    • Absolutely essential that you are wounded in the ministry
    • Really important that you are betrayed and wounded
    • Man of sorrow acquainted with grief
  11. Handle Rejection of your brothers
  12. His Brothers later reminisced
    • Genesis 42:21-22
      They said to one another, “Surely we are being punished because of our brother. We saw how distressed he was when he pleaded with us for his life, but we would not listen; that’s why this distress has come on us.”Reuben replied, “Didn’t I tell you not to sin against the boy? But you wouldn’t listen! Now we must give an accounting for his blood.”
  13. Holy Spirit
    • Learn to trust God for everything
      • Health
      • Finances
    • God is learning to trust us
      • Jesus
        • Father glorify your name
        • We cry out most for rescue
      • We say God get me out of this, and God reply it took me 6 months to get you into it
      • If you can’t learn out to glorify God
        • You will want stupid thing
          • Title
            • Apostle
        • At the pinnacle of your ministry, you will find out your ministry was all about you
        • Self Exalted
        • Ministry
          • Servant
          • Stewardship
          • Slavery
        • The things like Apostle, Prophets, Teachers are not titles
          • They are Job Descriptions
        • Matthew 23:8-12
          But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
          And do not call anyone on earth your father, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
          Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Christ.
          The greatest among you shall be your servant.
          For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

    • God allows in his wisdom, what he can prevent through power
    • God used them to change him
  25. Where we must come …
    • We must come to a place of kindness and generosity
    • If we wait for God to vindicate us, we will wait for a very long time
    • Don’t make your healing conditional on your vindication
  26. Someone came saying he had a dream and received a scroll.  He opened the Scroll and read his vindication
