Here's another review for another pure amazing book!
"But when the Father sends the Counselor as my representative -- and by the Counselor I mean the Holy Spirit -- he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I myself have told you. I am leaving you with a gift -- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:26-27
I honestly believe that the holy spirit worked through this young man every moment he worked on this book. I had never heard of Steven Furtrick before I requested this book, I had no idea what to expect from this, so many wonderful things were found in this book it would take all day for me to explain them! This isn't a book that will make you feel guilty, or that you have done something wrong, that is not even close to what it teaches you. It is to give you peace of mind, to fight back against all the condemnation the devil manages to make us believe. Through personal stories to made up ones Steven shows us how to fight the endless chatterbox in our heads.
"And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.And a voice said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" 1 kings 19:12-13
"God whispers because he is close" This has to be one of my most favorite parts in the entire book! nor will i forget the message in these six little words. God whispers because he is close to us, he doesn't have to yell. The devil shouts constantly in your mind, and gets louder when you get closer to God, trying to pull your attention away from God, all because you are getting further and further away from his evil ways. Just a few little words from Gd gently whispered in our ear can set us on the right path.
There is so much more I could go one about, but I think i will leave it up to the rest of you to find this book and read it for yourselves. All in all I highly suggest this book to anyone and everyone, you will not regret it
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for an honest review, which I have given.
