What a revelation - set free at last!
on 15 June 2007
I believe that certain books speak to us at certain times, so I don't expect everyone to be perhaps as impacted as I have been by this book. However I can honestly say that the things God has revealed to me through this book have changed me and set me free for life.
I have been a Christian for a long time and take my walk with God very seriously, for I long to hear 'Well done good and faithful servant' when I finally meet Jesus. However I had no idea that in doing so I was trying to earn God's love.
For years it has felt as though God had cornered me and no matter where I tried to turn I was made to wait, or doors were shut. Honestly, I felt like God was a little mean. But I accepted it and kept waiting for His instructions.
In reading this book it is as though God's love has exploded in my heart! The chains have fallen off, my eyes have been opened and I finally know in my heart there's not a thing I can do to make him love me any more than he already does, and boy, does he love me (and you)! The fear of making mistakes or 'wasting time' has gone. And I am set free to be my own unique expression of God's love - I am free to be me without fear of what others think or having to conform.
I can thoroughly recommend this book if any of the above speaks to you, or if you are fed up of continually having to please others with no time left for yourself. Even if none of this speaks to you I am certain you will get something from this. I can also thoroughly recommend any other book of Joyce Meyer's (The EveryDay Bible is wonderful) or any other tape or teaching material. Also check out her website [...] . She is one anointed lady, who can help you get to know the Living God for yourself (not just know about Him, but actually know Him in relationship).
