You may think you're not ready to make a difference in God's Kingdom or that you're too young for others to take seriously. But that's not what God thinks.
At some point, you have to understand your own purpose and significance in the kingdom of God. How does God want to use you? This book uses the Old Testament leader Joshua as a model for stepping up to God's big calling. Before Joshua, Moses was the one who had spoken to God, performed miracles, and challenged Pharaoh. But at some point, Joshua had to come out to the front. So what did he do? How did he step up? And what steps can you take to seize "now" for yourself?
Now is your time. If you will be steadfast and unmovable, and always abound in what God is calling you to do, you'll see that it will not be in vain. He has a plan, a destiny for your life. Now means "not later." Now means "don't wait." God wants to do great things.

This book was received as an ARC from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. I could not get enough of the approach Jonathan Evans took to this book and how he incorporated his time in the NFL in comparison to Joshua and Moses' battles with evil and Pharaoh. Having a connection with your higher power is one of the greatest gifts I have ever gotten and this book is clear validation on why. Whenever you have something on your mind that is causing struggle, your time is now to act on it whether you want to see change or not. Always remember that God has a plan for you and remember just because certain events don't happen when you want them to, does not mean that they are not bound to happen for you. I also love the direct tone Jonathan used throughout the book. I felt like he was preaching and I was in the audience shouting AMEN! I know a lot of people in our library community will really be interested in this book. We will consider adding this title to our B Non-Fiction collection at our library. This is why we give this book 5 stars.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is 9 chapters of life-changing values on how to live for Jesus. It will help you figure out what you need to do in your life to move you in the direction God has chosen you.
Walking in the footsteps of his family, Mr. Evans gives us sound advice and biblical truths to help inspire us to keep going. It is a challenging read that will make you think and reflect. It will also encourage you to pray and ask God in what direction you should move. Although i know nothing about football, using that analogy, as well as examples from his own personal life, It was easily understandable for me. It will also make you think back to what God has said to you and prompt you to listen for his voice in the future. This is a book you will want to refer to in the future.
