Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny
by Tony Evans –
(Rent) by Tony Evans. All 6 of these video sessions are available to individuals as rent sessions. Few of us like to be stalled, for any reason. But detours are necessary if any improvement is going to be made on the paths we travel, or if any wreck is going to be cleaned up or a hazard avoided. Detours are designed for our own good, regardless of how we view or feel about them. Detours are a good thing that often feel bad. In the Bible, Joseph learned this firsthand through lessons that have stood the tests of time. You can apply what Joseph experienced millennia ago to reach your destiny, too! These video sessions are most effective when used with the
Detours Bible study book. Rent any one or more of these sessions for personal use or for times you can’t be at the group Bible study sessions.

Session 1: The Purpose of Detours [29:55]
Everyone loves a great story. In the first session of
Detours, Dr. Tony Evans tells us that God has given us the story of Joseph, full of unexpected twists, turns, and detours. Joseph moves through the realities of life, stays faithful and gives us a prime example of God can take anyone—especially you--from where you are to where He wants you to be.
Session 2: the Proof of Detours [30:10]
Author Tony Evans teaches in the second session of
Detours that God can postpone deliverance for our own good—and the good of others. God can and will use you when He delays your circumstances to bring you closer to your destiny.
Session 3: The Patience of Detours [34:49]
You may be in a crisis that has you asking, “When will this end?” Tony Evans uses the life of Joseph as told to us in the Book of Exodus to demonstrate the huge value of patience. Joseph trusted God’s direction and delays through abuse and hatred, slavery, prison, and finally arrived at his destiny to be the man who saved the Egyptian empire and his own family. Be patient and trust God’s timing and direction on your life detours.
Session 4: The Pardon of Detours [31:26]
Author Tony Evans points out in this fourth session that it’s possible to be held hostage by the past, chained there by unforgiveness. Until you learn biblical forgiveness, you will remain on one life detour after another. Learn to forgive and learn from your past—not live in it.
Session 5: The Promotion of Detours [28:38]
Everyone can have big dreams. When we do, we may also discover those dreams are not immune to roadblocks—and roadblocks can hurt us and delay our dreams. Listen as Dr. Tony Evans shows us in this fifth session of
Detours how God can step in and turn detours into promotions, raising up help and opening doors for us at just the right time.
Session 6: The Providence of Detours [28:23]
In this final session, Dr. Tony Evans teaches that, from our viewpoint, God’s ways can seem unpredictable. Yet, our God can take random events, disappointing events, disturbing events, and even discouraging events and weave a destiny out of our detours. You will find rhyme and reason in God’s reasons for your detours when you trust Him with your destiny.
