New York Times best selling author T. D. Jakes’ books consistently proclaim characteristics of integrity, gentleness, and truth. “Strength to Stand” equips the reader with a plan for overcoming, for succeeding, for thriving, for advancing, and for winning.
The book includes:
• Biblical instruction
• Probing questions for building faith stamina and for finding solutions
• Steps to finding God’s calling on your life, to meet challenges to live out your full potential
Each chapter combines devotional reading and reflections with a practical study guide adaptable for personal or group use. The bite size chapters are rich in practical instruction for adapting scripture promises into life changing personal applications.
I personally found the truths presented in the chapter titled “God’s School of the Spirit” especially beneficial. The “Stamina Secrets and Solutions” helped me formulate steps to communicating with God through intimate dialog, while thirsting for truth, operating within those truths, as well as influencing and persuading others with that truth. He also addressed other important issues, including: The danger of pride, healing for past hurts, and getting back on track.
Bishop T. D. Jakes’ writing provides the reader with amazing insight into spiritual life changing principles. His writing is articulate, convincing, and practical.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's guidelines. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
