God Is Able (Review & Giveaway)

“IMPOSSIBLE. IMPENETRABLE. UNCHANGEABLE. Maybe so—until God gets involved. No matter the details of your circumstance, His raw power potential and immeasurable ability refuse to cower in the face of any challenge. Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing. Not even that thing.”

This tag line aptly summarizes Priscilla Shirer’s uplifting devotional book, God Is Able. If right now you’re struggling because your problems are looming larger than the Lord’s presence in your life, you need this book!

God Is Able is a fast read. But not because it doesn’t have important things to say. It’s simply that Priscilla’s style is so down-to-earth and easy to take in, you’ll feel like you’re hearing from a good friend—one who has been where you’ve been and knows just what to say. It’s a godly, positive, pep talk that you can re-read as often as needed!

Here’s an excerpt from God Is Able. Take a moment to read it, and let Priscilla’s words give you hope today.

From Priscilla: “No matter who you are, however old or young, there’s always at least one thing. That thing in your life that you can’t seem to escape or fix or solve . . . You’ve prayed. You’ve asked. You’ve begged. You’ve fretted. You’ve calculated . . .And honestly, you’re starting to seriously wonder now if God can do this, if He can do . . . It.

I’ve got a few Its myself.

In the midst of these various challenges and struggles that come together to threaten my sense of security, stability, and balance, I’ve found my worse fears confirmed.

I am insufficient, outmatched, and incapable of fixing everything.

Sometimes I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the day.

But I’ve also learned something else—something that changed my entire life.

God is able.”

See? A great pep talk! Here’s one of the many quotes I marked . . .
