BOOK REVIEW: LEARNING FROM THE MASTER – LIVING A SURRENDER LIFE
I had the pleasure to review a powerful, hand on and practical hand book, Learning From The Master – Living A Surrender Life by Laura J. Davis. We live in times full of uncertainties, fear, doubts and challenges, learning and adopting the value of surrender is nearly impossible if not for God’s grace. This book will provide you the required tools both to overcome fear and gain trust in God simultaneously.
I reviewed this workbook solely without reference to the novel and I receive it as my only remuneration for my independent review.
This is a well-designed workbook, which invite us throughout the book to scrutinize our own lives and dig deeper into our hearts to a new discovery that brings us closer to the Saviour. Laura J. Davis does a magnificent job for directing, nurturing and nourishing us in living surrendered lives, based on love and respect.
I subscribe to similar formulae i.e. trust, obedience and submission, to strengthen my faith which was not the case prior to acceptance of Jesus into my life. Through trials and tribulations, God strengthen my faith and caused me to submit to Him voluntarily out of His grace. By knowing my true self deeply and thoroughly, I am able to solve whatever challenge in my life through Christ who strengthens me. This is because there are no challenges, even when combined, larger than Him inside us, provided I surrender to Him.
Laura J. Davis is a firm believer of living a surrendered life, illustrated with numerous compelling and captivating scripture’s stories that truly convinced and convicted me before she raised the relevant and material questions at the end of each chapter. By doing so, we are able to see and connect to this scripture so that we are not side tracked. Here, she relates the real life of Joseph in this context.
"Learning From The Master - Living A Surrender Life" is a practical, hand on work book which serves wide and diverse needs especially for those who want to gain the highest, deepest and broadest perspective on how to live a life surrendered to God. It is not meant to persuade or dissuade you – it’s meant to inform, ingrain and inspire you in gaining appropriate and broad perspectives in such a life.
Her approach is also possible with statements like:
“It can only be done through the work of Holy Spirit and a person’s willingness to surrender to the Lord’s will.”
To know more, please grab hold of the book immediately and read it from the horse's mouth. Well done and I pray that Lord will continue to use her mightily for His will, Amen.
