My Review:
 We all struggle at some point with the ultimate God providing for us. It doesn't matter how confident a believer seems to be on the outside, I guarantee you they have cried out to God at one time or another because they need Him to provide something for them. The need could range from small like passing a test or please let the store have those items I needed to great such as job, house, car, marriage needs. Bottom line, we need God to provide for us. Yes, we are a needy people but He is awesome God that wants us to completely rely on Him and only Him for all of our needs no matter how great or small.

 God has been a comfort for me for so long. I don't know or even want to know what it would be like if He wasn't. The author gets that so she has put together a very comforting and encouraging blend of all God has to offer in devotion form. Something that we can use on a daily basis to reaffirm His promises to us. A great way to stay inspired and encouraged.

Sixty story-based meditations and stories, plus passionate prayers for provision, will guide you as you pray the scriptures into your personal life, drawing you ever closer to the Ultimate Provider, while compelling true stories—both biblical and modern—lead you to discover that He is all you'll ever need.

 My favorite was Linda's story. I to have been in that place of untruths people tell. When we as the proposed victim doesn't have a clue what is going on behind our backs. It is discouraging and sad. We feel defeated and don't know where we can turn. Thankfully, there is still hope for us!
