Beyond Head Knowledge Naomi Fata
Have you been a Christian for many years but find that your life is lacking the joy and peace promised in the Bible? Naomi finds herself in this situation and begins to search for the promises of God as revealed in Scripture
This book is one of self-examination and inner seeking, searching for the truths of the Bible to be evidenced in my life. Observing my own life and the lives of other Christians, I saw so little victory in Christ, deep inner joy, or peace that seemed to come from a supernatural source. I knew all these things were promised to us in Scripture but had to ask why they were not a reality in my own life. With all fervency I tried to follow God, but I could not seem to achieve the Christian life Christ spoke of in the Gospels. In serving God I sensed Christian acts done out of deep brokenness instead of wholeness. At times I even wondered why I would want someone to become a Christian if there was no healing for our hearts until we get to heaven. As I examined my own faith, I became convinced that, true to His Word, God would heal brokenness and that I could live an abundant, joy-filled Christian life on earth. Working with the general public for nearly ten years, I noticed the vast amounts of pain people carry around with them. In this sin-cursed world, life has become pain for Christians and non-Christians alike. But what about the freedom promised in Christ? Could this become a reality in all of our lives? Would not this be the greatest testimony of Christâ€™s power on the earth? He could transform lives destroyed by the devilâ€™s work and fill us to overflowing with the glory of God. All this I had studied until my head was filled with the knowledge of God and the Scripture but to no avail. My heart was still tormented by my own inner distress. Finally, when I came to Him knowing that only He alone could make me whole, the work of transformation began. From the depths of my heart, I began to know the power of God. I believe that, no matter what has torn our hearts apart, there is healing in Christ; He is the answer to all of lifeâ€™s problems! When our hearts become filled with Him, His light shines, casting out our darkness. Where are you in your Christian life? Are there questions buried in the crevices of your heart that have gone unasked? Do you find yourself quietly grasping for LIFE in the pages of your Bible, longing for living faith? If this is true of your life, I wrote for youâ€”that you might know Him!
