I'm speaking to multiple generations. So someone know what I'm about to say. Others will not. But in the late 70s and early 80s. One of the most popular wedding songs was you light up my life. It was released in 1977 by Debbie Boone as a single became very, very popular and I know some real morning born in 77.

Just trust me when I tell you it was released then and I was a musician, I was planned for all whole bunch of weddings forgot me to play for their wedding to play all day. Love sounds real good and what have you. So I played a lot of weddings and wanted you light up my life lyrics on the glass and put them up.

I once give you just the first verse in the course so many nights sit by my window window for someone to sing the song calls no you know what you sell when you are so case to be so so you need to be no you don't build a crew you can be that you want to go single horse somebody laden man dreams Deep inside me alone in the dark. Now you, because you are right. We all need to be alone that so moment when you you you you you you you were wearing the life alone in the dark waiting on some that come and go into the course, you light up my life. You give me hope: my days and fill my nights with so that's unhealthy who's looking for dark house house. I told you before but you gotta get it. If you bring the light he owns a light bulb managed to bring the light.

She owns a libel, but I see it as most of the time with women if you let somebody bring the light they control your life to get through stealing when the feet just stealing what your body, your self-esteem, no money show on TV. Many women are on the plaintiff side.

I gave him $5000 loan will grievous times. You can see them show up with the same story at a certain point to figure out the money you'd only really made me think so, what are you going to realize what a libel when they get sick and you they will screw like bone and walk out and you back at the window. You finally say honey I can help you with this, you'll still just date not just dating and he come with the same stories I can help you with this one or know I can hook you up. Have you ever heard Sarah so if you keep on them because they stay in the job all all you know you want to pass the goodies I just received about the Hebrew boys all day and talk about your life you will will respect that the cookies are in and tell them not only does he had to put a ring on it.

He had to put a ring on it that he will you would want to get that when we get down there and you start to see what you like. So how's your credit at that point you will get in your car and you leave them where it is you what you want me to drop you off your life ought to be lit up with the love of God, a real relationship with Jesus. You and your right mind was a little man drive you crazy. You made some mistakes, but God has forgiven you. Some of you just because you're single-parent and maybe the child was born before you, we were married. Jesus covered that sentence so thoroughly, and so the Bible says he remembers don't you let Mike you want to be happy.

Now let's rejoin Pastor Paul for the rest of today's message when one door closes minutes out of destiny means the only one who brings a light is Jesus, and if you ever my one day my somebody went down like so that's what y'all just make it brighter together. Psalm 27 so the Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear the Lord is the strength of my life shall not be afraid. I you and your and your attitude. You want to be glad Casey is fine. This special problem all help somebody. Jeremiah 17 verses five and eight of Jeremiah 17 this is what the Lord says first is the one trusting man who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord said, if you like that if you dependent on people you're living under a curse. You've cursed your self by trusting in man what he says he will be like a bush in the wasteland he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched place of the desert in a salt land where no one lives pause there and what happens when you have your trust in people and says that your heart will turn away from me that me when you're trusting in people.

Even if you're saved you're not putting your real trust in God and the people look into circumstance of the work out in your favor instead of trusting in God and as a result it'll turn your heart away from the Lord say people whose hearts have turned away from the Lord wants aspirin like living with him, trusting him every day and it says it will make your car away from the what else he says he is like a bush in wasteland you see prosperity if it came once God blessed you would recommend the blessed cause your heart is not in the right place black. Years ago I loved it on the web is not a practice that I ship came in, but I was at the airport in time but you notice that thing is as true for some people, God tried to blossom over here and they never looked over they install because they were trained on some emails that they had in mind and they miss the blessing. That's what happens when you put your trust in man but look at verse seven. What is the man who trust in the Lord's confidence is in him will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out a switch by the stream does not fear even when the heat comes its leaves always green. It has no reasonable year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. So we don't trust in the Lord.

You don't need anything but him. I got my own source somebody stream I can tap into the streams of living water.

I can have God supply my every need.

I don't need you coming through for me because God I need you to understand that you need to live by faith in him. You don't need these other folk. If God brings a mini like the mayor blessed and that's fine but I don't have to compromise for blessing. I don't have to be rule by a blessing when I have a blessing it doesn't have me come all somebody you know a person is for you not try to control you not to rollover you don't have on unkind demands of you, one call.

You may trust God just like you as a blessing. That's a blessing you want to marry somebody women in the middle of the night. Your hardest is depressed you're going through some of the enemy is wearing you out somebody with you and You two in the morning to pray for me that the enemies attacking my mind trying to keep me that you won't wake up sick father in the name of Jesus agreement that will, in the name of Jesus cast out the spirit of the present came from what you mean, you play bravely also work tomorrow. Soon as you have, you know you can wait for blessing is married, something that came along singing a song in the bad thing about at that point you stuck with them.

That's what you got.

Now ask God for grace to deal with what you got (Dragon some I believe may surpass the this was the blessing that I should again two years ago I was an which will use their grin and muffled metaphors, rich or poor, not got worse. Poor sickness and you wait for death: telling the truth is what I'm doing. So, you realize the Lord is our light, our salvation hymn sing in church they saying my hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus blood and righteousness trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name Christ the solid ground is sinking sand would sink inside you look like you want no same thing when you brothers on the equal opportunity abuser care how cute she is now. If you don't know how to walk in faith and believe God, and intercede for you and encourage you when you're down and stand in faith and pray and believe God, you don't need to do is look so we need to make up our minds that we will get in the stinking thinking we won't get into you light up my life will trust God that his destiny is going to come to pass and look at how it worked out for them. Not only did God bless him know they heard from the first guy he actually made sure that you and I would be blessed by the first guy so you know what you talk about text. Glad you asked the first guy had to say no because God had determined in eternity past that Boaz would say yes when you said yes. He married Ruth. They got together and had a baby. He said he was old but that old baby baby okay grew up, got married his wife name the baby Jesse. Jesse grew up married. His wife had seven children, was named Messiah will come and show that you will find out that something for you so you will know the man said no job, but still got hope in the future whose name we don't even know they just said he called he said no go sweatshirt your closed doors.
