Addition of destined for victory with pastor Paul Sheppard. Well, the name of and claimant brand of faith may be popular but is it biblical should we make demands as though God is merely our benefactor, or should we make request to a loving father trusting him to give us only those things that are best for us. Perhaps Jesus answered this question when he taught us to pray the words that I will be done the same phrase he himself made in the garden of Gethsemane on the night before his crucifixion today. Pastor Paul offers a penetrating look at biblical faith stay right here, or download the podcast on that's modify or wherever you get your podcast now here is Pastor Paul. Today's destined for victory message prove God if thankful you when you will have been times when you plant the change you and you want when showing salvation you wanted to make until we really come to understand the love of God and the plan of God will live that though we hope God would just take a moment and in the meantime, we want to do one thing all the way there, but you come to find out God has a plan for your life and only Spirit will convict you and keep pointing you in the right direction and saying this is the way in every now and then we have had those stubborn moments where we set I know the way but I don't feel like walking in it right now, be honest, you had those moments you have all you like you had with your parents as a teenager when they told you when the be in the house you wanted to go to the mall, live beyond for four minute honest you wanted the new good midnight and midnight and you said because you want to go to the plot only renews that okay so you could get out if you said what you know in your heart, which is that I don't midnight what they wanted will be home at midnight and some of you even along the way that this is one of my moments of disobedience I might as well enjoy the whole thing that you came from punishment. Different strokes for different folks, but knew that what in response to that was a spanking bathing house with you about a lipid difference that would make you three come back with bank meeting along with two weeks or four weeks. When you were shut down in the house. So what you when the party going home at 12 all going to be a cell phone but couldn't call you can call him back all your friends you are not now. They had a bit of business day we will better call. They said if you want to understand what your God because God God not only know what motivates disobedience side and God have forgiveness you got a notice so you can do whatever I want with God and beaten God with you know how to deal with you about talking to you and I been showing you my will, in my plan and he'll be sealed to let you know I will like my child, God, you don't have the option of living in a Kahnawake God is going to get with you about make you perfectly visible if he has to be a Christian. Can you sleep at night was God's dealing with you about something you know how much you love sleep you need to get in the will of God. So you get some sleep at night. Hallelujah. Well, I'll God, salvation, forgiveness. He promised that he be with you as you need to know that your God has invested in you some promises. And one of them is that he would be with you. His presence will always remain in your life in the great commission.

We talk a lot about the first part of the commission where Jesus before he left and ascended back to heaven he said go into all the world and preach the gospel, baptizing them in the name of the father son and the Holy Ghost, teaching them to all things whatsoever I have commanded you. But there's another burst and I with you all way even to the end of the age Jesus that I'm sending you want to be difference maker.

I want to tell people about my love life they can get say they will repent and turn to me, salvation, and what I want you to know that wherever you go.

I will be with you going to tell somebody feeling awfully alone in your life.

God promised he would be with you always. Since sensory perception, since God's presence, but you can know because so God is always with you is always upon you the moment when God turns his attention away from his child.

What you're going through your suffering better in your heart, open your mouth in prayer about he knows who he knows what's going on in your life and even been before you get your answers in your breakthroughs and all that I want you to know God is with me, promised he'd always be with us. He promised not to leave us enjoy our you're not alone and we can have those times when we feel awfully alone when people agree with always with the promise to be there for you but we can always do that because human beings sometimes with our own thing and however much we love you. There times when issues trump our desire to help you be people now know that going in well immediately called me no matter how far from the 70s just problem back in some little music about this problem in may call me no matter where you no matter how difficult my name. I'll be back one that you can depend and never worry come in when she was she couldn't sing about your friends can always be there for you and tell you a no Mountain high enough in the valley low enough not enough to keep me from getting to you, but I when you'll be an is a good news.

Although human beings are limited in our ability to be what each other means God. I'm always with you, and we got a bystander. God with him is all the power and grace all the piece all the resources you need to get through what you got to go through. He promised his presence. He promised he would answer prayer is giving you.

God has said Jesus said in John 15 seven me. That's what we've got to get to get to a life that is rooted in a relationship with God by means of domicile dwelling place in me not jumping in the Christian mindset. Being a child of God in Christ and Christ lives in me. If you live in me you he said you can ask what you will and it will be given why can he make such an outstanding promise because when you buy you your motive and your desire and request the sentiment and I want to be God's will and God is able to want a prayer that is offered in his will, and so he said I want to give you the ability to play with power and authority and to affect change in the name of Jesus.

And so he has given us promises with regard to prayer.

He said that we can ask in faith stand in faith and believe it.

So we become people of strong and weak job with all that we can were coming right back with more of today's suggestion for Victor message from Pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California. Remember, this program is always available on that's Pastor

We'll find a host of great resources at her online store. How do you go strong in faith will find out next to the rest of today's message proven once again is Pastor Paul Shepherd that goes wrong in the word of God and then you take God at his word and your trust in the brings were in his will to pass in your life that you got a learn as you grow in faith that faith is loaded in the word of God. Faith comes by hearing. Romans 10 says, and hearing by the word of God. You got to know his work.

Exercise of faith that allows them to claim what you can't do that is designed to get you what you want to get you what God has for you represents the will of God littering the will of God. You have a wealthy relative who you were very close to and they passed on and you are reading of the will. You want to show because we had a good relationship and this person had many many resources will and you want to know because that would be an expression of regarding you, and you want to know that when you pick up your Bible reading the will of God is not to make sure that everything we will exercise faith and trust in him so you want to know his will. You want to become familiar with his work because as you grow in faith, you learn two principles one is you can claim what is not yours. And so you are not so that you will spend time asking I Miss James called asking with the wall multiple asking the wrong thing. You can just claim anything. People who have misguided faith and they just go around trying to claim anything claim that car playing that house.

Well, now you know God has for me because if that's not what God is not a single people 20 really want to get married. Claim in one another. You see somebody in charge that you like and you will see the name playing believe God wants us we would make such a claim, you claim you claim you marriage thing. Well me somewhere to run the country where I would preach my ministry. I speak and claim him and I found out that I've been playing so I would one want to not like I had in convincing her that she had no right that need to sit back and see what he wants and have the ability to respond and so when I'm not getting what doesn't belong to you want to go strong in faith what you want to grow properly in faith, to claim what is not yours.

But here's the other principal you learn. Neither can you claim what you don't know which you which is why you gotta get in the word get before God, so that the word in the Holy Spirit and revealed to you the will of God for your life so you know what to lay claim to, and sometimes you are in a place where you gotten a report whether it's about a physical condition or what it's about your career decision and there's one report or there is a general consensus out there but God says something else. I know people positions to die, but God in prayer told them in some and guess what happened. They live despite the report.

I know people. Somebody said this is not for you but for you properly, but God or danger to preach my word and the preaching his word because God's word about his opinion. Let God be true if it makes a liar out of everybody else so I will let you know that God has a plan and purpose for our lives, and he has given us wonderful promises he promised to temptation. The Bible says patient taken you such as is common to man, but God is faithful to him 13 I'm in the book God is faithful will not to be tempted above that which you can stand but we temptation provide a way of escape, that you might be able to bury.

What that means is that God allows you to go to temptation. Now get to clear the Bible says God doesn't tempt us with our own desires. God never wants to draw you out of his will, but he know when we are drawn by God. God you he says I will not even allow temptation to come your way. There is a built-in so that you can bear. You can know that when you're in the throes of temptation God has given you an escape route because he wants you to succeed God and set us up to fail.

He sets us up to succeed. Now I said in the last message and this bears repeating. Now you got to understand that you cannot board the shop at temptation Mall don't hang on Temptations neighborhood. At temptation Mall with the clearance signs up everything must go.

That's not God's will for you and you don't going and what I so you need to learn to thank God for the promise of escape temptation. He promised John to receive than he that is in the world, he promised you that there would be a good outcome even in negative circumstances it says in Romans 828 and we know that God is at work and he will make sure to bring about good in the lives of those who are called according to his purpose let you know God's major some wonderful promises and the reason why he calls us to play that we know him is because he has resourced us. He has given us the ability to live a life that brings him glory and honor the promises and he said as he closes verse for it is through these promises that you are able to partake of God's divine nature. When the world is that me that means that Christianity is not you trying to be a good person because were done before we started that's the case, Christianity means partaking of God's own nature what it means is, Christ comes to take up your life.

Galatians 227 crucified with Christ. I live yet not I but Christ lives in me and I like that I now live in the place I live by the faith of the son of God to me and gave himself for me.did you catch what Paul said there.

He said Christ is alive in me. In Colossians 127 is quite true that is the hope of glory you have hope because Jesus lives in you. If it was just you and we have no hope. But because Jesus is in the picture and he's in our lives we can partake of God's nature and we control all divine resources that God has brought into our lives want to let you know that God is set you up, not for failure.

But the victory is done it by giving you exceeding very great and precious promises, so that through these you can partake of his divine delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

But remember when you delight yourself in the Lord your desires very well might change. Thanks for joining us for today's message prove it before we wrap up things here on Dustin for victory pastor Paul Sheppard destroy me from the studio California pastors current series Pruitt is proving to be a challenge to those of us who claim to follow Christ, so let me ask you once we begin our relationship with Jesus. Why is it so important for us to develop these godly qualities we been studying together. I think it's because as much as I enjoyed the fire insurance aspect of being saved by that I mean you know he that believes in him will perish in the fires of hell, but will enjoy everlasting life, and as much as I enjoy the fire insurance. The fact is I know from the Scriptures that God has called us to live quality lives here and now while I'm grateful for eternal life. We all need to be concerned about living the abundant life. Jesus said I've come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly. Now you know in these days when we hear abundance.

We tend to think the three C's crib scars and cash, but the reality is abundant life in Scripture doesn't have to do with those things God might bless you with a lot of wonderful toys and gifts and provisions, but the reality is, it is the inequality that gives us abundant life, and that's what this series is all about teaching us to build the character that gives glory to God and will help us be a blessing to people everywhere we go, you know, one of the ways we can be a blessing to others is by sharing the gospel with them, inviting them to accept the gift of God's salvation as well as showing them how to live the abundant Christian life here on earth.
