  • I'm Gregory Dickow, and today we're gonna talk about pain
  • 00:00:02.180 --> 00:00:05.240
  • and how to be free from it.
  • 00:00:05.270 --> 00:00:07.240
  • Every one of us knows what it's like to hurt.
  • 00:00:07.270 --> 00:00:10.160
  • Everyone knows what it's like to be hurt.
  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:13.090
  • We even know what it's like sometimes to hurt others.
  • 00:00:13.120 --> 00:00:15.270
  • Well, today God wants to heal you everywhere you're hurting.
  • 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:19.090
  • He wants you to live beyond the pain of disappointment, beyond
  • 00:00:19.120 --> 00:00:23.070
  • the pain of physical sickness and disease.
  • 00:00:23.100 --> 00:00:25.280
  • He wants to heal you beyond whatever pain
  • 00:00:26.010 --> 00:00:28.110
  • that you've ever experienced.
  • 00:00:28.140 --> 00:00:30.160
  • We've all experienced pain.
  • 00:00:30.190 --> 00:00:32.130
  • Now we need to experience what life
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:34.060
  • could be like beyond the pain.
  • 00:00:34.090 --> 00:00:36.060
  • We need to be able to experience what
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:37.260
  • life can be like when we're healed.
  • 00:00:37.290 --> 00:00:39.280
  • God wants you healed emotionally, physically,
  • 00:00:40.010 --> 00:00:42.180
  • financially, relationally in every area of your life.
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:46.110
  • It's time to experience the healing power of God
  • 00:00:46.140 --> 00:00:49.170
  • in your life, in your mind, in your emotions,
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:52.050
  • in your body, in your spirit.
  • 00:00:52.080 --> 00:00:54.170
  • Sometimes we feel shipwrecked in our faith where we're
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:57.060
  • disappointed, but it is time to experience the healing
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:01:00.180
  • from the pain that God has for us.
  • 00:01:00.210 --> 00:01:03.200
  • He has healing for our pain.
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:05.240
  • He has deliverance for our suffering.
  • 00:01:05.270 --> 00:01:08.000
  • Are you ready to experience life beyond your pain?
  • 00:01:08.030 --> 00:01:11.020
  • Get ready and watch this.
  • 00:01:11.050 --> 00:01:12.290
  • We're gonna study the Bible one-on-one together.
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:15.110
  • God bless.
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:17.170
  • [music]
  • 00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:28.020
  • [music]
  • 00:01:28.050 --> 00:01:40.280
  • Gregory: Well, if there was ever a time for Christians to
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:47.040
  • walk in the fullness of God's will, concerning pain
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:49.290
  • and suffering and how to be healed, the time is now.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:52.290
  • The need's never been greater.
  • 00:01:53.020 --> 00:01:55.010
  • Just look around the world today.
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:57.010
  • You don't have to look very far. Open up your computer.
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:59.080
  • Watch the news on television.
  • 00:01:59.110 --> 00:02:01.050
  • You'll see that in every corner of this globe, every part of
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:03.170
  • this world, there is an overflow of pain and suffering,
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:06.170
  • enough to destroy a generation and break
  • 00:02:06.200 --> 00:02:09.020
  • the hearts of the previous generation.
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:11.090
  • Millions suffer from debilitating diseases and
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:13.240
  • sicknesses around the world.
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:15.260
  • A billion people today have no access to clean drinking water.
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:19.080
  • Two million people die each year from waterborne diseases alone.
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:23.160
  • Ninety percent of them are little children.
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:26.090
  • Fifteen million kids have been orphaned by AIDS.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:29.030
  • And the news is filled with reports of violence and abuse
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:31.250
  • and kidnapping and the horrors of war and misery.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:36.000
  • To all of that, consider the rising violence against
  • 00:02:36.030 --> 00:02:38.240
  • believers around the world, persecutions against Christians
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:42.200
  • that are happening all over the world.
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:44.290
  • We live in a broken world.
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:46.260
  • We live in a hurting world, and it's time for us
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:49.130
  • to realize we have the answer.
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:52.030
  • This world is trying to dull the pain that it feels
  • 00:02:52.060 --> 00:02:54.250
  • and the pain that it experiences.
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:57.180
  • The unfortunate reality is that too many people are trying to
  • 00:02:57.210 --> 00:03:00.180
  • cope with their pain without God's help,
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:03.170
  • and we just aren't designed to do it without him.
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:06.040
  • When it comes to healing emotional pain, so often people
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:09.250
  • turn to drugs, like I did, or alcohol or overeating
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:12.120
  • or smoking or gambling or various other ways
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:15.090
  • to temporarily numb the pain.
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:18.100
  • Nowadays, the most popular way to deal
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:20.180
  • with pain is picking up a prescription for it.
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:24.190
  • There's over 120 million prescriptions written each year
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:28.150
  • for antidepressants alone just in America,
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:32.100
  • and that's just treating emotional pain.
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:35.150
  • There are almost 100 million Americans suffering from chronic
  • 00:03:35.180 --> 00:03:38.140
  • or physical pain with millions of prescriptions written for
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:42.080
  • pain relievers, tranquilizers, sedatives.
  • 00:03:42.110 --> 00:03:45.070
  • And if you add it all up combined, that's one
  • 00:03:45.100 --> 00:03:48.060
  • prescription for every human being in America.
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:51.070
  • And we're doing everything with you can to stop the pain,
  • 00:03:51.100 --> 00:03:54.050
  • but it's just not working, and God knows that.
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:57.080
  • He has a better solution.
  • 00:03:57.110 --> 00:03:59.170
  • In fact, in the Bible, there are over 100 specific
  • 00:03:59.200 --> 00:04:02.240
  • mentions of the word "pain."
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:06.010
  • If you add in related words such as "suffering" or "hurt,"
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:09.200
  • then you have hundreds of references to pain.
  • 00:04:09.230 --> 00:04:12.140
  • God understands the suffering that people go through,
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:15.130
  • and he has an answer.
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:17.160
  • He knows what you're going through, and his solution isn't
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:19.210
  • to run from the pain or to dull it with something temporary.
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:23.100
  • The answer is to find the remedy in what Jesus did on the cross.
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:27.260
  • He himself bore our sins in his body, carried away
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:32.140
  • our diseases and our sicknesses.
  • 00:04:32.170 --> 00:04:34.230
  • And the Bible says, "By his stripes we were healed."
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:38.050
  • He bore or pain because he knows what it's like to hurt.
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:41.200
  • He felt every rejection you've ever felt.
  • 00:04:41.230 --> 00:04:44.100
  • He felt every temptation you ever felt.
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:46.220
  • He felt every wound you've ever had, and he took your pain in
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:51.080
  • mind, and by his wounds, we were healed.
  • 00:04:51.110 --> 00:04:55.000
  • "He was wounded for our transgressions,"
  • 00:04:55.030 --> 00:04:57.070
  • Isaiah tells us, "chastised for our peace,
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:04:59.260
  • and with his stripes we're healed."
  • 00:04:59.290 --> 00:05:02.190
  • We have a Savior that knows what it's like
  • 00:05:02.220 --> 00:05:04.150
  • to hurt and to feel pain.
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:06.160
  • The Bible says we don't have a high priest or a Savior that
  • 00:05:06.190 --> 00:05:08.220
  • doesn't understand or sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who
  • 00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:11.240
  • has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:15.110
  • He knows what it's like to be tempted.
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:17.290
  • He knows what you're going through when you suffer.
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:20.080
  • He knows what it's like to be betrayed.
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.120
  • He knows what it's like to be lied about.
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:24.130
  • He knows what it's like to be mocked,
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:26.190
  • to be rejected, to be despised, to be hated.
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:30.080
  • He knows pain, and he knows every bit that you've ever felt,
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:33.210
  • and he wants you to know that he took it upon himself,
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:37.080
  • and there's no reason for you to have it
  • 00:05:37.110 --> 00:05:39.230
  • and for him to have taken it too.
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:42.020
  • He took it so you could leave it.
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:44.080
  • He took it upon himself so you could take it off yourself and
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:47.040
  • lay it at the foot of the cross, and that's
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:49.240
  • exactly what's gonna happen today.
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:52.030
  • You know, too many times, we spend our lives running from
  • 00:05:52.060 --> 00:05:55.000
  • pain with the mistake and belief that we must
  • 00:05:55.030 --> 00:05:57.100
  • run from it because we can't endure it.
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:05:59.150
  • But listen, I want to tell you somethin'
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:02.110
  • very powerful that'll change your life.
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:04.240
  • You've already endured it.
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:07.040
  • But what you haven't done is experienced
  • 00:06:07.070 --> 00:06:09.150
  • what it's like to live beyond the pain.
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:12.030
  • And today we're gonna go beyond the pain.
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:14.190
  • We've already endured it. You've already felt it.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:17.240
  • The only reason anybody medicates pain
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:20.040
  • is because they feel the pain.
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:22.190
  • You've already felt the pain. You've already endured the pain.
  • 00:06:22.220 --> 00:06:24.170
  • Now it's time to feel the healing and to feel
  • 00:06:24.200 --> 00:06:27.100
  • what it's like to live beyond the pain.
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:30.000
  • It's time to let the pain of your past and the pain of your
  • 00:06:30.030 --> 00:06:32.180
  • present be left behind so that you can go beyond the walls of
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:35.240
  • your pain, beyond the limitations and really feel what
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:39.040
  • life it like to be healed inside and out.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:42.150
  • And when you do, you will become a vessel
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:45.080
  • of that healing power everywhere you go.
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:47.290
  • Aren't you ready to be healed and also
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:50.110
  • to extend that healing to others?
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:52.240
  • 'Cause the Bible says that we can lay hands
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:54.220
  • on the sick, and they'll recover.
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:06:56.240
  • God has empowered us and equipped us
  • 00:06:56.270 --> 00:06:59.090
  • to be healed and to bring healing.
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:02.060
  • And so I wanna study this beautiful picture of healing in
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:04.290
  • the Bible, the healing of pain in 1 Chronicles chapter 4.
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:08.290
  • And I want you to not only be healed of your pain but to be
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:13.060
  • able to multiply that healing to a hurting and broken world.
  • 00:07:13.090 --> 00:07:17.040
  • In 1 Chronicles chapter 4, verse 9, it says
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:20.260
  • that "Jabez was a more honorable man than his brothers,
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:24.230
  • and his mother called him Jabez because she said,
  • 00:07:24.260 --> 00:07:29.130
  • 'I bore him in pain.'"
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:33.030
  • She called him Jabez because his name means "pain"
  • 00:07:33.060 --> 00:07:37.000
  • because she gave birth to him in pain.
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:40.100
  • So he identified with his pain, but he didn't camp in his pain.
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:44.230
  • Though he was a victim of pain, he did not
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:47.160
  • remain a victim of his pain.
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:50.270
  • You see, there's a difference between
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.290
  • being victimized and being a victim.
  • 00:07:53.020 --> 00:07:56.110
  • Being victimized is when you feel pain at the hands of
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:59.110
  • somebody else or even at the hands of yourself, but being a
  • 00:07:59.140 --> 00:08:03.290
  • victim means that you have a mentality that your pain that's
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:08.190
  • been inflicted upon you and the victimization that you've
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:11.260
  • suffered will mark your life and define your forever.
  • 00:08:11.290 --> 00:08:15.200
  • That's what it means to be a victim.
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:18.030
  • You feel that whatever happened to you
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:20.010
  • is gonna have to define you.
  • 00:08:20.040 --> 00:08:22.060
  • To be victimized, we know what that's like.
  • 00:08:22.090 --> 00:08:24.290
  • To be attacked, we know what that's like.
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:27.180
  • But to remain a victim is a mind-set that excuses your life
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:31.290
  • and excuses yourself because you were victimized.
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:35.030
  • You end up defining yourself by what you were victimized by.
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:39.130
  • You define yourself by the abuse.
  • 00:08:39.160 --> 00:08:41.250
  • If you've been abused, you're like, "Oh, I was abused,
  • 00:08:41.280 --> 00:08:44.020
  • and I'll always feel this way."
  • 00:08:44.050 --> 00:08:46.060
  • You see, you define yourself by your hurt, you define yourself
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:48.080
  • by the betrayal, you define yourself by your weakness,
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:51.010
  • and then you remain in that condition because you
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:53.180
  • become a slave to the victimization.
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:57.190
  • But you are more than a conqueror, and you're either
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:09:02.220
  • gonna be more than a conqueror or be conquered by your pain.
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:06.030
  • It's gonna control your life, or you're gonna control it.
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:09.230
  • It's gonna make your choices, or you're gonna make your choices.
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:13.110
  • So we have to realize that, if we're gonna break out of our
  • 00:09:13.140 --> 00:09:16.070
  • pain, we have to make a choice.
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:18.250
  • This is the first secret to living beyond the pain.
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:21.090
  • We have to make a choice that we're no longer
  • 00:09:21.120 --> 00:09:23.140
  • gonna be defined by that pain.
  • 00:09:23.170 --> 00:09:26.140
  • And I wanna say this again: If you're going to break out of
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:29.050
  • your pain, you have to make a choice, a decision, today.
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:33.060
  • That's step one that you are no longer gonna be defined by it.
  • 00:09:33.090 --> 00:09:37.080
  • You're no longer gonna camp around it.
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:39.230
  • You're no longer going to get your identity from it.
  • 00:09:39.260 --> 00:09:42.240
  • We have to identify where we've allowed pain in our lives, where
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:47.030
  • others have brought pain into our lives, but we can't allow it
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:50.210
  • to draw a circle around us and keep us hemmed in.
  • 00:09:50.240 --> 00:09:54.020
  • This is what Jabez really excelled in.
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:56.230
  • He was born in pain. He was called "pain."
  • 00:09:56.260 --> 00:10:00.150
  • He was referred to as a pain.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:02.240
  • Maybe his mother said, "You've been a pain
  • 00:10:02.270 --> 00:10:04.260
  • in my neck all my life."
  • 00:10:04.290 --> 00:10:07.040
  • And he even brought pain to himself.
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:09.100
  • He brought pain to his mother.
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:11.040
  • He endured and knows what it's like to have experienced pain
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:13.100
  • and to have caused pain in other people's lives.
  • 00:10:13.130 --> 00:10:16.000
  • But he made a decision-- and we're gonna see
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:18.220
  • the decision he made here.
  • 00:10:18.250 --> 00:10:20.230
  • He made the decision he wasn't gonna stay that way.
  • 00:10:20.260 --> 00:10:23.000
  • He made a choice that he wasn't going
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:24.230
  • to remain in that condition.
  • 00:10:24.260 --> 00:10:26.270
  • And that's why it says in verse 10--watch this now:
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:29.240
  • "So Jabez called on the God of Israel."
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:33.020
  • So here we see what Jabez can to begin to break free.
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:36.280
  • He identified his pain.
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:39.200
  • He recognized it, but he did not let his pain confine him
  • 00:10:39.230 --> 00:10:43.040
  • or define him as you've heard me say many times.
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:46.170
  • But notice what he did.
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:49.070
  • He called on God when he was hurting.
  • 00:10:49.100 --> 00:10:51.250
  • Whenever you're hurting, call on God.
  • 00:10:51.280 --> 00:10:54.070
  • Whenever you're suffering, call on God.
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:55.230
  • Whenever you feel down, call on God.
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:57.270
  • Whenever you feel defined by your past, call on God.
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:11:00.240
  • Whenever you feel tempted to go backwards, call on God.
  • 00:11:00.270 --> 00:11:03.210
  • Whenever somebody has wronged you, call on God.
  • 00:11:03.240 --> 00:11:06.110
  • Whenever somebody has hurt you, call on God.
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:08.240
  • When you've caused hurt in your own life or caused it in
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.110
  • somebody else's life, call on God.
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:14.200
  • You see?
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:16.170
  • This is the difference between a victim and a victor.
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:19.180
  • A victim calls on others--now hear this.
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:23.010
  • A victim calls on others to sympathize with their pain, but
  • 00:11:23.040 --> 00:11:26.040
  • a victor calls on God to heal them of their pain.
  • 00:11:26.070 --> 00:11:30.170
  • I really want you to get this, and that's why
  • 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:33.040
  • I'm gonna say it again.
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:35.130
  • A victim calls on others to sympathize with their pain, but
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:39.140
  • a victor calls on God to heal them of their pain.
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:44.050
  • If we'll be honest with God about our pain and whatever
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:46.240
  • we feel, healing will come.
  • 00:11:46.270 --> 00:11:49.150
  • It'll begin to show up in your life, and it's
  • 00:11:49.180 --> 00:11:51.230
  • gonna show up beginning today.
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:54.050
  • So let's keep goin' in verse 10.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:56.120
  • Continuing in verse 10 of 1 Chronicles chapter 4, it says
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:59.060
  • "Jabez called upon God, saying 'Oh, that you
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:03.010
  • would bless me indeed!"
  • 00:12:03.040 --> 00:12:05.180
  • In verse 10, "Oh, that you would bless me!"
  • 00:12:05.210 --> 00:12:07.280
  • So he calls on God, which is who we need to call on when we feel
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:10.240
  • pain, and he said, "Lord, that you would bless me!"
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:14.160
  • Now, notice this: You're never gonna pray with power--and I
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:17.250
  • hope you'll hear what I'm saying--you're never gonna be
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:20.110
  • able to pray with power until you pray with pain.
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:24.220
  • And I wanna say that again.
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:26.270
  • You're never gonna pray with power until you pray with pain.
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:31.010
  • The Bible says in James chapter 5, verse 13,
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:34.250
  • "Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray."
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:38.020
  • When you're suffering, he says pray.
  • 00:12:38.050 --> 00:12:40.130
  • When you feel pain, he says, pray.
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:42.180
  • Anxiety is a signal to pray.
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.260
  • Worry is a signal to pray, and pain is a signal to pray.
  • 00:12:44.290 --> 00:12:48.080
  • It's not something you have to try to pretend isn't there.
  • 00:12:48.110 --> 00:12:51.020
  • You don't have to try to pretend that you're not hurting.
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:54.070
  • That pain is a signal to pray.
  • 00:12:54.100 --> 00:12:57.110
  • "I'm suffering.
  • 00:12:57.140 --> 00:12:59.050
  • I'm in pain, so I'm gonna pray, and I'm gonna ask
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:01.170
  • God to bless me, indeed."
  • 00:13:01.200 --> 00:13:03.240
  • Follow Jabez's example here.
  • 00:13:03.270 --> 00:13:06.090
  • And we're gonna see that he asks for four things after he decided
  • 00:13:06.120 --> 00:13:09.180
  • that he's not gonna put up with this pain anymore.
  • 00:13:09.210 --> 00:13:12.000
  • So number one, you've gotta decide.
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:13.260
  • You've gotta make a choice.
  • 00:13:13.290 --> 00:13:15.260
  • "I'm not puttin' up with this pain anymore."
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:17.260
  • We don't have to stay in our condition.
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:19.250
  • We have to choose that, though we've endured pain, though we
  • 00:13:19.280 --> 00:13:22.180
  • have felt pain, we're not gonna remain in our pain.
  • 00:13:22.210 --> 00:13:26.000
  • You see, God doesn't want you to settle for the pain that he
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:28.280
  • already paid for on the cross.
  • 00:13:29.010 --> 00:13:32.000
  • So have you made your mind up today?
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:34.160
  • Have you declared, "I'm not gonna settle."
  • 00:13:34.190 --> 00:13:36.260
  • In fact, declare that.
  • 00:13:36.290 --> 00:13:38.210
  • "I'm not gonna settle with my pain.
  • 00:13:38.240 --> 00:13:40.180
  • I'm not gonna put up with my pain anymore.
  • 00:13:40.210 --> 00:13:42.160
  • I'm not gonna let this pain stay in my life anymore."
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:45.120
  • When you start declaring that, you're gonna begin
  • 00:13:45.150 --> 00:13:48.210
  • to experience God's healing.
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:50.190
  • That doesn't mean that we're gonna be people
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:52.170
  • that never have to experience pain.
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:54.200
  • It means we never have to experience pain
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:56.280
  • without a remedy.
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:13:58.280
  • We never have to experience pain without God.
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:01.060
  • We never have to experience pain without healing.
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:04.130
  • Now, I mentioned to you a few moments ago, there are over
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:07.150
  • 100 verses in Scripture using the word "pain,"
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:11.010
  • but here's a more powerful truth.
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:13.280
  • There's over 200 verses in Scripture,
  • 00:14:14.010 --> 00:14:16.190
  • using the word "healing."
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:19.050
  • So, in other words, for every bit of pain you have, God has
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:22.020
  • twice as much healing, twice as much peace, twice as much joy,
  • 00:14:22.050 --> 00:14:27.090
  • twice as much power, twice as many remedies for whatever
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:31.100
  • you're suffering with because Jesus is our healer.
  • 00:14:31.130 --> 00:14:35.130
  • And Jabez teaches us that, no matter what you've gone through,
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:39.220
  • you can call on God.
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:42.090
  • You can ask him to bless you, indeed.
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:44.100
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:14:44.130 --> 00:14:46.090
  • He says, "Oh, that you would bless me, indeed!"
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:49.030
  • What does he mean by that?
  • 00:14:49.060 --> 00:14:51.190
  • He said that "I would no longer live a limited life."
  • 00:14:51.220 --> 00:14:54.110
  • To be cursed means to be hemmed in by the past, by your
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:57.230
  • weaknesses, by your shortcomings--that to be cursed
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:15:01.160
  • means to be controlled by your past.
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:04.180
  • That means--the word "blessing" means to be unlimited.
  • 00:15:04.210 --> 00:15:07.280
  • There are no more boundaries that can keep you limited
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:12.020
  • to your weaknesses or limited to your past
  • 00:15:12.050 --> 00:15:14.240
  • or limited to your pain.
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:16.290
  • To say, "Lord, bless me" is not about money although God can
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:20.180
  • certainly bless you with money.
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:23.090
  • But he's not limited to blessing you with just money because
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:26.100
  • sometimes the blessing we need is something money can't buy.
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:29.270
  • "Oh, that you would bless me, indeed!"
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:32.160
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:34.160
  • It means you and I will no longer be limited or confined
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:37.050
  • or defined by our past.
  • 00:15:37.080 --> 00:15:39.110
  • We no longer have a ceiling on our life and on
  • 00:15:39.140 --> 00:15:42.010
  • what God can do in our life.
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:44.130
  • God wants us to live a life without limits, to live a life
  • 00:15:44.160 --> 00:15:47.170
  • without a ceiling, to live a life without that pain anymore.
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:51.260
  • You might've been born into poverty, but you've been born
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:54.130
  • again into God's abundant prosperity.
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:57.030
  • You might've been born into sickness, but you've been born
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:59.200
  • again into healing and divine health.
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:02.140
  • You might've been born into the curse of heart disease or
  • 00:16:02.170 --> 00:16:05.160
  • diabetes, passed down from generation to generation, but
  • 00:16:05.190 --> 00:16:09.020
  • you've been born again into the blessing of Abraham and into the
  • 00:16:09.050 --> 00:16:12.010
  • blessing of all the promises of God.
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:14.270
  • Now, secondly, Jabez prays, and he says--and we're gonna--I'm
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:20.030
  • gonna teach you how to pray this, and I'm gonna walk you
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:22.170
  • through this and pray this with you every day
  • 00:16:22.200 --> 00:16:24.240
  • as long as we can commit together.
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:27.020
  • But secondly, he says, "And, Lord, enlarge my territory."
  • 00:16:27.050 --> 00:16:30.080
  • This means "Expand my impact.
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:33.110
  • Don't let me be limited anymore."
  • 00:16:33.140 --> 00:16:35.090
  • This doesn't just mean "enlarge my territory" in the sense of
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:37.140
  • more physical land, but "Give me more impact."
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:40.140
  • Success is one thing, and you know what?
  • 00:16:40.170 --> 00:16:43.280
  • Part of God's blessing is to give you success in every
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:46.150
  • endeavor that you're involved in.
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:48.220
  • That Word of God tells us that.
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:50.270
  • There is success that God promises.
  • 00:16:51.000 --> 00:16:53.020
  • "But that you would enlarge my territory--"
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:55.030
  • that means it's not just success, but it's impact.
  • 00:16:55.060 --> 00:16:58.130
  • Anyone can have success but have no impact.
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:02.190
  • Anyone can have success but have
  • 00:17:02.220 --> 00:17:05.240
  • no impact in other people's lives.
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:08.090
  • And what I want to ask you to ask God for is not only that God
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:12.150
  • would give you success, but that God will give you impact and
  • 00:17:12.180 --> 00:17:15.140
  • influence and what God does in your life
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:17.260
  • will spread to countless others.
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:20.170
  • Don't you want to impact the people you come in contact with?
  • 00:17:20.200 --> 00:17:23.280
  • When you come in contact with somebody who's hurting,
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:26.100
  • you want them to feel the presence of God.
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:28.150
  • When you say something to them, you want them to have heard from
  • 00:17:28.180 --> 00:17:30.220
  • God, that you've impacted their life, that you've left an
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:33.290
  • impression upon them, that when you come in contact with
  • 00:17:34.020 --> 00:17:36.290
  • somebody that you don't leave them
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:39.000
  • in the same condition that you found them.
  • 00:17:39.030 --> 00:17:41.070
  • You've not just had success in your own life, but
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:43.100
  • you've had impact and influence in somebody else's.
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:45.260
  • And then notice what he says.
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:48.150
  • The third part of Jabez's prayer is, "And, Lord,
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:51.190
  • that your hand would be with me."
  • 00:17:51.220 --> 00:17:54.010
  • Now, the hand of God is the authority of God.
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:57.080
  • It's the power of God. It's the provision of God.
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:18:02.120
  • It's the protection of God. It's the purpose of God.
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:06.080
  • It's the plan of God. That's the hand of God.
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:09.140
  • And the Bible says to humble ourselves under the mighty hand
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:12.070
  • of God, and he will exalt us.
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.200
  • So often we feel that we need to exalt ourselves, but we feel
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:17.220
  • inferior, so we try to appear superior.
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:20.280
  • Sometimes we feel slighted, so we end up
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:23.180
  • trying to slight somebody else.
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:25.240
  • We feel hurt, so we end up hurting somebody else.
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.100
  • We feel excluded or ignored, so we get bitter, or we get mad,
  • 00:18:28.130 --> 00:18:31.270
  • or we try to prove that we're better than somebody else.
  • 00:18:32.000 --> 00:18:34.290
  • And what we need to realize is we don't need
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:37.040
  • to be looking for man's promotion.
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:39.230
  • We don't need to be looking for man's exaltation.
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:42.110
  • We simply need to be humbling ourselves under the mighty hand
  • 00:18:42.140 --> 00:18:45.260
  • of God, and he will exalt us, "That your hand would be with
  • 00:18:45.290 --> 00:18:49.030
  • me, that your hand would lift me up."
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:51.200
  • The Bible says that faith doesn't work when we
  • 00:18:51.230 --> 00:18:54.020
  • seek the praise of man.
  • 00:18:54.050 --> 00:18:56.020
  • Our faith only works when we seek the praise of God.
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:58.280
  • Our part is only to humble ourselves and to receive
  • 00:18:59.010 --> 00:19:02.250
  • God's hand to exalt us in due time.
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:06.050
  • Don't seek to exalt yourself.
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:09.030
  • And Jabez is praying, "God, let your hand be upon me."
  • 00:19:09.060 --> 00:19:11.250
  • In other words, I submit to your protection,
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.250
  • your provision, your authority, your power.
  • 00:19:14.280 --> 00:19:17.190
  • And I submit to your process in my life, and I know
  • 00:19:17.220 --> 00:19:20.120
  • you'll raise me up at the right time."
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:22.270
  • You know, so many people fail in life, not because they got too
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:25.110
  • old but because, when they got to a certain point,
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:28.280
  • they thought God couldn't do it anymore,
  • 00:19:29.010 --> 00:19:31.240
  • that maybe they thought it's too late.
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:34.220
  • And here's the beautiful thing. It's never too late.
  • 00:19:34.250 --> 00:19:38.040
  • It's not over.
  • 00:19:38.070 --> 00:19:40.100
  • That's what resurrection power is all about
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.070
  • if you'll humble yourself.
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:44.140
  • It doesn't matter if you're 70, 80, or 90 years old, humble
  • 00:19:44.170 --> 00:19:47.010
  • yourself, and God can rearrange your history, your present,
  • 00:19:47.040 --> 00:19:50.210
  • and your future if you just trust him and humble yourself
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:54.060
  • under his mighty hand.
  • 00:19:54.090 --> 00:19:55.280
  • He can do in 1 day what you couldn't do in 10 years.
  • 00:19:56.010 --> 00:19:59.160
  • And I've looked at my life, and I've said,
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:02.020
  • "Lord, what I try to do is nothing.
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:04.180
  • I try and I try, and I've realized, Lord, look at how
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:08.150
  • I try and I try and I try."
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:11.010
  • And God says, "That's right because you need to trust
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:13.080
  • and trust and trust, and then I'll do it."
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.160
  • That's what God says.
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:18.280
  • Even when it seems like you're not makin' any progress,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:21.020
  • remember, visible opposition is producing invisible progress.
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:26.170
  • Visible opposition, what you see around you,
  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:29.140
  • is producing invisible progress.
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:32.010
  • You're making progress that you don't even see right now.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:34.150
  • So hang in there and trust, trust, trust.
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:38.130
  • You see, we can't remove the burdens of this world,
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:42.110
  • of this broken world, in our own ability.
  • 00:20:42.140 --> 00:20:45.040
  • We need the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:47.150
  • We need the words of wisdom and the words of knowledge
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:49.240
  • and the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:49.270 --> 00:20:52.050
  • We need the discerning of spirits,
  • 00:20:52.080 --> 00:20:53.220
  • the wisdom to be led by the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:56.070
  • Man orders his steps but--"Man plans his ways, the Bible
  • 00:20:56.100 --> 00:21:00.280
  • actually says, but God orders his steps."
  • 00:21:01.010 --> 00:21:03.240
  • We need to trust that God will order our steps today that God
  • 00:21:03.270 --> 00:21:06.010
  • will go before us, and he will change things in front of us and
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:09.070
  • rearrange things as we trust and trust and trust.
  • 00:21:09.100 --> 00:21:12.260
  • That's the prayer, "Lord, that your hand would be upon me."
  • 00:21:12.290 --> 00:21:16.190
  • And then the last part of his prayer in 1 Chronicles chapter
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:20.140
  • 4, verse 10, lastly, I really want you to hear this because he
  • 00:21:20.170 --> 00:21:24.140
  • says that you would keep me from evil
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:27.210
  • that I might not cause pain.
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:30.070
  • You see, when you rise up with the desire to say, "God use me
  • 00:21:30.100 --> 00:21:32.180
  • and make me a person who brings healing to this generation
  • 00:21:32.210 --> 00:21:35.240
  • rather than pain," then not only will you see healing in your own
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:39.270
  • life because, what you make happen for others, God will make
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:42.280
  • happen for you, but you will see healing in other people's lives.
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:47.250
  • And there's nothing like blessing somebody else, being
  • 00:21:47.280 --> 00:21:50.280
  • blessed to be a blessing, being healed to be a healer.
  • 00:21:51.010 --> 00:21:54.030
  • God created you to bring the healing hand of Jesus Christ
  • 00:21:54.060 --> 00:21:58.220
  • into the lives of others around you and to become the best
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:22:02.030
  • version of yourself, not to remain in pain and not to let
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:05.080
  • this world writhe in pain, but to be a part
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:08.090
  • of the healing touch of this world.
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:11.040
  • When we pray like Jabez prayed, our hope is not self-centered,
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:14.250
  • but by being who God wants us to be by receiving that blessing,
  • 00:22:14.280 --> 00:22:19.040
  • by God enlarging us, by God's hand being with us and
  • 00:22:19.070 --> 00:22:22.100
  • delivering us from evil, we're curing the pains of this world,
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:26.030
  • and we're becoming a vessel to continue the healing ministry
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:29.200
  • of Jesus Christ in this world.
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:32.070
  • He came to preach, teach, and heal.
  • 00:22:32.100 --> 00:22:34.220
  • He died for our sins.
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:36.130
  • He rose from the dead, and by his stripes, this world can stop
  • 00:22:36.160 --> 00:22:39.050
  • hurting and start really living, and you can stop
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:42.020
  • hurting and start really living.
