The Necessity of an Enemy Book Review

I liked it. I felt the author had a lot of good points to make regarding why we have an enemy and how not to think of our challenges as punishment or in a negative perspective but as opportunities to glorify God and push through them with a different attitude.

I’ve always felt that when people say God won’t give us anything we can’t handle, it was a misquote. What scripture tells us is that He won’t give us what we can’t handle withOUT Him! This book reflects that belief for me.

In all things we are to give thanks and that includes the difficult times because scripture does tell us those are the times He uses to help us grow. We cannot grow if we are never challenged to move forward. Any Christian living in the Word knows and understands this truth. The author sheds new light on how to accept this and praise God while enduring it.

I recommend this book to anybody who finds the difficult times too difficult to see God through it all.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.

About Me

My photo
Anthem, Arizona, United States
I'm a caregiver to my husband who is permanently disabled. Life can be a bit challenging when it's not really about me at all. I've got two boys, 18 and 3 and they're both an added handful. I spend my spare time trying to keep from being bored and try to make it about me, life and socializing with others about how they spend their time. Hence, the birth of this blog!
