That's when you'll find the fulfillment you're looking for. Stay with us now or visit pastor to hear any recent Destin for victory message on demand.

That's pastor now this Destin for victory message.

There is power in fulfilling your purpose is pastor Paul is.

Everything is not every purpose is no things you will know the things you need to know what you make sure you know what you need to know to fulfill his purpose. Everything else goes that Mr. number four where purpose is unknown. Abuse is inevitable where purpose is unknown. Abuse is inevitable.

So many things and so many processes and so many people are abuse because their purpose is not known where purpose is unknown you abuse things.

What I abuse me look at the two words is made up abnormal use where purpose is unknown you will you something abnormal because you don't know why it was created so you use it wrong in the wrong way, but understand that powerful principal where purpose is unknown and that's why some of y'all don't have any business trying to get married because you don't know the purpose of a husband or wife. So if you got one you would only abuse it just went deep where purpose is unknown.

Abuse inevitable. Number five if you want to know the purpose of a thing. Don't ask. The thing if you want to know the purpose of a thing.

Don't ask. The thing why it exists in know it was create tiered so don't ask.

The thing why exist when it was created outside of itself.

If you want to know the purpose of a thing. Don't ask the thing number six purposes only found in the mind of the creator of a thing that stands to reason it. Then if you want to know why does that exist why did you create that where do you get that information from me because I create it. The last great you as a great you get that info from me. That's why the staff. I tell folks when people want to know what I think. Don't you tell what ask him so he can tell you my lifetime try to speak for me and the nonsense that came out of their mouth purpose only found them on the thing and seventh and finally purpose is the key to fulfillment, purpose is the key to fulfillment just put those 7-Up one more times and I might still be trying to finish them up. Just put them up on the screen one more time purpose is the key to fulfillment. So what are the seven things God is a God of purpose. Everything God creates has a purpose. Not every purpose is known to us, where purpose is unknown. Abuse is inevitable if you want to know the purpose of a thing. Don't ask. The thing purpose is only found in the mind of the creator of a thing, and seventh and finally purpose is the key to fulfillment. Don't try to leave this earth till you have fulfilled your purpose fulfill your purpose. People spend their lives wanting to be held, but they have no idea how to do it well you you will be filled as you fulfill your purpose. That is one sure well syncs up with God's will. Now if you stay in rebellion to God's will, then you get to define was going to fulfill you because at the end, it's still not going to matter because only what we do for Christ. That's going to let what you need to learn that purpose is really the key to fulfillment. Now I've talked for years about how to discover God's will or God's purpose in this context; God's purpose it's God's will. Same thing and for years I've given keys using the letters a through G.

These are my keys to discovering God's purpose for your life since you you buy-in okay.

Yes, God created me for certain things I want to do those in my lifetime, pastor, how do I discover what his purposes are for me. I got some keys. A stands for ask ask God why he created you. If you want know the purpose of the thing known as the thing purpose is only found in the mind of the credit of the thing God your creator so ask him to crave me.

I know you you parents through the process of procreation. But what actually did you create me what you want me to do. Ask him don't ask all your friends they don't know. Ask God be burdens Destin second key burdens look at your burdens burdens often indicate where, how, and who you are called to serve. Look at your burdens what you mean by that. Things that not depress you in the in the clinical sense that bring you down the things that you when you see them.

You have such pain and compassion as you look at some heartbreaking situation in the world or in a family or whatever the case might be, you look at something and you currently can't be content by just leaving it like it is. It's what my experience when he realized the wall of Jerusalem had been destroyed. The people Obama bowl there and has been masked over and he with the idea of Jerusalem having a broken wall broken gate he could and all he lived far away. He was serving a king but he couldn't handle the homeland being in such disarray. Burden what burdens you what you see in your life in your community. What you see in the world what you see in the business world. What you see everywhere you can that reality. Not in some way burdens often are an indication is useful to do.

Don't be one of people who has a burden and talk to anybody about about to try to get them to do so. All I spent my life getting people begin to the service as if I may write you these emails.

My list is all over the work. I tried it in a sick I was just praying and I seem to me that you could today. You went wrong you planning God put me on your mind.

He told you about because you got that mixed up and give you a burden for me to tell all right, little C stands for conferral. Conferral refers to others speaking or otherwise imparting God's will.

There was a proper way to confirm the wrong way is when you call me as a God put you my heart useful duties no but the right way is God does use other people. Usually people who are prayerful to show you something you're supposed to be doing. In fact, guess how Elisha, the subject of this series came to be the prophet because God used Elijah to come for the calling on him and I assure you that the moment let me finish this this list of keys. These stands for dreams, dreams, and it includes visions can indicate what God has called you to do.

Not every dream you have a significant but some may be not everything. So we all wake up that's summit with and describe the dumbest dream and the people in your house, looking at you and you acted like a significant no baby just ate too close to bedtime, going to close the bed and this dreamless so you may get all significant but so is some of it is or could be. Sometimes God gives you a dream or vision that was the difference dreams what you have while you sleep.

Visions of what you have in your wake.

Sometimes gotta give your dream or vision in your heart and into real you can all but physically see it.

It's real.

I've known people. God gave them a vision of the business.

They later built in a very very profitable. A church or ministry. I came to California because it was a very big vision in me and I told my daddy how was his associate pastor at a certain point I said I got a lead because this God wants me to fulfill is not here. I'm not to be your success. I remember telling my dad goddess and show me I'm not to succeed you I'm working with you to help you and to learn from you and I spent seven years being my dance associate pastor doing everything he needed me to do because I knew I was preparation for me going, dreams and visions often indicate God's purpose. C stands for exposure God will often expose you to the right people who can make you aware of a divine calling. Sometimes your whole life changes because you got expose the one thing or one person or one business or one ministry and woke up a new world exposure is so if you're not exposed to the right things, you will be still ahead.

Now looking for your divine calling. Pay attention to the people God puts in your life because they can often help you find this pastor Paul with the rest of today's message. There is power in fulfilling your purpose exposure can take the lids off can take sealing all exposure can change your perspective this pandemic.

Expose me to a reality that I would leave it open to that, I could separate people and they didn't have to be here physically. I can separate them.

I learned I can tell you just as anointed on zoom as I can sit no mean people who made you like this.

You gotta talk with pastor and now that I got members all will just coordinate and administer you, the anointing travels travels and so people just as blessed is something I just need now I need the past, the cabinet I need all you hold a run in the past Wonderful crazy to be jealous of the Fogo helping you get when you get old and secure. The older I get, the more secure I get. I am so good. My ego is not involved at all, but you gotta know sometimes I will exposure to certain things in certain realities and suddenly I figure I capacities people across the across the miles across the oceans. If God has synced us up and I have the word of God in my mouth for you then will make it happen. And so that's what's happening exposure is everything F stands for faith.

Faith is acting on what you believe God wants you to do at the end of the day you can have all the business in the world to your faith activates the vision. It'll stay unfulfilled. I could talk all I want guns, many California cities will make me a soul winner and a disciple or a lot of people in California I heard that in 1988 very clearly Underwood 19. I still associate pastor in Philadelphia and God's so mail the business of soul winner disciple or and it turned out it was in Northern California just what none of that wouldn't matter to got in the car and came sinfully.

All you all man will be supplemental to all man recently All sold will be saved lives will be changed all God will work that is not only reason I said that is what you will blast Concilio threatening to start a business threatening the start of industries threatened, threatened, threatened, threatened, when the day, when the day one the day you day to be out to take a step step was the point of this, but take a step because you won't get the second step. Do you think the first one. Faith is acting.

Peter said yes you are going to waterbed me to come out there were two. Now guess what now you got and he stepped out and he was but then he started thinking about it and Godspeed to you just do don't think because the more you think the more you go Mr. Silva must start a business account number on the business I'm in the business glad and they started sinking just like an C stands for gifts look in the ways God has gifted you want to know what God wants you look at what he put in you spiritual gifts your natural abilities your learned skills are all in the realm of possibility for you to fulfill his plan and purpose for your life. You gotta know it's already in you. The miracle is already in the house of your life.

And so you've just got to activate your spiritual gifts your natural abilities and some of your learned skills are going to be sanctified and used for God's purpose, even if you learned it in a secular school you can use it in the school of faith.

So you got understand. Stop making these distinctions when asked natural gas.

I only do things in the spiritual know your natural abilities. If you give them the God he can utilize them. He'll energize them with the Holy Spirit. That's what singers do. Singers are, you know anybody who has a singing voice can sing well but one who gives that voice to God can now use that voice to transform the lives of people and so you got understand these are the ways that we discover our purpose. So what Eli should do. He encountered the man was going to give him his purpose. This power in fulfilling your purpose. Look at verse 19, the first Kings 19. Elijah departed from the mountain. I told you he was up there with God and God told him I'm not with you. You got three people to anoint one of them was Elisha so he departed from there. Verse 19 found Elisha the son of South that was plowing with 12 yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the 12 then Elijah passed by him, and through his mantle on him, which led me then and in Bible days. That means when a prophet throws a mantle on you he is saying you are my successful God has chosen you. You are my successor implication is. So now you gotta come be my apprentice. My mentee, you gotta learn as much as you can for me that there is going to come. I'm handing the baton to you all of that is in the mental so you gotta know God has conferred on some of you already. Sometimes your parents spoken to you what God wanted you to do some prayerful person spoken to you what God I wanted to do. Sometimes you heard about it and it didn't seem like it was coming from God, but now when you start pulling things together. You signal God's been pushing me in the same direction, and you have got to understand there's power in fulfilling your purpose, you got understand some of you need to know. Nothing else is going to happen. Toward the fulfillment of your purpose until you now take another step understanding is one thing but now another step.

Now Elisha has the mantle cast on and then Elijah keeps walking. Meaning, you better follow me. I'm not chasing you down. You better follow me.

That's what I told my dad seven years working with him. I said my job is to learn as much from you as I can to learn how to be a pastor to learn how to fulfill somebody else's vision because I learned well when he taught well principles like God will never give you your own vision until you somebody else to fill bears that's a really important thing some folk don't know that something just the goal is not this is when I see what you do have somebody else let me put it another way, you ready to operate. God wants you to call some folk love operate old did you see me I was so anointed man. I anointed power. God is only restaurant all my God. Oh, I was in that place. And God was just all over me. I did look at people and they just felt no blue. You gotta learn to cooperate before Jesus learned to function on earth.

In those three years of ministry. The only way he learned to do that. Is he learn how to submit to our earthly father before he had to submit to his heavenly phone. He spent 30 years in Joseph's anyone out there telling Joseph what he wouldn't do that one go prepare him for what God had for him so he submitted Joseph was a commoner, guess what Jesus did the first years of his life he was, he submitted all gotta learn cooperation is vital to ration that's in God's economy. So you gotta learn how to operate by cooperating and so bottom line is God will clash you as you actively fulfill's want to be a good leader to be a good follower is pastor Paul said today it's often true that before God will let you operate.

He wants you to first learn to cooperate with the last thing Jesus told his disciples was to go out into the world and make more disciples in one of the best ways to take part in the great commission with pastor Paul Sheppard and all of us are destined for victory is by becoming a destined for victory partner for as little as $20 a month in light of some severe challenges these past two years or so people are eager to hear about the hope we have in Christ, and many are getting that message to the destined for victory broadcast.
