Read a Book Monday: “Jehovah Jireh, God Provides” by Mary J. Nelson

If you are looking for an encouraging book for the rest of Lent, I have it.  Recently I read a devotional that was extremely moving.  It was one that made me think and reaffirmed that God does provide for His children.  He provides for all of our needs, physical, emotional, and spiritual.  All we have to do is ask.  You will love this inspiring book.  It is amazing.

“Jehovah Jireh: The God Who Provides” by author Mary J. Nelson is a 254 page paperback devotional by Barbour Publishing with thick, durable pages. This book is meant to be read and last. Divided into sixty short chapters this is a wonderful book for daily inspiration. The chapters have a story, about a person, some Biblical, followed by a devotional or life application study on what this means to us and how to apply it to our lives. Concluding with a prayer on the chapter’s subject, this gives readers time to bring what they have read and learned to God for His help in their own lives.

This is the first book I have read by author Nelson and I loved it. She did a fantastic job of researching and organizing her work. Her book brings glory to God, is easy to read and understand, is relatable, interesting, deep, and encouraging. Everything a reader needs in a devotional or Christian book is in it.

The topics are abundant and will certainly touch most everyone. Reading about trusting God, forgiveness, burdens, trials, contentment, hope, and rejoicing are just a few things the reader will find in this gem of a book. The author gives multiple stories that Jehovah Jireh, our God does indeed provide for us, always. The devotions are thought provoking and will stay with you long after you close the book. You will be encouraged and ready to face your day with a smile.

I would highly recommend this book. It is excellent. Not only will you delve into scripture, you will be moved, enlightened, and encouraged. This is a book that will help you draw closer to Jehovah. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”  Matt. 6:33 NLT
