First be a good follower listing to Destin for victory with Pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California were always glad to have you with us today we return to the life of David young man who proved himself willing to learn.

Knowing he was Israel's future king he chose to serve in the court of Israel's present story continues.

Next, stay right here or stop by Pastor Paul.not to listen on demand. That's Pastor now here is Pastor Paul. Today's Destin for victory message lessons from the past for you. If you are a student, your job is not to pass. Your job is to learn.

We gotta get the business of banking school is about passing school about about you becoming about you obtaining knowledge that you get them to grade into character to become a person with above your peers. I want to challenge you. That will be some areas where you are just about trade but be something where you are a master of long we have misquoted that for years people say Jack of all trades master of none. That was not the original quote was about to be a jack of all trades and master nothing at all. God has created you the ability to master something so the original quote was master Jack of all trades master of one. The idea being I'm pretty good at a lot of things but there's some area that God is enabled me to excel in to tell you I'm looking for you as a child of God to take on this task.

Letting God bring you into excellent students are not just the pants know you might not graduate about all of your subject matter. You might not be Lord sumo common-law law, there might be some areas where you just thank you Lord thank you Lord I got out of there by the grace of God will never be back again. Don't be some areas where you excel, you go to school to learn because God wants you to use a don't know what that God wants you to all so that you marry that with integrity and diligence in you represent righteousness when you go to court and you work and work as unto the Lord, and God will use you and master want an attorney. However, Chris and I got a Christian I know not every Christian in business. If you want to hire some that when they got me out like next time, give me a heathen don't know what I want to bring Jesus and try to make it all better, you know Jesus will bless your mass, you have to give them you want to know your stuff like my business hanging in the balance. I need you to represent me. I need you to get me justice when I have been wronged or whatever the case might be a problem. I don't need you somewhere on you know we give it a shot.

All you have to retainer in good faith you to get some position position, no body know you.I diligence and their knowledge to discipline Dr. stable life and then flipping through books called the and graduated.

Thank you Lottie you set up on the AC no. I wasn't sure if you got my doc you need to marry diligence to your destiny. You need to give God a good return on his investment.

Gotta develop your strongest gifts. David took the time and learned what he needed to learn. Now what does that mean that means not only are you going to practice not only are you going to work on it but you expose yourself to greatness.

Understand this expose your principal grade in part by dedicated yourself to God play dedicate your cell you must learn often by those who already know there's no magic to this thing. If you want to get better at something fun trying to be a success. Take swimming find somebody who know what they're doing.

Find someone who can teach you something and ask God to give you the insight and the ability to master long before I was preaching on a national platform and teaching.

I was learning, playing fasting, reading and learning how to communicate it clearly as I sat on the lives of people who know how to communicate the word of God, the power of God expose myself to people made me feel still doing to this day the people who make me feel awfully inferior.

I went to dinner a few weeks ago with a very prominent preacher, just about everybody would know his name.

If I called his dinner, and by the time I finish bleeding from his wisdom, let my sociopath is left that room souls because I've been in the presence of someone who had a level of brilliance that if I allow myself it would intimidate me but I said Lord rather than be intimidated. I'm just going to get up close. My daddy taught me when you find somebody in the Godhead is on instead of being jealous close to said because when all the drops will follow you and some also so busy and full that you don't appreciate what God will teach you through others, so sometimes I feel like the Kentucky Derby what you said. You must be don't you know that working against him because I thought he could win. I just figured the exposure would do him a world of good. Let me tell you, you need to expose yourself to persons who know what you don't know, so that God can then take the discipline married to the player and the integrity and character development and the Lord can bless you and cause you to prosper. The Scripture is very plain that the Lord will give you gifts and if you will exercise those gifts as a proverb that says your gifts will make room for you and bring you before great men exercise your gifts. You gotta develop your gifts because God will open doors in your life for your gifting site.

I need a job. But what are you good at. Well I'm trying to figure it out.

When asked why nobody is offering you a job you got this job I need to maximize because looking to just develop somebody when somebody said no I get a job at the church. They love God and love people in a compassionate all that's true.

We love God we love people with combat you all know what you doing I'm not hiring you say as you will be right back with more of today's destined for victory message from Pastor Paul Sheppard to listen to any Pastor Paul's recent broadcast. Be sure to stop by Pastor anytime to listen on demand. That's Pastor Paul.Pastor Paul joins me in the studio after today's message but first let's rejoin him for the second half of today's message teaching lessons from the pasture.

I'm telling my whole staff tighten up your hiring process as we go to reaching the people God we can. Don't know what they're doing because it is time God gives us the time to develop our gifts and abilities, and I'm here to tell you you want to write the best song you want to write the best book you want to be the best in your discipline so that God can use your gift to open doors for you and to bring you into the presence of those people that he will have you minister to your strongest gifts.

One more lesson from the life of David. I'll let you go. The early life of David, and it is just good at meeting other people's needs.

Now notice what David did hear the Bible says in verse 21 of first Samuel 16, David came to Saul and entered his service, Saul liked him very much because right there. Some of us need to leave this message say Lord, make me more likable.

Help me to be more likable and remember when you pray that God will say okay I will if you work with me let me help you take that edge off. Let me help you develop your people skills, better some of you simply need to ask God to anoint you to smile walking around looking like you were baptized in lemon juice on your speech, and just about everything they say that edge on it. Hello this. The Bible says David was well spoken, not just in terms of his grandma being correct, but his speech was sent talk about speech being the getaway that makes people say something that is so great way to say it, and we need to work on being more like you know we are believers in Jesus Christ.

The Bible says we are to be the salt of the earth. The light of the world. We are not to be the scourge of the earth. We are not to have people see us come in his own no no run for cover. Holy means self represent Jesus.

The Bible says he was safe and of publicans and sinners. Jesus was a friend of people who did live holy and some of us don't know how to be nice.

The people who don't live holy and nice. The people who live holy just mean just inconsiderate.

Some of us are too selfish and self-centered. We haven't learned the two of a servant.

We haven't learned though. After you mentality and some will have to just learn to be nice to discover is just nice to be nice is just nice to be nice to be present to make somebody else's day.

Oh, we look at the numbers around you will read somewhere where pickpocket would be nice to want anything from you but the chance to show you the love of Christ, just to show you that it takes as much energy to be nice to be mean, you might as well just go on and speak to folks be pleasant. The people on the freeway stop this all day California exit start all laying all over sold the magnitude.when California Lane seen such an drive crazy in the say out here.

These freeways just over not getting great is God bless you Saul liked him very much. How well-liked are you on your job. How well-liked are you in your community. How well-liked are you on your block and I'm living communities where people grew up in the days you knew all your neighbors all hung out at one another's houses stood out from the house and talk these days as a happy coincidence when you find a block like that people think right next to at least get you neighbors look like they said, ever lift my hand and wave at you. You got to be kidding, I decided to stop us from waving crazy people about it like you want your job, you invest time in their happiness making their day.

Let me tell you something.

This is the kind of thing that opens doors. Saul liked David that's what you want that woman something about that man. All you need is one the nicest people government that's what they want to see them.

So I bring up your name is liked him very much and it became one of his bears some of you in a position where you can help other people and I'm here to tell you. God wants you to get good at helping and meeting the needs of other people before God blesses you and takes you to your place of prominence that you're envisioning make sure that you're in the business of helping someone else make sure you're in the business of meeting their needs well. He became is all about. You know that means that means that he walked around and he did nothing for the arms of the king okay okay was required and I'm here to tell you there is a blessing in servant hood that our generation is missing because were busy reading books about swimming with sharks and being movers and shakers and we don't understand that in God's economy. God loves the servant heart. God loves people who don't mind taking care of other people's needs. God loves people who will help you just because you need help there's no limit bonus and accept all your knee. Some of us are at a place where will help you if it doesn't inconvenience us.

I'm telling you gobble to take you to a place where you can say I'll help you, even if it doesn't inconvenience me I'll go out of my way to serve the needs of somebody in the name of the Lord, you got understand that there promises attached to that, if you will yourself under the mighty hand of God. The Bible says in due season the Lord will see that and he will exalt you. The motion is coming from the Lord come from people when God sees you have taken gobble say now I'm ready to let you graduate to your next level and I want to let you know that God has called you to develop your strongest gifts. I believe I'm speaking the people who are the world changers on speaking the people that God is called to make a difference in your discipline in your business and government, and entertainment. God has called you to make a righteous difference for him what you've got to marry some diligence and integrity in the development of character expertise and then give God a good return on his investment in your thanks so much for being here for today's destined for victory message lessons from the pasture.
