Many Christians have become aware of God's promises, pursued them, and obtained the abundant life that Christ provided through His death and resurrection. God's ways have become their primary pursuit in life, and God is giving them the ability to believe the truth in their hearts. They took what the Holy Spirit taught them and used it, regardless of circumstances or what others thought. They simply believed, asked God for help, and got the victory over their trouble. Jesus came to give us a more abundant life. That means we should have an abundant life now. Not tomorrow or the next day, or when we get to heaven, but today, here on this earth. This book contains testimonies of the victories of some of God's people. These testimonies are just a few examples of what is available to every member of God's family. The author had a somewhat religious upbringing and came to know salvation as a teenager. But preoccupation with the concerns of life caused him to have a mediocre understanding of what salvation really meant. Being weighed down with the cares of this world, it would be years before he realized this lifestyle was not God's way for him. Through several events, it became apparent God wanted to carry these "responsibilities" and have a closer relationship with him. It was during this time, through the Holy Spirit, he was led to write a series of books beginning with Desires of the Heart. This book, The Victories of God's People is the second book in the series.
