Going Places with God: A Devotional Journey Through the Lands of the Bible by Wayne Stiles

Where does God want me to walk? What path do I take? These 90 devotional readings, each based on a specific biblical place, invite readers to embark on their own spiritual journey. As the spectacular backdrop of biblical lands unfolds, readers gain insights on how the lives of those in the Bible were shaped and influenced by the contours of the countries they lived in. Pertinent Scripture, historical quotes, and a prayer for each day further help the reader apply the truths of the devotion to their own journey of faith. Quality maps lend context to each reading. Through visiting these holy places through the pages of this book, the reader is invited to reshape his or her own life. They will also discover anew how God teaches us to trust in his love, protection, and provision for our lives.
