God’s Dependaple Promises

 Dr. James MacDonald, pastor of a large Chicago area church, wrote this book after experiencing adversity he described as a boulder that dropped from the sky and crash landed on their lives. He soon had no resources except God. Eventually his life returned to normal as God proved dependable and also taught him how to help others.

            As the author says, everyone faces hardships and needs help for stormy times. His message is clear, conversational and exceptionally encouraging. I wish everyone could read this book. To quote *Tevya’s song, “I wish I were a rich man…” so I could buy a thousand copies to distribute.

Dr. MacDonald gives the Bible’s basis for each section of the book. Then he quotes each promise from God and tells what that promise means in our lives.  In showing us that God is always with us, always in control, always good, always watching and always victorious, the author gives answers to fear, doubts and despair. He teaches that we will not falter or fail.

The writer knows that God is a promise giver by nature, always keeps His word and wants us to test His promises. MacDonald tells us how to access five foundational promises and fully experience the results God offers.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.

  1. Judith Robl says:

    The old hymn, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, seems to say it all for me.

    Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
    Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
    Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
    Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside.
