Sometimes, you would be better off circumstantially. If you tell your job tells you detail, but you sound the child and got a lively anybody and get you fired, but you gotta know when some sense of them going away as long as God is on your side. Things are going to work out one way or the other and so God still works miracles today, but all he still works miracles today. We are not guaranteed able to list and positive answer every time we pray that's what I need to help you keep it on the screen for 30 seconds or so, although God still works miracles. The day we are not guaranteed a miraculous and positive answer every time we play, but God promises to give us his grace, please, and strength to overcome the heartbreak and loss. Life sometimes brings you need to stay in that sometimes you get the miracle praise God when you get the miracle testified to it when you get the miracle. But when God's plan does not call when you get that miraculous provision that you expected. Just know God is still committed to you and his commitment is going to manifest by his grace what is grace. Grace means sufficiency, whatever you are going through. Grace is enough of an endowment to get you through it.

Don't be value grace. Grace is then unmerited favor is that, but it is the endowment of financial endowment.

It is an endowment that guarantees you want to get through what you got to get through so you have a situation.

But if God gives your case that grace is going to get to all the way through.

Then the other thing he promises you his peace.

The peace of God. Paul said before that passes understanding what will guard your heart and mind.

I love God will give you peace that will stand guard crazy trying to jump on you, but pieces standing God crazy trying to envelop you, but pieces no I'm not going let that happen to be going through something so you believe I'm lost, how is it that you still stand. God gave you grace. And he gave you peace and the other thing he does is it gives us strength. That's why Paul said to the Ephesians, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power, God will give you the power to through every wall, every mountain, every obstacle, every enemy give you straight to overcome whatever you have to overcome.

And so will let you know it when you don't get the miracle you will get what you mean he's gonna bring you into a better place when he brings you through so look at what happened in David's experience.

Go back to second Samuel 12 now look at verse 18. So baby died and then look at the servant and the servants of David were afraid to tell him that the child was being they said. Indeed, while the child was alive. We spoke to him and he wouldn't hear our voice.

How can we tell them that the child is dead he may do some harm and I guess they figured either he'll harm himself.

He might harm a meeting were here. Verse 19 when David saw that his servants were whispering you know you're safer with talk about you over there whispered data perceived that the child was dead. Therefore David said to his servants is the child in and they said he is the look at verse 20. So David arose came to tell somebody get up. I know it's been tough.

I know it's been difficult. I know you have experience more pain than you imagined you, especially in this season of your life. But I came to tell you, this word comes to say get up rise because things have gone wrong. But God is moving you all realize is what I want to tell you David Rowlands from the ground. Look at this washed and anointed himself and changed his clothes been depressed and get you to take a bath or shower is difficult for your family is going and then just fix the meal while you shower you got to be my God to help us out. Even if you okay but if you're not careful you can get when nothing matters. I came to talk to somebody before I wrap up hallelujah anyhow I came atop somebody that lives, and God still had about Jeremiah 2911. I know the plans I have for you said hello. Do you know and understand the context God's people are in exile in that they cannot function as they would like. And God said, while longer, but after 70 years. He said that's when we get to know the plans I have for you so you are in your 70 years and you will feel the plans because you been hurting in some sort of exile going through some sort of trial or challenge that won't go away.

Some of you have family drama mallards, drama, drama that won't go away. Some of you have a career drama that money drama that will way and you God and God loves you, but just broke this hateful X dealing with contemptuous people.

Whatever the case might be, and God is allowing you to go through it because God will use even those difficult seasons to teach you lessons some lessons you can learn in prosperity all but you learn them in poverty.

This something you can whenever we know what a beautiful morning oh what a beautiful day.

I have a feeling everything is going my way. Some lessons you only learn when you're in heartbreak and loss and God said to Jeremiah after 70 years. I'm bringing yet and I know the plans I have for you. I'm not making it up as I go. I'm a black show and I will bring you out of this thing so I need to tell somebody the Lord says to you. Rise get up, washed up, anoint yourself some oil you actually put some more alone: think about over here finger so we don't have experience that mama to kill myself. Thank you very much. Any changes close to close suggest you go somewhere. Somebody's got to do right. Stop acting like life is ending for you.

Stop put nongreen close tough, but you not about to die, God is not through with you yet sometimes are going through. Mentor. You can even see light at the end of the tunnel like it's so dark in your life but God said to tell you know though is not over. I'm still taking you somewhere and so he changed his clothes and look at this, he went into the house of the Lord, and worshiped hallelujah anyhow just lost his. But God said no I'm still worthy of worship. That's when John was and is no doubt streaming down his face. He said the Lord is to be blessed. I came to tell somebody you will God praise when you're crying you will him worship when it is function of worship sometimes has the be a function of your deep-seated commitment to God and to the fact that he's not finished in your life.

He went into the house of the Lord and he will then looking at. Since then he went to his own house and when he requested it. They said food before him, and he ate.

I need to tell somebody you got to notice yourself. You gotta be prepared because of moving forward. You got act in your own best interest.

That self-pity, that thing that will cause you to say what God is going is not coming up next. The rest of today's message dealing with heartbreak and loss with pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont California. If you've never stop by our website Pastor

I want to pity, but I came to tell you, God said you got a notice yourself because I got plans for you. Both Egypt but you gotta be just you gotta make sure that you put the food and no remember that with Elijah when Elijah had that bad experience. The day after Mount caramel and he got word that Jezebel had put a contract out and he said, Lord, right now, just as trim as sleep. Don't let me wake up wake up in your presence will get me out of here, but he woke up he still leaning against a tree. But God had sent an angel left him some bread and some water in the Lord 60 I'm not going for you put it in your own mouth because you're my servant, and you gotta know I'm not done experience where it looks like somebody is old in the way they don't win this game. No way they don't win this match whatever it is I never get years ago, when Serena Williams was a much younger tennis player. She was just so far behind had dropped set and and was about to drop the second set that I thought would have caused her to be defeated and it was in a major torment.

I don't remember the year she was now maybe 51 all the other part was when game in that set and it would've been done and Serena came back I remember her being interviewed and they said, how did that happen.

She said well I was so far behind I just said to myself when the lease win this game as he won the next one. She's August 5 two when the next 5354. Next thing you know that and she won the whole thing because she didn't give up.

I came to tell somebody you can give up. God is still at work here roles he lost himself anointed himself changes close the food 317, said him right now. This that you've done for the child while he was a live child you get me. He said while the child was alive, I fasted for. I said whether the Lord will be gracious to me that the child may live for you to make your requests known to God Bible tells you that you requested. Feel like I have no right you cannot ask God he's your daddy and say, would you please do this for me. But if the answer comes back, no trust, and he said I did not go through no what God was going to do. He said, but now verse 23, but now he is dead.

Why should I asked all I can tell somebody that relationship is that opportunity is that thing you envision is what might be and so you got to like with that that is a done deal. But here's the good news.

He said since I came back I will go to him and he will return to me, but I'm going to move forward. I'm going live the rest of my life and the Quality Way, David to say and one day when my eyes close and death. I'll be reunited with my baby-boom I came to tell somebody that was beyond what you see there is hope beyond how you feel there is hope beyond what the circumstances are saying to you. Yes, so this opportunity is gone, but God knows if something else you don't even see, so you got a quick about what's not going to change the past be the past. What happened with Adam and Eve lost one son murder so they lost because his brother told him that could've been beat them but the Bible annuals come to a burst that says Adam is doing and again meaning had intimacy and she conceived, and myself a child name Seth meaning God is not on his bed because he's with the Lord now, but what you need to know the Lord has blessed you and you're going to move forward in your life. Tell somebody this time. We all hope renew your strength okay to cry when you need to go ahead and cry and people who try to keep you from morning need to learn. People to read scriptures. There is a time for that, but is another time to just let somebody weep, get it out.

Feel the pain and you can have the ministry since somebody missed what I just said I gotta say that again is a ministry since that people me what you got to say just need you to be there and they have to go through Jesus was in the garden and his heart was breaking because he knew what he was facing and he left some disciples and he took three Peter, James and John. A little farther into the garden of Gethsemane and what did he say he said all I want to do is be here with me. Watch with me stay alive and alert while I go through this you can help me.

You can't preach me on this UK speak it out of existence. We we need to quit it when we modern Christian always trying to speak some out of existence into and out of existence, and you can speak and some will happen no greater joy.

When God gives you think about you is an echo O come all somebody I need to be real you try to speak speak speak speak speak speak when you but God will give you when you come out a winner, winner and you come out with a testimony and God will give you a power so that you can turn around and help somebody else. That's what I've learned some things. But God has now brought me through so that I can take somebody else who needs the same lesson get fluid in your life.

Sometimes way because you haven't been through anything through it, I love it. In the words when you speak it matters the people. People say I really needed you to share what you just said something about God, you can always have some so that's why you gotta have some way because God use you somebody else in their time of need and I want to let you know that you can say hallelujah anyhow. No matter what you go through.

Whether you're being frustrated like Hannah was. Whether you are being labeled like bar Timaeus was whether you are disillusioned like Mary and Martha and Joseph and Joel.

Whether you are like David, you don't get you presented the way you want to match the fact of the matter is God still at work. This go today and get this resolved God's going to get that result and he's going to bring you soul the Lord is to be praise in good times and then when you're happy and when you say God is about praise. Give the Lord some praise right where you are. Rejoice in the Lord always again I say rejoice. The apostle Paul wrote those words from a prison cell. Testament to his complete trust in God and a great reminder to all of us to love and worship God for who he is, not for what he does.
