700 Club Interactive: The Favor of God - May 13, 2013

Author and inspirational speaker Dr. Cindy Trimm shares how we can all find God's favor. Read Transcript


GORDON: WHEN OTHERS SEEM TO

HAVE ALL THE LUCK, HOW DO YOU

CATCH A BREAK.

FAVOR IS SOMETHING THAT GOD

PLACES UPON YOU, BUT ALSO

PLACES THAT FAVOR IN OTHER

PEOPLES' HEART TO ASSIST YOU,

HELP YOU AND GIVE OPPORTUNITY.

GORDON: FIND OUT HOW YOU

CAN RISE TO THE TOP ON TODAY'S

700 CLUB INTERACTIVE. ON 700

CLUB INTERACTIVE, WE USE

TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND, EXPLORE TOPICS THAT

MATTER TO YOU. WATCH WHAT GOD

IS DOING IN THE WORLD TODAY.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW. DAVID WAS

A HUMBLE HEERED, JOSEPH WAS A

SLAVE. MANY OF THEIR PEERS

WOULD SAY THEY'D AMOUNT TO

NOTHING, THEY ALL HAD SOMETHING

THAT SET THEM APART -- FAVOR

IT'S BEEN SAID -- RECENTLY

WE ASKED SEVERAL PEOPLE HOW YOU

GET FAVOR AND HERE'S WHAT THEY

HAD TO SAY.

WHEN I THINK OF THE WORD

FAVOR I THINK OF MAYBE SEEING

FRIENDLY REGARDS WITH SOMEONE,

ESPECIALLY SOMEONE THAT'S

SUPERIOR TO YOU.

WHEN I THINK OF FAVOR I

THINK OF GOD'S WILL.

SPECIAL TREATMENT AT TIMES.

GOD'S FAVOR -- IT MEANS THAT

CHRIST IS WITH YOU.

FAVOR CAN BE PROTECTION.

I FEEL LIKE IF HE CHOSE ME

TO DO SOMETHING, HE'S GOING TO

GIVE ME THAT FAVOR, WHATEVER I

NEED TO GET THE JOB DONE TO GET

IT RIGHT.

POSITIVE RESULTS COME FROM

FAVOR.

GOD HAVING A KIND ATTITUDE

OR JUST BEING FRIENDLY TOWARDS

ANYBODY.

YOU SEE FIVE DOLLARS ON THE

GROUND -- I DON'T THINK IT'S

THAT. I THINK IT'S TRUSTING ON

THE LORD AND WALKING WITH HIM.

I THINK HE WILL BLESS YOU.

I THINK THERE'S ALSO ANOTHER

SIDE TO IT. I THINK FAVOR CAN

MEAN GOD'S CHOSEN YOU FOR A

DIFFICULT ASSIGNMENT.

I BELIEVE FAVOR IS NEVER

FAVOR. WITH GOD'S FAVOR YOU'RE

ABLE TO OVERCOME THE

CHALLENGINGS THAT HAPPEN

BECAUSE YOU HAVE GOD'S FAVOR

UPON YOU.

I BELIEVE FAVOR CAN MEAN GET

READY BECAUSE SOMETHING REALLY

AMAZING'S GOING TO HAPPEN FOR

YOU BUT SOMETHING REALLY HARD

COULD GO WITH IT. SO I DON'T

THINK FAVOR MEANS YOU'RE IMMUNE

TO SUFFERING.

IF HE HAS CHOSEN YOU YOU'RE

HIS FAVORED ONE THAT'S GOING TO

GET ALL HIS HELP TO GET

WHATEVER IT IS TO GET DONE WHAT

YOU NEED TO GET DONE DURING THE

DAY.

GORDON: THOSE ARE ALL

WONDERFUL DEFINITIONS OF WHAT

FAVOR IS. DO YOU HAVE IT? DO

YOU HAVE FAVOR AND DO YOU HAVE

GOD'S BLESSING. AND IF YOU DO

HAVE IT, HOW DO YOU KEEP IT?

AND HOW DO YOU HAVE THE

ASSURANCE THAT YOU'RE WALKING

IN GOD'S FAVOR. LET'S TURN TO

THE SKIPTURES. HERE'S THE

PSALM, FOR YOU OH LORD, WILL

BLESS THE RIGHTEOUS. YOU WILL

SURROUND HIM AS WITH A SHIELD.

WHO GETS FAVOR WITH GOD. THOSE

WHO ARE RIGHTEOUS. YOU MIGHT

THINK I'M NOT RIGHTEOUS, I'VE

MADE PLENTY OF MISTAKE. WHEN

THOSE THOUGHTS COME TO YOU

THINK THIS -- YOU HAVE THE

RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST.

WHEN YOU'RE A BELIEVER IN

CHRIST THAT HE DIED FOR YOUR

SINS AND HE ROSE AGAIN, AND NOW

HE'S SEATED NEXT TO THE FATHER

EVER LIVING TO GIVE

INTERSESSION FOR YOU. THEN YOU

HAVE THE ASSURANCE THAT YOU

HAVE HIS FAVOR. AND IF THERE'S

ANY SIN IN YOUR LIFE, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS GO TO HIM AND

CONFESS IT AND HE WILL BE

FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE

YOU AND CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. SO LET'S GO

BACK TO THAT PSALM -- PSALM

FIVE -- FOR YOU OR LORD WILL

BLESS THE RIGHTEOUS WITH FAVOR.

THAT'S YOU. WITH FAVOR

BECAUSE YOU'RE ONE OF THE

RIGHTEOUS. IF YOU BELIEVE IN

JESUS, YOU'RE ONE OF THE

RIGHTEOUS YOU HAVE THAT. AND

THAT FAVOR WILL /SROUPBLD

SURROUND YOU LIKE A SHIELD. SO

FAVOR IS A PROTECTIVE THING SO

IT LITERALLY PROTECTS YOU SO

WHEN THE TRIALS AND

TRIBULATIONS OF LIFE COME YOUR

WAY, YOU'RE SURROUNDED WITH THE

FAVOR OF GOD AND THAT CAN'T GET

THROUGH. IT'S NOW A SHIELD FOR

YOU. HERE'S PSALM 119 AND THIS

IS ABOUT OBEDIENCE TO THE

TORAH. WHEN YOU FOLLOW GOD'S

LAW, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS TO

YOU. YOU ARE MY PORTION OH

LORD. UNDERSTAND THAT. YOU

ARE MY PORTION. WHEN YOU GET

THAT JESUS IS YOUR INHERITANCE.

WHEN YOU SEEK THE KINGDOM AND

HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, THEN ALL

THESE OTHER THINGS GET ADDED TO

YOU. YOU ARE MY PORTION, MY

LORD. I SAID I WOULD KEEP YOUR

WORDS. I ENTREATED YOUR FAVOR

WITH MY WHOLE HEART, BE

MERCIFUL TO ME ACCORDING TO

YOUR WORD. THAT'S THE

CONDITION -- WHEN YOU SEEK HIM

WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, WHEN

YOU PUT HIM FIRST IN YOUR LIFE,

THEN ALL THESE THINGS GETS

ADDED UNTO YOU. WHEN YOU DO

THAT -- BE MERCIFUL TO ME,

ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD. NOW,

HOW DO YOU KEEP IT? LET'S TURN

TO PROVERBS, CHAPTER THREE,

VERSUS THREE THROUGH FOUR. LET

NOT MERCY AND TRUTH FORSAKE

YOU. FIND FAVOR AND HIGH

ESTEEM IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND

MAN. LET NOT MERCY AND TRUTH

FORSAKE YOU. WHEN YOU START

GETTING JUDGMENTAL, LYING,

ENGAGE IN SLANDER, GOSSIP, WHEN

YOU TALK BAD ABOUT PEOPLE, WHEN

YOU WANT -- INSTEAD OF MERCY

YOU WANT JUDGMENT -- WHEN YOU

DO THOSE THINGS THEN YOU LOSE

FAVOR. YOU LOSE FAVOR NOT JUST

WITH GOD, BUT WITH THE PEOPLE

AROUND YOU. SO LET THAT VERSE

PIERCE INTO YOUR HEART THAT YOU

LOVE MERCY, YOU LOVE THE TRUTH

AND YOU WANT TO SPEAK GOOD OF

ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. YOU

WANT TO PRAY FOR THEM. YOU

WANT GOD TO VISIT THEM. WHEN

YOU DO THAT YOU FIND FAVOR WITH

GOD AND WITH OTHER PEOPLE.

HERE'S ANOTHER PROVERB FOR YOU.

IT'S CHAPTER 11. HE WHO

EARNESTLY SEEKS GOOD FINDS

FAVOR, BUT TROUBLE WILL COME TO

HIM WHO SEEKS EVIL. IF YOU SET

AS YOUR MAIN PURPOSE IN LIFE

YOU WANT GOOD, YOU WANT GOOD

THINGS TO HAPPEN TO OTHER

PEOPLE, YOU WANT TO SEEK

OCCUPANT THE OUT THE GOOD IN

THEM, YOU WANT TO DO GOOD FOR

THEM -- WHEN YOU DO THAT ON A

REGULAR BASIS, THEN YOU FIND

FAVOR. AND WHEN YOU FIND IT

YOU FIND ONE OF THE GREATEST

GIFTS GOD CAN GIVE. STILL

AHEAD, SENATOR SHOWS HOW GOD'S

FAVOR TOOK HER FROM REJECTION

TO WHOLENESS AFTER THIS.

IN 2008 MY HUSBAND PARTED

FOR HEAVEN. I WAS STILL

GRIEVING AND THEN I FOUND OUT I

HAVE CANCER. I PRAYED GOD, HOW

DO I DO THIS? CANCER TREATMENT

OF AMERICA WAS THE PLACE.

FOR BIBLE BELIEVING

CHRISTIANS WE'RE ABLE TO PRAY

WITH THEM IN A DIFFERENT WAY. .

AT CANCER TREATMENT CENTERS OF

AMERICA -- ON THE MOUNTAIN

SKIING, I FEEL STRONG AND

HEALTHY. ADVANCED MEDICINE AND

TECHNOLOGY. THE WARM EMBRACE

OF THE SPIRIT AND THE POWER OF

PRAYER. PLEASE GO TO CANCER

CENTER.COM. CARE THAT NEVER

QUITS.

THIS VIDEO IS GREAT. GO TO

CBN.COM ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE

FOR A FAST WAY TO SHARE YOUR

VIDEOS.

BEFORE THE BREAK WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT FAVOR AND JOINING

US NOW TO DISCUSS THIS SUNT

SUBJECT FURTHER, AUTHOR CINDY.

TODAY YOU'RE AN INTERNATIONAL

SPEAKER. HOW HAVE YOU SEEN THE

FAVOR OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE?

I'VE SEEN IT FROM AS FAR

BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER,

PARTICULARLY AS IT RELATES TO

JUST SENDING SPECIFIC PEOPLE IN

MY LIFE AT KEY MOMENTS,

TRANSITIONAL MOMENTS. AND HAS

THOSE PEOPLE NOT BEEN SENT, I

DON'T THINK THAT I WOULD BE

SITTING HERE TODAY TALKING TO

YOU. SO I THINK FAVOR EXTENDED

TOWARDS ME BY INDIVIDUALS WHO

SAW SOMETHING IN ME AND I

BELIEVE THAT FAVOR IS SOMETHING

THAT GOD NOT ONLY PLACES UPON

YOU, BUT FAVOR ALSO EXTEND

BEYOND YOU WHERE GOD PLACES

THAT FAVOR IN OTHER PEOPLES'

HEART TO ASSIST YOU, HELP YOU

AND GIVE OPPORTUNITIES.

GORDON:

YOU SEEM TO NOW LOOK BACK

AND RECOGNIZE ALL THOSE POINTS

WHERE GOD PLACED SOMEONE WHO

WAS STRATEGICALLY PUT THERE.

YOU ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND THEY ARE A CHILD OF

GOD. IS THAT WHAT ALLOWS YOU

TO SEE GOD'S HANDS AT WORK IN

YOUR LIFE?

ABSOLUTELY. THE TURNING

POINT IN MY LIFE WAS THE DAY

THAT I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD. ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR

GOD AND GODLY THINGS, BUT I WAS

NOT CONVERTED. THIS IS WHERE A

LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TODAY. THEY

MAY GROW UP IN CHURCH AND MAY

KNOW ABOUT GOD, BUT DON'T HAVE

A PERSONAL RERATION SHIP WITH

GOD. I BELIEVE A PART OF FAVOR

STARTS WITH ACTUALLY KNOWING

GOD AND ONCE YOU KNOW GOD IN A

PERSONAL WAY, YOU BEGIN TO KNOW

WHO GOD HIS COMMISSIONED YOU TO

BE OR CALLED YOU TO BE AND THAT

YOU ARE NOT NECESSARILY

RELEGATED TO AN ENVIRONMENT OR

CULTURAL. AND JUST BECAUSE YOU

WERE BORN IN A STABLE DOESN'T

MEAN THAT THAT'S YOUR DESTINY.

WE DON'T HAVE TO STAY WHERE WE

ARE. GOD CAN TAKE YOU FROM THE

GUTTER TO THE THRONE, CAN TAKE

YOU FROM THE BACK AND PUT YOU

IN THE FRONT. TRUSTING GOD AND

TRUSTING YOURSELF WITH GOD IS

ANOTHER THING. WE PREPARE

BY STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD. I

BELIEVE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE

UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF GOD.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

INSIDE OURSELVES THAT CAN ARISE

LIKE REPRESSED EMOTIONS OR EVEN

POSITIVE THINGS LIKE GIFTS AND

THOSE THINGS ARE WHAT GOD HAS

GIVEN YOU AND OFTEN TIMES WE

REACH OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES FOR

WHAT WE HAVE INSIDE OF

OURSELVES AND THIS IS WHAT GODS

HAS GIFTED US WITH. ALL OF US

ARE GIFTED AND ALL OF US HAVE A

PURPOSE AND DISCOVERING THAT

PURPOSE ACTUALLY STARTS WITH A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. THE

BIGGEST CONVERSATION WITH CAN

HAVE IS A CONVERSATION WITH GOD

BECAUSE HE BUILT EACH ONE OF US

AND HE WILL SPEAK TO US IN SUCH

A WAY THAT WE BEGIN TO

UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE GREATER

THAN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND THAT

HE CAN BRING US OUT OF OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES. I BELIEVE ALL

THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD

ANYWAY SO I'M ABLE TO TELL MY

STORY AND HELP OTHER PEOPLE.

DOCTOR CINDY, YOU KNOW THAT

THERE ARE A LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO

WALK IN A SPIRIT OF LOW SELF

ESTEEM, ALWAYS LOOKING AT

SOMEONE ELSE AND SAYING WELL,

/TKPWO*DZ GOD DID THAT FOR HER

OR HIM, BUT DON'T FEEL THEY

RECEIVED IT FOR THEMSELVES.

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME THAT?

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION

BECAUSE IT IS WHAT IT IS. IT

AIN'T WHAT IT AIN'T. BUT GOD

HAS A BETTER PLAN FOR OUR

LIVES. AND IN JESTING THE WORD

OF GOD AND BELIEVING HIS WORD

THAT IF HE HAS DONE IT FOR

OTHERS, HE CAN DO IT FOR US. A

TESTIMONY IS TOLD SO THAT

PEOPLE CAN HAVE HOPE TO BE ABLE

TO SAY OKAY, IF HE DID IT FOR

YOU, HE CAN DO IT FOR ME. AND

IT DOESN'T MAKE ONE PERSON

BETTER THAN THE OTHER, IT MAKES

THEM DIFFERENT, BUT IT MAKES US

RESPONSIBLE. WE ARE OUR

BROTHER'S KEEPER. THAT'S

NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, EACH

ONE OF US HAS SOMETHING TO

GIVE. MY MOTHER RAISED US IN A

SINGLE PARENT HOME. AS A

RESULT OF THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO

GIVE THE WORLD CHILDREN WHO

WERE STRONG AND SOMETIMES EVEN

AS SINGLE PARENTS WE WONDER,

AM I DOING A GOOD JOB? I DON'T

THINK IT'S THE SINGLE PARENTING

THAT'S THE ISSUE, IT'S THE

COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN YOU THESE CHILDREN AND

YOU CAN RAISE THEM AS HEALTHY

MEMBERS OF SOCIETY

AND THAT BECOME AN

ADVANTAGE, HE TURNS THAT

AROUND. WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHEN

YOU WRITE WE ALREADY HAVE THE

DAILY BRED IN OUR HANDS.

WE HAVE THE WORD OF GOD THAT

HE GIVES US ON A DAY-TO-DAY

BASIS. ONE THING I KNOW IS

THAT I SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT

THINGS. SO I LEARNED FROM

GROWING UP IN POVERTY THAT IF I

DON'T HAVE IT TODAY, I DON'T

NEED IT TODAY, BUT IF I NEED IT

TOMORROW, THAT'S WHEN GOD WILL

PROVIDE IT. SO I'VE LEARNED

NOT TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING.

JUST PRAY AND WITH PRAYER ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

GORDON: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US TODAY. YOU CAN GO

TO 700 CLUB INTERACTIVE.COM.

HE TOOK HOME THE GRAND PRIZE ON

THE REALITY SHOW TOP SHOT.

I ACTUALLY GOT MY FREE TECT

INTO THE FINALE BY HITTING A

GOLF BALL AT 100 YARDS WITH IT

AND NOBODY ELSE COULD COME

CLOSE.

HE TELLS US HIS SECRET TO

HITTING HIS TARGETS. DON'T GO

AWAY.

CBN TV ON CBN.COM. ALL THE

VIDEO YOU LOVE IN ONE EASY TO

USE LOCATION.

GORDON: THEY DON'T FINISH

FIRST.

IN MY FIRST RACE I WAS

SECOND TO LAST.

GORDON: THEY'RE STILL

CHAMPIONS.

I NEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS

POSSIBLE.

GORDON: ON THE NEXT 700

CLUB INTERACTIVE. THE TV SHOW

TOP SHOT SHOWS NAVY SEALS, ARMY

VETS, FBI AGENTS, BUT THE

WINNER OF SEASON THREE IS A

CAMP COUNSELOR NAMED DUSTIN.

IN THIS WEAPONS COMPETITION

16 SHARP SHOOTERS MUST MASTER

THE MOST PRIMITIVE OF WEAPONS

AND THE MOST SOPHISTICATED, AT

THE SAME TIME OVERCOMING

GRUELLING OBSTACLES. DUSTIN

WENT ON TO WIN THE TOP STOP,

BUT HE IS SELF TAUGHT.

PEN PENNIES AT 50 YARDS.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO IT.

I THINK WE'RE BREAKING SOME

SORT OF FEDERAL LAW. MANY

VIEWERS CONSIDERED HIM LEAST

LIKELY TO /WEUPBL. HE AND HIS

WIFE BRITTANY RUN A CHRISTIAN

SUMMER CAMP. IT'S A SUMMER

CHRISTIAN KIDS CAMP. WE HAVE

TONS OF FUN ACTIVITIES AND SHOW

'EM A /TKPWAO* GOOD TIME AND

TEACH 'EM ABOUT JESUS.

ONCE I STARTED GETTING INTO

THE CASTING PROCESS I WAS LIKE,

WOW, 3 MILLION VIEWERS AND

SUCH. WOW, GOD COULD USE THIS

AS A PLATFORM AND I COULD SEE

HOW MAYBE HE WANTED ME IN THAT.

IT'S REALITY TV SO THEY JUST

WANT YOU TO BE YOURSELF SO

THAT'S NO PROBLEM. I'M NOT AN

ACTOR, THAT'S FOR SURE.

DUSTIN SPENT A LOT OF TIME

WITH THE OTHER CONTESTANTS ON

THE SHOW.

MOST OF THE OTHER GUYS ARE

TOP SHOOTERS SO I THOUGHT I

MIGHT GET -- IT'S JUST

SOMETHING THAT'S BEEN IN ME

SINCE A LITTLE GUY, BB GUN IN

MY HAND. SUMMERS SPENT AT MY

GRANDPARENT'S FARM, SHOOTING

TREES WITH BB'S.

MOST OF THE TOP SHOT

CONTESTANTS HAD EXTENSIVE

TRAINING. HOW DID YOU BEAT

THESE GUYS.

GOD GAVE ME MY NATURAL

ABILITY. THERE'S A LOT OF

PRESSURE ON TOP SHOT SHOOTING

AND YOU DON'T SEE THE CAMERA

CREWS AND THE 200 PEOPLE THAT

MAKE IT HAPPEN BEHIND THE

CAMERA. AND KNOWING WHEN YOU

CAN'T THROW A ROCK STRAIGHT 3

MILLION PEOPLE ARE GONNA LAUGH

AT YOU ON TV AND A LOT OF GUYS

CRUMBLE UNDER THAT PRESSURE. I

WAS JUST THERE TO HAVE FUN AND

I KNEW I WAS JUST THERE

ENTRUSTING GOD TO EITHER HELP

ME DO GOOD OR IF HE'S DONE WITH

ME I'M CONTENT.

HITTING THE TARGETS WASN'T

THE TOUGHEST PART FOR DUSTIN.

HARDEST PART WAS SPENDING

THAT TIME AWAY FROM MY FAMILY

WITHOUT ANY CONTACT.

IT WAS A VERY LONG SIX WEEKS

AND DEAL WITH THE BOYS AND

ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT WHERE

DADDY IS AND NOT BEING ABLE TO

ANSWER TOO MANY QUESTIONS.

JUST DADDY'S OUTTA TOWN, HE'S

WORKING.

I LOVE 10-22S AND THIS IS A

PERFECTED ONE. I GOT MY FREE

TICKET INTO THE FINALE BY

HITTING A GOLF BALL AT 100

YARDS WITH IT AND NOBODY ELSE

COULD COME CLOSE. I WAS VERY

SURPRISED HOW I PERFORMED AND

MEASURED UP AGAINST ALL THESE

PROFESSIONAL SHOOTERS.

GORDON: I ASKED DUSTIN TO

GIVE ME A FEW SHOOTING TIPS AT

HIS RANGE.

OH YEAH, YOU DO.

I GOT IT.

THAT'S A SOFT TARGET TOO.

HE TOOK HOME THE 100,000

DOLLAR GRAND PRIZE. SOME OF

THAT MONEY IS COMING BACK HERE

TO CAMP HIS WAY TO TEACH KIDS

ABOUT GOD'S LOVE. AS YOU MIGHT

IMAGINE, DUSTIN'S GETTING LOTS

OF INVITATIONS TO SHARE HIS

STORY AND SKILLS. HAVE THE

NAVY SEALS COME CALLING ING

YET?

I WENT AND SHOT WITH THE FBI

THE OTHER DAY. I GOT PERFECT

CALLS ON ALL THEIR COURSES.

GOD GIVES US GIFTS IN MANY

THINGS AND IT'S AMAZING THAT HE

GIVES US GIFTS IN SHOOTING TO

BRING GLORY TO HIS NAME.

GORDON: IT REALLY REMINDS

ME OF THE STORY OF DAVID. HIS

PARENTS OWN THIS CAMP AND HE

GROWS UP IN IT AND HE TEACHES

HIMSELF HOW TO SHOOT. IMAGINE

LITTLE DAVID OUT THERE TENDING

SHEEP AND HE TEACHES HIMSELF

HOW TO USE A SLINGSHOT TO KEEP

AWAY THE BEARS AND WOLVES AND

OTHER THINGS TRY TO DESTROY THE

FLOCK. AND WHEN IT CAME TIME

FOR HIM TO PERFORM WITH ALL THE

OTHER ARMY VETERANS WHO ARE

AFRAID , BUT DAVID SAYS YES,

WITH GOD, I HAVE GOD'S FAVOR,

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE? AND HE

GOES ON TO SUCCEED. THAT'S

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE

GOD'S FAVOR. SO ASK FOR IT,

GET IT AND THEN TRUST HIM THAT

YOU HAVE IT FOR A LIFETIME.

IT'S TIME TO INTERACT WITH YOU.

LET'S GO TO JESSICA IN THE

CHAT ROOM

GORDON, LISA WRITES, IF I

ASK GOD TO DO ME A FAVOR FOR

GIVING UP A SIN, DO YOU THINK

HE'LL DO WHAT I ASK.

GORDON: NO. I DON'T THINK

SO. DON'T PLAY GAMES WITH GOD.

DON'T TEMPT HIM. GOD IS NOT

MOCKED, YOU REAP WHAT YOU SEW.

IT'S TO KEEP YOU FROM REAPING

FROM THAT SEWING. IT'S TRYING

TO HELP YOU. SO STOP THE SIN

AND THEN IF YOU SEEK HIS

KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,

ALL THE OTHER THINGS YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR ARE GOING TO BE

ADDED UNTO YOU.

ONE MONTH MARCIA BRADLEY

WENT TO BEING UNEMPLOYED TO

WORKING A TEMP JOB TO A

FULL-TIME JOB WITH A PROMOTION

AND IT ALL STARTED WITH JUST

ONE PHONE CALL.

THE SMALL TOWN OF CANNON,

GEORGIA WAS HIT HARD BY THE

RECESSION, JOBS WERE HARD TO

FIND. MARCIA AND HER HUSBAND

WERE OUT OF WORK AND THEY WERE

ENCOURAGED BY WATCHED THE 700

CLUB EVERY MORNING.

WE SAW HOW HE WAS GIVING TO

THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

WE BOTH JUST LOOKED AT EACH

OTHER AND IT WAS LIKE OUR

SPIRITS CONNECTED. SHE SAID

WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO? I SAID

GIVE.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH MONEY,

BUT THEY GAVE WHAT THEY COULD

-- FIVE DOLLARS. SHE APPLIED

FOR A TEMPORARY JOB AT AN EGG

FARM. TO HER SURPRISE SHE WAS

HIRED THAT NEXT DAY.

EVERYDAY I WOULD THANK GOD

FOR GIVING ME THIS JOB FOR JUST

BEING OBEDIENT TO HIM, HE GIVES

BACK.

THEY INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE

AND SOON SHE WAS PROMOTED TO

QUALITY CONTROL.

IT ENCOURAGE /-LD ME TO DO

MY PART, 'CAUSE GOD HAD ALREADY

DONE HIS PART.

SOON THEY INCREASED THEIR

PLEDGE AGAIN TO 40 DOLLARS A

MONTH.

WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT,

BUT I DON'T NEED A WHOLE LOT.

WE WATCHED ALL THE WORK AND

OUTREACH THAT THE 700 CLUB DOES

AND IT TOUCHED OUR HEARTS

TREMENDOUSLY.

I LOVE IT AND IT WOWS MY

HEART. IT REALLY DOES. IT'S

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY. WE CAN

FIND THAT MUCH ON THE GROUND IF

WE TRIED. GIVE IT A TRY AND

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

I LOVE THEIR STORY. IT

REALLY IS THE ANSWER TO THE

QUESTION THAT JUST CAME IN ON

THE COMPUTER BECAUSE THAT WAS

THE QUESTION SAYING IF I WANT

SOMETHING AND I MAKE A DEAL

WITH GOD, CAN I GET HIM TO DO

WHAT I WANT? THIS IS A COUPLE

WHO WAS LISTENING WHEN GOD

SHOWED THEM WHAT A NEED WAS IN

SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE. A COUPLE

WHO, WITH VERY LITTLE, SAID

WE'RE GONNA STAND UP AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE AND THEN THE FAVOR

OF GOD FELL UPON THEM. I WANT

TO ENCOURAGE TODAY TO ASK GOD

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE WORLD

AND HOW DO YOU WANT TO USE ME?

HE USES ALL OF US WHEN WE OFFER

OURSELVES TO HIM. WE ARE DOING

SO MANY THINGS AROUND WE DO IT

ALL TOGETHER WITH PEOPLE JUST

LIKE YOU. WE'RE FEEDING THE

HUNGRY, CLOTHING THE NAKED,

EDUCATING KIDS WHO HAVE NO

OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO SCHOOL,

GIVING CLEAN WATER TO VILLAGES

AROUND THE WORLD. BRINGING THE

MESSAGE OF GOD'S LOVE ALL

ACROSS THE WORLD. THIS IS A

GREAT DAY TO JOIN THOUSANDS OF

US WHO ARE OUT TO CHANGE THE

WORLD. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL THE TOLL FROM NUMBER THAT

YOU SEE 1-888 -- MEANS YOUR

BANK DOES ALL THE WORK. I LOVE

IT. NO ENVELOPS TO HAVE ON

HAND, NO STAMP TO REMEMBER.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO REBEL TO

SEND IT, IT DOES IT FOR YOU.

MONTHLY TEACHINGS, YOU'RE GOING

TO LOVE THEM. CALL RIGHT NOW,

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

GORDON: THAT'S ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR THIS PROGRAM. WE

LEAVE YOU WITH THIS. HIS FAVOR

IS BUT FOR A MOMENT, HIS FAVOR

IS
