Good evening guys ! I am sorry that I haven’t been posting as much, I am back at university so I haven’t really had the time to post! Anyway I recently finished reading the book ‘Amazing power of faith’ by Merlin Carothers recently. When I bought the book I simply bought it because of it’s title, but I didn’t have many expectations of it.
This book is a really good book but I think the title is rather misleading as it wasn’t really discussing anything in regards to faith apart from the fact that we are saved by grace through faith. However I think it’s a great book for someone who has just been recently saved or for someone who is having a tough time in their walk with Christ especially regarding trials and temptations. As a child of God, trials and temptations will definitely come and sometimes when they do come you start doubting if you’re actually saved or not. In regards to temptations, we all fail sometimes and guilt comes knocking at our door and we then question that, if we are really saved and we really are children of God why then do we keep failing, and as a result we are then persuaded that we are going to hell. In this way I think if someone is going through a time of questioning, or a time of conviction do read this book because it will help you to put God’s word into perspective regarding temptations and trials.
The message which the book focused on was a true eye opener for me because as children of God I’m sure when we first got saved one of the first verses which was mentioned to you as you were accepting Christ was John 3:16 which states ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, so that WHOSOEVER BELIEVES in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’ but a lot of people (or maybe just me) listen to the bible verse but overlook it and sort of think, well what next? So after being saved you still have the same temptations and you think, Lord, I keep making the same mistake, I keep falling into the same temptations, addictions and or sins. Through this some people will feel like, I’m not worthy to be called a christian and because I’m a sinner I’m going to hell and they completely give up. However these feeling and thoughts are from the enemy and I strongly believe that through reading this book and studying the bible verses it mentions, you will overcome! Change your life today .
WOW! So I really feel like this (excluding the Bible) IS the book I have been waiting for. I simply think that this book is amazing because although it was written many years before I was born it resonated with me on a deeper level. Before I start reviewing this book let me just mention that I love reading testimonies. I love knowing what great works God is doing in people’s lives. This book is just a major testimony to me.
To summarise; the books sets the scene by taking us through Pat’s life from where he was born through to when he married his wife and when they had their children. The book then takes you through the main issues that Pat had, as a son, a teenager, a husband, a music star and as a father. It also takes you through issues that his wife and daughters faced. Through this Pat receives the Holy Spirit and his whole life and well as the lives of members of his family just began to change in such an unimaginable way. If I tell you anymore about this book I’d spoil it, so I suggest that you read it if you want to see how the Spirit has affected other people’s lives.
Stay Blessed !
So, yesterday I finished reading the book Good Morning Holy Spirit by Benny Hinn. Before I read it I had been meaning to read it for over a year but I just never got round to reading it for whatever reason. I am so thankful to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that I took time to read it because it has truly changed my prayer life. It has given me a whole new perspective on who the Holy Spirit actually is. Who ever you are where ever you are I recommend you to go on Amazon and order this book as soon as possible because my goodness it will take you to a whole new level.
The book goes into detail about who the Holy Spirit is, his purpose here on earth, how we should treat him and most importantly it how to not grieve him. I think as a child of God, it is important for all of us to actively seek communion with the Holy Spirit because, in the days of Moses, people spoke directly to God, later on in the new testament people spoke to Jesus himself, when Jesus Christ left, he left us the Holy Spirit as a way of communicating with God. In the book of Acts 1:8 Jesus said “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…”. In this way we can discuss this topic much deeper but I feel that as children of God we need to take steps to worship our Father in Spirit and in truth. If you are someone who is seeking to learn more about the Spirit because you want to worship God in Spirit, I would definitely recommend this book because it’s a page turner, it goes into a lot of detail without being too lengthy.
I feel that if I discuss this book with you anymore I would have already given you too much information. I strongly urge you to read it, because if you read it with an open heart it will take you to a new level unfailingly. Take heart because the journey begins when you start knowing the Holy Spirit.
Last night I finished reading the book Prison to Praise by Merlin Carothers. My mother gave me this book and she told me that it was a page turner and boy was she right ! It is a true page turner and it’s so empowering. I really enjoyed reading it and it has opened my physical and spiritual eyes in terms of how I should seeing trials and praise.
I urge you to get your hands on this book if you can. You will see your life in a whole different way and this book will help you to put in perspective God’s will for you through your current life. You may be going through big problems now and you feel as though the devil is attacking you. But you have to remember that when Job was only attacked by the devil only after God had authorized it. In this way, as a believer of Christ whatever you are going through has been authorized by God and whatever the problem is, if you praise God for it, YES, if you praise God for your problem he will give you a way out and through that situation the glory of God will be evident and the situation you went through will bring other people to Christ and will give hope to others. In this way I urge you yet again that in Jesus’ name God will find a way for you to receive this “concept” of praising God through the storm.
