  • Listen, today I want to take youback to a very special teaching
  • 00:00:25.871 --> 00:00:29.241
  • that God gave me beforethe COVID-19 crisis called

  • 00:00:31.677 --> 00:00:36.115
  • It's exactly what we need forthe times that we're living in.

  • of the emotional pain andsuffering that you experience
  • 00:00:46.091 --> 00:00:48.327
  • in your life.
  • 00:00:48.360 --> 00:00:49.728
  • The Bible says Jesus went abouthealing every kind of
  • 00:00:49.761 --> 00:00:51.964
  • disease and every sicknessin his earthly ministry,
  • 00:00:51.997 --> 00:00:54.933
  • and he's "the same yesterday,today, and forever."
  • 00:00:54.967 --> 00:00:57.369
  • He is your prescription.
  • 00:00:57.402 --> 00:00:59.638
  • I'm going to teach you theseven steps today to experience
  • 00:00:59.671 --> 00:01:02.741
  • complete and total healingfrom the inside out.
  • 00:01:02.774 --> 00:01:06.945
  • Check this out.
  • 00:01:06.979 --> 00:01:09.114
  • Gregory: John chapter 15,verse 7,
  • 00:01:10.916 --> 00:01:12.751
  • Jesus says somethingvery powerful.
  • 00:01:12.784 --> 00:01:14.353
  • He says, "If you abide in Me,and My words abide in you,
  • 00:01:14.386 --> 00:01:18.157
  • you will ask what you desire,and it shall be done for you."
  • 00:01:18.190 --> 00:01:22.728
  • "You shall ask what you desire,and it shall be done for you."
  • 00:01:23.595 --> 00:01:26.932
  • Now, notice the secret here--or,the answer here, the solution
  • 00:01:26.965 --> 00:01:32.037
  • here is, first of all, Jesusis not saying there's anything
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:35.874
  • wrong with having desire,so he's actually
  • 00:01:35.908 --> 00:01:38.710
  • saying desire is good.
  • 00:01:38.744 --> 00:01:41.313
  • He said because "you willask what you desire,"
  • 00:01:41.346 --> 00:01:45.918
  • and it will be done for you.
  • 00:01:45.951 --> 00:01:47.586
  • But notice the condition inwhich your desire will be done
  • 00:01:47.619 --> 00:01:51.523
  • for you: "If you abide in Me,and My words abide in you,
  • 00:01:51.557 --> 00:01:56.895
  • you will ask what you desire,"and it will be done for you.
  • 00:01:56.929 --> 00:02:00.499
  • Now, here, our desires arecompletely controlled
  • 00:02:00.532 --> 00:02:05.404
  • and our desires are completelyinfluenced by what's
  • 00:02:05.437 --> 00:02:08.707
  • abiding in us.
  • 00:02:08.740 --> 00:02:10.442
  • He said if "My words abidein you, you will ask
  • 00:02:10.475 --> 00:02:14.246
  • what you desire," and itwill be done for you.
  • 00:02:14.279 --> 00:02:16.582
  • Now, listen, if God's Words arenot abiding in you, your desires
  • 00:02:16.615 --> 00:02:21.320
  • are going to be perverted.
  • 00:02:21.353 --> 00:02:22.988
  • Your desires aregoing to be twisted.
  • 00:02:23.021 --> 00:02:24.823
  • This is the cause of every crimeand every bad decision that
  • 00:02:24.856 --> 00:02:29.595
  • a human being ever makes--is that they have wrong desires,
  • 00:02:29.628 --> 00:02:33.398
  • and wrong desires is not becausea person is an evil person.
  • 00:02:33.432 --> 00:02:38.470
  • In most cases, wrong desiresis because of what is abiding
  • 00:02:38.503 --> 00:02:42.841
  • in you.
  • 00:02:42.874 --> 00:02:45.877
  • Look, he's not saying--he'sshowing us a process here:
  • 00:02:45.911 --> 00:02:50.048
  • "If you abide in Me,"that's being born again.
  • 00:02:50.082 --> 00:02:52.651
  • Now you're in Christ,being born again.
  • 00:02:52.684 --> 00:02:54.853
  • "If you abide in Me, and Mywords abide in you, you will ask
  • 00:02:54.886 --> 00:02:59.358
  • what you desire," andit will be done for you.
  • 00:02:59.391 --> 00:03:02.694
  • So, your desires will beGod-blessed desires when
  • 00:03:02.728 --> 00:03:08.867
  • his Words abide in you.
  • 00:03:08.900 --> 00:03:10.702
  • What's abiding in you right now?
  • 00:03:10.736 --> 00:03:12.504
  • Sometimes anger's abiding in us.
  • 00:03:12.537 --> 00:03:14.439
  • Sometimes anxiety'sabiding in us.
  • 00:03:14.473 --> 00:03:16.508
  • Sometimes fear's abiding in us.
  • 00:03:16.541 --> 00:03:18.577
  • Sometimes negativity'sabiding in us.
  • 00:03:18.610 --> 00:03:21.013
  • Sometimes hatredis abiding in us.
  • 00:03:21.046 --> 00:03:23.382
  • Sometimes a sense ofinferiority is abiding in us.
  • 00:03:23.415 --> 00:03:28.387
  • What's abiding is whatdetermines what your desires
  • 00:03:28.420 --> 00:03:32.224
  • are, and that's why peoplehave perverted, twisted, lustful
  • 00:03:32.257 --> 00:03:36.295
  • desires, because that word--oneof the definitions for the word
  • 00:03:36.328 --> 00:03:40.632
  • "lust" is the conditionof a diseased soul,
  • 00:03:40.666 --> 00:03:45.404
  • the condition ofa diseased soul.
  • 00:03:45.437 --> 00:03:48.006
  • So, twisted or wrong lust, wrongdesires, which we call lust,
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:54.846
  • because "lust" really is theword "desire," but when it's
  • 00:03:54.880 --> 00:03:59.685
  • lust that is contrary toGod's--what God desires, then it
  • 00:03:59.718 --> 00:04:04.122
  • is the desires that emergefrom the diseased condition
  • 00:04:04.156 --> 00:04:08.794
  • of the soul, the diseasedcondition of the soul.
  • 00:04:08.827 --> 00:04:11.763
  • We want soul health; we wantsoul healing, 'cause as a man
  • 00:04:11.797 --> 00:04:15.434
  • thinks, so is he, and when thesoul prospers, your whole life
  • 00:04:15.467 --> 00:04:19.638
  • prospers, the Bible says, right?
  • 00:04:19.671 --> 00:04:21.940
  • In 3 John, verse 2, he says,"Beloved, I wish above all
  • 00:04:21.973 --> 00:04:24.443
  • things that you would prosperand be in health,
  • 00:04:24.476 --> 00:04:26.411
  • even as your soul prospers,"or, in proportion
  • 00:04:26.445 --> 00:04:30.816
  • to your soul's prosperity.
  • 00:04:30.849 --> 00:04:32.617
  • But here he talks about desire,and he says, "If my Words abide
  • 00:04:32.651 --> 00:04:37.055
  • in you," so the question is,what's abiding in you?
  • 00:04:37.089 --> 00:04:39.491
  • Is fear abiding in you?
  • 00:04:39.524 --> 00:04:41.193
  • Then your desire is going to betwisted, and you're going to try
  • 00:04:41.226 --> 00:04:45.497
  • to obtain your desire in someother way than it being granted
  • 00:04:45.530 --> 00:04:50.736
  • to you or it being done foryou, so you have to do it for
  • 00:04:50.769 --> 00:04:54.272
  • yourself when you have pervertedor twisted desire, but when his
  • 00:04:54.306 --> 00:04:58.076
  • Words are abiding in you, itcauses your desires to be the
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:01.980
  • overflow of God's promisesand the overflow of God's Word,
  • 00:05:02.013 --> 00:05:06.084
  • and you end up desiring what Goddesires, and when you ask for
  • 00:05:06.118 --> 00:05:09.454
  • that, it'll be done for you, butwhen your--when what's in your--
  • 00:05:09.488 --> 00:05:14.693
  • what's abiding in you iscorrupt, when what's abiding
  • 00:05:14.726 --> 00:05:17.629
  • in you is wrong thinking,when what's abiding in you is
  • 00:05:17.662 --> 00:05:19.998
  • wrong--is emotions that areuncontained and uncontrolled and
  • 00:05:20.031 --> 00:05:23.602
  • unchecked with the Word of God,then you have twisted, perverted
  • 00:05:23.635 --> 00:05:27.239
  • desires, and you will--andGod will not do those for you.
  • 00:05:27.272 --> 00:05:31.610
  • Those desires will not be donefor you, so you will go and try
  • 00:05:31.643 --> 00:05:34.746
  • to do them for yourself at theharm and expense of others
  • 00:05:34.780 --> 00:05:39.117
  • and at the harm andexpense of your own future.
  • 00:05:39.151 --> 00:05:42.521
  • People's souls aresuffering in silence,
  • 00:05:42.554 --> 00:05:47.559
  • and it's time to be healed.
  • 00:05:47.592 --> 00:05:49.694
  • People's souls aresuffering in silence,
  • 00:05:49.728 --> 00:05:52.764
  • and it's time to be healed.
  • 00:05:52.798 --> 00:05:55.867
  • What is abiding in you?
  • 00:05:55.901 --> 00:05:57.536
  • If there's a hole in your soul,there will be holes
  • 00:05:57.569 --> 00:06:01.072
  • everywhere else.
  • 00:06:01.106 --> 00:06:02.774
  • What's robbing us of oursuccess, what's robbing us
  • 00:06:02.808 --> 00:06:08.079
  • of our God-given desires anddreams is what's abiding in us.
  • 00:06:08.113 --> 00:06:14.319
  • Is there hate?Is there bitterness?
  • 00:06:14.352 --> 00:06:16.755
  • Is there fear?Is there selfishness?
  • 00:06:16.788 --> 00:06:19.391
  • Is there anxiety?
  • 00:06:19.424 --> 00:06:21.259
  • This is called soul sickness.Soul sickness.
  • 00:06:21.293 --> 00:06:25.363
  • I need to say something to you.
  • 00:06:25.397 --> 00:06:26.898
  • It's very important that youget ahold of this, that mental
  • 00:06:26.932 --> 00:06:30.001
  • illness, depression, addiction,alcoholism, sexual crisis,
  • 00:06:30.035 --> 00:06:36.541
  • identity crisis,suicidal thoughts--
  • 00:06:36.575 --> 00:06:39.177
  • these are not character flaws ina person's life.
  • 00:06:39.211 --> 00:06:43.448
  • They are illnesses;they are diseases.
  • 00:06:43.482 --> 00:06:47.219
  • Listen to me: Theseare not character flaws.
  • 00:06:47.252 --> 00:06:50.021
  • Well, you just havea character flaw.
  • 00:06:50.055 --> 00:06:51.656
  • You just need to workon your character,
  • 00:06:51.690 --> 00:06:53.158
  • and you won't be an alcoholic.
  • 00:06:53.191 --> 00:06:54.693
  • You just need to workon your character,
  • 00:06:54.726 --> 00:06:56.027
  • and you won't do drugs.
  • 00:06:56.061 --> 00:06:57.362
  • You just need to--
  • 00:06:57.395 --> 00:06:58.697
  • no, these are illnesses,and these are sicknesses.
  • 00:06:58.730 --> 00:07:00.298
  • But here's the thing: It's onething if I were to say to you,
  • 00:07:00.332 --> 00:07:02.734
  • "These are illnessesand sicknesses,
  • 00:07:02.767 --> 00:07:04.202
  • and you'll haveto deal with them,
  • 00:07:04.236 --> 00:07:05.537
  • and you'll just haveto stay sick and ill the rest
  • 00:07:05.570 --> 00:07:07.472
  • of your life," but Jesus saidsomething different about that.
  • 00:07:07.506 --> 00:07:10.675
  • In Matthew chapter 4, verse23, I need you to see this:
  • 00:07:10.709 --> 00:07:13.678
  • And "Jesus was going throughall Galilee, teaching in their
  • 00:07:13.712 --> 00:07:19.050
  • synagogues, and preaching thegospel of the kingdom," so we
  • 00:07:19.084 --> 00:07:22.854
  • know he was teaching and we knowhe was preaching, but the third
  • 00:07:22.888 --> 00:07:26.491
  • thing we sometimes overlookand forget what he was doing,
  • 00:07:26.525 --> 00:07:30.161
  • and that was "healing every kindof disease and every kind of
  • 00:07:30.195 --> 00:07:35.700
  • sickness among the people."
  • 00:07:35.734 --> 00:07:37.969
  • Jesus heals every kind--look at what he says.
  • 00:07:38.003 --> 00:07:41.706
  • He healed every kind of diseaseand every kind of sickness.
  • 00:07:41.740 --> 00:07:45.243
  • That means physical sickness;that means emotional sickness;
  • 00:07:45.277 --> 00:07:49.414
  • that means mental sickness;that means addiction sickness.
  • 00:07:49.447 --> 00:07:53.084
  • Jesus is the healer.
  • 00:07:53.118 --> 00:07:54.886
  • There is hope in Jesus, and soulsickness is where every one
  • 00:07:54.920 --> 00:07:59.257
  • of these things emerge from.
  • 00:07:59.291 --> 00:08:01.226
  • And other things: being aworkaholic flows from soul
  • 00:08:01.259 --> 00:08:04.429
  • sickness, being angry atothers flows from soul sickness,
  • 00:08:04.462 --> 00:08:07.966
  • mistreating people,treating people like dirt,
  • 00:08:07.999 --> 00:08:10.669
  • that comes from soul sickness.
  • 00:08:10.702 --> 00:08:12.604
  • Feeling loneliness comesfrom soul sickness;
  • 00:08:12.637 --> 00:08:15.106
  • feeling hopeless comesfrom soul sickness.
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:18.209
  • Listen, we're going to behealed in our souls today.
  • 00:08:18.243 --> 00:08:21.179
  • At least we're going tostart being healed in our souls,
  • 00:08:21.212 --> 00:08:23.415
  • because, listen, this soulsickness is characterized by
  • 00:08:23.448 --> 00:08:26.851
  • feelings of hopelessnessand helplessness,
  • 00:08:26.885 --> 00:08:31.056
  • and you feel incompetentfor what you're up against.
  • 00:08:31.089 --> 00:08:34.659
  • It involves vague,unexplainable symptoms,
  • 00:08:34.693 --> 00:08:39.030
  • and soul sickness can be healed,and it starts here.
  • 00:08:39.064 --> 00:08:45.203
  • It starts with understandingthe value of life
  • 00:08:45.236 --> 00:08:51.176
  • and the value of your soul.
  • 00:08:51.209 --> 00:08:54.479
  • Jesus said, "What does it profita man to gain the whole world,
  • 00:08:54.512 --> 00:08:58.083
  • and forfeit his soul?"
  • 00:08:58.116 --> 00:09:00.719
  • Now, we've always thought--manyChristians have thought, "Well,
  • 00:09:00.752 --> 00:09:02.921
  • that Scripture means, you know,'Hey, why gather things and then
  • 00:09:02.954 --> 00:09:08.193
  • you're going to lose your soul.
  • 00:09:08.226 --> 00:09:10.261
  • If you gain the wholeworld, you'll lose your soul.'"
  • 00:09:10.295 --> 00:09:12.297
  • Well, look, you can havemillions and billions of dollars
  • 00:09:12.330 --> 00:09:15.967
  • and not lose your soul,and you could be broke
  • 00:09:16.001 --> 00:09:21.272
  • but have lost your souland gone to hell.
  • 00:09:21.306 --> 00:09:23.775
  • He's not saying it'swrong to have things.
  • 00:09:23.808 --> 00:09:26.711
  • What he's saying is--he's making a comparison.
  • 00:09:26.745 --> 00:09:29.714
  • He's saying even if you couldgain the whole world,
  • 00:09:29.748 --> 00:09:34.052
  • that does not compare--the valueof gaining the whole world
  • 00:09:34.085 --> 00:09:39.924
  • is not equal to the valueof your soul.
  • 00:09:39.958 --> 00:09:44.362
  • The value of your soul is somuch greater than gaining
  • 00:09:44.396 --> 00:09:48.400
  • the whole world.
  • 00:09:48.433 --> 00:09:50.068
  • I'm not here to condoneyour choice.
  • 00:09:50.101 --> 00:09:52.537

  • What does he do whenthe enemy's pursuing him?
  • 00:14:27.578 --> 00:14:30.815
  • Verse 4, look at what he says,
  • 00:14:30.848 --> 00:14:33.718
  • "My spirit grows faintwithin me;"
  • 00:14:33.751 --> 00:14:35.586
  • my heart is dismayed.
  • 00:14:35.620 --> 00:14:36.988
  • What is the solution?
  • 00:14:37.021 --> 00:14:38.356
  • Verse 5--verse number 1.
  • 00:14:38.389 --> 00:14:39.757

  • 00:18:48.940 --> 00:18:51.309
  • that makes our soul sick iswhen people let us down,
  • 00:18:51.342 --> 00:18:54.779

  • Get your wisdom from God,not from your opinion.
  • 00:19:58.576 --> 00:20:01.045
  • Get your wisdom from God,not all the experts.
  • 00:20:01.078 --> 00:20:03.681
  • There's nothing wrongwith learning from people,
  • 00:20:03.714 --> 00:20:05.650
  • but we need to get ourwisdom from God.
  • 00:20:05.683 --> 00:20:07.518
  • Lord, you show me theway that I should go.
  • 00:20:07.551 --> 00:20:10.655
  • Everybody's got an opinionon what you should do,
  • 00:20:10.688 --> 00:20:13.090
  • get yours from God.
  • 00:20:13.124 --> 00:20:16.494
  • And then number six:"Teach me to do your will,
  • 00:20:16.527 --> 00:20:20.164
  • may your good Spirit lead me."
  • 00:20:20.197 --> 00:20:24.101
  • We need to welcome and invitethe Holy Spirit to lead us
  • 00:20:24.135 --> 00:20:27.772
  • and to teach us.
  • 00:20:27.805 --> 00:20:29.307
  • Stop being afraidof the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:20:29.340 --> 00:20:33.177
  • We gotta stop that.
  • 00:20:33.210 --> 00:20:34.779
  • We gotta stop beingafraid of the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:20:34.812 --> 00:20:37.114
  • We gotta stop thinking thatpreachers that talk about
  • 00:20:37.148 --> 00:20:39.650
  • the Holy Ghost are too crazyfor us, too wild for us.
  • 00:20:39.684 --> 00:20:43.087
  • Stop being so pridefuland invite the Holy Spirit
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:46.090
  • to lead you.
  • 00:20:46.123 --> 00:20:47.725
  • If you went to a church wherethey didn't teach much about
  • 00:20:47.758 --> 00:20:49.827
  • the Holy Spirit, I apologize onbehalf of the preachers that are
  • 00:20:49.860 --> 00:20:53.964
  • afraid that people will leavethe church if you talk about
  • 00:20:53.998 --> 00:20:56.567
  • tongues and if you talk aboutthe Holy Spirit and if you talk
  • 00:20:56.600 --> 00:20:58.969
  • about the baptismof the power of God.
  • 00:20:59.003 --> 00:21:01.972
  • I'm sorry, but that's theonly way you're going
  • 00:21:02.006 --> 00:21:03.708
  • to live victoriously is withthe help of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:03.741 --> 00:21:07.044
  • No one can do it alone.
  • 00:21:07.078 --> 00:21:09.447
  • No one can do it alone.This isn't psychology.
  • 00:21:10.981 --> 00:21:14.118
  • This isn't psychology.
  • 00:21:14.151 --> 00:21:15.820
  • You can get that withoutGod, but you can't get
  • 00:21:15.853 --> 00:21:17.521
  • the Holy Spirit without God.
  • 00:21:17.555 --> 00:21:20.057
  • And number 7, I knowit's overtime here,
  • 00:21:20.091 --> 00:21:22.126
  • but I'm about to kickthe field goal, and it's--
  • 00:21:22.159 --> 00:21:24.028
  • we're going to win.
  • 00:21:24.061 --> 00:21:25.896
  • I'm not hittingthe goal post twice.
  • 00:21:25.930 --> 00:21:30.601
  • That's a Chicago joke.
  • 00:21:32.503 --> 00:21:35.673
  • Verse 11 says, remember--"Foryour name's sake, Lord, preserve
  • 00:21:36.874 --> 00:21:40.778
  • my life; in your righteousness,bring me out of trouble."
  • 00:21:40.811 --> 00:21:45.216
  • Okay, now listen to me now,this is the final point,
  • 00:21:45.249 --> 00:21:48.586
  • number seven--final step
  • 00:21:48.619 --> 00:21:50.521
  • to emotional healingand health is embracing
  • 00:21:50.554 --> 00:21:55.226
  • the gift of righteousnessand use learning to identify
  • 00:21:55.259 --> 00:22:02.700
  • with who you are in Christ onthe righteousness of God.
  • 00:22:02.733 --> 00:22:06.137
  • The opposite of righteousnessis shame, guilt, condemnation,
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:11.509
  • self-righteousness, pride.
  • 00:22:11.542 --> 00:22:13.911
  • Listen, he says,"In your righteousness,
  • 00:22:13.944 --> 00:22:18.382
  • bring me out of trouble."
  • 00:22:18.416 --> 00:22:20.151
  • Our own righteousnessis as filthy rags,
  • 00:22:20.184 --> 00:22:22.420
  • the Bible says,but his righteousness,
  • 00:22:22.453 --> 00:22:25.222
  • which he gave us as a gift,will bring us out
  • 00:22:25.256 --> 00:22:28.959
  • of every bit of trouble.
  • 00:22:28.993 --> 00:22:30.761
  • The righteous will prevail.
  • 00:22:30.795 --> 00:22:32.863
  • The righteous willget up when they fall.
  • 00:22:32.897 --> 00:22:35.032
  • The righteous can prayand have answers prevail.
  • 00:22:35.065 --> 00:22:38.235
  • The righteous move mountains.
  • 00:22:38.269 --> 00:22:40.271
  • The righteous are bold.
  • 00:22:40.304 --> 00:22:41.839
  • The righteous arewalking in divine healing.
  • 00:22:41.872 --> 00:22:44.475
  • Identify with the giftof righteousness.
  • 00:22:44.508 --> 00:22:47.578
  • Fill your mind withwho you are in Christ,
  • 00:22:47.611 --> 00:22:50.815
  • and you will be healedof soul sickness.
  • 00:22:50.848 --> 00:22:53.617
  • Gregory: Well, I think everyoneknows what it's like
  • 00:22:57.054 --> 00:22:59.123
  • to feel lonely, depressed,and afraid.
  • 00:22:59.156 --> 00:23:01.692
  • The pressureagainst our emotions
  • 00:23:01.725 --> 00:23:03.561
  • can be overwhelming at times.
  • 00:23:03.594 --> 00:23:05.062
  • Who hasn't felt the wavesof darkness try
  • 00:23:05.095 --> 00:23:07.465
  • to take over their soul?
  • 00:23:07.498 --> 00:23:08.899
  • I know I have.
  • 00:23:08.933 --> 00:23:10.501
  • And I really wantyou to get this.
  • 00:23:10.534 --> 00:23:11.969
  • This is the key to youremotional health and healing.
  • 00:23:12.002 --> 00:23:13.671
  • You see, remember our soulis made up of three parts:
  • 00:23:13.704 --> 00:23:15.873
  • the mind to think, the heart tofeel, and the will to decide.
  • 00:23:15.906 --> 00:23:20.010
  • And when your soul is sickor unhealthy, it affects
  • 00:23:20.044 --> 00:23:22.513
  • those three things,which affect everything.
  • 00:23:22.546 --> 00:23:24.949
  • When our soul is not prosperingand flourishing, it leads
  • 00:23:24.982 --> 00:23:27.351
  • to fearful thoughts andfeelings and fearful choices.
  • 00:23:27.384 --> 00:23:32.323
  • And really, that's everythingthat life is made of--
  • 00:23:32.356 --> 00:23:34.225
  • what we think, how we feel,and the things
  • 00:23:34.258 --> 00:23:36.460
  • that we decide or choose.
  • 00:23:36.494 --> 00:23:38.395
  • So, the secret toa great life is simple:
  • 00:23:38.429 --> 00:23:40.698
  • having a healthy soul.
  • 00:23:40.731 --> 00:23:42.566
  • And the enemy of your soulis trying to paint a hopeless,
  • 00:23:42.600 --> 00:23:45.269
  • dark picture of your lifeso you become discouraged,
  • 00:23:45.302 --> 00:23:47.838
  • lonely, and depressed.
  • 00:23:47.872 --> 00:23:49.573
  • Maybe you feel like you're ina place like that right now,
  • 00:23:49.607 --> 00:23:51.475
  • or perhaps you know someonewho's in a place like that.

  • It started with rememberingwhat God has done for you.
  • 00:24:02.019 --> 00:24:04.755
  • That's why we need to hearGod's Word over and over again,
  • 00:24:04.788 --> 00:24:07.491
  • God's Word abiding in us,because that's what causes us
