This devotional guide is a wonderful companion to Life Without Lack by Dallas Willard. Where Willard’s book explores what life is like under the watchful eye of the Good Shepherd, detailing the character of God, Trusting God for Everything makes it personal, experiential and memorable. If you’re a pastor, you might want to build a seven-week series based on Psalm 23 (Life Without Lack) and encourage small groups to use this guide as a discussion starter.
Many Christians report that the single most-important thing that they did that brought lasting spiritual transformation to their lives was adopting the rhythm of doing a daily examen. The examen is a simple exercise, taking as little as 10 minutes, but with a little honesty and commitment, can yield transformative results.
