Bishop T.D. JAKES sermons : Faith to succeed

Posted on

Isaiah 25:8

Birthing-everything you bring forth-comes through sorrow. If you’re going to bring forth anything in your career, your marriage or your life; if you’re going to develop anything in your character; if you’re going to be a fruitful woman, it will come through the things you suffer. You will enter into strength through sorrow.


            Sorrow is not the object; it is simply the canal through which the object comes. For every sorrow, for every intense groaning in your spirit, you ought to have something to show for it. Don’t let the devil give you sorrow without seed. Any time you have sorrow, it is a sign that God is trying to gat something though you and to you.


            You are the entrance of all things. You are the door of life. You are a vehicle, an expression of blessing if there is to be any virtue, any praise, any victory, any deliverance; it has to come through you.

            Satan wants to use you as a legal entry into this world or into your family. That’s how he attempted to destroy the human race with the first family. Be careful what you allow to come through you. Close the doors to the enemy. Then know that when travail comes into your spirit, it’s because you’re about to give birth. When you see sorrow multiply, it is a sign that God is getting ready to send something to you.


            Don’t become so preoccupied with the pain that you forget to push the baby. When the pain is at its peak, that’s when you have to push. Push! You don’t have time to cry. Push! You don’t have to be suicidal. Push! This is not the time to give up. Push, because God is about to birth a promise through you. Cry if  you must, and groan if you have to, but keep on pushing. God has promised that if it is to come into the world, it has to pass through you.


            Don’t settle for the pain and not receive the benefit. Disregard the pain and hold out for the promises. Understand that God has promises some things to you that He wants you to have and you’ve got to stay there on the table until you get to the place where you ought to be in the Lord. Don’t become so engrossed with what’s hurting you that you’re not doing what it takes to produce fruit in your life.


            If you’re in a financial rut, bring forth. If you’re in need of healing for your body, bring forth. In you are seeing deliverance from a besetting sin, bring forth. Understand that it must be brought forth. It doesn’t just happen by accident. That why you have suffered pain. Hang on! After all, the pain is forgotten when the baby is born.

    I want to thank you for all of the sermons that I have seen, they were of great helped to me at a time when I asked myself Where is God when I am in so many trials ? why hasen”t, he come into my situation and saved me yet?
    Thank you for the many teachings on how to suceed as a child my parents made it alright for me to just exixt in fact my father would say to me you are a great starter but not a great finisher a problem I still have today. I was told you must have a man to be incharge of things amd when I did he could not evenmanage . his own self but through it all I have re-learnt Jesus must be the man in charge He never fails . Your sermons and DVD help me see that again a catholic

    Oh my God you know the way the way the Bishop atticulates his sermons is a bare testimony that God has a plan about our lives and are to hang on,keep pressing knowing that in all that we do we have to endure the pain of the Cross where all has been done and settled therefore we have a God who is faithful in all that he has promised us.God enrich,bless and keep the Man safe and sound.
