God Guarantee by Jack Alexander

God Guarantee


"Not enough" is the theme of our day. Fear, scarcity, and inequality dominate the media cycle and are constant companions in our culture. While 74 percent of Americans believe in God, we can feel our world changing in ways that simply seem out of control. We want to cling to a sovereign and loving God who tells us repeatedly in Scripture to "fear not," yet it is estimated that nearly 90 percent of his followers have a scarcity mentality rooted in fear. 

Five times in Scripture, Jesus showed us a pattern to deal with fear and how to access his abundant provision, both spiritually and practically. In The God Guarantee, Jack Alexander uncovers the four steps in this pattern, showing readers how to live it out in order to experience true abundance. Far from a prosperity gospel, this book is not about how to get rich quick, how to manage your money, or how to give it all away. Instead, it will change the reader's conversations about finances completely and, as a result, will transform the way they see and access God's provision in every single area of their lives.

My Thoughts:
The God Guarantee is a great book about how to move from a place of fear to a place of freedom. Our culture has taught us to live in a place of not enough. We need to stop living in that place and trust God. He is enough. We need to live in a place where we can bless others and know that it all has been supplied. This book is about living generously, blessing those in our community, trusting God not letting the enemy get into our head. I think the truths in this book are simple, but good. Jack gives the reader a lot to think about. I love how he talks about the place where God provides. I thought those were some great pages in the book. Ultimately, I found this book to have some great insight. I give this book a 4/5 stars. A favorable review was not required. Thank you to the publishing company for sending me a copy for my honest review.
