Booksneeze~Review~Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World

Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World, by Dr. David Jeremiah

Once again Dr. Jeremiah writes eloquently.  Easy to read, Easy to understand, and yet meaty enough to keep my attention. He addresses the world we live in, not excluding any of its chaotic state, or the destruction path we are on. Everything is factual as I checked them out myself.

Dr. David Jeremiah shows scripturally how this is prophesied in Revelation, and how we are to cling to the words of Christ for our comfort. Keeping our eyes on our LORD in order to rise up like on wings of eagles. His reminder through out the book of a cursed/broken world is timely. As believers we need to remember that first, and then the blessing we live under.

I loved this book, although the truth that is spelled our here is hard to swallow at times. Jesus did not promise us a life with out trials, or chaos. HE did promise us to never leave us, to guide us, to comfort us, and to give us peace.

This is a must read. Todays world, todays news can not just steal our confidence but will tear us down.  Thank you Dr. Jeremiah for the truth you have given to us in this book, no doubt a reminder from God.

Abundant Grace Day 5~Deception

(fell behind last week, later today i will post for today, and back on track! noticed i have a few stalking w/o commenting, please comment, your thoughts are safe here, no condemnation)

Philippians 2:3

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.  Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Genesis 25:29-34 /Genesis 27:1-10

Jacob was named the “Deceiver”, remember grasping his brothers heel at birth.  This family had some issues!  Parents you favored one more then the other, a son who would sell his future for a bowl of food, the other who would gladly take it all, and a mother who keep the secret, and send her son away to protect him from the other.

WOW! Still God’s plan.  HE knew they would choose these things, and HIS greater glory would still shine through them.  I am always amazed when looking at this family line, and the fact that God had every bit of it written down for us to know and see, HIS mercy and grace, His plan that can not be stopped.  Faithfulness.

Which of these  family members gets your attention? Are you amazed at how God makes a plan that would not look anything like the plan we would make?  Thoughts?
