parody ten million dollars and said pastor first thing i do is give half of it to the church at that point the pastor then say it like you mean it this is survival i am what it says i am it says i have i can do what it says i can do today i will be taught the word of god i boldly confess my mind is alert my heart is deceptive i will never be the same in g may god bless you i want to talk to you today about look again we all have dreams that we've given up on and problems we don't think we'll turn around it's been too long we made too mistakes too often we accepted is the way it's always going to be but just because you ve given up does it mean that god giving up he hasn't brought you this far to leave you where you are
what he started in your life he's going to finish you may have had some disappointment the medical report wasn't good the business didn't make it you still haven't met the right person you've made like it over to you but god is saying look again that dream you ve given porn i'm still going to bring it to pass that child you think we'll never get back on course look again he's going to fulfil his destiny you think you're going to be single the rest of your life look again it's already lined up somebody better than you can imagine now do your part and start looking again as long as you think it's never going to work out this way too long that will keep you from the new things god has in store who told you you're not going to love again who told you you're not going to be healthy again who told you you can accomplish your dreams
that didn't come from god don't believe those lies start looking again maybe the loan for the house didn't go through people don't have the final say god does look at you weren't able to have the baby don't let that convince you that you're never going to have it look again there's a baby with your name on them you haven't been able to break the addiction now you're learning to live with it look again freedom belongs to you home this is in your future get your passion back stir up your faye what god promised you he's still going to bring to pass mortar eight they bought a blind man to jesus and ask him to heal him jesus made mud and put it on that man's eyes and prayed for him he asked if he could see anything he said yes
can see but it's not clear i see people walking as trees jesus prayed for him a second this time his vision was perfectly clear it significant that jesus prayed for him the first time and he didn't get completely healed it's not like jesus didn't have enough power that day are somehow he made a mistake jesus he'll people all that this was a test when jesus asked the man if he could see he all i knew that his vision wasn't clear he wanted to see how the man would respond the man could have said yes i can see it's not perfect
but i'm satisfied thanks for doing this he could have settled for blurred vision he could have walked away and thought this is not exactly what i was believing for but it's better than it was at least i can see something if he would have accepted it he would have missed god's best he had to be willing to look again when it wasn't completely healed he was honest with jesus he could have been intimidated this is the one of god this is a respected healer i can't tell him that it didn't work out i have to pretend that it's all okay instead he was vulnerable took a lot of nerve to say i can't see clearly it's not what it should be jesus didn't get upset so you need to have more faith what's wrong with you i hear people all the time
jesus didn't condemn him didn't make him feel less than he touched him look again he was saying it's okay that you're not where you thought you would be it's okay you can't see clearly yet i'm not through with you i have a second touch god already knew what wouldn't work out the first time the medical report wouldn't be good he knew you wouldn't get the promotion the relationship wouldn't work out like this man he's waiting to see what you going to do are you going to settle there i think i'm lonely but it's okay i'm barely make but i have got a roof over my head my dreams haven't worked out but
i'm doing good enough don't settle for blurred vision don't give up on what god has put in your heart he has a second touch he's waiting for you to look again the first touch brought you to where you are the second touch is going to thrust you into abundance integrate relationship in the divine hell into the folds of your destiny talk to a young lady that had gone through six miscarriages she was so discouraged she had big tears running down her cheeks cian decided that she wasn't going to try anymore the doctors told her it would continue to for some reason or wound couldn't carried the baby at all what i'm telling you you have to look again there's
baby that belongs to you sometimes the most difficult prayer is the prayer for what hasn't worked out the prayer for what we failed at to pray again for the baby to believe again for the dream this is when many people get talked out of god's best i could this young lady she took the heart what i said for added to change i could see faith and hope and are a couple of years later i saw her after the service she was carrying a beautiful baby girl i'll never get the look on this young lady's face she was beaming with joy she said you're my doctors are amazed they don't understand it but i know it was the goodness of god friends controls the universe he can do what medicine cannot do you may have had a disappointment settle where you are weeping may in
for a night but joy is coming in the morning if it didn't work out the first time look again didn't work out the second time look again looking keep dream and key plant life this young lady you're going to see what god promised you this is what elijah had to do there had been a drought in some areas for three and a half years it was so severe people were barely surviving barely had enough food and god spoke to him and told him it was going to rain he went up on mount carmel and begin to pray and at one point he said that his assistant go out and look on the other side of the mountain and see if there is any sign of weighing the young men went out back a little later said no elijah there's no
cloud in the sky it's just as clear as can be elijah could have become discouraged god you said it was going to rain maybe i heard you wrong there's no sign of it elijah understood this principle what god promised he will bring the past he told the young man to go back and look again he came back the second time same thing nothing elijah perfectly clear the elijah didn't let these negative reports talk him out of he told him to go back and look again third time nothing look again fourth time nothing look again fifth time still nothing don't you know thoughts came to elijah saying you awake in his time can't you get the message five times this drought is permanent just accepted here let those thoughts go in one ear and out the other
i know it's on the way any moment it's going to happen this expectancy believe and it's going to happen that's your faith being released what allows god to do amazing things the young men came back six times larger still nothing how long are we going to do this i'm getting tired elijah said do me a favor go back and look again on the seventh tat did young man came back and said this time i saw a little cloud starting to form it's not much i'll get your hopes up just about the size of a man's hand i just sent word to the king saying you need to get your chariot and take all there's about to be a downpour it wasn't any time before the heavens opened up the three and a half year drought came to an end
i wonder if allied you would have seen the rain if he had given up after the first and third time or fifth time what have you to come off the mountain thought this drought is just meant to be if he would have accepted it we wouldn't be talking about it you have to do like elijah and have them don't mind that you are going to keep looking can you see the promise come to pass the medical report may not be good looking healing is on the way see how you could get out of debt look again abundance is in your future you haven't been able to break the fiction i went to rehab look again i went to counseling look again i prayed and it hasn't happened look again what you can't see is while you're looking god is by on the same line and up the right people array
good brakes healing promotion deliverance that cloud is starting to form you maybe in a drought you been looking a long time faithful doing the right thing doesn't look like it's doing any good god is saying you're about to come into your seventh time about to see a sign of what god is doing don't let the little boy you it may be small but it's going to turn in to a big deal suddenly and abundance of favor and abundance of healing and abundance of good ranks don't get talked out of it don't let negative circumstances what you don't see changing venture accept what has it worked out look again and again and again when you keep looking your and god i know you're bigger than this sickness
greater than this addiction more powerful than this opposition believe you restore and health academy i believe i will lend and not borrow i believe as for me and my whole house we will serve the lord asking you to store your faith out what you giving up on promises you let go of dreams you think are too far gone start believing again god is still going to bring them to pass that house you tried to buy and it didn't work out it wasn't the right one look again you are turned down for that promotion it wasn't god has something better look again somebody walked out of a relationship they did you wrong that is how your story ends look again there's another chapter there's a new beginning with somebody better than you ve ever dream
you wouldn't be alive unless god something amazing up in front of you lady in the scripture named elizabeth she was married zachary ryan she had been barren for many years not able to have a child when they were both very old when an angel appeared to her husband and said elizabeth was going to have a baby and they were to name him john she conceived and she was so happy after years of being barren a dream come true she was finally pregnant the first few months everything was great i can imagine she was getting the baby's room prepared
friends we're coming over celebrating with her she'd never been this exciting but after several months she started to get worried she didn't feel any movement in the womb four months no movement five months no movement six months still no movement thought started telling her don't be too happy this is not going to have a good in your baby is not alive about that time there was a knock on her door it was her cousin a young lady named mary angel had just appeared to marry and said she was going to have a baby without knowing a man and he would be the son of god she asked what happened the angel said the holy spirit will come on you and cause conceive for with god nothing is impossible
when elizabeth answered the door and saw mary standing there the scripture says at the sound of marries greeting the baby lead elizabeth will further first time she knew her baby was alive why did that baby leave when mary greeted her mary was carrying in her spirit what the angel had just told her with god nothing is impossible what he promised bring the past when mary simply said hello elizabeth the faith in her voice brought the life the promise in elizabeth's room you may be carrying something today that you feel he's dead a dream a relationship a promise you know god gave it to you you used to be excited used to tell people but you haven't felt any movement
you don't see any sign of it happening been you don't see how you'll get well how your marriage will make it how you'll start that business the baby feels like is not alive sometimes all you need for someone like married to show up and speak life into your spirit i believe the reason you feel something stirring on the inside the reason faith is rising something says yes this is for me i know my dream is still alive is because god using me as your mary that's your baby kicking i'm telling you what she told elizabeth with god nothing is impossible what he started he's going to finish it not too late to all you have it it's too many opportunities can i encourage you you are right on schedule
baby is coming your healing is coming your breakthrough is coming your abundance is coming i believe somebody's baby just kicked please baby just woke up it's been asleep a long time you didn't think it could happen you had setbacks delays people came against you nobody supported you get ready you're about to give birth this is a new day god is breathing in your direction in a new way he's going to give you favor that you haven't had you coming into an anointing of eve where things are going to fall into place god is going to vindicate you for what wasn't fair right now he's from table before you in the press love your enemies you might not see how this could happen but god has all kinds of ways that we've never thought of like mary
favor of god is going to call you to go where you could not go on your own you going to dreams were you didn't have the talent the connections the experience doors are going to open that you couldn't open opportunity is going to track you down what you thought was dead is about to come july that stirring in your spirit that your baby kicking that's a sign that what god promised you is still alive now keep your face turned up live with this expectancy it may not have happened yet that doesn't mean it's still not going to happen that's back didn't cancel gods plan it was a set up for god to take
you further that delay is not going to stop you god is still going to do what he promised at twelve years old my brother paul had a dream to do medical missions he was on a trip in africa with my fathering while waiting for the plane tours fuel in a small nation called northern rhodesia he felt the desire to come back and help the p he went on to medical school and started his practice is a surgeon very successful was the chief of surgery helping to run the hospital he tried several times to take mission strips but just didn't work out he had too much responsibility one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine when my father went to be with the lord afternoon twenty years paul left his medical practice came back to houston to help us pastor the turn he thought his dream of doing
the commission's was over and been out of medicine for years when a friend called and asked he would go overseas with a group of doctors just to see what they were doing all agree when he was there they took him to the operating room and said we need you operate on these people he said i have a created in years i just came they said we need you right now paul unexpectedly came out of retirement that day and started operating again i just thank god i wasn't his first patient coming back a little warmed up that dream was over he thought he stepped out of medicine but because you gave up doesn't mean god has given that baby is still in there now paul spends up to five months a year in africa operating back in the village
where they barely have electricity a while back he was in zambia he noticed an old map zambia used to be called northern rhodesia he was at the exact place where the dream was put in his heart forty years earlier as a twelve year old boy at twelve that was the first touch when the dream planet in his heart at fifty six that was the second touch with god to a new level of his destiny what am i saying what god started in your life is going to finish is there something you've given up on doesn't look like it could ever happen now it's been too long you've missed too many opportunities look again god wouldn't have given you the dream if he wasn't still planning on bringing it to pass don't talk yourself out of it you've experienced the first touch
the second touch is coming there to say like the blind man god i can't see clearly my dreams have it come to pass yet god you blessed me i'm grateful but i'm asking for the full my destiny i'm asking for the dream to put in me as a child i'm asking to become all you created me to be when you're honest with when you're bold enough to ask get ready for the second touch get ready for to make things happen that you couldn't make happen it was a young couple that had a baby that had severe autism for years she never talked or communicated in any way the day she would flail her arms and have uncontrollable meltdowns at seven years old the authorities tried to convince the parents to put her in a special home they told her there was no chance of her improving and she didn't
sand of love that they were showing that they were basically wasting their time these parents wouldn't hear of it they kept spa faith over their daughter and telling her how much they loved her how special she was how she was going to do great things at eleven years old having never communicated she sat down at the computer and type these words i have autism but this is not who i am i am i am funny and then i love that you're always there for me to hold my hand and pick me up when i they realized she understood them the whole time teen she wrote her first novel she continued to defy the odds doing things told she could never do god the final say the things you ve are impossible a voice is no way can happen you're child will never get well
