DESPERATE FOR HIM By David Adesokan (A Review by Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko)
When David told me that he just published a book, I had no idea what the nature of the book will be. This is because I haven't seen David for over twenty years, and was not aware of the spiritual changes that he has undergone. I waited patiently to get a copy of the book, and to read it, and I am pleasantly surprised to see before me, a true man of God. The book spoke to my heart, especially as one convert to another. I will keep the same conversational tone that he uses in the book, in this review. I am happy and proud to see our young people giving their lives completely to God, and to hear them talk about God; His ways, His expectations from us, and His love for us with such passion. To paraphrase one of the Bible verse, God has chosen the young to shame the old. In Chapter 1 of the book, we learn about the author's personal encounter with the Lord. Meeting the Lord face to face is never the same experience for everybody. The description of what he experienced is truly a manifestation of God's great out-pouring of His love in David's life. To be in the presence of the Lord has its requirements. One must approach the Lord with a pure heart. In Chapter 2, we journey with David as he pursues the Lord. When one experiences the goodness of the Lord, there is nothing ever like it again. It is sweeter than honey. Anyone who experiences it will want to remain in that state of sweetness for ever. God is good. Chapter 3 takes us through all the state of being which separates us from communing with God. Those things we do that shut God out of our lives. God is a Spirit, and only in spirit, and not in flesh, can we be connected to Him, for the flesh is not pure.Read more ›
