Summary

God has a plan for your life. More often than not, it's a detour - one that can leave you feeling temporarily stalled and slowed down. Which nobody likes. But detours are necessary if any improvements are 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 feels bad. Tony knows a thing or two about detours, and one of the things he knows for certain is that God works through detours to bring about his blessing. To deliver you to the place he has created just for you. Yet what we often do is try as hard as we can to work our own way to the circumstances we believe are best for us.

Using examples from the life of Joseph, Tony will leave listeners with answers to the following questions:

  • How do you find the destiny God has designed for your life?
  • How can you make the most of the detours God has planned for you?
  • Is there a way to shorten a detour and speed up your progression in life?
  • What is the purpose of a detour?

Inspirational audiobook

This book is a source of inspiration. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook and intend to repeat the course periodically. The book teaches us to maintain our faith in God, especially during difficult times.

Amazing God inspired work!

This book is a must read for the Christian who is serious about his/her walk with God. We all experience detours. This book will give you the perspective and wisdom that you need to navigate through those difficult times.

A must read

Not sure there is anyone that can’t get into this book and not relate to being set into detours. I have used this book, the sermon AND podcasts to not only further myself in growth and ability to hand times over to God, but to show others they can also. Detours happen in life, learning how to read the detour signs and travel the path set helps you to stop navigating alone and learn how to listen to God’s guidance towards the end of the detour. Love this book. Highly recommend.

crystal clear!

I loved the narrators voice. it was calming to listen. I learned about being patient, waiting on God to work. and that my destiny is not carved on my own but people are placed in my life to bring forth what God has destined. Tony Evans is a great man of God
