  • - ANNOUNCER: THIS PROGRAM
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.100
  • HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE
  • 00:00:01.100 --> 00:00:02.000
  • BY THE FRIENDS AND PARTNERS
  • 00:00:02.000 --> 00:00:03.010
  • - JOYCE: FAITH MUST BE RELEASED
  • 00:00:04.240 --> 00:00:06.080
  • FOR IT TO DO YOU ANY GOOD.
  • 00:00:06.080 --> 00:00:08.220
  • SO, FROM A PRACTICAL STANDPOINT,
  • 00:00:08.220 --> 00:00:11.020
  • HOW DO WE RELEASE OUR FAITH?
  • 00:00:12.200 --> 00:00:15.200
  • I'LL JUST GIVE YOU THREE SIMPLE
  • 00:00:15.200 --> 00:00:16.220
  • WAYS: BY PRAYING, BY SAYING--
  • 00:00:21.170 --> 00:00:24.170
  • FAITH-FILLED WORDS ARE VERY
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:25.280
  • - JOYCE: OKAY, I'VE BEEN
  • 00:00:38.150 --> 00:00:39.140
  • TALKING ABOUT THE KINGDOM
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:41.240
  • OF GOD, WHICH IS AN INVISIBLE
  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:44.060
  • KINGDOM.
  • 00:00:44.060 --> 00:00:46.000
  • THERE'S A--THE BIBLE TALKS
  • 00:00:46.000 --> 00:00:47.110
  • A LOT, IN THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:00:47.110 --> 00:00:48.220
  • ABOUT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:00:48.220 --> 00:00:50.020
  • JESUS' FIRST MESSAGE WAS,
  • 00:00:50.020 --> 00:00:51.210
  • "REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:52.290
  • OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND."
  • 00:00:52.290 --> 00:00:55.180
  • AND HIS DISCIPLES THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:00:56.160 --> 00:00:59.160
  • KINGDOM WAS GONNA BE AN
  • 00:00:59.160 --> 00:01:00.170
  • EARTHLY KINGDOM WHERE HE WOULD
  • 00:01:00.170 --> 00:01:02.090
  • SET UP A PALACE SOMEWHERE WITH
  • 00:01:02.090 --> 00:01:03.180
  • A THRONE AND BE THE KING.
  • 00:01:03.180 --> 00:01:05.210
  • WELL, HE IS KING JESUS, BUT IT'S
  • 00:01:05.210 --> 00:01:07.180
  • OVER AN INVISIBLE KINGDOM.
  • 00:01:09.050 --> 00:01:12.050
  • AND WE READ THIS MORNING HOW
  • 00:01:13.090 --> 00:01:16.090
  • JESUS SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:18.260
  • "WHO DO PEOPLE SAY THAT I AM?"
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:20.100
  • AND THEY SAID, "WELL, JOHN,
  • 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:21.090
  • THE BAPTIST, ELIJAH,
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:23.000
  • DIFFERENT PROPHETS."
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:23.270
  • HE SAID, "WELL, WHO DO YOU SAY
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:24.280
  • THAT I AM?"
  • 00:01:24.280 --> 00:01:25.270
  • AND PETER SAID, "THOU ART
  • 00:01:25.270 --> 00:01:26.270
  • THE CHRIST THE SON
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:28.290
  • OF THE LIVING GOD."
  • 00:01:28.290 --> 00:01:30.090
  • AND HE SAID, "ON THIS ROCK
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.270
  • I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH AND
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:34.150
  • THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:35.170
  • PREVAIL AGAINST IT."
  • 00:01:35.170 --> 00:01:36.220
  • THE ROCK HE WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.020
  • WAS THE ROCK OF FAITH.
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:39.170
  • "UNTO EVERY MAN IS GIVEN
  • 00:01:39.170 --> 00:01:41.100
  • THE MEASURE OF FAITH."
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:42.260
  • YOU HAVE FAITH.
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:47.150
  • EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A BELIEVER,
  • 00:01:47.150 --> 00:01:48.190
  • YOU'VE GOT FAITH.
  • 00:01:48.190 --> 00:01:49.180
  • YOU MAY BE USING IT FOR
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:50.170
  • THE WRONG THING BUT YOU HAVE
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:53.160
  • TO HAVE FAITH TO EVEN SIT
  • 00:01:53.160 --> 00:01:54.220
  • IN A CHAIR OTHERWISE,
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:55.250
  • YOU'D BE AFRAID THAT IT WOULD
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:57.180
  • CAVE-IN UNDER YOU.
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:01:58.170
  • AND, BUT FAITH IS A FORCE THAT
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:03.020
  • DWELLS ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:06.010
  • AND GOD GIVES EVERY PERSON,
  • 00:02:06.010 --> 00:02:08.130
  • HOWEVER MUCH THEY NEED TO DO
  • 00:02:08.130 --> 00:02:10.040
  • WHATEVER IT IS HE'S CALLED
  • 00:02:10.040 --> 00:02:11.140
  • THEM TO DO OR TO BE IN
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:12.290
  • WHATEVER SITUATION YOU'RE IN.
  • 00:02:12.290 --> 00:02:14.210
  • YOU MAYBE IN A REALLY TOUGH
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:16.000
  • SITUATION, BUT I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:18.150
  • GOD WILL GIVE YOU GRACE FOR
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:20.020
  • YOUR PLACE.
  • 00:02:20.290 --> 00:02:23.290
  • AMEN?
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:24.190

  • - JOYCE: AND YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:02:25.240 --> 00:02:26.230
  • HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE GRACE
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:27.220
  • FOR YOUR PLACE?
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:29.030
  • YOU CAN DO THINGS THAT TO
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:30.200
  • OTHER PEOPLE, THEY'LL LOOK AT
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:32.080
  • YOU AND THINK, "I HAVE NO IDEA
  • 00:02:32.080 --> 00:02:33.200
  • HOW YOU DO THAT."
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:35.270
  • BUT YET, YOU HAVE GRACE FOR
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:37.240
  • THE PLACE THAT YOU'RE IN.
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:40.050
  • GOD NEVER ALLOWS MORE TO COME
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:41.220
  • ON US THAN WHAT WE CAN BEAR.
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:42.270
  • BUT WITH EVERY TEMPTATION HE
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:44.220
  • ALSO PROVIDES THE WAY OUT.
  • 00:02:44.220 --> 00:02:46.100
  • SO, I REALLY WANT TO ENCOURAGE
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:47.210
  • YOU, IF YOU'RE IN A DIFFICULT

  • "I CAN'T DO THIS," YOU EVER HEAR
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:55.150
  • OF THAT?
  • 00:02:55.150 --> 00:02:57.160
  • "I CAN'T PUT UP WITH THIS ONE
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:02:58.210
  • MORE DAY."
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.240
  • AND TOMORROW, IT'S LIKE,

  • MORE DAY."
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:05.010
  • AND TOMORROW, YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:06.000
  • "REALLY GOD, I CAN'T PUT UP

  • SOMETIMES DEPICTED AS OIL.
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:30.110

  • SOMEBODY'S STILL--I'M TRYING
  • 00:04:42.080 --> 00:04:44.150
  • TO PUSH YOU OVER THE EDGE
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:45.110
  • TO BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:04:45.110 --> 00:04:46.080
  • 'CAUSE SEE, HERE'S THE THING.
  • 00:04:46.080 --> 00:04:48.140
  • NO MATTER WHAT GOD'S GIVEN US,
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:50.100
  • IF WE DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE IT
  • 00:04:50.100 --> 00:04:53.010
  • THEN TO US IT'S GONNA BE AS
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:54.170
  • IF WE DIDN'T HAVE IT.
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:58.190
  • THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:04:58.190 --> 00:04:59.180
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:00.190
  • NO MATTER WHAT GOD'S GIVEN US,
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:03.070
  • IF WE DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE IT,
  • 00:05:03.070 --> 00:05:04.230

  • AMEN?
  • 00:05:08.050 --> 00:05:09.120
  • SO, EVEN LIKE, I'VE BEEN TALKING
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:10.110
  • ABOUT BEING MORE CONSCIOUS
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:12.020
  • OF THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE ANGELS
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:13.110
  • WITH YOU ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:16.250
  • I THINK JUST THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:05:16.250 --> 00:05:18.010
  • THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL MORE
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:21.160
  • SAFE, AND MORE POWERFUL,
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:25.140
  • AND LESS LIKELY TO FEEL LIKE
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:28.090
  • YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:30.110
  • IN PSALM 91, IT SAYS, "HE WILL
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:31.240
  • GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER
  • 00:05:31.240 --> 00:05:33.060
  • YOU TO DEFEND AND PROTECT YOU
  • 00:05:33.060 --> 00:05:35.040
  • IN ALL YOUR WAYS OF OBEDIENCE
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:36.260
  • AND SERVICE."
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:37.240
  • ANGELS AREN'T GONNA HELP
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:38.230
  • YOU DISOBEY GOD.
  • 00:05:38.230 --> 00:05:41.160
  • BUT IF YOU'RE A PERSON WHO'S
  • 00:05:41.160 --> 00:05:42.170
  • DETERMINED TO OBEY GOD,
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:45.110
  • THEN HE WILL GIVE YOU ANGELS
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:48.200
  • TO HELP YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:05:48.200 --> 00:05:50.200
  • SO, YOU HAVE ALL THE GRACE
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:54.000
  • AND ALL THE FAITH THAT YOU NEED
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:56.060
  • TO DO WHATEVER IT IS THAT
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:58.050
  • YOU NEED TO DO.
  • 00:05:58.050 --> 00:05:59.040
  • IF YOU'RE IN A TOUGH MARRIAGE,
  • 00:05:59.040 --> 00:06:00.060
  • BUT YOU FEEL LIKE GOD'S TOLD
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:01.130
  • YOU TO STICK IT OUT.
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:04.010
  • IF YOU HAVE A SPECIAL NEEDS
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:05.160
  • CHILD AND YOU REALLY WANNA
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:11.100
  • TAKE CARE OF 'EM AND DO WHATEVER
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:13.230
  • IT IS YOU NEED TO DO RIGHT,
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:14.240
  • GOD'S NOT GONNA GIVE YOU THAT
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:16.070
  • CHILD WITHOUT GIVING YOU
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.270
  • THE GRACE TO BE ABLE TO DO IT.
  • 00:06:18.210 --> 00:06:21.210
  • AND I'M NOT GONNA SAY THAT
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:22.200
  • YOU'RE NOT GONNA HAVE HARD
