Call It In | Joel Osteen


>>JOEL OSTEEN: WELL, GOD BLESS
YOU. IT’S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
HOMES AND IF YOU’RE EVER IN OUR AREA PLEASE STOP BY AND BE
A PART OF ONE OF OUR SERVICES I PROMISE YOU,
WE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING FUNNY AND I HEARD ABOUT THIS
COLLEGE PROFESSOR. HE WAS GOING TO PROVE TO HIS
STUDENTS THAT THERE IS NO GOD. HE SAID, “GOD, IF YOU’RE REAL
THEN KNOCK ME OFF THIS PLATFORM AND I’LL GIVE YOU
15 MINUTES TO DO IT.” WITH EVERY MINUTE THAT WENT
BY HE TAUNTED GOD. “GOD, I’M STILL HERE.
I’M STILL WAITING.” THE LAST MINUTE 300 POUND
FOOTBALL PLAYER WALKING DOWN THE HALLWAY OVERHEARD HIM.
HE TOOK OFF RUNNING FULL SPEED TOWARD HIM PUT HIS SHOULDER
DOWN SEND HIM FLYING OFF THE PLATFORM.
THE PROFESSOR WOKE UP IN A DAZE, SAID WHAT IN THE WORLD YOU DO
THAT FOR? THE FOOTBALL PLAYER REPLIED,
“GOD SAID HE WAS BUSY SO HE SENT ME.”
SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT. THIS IS MY BIBLE.
I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM. I HAVE WHAT 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 RECEPTIVE, I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME,
IN JESUS’S NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY ABOUT CALL IT IN.
IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST HOPE SOMETHING HAPPENS, JUST BELIEVE
A DREAM WILL COME TO PASS, JUST THINK POSITIVE AND THAT
SITUATION WILL TURN AROUND. YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP
AND CALL IT IN. WORDS GIVE LIFE TO OUR FAITH.
WHEN YOU’RE SICK YOU NEED TO CALL IN HEALING.
FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE RESTORING HEALTH BACK UNTO ME.
THANK YOU THAT BY YOUR STRIPES I AM HEALED.
THAT’S NOT JUST QUOTING SCRIPTURE, THAT’S CALLING
IN HEALTH, CALLING IN WHOLENESS. IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING IN YOUR
FINANCES, YOU NEED TO CALL IN ABUNDANCE.
I AM BLESSED, I AM PROSPEROUS. FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE
SUPPLYING ALL OF MY NEEDS. THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE A MORE
THAN ENOUGH GOD. YOU JUST CALLED IN PROMOTION,
CALLED IN OPPORTUNITY. MAYBE YOU’RE SINGLE AND WANTING
TO MEET SOMEONE. IT’S FINE TO PRAY ABOUT IT,
IT’S FINE TO BELIEVE. WHY DON’T YOU CALL IN THAT
SPOUSE? “FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE
SOMEONE AWESOME COMING MY WAY. YOU SAID NO GOOD THING WOULD YOU
WITHHOLD BECAUSE I WALK UPRIGHTLY.”
YOU HAVE TO CALL IN DIVINE CONNECTIONS.
YOU CAN BE SPECIFIC. I CALL IN SOMEONE LOVING,
SOMEONE KIND, GODLY, GOOD LOOKING, WELL-OFF, FUN.
AS LONG AS YOU CAN BACK IT UP WITH SCRIPTURE, YOU CAN CALL
IT IN. “WELL, JOEL, I CAN’T JUST SAY
THINGS AND IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN.”
IT’S ALREADY HAPPENING. YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE TODAY
IN PART BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU’VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT YOURSELF
BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU’VE BEEN CALLING IN.
“WELL, I’LL NEVER GET OUT OF DEBT, MY BUSINESS IS
SO SLOW.” YOU JUST CALLED IN LACK, CALLED
IN STRUGGLE. “I’LL NEVER MEET THE RIGHT
PERSON. I HAVEN’T HAD A DATE IN YEARS.”
YOU JUST CALLED IN LONELINESS. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU’RE
CALLING IN. THE SCRIPTURE SAYS WE WILL EAT
THE FRUIT OF OUR WORDS. WHAT WE’RE CONSTANTLY TALKING
ABOUT WE’RE INVITING INTO OUR LIFE.
DON’T INVITE DEFEAT. DON’T INVITE LACK.
IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING WITH AN ADDICTION DON’T SAY
ANOTHER TIME, “I’LL NEVER BREAK THIS BAD HABIT.
I’VE HAD IT SO LONG.” YOU NEED TO START CALLING
IN FREEDOM. ALL THROUGH THE DAY: I AM FREE,
I AM CLEAN, I AM WHOLE, NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME WILL
PROSPER. YOU CAN’T CALL IN DEFEAT
AND HAVE VICTORY. YOU CAN’T CALL IN LACK AND HAVE
ABUNDANCE START CALLING IN WHAT YOU WANT AND NOT WHAT YOU HAVE.
THE SCRIPTURE SAYS LET THE WEAK SAY I AM STRONG.
IT DOESN’T SAY, LET THE WEAK SAY I AM WEAK.
WHY? THAT’S CALLING IN MORE WEAKNESS.
YOU HAVE TO CALL IN STRENGTH, CALL IN VITALITY, CALL
IN PASSION. DON’T GO AROUND SAYING I AM
SO TIRED, I NEVER HAVE ANY ENERGY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S
WRONG WITH ME. ALL THAT’S DOING IS MAKING
IT WORSE. YOU’RE CALLING IN MORE OF WHAT
YOU DON’T WANT. TURN IT AROUND: I AM STRONG,
I AM FULL OF ENERGY, I WILL RUN AND NOT BE WEARY.
I WILL WALK AND NOT FAINT. DON’T SAY WHAT YOU FEEL, SAY
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU. “WELL, I LOOK SO OLD.
I’M GETTING SO WRINKLED, SO OUT OF SHAPE.
IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE.” THAT’S CALLING IN MORE OLDNESS,
MORE WRINKLES, MORE ACHES, MORE PAINS.
THAT’S GOING TO AGE YOU BEFORE YOUR TIME.
EVERY DAY YOU NEED TO SAY, “I AM YOUNG, I AM ENERGETIC, I AM
SHARP, MY YOUTH IS BEING RENEWED LIKE THE EAGLE’S.”
THAT’S WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU. YOU’VE PROBABLY SEEN THE NEW
FACE APP ON SOCIAL MEDIA. IT AGES YOU, SHOWS YOU WHAT YOU
COULD LOOK LIKE IN 40 YEARS. SOMEBODY SENT ME A PICTURE OF ME
40 YEARS OLDER–IT’S FUNNY I LOOK JUST LIKE MY BROTHER,
PAUL, NOW. [LAUGHING]
I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I’M, CALLING IN YOUTH.
I’M CALLING IN HAIR, GOOD LOOKS, GOOD MEMORY, PLENTY OF ENERGY,
STRONG MUSCLES. I WAS AT A PASTOR’S EVENT
AND THERE WAS A GENTLEMAN THAT HAD BEEN IN THE MINISTRY OVER
60 YEARS. WE ASKED HIM TO STAND SO WE CAN
HONOR HIM. HE POPPED UP OUT OF THAT CHAIR
LIKE HE WAS A TEENAGER, WE ASK HOW OLD IS, HE SAID 91.
HE LOOKED LIKE HE COULD BE 65– BARELY HAD ANY WRINKLES, BIG
SMILE, JOYFUL PERSONALITY, FULL HEAD OF HAIR, HE HAD TO BUY IT
BUT IT LOOK GOOD ON HIM. WHAT ARE YOU CALLING IN?
DON’T GO AROUND TALKING ABOUT HOW IT’S NOT GOING TO WORK
OUT, HOW BAD THE MEDICAL REPORT IS, HOW YOUR CHILDREN AREN’T
MAKING GOOD DECISIONS. A LADY CAME DOWN FOR PRAYER.
SHE TOLD ME HOW HER TEENAGE SON IS OFF COURSE, HOW HE WOULDN’T
LISTEN TO HER, HOW HE WAS RUNNING WITH THE WRONG CROWD
AND ON AND ON. SHE CAME BACK THE NEXT WEEK
AND WENT INTO MORE DETAIL. I WOULD SEE HER
OUT IN THE LOBBIES–SAME THING. ALWAYS HOW BAD HE WAS DOING, HOW
MUCH TROUBLE HE WAS IN, HOW HE WASN’T DOING GOOD IN SCHOOL.
IT’S ONE THING TO TELL PEOPLE SO THEY CAN AGREE WITH YOU
IN PRAYER, BUT YOU CAN’T KEEP TALKING ABOUT THE PROBLEM.
SHE DIDN’T REALIZE SHE WAS CALLING IN DEFEAT, SHE WAS
CALLING IN MORE TROUBLE. WE WERE PRAYING FOR VICTORY,
BUT SHE WAS CANCELING OUT OUR PRAYERS.
SHE WAS EATING THE FRUIT OF HER WORDS.
AND ONE DAY I TOLD HER WHAT I’M TELLING YOU INSTEAD OF TALKING
ABOUT HOW BAD HE IS START SAYING FATHER, THANK YOU THAT AS FOR ME
AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.
THANK YOU THAT MY SON WILL FULFILL HIS DESTINY, THAT HE
MAKES DECISIONS THAT HONORS YOU, THAT HE HAS GREAT FRIENDS, THAT
HE’S KIND, RESPECTFUL, AND FOCUSED.
SHE STARTED DOING THAT AND IT DIDN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, BUT DO
YOU KNOW TODAY THAT YOUNG MAN IS EXACTLY WHAT SHE SAID?
HE IS KIND, RESPECTFUL. HE HAS GREAT FRIENDS.
HE VOLUNTEERS FOR US. WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE?
WHEN SHE CHANGED WHAT SHE WAS CALLING HIM.
YOU CAN PRAY FOR VICTORY ALL DAY LONG, BUT IF YOU’RE CALLING
IN DEFEAT IT’S GOING TO CANCEL OUT THOSE PRAYERS.
“WELL, JOEL MY COWORKERS DON’T LIKE ME.
I DON’T REALLY HAVE A GOOD PERSONALITY, NOBODY WANTS TO BE
AROUND ME.” ZIP THAT UP.
YOU’VE BEEN MADE IN THE IMAGE OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
HE CALLS YOU A MASTERPIECE. YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER THAT
NOBODY ELSE HAS BUT EVERY TIME YOU DISCOUNT YOURSELF, YOU’RE
MAKING YOURSELF UNATTRACTIVE, UNFRIENDLY; YOU’RE CALLING
IN INSECURITY. WHY DON’T YOU START SAYING
UNDER YOUR BREATH, “I AM WELL LIKED.
PEOPLE LOVE TO BE AROUND ME. I HAVE A GREAT PERSONALITY.
GOD’S FAVOR IS ON MY LIFE.” WHEN YOU SPEAK THAT OUT IT NOT
ONLY ALLOWS IT TO COME TO PASS, BUT IT GETS DOWN ON THE INSIDE.
YOU CANNOT CALL IN NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF AND FEEL
GOOD ABOUT WHO YOU ARE. WHEN I TOOK OVER FOR MY FATHER,
ALL OF A SUDDEN I WAS ON TELEVISION.
MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS, “NOBODY’S GOING TO LISTEN TO ME.
NOBODY’S GOING TO WATCH.” I WAS VERY INSECURE BUT ONE
THING I’VE LEARNED IS TO NOT SPEAK OUT THE NEGATIVE.
YOU MAY THINK IT BUT DON’T GIVE IT LIFE BY SAYING IT.
DON’T CALL IT IN. AND INSTEAD OF VERBALIZING THAT
I WOULD SAY FATHER, THANK YOU THAT WHEN PEOPLE TURN ME
ON THE TELEVISION THEY CAN’T TURN ME OFF.
THANK YOU THAT PEOPLE LIKE ME, THAT PEOPLE ARE DRAWN TO ME,
THAT PEOPLE ARE BEING HELPED BY ME.
I’VE SAID THAT EVERY MORNING FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS.
NOW PRACTICALLY EVERY TIME I’M OUT SOMEONE WILL STOP ME
AND SAY, “JOEL, I DON’T LIKE TV MINISTERS, I’M NOT A RELIGIOUS
PERSON, BUT I WAS FLIPPING THROUGH THE CHANNELS AND WHEN I
TURNED YOU ON I COULDN’T TURN YOU OFF.”
I THINK TO MYSELF I CALLED YOU IN.
YOU HAVE TO CALL IN FAVOR, CALL IN INFLUENCE, CALLING YOUR
DESTINY. THE SCRIPTURE SAYS WITH OUR
WORDS WE CAN BLESS OUR FUTURE OR WE CAN CURSE OUR FUTURE.
I WOULDN’T BE UP HERE IF I HAD CURSED MY FUTURE.
IF I HAD KEPT SAYING WHAT I THOUGHT: “NOBODY’S GOING
TO LIKE ME.” I HAD TO CALL IN WHAT GOD SAYS
ABOUT US, THAT WE ARE SURROUNDED WITH HIS FAVOR, THAT WHATEVER WE
TOUCH WILL PROSPER AND SUCCEED. DON’T GO AROUND SAYING, “WELL,
I’LL NEVER LIVE IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD.
I’LL NEVER HAVE A NICE HOUSE.” CALL IN A NICE HOUSE: “FATHER,
THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE A HOUSE ALREADY PICKED OUT FOR ME. YOU SAID BECAUSE I DELIGHT
MYSELF IN YOU YOU WILL GIVE ME THE DESIRES OF MY HEART.
SO THANK YOU.” THAT NEW HOUSE IS ON THE WAY.
THAT’S NOT JUST WISHFUL THINKING, THAT’S RELEASING YOUR
FAITH. IN YOUR BUSINESS YOU NEED
TO CALL IN CUSTOMERS, CALL IN THE CLIENTS YOU NEED, CALL
IN OPPORTUNITIES. YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU
ASK NOT. YOU COULD SAY YOU HAVE NOT
BECAUSE YOU CALL NOT. ARE THERE THINGS YOU’RE NOT
RECEIVING BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT CALLING?
AND I’M NOT SAYING TO GET OUT OF BALANCE AND CALL IN 14
HOUSES AND 7 WIVES, BUT WHAT DO YOU NEED?
ONE IS HARD ENOUGH– I MEAN, ONE IS GOOD ENOUGH.
WHAT DO YOU NEED? I’M NOT GONNA LOOK AT VICTORIA
NOW EITHER. [LAUGHING]
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO ACCOMPLISH THE DREAM GOD PUT IN YOUR HEART?
IT SHOULD BE BIGGER THAN YOU CAN DO ON YOUR OWN.
IF YOU CAN DO IT WITHOUT CALLING ANYTHING IN THEN IT’S NOT BIG
ENOUGH. MAYBE YOU NEED TO CALL IN THAT
SCHOLARSHIP, THAT SCHOOL YOU WANT TO ATTEND.
CALL IN THAT PROMOTION THAT YOU’VE WORKED FOR.
CALL IN THAT BUSINESS YOU’RE DREAMING ABOUT.
CALL IN THAT ORPHANAGE THAT YOU WANT TO BUILD.
WE HAD TO CALL IN THE COMPAQ CENTER.
WHEN THIS BUILDING CAME ACROSS OUR PATH IT SEEMED
IMPOSSIBLE. I THOUGHT THERE’S NO WAY WE CAN
GET IT. IT WILL BE TOO EXPENSIVE.
IT’S TOO PROMINENT. THE CITY WILL NEVER LET A CHURCH
HAVE IT. BUT SOMETIMES GOD WILL BRING
THINGS ACROSS YOUR PATH THAT ARE FAR BEYOND ANYTHING YOU’VE
IMAGINED. THE KEY IS TO NOT CANCEL
OUT THE GREATNESS OF GOD’S FAVOR WITH A LIMITED VISION
AND NEGATIVE WORDS. “WELL, I DON’T SEE HOW IT CAN
HAPPEN, WE DON’T HAVE THE FINANCES.
I DON’T KNOW THE RIGHT PEOPLE, I DON’T HAVE THE TRAINING.”
YOU MAY NOT BUT GOD DOES. NOW DO YOUR PART AND CALL IT IN.
FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE TAKING ME WHERE I COULDN’T GO
ON MY OWN. THANK YOU THAT YOU’RE OPENING
DOORS THAT NO MAN CAN SHUT, THAT GOOD BREAKS ARE CHASING ME DOWN,
THAT THE RIGHT PEOPLE ARE HEADED MY WAY.
WE CALLED IN FAVOR, GOD SENT US DIVINE CONNECTIONS.
PEOPLE THAT USE THEIR INFLUENCE TO HELP US GET THE BUILDING.
WHAT YOU NEED MAY BE BIG BUT WE SERVE A BIG GOD.
HE WOULDN’T HAVE PUT THE DREAM IN YOUR HEART IF HE COULDN’T
BRING IT TO PASS. MAYBE HE’S JUST WAITING FOR YOU
TO CALL IT IN TO USE YOUR WORDS TO RELEASE YOUR FAITH.
WHEN DAVID FACED GOLIATH IN THE NATURAL HE DIDN’T HAVE
A CHANCE. DAVID WAS A TEENAGER SMALL
IN STATURE. HE HAD NO FORMAL TRAINING, NO
MILITARY EXPERIENCE. ALL HE KNEW HOW TO DO WAS
TO TAKE CARE OF SHEEP. GOLIATH WAS THE PHILISTINES’
MOST SKILLED WARRIOR. HE WAS ALMOST TWICE DAVID’S
SIZE. HE HAD A FULL SET OF ARMOR.
HIS SWORD WEIGHED 20 POUNDS, ALMOST EIGHT TIMES THE NORMAL
AMOUNT. DAVID HAD NO ARMOR.
ALL HE HAD WAS A SLINGSHOT AND THE FAVOR OF GOD, BUT HERE’S
THE KEY: HAVING FAVOR ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH, YOU HAVE TO ACTIVATE
IT, YOU HAVE TO CALL IT IN. WHEN DAVID HEARD GOLIATH
TAUNTING THE ISRAELITES SOMETHING ROSE UP IN HIM.
HE SAID, “WHO IS THIS UNCIRCUMCISED PHILISTINE THAT HE
WOULD DEFY THE ARMIES OF THE LIVING GOD?”
RIGHT THERE GOD PUT THE DREAM IN DAVID TO DEFEAT GOLIATH.
HE WENT AND TOLD KING SAUL. YOU WOULD THINK THAT SAUL
WOULD’VE BEEN EXCITED. HE FINALLY HAD SOMEONE TO STEP
UP BUT SAUL SAID IN 1 SAMUEL 17, “DAVID DON’T BE RIDICULOUS.
THERE’S NO WAY YOU CAN FIGHT HIM AND POSSIBLY WIN, YOU’RE JUST
A BOY. HE’S BEEN A MAN OF WAR SINCE
HIS YOUTH.” IT WAS HARD ENOUGH FOR DAVID
TO GET HIS COURAGE UP. NOW THE PEOPLE THAT SHOULD HAVE
BELIEVED IN HIM DID JUST THE OPPOSITE.
BUT SOMETIMES THE REASON PEOPLE ARE NOT FOR YOU, THE REASON THEY
DON’T ENCOURAGE YOU, IS BECAUSE GOD DIDN’T PUT THE DREAM
IN THEM, HE PUT THE DREAM IN YOU.
THEY CAN’T HEAR WHAT YOU HEAR. THEY DON’T FEEL WHAT YOU FEEL.
THEY MAY LOVE YOU, THEY THINK THEY’RE DOING YOU A FAVOR,
TRYING TO PROTECT YOU, BUT WHEN GOD HAS SPOKEN SOMETHING TO YOU
THERE IS AN ANOINTING OF FAVOR, A BLESSING, AN EMPOWERMENT THAT WILL CAUSE IT TO COME TO PASS.
DAVID LOOKED GOLIATH IN THE EYES AND SAID THIS DAY I WILL DEFEAT
YOU AND FEED YOUR HEAD TO THE BIRDS OF THE AIR.
WHAT WAS HE DOING? CALLING IN VICTORY, CALLING IN FAVOR.
HE REACHED DOWN AND PICKED UP A SMOOTH STONE.
WHEN HE SLUNG IT I CAN IMAGINE IT HIT GOLIATH BETWEEN THE EYES
KNOCKED HIM UNCONSCIOUS. DAVID WENT OVER TOOK GOLIATH’S
OWN SWORD AND FINISHED HIM OFF. WHEN YOU FACE CHALLENGES IT’S
SO IMPORTANT WHAT YOU’RE SAYING. DAVID COULD’VE LOOKED AT GOLIATH
AND SAID KING SAUL WAS RIGHT. WHAT WAS I THINKING?
I’LL NEVER DEFEAT HIM. I’M SURE THOSE THOUGHTS CAME
TO HIS MIND BUT HE UNDERSTOOD THIS PRINCIPLE THAT WHAT HE
SPOKE OUT HE WAS CALLING IN. HE KNEW IF HE SPOKE THE NEGATIVE
HE WAS CALLING IN DEFEAT, LIMITATIONS, WEAKNESSES, THAT’S
WHY HE STAYED ON THE OFFENSIVE, “I WILL DEFEAT YOU.”
WHEN YOU FACE AN ILLNESS, YOU NEED TO DECLARE: “I WILL DEFEAT
THIS CANCER. I WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE.”
YOU HAVE TO CALL IN THAT HEALING.
IT DOESN’T SAY LET THE WEAK THINK I’M STRONG.
“WELL, JOEL, I BELIEVE I’M HEALED.”
THAT’S IMPORTANT BUT BELIEVING ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH, TAKE
THE NEXT STEP AND DECLARE I AM HEALED, I AM WHOLE.
PERHAPS YOU’RE IN A SITUATION LIKE DAVID WHERE THE ODDS ARE
ALL AGAINST YOU. IT’S EASY TO GET DISCOURAGED,
TALK ABOUT HOW BAD IT IS, NO MORE THAN EVER YOU NEED TO START
CALLING IN VICTORY, CALLING IN BREAKTHROUGHS, CALLING
IN SUDDENLIES. FATHER, YOU SAID WHEN DARKNESS
OVERTAKES THE RIGHTEOUS LIGHT WILL COME BURSTING IN.
I KNOW ONE TOUCH OF YOUR FAVOR CAN SUDDENLY TURN THIS
AROUND SO I CALL MY BUSINESS BLESSED.
I CALL MYSELF FREE FROM THIS ADDICTION.
I CALL MY CHILDREN SERVING GOD. I CALL IN ABUNDANCE, I CALL
IN HEALING, I CALL IN BREAKTHROUGHS.
DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT NOT HAVING IT, START CALLING IT IN.
DECLARE WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU. “WELL, JOEL, WHAT IF I CALL IT
AND IT DOESN’T COME?” THEN KEEP CALLING. WHEN MY MOTHER WAS DIAGNOSED
WITH TERMINAL CANCER, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I HEARD HER
SAY, “I AM HEALED, I AM FREE FROM THIS CANCER.”
THOUSANDS OF TIMES. THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS WHEN
SHE SAID IT IT SEEMED JUST THE OPPOSITE.
YOU WOULD LOOK AT HER AND THINK YOU’RE NOT HEALED.
YOU DON’T LOOK WELL. BUT WHEN YOU KEEP CALLING
IN HEALING, KEEP CALLING IN FREEDOM, KEEP CALLING
IN ABUNDANCE, WHAT YOUR CALLING IS ON THE WAY.
MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED YET BUT THERE WILL BE A TIME
WHERE YOU SEE WHAT YOU’VE BEEN SAYING.
NOW ALMOST 40 YEARS LATER, MY MOM IS STILL HEALTHY AND WHOLE.
BUT DON’T BE DISCOURAGED BY WHAT’S NOT CHANGING LET THAT
CHALLENGE YOU TO CALL IT IN EVEN STRONGER.
GOD IS FAITHFUL TO WHAT HE PROMISED AND WHEN YOU’RE CALLING
IN WHAT HE HAS SPOKEN OVER YOU YOU CAN REST ASSURED IT IS
ON THE WAY. THIS IS WHAT I HAD TO DO WHEN MY
FATHER WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD AND I STEPPED UP TO PASTOR
THE CHURCH I WAS AFRAID, INTIMIDATED.
I HAD NEVER MINISTERED BEFORE. EVERY THOUGHT TOLD ME HOW IT
WASN’T GOING TO WORK OUT. HOW I DIDN’T HAVE THE TRAINING,
HOW NOBODY WAS GOING TO LISTEN. I WAS TEMPTED TO VERBALIZE MY
FEAR AND TALK ABOUT HOW I FELT UNQUALIFIED BUT I DID WHAT I’M
ASKING YOU TO DO. ALL THROUGH THE DAY I FELT
THE NEGATIVE BUT I SAID THE POSITIVE.
UNDER MY BREATH, I WAS CONSTANTLY SAYING I AM STRONG
IN THE LORD. I CAN DO ALL THINGS
THROUGH CHRIST. I AM EQUIPPED, I AM EMPOWERED,
I AM ANOINTED. AT THAT TIME, WHAT I WAS SAYING
NONE OF IT FELT LIKE IT WAS TRUE.
FOR MONTHS, EVEN THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS I WAS STILL
INSECURE, STILL AFRAID, NOT SURE IF I COULD DO IT BUT I KEPT CALLING IN COURAGE, CALLING
IN FAVOR, CALLING IN THE ANOINTING.
TODAY, 20 YEARS LATER, I AM WHAT I CALL MYSELF.
I’M ASKING YOU TO START CALLING IN WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.
IF YOU’RE INTIMIDATED LIKE I WAS THEN CALL IN COURAGE: I AM
STRONG, I AM WELL ABLE. DON’T GO THE NEXT 20 YEARS
CALLING IN THE NEGATIVE. PUT YOUR FAITH OUT THERE.
CALL IN GREATNESS, CALL IN NEW LEVELS, CALL IN YOUR DREAMS,
CALL IN YOUR GIFTS. YOU’VE HEARD THE LINE
FROM THE MOVIE, “IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME.”
GOD IS SAYING IF YOU’LL CALL IT IT WILL COME.
IF YOU’LL CALL YOURSELF BLESSED, BLESSINGS WILL COME.
IF YOU’LL CALL YOURSELF HEALED, HEALING WILL COME.
IF YOU’LL CALL YOUR CHILDREN FULFILLING THEIR DESTINIES,
THEIR DESTINY WILL COME. NUMBERS CHAPTER 13.
MOSES SENT 12 MEN TO SPY OUT THE PROMISED LAND.
AFTER 40 DAYS, TEN OF THEM CAME BACK AND TOLD MOSES HOW IT WAS AN AMAZING LAND.
MORE THAN THEY EVER IMAGINED. THE CLUSTERS OF GRAPES WERE
SO LARGE IT TOOK TWO PEOPLE TO CARRY THEM.
THEY HAD STRUGGLED ALL THOSE YEARS OUT IN THE DESERT, WHERE
IT WAS HOT AND DUSTY, LIMITED RESOURCES.
NOW THEY HAD FINALLY MADE IT NEXT DOOR TO THE LAND FLOWING
WITH MILK AND HONEY. IT WAS A LAND FLOWING WITH RESOURCES.
AND GOD HAD ALREADY PROMISED THAT HE WAS GOING TO GIVE THEM
THE LAND HE WAS GOING TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY, THEY JUST HAD TO GO
IN AND TAKE IT. BUT THESE TEN SPIES WENT
ON TO SAY, “MOSES, THE PEOPLE ARE HUGE, THEY ARE SO POWERFUL,
WE WE’LL NEVER DEFEAT THEM. WE FELT LIKE GRASSHOPPERS
COMPARED TO THEM.” THEY FELT WEAK, BUT INSTEAD
OF CALLING THEMSELVES STRONG, THEY CALLED THEMSELVES WEAK.
GOD SAID HE WOULD GIVE THEM THE VICTORY, BUT THEY CALL
THEMSELVES DEFEATED. GOD CAN CALL YOU ONE THING,
BUT IF YOU CALL YOURSELF SOMETHING DIFFERENT YOU CAN
OVERRIDE WHAT GOD SAYS. NOT BECAUSE WE’RE THAT POWERFUL
BUT GOD WORKS WHERE THERE’S FAITH.
GOD CALLS YOU BLESSED BUT IF YOU GO AROUND SAYING, “I’M NOT
BLESSED. I CAN’T GET AHEAD, I NEVER GET
ANY GOOD BREAKS,” WHAT YOU’RE CALLING IN WILL OVERRIDE WHAT
GOD PROMISED. GOD SAID YOU HAVE BEEN FEARFULLY
AND WONDERFULLY MADE. HE CALLS YOU CONFIDENT, SECURE, WELL-ABLE BUT IF YOU SAY, “I’M
NOT THAT TALENTED, I’M NOT AS SMART AS MY SISTER, I DON’T HAVE
A GOOD PERSONALITY,” WHAT YOU’RE CALLING IN WILL OVERRIDE WHAT
GOD HAS SPOKEN. AND IF YOU’RE GOING TO BECOME
WHO YOU WERE CREATED TO BE YOU HAVE TO GET IN AGREEMENT WITH GOD.
DON’T CANCEL OUT THE AMAZING PLAN HE HAS FOR YOUR LIFE
BY CALLING IN THE WRONG THINGS. LIKE WITH THE ISRAELITES THERE
ARE BLESSINGS, GOOD BREAKS, HEALING, FREEDOM, THAT GOD HAS
ALREADY PROMISED TO GIVE YOU. HE DIDN’T SAY IF YOU’RE STRONG
ENOUGH, IF YOU KNOW THE RIGHT PEOPLE, IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY
OPPOSITION. NONE OF THAT IS A CONDITION
FOR WHAT GOD PROMISED. HE’S GOING TO GIVE YOU THE LAND.
GIVE YOU THE SPOUSE. GIVE YOU THE HEALING.
GIVE YOU THAT HOUSE THAT YOU’RE BELIEVING FOR.
IT MAY SEEM IMPOSSIBLE, YOU CAN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN
BUT YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN. DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE THEY DID
AND START TALKING ABOUT HOW IT’S NOT GOING TO WORK OUT.
“I DON’T KNOW, I THINK I’VE REACHED MY LIMITS, GONE AS FAR
IN MY CAREER AS I CAN. I’LL NEVER GET WELL, NEVER BREAK
THE ADDICTION.” THAT’S CALLING IN DEFEAT, THAT’S
CALLING IN LIMITATIONS. IF IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN, YOU
HAVE TO CALL IN WHAT GOD PROMISED.
CALL IN VICTORY. CALL IN HEALING.
CALL IN ABUNDANCE. WHY DON’T YOU CALL IN THAT BABY YOU’VE BEEN BELIEVING FOR?
“FATHER, YOU SAID THE FRUIT OF MY WOMB IS BLESSED.
YOU SAID YOU WOULD MAKE THE BARREN WOMAN A HAPPY MOTHER
OF CHILDREN, SO THANK YOU THAT THE BABY THAT HAS MY NAME ON IT
IS COMING IN.” THAT’S HOW YOU MAKE IT INTO YOUR
PROMISED LAND. THESE SPIES SAID WE FELT
LIKE GRASSHOPPERS COMPARED TO THEM.
IMAGINE WHAT GOD MUST’VE THOUGHT.
HERE HE HAD DELIVERED THEM OUT OF SLAVERY, PARTED THE RED
SEA, BROUGHT WATER OUT OF A ROCK, CREATED THEM IN HIS OWN IMAGE, YET THEY WERE
SAYING WE’RE JUST GRASSHOPPERS. THEY DIDN’T REALIZE THEY WERE
CALLING IN FEAR, BEFORE LONG, THEY HAD THIS GRASSHOPPER
MENTALITY. NO WONDER THEY FELT WEAK
AND INTIMIDATED; THEY CALLED IT IN.
AND YOU MAY HAVE BIG OBSTACLES. DREAMS THAT SEEM IMPOSSIBLE.
YOU TOO COULD SHRINK BACK, LIVE INTIMIDATED.
NO, PUT YOUR SHOULDERS BACK, HOLD YOUR HEAD UP HIGH.
YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
DARE TO CALL IN WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT YOU.
FATHER, THANK YOU THAT I AM A VICTOR AND NOT A VICTIM.
THANK YOU THAT YOU ALWAYS CAUSE ME TO TRIUMPH.
THIS OBSTACLE MAY BE BIG BUT I KNOW YOU’RE IN CONTROL, YOU’RE FIGHTING MY BATTLES, AND THAT
I’M COMIN’ INTO MY PROMISED LAND.
THERE WERE TWO OTHER SPIES, JOSHUA AND CALEB, THEY HAD
A DIFFERENT REPORT. THEY SAID YES, MOSES, THE PEOPLE
ARE BIG BUT WE KNOW OUR GOD IS BIGGER.
WE ARE WELL ABLE TO TAKE THE LAND, LET US GO IN AT ONCE.
WHAT’S INTERESTING IS JOSHUA AND CALEB WERE THE ONLY ONES
OUT OF THOSE TWO MILLION PEOPLE THAT EVER MADE IT
INTO THE PROMISED LAND. ALL THE OTHERS DIED
OUT IN THE DESERT. IT’S NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT THEY
WERE THE ONLY ONES THAT CALLED IN VICTORY.
ARE THEIR PROMISED LANDS YOU’RE NOT ENTERING BECAUSE YOU’RE
CALLING IN DEFEAT INSTEAD OF VICTORY?
TALKING ABOUT HOW IT’S NOT GOING TO WORK OUT, WHAT YOU DON’T
HAVE. IT’S TIME TO CHANGE WHAT YOU’RE
CALLING IN. YOU’RE GOING TO EAT THE FRUIT
OF YOUR WORDS. I’M ASKING YOU TO BE A JOSHUA,
BE A CALEB, AND CALL IN WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU.
LET ME HELP YOU GET STARTED. RECEIVE THIS INTO YOUR SPIRIT: I
CALL IN HEALING FOR YOU, WHOLENESS, RESTORATION.
I CALL IN STRENGTH, ENERGY, VITALITY, YOUR YOUTH BEING
RENEWED. I CALL IN CONFIDENCE, COURAGE,
AND ABILITY. I CALL IN BLESSINGS, FAVOR,
PROMOTION, AND ABUNDANCE. I CALL IN THAT BUSINESS YOU’RE
BELIEVING FOR, THAT PROPERTY YOU NEED, THAT HOUSE YOU’RE DREAMING
ABOUT. I CALL IN A SPOUSE FOR YOU–
SOMEBODY AWESOME, A DIVINE CONNECTION.
I CALL IN THAT BABY YOU WERE TOLD YOU COULDN’T HAVE.
I CALL IN CHILDREN THAT ARE OFF COURSE.
I CALL IN A FRESH ANOINTING, FRESH VISION FOR YOUR LIFE,
AND I BELIEVE AND DECLARE LIKE JOSHUA AND CALEB, YOU’RE
ABOUT TO ENTER INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND.
GET READY, WHAT WE’RE CALLING IN IS ON THE WAY IN JESUS’S
NAME. IF YOU RECEIVE IT, CAN YOU SAY
AMEN? WELL, I’D LIKE TO GIVE YOU
AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE JESUS THE LORD OF YOUR LIFE.
WOULD YOU PRAY WITH ME? JUST SAY, “LORD JESUS, I REPENT
OF MY SINS, COME INTO MY HEART, I MAKE YOU MY LORD AND SAVIOR.”
FRIENDS, IF YOU PRAYED THAT SIMPLE PRAYER, WE BELIEVE YOU
GOT BORN AGAIN. GET IN A GOOD BIBLE-BASED CHURCH
AND KEEP GOD FIRST PLACE.>JOEL: THANKS FOR WATCHING
THE MESSAGE. I HOPE IT INSPIRED AND UPLIFTED YOU.
MAKE SURE YOU SUBSCRIBE TO STAY CONNECTED. THERE ARE
NEW MESSAGES EVERY WEEK. WE LOVE YOU AND WE’LL SEE
YOU NEXT TIME.

Thankyou for another day your daughter in Christ Heidi Renee Norman

  3. Thank you Lord for suggesting this video in my feed today, right when I need to hear it! πŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸΎ

  4. I'm going to be mother of twins (girls) in Jesus name. My husband will become what he is dreaming on. And my kids will be blessed

  5. Glory to God!!!! This message is just what I needed. Pastor my God continue to abundantly bless you, in Jesus matchless name.

  6. I call in health and healing for my family and myself. I call in abundance in wealth. I call in wisdom for all the challenges. I call in Courage And Strength Amen Grace Grace thank you lord Jesus

  7. I call in faith, abundance of finances, joy strength, a house, a divine connection with a spouse made just for me. I also call in favor and blessings for my children. I declare and receive all these things in Jesus name. AmenπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

  8. Have you ever noticed how this man Constantly blinks his eyes when hes talking..

    Go read what The Bible says about a man who blinks his eyes while hes talking…

    I'll tell you hes full of lies and deceit

  9. Joel was the one who drew me to Jesus first. He was so attractive spiritually. Then, I was drawn away when I listened to others who criticized pastors like Joel, who seemed to teach New Age information. So, I knew while I knew he served God in a way, he was not a β€œcomplete” or proper pastor. Now, after talking with God often and listening to the words he gives me when I have insights into the spirit, I realize now that Joel is person of high spirits who is truly bringing people to Jesus in his way. He may not be everything, but he offers hope and truth. Do not be blinded by others who cannot sense the truth and spirit in Joel’s words. We should not listen to Joel alone, of course. We should also listen to the words God gives us in our everyday lives. Learn to pick those words out of your thoughts, your own speech, and the speech and actions of others around you. It will take discernment, which grows with the desire and thought of it. I have found that Joel’s β€œfruits” are in fact very good. Hope is a spirit and a very good one.

  10. I’m calling in grounding and level headed reasoning skills. Stay positive, but don’t think God will do anything to add fuel for wishful thinking. God (in this facet) is a projection of yourself.

  11. Five/six years ago my left leg shrink and couldn't been straighten up till now; since then with this limp leg on a beautiful Sunday I started to watch your preaching on TV here in Taipei.
    Yes Taipei, Taiwan. I really enjoy it and seems like every Sunday I have all the answers on Sunday from God through you. Pretty amazing every doubt during the week comes an answer when I sit down and watch your preaching on Sunday. Thank you Lord and thank you Joel. I'm not the person I used to be.
