Is God more than enough?


Have you ever wondered if Psalm 23 was just a beautiful poem filled with promises you could never claim?  Has it ever occurred to you that this poem addresses every need you will ever encounter.  Tony Evans, in his book “God Is More Than Enough”, breaks down Psalm 23 your five most critical needs, Spiritual, Directional, Emotional, Physical and Eternal.  He shows how God is more than enough to meet each of these needs if you will lay them in His hands.

Psalm 23 was written by David during a period of intense circumstances.  He knew that in order to receive the goodness of God’s promises, he had to be still and let God take over.  Evans shows how God is faithful and is always at work on our behalf.

Even though Evans’ book is short, it is filled with wisdom and encouragement.   The chapter on Directional Needs was a big help to me showing me how I tend to focus on my circumstances and doing something to find God’s will instead of resting in God and seeking His Word in quiet meditation.    This chapter, like all the others, had some very powerful quotes.  My favorite is “A truly intelligent faith sets fire to the soul; it is objective truth resulting in passionate expression. Nobody wants a love they can’ feel.  Nobody wants a love that doesn’t set them on fire.”   God wants passionate people—people filled with a faith full of fire.

This is not just another book on a familiar passage.  Evans’ insight and wisdom gives a different perspective on Psalm 23.  If you are looking for some positive encouragement, you will enjoy “God Is More Than Enough”.

Tony Evans, president of The Urban Alternative and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas, is the author of numerous books.  He and his wife, Lois, have four children.
