The God First Life By: Stovall Weems
I first picked this book up to read because of what I read on the back cover: “The God-first Life will be a standard resource for believers and churches around the world for years to come.” With a declaration like that, how could I pass up what this book had to say? Once I started reading this book, I read it for all the advice, tips, and speaking to my heart that the book held within its pages.
What is the secret to blessing and freedom? It all starts with the decision to put God first. It’s not as simple as it sounds, but it’s as simple as putting God first in everything. This book is based on the scripture: “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matt. 6:33).
Do you experience anxiety, worry, anger, disorder? Put God first and see these things disappear. When order is restored, blessing is released. When you put God first, you experience peace, security, freedom. This book explains how worship connects us to God, how prayer and devotions reveal Jesus’ identity, and how tithing can yield greater blessing in your life.
Some tips included in the book: Rest comes from trusting God for our future. Jesus is showing us how to reach true greatness in his kingdom-by serving. If we don’t open the Scriptures for ourselves, we won’t be able to see Jesus for who he is.
I underlined many passages in this book. This book spoke to my heart and encouraged changes in my own life.
“By seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness first, we can know and experience freedom in every part of our lives. It comes from recognizing first and foremost that Christ lives in us. We have been given a new spirit, and with that spirit, incredible power-the power to overcome our past, to walk in fearless peace in the present, and to look to the future with joy, trusting God has a plan and purpose for our life.” Pick up this book today to totally transform your Christian walk and turn your life around. This is definitely one book that I will return to time and again.
I received this book free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
