God is More Than Enough - a book review

For Blogging for Books through Multnomah, I picked God is More Than Enough by Tony Evans, which is a delightl 90-page book about Psalm 23.

Mr. Evans breaks down Psalm 23 into six short chapters covering the topic of why God is More than Enough.  Starting in Chapter One, he lays a foundation of who God is and the thought that we need to truly make God our Shepherd as Psalm 23 starts with "The Lord is My Shepherd, I shall not Want". He says we need to make sure that we have made God our Shepherd, that we know that we are sheep, and believe that he is able to meet each and every one of our needs, to become totally 100% reliant upon him.

Each subsequent chapter Mr. Evans continues on with more lines from the psalm describing how God can meet our spiritual needs, emotional needs, directional needs, physical needs and eternal needs.

I did enjoy this book so much and found it to be rich in information and encouragement that with whatever I was facing, God was there and was more than capable to meet my needs.  Mr. Evans related stories from his own experience as well as others in emphasizing points that helped make what he was saying easy to be understood.  This is a book of encouragement for anyone who is facing any struggles in their lives and is short and to the point and can easily be read over the course of a couple of hours, but the information shared in it will last a very long time. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in need of such encouragement or is just interested in reading a perspective about God meeting our needs based on Psalm 23.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
