All of this later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan writing this have to worry not, because your problems are necessarily small because your God is so big when you're serious, no worries, emphasis on no that's God's will for your life. Raza not worry at all. He really wants that for you as our worries tend to lead us towards the thing we worry about.

We look for what we worry about like the husband who blesses hard every night, his wife and wake him up in the middle and I think I hear semi downstairs is I don't hear anything I could be a burger please go check yes like to go down there so he would get up beautifully put on his robe go downstairs, look around, come back to back in Venice that is nothing she said and next nine honey I think I hear something downstairs.

I'm sure it's that I don't hear anything downstairs, look around, come back if nothing and he did this almost every night for 20 years of their marriage and one night he went downstairs and she woke him up.

I hear something downstairs fears nothing went out this robot while downstairs, turned the corner, look to the den and sure enough a burglar was stepping out the back door with her TV and freeze thinking that the homeowner was armed. The burglar dropped the TV, put his hands up in the air and husband said no, no, don't worry, I'm not the future that's what you do me a favor before you leave would you like coming upstairs with me. There's a woman out there and waiting 20 years to meet you things that you worry about capture your attention and you start looking for skewers your ability to see what God wants you to see time where there was something that it was in plain view but you couldn't see when we are family would like to do the jumble puzzles.

It's just a little word thing you unscramble words and then there's a certain number of letters that are circled.

Once you unscramble those and then use those letters and unscramble those into words that answer a puzzle and we just like to do the jumble once there was a jumble that we got really stuck on Longo many years ago and got one word just could not get Abby and I my daughter I will get on it.

We tried everything that we possibly could.

It what was said BREEYE HPr EYEH and couldn't figure it out, and so finally and lately she said is inherently a word that inherently she said you know I heresy that well. I don't think so. She says the only thing it can be. We tried every other combination and she wrote in there. She wrote inherently and and we descended down so that exists ridiculous therapy and a little later he came in she looked out the puzzle she said oh you we said we we did she say hereby and here is how I got here by now you know why I heresy on the mind is like it's in plain view. You can't see because once your mind is looking for something else you can miss the truth when you distorted this story is so they should turn this into a movie this this this whole story and it is set in the time of Elijah and Elisha Elisha, the successor to the great miracle working profit. Elijah during the time of the divided monarchy in Israel and Syria was always wanted to invade Israel and this is a story about how God enabled his people to see in the Syrian army to not be able to see because in the end your worries will melt away, not by you saying well I don't really have any problems in life know sometimes we really do, but don't melt away when you see God's grace surrounding you. Supernaturally we pick up in second Kings chapter 6 at verse eight second Kings chapter 6 verse eight.

Once when the king of Syria was warring against Israel. He took counsel with his servants say that such and such play shall be my camp but the man of God sent word to the king of Israel, where they do not pass this place for the Syrians are going down there. Many gods talk about Elisha and the king sent to the place about which the man of God told him that she used to warn him so that he saved himself there more than once or twice what it was happening is that every time the king of Syria makes a military plan to attack Israel. The Lord shows Elisha the plans and Elisha then goes and tells the king of Israel, all of what he's heard from the Lord. And so there are always one step ahead of the king of Syria because of a life is prophetic ministry and got verse 11 in the mind of the king of Syria was greatly troubled because of this thing and he called his servants and said to them, will you not show me who of us is for the king of Israel. So obviously, the king of Syria thinks that there's a spy in their midst of the double agent somebody that is revealing their secrets to the enemy. How else can they always be one step ahead of them and this is where the story starts getting pretty comical and in fact the whole story has an image of laughter to it of Iranian satire and laughter even if it's raising incredible power and grace of God. Look at verse 12, and one of his servants said not my Lord, poking Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel, the words that you speak in your bedroom.

This is so funny but not really saying that Elisha is in there going to the king. Original Sin well heard the king of Syria talking about brushing his teeth the other night and he needs new toothpaste and that her few things that he said to his wife that that's not really what he me what is just saying is that this man is reading your mail, he knows everything going on because God speaking to him. It's a story about who can see what God sees and whoever can see with God's eyes is the one who's actually powerful, so verse 13, king of Syria said go see worry is that I may send an sees him go and see where he is is like we need to send out our own spies to go and try to find Elisha figure out where he is, then we can kidnap him. They want to kidnap him. Maybe the king of serious thinking I could use him to give me some insights, but verse 13. It was told him, behold, he is in docent. No espionage was needed. Elisha was not hiding. Everyone knew where he was so verse 14 he sent their horses and chariots, and a great army and they came by night and surrounded the city they came so they couldn't be seen in the middle of night. It's clearly overkill. He's coming after one man and he sent a whole army who fills up the city and the hillsides and here's what happens at verse 15 when the servant of the man of God, rose early in the morning and went out to hold an army with horses and chariots was all around the city and the servant said. Alas, my master, what shall we do.

So what happened is the servant gets up to go and fix coffee go out get the morning paper steps out to the porch and he looks around and goes know I looked up the Hebrew for alas it is actually a word that sounds like what you would say it is fair.

Horses and chariots and soldiers everywhere and he comes back to report this. He is completely off course, consumed with the enemy that is at hand. This is the nature of worry.

Once it catches your attention, it's all that you can really see our perspectives get shaped and distorted. The things that you're interested in the things that you expect to see these are the things that influence what you actually see if you expect the worst. Then you'll usually look for that like the husband who was so inattentive to his wife and they were all the time.

He never showed or any of much attention or there was no romance and she had a particular horrible day she was at home.

She had two sick kids at broken dishwasher applied in the house all the stuff that you desire terrible night to talk to him in the middle of the day, and he decided to change his ways so he just suck it dressed up, went by, got a dozen roses set range for a babysitter to go and just take her out for a date that night and so he came an unusual fashion. You just to the front door had his roses all dressed up, rang the front doorbell and there was standing and she opened the door and she started crying is strong first kids is broken: right top it all off you come home drunk here saved by what you expect to be if something is more interesting to you than that's really what you're likely see Alan Wright will have more teaching moment from today's important series to be accepted perfectly free to be yourself with no fear of injection roll their eyes make fun of you and letting alas, no more anxious feeling that you feel like the pressure is always on right here for your life with no shame before sin came into the world's relationship notion since the fall of the human heart has been riddled with camping trip except seem condescending, so I try to be perfect in order to meet since I'm not a measure at them as well.

He arose the kind that has the big beautiful blue think of that rosebush and maybe this rosebush has flowers that have the mixed Crimson and ivory type flower on it fantastic early. Could you just take a moment and envision that rosebush okay what you see in your mind that will probably what you saw was just an individual beautiful flower right you probably were this thinking of that beautiful rose but you probably weren't thinking of was rosebush thorns and the leaves but in actuality the leaves and forms constitute more of the actual rosebush. I said, think of a rosebush you think of a flower because the flower is the part that catches your interest whatever it is that catches your interest is what we tend to see and psychologist have taught us that we tend to distort and therefore knowing what we see, but how we remember the events of our lives.

What this means is if you're depressed easier mind's eye is looking for the reasons that you're depressed.

We like to make sense of the world.

And so if you're depressed.

Your tendency is to look at your life and go nothing good ever happens for me. So you look at every little bad thing. Which of course makes you even more despondent as to what God wants to do is change our vision. It is the nature of the power of the gospel and for us when we get stuck and worry what he wants to do is essentially turn our sites toward something else. It was interesting.

Most of the time. Most sermons and most the time we talk about worry will say things like, well, don't worry because most of the things that you worry about will never come to pass.

And that's absolutely true. One of the things is so futile and diabolical about worry is that we think all this type things these things in our imagination that never come true.

As we spend our energy worrying and dreading them and it's a miserable feeling and most of it never actually happens.

It's actually not the way the Bible speaks about addressing worry is not really that God comes to us in his word and says don't worry, they're not really going to be any any troublesome things that happen. In fact, that's not the story of the Bible at all. The story is more like Joshua taken the people into the promised land with the battle after battle and we looked at this tax where Joshua takes people takes his people into the promised land and pretty soon you discover that they have to really fight in the promised land, but God is with them, so I Joshua chapter 1 and the great motivational speaker. God gives to Joshua he says to him.

Joshua one verse five. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I'll be with you so I say no to stand against you is to say you have to face some real files.

You have some real battle some real trouble but he said I'll be with you not leave you or forsake you strong and courageous usual causes people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them the taken the promised land battle got to be a piece of cake and say all the troubles in the he says instead. I am with you in a mighty way.

What God does in the mystery of his grace is. He comes to you a thousand different ways by the presence of the Holy Spirit to let you know is with you. Who can understand all the ways of God.

But this is surely who he is a God who, as long as Windows world allows us to experience the troubles common to this world and yet never leaves us and never forsakes us and turns our attention to the greatness of his grace and I were reflecting on this text. This weekend talking about examples a winded God open up our eyes to something in the midst of troubles and one of the stories that came back was one that many of you heard before when and was pregnant with little Abby.

We were away. We are out of town at the beach and she started having some scary symptoms. We called a gynecologist friend of ours describe what was happening and he said well she could be miscarried and you know how immediately just all the swirling fears and worries.

Enter your heart symbol. Should we go to the hospital. He said well you're in an area that might at community Hospital might not have real quality ultrasound machine and you might go and they might not be able to see the heartbeat. Even if there is one. I don't know if it'll help you to go but and I talked about. She said I want to go and then it was little and we agreed it would be better for me just to stay back with Bennett and and so and drove herself to the hospital to have be examined and see if we can figure out what was happening and on the way. She later told me she was driving to the hospital. The Lord spoke to her.

She said she heard very plainly that the Lord spoke to her heart and said I'm going to give you this baby twice and she said a piece settled in on her heart that was just absolutely supernatural. She went and she had the visit to the hospital and sure enough they work hard on the ultrasound to try to find heartbeat and they could not and so she drove herself back having learned only that the machine that the hospital could not find heartbeat and she came back and reported this to me and I saw a piece on her face and I could almost not believe as she told me what the Lord is said to and she said no, they didn't see the heartbeat.

I know the Lord spoke to me about this baby is going give this baby to us twice in the baby is going to be fine. And so that was it and I don't member what month we were in what we grant in the pregnancy. Abby was born healthy little girl and she turns 21 this month and we always had assumed that what the Lord meant was I gave this baby at conception and I will give you this baby when she's born but little less than couple years after she was born for very hard time in our lives, and was driving down the road in a car ran full speed to stop sign and broadsided the station wagon and destroyed the station wagon and turned it flipped it over and giant jagged massive metal came down in the middle of the back seat and miss little Abby in her car seat by inches and she was hanging upside down in the car the middle of Buena Vista Rd. that was leaking fuel until finally somebody was brave enough to crawl in and get the little baby out of the car and we took Abby to hospital along with Dan and well and had some injuries. Abby didn't have a scratch and after we made it through the trauma. The spirit spoke to and said I told you I'm going to give you this baby is peace that passes understanding when necessary machine doesn't show heartbeat.

Because if God can take what you see what you hear and change it into what the eyes of the spirit that all of your worries will melt away right in today's teaching you see what I see from the series. No worries Alice back with us here in the studio.

Do you see what I see it's all about living a worry free life, which are closing thought our perspectives are memories the way we see the world can too often get distorted.

We can have judgments of what we expect to see we can find that only only our particular interest carry us into the way that we going to see something, but what God wants to do to cure our worries is to open up our eyes and let us see more the way he sees to really see our lives accurately. We would need to be able to see all of the ways that God is at work providing in the natural. I can see that they know, but the spiritual I can in the Holy Spirit is here to help.
