And He said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.Exodus 33:14
In the same way as these ducks are being escorted, we can have the confidence that God is directing our steps for our own best interests and protection.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Free To Be Wiseby Kirk Youngblood
How can I know God’s will for my life? Should I expect God to reveal it to me mystically, or has He already revealed His wisdom in Scripture, which enables me to be wise in my decision making? What faulty methods should I avoid in making decisions, and how can I apply biblical wisdom? Far too many have been paralyzed with indecision because they are looking for a mystical inside track to a new revelation from God. In Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making, Kirk Youngblood explains how you can avoid the common pitfalls of using a mystical approach to biblical decision making. You will be liberated to follow the wisdom God has already revealed in His Word. Youngblood has thoroughly researched this topic and explains the mysticism versus wisdom paths to learning God’s will for your life in a clear and easy-to-understand manner.
You’ll Get Through Thisby Max Lucado
In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph–tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed–but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fearby Max Lucado
Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.
They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
