Your need to act like you don’t need anything is stopping the flow
of the miracle working power
god. In your life, if you
would say lord, I’m hungry. He and best not the righteousness shall be filled.
For the purpose of our ending tonight, let us not just compartmentalize need to money.
Because it is possible to have leads in other areas.
And sometimes money gets such a center stage as it relates to need because we have come through such struggle historically that it is almost a given that there is a financial need, and if you do have a need, my god shall supply But the reality is some of the things that that is slowing you down hindering you our needs in other area, the need for support, the need for validation, the need for love, the need for companionship, the need for connectivity, the need for staffing for your business, the need for building for your vision that that needs.
See, it’s a it wasn’t that they were just handing out dockets all the time.
If you’re hungry, the need might be bred. If you’re it might be water.
If you’re lonely, it might be help.
But whatever your need is, you have to fill that in because the lord told me to tell you he is the master of your need.
He is the master of your need. Your need has not shocked him.
It has not embarrassed him. It has not intimidated him.
In fact, he is in control.
Not only of what he supplies, but he is control of of your need.
Touching even say he’s a master of my knee.
Now let’s pray over the word.
Check the fight down in hurtching in our screens and cultures to understand more abundantly, lord, uh, what you would speak tonight.
I know what you downloaded into me.
Let it be released in this place in a coherent effective way that it that it gives illumination and light and understanding I feel is so that I’m about to feed a feeder.
I’m about to feed a feeder.
As I release what is in my spirit tonight, somebody’s gonna take it and do like the body does with food, they’re gonna convert it into so many nutritious elements that are gonna minister to them.
It’s gonna go in a sermon. It’s gonna come out a building.
It’s gonna go in a sermon. It’s gonna come out a husband.
It’s gonna go in a y’all are not ready for this.
It’s gonna go in a sermon that’s gonna a degree. It’s gonna go in a sermon.
It’s gonna come out property. It’s gonna go in the word that I speak to you right now your spirit is gonna take it just like your body does food, and it’s gonna convert it into the thing you need for what is about to happen next in your life.
If you can understand what I just said, praise him on credit.
Just You may be seated.
You may be seated.
I was having lunch with some close friends and people I’ve known for a number of years, and we were missing about years ago when we were, uh, in a little storefront back in Montgomery, West Virginia.
And, uh, Bishop Watkins was uh, coming down to minister and and, uh, and I needed he had so many members.
He brought 4 or 5 busloads about 20 cars down. I had about 30 members.
And, um, I ended up going to the high school, I think, there in Montgomery and running the auditorium at the high school to hold the crowd because my church, which would seat about a 120 people, wouldn’t hold the crowd.
Let’s talk to myself how that align with a conversation I had had with God.
I said, God, I am the same man and the same preacher with the same anointing that I had back then.
Why didn’t you give me American Airlines back then, I’m the same guy.
I was younger. I was stronger. I was hungry.
Why why do you take us through stages of development.
Why why do you let us exercise in the gymnasium of small beginnings and go from 30 to 60 to a 100 fold because sometimes we can get stuck at a stage and never evolve to the capacity that we need to evolve to receive what we need to receive.
And as I begin to talk to the lord about it, He said, you see, I supply lead.
It did amazing how you can come to church with somebody and you can really get blessed and the person you brought with you got nothing.
Have you ever rode home from church with somebody who nothing.
And you were really, really blessed, and they got in the car talking about who was cute and who was fine and who had gained weight.
And why did she wear those shoes with that dress and and you’re going crazy because you’re having a spiritual moment with the lord, and they seemingly got nothing.
How could there be so much supply? Of glory and they’d be oblivious to it.
Have you ever recognized that everybody doesn’t have the same capacity?
That they could be exposed to great things and not have an appetite for them.
That’s why you you don’t need you need to evolve from needing to do a census before you evolve.
That is to say, you don’t need everybody on your road to line up with you for you to receive what you need from god.
You don’t need a reaction from other people to validate what you need from god because there can come a release on such a level that if you don’t have the capacity to receive it, you might not even know it my god.
And our text Paul says, I I needed something, and you came and ministered unto my necessity when other churches didn’t.
Unto my necessity when other churches did. I thought this is the apostle Paul.
This is the impossible. This is the guy let me explain to you.
This is the guy who was the Saddam Hussein.
Of the early church And yet, god had such a plan for his life in spite of all the people he had slaughtered and murdered and destroyed.
And some said he even held the coat early on in his life while people stoned Stefan.
He has a history of being a Christian killer and yet god touches him and converts him for the master’s use how could god use somebody so filthy, so nasty, so hateful?
Uh, he basically called the terrorists.
And put him on a street called straight and delivered him and turned him around in filled him up with the Holy Spirit and sent him out to do amazing things, not because he was pure, not because he was holy, not because he was righteous, not because he had a wonderful past, not because he had not made horrendous mistakes, but but even in his past life, he was a big guy.
Who did big things in a big way. When he hated Christians, he wasn’t too fasting about it.
He said I’m going to kill him. As soon as I get down to Jerusalem, I’m going to destroy him.
And god chose boldness over righteousness.
Over purity because he he he had the ability to function on a certain level, and god used it Now you must understand that much of our new testament theology is a result of the apostle Paul.
There would be no understanding. Yes.
Jesus died and shed the blood shed his blood rose from the dead and burst the church but the church that Jesus’ birth was an organism with no organization.
There was no structure. There was no order. There were no apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, and evangelists.
Paul gives us all of that.
Paul begins to teach us and make us understand there’s therefore nominal condemnation to them that are in Christ’s Jesus who walk no longer after the flesh but after the spirit.
Paul begins to tell us that if this earthly house or tabernacle should be dissolved.
We have another building, eternal in the heavens, which is made of god.
Paul teaches us, it is it’s him that we live, and him that we move in him that we have our bent.
It is the apostle Paul that makes us understand. Therefore, having peace with god that we are reconciled with him.
We understand peace of god, peace with god, peace in god, all because of the apostle Paul.
Without the apostle Paul. We would not have a clear understanding that the door to the gentiles had been opened that they might be saved except free.
Paul preach with so much power that a man died while he was preaching.
Paul ran down the steps Raced him from the dead and kept right on peaching.
Paul was so awesome that they tried to kill him They couldn’t kill him.
They tried to beat him to death. They left him from dead.
He got up and shook himself and walked away. He was in shit wreck but he survived.
He was snake bent, but he shook it off. Oh, y’all don’t hear what I’m saying.
That that raised people from the dead with stewardship bricks and shook off snakes.
Why are you needing anything?
If you can raise people from the dead, you can pay your water bill.
Paul says, the truth of the matter is I am full lacking nothing.
But so that you might have credit to your account God created a need to test you.
To minister to that need. This is weird.
In other words, Paul’s saying, I needed something, but I didn’t. I was in trouble, but I wasn’t.
It’s kinda strange. This is the same guy that said, I have learned how to abase and abound both to be full and to be in want.
He said, he he said, even when you’re in trouble, you’re not in trouble.
Now I need to preach this to somebody who’s got some faith in them.
Even when you’re in trouble, You are not in trouble that god allows certain necessities to come either to create a backdrop for you to experience another dimension of his glory or for the people around you to have an opportunity to flow into another dimension of his grace.
Now back in the early days, Doctor Jasper, when I was preaching I would I would I would say something real hot and jazzy, uh, as a subject, I would do something like tell you to touch your neighbor, and say it’s a setup.
So touch your neighbor. And tell them it’s a setup.
They they they they they they don’t understand exactly what I’m saying yet because I’m not totally through unloading it yet.
And when I unload it, everybody’s not even gonna get it because some people are so shocked by the situation and they’ve been praying so hard about the situation.
They’ve been so focused on the circumstance they’ve been so distracted by what they’re going through that they don’t understand that everything you have been going through and every area you’ve been up under a type.
And every area that you have of necessity, your necessity is not a necessity.
It is in fact a opportunity for you to experience another dimension of god’s glory to the 10 people who understand it, touched him, even say, into setup.
It’s training wheels for your faith.
Is training wheels for your faith. It is a passage of entry into the next dimension.
It is a bar mitzvah for the son of god to have matured enough to carry the weight.
Why didn’t you give me this back then? I couldn’t handle it back then.
And why would he give me All of these thousands of seats when I didn’t need them.
Why would god give me something that I didn’t need.
So is the embryo of my success the supply or the need.
The only thing that makes an answer important is the question.
The profundity of the question is built.
The profundity of the answer is built on the profundity and the power of the question.
Why would I answer what you didn’t if god says the trigger point of my supply is your need, no wonder he hates a proud look.
Because a proud look will never admit me.
I know I knocked out about 10 rolls with that.
I killed about 10 people with that. Why why does god hate a proud look above everything else?
Above, I mean, murderers and lying in the backbite and everything.
God said, he hate not only does he hate pride. He hates a proud look.
You won’t even have to be bright.
He said, if you sit there and act like you’re important, I hate the fact that you adapt your lens cross acting like you’re important because proud people will never admit me.
Why would you have a savior if you won’t admit that you’re drowning.
Why would you have a miracle worker if you won’t admit that you’d have a need?
No wonder some people get anointed while some people are just tired if god supports to need if you don’t
need anything, you won’t
All and needy people clap your hands.
God says, let me see.
I got I got fish. I got stars. I got water. I got sunshine.
I got oak trees. I got pineapple trees.
I got all of this stuff that I wanna give, but I cannot give it until there’s a need.
So he forms the earth.
When he forms it, it creates a void void is capacity, and he responds to the capacity of what is formed.
He said, I create capacity in the ocean so I put fish in it.
I created capacity in the earth so I could sow seed into it.
I created capacity in the heavens so I could throw stars at it and birds at it.
Now you got something to fly in.
I couldn’t release the answer until I form Alright.
Alright. Alright. He form the earth and fills it.
He forms the ocean and fills it with fish.
He forms the air and fills it with birds. Everything got forms, he feels.
He formed the tabernacle and filled it with furniture.
He formed the Holleys of Holies and then filled it with glory.
In fact, he formed man and filled him with Harry, which came first, the man or the breath God had the breath, but until there was capacity, he couldn’t feel anything until you admit.
Oh, y’all don’t hear you. He responds to capacity.
Zick, you’ll go down and show me what you see in the valley.
I see dry bones in the valley. He said, Kenny’s bones live again lord. I’ll know it.
Speak to the bones that they might live. So I prophesied as I was commanded. Suddenly, there was noise.
There was a shaking. The bone came together bone to his bone, and they came together bone to his bone and seniors came upon them.
And then he said, prophesize to the wind because now I can feel what I form because god responds to capacity.
If you don’t want anything, you won’t get anything. If you don’t need anything, you won’t receive anything.
Do you not know that the real star of the story with the 2 fish and the five loams of bread is not the little boy and it’s not the lunch.
It was the hunger that moved the lord.
When the when they came to Jesus, and they said the people that are with you are hungry, he said, oh, good.
That’s capacity. Wherever I see capacity, I will release supplies.
Oh, I want all the people that’s got city to a hollow right now.
They said, lord, you got 5000 hungry people.
What do you have? He said, we don’t have nothing but the little boy’s lunch.
He said, I can work with anything if they’re hungry. I can work with anything if there’s a need.
I can work with anything if they’re thirsty. I can work with anything.
Just give me the little bit you got it.
I know it’s not much because the star is not what’s in the bag.
The star is an aching in the belly of the people. God responds to hunger.
The Bible said that when Jesus after John, the Baptist was beheaded, it said when Jesus saw the people and how they were hurt, He was moved with compassion and heal them.
What I’m trying to tell you, your need to act like you don’t need
anything is stopping a flow
of the miracle working power of
god in your life. If you
would shake your little cute dress down, and to, lord, I’m hungry.
He then hung us and passed us to righteous them shall be sealed.
No. No. No.
I don’t want the cute people to say nothing I want the people who came down here, said, god, if you don’t do something for me at Woman Valley, at least, I don’t know what I’m going to do.
For the next two minutes, I want you to let your daddy know you are hungry.
