Great Read

This is one of the best books that I've read. I bought both the audio and paperback, just to get the most out of this study. The reader does a great job of conveying Bill's passion that is in the book. The book spoke so well to areas in my life that made it a relevant read. I actually played the audio version as I went about my day. This is a powerful and empowering book. It was just what I needed. I will be listening to this many more times. Highly recommend.

Amazing Book

This book is such a great tool for believers to remain hopeful and kingdom-minded! Bill has done an excellent job explaining practical ways and truths in the Bible on how to keep ourselves from being discouraged.

Tim Lundeen has done an excellent job reading it too. Recommended.

Premise is wrong!

What would have made Strengthen Yourself in the Lord better?

Rejecting the premise that the Lord is the author of testing. James 1:13 says that God is not the author of this testing. How did Jesus, Paul and the many other Apostles strengthen themselves in the Lord?

What was most disappointing about Bill Johnson’s story?

The character of David was not so hot when he was tempted while lusting after Bethsheba he did not strengthen himself in the Lord, nor did he seek the shelter of the Lord after he committed the adultery. To further hide his sin, he killed the husband of the woman he committed adultery with instead of trusting God to deal with the mess. See 2 Samuel 2:1 where David again asks God for direction (he did not ask where the woman was concerned).

How did the narrator detract from the book?

No life in the narration, like he is reading from some notes. WHAT is "...is a man after my own heart." Twice he uses the disciples in the boat to show their lack of faith (is that the only biblical examples he has?)

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed in the book. No commentary on the only time David did not strengthen himself in the Lord where Uriah The Hittite was concerned. David knew it was another man's wife! God could have and would have helped David (2 Sam. 12:8) but, David did not ask...

Any additional comments?

BTW, I listened to this three times...David and The Apostle Paul are my favorite leaders. How did Paul strengthen himself in the Lord? David was King, Prophet, Minstrel, and Psalmist; Paul was Prophet and later Apostle. I think we spend too much time in the Old Covenant and not enough time explaining the New Covenant and the Government of God for today and tomorrow.

Extremely helpful and encouraging

Extremely helpful, encouraging, and perspective correcting even in the toughest of challenging situations. The chapters on the importance of praise is particularly helpful. Ignore, misunderstand, and discount Bill Johnson to your own loss. This man is nothing short of genius in encouragement and teaching after God's heart and understanding His Word in the context of our own lives.

What you have

I've been drawn to this passage in David's life for a few years and felt God stirring me to rely less on others to encourage me. He is my courage.

This book brought together a few ideas for me and immediately made a difference.
- we've been given all we need for life and godliness
- feeding the multitude Jesus asked " what do you have?"

I have all the things Bill discusses and I've been reminded of the truths. Not formulas, the power of thanks and praise and worship and word. My expectations have realigned with His Kingdom now. Yay
