When you have a stumbling point.

When you have one of our failures. The Bible says the righteous fall but they're not utterly cast got a picture backup and he'll say not going to try again and let my grace be sufficient for you on the night before Jesus died for you.

He prayed for you hello and welcome to Destin for victory with pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor at destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California. Yesterday's program pastor Paul began to examine Christ's prayer for us in the garden of Gethsemane will find that message, as well as any pastor Paul's recent messages on demand that pastor that's pastor to learn more about the ministry. Contact us for prayer or make a safe and secure donation online as you follow along today.

Keep this in mind, in the moments living up to his arrest, Jesus took the time to pray specifically for you and me and he did so in three specific ways so Nellis join Pastor Paul for today's teaching Jesus prayer for you, let somebody know when you serve a God opaque and he'll carry you where you so insecure you not pray like you like you going to church like you to drop off the ministry same window. I want to let you know, God says, I still got you covered some of the season doing your thing is letting trouble drive you to God you let it drive you away from God. It took a little strike, throughout his troubles in my life and you struck will sign and you picketed God to explain everything to me how to stand out here and want to know God is not like us.

God not been for you. You will strike somebody is not like that he covers. Jesus prayed that we would be protected when the enemy will try to pick us all a tough time.

He prayed that we be protected that we would be protected and part of that would be that God would keep us in peace. That would take a tough time that you know God's promise to peace. 26 and three says I will keep him in whose mind is stayed on him and God promised to peace when you're going through tough times, God will protect you, protect your heart and mind by giving you peace that will pass understanding that you didn't even understand yourself to be going quite easy now while I am not losing my mind is because of God's keeping he'll keep you in peace will be a strange place where you set out to be in turmoil here, but somehow I'm being Now understand this piece is conditional and said whose mind is all gone walk with you as close as I can insecure at times, God protects me that you're looking. I thank you that your separate staff in your hand told you before, on Psalm 23 you know where it says staff they comfort me has both a bit off the jackals and everything that drive accommodates the shape, but the staff is not only for the walking of the shepherd.

The staff is for the protection of the shape because she wandered off from the flock in a golf ball somewhere when you go over here somewhere not going to church like you supposed to, and next thing you know, that wandered off somewhere in the corner of your life and you get caught in the thicket. The shepherd knows that the sheep will often wander off but he can find them because they wanted up again and somewhere call the following know and he'll get that staff have occurred. You know and put it around the neck and pull him away from that dangerous place and bring them back in the safe. Let me tell you something he'll keep you, he'll keep you, he'll keep you in peace.

I want to let someone know that you can afford to let the enemy rob you of your peace. Jesus pray that your peace would stay intact even when your life is going through changes what that you don't understand. John said I will give you peace.

Stay close to me. I will give you. I love the language of flip is for. It says it will guard your heart and mind. The piece will stand there like a soldier and just because you're going through trouble trouble and have to get inside of you and the trouble is coming, but the trouble will only go so far because when it gets to your heart and your mind.

If you're just letting God be God in your life. Peace will stand there is a no no you can't pass to get into the heart need to get into his easy, but the peaceful said no not here Jesus has provided for us. He has protected us and he has given us his peace. Not only is he giving us that keeping powerful peace, but he will keep you from falling want you to have a fall from your walk with God. He wants you to experience that. That would make you so ashamed until you walk away from the what God has a Keeping Power Pl. in Scripture in June.

Verse 24 was closing the book he says that him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy to the only God our Savior be glory and majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore. Amen.

CSS was able to keep her from falling from falling. It's not you it's the Lord all that would utterly in your walk with God saying to one who will keep you from making absolutely no mistakes in your life. Scripture say the Scripture is a very clear that we are human and as humans we have those times of faltering and if you don't believe me just look at Scriptures like Psalm 3724 that says all the righteous fall day will not utterly be cast down.

What that means. If you are going to stumble. You might as well admit it is when you're not going to measure up to fall short of God's plan for your life times when you're going to surprise yourself. You will think you are further down the road but that's because you don't realize that unless you're In the God's power every day, there are some things about you that will surprise you. And so their time to get the feeling cocky you live your life on cruise control meeting today and I don't care how old you are a you will need the power of the spirit on the protection, to hold you to keep you steady and you will have those moments of faltering stumbling but I'm so glad in Christ. Failures are written in pencil in Christ is written in pencil and ink because it called according the purpose you have never made a mistake. That'll cost you your entire walk with God. That will be up in your life That Christ Is Written in Pencil and the Reason Lies Written in Pencil, All from That. So I'm Glad You Went through It. Jesse Royce Is Not a Waste of Good and so Is Properly and It Does Look like a Mess That God for Bid When You on the Chalkboard.

One Thing I Couldn't Take What People Write on the Board and Then They Would Erase but They Won the Race at All, Just Get All That Used To Be There.

When Metal Breaks at a Certain Point. If You Weld It Correctly It Will Take to the Right and to the Left, but It Won't Break There Because If You Put It Together Right Instead of Leaving Weakness and Bottle Building.

There You Will Actually Create a Bond Was Stronger Than the Original, Something God Knows How to Do That in Your Life so That When You Have a Stumbling Point. When You Have One of Those Power Failure. The Bible Says the Righteous Fall but They're Not Utterly Cast Got a Picture Backup and He'll Say Not Going to Try Again and Let My Grace Be Sufficient for You Get Tired and I Get Tired of the Experience of Being a Spiritual Yo-Yo You Get to Get up and down and Say Lord I'm Ready Now for You to Bring Some Stability in the Get Tired of the Same Problems in Your Marriage That You Are Contributing to the Same Old Thing. Don't You Know Insanity Is Doing the Same Thing and Expecting Different Results.

Same Arguments Say Five Trouble Would You Help Me Go to a Level of Grace That Will Surprise My Spouse Place Where They Are Used To Me Going off about Now and so Is All Right but Would've Really Been Added to Let Me All Right about All the Bad the Rest of the Week Freezing Them out. In Jesus Name. I'm Not Talking about Keep Me Keep Going in the Same Trap People by the Same Thing Keep on Nagging about the Same Thing Called Us to Live in This Kind of Turmoil and Your Spouse Is and Plan for Change. You Can Change Your Marriage by Getting before God and Changing Your Cell and Letting the Lord Take You to a New Level of Stability and so We Got a Letter That He Will Keep Us from Falling into the Same Old Pit the Same Old Track, He Will Keep You from Falling and Have Your Fall You'll Make Sure That That Failure Is Written in Pencil Because Jesus Prayed for Protection That We Be Protected from the Enemy and He Prayed, Not Only for Protection but He Prayed That God Would Bring Us the Ability into Our Life and He Use the Word Here Sanctified Fall Protection and He Prayed Secularly for Our Sanctification. Now You Might Think Well I Will Know That Word That's What That's a Tough Word but I Submit to You That Many of Us Know What Sanctified Means Even If We Don't Know We Know What Sanctified Me Just a Moment. Many of You Have Given This Illustration before Limited to Those Who Have Not Heard It Many of You Grew up in a Home Where Your Mother Had Some China That Was Put up in a Certain Place and They Had a China Cabinet, but Not in a Cabinet. It Was Put Away in a Certain Place and You and the Family Knew That This Was Not Ordinary Use and from School Was Going to Where the Dishes Are. There Is No Dish Washed and Then You Go to the China Cabinet and Grab a Piece of Your Mother's China and Put Your Sandwich on You Didn't Do That If Your Mother Saw You Eating an Ordinary Sandwich School Which Hurts She Would Lose the Whole Thing All You Didn't Do That Put up Because It Was Sanctified Means, Sanctified Means and Set up Our Not Just Going to Clean Ordinary Dishes Never Use the Five Means and Put up Set Aside Not Your Ordinary, Not Your Typical Not Every Day. Not A Lot Of the Mail so When Nothing Is Sanctified Is Consecrated for Specific Purpose.

Well Now, with That in Mind, Look at What Jesus Said Here and Let Me Just Begin to Introduce This Concept and How Pick It up Later.

He Says Here in This Passage Prayer in Verse 15.

It Is Not That You Take Them Out Of the World, but That You Protect Them from the Evil One. Now Watch This, Not the World, Even As I Am Not a Bit Sanctified Them by Your Truth.

Your Word Is Truth. Jesus Said, Now They're Not More World, but They're Not the World. Your Problem Is Not That You Live in a Wicked World What You Need to Do Is Say Father I Need to Experience What Jesus Prayed for, Which Is That You Will Sanctify Me. Don't Take Me Out Of the World Take the World Out Of God in This World and You Need Me to Represent You until I Have Been Calling Them Consecrated for Your Specific Purpose. Let Me Tell You Something, My Friend. God Wants to Sanctify Each of Our Hearts and See Them As Bankers or Places You Think You Think You Live in Indeed We Do. But the Problem Isn't the Wickedness around Us. The Problem Is We Got a Consecrate until the Wickedness That Has Been Cleansed. Let Me Illustrate It. If You Pull a Swimming Pool or Notion for That Matter. The Problem Is and How Much Water Is around You. The Problem Only Comes in the Water That Surrounds You Getting Back and Swam in a Sea As Long As I Know How to Keep the Sea Out Of Me, All You Guys Swimming All at Once. I Know How to Be in the Water but Not Let the Water Be in You That When You Swim, Remember to Swim and They Had Us in the Shallow Water Because I Was but They Said No. You Have To Learn How to Swim. You Have To Learn How to Move More in the Water and You Will Find That You Are Very Safe and I Remember Finally Learning How to Swim Meet in the Security I Keep Me in Because I Need to Know That Is All I Can Plant My Feet and Stand up in My Face As above the Water.

Remember That You Needed to Know That You Can Swim until You Move That That Was a Safety There Was the Safety of Being in Shallow Water. After They Taught Us How to Swim. I Remember the Day of a Particular Exam Where I Had to Swim across the Pool at the DP Because What They Were Trying to Do Was to Get Me to Realize You Have Learned How to Maneuver Now. So the Issue Is Not Where You Have To Be in the Shallow Water Anymore Because You How to Crawl across the Pool down in the Shadow Yes on the Way, You Can Cross the Water, but in My Mind Saying Yeah, but What Is Something That Nothing Is Going to Happen. You Have Learned How to Swim. You Have the Ability Now to Have a Date in Deep Water until I Was Forced to Try to Class and I Was Immigrating and I Was Trying to Negotiate for Another Way and They Said If You Want to Get a Good You Will Swim from Here to There in the Water I Discovered When I Had to That.

What I Learned Me in Transverse Thing That Pull While I Was Swimming. I Was Thinking Will Is One. I Couldn't Stand up.

I Try Will and in My Mind What You Know What His Son Goes Wrong and I Made It Safely Because I Have Learned How to Be in the Water without the Water Getting in Me. I Will Let You Know Some of You in Deep Water Right Now in Your Life, You're in Deep Places in Palestine. But Jesus Prayed Number One for Your Protection and Then Secondly He Prayed for Your Sanctification.

He Prayed That the Trouble That Surrounds You Would Not Get in You That the Term Wall That Surrounds You Would Not Get in You That the Only Nest That Tells You What You Said. I've Called You I've Separated You under Myself and I Now Have a Purpose for You That If You Will Tap into My Grace and Power. I Will Bring It to Pass in Your Life, My Friend. I Want to Let You Know. Jesus Prayed for Your Protection. Jesus Prayed for Your Sanctification That You Would Become the Person That He's Destined You to Be. I Want to Let Someone Know Who Is Tired of Falling Tired of Going to the Same Old Trouble That There Is a Stability That Is Available to You in Christ. You Don't Have To Keep Going to the Same Changes. God Will Bring You to a Place Where You Find Him Making You Steadfast and Unmovable, Always Abounding in the Work of the Trust Him That He's Begun a Good Work and He'll Bring When You Fall down Jesus Will Pick You up, You Fall to Pieces. Jesus Will Gather Them up in Grace and Put Them Back Together Stronger Than They Were before. Nothing Can Separate You from His Love, Not Even Your Own Mistakes You Know Many of Us Put Some Real Thought into What We Name Our Children, Our Businesses, Even Our Pets.
