Meets God's life little sidetrips happen. Reason Dr. Tony Evans says they won't end until that purposes accomplish this is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative.

Sometimes it seems like the end of one detour life lands is right at the beginning of another. Today Dr. Evans will let us in on the reason for that as he continues his look at the life of Joseph. Let's join him in the 39th chapter of Genesis was originally designed to take because, for the destiny myself on my way back from Denver, Colorado, and we got on a plane was a straight arrive in Dallas an hour and 45 minutes to fly. The pilot came on and said that all schools in the Dallas area and we have been rerouted. We won't be going to Dallas we going to be landing in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City was not in my plans. I have not requested it anticipated about it thought about it all wanted somebody else was in control and the somebody who was in control told me I was going well thought I was and we wound up being in Oklahoma City not only what we city, but we will start on an airplane, a place I didn't want to be stuck inside it's going to be 15 minutes 20 minutes.

Came back on and said don't be 15 minutes or 20 minutes stuck on a plane in a place I didn't plan to be circumstances I could not control. Finally, we were told I was on the back. We could leave Oklahoma City and I could get back to my destiny which was Dallas, Texas, and so the plane got on the runway, buckle your seatbelt will have you in Dallas in just a few moments the plane began to take all its loud and went back to the time and the pilot holes have shown up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and so we were not able to take off so we going to be 15 to 20 minutes long 15 to 20 minutes and we will stop in Oklahoma City. We thought we were going to God, took a deep set things up to us we going to take all my seatbelt, but this time the plane took all finally I'm going to reach my best this, the pilot comes back on the new and I have some bad news is that we the bad news is that on the dates available and will be another five minutes before we can anticipate pulling up to a day to say, I am spiritually take off. At this point because that is now turned into a seven. I have been placed into some of you feel like that's the story of your life you plan you in a holding pattern. You don't know when this play called destiny of the today I want to talk to you about how you know you know that you're getting detour on to the main job when he was 17 years old for you to know that you want to stay close to God. You so that you don't wind up living a detoured life and never reaching.

It is my mission meets God's purpose when your preparation with God's purpose time connects with time. You are now moving from detour to destiny God's purpose while developing a person is prepared for the purpose. The purpose God creates all destiny. The problem occurs when God creates a progress and is not ready when they all ration to prepare them for the purpose so you have a dangling out here with a ready person to fulfillment because preparation has not been allowed to take place which elongates the story today is going to be for years old. We started when he was 17, Chapter 41 verse 26 years old when the because you don't go from detour to destiny Street to look for that will actually help you get a little tool to destiny onto the place God has for you.

The place God's taking the three things that come out of the story of the life of Joseph, but if you are serious about your relationship.

Not serious about his purpose for you. You know, destiny. When God disappoints you. Just when you was coming through for you and I didn't expect that you expected the hallelujah chorus Noel when God points you like he was about to deliver you look at chapter 40 verse 14.

Keep me in mind when it goes well with you and please do me a kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house is jail was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews and even here.

I have done nothing that should have put me into this Dr. J. John balance drain die. And when you get delivered mentioning jail wrong and you are going to be situated and sent to HBO you remember me when you get God's word for life day finally arrived. God's contact who can speak verse 23. Jeff Pacheco clearly did not remember Joseph, but forgot. You know you are to me and to let you go. You went You get in a bad situation. So how can we change your perspective when it feels like God is disappointed in this. Dr. Evans will come back to tell us when he returns in a moment. Stay with us.

Here's Tony life principle that when you really got you taking you this situation to change how he saw what it looks like you and points you feels great question.like brick look like you get ready to deliver me like you going to work it out. Just sit on the God disappoints you actually destiny watershed credit, which with the people you know the money you have the power you have the background the prestige and get back to you you you know and you are responsible for giving because when God wants to have all the glory. And he wants to get all the no variety chapter 1, Paul said God took us to the point of so that we would learn to trust in our sales but to trust him. The only one who can God bring you to the point statement. Let me correct that. Let me fix it up because we've all said wrong, God will not put more than you think you can get that straight the Bible to say that there is a time when God will put you you will put more on you you is what he wants to strip you when he wants to break down the fish and see you now we know what we have we got disappoints look like it was coming through for you to increase your on human good news because when you contact in your money can and you are so long and guess what, he gets the chance to be God.

Number two, number one is when God disappoints you.

Number two, which is related to it is when God skips you want to disappoint. Then he skips you all again.

Chapter 41 verse 1 to 4 years that Pharaoh had a dream, and behold, he was sitting just before all this come about to happen jail for another two years. Let me be 2828 the tule and the time for Tuesday's not know when this plaintiff take all you want to talk about playing catch of the car and driving to Dallas overnight camping with you on the top back to walk away, even though he had not given you a way of escape.

Know when you gotta wait for not two years later Pharaoh has a dream.

Joseph has never met Pharaoh knows there will Joseph have no connection with dreams going to sleep dream seven dreams about some sleep. When a man should be between Joseph and so is something okay with vocabulary words that you should use it all if you use apologize to you and lock chance non-Christian words, you can control chance could not be controlling the events and not all what you will and to call God. Three cops when the two years already. God, because two years before the dream but I need to for Joseph to develop full dependency and press just now in the morning.

His spirit was trouble, please call for all the magicians of Egypt all the wise men and told them his dreams, but there was not one who could interpret them to Pharaoh, the crme de la crme he called magicians and the smart folk, why is my dream.

What does it mean I because wants this when God is sending something come up with Dr. Tony Evans reminding us that the answers of life can only be found in the author of life, more force on the subject tomorrow.
