I think Psalm 23 was probably the first chapter I memorized. And the funny thing is I memorized it in King James, memorized it also in NIV and quite possibly in NASB. So when I recite it now, I mix up all the versions and come up with my own paraphrase. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s biblical.
Iâ€™ve heard countless sermons on this short chapter but I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever read a book about it. I know there are many out there and Iâ€™ve heard very good things about the books. I just havenâ€™t read any.
Iâ€™ve recently been inundated with life, things and my own horrible sinfulness. Iâ€™ve found myself facing what appeared to be insurmountable obstacles. And like most people Iâ€™ve questioned whether or not I thought God was enough. I questioned whether or not I thought God was enough to meet my needs. Iâ€™ve wondered if He was God enough to notice.
So when I was given the chance to read God is More than Enough by Dr. Tony Evans, I almost skipped over it. Yes, you read that right. When confronted with the chance to see if God was enough, I didnâ€™t want to know the answer was yes. Because I already knew it in my mind, but my heart questioned. I kept finding myself drawn to read the book.
So I downloaded it to my Nook and took the plunge. When I started the short little book (only 50 pages on my Nook) I had no idea it was on Psalm 23. I read the book for my devotional time. It was a great addition!
The book was good and I enjoyed it. But Dr. Evans wrote like a preacher. I could hear him preaching a sermon while reading the book. Does that make sense to you?
It was a little distracting for me. Also, this is my personal preference but I would have appreciated his use of the pronoun â€œweâ€ as opposed to his use of the pronoun â€œyouâ€. Itâ€™s a small thing but I like knowing that none of us has a handle on all of the Christian life.
I loved that the book was easy to read and full of great information. I canâ€™t say there was anything I didnâ€™t know already but sometimes we all just need a reminder of what we know and just arenâ€™t doing.
If youâ€™re looking for a little supplement to your devotional time, this would be a great book to add to your library.
I received a free copy of God is More than Enough by Dr. Tony Evans for the purpose of review from the publishers. Opinions expressed in this review are my own.
