God's Covenant With You For Your Family by John Eckhardt

When first receiving this book in the mail and holding it in my hands I wondered how such a small paperback could have much in it. I was wrong! I told myself then, “Do not judge a book by it's cover!” This may be a small paperback but it's contents are rich and concentrated. I have heard of John Eckhardt's book, “Prayers That Rout Demons” but to be honest, I haven't as yet read it. After reading this book I am considering the others now. This book speaks mostly about God's covenant as the title suggests. It is not something I have studied before and highly recommend it to you. It will give you, as it has me, greater confidence in your relationship with our Lord. Reading this book reminds me of my own bible study notes in a way. The author breaks things down and writes out descriptions of particular words. This brings a greater understanding. I like how the author has taken the time to write out scripture and make it into personal prayers/declarations. Example of this are: “The word of the Lord is proven in my family. It is a shield to all of us who trust in Him.” (2 Samuel 22:31) “The Lord heals the brokenhearted in my family and binds up their wounds.” (Psalm 147:3) Once I got into this book I thought the small size of it was actually good! One could easily keep this in your purse, laptop bag or lunch cooler and take out when you have a few minutes. I really needed this book. I didn't realize how much. I had forgotten about how powerful praying the scriptures and making declarations was! I can see this book as well as the others John Eckhardt wrote as being something any Christian could be benefited by in their walk with our Lord. It has certainly been of help to me. I recommend it highly! I received this book for free in exchange for a free book review from the Charisma House publishing book review program. ( I was not required to write a favorable review.
