  • VERY WEALTHY.
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.140

  • A WIFE SO HE COULD ENJOY THE
  • 00:02:02.250 --> 00:02:04.180

  • SHE TOOK HIS BREATH AWAY.
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:15.040
  • HE SAID TO HER, "I KNOW I

  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:24.080
  • IMPRESSED, SHE TOOK HIS
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:25.210
  • BUSINESS CARD.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:26.250

  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT:
  • 00:02:30.220 --> 00:02:31.280
  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.110
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:35.010

  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:02:44.060 --> 00:02:45.210
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, IN
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:47.140
  • JESUS' NAME."
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.250
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:49.210
  • I WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:52.100
  • "SUPERSIZED."
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:53.080
  • A FEW YEARS AGO I WENT TO A
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:55.120
  • FAST FOOD RESTAURANT WITH OUR
  • 00:02:55.120 --> 00:02:56.250
  • CHILDREN, AND WE PULLED INTO
  • 00:02:56.250 --> 00:02:58.180
  • THE DRIVE THRU AND PLACED OUR
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:00.040
  • ORDER.
  • 00:03:00.040 --> 00:03:00.230
  • AND JUST WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:02.010
  • PULL UP TO THE MAIN WINDOW
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:03.140
  • WHERE YOU PAY, THE YOUNG LADY
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:05.060
  • SAID, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO
  • 00:03:05.060 --> 00:03:06.140
  • SUPERSIZE THAT?"
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:08.040
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THAT
  • 00:03:08.040 --> 00:03:08.250
  • MEANT.
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:09.140
  • AND I ASKED HER ABOUT IT.
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:10.220
  • SHE SAID, "THAT MEANS YOU'LL
  • 00:03:10.220 --> 00:03:11.150
  • GET MORE FRENCH FRIES, A
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:12.290
  • LARGER DRINK, A BIGGER
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.110
  • HAMBURGER.
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.160
  • INSTEAD OF THE NORMAL
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:16.170
  • PORTIONS, IT WILL BE
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:17.290
  • SUPERSIZED, BIGGER THAN
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.280
  • EXPECTED."
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.090
  • THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.270
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:24.010
  • HIS DREAM FOR YOUR LIFE IS
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:25.220
  • HE'S GOING TO TAKE YOU
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:28.230
  • FURTHER THAN YOU'RE
  • 00:03:28.230 --> 00:03:29.190
  • EXPECTING.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:30.270
  • HE'S GOING TO OPEN DOORS THAT
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:32.120
  • YOU COULD'VE NEVER OPENED.
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:33.290
  • HE'S GOING TO GIVE YOU MORE
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:34.280
  • INFLUENCE THAN YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:36.110
  • POSSIBLE.
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:37.200
  • PAUL SAID IN EPHESIANS 3:
  • 00:03:37.200 --> 00:03:39.190
  • "GOD WILL DO EXCEEDING
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:41.160
  • ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL WE CAN
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:43.200
  • ASK OR THINK."
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:45.010
  • HE'S SAYIN' IN TODAY'S
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:46.080
  • SUPERSIZE YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.130
  • WHATEVER YOU'RE DREAMIN'
  • 00:03:50.130 --> 00:03:51.100
  • ABOUT, WHATEVER YOU'RE
  • 00:03:51.100 --> 00:03:52.190
  • BELIEVIN' FOR, GOD'S GOING TO
  • 00:03:52.190 --> 00:03:54.040
  • TAKE THAT AND MAKE IT BIGGER,
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:03:56.090
  • BETTER, MORE REWARDING, THAN
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:57.290
  • YOU'VE EVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:03:59.220
  • MAYBE YOUR DREAM IS TO GET
  • 00:03:59.220 --> 00:04:01.020
  • OUT OF DEBT, TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:02.140
  • PAY YOUR HOUSE OFF.
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.230
  • THAT'S GOOD, BUT GOD IS GOING
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:05.140
  • TO SUPERSIZE IT.
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:07.050
  • HE'S GOING TO BLESS YOU IN
  • 00:04:07.050 --> 00:04:08.100
  • SUCH A WAY THAT YOU CAN NOT
  • 00:04:08.100 --> 00:04:10.030
  • ONLY PAY OFF YOUR HOUSE, BUT
  • 00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:11.270
  • YOU CAN HELP OTHER PEOPLE PAY
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.160
  • OFF THEIR HOUSE, WHERE YOU
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:14.280
  • DON'T JUST HAVE ENOUGH FOR
  • 00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:15.290
  • YOURSELF, YOU HAVE AN
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:17.060
  • ABUNDANCE SO YOU CAN BE A
  • 00:04:17.060 --> 00:04:18.270
  • BLESSING TO SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:20.210
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOD
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:22.030
  • SUPERSIZES.
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:23.240
  • YOUR PRAYER MAY BE FOR YOUR
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:25.110
  • SON TO GET BACK ON COURSE.
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:27.120
  • HE'S RUNNIN' WITH THE WRONG
  • 00:04:27.120 --> 00:04:28.090
  • CROWD AND MAKIN' DECISIONS
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:30.020
  • THAT ARE NOT GOOD.
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:30.260
  • AND YOU'D BE HAPPY IF HE JUST
  • 00:04:30.260 --> 00:04:32.230
  • GOT BACK TO WHERE HE WAS.
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:34.210
  • BUT WHEN GOD SUPERSIZES IT,
  • 00:04:34.210 --> 00:04:37.050
  • HE'S NOT ONLY GOING TO BRING
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:38.120
  • HIM BACK TO THE RIGHT COURSE,
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:40.050
  • HE'S GOING TO USE HIM TO HELP
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.280
  • OTHER PEOPLE IN THAT SAME
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:43.070
  • SITUATION.
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.110
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE AMAZED AT
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:46.000
  • THE DIFFERENCE THAT YOUR SON
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:47.140
  • WILL MAKE.
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:48.010
  • OR MAYBE YOU'RE SINGLE.
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:50.020
  • YOUR DREAM IS TO MEET THE
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.030
  • RIGHT PERSON.
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:52.120
  • YOU HAVE THIS SPECIFIC
  • 00:04:52.120 --> 00:04:53.210
  • CRITERIA THAT YOU'RE LOOKIN'
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:54.270
  • FOR, AND THESE QUALIFICATIONS
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:56.210
  • THAT YOU WOULD BE HAPPY WITH.
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:58.130
  • BUT WHEN GOD SUPERSIZES IT,
  • 00:04:58.130 --> 00:05:00.240
  • HE'S GOING TO BRING YOU
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:01.180
  • SOMEBODY BETTER THAN YOU'VE
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.030
  • IMAGINED.
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.120
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:05.230
  • WHEN I MET VICTORIA IN MY
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:07.120
  • EARLY 20S, SHE EXCEEDED MY
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:09.140
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.240
  • SHE WAS NOT ONLY SMART,
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.150
  • TALENTED, FUNNY, BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:14.150
  • BUT SHE HAD THE BEST TASTE IN
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:16.030
  • MEN.
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:16.260
  • SHE WAS A SUPERSIZE BLESSING.
  • 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:20.040
  • YOUR DREAM MAY BE TO WORK
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:22.000
  • YOUR WAY UP TO MANAGEMENT, TO
  • 00:05:22.000 --> 00:05:23.190
  • BUT WHEN GOD SUPERSIZES IT,
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:27.200
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:28.110
  • WORKIN' FOR THAT COMPANY,
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.210
  • YOU'RE GOING TO OWN YOUR OWN
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:30.250
  • COMPANY.
  • 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:31.230
  • YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK UP AND
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:32.290
  • SAY, "THIS IS EXCEEDING
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.110
  • ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ANYTHING I
  • 00:05:34.110 --> 00:05:36.130
  • COULD ASK OR IMAGINE."
  • 00:05:36.130 --> 00:05:37.100
  • BUT WHAT YOU'RE DREAMIN'
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:39.010
  • ABOUT MAY SEEM BIG TO YOU.
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:40.280
  • YOU DON'T SEE HOW IT CAN
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:41.220
  • HAPPEN, HOW YOU COULD GET OUT
  • 00:05:41.220 --> 00:05:43.110
  • OF DEBT, BREAK THE ADDICTION,
  • 00:05:43.110 --> 00:05:45.090
  • ACCOMPLISH THAT GOAL.
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:46.170
  • YOU HAVE TO STRETCH YOUR
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:47.180
  • FAITH TO JUST BELIEVE THAT IT
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:49.150
  • WILL HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:49.150 --> 00:05:50.220
  • BUT WHAT YOU'RE BELIEVIN' FOR
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:52.150
  • IS JUST THE STARTING POINT.
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:54.130
  • GOD IS GOING TO EXCEED YOUR

  • I KNOW A YOUNG LADY THAT CAME

  • FROM A LOW-INCOME FAMILY.
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:04.110
  • HER PARENTS AND RELATIVES HAD
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:05.280
  • ALWAYS STRUGGLED TO MAKE IT.

  • ALL SHE HAD SEEN GROWIN' UP
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:18.040

  • SHE THOUGHT IF SHE COULD JUST
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:26.000
  • GET SOMETHIN' BETTER THAN
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.000
  • THOSE LOW-LEVEL JOBS THAT HER
  • 00:06:27.000 --> 00:06:28.190
  • PARENTS HAD, SHE WOULD BE
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:30.010

  • AND THEY PUT HIM NEXT TO THE
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:40.050
  • MAIN DOOR.
  • 00:08:40.050 --> 00:08:41.110
  • HE WOULD SIT THERE AND ASK
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:42.150
  • FOR MONEY.
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:43.140
  • THIS IS HOW HE SURVIVED.
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:45.030
  • YEAR AFTER YEAR, PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:46.200
  • GIVE HIM DONATIONS.
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.070
  • LOOKED LIKE THIS WAS HIS LOT
  • 00:08:48.070 --> 00:08:49.140
  • IN LIFE.
  • 00:08:49.140 --> 00:08:50.160
  • HE DIDN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT IT.
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:52.050
  • HE WAS DOIN' HIS BEST WITH
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:53.140
  • WHAT HE HAD.
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:54.050
  • BUT ONE AFTERNOON PETER AND
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:56.150
  • JOHN CAME TO THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:58.070
  • AS THEY WERE ABOUT TO WALK
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:08:59.070
  • IN, THIS MAN ASKED THEM FOR
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:01.030
  • MONEY.
  • 00:09:01.030 --> 00:09:02.020
  • HE MUST HAVE BEEN LOOKING
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:03.050
  • DOWN BECAUSE PETER SAID,
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:05.060
  • "LOOK AT US."
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:05.250
  • AND THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "THE
  • 00:09:05.250 --> 00:09:07.160
  • MAN LOOKED UP, EXPECTING TO
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:09.200
  • RECEIVE A GIFT."
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:11.180
  • PETER SAID, "I DON'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:09:11.180 --> 00:09:12.230
  • MONEY FOR YA, BUT I CAN
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:14.090
  • GIVE YA SOMETHIN' BETTER.
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:15.220
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS, RISE

  • AND WALK."
  • 00:09:17.110 --> 00:09:18.100
  • PETER TOOK HIM BY THE HAND.
  • 00:09:18.100 --> 00:09:19.160
  • HE HELPED THE MAN UP.
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:20.200
  • WHEN HE DID, INSTANTLY, HIS
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:22.260
  • LEGS WERE HEALED.
  • 00:09:22.260 --> 00:09:24.040
  • HE STARTED WALKIN', RUNNIN',
  • 00:09:24.040 --> 00:09:25.210
  • LEAPING, SO GRATEFUL FOR WHAT
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:27.100
  • GOD HAD DONE.
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:28.210
  • BUT HERE'S MY POINT.
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:29.270
  • WHEN PETER SAID, "I HAVE
  • 00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:31.050
  • SOMETHIN' FOR YOU," THE MAN
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:33.010
  • EXPECTED THE ORDINARY.
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:35.100
  • HE EXPECTED WHAT HE HAD
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.160
  • ALWAYS SEEN.
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:37.290
  • IT HAD HAPPENED AGAIN AND
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.070
  • AGAIN THE SAME WAY.
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:40.020
  • HE WOULD ASK.
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:41.010
  • PEOPLE WOULD GIVE HIM A FEW
  • 00:09:41.010 --> 00:09:42.040
  • DONATIONS.
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.130
  • BUT THIS DAY, GOD CAME ALONG
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:46.030
  • AND DID SOMETHIN' OUT OF THE
  • 00:09:46.030 --> 00:09:47.160
  • ORDINARY.
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:48.200
  • HE WAS EXPECTING A FEW COINS,
  • 00:09:48.200 --> 00:09:50.270
  • BUT GOD SAID, IN EFFECT, "I'M
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:52.180
  • GOING TO EXCEED YOUR
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:54.010
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:09:54.010 --> 00:09:55.080
  • I'M GOING TO DO ABOVE AND
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:56.230
  • BEYOND WHAT YOU'RE ASKING
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.110
  • FOR."
  • 00:09:58.110 --> 00:09:59.110
  • THAT ONE MOMENT OF FAVOR
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:01.110
  • THRUST HIM TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.180
  • AND LIKE THIS MAN, YOU MAY BE
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:05.100
  • EXPECTING THE ORDINARY.
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:07.130
  • YOU'RE GOING THROUGH THE
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.050

  • BEST WITH WHAT YA HAVE.
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:11.290
  • BUT WHERE YOU ARE LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:13.260
  • THAT'S THE WAY IT'S ALWAYS
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:14.260
  • GOING TO BE.
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:15.270
  • THERE'S NO SIGN OF ANYTHING
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:17.060
  • CHANGING.
  • 00:10:17.060 --> 00:10:18.030
  • YOU'RE EXPECTING MORE OF THE

  • SAME.
  • 00:10:19.120 --> 00:10:20.140
  • BUT GOD IS SAYIN', "I'M ABOUT

  • BEYOND YOUR NORMAL INCOME."
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:37.080
  • BLESSINGS ARE ABOUT TO CHASE
  • 00:10:37.080 --> 00:10:38.280
  • YOU DOWN.
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:40.000

  • YOU WEREN'T EXPECTING IT.
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:49.030
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE IT COMING,

  • GOD.
  • 00:10:51.220 --> 00:10:52.280
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT HOW

  • GOD IS A RUNNIN'-OVER GOD.
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:12.060
  • HE'S NOT A GET-BY GOD.
  • 00:11:12.060 --> 00:11:13.220
  • HE'S A MORE-THAN-ENOUGH GOD.

  • NEVER THOUGHT OF.
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:22.060
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE, WHEN PETER
  • 00:11:22.060 --> 00:11:23.230
  • NEEDED MONEY TO PAY HIS
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:25.000
  • TAXES, JESUS TOLD HIM TO GO

  • DOWN TO THE LAKE.

  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:35.080
  • GOD SHIFTED THE WINDS AND
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:37.110
  • CAUSED MILLIONS OF QUAIL TO
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:39.120
  • COME INTO THEIR CAMP.
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:41.030
  • THESE 2 MILLION PEOPLE HAD A
  • 00:11:41.030 --> 00:11:42.230
  • STEAK DINNER OUT IN THE
  • 00:11:42.230 --> 00:11:44.040
  • MIDDLE OF THE DESERT.
  • 00:11:44.040 --> 00:11:45.200
  • EXPERTS TELL US, "QUAIL DON'T
  • 00:11:45.200 --> 00:11:47.150
  • NORMALLY TRAVEL THAT FAR AWAY
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:49.140
  • FROM WATER."
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:50.180
  • THAT GOES AGAINST THEIR
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:51.200
  • NATURAL INSTINCT.
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.110
  • THIS WAS GOD MAKIN' SOMETHIN'
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:55.070
  • HAPPEN THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:56.180
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:57.170
  • FRIENDS, GOD CONTROLS THE
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:11:58.260
  • WHOLE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:00.060
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO FIGURE IT
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:01.070
  • OUT.
  • 00:12:01.070 --> 00:12:01.250
  • JUST DARE TO BELIEVE.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.160
  • ALL THROUGH THE DAY, "LORD,
  • 00:12:03.160 --> 00:12:05.030
  • THANK YOU FOR SUPERSIZIN' MY
  • 00:12:05.030 --> 00:12:06.260
  • LIFE.
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:07.240
  • THANK YOU FOR EXCEEDING MY
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:09.020
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:10.090
  • THANK YA FOR THOSE
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:11.030
  • RUNNIN'-OVER BLESSINGS."
  • 00:12:11.030 --> 00:12:13.030
  • I TALKED TO A MAN THAT OWNS A
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:14.180
  • LANDSCAPE COMPANY.
  • 00:12:14.180 --> 00:12:16.040
  • THEIR SPECIALTY IS BAGGING
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:17.290
  • GRASS CLIPPINGS AND DISPOSING
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:19.200
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:20.100
  • AND HE HAD AN AGREEMENT WITH
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:21.230
  • A LOCAL FARMER WHERE HE WOULD
  • 00:12:21.230 --> 00:12:23.120
  • TAKE THOSE GRASS CLIPPINGS
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:24.250
  • AND FEED HIS HERD OF CATTLE.
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:26.070
  • AND THIS WORKED WELL FOR MANY
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:28.020
  • YEARS.
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:28.230
  • EVERYTHING WAS GOIN' GREAT
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:30.110
  • UNTIL THIS FARMER BECAME
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.240
  • SICK.
  • 00:12:31.240 --> 00:12:32.250
  • HE WAS AN OLDER GENTLEMAN,
  • 00:12:32.250 --> 00:12:34.090
  • AND DECIDED TO SELL HIS FARM.
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:35.260
  • AND THIS MAN GOT BIDS OF
  • 00:12:35.260 --> 00:12:38.130
  • GETTING RID OF HIS GRASS
  • 00:12:38.130 --> 00:12:40.030
  • CLIPPINGS IN CONVENTIONAL
  • 00:12:40.030 --> 00:12:41.120
  • WAYS, BUT THE LOWEST ONE WAS
  • 00:12:41.120 --> 00:12:43.210
  • TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
  • 00:12:43.210 --> 00:12:45.110
  • A YEAR, AND HE COULDN'T
  • 00:12:45.110 --> 00:12:46.130
  • AFFORD THAT KIND OF OVERHEAD.
  • 00:12:46.130 --> 00:12:47.270
  • IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS STUCK,
  • 00:12:47.270 --> 00:12:49.220
  • LIKE HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:12:49.220 --> 00:12:50.200
  • OPTIONS.
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:51.230
  • BUT INSTEAD OF GETTING
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:52.170
  • DISCOURAGED, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:12:52.170 --> 00:12:53.290
  • COMPLAINING, HIS ATTITUDE
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:55.170
  • WAS, "GOD, I DON'T SEE A WAY,
  • 00:12:55.170 --> 00:12:57.130
  • BUT I KNOW YOU HAVE A WAY.
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:59.070
  • I KNOW YOU'RE A RUNNIN'-OVER
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:00.140
  • GOD, A MORE-THAN-ENOUGH GOD,
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.090
  • AN OVERFLOW GOD."
  • 00:13:02.090 --> 00:13:03.060
  • AND LIKE THE BLIND MAN, HE
  • 00:13:03.060 --> 00:13:05.090
  • WAS EXPECTING SOMETHIN'
  • 00:13:05.090 --> 00:13:06.090
  • ORDINARY, SOMETHIN' USUAL,
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:08.060
  • MAYBE THE FARMER WOULD CHANGE
  • 00:13:08.060 --> 00:13:09.180
  • HIS MIND.
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:10.200
  • MAYBE HE'D FIND ANOTHER FARM
  • 00:13:10.200 --> 00:13:12.120
  • WHERE HE COULD FEED THEIR
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:13.080
  • CATTLE.
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:14.120
  • BUT GOD'S WAYS ARE NOT OUR
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:16.070
  • WAYS.
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:17.030
  • THERE ARE SET TIMES WHERE GOD
  • 00:13:17.030 --> 00:13:19.030
  • IS GOING TO EXCEED YOUR
  • 00:13:19.030 --> 00:13:20.180
  • EXPECTATIONS, WHERE HE IS
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:22.050
  • GOING TO SUPERSIZE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:13:22.050 --> 00:13:23.260
  • AND SEVERAL MAJOR DEVELOPERS
  • 00:13:23.260 --> 00:13:26.150
  • WERE INTERESTED IN THIS FARM.
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:28.150
  • IT LOOKED LIKE IT WOULD SELL
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:29.190
  • QUICKLY, AND MAYBE EVEN TURN
  • 00:13:29.190 --> 00:13:31.180
  • OUT TO BE A BIDDING WAR.
  • 00:13:31.180 --> 00:13:33.170
  • BUT THEY FOUND OUT THE
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:34.140
  • PROPERTY WAS IN A FLOOD
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:36.040
  • PLAIN.
  • 00:13:36.040 --> 00:13:36.230
  • AND EVEN THOUGH IT'D NOT
  • 00:13:36.230 --> 00:13:37.270
  • FLOODED THERE IN YEARS AND
  • 00:13:37.270 --> 00:13:38.290
  • YEARS, NO BANK WOULD GIVE
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:40.280
  • ANYONE A LOAN.
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:41.210
  • AND THIS FARMER DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:13:41.210 --> 00:13:43.140
  • ANY OPTIONS, SO HE SOLD THE
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:45.140
  • PROPERTY TO THIS MAN FOR
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:47.080
  • HARDLY ANYTHING.
  • 00:13:47.080 --> 00:13:48.280
  • IT HAD SEVERAL TENANTS ON IT.
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:51.010
  • THEIR RENT NOT ONLY PAYS HIS
  • 00:13:51.010 --> 00:13:52.290
  • MONTHLY PAYMENT, BUT THERE'S
  • 00:13:52.290 --> 00:13:54.230
  • PROFIT LEFT OVER EACH MONTH.
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:57.080
  • SO INSTEAD OF HAVING TO PUT
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:13:58.130
  • HIS MONEY OUT TO PURCHASE THE
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:14:00.070
  • PROPERTY, NOW THEY'RE
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.200
  • ACTUALLY PAYIN' HIM TO TAKE
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:03.230
  • THE PROPERTY.
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:05.000
  • GOD CAN MAKE THINGS HAPPEN
  • 00:14:05.000 --> 00:14:06.280
  • THAT YOU COULD NEVER MAKE
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:07.270
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:08.210
  • ONE TOUCH OF HIS FAVOR WILL
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:10.270
  • PUT YOU AT ANOTHER LEVEL.
  • 00:14:10.270 --> 00:14:12.060
  • AND YOU MAY BE THINKIN',
  • 00:14:12.060 --> 00:14:13.240
  • "ORDINARY."
  • 00:14:13.240 --> 00:14:14.220
  • GOD'S THINKIN', "OVERFLOW."
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:16.170
  • YOU'RE THINKIN', "THE WAY
  • 00:14:16.170 --> 00:14:17.100
  • IT'S ALWAYS BEEN."
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:18.170
  • GOD IS ABOUT TO EXCEED YOUR
  • 00:14:18.170 --> 00:14:20.260
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:22.110
  • HE'S ABOUT TO DO A NEW THING.
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:24.130
  • LIKE THIS MAN, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:25.260
  • TO COME INTO THESE
  • 00:14:25.260 --> 00:14:26.240
  • RUNNIN'-OVER BLESSINGS.
  • 00:14:26.240 --> 00:14:28.190
  • YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO
  • 00:14:28.190 --> 00:14:29.200
  • DO WITH IT.
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:30.110
  • IT'S JUST THE FAVOR OF GOD.
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:32.010
  • IT'S WHAT THE SCRIPTURE TALKS
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.020
  • ABOUT, HOW, "YOU'LL LIVE IN
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.120
  • HOUSES THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:35.280
  • TO BUILD."
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:36.230
  • HOW, "YOU'LL REAP FROM
  • 00:14:36.230 --> 00:14:37.130
  • VINEYARDS THAT YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:14:37.130 --> 00:14:38.170
  • PLANT."
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:39.210
  • THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED IN THE
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:40.230
  • SCRIPTURE TO A YOUNG LADY
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:42.120
  • NAMED RUTH.
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:43.210
  • HER HUSBAND WAS KILLED IN A
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:45.030
  • BATTLE.
  • 00:14:45.030 --> 00:14:45.220
  • AND SHE'D BACK TO HER
  • 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:47.010
  • MOTHER-IN-LAW'S HOMETOWN TO
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:48.210
  • HELP TAKE CARE OF HER.
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:50.090
  • THEY BARELY HAD ENOUGH FOOD
  • 00:14:50.090 --> 00:14:51.200
  • TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:52.270
  • SHE WOULD GO OUT IN THE
  • 00:14:52.270 --> 00:14:53.230
  • FIELDS AND PICK UP THE
  • 00:14:53.230 --> 00:14:55.070
  • LEFTOVER WHEAT THAT THE
  • 00:14:55.070 --> 00:14:56.230
  • WORKERS HAD MISSED.
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:57.240
  • AND ONE DAY, THE OWNER OF THE
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:15:00.020
  • FIELD NOTICED RUTH.
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:01.110
  • HE TOLD HIS WORKERS TO
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:03.160
  • LEAVE HANDFULS OF WHEAT ON
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:05.170
  • PURPOSE FOR RUTH.
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:07.100
  • NOW SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK
  • 00:15:07.100 --> 00:15:08.210
  • NEARLY AS HARD.
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:10.020
  • SHE COULD GATHER UP THE WHEAT
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.060
  • THEY NEEDED IN A FRACTION OF
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.230
  • THE TIME.
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:13.120
  • AND WHEN RUTH WENT OUT EACH
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:15.070
  • MORNING, SHE WAS EXPECTING
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:16.260
  • MORE OF THE SAME.
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:18.060
  • SHE WAS GRATEFUL.
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:19.170
  • GOD WAS MEETING THEIR NEEDS.
  • 00:15:19.170 --> 00:15:21.160
  • BUT GOD IS FULL OF SURPRISES.
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:24.110
  • JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.150
  • REACHED YOUR LIMITS, GOD'S
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:27.050
  • BEEN GOOD TO YOU, YOU'RE
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:28.060
  • SATISFIED, GOD HAS SOMETHIN'
  • 00:15:28.060 --> 00:15:30.160
  • BIGGER IN MIND.
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:31.110
  • AND THE OWNER OF THAT FIELD,
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:33.220
  • BOAZ, WAS ONE OF THE
  • 00:15:33.220 --> 00:15:35.060
  • WEALTHIEST MEN IN THAT AREA.
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:37.180
  • HE FELL IN LOVE WITH RUTH.
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.190
  • THEY ENDED UP GETTING
  • 00:15:39.190 --> 00:15:40.170
  • MARRIED.
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:41.130
  • NOW, INSTEAD OF WORKIN' IN
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:42.240
  • THE FIELD, RUTH OWNED THE
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:44.070
  • FIELD.
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:45.050
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:15:45.050 --> 00:15:45.270
  • GOD SUPERSIZED HER LIFE.
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:48.110
  • THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:50.170
  • BECAUSE RUTH HAD GONE THROUGH
  • 00:15:50.170 --> 00:15:51.290
  • A LOT OF HEARTACHE AND PAIN.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:54.060
  • EARLY AGE, I'M SURE SHE
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:15:57.120
  • THOUGHT, "WOW, LIFE'S NOT
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:15:58.260
  • FAIR.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:15:59.210
  • GOD, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:00.290
  • ME?"
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:01.180
  • IT LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD SEEN
  • 00:16:01.180 --> 00:16:03.000
  • HER BEST DAYS.
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:03.230
  • AND IF SHE WOULD'VE HEARD
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:05.090
  • THIS MESSAGE, SHE COULD'VE
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:06.220
  • SAID, "AH, JOEL, THIS SOUNDS
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:07.260
  • GOOD, BUT GOD'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:09.160
  • SUPERSIZE MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:09.160 --> 00:16:11.050
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH TOO MUCH.
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:12.240
  • THINGS HAVEN'T TURNED OUT THE
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:14.050
  • WAY I HAD PLANNED.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.180
  • I'M CONTENT TO JUST SURVIVE."
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:17.120
  • AND YOU MAY FEEL THAT WAY,
  • 00:16:17.120 --> 00:16:19.280
  • BUT LIKE RUTH, GOD HASN'T
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:21.270
  • FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:23.180
  • HE'S SEEN THE HEARTACHE
  • 00:16:23.180 --> 00:16:24.240
  • YOU'VE ENDURED.
  • 00:16:24.240 --> 00:16:26.020
  • HE'S SEEN THE LONELY NIGHTS,
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:28.060
  • THE UNFAIR SITUATIONS.
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:30.010
  • YOU MAY HAVE ACCEPTED IT, BUT
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:31.290
  • GOD HAS NOT ACCEPTED IT.
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:33.240
  • HE NOT ONLY HAS SOME HANDFULS
  • 00:16:33.240 --> 00:16:35.270
  • ON PURPOSE FOR YOU, HE HAS
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:37.230
  • SOME BOAZES, SOME EXPLOSIVE
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:40.100
  • BLESSINGS THAT ARE GOING TO
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:41.270
  • MAKE UP FOR THE DIFFICULTIES
  • 00:16:41.270 --> 00:16:43.220
  • YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH.
  • 00:16:43.220 --> 00:16:45.090
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO BALANCE THE
  • 00:16:45.090 --> 00:16:47.120
  • BOOKS.
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:48.150
  • YOU MAY HAVE TAKEN A BIG HIT
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:49.290
  • OVER HERE, A BIG LOSS.
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:51.220
  • WELL, GET READY FOR SOME BIG
  • 00:16:51.220 --> 00:16:53.120
  • BLESSINGS.
  • 00:16:53.120 --> 00:16:54.080
  • WHEN HE SUPERSIZES YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:16:58.280
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE SO AMAZED
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.190
  • AT WHERE YOU ARE, YOU DON'T
  • 00:17:00.190 --> 00:17:02.080
  • EVEN THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU'VE
  • 00:17:02.080 --> 00:17:03.120
  • BEEN.
  • 00:17:03.120 --> 00:17:04.220
  • BUT MANY OF YOU CAN SAY, LIKE
  • 00:17:04.220 --> 00:17:05.290
  • ME, THAT YOU'RE LIVING A
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:07.110
  • SUPERSIZED LIFE.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:08.260
  • GOD'S BEEN GOOD TO YOU.
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:10.120
  • YOU NEVER DREAMED YOU WOULD
  • 00:17:10.120 --> 00:17:11.150
  • BE WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:12.220
  • BUT CAN I TELL YA, YOU
  • 00:17:12.220 --> 00:17:14.010
  • HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET.
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:16.010
  • YOU'RE ON THE RUNWAY, ABOUT
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:17.210
  • TO TAKE OFF.
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:18.280
  • YOU'RE JUST GETTING YOUR
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:19.230
  • ENGINES REVVED UP.
  • 00:17:19.230 --> 00:17:21.150
  • YOUR ROCKETS HAVEN'T KICKED
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:22.210
  • IN.
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:23.120
  • YOUR BOOSTERS HAVEN'T
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:24.120
  • ACTIVATED.
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:25.110
  • GOD NEVER PERFORMS HIS
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:26.270
  • GREATEST VICTORIES IN YOUR
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:28.060
  • PAST.
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:29.070
  • THEY'RE ALWAYS IN YOUR
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.020
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:31.020
  • WHY DON'T YOU GET YOUR HOPES
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:32.060
  • UP?
  • 00:17:32.060 --> 00:17:33.020
  • YOU MAY NOT SEE HOW IT CAN
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:34.080
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:34.270
  • BUT HERE'S THE WHOLE KEY: YOU
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:36.160
  • CAN'T SEE WHAT GOD SEES.
  • 00:17:36.160 --> 00:17:39.020
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT GOD
  • 00:17:39.020 --> 00:17:40.040
  • KNOWS.
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.020
  • RUTH COULD'VE SAID, "IT'S NOT
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:42.000
  • GONNA HAPPEN TO ME.
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:42.290
  • I'M A WIDOW TAKING CARE OF
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:44.230
  • ANOTHER WIDOW.
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:46.000
  • WE DON'T HAVE A JOB.
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:47.030
  • WE DON'T HAVE ANY RETIREMENT.
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:48.150
  • WE DON'T HAVE ANY INCOME.
  • 00:17:48.150 --> 00:17:49.260
  • WE'RE DONE."
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:50.290
  • BUT WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:52.210
  • DOESN'T STOP GOD.
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:54.070
  • HE IS NOT LIMITED BY WHAT YOU
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.060
  • THINK YOU'RE LACKING.
  • 00:17:56.060 --> 00:17:57.020
  • "WELL, I DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:58.090
  • RESOURCE.
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:17:58.280
  • I DON'T HAVE THE TALENT, THE
  • 00:17:58.280 --> 00:17:59.230
  • EDUCATION, THE EXPERIENCE."
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.050
  • YOU MAY NOT, BUT GOD DOES.
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:03.070
  • HE HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:05.000
  • GET YOU TO WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:05.290
  • SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:06.190
  • ALL THE ODDS WERE AGAINST
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:09.270
  • RUTH.
  • 00:18:09.270 --> 00:18:10.180
  • IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS DONE,
  • 00:18:10.180 --> 00:18:12.090
  • BUT SHE CAME IN TO THOSE
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:13.190
  • RUNNIN'-OVER BLESSINGS.
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:15.030
  • SHE WENT FROM HAVIN' BARELY
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:16.120
  • ENOUGH TO HAVIN' MORE THAN
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:17.230
  • ENOUGH.
  • 00:18:17.230 --> 00:18:18.120
  • AND HERE'S HOW AMAZING GOD
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:19.280
  • IS.
  • 00:18:19.280 --> 00:18:20.180
  • RUTH MARRIED BOAZ.
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:22.130
  • THEY HAD A SON NAMED OBED.
  • 00:18:22.130 --> 00:18:24.100
  • OBED HAD A SON NAMED JESSE.
  • 00:18:24.100 --> 00:18:26.080
  • JESSE HAD A SON NAMED DAVID.
  • 00:18:26.080 --> 00:18:28.110
  • THAT MEANS THIS YOUNG LADY
  • 00:18:28.110 --> 00:18:30.010
  • THAT LOOKED LIKE HER LIFE WAS
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:31.080
  • OVER, A WIDOW, BARELY MAKIN'
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:33.240
  • IT, GOD NOT ONLY BLESSED HER
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:35.190
  • WITH ABUNDANCE, BUT SHE ENDED
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:37.170
  • UP IN THE FAMILY LINE OF
  • 00:18:37.170 --> 00:18:39.090
  • JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.270
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO MAKE MORE
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:43.080
  • OUT OF YOUR LIFE THAN YOU'VE
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:44.180
  • EVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:46.000
  • QUIT MAKIN' EXCUSES.
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.200
  • QUIT THINKIN' YOU'VE REACHED
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:48.210
  • YOUR LIMITS.
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:49.220
  • GOD HAS SOMETHIN' BIG COMIN'
  • 00:18:49.220 --> 00:18:51.190
  • YOUR WAY.
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:52.210
  • WHAT HE'S GOING TO DO IN YOUR
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:54.010
  • FUTURE IS LIKE NOTHIN' YOU'VE
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:55.240
  • SEEN IN YOUR PAST.
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:57.040
  • IT'S GOING TO EXCEED YOUR
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.210
  • EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:18:59.260
  • IT'S GOING TO BE ABOVE AND
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:01.060
  • BEYOND WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:03.110
  • NOW, THE REAL QUESTION IS,
  • 00:19:03.110 --> 00:19:05.050
  • WILL YOU LET THIS SEED TAKE
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:06.180
  • ROOT?
  • 00:19:06.180 --> 00:19:07.210
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "JESUS
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:09.060
  • COULDN'T DO ANY MIRACLES IN
  • 00:19:09.060 --> 00:19:10.280
  • HIS HOMETOWN BECAUSE OF THEIR
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:12.240
  • UNBELIEF."
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:13.280
  • IT DOESN'T SAY, "HE WOULDN'T
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:14.290
  • DO IT."
  • 00:19:14.290 --> 00:19:15.210
  • IT SAYS, "HE COULDN'T DO IT."
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:17.110
  • AND I WONDER HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:19.190
  • WE'RE STOPPING GOD FROM
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:21.020
  • SUPERSIZING OUR LIFE BECAUSE
  • 00:19:21.020 --> 00:19:23.110
  • WE DON'T BELIEVE IT WILL
  • 00:19:23.110 --> 00:19:24.080
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:25.070
  • WHAT WE CAN SEE, WHAT'S
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:28.130
  • HAPPENED IN THE PAST, TALK US
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:30.040
  • OUT OF IT.
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:31.090
  • YOUR MIND MAY TELL YA THAT,
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.170
  • "YOU'VE REACHED YOUR LIMITS.
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:33.290
  • YOU'VE GONE AS FAR AS YOU CAN
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:35.050
  • GO."
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:35.280
  • BUT IF YOU'LL LISTEN DOWN IN
  • 00:19:35.280 --> 00:19:37.080
  • HERE, YOU'LL HEAR ANOTHER
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:39.000
  • VOICE SAYIN', "INCREASE IS
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:40.190
  • COMIN'.
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:41.140
  • FAVOR IS COMIN'.
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:42.190
  • HEALING IS COMIN'.
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:43.220
  • PROMOTION IS COMING."
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:45.030
  • THAT'S WHY, WHEN YOU HEAR A
  • 00:19:45.030 --> 00:19:46.190
  • MESSAGE LIKE THIS, SOMETHING
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.160
  • COMES ALIVE ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:50.220
  • IT'S THE SEED THAT GOD PUT IN
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:52.180
  • YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:53.070
  • AND WHEN YOU LIVE WITH THIS
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:54.280
  • EXPECTANCY, YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:19:54.280 --> 00:19:57.000
  • THE DAY SAYIN', "GOD, I
  • 00:19:57.000 --> 00:19:58.150
  • BELIEVE YOU CAN TAKE ME WHERE
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:00.010
  • I'VE NEVER DREAMED.
  • 00:20:00.010 --> 00:20:01.100
  • I BELIEVE YOU CAN DO WHAT
  • 00:20:01.100 --> 00:20:02.240
  • MEDICINE CANNOT DO.
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:04.070
  • GOD, I BELIEVE YOU CAN
  • 00:20:04.070 --> 00:20:05.150
  • SUPERSIZE MY LIFE."
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:06.260
  • AND THAT'S WHEN YOU'LL SEE
  • 00:20:06.260 --> 00:20:08.120
  • THE SURPASSING GREATNESS OF
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:10.020
  • GOD'S FAVOR.
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:11.190
  • APPEARED TO A TEENAGE GIRL
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:15.080
  • NAMED MARY.
  • 00:20:15.080 --> 00:20:16.150
  • HE TOLD HER THAT SHE WAS
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:17.170
  • HIGHLY FAVORED, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:19.060
  • GOING TO HAVE A BABY WITHOUT
  • 00:20:19.060 --> 00:20:20.150
  • KNOWIN' A MAN.
  • 00:20:20.150 --> 00:20:21.250
  • MARY WAS KIND OF TAKEN ABACK.
  • 00:20:21.250 --> 00:20:24.110
  • THIS SEEMED FAR OUT AND
  • 00:20:24.110 --> 00:20:25.160
  • UNUSUAL.
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:26.160
  • IT HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.
  • 00:20:26.160 --> 00:20:28.120
  • SHE ASKED THE ANGEL, "HOW
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.150
  • COULD THIS BE?"
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:30.080
  • AND HE EXPLAINED HOW THE
  • 00:20:30.080 --> 00:20:31.250
  • SPIRIT OF THE LORD WOULD COME
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:33.030
  • ON HER AND SHE WOULD
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:34.090
  • CONCEIVE.
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:35.150
  • MARY ACCEPTED IT.
  • 00:20:35.150 --> 00:20:36.230
  • SHE BELIEVED, BUT I'M SURE
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:38.160
  • THERE WERE TIMES THAT SHE
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:39.290
  • STARTED TO DOUBT, THINKIN',
  • 00:20:39.290 --> 00:20:41.190
  • "IS THIS REALLY GOING TO
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:42.170
  • HAPPEN?
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.120
  • THIS SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:44.230
  • TRUE."
  • 00:20:44.230 --> 00:20:45.280
  • SEE, MARY DIDN'T COME FROM AN
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:47.110
  • INFLUENTIAL FAMILY.
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:49.030
  • SHE WASN'T WEALTHY.
  • 00:20:49.030 --> 00:20:50.150
  • SHE DIDN'T HAVE AN IMPRESSIVE
  • 00:20:50.150 --> 00:20:51.190
  • RESUME.
  • 00:20:51.190 --> 00:20:52.150
  • SHE WAS A POOR GIRL LIVING IN
  • 00:20:52.150 --> 00:20:54.180
  • A LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:56.000
  • AND AS SHE WAS DOUBTING, A
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:58.160
  • LITTLE BIT CONFUSED, THE
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:21:00.090
  • ANGEL SAID TO HER IN VERSE
  • 00:21:00.090 --> 00:21:01.250
  • 30: "'MARY, DON'T BE
  • 00:21:01.250 --> 00:21:03.230
  • FRIGHTENED.
  • 00:21:03.230 --> 00:21:04.230
  • GOD HAS DECIDED TO BLESS
  • 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:06.250
  • YOU.'" AND WHEN YOU HEAR THIS
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:08.260
  • PROMISE, THAT GOD IS GOING TO
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:10.240
  • DO EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY
  • 00:21:10.240 --> 00:21:12.120
  • ABOVE AND BEYOND, THAT HE'S
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:13.280
  • GOING TO SUPERSIZE YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:16.100
  • IN A WAY, IT'S LIKE WHAT MARY
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:18.140
  • HEARD.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:19.120
  • IT SEEMS FAR OUT, UNUSUAL.
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:22.030
  • IT'S EASY TO THINK OF ALL THE
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.120
  • REASONS WHY IT'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:21:23.120 --> 00:21:24.260
  • HAPPEN.
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:26.000
  • BUT IF THAT ANGEL WERE TO
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:27.100
  • SHOW UP TODAY, HE WOULD SAY
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:29.060
  • THE SAME THING TO YOU THAT HE
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:30.290
  • SAID TO MARY: "GOD HAS
  • 00:21:30.290 --> 00:21:32.240
  • DECIDED TO BLESS YOU."
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:34.070
  • AND YOU MAY NOT SEE HOW IT
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:36.000
  • CAN HAPPEN.
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:37.040
  • YOU MAY NOT THINK YOU DESERVE
  • 00:21:37.040 --> 00:21:38.120
  • IT.
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:39.020
  • YOU'VE MADE TOO MANY
  • 00:21:39.020 --> 00:21:39.230
  • MISTAKES.
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:40.190
  • YOU'RE TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:41.210
  • YOU'RE TOO OLD.
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:42.200
  • YOU COME FROM THE WRONG
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:43.150
  • FAMILY.
  • 00:21:43.150 --> 00:21:44.100
  • INSTEAD OF DWELLING ON ALL
  • 00:21:44.100 --> 00:21:45.280
  • THAT, WHY DON'T YOU SAY, BY
  • 00:21:45.280 --> 00:21:47.210
  • FAITH, "GOD, I WANNA THANK
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:50.050
  • YOU THAT YOU'VE DECIDED TO
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:51.230
  • BLESS ME.
  • 00:21:51.230 --> 00:21:52.240
  • LORD, THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:53.250
  • DECIDED TO BE GOOD TO ME."
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.040
  • SEE, IT'S ONE THING WHEN WE
  • 00:21:56.040 --> 00:21:58.040
  • DECIDE WE'RE GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:21:59.180
  • HOLD OF GOD'S PROMISES.
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:01.060
  • WE DECIDE WE'RE GONNA LIVE A
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.160
  • BLESSED, ABUNDANT LIFE.
  • 00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:04.060
  • THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:22:04.060 --> 00:22:05.090
  • THAT'S IMPORTANT.
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:06.220
  • BUT WHEN YOU REALIZE THE
  • 00:22:06.220 --> 00:22:08.060
  • CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, THE
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:10.110
  • GOD WHO SPOKE WORLDS INTO
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:11.270
  • EXISTENCE, THE GOD WHO FLUNG
  • 00:22:11.270 --> 00:22:13.190
  • STARS INTO SPACE, HE HAS
  • 00:22:13.190 --> 00:22:15.180
  • DECIDED TO BLESS YOU.
  • 00:22:15.180 --> 00:22:17.170
  • HE HAS DECIDED TO FORGIVE
  • 00:22:17.170 --> 00:22:19.100
  • YOU.
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:20.010
  • HE HAS DECIDED TO FAVOR YOU.
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:23.030
  • HERE'S THE KEY: GOD'S IDEA OF
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:25.080
  • BLESSING YOU IS VERY
  • 00:22:25.080 --> 00:22:26.240
  • DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU THINK
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:28.040
  • BEIN' BLESSED IS.
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:29.110
  • WE THINK, "NATURAL."
  • 00:22:29.110 --> 00:22:30.260
  • GOD THINKS, "SUPERNATURAL."
  • 00:22:30.260 --> 00:22:32.260
  • WE THINK, "LET ME FIND
  • 00:22:32.260 --> 00:22:33.290
  • ANOTHER FARM TO PUT THESE
  • 00:22:33.290 --> 00:22:35.230
  • GRASS CLIPPINGS."
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:36.280
  • GOD THINKS, "HOW 'BOUT I GIVE
  • 00:22:36.280 --> 00:22:38.120
  • YA THAT FARM AND HAVE THEM
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:40.040
  • PAY YOU INSTEAD OF YOU PAYIN'
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:41.160
  • THEM?"
  • 00:22:41.160 --> 00:22:42.200
  • WE THINK, "HANDFULS ON
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:44.070
  • PURPOSE ARE A GREAT
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:45.110
  • BLESSING," AND THEY ARE.
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:47.020
  • BUT GOD THINKS, "HOW 'BOUT I
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:48.150
  • GIVE YOU THE WHOLE FIELD SO
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:50.010
  • YOU OWN ALL THE WHEAT TO
  • 00:22:50.010 --> 00:22:50.280
  • BEGIN WITH?"
  • 00:22:50.280 --> 00:22:52.100
  • WE THINK PRACTICAL TERMS,
  • 00:22:52.100 --> 00:22:54.020
  • SIGNING A 60-YEAR LEASE WITH
  • 00:22:54.020 --> 00:22:56.060
  • THE CITY OF HOUSTON FOR THE
  • 00:22:56.060 --> 00:22:57.140
  • COMPAQ CENTER IS PRETTY
  • 00:22:57.140 --> 00:22:58.290
  • AMAZING, AND IT IS.
  • 00:22:58.290 --> 00:23:00.260
  • BUT GOD THINKS, "HOW 'BOUT I
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:02.140
  • GET RID OF THAT LEASE SO YOU
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:04.040
  • COULD HAVE THE BUILDING FOR
  • 00:23:04.040 --> 00:23:05.050
  • GENERATIONS TO COME?"
  • 00:23:05.050 --> 00:23:06.080
  • LIKE GOD DID FOR US.
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:09.130
  • THAT'S THE RUNNIN'-OVER GOD,
  • 00:23:09.130 --> 00:23:11.290
  • THE MORE-THAN-ENOUGH GOD, THE
  • 00:23:11.290 --> 00:23:14.150
  • EXCEED-YOUR-EXPECTATIONS GOD.
  • 00:23:14.150 --> 00:23:15.220
  • A FEW DAYS AFTER THE ANGEL
  • 00:23:15.220 --> 00:23:17.240
  • APPEARED, MARY WENT TO SEE
  • 00:23:17.240 --> 00:23:19.140
  • HER COUSIN ELIZABETH.
  • 00:23:19.140 --> 00:23:21.060
  • ELIZABETH SAID, "MARY, YOU
  • 00:23:21.060 --> 00:23:22.250
  • ARE BLESSED BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:24.170
  • BELIEVED GOD WOULD DO WHAT HE
  • 00:23:24.170 --> 00:23:26.100
  • SAID."
  • 00:23:26.100 --> 00:23:27.200
  • GOD DECIDED TO BLESS MARY,
  • 00:23:27.200 --> 00:23:29.280
  • BUT WHAT ACTIVATED THE
  • 00:23:29.280 --> 00:23:31.060
  • BLESSING, WHAT ALLOWED IT TO
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:32.280
  • HAPPEN, WAS SHE BELIEVED SHE
  • 00:23:32.280 --> 00:23:35.070
  • WOULD BLESSED.
  • 00:23:35.070 --> 00:23:36.160
  • IF SHE'D HAVE GONE AROUND
  • 00:23:36.160 --> 00:23:37.150
  • THINKIN', "OH, THIS IS
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:38.050
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:23:38.050 --> 00:23:39.050
  • IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:23:39.050 --> 00:23:40.140
  • I NEVER GET ANY GOOD BREAKS.
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:41.200
  • BESIDES, I'M NOT EVEN
  • 00:23:41.200 --> 00:23:42.170
  • QUALIFIED."
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:43.170
  • SHE COULD'VE TALKED HERSELF
  • 00:23:43.170 --> 00:23:44.270
  • OUT OF WHAT GOD HAD ALREADY
  • 00:23:44.270 --> 00:23:46.290
  • DECIDED.
  • 00:23:46.290 --> 00:23:47.180
  • AND WHEN GOD SAYS HE'S GOING
  • 00:23:47.180 --> 00:23:49.210
  • TO DO EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY
  • 00:23:49.210 --> 00:23:51.150
  • SAYS, "AS FOR YOU AND YOUR
  • 00:23:53.150 --> 00:23:54.280
  • HOUSE, YOU WILL SERVE THE
  • 00:23:54.280 --> 00:23:56.060
  • LORD," WHEN HE SAYS HE'S
  • 00:23:56.060 --> 00:23:57.270
  • GOING TO RESTORE HEALTH BACK
  • 00:23:57.270 --> 00:23:59.120
  • INTO YOU, THAT MEANS GOD HAS
  • 00:23:59.120 --> 00:24:01.210
  • ALREADY DECIDED IT.
  • 00:24:01.210 --> 00:24:03.080
  • NOW, MY CHALLENGE IS DON'T
  • 00:24:03.080 --> 00:24:05.110
  • TALK YOURSELF OUT OF WHAT GOD
  • 00:24:05.110 --> 00:24:07.200
  • HAS ALREADY DECIDED FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:07.200 --> 00:24:10.060
  • WELL, YOU SAY, "JOEL, THIS
  • 00:24:10.060 --> 00:24:11.020
  • SOUNDS GOOD, BUT I'M 75 YEARS
  • 00:24:11.020 --> 00:24:13.090
  • OLD.
  • 00:24:13.090 --> 00:24:13.290
  • I STILL HADN'T BEEN
  • 00:24:13.290 --> 00:24:14.180
  • SUPERSIZED."
  • 00:24:14.180 --> 00:24:15.130
  • THERE'S STILL TIME FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:15.130 --> 00:24:17.020
  • MOSES WAS 80 WHEN HE STARTED
  • 00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:19.200
  • HE DIDN'T SEE THE RED SEA
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:22.290
  • PART, THOSE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:24:22.290 --> 00:24:24.220
  • SIGNS THAT GOD SHOWED TO
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:25.290
  • PHARAOH, UNTIL MUCH LATER IN
  • 00:24:25.290 --> 00:24:28.050
  • LIFE.
  • 00:24:28.050 --> 00:24:29.060
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE ALIVE UNLESS
  • 00:24:29.060 --> 00:24:30.250
  • GOD HAD SOMETHIN' AMAZING UP
  • 00:24:30.250 --> 00:24:32.120
  • IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:24:32.120 --> 00:24:34.000
  • "WELL, I DON'T WANNA GET MY
  • 00:24:34.000 --> 00:24:34.280
  • HOPES UP.
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:36.030
  • THAT WAY, IF IT DOESN'T
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:36.250
  • HAPPEN, I WON'T BE
  • 00:24:36.250 --> 00:24:37.190
  • DISAPPOINTED."
  • 00:24:37.190 --> 00:24:38.230
  • THE PROBLEM WITH THAT
  • 00:24:38.230 --> 00:24:39.200
  • APPROACH IS IF YOU DON'T GET
  • 00:24:39.200 --> 00:24:41.130
  • YOUR HOPES UP, YOU WILL BE
  • 00:24:41.130 --> 00:24:42.290
  • DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:24:42.290 --> 00:24:44.010
  • YOU'LL MISS THE EXCEEDING
  • 00:24:44.010 --> 00:24:45.070
  • GREATNESS OF GOD'S FAVOR THAT
  • 00:24:45.070 --> 00:24:47.000
  • BELONGS TO YOU.
  • 00:24:47.000 --> 00:24:48.170
  • I'VE SEEN THIS IN MY OWN
  • 00:24:48.170 --> 00:24:49.260
  • LIFE.
  • 00:24:49.260 --> 00:24:50.220
  • GOD HAS TAKEN ME FROM BEHIND
  • 00:24:50.220 --> 00:24:52.040
  • THE SCENES ALL THOSE YEARS,
  • 00:24:52.040 --> 00:24:53.160
  • AND BROUGHT GIFTS OUT OF ME
  • 00:24:53.160 --> 00:24:55.040
  • THAT I DIDN'T KNOW I HAD, AND
  • 00:24:55.040 --> 00:24:56.170
  • PUT ME IN FRONT OF A LOT OF
  • 00:24:56.170 --> 00:24:57.210
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:57.210 --> 00:24:58.120
  • I CAN TELL YA FIRSTHAND, GOD
  • 00:24:58.120 --> 00:25:00.140
  • KNOWS HOW TO SUPERSIZE YOUR
  • 00:25:00.140 --> 00:25:02.030
  • LIFE.
  • 00:25:02.030 --> 00:25:03.020
  • IT WASN'T BECAUSE I HAVE ALL
  • 00:25:03.020 --> 00:25:04.090
  • THIS TALENT, EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:25:04.090 --> 00:25:05.290
  • ABILITY.
  • 00:25:05.290 --> 00:25:06.180
  • IT'S BECAUSE I'VE DONE MY
  • 00:25:06.180 --> 00:25:08.140
  • BEST TO HONOR GOD, AND I
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:10.110
  • DARED TO BELIEVE WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:25:10.110 --> 00:25:12.160
  • ALREADY DECIDED FOR ME.
  • 00:25:12.160 --> 00:25:14.210
  • WHEN MY DAD WENT TO BE WITH
  • 00:25:14.210 --> 00:25:15.220
  • THE LORD IN 1999, I COULD
  • 00:25:15.220 --> 00:25:18.000
  • HEAR GOD SAYIN', "JOEL, STEP
  • 00:25:18.000 --> 00:25:19.100
  • UP.
  • 00:25:19.100 --> 00:25:19.290
  • PASTOR THE CHURCH."
  • 00:25:19.290 --> 00:25:21.120
  • I DIDN'T THINK I COULD DO IT.
  • 00:25:21.120 --> 00:25:23.010
  • EVERY VOICE SAID, "YOU'RE
  • 00:25:23.010 --> 00:25:24.020
  • MAKIN' A MISTAKE."
  • 00:25:24.020 --> 00:25:25.160
  • BUT DEEP DOWN, I KNEW THAT IF
  • 00:25:25.160 --> 00:25:27.220
  • GOD HAD DECIDED IT, I WASN'T
  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:30.000
  • GOING TO GO BY WHAT I FELT,
  • 00:25:30.000 --> 00:25:31.240
  • BY WHAT I SAW, BY WHAT PEOPLE
  • 00:25:31.240 --> 00:25:33.130
  • WERE TELLIN' ME.
  • 00:25:33.130 --> 00:25:34.100
  • I SIMPLY CHOSE TO GET IN
  • 00:25:34.100 --> 00:25:36.020
  • AGREEMENT WITH GOD, TO
  • 00:25:36.020 --> 00:25:37.120
  • BELIEVE WHAT HE HAD ALREADY
  • 00:25:37.120 --> 00:25:38.230
  • DECIDED FOR ME.
  • 00:25:38.230 --> 00:25:40.170
  • THAT'S WHEN GOD WILL
  • 00:25:40.170 --> 00:25:41.170
  • SUPERSIZE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:41.170 --> 00:25:43.090
  • THAT'S WHEN HE'LL TAKE YOU
  • 00:25:43.090 --> 00:25:44.190
  • PLACES THAT YOU'VE NEVER
  • 00:25:44.190 --> 00:25:45.160
  • DREAMED.
  • 00:25:45.160 --> 00:25:46.180
  • FRIENDS, GOD HAS ALREADY MADE
  • 00:25:46.180 --> 00:25:48.110
  • HIS DECISION.
  • 00:25:48.110 --> 00:25:49.200
  • HE'S ALREADY DECIDED TO BLESS
  • 00:25:49.200 --> 00:25:51.180
  • YOU, TO FORGIVE YOU, TO TAKE
  • 00:25:51.180 --> 00:25:53.210
  • YOU FURTHER THAN YOU CAN
  • 00:25:53.210 --> 00:25:54.280
  • IMAGINE.
  • 00:25:54.280 --> 00:25:56.000
  • NOW IT'S UP TO YOU.
  • 00:25:56.000 --> 00:25:57.210
  • WHAT'S YOU DECIDE WILL
  • 00:25:57.210 --> 00:25:59.050
  • DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT IT
  • 00:25:59.050 --> 00:26:00.250
  • HAPPENS.
  • 00:26:00.250 --> 00:26:01.230
  • I'M ASKIN' YOU TO TAKE THE
  • 00:26:01.230 --> 00:26:03.120
  • LIMITS OFF OF GOD.
  • 00:26:03.120 --> 00:26:04.290
  • QUIT MAKIN' EXCUSES.
  • 00:26:04.290 --> 00:26:06.180
  • IF YOU'LL DO THIS, I BELIEVE
  • 00:26:06.180 --> 00:26:08.150
  • AND DECLARE YOU'RE ABOUT TO
  • 00:26:08.150 --> 00:26:10.000
  • COME IN TO THOSE RUNNIN'-OVER
  • 00:26:10.000 --> 00:26:11.220
  • BLESSINGS.
  • 00:26:11.220 --> 00:26:12.200
  • GOD IS GOING TO SUPERSIZE
  • 00:26:12.200 --> 00:26:14.170
  • WHAT YOU'RE BELIEVIN' FOR.
  • 00:26:14.170 --> 00:26:16.010
  • YOU MAY BE EXPECTING THE
