Few preachers have the wisdom that the Holy Spirit has given Youssef, so I would enthusiastically recommend this book. I received the book yesterday and read almost the entire book in one sitting! I would highly recommend this book, along with Youssef's other books.
If your heart is bent towards the Lord and you are truly seeking Him, you will find Him in every aspect of your life. The instruction and promise Jesus gave in Matthew 7:7-11 is, "ask, seek and knock".
We must ask the question, "what is God's purpose for me through this or that?" And then proceed to ask Him in prayer, seek Him in His Word, continuing in prayer, and knock, or persist in prayer, to receive answers and direction. Sometimes the delay in answers to our prayers is a time of spiritual preparation and growth. But be assured, you will receive answers in God's timing. In our society of immediate gratification, it's the waiting that is most painful. I can completely sympathize because I am a "wanted it yesterday" type, but God is teaching me patience. In the process of slowing down, being forced to wait gives us opportunity to watch with anticipation for God's answer. In the watching we get to see Him work in our lives in a way we may have missed had we not been "waiting".
Dr Youssef draws on his own experiences in life in an honest and very easy to read way - always keeping the reader's attention and pointing us to our God's Sovereignty in the 'All things' of life.
In my own situation I found this book very comforting and it has given me a new hope for the future, knowing my God (and yours) is truly in control and also knowing that not one thing happens in our lives that He doesn't allow or permit. Be Blessed.
