Hello and thanks for stopping by this Friday edition of Destin for victory with pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor at destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California, just a few moments to share his message, purpose prevails, but first pastor. Paul joins me from a studio in California pastor were coming up on a presidential election. I know you're not can it tell us who to vote for but would you share some words of wisdom for those listening on how we can prepare our hearts in advance of exercising her right to vote. Yeah, I'm happy to do that.

I think the key truths to following Jesus are reminding ourselves that elections don't change what we are called to do and how we are called to live here is one of the things I think we need to keep in mind, and I grew up on the old hymns of the church I grew up in a church where we sang gospel and have fun songs we sang hymns and anthems a lot right and so I love the him and I'm thinking about it now. In answer to your question. My hope is built on nothing less. But Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name on Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand and come January 20 of next year. Whether you're happy about who's been sworn in that day or whether for you. It's a day of sackcloth and ashes. Fact of the matter is I think you need to make sure that your hope lies firmly and solely in Jesus Christ. It can never be in the White House, it can never be in a party, it can never be in Congress.

It can even be in the decisions made in the Supreme Court.

It has to remain in Christ all other ground is sinking sand and I think if our listeners put their hope in Jesus Christ, then we will continue looking to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith. Psalm 20 verse seven some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God, thanks for those words of wisdom. Pastor Paul God is going to get you and me where he wants us to be. No matter what it takes to tell you that you're going to have to develop a new attitude about your detractors about your enemies don't want to have to understand that they will because you are called according to his purpose and they were for God.

God loves you so much, he will use any means necessary to help you fulfill your purpose. Circumstances, family, friends, even your enemies today on Destin for victory pastor Paul Shepherd talks about your purpose in Christ and the methods God will use to direct your path when you begin to view your enemies as agents of God, knowing that he is in control of even those people who seek to do you harm to gain a new perspective in the way God enables you to fulfill your high calling in Christ Jesus now is pastor Paul.

Today's Destin for victory message purpose prevails Joseph in the Old Testament found out that his own brothers hated him all hated him because it always reasons and and what have you little dynamics little undercurrent but not the real deal is the bottom line that God needed him to hate him enough to get them out of town so we use family circumstances. The fact that Joseph's father Jacob.

Joe said more than his son's dysfunctional families are not New York is love to his son Joseph more than the older boys open and obvious. Joseph, the field working Joseph younger than all of them supervising 37 what you see will will have a job brothers and they hated God said you know what their hatred isn't deep enough isn't strong enough, have to deepen it. So God gave the boy to dream dreams meant that one day he would be superior and his family would take him was so so he actually thought they would be happy shortly.

People will be me during all bowing down the city because of his dreams. So one day he came out that you and said they saw them coming less killing this to him once and for all and then you know God's providence is so amazing. Your enemies are given limitations to rejoice in that you wear what they can only go so far away you cannot lose his life that we can't. You can't shed innocent blood. God is in control hatred from the beginning of history so you know the story what to do without killing them. Some merchants down the road to Egypt little money sell him, he'll be a slave in another country will never see him again and we have will change 20 shekels of silver.

They selling they don't know what but all was arranged.

They were traveling to Egypt. Your enemies, not only you you you can't develop you cannot develop you you when you get too much to put God's to get you when Joseph was in Canaan little teenage boy in Canaan was developed.

He had no work ethic. He was, he didn't understand how life really work because everything was handed to use it for my purpose like that so listening to Egypt where he learned how to work because he had no other alternative is a slave there. He had to earn his keep bear. He had to let God develop him from the simple for you that you see in Genesis 39 it says the Lord was with Joseph in some areas of your life and mine all the lazy person learn how to work with.

You can take a mean person and teach them how to be kind, patient person and teach them how to put up with something they can take somebody conversation with and he'll teach you how to put up with people develop you when you see Joseph.

Joseph is Catholic.

He knows how to deal with people.

He's a great effective leader. Even in jail lead people down bilingual complement lease. I will let you know development and growth will occur when we get where God wants us to be.

Also, stop fearing your enemies. Don't fear the people who hate you because they can do nothing except God here starting with your enemies, himself, is to be feared. Since, but he is not to be feared isn't to be feared. They don't deserve the time and attention to will be right back with more of today's Destin for victory message pastor Paul Shepherd.
