What this says Dr. Tony Evans talks about the benefits of adding your very life and celebrating. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the urban alternative when you look around and take stock of what's going on in your life. Dr. Evans says your perception depends on your perspective.

Today he explains how we can see life from a more peaceful point of view. Let's join him.

Whether it's within the heart of all of the church of the broader society troubles today, so perhaps that is the word Torah voltage is a drama name for God Jehovah shalom translation is the Lord's peace is translation. The Lord's peace the book of Judges, knowing the book will help you understand the passage the previous book Joshua Joshua have led the people into the promised land that now I'm came in like having been delivered from Egypt late, but in the land of promise.

They were experiencing chaos make you can arrive at the place God wants you and still have drama we read in verse one of Judges chapter 6, the son of Israel that what was evil in the sight of the Lord and the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian seven years they rebelled against God, and the consequence of their rebellion was enslavement to that which they were supposed to hold in slavery, they rebelled against God they did evil in the sight of the Lord shall God be with him instead of letting when the promise verse six, Israel was brought very well because of many and bring them low because of the law and bring the angel of the Lord, and sits down under the oak name Gideon verse 11 for weed wine press in order to save it from the media for when they are introduced to a man named Gideon and the angel of the Lord says to him, the Lord is with you all.

Gideon said to him in verse 13.

If the Lord is with us, then why is all this happening to us and where all the miracles which our father told us about snakes did not the Lord bring us out of Egypt, but now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hands of big adventure? If God is for me way is not an honest he really answers his own question. I'm not sure whether you knew it or not, but enhances it at the end of version 13, he says, but now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand. Okay, so here it is. God is with us in the general sense because with children, but in the specific sentence that is in my, he is with you when you are with you. If you are not with him, you will not experiencing him being with you, me, us, the Lord looked at him and said in verse 14. Go in your strength. That is, with the ability that given you and deliver Israel from the hand of Midian have I not sent you because every man to an extraordinary task, and he was going to use the same man who had questions or did any of this recently I got official I got sure I'm going to get myself deals I have to be sure verse 17. If I may have found favor in your sight, show me a sign that it is you who is speaking to me. I need to be sure I'm not Freeman. I need to be sure this is for real. Be sure this is not a mirage. Start this is you go get me different unleavened bread to get some brawl makes himself a student he puts the student down from the name of the Lord.

Verse 21 and the angle the Lord put out the end of the staff that was in his hand and touch me and the unleavened bread and fire sprang up from the rock I consume meat and unleavened bread. Then the angel of the Lord vanished from the site, while he brings immediately, unleavened bread, the broth puts it down with no fire law that is Lord and not only that it might not is nothingness and the angel disappears again you decide yet. This is real. He asked God what is to verify his presence as we ask. Verify that this is you talking sometime new national is if God exists me. It is real. It is Memorex. I am not sure so I need certainty here because this is too serious. When Gideon verse 22 saw that he was the angel of the Lord is that Alaska old Lord God. For now, I have seen the angel of the Lord face to face to the end of the Lord of the famous Lord God, God being manifested in the visible form. The Lord said to him, here it is, peace be to you. Do not fear you shall not die what angel tell them that you could live and see God sent the word back on then Gideon built an altar there to the Lord and named it. Here it is Jehovah shalom the Lord is peace so I raised the question definite.

What is peace we take what peace is not peace is not a truce.

Peace is not simply cease-fire because a lot of people cease-fire after live in the Cold War. You may not be frightened fussing, which are made all day just not talk any junk you think the Cold War equals peace versus troops. The cease-fire, the word shalom means all complete all well be is to have things in order, or the same as we say no more drama. This is well-being. In spite of circumstances because me and Don on the same page.

Isaiah 57 verses 20 to 21 says that sin interrupts peace. It says there is no peace for the wicked, and those were in rebellion against God. Just like the millions were allowed to overrun Israel. God allows hell to overrun us when we are disconnected from him by sin. If you are unwilling to address the sin don't look for the piece you can you can get distractions, you can create distractions to help you forget how bad things really but peace is when you don't have to create artificial distraction and unwillingness to address the sin is a refusal to receive peace to see God putting together in your heart home no church society. Jehovah shalom the Lord is peace misquoted, then save the money and speaks the same position is peace.

The powers peace the job and speech relationship is peace. Since Jehovah shalom the Lord speaks so that raises the question how do I get it I got it, but how do I get it because I needed you needed.

We needed I may not be able to change my circumstances right now.

But how do I get the inner well-being to deal with it, and behold how I get the ability to have mama drama the same way.

So I raised the question, how did Gideon get. We just looked at your do you got 1 Simple Way yet it's profound he got peace when he knew the Lord was with him. He has not yet caught the Midianites solve the problem of the Midianites many nights are still an issue, but it will worship service problem has been solved. Japanese cookies when the Midianites unites us and praises God for peace is God is not because in such a constraint, praising God because God has shown up in this situation it is the realization of the divine presence that gives him the you got whatever you want to go spend whatever you want to spend. If God is not in the middle you may still get the flexion beats more from Dr. Evans from the spiritual way to deal with drama in our lives when he continues her message just a moment. Stay with us in so many ways God is demonstrating his faithfulness to me into this ministry over these 40 years, you know, there were times when we just weren't sure we were going to make it. We got down to our last paycheck for our staff. After that there was no money to pay anyone. I remember as having a special prayer time and asking God to intervene and then out of nowhere a donors heart was touched and they wrote us a note said God placed it on my heart to send you this gift and was able to sustain us a while longer until we were able to build.

I praise God for 40 years of his favor on us. The goals of this ministry has always been to provide the tools and resources to help listeners like you dig deeper into the subject matter.

It already got them got a limit of 300 some information. He is an inside scoop rated the last question my question? Question how do I get to know since him being there is the key to peace how I get to know that he's there.

Romans chapter 8 we read verses five through seven. For those who are according to the flash set their mind on the things of the flesh, but those are according to the spirit of things of the spirit. For the set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.

Because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God does not subject itself to the law of God is not even able to.

He says if you want to please you gotta set your mind, you need a mindset if you want me and paces by divine evidence that comes with all the flash is an separation from God's peace talking to Christians, from my point of view. The man perspective. Perspective, you have to be following the gotta be mannish.

The Bible calls the carnally minded that with the mindset of the spirit God's point of view. Nowhere saying this. The Bible is God's point of view God's view of the matter is the spirit, mind you, because you will use. See if you really that's what you will you mindset the frame thinking that you operate by must be spirit that is God's point of view, and with God's point of view comes God's presence and with God's presence comes like and if you want God's presence. You must have his mindset. If you don't think that you do not have his presence. If you present you do not express his life. If you wanted to have his life like that mindset.

I set my clock; there was a time when I had sent Michael if I wanted to get up early but now my clock totally because it's been said interim I got inside, and tells me to get because I got so used to operating by staff is not externally is not just a frame of reference because automatically wake up just coming from setting it intentionally, and then I begin to operate because I operating that way you operating in the spirit you got intentionally set it until you got you are billed and to respond that way. So many of us have been so well that it's simple right just the rebellion goes all that way." Relate until you learn the get up to God's point of view and we you get one of you it will be that way. That will be your reaction, you will know what your reaction when you react that way will become aware when you go back all on the God of your benefit concert and orchestra warm-up and listen to all the discord about them is trying to get everything tweaked. Got a bunch of new ways sound like all of a sudden out of the shadows comes the conduct with the state and he taps it in the noisy discord comes and he raised and he rings out his arms and all of a sudden that which was chaos before becomes loneliness. He shows up as a bunch of noise Relate anything, doing nothing and nothing can with nobody else but we and makes his presence known and rated: now becomes on the same page. It makes it brings blessing because it was that way when the conduct saying what was happening in the real problem is making music with the conduct stage, wondering why, when we came in wonder why we can have good music in the world, but we want the conduct does make an appearance and leave again.

He wants to run the office and provisions.

Dr. Evans will help us unpack the meaning of that word when he talks about why God is called the Lord who sanctifies right now though he's back with his final thought for today question is do you want peace. Only one person to Jehovah shalom, but he only gives it on his terms.
