Does God take you straight.

Dr. Tony Evans is God's detours will ultimately bless you that's not the end of the story.

She is not because you about this is the alternative with Dr. Tony ever authored speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative. God helps us grow into the people he wants us to be today. Dr. Evans explains he does that, in part because of what he wants us to do. Let's join him in the book of Genesis as he explains does not want straight line all from the thrill B and C and D and E you go from a to see you. Yes V God balances you around why is to develop your character. He wants to make you a better person and never know that without test test on circumstances that God causes all allow in order to develop a spiritual there.

The second reason for the detours of our message today that God is on his road to destiny to who he wants you to when you arrive at your death the way all you benefit others beyond yourself because you never about you look at chapter 50 of Genesis.

He says in verse 19 but Joseph said do not be afraid God's place as you, you meant for evil against me, but God meant it for good to bring about this result to preserve many people do not be afraid. I will work for you and your little ones. We comforted them and spoke to them. He said God to provide for you because your destiny is only about you now you understand God is always doing more than one thing that involves you, but because not only about a few different things in different places at different times until it's time for. Let's back up to chapter 40 verse 23.

Remember in the Bible I would know chapters written we added chapters in order to be able to find things quickly so you can come and read straight through, particularly the stories in the Bible verse 23 of chapter 40 says yes such cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot president's dream, cupbearer. Remember me to Pharaoh and the Comair gets in the situation where it look like God was your plan and the reverse. You and the exact answer, you will like this when God disappoints you discipline. She on purpose. Save the company's dream wasn't forgotten and present about elected not only in prison. It says he's in the dungeon.

The dungeon was all underneath the prison and is now having done nothing wrong person in a bad situation that God allowed verse one of chapter 41 at the end of two years that had a dream, and behold, he was standing by the not so you I will going on as a nightmare on Elm Street. A dream that arises in and you can understand something called the professionals to interpret the dreams verse eight in the morning.

Your spirit was troubled so he sent and called all the magicians of Egypt all the wise men told him his dreams, but there was not one could interpret them to Pharaoh. Okay. Stick with Joseph languishing in a prison prison called the dungeon. Well, Joseph is gray that keeps him up all night and troubled him and he calls the nationals to help them figure out his nightmare. Nationals can figure out a nightmare.

Joseph known Joseph knows about the cupbearer was present with Joseph Mello spoke of the day was. He put me in confinement in the house of the God spoke to me in the cheese breakup. We had a dream sing each one of his own dreams.

Verse 12 was the captain of the body God and we related to human dreams. T20 interpreted the court was on dream and happen to my office, but I thought the cupbearer's memory comes back Pharaoh who had a dream you can interpret is that you know I dream that was his Jewish kid in jail who interpreted my dream and it came out just as it happened, when the cupbearer remember children ready forgotten.

He remembered when it was God's time for a lookup to occur creative and slideshows Joseph to change any brings to remember single backup and people he brings it back to the cupbearer. Joseph wants to make a big point before the big points wanting the same and call Joseph and the dungeon where he had shamed himself changed his clothes and came to know which Mrs. Joe had absolutely no about the dream had never met was going on all by himself, but was his world changes his release from prison and was given a Shea and was to get this close changing his brand-new clothes verse 41 chapter 41 Joseph you all will all signet ring from his and put it on Joseph and called him in garments of fine linen and put the necklace around his neck on the second Shelley verse 43 and vapor claim before him bow me and he said all the land of Egypt.

24 ounce Joseph is the man drove the living God, Joseph has been the last with stuff He used his gifting and now he is out of the pit and in the pass. The problem today is most people are satisfied with that definition of blessing I got. Better job} how remember your blessing includes you, but it's not only about.

Look at chapter 45. The story continues now with his brothers, and here's what he says to his brothers who been now faced with. Joseph was now over them. Verse five of chapter 45 now. Do not be grieved, a lot angry with yourself because you sold me here, God sent me before you to preserve your life was old and why selling Don Wilton for you and God was sending me, me and God was preparing to use me me you were doing the best of me. Now that being that God so that God could send them to six years that will need to be before you to preserve you and keep you alive. A great deliverance on the same verse 11 that for you and you and your household. All you have been impoverished guests with the man says just sent me here to live in the house. He sent me to preserve you sent me here to benefit somebody other than myself.

Dr. Evans will have more to say about the importance of looking beyond ourselves when he returns with more of today's lesson just a moment for so the message were listening to today is from his series called Joseph detour's to destiny in these lessons.

Tony digs deep into the life of Joseph and the things that seem to take them off course like being betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery than being falsely accused of rape and thrown into prison but through it all we discover God working behind the scenes to prepare Joseph for an amazing destiny that included reuniting with his family and saving a nation learning how God provided for Joseph.
