5 Books God Used to Change My Life

2 Timothy 4:13

In this article, I’m going to talk about 5 books that God used to change my life. I’m not saying that these books will change your life; for a book to change your life, you have to be in a certain season of life with certain needs that match the topic of that book. I also won’t be listing these books by importance but rather by the order in which I read them. 

7 Signs God Is Exposing a Religious Narcissist to You

Philippians 1:15-18

A “narcissistic personality disorder” is a term used in psychology to identify a particular mental health condition that is marked by symptoms such as an overblown sense of one’s own importance, an extreme need for continual praise by others, and a lack of the ability to empathize with others.1   

3 Reasons Jesus’ Incarnation Is Needed for a Godly Relationship

1 Peter 2:21-22

I’m posting this video on Christmas Eve, so I thought it only right to focus on Jesus’ incarnation. But I also know many of you read these articles for biblical relationship advice.

4 Things God Will Do When a Nation Turns from Him

Isaiah 1:16-20

Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they are utterly estranged. Why will you still be struck down? Why will you continue to rebel? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but bruises and sores and raw wounds; they are not pressed out or bound up or softened with oil. Your country lies desolate; your cities are burned with fire; in your very presence foreigners devour your land; it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.” (Isaiah 1:4-7)

Here are 4 things God will do when a nation turns from him.

3 Signs God Is Saying, “Trust My Sovereignty!”

Psalm 146:3-6

Who will win the election? Who does God want me to marry? What does this bad report from the doctor mean? Why did my ex break up with me? How will the economy affect me and my family? What if the person I did not vote for becomes president? When will God show me my calling?

Life is full of so many questions. Every day brings new concerns, new issues, and new tests for our faith in Jesus as his followers. While God does care about the details of our lives, while our individual choices certainly do have a good and bad consequences, and while we are not called to just stick our head in the sand and ignore the issues we see all around us, as Christians, ultimately God always expects us to remember his sovereignty so we might fully trust him.

So here are 3 signs God is saying, “Trust my sovereignty!”

My point in this article is to simply point out 4 common signs that will be present when God wants you to stop interacting with someone on social media.
