Description from the product page:
"Are you satisfied with your lifestyle? Can you achieve and maintain your God-given destiny? Is it possible to receive prosperity from God’s perspective? You may be thinking; how do I take my life to the next level? Prosperity in God’s kingdom includes; peace, wealth, health, honor, faith, favor, love, and more. There is no limit to the measure of prosperity that you can encounter in life. The more knowledge you have about God, coupled with wisdom, the more prosperity you will receive. Understanding and performing the steps outlined in this book (Taking Your Life to The Next Level), will help you accomplish this."
I can't help but to agree with the statement on page 3 that "This book will help you understand destiny from God’s perspective and the do’s and don’ts in order to walk in it."
One of my regular prayers I prayed for my children before I sleep is for my children to grow up to be a God-fearing and God-loving child, one that walks according His ways and be an example of how a Christian should be. I do want to see that in my children as I am partly responsible (besides my husband who works hard for our family) in raising them up and would definitely want them to live their destiny according to God's way.
I do agree with the author on his statement in page 3 as well "God will not give you a destiny which will make you struggle and miserable." as one of my pastors used to tell us 'God's will, God's bill', if He can bring you TO it, He will surely bring you THROUGH it.
I also love the example given by the author on how we touch God's heart when we thanked Him. I too agree that we should be thankful regardless of the good or bad things that happened in our life. I started a few weeks ago to teach my boy to give thanks to God before we sleep and there are few times when my almost 4 years old boy reminded me that we should pray and say thank you God. I taught him to say his thanks for what happened that day, to tell God whether we are sick or have any pains and to pray to God for His protections over us.
In summary, this is a wonderful book that reinforces my beliefs in how we should live our life according to His ways.
