Fresh Power

 

I read the last book in the Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire; Fresh Faith; and Fresh Power series.

The photo is from Christian Book Distributor and the book is copyrighted in 2001 by Jim Cymbala and published by Zondervan. Jim Cymbala and Dean Merrill wrote it.

A friend of mine from out-of-state recommended his books. What a treasure those tomes became to me.

At times, I didn’t want to finish the last one. It was either because I didn’t want the insights to end or because the enemy of my soul didn’t want me to finish reading it. There’s lots of meat in those books. The last one reiterates what I’ve felt for years.

The Holy Spirit wants to empower Christians if we’ll only take the time to seek God, to repent of our sins, to ask Him to lead us and help us to obey.

There’s probably four verses in that last sentence: 2 Chronicles 7:14, Matthew 10:28, John 15:16, and John 15:4.

Anyway, God is able to deliver us from evil and help us through difficult times.

There seems to be lots of Christian songs lately talking of holding onto God during hard times.

Laura Story, Crowder, and Mercy Me are just a few of the artists portraying God’s love in the midst of hardship.

Jesus said in John 15:20, (ASV): “Remember the word that I said unto you, A servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also.”

I hope you’re reading some great books.

May God bless you.
