Pause for Power by Warren W Wiersbe

Pause for Power is a comprehensive update of Wiersbe's original devotional and includes three additional books of the Bible as well as updated reflections and prayers. This year-long study includes thoughtful examination of the Old Testament books of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Isaiah, as well as the New Testament books of Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Hebres, James, 1 Peter and 1 John. Wiersbe's traddemark voice remains the same throughout the book, and he continues to encourage readers to make personal application of God's Word to every situation of their lives.

Developing an intimate relationship with Christ is a life-long process, and the study of His Word is one of the primary avenues through which we learn and draw closer to Him. Wiersbe's ability to explore and explain the Bible serves as a foundational resource for this year-long devoational that offers bite-sized pieces of wisdom that will carry readers through a great deal of Scripture in a single year. Pause for Power will make the perfect gift for friends and family who look forward to a new devotional to strenghten their daily walks during 2011!

My Thoughts:

I think this is an excellent collection of verses with very insightful commentary on each verse that will help anyone who is interested in walking close to God to find just a moment to pause for power for their daily walk. The book is nicely bound for gift-giving (even a very-merry-unbirthday gift for yourself!). Wiersbe does an excellent job of using scriptures to help you focus your day on God and His desire for your life based on what you can learn from the scriptures. Each daily devotional only takes up one page so it will be quite easy to read in just a few moments (which is sometimes all we're willing to spare from our own daily lives) and ends with a Point to Ponder that helps to bring the scripture to heart. I believe this is an excellent daily devotional and would make an excellent gift. I give this book a 4/5.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book. I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine
