And God says this season of your life is designed to get you to seriously hello, thanks for being here for today's destined for victory with pastor Paul Shepherd, Senior Pastor destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California. I'm sure you have high hopes and dreams and I'm sure you have designers and God invites you to express those things to but when all is said and done what he's trying to help you do get to a place in your spiritual journey in which you can say Christ did. Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done. Today's message is coming your way next stay with us here or visit Pastor Regulus any recent destined for Victor message on to me, that's Pastor and here is Pastor Paul. Today's destined for Victor message your training God says this season of your life is designed to get you to sir yes sir what Jesus did in the garden. Matthew 26, 39, he said, it says brought a little farther, he fell on his face, prayed my father if it's possible, may this cup be taken from me you not as I will but as you will get to the yet what you want that's cool when you got to say, however, nevertheless, this really is about what I want. This is about what you will what you command. That's why Jesus is commended. That's why you read what is said is for God hath highly exalted him because he himself and became obedient to the cross what God has highly exalted him. We want to be highly exalted, and we hadn't died the best we can talk about TV preaching. If you have a boatload of the more junk on Christian TV bowl told about suffering and denying yourself and saying God, not my will be done about fighting the fight of faith being a soldier and enduring hardship about hardships they talk about shot, and if you feel that junk is going take you farther away from where God needs you to be with you sir yes yes God prospers. Yes, God bless blesses. Yes, God favors you will probably in the context is yielded to him and to his purpose and I'm doing his will. First, and then I wait to see how he's going to bless me with just your attitude number three. Watch your words, you can't speak any way to a commanding officer, even in the presence of certain decorum. There is a certain carriage that goes along with being a soldier and they are disciplined in speech. You know why that disciplined in speech because our speech has a lot to do with what's in our hearts and sold a teacher you have to speak right because we been training you into the course of the training we been developing a certain tuning you a soldier have a certain mindset and him or her obey know that when name is the most important thing we gotta be victorious, being victorious soldier so you have to be very planned and you have to learn to speak better. I want to call you as a child of God to improve what you say somebody will bellyache bellyache bellyache.

That's all you do is complain about everything is going wrong in your life and I'm saying that's not the language of a soldier, even when a soldier has to face a challenge that is a discipline that is spoken about victory.

Paul modeled that in second Corinthians 4 I did a whole series on this verse is a nine-hole message on this when we talked about the God of the, Paul said we are hard pressed on every side, there comes a soldier in him, but not crushed.

Going to send what hard pressed on every side and whistled to talk how man is the worst battle ever, but we go winning possibly hard pressed on every side, but not Christ. We are perplexed, but not in despair, we, but not abandoned.

We are struck down, but not destroyed.

What's he doing showing us that's the way up. That's the way a soldier looks at the situation the soldier speaks properly.

They not only watch the words in terms of making sure there profession is positive and determined they watch their words in terms of shutting up when they're supposed to.

One of the things that I read that they were telling me so young want to be recruits. You speak when spoken to by your officer will just go bus up in the office said no ma'am say about something I want talk to you. You speak when you spoken to. You gotta learn when to be silent. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes chapter 3 verse seven that time to be silent and a time to speak some you all the season you're in right now of your spiritual discipline is God is giving you grace to shut up and your having them learn to take it now for some of y'all that's the whole process because shut up. Just admit your genes, let's be honest so y'all just don't have you just got that fight and you just got that response in you you you will wait one wait whole up about everything in your life. Feisty.

I've seen them up into puppy mill different times we had dogs and you know they'll grab some of the puppies in one of the things I do to come up show you what the temperament is like is there grab one and put it on his stomach but put on his back. Some just feisty just struggling to get back on my back and they'll show you this once come out for this one. This one has its own things and put them on junk backup is not when you put on about me like who y'all good I'm good. I think you don't know why you looking for an aggressive doll. That's not you know that don't need to be some in spiritual things, God will not make a leader out of you in any area make you a leader on your job make you a more authoritative person in your community and your home. He will give you responsibility to help disciple of the people until you have learned to be an excellent follower, which means you shut up. Even though you got to say. Gotta learn how to sit in a meeting and listen the full and everything in USA and your mind and sometime Laura just had to submit say don't don't say anything because he's teaching. It was really not about just about them is about you don't say that always happen to me is quite a bit and just sit this it is God's training you watch your words. Some of you are losing the battle severely over your mouth, you say everything that comes your mind, you need to talk more to God than the people and let God do what he is doing in your life. Number four.

Narrow your focus.

Such priorities adjust your attitude watch your words. Number four. Narrow your focus. What I mean by that. They teach recruits that you're not going to get through boot camp. Looking ahead to officers training you got us Through boot camp. They say one day at a time.

Guess what they got that from the word, the Bible calls us to live one day at a time. James said in his epistle don't go around saying it is no maximum connection he said attitude. If it's the Lord's will learn to live in daily doses. That's God's plan is 22, 23, because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are what every morning great is thy faithfulness.

We loved this part.

You gotta get before that God is giving you complete love and compassion and the ability to make it in daily doses. Every morning he gets removed and that's what results in you expressing the faithfulness of God.

Y'all shall because go that's fine for you house you can't day is no spiritual Cosco. You can go get a value pack of grace. UK getů Don't give you great man. I got grace put all know you don't know you don't know what is going to bring bring one call can shake you in the car place at the wrong time.

Change your life. Whatever you will have great for the future. You don't know what the future holds. You have graceful today.

If you tap into. Give us this day Jesus said, our daily bread. Matthew 611. As part of the prayer he taught us to pray. Give us this day our daily bread. So we are asking God. Lord, give me today about three months were from. And the bread represents not just physical food but everything you need to nourish your soul and get you through a season of your life is not uncommon in value packs.

The first back to the rest of today's message. Once again is Pastor Paul told Jodi here is when you up late and I think I can make it just ran out of days grace also go to bed. That's when you walk out announced all found out about him out nicely. We got Nandu. It is sometimes I just need to get away from everybody because anything I have to say the rest of this night all I wish I had some witnesses up in here. There comes a time when you say you harassed your goal in the room, talk to Jesus, read the word, chill out till fall off to sleep so I can wake up and get my daily dose of mercy and grace get up in the morning. Hello, only got a day's work. Don't push me too early, say some new somebody give us this day our daily bread. You need grace for every new day for every new season. I tell you. Often the people you live with your spouse you will marry your spouse and the person you you said I do to. They been changing for better, maybe worse, they been changing and developing.

You may graceful your coworkers give me today Lord one day at a time.

That's why you think you can stay spiritual and not pray and not read the word you fooling yourself. How have time for the post and you don't have time not to have devotion before you got to be a just read to reach over grandma iPhone go right to the daily reading still laying in bed laying in bed, still dark, but I phone lights up reading for to Lord speak to me out of this encourage me out of this. Help me to find a resolve here then you pray, talk to God before you get out the best start talking to people you better talk to God talk to people first knuckle go well.

Some days number five finally help your buddy help your buddy. A young recruit is taught as a soldier you are never to think in loan terms we function as a company, a troop we actively are soldiers. They are taught you one behind behind it suffers. We also gets out.

We all get out. When he got kicked out his body to be desecrated by the enemy.

All you side-by-side which you can be a lie which will only be help him. Jesus said, humiliation of your life so that you are, you will know how to strengthen your brothers.

That's what Luke 2232, says you can read it.

I got the worst life and you will be thoroughly ashamed of yourself and you're not even gonna know for sure because he didn't understand the depth of God's love. He had never tested him before and he didn't know before the end of this night you will wonder if I still want you to be a disciple in the Bible says that Jesus was going to the cross. Peter followed a far-off he had just shown by publicly denying Jesus. He didn't have the power to be identified with, but his heart made him follow a far-off he was weak he had fallen and failed miserably.

But his heart was I want to be with Jesus and he will if that was the end all. But when Jesus was raised that Sunday morning he said go tell my disciples and Peter to meet me in Galilee to call them by name what so that no Jesus wants you and so polls would know Jesus wants him as I was. No, but a soldier scoop some up and since the charge know what God's plan was gone so much for myself.

Weeks after the resurrection. The cost is about to hit golf said I need somebody to preach in Aramaic in Jerusalem that I see all these other folks begin in foreign languages.

I need somebody to stand up and speak the native tongue. Think of all these faithful 120 in the upper room gossip know you and say on who had failed miserably seven weeks earlier, is standing up saying this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel today or leave your brother sister behind because they had a rough season rough time in their life going through some changes pick up your brother, pick up your sister. Don't you dare throw away somebody who has a heart for God, who keeps on coming back no matter what the devil throws.

Adam says I can't get this right. I gotta get where God wants me to go some encouragement. You gotta learn to strengthen your brothers. Last thing I'll say is be encouraged if you're in a training season because training that last always training after training comes promotion after training comes graduation you do that place where you experience all that God was prepping you for the way is put in our text is all the suffering and the training is not pleasant. It's painful later on. However, it produces a harvest to harvest coming. That's why you gotta work so hard. Now you got a harvest coming you got some blessing stored up for you guys that I'm ready to release them in your life but you gotta pass your tests. I came to tell somebody your harvest is on the way. Would you gotta get these lessons down your priorities and just watch your words and your buddy and do it until you sing take you into a new season where you'll take all of these disciplines use the thanks so much for being here for today's destined for victory message you're in training look for any of Pastor Paul's recent messages online on that's Pastor will and pleased to welcome Pastor Paul who joins me know from his studio best. We often hear from people who been blessed by the ministry every time I hear one of those testimonies.

I feel blessed myself and humble really that I get to play a small part in that talk about the importance of encouragement and the role it plays in all of our lives. Often when we have our worship services and I have people pray, we usually link hand so that they're praying for the person to the left and the right and as I in the prayer from a pastoral standpoint I say the people I want you to know that when you pray for your neighbor, your inspired because when he answers your neighbors prayer. He's in the neighborhood and he's going to bless you and so we need to be encouraged that as we minister to other people. God is going to see to it that our needs are met.
