PASTOR TD JAKES SERMON HOW TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE : Pastor T.D Jakes teaches us how well the Israelites held on to their memory of which they are, that’s how they were able to hold on to who they are. You can take me to Babylon but you can’t make me a Babylonian I will always be who I am, I don’t care where you dragged me, I don’t care what you do to me, I don’t care what you take from me, taking me to Babylon doesn’t make me a Babylonian, you can change my name and they did you can change my clothes and they did, you can impart a name on me that honours your God and they did that too but you can never make me forget who I am.
I am not this, I may be in this so shut up, I may be in this but I am not this, I don’t know who I’m preaching to, you may be in it but you are not dead, don’t let the devil convince you, just because of a temporary circumstance that you forget who you really are. You might be in a storm right now, you might be suffering right now, you might be broke right now but don’t believe it.
Tell the devil you took my clothes and you took my name but you did not take my memory, I still remember who I am, number two remember this that my memories define my identity and you can take my clothes but it wasn’t in my clothes and you can take my bracelets it’s not in my bracelets and you can change my name and cut my hair but you cannot take my identity because I still remember who I am.
The last thing I told my youngest son when I took him off to college, I hauled it out the window said hey boy, don’t you forget who you are, I want to tell this church, i don’t care how long the pandemic lasts, I don’t care how much we go through, I don’t care how tough it gets, I don’t care how much they fight in Washington, hey don’t you forget who you are.
Hold on to your memories, there’s not a person in this room that God didn’t do something in your life as evidence to you that he is God over every circumstance in your life, don’t you get in this storm and forget what he taught you.
