God is Able


Title:  God is Able
Author:  Priscilla Shirer
Pages:  176
Year:  2013
Publisher:  B & H Books
As I was reading this book, one characteristic that I was blessed by was the transparent way Priscilla shared about what she believes, and in some cases, what she believes for others who are struggling or need to hear a truth.  She shares in one chapter that it took awhile for her to be captured by the truth.  What the author shares is about Who God is and not that He will give us all we want.  Do you know why?  If God gave us all we want, not only would we be spoiled, but we would be putting ourselves in a mess.  Like those who have help raise kids, taught kids or whatever, we all know that giving in to them isn’t the best for them.
God is able to do for us more than we can ever imagine.  He wants more for us than we can ever comprehend.  I am not talking about material things, but what matters most…the spiritual part of us.  Priscilla shares about perspective, especially those long nights where answers haven’t come yet and sleep hasn’t either or how about a long season in your life that is causing you to be weary and just putting one foot in front of the other takes a great amount of concentration? 
Wherever you are right now in life, whether good times or bad, physically okay or not, none of these things stops God from working.  The whole idea of God is Able is to remind us that when we can’t, that’s okay because God can.  Yet, if we remember that God can do above and beyond all that we ask or think, He will do it in ways that will surprise the socks off of you or maybe humble you.  I, too, experience the Wow moments of God working and the humble reminder that I was never meant to live dependent on my flesh or anyone else, just God.
Read God is Able and consider encouraging someone with a copy this holiday season!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
