Gifts of God – Reflections & Affirmations
The Gifts of God is an inspirational book on devotions about Christian living. It focuses on the abundance of gifts that are showered on us daily by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In the last of this three-part series, each devotion pays homage to a loving God who blesses, guides, and loves us abundantly. International personalities exalt his Holy Name, adore his divinity, and are forever grateful to him.
Readers of this devotional will come to experience God’s warmth, care, and praise his beautiful works. People honor and glorify the Lord’s extraordinary attributes and discover his greatest gift is love. With his promises they live in hope of rejoicing forever in salvation with his saving grace.
God is willing to forgive our sins, walks with us, and comforts us in our troubles. After we shall declare like Isaiah 7:9: "If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all." God is omnipotent and omniscient, and his ways are above our ways. We are therefore blessed by his gifts that are authentic and precious in our lives.
