OUR DAILY BREAD BIBLE

OUR DAILY BREAD Devotional Bible published by Discovery House Publisher, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. Take the devotional Our Daily Bread of the Radio Bible Class and the NLT translation and join them together for a great combination Bible. 365 of the best devotions and complete NLT Bible all in one book. It can be used by anyone who read thru the Bible in a year or by those who wants to just do a devotional each day. The NLT is a easy to read and understand translation of the Bible. I was asked to select one book to concentrate on, I choose the book of Job because of the troubles he had. The devotions are connected to each reading. Each day reading offers a deeper meaning and prayers in understanding Job. I also checked devotions in other books of the Bible and found that that carries thru in each book. As I was reading the devotions I thought about the help they would be to anyone going thru problems in life or who just needs a boost each day. They give a Biblical and easy to understand answer to help you.

I try to read thru the Bible each year, this is going to be my Bible for 2013 to read each day.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my review.

Spiritual Battles

Did you ever hear anyone make the statement -- The enemy or Satan did that or caused that.?

I have heard conversations where people will give Satan or demons more credit for things happening in their life then they do God. When we do this we are not centering our mines on God and praising Him. Satan can do no more then what God allows him to do, God allows things to happen, you can know this by reading the book of Job. God uses these things to make us strong and grow in our faith. God has created all things and is in control of all things. The truth is we are in a spiritual warfare but we must keep our minds and hearts centered on Jesus, He has defeated Satan and we have the victory.

Spiritual warfare is over-emphasized by those who blame every sin, problem, and conflict that comes their way on Satan or demons. We are in a spiritual battle at all times and we cannot ignore the spiritual world.

So when things don't seem right in your life praise God and remember you have the victory over the enemy through Jesus Christ.

    No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us

    Romans 8:37 NLT

    In this way, God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross of Christ

    Colossians 2:15 NLT

    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

    Romans 8:28 NIV

    yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

    1 Corinthians 8:6 NIV

    always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

    Ephesians 5:20 NIV

    [Test the Spirits] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

    1 John 4:1 NIV

    Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour.

    1 Peter 5:8 NLT

Keep you eyes upon Jesus and he will see you through.

JESUS HAS WON THE VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Circle Maker

The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson …. This book is about a method of praying circle around your problems and dreams and a man named Honi, who the author calls a circle maker, from a time before Christ was born. He says at the being of the book that it will have you praying circles around any situation you are facing. The author gives examples of different people who prayed circle around their situations and results. The author used some examples of people bribing God and turn around and says we can't bribe God. I had a problem this and also with the fact that their wasn't scripture verses to backup this method. Deuteronomy 10:17 NIV

    For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes

I believe, Jesus taught us the Lords Prayer in Matthew and also told us to ask and we would receive. The only thing that stands in our way of having prayers answered is our sin that we have not repented of, we need to come to God in prayer with clean heart and He will hear us.

I received a digital review copy of The Circle Maker in Edelweiss by Zondervan.
