The Shelter of God's Promises by Sheila Walsh

Provision, peace, confidence, love, grace, hope, strength, more and home – aren’t these things each of long to find in our lives?

In The Shelter of God’s Promises, Sheila Walsh uses Scripture and stories from her own life and the lives of others to share the gems of truth in God’s promises to provide those things.  In an easy-to-read style she pulls those promises together under the over-arching idea of shelter.  She relates how Christ, as the fulfillment of all of God’s promises, not only provides us shelter, but He IS our Shelter. 

Sheila had me at the introduction of her book, laying the foundation with an application in her life of one of my favorite passages of Scripture – Exodus 33 – where God places Moses in the cleft of the rock and promises Moses shelter until He has passed by.  I was inspired by the reminders of how much God cares for each of us, for me individually, how I can stake my life on the promises He provides in His Word, and how I can rest in Christ as the Cleft of the Rock.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for hope, or anyone wanting to enjoy a reminder of all that God offers.

At the end of the book are questions on each chapter to encourage the reader to look deeper at personal applications of each topic.
