I started watching Tony Evans on television a few months ago, and this is the first book of his that I have read. I was actually going to buy a different book of his, but when I saw the title of this, because I have been struggling with what God's purpose could be for me, I bought it instead. I would recommend it to everyone. He writes in a very down to earth understandable way. I started reading it and didn't want to put it down. It really helped me to understand about God's soverignty in all of our lives, and how patient He is with us. It makes me wonder what He knows about each of us within the deep parts of our spirits and souls that we can't see for ourselves, what potential do we have that He has put within us, and how He works our circumstances to, hopefully, bring us to the point where we, too, can see what He has created us to be. This book really encouraged and blessed me.
This book is a must read for any who have doubted they can be used by the Lord! Have you done something in your life that makes you feel like you are unworthy of serving the Lord? After reading this book you may change your mind!
Every person from the Bible that is mentioned in this book is someone who the Lord used despite his or her flaws. From Moses the murder to Jacob the deceiver, each person's life had a path set before them. Even when they made mistakes the Lord still got them where He needed them to be.
I liked how the author wrote that in spite of ourselves the Lord uses us to further His work. I also liked the easy flow of this book. As you read one chapter after another you can not help but have a better understanding of the Lord's love. There is so much to learn in these pages that I will be reading this book again! I have the book 5/5 stars because all of us are sinners and this book is a great reminder that despite our sins we can be still be a witness for the Lord!
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
