It should come as no surprise that the teachings found in the Bible often conflict with our thoughts and behaviors. This conflict sets the stage for My "I" Problem with God's Word: Daily Devotions 1-50 ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-138-5), a new release from Xulon Press author Rick Metrick, Ph.D. These devotions, written in the first person, describe the reader's spiritual journey as they venture through the struggle of living God's Word. From the first paragraph, the reader becomes the "I," allowing God to expose personal sin and the struggle of exchanging worldly ways for holy living, ultimately bringing them through to victory.
Says Dr. Metrick, "These simple ramblings assist you in conforming to God's will for your life. These devotions [will] guide the believer through the unavoidable spiritual struggle between God's will and self will."
With the heart of a pastor, the insight of a scholar, and the wisdom of a counselor, Dr. Metrick helps growing believers confront and conquer the challenges of living the Word of God in enemy territory. His writings reflect a depth of authenticity and spirituality seldom seen among his peers. From his youth, his life has been devoted to knowing God, and through this deep devotion, the Spirit of God has allowed him knowledge of the Word, passion for the Lord, and the ability to enter into the experiences of others and touch their lives.
Dr. Rick Metrick is the senior pastor of Jones Memorial Baptist Church and the director of Total Life Counseling, Inc. He is also the founder of justhonorgod.com, host of godswakeupcall.mypodcast.com, and author of The Yawning Church: A Survival Guide for the Church of the Twenty-first Century.
