  • and getting you on the right path.
  • 00:00:10.060 --> 00:00:12.190
  • The reason why so many people are not on the right path in
  • 00:00:12.200 --> 00:00:16.030
  • their life is because their soul is so messed up
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:19.050
  • and so they're on this path, then they're on that path,
  • 00:00:19.060 --> 00:00:21.020
  • and they can never be on the right path because
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:24.050
  • their thinking isn't right.
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:25.220
  • If your thinking is right, your path is gonna end up right.

  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:56.160
  • Gregory: Hi, Greg Dickow here and I wanna share with you how
  • 00:00:57.210 --> 00:00:59.180
  • God wants to restore your soul and when he restores your soul
  • 00:00:59.190 --> 00:01:03.130
  • he's gonna restore everything in your life.
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:06.010
  • You see, the secret to the restoration of your health
  • 00:01:06.020 --> 00:01:08.270
  • and the restoration of your relationships and God restoring
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:11.270
  • your finances and your joy and your peace
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:15.050
  • and every good thing you desire in life, it starts with
  • 00:01:15.060 --> 00:01:17.200
  • the restoration of your soul.
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:20.120
  • I'm gonna take you through the simple steps, one by one,
  • 00:01:20.130 --> 00:01:24.050
  • how to see God restore your soul
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:26.030
  • and then he's gonna restore everything.
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:28.090
  • Because great thoughts produce a great life.
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:31.020
  • Right thinking produces right living.
  • 00:01:31.030 --> 00:01:33.170
  • The best thoughts produce the best life.
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:36.230
  • And God wants you to have the best.
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:39.020
  • That's why he's given us the Word of God
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:40.250
  • and that's why he's given us these simple steps.
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:42.250
  • I'm gonna take you through them.
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.160
  • The simplest passage of Scripture you've ever read
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:47.020
  • and the most powerful passage of Scripture you've ever read.
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:50.000
  • Check this out.
  • 00:01:50.010 --> 00:01:52.080
  • Gregory: Go over to Psalm 23.
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:55.260
  • Let me show you something amazing.
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:57.070
  • Psalm 23, verse 1.
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:58.290
  • Anybody ever heard this verse before?
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:02.220
  • The Lord is my?
  • 00:02:02.230 --> 00:02:05.000
  • Wait, who's your shepherd?
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:07.000
  • The Lord is--can you honestly say the Lord is your shepherd?
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:10.050
  • It's not a trick question.
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:11.260
  • Anybody here believe the Lord is your shepherd?
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:13.250
  • I do. The Lord is my shepherd.
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:15.270
  • Listen, what he's about to show us is something amazing.
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:18.280
  • The Lord, our shepherd, causes us to not be in want anymore.
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:25.280
  • He said, "I shall not want."
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:27.200
  • He's not saying, "I shall not have any desires
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:29.250
  • when the Lord is my shepherd."
  • 00:02:29.260 --> 00:02:31.150
  • He's saying when the Lord is your shepherd you
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:33.280
  • will not lack any good thing.
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:36.230
  • You will not be in want, is what this is literally translated as.
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:41.020
  • When the Lord is your shepherd you will not be in want.
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:45.090
  • You will not be lacking what you need.
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:48.030
  • Now, watch this. He's two things here.
  • 00:02:48.040 --> 00:02:51.010
  • David is saying God is two things to him here.
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:54.140
  • What is he saying?
  • 00:02:54.150 --> 00:02:55.260
  • He's saying the Lord-- he's saying,
  • 00:02:55.270 --> 00:02:57.140
  • "He's my Lord and he's my shepherd."
  • 00:02:57.150 --> 00:03:00.060
  • Now, a Lord does something a little differently
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:03.110
  • than what a shepherd does.
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:05.100
  • A shepherd has a function and a Lord has a function.
  • 00:03:05.110 --> 00:03:08.090
  • Now, he tells us what the function is.
  • 00:03:08.100 --> 00:03:10.200
  • Maybe you've never--you probably have never read this Psalm
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:13.120
  • quite in this way before but that's why we're here together,
  • 00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:16.210
  • to be planted in God's Word.
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:18.140
  • To be planted in God's house so we can understand God's Word
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:21.060
  • better and we can experience the renewing of our mind that
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:24.000
  • will transform us into God's perfect will and transform us
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:29.040
  • into the beautiful butterfly that we discussed
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:31.240
  • last time we were together on this.
  • 00:03:31.250 --> 00:03:33.180
  • Now, so what does the Lord do and what does the shepherd do?
  • 00:03:33.190 --> 00:03:37.220
  • What does God do as our Lord and what does God do
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:40.110
  • as our shepherd?
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:42.010
  • Verse 2 explains it, "He makes me lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:48.010
  • He leads me beside the still waters."
  • 00:03:48.020 --> 00:03:51.180
  • Now, he's describing here the two functions of Jesus
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:55.220
  • in our lives in this chapter.
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:58.280
  • Function number one is he is Lord.
  • 00:03:58.290 --> 00:04:01.170
  • Function number two is he is shepherd, right?
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:05.050
  • The Lord is my shepherd. He's both Lord and shepherd.
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:07.290
  • Can you say amen?
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.280
  • Just wanna make sure we're on the same page.
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:11.150
  • So he is both Lord and shepherd.
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:13.050
  • So what does the Lord do?
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:14.250
  • "He makes me lie down in green pastures."
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:17.200
  • You see, Lord represents authority so when he's Lord,
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:22.030
  • there are some things he's gonna make us do.
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:24.050
  • There are some things he's gonna tell us to do that we
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:26.120
  • don't wanna do so he's gotta persuade us.
  • 00:04:26.130 --> 00:04:29.180
  • There's persuasion in this Word.
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:31.190
  • "He makes me lie down in green pastures."
  • 00:04:31.200 --> 00:04:34.250
  • How many know that sometimes your flesh wants to go one way
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:39.070
  • but your spirit is telling you something else?
  • 00:04:39.080 --> 00:04:41.290
  • Your emotions want to take you one way but you know
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:44.210
  • God's Word is telling you something else.
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:47.080
  • But if Jesus is your Lord, then you gotta let him make you
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:51.110
  • lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:53.200
  • He's not making you do something bad.
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:56.250
  • He's not making you even do something--
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:59.220
  • he's not making you behave a certain way.
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:02.030
  • He's not making you stop your bad behavior.
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:04.220
  • What he's doing is making you lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:09.210
  • Now, this is what the Lord does.
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:12.140
  • He leads or, excuse me, he makes us lie down
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:15.170
  • 'cause we don't always like to lie down.
  • 00:05:15.180 --> 00:05:17.170
  • We don't always like to come and sit down.
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.080
  • We don't always like to come and sit in church.
  • 00:05:19.090 --> 00:05:21.140
  • But the church is the green pastures.
  • 00:05:21.150 --> 00:05:23.270
  • Think about it.
  • 00:05:23.280 --> 00:05:25.200
  • The--what--where a shepherd takes a sheep,
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:28.110
  • a sheep goes into the green pastures to feed on the grass.
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:32.200
  • Well, God has brought you here to church today.
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:35.290
  • This is the green pastures where you are feeding on the green
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:39.150
  • grass of God's Word and God's nourishment
  • 00:05:39.160 --> 00:05:43.160
  • and God's spiritual nutrition.
  • 00:05:43.170 --> 00:05:45.120
  • Can you say amen to that?
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:49.070
  • As Lord, he says, "You've gotta be in my church."
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:52.270
  • Jesus is saying, "You gotta get connected to my church
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:55.120
  • because my church is the green pastures.
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:57.210
  • This is where you're going to be fed the green Word of God."
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:06:04.270
  • But then, as a shepherd, he leads me.
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:09.030
  • So, as a Lord, he makes me.
  • 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:11.180
  • How many know you can't say, "No, Lord"?
  • 00:06:11.190 --> 00:06:16.250
  • Remember there used to be a song back in the '80s or '90s.
  • 00:06:16.260 --> 00:06:18.240
  • It went...
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:20.160
  • You are Lord, you are Lord.
  • 00:06:20.170 --> 00:06:23.050
  • You are risen from the dead and you are Lord.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:25.140
  • Anybody remember that? Not quite like that, right?
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:28.040
  • You don't remember it quite like that.
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:31.170
  • But many Christians are gonna sing that,
  • 00:06:31.180 --> 00:06:33.290
  • "You are Lord, you are Lord."
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.230
  • But then the next verse is gonna be, "God says,
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:37.230
  • 'And I want you to forgive that person.'"
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:40.180
  • No, I won't. No, I won't.
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:44.210
  • Wait, I thought you just said, "He is Lord."
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:47.130
  • If he's Lord, how do you say, "No," to the Lord?
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:51.020
  • And then he says, "Get planted in the church."
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:53.020
  • And you're like...
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:54.140
  • No, I won't. No, I won't.
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:56.100
  • "Tithe, give the first tenth of your income to me," God says.
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:59.100
  • No, I won't. No, I won't.
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.090
  • We say he is Lord but then he tells us to do something,
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:03.190
  • we're like, "No, no, no, no, no."
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:05.040
  • Well, if he's Lord, say yes, right?
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:09.200
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:07:09.210 --> 00:07:11.070
  • Say yes to him if he's your Lord.
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:13.000
  • But as our shepherd, he leads us.
  • 00:07:13.010 --> 00:07:16.230
  • As our Lord, he tells us and makes us.
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:21.060
  • But as our shepherd, he leads us.
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:23.280
  • And where does he lead us? Beside still waters.
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.150
  • Now, what was the importance of still waters?
  • 00:07:26.160 --> 00:07:29.150
  • Still waters are what cause you to be able
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:33.090
  • to look into the water.
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:35.290
  • If it's still water, then it causes you
  • 00:07:36.000 --> 00:07:39.060
  • to see your reflection.
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:40.240
  • You see, if it's muddy water, then you're not gonna
  • 00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:44.040
  • see your reflection.
  • 00:07:44.050 --> 00:07:45.270
  • If it's rippling water, you're not gonna see your reflection.
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:50.010
  • But if it's still waters, you look in it
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:53.080
  • and you're, like, "Whoa!
  • 00:07:53.090 --> 00:07:55.050
  • That's a reflection of who I really am."
  • 00:07:55.060 --> 00:07:58.060
  • So what are the still waters?
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:08:00.070
  • The green pastures is the church where God brings us to to feed
  • 00:08:00.080 --> 00:08:03.220
  • us, but the still waters is the Bible.
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:06.190
  • The Word of God, which is the reflection
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:09.110
  • of what you really look like.
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:11.120
  • Once--what we have to do is we have to settle ourselves
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:14.060
  • and we have to realize that the Bible--
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:16.150
  • what does the Bible say in Psalm 119?
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:19.030
  • "Thy Word, O Lord, is settled forever in heaven."
  • 00:08:19.040 --> 00:08:25.050
  • The Word of God has to be settled to you.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:27.100
  • It's gotta be settled that this Bible is the Word of God.
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:30.200
  • Because once it is settled in your mind and heart that the
  • 00:08:30.210 --> 00:08:34.010
  • Bible is the Word of God, now you have still waters.
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:37.240
  • So when you look into it, it tells you what you really are.
  • 00:08:37.250 --> 00:08:42.290
  • It reveals to you your true identity.
  • 00:08:43.000 --> 00:08:45.190
  • You see, no matter what my emotions tell me,
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:48.180
  • God's Word says that I'm more than a conqueror.
  • 00:08:48.190 --> 00:08:52.060
  • No matter what my experience tells me, when I've failed
  • 00:08:52.070 --> 00:08:55.020
  • and I've blown it and I've messed up, but God says
  • 00:08:55.030 --> 00:08:57.140
  • I'm the head and not the tail.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:59.080
  • I'm above only and not beneath.
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:01.010
  • And you have to make up your mind do you--will you let Jesus
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:06.090
  • make you lie down in green pastures, even when you don't
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:09.070
  • feel like coming to church, even if we get a little cold or a
  • 00:09:09.080 --> 00:09:11.290
  • little--few snowflakes occur, and all these things that keep
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:14.280
  • us or we sleep in and we were tired or we have all these
  • 00:09:14.290 --> 00:09:17.160
  • reasons why we're not led to green pastures.
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:20.060
  • I'm going somewhere with this, don't get me wrong.
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.150
  • I'm taking you somewhere here. Are you ready?
  • 00:09:22.160 --> 00:09:25.060
  • And if he's your Lord, let him make you lie down.
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:28.230
  • Are you gonna let him make you lie down in green pastures
  • 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:31.080
  • and are you gonna let him lead you to the still waters
  • 00:09:31.090 --> 00:09:35.120
  • where you can see your reflection?
  • 00:09:35.130 --> 00:09:37.100
  • You remember in the movie or in the Disney movie or program,
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:41.120
  • "Snow White," book, "Snow White," the witch says,
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:45.140
  • "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?"
  • 00:09:45.150 --> 00:09:52.230
  • I like to use that poem for how I look into my bible.
  • 00:09:52.240 --> 00:09:57.090
  • And I say, "Mirror, mirror, in this book,
  • 00:09:57.100 --> 00:10:00.280
  • tell me how I really look."
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:05.070
  • The Bible is the mirror.
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:08.180
  • The Bible is the mirror of your new creation realities.
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:16.150
  • The new you.
  • 00:10:16.160 --> 00:10:18.100
  • The Bible is a picture of the real you.
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:21.010
  • The devil's trying to tell you,
  • 00:10:21.020 --> 00:10:22.250
  • "You'll never amount to anything.
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:24.180
  • You'll never be much."
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:26.000
  • But God says, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made."
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:28.180
  • The devil says, "You're a loser," but God says,
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:31.140
  • "You're more than a conqueror."
  • 00:10:31.150 --> 00:10:33.070
  • The devil says, "You can't do this.
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:35.020
  • You can't do that."
  • 00:10:35.030 --> 00:10:36.140
  • But God's Word says, "I can do all things through Christ
  • 00:10:36.150 --> 00:10:38.280
  • which strengthens me."
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:40.180
  • The devil says, "You'll never have enough.
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:43.030
  • Your money's gonna run out. You'll never figure this out."
  • 00:10:43.040 --> 00:10:46.030
  • But God says--God's Word says, "My God shall supply all your
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:49.260
  • need according to his riches in glory."
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:52.150
  • So you see, you gotta let him make you lie down
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:55.160
  • by the green pastures and you gotta let him lead you
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:58.200
  • beside the still waters.
  • 00:10:58.210 --> 00:11:00.230
  • When this Word says something, I'm not arguing with it.
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:03.150
  • I'm not rippling it.
  • 00:11:03.160 --> 00:11:05.060
  • I'm not muddying it with my opinion.
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:07.040
  • I'm gonna let it be the still waters of who I really am,
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:09.170
  • and when I look in it, I'm going to identify
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:12.010
  • the true me inside.
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:14.270
  • The real me. This is the real you.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:19.000
  • "Why do you say--why is it so important?
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.250
  • Come on, Pastor, we read Psalm 23
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:23.080
  • when we were 4 years old.
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:24.260
  • What are you doing telling us about Psalm 23?
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:26.160
  • Why are you preaching out of Psalm 23?"
  • 00:11:26.170 --> 00:11:28.120
  • I remember preaching out of Psalm 23 many years ago
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:31.170
  • and some fellow preacher said to me,
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:33.090
  • "Well, what are you preaching on in the next service?"
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:36.290
  • And I said, "Psalm 23."
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.180
  • He's, like, "Psshh! Psalm 23?
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:40.230
  • Everybody knows Psalm 23.
  • 00:11:40.240 --> 00:11:42.170
  • Why would you preach on Psalm 23?
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:44.080
  • Don't you know everybody knows Psalm 23?
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:45.260
  • Why are you preaching on Psalm--"
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:47.230
  • And he's mocking me for preaching on Psalm 23
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:49.250
  • but most people read Psalm 23 and they skip over it because
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:54.000
  • they've been told they already know it but they really aren't
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:56.140
  • follow--nobody ever told you what I just told you
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.230
  • about Psalm 23, unless you were in the first service.
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:04.010
  • 'Cause that's the first time I ever thought it that way.
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:06.290
  • Look at verse 3. Watch what happens.
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:08.270
  • Wait now. Go back to verse 2.
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:14.000
  • Jesus, as Lord, makes you lie down in green pastures.
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:18.160
  • Do whether you feel like it or not, amen?
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:21.050
  • Show up for church whether you feel like it or not.
  • 00:12:21.060 --> 00:12:23.100
  • Clear your calendar whether you're working or not and say,
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:25.240
  • "Man, I'm going to church."
  • 00:12:25.250 --> 00:12:28.060
  • I'm not saying, "Skip work."
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:29.240
  • I'm just saying, "Rearrange your schedule."
  • 00:12:29.250 --> 00:12:32.290
  • Get in the house of God.
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:35.090
  • And then he leads you beside still waters.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:36.290
  • Oh, this is who I am. Oh, this is who I am.
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:38.290
  • The Bible is not to be read as a book of judgment
  • 00:12:39.000 --> 00:12:42.090
  • for your behavior.
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:44.020
  • The Bible is to be read as a description
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:45.290
  • of who you really are.
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:48.170
  • This is the new you. This is the new you.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:51.170
  • He leads me beside the still waters.
  • 00:12:51.180 --> 00:12:54.080
  • Then what happens?
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:56.000
  • Look at the progression of what happens.
  • 00:12:56.010 --> 00:12:59.000
  • Verse 3.
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:00.190
  • This psalm is written in a progressive way,
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:04.050
  • meaning one verse leads to the next.
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:07.290
  • He says, "As a result of sitting beside the green pastures
  • 00:13:08.000 --> 00:13:11.190
  • and being at the still waters, he restores my soul."
  • 00:13:11.200 --> 00:13:18.120
  • And when your soul is restored,
  • 00:13:18.130 --> 00:13:20.230
  • everything in your life begins to get restored.
  • 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:23.190
  • Remember, there is one thing that we have total control over,
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:29.080
  • more than anything else, and that is our thought life.
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:32.200
  • There's a--you can't control what your husband
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:36.080
  • does all the time.
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:38.010
  • You can't control what your wife does all the time.
  • 00:13:38.020 --> 00:13:40.050
  • Come on, help me now.
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:41.240
  • You can't control what people do to you all the time,
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:44.100
  • but you can control your thought life.
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:46.250
  • How many know--how many have some relatives
  • 00:13:46.260 --> 00:13:48.230
  • that you don't like being around sometime?
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:50.080
  • Don't raise your hand.
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:54.120
  • You know, there are some people that are in our lives
  • 00:13:54.130 --> 00:13:57.120
  • you can't get them out of your life
  • 00:13:57.130 --> 00:13:59.150
  • but you know what you can do?
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:01.060
  • You can get 'em out of your head.
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:03.280
  • You can't get 'em out of your life but you can
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:05.270
  • get 'em out of your head.
  • 00:14:05.280 --> 00:14:07.090
  • In other words, you're no longer worried about what they think.
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:09.210
  • You're no longer affected by their jabs and their needling
  • 00:14:09.220 --> 00:14:12.150
  • words that they say to you.
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.050
  • You're no longer giving them the kind of power and control
  • 00:14:14.060 --> 00:14:16.150
  • to determine your happiness.
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:17.250
  • You might not be able to get 'em out of your life but you
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:20.050
  • can get 'em out of your head.
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:21.170
  • The problem is we have to realize something,
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:23.290
  • that we have power over our thought life.
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:26.180
  • We have control over our thought life.
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:28.210
  • You can't control every thought that knocks on your door
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:32.250
  • but you certainly can control which thoughts
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:35.000
  • you allow in, okay?
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:38.020
  • We have to understand this.
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:39.200
  • And look at what happens in Psalm 23.
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:41.140
  • "He restores my soul."
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:43.110
  • So now, as your soul is restored,
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:46.060
  • and where does it get restored?
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:47.250
  • When you're in the green pastures.
  • 00:14:47.260 --> 00:14:49.150
  • When you're beside the still waters, your soul gets restored.
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:54.090
  • And then what happens? Whoa, then he leads me.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:57.260
  • It's progressive. Remember, it's progressive.
  • 00:14:57.270 --> 00:14:59.260
  • "Then he leads me beside still water--" or, excuse me,
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:02.180
  • "he leads me in the paths of righteousness
  • 00:15:02.190 --> 00:15:04.090
  • for his name's sake."
  • 00:15:04.100 --> 00:15:06.010
  • So what is--in this context,
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:08.170
  • righteousness means making the right choices.
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:12.290
  • So when your soul is restored, as your mind is renewed,
  • 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:18.160
  • as God heals the way of thinking
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:20.290
  • that has been corrupted by your upbringing
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:23.210
  • or by other people's opinions or by your past
  • 00:15:23.220 --> 00:15:26.010
  • experiences, as your mind is restored, as your soul is
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:31.040
  • renewed, then God leads you in making the right decisions
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:37.130
  • and getting you on the right path.
  • 00:15:37.140 --> 00:15:40.020
  • You end up on the right path
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:42.110
  • because your soul has been restored.
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:45.090
  • The reason why so many people are not on the right path in
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:48.150
  • their life is because their soul is so messed up and so they're
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:52.050
  • on this path, then they're on that path, and they can never be
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:54.150
  • on the right path because their thinking isn't right.
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:58.070
  • If your thinking is right, your path is gonna end up right.
  • 00:15:58.080 --> 00:16:03.270
  • Then look at what happens in verse 4.
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.220
  • Again, this is all progressive.
  • 00:16:05.230 --> 00:16:07.250
  • "Then I walk through--yea, though I walk through
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:09.250
  • the valley of the shadow of death."
  • 00:16:09.260 --> 00:16:11.080
  • Wait a minute.
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:12.210
  • A lot of Christians are walking through the valley
  • 00:16:12.220 --> 00:16:14.220
  • of the shadow of death and they are fearing evil.
  • 00:16:14.230 --> 00:16:18.200
  • So how can he say, "Yea, though I walk through the valley
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:21.060
  • of the shadow of death, I fear no evil"?
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:23.070
  • The reason he can say this is because he is including this
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:26.260
  • progressive process that takes place in our lives.
  • 00:16:26.270 --> 00:16:31.030
  • None of these verses happen on their own without each other.
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:36.050
  • All of these verses need each other to lead to this life where
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:40.290
  • you can walk through the valley of the shadow of death
  • 00:16:41.000 --> 00:16:43.080
  • and fear no evil.
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:46.110
  • Because a broken soul, a wrong--wrong mind-sets
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:53.120
  • and wrong ways of thinking lead to fear.
  • 00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:57.220
  • When your soul is restored, when your mind is renewed,
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:17:01.210
  • when your thought life is in alignment with God's thoughts,
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:05.140
  • there's no room for fear.
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:07.260
  • You see, why do people get afraid in their finances?
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:12.130
  • Is it because they're so evil or they make such bad decisions?
  • 00:17:12.140 --> 00:17:16.290
  • They might make bad decisions
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:18.200
  • but that's not why they're afraid.
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:20.060
  • 'Cause I've made bad decisions but I'm not afraid.
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:22.050
  • I've taken risks but I'm not afraid, why?
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:24.220
  • Because I believe a verse in the Bible that has to do
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:28.210
  • with my finances.
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:30.140
  • Philippians 4:19, "My God shall supply all my need,"
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:35.010
  • all my needs, "according to his riches in glory."
  • 00:17:35.020 --> 00:17:37.080
  • Does anybody know that verse? Three of us.
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:39.210
  • What's the matter with the rest of us?
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:42.030
  • You know that. We all know that verse, right?
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:44.200
  • But why is that so important?
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:47.080
  • Because if you truly believe that verse, then you are not
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:52.070
  • afraid of what's going on around you,
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:55.160
  • because no matter what your need is,
  • 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:58.070
  • you believe your God is gonna supply your need.
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:18:03.210
  • So fear goes when your thinking is right.
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:08.270
  • Right thinking produces right living.
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:11.060
  • Right believing produces right living.
  • 00:18:11.070 --> 00:18:14.220
  • I'll fear no evil for you are with me.
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:16.160
  • I know you're with me. I know you're with me.
  • 00:18:16.170 --> 00:18:19.150
  • The devil is telling me God left me.
  • 00:18:19.160 --> 00:18:22.060
  • Has anybody ever heard that voice telling you
  • 00:18:22.070 --> 00:18:24.170
  • God has left you, God has departed from you?
  • 00:18:24.180 --> 00:18:27.000
  • That causes fear.
  • 00:18:27.010 --> 00:18:28.230
  • But when you believe, God's Word says,
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:32.060
  • "He'll never leave me or forsake me," then guess what?
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:35.100
  • I am not afraid because God is with me.
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:39.090
  • And even when I blow it and even when I mess up and even
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:42.160
  • when I fall and even when I falter, God doesn't leave me
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:46.160
  • 'cause the Bible says, "For you are with me."
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:50.120
  • And if I--if my thinking is right, I believe God is with me.
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:53.290
  • Even though my actions were wrong, I really blew it here
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:57.130
  • or I blew it there, but my thinking is right,
  • 00:18:57.140 --> 00:18:59.290
  • God is with me, then if I believe what God's Word says,
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:04.020
  • my soul gets restored, and as my soul gets restored,
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:07.170
  • he leads me down the right paths
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:10.090
  • and I'm no longer making the wrong decisions.
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:14.110
  • This is how God does things.
  • 00:19:14.120 --> 00:19:16.290
  • Verse 5, he goes on to say, "You prepare a table before me
  • 00:19:17.000 --> 00:19:21.100
  • in the presence of my enemies."
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:23.130
  • In other words, just because you have things that are against
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:26.110
  • you, doesn't mean that you give up your joy.
  • 00:19:26.120 --> 00:19:30.010
  • He says, "You prepare a table for me."
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:31.260
  • A table is all about celebration.
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:33.200
  • A table is all about rejoicing.
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:35.070
  • A table is all about the right company.
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:37.050
  • A table is all about being with the right people.
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:39.060
  • A table is all about sitting down and celebrating
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:42.080
  • and sitting down and enjoying your meal and sitting down
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:45.270
  • and knowing that you're at peace.
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:48.040
  • Even though you have enemies, you're not afraid of your
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:51.180
  • enemies because you know that God's presence is with you.
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:56.000
  • You see, that right thinking produces right living.
  • 00:19:56.010 --> 00:20:00.160
  • Then "You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows."
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:05.010
  • As your thinking overflows with the goodness of God,
  • 00:20:05.020 --> 00:20:11.150
  • your life will overflow with the goodness of God.
  • 00:20:11.160 --> 00:20:15.130
  • And verse 6 says because your thinking is right
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:17.290
  • and your soul has been restored,
  • 00:20:18.000 --> 00:20:20.110
  • "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
  • 00:20:20.120 --> 00:20:25.110
  • all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:28.170
  • of the Lord forever."
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:30.080
  • Why is it that David can say, "Surely"?
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:33.260
  • He's saying, "Without doubt, goodness and mercy
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:37.090
  • is gonna follow me all the days of my life."
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:39.260
  • Because he knows God is with him and he knows God is good.
  • 00:20:39.270 --> 00:20:47.020
  • And his soul is restored.
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:50.130
  • And as a result, good things continue to follow
  • 00:20:50.140 --> 00:20:56.210
  • the man or the woman whose soul is restored.
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:21:01.180
  • Does this make sense to anybody?
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:03.260
  • Now, listen, as you renew your mind, which simply means
  • 00:21:03.270 --> 00:21:08.270
  • to get your thoughts in agreement with God's Word,
  • 00:21:08.280 --> 00:21:14.050
  • and when your thought life is in agreement with God's Word,
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:17.230
  • the way of--your way of life is gonna get
  • 00:21:17.240 --> 00:21:20.050
  • in agreement with God's way.
  • 00:21:20.060 --> 00:21:22.230
  • [music]
  • 00:21:22.240 --> 00:21:25.280
  • Gregory: Well, when God restores your soul,
  • 00:21:26.230 --> 00:21:28.080
  • he restores everything.
  • 00:21:28.090 --> 00:21:30.160
  • And I wanna help you move towards those still waters we
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:33.120
  • talked about in Psalm 23, that place of perfect peace
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:37.030
  • where nothing's missing and nothing's broken in your life.
  • 00:21:37.040 --> 00:21:39.230
  • The only way to get to that place is by God
  • 00:21:39.240 --> 00:21:42.070
  • restoring your soul.
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:43.240
  • When your soul is restored, everything's restored.
  • 00:21:43.250 --> 00:21:45.210
  • That's what Psalm 23 is all about.
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:48.020
  • And I want you to make this restoration plan a part
  • 00:21:48.030 --> 00:21:51.070
  • of your daily life.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:53.050

  • and on the Internet is troubling.
  • 00:22:46.290 --> 00:22:48.170
  • Every day seems to bring a new report of terror or economic
  • 00:22:48.180 --> 00:22:51.210
  • crisis or mass violence or a new crisis on the global front that
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:55.080
  • threatens our sense of security.

  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:59.070
  • government and legislation is not the fix.
  • 00:22:59.080 --> 00:23:01.260

  • It's the crisis called wrong thinking.

  • Gregory: The fact is, is putting more laws in place is
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:15.100
  • not going to change people's desires and change their
  • 00:23:15.110 --> 00:23:20.030
  • decisions but if we can put the right thoughts in place,
  • 00:23:20.040 --> 00:23:24.000
  • your thought life leads to the choices that you make.
  • 00:23:24.010 --> 00:23:26.200
  • Your thought life leads to the emotions that you have.

  • Your thought life leads to the belief system that you adopt.
  • 00:23:29.070 --> 00:23:31.290
  • And if we can change your thinking,
  • 00:23:32.000 --> 00:23:33.260
  • we can change your life.
  • 00:23:33.270 --> 00:23:35.180
  • announcer: Anxiety, depression, panic,
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:37.100
  • mental disorders, have a grip on our world.
  • 00:23:37.110 --> 00:23:39.110
  • We bought the devil's lie that pills and prescriptions
  • 00:23:39.120 --> 00:23:41.250
  • will bring us peace.
  • 00:23:41.260 --> 00:23:43.170
  • But what we desperately need is the peace that comes
  • 00:23:43.180 --> 00:23:45.200
  • only from God.
  • 00:23:45.210 --> 00:23:47.080
  • Gregory: God has an answer.
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:48.200
  • We don't have to let our culture fall apart.
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:50.210
  • We don't have to be a part of a generation that is so drugged up
  • 00:23:50.220 --> 00:23:54.020
  • we're numb to our pain because all we're trying to do is numb
  • 00:23:54.030 --> 00:23:57.120
  • our pain and therefore, we can't ever heal our pain
  • 00:23:57.130 --> 00:23:59.280
  • 'cause we're never getting to the root of it
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:01.250

  • And every one of us has wrong thinking that has to be dealt
