Do you need a spiritual breakthrough today. In just a few moments, Pastor Paul Sheppard shows you how to get from wounded too well in this message. We are abiding, but before he get started.

He's been kind enough to join me from a studio in California, pastoralists take a moment and talk.

I know you're grateful for the way God is graciously supplied for our needs are destined for victory. We do want to say thank you to those who have been praying and generously giving even during the pandemic, but I know that you're concerned.

Along with me. That is, people emerge from the lockdown maybe ministries like ours could be forgotten, especially during the summer months. Let's talk about that for a moment. Yes sir. First of all, I cannot adequately say thank you to our partners to the occasional donors and to our legacy builders because they have been very consistent for the past 18 months or so. No matter what they heard. No matter what I was going on in society. No matter what. Panic buttons people were pushing donors seemed to get it that if we want to hear this kind of timeless preaching. We're going to have to make sure that this ministry is supported and they've done it faithfully. If you're one of those people listening. I want you to know how grateful I am that you follow the leading of the Lord, and you have been consistent in your giving and I pray that it continues not only in your life, but that we actually pick up new donors because especially when the summer hits all of us who do media ministry we might sound like where faith filled all the time, but some of us have those moments when we say Lord I sure hope these bills are to be paid because the gospel is free but the plumbing costs and those bills keep coming in every month we can't get this done unless partners come alongside and I'm grateful and I'm praying that the Lord will keep them giving and supporting throughout the summer months.

I love traveling and now that we can all feel like all let's get back in the car. Some people as get back on planes. Whatever grade.

Enjoy your summer. But please don't forget that the gospel has to be supported.

Now let's get started with Pastor Paul's message. We are body people for years, but first came in every now and then you literally get married you need to get married and conform to the will of God, God will bless you don't will be blessed yes as well bless you despite your disobedience people's hearts are right okay go get be back care only wedding and all that you can witness in the service right now you tell your but also we got the building all Psalm in the middle of Sunday stop and marry some people raise your hand. Because you need done in the middle of service and other people I met him in the lobby. I married him in my office with no you brought to you by your tithes and offerings. Somebody you buy gold and offerings.

Just because you whatever license cost because I want to see the will of God done, people getting who cares about the formatů And I found the people's hearts that are right there ready to do whatever they need to do now need you snooping around talk about what and then life still isn't right. You say, for God knows how long, when you will build your life that a quite right quick passing judgment on somebody else.

You're not their master, and so the church has to be ready to be receptive like we had to be when Kenny came into the household came in there stop making noise, disrupting things my mother as we saw him grow up. It was absolutely amazing. That boy could get away with stuff we would've never imagined you could get away with and where I last name and maybe a younger sibling happens when parents use their vigorous get older.

Caring about all the minutia and boy got away with me. He got away with that boy. He got up at my father's funeral in February 2008 we funeral last Monday. My older brother and I are the two pastors. The preachers in the family.

My dad was our pastor growing up, and that the Lord called my older brother, and then later me to the ministry. When Kenny got saved. I remember I was already here in California when Kenny got to see and he and I were writing what have you. And he told me he got saved told me about the experience of the service he was and who was preaching all that may I'm so proud of you. Praise God, as you so you will also preachers say glad to be a breach of, and I said no. If the Lord doesn't call.

Yes it only reason were bridges go to the Lord specifically called us to do that. The Lord doesn't call you. You won't have to be a preacher. Good saw he didn't want to to real straight with you anyway you can get to heaven and preacher gold at room close.

I'm hoping this is some hope see you and cause you got a little parking space as result and you will often get in but let me tell you if they knew what they were really asking for there is no parking space on that will make you want this idea because you see a parking space with some churches that have would Pastor said the biggest one is thrown on the phone, parking space a little to no self into anywhere you go to Gethsemane I can be passed that way. So I assured Kitty that he did not do. He been happy ever since he want to be a regular Christian envy you.

But back to him being raised differently than the first four of us will rate my dad so my brother and I jointly preached my dad's eulogy.

We did two eulogies and Kelly just had special remarks and so Kenny got up and he said let me clear this up for the benefit of all of you whole lot of these and let me make sure all of you understand I am the favorite shepherd child. I wanted to contradict him. I couldn't because they knew he was the favorite child. Yes he wanted. There was a contest he wanted. In fact, that was never a chance of anybody winning it.

When you saw the way that boy got raise versus the way we they were too old to candy just like UBI. I'm here to tell you and family life. It has to do with the parental decision that has nothing to do with what the siblings think siblings have to learn to get on board and get with the program because when God is what he can say and he tells us, you take care of because I'm going to hold you responsible for how you treat my kids want to say to you is that we have to learn then to be a functional spiritual family were born. Then we get into the new birth. Now we have to learn to be functional.

The New Testament is all of expectations that, when it all is said and done, it's just telling you, for God's sake, learn to get along.

As the family of God learn to be functional as the family of God, since you got in by and not by personal choice to get a little jealous. You all don't know what a functional family never seen one, be honest now only the front is no future in front of you. This message know what a functional family is you never saw one because God knows you were never raised in one people. We just need to shoot strike. How do I go from the background of this function don't feel ashamed because your Bible is full of this functional family, don't feel bad about job to Genesis. Somebody will will be right back with more of today's destined for Victor message from Pastor Paul Sheppard who is senior pastor destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California listen to the broadcast on that's Pastor real find a host of great resources in our online store. Jesus said greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

To learn more about the authority you have in Christ. Let's join Pastor Paul again for the rest of today's destined for Victor message.

We are a body Bible brother God except his offspring and reject my offering some is wrong here some chicory going on around here somewhere and I don't like and decided to take with God because God rejected his offspring and accepted his brothers offering and the way to name came make it right is his brother named Abel and killed him.

Genesis chapter 4, so your family didn't create this function is been here ever since.

When you go from bad, just keep going through Genesis after a while you run into Abraham's people down. By the way how I got here: this function after this function because that God had promised Abraham was old man would never having children, and several was old woman never gave birth and said y'all I'm going to use you and make you the beginning of a covenant family that I established according to my own will and I'm going to give your child and no smoke.

Her God. But then they put my daddy always called it put the brains in God's business and they concluded what we to also. God must not be told about us Sirus that I'm not the one. Sarah went to Abraham I'm showing you this function. Sarah went to Abraham and said in order for God to pull off what he promised, I will give you Hagar, my young Egyptian servant will make her a wife for you so that you can sleep with her and perhaps that's the way don't do this should didn't think that this function. What do you know what you say God promised also child and because 70 so you can be talking about me so will give you this. Your little cute Egyptian thing make your wife your second wife so that the tool you all you know, you know, okay, God is not playing he's serious about this. She said well then we had to have supernatural faith and we believe God that he's going work with this couple, somebody is an essay no chores around the house to run the big tour you don't know what it all out all you do this. She actually went against nature and said let's help him right yet but Kelly Cameron what is video she will forgive me for my wife so I can sleep with her and we can have a baby what she wants. You will play too much.

These are not very usually does what you want to see you high just what they can hear and Hagar came up with this function and that the child was raised in this household. This function went to another level. Because Hagar then started feeling herself, I'm the one with.

She then have a chat. This function got so bad that Hagar was acting. She started sassing her master she forgot that her paycheck was signed by Sarah and Sarah got to poison this job crazy. I need to put her in her place she did. The Bible says she treated her harshly and the unspoken word is an Abraham but not say anything. She treated us so harshly that she fled from the house and the Lord had to speak to her while she was running away.

Laura said where you going she said well Sarah and they treat me so wrong doing when they won't all they can see is what's happening to them.

They never take personal respondent not too much of whomever the people you know and the Lord said, get up, go home, Wesley told and submit to Sarah, go back, eat humble pie see something I don't know what humble pie is and you don't like its taste.

You don't even like it smell not only if you ever want to break through in your life you will have to learn the goal.

Below you will have to learn to get down to floor level ground level and say I been want to get right. So help me get myself together is with you later on. This function shows up again, this time with the child when you farewell to his test.

He will give you the makeup and it might not come right away.

Their makeup came 13 years later. By the time the makeup came the child Ishmael with Hagar is already a teenager. Finally Isaac comes around and born as a child of promise. When he's being weaned which, in their culture was probably somewhere one to two years when he's being weaned by that time. This little cocky. Ishmael teenager feel himself but now there's somebody getting new attention in the family.

Now he's not only child, not as this baby and that's happened with Kenny.

The baby gets more attention. So Ishmael decides he is going to mock the baby and Sarah, who is a mama and a grandmamma all wrapped up in one term and is waiting. She sees this child might get my baby. She said they Rimkus you for every walked over there. She said that child has got to go. He said baby, but that's my son. His mother is your your handmaiden. She's I'm glad you brought her because he got to go and she got a go with him.

By this time, she said all this point. She finally got us all together now to see how you got to go you when you somehow know where you're going, but you won't get. Thanks so much for joining us for today's message.
