  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • God told me all last night "If they want to run
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:09.240
  • "let them run."
  • 00:01:09.240 --> 00:01:11.060

  • Shout I got a new attitude.
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:04.000
  • - [Audience] I got a new attitude!
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:06.040
  • - Push somebody and say
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:07.090
  • I ain't leaving out here the same way.
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:09.000

  • - [Audience] You can stay broke all you want to,
  • 00:02:14.260 --> 00:02:16.160
  • I ain't staying broke.
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:17.250
  • - You spirit of unforgiveness, get off of him!
  • 00:02:17.250 --> 00:02:21.070
  • They've been bound too long!
  • 00:02:22.010 --> 00:02:24.150
  • They letting the whole thing go!
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:26.100
  • They gonna walk foot loose and fancy free tonight!
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:30.030
  • And boy I would crack open packs of Kool-aid.
  • 00:02:37.000 --> 00:02:40.150
  • And you know we didn't have all the same flavors.
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:44.160
  • So the strawberry, the grape, the orange,
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:49.130
  • the raspberry, all of it going in there.
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:52.090
  • And you know the Kool-aid wasn't cool
  • 00:02:53.160 --> 00:02:54.290
  • unless it had a lot of aid.
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:57.120
  • What was the aid?
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:59.140
  • That sugar.
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:00.220
  • Some of y'all paying for that right now.
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:03.040
  • And we didn't have measuring tools or utensil.
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:09.120
  • So we just took the bag.
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:11.250
  • I wish you were that liberal with your attitude.
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:19.050
  • And your confession, you just poor it on Glory to God.
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:23.040
  • Back in the day when you had a whole lot of people over
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:28.030
  • to your house you couldn't use the regular pitcher.
  • 00:03:28.030 --> 00:03:31.190
  • You had to pull out the collard green pot.
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:34.010
  • That thing with two handles is about this deep.
  • 00:03:35.100 --> 00:03:38.020
  • Roll up that sleeve.
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:42.160
  • Cause you ain't have spoons long enough
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:45.060
  • to get to the bottom.
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:46.170
  • Somebody know what I'm talking about.
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:49.250
  • Stir that Kool-aid up.
  • 00:03:53.080 --> 00:03:55.120
  • And then watch this.
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:03:57.220
  • I found out who the real Kool-aid makers are.
  • 00:03:57.220 --> 00:04:00.150
  • Did you taste?
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.010
  • You got.
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:07.040
  • And what you do, you put it.
  • 00:04:07.290 --> 00:04:09.290
  • Ain't had no integrity cause you act like you washed
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.120
  • off the spoon when somebody come around.
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:26.130
  • Why'd you stir it up?
  • 00:04:34.060 --> 00:04:36.020
  • Because you had to agitate
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:39.000
  • that aid that was poured into the Kool-aid.
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:43.110
  • So that the entire content
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:46.020
  • of that collard green pot would be sweet.
  • 00:04:46.020 --> 00:04:49.070
  • Without stirring it it would stay to the bottom.
  • 00:04:49.250 --> 00:04:52.170
  • You will never know that the stuff was already
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:55.120
  • in there until you get almost to the bottom of it.
  • 00:04:55.120 --> 00:04:59.090
  • And unfortunately, that's what's going on
  • 00:05:02.140 --> 00:05:05.220
  • with the believers life.
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:07.200
  • God has already poured into you.
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:11.210
  • Everything that pertaineth to life in Godliness!
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:18.080
  • The good life.
  • 00:05:18.290 --> 00:05:20.190
  • The abundant life!
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.260
  • Peace, joy, longs!
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:27.070
  • I'm preaching boy!
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:29.010
  • All the money and wisdom that you ever need.
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:37.160
  • The ability to get wealth.
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:40.060
  • And he told me he said this,
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:44.040
  • "Son there are a lot of believers.
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:46.270
  • "Just like unstirred Kool-aid.
  • 00:05:46.270 --> 00:05:49.190
  • "They gonna wait til they get to almost
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:53.070
  • "the end of their life and realize
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:56.060
  • "they could've had a sweet life all the way through.
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:59.220
  • "All they needed son was somebody to."
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:03.080
  • Look at your neighbor and say
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:07.100
  • pastor here to stir you up tonight.
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.280
  • - [Audience] Pastor here to stir you up tonight.
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:10.290
  • - What happened to your dream?!
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:12.290
  • What happened to your vision?!
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:15.100
  • Pastors who are sitting here.
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:22.230
  • You used to talk about a new facility.
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:27.160
  • You know you know.
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:29.180
  • You just ain't talking like you used to.
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:33.150
  • Turn to your neighbor and say
  • 00:06:35.090 --> 00:06:36.190
  • I'm getting back to talking like God.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:39.110
  • - [Audience] I'm getting back to talking like God.
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:42.130
  • - Come on, let's get back to the word.
  • 00:06:45.090 --> 00:06:46.140
  • Let's look at this.
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.190
  • Where are we, verse six?
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:50.240
  • Verse five, let's back up.
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:56.170
  • Ready read.
  • 00:06:56.170 --> 00:06:57.280
  • Uh huh.
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:00.280
  • Now how did they go to the camp of Syrian?
  • 00:07:02.040 --> 00:07:05.230
  • What happened to cause that?
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:08.000
  • They decided,
  • 00:07:08.000 --> 00:07:09.090
  • that if we stay out of the game,
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:13.030
  • we gonna die.
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:15.070
  • But if we get in the game,
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:17.180
  • and we die so what?
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:19.020
  • We still dead.
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:20.120
  • But,
  • 00:07:21.020 --> 00:07:22.090
  • If something happens to work on our behalf.
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:29.010
  • The person who
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:40.100
  • is in obedience to be where you're supposed to be
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:46.200
  • is waiting on you.
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:49.090
  • You ever got up and got into place
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:56.140
  • where somebody paid for your groceries
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:08:00.090
  • or paid for your meal at the restaurant
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:03.160
  • or paid for your gas at the pump?
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:06.060
  • Or just gave you some money because,
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:09.170
  • you know, I just felt like giving you that?
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:12.120
  • That person would've been there
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:15.060
  • even if you had not shown up.
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:17.230
  • It doesn't look like there's provision where you go.
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:21.190
  • No, you gotta understand what I'm saying.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:23.290
  • You think this is all coincidental.
  • 00:08:23.290 --> 00:08:27.170
  • You think this is just by happenstance.
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:30.090
  • That when you pull up to the gas station,
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.210
  • there's somebody else at the gas station
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:34.260
  • and God already prepared them
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:37.120
  • to pay for your gas.
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:40.170
  • Now a lot of times we just aren't where we're
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:43.280
  • supposed to be cause we're sitting around moping.
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:47.090
  • Classic example, I was driving the car
  • 00:08:52.030 --> 00:08:55.150
  • and I looked and I said I need some gas.
  • 00:08:55.150 --> 00:08:58.210
  • And I pull up to the pump.
  • 00:08:59.100 --> 00:09:02.000
  • And when I'm pulling up to the pump I'm saying
  • 00:09:02.000 --> 00:09:04.190
  • oh snap, I don't even have my credit card.
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:07.240
  • I didn't have a single dime in my pocket.
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:11.250
  • And that needle was kissing that E.
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:16.190
  • You ever have the needle that kiss the E?
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:20.050
  • I mean flat right out lay on that E.
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:23.130
  • And low and behold Sister Bridget.
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:26.260
  • I pulled up and my daughter
  • 00:09:26.260 --> 00:09:30.040
  • and her husband are at the gas station.
  • 00:09:30.040 --> 00:09:33.030
  • And I said look over here Glory to God.
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:38.130
  • You think that was just by happenstance?
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:44.210
  • Pastor go to your building tomorrow.
  • 00:09:46.180 --> 00:09:48.250
  • The building you've been believing God for.
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:51.280
  • Talk to the thing!
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:57.040
  • I call you into the body of Christ!
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:10:01.110
  • As I was rejoicing Pastor,
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:07.290
  • I was rejoicing about seeing Brittney,
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:11.070
  • unbeknownst to me, Brittney was rejoicing about seeing me.
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:15.240
  • Oh Glory, oh shama, that was daddy!
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:19.220
  • That girl was thinking,
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:22.160
  • "Oh honey daddy will take care of our gas."
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:26.130
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:29.000
  • That's what daddy's do.
  • 00:10:35.070 --> 00:10:36.240
  • And low and behold,
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.050
  • she sense something on her and says,
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:47.040
  • "No before he try to pay for our gas,
  • 00:10:47.040 --> 00:10:51.120
  • "pay for his gas."
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:52.280
  • Now what they didn't know!
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:55.100
  • Ah see, see you didn't get it.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:02.240
  • You didn't get it.
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:04.050
  • What you don't know is there are people
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:08.190
  • that are assigned
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:10.150
  • to help you get to the next level!
  • 00:11:10.150 --> 00:11:14.080
  • All you gotta do is show up!
  • 00:11:14.080 --> 00:11:17.020

  • "Run back there and put your credit card
  • 00:11:53.290 --> 00:11:57.180
  • "in the pump before daddy puts his credit card in the pump.
  • 00:11:57.200 --> 00:12:01.000
  • "Beat him to it!"
  • 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:02.190
