  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL, GOD BLESS
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:13.000
  • YOU.
  • 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:13.160
  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:15.010
  • HOMES AND IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:16.170
  • AREA PLEASE STOP BY AND BE
  • 00:00:16.170 --> 00:00:18.040
  • A PART OF ONE OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:18.040 --> 00:00:20.010
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:23.130
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:23.130 --> 00:00:24.230
  • FUNNY AND I HEARD ABOUT THIS
  • 00:00:24.230 --> 00:00:26.030
  • PASTOR.
  • 00:00:26.030 --> 00:00:27.120
  • HE WAS ASKED TO INFORM ONE
  • 00:00:27.120 --> 00:00:28.270
  • OF HIS MEMBERS THAT HE HAD JUST
  • 00:00:28.270 --> 00:00:30.210
  • INHERITED $10 MILLION.
  • 00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:33.050
  • THEY WERE CONCERNED BECAUSE
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:34.010
  • OF THE SHOCK OF IT HE MIGHT
  • 00:00:34.010 --> 00:00:35.200
  • HAVE A HEART ATTACK.
  • 00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:37.010
  • THE PASTOR SAID TO HIM, "WHAT
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:38.230
  • WOULD YOU DO IF YOU INHERITED
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:40.150
  • $10 MILLION?"
  • 00:00:40.150 --> 00:00:41.240
  • AND SAID PASTOR, "FIRST THING I
  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:43.190
  • DO IS GIVE HALF OF IT
  • 00:00:43.190 --> 00:00:45.130
  • TO THE CHURCH."
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:46.220
  • AT THAT POINT THE PASTOR FELL
  • 00:00:46.220 --> 00:00:49.000
  • OVER DEAD.
  • 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:50.070
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT: THIS IS
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:52.140
  • MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:52.140 --> 00:00:53.010
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:00:53.010 --> 00:00:54.220
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:00:54.220 --> 00:00:56.170
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:00:56.170 --> 00:00:58.190
  • TODAY, I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:00:58.190 --> 00:01:00.230
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:00.230 --> 00:01:01.110
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS, MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:03.210
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE, I
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:06.010
  • WILL NEVER BE THE SAME,
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:08.000
  • IN JESUS'S NAME.
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.060
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:13.160
  • ABOUT, "LOOK AGAIN."
  • 00:01:13.160 --> 00:01:14.170
  • WE ALL HAVE DREAMS THAT WE'VE
  • 00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:16.060
  • DON'T THINK WE'LL TURN AROUND.
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:19.170
  • IT'S BEEN TOO LONG, WE'VE MADE
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:21.200
  • TOO MANY MISTAKES, TOO OFTEN WE
  • 00:01:21.200 --> 00:01:23.230
  • ACCEPT IT AS THE WAY, IT'S
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:25.180
  • ALWAYS GOING TO BE BUT JUST
  • 00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:27.130
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE GIVEN UP DOESN'T
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:29.080
  • MEAN THAT GOD HAS GIVEN UP.
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:31.150
  • HE HASN'T BROUGHT YOU THIS FAR
  • 00:01:31.150 --> 00:01:33.150
  • TO LEAVE YOU WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:01:33.150 --> 00:01:35.150
  • AND WHAT HE STARTED IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:37.260
  • HE'S GOING TO FINISH.
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:39.080
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD SOME
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:40.230
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS: THE MEDICAL
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:41.220
  • REPORT WASN'T GOOD, THE BUSINESS
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:43.160
  • DIDN'T MAKE IT, YOU STILL
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:45.100
  • HAVEN'T MET THE RIGHT PERSON.
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:47.040
  • IT MAY FEEL LIKE IT'S
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:48.240
  • OVER TO YOU, BUT GOD IS SAYING
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:51.050
  • LOOK AGAIN, THAT DREAM YOU'VE
  • 00:01:51.050 --> 00:01:52.280
  • GIVEN UP ON, I'M STILL GOING
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:55.040
  • TO BRING IT TO PASS.
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:56.200
  • THAT CHILD YOU THINK WE'LL NEVER
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:58.190
  • GET BACK ON COURSE, LOOK AGAIN,
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:00.210
  • HE'S GOING TO FULFILL HIS
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:01.290
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:03.000
  • YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:04.140
  • SINGLE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:05.290
  • LOOK AGAIN, GOD'S ALREADY LINED
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.230
  • UP SOMEBODY BETTER THAN YOU CAN
  • 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:09.290
  • IMAGINE.
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:11.070
  • NOW, DO YOUR PART AND START
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.270
  • LOOKING AGAIN.
  • 00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:14.090
  • AS LONG AS YOU THINK IT'S NEVER
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:16.080
  • GOING TO WORK OUT, IT'S BEEN
  • 00:02:16.080 --> 00:02:18.000
  • THIS WAY TOO LONG, THAT WILL
  • 00:02:18.000 --> 00:02:19.280
  • KEEP YOU FROM THE NEW THINGS GOD
  • 00:02:19.280 --> 00:02:21.270
  • HAS IN STORE.
  • 00:02:21.270 --> 00:02:23.050
  • WHO TOLD YOU YOU'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:25.080
  • TO LOVE AGAIN?
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:26.110
  • WHO TOLD YOU YOU'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:28.030
  • TO BE HEALTHY AGAIN?
  • 00:02:28.030 --> 00:02:29.080
  • WHO TOLD YOU YOU CAN'T
  • 00:02:29.080 --> 00:02:31.040
  • ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAM?
  • 00:02:31.040 --> 00:02:32.090
  • THAT DIDN'T COME FROM GOD.
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:34.000
  • DON'T BELIEVE THOSE LIES, START
  • 00:02:34.000 --> 00:02:36.180
  • LOOKING AGAIN.
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:37.190
  • MAYBE THE LOAN FOR THE HOUSE
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:39.170
  • DIDN'T GO THROUGH.
  • 00:02:39.170 --> 00:02:40.150
  • PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE FINAL SAY,
  • 00:02:40.150 --> 00:02:42.240
  • GOD DOES.
  • 00:02:42.240 --> 00:02:43.170
  • LOOK AGAIN, YOU WEREN'T ABLE
  • 00:02:43.170 --> 00:02:45.100
  • TO HAVE THE BABY--DON'T LET
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:47.140
  • THAT CONVINCE YOU THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.230
  • NEVER GOING TO HAVE IT, LOOK
  • 00:02:48.230 --> 00:02:50.110
  • AGAIN, THERE'S A BABY WITH YOUR
  • 00:02:50.110 --> 00:02:52.160
  • NAME ON THEM.
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:53.190
  • YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO BREAK
  • 00:02:53.190 --> 00:02:55.090
  • THE ADDICTION NOW YOU'RE
  • 00:02:55.090 --> 00:02:56.120
  • LEARNING TO LIVE WITH IT, LOOK
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.270
  • AGAIN, FREEDOM BELONGS TO YOU,
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.020
  • WHOLENESS IS IN YOUR FUTURE, GET
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:03.060
  • YOUR PASSION BACK, STIR UP YOUR
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:05.110
  • FAITH.
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:06.190
  • WHAT GOD PROMISED YOU HE'S STILL
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:08.140
  • GOING TO BRING TO PASS.
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:10.010
  • MARK CHAPTER 8 THEY BROUGHT
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:11.210
  • A BLIND MAN TO JESUS AND ASKED
  • 00:03:11.210 --> 00:03:14.030
  • HIM TO HEAL HIM.
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.230
  • JESUS MADE MUD AND PUT IT
  • 00:03:15.230 --> 00:03:17.180
  • ON THE BLIND MAN'S EYES
  • 00:03:17.180 --> 00:03:19.040
  • AND PRAYED FOR HIM.
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:20.160
  • HE ASKED HIM IF HE COULD SEE
  • 00:03:20.160 --> 00:03:22.120
  • ANYTHING HE SAID, "YES, I CAN
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:24.010
  • SEE BUT IT'S NOT CLEAR.
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:26.170
  • I SEE PEOPLE WALKING AS TREES."
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:29.140
  • JESUS PRAYED FOR HIM A SECOND
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:31.050
  • TIME.
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:32.060
  • THIS TIME HIS VISION WAS
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:34.130
  • PERFECTLY CLEAR.
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:35.110
  • IT'S SIGNIFICANT THAT JESUS
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:36.220
  • PRAYED FOR HIM THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:38.240
  • AND HE DIDN'T GET COMPLETELY
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:40.020
  • HEALED.
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:41.030
  • IT'S NOT LIKE JESUS DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:43.100
  • ENOUGH POWER THAT DAY OR SOMEHOW
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:45.170
  • HE MADE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:46.280
  • JESUS HEALED PEOPLE ALL
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:48.150
  • THE TIME; THIS WAS A TEST.
  • 00:03:48.150 --> 00:03:50.250
  • WHEN JESUS ASKED THE MAN IF HE
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:53.070
  • COULD SEE HE ALREADY KNEW THAT
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:55.090
  • HIS VISION WASN'T CLEAR.
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.040
  • HE WANTED TO SEE HOW THE MAN
  • 00:03:57.040 --> 00:04:00.030
  • WOULD RESPOND.
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:00.270
  • THE MAN COULD'VE SAID, "YES, I
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:03.030
  • CAN SEE.
  • 00:04:03.030 --> 00:04:03.250
  • IT'S NOT PERFECT, BUT I'M
  • 00:04:03.250 --> 00:04:06.020
  • SATISFIED.
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:06.170
  • THANKS FOR DOING THIS."
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:08.070
  • HE COULD'VE SETTLED FOR BLURRED
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:10.170
  • VISION.
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:11.010
  • HE COULD'VE WALKED AWAY
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:12.080
  • AND THOUGHT THIS IS NOT EXACTLY
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.040
  • WHAT I WAS BELIEVING
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:15.060
  • FOR BUT IT'S BETTER THAN IT WAS,
  • 00:04:15.060 --> 00:04:17.060
  • AT LEAST I CAN SEE SOMETHING.
  • 00:04:17.060 --> 00:04:19.070
  • IF HE WOULD'VE ACCEPTED IT HE
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:21.190
  • WOULD'VE MISSED GOD'S BEST.
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:23.080
  • HE HAD TO BE WILLING TO LOOK
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:24.270
  • AGAIN.
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:26.180
  • WHEN HE WASN'T COMPLETELY HEALED
  • 00:04:26.180 --> 00:04:28.170
  • HE WAS HONEST WITH JESUS.
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:30.170
  • HE COULD'VE BEEN INTIMIDATED--
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.280
  • THOUGHT THIS IS THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:34.120
  • THIS IS A RESPECTED HEALER, I
  • 00:04:34.120 --> 00:04:36.070
  • CAN'T TELL HIM THAT IT DIDN'T
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:38.030
  • WORK OUT.
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:39.120
  • I HAVE TO PRETEND THAT IT'S
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.040
  • ALL OKAY.
  • 00:04:41.040 --> 00:04:42.150
  • INSTEAD, HE WAS VULNERABLE, TOOK
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:44.150
  • A LOT OF NERVE TO SAY, "I CAN'T
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:47.210
  • SEE CLEARLY, IT'S NOT WHAT IT
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:50.060
  • SHOULD BE."
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:51.020
  • JESUS DIDN'T GET UPSET, SAY,
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:52.290
  • "YOU NEED TO HAVE MORE FAITH.
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:55.100
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:04:56.190
  • I HEAL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME."
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:58.060
  • JESUS DIDN'T CONDEMN HIM, DIDN'T
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:05:00.040
  • MAKE HIM FEEL LESS THAN, HE
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:02.130
  • TOUCHED HIM, AND SAID IN EFFECT,
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:05.180
  • "LOOK AGAIN."
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:06.210
  • HE WAS SAYING IT'S OKAY THAT
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:08.200
  • YOU'RE NOT WHERE YOU THOUGHT YOU
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.200
  • WOULD BE.
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:11.280
  • IT'S OKAY THAT YOU CAN'T SEE
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:14.000
  • CLEARLY, YET, I'M NOT
  • 00:05:14.000 --> 00:05:15.120
  • THROUGH WITH YOU, I HAVE
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:17.140
  • A SECOND TOUCH.
  • 00:05:17.140 --> 00:05:18.220
  • GOD ALREADY KNEW WHAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:20.220
  • WORK OUT THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:22.230
  • HE KNEW THE MEDICAL REPORT
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:24.140
  • WOULDN'T BE GOOD.
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:25.160
  • HE KNEW YOU WOULDN'T GET
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:27.010
  • THE PROMOTION.
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:27.200
  • HE KNEW THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:29.080
  • WOULDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:30.160
  • LIKE THIS MAN, HE'S WAITING
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.100
  • TO SEE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO.
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:34.270
  • ARE YOU GOING TO SETTLE THERE
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:36.180
  • AND THINK, "I'M LONELY, BUT IT'S
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:38.100
  • OKAY.
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:39.190
  • I'M BARELY MAKING IT BUT HEY, I
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:41.030
  • GOT A ROOF OVER MY HEAD.
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:42.120
  • MY DREAMS HAVEN'T WORKED
  • 00:05:42.120 --> 00:05:43.260
  • OUT BUT I'M DOING GOOD ENOUGH."
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:46.040
  • DON'T SETTLE FOR BLURRED VISION.
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:48.250
  • DON'T GIVE UP ON WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.220
  • PUT IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:51.260
  • HE HAS A SECOND TOUCH.
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.270
  • HE'S WAITING FOR YOU TO LOOK
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:55.220
  • AGAIN.
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:56.250
  • THE FIRST TOUCH BROUGHT YOU
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:58.080
  • TO WHERE YOU ARE, THE SECOND
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:06:00.030
  • TOUCH IS GOING TO THRUST YOU
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:02.090
  • INTO ABUNDANCE, INTO GREAT
  • 00:06:02.090 --> 00:06:03.250
  • RELATIONSHIPS, INTO DIVINE
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.130
  • HEALTH, INTO THE FULLNESS
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:07.180
  • OF YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:09.080
  • I TALKED TO A YOUNG LADY THAT
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:10.250
  • HAD GONE THROUGH SIX
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:11.210
  • MISCARRIAGES AND SHE WAS
  • 00:06:11.210 --> 00:06:13.170
  • SO DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:14.140
  • SHE HAD BIG TEARS RUNNING
  • 00:06:14.140 --> 00:06:16.070
  • DOWN HER CHEEKS.
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.100
  • SHE HAD DECIDED THAT SHE WASN'T
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:19.110
  • GOING TO TRY ANYMORE.
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.230
  • THE DOCTORS TOLD HER IT WOULD
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:22.120
  • CONTINUE TO HAPPEN, FOR SOME
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:23.250
  • REASON HER WOMB COULDN'T CARRY
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:25.290
  • THE BABY.
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:26.250
  • I TOLD HER WHAT I'M TELLING YOU:
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:29.000
  • YOU HAVE TO LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:30.170
  • THERE'S A BABY THAT BELONGS
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:32.200
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:06:32.200 --> 00:06:33.160
  • SOMETIMES THE MOST DIFFICULT
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:35.050
  • PRAYER IS THE PRAYER FOR WHAT
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:37.180
  • HASN'T WORKED OUT.
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:39.030
  • THE PRAYER FOR WHAT WE FAILED
  • 00:06:39.030 --> 00:06:40.260
  • AT: TO PRAY AGAIN FOR THE BABY,
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:42.280
  • TO BELIEVE AGAIN FOR THE DREAM.
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.280
  • THIS IS WHEN MANY PEOPLE GET
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:47.070
  • TALKED OUT OF GOD'S BEST.
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:49.040
  • TOOK TO HEART WHAT I SAID.
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:52.230
  • HER ATTITUDE CHANGED.
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:54.140
  • I COULD SEE FAITH AND HOPE
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:56.190
  • IN HER EYES.
  • 00:06:56.190 --> 00:06:57.220
  • A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER I SAW
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.190
  • HER AFTER THE SERVICE.
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:00.230
  • SHE WAS CARRYING A BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:03.000
  • BABY GIRL.
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:03.270
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET THE LOOK
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:05.130
  • ON THIS YOUNG LADY'S FACE; SHE
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:07.080
  • WAS BEAMING WITH JOY.
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:09.020
  • SHE SAID, "JOEL, MY DOCTORS ARE
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:10.130
  • AMAZED.
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:11.120
  • THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND IT BUT I
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:13.050
  • KNOW IT WAS THE GOODNESS
  • 00:07:13.050 --> 00:07:14.200
  • OF GOD."
  • 00:07:14.200 --> 00:07:15.280
  • FRIENDS, GOD CONTROLS
  • 00:07:15.280 --> 00:07:17.140
  • THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:07:17.140 --> 00:07:18.130
  • DO.
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:21.120
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD
  • 00:07:21.120 --> 00:07:22.280
  • A DISAPPOINTMENT, DON'T SETTLE
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:24.140
  • WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:25.240
  • WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT,
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:28.000
  • BUT JOY IS COMING
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:29.140
  • IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:30.230
  • IF IT DIDN'T WORK OUT THE FIRST
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:32.280
  • TIME, LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:33.270
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT THE SECOND TIME,
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:36.020
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:36.240
  • KEEP LOOKING, KEEP DREAMING,
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.150
  • KEEP PRAYING LIKE THIS YOUNG
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:40.190
  • LADY, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.280
  • GOD PROMISED YOU.
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:44.040
  • THERE HAD BEEN A DROUGHT
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:47.070
  • IN SAMARIA FOR THREE AND A HALF
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:48.290
  • YEARS.
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:50.080
  • IT WAS SO SEVERE PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:52.140
  • BARELY SURVIVING, BARELY HAD
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:53.290
  • ENOUGH FOOD.
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:55.070
  • AND GOD SPOKE TO HIM AND TOLD
  • 00:07:55.070 --> 00:07:57.080
  • HIM IT WAS GOING TO RAIN.
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:59.010
  • HE WENT UP ON MOUNT CARMEL
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:01.000
  • AND BEGAN TO PRAY AND THANK GOD
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:03.080
  • ASSISTANT, "GO OUT AND LOOK
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.120
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:08.140
  • OF THE MOUNTAIN AND SEE IF THERE
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:10.110
  • IS ANY SIGN OF RAIN."
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:12.120
  • THE YOUNG MAN WENT OUT AND CAME
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:14.070
  • BACK A LITTLE LATER, SAID, "NO,
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:15.240
  • ELIJAH, THERE'S NOT A CLOUD
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.100
  • IN THE SKY, IT'S JUST AS CLEAR
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:19.160
  • AS CAN BE."
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:21.000
  • ELIJAH COULD HAVE BECOME
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.260
  • DISCOURAGED, THOUGHT, GOD YOU
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:24.210
  • SAID IT WAS GOING TO RAIN, MAYBE
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.140
  • I HEARD YOU WRONG, THERE'S NO
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:28.000
  • SIGN OF IT.
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:29.090
  • ELIJAH UNDERSTOOD THIS
  • 00:08:29.090 --> 00:08:30.240
  • PRINCIPLE: WHAT GOD PROMISED HE
  • 00:08:30.240 --> 00:08:33.090
  • WILL BRING TO PASS.
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.290
  • AND LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:38.250
  • HE CAME BACK THE SECOND TIME--
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:40.160
  • SAME THING.
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:41.030
  • NOTHING, ELIJAH, PERFECTLY
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:43.160
  • CLEAR.
  • 00:08:43.160 --> 00:08:44.110
  • ELIJAH DIDN'T LET THESE NEGATIVE
  • 00:08:44.110 --> 00:08:46.030
  • REPORTS TALK HIM OUT OF IT.
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:48.080
  • HE TOLD HIM TO GO BACK AND LOOK
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:50.060
  • AGAIN.
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:51.040
  • THIRD TIME, NOTHING.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.130
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:53.210
  • FOURTH TIME, NOTHING.
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:54.200
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:55.280
  • DON'T YOU KNOW THOUGHTS CAME
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.050
  • TO ELIJAH SAYING YOU ARE WASTING
  • 00:08:59.050 --> 00:09:01.030
  • HIS TIME?
  • 00:09:01.030 --> 00:09:02.120
  • CAN'T YOU GET THE MESSAGE?
  • 00:09:02.120 --> 00:09:03.200
  • FIVE TIMES.
  • 00:09:03.200 --> 00:09:04.290
  • THIS DROUGHT IS PERMANENT, JUST
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:06.280
  • ACCEPT IT.
  • 00:09:06.280 --> 00:09:07.230
  • HE LET THOSE THOUGHTS GO IN ONE
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.220
  • EAR AND OUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:11.040
  • HIS ATTITUDE WAS I KNOW IT'S
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:13.010
  • ON THE WAY, ANY MOMENT IT'S
  • 00:09:13.010 --> 00:09:14.290
  • GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:09:14.290 --> 00:09:16.190
  • THIS EXPECTANCY LOOKING FOR IT,
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.230
  • BELIEVING IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:09:18.230 --> 00:09:20.280
  • THAT'S YOUR FAITH BEING
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:22.220
  • RELEASED.
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:23.070
  • AMAZING THINGS.
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:26.240
  • THE YOUNG MAN CAME BACK
  • 00:09:26.240 --> 00:09:27.240
  • THE SIXTH TIME AND SAID,
  • 00:09:27.240 --> 00:09:28.250
  • "ELIJAH, STILL NOTHING.
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:30.290
  • HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO DO
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:31.210
  • THIS?
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:32.170
  • I'M GETTING TIRED."
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:34.050
  • ELIJAH SAID, "DO ME A FAVOR; GO
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:36.250
  • BACK AND LOOK AGAIN."
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:38.110
  • ON THE SEVENTH TIME, THE YOUNG
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:40.100
  • MAN CAME BACK AND SAID, "THIS
  • 00:09:40.100 --> 00:09:42.100
  • STARTING TO FORM.
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:46.100
  • IT'S NOT MUCH, DON'T GET YOUR
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:48.070
  • HOPES UP, JUST ABOUT THE SIZE
  • 00:09:48.070 --> 00:09:50.050
  • OF A MAN'S HAND."
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:52.010
  • ELIJAH SENT WORD TO THE KING
  • 00:09:52.010 --> 00:09:53.200
  • SAYING, "YOU NEED TO GET IN YOUR
  • 00:09:53.200 --> 00:09:55.200
  • CHARIOT AND TAKE OFF--THERE'S
  • 00:09:55.200 --> 00:09:57.160
  • ABOUT TO BE A DOWNPOUR."
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:59.120
  • IT WASN'T ANY TIME
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:00.240
  • BEFORE THE HEAVENS OPENED
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:02.070
  • UP THE THREE AND A HALF YEAR
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:04.190
  • DROUGHT CAME TO AN END.
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:06.110
  • I WONDER IF ELIJAH WOULD'VE SEEN
  • 00:10:06.110 --> 00:10:08.140
  • THE RAIN IF HE'D HAVE GIVEN
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:10.180
  • UP AFTER THE FIRST TIME OR THIRD
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:13.120
  • TIME OR FIFTH TIME?
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:15.010
  • WHAT IF HE'D COME
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:16.030
  • OFF THE MOUNTAIN?
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:16.290
  • THOUGHT THIS DROUGHT IS JUST
  • 00:10:16.290 --> 00:10:18.260
  • MEANT TO BE.
  • 00:10:18.260 --> 00:10:20.020
  • IF HE WOULD'VE ACCEPTED IT WE
  • 00:10:20.020 --> 00:10:22.050
  • WOULDN'T BE TALKING ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:23.280
  • YOU HAVE TO DO LIKE ELIJAH
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.210
  • AND HAVE A MADE UP MIND THAT YOU
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:28.020
  • ARE GOING TO KEEP LOOKING
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.200
  • UNTIL YOU SEE THE PROMISE COME
  • 00:10:29.200 --> 00:10:31.180
  • TO PASS.
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:32.280
  • THE MEDICAL REPORT MAY NOT BE
  • 00:10:32.280 --> 00:10:35.010
  • GOOD; LOOK AGAIN, HEALING IS
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.230
  • ON THE WAY.
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:38.030
  • YOU DON'T SEE HOW YOU COULD GET
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:40.000
  • OUT OF DEBT; LOOK AGAIN,
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.110
  • ABUNDANCE IS IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:43.240
  • YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO BREAK
  • 00:10:43.240 --> 00:10:45.150
  • THE ADDICTION.
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:46.020
  • "JOEL, AND I WENT TO REHAB."
  • 00:10:46.020 --> 00:10:47.160
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.240
  • "I WENT TO COUNSELING."
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:50.040
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:50.230
  • "I PRAYED AND IT HASN'T
  • 00:10:50.230 --> 00:10:51.160
  • HAPPENED."
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:52.020
  • LOOK AGAIN.
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.200
  • WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE IS WHILE
  • 00:10:53.200 --> 00:10:55.210
  • YOU'RE LOOKING GOD IS
  • 00:10:55.210 --> 00:10:57.120
  • BEHIND THE SCENES LINING
  • 00:10:57.120 --> 00:10:59.030
  • GOOD BREAKS, HEALING, PROMOTION,
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:04.050
  • DELIVERANCE.
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:04.260
  • THAT CLOUD IS STARTING TO FORM.
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.230
  • YOU MAY BE IN A DROUGHT TODAY,
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:09.240
  • YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING A LONGTIME,
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.080
  • FAITHFUL, DOING THE RIGHT THING,
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:13.010
  • GOOD.
  • 00:11:15.070 --> 00:11:16.030
  • GOD IS SAYING, YOU'RE
  • 00:11:16.030 --> 00:11:17.150
  • ABOUT TO COME INTO YOUR SEVENTH
  • 00:11:17.150 --> 00:11:19.040
  • TIME.
  • 00:11:19.040 --> 00:11:20.130
  • YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE A SIGN
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.110
  • OF WHAT GOD IS DOING.
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:24.010
  • DON'T LET THE LITTLE CLOUD FOOL

  • AN ABUNDANCE OF HEALING,
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:34.240

  • YOU WOULDN'T BE ALIVE UNLESS GOD
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:52.110
  • HAD SOMETHING AMAZING
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:53.150
  • THERE WAS A LADY
  • 00:12:55.190 --> 00:12:56.130
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE NAMED
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:57.110
  • ELIZABETH.
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:58.190
  • SHE WAS MARRIED TO ZECHARIAH
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:13:00.050
  • AND SHE HAD BEEN BARREN FOR MANY
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:02.080
  • YEARS AND NOT ABLE TO HAVE
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:04.150
  • A CHILD.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:05.080
  • THEY WERE BOTH VERY OLD WHEN
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:07.130
  • AN ANGEL APPEARED TO HER HUSBAND
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:09.180
  • AND SAID ELIZABETH WAS GOING
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:10.220
  • TO HAVE A BABY AND THEY WERE
  • 00:13:10.220 --> 00:13:12.110
  • TO NAME HIM JOHN.
  • 00:13:12.110 --> 00:13:14.030
  • SO HAPPY AFTER YEARS OF BEING
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:18.140
  • BARREN, THIS WAS A DREAM COME
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:19.290
  • TRUE.
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:21.000
  • SHE WAS FINALLY PREGNANT.
  • 00:13:21.000 --> 00:13:22.260
  • THE FIRST FEW MONTHS EVERYTHING
  • 00:13:22.260 --> 00:13:24.240
  • WAS GREAT.
  • 00:13:24.240 --> 00:13:25.180
  • I CAN IMAGINE SHE WAS GETTING
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:27.180
  • THE BABY'S ROOM PREPARED
  • 00:13:27.180 --> 00:13:29.000
  • AND FRIENDS WERE COMING
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:30.090
  • OVER CELEBRATING WITH HER.
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:31.180
  • SHE'D NEVER BEEN THIS EXCITED,
  • 00:13:31.180 --> 00:13:33.240
  • BUT AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS SHE
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:36.000
  • STARTED TO GET WORRIED.
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:37.210
  • SHE DIDN'T FEEL ANY MOVEMENT
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:39.190
  • IN THE WOMB.
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:40.240
  • FOUR MONTHS, NO MOVEMENT.
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:42.230
  • FIVE MONTHS, NO MOVEMENT.
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:44.140
  • SIX MONTHS, STILL NO MOVEMENT.
  • 00:13:44.140 --> 00:13:46.230
  • THOUGHTS STARTED TELLING HER
  • 00:13:46.230 --> 00:13:48.050
  • DON'T BE TOO HAPPY, THIS IS NOT
  • 00:13:48.050 --> 00:13:50.180
  • GOING TO HAVE A GOOD ENDING;
  • 00:13:50.180 --> 00:13:53.020
  • YOUR BABY IS NOT ALIVE.
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:55.040
  • ABOUT THAT TIME, THERE WAS
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:56.210
  • A KNOCK ON HER DOOR.
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:58.090
  • IT WAS HER COUSIN, A YOUNG LADY
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:01.080
  • NAMED MARY.
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:02.030
  • AN ANGEL HAD JUST APPEARED
  • 00:14:02.030 --> 00:14:03.190
  • TO MARY AND SAID SHE WAS GOING
  • 00:14:03.190 --> 00:14:05.240
  • TO HAVE A BABY WITHOUT KNOWING
  • 00:14:05.240 --> 00:14:07.140
  • A MAN AND HE WOULD BE THE SON
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:09.210
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:14:09.210 --> 00:14:10.290
  • THE ANGEL SAID THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:14:13.010 --> 00:14:14.190
  • WILL COME ON YOU AND CAUSE YOU
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:16.190
  • TO CONCEIVE FOR WITH GOD NOTHING
  • 00:14:17.090 --> 00:14:20.090
  • IS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:14:20.090 --> 00:14:21.160
  • WHEN ELIZABETH ANSWERED THE DOOR
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:23.260
  • AND SAW MARY STANDING THERE
  • 00:14:23.260 --> 00:14:26.060
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS AT THE SOUND
  • 00:14:26.060 --> 00:14:28.220
  • OF MARY'S GREETING THE BABY
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:30.270
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME SHE KNEW HER
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:36.090
  • BABY WAS ALIVE.
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:37.190
  • WHY DID THAT BABY LEAP WHEN MARY
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:40.090
  • GREETED HER?
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:41.020
  • MARY WAS CARRYING IN HER SPIRIT,
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:43.090
  • WHAT THE ANGEL HAD JUST TOLD
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:45.170
  • HER: WITH GOD NOTHING IS
  • 00:14:45.170 --> 00:14:48.100
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:48.270
  • WHAT HE PROMISED HE WILL BRING
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:51.000
  • TO PASS.
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:51.210
  • WHEN MARY SIMPLY SAID, "HELLO
  • 00:14:51.210 --> 00:14:54.040
  • ELIZABETH," THE FAITH IN HER
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:56.180
  • VOICE BROUGHT TO LIFE
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:58.210
  • THE PROMISE IN ELIZABETH'S WOMB.
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:01.130
  • YOU MAY BE CARRYING SOMETHING
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:03.010
  • TODAY THAT YOU FEEL LIKE IS
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:04.290
  • DEAD: A DREAM, A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:15:05.090 --> 00:15:08.090
  • A PROMISE.
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.200
  • YOU KNOW GOD GAVE IT TO YOU.
  • 00:15:09.200 --> 00:15:11.280
  • YOU USED TO BE EXCITED.
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.220
  • YOU USED TO TELL PEOPLE, BUT YOU
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:16.080
  • HAVEN'T FELT ANY MOVEMENT.
  • 00:15:16.080 --> 00:15:17.220
  • YOU DON'T SEE ANY SIGN OF IT
  • 00:15:17.220 --> 00:15:19.040
  • HAPPENING.
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:20.030
  • IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME, AND YOU
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.240
  • DON'T SEE HOW YOU'LL GET WELL
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:23.080
  • OR HOW YOUR MARRIAGE WILL MAKE
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:24.180
  • IT.
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:25.170
  • HOW YOU'LL START THAT BUSINESS.
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:27.100
  • THE BABY FEELS LIKE IT'S NOT
  • 00:15:27.100 --> 00:15:29.270
  • ALIVE ANYMORE, BUT SOMETIMES ALL
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:32.020
  • YOU NEED IS FOR SOMEONE
  • 00:15:32.020 --> 00:15:33.280

  • LIFE INTO YOUR SPIRIT AND I

  • SOMETHING STIRRING
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:41.250
  • ON THE INSIDE, THE REASON FAITH

  • NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:17:45.180 --> 00:17:47.000
  • THAT SETBACK DIDN'T CANCEL GOD'S

  • PLAN; IT WAS A SETUP FOR GOD
  • 00:17:49.030 --> 00:17:52.010
  • TO TAKE YOU FURTHER.
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:54.000

  • HE'D BEEN OUT OF MEDICINE

  • DOING.
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.110
  • PAUL AGREED AND WHEN HE WAS

  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:09.290
  • THEY SAID WE NEED YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:11.280
  • PAUL UNEXPECTEDLY CAME
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:13.190
  • OUT OF RETIREMENT THAT DAY
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:15.200

  • OVER, HE THOUGHT HE STEPPED

  • YOU GAVE UP DOESN'T MEAN GOD HAS
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:32.090

  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:54.210
  • THE DREAM WAS PUT IN HIS HEART
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:56.240
  • YEAR OLD BOY.
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:01.100
  • AT 12, THAT WAS THE FIRST

  • TOUCH--WHEN THE DREAM WAS
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:05.030
  • PLANTED IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.140
  • AT 56, THAT WAS THE SECOND TOUCH
  • 00:20:06.140 --> 00:20:08.240
  • WHERE GOD TOOK HIM TO A NEW
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:11.050
  • LEVEL OF HIS DESTINY.
  • 00:20:11.050 --> 00:20:13.030
  • WHAT AM I SAYING?
  • 00:20:13.030 --> 00:20:14.120
  • HE'S GOING TO FINISH.
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:18.000
  • IS THERE SOMETHING YOU'VE GIVEN
  • 00:20:18.000 --> 00:20:19.250
  • UP ON?
  • 00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:20.180
  • DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT COULD EVER
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:22.070

  • IT'S BEEN TOO LONG, YOU'VE
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:24.130
  • MISSED TOO MANY OPPORTUNITIES?

  • LOOK AGAIN, GOD WOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:27.170
  • GIVEN YOU THE DREAM IF HE WASN'T
  • 00:20:27.170 --> 00:20:30.040
  • STILL PLANNING ON BRINGING IT
  • 00:20:30.040 --> 00:20:32.040
  • TO PASS.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:32.270
  • DON'T TALK YOURSELF OUT OF IT.
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:34.230

  • COMING.
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:39.170
  • DARE TO SAY LIKE THE BLIND MAN:
  • 00:20:39.170 --> 00:20:42.110
  • "GOD, I CAN'T SEE CLEARLY.
  • 00:20:42.110 --> 00:20:44.110

  • I'M GRATEFUL, BUT I'M ASKING
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:50.020
  • FOR THE FULLNESS OF MY DESTINY.
  • 00:20:50.020 --> 00:20:52.190
  • PUT IN ME AS A CHILD.

  • CREATED ME TO BE."
  • 00:20:58.210 --> 00:21:00.060
  • WHEN YOU'RE HONEST WITH GOD,
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:02.010
  • WHEN YOU'RE BOLD ENOUGH TO ASK,
  • 00:21:02.010 --> 00:21:04.070
