The front of the book jacket states its title, OVERCOMER: 8 WAYS TO LIVE A LIFE OF UNSTOPPABLE STRENGTH,
UNMOVABLE FAITH, AND UNBELIEVABLE POWER. Authored by David Jeremiah, it is today’s focus, because it offers hope that I want to share.
The back of the book jacket reveals more. “In OVERCOMER bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah uses Paul’s instructions in Ephesians 6. His command for us to overcome the forces of evil by putting on the armor of God — to lay out a pathway for spiritual victory. Dr. Jeremiah also reminds us we’re not alone in this fight. God knows what we need, and He provides us with His power so we can face life’s challenges assured of success.
‘These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)’”
This is the book my beloved was reading shortly before his stroke. I helped him finish it by reading aloud to us. Since then we have finished that book, and together we have read other encouraging books and devotionals that share hope.
We recommend this book. Take time to prayerfully consider what God wants you to learn from it. I pray God’s Holy Spirit will help the Scriptures in it and God’s purpose for it reach into hearts of all who read it.
I believe He wants each of His children to be an Overcomer. Read the Bible daily, and read this book also! Discover His strength, faith, and power! Hope is a bonus!
“Finally be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the full armor of God so that you will be able to resist in the evil day and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:10-17)
