  • - God wasn't just
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:00.290
  • using the stuff
  • 00:00:00.290 --> 00:00:02.040
  • that felt good to you,
  • 00:00:02.040 --> 00:00:04.000
  • not just the stuff
  • 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:05.030
  • that you praised Him for,
  • 00:00:05.030 --> 00:00:06.270
  • not just the stuff
  • 00:00:06.270 --> 00:00:07.220
  • that you thanked Him for.
  • 00:00:07.220 --> 00:00:09.180
  • Paul finally came
  • 00:00:09.180 --> 00:00:10.250
  • to the point where he said,
  • 00:00:10.250 --> 00:00:12.050
  • "I learned to thank God
  • 00:00:12.050 --> 00:00:13.260
  • for my thorn.
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:15.040
  • I learned to thank Him
  • 00:00:15.040 --> 00:00:17.100
  • for the things
  • 00:00:17.100 --> 00:00:17.290
  • that He is using
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:19.130
  • that I did not choose
  • 00:00:19.130 --> 00:00:20.190
  • for myself,
  • 00:00:20.190 --> 00:00:21.260
  • the things that He is using
  • 00:00:21.260 --> 00:00:23.190
  • that tormented me
  • 00:00:23.190 --> 00:00:24.240
  • at one time,
  • 00:00:24.240 --> 00:00:25.260
  • but the tormentor
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:27.080
  • was my mentor
  • 00:00:27.080 --> 00:00:28.250
  • that transformed me
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:30.010
  • into who I needed to be
  • 00:00:30.010 --> 00:00:31.150
  • so that I would rely
  • 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:33.130
  • on the grace of God."
  • 00:00:33.130 --> 00:00:34.240
  • - I was amazed how Jesus
  • 00:00:40.230 --> 00:00:42.150
  • when He was putting together
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:44.080
  • His kingdom dream team
  • 00:00:44.080 --> 00:00:46.290
  • knew that one of them
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:48.010
  • was a devil
  • 00:00:48.010 --> 00:00:49.160
  • and kept him anyway.
  • 00:00:49.240 --> 00:00:52.240
  • John, I understand;
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:55.050
  • the disciple that Jesus loved,
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:57.270
  • at least that's what
  • 00:00:57.270 --> 00:00:58.280
  • He put in his own bio.
  • 00:00:58.280 --> 00:01:00.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:01:03.030 --> 00:01:06.030
  • Of course you chose John.
  • 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:08.090
  • He's going to take care
  • 00:01:08.090 --> 00:01:09.020
  • of your mama when you're gone.
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:13.020
  • And of course, He chose Judas.
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:15.280
  • Because Judas was the one
  • 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:16.290
  • who got him to the cross,
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:18.230
  • where He paid the price
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:19.210
  • that he came to pay.
  • 00:01:19.210 --> 00:01:22.070
  • You need both.
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:24.160
  • You need wheat and weeds.
  • 00:01:26.050 --> 00:01:29.050
  • If you're trying
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:29.220
  • to pull them up,
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:31.120
  • try to get the stuff out of
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:32.080
  • your life that you don't like.
  • 00:01:32.080 --> 00:01:34.230
  • You'll tear out the wheat,
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:37.090
  • the substance,
  • 00:01:37.090 --> 00:01:39.210
  • you'll tear out the thing
  • 00:01:39.210 --> 00:01:40.190
  • that God is growing.
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:42.200
  • Because see,
  • 00:01:42.200 --> 00:01:44.000
  • what would happen
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:46.030
  • if you planted
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:46.140
  • this particular type of,
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:48.090
  • of weed or some versions
  • 00:01:48.090 --> 00:01:49.290
  • call it the tares,
  • 00:01:49.290 --> 00:01:51.030
  • the wheat and the tares.
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:52.290
  • It looked the same
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:53.240
  • on the surface.
  • 00:01:53.240 --> 00:01:56.110
  • but where it was really
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:58.120
  • difficult was underground
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:02.060
  • where the tares would
  • 00:02:02.060 --> 00:02:03.250
  • intermingle with the wheat
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:07.000
  • and the root systems
  • 00:02:07.000 --> 00:02:08.000
  • would get intertwined.
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:10.270
  • And sometimes what God is
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.110
  • doing in your life
  • 00:02:12.110 --> 00:02:13.260
  • beneath the surface,
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:16.010
  • that the pain is intertwined
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:19.230
  • with the purpose.
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:21.260
  • You hear me?
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:24.020
  • The thing that you
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:24.220
  • don't like about yourself,
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:27.040
  • is sometimes the thing
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:29.090
  • that God is using.
  • 00:02:29.090 --> 00:02:31.220
  • And we asked God to use us.
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:34.070
  • And we asked God to do
  • 00:02:34.070 --> 00:02:35.110
  • His will in our lives,
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:37.040
  • unless we don't like it.
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:39.090
  • And then we want
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:39.280
  • to root that out.
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:41.160
  • And so then it's like, well,
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:42.180
  • God, I want you to do this,
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:43.280
  • but not that.
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:45.160
  • And what Solomon said
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:46.220
  • is what Jesus said,
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:48.010
  • You don't know
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:48.200
  • which one is which.
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:50.180
  • And so we have to be very
  • 00:02:50.180 --> 00:02:51.290
  • careful when we are trying
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:53.180
  • to do our own gardening.
  • 00:02:53.180 --> 00:02:55.250
  • Because I don't know about you,
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:56.260
  • but I am not a horticulturist.
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:02:59.190
  • I don't have a lot of
  • 00:02:59.190 --> 00:03:00.150
  • agriculture experience.
  • 00:03:00.150 --> 00:03:02.030
  • I was preparing this message
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:03.110
  • and I had this weird memory
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:05.070
  • of being a little boy,
  • 00:03:05.070 --> 00:03:06.280
  • and my mom had this
  • 00:03:06.280 --> 00:03:08.100
  • little flower bed
  • 00:03:08.100 --> 00:03:09.080
  • outside our house.
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.110
  • And one day I decided
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:11.120
  • to be helpful.
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:12.220
  • And I came back to the door
  • 00:03:12.220 --> 00:03:15.010
  • and I was so proud.
  • 00:03:15.010 --> 00:03:16.080
  • I was like,
  • 00:03:16.080 --> 00:03:16.270
  • Mom and I had my hands full.
  • 00:03:16.270 --> 00:03:18.220
  • And I said,
  • 00:03:18.220 --> 00:03:19.120
  • I got all the weeds
  • 00:03:19.120 --> 00:03:20.150
  • out of your flower bag.
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:22.090
  • And she looked like she wanted
  • 00:03:22.090 --> 00:03:23.080
  • to slap me,
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:24.040
  • but she restrained herself,
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.190
  • she said,
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:26.030
  • "Those were the flowers."
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:29.080
  • But I didn't know
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:29.280
  • the difference.
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:31.170
  • Because I was too immature,
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:34.090
  • to know the difference.
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:36.090
  • And sometimes we are
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.220
  • spiritually immature.
  • 00:03:37.220 --> 00:03:40.000
  • And we are running from things
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:42.010
  • and removing things
  • 00:03:42.010 --> 00:03:43.140
  • and resisting things.
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:45.090
  • And in the process of trying
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:46.180
  • to pluck out the weeds,
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:48.140
  • you're removing the wheat.
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:52.270
  • [applause]
  • 00:03:52.270 --> 00:03:54.270
  • If God answered every prayer
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:57.190
  • you prayed right now --
  • 00:03:57.190 --> 00:03:59.060
  • I'm sorry, "Bruce Almighty",
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:00.060
  • was a pretty good movie,
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:01.070
  • it would screw up the universe,
  • 00:04:01.070 --> 00:04:03.110
  • it would ruin your training.
  • 00:04:03.110 --> 00:04:05.280
  • Look, can I teach
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:07.050
  • a little bit?
  • 00:04:07.050 --> 00:04:08.230
  • All right.
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:09.060
  • So I used to not be able
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:10.030
  • to do a pullup.
  • 00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:11.230
  • I'm not gonna lie to you.
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:12.160
  • I was 22 years old
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:14.180
  • and I had never done
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:15.080
  • a pullup in my life.
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:17.290
  • So I start training
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:19.200
  • to do pullups
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:20.210
  • and I could do some pullups.
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:22.130
  • One day, this guy told me
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:26.270
  • that I had to do
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:27.230
  • not only pullups,
  • 00:04:27.230 --> 00:04:28.190
  • which was a feat
  • 00:04:28.190 --> 00:04:29.150
  • of accomplishment for me
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.160
  • that I worked
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:32.110
  • my whole life toward
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:32.280
  • to this point,
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:34.030
  • a combination
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:34.190
  • of my entire life's effort
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:36.070
  • in the realm of exercise,
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:37.170
  • he's like, "Now I need you
  • 00:04:37.170 --> 00:04:38.230
  • to do a negative."
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:39.290
  • I said, "What's a negative?"
  • 00:04:39.290 --> 00:04:41.020
  • He said, "Well, there's two
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:42.190
  • parts to every rep.
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:43.270
  • There's when you're going up
  • 00:04:43.270 --> 00:04:45.200
  • and there's when
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:46.100
  • you're coming down.
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:47.130
  • But there's just as much
  • 00:04:47.130 --> 00:04:48.080
  • benefit in coming down
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.280
  • as there is in coming up."
  • 00:04:52.150 --> 00:04:55.150
  • I'm gonna give you seven seconds
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:04:58.100
  • 'cause if that hits you right,
  • 00:04:58.100 --> 00:05:00.110
  • you will start to see
  • 00:05:00.110 --> 00:05:02.070
  • that the things
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:02.260
  • in your life right now
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.080
  • that you perceive as negative,
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:06.220
  • might be a crucial function
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:09.140
  • in building your strength
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:11.180
  • and your stamina
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:13.150
  • and your hope.
  • 00:05:13.150 --> 00:05:14.210
  • There are some things
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.070
  • about God that you can only
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.090
  • learn going down.
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:20.070
  • Ask Peter beginning to sink
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:22.140
  • when he felt the grip
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:23.270
  • of the grace of God through
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:25.220
  • the hand of Jesus of Nazareth
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:28.100
  • and he said, "Now I know
  • 00:05:28.100 --> 00:05:30.030
  • that you're Lord."
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.240
  • That's the blessing
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:35.280
  • of both and you don't know.
  • 00:05:35.280 --> 00:05:38.010
  • Touch somebody, say,
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:38.260
  • "You don't know."
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:40.180
  • You don't know
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:41.030
  • the difference between
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:41.290
  • wheat and weed.
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:44.020
  • You can't do the angel's job.
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:47.130
  • Let God sort that out.
  • 00:05:47.130 --> 00:05:50.030
  • I heard the Lord say,
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:51.220
  • "Keep sowing and stop sorting,
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:55.090
  • S-O-R-T-I-N-G.
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:57.260
  • Keep sowing and stop sorting.
  • 00:05:57.260 --> 00:06:00.260
  • Stop judging the experience
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:02.220
  • the moment it happens.
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.040
  • Give it some time
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:05.020
  • to see what it is."
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:06.150
  • As a matter of fact,
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:07.180
  • I don't know if you
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:08.200
  • have experienced this,
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:10.020
  • but some of my successes
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:11.220
  • have been the fruit
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:12.270
  • of my failures.
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:15.290
  • Some of the things
  • 00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:16.230
  • that have produced
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:17.090
  • the most in my life
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:19.150
  • were the things
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.000
  • that honestly at the time,
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:21.050
  • I was the most
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:21.230
  • embarrassed about.
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:24.060
  • Some of the things
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:24.210
  • that have actually --
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:26.120
  • I know that most of you
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:29.020
  • in this church know the song,
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.070
  • "Oh Come to the Altar".
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.290
  • The song that almost
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:33.060
  • never was.
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:35.110
  • There were 12 versions
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:36.190
  • of that song,
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:38.110
  • all of them sucked.
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:40.080
  • All right.
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:40.270
  • Write this down.
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:41.130
  • You want a deep revelation?
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:43.040
  • Success starts with sucks.
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:45.140
  • He said sow it in the morning,
  • 00:06:55.050 --> 00:06:56.150
  • sow it in the evening
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:57.100
  • because you don't know,
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:59.250
  • seeds can be deceiving.
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:02.190
  • Seeds can look awfully small.
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:05.090
  • Seeds can look impotent.
  • 00:07:05.090 --> 00:07:07.160
  • And they may be dormant
  • 00:07:07.160 --> 00:07:08.090
  • for a while
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:08.280
  • and when you sow 'em,
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:09.190
  • they go away
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:10.040
  • for a little while,
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:11.200
  • but they didn't go to die,
  • 00:07:11.200 --> 00:07:13.230
  • they went to multiply.
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:15.290
  • Some of the things
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:16.190
  • in your life
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:17.090
  • that you said good-bye to,
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:18.250
  • you need to say see you later,
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.130
  • I'm expecting you
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:21.090
  • to come back up again
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:22.180
  • 'cause I believe
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:23.210
  • in resurrection.
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:26.110
  • The blessing of both.
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:37.070
  • Both.
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:38.200
  • I need both in my life.
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:39.270
  • Paul needed both,
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:40.190
  • I guess I do too.
  • 00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:43.250
  • Paul had this thing
  • 00:07:43.250 --> 00:07:44.150
  • he called a thorn
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:47.280
  • and he kept trying
  • 00:07:47.280 --> 00:07:48.170
  • to weed it out.
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:50.160
  • Asked God three times
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:51.130
  • take it away.
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:54.060
  • Now if you've ever asked God
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:55.020
  • to take something away,
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:57.170
  • that's fine,
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.080
  • but if He doesn't do it,
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.000
  • leave it alone.
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:03.120
  • And here's why
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:03.280
  • you can leave it alone,
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:05.180
  • because the presence of weeds
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.030
  • will not cancel out
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:08.050
  • the power of the wheat.
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:10.060
  • What is supposed
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:10.260
  • to grow will grow.
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:12.290
  • Leave it alone
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:13.170
  • for a little while
  • 00:08:13.170 --> 00:08:14.240
  • and see what it becomes.
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:16.260
  • See if it will be the fruit.
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:17.280
  • This failure
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:19.040
  • that you're processing
  • 00:08:19.040 --> 00:08:19.250
  • right now, some of you
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:20.240
  • started the business,
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:21.240
  • you did the thing,
  • 00:08:21.240 --> 00:08:22.140
  • you took the step,
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:23.110
  • and you made a mess out of it,
  • 00:08:23.110 --> 00:08:24.160
  • see if maybe
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:25.250
  • that might be the seed
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:28.180
  • of something that becomes
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:29.170
  • something that people
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:30.110
  • will celebrate in the future.
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:31.130
  • And you will know
  • 00:08:31.130 --> 00:08:32.060
  • and God will know
  • 00:08:32.060 --> 00:08:33.060
  • that you almost gave up.
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:34.250
  • And the enemy was there
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:35.240
  • telling you stop sowing,
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:36.210
  • it's not working.
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:37.100
  • But you kept sowing
  • 00:08:37.100 --> 00:08:38.060
  • and you sowed in the morning
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:39.260
  • and you sowed in the evening
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:41.170
  • and you loved anyway
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:42.260
  • and you forgave anyway
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:44.190
  • and you showed up anyway
  • 00:08:44.190 --> 00:08:46.030
  • and you did it anyway
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:47.130
  • and you memorized a Scripture
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:49.030
  • and quoted it anyway
  • 00:08:49.030 --> 00:08:50.050
  • even though it wasn't happening
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:51.100
  • in your life,
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:52.040
  • but you kept quoting it
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:53.120
  • and you kept sowing
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:54.280
  • and you didn't try
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:55.200
  • to sort it out
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:56.120
  • and you didn't try
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:57.040
  • to root it up
  • 00:08:57.040 --> 00:08:58.080
  • and you didn't get
  • 00:08:58.080 --> 00:08:59.010
  • impatient and immature,
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:00.190
  • but you waited
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:01.230
  • for the will of God
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:03.030
  • to come to pass in your life.
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:07.080
  • Don't you ever stop sowing
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.240
  • 'cause you don't know.
  • 00:09:09.240 --> 00:09:11.250
  • Solomon said,
  • 00:09:11.250 --> 00:09:12.120
  • "You don't know the way
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:13.150
  • that the breath enters
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:14.090
  • the bones and you don't know
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:15.070
  • the way God works either."
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:17.160
  • You don't know.
  • 00:09:17.160 --> 00:09:19.160
  • We don't know which sermons
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:20.120
  • God's gonna use
  • 00:09:20.120 --> 00:09:21.080
  • to touch people.
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:23.120
  • Didn't you ever preach one
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:24.070
  • you hated and then everybody
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:25.120
  • wanted to talk about it
  • 00:09:25.120 --> 00:09:26.070
  • for the next year?
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:28.130
  • And you preached one you loved
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:29.140
  • and nobody ever
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:30.100
  • remembered it.
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:31.200
  • It'll make you mad,
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:33.130
  • but that's how the breath
  • 00:09:33.130 --> 00:09:34.030
  • operates so you'll be reminded
  • 00:09:34.030 --> 00:09:36.100
  • that you need
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:36.270
  • the Spirit of God,
  • 00:09:36.270 --> 00:09:37.290
  • not just structure
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:38.280
  • and skill and some things
  • 00:09:38.280 --> 00:09:40.250
  • in your life is gonna
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:42.020
  • surprise you
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:42.280
  • 'cause you don't know.
  • 00:09:42.280 --> 00:09:45.070
  • He said, "One might work
  • 00:09:45.070 --> 00:09:46.020
  • and one might not or both might
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:47.240
  • do equally well."
  • 00:09:47.240 --> 00:09:49.090
  • In fact, he said in the ESV,
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:50.220
  • "Both may be good."
  • 00:09:51.060 --> 00:09:54.060
  • Now that made me think
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:54.280
  • of Joseph naturally.
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:58.090
  • Old Testament Joseph
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:10:00.180
  • with the coat Joseph.
  • 00:10:01.270 --> 00:10:04.270
  • The coat that got him beat up.
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:07.130
  • The coat that got him
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.070
  • thrown in a pit.
  • 00:10:08.070 --> 00:10:09.250
  • The coat that represented
  • 00:10:09.250 --> 00:10:10.130
  • the favor of his father.
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:12.180
  • The coat that was kinda loud
  • 00:10:12.180 --> 00:10:13.260
  • and obnoxious,
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:14.240
  • but he wore it anyway.
  • 00:10:14.240 --> 00:10:16.190
  • The coat that let him know
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:17.190
  • he was chosen even if people
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:18.290
  • didn't like him.
  • 00:10:18.290 --> 00:10:20.080
  • Remember, you need both.
  • 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:22.050
  • Everybody's not supposed
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:23.030
  • to like you.
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:24.090
  • If everybody likes you,
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:25.160
  • you are doing nothing.
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:27.170
  • If everybody likes you,
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:28.170
  • you stand for nothing.
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:30.050
  • If everybody agrees with you,
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.160
  • you are saying nothing.
  • 00:10:31.160 --> 00:10:33.080
  • You don't need everybody
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:34.040
  • to like you.
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:36.110
  • This is spoken like
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:36.270
  • a true prophet now
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:38.240
  • 'cause one time
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:39.110
  • I was going through
  • 00:10:39.110 --> 00:10:40.040
  • some criticism and I asked God
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.290
  • to make it stop.
  • 00:10:41.290 --> 00:10:43.170
  • He said, "Well, if I stop that
  • 00:10:43.170 --> 00:10:46.030
  • then I gotta stop
  • 00:10:46.030 --> 00:10:46.200
  • the blessing that created
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:47.220
  • the criticism to begin with
  • 00:10:47.220 --> 00:10:50.170
  • because both grow together."
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:55.120
  • Both grow together.
  • 00:10:55.120 --> 00:10:58.070
  • Oh, I wanna be used by God
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.250
  • and I want everybody to agree
  • 00:10:59.250 --> 00:11:01.260
  • with all of my decisions
  • 00:11:01.260 --> 00:11:03.040
  • and validate my existence.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:05.270
  • Both grow together.
  • 00:11:05.270 --> 00:11:08.220
  • And so when Joseph
  • 00:11:08.220 --> 00:11:09.190
  • did get pushed in a pit,
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.190
  • it was no surprise to me
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:13.020
  • that the Ishmaelite caravan
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:15.240
  • was the one
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:16.100
  • that picked him up.
  • 00:11:16.100 --> 00:11:17.240
  • It didn't surprise me at all
  • 00:11:17.240 --> 00:11:19.250
  • because that's just like God.
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:21.250
  • He always uses both.
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:24.090
  • Ishmael was the son
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:25.150
  • that Abraham had doing it
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:27.040
  • his own way.
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:28.060
  • Isaac was the one
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:29.010
  • that he had doing it God's way.
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:31.000
  • But guess
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:31.120
  • which one God used.
  • 00:11:31.230 --> 00:11:34.230
  • Guess which one God used.
  • 00:11:34.230 --> 00:11:36.230
  • Both.
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:37.200
  • You mean God
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:38.080
  • will use my mistakes
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:39.210
  • to bring about
  • 00:11:39.210 --> 00:11:41.050
  • a deliverance in my future?
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:44.090
  • You mean God will use
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:45.060
  • the dumb thing I did?
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:47.000
  • I'm saying absolutely
  • 00:11:47.000 --> 00:11:48.080
  • if He's sovereign, He will,
  • 00:11:48.080 --> 00:11:50.070
  • if it's His field,
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:51.090
  • if it's His harvest,
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:52.200
  • if it's His job
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:54.060
  • to superintend your life.
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:57.050
  • Even the Ishmaelites
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.040
  • served a purpose.
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:12:01.030
  • When David slept
  • 00:12:01.030 --> 00:12:02.050
  • with Bathsheba
  • 00:12:02.050 --> 00:12:03.210
  • after the child died,
  • 00:12:03.210 --> 00:12:05.080
  • the next son
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:05.250
  • he had was named Solomon
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.100
  • who was the wisest man
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:08.250
  • whoever lived
  • 00:12:08.250 --> 00:12:10.070
  • who wrote Ecclesiastes 11.
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:12.130
  • His dumbest decision led
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:14.070
  • to the world's greatest wisdom.
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:18.210
  • I'm gonna try.
  • 00:12:18.210 --> 00:12:19.230
  • I'm gonna try 'cause I saw it
  • 00:12:19.230 --> 00:12:21.070
  • in my mind like this.
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:22.050
  • I saw that God is using both
  • 00:12:22.050 --> 00:12:24.130
  • in your life right now.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:26.080
  • He's using both.
  • 00:12:26.080 --> 00:12:27.100
  • So when Joseph
  • 00:12:27.100 --> 00:12:28.070
  • gets thrown in prison,
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:30.040
  • it's not good,
  • 00:12:30.040 --> 00:12:31.090
  • but God uses that
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:33.000
  • to introduce him
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:33.270
  • to somebody
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:34.210
  • who is going to bring him
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:35.220
  • before Pharaoh.
  • 00:12:35.220 --> 00:12:37.060
  • When he comes before Pharaoh,
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:38.240
  • Pharaoh is telling him
  • 00:12:38.240 --> 00:12:39.280
  • about a dream that means
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:41.070
  • there's gonna be a famine
  • 00:12:41.070 --> 00:12:42.070
  • in the land.
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:43.050
  • Well, the famine isn't good,
  • 00:12:43.050 --> 00:12:44.210
  • but God is using the famine
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.000
  • to create a position
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.000
  • of favor for His people.
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:49.050
  • Now when they finally
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:49.290
  • got there,
  • 00:12:49.290 --> 00:12:50.210
  • Joseph is standing
  • 00:12:50.210 --> 00:12:51.170
  • before his brothers
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:52.140
  • and he has a revelation
  • 00:12:52.140 --> 00:12:54.020
  • that everything
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:55.030
  • that has happened
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:55.280
  • in his life wasn't good,
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:58.110
  • but everything
  • 00:12:58.110 --> 00:12:59.060
  • that happened in his life
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:00.170
  • has been held
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:01.130
  • in the hand of God.
  • 00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:03.020
  • So God wasn't just using
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:05.030
  • the stuff that felt good to you,
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:07.190
  • not just the stuff
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:08.180
  • that you praised Him for,
  • 00:13:08.180 --> 00:13:10.110
  • not just the stuff
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:11.050
  • that you thanked Him for.
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:12.240
  • Paul finally came
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:14.040
  • to the point where he said,
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:15.170
  • "I learned to thank God
  • 00:13:15.170 --> 00:13:17.080
  • for my thorn.
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:18.080
  • I learned to thank Him
  • 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:20.090
  • for the things
  • 00:13:20.090 --> 00:13:21.080
  • that He is using
  • 00:13:21.080 --> 00:13:22.190
  • that I did not choose
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:24.020
  • for myself,
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:25.100
  • the things that He is using
  • 00:13:25.100 --> 00:13:27.060
  • that tormented me at one time,
  • 00:13:27.060 --> 00:13:29.190
  • but the tormentor was my mentor
  • 00:13:29.190 --> 00:13:32.010
  • that transformed me
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:33.110
  • into who I needed to be
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:35.090
  • so that I would rely
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.150
  • on the grace of God."
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:38.120
  • It's the blessing of both.
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:41.090
  • [applause]
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:44.120
  • It's both.
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:46.140
  • So when Joseph said,
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:48.130
  • "You meant it to harm me,
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.290
  • but God meant it for good,"
  • 00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:53.010
  • he's not speaking out
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:53.260
  • of both sides of his mouth.
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:56.230
  • It's both.
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:59.050
  • They meant it,
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:01.060
  • but God used it.
  • 00:14:01.060 --> 00:14:03.220
  • God is going to use both.
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:08.220
  • [applause]
  • 00:14:08.220 --> 00:14:11.070
  • I promise you He is.
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:14.100
  • I promise you He is.
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:16.020
  • That's what the cross
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:17.170
  • represents after all.
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:18.290
  • It's two beams.
  • 00:14:18.290 --> 00:14:20.060
  • One vertical,
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:21.040
  • that's you and God,
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:21.240
  • one horizontal,
  • 00:14:21.240 --> 00:14:22.140
  • that's you and people,
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.140
  • it's both.
  • 00:14:23.140 --> 00:14:25.000
  • "Love the Lord your God
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:25.240
  • with all your heart,
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:26.150
  • soul, mind, strength.
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:28.060
  • Love your neighbor
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:28.270
  • as yourself."
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:29.170
  • It's both.
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:31.080
  • It's not one or the other.
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:32.270
  • It's both.
  • 00:14:32.270 --> 00:14:34.080
  • I praise God when I feel it,
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:36.110
  • I praise God
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:37.050
  • when I don't feel it.
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:38.200
  • I praise God when I sense Him,
  • 00:14:38.200 --> 00:14:41.010
  • I praise Him
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:41.200
  • when it's so distant
  • 00:14:41.200 --> 00:14:42.230
  • that I wonder sometimes
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:44.000
  • is any of this even real.
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:45.290
  • I praise Him in the good times,
  • 00:14:45.290 --> 00:14:48.030
  • I praise Him
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:48.280
  • in the bad times.
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:50.040
  • I praise Him
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:51.100
  • when He does what I ask,
  • 00:14:51.100 --> 00:14:52.140
  • I praise Him when He runs
  • 00:14:52.140 --> 00:14:53.170
  • a little late
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:54.090
  • to Lazarus' funeral
  • 00:14:54.090 --> 00:14:55.130
  • 'cause I know
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:14:56.110
  • even on the fourth day,
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:14:58.090
  • He can say something.
  • 00:14:58.190 --> 00:15:01.210
  • And Joseph said,
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:11.070
  • "Oh, it's both.
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:15.240
  • It's pain and purpose."
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:19.290
  • It's both.
  • 00:15:19.290 --> 00:15:22.140
  • And we keep waiting
  • 00:15:22.140 --> 00:15:24.140
  • to this day
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:26.190
  • when everything in our life
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:28.260
  • will be stable
  • 00:15:28.260 --> 00:15:30.270
  • and all of our relationships
  • 00:15:30.270 --> 00:15:33.090
  • will be harmonious.
  • 00:15:33.090 --> 00:15:36.050
  • And God said,
  • 00:15:36.050 --> 00:15:36.260
  • "I need you to learn
  • 00:15:36.260 --> 00:15:39.010
  • how to celebrate the wheat
  • 00:15:39.130 --> 00:15:42.130
  • even while you're looking
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:43.140
  • at the weeds."
  • 00:15:44.030 --> 00:15:47.030
  • Even the enemy
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:51.270
  • serves a purpose.
  • 00:15:51.270 --> 00:15:54.180
  • Even the devil works for God.
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:15:59.180
  • The devil's not in charge
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:00.130
  • of what happens in my life.
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:02.260
  • God doesn't do everything
  • 00:16:02.260 --> 00:16:04.010
  • that happens to me,
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.200
  • but He uses everything
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:08.070
  • that happens to me.
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:09.280
  • There is nothing
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:10.200
  • that is happening
  • 00:16:10.200 --> 00:16:11.100
  • in your life that will not have
  • 00:16:11.100 --> 00:16:13.220
  • to pass through
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:15.030
  • the hand of God by the time
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:16.060
  • it's said and done.
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:20.080
  • And so I saw this picture
  • 00:16:20.140 --> 00:16:23.140
  • that really moved me
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:26.030
  • of how Joseph's father, Jacob,
  • 00:16:27.060 --> 00:16:30.060
  • at the end of his life
  • 00:16:30.060 --> 00:16:31.060
  • was sitting
  • 00:16:31.060 --> 00:16:31.230
  • on his deathbed.
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:34.100
  • And Jacob was
  • 00:16:34.100 --> 00:16:34.260
  • an interesting character
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:37.030
  • 'cause he had two names,
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:39.080
  • Jacob, deceiver,
  • 00:16:39.080 --> 00:16:41.260
  • Israel, prince.
  • 00:16:41.260 --> 00:16:44.220
  • Which one was he?
  • 00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:46.080
  • - CONGREGATION: BOTH.
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:48.240
  • - If you'll be really honest,
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:51.270
  • you're both too.
  • 00:16:52.020 --> 00:16:55.020
  • So please don't judge people
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:57.220
  • just because their shortcomings
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:59.210
  • are exposed.
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:02.030
  • If it weren't
  • 00:17:02.030 --> 00:17:02.170
  • for the grace of God
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.130
  • who knows where you would be.
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:06.040
  • Come on.
  • 00:17:06.040 --> 00:17:06.160
  • How many know
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:07.070
  • what you're capable of?
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:12.080
  • I didn't have a problem.
  • 00:17:12.080 --> 00:17:14.240
  • I didn't have a problem
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:15.190
  • preaching in that prison
  • 00:17:15.190 --> 00:17:16.210
  • the other day
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:18.100
  • because I'm not
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:19.060
  • in that same situation,
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:20.150
  • but I could be.
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:23.080
  • There's nothing better
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:23.290
  • about me than anybody
  • 00:17:23.290 --> 00:17:25.010
  • that I was preaching to.
  • 00:17:25.010 --> 00:17:27.060
  • It wasn't a problem
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:27.280
  • for me to preach.
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:29.270
  • It's the power of both.
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:32.040
  • It's the blessing of both.
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:35.160
  • And when Jacob
  • 00:17:35.160 --> 00:17:36.270
  • was about to die,
  • 00:17:36.270 --> 00:17:39.040
  • Joseph wanted to get his kids
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:40.280
  • in front of Jacob
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:43.010
  • so that they could be blessed.
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:45.150
  • And he brought these two sons
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:46.220
  • that he had in Egypt.
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:48.290
  • The oldest one
  • 00:17:48.290 --> 00:17:49.150
  • was named Manasseh,
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:50.200
  • the younger one
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:51.060
  • was named Ephraim.
  • 00:17:51.060 --> 00:17:54.060
  • And they sat
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:54.210
  • on Jacob's knees for a minute.
  • 00:17:54.210 --> 00:17:57.170
  • Jacob couldn't see very well.
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:18:00.250
  • And after all that Joseph
  • 00:18:01.010 --> 00:18:04.010
  • has been through,
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:04.260
  • God has blessed him anyway.
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:07.050
  • These two sons
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:09.080
  • have significant names,
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:11.260
  • Manasseh means to forget
  • 00:18:12.010 --> 00:18:15.010
  • 'cause he said I'm going
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:16.060
  • to forget the shame
  • 00:18:16.060 --> 00:18:18.190
  • and the pain of Egypt.
  • 00:18:18.190 --> 00:18:20.110
  • God has made me forget.
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:21.150
  • And then Ephraim
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:23.040
  • means fruitful.
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:25.160
  • Isn't that beautiful how God
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:26.140
  • can produce fruit
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:29.130
  • in even the hardest
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:30.060
  • and worst situations.
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:33.230
  • Well, anyway,
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:36.160
  • when Jacob was sitting up
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:38.190
  • to bless the boys,
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:41.000
  • he did something weird.
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:43.050
  • I wanna show you
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:43.250
  • this real quick.
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:45.270
  • I don't know who this is for,
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:46.250
  • but in Genesis 48:13.
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:52.290
  • You got it?
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:54.180
  • Forty-eight thirteen, please.
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:57.070
  • And it said,
  • 00:18:57.070 --> 00:18:57.270
  • "And Joseph took them..."
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:05.030
  • "He took both of them,
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:09.080
  • Ephraim in his right
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:10.110
  • toward Israel's left hand and,
  • 00:19:10.110 --> 00:19:11.220
  • Manasseh in his left hand."
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:14.150
  • God's gonna bless both.
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.250
  • "And he brought them
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:18.110
  • near him."
  • 00:19:18.110 --> 00:19:19.040
  • Next verse.
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:20.140
  • "And Israel stretched out
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:21.110
  • his right hand,
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:23.070
  • laid it on the head
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:23.260
  • of Ephraim who was the younger,
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:26.150
  • and his left hand
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:27.160
  • on the head of Manasseh,
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:29.140
  • crossing his hands for Manasseh
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:32.070
  • was the firstborn."
  • 00:19:32.070 --> 00:19:33.210
  • Now understand
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:34.130
  • when he did that,
  • 00:19:34.220 --> 00:19:37.220
  • it broke every protocol
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:39.020
  • and violated every expectation
  • 00:19:39.020 --> 00:19:41.250
  • because he was supposed
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:43.030
  • to bless the oldest one first.
  • 00:19:45.080 --> 00:19:48.080
  • But God doesn't do things
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:52.000
  • the way we think
  • 00:19:52.000 --> 00:19:52.150
  • that He should do things.
  • 00:19:53.060 --> 00:19:56.060
  • And we don't get
  • 00:19:56.060 --> 00:19:57.050
  • what we deserve from God,
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:58.210
  • we get so much more.
  • 00:19:58.210 --> 00:19:59.150
  • We get His grace
  • 00:19:59.150 --> 00:20:01.250
  • and His mercy.
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:04.200
  • "And when he crossed
  • 00:20:04.200 --> 00:20:06.170
  • his hands over to bless
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:07.170
  • the younger one first..."
  • 00:20:07.170 --> 00:20:09.170
  • Do any of you know that God
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:10.140
  • has blessed you in ways
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:11.150
  • that you don't deserve
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:12.150
  • and didn't earn
  • 00:20:12.150 --> 00:20:13.000
  • and there's no way
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:13.190
  • in the world you could've built
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:14.180
  • a resume to afford it.
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:18.140
  • So when he did it,
  • 00:20:18.290 --> 00:20:21.290
  • Joseph got really upset.
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:23.290
  • It said, "When Joseph saw..."
  • 00:20:23.290 --> 00:20:25.090
  • Verse 17.
  • 00:20:25.090 --> 00:20:25.270
  • "That his father laid
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:27.050
  • his right hand
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:28.040
  • on the head of Ephraim,
  • 00:20:28.040 --> 00:20:29.070
  • it displeased him,
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:31.080
  • and he took his father's
  • 00:20:31.080 --> 00:20:32.060
  • hand to move it
  • 00:20:32.060 --> 00:20:34.040
  • from Ephraim's head
  • 00:20:34.040 --> 00:20:35.150
  • to Manasseh's head."
  • 00:20:35.150 --> 00:20:36.250
  • Watch the next verse.
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:37.290
  • "And Joseph said to his father,
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:39.040
  • 'Not this way,
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:39.240
  • my father.
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:40.150
  • This one's the firstborn.
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:41.290
  • You know, I know
  • 00:20:41.290 --> 00:20:42.180
  • you're getting old
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:43.040
  • and you can't --
  • 00:20:43.040 --> 00:20:44.010
  • you used to do this
  • 00:20:44.010 --> 00:20:45.040
  • when you were a little kid.
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:46.060
  • You've been trying to switch
  • 00:20:46.060 --> 00:20:46.260
  • things up your whole life.
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:47.260
  • But put your right hand
  • 00:20:47.260 --> 00:20:48.250
  • on his head."
  • 00:20:48.250 --> 00:20:49.190
  • Watch the next verse.
  • 00:20:49.190 --> 00:20:50.090
  • "But his father refused
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:51.020
  • and said, 'I know, my son,
  • 00:20:51.020 --> 00:20:52.050
  • I know.
  • 00:20:52.050 --> 00:20:52.280
  • He shall also become
  • 00:20:52.280 --> 00:20:55.000
  • a people.
  • 00:20:55.000 --> 00:20:56.170
  • He shall also be great."
  • 00:20:56.170 --> 00:20:59.040
  • In other words,
  • 00:20:59.040 --> 00:20:59.180
  • he said I'm gonna bless both.
  • 00:21:01.120 --> 00:21:04.120
  • You know why I don't ever have
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:05.150
  • to be jealous of anybody
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:07.200
  • else's life?
  • 00:21:07.200 --> 00:21:09.050
  • You know why I don't ever have
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:10.010
  • to worry about comparing myself
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:12.250
  • to what God does
  • 00:21:12.250 --> 00:21:13.230
  • for somebody else?
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:15.090
  • Because God is big enough
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:18.130
  • to bless both of us.
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:21.040
  • [applause]
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:23.290
  • And when you know that --
  • 00:21:23.290 --> 00:21:25.280
  • come on.
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:26.250
  • When you know that,
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:29.020
  • this is the blessing
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:29.280
  • of both to know
  • 00:21:29.280 --> 00:21:32.020
  • that what I call good,
  • 00:21:32.220 --> 00:21:35.220
  • what I call bad,
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:37.280
  • God is going to bless both.
  • 00:21:38.210 --> 00:21:41.210
  • Don't you go trying
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:42.140
  • to pluck stuff yourself.
  • 00:21:42.140 --> 00:21:44.130
  • That's above your pay grade.
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:47.070
  • Don't you go on
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:47.240
  • a self-improvement project
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:49.120
  • without God's help.
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:51.010
  • You'll mess up the masterpiece.
  • 00:21:51.010 --> 00:21:54.010
  • God said, "It's all working
  • 00:21:54.010 --> 00:21:55.010
  • together for the good.
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:58.200
  • I'm gonna bless both."
  • 00:21:59.270 --> 00:22:02.290
  • They were singing a minute ago.
  • 00:22:02.290 --> 00:22:05.110
  • Come here, Tiff.
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:06.130
  • She was singing,
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:07.270
  • You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:08.280 --> 00:22:11.280
  • You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:14.070
  • I felt that --
  • 00:22:14.070 --> 00:22:14.290
  • when we were writing
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:16.130
  • that song, I felt it.
  • 00:22:16.130 --> 00:22:18.030
  • She was --
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:18.200
  • we were just singing that.
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:20.040
  • You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:23.200
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:28.000
  • - And we just started
  • 00:22:28.000 --> 00:22:28.210
  • singing that.
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:29.130
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:30.190
  • - Aw, man, I was like,
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:31.160
  • "Yes, Lord, the church
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:33.000
  • is gonna wanna sing this.
  • 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:34.100
  • Come here, come here,
  • 00:22:34.100 --> 00:22:34.260
  • come here.
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:35.200
  • And then I was like --
  • 00:22:35.200 --> 00:22:36.180
  • keep singing it.
  • 00:22:36.180 --> 00:22:37.250
  • But then I was like,
  • 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:38.140
  • "Chris, why don't you help her."
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:41.140
  • And then she sang it.
  • 00:22:41.140 --> 00:22:42.130
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:42.130 --> 00:22:43.230
  • - I said what if they --
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:45.140
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:45.140 --> 00:22:46.190
  • - What if they both --
  • 00:22:46.190 --> 00:22:49.030
  • what if they both --
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:51.070
  • what if they both --
  • 00:22:51.070 --> 00:22:52.220
  • yeah, what if they both.
  • 00:22:52.220 --> 00:22:54.040
  • What if --
  • 00:22:54.040 --> 00:22:54.290
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:22:56.150
  • - You never lost a battle
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.270
  • What if it was both?
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:23:00.150
  • What if it was both?
  • 00:23:00.150 --> 00:23:03.020
  • What if Paul and Silas
  • 00:23:03.020 --> 00:23:05.040
  • start praising God together?
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:08.000
  • What if we come together
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:10.030
  • in His name and begin
  • 00:23:10.030 --> 00:23:11.240
  • to lift Him up?
  • 00:23:11.240 --> 00:23:13.160
  • What if we praise Him?
  • 00:23:13.160 --> 00:23:15.210
  • That all things
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:17.210
  • - Never lost a battle
  • 00:23:19.160 --> 00:23:20.260

  • - No, You never lost

  • A battle
  • 00:23:24.170 --> 00:23:25.100
  • - It's our

  • It's so exciting that people

  • but all over the world.
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:43.150
  • - Yeah and we don't want you
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:44.110

  • maybe a systematic gift,
  • 00:23:53.220 --> 00:23:55.100
  • maybe one-time,
  • 00:23:55.100 --> 00:23:56.110
  • maybe a monthly recurring gift,
  • 00:23:56.110 --> 00:23:57.270
  • but we're calling on all of you

  • you make has a bigger impact
  • 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:07.070
  • than you realize.
  • 00:24:07.070 --> 00:24:08.200
  • Your decision to invest
  • 00:24:08.200 --> 00:24:09.290
  • in this ministry
  • 00:24:09.290 --> 00:24:10.290
  • has changed the game
  • 00:24:10.290 --> 00:24:12.020
  • - I was in desperation for God
  • 00:24:13.270 --> 00:24:15.050
  • to flood my life and take over.
  • 00:24:15.050 --> 00:24:17.020
  • I came across a message
  • 00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:17.270
  • by Pastor Steven on YouTube
  • 00:24:17.270 --> 00:24:19.150
  • and it immediately spoke to me
  • 00:24:19.150 --> 00:24:21.020
  • and began changing
  • 00:24:21.020 --> 00:24:21.170
  • my way of thinking.
  • 00:24:21.170 --> 00:24:22.250
  • I became more connected
  • 00:24:22.250 --> 00:24:23.200
  • with Elevation,
  • 00:24:23.200 --> 00:24:24.150
  • and became connected
  • 00:24:24.150 --> 00:24:25.050
  • to an incredible community
  • 00:24:25.050 --> 00:24:26.100
  • of people, like Nubuke.
  • 00:24:26.100 --> 00:24:28.150
  • - The end of my senior year
  • 00:24:28.150 --> 00:24:29.110
  • in high school
  • 00:24:29.110 --> 00:24:29.280
  • was a very confusing
  • 00:24:29.280 --> 00:24:30.140
  • time for me.
  • 00:24:30.140 --> 00:24:31.090
  • One day, a friend
  • 00:24:31.090 --> 00:24:32.020
  • sent me a link to a sermon,
  • 00:24:32.020 --> 00:24:34.000
  • and hearing that message
  • 00:24:34.000 --> 00:24:34.220
  • set my faith
  • 00:24:34.220 --> 00:24:35.080
  • on a new trajectory.
  • 00:24:35.080 --> 00:24:36.240
  • I joined online group,
  • 00:24:36.240 --> 00:24:38.010
  • my group leader, Patrick,
  • 00:24:38.010 --> 00:24:39.030
  • not only cares for our group
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:40.010
  • when we meet,
  • 00:24:40.010 --> 00:24:41.030
  • but he's also a mentor
  • 00:24:41.030 --> 00:24:42.020
  • - God radically changed my life
  • 00:24:43.190 --> 00:24:44.290
  • just over four years ago.
  • 00:24:44.290 --> 00:24:46.150
  • Elevation was introduced to me
  • 00:24:46.150 --> 00:24:47.150
  • at a time in my life
  • 00:24:47.150 --> 00:24:48.070
  • when I felt disconnected.
  • 00:24:48.070 --> 00:24:49.230
  • I started an online group
  • 00:24:49.230 --> 00:24:50.240
  • and since then,
  • 00:24:50.240 --> 00:24:51.210
  • I've had an opportunity
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:52.200
  • to meet people from
  • 00:24:52.200 --> 00:24:53.080
  • all different walks of life,
  • 00:24:53.080 --> 00:24:55.020
  • - As a kid, I didn't have
  • 00:24:56.030 --> 00:24:56.290
  • much interest in the church,
  • 00:24:56.290 --> 00:24:58.010
  • but my mom refused
  • 00:24:58.010 --> 00:24:59.020
  • to give up on me
  • 00:24:59.020 --> 00:25:00.070
  • and would send me
  • 00:25:00.070 --> 00:25:00.250
  • sermons to watch.
  • 00:25:00.250 --> 00:25:01.240
  • So I eventually gave in,
  • 00:25:01.240 --> 00:25:02.290
  • and watched one of
  • 00:25:02.290 --> 00:25:03.150
  • Pastor Steven's messages
  • 00:25:03.150 --> 00:25:04.220
  • on YouTube.
  • 00:25:04.220 --> 00:25:05.190
  • It changed my perspective
  • 00:25:05.190 --> 00:25:06.150
  • and outlook
  • 00:25:06.150 --> 00:25:07.050
  • on what a relationship with God
  • 00:25:07.050 --> 00:25:08.120
  • could actually look like.
  • 00:25:08.120 --> 00:25:09.200
  • I became an online youth leader
  • 00:25:09.200 --> 00:25:11.040
  • that I wish I would have had
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:12.060
  • in my youth.
  • 00:25:12.060 --> 00:25:13.050
  • So this summer at Youth X,
  • 00:25:13.050 --> 00:25:14.250
  • two of the girls in my group
  • 00:25:14.250 --> 00:25:16.120
  • rededicated their lives
  • 00:25:16.120 --> 00:25:17.140
  • - This story starts with you,
  • 00:25:20.130 --> 00:25:22.040
  • but it doesn't end with you.
  • 00:25:22.040 --> 00:25:23.210
  • What if one decision you make
  • 00:25:23.210 --> 00:25:25.110
  • could impact the world?
  • 00:25:25.110 --> 00:25:26.290
