Faith In Action
The Kingdom Of The Flowers by Rick Nau is a marvellous Christian tale and just perfect for ages ten and above. It is the fourth book in A Tale Of Hope series but can be read as a stand-alone.
No matter how old you are, you will be blessed by this re-working of the familiar Biblical tale of Joseph. We witness the faithfulness of an ever present God who will never leave us. We also see the strong faith of the main character who never wavers in his belief that God is good even when circumstances are not.
We are urged to pray about everything and to worry about nothing. Prayer is just talking to God. “He often speaks to Him [God] in the same way you’d speak to a friend.” God wants each and every one of us to know that we can boldly approach His throne. If something concerns us then it concerns him also. Nothing is ever too big or too small for God.
We need to be careful of the voices we listen to. “She was awful… She was absolutely unloveable.” These are lies from the enemy but when we are drowning in guilt, we may listen to him. Instead we should listen to the life affirming voice of God who tells us that we are loved and we are His. There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus.
The tale is a cautionary one. We need to be aware as to what we are building our lives on. A prison is still a prison even if it glitters with gold. If we build our lives on pretty things and the love of money, we are like the man who built his house on the sand, it will not last. We need to build our lives on the Word of God. We need to feel ‘at home’ with God and not be entrapped by riches.
We witness the goodness of a kind heart, a heart surrendered to God that tries to help in all situations.
I am loving this A Tale Of Hope series. Each book is rich in godly content and beautifully written. It is a series that should stand side by side with Narnia by C.S. Lewis on your bookshelf.
Whatever your age, these A Tale Of Hope stories are just perfect as we see the goodness of God and faith in action.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
