God's will is to reveal something in the doctor 20 evidences of your life is in turmoil could be good news from God.
Spiritual celebrating. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the urban alternative.
We've all learned recently how easily our idea of normal life turned upside down. But in this classic sermon last presented over seven years ago. One New Year's Day, Dr. evidences, even though the world can offers any real and lasting hope for the future with God. Our eternity is secure. It's during these shaky times that we can stand firm on God's unshakable promises. Let's join him as he presents a message titled a whole lot of shaking going on.
Second Corinthians chapter 1 verse six is for your comfort and salvation of comfort which is in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer when he was firmly grounded.
Knowing that you share is about so also show is about comfort. For we do not want you to be unaware of our election which came to us in Asia, that we were murdered simply beyond our strength so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, we have a sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, he on whom we have set all, and he will deliver before that same book. Verse 16 therefore we do not lose heart.
But the man is decaying yet man is being renewed day by day for light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison the things which are seen things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not returned and then James chapter 1 verse nine, the brother of humble circumstances glory in his high position that the rich man glory in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he passes away. The sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed. So too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away. Paul has said here that even though getting on the outside. You are becoming younger on the inside. He said this is the law would manage the key. Paul said but I'm getting younger on the inside. Even though I am paying getting old on the house for this. This perspective of all was getting younger going through affliction that we get hold when you get more rest perishing getting secret. I have learned to look on the thing. See because of things that are seen passing away about a missed me is what I'm looking strikes midnight got only inside, although I'm outside looking for something else that is one thing that cannot be seen have a spiritual perspective suggest to you that to be a way to get you gotta change what you look but don't get me wrong I'm not saying you did not say like it's not like it's not real.
I'm not saying going to some sort of did not know I am saying you have to look beyond questions on how you look beyond the reality of your pain beyond the reality of your loneliness. Beyond the reality of the struggle. After all, it's real beyond first of all what you are looking you can see a situation or circumstance, personal problems, you can see it all you see is what you see you are not saying anything.
You can see that you are not seen to be seen beyond what you see can see that you want to be seen. Did you see is what you see you saying to be seen on see what you see. You will be able to see all the parents see you when God will continuity in your world when it's not there anymore God is to some suite unless you understand all you do is read what you just saw, because you connection that is something else beyond what not to leave the people out of Egypt situation where you came across as a concrete victory situation something until he went to trick bag is not much of a sacrifice. When you got the problem is you can see with this you can see it with the physical problem. We don't make the jump from the physical to the spiritual we stay with the physical and, therefore, stay frustrated, stay mad, stay angry stay irritated because we stay in a row that we no longer obligated to look in Hebrews chapter 1211. This passage verse 25 he says to it that you do not refuse him who is speaking for all skaters when they used him on earth. Moses Mike/only escape who turn away from him wants us from showing the man but is promising yet once more shake the earth but also the heaven.
This expression yet once more.
Notice the removing of those things which can't be shaken and created things. Things which can be shaken may remain, since we have an unshakable kingdom kingdom that cannot be shaken.
Show gratitude, by which we make God an acceptable service with reverence would say anything. Supplements when God shapes things in your physical rental is to reveal something in the indivisible. When we on the trench and read a passage like Matthew 24. But since we worldwide was when you hear about all of our people. We see is when I will not only will the city we met with the fact that we can really mess you in the coming of Jesus Christ number one number two unification of Europe that's already happened. Number three. Which of the 1940 becoming a nation again you have lot of people in the lab CNN who couldn't make it at the minute it happens. You understand that your redemption draws now that the Lord is the goal based on God.
Well now the prophetic table you understand something, something spiritual is going would you kill a baby's baby boy to you so God was doing something and you begin to begin the spiritual, not Dr. Evans will come back with more about looking beyond what we can see in a moment that's coming up after this reflection on 40 years of God's faithfulness.

This is the Old Testament. Exodus 20 is repeated again in Deuteronomy chapter 5 God came down the mountain and show the amount the Bible says there was thunder and lightning stuff was flashing and the people said we we always saw the physicals, God said company. Guess what they think they said no you go in and tell us what God said we said you know God says to Moses used in the back of it and you come to me and the Bible says and Moses went to God and God told Moses his secrets. If these create chaos in your life is not an attention situation is great news.
You got you thinking your nation is greatly show gratitude because something in the spiritual one is bad so you say you scared you struggling with it. You don't understand it and you don't want to do some measure to give thanks social gratitude makes this spring the worse the contractions get together.

Draw near to whether me about the weather Channel during install refuse him speaking on to the man because you say you speaking like you speak just because lightning cloudy and everything is God told Israel will reveal to you my glory. I want to show you that God is when you cook, you have the time the timer goes off when you anticipate being ready.

On top of what not going away, always looking beyond the problem. The things you can see I'm ascertaining the spiritual purpose in this until you make the connection that there is a spiritual purpose as much is it because of the struggle as much as it hurts you delay you change, you should go forward. One you because you're now looking at the spiritual cause of missing Lord what you want to what your purposes through this.
