Benaiah is someone you probably wouldn’t noticed easily while reading Scripture, but it shouldn’t be the case since he dared to chase a lion into a pit! This book encourages us to do the same! This is our moment to face our battles and kill some giants.
This book is really, really good.
I enjoyed learning and relearning the principles the author is teaching.
I could feel all my excuses dying little by little. We’re lion chasers for God’s glory. We were not called to be safe, but to conquer the land our Lord has given us.
I absolutely loved the message this book is bringing us. I especially loved the concept that holiness is not only about the things we shouldn’t do, but also about those things we should be doing, like facing our fears and killing some giants.
All our present battles are preparing us for a great future if we choose to see them as opportunities to grow and learn, so let’s fight with everything in us!
This is a book to encourage us and to make us understand that we’re supposed to be risk takers.
I got a bit overwhelmed by Benaiah’s story because it’s mentioned a lot! However, I know that’s the very heart of this book, so I won’t complain about it!
I’m thankful for this read.
