The tongue is also a fire world of wickedness among the parts of the body. Coming your way next Pastor Paul Sheppard talks about the power of the human tongue.

It is destined for victory message. What did you say but first he joins me from a studio in California to talk about a special gift we have available for you today Pastor. I'm excited for a couple reasons about the thank you gift we have for those who are able to give generously and supportive destined for victory this month. First is not often that were able to share a video message for doing this because I know you feel that your hopes up is a message that everyone needs to see and hear. Absolutely. I'm eager to share this Encouraging Word with our listeners. We all know that hope is a premium commodity these days you can find it easily at all. We look around and we see all sorts of challenges both in the world at large and also in our personal lives. As a pastor I'm I'm seeing the effects of the vicissitudes of life on my members and and I hear from listeners even in the as they share their praise reports and prayer concerns and it's just a challenging world. The bottom line is I thought this is a time for me to remind people that we've gotta get our hopes up and we've got to keep him up because paying the heart ache reality is just among us, and we are going to deal with these challenges but I believe God has given us every reason to get our hopes up and keep them up because he is Lord of all, not just the good stuff. He is Lord of everything that's going on. And even when chaos surrounds us his plan and purpose will prevail. I constantly remind myself of what we say daily on this broadcast.

He who began a good work in us is going to bring it to completion.

So in this message. People are going to hear me share and I'm going to use case studies from the Scripture how people who faced real life challenges such as were all going through, but how they sold the Lord's hand in the midst of it how God brought them out of it, and gave them hope and help even in difficult times, and I hope that people are going to be blessed as they receive this video message.

Sitting with your mouth by accident. You do it only by result, the book of James is something of a how-to manual on practical Christian living. It tells us to endure adversity with a joyful heart to attract nonbelievers by performing good works in the name of Christ to treat all people with love and respect. Today I destined for victory.

Pastor Paul sheds light on yet another important theme for James human tongue will discover the damage it can do and the damage we can undo if we choose to repent.

Now with this message.

What did you say once again his best repulsion.

I want to let you know that there are many ways we can send with the tongue we can do and say unwise things with our tongue. Sometimes it's outright sin. What is sin sin is coming short of what God has marked out for us that sin and some things are and said remember. Hebrews arrived to the Hebrews said, let us lay aside every sin and what else and the way every way & that easily besets us something that I sent but they are weights they need to be unloaded there cumbersome. They don't make for slow living and smooth moving through life and so some whites have to be dropped and some sins have to be reprinted and then a whole lot of sins we can do sins and weights with our mouth jotted down a list from A-to-Z sampling sampling. You can have an angry tone that sins against God. Not all anger is sent now the Bible says there is appropriate anger. Be angry but don't send member Paul said that to the church at Ephesus.

Now if he said, but don't send it means you can be angry without sending what kind of anger that that's appropriate anger when you are offended by something that really needs to be addressed and you speak your mind about sometimes in your home you have to say angry words but their property.

If your parents sometimes you have to be appropriately anger with your children thought it is wimpy generation of parents who think this will be the key is best friend my job to be in sometime in the have to get you notice too much on that is appropriate anger but then anger that becomes was anger that goes way out abound. It goes away from the issue. It begins to disrespect people begin to call them out of their name up against her to go to another place to watch her angry tongue, boastful tone so we all just brag seated. I'm convinced you can save us money on your roasted that I'm convinced no little bit.

You can be aware of the gifts and abilities and acumen that God is given you, but it doesn't mean you have to take personal credit for doesn't mean you have to paraded around for the world to see.

That's boastful when the Bible talks about boastfulness in a regular way and means you're not giving God the glory you're taking all the glory for yourself. Fact of the matter is if you have a great intellect. God blessed you with somebody if your credit your craft. God gave you the ability to excel at that crab at the end of the day to give him the glory and you sound so grateful that God is giving you have to wear it with some humility, watch a boastful time watching complaining tongue Bible talk about that from Genesis to Revelation.

People I have to be careful that we don't complain in my because sometimes God himself is offended.

Don't believe me ask Israel when they were in the wilderness, and they were complaining complainant felt into the promised land. What you complains. I want your discouraging tone is not your job around discouraging other people. God haven't called you to be the angel of discouragement somebody believing God for healing and you really tell God what they have will help anybody get healed when you have your gray picked out all of that speak the biggest tone so you all we know everything your heart because it's always a that indicator light is always all you always look across the church is somebody who has what you and you gotta tear them down. That's the biggest tone on the why he picked her. She told him from the floor she so dumb to take an hour to make minute rice about to get a rule almost all) of rule coming you tear people down with George not to rejoice because what you when you saw all you please wish him well. The flattering tone flattering. When the Bible speak of flattery is never good. Flattery is never good flattery is when you use exaggerated compliments for a personal reason I can complement you just goes all beautiful dress you have on all manner like that here they faded you just write that's fine complement when you just go on and on all my life. Sorry things are beautiful. The Bible against the flattering tone. Not all flattery means something positive mean to be a set up. Never read Haman he was set up with his flattery of the king with his overindulging of the king always up in the king's face and so the king not being wise, gave him power that he didn't deserve any charge against God's people mentally. No weapon formed against us is going to prosper and set up a plan for Mordecai is what God brought back on him. But once flattery is my point. Once flattery coming to you and watch how you flatter other people put other people in perspective. You can admire them. You can see them as a model for something, but don't overdo it.

That's just a man or woman at the end of the day.

Don't overdo it. I have lots of pastor friends whose ministries dwarf mines anointing towards my preacher friend got. I wish I could preach like, but at the end of the day. I know these people may have trials and tribulations you know not. You see somebody up preaching and just, I mean just when you don't know what to going through a chance to get somebody slow that you admire on TV home goodness but you have to look at the flipside going on but I don't and will be back with more of today's destined for Victor message from Pastor Paul Sheppard was into this program any time by subscribing to the podcast version is available at Apple podcast or wherever you get yours. You can also listen on that's Pastor will find a host of great resources that are online store, including books and DVD messages from Pastor Paul not only has the potential to damage relationships can destroy the church for more on the power of the tongue is join Pastor Paul again for the rest of today's message. When did you say she got gossiping to churches are full of churches are full of gossiping tongue they call it prayer requests. I'm not telling you what I think I'm tell you what I absolutely know my whole life call you on your we got to pray just so they can introduce some that you don't necessarily know what they think they know it and they want to share with you and they call the prayer request problem is they don't pray as you know is not a prayer request made gossip spray offended that you call me with junk. I got to be male or female don't get it twisted.

Don't act like all the women on the gossip gossiping men. Some of the biggest gossips. I know our preachers to preach were longtime. I know some preachers who would gossip you under the table talk about other ministries and other unique and just running the mouse. I made him pray once call me with junk. This isn't right.

You know that for sure. Could you send it like like it's really true. I have this on a reliable source always to get a reliable source. How come you don't name it was so reliable shared with me.

I don't want them newspaper article and that you don't tell me where you got this information from. We think it's okay next summer. Gossip calls you would want to jump say if that's really that's true you say it is. But if it is that's that's terrible and we really need God to intervene to stop and pray right now and tell them you lead in prayer. I'll agree with you that will be the last time the gossip to you because they don't want to pray they want hasty tongue. You talk too fast. Instead of thinking first, your head, aftermath not you not show somebody on euro will see who it is. Gotta hasten the rest of my list for a quick this wrapped up by the industry, tongue industry, tongue you say what you know. Say what you don't know what you say like it's true indiscretion. You don't know what to say what not to say your meddling by like that don't know what to say some things can be said and be edifying on things have no business coming out your but they come in discrete, the judgmental tone, always passing judgment on somebody judgmental people. When you hear judgment yourself with it because the same people who are judging others will judge you. You happen not to be the target so you think it's safe to go to jump right in there just let the right set of circumstances take place in your life and they will be judging you. First and foremost is about being judgmental. If you pass judgment on other folk you set yourself up to have judgment passed on you.

I've seen people talk about other folks families and in a hellacious way only down the road to have a worse problem breakout in their family, and I noticed the other family. Suddenly they get a revelation on grace is good. I'm getting this CD know it all tongue know it all tongue, not you, but there are people who say stuff like this that they have no idea whether what they're know what all they just always telling you what is definitively and you will but I don't mean in which about the same time self-explanatory.

You're just a liar liar who happens to be saved in church leads you have a spoken faith. You need to have a real one that makes you confess the sin of lying and start telling the truth. Paul said to the church at Ephesus. He suspect the truth that something of a white lie lie don't have colors, lies of God. They hurt people stop it.

In Jesus name M meddling, some meddling time in other people's business talk about stuff that doesn't pertain to you just because it happened to me. You have to talk about something happened and they happen to you about it. Naysayers you already somebody trying to build up the faith and get ready to do some take some real leap of faith on my den your naysayer always knocking down your like Sam ballot told by the wall. Fox walks on that it tear down is not your job. Oh, obscene phone, watch what you say watch how you say it. Your language on honor God language on a respect people know me to be obscene things.

I hate the most, happened recently is when you go to see a movie because you think there's some good entertainment value in it. But the upset of the is so strong until you can hardly enjoy the entertainment value because they've covered it up with all this obscenity and it's a shame that our world has just grabbed and called it entertainment pride. The prideful tone to the quarreling tongue. Our room tone said, as nice as it can say something but try to be nice asked the slandering tongue line on people slandering them, running them down T the tactless time you met a tactless person to say you try to lose weight you see him again and working on black is a lot I tell you thousand one and I were looking at job 15 say I said the day will encourage them just tactless unbelieving tone, expressing doubts, that of faith. The vicious tongue and that's why W use weapon eyes you know you can use your tongue as a weapon. Anything come against people and destroy people and relationships. Could you got a weapon in your mouth X the expected time was the pastor I met. We don't know what you're about to say next X pack as wet as my ex that expected tone. We don't know about your mouth. I wanted the same way will know what spirit may come out your mouth you have deliberate words we know what you will say is edifying and these are the things that displease God. The tone that means words that produce upheaval and agitation say something, and it produces agitation. It never settles things its thirst things up. That's what he steaming and zigzagging tone you can stick with one point of view versus say this.

Next thing we all you notice is good, and many of these produce, if not send weights that need to be cast off. Some of them are flat out sin because God is clearly spoken against.

So what we do is start point is were called to bring our words into alignment with God's word.

That's my agitation to you because that's what James is getting bring your words into alignment with God's word is means repent. When you realize your speaking role or have spoken wrong. I'm sorry I said such and such, it is not true or wasn't helpful wasn't edifying. It was inappropriate. It was uncalled for.

It was disrespectful. It was vicious and I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

Repent to God and to anybody who was directly impacted by what you said about revival would break out if Christians would learn to take back what they say and wrong.

I get sick of seeing people granite me who need to apologize to me happens on a regular basis. You see them somewhere pop up somewhere and they know they've done you wrong I noted on the wrong I've heard it all, place, and all I see is your teeth revival would break out if we ever start repent for what we said wrong, what is come out of our mouth that is offended God and disrespected people just repent. The psalmist said in Psalm 17. The second part of verse three he said have resolved that my mouth will not sin my mouth will not sin has not transgressed it to resolve its of this you have to make.

You don't stop sinning with your mouth by accident.

You do it only by result has to be resolved. You have to make up in your mind. And when you hear something wrong so you know what, that's not order him I'm sorry, I shouldn't said that I shouldn't said that. I take that back. Please disregard like the same court strike that from the record. If you would do that and live your life. That way you teach yourself the stops and would you mouth if you make yourself on the consequence right then and there. It would make a world of difference. So the question is that we started with what you say. Learn to say that to yourself before someone else have the safety but if they do give your friend permission to check you on your mouth, give your spouse permission. I want to be that perfect person that change that we need to strive for something when you are missing some wrong which is check me the check I sent.

Make sure that we don't dishonor God thanks for being with us for today's message. What did you say if you'd like more information about the destined for victory program or the DVD were offering is our thank you for your generous gift this month.

God has big plans for you and there are three built in enemies that want to come against and knock you out of the place where you can experience God's best for your life.
