Beloved pastor and bestselling author Dr. Charles Stanley was dedicated to knowing Christ and making Him known. In his final book, Trusting God with Today: 365 Devotions (Thomas Nelson; hardcover; October 17, 2023), Dr. Stanley inspires readers to see how God transforms our hearts and lives when we trust Him with an unknown future.
Dr. Stanley was guided by Biblical truths. He believed that God's Word is full of promises and guidance, and that "trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees." Dr. Stanley also knew that trusting God in difficult times can be a challenge. "When things are going our way, trusting God is easy," writes Dr. Stanley in TRUSTING GOD WITH TODAY. "But when overwhelming battles, painful trials, unmet needs, or lost hopes assail us, we may be tempted to ask, can we still trust Him?"
In Trusting God with Today Dr. Stanley resoundingly answers yes, patiently guiding readers to trust and believe in God's love and rest in His purpose. With this daily devotional, readers will work to grow that trust in God day by day, bringing greater joy and peace than we could ever find leaning on our own understanding.
Each entry Trusting God with Today includes a Bible verse, a prayer, and inspirational teaching. Page by page, Dr. Stanley lovingly reiterates that:
- No matter what is happening in the world or in your life, God is faithful
- You can release anxiety and embrace God's rest as you stop trying to figure it all out yourself
- Trusting God one day at a time leads to contentment and satisfaction as He makes your paths straight
"Every challenge presents an opportunity for the Lord to display His faithfulness and love," said Dr. Stanley. "Rejoice that God faces the coming days with you forevermore." With Dr. Stanley's patient guidance in Trusting God with Today, make a commitment to trust God and train yourself to look beyond what you can see to what God sees.
Trusting God with Today makes a wonderful gift for Christmas, Easter, birthdays, and graduations, or for anyone who longs to trust God more deeply in an uncertain world today and every day.
