Review by Laura J. Davis
God is Faithful: A Daily Invitation into the Heart of God by the late Reverend David Wilkerson is a beautiful compendium of devotionals for an entire year.
The forward by his son Gary Wilkerson says it all: “In one of my last conversations with him before he went to be with Christ, my father told me we are no longer in the time of warning about difficulties to come – but that we are presently in those times of difficulty. During these times of difficulty, he said, our mission now is to encourage the faint, to strengthen those who have become weak and to lift high the name of Jesus – as lover of our souls, provider of our needs and great advocate fighting on our behalf against the evil one.”
The devotionals in this book will do exactly that – strengthen and encourage you. Unlike most devotionals that have a daily bible reading and a prayer, the God is Faithful devotional is instead like reading Rev. Wilkerson’s thoughts during his own private bible study and prayer times. They are insightful, moving and at times prophetic.
On April 27, 2011 Rev. Wilkerson posted this on his daily devotional blog: “To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights, and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, ‘I am with you. I cannot tell you right now, but one day it will make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident.” That afternoon, Rev. Wilkerson was killed in a car accident.
Full of wisdom and encouragement, this book will be something to keep by your bedside for years to come. I highly recommend it.
