00:00 hello everyone tonight I will share
00:06 about the joy and the triumph that the
00:08 holy spirit brings the past few months
00:12 Sue Burdullis has been teaching on psalms
00:14 101 oh three and we focused on Jesus's
00:18 sacrifice his suffering for us his
00:21 resurrection his promise to return to us
00:25 we've experienced our Heavenly Father's
00:28 love and His faithfulness to us Psalm
00:32 100 is a song of Thanksgiving and praise
00:36 for the Lord's faithfulness to his
00:38 people in reflecting on God's
00:40 faithfulness I ask you to take a minute
00:43 and remember a difficult time that
00:46 you've gone through with Lord the Lord a
00:50 difficult time that God brought you
00:52 through that you've finished that season
00:55 that you finished that trial that that
00:57 is done I want you to think about that
01:01 and then we're going to talk about how
01:04 do we get through these trials how do we
01:06 go through suffering and trials and hang
01:09 on to the Lord in the midst of it
01:12 because I believe that he brings us
01:14 through every one of our trials I wanted
01:21 to read what pastor Steve wrote on the
01:24 art of abiding I think you all got a
01:26 copy of that and this is what he says in
01:29 John 14:2 and three Jesus made the
01:32 promise to his disciples that he was
01:34 going to prepare a place for them and in
01:37 doing so would return to receive them to
01:40 himself so that where he was they would
01:43 be also but today Jesus is in heaven
01:46 while we live on earth so how can we
01:49 possibly be where he is through the art
01:52 of abiding abiding is the practice of
01:55 entering into Christ as he literally is
01:58 the place prepared for us in
02:00 righteousness peace and joy by accepting
02:04 his gift as complete and finished we can
02:07 dwell in his victory and loving presence
02:10 at any time all the time we do this
02:13 through
02:13 faith with time and plenty of practice
02:17 this is where prayer comes in as we set
02:20 ourselves apart from our daily life and
02:22 enter into Christ and all that he has
02:25 accomplished abiding begins as we allow
02:28 his word to take root in us this is
02:31 easier than it sounds
02:32 because we need to match the Word of God
02:34 to who Jesus is for us right now in our
02:38 current moment of struggle or
02:40 tribulation in other words I abide in
02:43 Jesus inside his love as an antidote to
02:47 the fear that I might be currently
02:49 experiencing I will need his word to
02:52 hold my place I know his love casts out
02:55 fear and I know when I'm experiencing
02:58 his love I feel safe and secure but at
03:01 this moment I might not this is where
03:04 his words abiding in me can shift my
03:07 emotions and experience into his truth
03:10 in his presence there is a place in
03:14 Jesus where his truth and presence
03:16 becomes more real tangible and bigger
03:19 than any current experience I happen to
03:22 be living on this earth let me give you
03:26 an example of how I've learned to
03:27 practice the art of abiding in Jesus
03:29 let's take the verse in the Bible that
03:32 says perfect love casts out fear that's
03:35 wonderful but where does it say that we
03:37 need the anchor of the address for
03:41 example if I've never been to your house
03:43 before and you invite me you would give
03:45 me your address I would put your address
03:48 in my phone and maps would immediately
03:50 locate your house and give me directions
03:52 today our Bible apps can locate the
03:55 address of Scripture with a simple
03:57 phrase we type in even Google will find
03:59 a scripture for us when we type in a few
04:01 words we vaguely remember I highly
04:04 encourage you to do this anytime the
04:06 Holy Spirit brings a scripture to your
04:08 heart now that we have the address in
04:10 this case its first John 4:18 there is
04:14 no fear in love but perfect love casts
04:17 out fear because fear involves torment
04:20 but he who fears has not been made
04:22 perfect in love now we can go to it in
04:26 our Bible or
04:27 our Bible app and read it out loud
04:30 slowly we can listen to the words see
04:34 the words even feel the words that we
04:36 are reading we may even be drawn to one
04:39 or two words in the verse and have a
04:41 desire to know the original meeting
04:43 meaning then we can refer to the
04:47 concordance app and find its meaning yes
04:50 it can be a bit time-consuming to find
04:52 scriptures for ourselves and locate them
04:54 in our Bible then read them to ourselves
04:56 meditate on them mutter them out loud or
04:59 pause to feel and experience their
05:01 richness their cleansing or their truth
05:04 this however is what abiding is it's
05:07 allowing his word to find a resting
05:09 place inside of us
05:11 so that we can grow the sound of his
05:13 word and truly experience it inside of
05:16 us inside of Jesus I have found in 42
05:20 years of walking with Jesus and coming
05:22 to know him that this practice of
05:24 abiding is so so worth the time the
05:29 first time I come to your house I might
05:30 get lost the second time I might forget
05:33 how I got there but after a while I will
05:36 know my way to your home by heart and
05:38 that's what Jesus has invited us to
05:40 practice finding our way into the place
05:44 that he has prepared for us learning our
05:46 way to his home while we allow his
05:49 spirits to or allow his words to rest in
05:52 our hearts and soon we will know our way
05:54 home by heart I just thought that really
05:57 encompasses what I want to speak about
06:00 tonight
06:02 when we experience temporary sufferings
06:08 and I'm going to say temporary because
06:10 they are it can be a trauma a trial an
06:14 infirmity a challenge of fear a chaos
06:18 afflictions whenever we want to call it
06:22 our Father and Jesus invite us to
06:25 experience the joy and the triumph that
06:27 the Holy Spirit brings to our lives now
06:31 when we're in the midst or in the
06:32 beginning of a trial a challenge it
06:35 doesn't feel like it's temporary usually
06:37 it usually feels like this is never
06:39 going to end how do
06:40 get out of this and Pastor Steve's been
06:43 teaching us for quite a while now on how
06:46 to invite Jesus into that place we want
06:49 to get out of it but Jesus is in it and
06:53 I think it's an opportunity for us to
06:56 get to know him
06:57 get to know the kingdom of God better so
07:03 these trials can be overwhelming and I
07:09 know my first response is usually
07:11 withdrawn and you're trying to think
07:14 with your mind why did this happen how
07:16 did this happen and how do I get out of
07:18 here but before I share the keys to
07:22 walking with the Holy Spirit through
07:24 these trials let me share about the
07:29 wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit God
07:32 designed our spirit to lead and our soul
07:36 to submit to our Holy Spirit to our
07:39 spirit our culture ignores our spirit
07:42 and emphasizes our soul but we are
07:47 blessed to have Camarillo Healing Rooms
07:49 The Healing Rooms churches where we can
07:51 sit and learn about the kingdom of God
07:54 learn his word the freedom to worship
07:57 the Lord I'm so thankful that we are
08:00 this blessed being filled with the
08:03 spirit means that God's Spirit infuses
08:06 and inspires us so that our whole person
08:08 is conformed to God's truth and his
08:11 intention for us our destiny he is a
08:15 plan for us he has a destiny for us when
08:21 Holy Spirit comes upon us it is an
08:23 invitation to venture with God as he
08:26 imparts his vision to us Holy Spirit is
08:30 the anointing that covers us it is the
08:32 power of the Living resurrected Jesus
08:36 Christ in us Holy Spirit is the one who
08:40 has the power to act on the Word of God
08:42 God's love is expressed to us in his
08:46 word and by the outpouring of his Holy
08:48 Spirit Holy Spirit is here to comfort us
08:52 when we have a wounded spirit
08:54 and to journey with us toward healing so
08:58 I have a couple questions for you
09:00 what are you needing God to be for you
09:03 right now
09:07 what are you trusting God for
09:15 now what would your facial expression
09:18 look like if you saw the full answer if
09:22 you saw the victory if you saw the
09:26 ending if you saw the finish would you
09:31 be weighted down I know when a trial
09:33 comes I get weighted down or would joy
09:37 would I have joy would my facial
09:39 expression be a smile would I be what
09:43 did they say when your your beaming and
09:46 your shining when you've come through a
09:50 trial we're like that how about at the
09:53 beginning in the middle
09:55 how would you walk how would you talk if
09:58 you already had the solution if the
10:01 trial was finished because the truth is
10:04 it is finished Jesus sees it as finished
10:09 and he wants us to see his finished work
10:12 you see overcoming obstacles and going
10:15 through trials transforms us into the
10:18 image of Jesus we grow we mature we
10:24 become like Christ we have unity with
10:26 God and with each other we can walk in
10:32 newness of life
10:33 learning to be alive in God declaring
10:36 who we are in Jesus this process of
10:40 growing and stretching is painful at
10:42 times i know i i'd read growing I want
10:49 to grow but I dread the work that
10:52 process it hurts the stretching but once
10:57 it's done I soon forget that that goes
11:02 aside and the glorious work of what Holy
11:06 Spirit is doing and what Jesus has
11:08 already done the Hat becomes in the
11:11 forefront of my mind and my heart so the
11:17 keys to the kingdom that I hope to
11:20 impart tonight is that we would be
11:24 intentional when we see you know when we
11:27 when a trial comes
11:29 I have a tendency to stop and then try
11:32 and figure it out what's going on you
11:34 know how do I change this direction and
11:37 instead I want my first response to be
11:42 seeking God's kingdom seek first the
11:45 kingdom of God and all these things will
11:48 be added unto you
11:50 so my I'm hoping each each trial I go
11:54 through I think I get stronger in this
11:56 to go first to the Lord to quiet myself
12:00 to become intimately acquainted with
12:03 God's love to go to the secret place
12:06 we've heard all these terms before but
12:09 sometimes it's hard to take that step
12:10 it's a step of faith go and be quiet and
12:16 listen for the Lord's voice abide in
12:19 God's presence and just sit and enjoy
12:22 his love for you he's not worried about
12:25 this whatever however big this problem
12:28 is he's not concerned so go there and be
12:32 comforted meditate on the word and allow
12:36 God's Word to get deeply rooted or get
12:40 us deeply rooted in God's Word and in
12:43 him and value this time with him I think
12:49 back to the trials in my life
12:52 infirmities changes loss of loved one so
12:59 many different trials that we go through
13:01 and I want to spend time with the Lord
13:05 but we're focused on the things around
13:08 us our family our friends the our jobs
13:10 the things that we are responsible for
13:13 and I think sometimes I'm torn I'm not
13:17 valuing this precious time with the Lord
13:21 because abiding in his presence I have
13:24 found that he shows he shows us things
13:28 that we wouldn't notice if we were on
13:30 the way and we didn't have a trial that
13:32 was stopping us so I found that being
13:37 quiet and going slower and spending more
13:40 time in the word spending
13:41 or timings in his presence he reveals
13:45 these new truths he reveals a reveals
13:49 his word and it becomes life to me I
13:58 also have noticed and this may be for
14:01 some or not but in those times of trial
14:05 the Lord is so gracious he has given me
14:08 dreams when I'm anxious when I am so
14:12 focused on how to just manage whatever
14:15 the issue is I can lay down and rest and
14:20 God has been so gracious to give me
14:22 dreams that would either give me some
14:25 direction or comfort or clarity on
14:28 something that we're praying about and I
14:32 value that I treasure that that's one
14:34 way that God speaks to us so that's the
14:38 first key the second key is to thank God
14:42 for this time and of course you know
14:44 we're thinking I'm not thankful I don't
14:47 want this trial but to thank God for it
14:51 ask him what are you teaching me what
14:54 are you showing me where do I look in
14:56 your word what do I need for my next
14:59 he's preparing you for the next part of
15:01 your journey this season of hardship of
15:05 difficulty this rocky road where you
15:07 can't see the future he's showing you
15:12 how to navigate this and he's preparing
15:15 you with tools to go into your future
15:19 the things that you need for your future
15:22 so thank you I think I start thinking
15:26 them ok I'm not happy for about my my
15:29 trial but lord I thank you for Jesus as
15:32 sacrifice I thank you for your word I
15:35 thank you for your Holy Spirit I thank
15:37 you for your faithfulness I thank you
15:39 that we can hear your voice I thank you
15:41 that you know the path that I should
15:43 take and you're gonna lead me on this
15:45 path I thank you that you are all
15:48 sufficient and then another part of this
15:52 is humility
15:54 and generosity so instead of going in a
15:58 cave and withdrawing I would try to step
16:04 out and whatever you have in your hands
16:07 whatever the enemy is trying to pull
16:09 from you freely give it as the Holy
16:16 Spirit would direct you I find that if
16:19 my finances are being challenged if we
16:22 have a real trial in our finances we
16:26 start being very generous enemy is not
16:30 going to steal anything from us I'm
16:32 going to trust the Lord we are going to
16:34 give away in faith believing that God
16:39 will supply our every need so that's the
16:45 second key the third key is praise and
16:49 worship we become like the one that we
16:53 worship sing your scriptures sing in
16:59 your spiritual language he deserves the
17:02 highest praise all the time and
17:06 breakthrough has come and worship there
17:09 had been times I've been in worship and
17:12 the Lord again gives a clear answer I'm
17:16 I'm not even focusing on my problem but
17:20 God drops you know Holy Spirit just
17:22 comes and drops in a solution or clarity
17:25 or direction and it's just you know
17:29 that's when I just melt that's when I go
17:31 to tears that's when I go to my knees
17:33 thank you Lord he's so gracious he's so
17:35 kind and so faithful he is in it all and
17:40 as he sees that you take those steps of
17:42 faith he blesses it he blesses you he's
17:45 a good good father who's continually
17:49 blessing us
17:54 so the fourth key is to pray and pray
17:59 and pray pray the word pray the promises
18:03 of God God has promised you a future and
18:09 a hope you have dreams in you that God
18:13 has placed there
18:14 those are promises from God pray them
18:18 bless your spirit we spend a lot of time
18:23 when we're in a trial figuring out
18:26 trying to figure out the solutions to
18:29 our need but I have found that blessing
18:33 our spirit is so powerful bless your
18:36 spirit your soul and your body to be in
18:42 the unity with the gut with God's plan
18:44 and his word
18:46 you can pray God's attributes lord I
18:51 thank you you are my provider and you
18:54 supply all of my needs according to your
18:56 riches and glory by Christ Jesus so you
18:59 can pray the scripture sing the
19:00 scriptures and number five is ask Holy
19:09 Spirit to help you ask him he's waiting
19:13 he's waiting he has so much for you he's
19:19 waiting for you to ask how do I do this
19:22 where do I go comfort me
19:27 so surrender to Him surrender means to
19:32 lay our plans aside to see God's vision
19:35 and move with the Holy Spirit to step
19:39 forward in faith and to trust God and
19:41 that's not always easy that is probably
19:45 the most uncomfortable part of all of
19:47 this okay so now I am hearing from the
19:50 Lord but I have to take these steps I
19:52 have to do something I have to partner I
19:55 have to not only hear and trust God but
20:00 I have to do something whatever that may
20:03 be you may be asking you to move he
20:06 maybe asking you to forgive someone he
20:10 may be asking you to do something that's
20:15 really uncomfortable what do you wrestle
20:17 with what do you what are you
20:19 uncomfortable with go there with him
20:22 he's there's healing in that and I'll
20:25 just share quickly you know my daughter
20:27 was in the hospital in and out for
20:29 several years I'm the kind of person
20:31 that fainted when I got my ears pierced
20:33 and so being in a hospital was very
20:36 uncomfortable for me and you know the
20:41 tubes and not all the bells and whistles
20:42 and all this stuff but I'll tell you we
20:46 had I had just had to ask Holy Spirit to
20:49 show me show me to be brave show me give
20:54 me understanding clarity and none of
20:57 that bothers me anymore
20:58 God healed me in the midst of our
21:01 daughter's trial she's the one that was
21:04 suffering but God healed us of so many
21:06 different things as we went through that
21:08 trial it is just amazing how God you
21:12 know I asked the Lord just to heal our
21:16 daughter and God said I want to heal the
21:19 whole family then you're like oh that's
21:23 so much y'all I'm just asking for this
21:24 prayer Lord but he's got such a bigger
21:27 plan he's he has healing for each of us
21:32 in so many he knows the areas that we
21:35 can step forward in faith he knows where
21:37 we are and he wants to go take us in the
21:42 new direction I believe that God answers
21:46 all of our prayers and he supplies all
21:49 that we need to go forward in his plan
21:51 even when we face these obstacles and
21:54 they can be mountains in front of us but
21:59 in the midst of it he develops the fruit
22:01 of the Spirit in us we become like Jesus
22:03 we become and then we can go out with
22:09 the fruit of the Spirit we can go bless
22:11 others as we've been blessed
22:15 so I want to read Romans 5:1 35 the
22:19 faith triumphs and trouble
22:22 therefore having been justified by faith
22:25 we have peace with God through our Lord
22:27 Jesus Christ through whom also we have
22:30 access by faith into this grace which we
22:34 in which we stand and rejoice in hope of
22:37 the glory of God and not only that but
22:41 we also glory in tribulations knowing
22:43 that tribulation produces perseverance
22:46 and perseverance character and character
22:49 hope now hope does not disappoint
22:52 because the love of God has been poured
22:54 out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who
22:57 is given to us we don't like - you know
23:02 I've always kind of avoided this
23:04 scripture I don't I don't want to know
23:06 about the persevering I'm not patient
23:10 lord but he teaches us patience when we
23:13 need that he teaches he gives us
23:16 character he gives us hope and it
23:20 doesn't disappoint so I believe that God
23:28 is here tonight the presence of the Lord
23:31 the Living God your Abba daddy father
23:34 Holy Spirit is here joyfully
23:39 anticipating us partnering with him our
23:44 adversary wants to steal our joy and for
23:48 us to stay stuck in our trial and for us
23:51 to lose hope in the trial but God has so
23:55 much more for us he's calling us to
23:59 leave things behind leave what we know
24:02 and what we rely on that is in us our
24:07 self sufficiency and to be yielded to
24:11 his holy spirit to experience more in
24:16 him and with him and it can be
24:19 uncomfortable to walk in faith but it's
24:24 really a beautiful walk it is a
24:26 beautiful walk think about it we don't
24:29 have to we don't have to pick out the
24:33 trail and we don't have to clear it and
24:36 we don't have to do that the Holy Spirit
24:37 does that for us
24:39 he's leading us and we follow God has
24:45 given us his precious word I am so
24:48 thankful for the Word of God what would
24:51 we do without the Word of God and then
24:53 he blesses us with the Holy Spirit who
24:55 empowers the Word of God so tonight I'd
25:02 like to invite you think about the
25:05 questions I asked earlier what do you
25:07 need God to be for you right now and
25:10 what do you need from God so let's take
