It doesn't take too much living before we realize that life never goes quite the way we want it to. But when things get hard and we don't understand what God is doing, what is our first impulse? Is it to resist him and run away like Jonah? Or is it to trust him even while trembling in fear of suffering like Habakkuk? In this powerful exploration of God's often mysterious and counterintuitive ways, Dr. Larry Crabb challenges readers to seize the opportunities for growth and maturity that come our way when we experience troubles and failures. Rather than pushing back against adversity, he invites us to look closer at what God is doing in our lives when it feels like he is far from us. Unpacking the stories of two very different prophets, Crabb lights the way to a life of resting in the goodness of a God who is always working out his plan for our lives.

When Jesus wasn’t ministering to people, He was teaching the disciples how to do what He did. “The Way to Follow the Way” is a step by step instruction manual in learning to follow Jesus who is the Way, using the same methods He used to teach His disciples. • Why do people struggle with their old sinful nature? • What actually changes when you’re born again? • How do you receive everything you need for life and godliness? • What were the final instructions of Jesus? These questions and many more will be answered with clear, concise and detailed information. It begins with why we believe in the God of creation, quickly explains the knowledge explosion Daniel prophesied would happen in the last days, then proceeds to the first steps a Christian takes and continues all the way through with how to make more disciples the same way Jesus did. After Jesus ascended back to Heaven and the disciples started to spread the Gospel, they went about praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved. Wouldn’t you like to have the ability to positively influence the people where you live? www.omega-ministries.com

How could a hard-hearted killer and Jesus-hater become the greatest-ever advocate for Christianity? Only because of the completeness of the transforming work of Christ. That man, who became known as the apostle Paul, later wrote to the Christians in Rome, thoroughly explaining the unique greatness and power of God’s good news. Everyone is dead toward God because of sin and stands condemned, but anyone may gain right standing with Him through Jesus Christ. This rightness can come only by believing—by faith. Nothing can earn, buy, or be exchanged for it. And it brings new life and inner change. This easy-to-use study of the first eight chapters of Romans offers open-ended discussion questions, Bible passages, and helpful explanations and applications to help you, or you and your group, grasp the wonder and transforming power of God’s work in your life.

One thing is for certain, we serve a God that wants you to succeed in relationships. More importantly, your singleness matters to God. God wants you to discover who you are in Him while single. Prayerfully, if you are single, God wants you to understand your value and that you can experience victory even when you are by yourself. Singleness is not a curse. Your value doesn't decrease. Your worth shouldn't be questioned. No one should ever look over you because you are focused on your relationship with Christ. If you have ever felt lonely, experienced depression because you are single, cried yourself to sleep because someone broke your heart, this devotional is to help restore those broken pieces. This is the perfect time-while single-to become who God has called you to be. You are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation, and your relationship with Christ is the most important relationship that you and I have to steward over while single. Desperation will encourage you to get ahead of God and settle, but destiny will inspire you to wait on God's best. I made a choice over twenty years ago, as a teenager, to pursue purity and the presence of God. I made a vow to God that I would stay single until my heart lined up with God's Word. I prayed that God would use my singleness to help this next generation and young adults to have a strategy to deal with singleness in a kingdom way. Single Until is a resource to embrace your singleness and to walk in the confidence of the Lord.

This daily devotional book has been a God-led inspiration from its very start-up; from its original Bible verse and note of encouragement to some coworkers and family members to people around the world via my email network. Our God is so awesome! I've had people return emails to me or speak to me and ask, "How did you know that I needed that today?" or "How did you know I was going through this?" That is when I thankfully remind them that God inspired each and every one of these devotionals. I am just being faithful and following His directions. Now I'm led to put them into a year of daily devotions book to reach others. Occasionally, my emailed devotionals have colored photographs that I take as God inspired message for the day. Unfortunately, I couldn't include those in this book. I did include a photo in grayscale at the beginning of each month; the cover photo is a God-blessed look at an Alaskan sunset. I am so thankful that God is working in my life. I want to encourage each of you to grasp hold of whatever gift He has blessed you with and step out in trust and faith to go forth and to share it with others. When you feel down, just start counting each of the blessings God has touched you with in your life; and you will feel His Presence and comfort to encourage you. We are never alone; He is just a prayer away; nothing is impossible for our God. He is not done with us yet. He is asking us to be obedient in our service to Him, and He will help us grow in our faith. Trust in Him, and you will be astounded at what He has in store for you.

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the revered Sathya Bodhaka (Teacher of Truth), in His infinite grace, permitted a select band of students and academics of Sri Sathya Sai University to participate in spiritual retreats, organised in Kodaikanal during four summers. Bhagawan Baba answered in the traditional Upanishadic style, questions on a wide range of topics - political, economic, social, psychological, metaphysical, ethical, educational, scientific, cultural, and spiritual. These conversations indeed constitute an Upanishad for modern living. Prof. Anil Kumar, an academician and well known devotee of Baba, compiled them in two volumes under the title 'Satyopanisad', in three parts, viz. Samskriti and Sadhaka (Volume I), and Sadhana (Volume II). These two volumes are highly beneficial to devotees seeking answers to genuine spiritual doubts.
