Here is encouragement for those times when you are impatient with your Christian walk.

In our instant society where we eat microwaveable meals and see serious problems resolved in less than half an hour on TV sitcoms, we resist waiting on the Lord. Yet God uses trials to test our patience and cultivate fruit in our lives.

Warren Wiersbe exhorts you to relax in God and enjoy

A great little book containing doctrinal and practical truths. The only problem with the book is that there is no Scripture Index or General Index in the book. Unless you have a great memory, you will not remember the information learned from the book.

I found this to be very light & easy reading. I didn't find anything wrong with the book until I got to the last chapter on page 147 where the authors states 'God cannot save you.' I found this statement to be contradictory to the scriptures which clearly tells us it's God that saves us, it's not of ourselves. I believe the author ascribes to a 'synergistic' viewpoint that aligns itself with Arminianism whereas I believe salvation is monergistic in that God initiates in every way, & we o ...more

This book by Warren Wiersbe is a nice little volume of 30 essays of 3-4 pages each, which makes them accessible. The book is subtitled learning to slow down and live. Some of the essays fit that description and some seemed very much unrelated. I was disappointed by the lack of a clear thread running throughout. On the other hand, this is an easy read from a good communicator. I particularly liked the essays God Isn't In a Hurry, Wanted: Hinge People, and Dig Up Those Bitter Roots. On the whole, ...more

Kind of a general addressing of problem areas in the modern, western church. Mostly it was well worth the read--some chapters were more "on" than others, but that's not that unusual. Many important thoughts. A good spur to greater devotion. I particularly enjoyed the first few chapters that focused on patience, waiting on God, etc. And then the chapter on the "Root of bitterness" was really insightful. Not a book that revolutionizes my walk, but worth the read.

Warren Wiersbe agrees with the Longstaff hymn by declaring, "It still takes time to be holy." Being my first full book to read from this author, I was surprised by his reach into the minds of Moody, Spurgeon, Chesterton and Morgan to substantiate his thoughts. This is a very good book, especially for anyone believing that God is growing impatient with their sincere desire to grow in faith and love.

“It has well been said that an opinion is something that you hold, but a conviction is something that holds you. Most of us have very few convictions, but the ones we do have are important to us. Convictions are the compasses of life - that keep us moving in the right direction. They are the foundation stones that help us to stand firm when everything around us is shaking and changing.” 1 likes
