The Keys That Unlock the Door – Part 2 | Enjoying Everyday Life

The Keys That Unlock the Door – Part 2 | Enjoying Everyday Life


ANNOUNCER: THIS PROGRAM HAS
BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY THE FRIENDS AND PARTNERS
OF JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES. JOYCE: YOU CANNOT HAVE
FAITH IF YOU DON’T HAVE HOPE. YOU KNOW WHAT HOPE IS? A POSITIVE EXPECTATION THAT
SOMETHING GOOD IS GONNA HAPPEN TO YOU AT ANY MOMENT. [MUSIC] JOYCE: GOD WANTS TO GIVE
YOU DISCERNMENT AND HE CAN GIVE YOU DISCERNMENT EVEN
ABOUT TIMING. WHEN I NEED TO TALK TO DAVE
ABOUT SOMETHING THAT COULD BE VOLATILE, I NEVER DO IT
WITHOUT PRAYING FIRST THAT GOD WILL GIVE ME THE PERFECT
TIMING, AND SHOW ME EXACTLY WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. WE DON’T JUST DO THINGS WHEN
WE WANNA DO THEM OR DO WHAT WE FEEL LIKE DOING. WE GOT THIS COMMUNICATION
THING GOING ON WITH JESUS, AND WE’RE ALWAYS ASKING HIM
TO HELP US IN EVERY SITUATION. WE WALK BY FAITH. WE LIVE BY FAITH. BUT FAITH IS ALL ABOUT
BELIEVING WHAT THIS SAYS MORE THAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE
OR FEEL. COME ON, IS ANYBODY WITH ME,
TODAY? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND I’LL TELL YOU
WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO. I WANT YOU TO TURN YOUR
FAITH LOOSE. I THINK SOME OF YOU JUST NEED
TO BE STIRRED UP AGAIN IN BELIEVING GOD FOR GREATER
THINGS. THAT’S WHAT PAUL TOLD TIMOTHY,
“STIR UP YOUR FAITH,” FAN THAT FLAME. MAYBE SOME OF YOU, AT ONE TIME,
REALLY WERE BELIEVING GOD FOR SOMETHING THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE,
AND YOU JUST WAITED SO LONG AND HAD SO MUCH TROUBLE
THAT YOU’VE JUST LOST SIGHT OF THE WHOLE THING. AND MAYBE GOD WANTS TO REIGNITE
YOU TODAY AND GET YOU ON-FIRE AGAIN, AND GET YOU TO STIR
YOUR FAITH UP. DON’T JUST KINDA JUST LIKE,
“MONDAY… TUESDAY… WEDNESDAY… THURSDAY… FRIDAY… SATURDAY…” [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: YOU’RE NOT TOO OLD
TO DO SOMETHING NEW. COME ON. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND YOU DON’T
BELIEVE ME. I–
[SOFT CLAP] [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: I DIDN’T EVEN GO
ON TV TILL I WAS 52. WHO STARTS SOMETHING LIKE THAT
AT 52? [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: AND I’VE BEEN
ON TELEVISION 25, 26 YEARS, SO IT DOESN’T TAKE YOU LONG
TO FIGURE OUT HOW OLD I AM IF YOU CAN COUNT. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: SO, DON’T TELL ME
YOU’RE TOO OLD TO DO SOMETHING. AMEN? AUDIENCE: AMEN. JOYCE: AND DON’T TELL ME,
“I GOT TOO MANY KIDS.” WHEN I STARTED THIS MINISTRY,
I HAD THREE TEENAGERS AND A BABY. AND I’D STICK THAT BABY ON MY
HIP AND WE’D JUST TAKE OFF AND GO. AMEN? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: ALRIGHT, JOYCE,
TRY TO GET BACK ON TRACK HERE. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: FAITH IS THE KEY
TO THOSE KINGDOM PROMISES. 1 PETER 1:3-9, “BLESSED BE THE
GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! ACCORDING TO HIS GREAT MERCY,
HE HAS CAUSED US TO BE BORN AGAIN,” I LOVE THIS,
“INTO A LIVING HOPE THROUGH THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST
FROM THE DEAD.” I AM NOT BORN AGAIN INTO
NEGATIVITY AND HOPELESSNESS. I AM BORN AGAIN INTO
A LIVING HOPE. AND LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. YOU CANNOT HAVE FAITH IF YOU
DON’T HAVE HOPE. YOU KNOW WHAT HOPE IS? A POSITIVE EXPECTATION THAT
SOMETHING GOOD IS GONNA HAPPEN TO YOU AT ANY MOMENT. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: COULD YOU START
LIVING LIKE THAT? “SOMETHING GOOD IS GONNA
HAPPEN TO ME TODAY.” [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: “AND SOMETHING GOOD
IS GONNA HAPPEN THROUGH ME TODAY.”
YOU GET UP IN THE MORNING, YOU DON’T FEEL GOOD, AND YOUR
BACK’S ACHING, AND YOU CAN’T STAND YOUR JOB, AND YOUR HOUSE
IS DIRTY AND YOU’RE JUST LIKE… [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: WELL, SHAKE IT OFF. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: GET A BETTER
PERSPECTIVE. “I’M ALIVE. I’M BREATHING. JESUS LOVES ME. I’M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN. SOMETHING GOOD IS GONNA HAPPEN
TO ME TODAY.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: LISTEN TO 1 JOHN
5:4, “THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD –
OUR FAITH.” OKAY, NOW, I LOVE THIS. I GET SO EXCITED EVERY TIME
I READ THIS. THIS IS CONTINUING ON IN
1 PETER, HE’S GIVEN US, “AN INHERITANCE THAT IS
IMPERISHABLE, UNDEFILED, AND UNFADING, KEPT IN HEAVEN
FOR YOU, WHO BY GOD’S POWER, BEING GUARDED THROUGH FAITH
FOR A SALVATION READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME.”
IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT WE KNOW NOW, IS JUST A LITTLE, TEENY,
TINY BIT OF WHAT WE GOT COMING. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE DEPOSIT
OF THE GOOD THINGS THAT ARE TO COME. NOW SEE–MAYBE, THIS AFFECTS
ME DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU, BUT I’M LIKE, I REALLY BELIEVE
WHAT I’M SAYING. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: I DIDN’T JUST
PERFECTLY CRAFT TOGETHER THIS LITTLE MESSAGE. I MEAN, I BELIEVE THIS STUFF. AND I HOPE THAT I BELIEVE IT
STRONG ENOUGH THAT GOD CAN USE ME TO CONVINCE YOU. THERE’S MORE TO LIFE THAN JUST
GETTING UP AND GOING TO BED… AND GETTING UP AND GOING–
NOW, THAT’S PART OF IT. BUT SEE, THE THING ABOUT BEING
A BELIEVER IS YOU CAN HAVE A SUPERNATURALLY GOOD TIME
IN THE MIDST OF DOING SAME, OLD, ORDINARY STUFF THAT YOU
DO EVERYDAY. I MEAN, YOU CAN ENJOY TAKING
THE GARBAGE OUT. YOU CAN ENJOY GOING TO THE
GROCERY STORE. YOU CAN ENJOY DRIVING
IN TRAFFIC. ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS KEEP
A RIGHT PERSPECTIVE. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND PRAY EVERY
MORNING, “GOD, PUT A HAND ON MY COMPLAINING MOUTH. DON’T LET ME DO IT.”
LET’S PLAY THE GLAD GAME. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: COME ON, NO MATTER
WHAT THE ENEMY TRIES TO DO, FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE TO SAY. SOMETHING–CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE
IF EVERYBODY WHO HAS A FISH ON THEIR CAR… [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: A CROSS AROUND THEIR
NECK, IF EVERYBODY WHO GOES OFF TO A CHURCH SOMEWHERE
ON SUNDAY MORNING WOULD JUST BE POSITIVE? MAN, WE NEED GOOD NEWS
OUT THERE. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: “IN THIS YOU REJOICE,
THOUGH NOW FOR A LITTLE WHILE, IF NECESSARY, YOU’VE BEEN
GRIEVED BY VARIOUS TRIALS, SO THAT THE TESTED GENUINENESS
OF YOUR FAITH–WHICH IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD THAT PERISHES
THOUGH IT IS TESTED BY FIRE–MAY BE FOUND TO RESULT IN PRAISE
AND GLORY AND HONOR AT THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST.”
BUT NOW, LISTEN TO THIS. “THOUGH YOU HAVE NOT SEEN HIM,
YOU LOVE HIM. THOUGH YOU DO NOT NOW SEE HIM,
YOU BELIEVE IN HIM AND YOU REJOICE WITH JOY THAT
IS INEXPRESSIBLE AND FILLED WITH GLORY.” [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: THAT’S OUR HERITAGE. DON’T TRY TO TELL ME THAT
JESUS IS NOT REAL. IT IS TOO LATE FOR ME. I’VE EXPERIENCED TOO MUCH IN MY
LIFE AND SEEN GOD DO TOO MUCH. AND I CAN’T EXPLAIN IT ALL BUT
I KNOW, THAT I KNOW, THAT I KNOW THAT HE IS COMING BACK FOR US. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: AND EVEN IF YOU NEVER
HAD ONE GOOD DAY THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, IT’S GONNA BE
WORTH HANGING IN THERE JUST FOR THE ETERNITY. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WHEN YOU DIE,
THERE’S ONLY TWO PLACES– YOU ONLY GOT TWO OPTIONS
OF WHERE TO GO. AND IF YOU’RE EVEN A LITTLE
BIT SMART, YOU’LL KNOW WHAT THE BEST CHOICE IS. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: NOW, IT DOESN’T COST
US ANYTHING TO BELIEVE. AND YOU KNOW, IF YOU’RE POSITIVE
AND YOU BELIEVE SOMETHING GOOD, EVEN IF YOU’RE JUST MAKING
IT UP, AT LEAST YOU’D BE HAPPY. RIGHT? AND I SAY ALL THE TIME IF
I SPEND MY LIFE BELIEVING THIS AND I’M WRONG, IT DIDN’T–
I DIDN’T LOSE ANYTHING. BUT IF YOU SPEND YOUR LIFE NOT
BELIEVING AND YOU’RE WRONG…. AUDIENCE MEMEBER: UH-OH. JOYCE: UH-OH. THAT AIN’T GONNA BE PRETTY. SO, IF I WERE YOU, I’D GO AHEAD
AND BELIEVE, JUST IN CASE. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: OH MY GOSH,
I GOTTA GET GOING HERE. ROMANS 14:17, “THE KINGDOM
OF GOD IS NOT MEAT AND DRINK;” OR LET’S JUST SAY, “STUFF.”
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT ABOUT STUFF, BUT IT IS–
HERE’S WHAT THE KINGDOM IS. “RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY
IN THE HOLY GHOST.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: NOW, HERE’S THREE
THINGS THAT I HAVE NOW, THROUGH FAITH, THROUGH
A RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST THAT I NEVER HAD BEFORE CHRIST. I AM IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD
THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. GOD IS NOT MAD AT ME. HE LOVES ME. AND I DON’T HAVE TO WASTE ONE
MINUTE OF MY LIFE FEELING GUILTY AND CONDEMNED. BECAUSE WHEN I DO SOMETHING
WRONG, I REPENT, I’M SORRY. GOD FORGIVES ME. HE FORGETS IT, AND I FORGET
IT, TOO. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND SOME OF YOU NEED
TO, NOT ONLY HEAR WHAT I’M SAYING, BUT YOU NEED TO SAY,
“I’M TAKING THAT, THAT’S FOR ME.”
GOD FORGIVES US AND HE FORGETS THEM. “HE REMOVES OUR SINS AS FAR AS
THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST.” I LOVE THE CHOICE OF LANGUAGE. WHO CAN FIGURE OUT HOW FAR
THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST? HE REMEMBERS THEM NO MORE. SO, WHY DON’T YOU STOP TALKING
TO GOD ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HE’S FORGOTTEN? HOW ABOUT IF YOU FORGET IT TOO? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: “LETTING GO OF WHAT
LIES BEHIND AND PRESSING ON.” IT’S SO WONDERFUL TO FEEL
GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. ISN’T THAT WONDERFUL? YOU CAN LIKE YOURSELF. YOU CAN LOVE WHO YOU ARE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMPARE
YOURSELF WITH OTHER PEOPLE. AND PEACE… UH, MY GOSH, TO LIVE IN REST. WHOO, AND JOY. JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL
OF GLORY. NOW, MOVING ON HERE. THE BIBLE SAYS WE’RE TO WELCOME
THE KINGDOM LIKE A LITTLE CHILD. NOW, THERE’S SOME INTERESTING
THINGS ABOUT KIDS THAT WE LOSE AS WE GROW UP. FOR EXAMPLE, WHATEVER HAPPENED
TO RECESS? [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: WE USED TO GET
RECESS, AND NOW WE JUST WORK ALL THE TIME. I THINK WE SHOULD GO BACK
TO HAVING ADULT RECESSES. WHAT DO YOU THINK? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WHAT’D WE DO
AT RECESS? WE WENT OUT AND PLAYED. AMEN? OKAY, LUKE 18:17, “TRULY, I SAY
TO YOU, WHOEVER DOES NOT RECEIVE,” EVERYBODY SAY,
“RECEIVE.” AUDIENCE: RECEIVE. JOYCE: DOESN’T SAY GET,
IT SAYS, “RECEIVE.” “WHOEVER DOES NOT RECEIVE THE
KINGDOM OF GOD, LIKE A CHILD SHALL NOT ENTER IN.”
IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU’RE GONNA BELIEVE THINGS THAT YOU
CAN’T SEE, THAT YOU SEE IN YOUR HEART, BUT YOU DON’T SEE
WITH YOUR EYES, THEN YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO BE A LITTLE BIT
CHILD-LIKE. YOU KNOW, IF A THREE-YEAR
OLD’S DADDY TELLS HIM TO JUMP OFF OF THE SIDE OF THE
SWIMMING POOL INTO WATER THAT’S WAY OVER HIS HEAD, AND
DADDY WILL CATCH YOU, HE JUMPS. HE’S NOT THINKING ABOUT
THE WATER OR WORRIED ABOUT DROWNING. ALL HE KNOWS IS DADDY’S
FAITHFUL. DADDY LOVES ME. DADDY WILL CATCH ME. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? WHEN GOD TELLS YOU TO JUMP… I SAID, “WHEN GOD TELLS YOU
TO JUMP…” [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: YOU DON’T HAVE TO
KEEP WORKING AT A JOB THE REST OF YOUR LIFE THAT YOU HATE. YOU CAN JUMP AND GO DO SOMETHING
YOU LIKE. EVEN IF YOU MAKE LESS MONEY,
IT’S BETTER TO BE HAPPY WITH LESS MONEY THAN TO BE MISERABLE
WITH A BIG BANK ACCOUNT. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WE CALL IT,
“A LEAP OF FAITH.” THOSE WHO ARE CHILD-LIKE
ARE CALLED, “GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.”
JESUS CALLED–JESUS– “AT THAT TIME THE DISCIPLES
CAME TO JESUS, SAYING, ‘WHO’S THE GREATEST
IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN?'” I’M IN MATTHEW 18:1-4. “AND CALLING TO HIM A CHILD,
HE PUT HIM IN THE MIDST OF THEM AND SAID, ‘TRULY,
I SAY TO YOU, UNLESS YOU TURN AND BECOME LIKE CHILDREN,
YOU WILL NEVER ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.'”
NOW, THAT’S NOT TALKING ABOUT YOU WON’T GO TO HEAVEN. THAT’S TALKING ABOUT ENTERING
INTO THIS KINGDOM LIFE THAT I’M TRYING TO TALK TO YOU
ABOUT TODAY THAT WE CAN HAVE. IN THE WORLD BUT NOT
OF THE WORLD. IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT–BUT
KNOWING THAT THERE’S A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN WHAT WE SEE. TWO THINGS ABOUT CHILDREN
THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT IS THEY ARE TRUSTING AND THEY FORGIVE
SO QUICKLY. I MEAN, LITTLE JOHNNY CAN BE
READY TO TEAR HENRY’S HEAD OFF AND FIVE MINUTES LATER,
THEY’LL HAVE THEIR ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER, WALKING DOWN
THE STREET, BEST BUDS IN THE WHOLE WORLD. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: COME ON, WHO ARE
YOU MAD AT? YOU’RE PROBABLY THINKING,
“OH, I WISH SO-AND-SO WOULD HAVE BEEN HERE TODAY. WELL, THEY’RE NOT BUT YOU ARE,
SO THERE MUST BE SOMETHING FOR YOU. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND SEE, WE RECEIVE
BY FAITH. GOD SAYS, “YOUR SINS
ARE FORGIVEN.” YOU RECEIVE THAT BY FAITH. I CAN’T PROVE IT TO YOU
IN THE NATURAL. BUT IF YOU REALLY RECEIVE IT
BY FAITH, THEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE CONDEMNED. WHEN WE DO WRONG THINGS
THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD WILL BE MERCIFUL UNTO US. BUT WE HAVE TO RECEIVE MERCY. WE RECEIVE CHRIST INTO OUR
HEARTS BY FAITH AND THEREBY, WE’RE BORN AGAIN. CHILDREN HAVE NO PROBLEM
RECEIVING. WE’RE THE ONES WITH ALL
THE QUESTIONS. “WELL, HOW COULD IT
BE THAT SIMPLE? HOW CAN YOU LIVE A LIFE OF SIN
AND JUST PRAY A PRAYER AND IT ALL BE GONE? HOW CAN THAT HAPPEN?”
MY FATHER WAS THE MOST WRETCHED, MISERABLE HUMAN BEING. HE WAS NOT ONLY ABUSIVE,
BUT HE WAS JUST MEAN, JUST UGLY MEAN. AND WHEN HE WAS 83 I LED HIM
TO THE LORD. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AND I CAN TELL YOU
AFTER EVERYTHING HE DID, NOT ONLY TO ME, BUT TO MANY,
MANY, MANY PEOPLE, THE AWFUL WAY HE TREATED MY MOTHER, HE RUINED
MY BROTHER’S LIFE, I BELIEVE, THAT THE MOMENT HE RECEIVED
CHRIST, AS HIS SAVIOR, THAT EVERY SIN WAS COMPLETELY
WIPED AWAY AND FORGIVEN. AND I BELIEVE HE’S IN HEAVEN
TODAY HEARING THIS MESSAGE. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: AMEN? LET’S HAVE OUR KIDS. OKAY. YOU GOT MY MONEY? [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: NOW, KIDS ARE
NOT SUSPICIOUS. THEY JUST ARE–THEY’RE GOOD
RECEIVERS. BOY, DON’T I HAVE A BUNCH
OF GOOD-LOOKING KIDS UP HERE, TODAY? [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: OKAY, HOW MANY
OF YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT MONEY IS? RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU KNOW
WHAT MONEY IS? OK, HOW MANY OF YOU LIKE MONEY? [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: I GOT SOME MONEY HERE. WHAT IF I GIVE YOU MONEY,
WOULD YOU LIKE THAT? NO, YOU DON’T WANT ANY? WELL, YOU MUST BE ONE OF THOSE
PEOPLE OUT THERE. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THANK YOU, HMM… CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: SEE, YOU SAID YOU
DIDN’T WANT IT, BUT YOU DID. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THANK YOU. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THE ONLY THING I’M
HEARING UP HERE FROM EACH ONE IS, “THANK YOU.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: GOD WANTS TO HEAR
A LOT MORE OF THAT. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: HEY, HOW ABOUT
A SMILE, HANDSOME? [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: SOMEBODY’S ABOUT
TO GIVE YOU MONEY, THAT’S A TIME TO SMILE. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THANK YOU. I LIKE YOUR DRESS. NOW, YOU CAN BUY SOMETHING
PRETTY TO GO WITH IT. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THANK YOU. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: THANK YOU. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: OKAY, BUT IT’S
NOT OVER. NOW, I GOT $5 BILLS HERE. AUDIENCE: WHOO… JOYCE: AHA…[LAUGHING]
HOW ‘BOUT THAT? CHILD: THANK YOU. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: THAT’S THE WAY IT’S
SUPPOSED TO WORK. WHEN GOD GIVES US SOMETHING,
WE RECEIVE IT, SAY, “THANK YOU,” AND WE GET HAPPY. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: YOU’RE WELCOME. WHOO! CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: NOW, YOU CAN REALLY
BUY SOMETHING. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: HAVE YOU NOTICED
THAT NOT ONE PERSON IS REFUSING TO RECEIVE… [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: BECAUSE THEY DON’T
THINK THEY DESERVE IT? [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: WHERE IS YOUR SMILE? MAN, YOU’LL HAVE TO COME AND
LIVE WITH ME AWHILE. WE’LL TEACH YOU HOW TO SMILE. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: YOU’RE SO PRETTY. CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: WOW, YOU LOOK LIKE
YOU WORK OUT. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: OKAY, YOU CAN GO. HAVE A NICE DAY. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] CHILD: THANK YOU. JOYCE: YOU’RE WELCOME. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: NOW, NOT ONE OF
THEM SAID, “WHY DO YOU WANT TO GIVE
THIS TO ME?” NOT ONE OF THEM SAID,
“EH, I DON’T TRUST YOU.” [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: SEE, IF WE LEARN HOW
TO RECEIVE FROM GOD LIKE THAT… [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: HE SAYS, “I LOVE YOU,”
AND YOU SHOULD SAY, “THANK YOU.” “I FORGIVE YOUR SINS.”
“THANK YOU.” “WELL, I JUST CAN’T HARDLY
BELIEVE THAT YOU WOULD DO THAT, NOT AS BAD AS I’VE BEEN.”
NO, SHH… “THANK YOU.”
“I’M GONNA GIVE YOU FAVOR EVERYWHERE YOU GO,” WHOO! “THANK YOU.” [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: COME ON,
YOU GETTING IT? [AUDIENCE CHEERING] GINGER: JOYCE ANSWERS YOUR
QUESTION OF THE DAY SOON, SO STAY WITH US. GINGER: YOU KNOW,
FAITH SOMETIMES SOUNDS DIFFICULT OR EVEN ELUSIVE. BUT FAITH IS ALL ABOUT BELIEVING
WHAT GOD SAYS INSTEAD OF WHAT WE SEE OR FEEL. SO, AS JOYCE WAS SAYING, IT’S SO
IMPORTANT TO STIR YOURSELF UP, TURN YOUR FAITH LOOSE,
AND BELIEVE GOD FOR GREATER THINGS IN YOUR LIFE. IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU EVEN HAVE
TO START WITH A GREAT DEAL OF FAITH. THE BIBLE SAYS, A LITTLE BIT
OF FAITH GOES A LONG WAY. AND AS YOU SEE GOD WORK THAT
FAITH GROWS. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE
TO YOUR LIFE THAN YOU SEE. AND THAT’S WHY,

IS SO IMPORTANT. THIS IS THREE TEACHINGS ON CD

YOU EVERY DAY THAT YOU DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE WAS HAPPENING,
IT WILL HELP BUILD YOUR FAITH. AND THEN, THAT TIME THAT YOU

EVERYDAY LIFE,” DEVOTIONAL, YOU WILL SEE YOUR FAITH BUILD

BOOK, “YOUR BATTLES BELONG TO THE LORD.”
NOW AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD. [MUSIC] GINGER: BIG QUESTION FOR
YOU TODAY, ON THE QUESTION OF THE DAY. JOYCE: UH-OH [LAUGHING]. GINGER: THIS IS FROM DEANNA. AND DEANNA ASKS,
“WILL GOD ALWAYS FORGIVE US?” JOYCE: YES. HE WILL. GINGER: CLEAR AND SIMPLE,
YOU CAN TRUST IT. JOYCE: CLEAR AND SIMPLE,
I MEAN, THERE IS ONE UNPARDONABLE SIN IN THE BIBLE,
BUT ANYBODY WHO CARES ENOUGH ABOUT WHETHER THEIR SINS WILL
BE FORGIVEN OR NOT HASN’T COMMITTED THAT SIN. GINGER: SO, THE FACT THAT
SHE’S CONCERNED ABOUT GOD FORGIVING HER,
SAYS THAT HE WILL. JOYCE: AND I KNOW WHEN
I BRING UP THE UNPARDONABLE SIN THAT PROBABLY OPENS UP,
YOU KNOW, A WHOLE NOTHER BIG BUNCH OF QUESTIONS. BUT THAT SIN CAN ONLY BE
COMMITTED BY SOMEBODY WHO’S HAD A REALLY, REALLY CLOSE,
TIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, WHO’S KNOWN HIM AND WALKED
WITH HIM AND PURPOSELY TURNS HIS BACK. AND EVEN, IF SOMEBODY HAS DONE
THAT, IF THEY’RE NOW FEELING REPENTANT THEN THEY STILL
HAVEN’T COMMITTED THAT SIN. IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT’S EASY
TO DO. SO, IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT
PEOPLE NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT. THERE’S NO SIN THAT GOD WON’T
FORGIVE YOU FOR, AND THERE’S NO LIMIT ON HOW MANY TIMES YOU
CAN BE FORGIVEN. YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY, ALL OF OUR
SINS ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN. THEY WERE FORGIVEN ON THE
CROSS. WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS JUST
ADMIT OUR SIN AND THEN RECEIVE THAT FORGIVENESS. WE’RE NOT LIKE, TRYING TO TALK
GOD INTO FORGIVING US. GINGER: YEAH, SO, ANYONE
WHO HAS THAT QUESTION, IS CONCERNED, “I DON’T KNOW IF
GOD CAN FORGIVE ME OF THIS,” THE ANSWER’S THAT SIMPLE. YES, HE CAN. JOYCE: GOD FORGIVES YOU,
AND HE FORGETS IT. THAT’S AN AMAZING THING TO ME. AND LIKE, MY DAD WAS SO MEAN
AND HURT SO MANY PEOPLE, AND HE SEXUALLY ABUSED ME,
AND HE RUINED MY BROTHER’S LIFE, AND HE RUINED MY MOTHER’S LIFE,
AND WHEN HE WAS 83, HE LET ME PRAY FOR HIM
TO RECEIVE CHRIST. AND, AS MEAN AS HE WAS ALL THOSE
YEARS, I KNOW, THAT I KNOW THAT HE WAS INSTANTLY FORGIVEN
FOR ALL THOSE SINS. AND YOU ALMOST, CAN LOOK
AT THINGS LIKE THAT SOMETIMES, AND SAY, “WELL, THAT’S NOT FAIR. YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN A FAIRLY
GOOD PERSON ALL MY LIFE.” BUT WE DON’T UNDERSTAND GOD. I MEAN, GOD IS GRACIOUS,
AND HE’S MERCIFUL, AND HE’S FAITHFUL. AND I MEAN, HE’S JUST GOOD. HE’S GONNA BE GOOD TO PEOPLE
THAT DON’T DESERVE IT. GINGER: YEAH, WELL, I LIKE
THAT ANSWER. THAT’S A GOOD ANSWER. JOYCE: GOOD. [MUSIC] ANNOUNCER: WE HOPE YOU
ENJOYED TODAY’S PROGRAM. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT
