They ve been married for over sixty years. They ran a church fellowship, and
someone asked in the secret of their success. The man told how he always treated his wife with respect and took her own trips all over the world. He said, in fact, for our twenty fifth wedding anniversary. I took her to Beijing, China. Everyone politely applauded in some one asked: what do you do for your fiftieth winning an adversary. He said I went back and picked her up the Bible, say it like you mean it. This is my bible. And what it says I have what it says I have. I can do what says I can do today. We talk. The word of God, boldly confess mind is alert. My heart is receptive. I will never be the same. In Jesus. May God bless you. I want to talk to you today about it's your due season. We all have things that we believe in four dreams that we want to accomplish. Problems were hoping will turn around. Maybe
It's to see our family restored, lose some weight to break and addiction. To start our own business sometimes as it goes on month after month, even year after year, we don't see anything changing its easy to get discouraging. Think it's. Never happen. This is as good as it gets I'll just learn to live with it. While it is good to be content where we are, we shouldn't lose our expectancy just because it hasn't happened. Yet That means that is not going to happen. There will always be forces trying to convince us to settle where we are now underway, Peter basis. You have to stir your faith, tat God. Has it brought you this far to leave you when he started in your life? He's going to finish you may not. How it's going to work out, but God has away.
When you believe the creator of the universe goes to work in Paul said here in escalation. Six don't get tired of doing what's right for in due season, you will reap. If you don't give up, What our since, in my spirit, is that we are entering in to do see in year a year we're God he's going to show out in your life promises. You been standing all dreams you been praying about in this due season year. God is going to cause things to fall into place. He's going to make things happen that you could make. On your own problems. You been believe in to turn around in due season. Things are going to change in your favour. You may have had that addiction for twenty years you ve tried your best again and again to break it. No success the good
Lucy is this: is your due season? This is your year to be free, or maybe you ve struggled in your fancies. You can't seem to get ahead. You take one step forward. Two steps backwards. Let this phrase sink down into your spirit. Due season is here: promotion is coming good breaks or coming late, is not your destiny constantly struggling, barely getting back is not the end of your story. Keep believing keep expecting Keep honouring God abundance is headed your way in, is due season year. Your cup is going to run over
see. Sometimes you need these words of faith and victory spoken over your life. Words have creative power. If you let them take root in your spirit, they can help ignite your dreams. Ignite your faint ignite. The potential on the inside your mind may try to talk it out of it. You can't figure out how it's going to happen. That's ok, that's not you Job your job is to believe your job is to say yes, God this is for me today. I believe that it's my due season year, lot of people these days struggle with depression, is like a dark cloud. Follows them around and they haven't been able to shake it in the past looks like that's the way it's always going to be, but the difference is you come into a deuce season? God is about to lift you out of that pit.
Set your feet upon a rock and put a new song in your heart in due season, change or broken depression cannot stay. Sadness has to go you going to feel a nuisance of joy and new happiness, a new passion, Your life was talking to a young lady last week and she gone through a break up in a relationship about three years ago and she was very discouraged very lonely, didn't think she had ever meet the right person. I told her What I'm telling you in this due season year, divine connections or come in your way? God is going to bring somebody into your life better than you ever imagined. Now you ve got to get an agreement with gone all through the day. Lord, thank you that twenty thousand fifteen is my due season. Nor I believe this is my year to get healthy and whole
This is my year to meet the people about dreams. This is my year to go further in my career to step into a new level of my destiny. My brother Paul has a sun, Nay Matthew. My nephew at the age of twelve Matt started struggling with depression. He lost all interest in school. He wouldn't engage socially with the other. Students are hardly even his own family. They seem like the more Paul and Jennifer prayed. The worst met became the depression eventually got so bad that he had to drop out of school here. Man is so smart, so talented, but it didn't look like he would force his destiny, the scripture says, if you don't get tired of doing what's right, you will read Paul, didn't see anything changing, but he kept Brian. He can't believe in God you said For me in my house, we will serve the Lord. You said the seed of the writers,
be body in the land. You said you have plans for mad or for good and not evil. Year after year went back no sign of anything improving, but one day, unexpectedly out of the blue, it was like that chains of depression were broken off man. He got his joy back. You got it. In back. He had a whole new outlook on life. He went back and finished high school. He went to college God is bachelors degree went on the law school, God is law degree. Today, man is an attorney working with us here. On staff at Lakewood in the ministry right here in the front row of man is beautiful, wife. Maybe what happened met came into a deuces. Didn't look like you would ever get better, but suddenly onyx.
Actively out of the ordinary things turned in his favor. You may be facing a situation like my brother Paul, but you ve been praying about for a long time, doesn't look like it will ever change. You could easily get discords just accepted. Thank Haiti. Joel I'm! Never going get well, my child never going to straighten up. My business is not going to make it. You need to get ready.
You're, coming into a due season, like with Matt unexpectedly out of the ordinary. Suddenly things are going to change in your favour that business that slow doesn't look like it's going to make it. God knows how to bring your customers new clients cause you to stand out. God can give the ideas, creativity, wisdom, he's called Jehovah Jara, the Lord our provider, one touching his favour can put you fifty years down the road now keep believing keep expecting don't get tired of doing what's right. In other words, don't start complaining that what's not working out, how is never going to resolve it Paul would have gone around saying. I don't think that's ever going to straighten out. I think that depressing is going to get the best,
Matt probably wouldn't be where he is today, stay in faith when you're tempted to get discouraged turn it around Lord. I want to thank you. This is my due season year. This is my you to see increase. This is my year, I concede that baby that we ve been dreaming about This is my year to get free from that chronic pain to see breakthroughs in my life. This is what lady did in the scripture. She had been sick for twelve years with a bleeding disorder. He had been to the best doctors of our day trod different treatment, different medicines, nothing seem to work. She could have thought. This is my lot in life. I've been told by the experts I'll never get well I'll, have to learn to live with it. No deep down this lady knew she was supposed to be healthy and whole did. She was a victory for and not a victim.
They are free and told her tat. Jesus was passing through her town when she heard that somethin rose up on the inside and said. This is your time this is your moment it you do season. She heard what I'm telling you today. Even though she was weak from losing blood, even though every thought told her that she was wasting her tat. She started making her way through the crowd trying to get to Jesus move in people out of the way say an excuse. Me. I need to get through pardon me. I don't mean to be rude, but I'm on a mission. It's my due season. Descriptor says she kept saying to herself. If I can touch him, I know I will be here she didn't just say at once. She said it again and again, healing is coming. Restoration is coming favour is coming. She was filled with its
that see believing that something good was about to happen. As Jesus passed by you know the story she reached out and barely touched, the edge of his robe instantly. She was made home, Jesus stopped said to his disciples, who just touched me. They said Jesus. What do you mean is packed everybody's touching you he said now. Some body touched me with such faith with such expected, see that they drew the miracle working power right out of me about that time. Teases solve this woman. She was afraid nervous, thought she had done something wrong. Jesus smiled and said, daughter, you We're fate has made you home. You are free from this disease. What am I saying when we live with expectancy? It gives gods attention when we go through
day say Lord. I believe this is my due season year. This is my year to accomplish dreams to break free from this depression. This is my year to meet the right people. This is my year to get healthy and whole we're doing exactly what this lady did. Your faith can cause gone to stop in its tracks. What I find interesting is Jesus didn't he'll everyone around him. That day there were other sick people in the crowd, other people that had needs, but he passed on by the difference. Was this lady released her fate? It started in her thinking all through the day we should have this expectancy you have to.
Keep talking to yourself the right way. In other words, if we are facing an illness he can afford to go around saying I don't think I'll ever get better jewel. I've had it so long. I think this is going to be the enemy. No start talking to yourself like this lady. This is my year to get well, God is restored held back into me. The number of my days he will fulfil your struggling in your finances. Not never have enough I'll, never get ahead. No. This is my year to come into overflow. Be debt free to lend not borrow blessings are chasing me down, favours around me like a she'll, whatever I touch prosper sense. Seeds. If you're lonely, not any of this never meet the right person. I'm too old. I dont have a good person. Actually, I'm not that attracted zip. That up this is my for divine connections, God is directed Master
bringing the right people across my hair. Maybe you ve been through a disappointment. Last year you had a setback and you could easily under the new year with the poor old me mentality. Think just my luck always get these bad grace. No turn it around. This is your year to see beauty for ashes. What was meant for your harm? God is going to use to your advantage. The best part of your life is right up in front of you. You we have had a setback, but really it was a set for God to do something better. Zacharias said, if you will be a prisoner of hope, God will pay you back twice,
for what you lost this issue a year to see double. This is your year for vindication, for restoration, for new beginnings. Now, get your mind going in the right direction, start talking to yourself the right way. This is one reason that we don't see gods best. Our mind is in neutral, like the other people that were around Jesus, that day that didn't get healed, we're not think in anything bad, but we're not releasing our thing. There's no expectancy faith is what causes God to work. You can be at the right place at the right time, but because you are in the wrong frame of mind, you'll miss gods best. This lady was at the right place at the right time. Jesus was passing by, but, unlike the other people, she was in the right frame of mind. Expecting things to change expect
in healing expecting a breakthrough. She saw it come to pass today. You are at the right place. You were at the right time, God destined due to be here in this two out of three already good, but number three is the deal breaker. Are you in the right frame of mind. Do you believe this is your due season year, Do you believe it? You hear por favor in Greece, a reservation for new beginnings. Jesus is passing by right now, so to speak, he's not moved by our needs. There are
Winnie of needs, he's concerned about our needs, but he's moved about our faith. It's easy that they would all the medical report says: I'm not going to get well. My business is never going to make it. This legal situation is never going to resolve. No shake off the doubt, shake off the negativity you at the right place you at the right time now all you gotta do is get in the right frame of mind. Do like slighted. Lord. I want to thank you. This is my due season year. This is my year to step into leadership, to finish school, to break the addiction to come into overflow, to meet the person of my dreams. If you'll keep say to yourself thanking God in advance,. You better get ready. God he's going to show out in your life he's going to take you where you can
not go on your own opening doors that no man can shut connecting you to the right people he's going to restore what you thought was over. India is going to happen suddenly, unexpectedly out of the ordinary to where you look up and say. Well, I didn't see that coming most of the time when we hear that phrase, I didn't say that coming it's about the negative, it's about a bad bright last mama incline? Joel didn't see their common got. A bad medical report didn't see that come in or my friend walked out on. My left me for somebody else, didn't see that coming, but in is due season year gods going to turn it around. Just gotta promotion didn't see that come in. Child made straight aids in school did see they're coming. Moved into a beautiful new house, didn't see that come in of turned around. I feel better than ever didn't see that come
You remember that all countries song that said, let's give them something to talk about this year, gods going to get you something to talk about he's gonna, make you an example of his goodness that lady that was healed after twelve years of being sick. I'm sure everywhere? She wouldn't. Let me tell you what the Lord has done for me. She had something to talk about. You hear me tell it all the time about how God he's my mother from terminal cancer. What happened? God gave us something to talk about when my father went to be with the Lord God, help me to step up and passed through the Georgian he's taken as places we ve never dream. What is that? God was giving us something to talk God bring in my nephew man out of depression. What was God giving us something else to talk about
every one of you can look back in your life and see a time where God made a way. When you didn't see a way, he put you at the right place. You met that person and fell in love. He protected your child from that accident. He gave you the promotion, even though you weren't the most qualified to turn that problem around he's. Giving you something to talk about We cannot tell you, you haven't seen anything yet what God has in this due season year is going to be bigger, better more rewarding than anything you ve seen in the past. I know this man lives in another city. He would come to Houston several times a year for treatment at India. Anderson are cancer hospital, He had an incurable disease. This had been going on for about six years only way he could continue living was to keep taken these treatments. They had a good attitude about it. I was seamen the lobbies he said, George, I'm just blessed to be here today, the last time he came in town,
His doctor, one of the leading cancer specialist, said in all my years of practice. I've never seen this happen, but this disease that you have this supposed to be incurable for summary, seeing it slowly starting to fade away. You don't need to take these. Miss anymore, this man was so excited. He had already planned on taken that treatment for the rest of his life. He didn't see that coming God gave him something to talk about You need to get ready in this due season year, you're gonna, look like him and say well paid my house all didn't see that coming broke. The addiction didn't see that come in or my family member. They used to party all the time these while now he's coming to charged with me, making good decisions or, in its destiny sure didn't see that coming the scripture says we
honor God, with your life. When you keep him first place, his blessings will chase you down and over thank you. We ve all had negative things overtake us, life happens, but don't get stuck expecting the negative this year, God is going to turn the table. Good breaks chasing you day, favour healing opportunity chasing after you. One definition of the word overtake is to catch by surprise. When it says gods, blessings will overtake you, you could say, God he's going to surprise you suddenly, unexpectedly, out of the ordinary, a good break, a healing promotion, a divine connection. I was at a book sunny in New York City one time and this young couple came up to the table very excited. They told how was at that same book store a couple of years earlier. They had never met before.
But it just so happens. They were standing in line next to each other. They met that day. They became friends and started dating a year and a half later they got married. They came up and said: George today We are celebrating a one year waiting anniversary. They were simply going to a book signing to get a book signed and it was like, God, said, surprise. Let me put the person of your dreams, Roddy inland. Next to you. There were over a thousand people in line that day they could have been fifty people in apart and they would have never man but God knows how to connect you to the right people He knows how to get you to your destiny. You have no idea what God has in store for you. He has some surprises that if he showed you right now, it would babo your mind in this
seizing year, things that you been playin about going to suddenly fall into place. The right people show up the right opportunities out of the ordinary unexpectedly gods, going to give you something to talk about David said it this way, twenty seven, where would I be? If I had not believed I would see the goodness of God, I wonder how many blessings we're missing out on how much favour increase we're, not seeing simply because we're not expecting it not releasing our faint David was saying in effect, if our not believed. Maybe I wouldn't have defeated Goliath. Maybe I wouldn't have taken the throne of Israel. Maybe I wouldn't have recovered my family, my possessions, when my city of zig leg was burned down. Where would I be if I had not believed the scripture talks about how God has blessings
stored up for those that love the Lord. There are blessings that have your name on them right now that are stored up. There is promotion stored up for you healing, stored that baby you ve, been dreaming about its stored up gods already destined to be yours, but if you never believe, if you think your this is not what happened for me. I never get me good breaks or God would never bless me. I've made too many mistakes. I could never pay. My house offer you kid ness out of the question. That kind of thinking will keep you from gods best. Why don't you try a different and say God, I believe you wanna be good to me. I believe you have surprises in my future. I believe this is by due season year When you live with this expectancy, God can give you something to talk about. You look up and say like that,
Where would I be if I had not believed to see the goodness of God, some friends of man we're moving to another state to start a church? They flew into town I found a house, they don't all of their research. They knew they wanted to live and what kind of house their light knows. This one particular builder that they were very fond They went to see some of his model homes. The salesman came out and said you are welcome to look, but don't get your hopes up. There's a year and a half way for any of our house is so many people were bring into that city? Would they didn't have a year and a half way there were about to leave the last minute the husband said. Well, what are we look at some of these models just to check a mountain. They went up and down the street looked at about twelve different homes, just as they were. Poland out, the salesman came running over to them and asked them which house model they like the best they told the particular.
One he was holding in his hand a contract that had just fallen through. He showed this couple. It was the exact model they were looking for, He said there are over two hundred people inland in front of you, I'm supposed to call the next one on the list, but something told me to come out here and offer this house. You. They said we appreciate that, but we are only like it if it was on a cul de sac overlooking the city he said get in the car. He took them to the house. It was on a quiet, cul de SAC, with a beautiful view of the city. They signed the contract moved in a few weeks later. That was one of those blessings. God heads for them. They left that data, and while we didn't see that coming, you need to get ready in this due season year, God has some surprise is in store for you.
Some of those blessings that he's had stored up he's about to release is going to happen. Suddenly, unexpectedly, out of the ordinary friends you're at the right place, you're at the right time, I'm asking you to get the right frame of mind all through the day, like the lady that touch Jesus. Lord, I want to thank you that this is my due season year. Keep expecting keep believing keep honouring God few do that leave and declare tuna.
