So much Dr. Tony Evans talked about ways we can win spiritual battles. We thought we already lost boys again.
This is the alternative Tony have another speaker, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative, you win some and you lose it's true enough in everyday life. But today Dr. Evans explains how spiritually even the battles we lose can be turned into victories.
Let's join him. I want to talk about recovering what the enemy is stolen, probably in this world who have been ripped off of some that's in the spiritual realm that may be affect you in the physical realm. But really, the ripoff occurred in the spiritual realm.
And if you don't get you looking at all the wrong place's to get jail stuff back that has been stolen. In first Samuel chapter 30 as the book of first Samuel concludes David is in. I'm territory on the run from Saul when David and his men came on the third day. Verse one says the malachite had been arranged on glad the Gulag would file Women. All that was both small and great, carried the ball up and went their way was already on the world. That world got rated one day everything look and find that one day everything looks like it's going be okay next day that is arrayed in his home world and that of his men were turned upside down looking when they were looking and stole it says all, both large and great bird with fire, so what we're talking about is total destruction that world is collapsing right in front of their eyes what they had built up what they had developed was now gone.
And like any good thief. It was taken a long way away and they didn't know where to find what we have here is a major theft that occurs, David and his men come back to see that there while the collapse verse three was burned with fire wives and sons and daughters had been taken captive and David and the people were with him, their voices and wept until there was no strength in the cry goes on to say verse six all, David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him that you already can cry no more. You did not already on what he has done now. Your friends have turned against you because… Now the Fogelberg is not the focal with you when that mess they had to find somebody to take David if it what you take here we would've been here and it became because messed up by the situation and if you don't know when you find the closest person to play on the verse six is a very potent line but David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
The Lord, saying, these crooks who have ripped me off and show them don't miss that question asking God show this person on this group will ban the problems that's ripped off all and show them what is he asking that question. I don't want to waste. I don't know. I don't know where have they so you tell me to get back what the enemy is stolen. I don't know which way to go north or south, east or west don't know who they are and you tell me what to do in this bad situation when the enemy has ripped you off and you don't know what to do and you don't know anybody who can tell you what to do that because the Lord wants to be the only person who can direct you in the way that you want to go to go to God's presence and here's a word from God. Verse eight God says the David pursue for you will surely overtake them, and you will surely rescue all the way. He inquired of the Lord all the way to get application about what he ought to do about his loss and went to what the enemy is stolen.
Once this now watch this. He says pursue them and you will find them and you will rescue what you loss. Okay, what's his name that's insufficient information. David wants to know should I go after them and will have fun and asked the question God says go after them you will find, but that's insufficient information because out of nowhere and I don't know where they went. I don't know. All I know my stuff is going. God rarely gives you all the data upfront rarely ever now and then God may give you the full picture.
But God didn't like the Bible that way the Bible was not written with all the information in Genesis 1 the Bible was written by 40 different authors over 1600 years and is an unfolding of the drama of God. God wants this now most holy falls more information as you move with the information he's given you. In other words, David. If you don't get out you not going to get more white football but we haven't dealt with some we wait for God to give us additional when we haven't done much with information on the fun in that he has given us.
Jesus put it this way, all will be given but he that does not have that what you have will be taken away if you know you Revelation and the nation give you all will be coming and says pursue that your instruction pursue which way I'm going to only tell you a little bit want to know right right now why would you walk by faith, not site what you learn to walk in and not because you see the in all the time. People want to know. Show me the conclusion that God most often works through the process.
I will taking this step lead me to the conclusion that is most often not realized in the Bible it is in motion that God reveals himself to give them some information but it specific go after them. He's been given a promise okay, what is now the promises you will get back and I would be in the verse verse eight says you shall surely rescue it all is called the promises of God. But what the promises of God don't always give you it gives you what we read the promises we don't get how we got together and God has a million different ways. See that's why saints, you can't come and ask me and I can come and ask you how God is going to say I can't answer that question.
I can tell you based on the word what God says he will do. I give you that. But what I can't tell you and nobody else can tell you only God can tell you is how he because one person is not how he died before I give you back your laws. If you don't give somebody else back that he wants to tell you that directly because he wants a relationship which you that is not predicated on what he's done for my testimony is simply God did it for me to encourage you that God can still do it but what a testimony is not designed to do is tell you how God's will do it for you buddy give them a promise you will get it back you go go ride with promise. Dr. Evans will have more encouragement for us about that promise from God returned shortly after these words when life throws us a curve ball will look for something or someone bring us positive distraction.
Well, God is forced to experience job showing us, so in the midst of our chaos and confusion can bring life can give you comfort, comfort her movie television show what they can give you rest.

I have the contact information for you again after part two of today's lesson here is Dr. Evans. He gets up on his loss with hundreds of men and pursue he went looking for all of his problem.
What he lost along the way to an Egyptian and made him bring in David 812 and three days and three nights.
Verse 13 and sent him to whom do you all where are you from, he said, young Egypt assignment. The Amalekite and my master left me behind when I felt sick. We made a raid on the that was wrong to Judah and the God of Caleb and we are glad what that boy on that information will just pray make a way out of no way you up in Gilead Friday morning Star UNA below the latter-day prayer God said so go get what he is taken for God to bring God's what the enemy is taken so sorry for so what does God do God gives him additional information. He now knows who verse 15 David said will you bring me down to this brain and he said to me that you will not kill me into the hands of my master and I will bring you down. So what God wants is there going somewhere what God's way to sing. To get back what is lost is given along the way to be a black house. God bless you Joe stop along the way. Somebody that went well and we give them some food down there looking for my blessed devil started present down and skip them looking for my the chart walk in all these along the way, that was not about that boy that would make you think you that was not about that boy that make you think it can lead you that was nothing about that boy that makes you think you, but because it was welling somebody who was worse than him now that an angel on the way and not just from God that God has put the thickly provision along the way have the right information and the right knowledge and the right direction, but they don't look the plot because it being a blessing you don't throw away people who don't look like they have much to offer that may be the voice of God to get back what the devil has taken from you all say that brought the Stallman spoils. But when we were told that the amount of time just take stuff from six way with all that the amount of tax. From the and took stock from jota and writing places all over the world. What I'm trying to get is that when you get back what the dappled talk from you. Plus, we pray that God right now to know that what the stolen from you can dictate and add lawful you get all the clothing that's what I love the story of Jack in the beans on along came a man to train them some beans points To give up his cow was give up the productivity to achieve but he traded in for the beans. Jack means and the beings grew up into a stock that went up way into the sky.
Jack began stock when Jack got the install Jack and said will know what is well that night is used to living, but a giant came and killed and placed them in the sun. Jack was on his rep was really some jacks into the castle giant went to sleep.
That was a ghost that Woodland alternates picked up those down the bay install with mother based on bags of money, Jackson install Jack woke up follow phone now the blood of an Englishman going to take this job being changed by the giant down the bay install the giant was chasing much bigger than he was asked and down the bay install stop and the giant broke loose with his now been destroyed. That's a good note for today God planted some many years ago 2000 planted C the baby son of God sending in place and God.
It because you with all spiritual and license the Bible says that.… All the problems down the Bible the blood of the Lamb was the price that build the giant.
