“Time Alone With God: A Devotional Study for Discovering Renewed Hope in God,” is a book of devotions, that have been compiled into book form, so rather than reading a devotion every day, this book will become a personal Bible study, between you and God.
The book will become a study that will take you on a journey, from a point of weakness or suffering, right on through, to the time of discovering renewed hope in God.
The book has eight different sections, many chapters, and tidbits of hope throughout the book. The first section is dealing with an unsettled circumstance or the moment of adversity…the time when we feel the weakest. From there, we go into a section that helps us to understand, what can allow us to fall further into despair or what can lead us into other traps, set up by Satan and then we will do a study on Satan and the plan he has, for keeping us in despair.
As we come to the center of the book, we will study the things that will help us to view our trials in a different way, so we can see them through God’s eyes, instead of our own. From there, we learn in section five, how we can weaken evil and as we enter section six, we begin to take a new turn, away from our despair and study the things that will bring us to a healing. Once we have discovered a healing through Jesus Christ, we will enter section seven and learn how we can continue to press on, with God’s help, especially after overcoming a previous circumstance.
As we enter the final section of the book…section eight, we will study a renewed hope that can usher us into the presence of God. In this section, we will study the peace of God…the peace that can calm any new storm that may arise. Then we will study different forms of love that can bring renewed hope back into our lives and finally, we will view eternity, as the final step of our journey. In this chapter, we will study how important it is to remain close to God, especially during times of adversity and we will come to see, that each choice we make in life, can keep us doomed within our despair or our choice can be a means of God, eternally lifting us out of despair.
We do not always understand the reasons for these moments of adversity but one thing we do know; is that with God in our lives, there is a way out… a means of walking beyond a powerful circumstance, to find a greater God!
