  • I want to talk to you today about victory begins in the
  • 00:01:17.634 --> 00:01:19.202
  • About victory begins in the dark. the book of genesis
  • 00:01:19.269 --> 00:01:21.437
  • Starts off telling how god
  • 00:01:21.538 --> 00:01:23.273
  • Starts off telling how god created everything.
  • 00:01:23.339 --> 00:01:25.208
  • Created everything. it says, "the evening and
  • 00:01:25.275 --> 00:01:26.509
  • It says, "the evening and the morning were the first
  • 00:01:26.576 --> 00:01:28.044
  • The morning were the first day."
  • 00:01:28.111 --> 00:01:29.245
  • Day." you would think it would be
  • 00:01:29.312 --> 00:01:30.146
  • You would think it would be the reverse, the morning and
  • 00:01:30.213 --> 00:01:31.814
  • The reverse, the morning and the evening were the first
  • 00:01:31.881 --> 00:01:33.016
  • The evening were the first day, but god starts the day
  • 00:01:33.082 --> 00:01:35.618
  • Day, but god starts the day in the dark. at twelve am,
  • 00:01:35.685 --> 00:01:38.188
  • In the dark. at twelve am, nothing looks any different.
  • 00:01:38.254 --> 00:01:40.523
  • Nothing looks any different. if you didn't have a watch,
  • 00:01:40.590 --> 00:01:41.591
  • If you didn't have a watch, you wouldn't know you've
  • 00:01:41.658 --> 00:01:42.759
  • You wouldn't know you've entered a new day.
  • 00:01:42.825 --> 00:01:44.594
  • Entered a new day. it's still dark outside.
  • 00:01:44.661 --> 00:01:45.695
  • It's still dark outside. it looks the same as it did
  • 00:01:45.762 --> 00:01:46.996
  • It looks the same as it did at 9 o'clock, at 10 o'clock,
  • 00:01:47.063 --> 00:01:49.132
  • At 9 o'clock, at 10 o'clock, at 11 o'clock. there's no
  • 00:01:49.199 --> 00:01:51.167
  • At 11 o'clock. there's no sign that something has
  • 00:01:51.234 --> 00:01:52.368
  • Sign that something has changed. but when the clock
  • 00:01:52.435 --> 00:01:54.637
  • Changed. but when the clock strikes midnight, in that
  • 00:01:54.704 --> 00:01:55.972
  • Strikes midnight, in that one second, when nothing
  • 00:01:56.039 --> 00:01:57.507
  • One second, when nothing is looking any different,
  • 00:01:57.574 --> 00:01:58.775
  • Is looking any different, it goes from pm to am.
  • 00:01:58.841 --> 00:02:01.244
  • It goes from pm to am. it's still dark but it's
  • 00:02:01.311 --> 00:02:02.579
  • It's still dark but it's a new day.
  • 00:02:02.645 --> 00:02:04.013
  • A new day. it would make more sense if
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:05.715
  • It would make more sense if god started the day in the
  • 00:02:05.782 --> 00:02:07.283
  • God started the day in the light. when the sun came
  • 00:02:07.350 --> 00:02:08.718
  • Light. when the sun came up. at six or seven in the
  • 00:02:08.785 --> 00:02:10.920
  • Up. at six or seven in the morning, when the dawn
  • 00:02:10.987 --> 00:02:12.322
  • Morning, when the dawn breaks, the light comes,
  • 00:02:12.388 --> 00:02:14.324
  • Breaks, the light comes, then it's obvious, we would
  • 00:02:14.390 --> 00:02:15.725
  • Then it's obvious, we would know it's a new day.
  • 00:02:15.792 --> 00:02:17.360
  • Know it's a new day. we can see it, things have
  • 00:02:17.427 --> 00:02:18.828
  • We can see it, things have changed. we hear the birds
  • 00:02:18.895 --> 00:02:20.530
  • Changed. we hear the birds start chirping, the sun
  • 00:02:20.597 --> 00:02:22.131
  • Start chirping, the sun comes over the horizon.
  • 00:02:22.198 --> 00:02:23.866
  • Comes over the horizon. we have all this evidence
  • 00:02:23.933 --> 00:02:25.535
  • We have all this evidence that we've entered a new
  • 00:02:25.602 --> 00:02:26.536
  • That we've entered a new day. but on purpose,
  • 00:02:26.603 --> 00:02:28.404
  • Day. but on purpose, god chose to start the
  • 00:02:28.471 --> 00:02:30.373
  • God chose to start the day in the dark.
  • 00:02:30.440 --> 00:02:32.242
  • Day in the dark. it's symbolic of how he
  • 00:02:32.308 --> 00:02:33.643
  • It's symbolic of how he does things in our lives.
  • 00:02:33.710 --> 00:02:35.445
  • Does things in our lives. he gives us a promise.
  • 00:02:35.511 --> 00:02:37.280
  • He gives us a promise. he says we've come into
  • 00:02:37.347 --> 00:02:38.448
  • He says we've come into a new day, he's restoring
  • 00:02:38.514 --> 00:02:40.149
  • A new day, he's restoring health back into us, we're
  • 00:02:40.216 --> 00:02:42.318
  • Health back into us, we're going to lend and not
  • 00:02:42.385 --> 00:02:43.519
  • Going to lend and not borrow, our child is going
  • 00:02:43.586 --> 00:02:44.787
  • Borrow, our child is going to get back on course.
  • 00:02:44.854 --> 00:02:46.522
  • To get back on course. we believe, we pray, we
  • 00:02:46.589 --> 00:02:48.458
  • We believe, we pray, we stand in faith but nothing
  • 00:02:48.524 --> 00:02:50.126
  • Stand in faith but nothing is changing.
  • 00:02:50.193 --> 00:02:52.028
  • Is changing. nothing looks any different,
  • 00:02:52.095 --> 00:02:53.296
  • Nothing looks any different, nothing feels any different.
  • 00:02:53.363 --> 00:02:54.964
  • Nothing feels any different. it's still dark outside.
  • 00:02:55.031 --> 00:02:56.699
  • It's still dark outside. "joel my back is still
  • 00:02:56.766 --> 00:02:57.834
  • "joel my back is still hurting, my business hasn't
  • 00:02:57.900 --> 00:02:59.335
  • Hurting, my business hasn't grown, my health hasn't
  • 00:02:59.402 --> 00:03:00.870
  • Grown, my health hasn't improved."
  • 00:03:00.937 --> 00:03:02.338
  • Improved." this is what faith is all
  • 00:03:02.405 --> 00:03:03.473
  • This is what faith is all about.
  • 00:03:03.539 --> 00:03:04.874
  • About. you can't see it, but you
  • 00:03:04.941 --> 00:03:06.376
  • You can't see it, but you have to know, you've passed
  • 00:03:06.442 --> 00:03:07.410
  • Have to know, you've passed midnight.
  • 00:03:07.477 --> 00:03:09.178
  • Midnight. you've gone from pm to am.
  • 00:03:09.245 --> 00:03:11.281
  • You've gone from pm to am. yes, it's still dark
  • 00:03:11.347 --> 00:03:12.482
  • Yes, it's still dark outside, yes nothing has
  • 00:03:12.548 --> 00:03:14.250
  • Outside, yes nothing has changed but the sun is on
  • 00:03:14.317 --> 00:03:16.252
  • Changed but the sun is on its way up.
  • 00:03:16.319 --> 00:03:18.321
  • Its way up. healing is on the horizon,
  • 00:03:18.388 --> 00:03:20.390
  • Healing is on the horizon, promotion, freedom, the
  • 00:03:20.456 --> 00:03:21.924
  • Promotion, freedom, the right people.
  • 00:03:21.991 --> 00:03:23.326
  • Right people. it's just a matter of time
  • 00:03:23.393 --> 00:03:24.827
  • It's just a matter of time before you see the light
  • 00:03:24.894 --> 00:03:25.895
  • Before you see the light come breaking forth.
  • 00:03:25.962 --> 00:03:27.964
  • Come breaking forth. don't be discouraged by the
  • 00:03:28.031 --> 00:03:29.165
  • Don't be discouraged by the dark.
  • 00:03:29.232 --> 00:03:30.566
  • Dark. the dark doesn't mean
  • 00:03:30.633 --> 00:03:31.601
  • The dark doesn't mean nothing has changed.
  • 00:03:31.668 --> 00:03:33.169
  • Nothing has changed. the dark is not a sign that
  • 00:03:33.236 --> 00:03:34.604
  • The dark is not a sign that god is not working, that he
  • 00:03:34.671 --> 00:03:36.139
  • God is not working, that he didn't hear your prayer.
  • 00:03:36.205 --> 00:03:37.774
  • Didn't hear your prayer. thoughts will tell you, "you
  • 00:03:37.840 --> 00:03:39.609
  • Thoughts will tell you, "you would have seen something by
  • 00:03:39.676 --> 00:03:40.977
  • Would have seen something by now.
  • 00:03:41.044 --> 00:03:41.878
  • Now. you would feel a little
  • 00:03:41.944 --> 00:03:42.712
  • You would feel a little better, one of those
  • 00:03:42.779 --> 00:03:43.846
  • Better, one of those companies would have called
  • 00:03:43.913 --> 00:03:44.881
  • Companies would have called you back, that addiction
  • 00:03:44.947 --> 00:03:46.549
  • You back, that addiction wouldn't be this strong."
  • 00:03:46.616 --> 00:03:48.484
  • Wouldn't be this strong." you have to walk by faith
  • 00:03:48.551 --> 00:03:50.053
  • You have to walk by faith and not by sight.
  • 00:03:50.119 --> 00:03:51.921
  • And not by sight. if you walk by sight, you'll
  • 00:03:51.988 --> 00:03:53.489
  • If you walk by sight, you'll talk yourself out of it.
  • 00:03:53.556 --> 00:03:55.124
  • Talk yourself out of it. because 11:30 at night
  • 00:03:55.191 --> 00:03:56.926
  • Because 11:30 at night doesn't look any different
  • 00:03:56.993 --> 00:03:58.361
  • Doesn't look any different than midnight.
  • 00:03:58.428 --> 00:03:59.796
  • Than midnight. everything you can see,
  • 00:03:59.862 --> 00:04:01.397
  • Everything you can see, feel, touch, smell looks
  • 00:04:01.464 --> 00:04:02.332
  • Feel, touch, smell looks just the same.
  • 00:04:02.398 --> 00:04:04.133
  • Just the same. there's no evidence that
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:05.001
  • There's no evidence that it's a new day.
  • 00:04:05.068 --> 00:04:06.736
  • It's a new day. but the psalmist said, "the
  • 00:04:06.803 --> 00:04:08.137
  • But the psalmist said, "the moment you pray, the tide of
  • 00:04:08.204 --> 00:04:10.807
  • Moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns."
  • 00:04:10.873 --> 00:04:12.608
  • The battle turns." you can't see it but when
  • 00:04:12.675 --> 00:04:14.243
  • You can't see it but when you prayed you left the pm
  • 00:04:14.310 --> 00:04:15.978
  • You prayed you left the pm and you came into am.
  • 00:04:16.045 --> 00:04:18.047
  • And you came into am. it's a new day.
  • 00:04:18.114 --> 00:04:19.849
  • It's a new day. you may not be able to see
  • 00:04:19.916 --> 00:04:20.883
  • You may not be able to see any sign of it, that's okay,
  • 00:04:20.950 --> 00:04:23.119
  • Any sign of it, that's okay, victory begins in the dark.
  • 00:04:23.186 --> 00:04:25.722
  • Victory begins in the dark. we all go through these
  • 00:04:25.788 --> 00:04:27.390
  • We all go through these times where we don't think
  • 00:04:27.457 --> 00:04:28.891
  • Times where we don't think it's going to work out,
  • 00:04:28.958 --> 00:04:30.393
  • It's going to work out, seasons where nothing is
  • 00:04:30.460 --> 00:04:31.361
  • Seasons where nothing is changing.
  • 00:04:31.427 --> 00:04:32.762
  • Changing. we're being our best, but
  • 00:04:32.829 --> 00:04:34.197
  • We're being our best, but the business is not growing.
  • 00:04:34.263 --> 00:04:35.998
  • The business is not growing. we're standing in faith, but
  • 00:04:36.065 --> 00:04:37.533
  • We're standing in faith, but our health is not improving.
  • 00:04:37.600 --> 00:04:39.268
  • Our health is not improving. it's tempting to think that
  • 00:04:39.335 --> 00:04:41.003
  • It's tempting to think that god has forgotten about us.

  • It's not fair. we were doing what you wanted us to do."
  • 00:07:07.750 --> 00:07:09.952

  • 00:07:10.019 --> 00:07:11.521
  • But the scripture says, "at midnight, they were singing
  • 00:07:11.587 --> 00:07:12.922
  • Midnight, they were singing praises and giving thanks to

  • God."
  • 00:07:14.957 --> 00:07:16.526
  • God." it's interesting that we're
  • 00:07:16.592 --> 00:07:17.593
  • It's interesting that we're told when this happened.
  • 00:07:17.660 --> 00:07:19.896
  • Told when this happened. most other miracles we read
  • 00:07:19.962 --> 00:07:21.197
  • Most other miracles we read about; we don't have the
  • 00:07:21.264 --> 00:07:22.765
  • About; we don't have the time.
  • 00:07:22.832 --> 00:07:23.699
  • Time. that detail isn't recorded.
  • 00:07:23.766 --> 00:07:25.668
  • That detail isn't recorded. but god had the writer tell
  • 00:07:25.735 --> 00:07:26.869
  • But god had the writer tell us this time, because
  • 00:07:26.936 --> 00:07:29.171
  • Us this time, because midnight means it was a new
  • 00:07:29.238 --> 00:07:31.007
  • Midnight means it was a new day.
  • 00:07:31.073 --> 00:07:32.375
  • As they were singings a new
  • 00:07:32.475 --> 00:07:34.010
  • As they were singings a new praises, suddenly there was
  • 00:07:34.076 --> 00:07:35.978
  • Praises, suddenly there was a great earthquake, the
  • 00:07:36.045 --> 00:07:37.914
  • A great earthquake, the prison doors flew open, the
  • 00:07:37.980 --> 00:07:40.082
  • Prison doors flew open, the chains fell off their feet
  • 00:07:40.149 --> 00:07:41.684
  • Chains fell off their feet and they walked out as free
  • 00:07:41.751 --> 00:07:43.085
  • And they walked out as free men.
  • 00:07:43.152 --> 00:07:44.387
  • Men. it's not a coincidence that
  • 00:07:44.453 --> 00:07:45.855
  • It's not a coincidence that this all happened at
  • 00:07:45.922 --> 00:07:47.189
  • This all happened at midnight.
  • 00:07:47.256 --> 00:07:48.524
  • Midnight. they may have been singing
  • 00:07:48.591 --> 00:07:49.926
  • They may have been singing at ten o'clock in the
  • 00:07:49.992 --> 00:07:51.160
  • At ten o'clock in the evening, nothing happened.
  • 00:07:51.227 --> 00:07:52.828
  • Evening, nothing happened. thanking god at eleven
  • 00:07:52.895 --> 00:07:54.030
  • Thanking god at eleven o'clock, nothing happened.
  • 00:07:54.096 --> 00:07:55.998
  • O'clock, nothing happened. praising at 11:30, still
  • 00:07:56.065 --> 00:07:57.333
  • Praising at 11:30, still nothing.
  • 00:07:57.400 --> 00:07:59.035
  • Nothing. but when they hit midnight,
  • 00:07:59.101 --> 00:08:00.836
  • But when they hit midnight, when that new day started,
  • 00:08:00.903 --> 00:08:02.405
  • When that new day started, suddenly things changed.
  • 00:08:02.471 --> 00:08:04.273
  • God was showing us, it may
  • 00:08:04.373 --> 00:08:06.442
  • God was showing us, it may be dark all around you, you
  • 00:08:06.509 --> 00:08:08.844
  • Be dark all around you, you don't see a way out, but
  • 00:08:08.911 --> 00:08:10.179
  • Don't see a way out, but when you come into that new
  • 00:08:10.246 --> 00:08:11.847
  • When you come into that new day, when you cross from pm
  • 00:08:11.914 --> 00:08:13.516
  • Day, when you cross from pm to am, things suddenly
  • 00:08:13.583 --> 00:08:15.618
  • To am, things suddenly shift.
  • 00:08:15.685 --> 00:08:17.520
  • Shift. sometimes you see it all at
  • 00:08:17.587 --> 00:08:19.755
  • Sometimes you see it all at once, like with paul and
  • 00:08:19.822 --> 00:08:20.890
  • Once, like with paul and silas, other times you see
  • 00:08:20.957 --> 00:08:22.525
  • Silas, other times you see it later.
  • 00:08:22.592 --> 00:08:24.527
  • It later. but the moment you praise
  • 00:08:24.594 --> 00:08:25.962
  • But the moment you praise things change in your favor.
  • 00:08:26.028 --> 00:08:28.631
  • Things change in your favor. there may be a period of
  • 00:08:28.698 --> 00:08:30.166
  • There may be a period of darkness, where it doesn't
  • 00:08:30.232 --> 00:08:31.434
  • Darkness, where it doesn't look like anything is
  • 00:08:31.500 --> 00:08:32.568
  • Look like anything is happening, but if you'll do
  • 00:08:32.635 --> 00:08:33.769
  • Happening, but if you'll do like them, and just keep
  • 00:08:33.836 --> 00:08:35.137
  • Like them, and just keep thanking god that he's
  • 00:08:35.204 --> 00:08:36.472
  • Thanking god that he's fighting your battles,
  • 00:08:36.539 --> 00:08:38.007
  • Fighting your battles, thanking him that he's
  • 00:08:38.074 --> 00:08:39.108
  • Thanking him that he's making ways where you don't
  • 00:08:39.175 --> 00:08:40.376
  • Making ways where you don't see a way, then you're going
  • 00:08:40.443 --> 00:08:41.644
  • See a way, then you're going to come in to these times
  • 00:08:41.711 --> 00:08:43.479
  • To come in to these times where god will suddenly show
  • 00:08:43.546 --> 00:08:44.914
  • Where god will suddenly show out in your life.
  • 00:08:44.981 --> 00:08:46.749
  • Out in your life. he'll make things happen
  • 00:08:46.816 --> 00:08:48.217
  • He'll make things happen that you couldn't make
  • 00:08:48.284 --> 00:08:49.251
  • Happen.
  • 00:08:49.352 --> 00:08:50.353
  • Happen. you may have areas where it
  • 00:08:50.419 --> 00:08:51.988
  • You may have areas where it feels dark right now.
  • 00:08:52.054 --> 00:08:54.056
  • Feels dark right now. nothing is changing, that's
  • 00:08:54.123 --> 00:08:55.391
  • Nothing is changing, that's a test.
  • 00:08:55.458 --> 00:08:56.926
  • A test. will you praise him in the
  • 00:08:56.993 --> 00:08:58.127
  • Will you praise him in the dark?
  • 00:08:58.194 --> 00:08:59.362
  • Dark? will you thank him that what
  • 00:08:59.428 --> 00:09:00.630
  • Will you thank him that what he promised is on the way?
  • 00:09:00.696 --> 00:09:02.365
  • He promised is on the way? will you talk like it's
  • 00:09:02.431 --> 00:09:03.766
  • Will you talk like it's going to turn around,
  • 00:09:03.833 --> 00:09:05.134
  • Believe that healing is
  • 00:09:05.234 --> 00:09:06.135
  • Believe that healing is coming even though the
  • 00:09:06.202 --> 00:09:07.403
  • Coming even though the medical report isn't
  • 00:09:07.470 --> 00:09:08.404
  • Medical report isn't improving?
  • 00:09:08.471 --> 00:09:09.839
  • Improving? don't go by what you feel.
  • 00:09:09.905 --> 00:09:11.974
  • Don't go by what you feel. your feelings don't always
  • 00:09:12.041 --> 00:09:13.309
  • Your feelings don't always tell you the truth.
  • 00:09:13.376 --> 00:09:15.011
  • Tell you the truth. your emotions will try to
  • 00:09:15.077 --> 00:09:16.045
  • Your emotions will try to convince you that it's never
