The awe-inspiring power of God
Through stories of angelic encounters and miraculous happenings, you will be reminded that regardless of your circumstances, God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This beautiful collection of devotions draws from two proven favorites previously published as An Angel a Day and A Miracle a Day by bestselling author Ann Spangler.
Refresh your faith in the God of miracles.
Thats what this book is about. God doing extraordinary things for ordinary people.
In a time of anxiety and uncertainty, these stories reveal the surprising power of Gods love for you. Bestselling author Ann Spangler shines a light on the God who is far bigger and more merciful than you think ... the God who deeply cares about you ... the God who generously offers the help you seek. Whether you are sitting before a cozy fire or taking a break in your frenzied day, reading these devotions will help you draw closer to the only One who is capable of being your refuge in every kind of trouble. Each reflection will remind you that, even in the midst of lifes challenges, one thing remains true: You belong to a God who is eager and able to care for you with wisdom, kindness, and unfailing mercy.
Drawn from Anns previously published works An Angel a Day and A Miracle a Day, these devotions open with a Bible verse and close with a prayer. Each will reveal the love of God for everyone who needs a miracleincluding you.
And then there are the miracles: a little boy desperately allergic to fruit healed so immediately he can eat an apple; a radically sick mother told that her unborn baby would be deformed by her sickness refuses to abort and gives birth to a healthy, strong baby; a family member gives away $5 they can ill afford and next day receives $25 back.
But that is not all there is to this book. Ann Spangler has built a strong scriptural foundation for When You Need A Miracle. No man-designed angels appear. No miracles unwrought by God occur. No accounts that are contrary to Scripture are presented. In fact, a major portion of this book recounts biblical angelic appearances and miracles. Written in a devotional style, When You Need A Miracle starts by stating its aim as, . . . to refresh your faith in the God who met Moses in the desert . . . and to nourish your belief that he still speaks today (p. 10). Each reflection is recounted with Scripture, an application to bring you closer to your Lord, and a sample prayer. The scriptural accounts are strategically placed throughout to draw your thoughts towards the God of angels and miracles, rather than leaving you ruminating only on them. Not all is sweetness and light. There is a segment on Satan and his angels, and another on times when no angel comes to the rescue. The miracle section includes a temporary miracle and having faith without receiving a miracle.
I found this book interesting and thought provoking. It is easy to read, and when read where others can see its title promotes inquiry, which can lead to witnessing. Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
