  • - Before you can
  • 00:00:35.231 --> 00:00:36.933
  • - Before you canreceive anything,
  • 00:00:36.933 --> 00:00:40.270
  • receive anything,you have to release something.
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:40.804
  • you have to release something.For those of you
  • 00:00:40.804 --> 00:00:42.405
  • For those of youwho like to take notes,
  • 00:00:42.405 --> 00:00:42.939
  • who like to take notes,you can write down
  • 00:00:42.939 --> 00:00:45.575
  • you can write downthe word "release,"
  • 00:00:45.575 --> 00:00:46.976
  • the word "release,"because process is revealed
  • 00:00:46.976 --> 00:00:48.912
  • because process is revealedin potential, and potential
  • 00:00:48.912 --> 00:00:50.847
  • in potential, and potentialis revealed in process.
  • 00:00:50.847 --> 00:00:51.581
  • is revealed in process.And it comes a little bit
  • 00:00:51.581 --> 00:00:53.349
  • And it comes a little bitalong and along,
  • 00:00:53.349 --> 00:00:53.950
  • along and along,but the first step
  • 00:00:53.950 --> 00:00:57.687
  • but the first stepis to release.
  • 00:00:57.687 --> 00:01:00.924
  • is to release.The sower must release the seed
  • 00:01:00.924 --> 00:01:03.293
  • The sower must release the seedto see what it could be.
  • 00:01:03.293 --> 00:01:04.294
  • to see what it could be.I'm just wondering,
  • 00:01:04.294 --> 00:01:05.962
  • I'm just wondering,is there something
  • 00:01:05.962 --> 00:01:07.864
  • is there somethingthat you need to release
  • 00:01:07.864 --> 00:01:10.200
  • that you need to releasein your life today,
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:12.168
  • in your life today,and could it be possible
  • 00:01:12.168 --> 00:01:12.902
  • and could it be possiblethat you are looking
  • 00:01:12.902 --> 00:01:14.571
  • that you are lookingat something,
  • 00:01:14.571 --> 00:01:16.606
  • at something,praying about something,
  • 00:01:16.606 --> 00:01:17.941
  • praying about something,and trying to manipulate
  • 00:01:17.941 --> 00:01:20.343
  • and trying to manipulatesomething that God wants you
  • 00:01:20.343 --> 00:01:22.145
  • something that God wants youto release so that
  • 00:01:22.145 --> 00:01:24.647
  • to release so thatit can mature and manifest?
  • 00:01:24.647 --> 00:01:25.849
  • it can mature and manifest?And this is for all of us
  • 00:01:25.849 --> 00:01:29.652
  • And this is for all of uswho are control freaks,
  • 00:01:29.652 --> 00:01:31.921
  • who are control freaks,because until we release it,
  • 00:01:31.921 --> 00:01:34.257
  • because until we release it,It can't grow.
  • 00:01:34.257 --> 00:01:34.991
  • It can't grow.Look at your neighbor and say,
  • 00:01:34.991 --> 00:01:36.726
  • Look at your neighbor and say,"Let it go."
  • 00:01:36.726 --> 00:01:39.362
  • "Let it go."Tell them, "Watch it grow.
  • 00:01:39.362 --> 00:01:42.432
  • Tell them, "Watch it grow.Let it go and watch it grow."
  • 00:01:42.432 --> 00:01:43.266
  • Let it go and watch it grow."But it can't grow
  • 00:01:43.266 --> 00:01:45.735
  • But it can't growif you're trying to control it.
  • 00:01:45.735 --> 00:01:47.036
  • if you're trying to control it.Right?
  • 00:01:47.036 --> 00:01:48.605
  • Right?As starving seeds and then
  • 00:01:48.605 --> 00:01:50.673
  • As starving seeds and thenas strangled seeds,
  • 00:01:50.673 --> 00:01:52.208
  • as strangled seeds,holding on so tight,
  • 00:01:52.208 --> 00:01:53.943
  • holding on so tight,oh, it's my time.
  • 00:01:53.943 --> 00:01:55.178
  • oh, it's my time.It's my money.
  • 00:01:55.178 --> 00:01:57.080
  • It's my money.I feel so sorry for people
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:02:00.316
  • I feel so sorry for peoplewho aren't generous.
  • 00:02:00.316 --> 00:02:01.985
  • who aren't generous.I feel so bad for you,
  • 00:02:01.985 --> 00:02:03.786
  • I feel so bad for you,because all stinginess does
  • 00:02:03.786 --> 00:02:05.121
  • because all stinginess doesis strangle the seed
  • 00:02:05.121 --> 00:02:07.657
  • is strangle the seedthat God has given you.
  • 00:02:07.657 --> 00:02:09.726
  • that God has given you.And if you could let it go,
  • 00:02:09.726 --> 00:02:13.196
  • And if you could let it go,who knows what it could be?
  • 00:02:13.196 --> 00:02:14.097
  • who knows what it could be?What if I just preached
  • 00:02:14.097 --> 00:02:16.766
  • What if I just preachedthis sermon in the mirror,
  • 00:02:16.766 --> 00:02:19.102
  • this sermon in the mirror,it would bounce right back.
  • 00:02:19.102 --> 00:02:20.136
  • it would bounce right back.But if I put it out through
  • 00:02:20.136 --> 00:02:21.204
  • But if I put it out throughthat camera,
  • 00:02:21.204 --> 00:02:23.072
