Live Before You Die is written to encourage readers to follow and pursue God’s vision and will for their life. Daniel Kolenda stated that God created every single person as a one of a kind masterpiece and he has a dream for you to complete that only you can do. He pointed out that in Psalms 139:13 that God knitted each one of us in our mother’s womb and we’re are all unique. Daniel Kolenda revealed that God’s will for us won’t go against His written word. A gigantic problem some of struggle with is we are constantly fighting against what God wants us to do for His kingdom. Obeying God is the best solution to achieving what He has in mind for us. God gives each person special gifts and talents to accomplish His will for their life. It’s also important to remember that we don’t need to judge others who have different gifts from ours.
The next section of the book contains, “Five Secrets to Discovering God’s Will”. The first imperative one is seeking and doing what the Kingdom needs you to do for God’s glory. Daniel Kolenda described the meaning behind Matthew 6:33. This verse means if you are doing what God has instructed you to do for His kingdom he will add these things to you. If you seek His kingdom first he will lead you to the job you’re supposed to have, the person you’re meant to marry, guide you where to live, and the right college to attend. Living in God’s will is the easiest way to finding your purpose and meaning in life.
The next part of the book is entitled, “Five Enemies of God’s Will for Your Life”. One of the five enemies is avoiding making excuses that prevent us from doing what God has called you to do. Daniel Kolenda shared that some people like to wait on God and they’re times to do that. But sometimes He’s waiting on us to take action. Another excuse many people are using is that they don’t have enough money to follow God’s will for their life right now. People are often in favor of using that excuse I’m not talented enough, I don’t have any experience, I didn’t go to college, and I’m not as smart as other people. But all these excuses are only holding us back from God’s will for our lives.
One of my favorite quotes was, “Begin to move in the direction God is leading. Even God can’t steer a parked car! Get moving for God, and you will find that He will begin to guide your steps and direct your path.” (Page 140-150).
I would recommend this delightful book on seeking and pursuing God’s will for your life to anyone is unsure what they are truly living for. The book will provide readers with a sensing that God has a calling for them to complete for each person he has created. No person was a mistake everyone has talents and gifts that God wants to use for His kingdom purposes. He has an everlasting love for each one of us and He only wants the best for us. This book has gigantic potential to guide readers into finding God’s will and it will also warn readers into not buying into the excuses. The tips presented in this book are life changing. The book contained tons of scriptures to mediate on in each chapter on how Biblical characters found their true calling. The book also contained QR codes that link to videos to dig deeper that can be scanned with your smartphone.
