God Knows My Name

My Review:

In the book, God Knows My Name, Never Forgotten, Forever Loved, by Beth Redman, you get an insight into the very nature of who God is and what you mean to Him. This book was such a refreshing read for me during a time of dryness in my life and a constant reminder that God is still present and working for my good at all times in my life even if I don't think He is.

You are given an intimate look at God as your helper, your defender, your restorer and how God sees you from your past into the future that remains unknown to us, but in perfect alignment to His will. I think this book is a great gift to purchase for those that doubt whether their own past mistakes prevent them from truly knowing the love and goodness of God and His unconditional love for us.

In a society that defines worth by material possessions, professional success, and physical beauty, it is often difficult to feel worthy of God’s love and forgiveness. Sometimes, those who are closest to us, even parents and siblings, can deeply damage our hearts by rejecting the person God has created us to be in Him. God Knows My Name: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved is Beth Redman’s confident declaration that believers do not have to bow beneath these feelings of rejection and worthlessness.

Redman readily recognizes that no matter how good and whole we are, there are days when we all feel misunderstood, blamed, forgotten, and rejected. She wants readers to recognize these feelings for what they truly are—the enemy’s attempt to make us feel anonymous, illegitimate, and unfit to be recognized by our Heavenly Father. In the face of the world’s damaging message, Redman boldly declares that if we are God’s child, He has lovingly called us and chosen us for His glory. God bestows great worth and significance upon His children, and it is within His grace alone we will find meaning and purpose.

Evangelist and author Beth Redman shares her heart through poignant, vulnerable stories from her own life when she experienced the rejection of her father. Using scripture and tender assurances of God’s love, God Knows My Name reminds readers that God created them and loves them deeply despite their flaws and failures. Redman wants readers to know with certainty that God’s love is not the whimsical, uncertain love that is often shown to us by our earthly family and friends, but a deep, unfailing love that allows us to find our sense of worth in Him despite what others think about us. This encouraging book lets readers know that they are not alone in their struggles and that they are significant to God because He has chosen them for His glory.

I received this book, compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review and would easily give this one a perfect 4.5 out of 5 stars. For more information on this book, the author and where to get your own copy, click on the links below:
