  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN.
  • 00:00:27.120 --> 00:00:28.200
  • HE WAS TALKING TO GOD.
  • 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:30.100
  • HE SAID, "GOD, WHAT'S A MILLION
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:31.120
  • YEARS LIKE TO YOU?"
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:34.030

  • 00:00:36.140 --> 00:00:39.100
  • HE SAID, "WELL, GOD. WHAT'S A

  • MILLION DOLLARS LIKE TO YOU?"
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:42.080
  • HE SAID, "SON, A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:42.270
  • TO ME IS LIKE ONE PENNY TO YOU."
  • 00:00:43.250 --> 00:00:46.250
  • HE THOUGHT ABOUT IT A MOMENT AND
  • 00:00:46.250 --> 00:00:48.020
  • FINALLY GOT HIS NERVE UP.
  • 00:00:48.020 --> 00:00:49.120
  • HE SAID, "GOD, WOULD YOU GIVE ME
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:50.060
  • A PENNY?"
  • 00:00:50.060 --> 00:00:51.170
  • GOD SAID, "SURE, JUST A SECOND."
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:52.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:53.140 --> 00:00:56.140
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE.
  • 00:00:56.140 --> 00:00:57.020

  • IT COULD OVERFLOW AND INCREASE
  • 00:01:34.010 --> 00:01:36.070
  • IN SUCH A WAY THAT DRAINAGE AND

  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:04.010
  • THIS IS WHAT DAVID DID.
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:05.270
  • FIRST CHRONICLES, CHAPTER

  • FOURTEEN, HE WAS FACING AN
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.010
  • IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:10.070
  • HE AND HIS MEN WERE UP AGAINST A
  • 00:04:10.070 --> 00:04:12.010
  • HUGE ARMY, THE PHILISTINES.
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:14.110
  • THEY WERE GREATLY OUTNUMBERED.
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:16.070
  • IN THE NATURAL, THEY DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:04:16.070 --> 00:04:17.180
  • A CHANCE.
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:19.040
  • BUT GOD GAVE DAVID THE PROMISE
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:20.150
  • THAT HE WOULD GO WITH THEM AND
  • 00:04:20.150 --> 00:04:22.080
  • THEY WOULD DEFEAT THIS ARMY.
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:24.120
  • DAVID WENT OUT AND DID JUST
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:25.200
  • THAT.
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:26.220
  • GOD GAVE THEM THE VICTORY.
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:28.000
  • DAVID WAS SO OVERWHELMED WITH
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.200
  • GOD'S GOODNESS HE TRIED TO

  • DESCRIBE IT IN VERSE ELEVEN.
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:33.200
  • HE SAID, "GOD HAS BROKEN THROUGH
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:36.140
  • TO MY ENEMIES LIKE THE BREAKING
  • 00:04:36.140 --> 00:04:38.000
  • FORTH OF WATER."
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:41.090
  • ONE TRANSLATION SAYS, "LIKE A
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:42.200
  • RAGING FLOOD."
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:44.180
  • NOTICE, DAVID LIKENED GOD'S
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:46.150
  • POWER TO A FLOOD.
  • 00:04:46.150 --> 00:04:48.260
  • HE WAS SAYING, "WHEN GOD SHOWS
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:50.140
  • UP IT'S GOING TO BE LIKE A FLOOD
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:51.150
  • OF FAVOR, A FLOOD OF STRENGTH,
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:54.110
  • A FLOOD OF GOOD BREAKS."
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:56.110
  • THINK ABOUT HOW POWERFUL
  • 00:04:56.110 --> 00:04:57.120
  • WATER IS.
  • 00:04:57.120 --> 00:04:59.040
  • THREE OR FOUR FEET OF WATER CAN
  • 00:04:59.040 --> 00:05:00.170
  • PICK UP A CAR THAT WEIGHS
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:01.270
  • THOUSANDS OF POUNDS AND MOVE IT
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:03.180
  • ALL AROUND.

  • NOTHING CAN STOP THE FORCE OF
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:12.120
  • THAT WATER.
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:13.240
  • IN THE SAME WAY, YOU MAY HAVE
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:15.020
  • OBSTACLES THAT LOOK
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:16.270
  • INSURMOUNTABLE, DREAMS THAT LOOK
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:18.220
  • UNATTAINABLE, BUT LET ME
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:20.250
  • ENCOURAGE YOU.
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:22.090
  • WHEN GOD RELEASES A FLOOD OF HIS
  • 00:05:22.090 --> 00:05:23.240
  • POWER NOTHING WILL BE ABLE TO

  • AMAZING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:35.000
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET IN AGREEMENT

  • I MET A LADY A COUPLE OF YEARS
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:52.020
  • AGO AFTER THE SERVICE.
  • 00:07:52.020 --> 00:07:53.200
  • SHE WAS IN TOWN FOR TREATMENT
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:55.280
  • AT M.D. ANDERSON, OUR CANCER

  • HOSPITAL.
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:58.150
  • SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE A TUMOR
  • 00:07:58.150 --> 00:07:59.120
  • REMOVED AND THEN SHE WAS GOING
  • 00:07:59.120 --> 00:08:00.240
  • TO HAVE TO TAKE CHEMOTHERAPY.
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:02.280
  • ALL OF HER MEDICAL RECORDS,
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:04.120
  • BLOOD WORK, X-RAYS WERE SHIPPED
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.160
  • FROM HER HOSPITAL BACK AT HOME.
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:09.110
  • THE DOCTOR SHE WAS USING HERE
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:11.080
  • WANTED HER TO RETAKE ALL THE
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:13.000
  • TESTS AND REDO ALL THE X-RAYS
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:15.020
  • JUST TO DOUBLE-CHECK AND VERIFY
  • 00:08:15.020 --> 00:08:16.120
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:17.260
  • SHE WAS ALREADY SCHEDULED FOR
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.050
  • SURGERY WHEN THE DOCTOR CALLED
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:21.000
  • HER IN. HE COULDN'T FIND THE

  • TUMOR ANYMORE. (CHEERING)
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:25.110
  • IT WAS VERY CLEAR ON ONE X-RAY
  • 00:08:25.110 --> 00:08:26.230
  • BUT ON THIS NEW ONE YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:28.070
  • SEE ANYTHING.
  • 00:08:28.070 --> 00:08:30.230
  • HE SAID, "I'VE BEEN DOING THIS
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:31.240
  • FOR 26 YEARS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN

  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:35.080
  • WHAT WAS THAT?
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:36.150
  • A FLOOD OF HEALING.
  • 00:08:36.150 --> 00:08:38.010
  • A FLOOD OF RESTORATION.
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.260
  • FRIENDS, GOD CAN DO WHAT
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:40.270
  • MEDICINE CANNOT DO.
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:43.070
  • GOD MADE YOUR BODY.
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:45.150
  • HE HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS

  • HAND.
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:48.100
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS GOD HAS THE

  • FINAL SAY.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:51.000
  • HE SAID, "THE NUMBER OF YOUR

  • DAYS I WILL FULFILL."
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:55.020
  • THAT MEANS SICKNESS DOESN'T
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:56.130
  • DETERMINE HOW LONG YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:08:57.290
  • TO LIVE; GOD DOES. NOTHING CAN
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:59.200
  • SNATCH YOU OUT OF HIS HAND.

  • NATURAL BUT YOU'RE UNDER A FLASH
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:10.260
  • FLOOD WARNING. ANY MOMENT YOU
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:13.080
  • COULD SEE A FLOOD OF HEALING.

  • THAT THE COMMA WAS MISPLACED
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:29.110
  • DURING TRANSLATION.
  • 00:09:29.110 --> 00:09:32.000
  • INSTEAD OF READING, "WHEN THE

  • AFTER THE WORD "IN."

  • WITH CONNOR AND PRAY TOGETHER
  • 00:15:46.000 --> 00:15:47.150

  • ONE NIGHT SAMANTHA HAD JUST
  • 00:15:49.140 --> 00:15:50.250

  • HE QUOTED WORD FOR WORD THAT
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:16.270
  • CONFESSION WE MAKE AT THE START
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:18.090
  • OF EVERY SERVICE.
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.200
  • WHAT WAS THAT?
  • 00:16:19.200 --> 00:16:20.210
  • LIKE A FLOOD, GOD'S FAVOR
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:21.270
  • OVERTOOK CONNOR.
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:24.030
  • CRAIG TOLD ME HOW THEY WOULD
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:25.130
  • TAKE DVD'S OF MY MESSAGES HOME
  • 00:16:25.130 --> 00:16:27.100
  • EVERY WEEK AND CONNOR WOULD
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:29.210
  • WATCH THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:16:29.210 --> 00:16:32.060
  • WHEN HE TURNED ON CARTOONS HE
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:33.270
  • WOULD NORMALLY ONLY WATCH FIVE
  • 00:16:33.270 --> 00:16:35.230
  • OR TEN MINUTES BUT HE WOULD
  • 00:16:35.230 --> 00:16:36.180
  • WATCH MY WHOLE 30-MINUTE MESSAGE
  • 00:16:36.180 --> 00:16:37.250
  • OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:40.080
  • I TOLD CRAIG, "WHEN A
  • 00:16:40.080 --> 00:16:41.090
  • FIVE-YEAR-OLD CHOOSES ME OVER
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:43.060
  • BARNEY THAT MAKES ME FEEL
  • 00:16:43.060 --> 00:16:44.190
  • REALLY GOOD." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:44.190 --> 00:16:47.150
  • BUT CONNOR STILL HAS A WAY TO
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:48.170
  • GO BUT WE KNOW WHAT GOD STARTED
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:50.050
  • HE WILL FINISH.
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:51.290
  • FRIENDS, GOD WANTS TO RELEASE A
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:53.170
  • FLOOD OF HIS POWER, NOT A
  • 00:16:53.230 --> 00:16:56.230
  • A FLOOD OF HEALING, A FLOOD OF
  • 00:17:00.290 --> 00:17:02.250
  • IDEAS.
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:04.130
  • SOME OF YOU ARE BELIEVING TOO
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.240
  • SMALL. YOU'VE SETTLED WHERE YOU
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:07.160
  • ARE THINKING THAT YOU'VE
  • 00:17:07.160 --> 00:17:09.170
  • REACHED YOUR LIMITS AND YOUR
  • 00:17:09.170 --> 00:17:11.190
  • CHILD COULD NEVER GET BETTER
  • 00:17:11.190 --> 00:17:12.220
  • AND YOU COULD NEVER OVERCOME
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:13.240
  • THAT OBSTACLE.
  • 00:17:13.240 --> 00:17:14.290
  • NO, YOU NEED TO GET READY.
  • 00:17:14.290 --> 00:17:16.060
  • I CAN SEE SOMETHING IN YOUR
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.070
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:18.200
  • THROUGH MY EYES OF FAITH I CAN
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:20.150
  • SEE A TIDAL WAVE COMING YOUR
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:22.140
  • WAY.
  • 00:17:22.140 --> 00:17:23.220
  • IT'S NOT A WAVE OF DEFEAT, A
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:25.040
  • WAVE OF BAD BREAKS, A WAVE OF
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:27.000
  • MORE OF THE SAME.
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:28.150
  • NO, THINGS HAVE SHIFTED.
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:30.020
  • IT'S A WAVE OF INCREASE, A WAVE
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:31.090
  • OF FAVOR, A WAVE OF HEALING.
  • 00:17:31.270 --> 00:17:34.270
  • IT'S GOD RELEASING HIS GOODNESS
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:36.070
  • LIKE A FLOOD.
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:37.190
  • IT'S GOING TO HELP YOU TO
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:38.210
  • OVERCOME THAT OBSTACLE.
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:40.240
  • IT'S GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO
  • 00:17:40.240 --> 00:17:41.200
  • ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:43.110
  • WHY DON'T YOU DARE TO BELIEVE?
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:45.210
  • IF YOU THINK "TRICKLE" YOU'RE
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:47.150
  • GOING TO RECEIVE TRICKLE.
  • 00:17:47.150 --> 00:17:49.190
  • IF YOU THINK THE PROBLEM IS TOO
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:51.070
  • BIG IT'S GOING TO KEEP YOU
  • 00:17:51.070 --> 00:17:52.130
  • DEFEATED.
  • 00:17:52.130 --> 00:17:53.200
  • BUT IF YOU COULD JUST SWITCH
  • 00:17:53.200 --> 00:17:55.030
  • OVER INTO FAITH AND START
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:56.130
  • THINKING "FLOOD" THEN GOD COULD
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:57.290
  • SHOW YOU A FLOOD.
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:17:59.140
  • IF YOU'LL THINK "OVERFLOW", GOD
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:01.020
  • CAN BRING YOU INTO OVERFLOW.
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:02.280
  • IF YOU'LL DARE TO THINK "TIDAL
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:04.040
  • WAVE", THEN GOD CAN RELEASE A
  • 00:18:04.040 --> 00:18:06.050
  • TIDAL WAVE OF HIS GOODNESS IN
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:08.260
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:10.030
  • A FEW YEARS AGO WE WERE AT
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:10.290
  • DINNER AT A RESTAURANT AND OUR
  • 00:18:10.290 --> 00:18:12.230
  • SON JONATHAN WAS WITH US.
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:14.170
  • HE'S SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD NOW.
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:16.040
  • HE WAS ABOUT ELEVEN OR TWELVE AT
  • 00:18:16.040 --> 00:18:17.250
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:18.240
  • WHEN WE WENT TO ORDER, JONATHAN
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:20.000
  • TOLD THE WAITER, "I'D LIKE A
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:21.100
  • STEAK."
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:22.250
  • THE WAITER ASKED, "DO YOU WANT A
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:23.280
  • 6-OUNCE, A 10-OUNCE, OR A
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:25.060
  • 14-OUNCE?"
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:28.050
  • JONATHAN DID NOT THINK TWICE.
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:30.010
  • HE DIDN'T LOOK AT THE MENU TO
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:31.090
  • CHECK THE PRICE.
  • 00:18:31.090 --> 00:18:32.140
  • HE DIDN'T ASK ME IF IT WAS OKAY.
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:34.070
  • HE IMMEDIATELY SAID, "I'LL TAKE
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:35.190
  • THE 14-OUNCE." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:38.020
  • WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD JONATHAN
  • 00:18:38.020 --> 00:18:39.090
  • IS NOT EXPECTING A TRICKLE, A
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:41.050
  • STREAM, A RIVER, BUT A FLOOD.
  • 00:18:41.050 --> 00:18:43.220
  • JONATHAN NOT ONLY HAS A BIG
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:45.070
  • APPETITE BUT HE KNOWS WHO HIS
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.290
  • FATHER IS. HE KNOWS I WANT TO
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.040
  • BE GOOD TO HIM.
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:52.030
  • THAT'S THE WAY WE NEED TO BE
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:53.070
  • WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:54.290
  • DON'T HAVE A SMALL-MINDED
  • 00:18:54.290 --> 00:18:55.270
  • MENTALITY.
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:58.180
  • DON'T HAVE A NARROW LIMITED
  • 00:18:58.180 --> 00:18:59.180
  • VISION.
  • 00:18:59.180 --> 00:19:01.050
  • TOO MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT
  • 00:19:01.050 --> 00:19:02.060
  • THEY'RE BOTHERING GOD.
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:03.210
  • THEY SHOULDN'T EXPECT TOO MUCH.
  • 00:19:03.210 --> 00:19:05.060
  • "GOD, I'M NOT EXPECTING TO GET
  • 00:19:05.060 --> 00:19:07.060
  • OUT OF THIS PROBLEM. IF YOU
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:08.080
  • COULD JUST HELP ME ENDURE IT."
  • 00:19:08.080 --> 00:19:10.000
  • "GOD, I DON'T THINK I'LL EVER
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:11.020
  • MEET ANYBODY GREAT AND FALL IN
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:13.280
  • LOVE AND GET MARRIED. IF YOU
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:14.200
  • CAN JUST HELP ME GOD NOT TO BE
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:15.150
  • TOO LONELY IN LIFE."
  • 00:19:15.150 --> 00:19:18.050
  • NO, YOU'RE THINKING TRICKLE WHEN
  • 00:19:18.050 --> 00:19:19.120
  • GOD HAS A FLOOD.
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:21.040
  • YOU'RE THINKING BARELY GET BY
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:22.190
  • WHEN GOD HAS ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:24.170
  • YOU'RE THINKING 6-OUNCE WHEN GOD
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:25.280
  • HAS 14-OUNCE.
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:28.150
  • IF YOU'LL BELIEVE BIGGER GOD
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:30.040
  • WILL ACT BIGGER.
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:31.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO LIKE JONATHAN.
  • 00:19:31.290 --> 00:19:33.180
  • STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND SAY,
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:35.120
  • "GOD, I KNOW YOU CONTROL THE
  • 00:19:35.120 --> 00:19:37.140
  • WHOLE UNIVERSE YET I AM THE
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:39.080
  • APPLE OF YOUR EYE. I'M YOUR
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:40.250
  • MOST PRIZED POSSESSION. GOD,
  • 00:19:40.250 --> 00:19:42.260
  • YOU SAID YOU ARE LONGING TO BE
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:44.130
  • GOOD TO ME. SO LORD, I JUST
  • 00:19:44.130 --> 00:19:46.060
  • WANT TO THANK YOU FOR A FLOOD
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:47.200
  • OF YOUR FAVOR IN MY LIFE."
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:50.200
  • WHEN YOU RELEASE YOUR FAITH IN A
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:51.260
  • BIG WAY LIKE THAT, IN A 14-OUNCE
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:53.220
  • WAY, GOD DOESN'T LOOK DOWN AND
  • 00:19:53.220 --> 00:19:55.170
  • THINK, "WHAT ARE THEY TALKING
  • 00:19:55.220 --> 00:19:58.220
  • ABOUT? WHO DO THEY THINK THEY
  • 00:19:58.220 --> 00:20:00.110
  • ARE? THEY DON'T DESERVE IT.
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:01.240
  • THE NERVE OF THOSE PEOPLE."
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:03.070
  • NO, THAT BRINGS A SMILE TO GOD'S
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.030
  • FACE.
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:05.140
  • HE SAYS, "I'M GOING TO OPEN THE
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:06.230
  • WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:08.140
  • NOT A STREAM, NOT A TRICKLE, NOT
  • 00:20:08.140 --> 00:20:10.270
  • A RIVER, BUT A FLOOD OF MY
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:12.160
  • FAVOR, A FLOOD OF MY GOODNESS,
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:14.150
  • A FLOOD OF MY MERCY."
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:16.130
  • ISAIAH SAID, "THE SPIRIT OF THE
  • 00:20:16.130 --> 00:20:18.060
  • LORD IS UPON ME TO ANNOUNCE A
  • 00:20:18.060 --> 00:20:19.260
  • DAY WHEN THE FREE FAVOR OF GOD
  • 00:20:20.050 --> 00:20:23.050
  • PROFUSELY ABOUNDS."
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:25.240
  • NOTICE THE WORD HE USED TO
  • 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:27.080
  • DESCRIBE GOD'S FAVOR,
  • 00:20:27.080 --> 00:20:29.020
  • "PROFUSELY."
  • 00:20:29.020 --> 00:20:30.260
  • THAT MEANS, "OVERWHELMING, OUT
  • 00:20:30.260 --> 00:20:32.070
  • OF THE NORM, EXCEEDING."
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:34.200
  • HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THIS FLOOD
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:35.220
  • OF FAVOR.
  • 00:20:35.220 --> 00:20:37.290
  • AT THAT TIME THE PEOPLE WERE IN
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:39.160
  • A DROUGHT, NO WATER.
  • 00:20:39.160 --> 00:20:41.140
  • ISAIAH CAME ALONG WITH THIS
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:43.080
  • GREAT NEWS.
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:44.180
  • "A SHIFT HAS COME. THE DROUGHT
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.270
  • IS COMING TO AN END. THE FAVOR
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:48.060
  • IS COMING LIKE A FLOOD."
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:50.190
  • BUT I'M SURE THERE WERE SOME
  • 00:20:50.190 --> 00:20:52.040
  • PEOPLE THAT THOUGHT, WHAT'S
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:53.040
  • ISAIAH TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:54.130
  • NOTHING IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:56.000
  • THERE'S NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY.
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:57.100
  • IT'S JUST AS CLEAR AND BLUE AND
  • 00:20:57.100 --> 00:20:58.230
  • DRY AND HOT AS IT WAS THE LAST
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:00.020
  • THREE MONTHS."
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:01.000
  • THEY MISSED THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:03.230
  • SEE THE FREE FAVOR OF GOD
  • 00:21:03.230 --> 00:21:06.150
  • PROFUSELY ABOUND.
  • 00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:08.070
  • DON'T LET THAT BE YOU.
  • 00:21:08.070 --> 00:21:09.170
  • LIKE ISAIAH, I'VE ANNOUNCED
  • 00:21:09.170 --> 00:21:11.110
  • TODAY A FLOOD OF GOD'S POWER IS
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:12.240
  • COMING.
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:15.120
  • FAVOR LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:21:15.120 --> 00:21:16.050
  • BEFORE.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:17.290
  • INSTEAD OF BEING OVERWHELMED BY
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:19.080
  • BURDENS YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:20.240
  • OVERWHELMED BY GOD'S BLESSINGS.
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:22.290
  • BUT THE REAL KEY IS CAN YOU
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:25.030
  • RECEIVE THIS INTO YOUR SPIRIT?
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:27.140
  • IT'S EASY TO THINK, "THIS IS NOT
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:28.260
  • FOR ME, JOEL. I DON'T SEE ANY
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.000
  • THING DIFFERENT HAPPENING.
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:31.220
  • I TRIED BEFORE AND IT DIDN'T
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:33.000
  • WORK OUT. I'VE BEEN THROUGH TOO
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:34.030
  • MUCH."
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:34.280
  • THAT KIND OF NEGATIVE THINKING
  • 00:21:34.280 --> 00:21:36.070
  • WILL STOP THE FLOOD.
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:37.220
  • GOD WORKS WHERE THERE IS AN
  • 00:21:37.220 --> 00:21:39.070
  • ATTITUDE OF FAITH.
  • 00:21:39.070 --> 00:21:40.230
  • WHEN YOU BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE
  • 00:21:40.230 --> 00:21:42.060
  • POSSIBLE. THE ENEMY CANNOT STOP
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:43.210
  • THIS FLOOD.
  • 00:21:43.210 --> 00:21:46.150
  • HE DOESN'T HAVE THAT MUCH POWER.
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:48.040
  • OTHER PEOPLE CANNOT STOP IT.
  • 00:21:48.040 --> 00:21:49.050
  • THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN STOP IT IS
  • 00:21:49.050 --> 00:21:50.190
  • YOU.
  • 00:21:50.200 --> 00:21:53.200
  • YOU CONTROL YOUR OWN DESTINY.

  • GOD IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:57.070
  • THE ENEMY IS AGAINST YOU.

  • YOU GET TO CAST THE DECIDING

  • VOTE.
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:02.000
  • I'M ASKING YOU TO TAKE THE
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:02.260
  • LIMITS OFF OF GOD.
  • 00:22:02.260 --> 00:22:04.280
  • HE WANTS TO DO SOMETHING NEW,
  • 00:22:04.280 --> 00:22:06.220
  • SOMETHING AMAZING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:06.220 --> 00:22:08.150
  • BUT THE REAL BATTLE IS TAKING
  • 00:22:08.150 --> 00:22:10.040
  • PLACE IN OUR THOUGHT LIFE, THOSE
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:12.040
  • THOUGHTS THAT SAY, "IT'S NOT
  • 00:22:12.040 --> 00:22:13.290
  • GOING TO HAPPEN. YOU'RE TOO
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:15.080

  • WELL. YOU'LL NEVER ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:18.240
  • YOUR DREAMS."
  • 00:22:18.240 --> 00:22:20.180
  • NO, THIS IS THE DAY THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:22:20.180 --> 00:22:21.270
  • GOING TO SEE THE FREE FAVOR OF
  • 00:22:21.270 --> 00:22:23.200
  • GOD PROFUSELY ABOUND.
  • 00:22:24.020 --> 00:22:27.020
  • GOD HAS FLOODS OF BLESSINGS IN
  • 00:22:27.020 --> 00:22:28.040
  • YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:30.050
  • HE HAS TIDAL WAVES OF INCREASE
  • 00:22:30.050 --> 00:22:31.270
  • AND JOY AND HEALING AND MERCY.
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:33.260
  • MAKE ROOM FOR THIS FLOOD.
  • 00:22:33.260 --> 00:22:36.120
  • GET IN AGREEMENT WITH GOD.
  • 00:22:36.120 --> 00:22:38.120
  • PAUL PRAYED IN EPHESIANS THAT
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:40.030
  • THE EYES OF OUR UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:42.170
  • WOULD BE FLOODED WITH LIGHT SO
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:44.250
  • THAT WE WOULD KNOW THE AMAZING
  • 00:22:44.250 --> 00:22:46.190
  • FUTURE GOD HAS IN STORE.
  • 00:22:46.190 --> 00:22:48.230
  • IT'S INTERESTING THAT PAUL USED
  • 00:22:48.230 --> 00:22:50.020
  • THAT PHRASE, "FLOODED WITH
  • 00:22:50.020 --> 00:22:51.050
  • LIGHT."
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:52.260
  • SEE, PAUL HAD EXPERIENCED A
  • 00:22:52.260 --> 00:22:54.010
  • PORTION OF THIS FLOOD BUT WE'RE
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:55.270
  • LIVING IN A BETTER DAY THAN
  • 00:22:55.270 --> 00:22:57.070
  • PAUL.
  • 00:22:57.070 --> 00:22:59.270
  • THIS IS THE DAY WHERE PAUL
  • 00:22:59.270 --> 00:23:00.260
  • DECLARED WE WOULD SEE THE
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:02.020
  • SURPASSING GREATNESS OF GOD'S
  • 00:23:02.020 --> 00:23:03.140
  • FAVOR.
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:05.160
  • PAUL WAS SAYING IN EFFECT, "I'VE
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:06.270
  • SEEN ONE LEVEL OF GOD'S
  • 00:23:06.270 --> 00:23:09.130
  • GOODNESS, BUT THE DAY WE'RE IN,
  • 00:23:09.130 --> 00:23:11.060
  • WE WOULD SEE GOD'S GOODNESS
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:13.120
  • LIKE NO GENERATION HAS SEEN IT
  • 00:23:13.120 --> 00:23:14.240
  • BEFORE."
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:16.220
  • I CAN TELL YOU FIRSTHAND,
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:18.240
  • VICTORIA AND I HAVE EXPERIENCED
  • 00:23:18.240 --> 00:23:20.230
  • THIS FLOOD OF GOD'S FAVOR.
  • 00:23:20.230 --> 00:23:22.250
  • GOD HAS OVERWHELMED US WITH HIS
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:24.010
  • GOODNESS. I'M NOT BRAGGING ON
  • 00:23:24.010 --> 00:23:24.270
  • US. I'M BRAGGING ON GOD.
  • 00:23:24.270 --> 00:23:27.160
  • GOD HAS TAKEN US BEYOND OUR
  • 00:23:27.160 --> 00:23:28.180
  • EDUCATION, BEYOND OUR TALENT,
  • 00:23:28.180 --> 00:23:30.260
  • BEYOND OUR TRAINING AND HE HAS
  • 00:23:30.260 --> 00:23:32.010
  • UNLEASHED HIS ABUNDANCE, HIS
  • 00:23:32.010 --> 00:23:34.150
  • WISDOM, HIS FAVOR IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:23:34.150 --> 00:23:36.190
  • I WAS THINKING ABOUT A COUPLE OF
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:37.110
  • MAIN KEYS.
  • 00:23:37.110 --> 00:23:38.280
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP GOD FIRST
  • 00:23:38.280 --> 00:23:39.270
  • PLACE IN YOUR LIFE. HONOR GOD.
  • 00:23:39.270 --> 00:23:42.260
  • DEAL WITH THE ISSUES THAT HE'S
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:44.090
  • BRINGING TO LIGHT. STAY OPEN
  • 00:23:44.090 --> 00:23:46.060
  • AND BE WILLING TO ALWAYS
  • 00:23:46.060 --> 00:23:48.130
  • CHANGE. WE DON'T HAVE TO BE
  • 00:23:48.130 --> 00:23:50.010
  • PERFECT. WE ALL HAVE FLAWS AND
  • 00:23:50.010 --> 00:23:51.240
  • WEAKNESSES BUT WE SHOULD BE
  • 00:23:51.240 --> 00:23:53.130
  • GROWING. WE SHOULD BE MAKING
  • 00:23:53.130 --> 00:23:55.070
  • PROGRESS, IMPROVING.
  • 00:23:55.070 --> 00:23:57.170
  • THE SECOND THING IS WE'VE
  • 00:23:57.170 --> 00:23:58.260
  • LEARNED TO TAKE THE LIMITS OFF
  • 00:23:58.260 --> 00:24:00.150
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:24:00.150 --> 00:24:01.210
  • LIKE JONATHAN, WE ASK FOR THE
  • 00:24:01.210 --> 00:24:02.250
  • 14-OUNCE. WE BELIEVE BIG.
  • 00:24:02.270 --> 00:24:05.270
  • WE PRAY BOLD PRAYERS AND WE LIVE
  • 00:24:05.270 --> 00:24:07.130
  • WITH THIS EXPECTANCY THAT GOD
  • 00:24:07.130 --> 00:24:09.290
  • HAS FLOODS OF FAVOR, FLOODS OF
  • 00:24:09.290 --> 00:24:12.120
  • WISDOM, FLOODS OF GOODNESS IN
  • 00:24:12.120 --> 00:24:14.150
  • OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:24:14.150 --> 00:24:16.130
  • MY PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT
  • 00:24:16.130 --> 00:24:18.030
  • THE EYES OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:24:18.030 --> 00:24:20.140
  • WOULD BE FLOODED WITH LIGHT,
  • 00:24:20.140 --> 00:24:23.050
  • THAT YOU WOULD KNOW HOW MUCH GOD
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:24.160
  • LOVES YOU, HOW MUCH HE IS FOR
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.020

  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE
