Let me ask you a question…I mean a REALLY HONEST question – Do you believe God can be trusted? That might sound like a silly question. It feels strange to even type it and looks odd when I read it. Yet when life gets hard and the tough times come, I wonder if I really believe that God’s promises are true. I question if I have the faith to believe that I would be able to cling to those promises if that were all I had left.
In his book, “Always True”, James MacDonald attacks these questions straight on. He targets 5 specific promises which we can use as an anchor when times get tough….and even when they aren’t. Unlike a feel good story or sermon with no real proof, MacDonald weaves his case of support using scripture and personal applications from his own life. The 5 promises are as follows:
1 – God is always with me. I will not fear.
2 – God is always in control. I will not doubt.
3 – God is always good. I will not despair.
4 – God is always watching. I will not falter.
5 – God is always victorious. I will not fail.
We live in a cynical world. I, for one, am as cynical at times as they come. When the times get tough, I will be honest and say I struggle with having the faith to see them through. If you’re like me, then this book is for you. If you are facing a time like that right now, this book is for you. You will be challenged and inspired to believe that God is good and can be trusted.
I give “Always True” a 4 out of 5.
