Day 1 of the August challenge from Books and Cupcakes!
What I’m reading:
I am currently reading Blessings & Curses: The Keys to Lasting Change by John Visser.
“ I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live” – Deuteronomy 30:19
From the back of the book:
Both blessings and curses are biblical realities! While we prefer to dwell on blessings, honesty compels us to admit that curses are every bit as much as part of biblical reality. Accordingly, this book aims to answer three questions:
- What are blessings and curses? What do they look like and where do they come from?
- How are they passed on from one generation to the next?
- What are the provisions God has made in Christ to break the power of the curse and replace it with the blessing?
Filled with numerous *heart wrenching I might add* true stories of redemption and hope, Blessings and Curses: The Key to Lasting Change illustrates how Jesus delivers us from the power of the curse and restores us to the promised blessings of God.
I’d spill all the beans on the book, except I’m a slow reader and not done yet haha So far it’s been amazing to learn all about God covenant promises to us, and how we fit into the family of God. Great read just like all the other of John Vissers books that I have read so far!
