Tim told the viewers:
“Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly. So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time.”
Additionally, Tim encouraged, “You never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where — if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough’ — then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life.”
“Maybe that is the next step for you, maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year. But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us.”
He ended with a reminder to trust God’s great love and to entrust the unknown future to Him. Knowing God’s character and “how much He loves us” will get us through the tough times.
This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But, you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly! pic.twitter.com/ldTu5acIDO

An Error, Twitter Claims
Later, Twitter told The Blaze that marking the video as a sensitive content was an error.
“The Tweet … was flagged as potentially sensitive media in error. It has been corrected,” the company said.
According to FOX NEWS, “It wasn’t clear what part of the video was particularly sensitive to trigger the warning.”
