  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.140 --> 00:00:11.070
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: Wonder
  • 00:00:11.070 --> 00:00:12.070
  • what God is doing that
  • 00:00:12.070 --> 00:00:14.110
  • you don't even know.
  • 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:18.290
  • Wonder what God is moving that
  • 00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:23.050
  • you don't even know.
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:26.010
  • Wonder what God is fixing that
  • 00:00:26.220 --> 00:00:29.220
  • The Potter's Touch.
  • 00:00:45.240 --> 00:00:47.200
  • - Bishop Jakes: Separation
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:52.080
  • anxiety disorder is a
  • 00:00:52.080 --> 00:00:53.060
  • psychological disorder that
  • 00:00:53.060 --> 00:00:55.010
  • happens mostly amongst children,
  • 00:00:55.010 --> 00:00:57.000
  • but can affect adults, as well,
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:00:59.060
  • where a child feels vulnerable
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:02.160
  • because its parent or loved one
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:06.080
  • leaves, and it develops
  • 00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:10.240
  • separation anxiety disorder.
  • 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:13.240
  • And you give 'em a bottle, and
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.100
  • they keep crying.
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:16.120
  • And you try to walk the floor
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:18.040
  • with them, and they keep crying,
  • 00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:20.000
  • and you don't understand the
  • 00:01:20.000 --> 00:01:21.240
  • anxiety is coming from
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:23.070
  • separation.
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:24.270
  • It is dominantly, predominantly,
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:26.270
  • amongst children, but it can
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:28.190
  • affect adults, too, where you're
  • 00:01:28.190 --> 00:01:31.090
  • only happy if I'm there.
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:33.210
  • Separation anxiety disorder.
  • 00:01:36.070 --> 00:01:39.070
  • This kind of prayer reminded me
  • 00:01:40.210 --> 00:01:43.210
  • of separation anxiety disorder.
  • 00:01:46.130 --> 00:01:49.130
  • It didn't seem like it had
  • 00:01:49.130 --> 00:01:51.020
  • anything to do with the text,
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:52.280
  • until I realized I'm dealing
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:54.200
  • with a baby church.
  • 00:01:59.010 --> 00:02:02.030
  • I'm dealing with a baby church,
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:04.020
  • a church that has come out of
  • 00:02:04.020 --> 00:02:06.280
  • the bleeding side of Jesus
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:09.020
  • Christ, only to have him say,
  • 00:02:09.220 --> 00:02:12.220
  • "I'm leaving you.
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:19.030
  • I'm leaving you."
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.280
  • Imagine your mama birthing you
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:22.120
  • and saying, "I'm leaving you.
  • 00:02:22.120 --> 00:02:25.040
  • I'm leaving you.
  • 00:02:25.040 --> 00:02:26.210
  • I'm going away on a cloud.
  • 00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:28.100
  • I don't know when I'm coming
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:29.060
  • back.
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:30.030
  • I'm outta here.
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:31.060
  • Do the best you can."
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:34.090
  • And they survived that in part
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:36.070
  • because he had left on the day
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:39.150
  • of Pentecost, which was the
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:41.150
  • birth of the church.
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:42.260
  • He had left Peter, who he said
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.290
  • was the rock, in charge, who
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:47.030
  • delivered the inaugural address
  • 00:02:47.070 --> 00:02:50.070
  • on the day of Pentecost, and
  • 00:02:50.070 --> 00:02:52.230
  • Peter became a fill-in for where
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:55.210
  • Jesus left off because he was
  • 00:02:55.210 --> 00:02:58.110
  • covering them.
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:03:00.070
  • But now, Peter--oh, you didn't
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:06.180
  • get it.
  • 00:03:06.180 --> 00:03:09.140
  • I'm trying to tell you it's
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.060
  • happening again every time I get
  • 00:03:12.030 --> 00:03:15.030
  • somebody that leave me.
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:18.090
  • Every time I take two steps
  • 00:03:18.090 --> 00:03:20.100
  • forward, I get knocked three
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:22.220
  • steps back.
  • 00:03:22.220 --> 00:03:24.000
  • Every time it looks like I got
  • 00:03:24.000 --> 00:03:25.170
  • love in my life, it falls apart.
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:27.090
  • Every time I'm about to get
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.080
  • things under control with my
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:30.250
  • finances, something breaks down,
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:33.100
  • and I'm by--I wanna talk to some
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:35.050
  • people who have anxiety because
  • 00:03:35.050 --> 00:03:37.080
  • it's happening again.
  • 00:03:39.220 --> 00:03:42.220
  • Touch your neighbor and say,
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:43.140
  • "It's happening again."
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:49.000
  • This kind of prayer doesn't come
  • 00:03:49.000 --> 00:03:51.180
  • because you have a prayer
  • 00:03:51.180 --> 00:03:53.090
  • journal.
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:55.040
  • This kind of prayer comes
  • 00:03:55.040 --> 00:03:56.260
  • because you have anxiety and
  • 00:03:56.260 --> 00:03:59.040
  • because you're afraid and
  • 00:03:59.040 --> 00:04:01.040
  • because the enemy has brought
  • 00:04:01.040 --> 00:04:03.020
  • your greatest fear down on your
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:05.240
  • head, and you're saying, "God,
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:08.050
  • if you don't get me out of this,
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:10.110
  • I'm gonna lose my mind, 'cause
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:12.230
  • here it is happening again."
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:16.130
  • I need a hundred people who know
  • 00:04:16.130 --> 00:04:17.270
  • what it's like to see
  • 00:04:17.270 --> 00:04:19.280
  • themselves--to lose Peter,
  • 00:04:26.200 --> 00:04:29.200
  • Peter, the one who Jesus said is
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:32.290
  • the rock.
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:34.230
  • "And upon this rock I will build
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:36.040
  • my church."
  • 00:04:36.140 --> 00:04:39.140
  • And Peter is in jail, and don't
  • 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:41.080
  • tell me that he's gonna get out
  • 00:04:41.080 --> 00:04:43.260
  • and everything is gonna go well,
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:45.260
  • 'cause you remember what
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.060
  • happened to Jesus.
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:51.150
  • Suppose they kill him?
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:56.220
  • If he's the rock, suppose they
  • 00:05:00.100 --> 00:05:03.100
  • kill the rock?
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:07.080
  • If he was the first voice
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:08.250
  • I heard when I got saved--and
  • 00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:11.210
  • 3.000 people were added to the
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:14.030
  • church that day, and he is my
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:16.000
  • mentor, and he is my teacher.
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:19.020
  • I have nursed at the breast of
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:21.190
  • the milk of his word and if they
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:26.030
  • kill him where will I get
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.060
  • the milk?
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:31.050
  • Separation anxiety disorder has
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:34.160
  • set in, and the church has gone
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:37.140
  • into fervent prayer.
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:41.200
  • Sometimes God will allow things
  • 00:05:42.180 --> 00:05:45.180
  • to happen in your life to wake
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:50.100
  • you up from being a spoiled brat
  • 00:05:51.250 --> 00:05:54.250
  • and remind you that you got a
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:57.150
  • devil to fight and put you on
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:06:00.190
  • your knees so you can call on
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:03.070
  • him with power and with clarity.
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:06.120
  • Let me talk to somebody
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:07.060
  • over here.
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:08.040
  • Sometimes God will allow you to
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:10.260
  • be threatened in an area of your
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:13.020
  • life because you've gotten too
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:14.260
  • comfortable.
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:16.060
  • You've gotten too relaxed.
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:17.200
  • You've gotten too laid back.
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.140
  • You think you can do it by
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.060
  • yourself.
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:22.120
  • You think you got enough money,
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:24.000
  • you got enough education, you
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:25.140
  • got enough power, but then all
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:27.020
  • hell breaks loose to drive you
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:29.220
  • to your knees because God wants
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:32.190
  • to wake you up.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:39.190
  • The church folk is over in the
  • 00:06:39.250 --> 00:06:42.250
  • house jumping around, hollering,
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:44.190
  • and praying and singing and
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:46.070
  • clapping their hands, and Peter
  • 00:06:46.070 --> 00:06:49.030
  • is in the prison sleep.
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:54.130
  • And in the middle of his
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:56.030
  • sleeping--now, let me first
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:58.000
  • prove that sleeping is faith,
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:02.160
  • that sleeping is an act
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:03.140
  • of faith.
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:05.110
  • You remember when Jesus was in
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:06.220
  • the storm on the boat, and
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:09.140
  • everybody else was hysterical?
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:11.240
  • And the Bible says Jesus was
  • 00:07:11.240 --> 00:07:13.130
  • asleep on a pillow.
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:16.030
  • God will take you through
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:17.090
  • trouble, and you'll be sleep
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:19.030
  • while other people are going
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:21.050
  • crazy because you believe that
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:23.020
  • God has already got that thing
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:25.200
  • worked out.
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:27.080
  • Who am I talking to?
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:29.170
  • The very fact that you can sleep
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.040
  • is a sign of faith.
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:38.080
  • So, the Bible says that the
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:39.130
  • angel appeared in the prison,
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.270
  • letting me know that hell can't
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:45.210
  • make a prison God can't break
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:47.010
  • into.
  • 00:07:53.210 --> 00:07:56.210
  • Even yours, your prison,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:03.120
  • hell can't make a prison that
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:05.030
  • God can't break into, even
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:08.200
  • yours.
  • 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:12.060
  • The angel appeared, and the 16
  • 00:08:12.220 --> 00:08:15.220
  • soldiers didn't do nothing about
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:18.200
  • it, 'cause the angel just broke
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:21.040
  • all the rules, broke all the
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:24.130
  • protocol, shwoop, and appeared.
  • 00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:27.220
  • Slapped Pete upside the head and
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:31.120
  • said, "Get up.
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:34.120
  • Get up before you get
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:38.090
  • comfortable being down."
  • 00:08:44.170 --> 00:08:47.170
  • I don't think they heard me.
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:49.140
  • I'm gonna tell y'all over here.
  • 00:08:49.140 --> 00:08:51.120
  • Get up before you get
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.160
  • comfortable being down.
  • 00:08:53.170 --> 00:08:56.170
  • Get up.
  • 00:08:56.170 --> 00:08:58.150
  • Who am I talking--yeah, maybe
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:08:59.150
  • it's you.
  • 00:08:59.150 --> 00:09:00.130
  • Get up before you get
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:02.070
  • comfortable being down.
  • 00:09:04.270 --> 00:09:07.270
  • Get your clothes on.
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:10.190
  • You're getting ready to move.
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:18.260
  • That's the Word of God for
  • 00:09:18.260 --> 00:09:20.040
  • somebody in this room.
  • 00:09:20.040 --> 00:09:22.210
  • Get up.
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:24.080
  • Get your clothes on.
  • 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:26.000
  • You're getting ready to move
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:27.230
  • into another dimension, and God
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:35.260
  • says, "I'm gonna walk you past
  • 00:09:35.260 --> 00:09:37.200
  • every 'I can't' that ever stood
  • 00:09:38.270 --> 00:09:41.270
  • up in your life."
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:44.170
  • God said, "I'm gonna walk you
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:45.260
  • right past the threshold of
  • 00:09:45.260 --> 00:09:48.120
  • everything that says that that's
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:52.040
  • not for people like you."
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:57.210
  • Come on, I'm gonna show you how
  • 00:09:57.210 --> 00:10:00.010
  • to go through it.
  • 00:10:00.230 --> 00:10:03.230
  • An angel brought him through
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:10.160
  • while the guard slept.
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:16.030
  • This is a quiet deliverance.
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:22.100
  • This is not a earthquake and the
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:23.270
  • foundations of the prison are
  • 00:10:23.270 --> 00:10:25.190
  • shaking, and the guard coming in
  • 00:10:25.190 --> 00:10:27.220
  • ready to kill himself.
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:29.170
  • This is a quiet deliverance.
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:34.180
  • Have you ever come through
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:37.240
  • something and don't even know
  • 00:10:37.240 --> 00:10:40.220
  • how or when you came through it?
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:46.160
  • You just looked around, and God
  • 00:10:46.160 --> 00:10:48.070
  • had brought you through it.
  • 00:10:48.070 --> 00:10:51.040
  • He brought him through the first
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:53.130
  • door like that, and he brought
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:54.290
  • him through the second door like
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:56.260
  • that, and then when they got to
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.210
  • the gate--the Bible said that
  • 00:11:01.070 --> 00:11:04.070
  • when they got to the
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:06.030
  • gate--everything else they went
  • 00:11:08.280 --> 00:11:11.280
  • through, but when they got to
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:15.160
  • the gate it just opened.
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:22.110
  • Take this Word if it's yours.
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:23.250
  • You had to go through a lotta
  • 00:11:23.250 --> 00:11:26.190
  • stuff to get where you are right
  • 00:11:26.190 --> 00:11:29.030
  • now, but you have gone through
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:31.130
  • your last go-through.
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:36.210
  • In this next dimension something
  • 00:11:36.210 --> 00:11:39.060
  • that you've been praying for a
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:40.260
  • long time is just gonna--slap
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:47.060
  • your neighbor and say, "It just
  • 00:11:47.060 --> 00:11:48.120
  • opened."
  • 00:11:48.120 --> 00:11:50.220
  • It just opened.
  • 00:11:50.220 --> 00:11:53.030

  • the Faith and Family Cruise with

  • - Bishop Jakes: All of this is
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:25.070
  • happening while the church is
  • 00:13:25.160 --> 00:13:28.160
  • praying, but all of this is
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:33.060
  • happening without them knowing.
  • 00:13:38.190 --> 00:13:41.190
  • Wonder what God is doing that
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:44.190
  • you don't even know.
  • 00:13:48.020 --> 00:13:51.020
  • Wonder what God is moving that
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:54.240
  • you don't even know.
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:58.110
  • Wonder what God is fixing that
  • 00:13:58.110 --> 00:14:01.040
  • you don't even know, so look
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:06.030
  • here.
  • 00:14:07.020 --> 00:14:10.020
  • When the angel got him back out
  • 00:14:10.020 --> 00:14:11.240
  • free and loosed, the angel
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:18.250
  • disappeared.
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:23.250
  • Peter didn't go home.
  • 00:14:23.250 --> 00:14:26.250
  • He went to where the prayer was.
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:30.020
  • See, some of y'all get your
  • 00:14:30.020 --> 00:14:31.150
  • blessing and now you're so
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:32.130
  • blessed you gotta be at home.
  • 00:14:36.010 --> 00:14:39.010
  • You need to go to where the
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.230
  • prayer is.
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:45.070
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:47.240
  • The screens are about to
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:48.280
  • collide.
  • 00:14:51.070 --> 00:14:54.070
  • The prison screen and the prayer
  • 00:14:54.070 --> 00:14:56.170
  • screen are about to collide.
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:15:01.000
  • Every door that was closed,
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:04.060
  • prayer opened it, except this
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:08.030
  • last one.
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:12.110
  • When you bring the supernatural
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:14.000
  • into the natural--Peter gets to
  • 00:15:16.210 --> 00:15:19.210
  • the door.
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:22.030
  • The door is closed.
  • 00:15:22.030 --> 00:15:25.000
  • They're on the other side
  • 00:15:25.000 --> 00:15:27.210
  • singing and praying, "If you
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:29.160
  • call on Jesus, he'll answer
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:30.270
  • prayer."
  • 00:15:30.270 --> 00:15:33.000
  • Watch this.
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:35.010
  • Having church has become such
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:37.140
  • a routine.
  • 00:15:37.140 --> 00:15:39.260
  • That they're so busy having
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:41.190
  • church, they have stopped
  • 00:15:41.190 --> 00:15:44.020
  • expecting answers.
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:53.060
  • They are happy to pray about it
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:57.090
  • and shout about it, but not
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:59.170
  • willing to have the faith to
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:02.030
  • receive it when the opportunity
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:04.190
  • comes.
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:09.110
  • Here comes this nameless woman.
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:14.140
  • No title, no position, no
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:17.180
  • credentials, but she could hear.
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:23.080
  • [music]
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:28.200
  • Sometime the person who makes
  • 00:16:28.200 --> 00:16:30.150
  • the most noise don't have the
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:32.140
  • best hearing.
  • 00:16:36.080 --> 00:16:39.080
  • She comes through the door
  • 00:16:39.080 --> 00:16:41.130
  • and says,
  • 00:16:41.130 --> 00:16:43.160
  • "Not only somebody is at the
  • 00:16:43.160 --> 00:16:45.090
  • door, I recognize his voice.
  • 00:16:47.020 --> 00:16:50.020
  • That's Peter's voice."
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.250
  • This woman is so familiar with
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:53.190
  • what she's praying for, that she
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:56.040
  • don't have to see it to
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:57.200
  • recognize it.
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:59.080
  • She can hear it and be sure
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:00.280
  • that's him.
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:04.120
  • Have you familiarized yourself
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:05.240
  • with what you're expecting God
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:07.260
  • to do?
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:12.060
  • Would you recognize it if it
  • 00:17:12.060 --> 00:17:13.240
  • knocked?
  • 00:17:15.220 --> 00:17:18.220
  • Because I see people pray for
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:20.180
  • better all the time and reject
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:25.080
  • better when it comes.
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:31.210
  • Now, I'm almost done.
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.190
  • This is important for you to get
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:34.120
  • this.
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:36.240
  • Until you believe what you have
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:40.220
  • been praying for enough to bring
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:43.260
  • your actions into alignment with
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:49.070
  • your prayer life, you will
  • 00:17:49.070 --> 00:17:52.060
  • believe it, but you won't be
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:55.240
  • able to receive it, because
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:18:00.260
  • prayer will bring it to you, but
  • 00:18:02.060 --> 00:18:05.060
  • you have to open up the door.
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:12.130
  • Some people pray for better, but
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:16.090
  • they're used to lesser, so when
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:19.070
  • better comes they have no
  • 00:18:19.070 --> 00:18:20.210
  • appetite for it.
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:22.270
  • The children of Israel prayed
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:23.270
  • that they would get out of
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.070
  • the--out from under Pharaoh's
  • 00:18:25.070 --> 00:18:26.270
  • hand, but when they got in the
  • 00:18:26.270 --> 00:18:28.250
  • wilderness they didn't like the
  • 00:18:28.250 --> 00:18:30.070
  • food, because all of their
  • 00:18:30.070 --> 00:18:32.190
  • historical data was hooked on
  • 00:18:32.190 --> 00:18:35.090
  • leeks and onions, slavery food,
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:39.210
  • so freedom food tastes funny to
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:43.060
  • people who grew up on slavery
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:45.220
  • food.
  • 00:18:46.100 --> 00:18:49.100
  • Watch this.
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:50.020
  • I'm almost done.
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:52.080
  • You can dance about it and shout
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:54.220
  • about it and pray about it, and
  • 00:18:54.220 --> 00:18:57.020
  • then when it comes to the door
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:59.030
  • you won't open the door, and
  • 00:19:03.040 --> 00:19:06.040
  • you're waiting on God to do it.
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:09.120
  • This is the only door in the
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:11.010
  • story that prayer didn't open.
  • 00:19:15.110 --> 00:19:18.110
  • This is the door that the church
  • 00:19:18.110 --> 00:19:19.260
  • does not talk to you about.
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:24.060
  • We tell you about prayer.
  • 00:19:24.060 --> 00:19:25.140
  • We tell you about faith.
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.000
  • We tell you about believing.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.120
  • We tell you about trusting.
  • 00:19:28.120 --> 00:19:29.220
  • We do not tell you that you have
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:31.090
  • a responsibility.
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:37.030
  • That when you hear the knocking
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:46.170
  • you have to stop praying,
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.180
  • because prayer will not
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:56.230
  • finish it.
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:59.110
  • It brought it to you, but you
  • 00:20:02.160 --> 00:20:05.160
  • have to--let's practice this.
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:08.120
  • Stick your hand out.
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:10.090
  • Twist the doorknob.
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:11.150
  • Open the door.
  • 00:20:13.140 --> 00:20:16.140
  • [music]
  • 00:20:17.060 --> 00:20:20.060
  • You're about to get the hang of
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:21.100
  • this thing.
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:23.090
  • Stick your hand out.
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:25.070
  • Twist the doorknob.
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:27.070
  • Open the door.
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:29.070
  • You're about to get it.
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:30.130
  • You're about to get it.
  • 00:20:30.130 --> 00:20:31.040
  • You're about to get it.
  • 00:20:31.040 --> 00:20:33.060
  • That thing that you've been
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:34.190
  • believing God for, and you've
