  • The Potter's Touch.
  • 00:00:19.260 --> 00:00:21.240
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: And he
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.010
  • divided unto them according
  • 00:00:27.010 --> 00:00:27.260
  • to his ability so the master
  • 00:00:27.260 --> 00:00:29.240
  • has put more thought
  • 00:00:29.240 --> 00:00:32.110
  • into it than the slave.
  • 00:00:32.110 --> 00:00:34.260
  • The slave is entering
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:36.210
  • into something that the master
  • 00:00:36.210 --> 00:00:38.280
  • has pre-thought.
  • 00:00:39.080 --> 00:00:42.080
  • The master was thinking about
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:44.020
  • giving the gift when the slave
  • 00:00:44.020 --> 00:00:46.130
  • never knew it.
  • 00:00:46.130 --> 00:00:48.280
  • So the master was watching your
  • 00:00:48.280 --> 00:00:51.080
  • abilities before he gave you the
  • 00:00:54.100 --> 00:00:57.100
  • opportunity.
  • 00:00:57.100 --> 00:00:59.280
  • Warning!
  • 00:00:59.280 --> 00:01:00.200
  • Warning!
  • 00:01:00.200 --> 00:01:01.130
  • Warning!
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:03.090
  • The master's always watching.
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:08.120
  • And if you prove your ability in
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:12.130
  • something that you think is
  • 00:01:12.130 --> 00:01:14.140
  • minute through which you don't
  • 00:01:15.220 --> 00:01:18.220
  • understand that that minute
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:20.040
  • thing you have been given is the
  • 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:21.260
  • catalyst through which his next
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:24.090
  • decision will be made.
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:31.170
  • Let me stop playing with this
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:32.180
  • text and go on.
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:33.160
  • So he said--he says--he gave one
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:36.060
  • five and he gave one two and he
  • 00:01:37.000 --> 00:01:40.000
  • gave one one.
  • 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:42.010
  • And then he took his journey
  • 00:01:42.010 --> 00:01:44.080
  • into a far country.
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:48.250
  • And the one who had five looked
  • 00:01:48.250 --> 00:01:51.230
  • at it and, listen at his
  • 00:01:51.270 --> 00:01:54.270
  • mentality, says, "How can I make
  • 00:01:54.270 --> 00:01:57.190
  • this more than it is?
  • 00:02:02.190 --> 00:02:05.190
  • How can I make this more than it
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:09.130
  • is?"
  • 00:02:09.130 --> 00:02:10.080
  • Listen at how he thinks.
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:14.140
  • So the one who had five looked
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:15.270
  • at it.
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:16.270
  • He didn't get distracted by the
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:18.190
  • fact, "Look at how much more he
  • 00:02:18.190 --> 00:02:19.260
  • gave me than you" 'cause he's
  • 00:02:21.100 --> 00:02:24.100
  • not racing against you.
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:27.090
  • He's racing against the
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:28.130
  • creativity that exists inside of
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.100
  • himself.
  • 00:02:30.100 --> 00:02:32.010
  • People who race against other
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:33.210
  • people always stumble because
  • 00:02:33.210 --> 00:02:36.060
  • you can't run and--you can't run
  • 00:02:36.060 --> 00:02:37.280
  • forward, looking sideways.
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:41.140
  • What you wanna do is run against
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:43.070
  • the training that you put in,
  • 00:02:43.070 --> 00:02:44.270
  • the strength you've got, the
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:46.170
  • dexterity you've got.
  • 00:02:46.170 --> 00:02:47.240
  • You know your machine, you know
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:49.190
  • what your body will do, and
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:50.290
  • you're running against your
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:52.120
  • ability, not his.
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:54.120
  • You can't run ahead, looking
  • 00:02:54.120 --> 00:02:56.020
  • sideways, trying to prove to
  • 00:02:56.020 --> 00:02:58.000
  • your sister that your husband
  • 00:02:58.000 --> 00:02:59.160
  • can make more money than hers,
  • 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:01.110
  • trying to prove to your mama
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.260
  • that you made it in spite of
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:03.290
  • what she said.
  • 00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:05.020
  • You're gonna trip in a minute.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:11.170
  • Five, two, one.
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:16.000
  • How can I make this more?
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:18.120
  • And to the one who had two, he
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:20.080
  • looked at his two and he said,
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:23.090
  • "I believe I could turn this
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:26.250
  • into four."
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:32.190
  • "How can I make this more?"
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:35.000
  • "I believe I could turn this
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.040
  • into four."
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.200
  • The one who had one said,
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:43.060
  • I've been gifted too.
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:45.100
  • I don't want no trouble.
  • 00:03:51.020 --> 00:03:54.020
  • I's don't want no trouble, boss.
  • 00:03:57.010 --> 00:04:00.030
  • If'n the master come back
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:01.130
  • tonight and I--I's don't want no
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:05.240
  • trouble."
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:08.000
  • If you don't want no trouble,
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.110
  • you don't want no increase.
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:11.140
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:31.140
  • - Bishop Jakes: Five guy is
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:33.090
  • thinking, "How can I make
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:34.240
  • this more?"
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.100
  • Two guy is saying, "How can I
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.270
  • make this four?"
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:39.200
  • The one guy is so preoccupied
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:42.190
  • with survival, that he misses
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:45.170
  • success because he has a
  • 00:04:45.170 --> 00:04:48.090
  • survivalist mentality and he
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:50.270
  • thinks that success is surviving
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:54.050
  • and not succeeding and that's
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:55.280
  • why his life hasn't gotten any
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:57.170
  • further than its gone because he
  • 00:04:57.170 --> 00:05:00.100
  • has misdefined success because
  • 00:05:00.100 --> 00:05:02.240
  • he sees success, watch this,
  • 00:05:02.240 --> 00:05:05.100
  • through the sunglasses of fear
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:09.210
  • and as long as you see success
  • 00:05:10.180 --> 00:05:13.180
  • through fear, you won't touch it
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:15.290
  • 'cause "I's don't want no
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:17.020
  • trouble, boss.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:21.030
  • So supposin' som'ng go wrong
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:23.220
  • 'cause I's don't want no
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:25.120
  • trouble.
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:28.160
  • Not gonna get married 'cause I's
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:29.180
  • don't want no trouble.
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:32.200
  • I'm not gonna take the position
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:33.170
  • 'cause I's don't want no
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:34.140
  • trouble.
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:36.050
  • I'm not gonna go to school
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:37.020
  • 'cause it might be hard, it
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:38.010
  • might--I's don't want no
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:39.120
  • trouble."
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:41.210
  • You'll never have increase when
  • 00:05:41.210 --> 00:05:44.160
  • you are controlled by fear.
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:50.120
  • All three men had the same
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:54.270
  • opportunity.
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:56.240
  • Two men did something with it;
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:58.160
  • one man didn't.
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:05:59.180
  • The man who didn't do it, didn't
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:01.090
  • do it because his fears affected
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:04.250
  • his perception and he allowed
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:07.220
  • the information that had been
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:09.230
  • given to all of them to be
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:11.260
  • processed differently in his
  • 00:06:11.260 --> 00:06:13.080
  • head.
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:13.240
  • Let's look--
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:16.000
  • Look at this.
  • 00:06:16.000 --> 00:06:17.130
  • When the master comes back, the
  • 00:06:17.130 --> 00:06:18.120
  • one with five gives a good
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:20.210
  • report.
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:21.080
  • He's got ten.
  • 00:06:21.080 --> 00:06:22.030
  • The one with two, he's got four.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.260
  • The one with one, and the master
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:25.100
  • said, "What you got?"
  • 00:06:25.100 --> 00:06:26.050
  • He said, "I have the one."
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:27.150
  • He said, "I knew you were a hard
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:29.100
  • master, reaping where you had
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.140
  • not sowed, demanding
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:33.130
  • expectations for your increase
  • 00:06:33.130 --> 00:06:35.160
  • so I hid what I had."
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:38.070
  • Did the one with one know
  • 00:06:38.070 --> 00:06:40.040
  • something that the one with two
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:41.120
  • and the one with five didn't
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.110
  • know?
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:43.060
  • Absolutely not.
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:44.090
  • They all knew the same thing
  • 00:06:44.090 --> 00:06:45.260
  • about the master, which means
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:47.230
  • that while the master was
  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:48.290
  • watching the slave, the slave
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:50.160
  • was watching the master.
  • 00:06:50.250 --> 00:06:53.250
  • So they are all exposed to the
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:56.020
  • same information but look at how
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:59.010
  • differently they process it.
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:01.120
  • Two of them, both of them knew
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:02.240
  • that the master was a hard
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:03.230
  • master.
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:04.090
  • He was a businessman, he was a
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:05.290
  • high-roller, he was a
  • 00:07:05.290 --> 00:07:08.000
  • big-baller, he was a
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:09.160
  • shot-caller.
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:10.270
  • He was used to landing on his
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:12.070
  • feet and taking it from the top.
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:14.000
  • Everybody knew that, but it is
  • 00:07:14.000 --> 00:07:15.250
  • how you process the information
  • 00:07:15.250 --> 00:07:17.270
  • that determines what you do with
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:19.090
  • it.
  • 00:07:19.090 --> 00:07:19.260
  • Two of them knew that about him
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:21.150
  • and said, "I better have
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:22.200
  • increase when he comes back,"
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:24.130
  • and the third one knew that
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:25.150
  • about him and said, "I better
  • 00:07:25.150 --> 00:07:26.250
  • hold on to what I got when he
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:28.190
  • comes back."
  • 00:07:28.190 --> 00:07:29.150
  • How are you processing your
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:31.140
  • situation and how is it
  • 00:07:31.140 --> 00:07:34.080
  • affecting its outcome?
  • 00:07:35.230 --> 00:07:38.230
  • How are you processing your
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:41.030
  • situation and how is it
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:43.210
  • affecting its outcome?
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:45.270
  • Somebody else could be exposed
  • 00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:47.150
  • to the same opportunity, be
  • 00:07:47.150 --> 00:07:49.200
  • exposed to the same information,
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:51.200
  • and perceive it differently and
  • 00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:53.230
  • land on their feet.
  • 00:07:57.020 --> 00:08:00.040
  • So the Lord told me to just ask
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:02.120
  • you the questions, you know, is
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:07.020
  • it your processing that is
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:11.120

  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:58.110
  • we fail to maximize the
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:16:00.160
  • opportunity because of our fear?
  • 00:16:05.160 --> 00:16:08.160
  • Do you not know that fully
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:12.090
  • accomplished people are afraid
  • 00:16:12.090 --> 00:16:14.220
  • too?
  • 00:16:14.220 --> 00:16:17.070
  • But the difference is they feel
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:20.060
  • the fear and override it.
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:24.100
  • It is what you do with the fear.
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:27.070
  • You can use it for fuel to make
  • 00:16:27.070 --> 00:16:29.120
  • excellence or excuses to make
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:33.280
  • dilemmas.
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:36.110
  • Enter into the joys of your
  • 00:16:36.260 --> 00:16:39.260
  • master, rather than celebrating
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:44.160
  • the anonymity of your servitude.
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:49.120
  • To all of the people whose lives
  • 00:16:49.120 --> 00:16:51.210
  • feel like you are just a hair
  • 00:16:51.210 --> 00:16:53.040
  • above flatline, your rainy day
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:17:00.220
  • is not coming and your ship will
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:03.010
  • not come in.
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:05.230
  • There is no pot at the end of
  • 00:17:05.230 --> 00:17:07.100
  • your rainbow.
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:09.040
  • All of them are obscured if you
  • 00:17:09.040 --> 00:17:11.060
  • do not develop the instinct,
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:15.290
  • the instinct, to increase.
  • 00:17:16.160 --> 00:17:19.160
  • There is--there is an instinct.
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:26.110
  • There is an instinct.
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:30.030
  • It's a mindset.
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:31.250
  • There's an instinct, an instinct
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:34.040
  • tells you when to do what.
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:37.080
  • There is an instinct that senses
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:40.170
  • a moment, that senses a moment,
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:43.180
  • that sparks something in your
  • 00:17:43.180 --> 00:17:45.160
  • head that says, "This is the
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:47.020
  • moment."
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:49.030
  • The more instinctive you are, in
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:53.000
  • every area that you are
  • 00:17:53.000 --> 00:17:54.260
  • instinctive, you will see
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:56.030
  • increase.
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:57.160
  • Look at your life.
  • 00:17:57.160 --> 00:17:58.120
  • Please, think, look at your
  • 00:17:58.120 --> 00:17:59.180
  • life.
  • 00:17:59.180 --> 00:18:01.080
  • Are you missing moments because
  • 00:18:01.090 --> 00:18:04.090
  • you don't have the instinct to
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:08.050
  • perceive this moment as that?
  • 00:18:08.210 --> 00:18:11.210
  • Are you talking over moments
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:14.190
  • that you should be using your
  • 00:18:14.190 --> 00:18:15.280
  • instincts and not understanding
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:18.180
  • that you're doing things in the
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:20.270
  • wrong--at the wrong time because
  • 00:18:20.270 --> 00:18:22.190
  • you don't--you are not
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:23.250
  • instinctive to the moment?
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:26.170
  • Are you spending time with
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:28.040
  • people that you should let go
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:30.280
  • and riding over people that you
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:32.200
  • should be connected with because
  • 00:18:32.200 --> 00:18:34.230
  • you don't perceive them
  • 00:18:34.230 --> 00:18:36.240
  • correctly because they don't
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:39.070
  • match your history but they do
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:41.200
  • match your destiny?
  • 00:18:41.200 --> 00:18:44.150
  • Okay, here we go, here we go.
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:46.080
  • I want you to get this.
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:47.100
  • This is what blew my mind,
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:48.150
  • Dr. Jane.
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:49.100
  • He sent him in the outer
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:50.040
  • darkness, wailing and gnashing
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:51.050
  • of teeth.
  • 00:18:51.050 --> 00:18:51.290
  • He reacted to him like he was
  • 00:18:51.290 --> 00:18:53.170
  • crazy.
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:54.040
  • He was angry with him, he was
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:55.050
  • upset.
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:18:56.030
  • And then I thought to myself
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:57.130
  • because when I start studying a
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:18:58.190
  • text, I start in my head before
  • 00:18:58.190 --> 00:19:00.220
  • I go to the book 'cause I've
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:02.100
  • been preaching so long that I
  • 00:19:02.100 --> 00:19:03.190
  • know the text and I know the
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:04.280
  • text real well in my head, and I
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:06.200
  • remembered how he reacted to the
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:08.180
  • servant.
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:09.140
  • And then I thought to myself,
  • 00:19:09.140 --> 00:19:10.260
  • "Wait a minute, I can't remember
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:13.050
  • him ever telling them to
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:16.200
  • increase.
  • 00:19:16.200 --> 00:19:19.160
  • So why are you going to punish
  • 00:19:20.000 --> 00:19:23.000
  • me when you never told me to
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:26.070
  • increase?"
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:27.260
  • I had to go back and look at it
  • 00:19:27.260 --> 00:19:29.000
  • in all the different
  • 00:19:29.000 --> 00:19:29.220
  • translations.
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:30.250
  • He gave it to them but he didn't
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:32.130
  • say, "Take this five and turn it
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:34.040
  • to ten.
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:35.000
  • Take this two and turn it to
  • 00:19:35.000 --> 00:19:35.290
  • four.
  • 00:19:35.290 --> 00:19:36.210
  • Take this one and turn it into
  • 00:19:36.210 --> 00:19:37.240
  • two."
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.170
  • He didn't--he didn't command
  • 00:19:38.170 --> 00:19:39.160
  • them.
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:45.070
  • "And now you're punishing me for
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:48.010
  • not doing something that you
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:50.150
  • never told me to do.
  • 00:19:52.200 --> 00:19:55.200
  • And all my life I've been taught
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:57.090
  • to obey you.
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:20:00.030
  • But if you didn't command me
  • 00:20:00.250 --> 00:20:03.250
  • then how is this a transgression
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:06.190
  • if I have no command?"
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:11.230
  • Welcome to the land of
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.220
  • instincts.
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:19.210
  • This--I want you to see this.
  • 00:20:19.210 --> 00:20:22.190
  • I want you to see this.
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:25.250
  • He gave him five, he gave him
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:27.070
  • two, he gave him one.
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:29.070
  • He said nothing; he just left
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:30.260
  • them to see who had the instinct
  • 00:20:32.060 --> 00:20:35.060
  • to increase, and suddenly I've
  • 00:20:35.060 --> 00:20:37.280
  • remembered, I've realized,
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:39.120
  • honey, that God does measure
  • 00:20:41.150 --> 00:20:44.150
  • instincts.
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:46.230
  • Not just obedience.
  • 00:20:46.230 --> 00:20:49.110
  • It is not doing the least I can
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:51.120
  • get by with to maintain the
  • 00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:53.060
  • opportunity.
  • 00:20:53.060 --> 00:20:55.130
  • It is the instinct to increase
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:59.020
  • that releases the next dimension
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:01.140
  • of blessing.
  • 00:21:01.140 --> 00:21:02.180
  • Anybody want this I got?
  • 00:21:04.060 --> 00:21:07.060
  • Let me prove it and I'll sit
  • 00:21:07.060 --> 00:21:08.190
  • down.
  • 00:21:08.190 --> 00:21:10.160
  • There were ten lepers and they
  • 00:21:15.120 --> 00:21:18.120
  • were across the street and they
  • 00:21:18.120 --> 00:21:19.160
  • said, "Have mercy on me.
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:22.250
  • Cleanse me from my leprosy."
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:25.160
  • And the Bible said that Jesus
  • 00:21:25.160 --> 00:21:27.040
  • stood afar off and he looked at
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:29.230
  • the ten lepers and said--this is
  • 00:21:29.230 --> 00:21:31.290
  • the command: "Go, show yourself
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:37.090
  • to the priest."
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:39.060
  • They were all sick and dying but
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:42.030
  • they were walking in obedience
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:45.010
  • to the commandment of the Lord
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:47.140
  • and said, "I'm gonna do what he
  • 00:21:47.140 --> 00:21:48.260
  • told me to do.
  • 00:21:48.260 --> 00:21:50.230
  • I'm gonna go show myself to the
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:55.090
  • priest."
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.240
  • But while they were walking, the
  • 00:21:56.240 --> 00:21:59.170
  • Bible said they were healed as
  • 00:22:00.070 --> 00:22:03.070
  • they went.
  • 00:22:03.070 --> 00:22:04.250
  • And one of them said, when he
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:07.120
  • looked down and saw he was
  • 00:22:07.120 --> 00:22:09.080
  • healed, he said, "I know he told
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:11.190
  • me to go to the priest but my
  • 00:22:11.190 --> 00:22:14.050
  • instinct says I gotta go back
  • 00:22:15.210 --> 00:22:18.210
  • and tell God thank you."
  • 00:22:18.210 --> 00:22:21.150
  • When he got back to Jesus, the
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:24.150
  • reason I know he was right is
  • 00:22:24.150 --> 00:22:27.030
  • that Jesus looked at him and
  • 00:22:27.050 --> 00:22:30.050
  • said, "Where are--where are the
  • 00:22:33.270 --> 00:22:36.270
  • nine?"
  • 00:22:36.270 --> 00:22:38.280
  • I said, "Lord, why did you
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:40.230
  • expect all of them to come back
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:43.060
  • when you didn't command them to
  • 00:22:43.060 --> 00:22:44.230
  • come back?"
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:45.280
  • He said, "It's not just about
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:47.160
  • obeying me.
  • 00:22:47.160 --> 00:22:49.040
  • Sometimes, you gotta have the
  • 00:22:49.040 --> 00:22:50.260
  • instinct to understand the
  • 00:22:50.260 --> 00:22:53.260
  • power."
  • 00:22:54.140 --> 00:22:57.140
  • Aghhh!
  • 00:22:57.140 --> 00:22:59.030
  • I wanna say this before I take
  • 00:22:59.050 --> 00:23:02.070
  • my seat: some people are led by
  • 00:23:04.070 --> 00:23:07.070
  • instructions but great people
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:09.250
  • move by instinct.
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:13.020
  • So I thought I would ask you
  • 00:23:13.020 --> 00:23:14.290
  • this morning, "Do you have the
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:19.150
  • instinct to increase?"
  • 00:23:19.190 --> 00:23:22.190
  • Slap your neighbor and say,
  • 00:23:22.190 --> 00:23:24.070
  • "Increase."
  • 00:23:24.070 --> 00:23:26.100
  • I speak it over your life.
  • 00:23:26.100 --> 00:23:28.190
  • I speak it over your love.
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:30.260
  • I speak it over your body.
  • 00:23:30.260 --> 00:23:33.060
  • I speak it over your children.

  • 00:23:59.270 --> 00:24:00.170
  • up the windows of heaven, pour
  • 00:24:03.090 --> 00:24:06.090
  • you out a blessing you don't
  • 00:24:08.060 --> 00:24:11.060

  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:22.190
  • because you have the instinct.
  • 00:24:22.190 --> 00:24:25.090
  • I met so many great singers who
  • 00:24:25.090 --> 00:24:27.270
  • had a great voice but poor
  • 00:24:27.270 --> 00:24:30.160
  • instinct.
  • 00:24:31.000 --> 00:24:34.000
  • The instinct tells you when
  • 00:24:37.290 --> 00:24:40.290
  • to do what.
  • 00:24:40.290 --> 00:24:42.060
  • I've known great preachers who
  • 00:24:42.060 --> 00:24:44.000
  • had great information but poor
  • 00:24:44.000 --> 00:24:46.200
  • instincts.
