"If an honest and capable portrait painter depicted you, what would the world see? Integrity, courage, and conviction? Or dishonesty, fear, and doubt?"
Dr. Charles Stanley asks this question as he encourages us to probe the depths of our hearts and to take stock of who we really are. Many people are content to live below their real potential and to settle for less than God intends?just the status quo. He wants us to live victorious lives.
In Living the Extraordinary Life, Dr. Stanley gives us time-tested truths that God reveals through Scripture?nine simple but effective life principles that can help us live truly triumphant lives. Learn how:
- surrendering your life to God leads to peace, contentment, and joy
- obedience always brings blessing
- only by patience can we know God's will
- we can win out battles if we fight them on our knees
Whether we are longtime Christians struggling with the temptations and stresses of today's world, or new believers reaching out for the first time to Christ to transform our lives, this book can point us to the secrets for living happier, more meaningful lives.
"Becoming the masterpiece God created you to be is a lifelong process in which He is continually shaping you into a unique reflection of His Son," Dr. Stanley says. "It is my prayer that you will embrace each one of these principles fully, and in doing so, discover the extraordinary life God has planned for you."
Dr. Charles Stanley is senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the author of numerous books, including The Blessings of Brokenness and other titles in the popular A Touch of His . . . devotional series. His popular radio and TV program In Touch is heard and seen worldwide.
It is a study of nine principles that Dr. Stanley has discovered in his walk with the Lord. They include: Gods Grace is the Starting Point; Trust the Lord, and He will move Heaven and Earth to Accomplish His Purpose; Obedience Always Brings Blessing; Knowing Gods Will is Worth the Wait; and Fight Your Battles on Your Knees, and Youll Win Every Time.
"Are you wrestling against forces that seem out of your control? Is lifes treadmill going faster that you are? If you answer yes you are running your own life." And therein lies the problem for each of us. In this age of instant everything, if we dont getor findthe answer yesterday, we ignore God and try to solve problems our way.
Dr. Stanley shows through Scripture and example the wisdom and blessing that is ours when we slow down, prioritize, and submit to God. We were created with a "God" hole in us. When we try to fill that place with anything but God, we are bound to fail. When we ignore Gods rules and warnings, we set ourselves up to fall.
Developing a relationship with our Father takes time and effort, but is worth it. His way is seldom easy, but yielding to it always results in blessing and a deeper relationship with Him. The fruit of the Spirit is proof of His love to us and through us to others. It is proof of the Extraordinary Life possible to each one of us.
Living the Extraordinary Life is a great Bible study for individuals or small groups. At the end of each chapter there are a few questions and extra Scriptures to study. He also has provided journaling pages at the back. Linda Demorest, Christian Book Previews.com
