  • 00:00:09.290 --> 00:00:12.290
  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL, GOD
  • 00:00:12.290 --> 00:00:13.200
  • BLESS YOU. IT'S A JOY TO
  • 00:00:13.200 --> 00:00:14.280
  • IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR AREA
  • 00:00:16.150 --> 00:00:17.250
  • PLEASE STOP BY AND BE A
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.040
  • PART OF ONE OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:20.190
  • I PROMISE YOU WE'LL MAKE
  • 00:00:20.190 --> 00:00:21.290
  • YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:21.290 --> 00:00:23.220
  • I LIKE TO START WITH
  • 00:00:23.220 --> 00:00:24.200
  • SOMETHING FUNNY.
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:25.240
  • ONE DAY, THIS YOUNG MAN WAS
  • 00:00:25.240 --> 00:00:26.290
  • TALKING TO GOD AND HE SAID,
  • 00:00:26.290 --> 00:00:28.210
  • "GOD, WHAT'S A MILLION YEARS
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:30.190
  • "A MILLION YEARS TO ME IS
  • 00:00:32.140 --> 00:00:33.230
  • LIKE ONE SECOND TO YOU."
  • 00:00:33.230 --> 00:00:35.260
  • HE SAID, "WELL, GOD WHAT'S
  • 00:00:35.260 --> 00:00:36.240
  • A MILLION DOLLARS LIKE TO
  • 00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:38.020
  • YOU?" GOD SAID, "A MILLION
  • 00:00:38.020 --> 00:00:39.260
  • DOLLARS TO ME IS LIKE ONE
  • 00:00:39.260 --> 00:00:41.140
  • PENNY TO YOU."
  • 00:00:41.140 --> 00:00:42.260
  • HE THOUGHT ABOUT IT A
  • 00:00:42.260 --> 00:00:43.240
  • MOMENT. HE SAID, "GOD WILL
  • 00:00:43.240 --> 00:00:44.220
  • YOU GIVE ME A PENNY?"
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:46.020
  • GOD SAID, "SURE. JUST A
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:47.140
  • SECOND."
  • 00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:49.160
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT:
  • 00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:50.280
  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE. I AM
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:00:51.270
  • WHAT IT SAYS I AM. I HAVE
  • 00:00:51.270 --> 00:00:52.250
  • WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE. I CAN
  • 00:00:52.250 --> 00:00:54.110
  • DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:00:54.220 --> 00:00:57.220
  • TODAY, I WILL BE TAUGHT THE
  • 00:00:57.220 --> 00:00:59.060
  • WORD OF GOD. I BOLDLY
  • 00:00:59.060 --> 00:01:01.020
  • CONFESS: MY MIND IS ALERT,
  • 00:01:01.020 --> 00:01:03.130
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:03.130 --> 00:01:04.280
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME,
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.140
  • IN JESUS' NAME."
  • 00:01:06.140 --> 00:01:08.040
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:08.040 --> 00:01:09.030
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:11.030
  • ABOUT, "PIT PRAISERS."
  • 00:01:11.030 --> 00:01:13.130
  • IT'S EASY TO GIVE GOD PRAISE
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:14.280
  • WHEN THINGS ARE GOING GOOD.
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:16.160
  • THAT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:17.150
  • FAITH. BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:19.160
  • BUSINESS SLOWS DOWN,
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:21.030
  • SOMEBODY DOES US WRONG, THE
  • 00:01:21.030 --> 00:01:22.260
  • MEDICAL REPORT SAYS WE'RE
  • 00:01:22.260 --> 00:01:23.270
  • WE ALL HAVE TIMES WHERE
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:26.220
  • WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE IN THE
  • 00:01:26.220 --> 00:01:27.290
  • PITS. LIFE HAS THROWN US
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:29.260
  • A CURVE. IT'S EASY TO GET
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:31.190
  • DISCOURAGED AND GO AROUND
  • 00:01:31.190 --> 00:01:33.090
  • NEGATIVE. WE THINK WHEN IT
  • 00:01:33.090 --> 00:01:35.120
  • TURNS AROUND, THEN I'LL
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:36.290
  • HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE.
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:38.150
  • WHEN MY HEALTH IMPROVES,
  • 00:01:38.150 --> 00:01:39.280
  • THEN I'LL BE GRATEFUL.
  • 00:01:39.280 --> 00:01:41.140
  • WHEN I GET OUT OF THIS
  • 00:01:41.140 --> 00:01:42.120
  • MESS, JOEL. WHEN I BREAK
  • 00:01:42.120 --> 00:01:43.210
  • THIS ADDICTION, THEN I'LL
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:44.270
  • GET MY JOY BACK.
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:46.150
  • BUT THAT'S BACKWARD. YOU
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:47.280
  • HAVE TO GIVE GOD PRAISE
  • 00:01:47.280 --> 00:01:49.110
  • FIRST. PRAISE IS WHAT
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:51.090
  • CAUSES THINGS TO TURN
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.140
  • AROUND. PRAISE IS WHAT
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:54.080
  • BREAKS BONDAGES THAT ARE
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:55.150
  • ACTIVATES GOD'S FAVOR.
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:59.130
  • DON'T WAIT TILL YOU GET OUT
  • 00:01:59.130 --> 00:02:00.200
  • OF THE PIT. BE A PIT PRAISER.
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:03.060
  • PRAISE HIM IN SPITE OF WHAT
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:04.140
  • HASN'T WORKED OUT. PRAISE
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:05.290
  • HIM IN SPITE OF WHAT YOU
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:06.270
  • LOST. ANY OF US CAN GIVE
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:08.250
  • GOD PRAISE WHEN WE'RE ON
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.090
  • THE MOUNTAINTOP. THE REAL
  • 00:02:10.090 --> 00:02:11.250
  • IN THE VALLEY? WILL YOU
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.070
  • WORSHIP HIM IN THE
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:16.050
  • WILDERNESS? WILL YOU SHOUT
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:17.200
  • WHEN THE WALLS AREN'T
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:18.180
  • FALLING? WILL YOU BE A
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:19.240
  • THIS IS WHAT JOSEPH HAD
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:22.190
  • TO DO. WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG
  • 00:02:22.190 --> 00:02:24.060
  • MAN, GOD GAVE HIM A DREAM
  • 00:02:24.060 --> 00:02:25.280
  • THAT ONE DAY HE WOULD RULE
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:27.080
  • A NATION, AND THAT HIS
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:28.200
  • BROTHERS WOULD BOW DOWN
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:29.210
  • BEFORE HIM. HE WAS EXCITED.
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:31.280
  • HE KNEW GOD'S FAVOR WAS ON
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.080
  • HIS LIFE. HE SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:02:33.080 --> 00:02:35.020
  • BEEN MORE DISCREET AND KEPT
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:36.210
  • IT TO HIMSELF. BUT HE WENT
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:38.000
  • AROUND TELLING PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:38.000 --> 00:02:39.190
  • THE FACT THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:42.000
  • GOING TO BOW DOWN. THEY
  • 00:02:42.000 --> 00:02:43.160
  • WERE ALREADY JEALOUS
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:45.040
  • BECAUSE JOSEPH WAS THE
  • 00:02:45.040 --> 00:02:46.120
  • YOUNGEST SON AND HIS
  • 00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:47.170
  • AND ONE DAY, JOSEPH'S
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:50.270
  • FATHER ASKED HIM TO GO
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:52.000
  • CHECK ON HIS BROTHERS.
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.170
  • THEY WERE IN ANOTHER CITY
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.270
  • TAKING CARE OF THE SHEEP.
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.220
  • WHEN THEY SAW JOSEPH
  • 00:02:56.220 --> 00:02:57.270
  • COMING, THEY THOUGHT, "THIS
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:02:59.150
  • IS OUR CHANCE TO GET RID
  • 00:02:59.150 --> 00:03:01.030
  • OF JOSEPH. WE'LL TELL OUR
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:02.230
  • FATHER THAT HE WAS EATEN
  • 00:03:02.230 --> 00:03:04.090
  • BY A WILD ANIMAL." THEY
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.060
  • GRABBED JOSEPH AND THREW
  • 00:03:06.060 --> 00:03:07.160
  • HIM INTO A PIT, A DEEP
  • 00:03:07.160 --> 00:03:09.130
  • WELL. THEY WERE GOING TO
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:10.240
  • BUT WHEN GOD PUTS A PROMISE
  • 00:03:12.180 --> 00:03:14.030
  • IN YOUR HEART, PEOPLE CAN'T
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.210
  • STOP YOU. BAD BREAKS CAN'T
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:17.200
  • STOP YOU. BETRAYAL,
  • 00:03:17.200 --> 00:03:18.250
  • REJECTION. PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:20.120
  • HAVE THE FINAL SAY, GOD
  • 00:03:20.120 --> 00:03:22.020
  • DOES. BUT THE DREAM GOD
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:24.140
  • PUT IN YOU IS NOT GOING
  • 00:03:24.140 --> 00:03:26.080
  • TO COME TO PASS WITHOUT
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:27.220
  • OPPOSITION. THERE WILL BE
  • 00:03:27.220 --> 00:03:29.160
  • TIMES IT'S NOT FAIR, IT
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:31.170
  • DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. DON'T
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.060
  • GET BITTER. IT'S ALL A PART
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.270
  • OF GOD'S PLAN. IT LOOKS
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:36.230
  • LIKE A SETBACK. THE TRUTH
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.180
  • IS IT'S A SET UP TO MOVE
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:40.190
  • THE KEY IS WHAT YOU DO WHEN
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:44.270
  • YOU'RE IN THE PIT, WHEN
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:46.160
  • LIFE HAS TAKEN AN UNEXPECTED
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:48.080
  • TURN. A RELATIONSHIP DIDN'T
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:50.030
  • WORK OUT. YOU LOST A LOVED
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:52.010
  • IT'S TEMPTING TO GET SOUR,
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:55.230
  • GO AROUND COMPLAINING,
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:56.290
  • TALKING ABOUT HOW IT'S NOT
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:03:58.030
  • GOING TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:03:59.140
  • ALL THAT'S GOING TO DO IS
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:00.270
  • JOSEPH'S BROTHERS WERE UP
  • 00:04:03.000 --> 00:04:04.040
  • HAVING LUNCH WHILE HE WAS
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:05.180
  • IN THE PIT. THEY SAW THIS
  • 00:04:05.180 --> 00:04:07.110
  • CARAVAN OF ISHMAELITE'S
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:09.020
  • HEADED THEIR WAY. ONE OF
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.210
  • THE BROTHERS NAMED JUDAH
  • 00:04:10.210 --> 00:04:12.180
  • SAID, "WHAT DOES IT PROFIT
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:14.010
  • US TO KILL JOSEPH? LET'S
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:15.250
  • SELL HIM. LET'S MAKE SOME
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:17.090
  • MONEY." THEY BROUGHT
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:18.220
  • JOSEPH OUT OF THE PIT AND
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:20.110
  • SOLD HIM AS A SLAVE TO THE
  • 00:04:20.110 --> 00:04:22.110
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THE
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.040
  • NAME JUDAH, THE BROTHER
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.290
  • THAT SAVED JOSEPH'S LIFE,
  • 00:04:26.290 --> 00:04:28.240
  • MEANS "PRAISE". GOD WAS
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:30.270
  • SHOWING US PRAISE PROTECTS
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:33.020
  • BROTHERS WERE SAYING,
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:35.200
  • "LET'S KILL HIM. LET'S
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.180
  • LEAVE HIM HERE TO DIE."
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:37.160
  • BUT PRAISE ROSE UP AND
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:39.060
  • SAID, "NO, WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.060
  • LET HIM LIVE." PRAISE
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:42.020
  • CHANGED THE OPPOSITION'S
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.150
  • MIND. PRAISE PUSHED BACK
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:45.170
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PIT,
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.080
  • DON'T COMPLAIN. TURN UP
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:49.290
  • YOUR PRAISE. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.150
  • PROTECT YOUR DREAM. THE WAY
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.140
  • YOU DO IT IS BY HAVING
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:54.280
  • "FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.240
  • ARE FIGHTING MY BATTLE.
  • 00:04:57.240 --> 00:04:59.110
  • YES, THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM.
  • 00:04:59.110 --> 00:05:01.030
  • BUT I KNOW YOU'RE A BIG
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:02.010
  • GOD. YOU FLUNG STARS INTO
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:03.290
  • SPACE. NOTHING'S TOO
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.090
  • DIFFICULT FOR YOU."
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:06.190
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "THE
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:08.130
  • SPIRIT OF FAITH IS IN OUR
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:11.020
  • WORDS."
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:12.000
  • WHAT KIND OF WORDS ARE
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:12.280
  • ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT HOW
  • 00:05:14.120 --> 00:05:15.190
  • BIG YOUR PROBLEM IS? OR ARE
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:17.100
  • YOU TALKING ABOUT HOW BIG
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.210
  • YOUR GOD IS? ARE YOU
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:20.130
  • COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PIT?
  • 00:05:20.130 --> 00:05:22.070
  • FOCUSED ON WHAT WASN'T
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:23.080
  • FAIR? OR WHO DID YOU WRONG?
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:25.130
  • YOU HAVE TO WAKE UP JUDAH.
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:27.170
  • JUDAH IS IN YOU.
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:29.090
  • YOU'RE WAITING FOR SOMEONE
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:30.090
  • ELSE TO DELIVER YOU.
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:31.230
  • SOMEONE TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:33.000
  • SOMEONE TO CHEER YOU UP.
  • 00:05:33.000 --> 00:05:34.150
  • YOU CAN DELIVER YOURSELF.
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:36.150
  • IF YOU'LL GET JUDAH UP AND
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:38.110
  • START THANKING GOD THAT
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:39.290
  • HE'S TURNING IT AROUND.
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:41.180
  • NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:42.280
  • MEDICAL REPORT BUT THANKING
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:44.220
  • HIM THAT HE'S RESTORING
  • 00:05:44.220 --> 00:05:46.020
  • HEALTH BACK INTO YOU.
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:47.180
  • NOT DISCOURAGED OVER
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:48.160
  • FINANCES BUT THANKING HIM
  • 00:05:48.160 --> 00:05:50.110
  • THAT YOU WILL LEND AND NOT
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:51.170
  • PRAISING HIM IN THE PIT,
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:56.050
  • PRAISING HIM IN THE LOSS,
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:57.150
  • PRAISING HIM IN THE STORM;
  • 00:05:57.150 --> 00:05:59.140
  • THAT'S WHAT HE CALLS THE
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:00.260
  • HE KNOWS IT'S NOT EASY.
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:05.010
  • HE KNOWS IT WASN'T FAIR.
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:06.280
  • HE KNOWS THEY DID YOU
  • 00:06:06.280 --> 00:06:07.240
  • WRONG. HE KNOWS YOU FELT
  • 00:06:07.240 --> 00:06:09.090
  • LIKE QUITTING BUT WHEN YOU
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:10.240
  • PRAISE HIM IN THE PIT, THAT
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:12.170
  • MOVES GOD IN A GREATER WAY.
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:14.280
  • THE SACRIFICE OF PRAISE
  • 00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:16.140
  • IT'S ONE THING TO BE
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:19.210
  • GRATEFUL WHEN THINGS ARE
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:20.250
  • GOING OUR WAY. THAT'S
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:22.070
  • IMPORTANT. WE SHOULD DO
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:23.130
  • THAT. BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:24.270
  • SONG IN YOUR HEART, WHEN
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.230
  • EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE SAYS
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:28.060
  • YOU SHOULD BE DISCOURAGED,
  • 00:06:28.060 --> 00:06:29.280
  • WHEN YOU CAN SAY, "GOD,
  • 00:06:29.280 --> 00:06:30.270
  • I BLESS YOU IN SPITE OF
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.180
  • WHAT HASN'T WORKED OUT."
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:34.020
  • SAID, "GOD LIFTED ME OUT
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:39.280
  • OF THE PIT AND SET MY FEET
  • 00:06:39.280 --> 00:06:41.220
  • UPON A ROCK."
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:42.240
  • YOU MAY BE IN THE PIT BUT
  • 00:06:42.240 --> 00:06:44.060
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO STAY
  • 00:06:44.060 --> 00:06:45.040
  • THERE. YOU'VE HEARD THAT
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:46.120
  • SAYING, "YOU CAN'T KEEP A
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:47.230
  • GOOD MAN DOWN."
  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:48.210
  • LET ME TELL YOU, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.040
  • KEEP A PRAISER DOWN.
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:52.010
  • ANYONE CAN COMPLAIN, ANYONE
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:54.090
  • GOD IS LOOKING FOR SOME
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:57.010
  • PIT PRAISERS. PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:58.280
  • WILL PRAISE HIM NO MATTER
  • 00:06:58.280 --> 00:06:59.280
  • WHAT HAPPENS. PRAISE HIM
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:01.100
  • IN THE GOOD TIMES. PRAISE
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:02.190
  • PRAISE HIM WHEN BUSINESS
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:04.270
  • IS UP. PRAISE HIM WHEN
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:05.270
  • IT'S DOWN. DAVID SAID,
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.190
  • "I'LL BLESS THE LORD AT
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:08.220
  • ALL TIMES. HIS PRAISE WILL
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.160
  • CONTINUALLY BE IN MY MOUTH."
  • 00:07:10.160 --> 00:07:12.240
  • THIS IS WHAT PAUL AND SILAS
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.090
  • DID IN THE SCRIPTURE. THEY
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:16.030
  • WERE FALSELY ACCUSED AND
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:17.220
  • PUT IN PRISON FOR SHARING
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.060
  • THE GOOD NEWS. THEY COULD
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:20.210
  • HAVE BEEN BITTER,
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:21.220
  • COMPLAINED, "GOD, WHY DID
  • 00:07:21.220 --> 00:07:22.270
  • YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?
  • 00:07:22.270 --> 00:07:23.290
  • WE WERE DOING THE RIGHT
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:24.270
  • THING."
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:25.270
  • INSTEAD, THEY WERE PIT
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.130
  • PRAISERS. AT MIDNIGHT,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:29.250
  • IN THE DUNGEON, THEY
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:31.050
  • STARTED SINGING PRAISES
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:33.010
  • AND THANKING GOD.
  • 00:07:33.010 --> 00:07:34.210
  • SUDDENLY, THERE WAS A GREAT
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:35.290
  • EARTHQUAKE. THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:37.210
  • OF THE PRISON WAS SHAKING,
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:39.020
  • THE DOORS FLUNG OPEN, THEY
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.180
  • WALKED OUT AS FREE MEN.
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.220
  • WHEN GOD HEARD THE PRAISES
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:44.200
  • COMING FROM THE JAIL, I CAN
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:46.120
  • IMAGINE HE TURNED TO
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:47.130
  • GABRIEL AND SAID, "GABRIEL,
  • 00:07:47.130 --> 00:07:49.120
  • IF THEY'RE GOING TO PRAISE
  • 00:07:49.120 --> 00:07:50.120
  • ME IN THE PIT, IF THEY'RE
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:52.070
  • GOING TO SING IN THE
  • 00:07:52.070 --> 00:07:53.050
  • MIDNIGHT HOUR, IF THEY'RE
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:54.180
  • GOING TO OFFER UP THE

  • SACRIFICE OF PRAISE,
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:07:56.240
  • I CAN'T JUST SIT BACK.
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:58.020
  • I'M GOING TO GO DOWN THERE
  • 00:07:58.020 --> 00:07:59.000
  • AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT."
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:00.140
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS IN
  • 00:08:00.140 --> 00:08:02.000
  • ZEPHANIAH, "THE LORD YOUR
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:04.010
  • MIGHTY WARRIOR IS WITH YOU.
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:06.160
  • HE WILL TAKE DELIGHT IN YOU

  • WHEN YOU GIVE GOD PRAISE IN

  • THE DIFFICULT TIMES, WHEN
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:14.250
  • YOU SING IN THE MIDNIGHT

  • HOUR, THE LORD, YOUR MIGHTY
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:18.210
  • WARRIOR, NOT A WEAK GOD,
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:21.050

  • UNIVERSE WILL NOT ONLY TAKE

  • START SINGING OVER YOU.
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:32.060
  • WHEN GOD SINGS, PRISON
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:33.240
  • DOORS OPEN, ADDICTIONS ARE
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:35.140
  • BROKEN, DEPRESSION CAN'T
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:37.010
  • STAY, POVERTY AND LACK HAVE

  • BE. BUT WHEN WE'RE IN THE

  • PITS, IT'S EASY TO HAVE A
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:45.070
  • PITY PARTY AND THINK, "WHY
  • 00:08:45.070 --> 00:08:47.030
  • DID THIS HAPPEN? I PRAYED.
  • 00:08:47.030 --> 00:08:48.280
  • MY LOVED ONE DIDN'T MAKE

  • IT. MY RELATIONSHIP DIDN'T
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:51.150
  • WORK OUT. MY HOUSE WAS
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.260
  • DAMAGED IN THE STORM."
  • 00:08:52.260 --> 00:08:54.140
  • YOU'RE RIGHT WHERE JOSEPH
  • 00:08:54.140 --> 00:08:55.120
  • WAS. DOING THE RIGHT THING
  • 00:08:55.120 --> 00:08:57.090
  • AND THE WRONG THING
  • 00:08:57.090 --> 00:08:58.070
  • HAPPENED. YOU'RE RIGHT
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:08:59.080
  • WHERE PAUL AND SILAS WERE.
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:00.190
  • YOU'RE HONORING GOD AND
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:02.020
  • YOU CAN EITHER GET NEGATIVE,
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:05.080
  • BITTER, OR YOU CAN BECOME
  • 00:09:05.080 --> 00:09:07.120
  • A PIT PRAISER. YOU CAN
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:09.030
  • THANK GOD NOT FOR THE PIT
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:11.090
  • BUT THANK HIM THAT HE'S

  • TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:19.090

  • TIMES LIKE WITH JOSEPH,
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:23.030
  • THE PIT HAS BEEN ORDAINED
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:24.280
  • BY GOD. WE DON'T LIKE IT
  • 00:09:24.280 --> 00:09:27.070
  • BUT THE PIT IS ON THE ROAD
  • 00:09:27.070 --> 00:09:29.000
  • TO OUR DESTINY.
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:30.190
  • GOD'S PLAN FOR JOSEPH'S
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:31.290
  • NOT ISRAEL. HIS BROTHERS
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:36.110
  • WERE ORDAINED TO BETRAY
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:37.210
  • HIM. HE WAS ORDAINED TO
  • 00:09:37.210 --> 00:09:39.160
  • BE SOLD AS A SLAVE.
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:41.020
  • ORDAINED TO WORK FOR
  • 00:09:41.020 --> 00:09:42.020
  • POTIPHAR, A HIGH-RANKING
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:43.170
  • ALL A PART OF THE PLAN TO
  • 00:09:45.110 --> 00:09:47.030
  • LIFE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:09:49.290 --> 00:09:51.040
  • SENSE. YOU'RE DOING THE
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:52.170
  • RIGHT THING BUT IT'S NOT
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:54.040
  • WORKING OUT. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:56.030
  • TRUST THAT GOD IS STILL
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:57.230
  • IN CONTROL, THAT HE KNOWS
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:59.200
  • WHAT HE'S DOING, THAT HE
  • 00:09:59.200 --> 00:10:01.080
  • WILL NOT MISMANAGE YOUR
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:03.000
  • LIFE. GOD HAS ALREADY
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:05.020
  • PLANNED THE END FROM THE
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:06.280
  • BEGINNING. HE NEVER PROMISED
  • 00:10:06.280 --> 00:10:09.080
  • THAT WE WOULD UNDERSTAND
  • 00:10:09.080 --> 00:10:10.250
  • EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:11.250
  • HE SAID, "MY WAYS ARE NOT
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:15.200
  • YOUR WAYS." HE LET US KNOW
  • 00:10:15.200 --> 00:10:17.130
  • RIGHT UP FRONT IT'S NOT
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:18.270
  • ALWAYS GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.010
  • SENSE. THIS IS WHAT FAITH
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.280
  • IS ALL ABOUT. WHEN GOD
  • 00:10:21.280 --> 00:10:23.250
  • GAVE JOSEPH THAT DREAM,
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:25.160
  • IT SHOWED HIM UP AND HIS
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:27.150
  • BROTHERS DOWN. BUT WHEN
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:29.060
  • THE BROTHERS THREW HIM
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:30.040
  • INTO THE PIT, HE WAS DOWN
  • 00:10:30.040 --> 00:10:32.100
  • AND HIS BROTHERS WERE UP.
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:33.180
  • JUST THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.030
  • HE COULD HAVE THOUGHT,
  • 00:10:35.030 --> 00:10:36.020
  • "GOD, I MUST HAVE HEARD
  • 00:10:36.020 --> 00:10:37.000
  • YOU WRONG. THIS IS
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:37.280
  • BACKWARDS. HE COULD HAVE
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:39.130
  • COMPLAINED, BEEN BITTER.
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:41.050
  • INSTEAD, HIS ATTITUDE WAS,
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:43.120
  • "GOD, I TRUST YOU. YOU SAID
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:45.210
  • MY STEPS ARE ORDERED BY
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:47.030
  • YOU, SO WHEREVER YOU HAVE
  • 00:10:47.030 --> 00:10:48.270
  • ME, I'M GOING TO BE THE
  • 00:10:48.270 --> 00:10:49.260
  • BEST THAT I CAN BE." YOU
  • 00:10:49.260 --> 00:10:51.260
  • NEVER READ WHERE JOSEPH
  • 00:10:51.260 --> 00:10:53.030
  • COMPLAINED, WHERE HE WAS
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:54.210
  • BITTER, WHERE HE SLACKED
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:56.080
  • OFF. I CAN IMAGINE IN
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:58.060
  • THE PIT, THOUGHTS SAID TO
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:10:59.210
  • HIM, "WHERE IS YOUR GOD
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:01.140
  • NOW? THIS DREAM IS NEVER
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:03.090
  • GOING TO COME TO PASS."
  • 00:11:03.090 --> 00:11:04.270
  • THE PIT WAS SIMPLY A TEST.
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:07.170
  • GOD WAS SEEING, "WILL YOU
  • 00:11:07.170 --> 00:11:09.090
  • TRUST ME WHEN YOU DON'T
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:11.000
  • UNDERSTAND? WILL YOU PRAISE
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:13.040
  • ME IN THE PIT WHEN IT
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:14.240
  • PRAISE IS NOT JUST WORDS,
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.140
  • IT'S OUR ATTITUDE. WE'RE
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:20.160
  • GRATEFUL. WE HAVE A SMILE.
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:23.140
  • WE'RE BEING GOOD TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:25.020
  • WE'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR
  • 00:11:25.020 --> 00:11:26.030
  • DREAMS.
  • 00:11:26.030 --> 00:11:27.010
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS OUR LIFE
  • 00:11:27.010 --> 00:11:28.280
  • IS A PRAISE TO GOD.
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:31.000
  • WHEN YOU'RE A PIT PRAISER,
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:32.180
  • YOU CAN BE IN THE PIT AND
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:33.270
  • NOBODY AROUND YOU KNOWS IT.
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:36.040
  • YOU'RE NOT SOUR.
  • 00:11:36.040 --> 00:11:37.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A CHIP ON
  • 00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:38.130
  • YOUR SHOULDER.
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:39.140
  • YOU'VE LEARNED THIS SECRET
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:40.250
  • TO BLESS THE LORD AT ALL
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:42.120
  • JOSEPH SAID IN EFFECT,
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.110
  • "THIS PIT IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:11:45.110 --> 00:11:47.040
  • STOP MY PRAISE. I KNOW IT'S
  • 00:11:47.040 --> 00:11:49.160
  • A PART OF THE PROCESS. GOD
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:51.220
  • WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED IT IF
  • 00:11:51.220 --> 00:11:52.290
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE A PURPOSE.
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:54.120
  • SO IT'S NOT GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.130
  • MY JOY. I'M GOING TO BE A
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:57.080
  • PIT PRAISER."
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:11:58.280
  • I CAN HEAR HIM WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:11:58.280 --> 00:12:00.050
  • IN THE PIT. HIS BROTHERS
  • 00:12:00.050 --> 00:12:01.140
  • UP HAVING LUNCH.
  • 00:12:01.140 --> 00:12:02.140
  • "FATHER, THANK YOU THAT
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:03.270
  • NOTHING CAN SNATCH ME OUT
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:05.100
  • OF YOUR HANDS. YOU BEING
  • 00:12:05.100 --> 00:12:07.020
  • FOR ME I KNOW IS GREATER
  • 00:12:07.020 --> 00:12:08.180
  • THAN THE WHOLE WORLD BEING
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:09.160
  • AGAINST ME."
  • 00:12:09.160 --> 00:12:10.220
  • AS HE KEPT THANKING GOD,
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:13.090
  • HIS BROTHER NAMED JUDAH,
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:15.030
  • THE ONE THAT MEANS PRAISE
  • 00:12:15.030 --> 00:12:16.140
  • SUDDENLY HAD AN IDEA.
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:18.100
  • "LET'S NOT HARM JOSEPH.
  • 00:12:18.100 --> 00:12:19.250
  • LET'S SELL HIM TO THESE
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:20.230
  • PEOPLE." THAT WASN'T HIS
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:22.030
  • IDEA, GOD GAVE HIM THAT
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:23.260
  • IDEA. WHEN YOU'RE GIVING
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:25.280
  • GOD PRAISE, HE'S FIGHTING
  • 00:12:25.280 --> 00:12:27.220
  • IDEAS, PUTTING THOUGHTS IN
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:31.090
  • THEIR MIND, CAUSING THEM
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:32.200
  • TO WANT TO BE GOOD TO YOU.
  • 00:12:32.200 --> 00:12:33.220
  • A PIT PRAISER? WHAT IF
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:38.060
  • HE'D BEEN NEGATIVE, BITTER?
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:39.240
  • MAYBE HE'D STAY IN THE PIT.
  • 00:12:39.240 --> 00:12:41.200
  • MAYBE HE WOULD HAVE MISSED
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:42.180
  • IN THE PIT, IT'S A TEST.
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.230
  • ARE YOU GOING TO GET
  • 00:12:46.230 --> 00:12:47.210
  • DISCOURAGED? BITTER? OR ARE
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:50.030

  • WHAT GOD PROMISED US LOOKS
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:59.090
  • JUST THE OPPOSITE. GOD SAID
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:01.150
  • HE'S RESTORING HEALTH BACK
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:02.260
  • TO YOU. THE MEDICAL REPORT

  • DON'T GET DISCOURAGED BY

  • 00:17:09.290 --> 00:17:11.250
  • THAT'S WHAT ALLOWS HIM TO
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.040
  • TAKE YOU INTO THE PALACE,
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:14.140
  • INTO A NEW LEVEL OF YOUR
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:15.150
  • IN MATTHEW 15, JESUS HAD
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:19.050
  • JUST LEFT GALILEE WHEN A
  • 00:17:19.050 --> 00:17:21.070
  • CANAANITE WOMAN CAME UP
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:22.180
  • TO HIM. THE CANAANITES
  • 00:17:22.180 --> 00:17:24.130
  • WERE IDOL WORSHIPPERS.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.000
  • THEY WERE GENTILES. THEY
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:27.170
  • DIDN'T BELIEVE IN JEHOVAH.
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:29.230
  • FOR A LADY TO APPROACH HIM
  • 00:17:29.230 --> 00:17:31.140
  • LIKE THAT IN THAT DAY WAS
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:33.000
  • UNUSUAL BECAUSE THE WOMEN
  • 00:17:33.000 --> 00:17:34.260
  • WERE TAUGHT TO STAY IN THE
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:35.240
  • BACKGROUND. THIS LADY
  • 00:17:35.240 --> 00:17:37.170
  • TRAVELED A GREAT DISTANCE,
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.030
  • SAID TO JESUS, "SON OF
  • 00:17:39.030 --> 00:17:40.200
  • DAVID, HAVE MERCY ON ME.
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:43.010
  • MY LITTLE GIRL IS SO SICK."
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:45.110
  • JESUS IGNORED HER. HE
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.050
  • DIDN'T SAY A WORD. HE ACTED
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.170
  • LIKE SHE WASN'T THERE.
  • 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:50.050
  • JESUS WAS NORMALLY SO
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:53.050
  • COMPASSIONATE.
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:54.120
  • THE LADY KEPT BEGGING AND
  • 00:17:54.120 --> 00:17:55.230
  • BEGGING, "PLEASE COME HEAL
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:56.290
  • MY DAUGHTER," SO MUCH SO
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:17:59.070
  • THAT THE DISCIPLES ASKED
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:00.150
  • AWAY? CAN WE TELL HER TO
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:03.180
  • LEAVE? SHE'S BOTHERING US
  • 00:18:03.180 --> 00:18:05.100
  • WITH ALL OF HER BEGGING."
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:07.110
  • JESUS FINALLY TOLD HER WHY
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:09.150
  • HE WAS IGNORING HER.
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:11.090
  • HE SAID, "MA'AM, I WAS SENT
  • 00:18:11.090 --> 00:18:13.070
  • TO HELP THE HOUSE OF
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:14.050
  • ISRAEL, NOT THE GENTILES."
  • 00:18:14.050 --> 00:18:16.280
  • HE WAS SAYING, "I'M SORRY
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.150
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT A PART OF
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:19.150
  • OUR FAMILY. I FEEL BADLY
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:21.210
  • BUT I CAN'T TAKE WHAT
  • 00:18:21.210 --> 00:18:22.260
  • BELONGS TO THE ISRAELITES
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:24.120
  • AND GIVE IT TO YOU."
  • 00:18:24.120 --> 00:18:26.020
  • THIS LADY HAD EVERYTHING
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.200
  • GOING AGAINST HER. SHE WAS
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:29.110
  • A GENTILE. SHE WAS AN IDOL
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:31.100
  • WORSHIPPER. SHE WAS A
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:32.140
  • WOMAN. BUT WHEN SHE SAID,
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:35.050
  • "SON OF DAVID, HAVE MERCY
  • 00:18:35.050 --> 00:18:37.030
  • ON ME," SHE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:39.170
  • "I KNOW YOU'RE THE MESSIAH
  • 00:18:39.170 --> 00:18:41.080
  • FOR THE ISRAELITES.
  • 00:18:41.080 --> 00:18:42.260
  • I REALIZE I'M OUTSIDE THE
  • 00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:44.170
  • FAMILY. I DON'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:46.050
  • RIGHT TO THIS. BUT I'M
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.200
  • ASKING YOU TO MAKE AN
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:49.010
  • EXCEPTION."
  • 00:18:49.010 --> 00:18:50.160
  • WHEN JESUS TOLD HER NO,
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:52.140
  • THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THE
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:53.130
  • END OF THE STORY.
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:54.220
  • BUT THIS LADY DID SOMETHING
  • 00:18:54.220 --> 00:18:56.130
  • INTERESTING. INSTEAD OF
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.040
  • CONTINUING TO BEG, SHE
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:19:00.030
  • FELL DOWN AT HIS FEET AND
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.280
  • STARTED WORSHIPPING. SHE
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.190
  • STARTED PRAISING HIM,
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:05.050
  • THANKING HIM. I CAN
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:06.250
  • IMAGINE JESUS TRIED TO
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:08.170
  • WALK AWAY. HE TRIED TO
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:10.090
  • MOVE ON. BUT WHEN HE HEARD
  • 00:19:10.090 --> 00:19:12.080
  • THE PRAISE, HE COULDN'T
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:13.200
  • LEAVE. PRAISE KEPT PULLING
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:15.200
  • HIM BACK. PRAISE KEPT
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:17.100
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "GOD
  • 00:19:19.070 --> 00:19:20.220
  • INHABITS OUR PRAISES."
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:22.220
  • THAT MEANS PRAISE BRINGS
  • 00:19:22.220 --> 00:19:24.200
  • GOD ON THE SCENE. BEGGING
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:27.000
  • DOESN'T MOVE GOD.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.160
  • COMPLAINING DOESN'T SWAY
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:29.250
  • HIM. BUT PRAISE CAUSES THE
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:31.280
  • CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE TO
  • 00:19:31.280 --> 00:19:33.140
  • JESUS THOUGHT, "I KNOW
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:36.250
  • SHE'S OUTSIDE THE FAMILY.
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:38.150
  • I KNOW SHE COMES FROM IDOL
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:39.270
  • WORSHIPPERS. I KNOW THIS
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:41.120
  • GOES AGAINST "PROTOCOL"
  • 00:19:41.120 --> 00:19:43.260
  • BUT I CAN'T TURN A PRAISER
  • 00:19:43.260 --> 00:19:45.030
  • DOWN." HE SAID TO THE
  • 00:19:45.030 --> 00:19:46.230
  • WOMAN, "YOU HAVE GREAT
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:48.100
  • FAITH. YOU CAN GO BACK
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:49.250
  • HOME. YOUR DAUGHTER HAS
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:51.100
  • BEEN HEALED."
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:52.150
  • A FEW MINUTES EARLIER, HE
  • 00:19:52.150 --> 00:19:53.230
  • WAS IGNORING HER. WHAT
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.120
  • FROM BEGGING TO
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:19:58.130
  • WORSHIPPING. THAT'S HOW
  • 00:19:58.130 --> 00:20:00.090
  • POWERFUL PRAISE IS.
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:02.220
  • YOU MAY THINK YOU'RE KIND
  • 00:20:02.220 --> 00:20:03.290
  • OF OUTSIDE THE FAMILY,
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:05.190
  • YOU DON'T DESERVE GOD'S
  • 00:20:05.190 --> 00:20:06.210
  • GOODNESS. YOU'VE MADE
  • 00:20:06.210 --> 00:20:07.290
  • MISTAKES, BROUGHT TROUBLE
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:09.120
  • REASONS WHY GOD SHOULDN'T
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:13.150
  • DO IT. BUT IF YOU'LL DO
  • 00:20:13.150 --> 00:20:15.110
  • LIKE THIS LADY AND GO TO
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:17.050
  • GOD NOT BEGGING HIM BUT
  • 00:20:17.050 --> 00:20:19.160
  • GIVING HIM PRAISE, THANKING
  • 00:20:19.160 --> 00:20:21.170
  • HIM, BRAGGING ON HIS
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:23.000
  • GOODNESS, GOD WILL BREAK
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:25.040
  • PROTOCOL SO TO SPEAK AND
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.000
  • DO THINGS THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:20:27.000 --> 00:20:27.290
  • DESERVE.
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:28.280
  • WHAT BEGGING WON'T DO,
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:30.230
  • NO MORE: GOD I'M BEGGING
  • 00:20:32.140 --> 00:20:34.070
  • YOU TO HEAL ME.
  • 00:20:34.070 --> 00:20:35.140
  • I'M BEGGING YOU TO TURN MY
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:36.150
  • CHILD AROUND.
  • 00:20:36.150 --> 00:20:37.140
  • FATHER, THANK YOU THAT
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:40.130
  • YOU'RE RESTORING HEALTH
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:41.130
  • BACK TO ME. THANK YOU
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:42.270
  • THAT AS FOR ME AND MY
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:43.250
  • HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE
  • 00:20:43.250 --> 00:20:45.020
  • LORD. GOD WON'T DISAPPOINT
  • 00:20:45.020 --> 00:20:47.200
  • JEREMIAH SAID WHEN YOU
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:51.030
  • OFFER UP THE SACRIFICE OF
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:52.240
  • PRAISE, GOD WILL CAUSE THE
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:54.230
  • CAPTIVITY OF THE LAND TO BE
  • 00:20:54.230 --> 00:20:56.190
  • REVERSED AND THE FORTUNES
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:58.170
  • BE SOME THINGS YOU NEED
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:01.290
  • REVERSED AND RESTORED.
  • 00:21:01.290 --> 00:21:04.090
  • YOU DON'T SEE HOW IT COULD
  • 00:21:04.090 --> 00:21:05.090
  • THE DAY SAYING, "FATHER,
  • 00:21:06.280 --> 00:21:08.060
  • THANK YOU THAT THE ANSWER'S
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:09.120
  • ON THE WAY. THANK YOU THAT
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:10.260
  • YOU'RE WORKING BEHIND THE
  • 00:21:10.260 --> 00:21:11.260
  • SCENES." BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:13.210
  • OFFERING UP THAT SACRIFICE
  • 00:21:13.210 --> 00:21:14.260
  • REVERSE FINANCES THAT ARE
  • 00:21:17.170 --> 00:21:19.090
  • DOWN, REVERSE A NEGATIVE
  • 00:21:19.090 --> 00:21:21.120
  • MEDICAL REPORT, REVERSE A
  • 00:21:21.120 --> 00:21:23.150
  • LEGAL SITUATION.
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:25.050
  • NOT ONLY THAT, HE'S GOING
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:26.170
  • TO RESTORE WHAT SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:21:26.170 --> 00:21:28.050
  • BEEN YOURS, RESTORE YEARS
  • 00:21:28.050 --> 00:21:30.110
  • YOU LOST BECAUSE SOMEBODY
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:31.220
  • DID YOU WRONG, RESTORE A
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:33.180
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT'S GOING
  • 00:21:33.180 --> 00:21:34.240
  • DOWN. RESTORE HEALTH BACK
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:37.040
  • TO YOUR BODY. IT'S GOING
  • 00:21:37.040 --> 00:21:38.150
  • TO HAPPEN BECAUSE OF YOUR
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:39.240
  • THE ISRAELITES HAD TRAVELED
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:43.100
  • THROUGH THE DESERT 40 YEARS
  • 00:21:43.100 --> 00:21:45.120
  • TRYING TO MAKE IT TO THE
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:46.100
  • PROMISED LAND. THE PARENTS
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:48.110
  • NEVER DID MAKE IT IN
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:50.000
  • BECAUSE THEY COMPLAINED
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.070
  • AND WERE NEGATIVE.
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:52.060
  • THEY EVENTUALLY DIED.
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:53.270
  • NOW THEIR CHILDREN WERE AT
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:55.160
  • JERICHO. THIS WAS THE LAST
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:57.240
  • CITY THAT STOOD BETWEEN
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:59.140
  • THEM AND THEIR PROMISED
  • 00:21:59.140 --> 00:22:01.100
  • LAND. YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.220
  • EXCITED THEY WERE IF THEY
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:04.140
  • COULD JUST GET THROUGH
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.130
  • JERICHO THAT THEY COULD
  • 00:22:05.130 --> 00:22:07.040
  • THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:10.210
  • JERICHO THAT STANDS BETWEEN
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:12.240
  • YOU AND YOUR PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:15.050
  • ONE LAST OBSTACLE THAT
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:17.050
  • LOOKED INSURMOUNTABLE.
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:18.240
  • YOU'VE COME THIS FAR,
  • 00:22:18.240 --> 00:22:19.240
  • YOU'VE DONE SO WELL, BUT
  • 00:22:19.240 --> 00:22:21.200
  • YOU DON'T SEE HOW TO GET
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:23.070
  • PAST IT. THIS IS HOW THE
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:25.080
  • ISRAELITES FELT. THEY
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:26.190
  • COULD TASTE THE VICTORY.
  • 00:22:26.190 --> 00:22:28.150
  • AFTER YEARS, THEY WERE
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:29.180
  • FINALLY WITHIN REACH BUT
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:31.220
  • JERICHO HAD A HUGE WALL
  • 00:22:31.220 --> 00:22:34.040
  • AROUND THE CITY, SO THICK
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.230
  • THAT THE CHARIOTS COULD
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.080
  • RIDE ON TOP OF THE WALL.
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:39.060
  • IT LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE TO
  • 00:22:39.060 --> 00:22:40.130
  • HAVE THE PEOPLE MARCH
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:44.040
  • AROUND THE WALL SIX DAYS
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:45.090
  • AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY, ON
  • 00:22:45.090 --> 00:22:47.140
  • THE SEVENTH TIME AROUND,
  • 00:22:47.140 --> 00:22:49.000
  • GREAT SHOUT. I CAN IMAGINE
  • 00:22:50.060 --> 00:22:52.270
  • THE PEOPLE TOLD JOSHUA,
  • 00:22:52.270 --> 00:22:54.070
  • "WE'LL SHOUT AFTER THE
  • 00:22:54.070 --> 00:22:56.100
  • WALL FALLS, AFTER WE TAKE
  • 00:22:56.100 --> 00:22:58.190
  • THE CITY, THEN WE'LL GIVE
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:23:00.030
  • GOD PRAISE. THERE'S NO
  • 00:23:00.030 --> 00:23:01.210
  • REASON TO DO IT BEFORE.
