if you have your Bibles open them with

me to the book uh First Kings chapter 20

and we’re going to read a story in the

Old Testament that the Lord laid on my

heart this week and I want you to let it

speak to you look in first Kings chapter

20 it starts bad but it ends good now

Ben Hadad the king of Syria gathered all

his forces together 32 kings were with

him with horses and chariots he went up

and besieged Samaria and made war

against it when he sent Messengers into

the city to Ahab king of Israel and said

to him thus says Ben

Hadad I want to mention that that he was

named after his father his father’s name

was Hadad and it

means the king of

whirlwinds his father was such a brutal

man and now the

son which notice the terminology of the

words it talks about I’m going to make

you like dust that’s he’s saying I Am

The Reincarnation of my father and I’m

coming to destroy like a

whirlwind verse three listen to the

enemy your silver and your gold are mine

your loveliest wives and children are

mine the king of Israel answered and

said oh my Lord oh King just as you said

say no

resistance no

opposition you want my family you want

my marriage you want my business you

want my

finances just as you

say and all that I have is yours verse

five then the messenger came back

because the devil never stops once you

let him in he takes more and he takes

more he comes to kill steal and destroy

he never stops if you let him in he

keeps taking if you don’t

learn how to resist the enemy he will

never flee he’ll keep

coming and the messenger came back and

said thus says Ben hey Dad saying I

indeed I have sent you saying you shall

deliver me your silver your gold your

wives and your children but I send my

servants to you tomorrow about this time

and they will search your house

coming in your house the houses of your

servants and it shall be that whatever

is Pleasant in your eyes anything that

brings you pleasure anything that brings

you Joy anything that makes

you just be glad to be alive or it means

something is really precious to you and

pleasant when you think about it I’m

taking it I’m taking it whatever is

Pleasant in your eyes they will put it

in their hands and take it

so the king of Israel called the Elders

of the land he said ‘ notice please how

these men seek trouble they’ve sent me

and sent for my wives and children

silver and gold and I did not deny him

and the elders and all the people said

to him it’s bad when the people have to

tell the leader how to

lead do not listen or

consent therefore he said to The

Messengers of Ben hey Dad tell my Lord

the king all that you sent your servant

I was willing to do but this thing I

cannot do and The Messengers departed

and he came back and that’s when he says

in verse 10 I’ll make you like I’ll come

like a whirlwind like won’t nothing be

left but dust verse 11 finally The

Narrative change the narrative

changes so the king of Israel after

saying yes yes yes you can have it you

can have it tell him let not the one who

puts his armor on boast like he who

takes it

off verse 13 suddenly a prophet

approached Ahab king of Israel and God

said I’ll deliver the enemy into your

hand I want to talk to you for a few

minutes about this story because I

believe it’s a powerful lesson you hear

a lot in the media today about

controlling the narrative you hear it in

politics you hear it in sports you hear

it in even in in in controversies and

crisis whoever controls the narrative

controls the outcome that’s the thought

that’s what people believe if you keep

saying it doesn’t matter what the truth

is just control the narrative and you

will control the

outcome and in this story it’s

like Ben haad this evil Syrian King and

his army links up with 32 other Kings

because he had tried to conquer Israel

before you read it again and again and

yet again it says and yet again they

came against Israel and he couldn’t

defeat them but this time was different

because he hired 32 different nations

their kings and their armies against

one group of

farmers the

Israelites and it was because Ben Hadad

knew the power of their God

and he thought this time because I’ve

got 32 Kings and their armies plus my

own army they do not have a chance their

back is against the wall I’m going to

destroy them the reason you face great

resistance is because the devil knows

who you

are the enemy knows who you are I

believe that the devil’s afraid of this

church I believe he knows I believe

demon demons know that we’re here

today I believe that he’s afraid because

we’re anointed to pray we’re anointed to

preach we’re anointed to sing we’re

anointed to lift Jesus up we’re anointed

to lay hands on people we’re anointed

today to set captives free we’re

anointed today to change the narrative

in somebody’s life who has accepted

addiction and bondage for the rest of

your life that’s what the enemy tells

you and as long as you keep letting him

come and take and take and take he’ll

take your family he’ll take your life

he’ll take your aspirations your dreams

your money your resources you he will

take it all and then he’ll come after

that which is pleasurable and seems good

to you and things that you enjoy to

where you’re suicidal and you see no

reason to keep hoping and keep believing

that’s what the enemy wants to do Ahab

had his back against the wall so much so

that for the nation of Israel he was

surrendering he was in the process of

negotiating a surrender and everything

the enemy would say is I don’t surrender

I don’t coexist with you I don’t if you

let me in your life I come to destroy

your life don’t ever think I’m here to

be your buddy that’s what Ben ha as

don’t ever think we’re just going to get

along I’m coming I’m taking you children

children I’m taking your grandchildren

I’m taking your wife I’m taking I’m

after your husband you think he’s cute

I’m after him I want to mess him up I

want to mess your family up I want to

mess your life up I want to mess your

body up I want to mess you

up I am not here to play games with you

you got to see Satan in this story right

and his Na and his narrative for your

life is disaster and kill steal and dest

destroy according to John 10:10 that’s

all he’s after it may be pleasure for a

moment but ultimately he comes to kill

steal and

destroy that’s hell’s

agenda the devil keeps pushing for more

and more I want every precious thing in


sight whatever is precious to you I want

it everything you

like and there’s that moment when the

elders spoke to Ahab with such Authority

that they said don’t consent what do you

mean you he he sent he kept taking and

you haven’t stood up and there comes

that moment when the whole Narrative of

the story changes because if you change

the narrative you change the

outcome so many of us just sit back and

let the enemy attack and we think well

we are helpless Len that’s just how it

goes and we don’t have any say so but

I’ve come today to preach about when

Victory begins to discover that it has a

voice don’t let the enemy do all the

trash talking don’t let the enemy do all

the threats and the fear mongering among

your life don’t let the world and other

people’s opinion even control The

Narrative of your life

116 times Jesus said but I say unto you

he knew when he came into the world the

devil in the Garden of Eden had captured

the narrative and he was in control and

he said death he said steal he said kill

and man was just had to go along but

Jesus said I am here now and the word

has become flesh and I’m dwelling among

you and the enemy says you’re defeated

and you’re and you’re and you don’t have

a hope and you don’t have a future but I

say unto you I say he’s not going to

kill steal and destroy everything

Pleasant in your life I have come to

give you life and give it more

abundantly victory has a voice you have

to talk Victory you have to get to that

moment and I love it because there came

that moment when something snapped in

him something said I have surrendered

and gave up all that I’m going to give

up I’m taking everything you’ve got Ben

haad said and he said I was when I

started this conversation okay and some

of you have your back against the wall

the enemy is coming right now like a

flood like a

whirlwind and he’s promising to reduce

you down to ashes and nothing but dust

and I love the power of an anointed

service because you’re watching me on

television and the enemy said I want

your gold and your silver and your

business is under attack and he and he’s

coming he said I want your children and

your children are under attack and your

marriages I want your wife I want your

husband it’s all hitting on every front

and then he’s going through saying I’m

going to take the pleasure and the joy

out of life I’m going to make you so

miserable so M that you can’t even enjoy

you don’t have peace I want you sucking

your teeth I want you negative I want

you walking around just hating life and

bitter and angry and mad and

upset everything Pleasant I’m coming


it and that might be how you walked in

here but you came to the wrong service

and you’re watching the wrong

program because the prophet showed up

with a word from the Lord in the text

that I read and that word is still alive

in this year in this day in this hour

and in our lives and our

families you know he said basically I

like how what Ahab something hit him

something came all over them you know

there’s two kinds of Fighters there’s

like people who train and they do MMA

and Judo and uh karate and they’re ready

I mean they are playing they’ve been

waiting on this day their whole life

they go into Kung Fu mode and they’re

ready to go and then there’s those

people who they they don’t work out much

they but but if you don’t watch

it sometimes you can catch them on the

wrong day I I’m I’m one of those people

I I I will run any day I can run I’m a

runner I’ll outrun you but I don’t want

to fight you but there are days I I I I

don’t even want to tell the story that

keeps coming to my mind but when my

little boy Drake was about that big and

he was playing football and and and

there was a man out on the field that

that was on the other team and he

grabbed my son and and and jerked him

and shook him like that by his shoulder

pads and he wasn’t his coach he’s just

shaking him something came over me I

jumped over the fence it was like slow

motion I was running through the

field get your hands off my boy

house and thank God one of our members

happened to be out there and he ran

across and grabbed me and said hold on


and it I snap back to who I

am but we were going to fight it was

going down right there on that field and

that’s how we ought to feel when the

enemy says I’m going to destroy your

children and your family because this

battle is not ours we’re fighting with

God backing up the cross has won the

battle the blood has won the battle it

is not by might or power power it’s by

my spirit saith the Lord of hosts I need

somebody to give God a praise if you

believe I do not intend to let hell

control the


well you got cancer so now you got a

decision are you going to let hell

control the narrative because hell’s

going to tell you what to say just give

up just know that you’re going to die

just know there’s no hope and people die

and and so God doesn’t heal anymore and

you know so many people who died so just


up or you can say devil you cannot

threaten me with

Heaven are you

crazy what if you die what if I do it’s

called a short cut to

Heaven nothing can separate me from the

love of God and so I will until my last

breath say things like by his stripes

I’m Healed and when people ask me to

pray for him I don’t care what condition

they’re in if I’m coming I’m going to

lay my hands and say Lord I I commit

them to you but I’m praying that you’ll

heal them either heal them in this room

or take them to heaven and heal them but

no more suffer and I’m going to tell you

what God is still a Healer by his

stripes you better learn you better

learn not to let the enemy just keep

coming and attacking your mind your body

your family and you have no resistance

you control the narrative the Bible said

in Proverbs 18 life and death are in the

power of your tongue and you eat the

fruit thereof

somebody’s in the storm of your life

you’re ready to throw up your hands and

quit you’re all ready to negotiating the

surrender but the Lord has sent me today

to tell you victory has a

voice and it wasn’t until that King

began to use his voice to Proclaim

victory that the battle started turning

these stories were written for our

learning the Bible said we’re supposed

suppos to react like God shows us in the

scripture and victory doesn’t come until

we understand that victory has a

voice you should say things like what

the Bible says if you’re barely hanging

on and you’re in a bad place there’s a

scripture in the Bible that says now

thanks be unto God who always gives us

the victory

in every place there’s nowhere I go what

does that mean does that mean I won’t go

through stuff does that mean I’m not

suffering does that mean I won’t ever go

through pain I won’t ever go through

attacks I won’t go through loss I won’t

go through any negative stuff no listen

to what he said now thanks be unto God

who always gives us the victory in every

place what does that mean that means it

doesn’t matter where I find myself it

doesn’t matter what happens to me and my

family God still has promised Victory

and we are to put a voice to that

Victory the cross has won the blood has

won the name of Jesus has won and here’s

what the Bible said that I carry with me

Jesus is with me no matter what I go

through that’s what he promises no

matter how much I’m broken and crying

he’s with me therefore he cannot be

defeated and I am his

child take a praise break right

now when Victory starts

talking devil you want a fight you might

beat me but you’re going to know you

were in a fight I’m going to swing I’m

going to hit I’m going to scratch like a

girl I’m going to poke you in the eye

I’m going to pull your hair I’m going to

spit I’m going to kick you in places you

don’t want me to kick you I’ll do I’ll

fight any way I have to fight but you’re

not getting my family you’re not getting

my finances you’re not getting my joy

and my pleasure in life for in his

presence there’s fullness of joy and at

his right hand are Pleasures forever

more turn to somebody and say the

sorrowful crying days will not last


forever pleasure needs to come

back well I’m single and looking

pleasure change that change the

narrative I’m single and looking for

Jesus to come and if he decides to give

me a mate great if he doesn’t I’m happy

just like I am go anywhere I want to go

do anything I want to do the most

miserable people I know are not people

who are sick let’s just tell the truth

now I just want to say somebody needs to

give Victory a voice not when you get a

ring or not when you get the job or not

when you get the house what about right

here right now in every

place pleasure enjoy the goodness of God

you could be hooked up to a ventilator

you could be getting chemotherapy but

hear you set and you’re letting worry

torment you control the narrative and

you control the

outcome let Victory start speaking

through your mouth let Joy start

speaking through your mouth let peace

start speaking through your mouth let

purpose start coming through your mouth

let Faith start coming talk Faith talk

Victory talk good success talk blessed I

tell you I feel like saying it like I

wrote it I walk in favor Hallelujah I

walk in wisdom I walk in blessing I walk

I know the enemy’s got weapons pointing

at me but no weapon form shall prosper

I’ll just control that

narrative I refuse to preach until the

dead head shout

too everybody that’s got breath

give God some

praise oh I feel this thing it’s more

than a preacher getting you hyped up

when you begin to do what that book says

when you begin to praise him when you’re

going through suffering and pain and

Brokenness God notices things people

don’t notice

I believe today’s message is speaking to

you and God knows exactly where you are

what you’re going through he has Mercy

he has Grace he has forgiveness he has

love he has

healing he is for you he is not mad at

you he loves you so right where you are

just pray this prayer and say Jesus I

surrender to you please I give you my

Brokenness heal and I put it in the

Potter’s hand form and

remake A New Beginning for me in my life

I give it all to you today thank you for

the cross thank you for the blood you

shed it cleanses me and Lord I receive

it and if you need healing I want to

pray for you Lord stretch for with your

hand you are still a healing Miracle

working savior there’s power in the name

of Jesus to restore your health and Lord

I speak health and healing you shall

live and not die and declare the works

of the Lord you shall recover in Jesus

name Hallelujah if this spoke to you

this house we saw the father lying here

behind me on the floor with a knife in

his hand and in the shelter behind me
