.313 --> 00:11:36.218
  • And you have to choose today,are you gonna be what God calls
  • 00:11:36.252 --> 00:11:39.588
  • you, a valiant warrior, or areyou gonna be what life
  • 00:11:39.622 --> 00:11:42.558
  • calls you?
  • 00:11:42.591 --> 00:11:44.226
  • You're just the son of a harlot.
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:45.594
  • Oh, he's just the sonof a prostitute.
  • 00:11:45.628 --> 00:11:46.929
  • Oh, he can't amount to anything.Look at who his mother is.
  • 00:11:46.962 --> 00:11:48.831
  • He can't amount to anything.Look at who his father is.
  • 00:11:48.864 --> 00:11:50.800
  • He can't amount to anything.His mother's a harlot.
  • 00:11:50.833 --> 00:11:52.802
  • He's never gonna be anythingbecause look at where
  • 00:11:52.835 --> 00:11:54.270
  • he came from.
  • 00:11:54.303 --> 00:11:55.704
  • He's never--she's never gonnabe anything because look
  • 00:11:55.738 --> 00:11:57.173
  • at her color.
  • 00:11:57.206 --> 00:11:58.574
  • Look at her skin.Look at her size.
  • 00:11:58.607 --> 00:12:00.042
  • Look at her height.Look at her weight.
  • 00:12:00.075 --> 00:12:01.477
  • Look at her nose.Look at her ears.
  • 00:12:01.510 --> 00:12:02.978
  • Look at her face.Look at--look at this.
  • 00:12:03.012 --> 00:12:04.780
  • Look at his job.Look at his experience.
  • 00:12:04.814 --> 00:12:06.315
  • He didn't go to college.Or look at what college.
  • 00:12:06.348 --> 00:12:08.417
  • He didn't--he went to college,but it wasn't that good and he
  • 00:12:08.450 --> 00:12:09.819
  • didn't do that well.
  • 00:12:09.852 --> 00:12:11.253
  • And look at his businesses,they've all failed.
  • 00:12:11.287 --> 00:12:12.888
  • Well, that's what they saidabout Albert Einstein.
  • 00:12:12.922 --> 00:12:14.523
  • He failed 7.000 times, and thenon the 7.001st experiment he
  • 00:12:14.557 --> 00:12:18.494
  • discovered the powerof electricity.
  • 00:12:18.527 --> 00:12:20.529
  • It was all--it had alwaysexisted, but he tapped
  • 00:12:20.563 --> 00:12:22.932
  • into the power of it and learnedto harness it.
  • 00:12:22.965 --> 00:12:24.934
  • Let me tell ya something,Colonel Sanders, one
  • 00:12:24.967 --> 00:12:28.704
  • of the great generalsin history,
  • 00:12:28.737 --> 00:12:37.646
  • do you know that he triedto sell his recipe
  • 00:12:41.050 --> 00:12:43.185
  • to a thousand different people
  • 00:12:43.219 --> 00:12:45.421
  • and a thousand differentbusinesses turned him down?
  • 00:12:45.454 --> 00:12:48.023
  • Until somebody finally said yesand amen, and whoever said that
  • 00:12:48.057 --> 00:12:53.262
  • heard from God.
  • 00:12:53.295 --> 00:12:55.898
  • Because where would any of us bewithout KFC?
  • 00:12:55.931 --> 00:13:02.838
  • Amen, we all got that deep down,home cooking feeling.
  • 00:13:02.872 --> 00:13:12.681
  • Original recipe, thank youvery much.
  • 00:13:12.715 --> 00:13:17.186
  • And the mac and cheese,man, coleslaw.
  • 00:13:17.219 --> 00:13:21.123
  • Anybody getting hungrylike I am?
  • 00:13:21.156 --> 00:13:22.725
  • Man, I'll tell ya.
  • 00:13:22.758 --> 00:13:24.093
  • But what's my point?
  • 00:13:24.126 --> 00:13:25.427
  • My point is that he couldn't letwhat the world said he couldn't
  • 00:13:25.461 --> 00:13:31.133
  • do, what people said no to, hedidn't let that determine who he
  • 00:13:31.166 --> 00:13:37.806
  • was going to be and what versionof himself he was going
  • 00:13:37.840 --> 00:13:41.977
  • to identify with.
  • 00:13:42.011 --> 00:13:44.647
  • And I want to encourage youtoday, that's what I mean
  • 00:13:44.680 --> 00:13:48.851
  • by conquering self.
  • 00:13:48.884 --> 00:13:50.586
  • It's not conqueringsinful habits.
  • 00:13:50.619 --> 00:13:54.857
  • That's something Jesus alreadydefeated for you and you have
  • 00:13:54.890 --> 00:13:57.893
  • to identify with Christ,but it's conquering that wrong
  • 00:13:57.927 --> 00:14:01.997
  • version of you, that otherversion, that earthly version
  • 00:14:02.031 --> 00:14:06.035
  • versus the heavenly versionof how God looks at you.
  • 00:14:06.068 --> 00:14:09.338
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:14:09.371 --> 00:14:11.140
  • So, in conquering yourself,remember your soul is made
  • 00:14:11.173 --> 00:14:16.178
  • up of three parts.
  • 00:14:16.211 --> 00:14:17.613
  • Your soul--your life is madeup of three parts: spirit, soul,
  • 00:14:17.646 --> 00:14:20.416
  • and body.
  • 00:14:20.449 --> 00:14:21.784
  • But your soul is also madeup of three parts.
  • 00:14:21.817 --> 00:14:23.686
  • It's the mind to think,the heart to feel, our emotions,
  • 00:14:23.719 --> 00:14:28.557
  • the heart to feel, and the willto choose.
  • 00:14:28.590 --> 00:14:32.261
  • And so, when we talkabout conquering self, I'm
  • 00:14:32.294 --> 00:14:35.597
  • talking about thosethree things.
  • 00:14:35.631 --> 00:14:37.666
  • Conquering self means conqueringyour thoughts, conquering your
  • 00:14:37.700 --> 00:14:42.471
  • emotions, and conquering yourwill or your decisions.
  • 00:14:42.504 --> 00:14:48.177
  • And the only way to conquerany of those three things is
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:52.514
  • God's way.
  • 00:14:52.548 --> 00:14:53.849
  • It's to--it's to renew yourmind to God's way of thinking,
  • 00:14:53.882 --> 00:14:57.820
  • God's way of handling youremotions, and God's way
  • 00:14:57.853 --> 00:15:01.757
  • of making decisions.
  • 00:15:01.790 --> 00:15:03.559
  • And so, if you will walkout of here today knowing this,
  • 00:15:03.592 --> 00:15:06.462
  • that conquering self isthe greatest path
  • 00:15:06.495 --> 00:15:09.565
  • and the quickest path toyour destiny.
  • 00:15:09.598 --> 00:15:11.166
  • He who conquers himself cannotbe conquered.
  • 00:15:11.200 --> 00:15:14.970
  • David or Solomon saidin Proverbs chapter 16, verse
  • 00:15:15.004 --> 00:15:17.973
  • 32, he said--it says, "He whois slow to anger is better than
  • 00:15:18.007 --> 00:15:22.044
  • the mighty, and he who conquershimself, or he who rules
  • 00:15:22.077 --> 00:15:27.816
  • himself," he's talking about hissoul here when he uses the word
  • 00:15:27.850 --> 00:15:31.053
  • spirit, "he who rules himself isbetter than he who captures
  • 00:15:31.086 --> 00:15:35.491
  • a city."
  • 00:15:35.524 --> 00:15:36.859
  • So if you were to capturea city, it would pale
  • 00:15:36.892 --> 00:15:38.927
  • in comparison to you conqueringyour soul or conquering self.
  • 00:15:38.961 --> 00:15:42.831
  • So, you can rule anything if youcan rule yourself.
  • 00:15:42.865 --> 00:15:47.069
  • If you can rule yourself, you'llhandle your money better.
  • 00:15:47.102 --> 00:15:49.471
  • If you can rule yourself, you'llhandle your health better.
  • 00:15:49.505 --> 00:15:51.407
  • If you can rule--rule yourself,you'll handle your
  • 00:15:51.440 --> 00:15:54.176
  • relationships better.
  • 00:15:54.209 --> 00:15:55.511
  • If you rule yourself, you canconquer anything.
  • 00:15:55.544 --> 00:15:57.046
  • You can live victoriously inany area of life.
  • 00:15:57.079 --> 00:16:00.015
  • You will step into your destiny,into a greater realm
  • 00:16:00.049 --> 00:16:02.885
  • and a greater dimension of yourpurpose, by conquering self.
  • 00:16:02.918 --> 00:16:05.587
  • We've gotta stop ignoring this.
  • 00:16:05.621 --> 00:16:07.356
  • We gotta stop ignore--Christians gotta stop tryin'
  • 00:16:07.389 --> 00:16:09.258
  • to get the victory in some otherarea when God's simply saying,
  • 00:16:09.291 --> 00:16:13.028
  • "Conquer yourself."
  • 00:16:13.062 --> 00:16:14.530
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:16:14.563 --> 00:16:15.898
  • It means to conquer your thoughtlife, it means to master your
  • 00:16:15.931 --> 00:16:18.700
  • emotions, and it means to followSpirit-led decisions to make
  • 00:16:18.734 --> 00:16:23.539
  • Spirit-led, Word-centered,Bible-centered decisions
  • 00:16:23.572 --> 00:16:27.943
  • or choices.
  • 00:16:27.976 --> 00:16:29.278
  • This is what it means to conquerself, the mind to think,
  • 00:16:29.311 --> 00:16:33.449
  • the heart to feel, and the willto decide.
  • 00:16:33.482 --> 00:16:37.052
  • So, conquering self meansconquering our thought life,
  • 00:16:37.086 --> 00:16:40.422
  • conquering our emotions,mastering our emotions, and it
  • 00:16:40.456 --> 00:16:44.259
  • means to guide--be guidedor governed by Spirit-led
  • 00:16:44.293 --> 00:16:51.366
  • decisions, Spirit-led choices,rather than choices based on
  • 00:16:51.400 --> 00:16:56.271
  • our flesh or choices basedon whatever the world is
  • 00:16:56.305 --> 00:17:00.909
  • telling us.
  • 00:17:00.943 --> 00:17:02.277
  • Are you still with me?
  • 00:17:02.311 --> 00:17:03.712
  • If you will get ahold of this,that you have the power
  • 00:17:03.745 --> 00:17:06.782
  • to control your thought life.
  • 00:17:06.815 --> 00:17:08.717
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:17:08.750 --> 00:17:10.119
  • With God's Word.
  • 00:17:10.152 --> 00:17:11.820
  • Replace negative thinkingwith God's way of thinking.
  • 00:17:11.854 --> 00:17:16.892
  • Speak God's Word.
  • 00:17:16.925 --> 00:17:18.827
  • The tongue is more powerful thanthe mind.
  • 00:17:18.861 --> 00:17:24.766
  • What I mean by that is they'reboth very powerful in their own
  • 00:17:24.800 --> 00:17:27.769
  • right, but when you speakout loud, your thoughts submit
  • 00:17:27.803 --> 00:17:33.041
  • to whatever you're saying.
  • 00:17:33.075 --> 00:17:34.910
  • Well, we use this example.
  • 00:17:34.943 --> 00:17:36.278
  • I've used it many times.
  • 00:17:36.311 --> 00:17:37.613
  • You've heard me use it a milliontimes and you know what to do.
  • 00:17:37.646 --> 00:17:39.281
  • I'm going to ask you,and silently, when I say go, I'm
  • 00:17:39.314 --> 00:17:41.717
  • gonna ask you to silently countto ten in your mind.
  • 00:17:41.750 --> 00:17:44.086
  • In your mind count to 10silently as soon as I say go,
  • 00:17:44.119 --> 00:17:47.723
  • and wait for my nextinstruction, all right?
  • 00:17:47.756 --> 00:17:49.925
  • We're gonna--you're gonna countto ten in your mind silently.
  • 00:17:49.958 --> 00:17:52.794
  • Ready, go.
  • 00:17:52.828 --> 00:17:55.564
  • Now say your name out loud.
  • 00:17:55.597 --> 00:17:57.966
  • What happened when you said yourname out loud?
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:18:00.435
  • You stopped counting.
  • 00:18:00.469 --> 00:18:01.770
  • Why?
  • 00:18:01.803 --> 00:18:03.138
  • Because your words took yourthoughts captive.
  • 00:18:03.172 --> 00:18:05.474
  • Your words stopped the trainof thinking.
  • 00:18:05.507 --> 00:18:09.878
  • Your words stopped the trainof thinking.
  • 00:18:09.912 --> 00:18:12.281
  • So, when you--when all thesethoughts come to you,
  • 00:18:12.314 --> 00:18:14.349
  • "You're a failure.
  • 00:18:14.383 --> 00:18:15.684
  • You're a loser," you declare,"I'm the head and not the tail.
  • 00:18:15.717 --> 00:18:18.420
  • I'm above only and not beneath.
  • 00:18:18.453 --> 00:18:19.755
  • I'm blessed comin'in and blessed goin' out.
  • 00:18:19.788 --> 00:18:21.356
  • I'm more than a conqueror.
  • 00:18:21.390 --> 00:18:22.691
  • I can do all things throughChrist who strengthens me."
  • 00:18:22.724 --> 00:18:25.794
  • You might not say it inthat volume.
  • 00:18:25.827 --> 00:18:27.129
  • You might not say it inthat tone.
  • 00:18:27.162 --> 00:18:28.864
  • You say it however you wantto say it, but say it, because
  • 00:18:28.897 --> 00:18:30.799
  • when you say it, the trainof thinking stops at your
  • 00:18:30.832 --> 00:18:35.270
  • spoken word.
  • 00:18:35.304 --> 00:18:39.975
  • That's how you conqueryour thoughts.
  • 00:18:40.008 --> 00:18:41.643
  • How do you conquer your--masteryour emotions or your feelings?
  • 00:18:41.677 --> 00:18:44.646
  • You take your feelings to God,and be honest.
  • 00:18:44.680 --> 00:18:48.083
  • He already knows, so just--but you have to express it.
  • 00:18:48.116 --> 00:18:51.286
  • You have to vent out.
  • 00:18:51.320 --> 00:18:52.688
  • God can handle it.
  • 00:18:52.721 --> 00:18:54.323
  • I can't handle it if you ventout at me.
  • 00:18:54.356 --> 00:18:57.593
  • Others can't handle it if youvent out towards them.
  • 00:18:57.626 --> 00:19:01.129
  • We respond a certain way.
  • 00:19:01.163 --> 00:19:02.497
  • We get gun shy.
  • 00:19:02.531 --> 00:19:03.832
  • We don't want to haveconversation because if you're
  • 00:19:03.865 --> 00:19:06.168
  • gonna vent again--like, we cantake it once with each other,
  • 00:19:06.201 --> 00:19:09.738
  • but once we start venting allthe time to each other,
  • 00:19:09.771 --> 00:19:11.974
  • that's abusive.
  • 00:19:12.007 --> 00:19:14.576
  • I'm telling you, 'cause noteverybody is a trained therapist
  • 00:19:14.610 --> 00:19:18.780
  • to be able to handle somebodyelse venting.
  • 00:19:18.814 --> 00:19:23.185
  • But God is the ultimate greatphysician, great therapist,
  • 00:19:23.218 --> 00:19:28.857
  • the comforter.
  • 00:19:28.890 --> 00:19:30.192
  • The mind of Christ, the HolySpirit, the one who knows all,
  • 00:19:30.225 --> 00:19:33.061
  • sees all, loves all, forgivesall, he can handle it.
  • 00:19:33.095 --> 00:19:37.299
  • Go to him.Go to him.
  • 00:19:37.332 --> 00:19:39.668
  • If Cain would have goneup vertically, he wouldn't have
  • 00:19:39.701 --> 00:19:41.370
  • gone out horizontally.
  • 00:19:41.403 --> 00:19:42.838
  • He went out in angerhorizontally 'cause he didn't go
  • 00:19:42.871 --> 00:19:44.973
  • with his anger verticallyto God.
  • 00:19:45.007 --> 00:19:47.676
  • You see, that's how you conqueryour emotions.
  • 00:19:47.709 --> 00:19:50.312
  • You be honest about them.
  • 00:19:50.345 --> 00:19:51.780
  • Go to God about them.
  • 00:19:51.813 --> 00:19:53.949
  • You say, "Well, but isn't thata bad confession if I say,
  • 00:19:53.982 --> 00:19:56.918
  • 'Lord, I'm really struggling,'or 'I really want to hurt this
  • 00:19:56.952 --> 00:19:58.887
  • guy,' or 'I really want to getrevenge, or I really wanna do
  • 00:19:58.920 --> 00:20:01.723
  • this, or do that, or do this badthing, or do that bad thing'?"
  • 00:20:01.757 --> 00:20:05.460
  • No, it's not a bad confession,it's a confession to God.
  • 00:20:05.494 --> 00:20:09.197
  • It's confessing to him.
  • 00:20:09.231 --> 00:20:10.699
  • It's admitting how you feelso that he can help you.
  • 00:20:10.732 --> 00:20:14.503
  • What you're doing by admittingit is you're inviting his grace
  • 00:20:14.536 --> 00:20:16.805
  • to help you.
  • 00:20:16.838 --> 00:20:18.140
  • God gives grace to the humble.
  • 00:20:18.173 --> 00:20:19.741
  • God gives grace to the humble,the honest, the truthful,
  • 00:20:19.775 --> 00:20:22.377
  • the being real.
  • 00:20:22.411 --> 00:20:23.912
  • "God, here's how I feel.
  • 00:20:23.945 --> 00:20:25.280
  • I'm not gonna do it.
  • 00:20:25.314 --> 00:20:26.615
  • I don't want to do it, but I gotto express it somehow,
  • 00:20:26.648 --> 00:20:29.151
  • and I'm expressing to you.
  • 00:20:29.184 --> 00:20:30.686
  • Heal me.Deliver me.
  • 00:20:30.719 --> 00:20:32.020
  • Free me.Help me."
  • 00:20:32.054 --> 00:20:34.189
  • How 'bout just something assimple as that?
  • 00:20:34.222 --> 00:20:37.893
  • And then how do you--so that'show you conquer your thoughts.
  • 00:20:37.926 --> 00:20:40.095
  • That's how you conqueror youremotions, master your emotions.
  • 00:20:40.128 --> 00:20:42.597
  • And how do you conquer yourdecisions?
  • 00:20:42.631 --> 00:20:44.333
  • You conquer your decisionsby taking personal
  • 00:20:44.366 --> 00:20:47.202
  • responsibility for your choicesand realize the power of choice.
  • 00:20:47.235 --> 00:20:52.708
  • That people have done thingsto you, there's no doubt
  • 00:20:52.741 --> 00:20:55.277
  • about it.
  • 00:20:55.310 --> 00:20:56.645
  • You have done thingsto yourself.
  • 00:20:56.678 --> 00:20:57.979
  • I've done things to me.I've done things to you.
  • 00:20:58.013 --> 00:21:00.015
  • I've done things to others thatI regret.
  • 00:21:00.048 --> 00:21:02.017
  • You've done things to othersthat you regret.
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:03.385
  • You've done things to yourselfthat you regret.
  • 00:21:03.418 --> 00:21:04.720
  • But nobody has the powerover how you respond.
  • 00:21:04.753 --> 00:21:09.825
  • People have power to do certainthings to you, but they don't
  • 00:21:09.858 --> 00:21:13.395
  • have the power to controland determine your response
  • 00:21:13.428 --> 00:21:18.166
  • or your reaction.
  • 00:21:18.200 --> 00:21:19.601
  • You are in control of that.
  • 00:21:19.634 --> 00:21:21.870
  • You're in control of how yourespond to how you grew up.
  • 00:21:21.903 --> 00:21:24.873
  • You're--look, how you gotin the situation you're in is
  • 00:21:24.906 --> 00:21:28.009
  • probably in part somebody else'sfault, but while you stay
  • 00:21:28.043 --> 00:21:31.646
  • in that situation is yourresponsibility, not
  • 00:21:31.680 --> 00:21:34.916
  • somebody else's.
  • 00:21:34.950 --> 00:21:36.318
  • If somebody hurt you and abusedyou, they have--they are
  • 00:21:36.351 --> 00:21:41.723
  • at blame in many ways, but onlyyou are at blame and responsible
  • 00:21:41.757 --> 00:21:46.595
  • if you stay in that conditionwithout going to God,
  • 00:21:46.628 --> 00:21:50.298
  • without getting help,without telling somebody,
  • 00:21:50.332 --> 00:21:53.068
  • without going to the Word,without renewing your mind.
  • 00:21:53.101 --> 00:21:56.271
  • That's your responsibility.
  • 00:21:56.304 --> 00:21:58.140
  • Responsibility.
  • 00:21:58.173 --> 00:22:00.542
  • Responsibility, beloved.
  • 00:22:00.575 --> 00:22:03.478
  • Responsibility is your abilityto respond the way you choose
  • 00:22:03.512 --> 00:22:12.320
  • rather than respondingin reaction to what somebody did
  • 00:22:12.354 --> 00:22:15.991
  • to you.
  • 00:22:16.024 --> 00:22:17.359
  • You can't control what they didto you, but you control how--
  • 00:22:17.392 --> 00:22:19.027
  • you can control how you respond.
  • 00:22:19.060 --> 00:22:21.396
  • That's your ability.
  • 00:22:21.430 --> 00:22:22.731
  • That's your power.
  • 00:22:22.764 --> 00:22:24.099
  • You have the power to respond.
  • 00:22:24.132 --> 00:22:26.067
  • When somebody hurts you, youhave the power to respond
  • 00:22:26.101 --> 00:22:28.503
  • with your ability to forgive,your ability to pray, your
  • 00:22:28.537 --> 00:22:31.840
  • ability to show grace, yourability to show mercy, your
  • 00:22:31.873 --> 00:22:34.810
  • ability to let it go.
  • 00:22:34.843 --> 00:22:36.178
  • That's your ability.
  • 00:22:36.211 --> 00:22:37.546
  • That's your power.
  • 00:22:37.579 --> 00:22:38.880
  • Your response with your abilityis what's gonna determine
  • 00:22:38.914 --> 00:22:41.783
  • the outcome of your life, notwhat they did to you.
  • 00:22:41.817 --> 00:22:44.085
  • And this is how we--this is howwe conquer our choices, by not
  • 00:22:44.119 --> 00:22:49.524
  • letting people make ourdecisions for us, but by making
  • 00:22:49.558 --> 00:22:54.496
  • our own decision no matterwhat's been done to us, no
  • 00:22:54.529 --> 00:22:57.432
  • matter what life has done to us.
  • 00:22:57.466 --> 00:22:59.100
  • We choose to line our thoughtsup, our emotions up, and our
  • 00:22:59.134 --> 00:23:03.538
  • decisions up with God's Word,God's way, and walk.
  • 00:23:03.572 --> 00:23:08.310
  • We will end up walking in God'sperfect will.
  • 00:23:08.343 --> 00:23:11.947
  • Gregory Dickow: Well, I'm reallythankful for you and for
  • 00:23:16.718 --> 00:23:18.386
  • joining me today.
  • 00:23:18.420 --> 00:23:19.721
  • And remember last week welearned about how to conquer our
  • 00:23:19.754 --> 00:23:22.224
  • past and conquer our pain?
  • 00:23:22.257 --> 00:23:24.125
  • And today's teaching, as you'veheard, has been dedicated
  • 00:23:24.159 --> 00:23:26.428
  • to conquering ourselves.
  • 00:23:26.461 --> 00:23:28.163
  • And like I said, it's notabout overcoming selfishness,
  • 00:23:28.196 --> 00:23:31.199
  • although it's always betterto be generous than not,
  • 00:23:31.233 --> 00:23:33.602
  • but conquering yourself meansditching the old view that you
  • 00:23:33.635 --> 00:23:38.473
  • had of you, right, the oldpictures, the old images that we
  • 00:23:38.507 --> 00:23:42.110
  • used to have ourselves,and tapping into what God thinks
  • 00:23:42.143 --> 00:23:45.680
  • about us, and letting go of howwe've seen ourselves defeated,
  • 00:23:45.714 --> 00:23:49.518
  • sick, broken, anxious,depressed.
  • 00:23:49.551 --> 00:23:51.887
  • We need to let go of thoseimages.
  • 00:23:51.920 --> 00:23:53.355
  • That's why I also sharedwith you how to conquer your
  • 00:23:53.388 --> 00:23:56.658
  • emotions today in today'steaching as well.
  • 00:23:56.691 --> 00:23:59.327
  • So, whatever--listen, whateversomeone has done to you is 100%
  • 00:23:59.361 --> 00:24:03.465
  • on them, but our response is100% on us.
  • 00:24:03.498 --> 00:24:08.069
  • There's power that we haveto master our emotions and take
  • 00:24:08.103 --> 00:24:12.140
  • our emotions directly to God.
  • 00:24:12.173 --> 00:24:13.475
  • He can handle whatever you'regoin' through, and so trust him
  • 00:24:13.508 --> 00:24:16.678
  • with it.
  • 00:24:16.711 --> 00:24:18.013
  • But what I've learned over 30years I've been learning
  • 00:24:18.046 --> 00:24:19.748
  • and teaching on how to master myemotions, I want to share all
  • 00:24:19.781 --> 00:24:23.184
  • that with you.
  • 00:24:23.218 --> 00:24:24.519
  • So, in fact, I want to send youthis week and last week's
  • 00:24:24.553 --> 00:24:28.590
  • teaching as my gift to you,and it will explain how
  • 00:24:28.623 --> 00:24:31.726
  • to activate the power you needto conquer your path, to master
  • 00:24:31.760 --> 00:24:35.964
  • your emotions.
  • 00:24:35.997 --> 00:24:37.332
