Sbrocca’s book on “entering your personal promised land” is filled to the brim, dare I say overflowing, with practical systems for aligning yourself with what God is doing in your life.
The miracle part of this book review starts all the way back in February 2013. I signed up for the “Heaven in Business” conference hosted by Bethel. The plan was to listen to the speakers and begin praying for Heaven in Business including the work I was doing for an English school at the time as well as my primary ministry/business focus: The Aroma.
Rick Sbrocca’s session detailed one part of the book and gave away free copies. So I chased down the organizer of the event via email and found out they were actually willing to ship it to me.
Wait four months. Nothing.
I reopened my conversation with them and a second copy of the book was sent my way (both copies were sent for free). I received the book and in it was a handwritten letter from Rick himself with a prayer just for me. I’m not sure if he does this for everyone, but it sure made me special. A highly successful businessman (his current firm went from $4,000,000US to $16,000,000US within a couple of years, I believe) taking the time and energy to connect with me personally was touching. Not to mention the $18 shipping charge they paid out of pocket as well.
All that to say, there was something genuine about this book from the beginning. Now, when I say it’s full of systems, I have to admit that I’ve not done all of them yet. I feel working through the book more slowly is better than trying to rush through it all so that I could say I finished reading it. I’ve not read the whole thing yet, but I wanted to encourage you to try to get ahold of a copy yourself.
Sbrocca is a powerful storyteller and begins with a chapter that carves out a story of a prodigal.
He moves on to outline the following:
- The 7 R’s of Rest
- The 7 F’s of Freedom
- The 7 V’s of Victory
- The 7 C’s of Champion
Each of these systems, if on their own, would be enough to keep me metricising my life for months to come. Needless to say, I’ll be in this book for a while. Each section has lots of anecdotal help along with room for personal reflection and even space to write out thoughts. It’s really more of a workbook.
So far, my favorite piece to work through was an acronym he created called “PAUSE.” He uses this to maintain a close watch on his inner life so as to maintain perpetual connection to the lifesource, his relationship with Father God. The idea is to be measuring and to continually be aware of what’s happening.
我覺得這本書最奇妙的事要從2013年2月講起，那時我參加了一個由貝索舉辦的 “天國的事業”講座，那時打算聽聽他會講什麼和為我的 “天國的事業”禱告，我那時除了在學校教英文還有我主要的傳道重心/事業:馨香堂
