In the rest of today's message developing lifestyle of things once again is pastor Paul Sheppard goes on to say verses 19 Abraham when God tested him offer Isaac as a sacrifice, he will receive the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son. Even though God had said to him, it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking.

He did receive Isaac back from death. Just comment on that would Isaac is born when Israel's 13.

So when the day comes for Isaac to be weaned from nursing. That was one of their rights of passage one of their times of rejoicing as a culture and that they came for the celebration of the winning meaning that that Isaac is now probably in their culture winning what happened somewhere between two and three years old. Somewhere in there, and so that means that Ishmael is now 15 maybe 60.

He is a teenager who's full of himself and so he looks over and see this baby get notice attention and he mocks teenage friends over at the party and they mocked Isaac and Sarah, who is now about 9293 with her first baby.

She looks over and sees that boy that she wanted a house in the first place, mocking her child that was that. She walked old Abraham is to put him out, but honey I can't because you gave him and his mother to us as part of our in her chair, glad you brought his mother put out to write a history when the discussion was a directive and weights now until years more until Abraham is enjoying his one and only son. That's why that comment is there is one and only single. By this time Ishmael and his mother had been disinherited and you know God is so good that he even loves to hate a horse in the Ishmael's that really only got involved because of our mess. You have any residue of your own mess. God loves you so much and God so wants to use you for his purpose that if he needs to heal make your promised so that you don't have to worry about the consequences of your decision. God had said to Hagar. Bless you and your boys will become a nation himself the son of the promise. He's the son of my love and I will bless you and God weights now to Isaac is getting up some good size you can have great conversations with old dad. Imagine that Abraham was not only Isaac's father is, I have a father, grandfather and great-grandfather already and this boy shows up Genesis chapter 22 read when you get a chance God shows up what you taken to come up on the mountain offer him as a sacrifice one you said through my seed all the nations of the world will be blessed. What did boy God creates another difficulty to see if Abraham understands that walking by faith means you don't focus on the problem this that's an insurmountable problem if he's dead.

How was he going to fulfill what you said what happened. Rather than focus on the problem. He looked at the promise and this writer comments he said to himself that God is going to if he needed to raise him from the day see when you walk by faith. You leave all the problem to God you just walk in the promise problem that's God's will, but you out what you told is not your problem. He made a promise when the promise problem pops up. You get to take that problem and give it straight to God to do this in the season of my life when I'm not focused on doing as well is going back to focusing on the and I dare you to develop a lifestyle of faith where everything to do what I think you talked, I think you act in obedience by faith you give, by faith. You do everything God tells you to do in his word and you do it by and when a problem pops you just handed off to God and wait to see what is going to learn that some of you learn to when you do that, God knows how to pay bills. God knows how to quiet enemies. God knows how to say yes when people say you know God knows how to open the door. No man can shut God knows how to shut a door that you been trying hard to open God knows how to do all kinds of things. If you and I will just learn to stay focused on the promise leave the problem to God and see what he will do in your life. I just want somebody to make up in your mind that by God's grace I am going to develop a lifestyle of faith and among the things it teaches me it teaches me that I have to see my problems through the lens of God's promise. So while other people and while I used to be inclined to focus on the problem. I now grabbed the promise and I look at the problem. Only through the lens of the promise. We start living like that supernatural things will happen when it becomes a lifestyle you have experiences like Elijah had. Remember when Elisha got targeted by the king of error because he was making trouble. He was given words of prophecy and anything is a troublemaker.

Let's go kill him and they surrounded and his servant.

The king's army was all arrayed around waiting for the order to move in and attack, and the servant woke up, open the curtains looked down and saw the problem.

There's an army arrayed against us. He cried out trouble.

Elisha wake up mad God, where Elisha got up and looked the same problem and a smile broke out on his face and the servant said I don't see what's funny we back to. And Elisha said, Lord, open his eyes, and when the Lord opened the servant's eyes. Not only did he say yes we are surrounded but by looking God's promise which God gave them insight on peace all that the king's army was surrounded by the Army of the Lord was still there.

Your problem might still be but I'm going home to my problem say that the problem would be there. He just said. His promise supersedes the problem and when the young man's eyes were open. He sold that there was a host from heaven behind the Army of the King Michael cowboy movie where one guy sister, get your hands up and you get done. But then somehow comes when you get behind your enemies is no use to come up. That's what God did to the king's army got behind what is and you know the story, God blinded them and I'm here to tell you that supernatural things are going to happen in your life as you develop a lifestyle of faith where it doesn't matter what has happened.

It doesn't matter what the doctor was saying it doesn't matter what the bank is saying about that loan you think you absolutely need.

It doesn't matter what your enemies are saying it doesn't matter what the statistics say God is not the God of statistics Lisa by denoting this and let you know how many businesses fail in the first two years, God is not the God of statistics if he gave you the business if that's a promise from him if he's entrusted to you, something he wants you to do for his namesake is called cost a lot of money and you don't need a whole lot of favor and you don't come from.

That's not your business, you focus on the promise. You go put in the business plan you talk to who you think you need to talk to and when they slam the door in your face and discard you is that you know you're wasting your time walk out when Elisha smile on your face saying God real smart, but they will then have your education, but they had. They knew God, I was at a wedding. I performed the wedding yesterday and the couple decided to have their grandmothers read the Scriptures. One the Old Testament when the new and the oldest of the two grandmother.

She was moving very adversely took a long time to get we just waited and I told the audience when you live this long folk just got to wait on and they clapped and understood what I was saying and she finally got there there was a sheet of paper with the New Testament reading other grandmother had written hers out to people and so grandma walked over and she started reading the paper and that's mine sweetie your to do.

Psalm 23 and the older grandmother said oh I only know people. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not make walking with the separate down in green. So namesake with me present my knowing is not goodness me all the days of my life there to receive every promise that he will.

God wants to do things in your life. It may surprise you.

Maybe even take you outside of your comfort zone. Abraham Nola Moses Gideon at one time or another, God took each of these meant uncomfortable places they learn to trust God's promises when everything around them, told them not to.
