Knowledge about God is a great accomplishment and something to grow in, but it is not the same as having felt His healing touch in our lives. Strengthening Your Good Heart - Daily Inspirations for the Growing Christian (paperback, 978-1-60791-004-6), a book that has been several years in the making, draws its name from Ezekiel 26:36, which says, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." This new release from Xulon Press author Samuel V. Main contains 365 daily inspirations along with additional holiday devotions that use Scripture and thoughts that God has placed in our hearts regarding His Word. Each devotional is designed to help apply the truth of God's Word in our lives and to help us each walk more intimately with God.
Says Main, "Too many times Christians sell themselves and God short by limiting His calling in our lives by our own natural abilities. God has made a habit of taking the least likely candidate and using them for His purpose. He has a purpose and a calling for each of us. This book is a result of obedience to His call to reach out to others with daily encouragement in everyday experiences that people relate to."
A graduate of Ball State University, Main has followed the call of God across the country, from his boyhood home of Indiana to California, back to Indiana and finally North Carolina. When he was younger, God restored his heart from much of its brokenness and he soon began to grow in the knowledge of Him. Now he hopes to help others feel that same healing touch in their lives: "[God] desires for us an abundant life that develops as we grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. This growth brings freedom from the traps that our enemy sets to enslave us."
