  • - female announcer: Coming up
  • 00:00:08.240 --> 00:00:09.240
  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:09.240 --> 00:00:11.000
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: I'm trying
  • 00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:11.200
  • to be everything that I was
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:13.170
  • created to be.
  • 00:00:13.170 --> 00:00:15.040
  • And if I could see up higher, I
  • 00:00:15.040 --> 00:00:17.250
  • wanna eat up higher, I wanna
  • 00:00:17.250 --> 00:00:19.270
  • think up higher, I wanna move up
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:22.030
  • higher.
  • 00:00:22.030 --> 00:00:23.100
  • If I have a heart like this and
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:27.220
  • I find myself in an opportunity
  • 00:00:27.220 --> 00:00:30.200
  • like this, you're gonna have to
  • 00:00:30.200 --> 00:00:32.200
  • create in me more capacity,
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:36.000
  • pureness of heart, pureness
  • 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:38.270
  • of heart, so that I can fuel
  • 00:00:38.270 --> 00:00:41.190
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:56.090 --> 00:00:58.240
  • - Cora Jakes-Coleman: Hey,
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:03.210
  • y'all.
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:04.140
  • It is Pastor Cora Jakes-Coleman
  • 00:01:04.140 --> 00:01:05.220
  • and you are watching,
  • 00:01:05.220 --> 00:01:07.140
  • "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:08.280
  • Have you ever been in the
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:10.020
  • kitchen, thought you was about
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:11.170
  • to really bake a cake that came
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:13.140
  • out of the box, and you put all
  • 00:01:13.140 --> 00:01:14.270
  • the ingredients together the way
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:16.170
  • you thought it was supposed
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:17.150
  • to go, and it still didn't
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:19.040
  • turn out right?
  • 00:01:19.040 --> 00:01:20.180
  • That's happened to me before.
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:22.140
  • That can kinda happen
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:23.240
  • in our lives.
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:24.190
  • We think we grab the right
  • 00:01:24.190 --> 00:01:25.230
  • ingredients when we really
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.070
  • don't.
  • 00:01:27.070 --> 00:01:28.040
  • We think we've got the
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:29.080
  • instructions down when we really
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:31.170
  • don't.
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:32.140
  • And the truth is, we need an
  • 00:01:32.140 --> 00:01:34.280
  • expert.
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:35.250
  • We need a chef.
  • 00:01:35.250 --> 00:01:37.030
  • We need help.
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:38.180
  • We need someone to help us turn
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:40.270
  • our messy cakes into something
  • 00:01:40.270 --> 00:01:43.100
  • edible.
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:44.290
  • Well, today my dad is gonna be
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:47.040
  • our chef.
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:48.020
  • He's gonna be our tip.
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:49.020
  • He's gonna be our resource.
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:50.060
  • He's gonna be our expert to help
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:52.080
  • us get our spirits back in track
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:55.170
  • and not burnt.
  • 00:01:55.170 --> 00:01:56.280
  • - Bishop Jakes: There are some
  • 00:02:02.140 --> 00:02:03.100
  • things that I want you to see
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:04.170
  • about the giraffe.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:06.180
  • The giraffe, zarafah was the
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:09.000
  • original name.
  • 00:02:09.000 --> 00:02:10.010
  • It's Arabic, zarafah, probably
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:12.040
  • originally African.
  • 00:02:12.040 --> 00:02:14.020
  • The giraffe is called giraffe
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:17.050
  • because it literally means fast
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:19.040
  • walker.
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:21.280
  • I'm a fast walker.
  • 00:02:21.280 --> 00:02:24.110
  • I'm a fast walker.
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:25.240
  • I could move.
  • 00:02:25.240 --> 00:02:27.080
  • For a short distance, the
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:29.130
  • giraffe can move about 40 miles
  • 00:02:29.130 --> 00:02:32.060
  • an hour.
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:35.000
  • That's rolling for something
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.280
  • walking.
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:39.160
  • You couldn't go 40 miles an hour
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:40.220
  • if I was chasing you with an
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:42.280
  • uzi.
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:45.290
  • You'd be trying real hard, but
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:48.140
  • It can move from here, to there,
  • 00:02:52.140 --> 00:02:54.260
  • to the other place.
  • 00:02:54.260 --> 00:02:55.280
  • It's a fast walker.
  • 00:02:55.280 --> 00:02:57.140
  • It moves really, really, really
  • 00:02:57.140 --> 00:03:00.060
  • fast.
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:01.030
  • And what I want you to
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:01.250
  • understand, I'm using the
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:03.050
  • giraffe to discuss who you are.
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:07.120
  • How many fast walkers do we have
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.270
  • in here?
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:10.120
  • Now, I'm not talking about fast
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.260
  • walkers like at the gym on the
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:13.050
  • treadmill.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:14.210
  • Have you ever gone to the gym
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:16.040
  • and gotten on the treadmill
  • 00:03:16.040 --> 00:03:17.170
  • beside somebody who was showing
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.030
  • off?
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:22.190
  • Don't you just hate those
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:23.120
  • people, that you just go in the
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.110
  • gym and you're trying to do your
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:26.210
  • little workout, and they make
  • 00:03:26.210 --> 00:03:28.140
  • you have to amp up just so you
  • 00:03:28.140 --> 00:03:31.130
  • don't look bad.
  • 00:03:31.130 --> 00:03:33.210
  • I hate those people.
  • 00:03:33.210 --> 00:03:36.090
  • And what I hate worse is when
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:38.240
  • they're walking fast or running
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:40.240
  • fast and not sweating.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:43.040
  • At least sweat.
  • 00:03:43.040 --> 00:03:45.150
  • Don't be talking on the phone
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.060
  • and you're outrunning me, too.
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:49.030
  • It's just--and you feel
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:51.070
  • embarrassed because you're
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:52.150
  • behind.
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:54.190
  • Some of you are coupled up with
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:56.030
  • fast walkers, fast thinkers,
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:59.250
  • fast movers, and there you are
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:02.190
  • moving through life like this.
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:06.130
  • And after--and at first it's
  • 00:04:06.130 --> 00:04:07.210
  • okay 'cause you say, "I'm doing
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:08.270
  • my own thing," but at a certain
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:10.220
  • point you start to really get
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:12.080
  • frustrated 'cause you look at
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.060
  • somebody you started with and
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:16.000
  • they are way--as my grandmother
  • 00:04:16.000 --> 00:04:17.170
  • would say, "They way down
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:18.250
  • yonder," and you're still up
  • 00:04:18.250 --> 00:04:21.080
  • here.
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:22.060
  • And you're--about 40 or so, it
  • 00:04:22.060 --> 00:04:23.170
  • kicks it real good that you are
  • 00:04:23.170 --> 00:04:25.290
  • way behind.
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:27.090
  • Yeah, I don't know why it
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.010
  • doesn't kick in until you're out
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:29.050
  • of time almost and then you say,
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:31.110
  • "I should've been moving fast."
  • 00:04:31.110 --> 00:04:33.100
  • This is your year to be a fast
  • 00:04:33.100 --> 00:04:35.250
  • Tell your neighbor, "I'm fixing
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:42.100
  • to pick up the pace around
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:42.290
  • Now, I'm fixing to pick up the
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:49.220
  • pace.
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:50.220
  • I'm gonna start moving on the
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:53.060
  • level that I'm thinking, and not
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:56.280
  • moving on the level that makes
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.260
  • I'm getting ready to redeem the
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.170
  • time I lost.
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:08.240
  • I'm not gonna--I may make
  • 00:05:08.240 --> 00:05:10.040
  • mistakes, but they're not gonna
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:11.080
  • be the same old mistakes over
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:13.180
  • and over again.
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:14.270
  • I'm getting ready to do some
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:16.040
  • I'm going to the next dimension.
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:20.020
  • Are you with me?
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:21.190
  • Now, you have to understand, the
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:26.030
  • reason the giraffe can walk fast
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.160
  • is that he's built for it.
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:32.150
  • Is your life a reflection of
  • 00:05:32.150 --> 00:05:34.160
  • what you're built for or is it a
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:38.100
  • reflection of your situation?
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:41.150
  • Because frustration comes when
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:44.040
  • you are built to do 40 but you
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:46.250
  • are stuck in a 5 mile an hour
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.200
  • zone.
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:53.000
  • When you have the potential, and
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:54.240
  • the legs, and the leg gait to
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:56.290
  • really move out, and you're
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:58.280
  • fooling around with somebody
  • 00:05:58.280 --> 00:06:00.030
  • who's going like this...
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:01.270
  • after awhile--the Bible says it
  • 00:06:01.270 --> 00:06:03.130
  • this way, "How can two walk
  • 00:06:03.130 --> 00:06:04.270
  • together save they agree?"
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:06.210
  • It becomes really, really
  • 00:06:06.210 --> 00:06:07.240
  • frustrating.
  • 00:06:07.240 --> 00:06:08.250
  • Or when you're a fast walker and
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.200
  • you're stuck in a small cage.
  • 00:06:10.210 --> 00:06:13.210
  • When you have the potential to
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:15.080
  • be a general manager but you're
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.260
  • stuck flipping hamburgers, it
  • 00:06:16.260 --> 00:06:18.290
  • becomes a real frustrating
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.010
  • thing.
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:20.290
  • It's nothing wrong with flipping
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.070
  • hamburgers.
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:23.080
  • Even managers flip hamburgers.
  • 00:06:23.080 --> 00:06:25.060
  • But it's one thing to flip
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:26.140
  • hamburgers and another thing to
  • 00:06:26.140 --> 00:06:28.040
  • be stuck on a level that's
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:29.230
  • beneath the way you think, and
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:31.170
  • you're not eating on the level
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:33.240
  • of your vision, oh my god, and
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:36.120
  • your frustration is a direct
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:38.190
  • derivative of your ability to
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:41.180
  • eat on the level of your
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:42.160
  • thinking.
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:45.230
  • Am I helping anybody yet?
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:48.080
  • The giraffe is 16 to 20 feet
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:51.140
  • tall.
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:53.170
  • That's tall, 16 to 20 feet tall.
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:57.290
  • That's a big joker.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:07:00.140
  • That joker's up there.
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:02.230
  • Look, can you imagine what
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:04.170
  • life looks like from up there?
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:08.120
  • To be that tall, to be that
  • 00:07:08.120 --> 00:07:09.240
  • tall, his neck is 9 feet long.
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:13.050
  • He's got a long neck.
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:18.030
  • God built him with a long neck
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:20.280
  • and gave him long legs.
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:22.190
  • The body is not that big.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:24.060
  • The body's not that big, but
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:25.030
  • what's really big is the neck.
  • 00:07:25.030 --> 00:07:26.270
  • The neck and the legs gives him
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:29.040
  • the ability to see on another
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:32.250
  • He's able to see on another
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:41.150
  • level.
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:42.150
  • His feet are on the ground.
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:47.090
  • His feet's on the same ground as
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:49.010
  • the rabbit, and the turtle, and
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:51.240
  • everything else that's crawling
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:52.260
  • around.
  • 00:07:52.260 --> 00:07:53.270
  • His feet's right down with the
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:54.240
  • rest of us, but his head is so
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.190
  • far up in the air that he can
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:58.280
  • see things that other people
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:00.210
  • don't see.
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:02.080
  • If he needs the affirmation of
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:05.060
  • the things on the ground, he's
  • 00:08:05.060 --> 00:08:07.050
  • going to be frustrated looking
  • 00:08:07.050 --> 00:08:08.250
  • in the air, because the stuff on
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.250
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.080
  • to you?
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:19.280
  • So, while his feet are in one
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:21.200
  • dimension, his head is in
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:23.270
  • another dimension, and he's
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:27.030
  • eating vision and vittles.
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:29.180
  • He's eating on the level that
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:31.110
  • he's seeing.
  • 00:08:31.110 --> 00:08:32.200
  • He's eating on the level that
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:34.150
  • he's seeing.
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:35.200
  • He's eating on the level that
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.160
  • he's seeing.
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:38.190
  • This is your year to eat on the
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:41.160
  • level that you're seeing, to
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:43.130
  • maximize your opportunity, to
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:45.180
  • step into your divine purpose.
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:47.240
  • I don't care.
  • 00:08:47.240 --> 00:08:48.220
  • I don't care how much you make.
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:49.210
  • I don't care where you went to
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.190
  • school.
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:51.170
  • I don't care what your mother's
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:52.120
  • name is.
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:53.150
  • Some of you have got a long
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:55.160
  • neck.
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:56.160
  • Your feet might be down here,
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:58.180
  • your feet might have started
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:08:59.280
  • over here, but you got a long
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:01.290
  • neck to see into the next
  • 00:09:01.290 --> 00:09:04.060
  • dimension.
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:05.130
  • And it's high time for you to
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:07.060
  • eat on the level that you're
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:09.080
  • seeing.
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:10.030
  • Am I talking to anybody today?
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:12.040
  • Am I talking to anybody today?
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:15.120
  • Okay, are you with me so far?
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:18.010
  • We doing pretty good?
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:19.290
  • So we've learned a few things.
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:21.070
  • We've learned that we're meant
  • 00:09:21.070 --> 00:09:23.140
  • to be fast walkers, okay?
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:26.070
  • Much like the giraffe,
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:27.110
  • many of us are fast walkers.
  • 00:09:27.110 --> 00:09:29.210
  • We've got the potential,
  • 00:09:29.210 --> 00:09:31.160
  • When you've got the muscles to
  • 00:09:34.210 --> 00:09:36.180
  • do more and the situation to do
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:39.010
  • When you got the muscles to love
  • 00:09:44.120 --> 00:09:46.270
  • on this level, but you're in a
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:52.190
  • situation where the love is on
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:54.230
  • that level, you're in prison.
  • 00:09:54.280 --> 00:09:57.280
  • When you've got the muscles to
  • 00:09:57.280 --> 00:10:00.160
  • be progressive on this level,
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:03.020
  • but the situation is only
  • 00:10:03.020 --> 00:10:04.240
  • challenging on this level,
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:07.130
  • you're in prison.
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.220
  • And sometimes you have to be in
  • 00:10:08.220 --> 00:10:10.010
  • a prison for a while because of
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:12.280
  • circumstances, but to live your
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:15.080
  • whole life beneath the highest
  • 00:10:15.080 --> 00:10:18.050
  • and best expression of yourself
  • 00:10:18.050 --> 00:10:20.270
  • is a tragedy.
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:22.060
  • I'm not trying to compete with
  • 00:10:22.060 --> 00:10:23.160
  • you, you, you, you, or you.
  • 00:10:23.160 --> 00:10:25.120
  • I'm trying to be everything that
  • 00:10:25.120 --> 00:10:27.230
  • I was created to be.
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:29.220
  • And if I can see up higher, I
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:32.160
  • wanna eat up higher, I wanna
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:34.170
  • think up higher, I wanna move up
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.220
  • higher.
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:39.000
  • There are giraffes and there are
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:41.120
  • turtles.
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:42.260
  • They occupy the same space.
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:46.150
  • The turtle is geographically on
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:48.200
  • the same location as the giraffe
  • 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:51.090
  • is.
  • 00:10:51.090 --> 00:10:52.150
  • Neither one of them are lying.
  • 00:10:52.150 --> 00:10:55.110
  • The turtle is eating on the
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:57.090
  • level of his vision and the
  • 00:10:57.090 --> 00:10:59.200
  • giraffe is eating on the level
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:01.210
  • of his vision.
  • 00:11:01.210 --> 00:11:03.090
  • And whenever turtles comment on
  • 00:11:03.090 --> 00:11:05.230
  • giraffes, you cannot trust their
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:08.140
  • comments because their comments
  • 00:11:08.140 --> 00:11:10.220
  • are a reflection of their
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:12.240
  • worldview.
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.160
  • I don't know who I'm talking to
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:16.220
  • today, but somebody in this
  • 00:11:16.220 --> 00:11:19.060
  • room, you're paying far too much
  • 00:11:19.060 --> 00:11:21.200
  • attention to the turtles around
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:23.280
  • you.
  • 00:11:23.280 --> 00:11:25.000
  • Pick your head up in the air and
  • 00:11:25.000 --> 00:11:28.000
  • start eating on the level that
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:31.150
  • my God--I feel like God is
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:34.220
  • trying to tell you something
  • 00:11:34.220 --> 00:11:35.290
  • Touch ten people and tell 'em,
  • 00:11:42.140 --> 00:11:43.080
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:51.060
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:11:51.060 --> 00:11:52.270
  • Leave 'em alone.

  • Leave 'em alone.
  • 00:11:54.050 --> 00:11:55.150
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:57.030
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.190
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:12:00.040
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:12:00.040 --> 00:12:02.100
  • Leave those turtles.
  • 00:12:02.100 --> 00:12:04.280
  • Leave those turtles alone.
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:07.210
  • My God, who am I talking to
  • 00:12:07.210 --> 00:12:09.160
  • today?
  • 00:12:09.160 --> 00:12:10.200
  • They're always gonna have time
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:28.020
  • to comment.
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:29.120

  • business.

  • They're always gonna give you a
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:33.080
  • critique and say what you
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:35.040
  • should've done, and what you
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:36.250
  • should've said, and how you
  • 00:12:36.250 --> 00:12:38.220
  • should've acted.
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:40.020
  • You've got to follow your
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:46.200
  • instincts to the level of
  • 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:53.000
  • living, and thinking, and
  • 00:12:54.290 --> 00:12:57.290

  • can.

  • you can.
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:49.100

  • 00:15:49.100 --> 00:15:51.080
  • and the structure to accommodate
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:53.240
  • his possibilities.
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:55.230
  • Part of your purpose, the clues
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:57.170
  • to your purpose is in what
  • 00:15:57.170 --> 00:15:59.070
  • you're built for, whether you
  • 00:15:59.070 --> 00:16:01.170
  • can or cannot take pressure,
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:03.220
  • whether you can or cannot be in
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:05.090
  • the light, whether you can or
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:06.170
  • cannot work well by yourself,
  • 00:16:06.170 --> 00:16:07.260
  • whether you can or cannot
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:09.110
  • interact with people, manage,
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.160
  • and develop.
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:12.180
  • Some of that is wired into you,
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:15.010
  • and as you follow your
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:16.020
  • instincts, you'll find where you
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:18.010
  • fit.
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:20.100
  • The turtle cannot see that high
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:24.070
  • or move that fast, and it's not
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:27.110
  • really his legs that are the
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:29.280
  • problem.
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:31.190
  • It's his heart.
  • 00:16:32.090 --> 00:16:35.090
  • The turtle's heart is the size
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:38.130
  • of my thumb, so it won't pump
  • 00:16:41.180 --> 00:16:44.180
  • blood fast enough to fuel flight
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:49.090
  • enough, to move quickly enough,
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:53.100
  • to understand why the giraffe is
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:55.210
  • so thirsty.
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:57.020
  • Why does the giraffe need this?
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.050
  • They don't need you--people go,
  • 00:16:59.050 --> 00:17:00.180
  • "They don't need all of that.
  • 00:17:00.180 --> 00:17:01.250
  • It's not necessary."
  • 00:17:01.250 --> 00:17:03.080
  • Well, the reason it's not
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:04.060
  • necessary for you is that you
  • 00:17:04.060 --> 00:17:05.260
  • only have to fuel a thumb-sized
  • 00:17:06.040 --> 00:17:09.040
  • The man, on the other hand, has
  • 00:17:16.150 --> 00:17:19.150
  • a 9 to 12-ounce heart.
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:23.030
  • It's--bring my stuff out here.
  • 00:17:23.030 --> 00:17:25.200
  • Bring this stuff out here.
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:26.260
  • The man has a 9 to 12-ounce
  • 00:17:26.260 --> 00:17:29.210
  • heart, and it's so much bigger
  • 00:17:29.290 --> 00:17:32.290
  • than the turtle's that it will
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:34.090
  • fuel blood so he can function on
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:37.110
  • all of these different levels.
  • 00:17:37.110 --> 00:17:39.080
  • Y'all trying to see what I'm
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:40.040
  • gonna do.
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.000
  • That's it, y'all just trying--
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.090
  • See, what I'm trying to do is
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:45.250
  • make you understand that this is
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:47.250
  • a heart thing and not just a
  • 00:17:48.230 --> 00:17:51.230
  • head thing.
  • 00:17:51.230 --> 00:17:53.150
  • Now, the Bible says, "Out of the
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:54.210
  • heart flows the issues of life."
  • 00:17:54.210 --> 00:17:57.090
  • Out of the heart flows the
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:59.090
  • issues of life.
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:00.180
  • Out of the heart--oh my God.
  • 00:18:01.030 --> 00:18:04.030
  • Out of the heart.
  • 00:18:04.030 --> 00:18:05.020
  • Now, when I say "heart," I'm not
  • 00:18:05.020 --> 00:18:07.110
  • really--when the Bible says
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:08.290
  • "heart," it's not even talking
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:10.100
  • about the thumpy thumpy thing in
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:11.290
  • your chest.
  • 00:18:11.290 --> 00:18:13.100
  • It's really talking about your
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:14.120
  • inner spirit, your capacity to
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:18.260
  • absorb, handle, and manage
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:21.190
  • situations.
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:22.260
  • It's not a head thing.
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:25.060
  • You can have degree enough to do
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:27.020
  • it but not have heart enough to
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:30.020
  • do it.
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:31.250
  • Do you have the capacity of
  • 00:18:31.250 --> 00:18:34.110
  • heart to love on that level, to
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:37.070
  • live on that level, to think on
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:38.140
  • that level, to be on that level?
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:43.050
  • Is your heart or the narrowness
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:45.170
  • thereof some clue that you are
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:51.110
  • over your head, beyond your
  • 00:18:51.110 --> 00:18:53.240
  • boundaries, and out of your
  • 00:18:53.240 --> 00:18:55.210
  • parameters?
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:58.120
  • You can't have a thumb-sized
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:19:01.040
  • heart and run 40 miles an hour.
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:05.040
  • It will burst.
  • 00:19:05.040 --> 00:19:08.030
  • Your capacity will only allow
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:11.180
  • you to move slow.
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:14.260
  • So, for all the turtles in the
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:16.110
  • room, nothing wrong with being a
  • 00:19:17.030 --> 00:19:20.030
  • turtle until you start
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:22.150
  • Excuse me, you can't run
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:36.010
  • a barber shop.
  • 00:19:36.010 --> 00:19:38.130
  • You can't run a cupcake stand.
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:42.000
  • And there you are making these
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:44.020
  • sloppy cupcakes, talking about,
  • 00:19:44.020 --> 00:19:45.230
  • "What they need to do down there
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:46.290
  • I'm not hating on your cupcakes
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:53.170
  • until you're commenting on
  • 00:19:53.170 --> 00:19:55.060
  • Have you ever gotten a turtle
  • 00:20:06.160 --> 00:20:08.260
  • comment on a giraffe
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:11.050
  • opportunity?
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:14.190
  • Don't hate the turtles and don't
  • 00:20:16.070 --> 00:20:19.070
  • drag the turtles.
  • 00:20:19.170 --> 00:20:22.170
  • If they don't want to go, no
  • 00:20:23.120 --> 00:20:26.120
  • matter how much it hurts, let
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:31.270
  • 'em go.
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:34.280
  • Because how people respond, they
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:37.010
  • always respond according to
  • 00:20:37.010 --> 00:20:38.230
  • their capacity, which is a heart
  • 00:20:39.000 --> 00:20:42.000
  • thing.
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:44.110
  • Turtle-sized heart.
  • 00:20:44.110 --> 00:20:47.090
  • The man has--let me show you
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.220
  • something.
  • 00:20:48.220 --> 00:20:49.160
  • Bring it on.
  • 00:20:49.160 --> 00:20:50.100
  • Give me this first one.
  • 00:20:50.100 --> 00:20:52.160
  • This isn't a great illustration
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:54.060
  • because I really needed a
  • 00:20:54.060 --> 00:20:55.160
  • smaller bag of flour, but this
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:58.060
  • was the smallest one they had.
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:20:59.200
  • The human heart is about a
  • 00:20:59.200 --> 00:21:01.000
  • little less than half the size
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:02.080
  • of this, okay?
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:05.180
  • So, humans can fuel more
  • 00:21:07.260 --> 00:21:10.260
  • capacity than turtles.
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:17.230
  • Hold that.
  • 00:21:18.020 --> 00:21:21.020
  • The giraffe's heart is exactly
  • 00:21:21.280 --> 00:21:24.280
  • this size.
  • 00:21:25.160 --> 00:21:28.160
  • That's the size, 25 pounds.
  • 00:21:29.130 --> 00:21:32.130
  • That's how big.
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:35.290
  • That's how big.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:37.050
  • That's how big the capacity of
  • 00:21:37.050 --> 00:21:40.030
  • the heart of the giraffe is to
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:42.270
  • fuel him.
  • 00:21:42.270 --> 00:21:44.130
  • When he gets ready to run, this
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:46.100
  • is what's thumping.
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:47.170
  • Boom boom boom boom, boom boom
  • 00:21:47.170 --> 00:21:48.110
  • boom boom, boom boom boom boom,
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:49.210
  • boom boom boom boom, boom boom
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:50.160
  • boom boom, boom boom boom boom,
  • 00:21:50.160 --> 00:21:51.220
  • boom boom boom boom, boom boom
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.250
  • boom boom.
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:55.160
  • And so, he can stretch his neck
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:58.060
  • without fainting.
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:00.080
  • God gave him a big heart 'cause
  • 00:22:00.080 --> 00:22:02.130
  • he had a big neck, 'cause he had
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.180
  • a big vision, so he could eat on
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:07.110
  • a big level.
  • 00:22:07.110 --> 00:22:08.250
  • And the more he eats on the tops
  • 00:22:08.250 --> 00:22:10.150
  • of the trees, the more the heart
  • 00:22:10.150 --> 00:22:12.140
  • goes "Boom boom boom boom, boom
  • 00:22:12.140 --> 00:22:13.210
  • boom boom boom, boom boom boom
  • 00:22:13.210 --> 00:22:14.240
  • boom," and the faster the legs
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:16.240
  • run, and the more he can do.
  • 00:22:16.240 --> 00:22:19.110
  • I am telling you, it is not
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:22.060
  • about your talent.
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:23.240
  • It is not about who you know and
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:25.160
  • don't know.
  • 00:22:25.160 --> 00:22:26.170
  • It is not about who likes you
  • 00:22:26.170 --> 00:22:27.270
  • and who doesn't like you.
  • 00:22:27.270 --> 00:22:29.010
  • It is about your capacity.
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:31.120
  • It is about your heart.
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:33.080
  • Out of the heart flows the
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:35.110
  • issues of life.
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:37.170
  • And I am telling you, until you
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:40.010
  • say, "Create in me a clean
  • 00:22:43.170 --> 00:22:46.170
  • heart, and renew a right spirit
  • 00:22:46.180 --> 00:22:49.180
  • within me, and fix my heart so
  • 00:22:49.180 --> 00:22:52.120
  • that I don't miss my
  • 00:22:52.120 --> 00:22:53.260
  • opportunity.
  • 00:22:53.260 --> 00:22:55.040
  • Because if I have a heart like
  • 00:22:55.070 --> 00:22:58.070
  • this and I find myself in an
  • 00:22:59.110 --> 00:23:02.130
  • opportunity like this, you're
  • 00:23:02.130 --> 00:23:04.150
  • gonna have to create in me more
  • 00:23:04.150 --> 00:23:07.010
  • capacity, pureness of heart,
  • 00:23:07.080 --> 00:23:10.080
  • pureness of heart, so that I can
  • 00:23:10.080 --> 00:23:12.230
  • fuel all that I was created to
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:15.190
  • do or I'm gonna have to give up
  • 00:23:15.190 --> 00:23:17.290
  • the chance and live with the
  • 00:23:17.290 --> 00:23:20.190
  • turtles."
  • 00:23:20.190 --> 00:23:22.060
  • That's why I come to church.
  • 00:23:34.120 --> 00:23:37.120
  • That's why I serve the Lord.
  • 00:23:37.220 --> 00:23:40.220
  • Because the God that I serve is
  • 00:23:40.220 --> 00:23:43.210
  • the only one who can create in
  • 00:23:43.210 --> 00:23:46.090
  • me the heart I need for the
  • 00:23:46.250 --> 00:23:49.250
  • opportunities that I have so I
  • 00:23:49.250 --> 00:23:52.070
  • can function in the capacity
  • 00:23:52.070 --> 00:23:54.190
  • that I need to function in, and
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:58.040
  • and these squirrels, and these
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:08.210
  • rabbits, and these snakes, and
  • 00:24:11.270 --> 00:24:14.270
  • these foxes, and these possums,
  • 00:24:18.170 --> 00:24:21.170
  • and these skunks, and all of the
  • 00:24:22.110 --> 00:24:25.110
  • predators, lions, and tigers,
  • 00:24:26.100 --> 00:24:29.100
  • bears--
  • 00:24:29.100 --> 00:24:30.060
  • - Bishop Jakes: I have to learn
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:43.230
  • how to live with the snakes.
  • 00:24:45.040 --> 00:24:48.040
  • I can't kill every snake.
  • 00:24:49.170 --> 00:24:52.170
  • I can't respond to every turtle.
  • 00:24:53.200 --> 00:24:56.200
  • I have to hold my head up, my
  • 00:24:56.270 --> 00:24:59.270
