This book is fascinating and delightful for its purpose. The inspiration of this book started on a day I woke up to God?s presence and the Bible verse (Ps. 23). It suddenly dawned on me while I was reading and I came to an understanding of each verse. The spirit of God inspired me to do it and I believe this because I had no rest of mind until I picked up my pen and wrote the first sentence. To this day I have been at rest since I began writing for Him.
Everyone who will love to practice God's love and have a personal relationship with Jesus will need to read this book. This book teaches willing person how he can be more effective in his daily life. Could it be that people have labelled you as nothing? It's one thing to suffer for doing wrong and something else entirely to suffer for doing right. However it happens, (Mark 6:48) said: through the night he saw them; through the storm he saw them and like a loving father he waited, he waited until the right time, until the right moment. He waited until he knew it was time to come, and then he came. What made it the right time?
God told me, son it is high time, I have chosen you and given you my words which are my commandments to go accordingly the way I want you to go. God said unto me son, ask something from me and I chose kindness. I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone; kind to the rich for they are afraid, kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me. God replied me saying son, go to the world and remember the way I dealt with you. This makes me believe Satan lost the battle over me from the day I was born.
One thing God reminds me is how to connect with Him. You have to believe and fear not; just believe in God not in man.
I am certain of one thing, God has not started with me yet, this is just a step forward and a goal set to achieve and I am very comfortable with it. Always hold these three points in your mind daily:
Firstly, quitters don't win, winners don't quit.
Secondly, always chase your dreams instead of running from your fear.
Thirdly, choice, not chance, determines human destination.
Finally dose yourself with this prayer, after each breakthrough: ?O GOD I am grateful for all of my problems?. After each breakthrough, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties. ?Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before? (Phi. 3:13). And I pray as you read along, the God almighty will deliver your message unto you through this book in Jesus name? AMEN.

When God turns to your side, everyone seems to look at your direction, God often searches for the heart of men (1 Sam 16:7). Let us Guard against turning back from the grace of God; let no one become like a bitter plant that grows up and causes many troubles with its poisoned leaves. Let us be more morally inspired than Esau, who for a single meal sold his birthright. If you can't sleep, don't count sheep, talk to the shepherd.
There is nothing a good person can do when everything falls apart. The LORD is in His holy temple; He has His throne in heaven. He watches people everywhere and knows what they are doing. No thief ever wants to be caught; likewise a police never expects to get shot. God is God; He watches from His throne; He examines us both good and bad. (Psalm 11:5). The LORD examines the good and the wicked alike; the lawless, He hates with all his heart.
