Tailgate Series: Where Do You Focus Your Eyes When Facing a Crisis? feat. Brian Autry

Ep. 72 | 09/22/2021

From The Podcast Episode

We’ve all been going through a crisis for the last year and a half. Brian Autry, Executive Director of the SBC of Virginia, joined us at our Spring 2021 Tailgate Tour to remind us never to waste a crisis. We can say to our God, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12b  

Where do you focus your eyes when you have a problem?

We dream of being the hero of the story, but we should be seeking the Lord. In focusing on Him, we find our hope. “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 

Brian gives one of the coolest encouragements I’ve heard as he walks through what it would have taken for the children of Israel to cross the Red Sea and live in the desert. Did you ever think about what it took for them to get across in just one night? They’d have to march across 5,000 people wide, about a 3-mile-wide part in the sea! Not to mention the 11 million gallons of water, 750,000 quail, and 2 million gallons of manna they’d need daily – and so much more that God provided for them.

You’ve got to hear this faith-building breakdown of his faithfulness in the desert. 

Our God can handle your crisis. Tune in and listen as he gives the steps we can take to keep our eyes on Him. He is the one true hero that we hand the ball off to because the battle belongs to Him.
