Dr. Tony says that's what we get when God's power invades our earthly situation is celebrating faithfulness.

This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the urban alternative for too many people.

There's church life and real life.

Two different realities that weaken our faith and perpetuate our problems. Let's try Dr. Evans as he explains how all that can change when God becomes our banner of victory today is Jehovah nisi chapter 17.

Remember the names of God most typically the situations in life goals people found themselves in that needed God's divine intervention. Usually they were problems. These problems need intervention and so a name of God would be assigned or God would use that problem to reveal himself. So today is my past problems. The good news today of God have a name for whatever there is a name for God that is applicable to the crisis that you are in the people of God were discouraged, you always know when you discouraged. It you always know when your faith in God has waned in the program that can be made clear by the amount of complaining you do, complaining as a way we all complain from time to time but complaining as a modus operandi that is the way you are flowing operating by complaints it's normative to complaint is an indication of a waning of faith God's people in Texas. Chapter 17 admin complaining because of the lack of water when they had camped at the MA complaining that God provided the highlight of the complaint is verse seven when they said at the end of the verse is the Lord on where is God when you need it most. That was the question that was on the people's mind because things were driving the water. Things will drive in life does get dressed, sometimes you need some refresh this problem with the one just like life is one thing gets fixed. Another thing breaks like that what you know you pay one bill and another bill goes crazy, you know just as soon as you think you you you got over the Hump Ave., Hill getting you the claimant while the scenario is pointing out in chapter 17 verse eight that Amalek came and fought against Israel as a Rugged Desert Pl. near Mount Laurel, whether water source has been very low.

God's people were weary and wouldn't you know what. Now they've got a deal with black showing up and wants to fight Amalek wants to resist the just what it looks like things got better against the water. Things go south again and it looks like the Lord is not on this well they attack Amalek is from the line of Esau so please were people who were connected to the Jews coming to the line of Esau so Moses says to his understudy. Joshua shows Lynn for us, like tomorrow I will station myself with the staff. God in my hand.

Joshua did as Moses told them both to the top.

It came about when Moses held Israel prevailed when he let his hand down Amalek interesting. The problem was, what is the situation got worse because what is now prevailed evil that seeks to keep you from achieving the purposes of God Almighty.

The spiritual became, the more you begin to lose in the earthly situation he was battling so what did he do look at the first the first says they install put it under him and he sat on her supporting his main one on one side of what will be on the bus were steady until sunset gets what he did. He had two brothers with one name and one name her and you know that was the hold's job was to the spiritual God because they if the spiritual due to the situation will get better I get rid of the spiritual Israel would not like it is you're connected to it. Some stuff gets happy when you want to quit when you want to quit and don't want you in your life God work in you don't want to pray, do not want to don't want to get a Bible and you and you become an things got too happy any everybody lost because people. They also engaged in the fight that winning or losing had nothing to do with the fact that we know the power of positive thinking. Terminating will beat me, beat him all that mapping will but that we had Israel prevailed his arms were down prevailed, no matter how determined they were critically that the reason why Amalek will go away just because you think it's what you doing that will determine the outcome is important to play down here what you are doing is never sufficient good for evil eye to the problem is many of the problems with facing have to do with demons using folk so so you are correct when you say you a number of the devil expression so you what your physical is not addressing that you may push away for a while, you might manager for a while but you will unless heaven gets involved unless there is Joshua Ford on the ground. Moses went up to the mountain with support verse 13. The conclusion Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword you want right now. Verse 14 Moses you write this down in a memorial you recited Josh in other words putting on the record. Some trying to give us the record today in the record, I'm trying to give you this, when you're fighting your battles. Whatever battle bows that you're fighting you do two things, not one you give your best in the valley while holding up the battle and you get all the help you need to keep you as you wait overwhelmed, that which is right now overwhelming. You you maybe stance. I cannot guarantee that will be no ambulance. Amalek don't have to have you, but you gotta be on the mountain that must be that spiritual presence that commitment that will block out from wall to strike what I will write down in the book. I want to get rid of all, not part of why some of us lose and we will play well whatever we want to get rid half Emily most Amalek got to blot out like I want to fully deal with people associated with the situation see what we want to do is have a part-time victory like some of it Amalek. Why you want to blot out Emily is very important to blot out Amalek because she knew that if he did not get rid of Amalek would come. It would come back to this.

If you have cancer you would like a little piece of cancer hanging around and be all excited when we got most because it will come back with a vengeance. It will come back with a vengeance. I will block them out first 15 God tells Saul get rid Amalek tells of the person be 50 you get rid Amalek, and you get rid of all rid of most of but A few around six. Some trophies around but I did with Amalek got to get rid of all the perfume so that I could really with the church with the sacrifice and worship God.Saul. And Samuel said okay and obey the voice of the Lord your God would says obedience is better than worship and sacrifice all you weather for bragging right now. The man who killed Saul back because he did not follow God, the one who assisted suicide was from public when God says get rid of all the main don't come back with a vengeance block. I want to remove them.

I want to get rid of all be able because some of the evil it keeps coming as full-time evil we have legal rights.

Rights and now it makes you wonder why because I want to represent you from reaching God's purpose for your life. You know what a little bit of pornography. Just because you got. I want to blot out completely so that there is currently completely name it whatever it is that is upon you and what I'm trying to say is that the spiritual and the physical must be joint but not tinkering with more from Dr. Evans on why a personal victory isn't enough when he continues her message just a moment first so you can dig even deeper into today's subject and put the principles to work with the help of Tony's popular devotional experience the power of God's names.

Dr. Tony Tony patient showtimes also the Lord is going, the Lord Amalek from generation to generation. When air masses which you mess with me because I am your banner holding a banner which in this case was the rod of God's flag. Back then it could be an item in this case was the rod of God were bad about winning the glisten just like we have glistening on Alabama's glistening on the rod holding up the rod of God, meaning I'm going to operate underneath the bad operate underneath the banner. The banner is going to be over me. The banner is going to be my standard so that raises the question, what's your banner in my banner today, what exactly am I supposed to hold up to deal with my reality movies I saw that just blew my mind. I mean it's probably for me.

One of the greatest movies I've ever seen was the movie inception and conceptions about the dream world. This man could enter dreams and what made it intriguing was you enter dream and then he would enter the dreams dream when he entered the dreams dreams dream and then he entered the dreams dreams dreams dream had to send it into four levels of dreams number problem with that is reality got all confused dream world of only three worlds original. So the question is, what's real and what's not.

Dream world. Yes, to deal with his wife, whether she's really here.

So what created was a spinning top is any instrument designed to guide you to steer you, guide you and is in his pocket safe and just gets better and what slowdown within the dream world. But that he was in the real world time would be operate on the rail to keep spending how he measured reality like can get so confusing you don't know if you come in.

You don't know what you don't know what stuff just as Christ himself. Whether this is really something outside of you to measure you by which you will in reality and by which decisions will be made because you have the standard is objective right now what you're thinking right now. Are you feeling right now what you want right now you something you to you reality the standard that which God uses because he some of us are operating with the enemy thinking operating with the low some of us operating in falsehood, but we think we are operating not true but you just show temporary truth that must be a standard by which to operate and bring the Jesus Christ number 721 interesting story. The people rebelled against God's legs, poisonous quinces for their rebelled. God said to Moses, all will you Israel if they will open they will open everybody better.I made promises to do better next week because God will show all based on their own job. You and John will so land will there will will learn to make John 12 you want me three you are doing everything you're supposed to do on the ground unless you Jesus Christ writing by you, the spiritual battle and is just a standard by which you measure whether you're in reality God reality for just all reality it's just a good man doing the best you can know that your solutions to many problems day but got to get you on the Dalmatia hands to every so that you can stay pointed to Margie that you keep your focus on Jason's natural and bring about a change change change you your situation so that you have peace when you are not happy when you want joy when you are not equipped with the physical going out with women of all with all the law and not know which way to go but then I and if you show you which way to go pick up a few friends along the way and makes a way because it was to go back home go back to where she was right, go back home with you Can you was straight was it was like you now you doing well right now.
