  • - female announcer: Coming up
  • 00:00:08.080 --> 00:00:08.280
  • on "The Potter's Touch."
  • 00:00:08.280 --> 00:00:10.030
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes:
  • 00:00:10.030 --> 00:00:10.280
  • What are you gonna do
  • 00:00:10.280 --> 00:00:11.210
  • with greatness?
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:13.190
  • You're asking for more
  • 00:00:13.190 --> 00:00:15.200
  • and you haven't mastered less.
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:19.120
  • The Bible said if you are
  • 00:00:19.120 --> 00:00:20.280
  • faithful over a few things, then
  • 00:00:23.120 --> 00:00:26.120
  • I will make you ruler over many.
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:30.100
  • And you're trying to be ruler
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:31.220
  • over many and you haven't been
  • 00:00:31.220 --> 00:00:33.150
  • faithful over few.
  • 00:00:33.150 --> 00:00:35.150
  • But if you keep on working on
  • 00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:36.180
  • what you are, what you shall be
  • 00:00:37.130 --> 00:00:40.130
  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:57.230
  • - Pastor Cora Jakes-Coleman:
  • 00:01:02.100 --> 00:01:03.040
  • Hi, everyone, thank you
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:03.290
  • for tuning in to,
  • 00:01:03.290 --> 00:01:04.280
  • "The Potter's Touch,"
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:05.260
  • I'm Pastor Cora-Jakes Coleman.
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:07.070
  • God is not going to grant you
  • 00:01:07.070 --> 00:01:09.030
  • dominion over vast physical
  • 00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:11.010
  • or spiritual territory without
  • 00:01:11.010 --> 00:01:13.030
  • you first proving yourself
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:14.210
  • to be faithful with what
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.030
  • he has already given you.
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:18.030
  • Today, my father will show us
  • 00:01:18.030 --> 00:01:19.240
  • the importance
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:20.280
  • of our faithfulness
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:21.290
  • in his message called,
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:23.080
  • - Bishop Jakes: So, Paul says,
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:32.040
  • "I operate within my measure."
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:38.050
  • My wife says all the time,
  • 00:01:38.050 --> 00:01:39.030
  • "Everybody's much
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:40.030
  • is much to them."
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:43.130
  • You can't handle my much,
  • 00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:46.280
  • you can only handle your much.
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:49.040
  • And then, when it becomes
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:49.270
  • too much, too much for you
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:51.160
  • might not be too much for me.
  • 00:01:51.240 --> 00:01:54.240
  • So, don't stop me 'cause
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:56.110
  • you're tired, you gotta find
  • 00:01:59.260 --> 00:02:02.280
  • your own measure.
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:04.270
  • You'd be surprised at the people
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.040
  • in this room, 20, 30 years old
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:07.190
  • have not found their own
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:08.280
  • measure.
  • 00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:11.110
  • Either volunteering for
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.140
  • everything until they're not
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:13.220
  • good at anything, spreading
  • 00:02:13.220 --> 00:02:16.160
  • themselves so thin that nobody
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:18.010
  • is really getting the full
  • 00:02:18.010 --> 00:02:19.200
  • impact of you because you can't
  • 00:02:19.200 --> 00:02:22.010
  • focus.
  • 00:02:22.010 --> 00:02:24.150
  • I'm setting myself up to fail
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:25.230
  • because I'm operating beyond
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:28.280
  • my measure.
  • 00:02:28.280 --> 00:02:30.030
  • And the problem with it is,
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:31.120
  • sometimes we make--other people
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:32.290
  • make what they do look so good
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:34.080
  • that we go from admiring it and
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:36.160
  • being inspiring by it to wanting
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:39.000
  • to imitate it.
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:41.100
  • Don't forsake your lane for
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:43.070
  • mine, your calling for mine,
  • 00:02:45.070 --> 00:02:48.070
  • your gift for mine,
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:48.280
  • you need to focus.
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:52.130
  • Jeremiah says, and I love this
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:53.210
  • Scripture, "If thou has run with
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:55.210
  • the footmen, and they have
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:03:00.050
  • wearied thee, then how canst
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:03.160
  • thou contend with the horses,"
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:07.080
  • "If thou has run with the
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:12.010
  • footmen," you runnin' with other
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:15.110
  • guys and they wore you out,
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:18.080
  • then why would you jump up and
  • 00:03:18.080 --> 00:03:19.120
  • get yourself in a horse race?
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:23.050
  • I wanna break it down
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:23.270
  • so you get it.
  • 00:03:23.270 --> 00:03:25.200
  • If you are tired from runnin'
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:28.250
  • with short-legged humans,
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.120
  • don't sign up in a horse race,
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:36.280
  • because you don't have the
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:38.170
  • strength to play on that level.
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:44.000
  • When you say to God,
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:45.080
  • "I'm sick of this,
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:46.070
  • I can't handle this,"
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:47.030
  • you're saying,
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.070
  • "I can't handle promotion."
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:53.090
  • 'Cause if the footmen wore
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.160
  • you out, I don't care how much
  • 00:03:54.160 --> 00:03:57.100
  • you admire horses,
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:03:59.090
  • ain't no need in you signing up
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:00.160
  • to get into a horse race.
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:03.240
  • Until you master
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.180
  • the footmen race, you don't get
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:09.080
  • into the horse race,
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.170
  • and here's the problem.
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:12.010
  • We got people who want promotion
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:14.190
  • without process.
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:18.200
  • Oh my God, I feel like runnin'
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:20.110
  • all over this church, they want
  • 00:04:20.110 --> 00:04:22.140
  • promotion without process.
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:26.080
  • Because the reason they want
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:27.260
  • promotion is because they have
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.270
  • no self-esteem, so they need
  • 00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:32.110
  • crowd-esteem to feel good
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:35.020
  • about themselves, and they think
  • 00:04:35.020 --> 00:04:37.080
  • that if they get promoted high
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:38.200
  • enough, then people will like
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:40.250
  • them and then maybe
  • 00:04:40.250 --> 00:04:42.230
  • they'll like themselves,
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:44.060
  • you got it backwards.
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:45.120
  • You gotta like yourself first.
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:54.230
  • Are you following
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:55.100
  • what I'm saying?
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:04:56.230
  • And then you're gonna be
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:57.160
  • excellent at what
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:04:58.160
  • you're gonna do,
  • 00:04:58.160 --> 00:04:59.070
  • and then you find greatness when
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:00.210
  • you have maximized smallness.
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:06.060
  • If you're weary with smallness,
  • 00:05:08.210 --> 00:05:11.210
  • and you're tired all the time,
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:14.010
  • and you can't focus, what are
  • 00:05:14.010 --> 00:05:15.210
  • you gonna do with greatness?
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:18.180
  • You're asking for more, and you
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:20.220
  • haven't mastered less.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:24.070
  • The Bible said if you are
  • 00:05:24.070 --> 00:05:25.250
  • faithful over a few things, then
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:31.000
  • I will make you ruler over many,
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:35.060
  • and you're trying to be ruler
  • 00:05:35.060 --> 00:05:36.080
  • over many and you haven't been
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:38.040
  • faithful over few.
  • 00:05:38.040 --> 00:05:40.200
  • You're so busy reaching out to
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:42.110
  • your future that you are
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:44.000
  • neglecting what you have been
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:45.290
  • given right now.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:48.070
  • Oh God, oh God, oh God, I just
  • 00:05:48.140 --> 00:05:51.140
  • felt somebody's toes up under my
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:53.170
  • foot right now.
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:56.140
  • You are so busy trying to
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:57.290
  • progress that you are neglecting
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:06:01.010
  • where you are, that's not how
  • 00:06:01.010 --> 00:06:03.200
  • you progress.
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:05.160
  • You master where you are and
  • 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:08.140
  • then you get promoted to where
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:10.150
  • you're going, you don't neglect
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:12.220
  • where you are trying to reach
  • 00:06:12.220 --> 00:06:15.060
  • after where you're going.
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:16.210
  • Because if you were sloppy
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:18.050
  • yesterday, you're gonna be
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:19.220
  • sloppy today, and you're gonna
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:21.130
  • be sloppy forevermore.
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:23.020
  • If you learn how to do great
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:24.070
  • things in a small place, you're
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:26.060
  • gonna do great things in a
  • 00:06:26.060 --> 00:06:27.210
  • larger place, and you're gonna
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:29.080
  • be great over here.
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:32.190
  • Why come y'all not runnin'
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:33.180
  • all over the church right now,
  • 00:06:33.180 --> 00:06:34.290
  • dancin', fallin' out,
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:36.030
  • The reason you're not getting
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:50.040
  • the promotion is because you
  • 00:06:50.050 --> 00:06:53.050
  • won't make the practice.
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:58.100
  • You cannot play the Super Bowl
  • 00:06:59.040 --> 00:07:02.060
  • if you don't make the practice.
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:05.160
  • You cannot get the prize for
  • 00:07:05.160 --> 00:07:08.010
  • winning the Olympics if you
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:09.220
  • don't make the practice.
  • 00:07:09.220 --> 00:07:12.050
  • If you don't see God's glory in
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:14.220
  • rehearsal, you won't see God's
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:18.020
  • glory in recital.
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:23.130
  • Now, the recital is that
  • 00:07:23.130 --> 00:07:24.130
  • wonderful, big, sexy, amazing
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:25.230
  • thing where everybody claps when
  • 00:07:25.230 --> 00:07:27.030
  • you perform, and the rehearsal
  • 00:07:27.030 --> 00:07:29.010
  • is that private, boring, painful
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.230
  • thing where you struggle to get
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:33.090
  • it together and there's nobody
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:35.210
  • there to clap at all.
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:38.220
  • Can you play without clapping?
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:41.150
  • To those of you that are
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:42.040
  • building, and believing, and
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:43.050
  • really have a purpose, and you
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:44.160
  • really feel the pull of destiny,
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:45.290
  • you need to be patient with the
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:50.000
  • process and not enthralled with
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:53.110
  • the promise.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:55.200
  • You want the acrudaments of
  • 00:07:55.200 --> 00:07:56.180
  • success and that's what's
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:57.170
  • killing you.
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.060
  • You compromise the rehearsal
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:02.020
  • time and bought the tuxedo for
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:06.190
  • the recital, now you look like

  • Somebody say, "Wrong focus."
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:23.030
  • Could it be possible that your
  • 00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:24.080
  • life is stagnated because you
  • 00:08:25.110 --> 00:08:28.110
  • have an attention deficit?
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:35.230
  • You didn't give the attention to
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.030
  • it that it takes to win it.
  • 00:08:37.140 --> 00:08:40.140
  • That doesn't mean that you
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:41.200
  • aren't called to it, it means
  • 00:08:41.200 --> 00:08:44.070
  • that you are starving your
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:45.250
  • destiny of the attention that it
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:48.240
  • needs for you to progress.
  • 00:08:51.110 --> 00:08:54.110
  • Jesus was fully committed,
  • 00:08:54.110 --> 00:08:57.030
  • he picked people
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:57.250
  • who were committed.
  • 00:08:57.250 --> 00:08:59.250
  • Everybody Jesus called
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:01.120
  • to ministry was working.
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:03.230
  • He didn't pick nobody who was
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:05.120
  • laid off and needed a job.
  • 00:09:07.090 --> 00:09:10.090
  • He interrupted people who were
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:12.020
  • working at something and said,
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:14.120
  • "If you follow me, I'm gonna
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:17.090
  • take you to the next dimension."
  • 00:09:17.280 --> 00:09:20.280
  • How many are ready to go
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:21.160
  • to the next dimension?
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:25.170
  • You see, the next dimension
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:28.050
  • isn't foreign from this
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:30.170
  • dimension, it's an escalation
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:33.210
  • of a process that
  • 00:09:33.210 --> 00:09:35.120
  • was already in motion.
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:37.290
  • Peter, you've been casting your
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.130
  • nets out here and catching fish.
  • 00:09:41.280 --> 00:09:44.280
  • You have been teaching other
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:46.130
  • fishermen how to catch fish.
  • 00:09:47.010 --> 00:09:50.010
  • I'm getting ready
  • 00:09:50.010 --> 00:09:51.060
  • to make you fishers of men.
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:54.170
  • The results will be different,
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:57.050
  • the effort will be different,
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.110
  • but the process is still
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:00.280
  • the same.
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:03.210
  • You're still gonna be teaching
  • 00:10:03.210 --> 00:10:05.100
  • other people, you're still gonna
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:07.090
  • be throwing out your net,
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:09.110
  • you're still gonna be bringing
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:10.160
  • in the drought, but
  • 00:10:10.160 --> 00:10:11.290
  • instead of catching fish,
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:15.020
  • you're gonna catch souls.
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:16.280
  • Your future is
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:18.180
  • in some way kin to your past.
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:25.030
  • Oh, y'all aren't gonna talk
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:25.200
  • to me today.
  • 00:10:25.200 --> 00:10:27.280
  • Everything you are going to be,
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:30.210
  • you already are in another form.
  • 00:10:31.070 --> 00:10:34.070
  • You are the acorn
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:36.190
  • of an oak tree.
  • 00:10:37.180 --> 00:10:40.180
  • Acorn doesn't look anything like
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:41.250
  • an oak tree.
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:44.120
  • It doesn't remotely look like it
  • 00:10:44.120 --> 00:10:45.240
  • would ever have branches, and
  • 00:10:45.240 --> 00:10:47.060
  • leaves, and be productive, it's
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:49.070
  • just a nut, an acorn is a nut.
  • 00:10:49.260 --> 00:10:52.260
  • But everything that an oak tree
  • 00:10:52.260 --> 00:10:55.070
  • is, is in the acorn, even though
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:58.130
  • it hadn't shaped out yet.
  • 00:10:58.130 --> 00:11:01.120
  • So, everything that the acorn
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:03.030
  • will ever be is already in that
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:06.270
  • nut, and everything that you
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:09.210
  • will ever be is already in you
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:12.100
  • right now.
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:15.250
  • And the best people to be around
  • 00:11:15.250 --> 00:11:17.090
  • are people who see it in you,
  • 00:11:18.150 --> 00:11:21.150
  • even though you don't look like
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.220
  • a tree yet.
  • 00:11:22.220 --> 00:11:24.140
  • I'm lookin' for somebody who
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:25.140
  • All of that was in me all the
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:35.100
  • time.
  • 00:11:35.100 --> 00:11:36.160
  • While you were steppin' over me,

  • and steppin' around me, and

  • steppin' past me, all that you
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:41.100
  • see comin' out of me now was in

  • me when you said I look like a

  • of your nut.

  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:08.220
  • that people step over you when
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:10.180

  • sometimes you step over you,

  • 'cause you're so busy trying
  • 00:12:17.010 --> 00:12:18.070
  • to compete with the trees
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:21.010

  • water, give it some sun, give it
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:30.240
  • some focus and you'll reap a
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:33.050
  • harvest, and you'll go through a
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:35.030
  • process.
  • 00:12:35.030 --> 00:12:36.080
  • All of a sudden, you got--look

  • at that, all of that's comin' up
  • 00:12:37.000 --> 00:12:39.080
  • It's not what it's gonna be,
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:44.200
  • but it's not what it used to be.
  • 00:12:44.200 --> 00:12:47.200
  • Until you can clap
  • 00:12:47.200 --> 00:12:49.200
  • for the seedling,

  • the process, you will never

  • You're not the nut you used
  • 00:13:10.080 --> 00:13:11.210
  • to be, but you're not the tree

  • you're gonna be.
  • 00:13:13.140 --> 00:13:15.290

  • to appreciate where you are

  • the potential of being a tree,

  • You're in love with tomorrow but

  • you're neglecting today,

  • he will not give you tomorrow.

  • who's invested 30 years in and
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:31.250
  • be respected as an equal when
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:33.280
  • you got three.
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:37.020
  • So, don't try to bombard the
  • 00:16:37.020 --> 00:16:38.080
  • conversation, 'cause even though
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:40.070
  • they smile politely and nod,
  • 00:16:40.070 --> 00:16:41.290
  • they think you're stupid,
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:43.090
  • because your mouth is telling me
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:44.180
  • that it is talking about
  • 00:16:44.180 --> 00:16:46.240
  • something, it is professing
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.060
  • something that it is not
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:49.280
  • possessing.
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:52.010
  • There are some things only
  • 00:16:52.010 --> 00:16:53.110
  • experience can teach you, and
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:56.250
  • until you pay your dues, don't
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:59.100
  • run with horses when you're
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:01.210
  • tired from walking with men.
  • 00:17:03.020 --> 00:17:06.020
  • Am I helping anybody?
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:07.260
  • I wanna go a little deeper.
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:08.270
  • Now, I wanna talk about how what
  • 00:17:08.270 --> 00:17:10.130
  • inspires us and what we're
  • 00:17:10.130 --> 00:17:12.130
  • attracted to.
  • 00:17:12.130 --> 00:17:13.120
  • We have this aspiration, if it
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:15.270
  • were music, to be a concert
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:17.280
  • pianist, to be masterful, to be
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:20.010
  • amazing, to be a maestro, as it
  • 00:17:20.010 --> 00:17:22.240
  • were.
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:23.220
  • Because we went to the recital
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:26.040
  • and we heard this amazing person
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:29.020
  • do a phenomenal job of playing
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:31.120
  • music, and they mastered the
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:33.150
  • keyboard with eloquence, and
  • 00:17:33.150 --> 00:17:35.110
  • depth, and integrity, and they
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:37.170
  • were so awesome at it that we
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.060
  • saw them, and we were inspired,
  • 00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:41.070
  • and we wanted to be like them.
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:42.230
  • Because there is nothing like a
  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:44.190
  • great instrument in the hand of
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:47.080
  • a great artist.
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.050
  • A great instrument in the hand
  • 00:17:49.050 --> 00:17:51.010
  • of a great artist produces great
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:53.130
  • music.
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:55.250
  • It does matter who's playing it,
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:59.070
  • it matter's who's swinging the
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:01.050
  • golf clubs, it matters who's
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:03.200
  • running the corporation, and we
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:05.280
  • are attracted to people who are
  • 00:18:05.280 --> 00:18:07.210
  • masterful at what they do.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:11.130
  • At the center stage we have a
  • 00:18:11.130 --> 00:18:13.000
  • piano, a baby grand piano
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:16.290
  • glistening, shining, and bright,
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:20.070
  • but it cannot play itself, it is
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:25.110
  • an opportunity.
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:28.070
  • If the right person doesn't
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:29.240
  • touch it, it will never reach
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.270
  • it's potential.
  • 00:18:33.070 --> 00:18:36.070
  • The piano has existed so long
  • 00:18:36.190 --> 00:18:39.190
  • that it will only give itself
  • 00:18:39.190 --> 00:18:41.060
  • fully over to somebody who has
  • 00:18:41.060 --> 00:18:43.200
  • invested enough time and effort
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:46.120
  • in it, and they know how to get
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:48.170
  • the most out of the same
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:50.140
  • keyboard.
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:52.100
  • Eighty-eight keys on the
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:53.280
  • keyboard, but it's the fingers
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:55.280
  • that pluck it that control what
  • 00:18:55.280 --> 00:18:57.280
  • it can produce.
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:19:00.120
  • So, you go out and you buy you a
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:01.260
  • piano, and in your mind, you
  • 00:19:02.000 --> 00:19:05.000
  • think, "I'm gonna work on this,
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:08.190
  • and in a couple of months I'm
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:10.200
  • gonna do that, too."
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:13.170
  • But when you get your piano, and
  • 00:19:13.170 --> 00:19:15.260
  • you get everything in place, and
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:17.020
  • you sit down at it, and you get
  • 00:19:17.050 --> 00:19:20.050
  • - Bishop Jakes: You say,
  • 00:19:32.210 --> 00:19:33.070
  • "I quit."
  • 00:19:33.200 --> 00:19:36.200
  • That doesn't sound like
  • 00:19:36.200 --> 00:19:39.030
  • what I had in mind.
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:41.220
  • Nobody clapped when I played it,
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:45.090
  • they don't like me.
  • 00:19:46.250 --> 00:19:49.250
  • You mean you really expected to
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:52.000
  • get the reaction of the maestro
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:56.070
  • at a recital when your life
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:59.140
  • See, you're trying to get a
  • 00:20:09.080 --> 00:20:10.140
  • reaction that you haven't earned
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:11.290
  • yet, and if you're not careful,
  • 00:20:12.100 --> 00:20:15.100
  • you will do this for a while and
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:17.130
  • say, "That doesn't work for me,"
  • 00:20:17.130 --> 00:20:19.180
  • and now you got the clarinet and
  • 00:20:19.180 --> 00:20:21.050
  • you're trying to blow it, and
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:22.290
  • then if you don't get a quick
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:24.040
  • reaction from that, you put that
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:25.270
  • down and say, "That's not giving
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:27.070
  • it to me," and now you got a
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:28.220
  • drum, and you beatin' on the
  • 00:20:28.220 --> 00:20:30.010
  • Look at how many things you
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:36.170
  • started and stopped,
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:38.210
  • underestimating how much
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:40.090
  • rehearsal you had to do and not
  • 00:20:40.090 --> 00:20:42.090
  • recognizing that--let me come up
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:45.290
  • here, not recognizing potential
  • 00:20:50.010 --> 00:20:53.010
  • versus product.
  • 00:20:53.010 --> 00:20:55.230
  • This is what the Bible meant
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:57.190
  • when it said, "Despise not
  • 00:20:57.190 --> 00:20:59.090
  • the day of small beginnings,"
  • 00:21:04.140 --> 00:21:07.140
  • because if you are faithful
  • 00:21:07.140 --> 00:21:08.160
  • to that, after a while,
  • 00:21:11.180 --> 00:21:14.180
  • - Bishop Jakes: If you stop
  • 00:21:43.280 --> 00:21:44.250
  • playing scales, you'll miss the
  • 00:21:44.250 --> 00:21:47.060
  • opportunity to discover the
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.130
  • sapling, the growth.
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:51.240
  • Play me something else,
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:52.270
  • just play me--I'm evolving from
  • 00:21:53.080 --> 00:21:56.080
  • - Bishop Jakes: See,
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:27.020
  • they're both playing the same
  • 00:22:27.020 --> 00:22:28.040
  • instrument, and they're
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:29.130
  • both playing the same thing,
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:30.160
  • but they're playing it
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:32.120
  • on different levels.
  • 00:22:32.120 --> 00:22:34.250
  • Touch somebody and tell 'em,
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:35.240
  • "Your next."
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:43.150
  • Am I talking to somebody, are
  • 00:22:43.150 --> 00:22:45.240
  • you hearing God talking to you?
  • 00:22:45.250 --> 00:22:48.250
  • Are you understanding that Paul
  • 00:22:48.250 --> 00:22:50.240
  • says I have learned whatever
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:53.060
  • state I'm in--play me
  • 00:22:53.060 --> 00:22:55.040
  • something--I've learned whatever
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:22:57.050
  • state I'm in therewith to be
  • 00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:08.010
  • content, because if I can
  • 00:23:08.010 --> 00:23:10.130
  • survive where I am right now,
  • 00:23:11.070 --> 00:23:14.070
  • - Bishop Jakes: It does not yet
  • 00:23:27.030 --> 00:23:27.280
  • appear what we shall be, but if
  • 00:23:28.040 --> 00:23:31.040
  • you keep on working on what you
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:32.190
  • are, what you shall be is gonna
  • 00:23:33.100 --> 00:23:36.100
  • manifest in your life.
  • 00:23:38.020 --> 00:23:41.020
  • Touch three people and tell 'em,
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:41.210
  • "It's in you, it's in you,
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:42.280
  • it's in you."
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:44.070
  • It's in you.
  • 00:23:44.070 --> 00:23:45.090
  • It's in you, it's in you,
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:46.050
  • it's in you.
  • 00:23:46.050 --> 00:23:47.170
  • Go ahead and rehearse, go ahead
  • 00:23:47.170 --> 00:23:49.210
  • and play your scales, go ahead
  • 00:23:49.210 --> 00:23:51.240
  • and work on your level, go ahead
  • 00:23:51.240 --> 00:23:53.240
  • and master where you are,
  • 00:23:53.240 --> 00:23:55.260
  • and after a while, without
  • 00:23:55.260 --> 00:23:57.030
  • you even trying to do it,
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:23:59.090
  • where you started will turn
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:01.080
  • into where you're going.
  • 00:24:01.080 --> 00:24:03.010
  • That's what destiny
  • 00:24:03.010 --> 00:24:04.230
  • is pulling you into.
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:06.210
  • If you understand what I'm
  • 00:24:06.210 --> 00:24:08.040
  • teaching, give God 30 seconds
  • 00:24:08.070 --> 00:24:11.070
  • From the rehearsal to the
  • 00:24:16.070 --> 00:24:17.220
  • recital, once you have mastered
  • 00:24:17.220 --> 00:24:20.160
  • it, whether the recital is
  • 00:24:20.160 --> 00:24:21.190

  • husband, family, whatever
  • 00:24:34.080 --> 00:24:36.290
  • your recital is, once you have
  • 00:24:36.290 --> 00:24:39.160
  • maximized it, you get to sit
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:42.000
  • with the masters.
  • 00:24:43.220 --> 00:24:46.220
  • Whether you are at the rehearsal

  • only finish when you focus on
  • 00:25:03.110 --> 00:25:06.110
  • - Cora: I pray that
