Faith as a second language on today's destiny for victory coming your way next Pastor Paul Sheppard returns to the story of David and his message lessons from the battlefield. At first he joins me from a studio in California pastor were entering into a very critical time in the life of most ministries is always the case when we get the summer time but this time I think people are ready to breakout you know, the vaccine is more widely distributed vacation rentals or book at a record pace. The world is ready to get out of this quarantine, but there is a concern that ministries like ours don't end up forgotten you speak to that for a moment. Yes sir. Every summer I have that concern us and okay Lord, please help the people to remember that the bills don't stop in the summer time the gospel is definitely free. I'm glad and I'm able to say goal of our donors. You don't have to even think twice about it. When you give to us you're helping us reach others.

Box 1767, Fremont, CA 94538 you talking about in your life. These things are you speaking the language of the language of doubt and unbelief, doubt and unbelief contradict what the word of God say when you're challenged by the Giants in your life, what you say reveals what you're made of.

Whether it's fear or faith or something in between is on the inside will eventually come out. So now to share his message lessons for the battlefield is Pastor Paul and Mark chapter 11 verse 23 Jesus said, have faith in God and faith, faith in God is always counterfeit, believes what the genuine is taught in Scripture and yet a lot of people out here you know you just have to learn to think positive thoughts. They only know Jesus did not live according to the word but they believe in positivity. That's a counterfeit version, not about just having a generally positive outlook in life… Don't worry, be happy about when God says nothing I said as true speak what God says man what God says. That's what I'm going about and see the thought that in Mark 1123 he said, have faith in God when he said say to you, if you speak to that mountain and commanded to be removed and cast into the midst of the sea, and shall not doubt in your heart but believes that those things which you say will come to pass. Jesus said, you will have what you say what he was teaching as a powerful principal about us going out trying to literally move mountains God glory out of that situation in your life standing in your way. That is what God wants to do. All you gotta do is take on it and speak it out of your mouth, and he said no doubt in your heart believe that what God put in your mouth is going to come to pass. He said you have what you say I got a question for you. What are you talking about in your life these days you speaking the language of faith you speak in the language of doubt and unbelief.

They had their own language, doubt and unbelief contradict what the word of God say that a nonbeliever will read a Scripture is yeah but somebody's got to get your butt out of the way, you say, but when God has spoken contradict the God was able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or even the match and you gotta learn to speak the language of faith. Just look at your sub stances look at what God says about him and you say what God said. But you gotta look at right now I don't have the resources in my hand that I need but my God shall supply one of my needs riches in glory, God said whenever you find speaking to your situation.

You gotta repeated. Gotta say, you got a call sign it like babe he said one Scripture, now I'm old seen the righteous forsaken.

I've never seen God's servants, begging bread, meeting God's children lean season valley before you in the presence of your enemies going through the worst thing imaginable and in the midst of this circumstance, we hear Job say I know that my Redeemer liveth and one day he's going to stand and I'm going to be with him will be changed going to see the salvation of my God. Learn to say what God says about what's going on in your life. You gotta speak the language of faith and victory before you experience it. I love that Caleb did that generations before David Caleb did that you remember when the 12 spies went over to spy out the land of Canaan. Moses sent them over to try to encourage the people sent 12 spies to go check it out and come back bring a report of the 12 spies and went over them came back with a negative report and they came back saying yeah it's a wonderful place yeah I mean it's great that we brought back a sample of the grapes. They brought back so large to men had to carry a bind of grapes and they said is wonderful over there use that faith killing word there Giants over the narrow walled cities over the and we can't do anything about them like they say compare that old. We look like grasshoppers looking at site Caleb. In Numbers chapter 13 the Bible says he silenced the people, and then he said we should go once and possess the land. We can only do it all see the same thing they saw and come back with a very different report. I'll tell you why because Caleb wasn't focused on the giants in the walled cities. Caleb said about the land. What God said about what God said, I have given it to you. We call the reason we got the land God promised God. What makes you think about the Giants and the city God when he told us wait wait wait as long cities over there soon.

I'm sorry. When something goes godlike.

The against himself when it's too easy. I think you going to frankly just too easy, difficult to see what they would do about it and the chance that we can go both people are strong enough, they'll kick us out of the killer. Caleb said we ought to go right now. I'll know why we haven't beaten about it. We on a goal right now.

We can certainly do it and I'm here to tell you when you learn to declare the big three in advance of experiencing the victory you will see God move in a mighty way in your life so you got the victory before you experience at number six.

Get comfortable with the way God uses you look at verse 38. The Bible says after Saul has finally decided at the end of verse 37 okay David you're right I'm gonna let you go.

And may the Lord be with you when the king came fine anybody in his whole army to go face the giant and he gotta let a little boy go and Saul says well go. Lord be with you.

30. Saul dressed David in his own tunic and a bronze helmet on his David fastened on his sword over the tunic and shrine walking around because he was not used to it. I cannot go with these. He said to Saul, because I'm not used to them, so he took them all.

I come to tell somebody you are carrying stuff into the battle God never put on you and is time for you to take it all people putting this on you putting their expectations on you ministry on you putting their values on you to get you to do original don't you go into the battle, trying to be a copy of an original.

God knows what he's up to in your life.

When he called you and you gotta learn the go with what God has already placed in your go away were only about halfway through today's destined for victory message with pastor Paul Shepherd, senior pastor of destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California. Be sure to subscribe to pastor Paul on YouTube to watch some of his best video clips for more details. Be sure to visit us pastor Paul.net that's pastor Paul.net. There you can listen on demand recent messages or find a variety of resources in our online store is pastor Paul was arrested, today's message lessons from the battlefield and tried to cooperate and he looked ridiculous when we try to live like somebody else. When you try to make your decisions like somebody else. When you try to base your ministry on somebody else's fact of the matter is God know what is up to in your life and you got a go and let him use you the way he has ordained you to get comfortable with the way God uses somebody here.

You want to do the will of God used to God wants to move in your life that people put desktop on you believe verse meanwhile but they will just listen that they will dump on you busload of expectations and what you gotta learn to do is I'm serving God I'm following his lead.

I respect people God of my life but I read them to dictate to me what they are saying contradicts what God has been doing in my life and figure out quickly look stupid and he said I'm not proven this. I'm not use this.

This is not the way God moves in my life Lord told me years ago there was a style of ministry. He was giving me and I was not to try to base what he called me to do on somebody else struggled in the early years. I would believe in God took ministry said more you know I'm trying to do what you got me to do, but is not going to start reading books and they would tell me about their brand them as you go to church and you restart sure this is what you do as I read that book and the law was sent to you to do that is church group and in six months.

He already have 500 people in a six month I went from 34 to 39. You must always talk about you, let him do what he's called to do and you stick with what I called you to do somebody help is man's wisdom God using you your life you all be unique and be original. Thank you. Push your thoughts. But here is the way I read the Holy Spirit the way God is speaking to me what your family situation where the Lord tells you to deal with it might not fit somebody else's door was a young man here is what I do well not you will not, and you might not want to say and based on what your house you don't have anything to say to me by try to give you swimming lessons and drowning is because the way God uses you also say in that same point in the course of getting the way God uses you. You must understand that God is going to use your past victories in your past failures to help you when your present and future victories make that point because we Saul that David referenced the fact that the Lord used him to kill a lion and a bear as he was taking care of his daddy. She long before he got the Goliath. He had some experiences where he saw the power of God.

Come upon him that his past was a set up for his presence and his future and see what God is moving in your life the way God is moving in your life and you got to go with what God is telling you to do what I call you to be a senior pastor to give your teaching style of ministry from the pulpit of preaching tradition that I loved and respected many of my friends that traditionally God blesses their ministry.

Everybody has their own calling but the Lord told me when you get a senior pastor, I want you to teach my people and that was new to me because I was used to my tradition at home. I still let me call me to reach people need not just ration but they made an formation given you. I want you to be one teaching ministry to people's ignorance. Let me just hold a certain style of preaching to know exactly what did me in the key of E flat. I was ready to find some people called God bless them that way now given you a special assignment. She got me on the radio. God knew that he wanted me to help teach the nation of God, and he knew that style of ministry would not be relatable in many settings you know I couldn't get the station to. So Lord said, I got a different plan for you. All your friends and bless them what God wants to use you discover that if you just go with everything will work out okay. Just to follow the Lord and his unique plan for your life and victory one more point rely on the power of God rely on the power of God. I love it. Skip down the verse 45 taken off all this ridiculous stuff he says all the is to let God use me the way I'm used to using.

Look at verse 40 before you get down to 45.

The Bible says he took all the stuff David took his staff in his hand. She's a shepherd boy juice was that he chose five smooth stones from the stream put him in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine ridiculous. The natural would feel some got a stupid 9 foot tall warrior went hundred and 25 pound coal, you come with five stones and a sling all looked down at verse 45. David said to you, give me would soar and spear and javelin. He said what you don't understand the great theologian Beyoncé, you must not know about me that when in the know to just you say it come against you in the mighty God of the army of Israel. You have been five this will hand you are to me and I'll strike you down and cut off your head day I will give this is all the Army and the beast beat you, be all y'all all will know that there was a God in Israel by telling somebody that you got the power of God based on who you all about you based on who you serve you in the name of the Lord God said I could but clear victory chance now God's spirit. God promises you are in trouble now tell somebody on the power of God. You about what you can do, but God have the ability to give us supernatural power and the only meeting one just in case. He was a little off to the left taken the second shot and believe God is what you got matter how long the fight not matter what I have to do when this is over I'm going to be standing me up, God's plan in my life will be there. On the power see God do nominal thing in your life and give you the victory where you turn around and give him all of the below.
