This book is about the manifold wisdom of God and His intent for the creation of man. Was the eating of the fruit from the tree of good and evil to the advantage of man? Considering that all things come together for good for them that love God, how did this event help man against the devil's plan? These are the questions that will be addressed in this book. In order to align ourselves to the will of God and to fulfilling His purpose, we need to know why God created the earth, what His purpose was and His intention. Remember, Christ said "I have come to do thy will oh God", and "let thy will be done on earth at it is in heaven." In the same way, we need to do the will of God. Also, Jesus said if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough to do great things! (Luke 17:6, Matthew 17:20). Jesus in this scripture is simply saying if you assess a situation and you think that you only see 1% chance of success (as small as a grain of mustard seed), but you choose to believe that tiny 1% chance, ignoring the 99% odds that is against you succeeding, this is what faith is about. Elijah prayed for rain and the only evidence he saw was a small cloud but he concluded that God had answered his prayers. Then, there was a heavy outpouring of rain. The problem is we want to see a perfect or 99% chance of success before taking actions. We want to see the sky covered with great clouds before we believe that rain will fall. You must be convinced beyond any reasonable doubts that 1% chance of success is enough to deliver to you your desired success. Most often God wants to work with the 1% chance of success if you only believe. This is what God did through Gideon with 1% strength by reducing his army from 32, 000 to 300 men.
For various reasons, some of us enjoy more of the first and suffer less of the second. For other people the reverse is true. In this book we identify some of the underlying reasons and explore some ways to make a positive difference.

There is a unique story in each of us. Where that story begins, how it unfolds and how it will end are vital parts of our considerations. We are usually pretty clear about how it is currently unfolding but the other two ends of the spectrum are often clouded or confused by conflicting religious beliefs and mythology. The objective of this series, "Pleasure and Pain", is to shed some light on the process by which we grow in spirit. After almost 50 years of working as a psychologist, visiting over 36 countries and working with thousands of people who have told me their story, I can see some patterns to our spiritual growth. I can also see good reasons to put aside many religious teachings and more clearly focus on the nature of the human spirit. This means that instead of looking at "Original Sin" we need to focus on our "Original Blessings" and recognize that we are eternal beings. But the Gift of Eternal Life involves both pleasure and pain. For various reasons, some of us enjoy more of the first and suffer less of the second. For other people the reverse is true. In this book we identify some of the underlying reasons and explore some ways to make a positive difference.

What is it about The GIFT that makes it worth having and keeping handy for repeated reference? What is it about this book that causes people to refuse to lend it out for fear that they might not get it back? And what is it that inspires people to treat it like an heirloom – not wanting their children to grow up without knowledge of its contents? It has to be about what the book offers between its covers. Very true – so let’s take a brief look at what’s in store for those who are interested in making a sound investment towards something which many individuals out of Christ might consider to be a fantasy, but would like to have their copy anyway (and hold on to it) because they too can benefit tremendously from it. The Gift is based on a practical concept that ultimately becomes a cherished relationship lifestyle; a concept that is so pregnant with marriage-preservation content that those who become impregnated with this concept will make marriage attractive even to many of those who are turned off by it. At the core of this concept is its ultimate destination – the motivation that gives it life and sustained consistency. In its Ultimate Destination the title of the book becomes relevant and becomes the life-blood of the mutual commitment to adhere to the Gold Standard of caring for each other. Then there is GIFT-care: Two hundred and seventy-four recommendations for caring for your marriage (or the one that you will some day have). In this marriage-enrichment book, the Royal status of the born-again individual is brought into focus and its place in marriage enrichment is laid out. This chapter shows disrespect the door. In dealing with the fact of one’s royal status in Christ, this author takes the reader to the core of the fascinating world of authentic Christian Identity and shows how it can and is supposed to impact marriage in the most positive ways. Then there are the responsibilities of Royalty: Here too we are treated to a plethora of potentially life-transforming facts – a transformation that elevates self-concept to new highs and changes the fulfillment zip code of the marriage itself. In this book, the author also deals with the practicality of Royalty. Have you ever wondered how your marriage would be affected if you were to see both yourself and your spouse through the eyes of God? This author takes you there – Don’t miss it. If you and your spouse are both born-again of the Holy Spirit, do you know that to treat each other any less than as Royalty is highly offensive to God? You owe it to yourself, your marriage and your spouse to get this book and see why this is so. Watch your home prosper as you make good use of this information.

Real people face real fears! Dr. Hicks inspires you to discover that God has designed a way to help you cope with the fears in your life. There are many statements in Scripture that either explicitly or implicitly teach us not to fear. What you may not have discovered is that for every one of those there is a promise from God to help you overcome the fear. With each devotional you will find a "fear not" and a "promise" from Scripture. As you discover and appropriate those promises, your fears should begin to subside. You will find yourself identifying with the stories that illustrate Bible truths about fear; be encouraged as you discover a blend of the spiritual and the therapeutic in coping with fear; and confront your personal fears and discover God's overcoming promises through each Scripture-rich, life-applied devotional.
