By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:22-23   Most people study the fruit of the Spirit as if they must struggle to develop these qualities in their lives. They use the Bible to learn the secret to gaining mastery over their lives. It’s not the fruit of _____ (insert name). It’s the fruit of the Spirit. God produces fruit in your life when you remain connected to the vine (John 15:5). We don’t need to struggle to produce character changes in our lives any more than a pear must struggle to grow.

Destined to Soar by K.P. Yohannan My rating: 5 of 5 stars K.P. Yohannan masterfully lifts us up to a higher place where we can gain a new perspective on our troubles and how they fit into God’s plan. He doesn’t offer trite advice that minimizes our trials. Rather, he acknowledges that we will face all kinds of difficulties and yet he shows us how to navigate our difficulties with trust in God that overflows in joy and peace in the midst of trials. Destined to Soar could be used as a devotional book, with 37 short chapters on topics regarding humility, joy, obedience, unity, service, identity, grace, love, peace, and more. The author is a master storyteller and has a grip on Scripture that comes from living it out for many decades. This makes his writing powerful and effective in touching the reader at a point of need and offering healing and perspective. It’s always a joy to read books...
