Serving with a servant's heart.
God had given a promise to Abraham that his descendants would possess a vast land (see Genesis 12). As time passed, it began to seem less possible for the descendants of Abraham to receive their promised inheritance. They spent years in slavery in Egypt until God raised up Moses as a deliverer. As they journeyed from their place of bondage to their land of inheritance, it was necessary for them to defeat the armies that inhabited the land they had been promised to be given as their possession.
In Joshua we read that the children of Israel defeated thirty-one kings and in order to inherit their promise. From the names of those cities we will consider our own keys to inheriting God’s promise. From the definition of these cities we will draw out a thirty-one key devotional journey to our inheritance. Some of the keys will involve what we must overcome or gain victory over; other keys will be principles or characteristics that are important for us to embrace. Together we can discover and use the keys, enabling us to possess our promised inheritance.
It comforts me to know that Jesus promises us healing for the broken hearted. Even in the darkest of situations, there is hope.
I have walked through some dark days and difficult circumstances yet Christ has brought healing to my life. I have written this book to share with you the journey God has taken me on and some of the tools He used to bring healing and lasting freedom.
Isaiah 61:1 says, "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."
And yet, your path to healing may not look exactly like mine. We are all uniquely created with different backgrounds and life circumstances. Therefore, I do not believe there is just one step-by-step system.
However, in this book, I am going to share with you practical steps you can apply to your life to receive healing emotionally and spiritually. Please do not feel like you need to do every single step that I share with you. Instead, I encourage you to pray and ask God for wisdom. Ask Him to show you which specific steps you should take on your path to healing, and then, take that first step.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." ~Lao-tzu

If there is a loving God, then why is it that ... ?
You've heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain.
Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood, orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?
In this Gold Medallion Award--winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain---physical, emotional, and spiritual---and helps us understand why we suffer.
Where Is God When It Hurts? will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn't make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in pain but just doesn't know what to say.

The Bible is full of questions asked by God, Jesus, ordinary people, Satan, and even a donkey. Some are questions that we've wrestled with but have been reluctant to voice. Others are asked to comfort, to convict, or to reinforce spiritual principles. Drawing Closer to God examines 365 of these questions to uncover biblical truth readers can apply personally to their lives. Each devotional concludes with a question designed to encourage reflection and prayer, leaving readers with practical takeaway and a renewed appreciation for God's Word.

There are times in our lives when we look around and wonder, “Am I the only one that is going through?” We feel like everything seems to be falling apart—our finances, our relationships, our children,our careers—nothing seems to be going right. Many times, it leaves us bitter, even to the point where we don’t feel like praying, because we are so broken and think that because God is so mad with us, what we have to say couldn’t possibly reach the courts of heaven. But God knows every situation. Believe it or not, He is concerned about our circumstances. He hurts when we hurt and is happy when we succeed.
Galatians 6:9, “And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
This is a 30 day testament to the love that God has for you. God promises to give you the desires of your heart as you delight in Him(Psalms 37:4). So let these affirmations of God’s promises resonate in your spirit and give you a renewed sense of love for your heavenly Father, for He certainly loves His own.
