We all have blind spots and often takes someone to help us see them a little more clearly.

Just a few moments Pastor Paul ship reminds us why so important to surround ourselves with trusted godly people in his message lessons from the battlefield, but before he starts.

He joins me now from a studio in California pastor last month. You and I talked a little bit about your mom. Father's Day weekend is now upon us, and I thought it would be great if you would take a moment and honor your dad.

I've heard you talk about him in the passages look for listeners to hear your heart about your dad absolutely thanks for bringing it up Wayne. My dad meant so much to me. I was blessed to be raised by a man who got saved in his teens. He had a godly mother who raised him and his siblings and she ended up having 10 children on nine of whom survived and she raised them in shirt.

She had a man who didn't get saved until he was in his 80s, but she learned how to let her light shine and she raised my dad.

She told him later when I was pregnant with you. I laid my hands on my belly and I said, Lord, I want you to make a preacher out of this one, and he was the only preacher of the nine siblings that she had and he preached the gospel faithfully raised his five children in the church along with of course my mom and I love the legacy and I think of him often. He died in 2008 as an 81-year-old man, but he was such a blessing to not only to me but to thousands of people as he shared the gospel and I thank God this month in particular for the legacy of a godly father. Well when I hear you talk about how your father raised you in the church. I'm reminded of Proverbs 22 verse six train up your children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it. Thanks for sharing those memories with us. Pastor Paul and for teaching us the word of God the way he did for you.

Again, the addresses Destin for victory. Box 1767, Fremont, CA 94538 have you anything you'd like to have business circle and only now are bunch of cool flatter you and the first key to overcoming your giants is admitting you have them, and sometimes it takes someone else to point them out today on Destin for victory. Pastor Paul talks about our blind spots. Areas of weakness that we simply cannot see without a little help. So now here's Pastor Paul. Today's Destin for victory message lessons from the battlefield. Some of us have a giant of inter-bitterness and a lot of don't know because you've learned to mask it with a smile when you come to Georgia Bible and use values that praise the Lord and people don't think you're better but you live in bitterness you live and resentment you live, when those jealousies and in be in your heart and I'm here to tell you that you cannot overcome what you will not confront so you gotta take a good look at your Goliath. I want to encourage you to take a good look at your life this week in the coming days and say Lord put yourself on the examining table and say Lord I want you to search me and try me and help me to get in touch with myself. Not only do it in prayer, but by some folk who loved you enough to tell you the truth. Some people that she was about euro surround themselves with folk who only tell you what you already want to hear.

You will never grow that way all you do is spend your time talking about who tell you what that committed to making you feel good. They don't love you right because Proverbs says that people are but what about friend when a friend tells you the truth they're not trying to hurt you in bed trying to heal you, but they know that just like a surgeon. Sometimes you have to cut a deal and some you all soon as somebody says something cutting, no matter how gentle the matter how much anesthesia they used. You want a friend you had tell him something that's pleasant to hear Delano anesthesia with all just too rough possible somebody so you know what you got a real problem and you going to jump right in telling what it is and you just lay them flat. Not all these and you know you my boy right you know you my girl that you know is me and you or Pam a compliment. Say something nice to NS anesthesia and they said but that's something I really can't think because I love you so much. You're probably not aware of it. I really need to share with you and then you're going to let me take some if you got people who love you that much.

You got a valuable relationship rejected all so we all have body whoever told you anything you didn't like you have dismissed them from your inner circle. And only circle now are bunch of cool flatter you and you and I'm here to tell you, God has you in a place now where he is saying. I'm about to make a champion out of you. I've got big plans for your life but you can't carry around these giants in your life. So I'm some folk around you on your ministry team and your family who will tell you about yourself in love and not all that loving learn to take it even when it came in a rough package… I once went say something to me.

I really need to hear, but I like the way they said it and so I wanted to dismiss it on the basis of my rejection of their approach, and the Holy Spirit said, but was it true but not. He said that's my point. You have to learn to love true when you got delivered to some some got a raise up your kids the truth on agile children way to get all grown, one can see you better than you can see your self. The plan money that wasn't true, and say that you will I'm here to tell you guys trying to grow you, but you gotta recognize and become familiar with the enemies you cannot defeat what you will not confront so you gotta become aware of Satan's devices to become aware of your own personal tendencies that militate against the will of God in your life and in this way you can learn to wage successful warfare become familiar with the enemy become familiar with how the enemy moves in your life. He has a modus operandi. He has a method of operation with the devil about your own flesh. There are some patterns you can see if you will pay attention. The enemies will lie with the devil will always lie because if they can get you to buy can take you out of the will of God. So John 844 tells us Jesus said the devil is the father of lies. So you have to make a decision that you are going to be sensitive when you hear something that is inconsistent with God rejected out of hand. The Bible said the one place by the truth and don't sell it every place you see the truth by what the price is by by Wesley truth. All I need more true by the bargain-basement sale by except that by that message. I wasn't crazy about it but he was right by. I don't appreciate people to buy the truth, and then don't sell out when you own the truth and a lot comes along trying to replace itself what we do an even exchange. No I don't sell the truth. I keep the truth because I needed the true Jesus, it will set me free and sold by the truth and sell it not make sure since you have a commitment to truth when you're warfare. Make sure that the voices speaking in your life are voices of truth. Make sure you screen what you get.

According to the truth of God's word I tell you we live in an opinion. They all making DVDs and CDs.

They all have talk shows and radio so all the question is how many are speaking true and so what you have to do is compare it to the truth of God's eternal will be right back with more of today's destined for victory message from Pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California.

Remember you can always listen to the program on that's Pastor

We'll find a host of great resources that are online store wise theologian once said God's word is the only source of absolute truth.

Everything else is commentary from the early life of King David Pastor Paul with the rest of today's message lessons from the battlefield Bible is God's eternal word no on the planet like the Bible in the category with the writings of Confucius with anybody else in that category is not politically correct but it just happens to be true. The Bible is the only universe that was written by over 40 authors on three different continent in three different languages. A 1500 year with one another, but when it comes together.

It reads like God plan that we will help with himself up and came down from 42 generations and came into this while you save me on the planet.

When you know what I do is expose myself to all the teaching and that way I get a cross-section. That way you get a mess.

I'm sold out.

I'm standing on this word because he will pass away, but this word shall stand forever and you gotta make up in your mind. I'm standing on the word of God is God that holds up the buried planet on which we live, and so I am sold out to the word of God and then you learn the screen.

All these voices by some experts who have all knowledge and all the stuff that they've done because I got the grades that we may have truth.

Some people have more degrees in temperature.

That's no sign that you got a degree that's a sign that you got a lot of that you have. Just because you have a gotta check it out about a book you want, talk shows, check them out about a book when you check out about about the latest ideas.

Check it out about about the preacher check them out about a book we got all the preachers now have a commitment to the Bible said it would happen. Paul said the time is coming, talking to his son. He told him preach the word in season and out of season.

Let me present when is popular in the people enjoy loving season marvelous getting the seating area in season. But he said don't preach it out of season.

That means please deposit I really need to mind his business. Nobody had asked him to go in that area out of season report rebuke amazes me when the leaders in the church and fashion we can just smile and whenever insane your wall. I love you but you're wrong. Let's get you right so you can be in the will of God, and it is amazing that sometimes people will persecute you for calling sin rather than persecute the Senate. Other people but the Bible says report, rebuke, and exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine. And then he said for the time is coming when people will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. It means people want to hear certain things and so they'll go find a teacher who will teach them what they want to hear come to tell you when you sit on a minister like this when you come to this church. When you listen to the CD. The broadcast I guarantee you won't be mad and guess what, that's a good thing. I have the preacher, but sometimes I get mad at myself call the Holy Spirit and CD want to go get yourself a copy of the CD and listen to a real lot in the struggle which you speak all this together so we got a screen everything by the book don't just check it out on the bestseller list.

Check it out by the book. Don't just take it because it preacher said check them out and that way you can live according to truth because the enemy loves floating lies loves tempting. At moments of weakness. Learn to self learn when you're in moments of vulnerability, walk in victory want usually exploits you PCs those times and seasons in your life, and he looks strategically, ways to sneak up behind you always know their them in front of you.

Meanwhile you will notice someone coming up behind and guess what happens in your life and mine and you have to you have to be prepared to deal you have to be watchful. You can't just look straight ahead.

Around you know you're going through a season of weakness.

You have to watch it, you have to be careful season where if you're single, sexually frustrated with your marriage and your fuss and fight and not get along and not having to benevolence again. James is in first Corinthians 7 that says render under your spouse to benevolence.

I love changing when I first got married without the baby is now running the children out all right. I'm sorry season of frustration with your single have to be careful just meet and greet any nobody is trying to take advantage of this okay have low frustration and heel float just the right person along you in the gym and here they come on the stair master next to you and smile don't know but strategically trying to work something and then you look over.

Sometimes in order to stay in the will of God.

You got to get their master go somewhere and just plain old God, you come before you and I don't do anything you you you and they don't do a thing for you. Somebody taken the shot.
