Product Description

Jesus said that he came to "proclaim the year of God's favor." But what does that mean? Assuring us that God is not a stingy giver, Gerald explores the Lord's extravagant goodness to show that he's always reaching out to us with unceasing love, grace, and forgiveness---even though we don't deserve it.

Publisher's Description

Take a fresh look around you with eyes that cut through the daily distortions and see the undeniable and extravagant goodness of God. 

There are certain messages today, both outside and inside the church, that have tainted the true message of God’s favor. The reality is God isn’t obligated to provide good things for us—but He wants to! This is your opportunity to adopt a favor-minded mentality and realize that God’s favor, like His grace, is unearned, limitless, and never-ending. And, it’s for us!
In Good Things, Kevin Gerald invites you to become a good finder.
This book will equip you to:  
●    Discover that the goodness of God exceeds the pain of life’s hardship.
●    Know how to keep your mind on God’s favor not your failure.
●    Recognize that Grace and Favor are so intertwined you can’t separate them.
●    Apply seven favor dynamics that will help you overcome relationship barriers.
●    See what you are certain to overlook until your eyes are trained to see it.
It’s time you move forward in confidence, knowing that God is for you. He is always seeking to give you good things, and His favor is forever!

Editorial Reviews

"Kevin Gerald isn’t one of those annoying ’God is good…all the time…generically speaking’ Christians. He champions an optimism that doesn’t contradict reality. He acknowledges the frustrations of life but makes the convincing case that the force of God’s favor is always greater. This is my kind of book: full of hope, packed with power."
—Steven Furtick, lead pastor, Elevation Church and New York Times best-selling author of Crash the Chatterbox, Greater, and Sun Stand Still

"Good Things will train your eyes to see God, his goodness, and his favor upon you in every situation you find yourself in and will dramatically change your life. I so appreciate Kevin’s solid approach and his uplifting voice."
—Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

"In one of the most challenging seasons of my career, this phrase from Kevin Gerald got me through: ’This is just a chapter—it’s not the story.’ Kevin has been a leader in my life for the past ten years, through the ups and downs, and he has been there challenging me to keep my perspective right. With this book, I’m confident he can encourage and challenge you to see God’s goodness in your life more clearly."
—Jonathan Stewart, NFL running back, Carolina Panthers

"With inspired biblical insight, Kevin Gerald challenges us to look deeper in our understanding of what God’s favor is all about. The result is like putting on a new pair of glasses and realizing what you’ve been missing. Loaded with practical application for Christians in every season, Good Things will forever change the way you see the goodness of God and our many abundant gifts as his children."
—Chris Hodges, senior pastor, Church of the Highlands and author of Fresh Air and Four Cups

—Dr. Ed Young, senior pastor, Second Baptist Church, Houston

"Seeing God’s favor in your life can sometimes be difficult, especially if you are facing challenges, insecurities, or fears. Sometimes all it takes is a change in perspective. Good Things explains what God’s favor is all about and how we can see it everywhere if we just look for it."
—Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of and author of #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World

—Ed Young, senior pastor of Fellowship Church and author of Outrageous, Contagious Joy

"Good Things unpacks great insight on what true favor from God really is. Many people have a distorted view of God and his favor for our lives. This book will help change the mind-set that ensnares so many in bondage, never actually living the life God fully intended for them. Good Things will bring clarity to your life and renewal to your soul."
—Lee Domingue, founder of Kingdom Builders U.S., legacy pastor Church of the Highlands, and author of Pearls of the King

—Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor, Free Chapel and Ne

    Glad I didn't listen to the review of others considering this book is not theologically deep. While Kevin Gerald does not offer an exegetical study on the concept of theodicy, he does serve it up to the reader in a manner that is easy to understand, yet requires thoughtful consideration of the concept "If God is good, then why_____?". I found the content to be a refreshing look at the goodness of God and how one navigates the struggle that often follows disappointment and tragedy in our lives. Encouraging read!

    This book talks about a real life struggle that many of us have: seeing God's goodness despite negative circumstances. What I love about it is that the author doesn't try to say that he knows everything but brings to the table a fresh perspective that can change your life.

    He brings in scripture and research to support his claims that help us to see the good in everything through anecdotal stories and real life struggles he has experienced.

    I highly recommend this book not only for you but the people in your world who need a change in perspective. This book will leave you feeling renewed, inspired, and challenged.
