Christ's deposition of Dr. Tony Evans is even though we may not like hard times. Sometimes we need you sequence of letting God you've never seen God.

This is the alternative with Dr. Tony-author, speaker, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative when her circumstances turned sour. We can't wait for them to change. That's only natural. Today Dr. Evans talked about an unnatural way to think of a crisis, and the benefits it brings to your relationship with the Lord. Let's join him rushed into the house in a panic state.

His wife looked at him and said all he said. Trouble is, is that what you will said that the carburetor it won't work. She said what he said. That's why she said that you have a mechanical bone in your body.

You know nothing about automobiles. You know the problem with the call, he said it's in the swimming pool.

So I guess they warning the carburetor swimming pool say what he said one was true to the carburetor.

He was a lot worse shape. A lot of us right now. More messed up than we look we might simply say that one of the carburetor when a holy life is important, but you can dress it up and fix it up and tweak it up talk right lay it out make it look like the water covering you about how to handle your crisis. Crisis.SKU here in a crisis over budget crisis crisis everywhere how to deal with your crisis. Let's talk about the anatomy of a crisis. What what is a Christ's basis is the situation in your life you can't fix it right now to table you crisis.

If you have a situation in your life you can ask you not fix it. You don't know anybody else.

In other words, there is no solution in sight, either from you or from somebody else to fix what's wrong please come in all shapes, all forms of all sizes. Like a lot of ways that family crisis their financial crises that crises that have to do with family that spiritual crises but the thing that makes a crisis.

If you can't make you don't know anybody. If you and you know that's a problem that's not a crisis a crisis is when the problem gets so bad you And apparently nobody else can. They could. It would've been a long time ago. Life is full of Christ were introduced to a man in the Bible. Second Kings has a crisis management. Let's learn about Naaman and learn how God wants to cure your crisis Naaman of the Army of the King of Naaman's.

He has right. The captain has a professional success is achieved, the Army, he has now positional's army force to be reckoned with the executive chair on the say was a great man with his master respected name and not only had think he had a reputation about new calling him a great man and the people respected him, so he was great when you look at it. He was great. Naaman is great that he has a great reputation with something else about Naaman. It says the Lord gave religion is a religious man because the law of freedom walk through this plan. With Army on some level I don't know what the children had devotions. Barely that's not given to us, but what we are told is God's will that was some sort of religious connection. He had things going yeah right reputation religion were told. Finally, value with this man at all.

Working for him you would call him a success when you become president of the company about money anymore everybody looks at you know your name bowels when you come by highly respected church every time the door opens and like most the last line in the verse messes things up is. Don't you wish, like didn't have any button.

Believe it or not it would it would people only got but at the end of the clause you frankly get excited when excited, does not take that conversation downhill fast.

The patient religion the washer was a leper right thing going for him.

He was on which many tropical disease for which there was no cure for which he became isolated in a crisis that can mess up all the good stuff going for you was a Christ's.

Nobody can fix the world at your hand, but would not back shows up when I crisis shows up under my everything you like to be on one knows that you got from the matter because you Christ's. You always know when you're in a crisis because the thing that you matter don't matter as much when you shall not problems that you got a headache that does not shake up the world a brain tumor will change the world crisis is a problem. The author wants us to know this man facing a crisis a crisis is like quicksand.

It keeps sucking you deeper and deeper. It doesn't get any better, no matter how you called it. Try to fix it.

Try to solve it. It still. When the function of the Titanic hit the iceberg. I can assure you it did not matter any longer. How wealthy they were or what sweeping what you when I got on the about your money determine what sweet what number you rat the rich people could stay up there and hobnob up there.

The poor people work to be burned relevant only to the people on the ship save the lost.

Because when you iceberg a crisis it all will all the stuff that use the matter because I crisis you Wonder what else you can fix it and it is all.

It used to make you feel good about. You can always pick it up when a person is in a crisis because when they talk about the things that use the matter they now change the phrase to say it doesn't matter anymore because something else matters.

He wants leper and he could do nothing to stop the section when I was in India I saw modern-day leprosy first hand is a little different. The biblical leprosy of the New Testament, but the same devastating effect. My son was overseas. He went to a leper colony administered to lepers isolated, ostracized from the community because nobody could fix this problem. I am well aware that I am talking to many in crisis you concealed it you smiled at Rick's.

You tried to ignore it. But when you get along with you it's clear you in a Christ's. You can pick up when a person crisis because it affects the attitude you just thought they were being mean, when really you get the overflow of them being in the situation again crisis you just thought they were just having depression. No there in a crisis and they don't know how to get out so I'm giving secrets.

The answer for Christ's. If you don't hear anything else here this when you get a crisis situation you can't fix and no one else could fix what you run into is a God to give you a deeper experience with him. Dr. Evans will explain how we can turn the bad news of a crisis into good news comes back in just a moment but first I want to tell you about a brand-new book, Tony is written that goes hand-in-hand with the lessons and practical principles we been learning about this week.
