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.
In the words of the Trappist monk, Thomas Merton, “There is only one problem on which all my existence, my peace, and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I will find myself and if I find my true self I will find Him.”
Rather than choosing to discover ourselves or encounter God, this short, but insightful book by David Benner, guides us along a new path which permits us to uncover our identity in Christ and learn who God is at the same time.
