SERIES DESCRIPTION: Life comes at you hard. Whether you’ve faced a debilitating disease, a marriage on the rocks or a dead-end career, the crises you face have a way of stacking up and knocking you down. When that happens, it might seem as though there is no way to win the battle. But in this ten-part series, Tony Evans wants you to know that there is good news: you are not defeated. You can overcome because God is in your corner, ready, willing and able to deliver you from your crises and give you a comeback over the hardships of life.
#1 – Why God Wants to Bless You (Luke 5:1-11): Everybody wants to be blessed by God, but what we don’t often hear is God’s side of the blessing. According to Tony Evans, when God opens the doors to His divine blessing, He is more interested in you seeing what He knows, who He is and what you can do for others.
#2 – Reversing Spiritual Curses (2 Kings 5:1-14): The act of sin committed by Adam and Eve brought with it a spiritual curse. But as Tony Evans explains, God has provided a way for that curse to be lifted. He greatly desires to see us free from the bondage of sin. Discover what the Bible teaches about reversing the curse and living free from its grip.
#3 – Reversing the Money Curse (2 Kings 5:20-27): Each of us has experienced money problems. Often, the problem isn’t so much the money as it is the consequences of making a bad decision with money. But God isn’t sitting on the sidelines watching you flounder. He wants you to draw nearer to Him so that He might deliver you from financial hardship.
#4 – Reversing the Career Curse (2 Kings 7:3-9): Our jobs can be a source of great stress for us. Maybe you’ve recently lost a job, or maybe you feel stuck in a go-nowhere career. But Tony Evans reminds us that God will sometimes test us in a difficult situation to see if we will place our faith and trust in Him to either give us the strength to endure or to deliver us from it.
#5 – Bringing God Your Emptiness (2 Kings 4:1-7): When you’re at your worst and emptiness consumes you, that’s when God might present a solution that makes no sense. Such is the case with an elderly woman seeking help from the prophet Elisha. She pours out her emptiness before him and follows his strange instructions, receiving God’s blessings because of her faith.
#6 – Reversing the Physical Curse (Luke 17:11-19): Each of us has been touched by sickness and injury. The reality is that in a fallen world, our bodies are susceptible to all manner of pain. But the Bible teaches that by His stripes, we are healed, and Tony Evans takes us through Luke 17 to show how the mercy of God can restore even the worst of physical ailments.
#7 – A Crisis That Cries for Revival (2 Chronicles 20:1-4): You know you’re in a crisis when life is overwhelming you and doesn’t seem to present a way out. In that unwinnable moment, if we cry out to God for deliverance, not only will He show up, but He will declare to you what He declared to Jehoshaphat: “The battle belongs to Me.”
#8 – How to Solve a Dilemma (Exodus 14:1-14): Whether you call it a catch-22 or being caught between a rock and a hard place, a dilemma is the no-win scenario that so many of us have experienced. When every possible solution to the problem has been exhausted, remember that your God is an expert in winning the no-win scenario, if you’ll place your trust in Him.
#9 – Experiencing Spiritual Wisdom (Ephesians 1:15-21): It is no secret that possessing wisdom and knowing God are connected. But having the wits to make sound decisions in difficult circumstances requires an ability to use that wisdom to see your way through to the other side. Listen as Tony Evans builds the bridge between knowing God and living wisely.
#10 – Experiencing Spiritual Deliverance (Exodus 14:10-18): Have you ever thought about your own personal crisis as an opportunity? No one likes a crisis, yet as Tony Evans explains, within every calamity, struggle or battle there is the God who desires to step in, save the day and be your hero.
