So the question for you.have a clearer matter then you gotta follow the plan.
God already spoke to what he said when it seems ridiculous and you will see God's results take place. It was one of the worst battle strategies in the history of war. It was also one of the most successful hello and thanks for being here for today's destined for victory with pastor Paul Shepherd wherever you are.
You may be listening. It's always good to have you with us. We may remember the battle of Jericho.
The seven day March the unified shout tumbling down the great stone wall.
Like so many other war stories and Scripture.
The battle of Jericho reminds us that God's ways and thoughts are not our ways and thoughts as you'll see today. Sometimes you be asking to do the ridiculous and if he does have a very good reason for doing so.

Today's destined for victory message developing a lifestyle of faith when your job is. I can know all about justice. I'm not changing somebody's file unjustly.
I can do that work for just God.
I really don't know resource but God is my source want to go to the next level and you haven't gone to the next level of obedience.
We always some of the next level and you have obeyed God on this level you disqualified for the next level until you get in sync you got a stamp and what's right because it is right. God is always on the side of right, so I can't have falsified information. I can't do that, child the most high God, and I got to do things that are just that's burning in me so somebody hear me say here that your job is going to compromise your faith if you're not careful and you want to displease God pleasing your boss boss all day long, but this pleasing God on your job they administer justice do what's right what's right so just gain what was promised after what you what I want to encourage you as we wrap up this theme of faith. I want to encourage the Bible.
Jesus said in John 15. If you buy you what you will. Some of you gotta start praying for what you really want stop shortchanging God what you want to do.
I believe it is on the present result in a high percentage of mysteries dampen your faith in the way you do get that answer lease on the side maybe longer know all about it social now we get to heaven we will have about the mysteries I think soon as we get a matter what ever tear away anything that would bring pain in a memory that would bring pain will be erased.
So I'm saying I don't trip on your mysteries go there only temporary to so what you want to do is believe God what you want and what you need to service this morning. I will not be enrolled in a wheelchair. She walking into the church service.
That is a woman who did not live seven more days calling us all in seven more days and that was June 12. I think it was at the end of August late August. They said she was out here before June 19 morning because we have family came. She said she got out enjoying the blessings something that will keep you all know God with too small it was to anything could happen to God to do stuff about his mind, say wait a minute. That makes sense well because he knows more than we can ask or even imagine. So you want to be among those people who are exercising that level of faith, gaining what was promised is shut the mouths of lions talk about annual court quest of the flames from the three Hebrew boys escaped the edge of the sword and weakness turned to strength and weakness terms. Sampson don't know the Bible. If you see a picture and he got muscled look like he was in a contest with Olympia contest is like that. Like a weakling. No one would've been astounded by his strength and his muscles had muscles he stay in the gym. Sounds like you but I you like that when you know when this comes only when starting the Memory. But God was doing extraordinary through what you realize God everything job done and wanted to know coming from so coming from. It was coming from on high and so he was able to do what could not be explained. You need to believe God for the same thing became powerful in battle foreign armies that would apply to any number of people including Gideon who he may. Women received back their dead raised to life again. Both Old Testament and new we see that happening here is what I want to point out before reps of verse 35 in the middle of verse 35. The scene changes everything will kingdom routing all faith. Thank God for the reward, but verse others were tortured and refused to be released so they might gain a better resurrection some face jeers and flogging. Still others were chained and put in prison. They were stoned, they were sold into. They were put to death by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskin's destitute, persecuted and mistreated. What the comet they didn't have enough faith know the common world was not worthy.

After today's message well is easy to follow Jesus into victory following him in his suffering servant is not greater than his master tells us they persecuted me, they will persecute you as pastor Paul with the rest of today's message developing a lifestyle of faith get shot every J is not designed to be a get out of jail card without Batman Batman what any of this newfangled stuff.
I just don't want to stop on even when they came out all those new Star Wars and all that non-never went. I didn't sense any anointing even in the commercial class.
All the three best they ever made Saul strikes back and talk about old yoga is ugly. Somebody had the same thing with reinvented me corny.
Batman on Saturday morning.
Thomas serial no Batman about the trouble he got himself into something. This is my anti-reverse crazy stuff corny, but I still wanted to see what we try our best to find some in the neighborhood to be like the old Adam West went down to the bottom of masking stuff when so damn got to do it. He chooses to get glory out of the trial of faith.
Sleep well throughout Christian history. There's always been revival where there have been people willing to not only live for God, but to die for people not only willing to rejoice in him but to suffer for him and we got a generation that we have to preach this to because we live in such comfortable environments here in the Western Hemisphere in Christianity here in 21st century America with some comfortable for us that we have to understand where going to go through some trials and even when we go through our worst trials is not going to be as bad as it has been in times past for many others, and that's why we gotta tighten up our accidents.
That's why when we get the buildout of building where we can worship God.
Anytime we want. We dishonor God having done that for people around the past 30 years, was to convene a church like this in their name in jail. But when people hear from they are in there with the victory. Nobody is announcing Christ nobody Sam is not working to serve him because they're not spoiled.
I don't think God is some genie who exists to give them everything that you want him with him being say the grain of the society and Satan happening more and more we are now being persecuted suddenly become more prominent. God I got past the flames were left then right that change in definition change in definition will be one person and you're so you have such a pool would people. If you would just fill in the blank what they want me to have people want to know how progressive you will be progressing about progress past the word of God.the places you go to before we were so Paul said to his son before he got his probably some days after that he went to chopping block and they split his head open and killed him for his manner at all times of faith but at the end of his life. He dies in the trial of faith we have to stop thinking that the reward is always good. Trials always been known know if it's faith generated by faith is all to the glory of God and we want to hear him say well that's what I'm live and forsake us what you got to go through many other things going through elementary school trials going from some serious chess will be insane and you married to somebody in the church.
Look at you funny. In Jesus name just quit so something funny looking rough today when the trial don't think it any less significant than when you get the reward from God, Lord America, but I might go through this in a way that pleases you, pleases you changes will all join may counter joy. Not that you mad joy that you get to pass a test of faith.
I get to show God that I'm not going let these people make me a thermometer. You made me a thermostat. Did you miss that whatever the temperature is great. You just know what you indicate was going on when his hostility in the hospital when you get angry with somebody, to you come back at them, but this use is sometimes I can't be such that I can go with who I am is not what God called me to do your own. I'm not going with this. I'm just let that lay I'm going to tell you straight and then I will wait and see if you want people living on a rolling on this single you want the cookies test drive. Don't know what I'm saying thank you for little test drive by but cannot take it out, yes I drive you home right now. Don't teach you to walk by conviction make a decision by conviction.
