Overview Challenges conceptions that liken God to a vengeful taskmaster to inspire readers on how to trust God with every aspect of life, in a guide that explains how to experience love, healing, and peace through faith. Original.
Publishers Description Many people have an incorrect concept of God as an angry taskmaster, which hinders them from coming to Him and receiving what Jesus died to purchase for them. Because God is actually full of love, He offers each person salvation, healing, deliverance, peace, and every other good thing listed in His Word. In BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE, Gloria Copeland shows readers how to embrace God's goodness and learn to trust Him with every area of their lives. She confirms, "Only by placing our lives in His hands can we open the way for Him to save us, and bless us, and work through us," generating lives of faith, hope, and confidence.
Community Description Synopsis:
Readers will learn to understand and experience the extraordinary goodness of God!
Gloria Copeland believes that far too many people---even Christian believers---are living with far too little of God's provision for them. Why? For the simple reason that they've never discovered the true nature of God.
By tracing God's goodness throughout the entire Bible, she demonstrates to readers that because of God's great love for them, they can receive salvation and so much more---healing, deliverance, peace, blessings, and every other good thing God has promised in His Word.
Copeland goes on to show the keys to receiving these blessings, beginning with the first step of discovering and embracing God's true nature of goodness and kindness toward His children---not the all-too-pervasive image of an angry and condemning God.
This will be one of the most important books of the year to help Christian's grow spiritually and experience God's absolute best for them.

All that is good Aug 26, 2005
When things seem down and out and you don't know where to turn, pick up a copy of BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE by Gloria Copeland. This book will be your inspirational cheerleader to remind you of God's awesome goodness. From Genesis to Revelation, this book is chock full of reminders relating to God's wonderfulness. The first step in recognizing God's potential is accepting Him as your personal Lord and Savior. By understanding the truth of the words in the Bible and believing in the goodness of God is the foundation of our faith, Mrs. Copeland states, "He will restore wholeness in your life, spirit, soul and body." She cites Psalm 84 which tells us that "No good thing will be withheld from those who walk uprightly."
The book is laced with metaphorical encouragement that just prompts the reader to be enlightened and renewed. One passage that stuck with me was "Feed your heart with the goodness of God." Here, Ms. Copeland is urging readers to not only trust God for eternal salvation but challenges us to see the daily goodness of God in the land of the living. He is a redeemer, a conqueror, and all in all, He is love! BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE reminds us that God will fulfill our desires, and by having faith, God will bless us and provide deliverance just like he did for Israel.
This book is filled with positivity and has an upbeat vibe that is undeniable! If during your Christian walk, you're looking for some solid reinforcement and reassuring direction, look no further. BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE is written in a flowing manner that is easy to understand yet filled with wonderful insight.

God Is Good Jun 9, 2005
Many churches focus on how to be saved, but teach little about prosperity, healing, living a victorious Christian life, and how to live joyfully. Many people base their ideas about their heavenly Father by their earthly father which provides only a distorted view of God. If their earthly father was harsh, they see Jesus as unloving and unforgiving. If their earthly father was kind and gentle, they see Jesus like their earthly father kind, but full of mistakes. Jesus is like neither of these. Gloria Copeland takes us through the Bible quoting many verses simply, so a child can easily understand who we are in Christ and who Jesus really is and what he stands for. I encourage everyone to read this book. It contains the truth about God's love and the good things he wants to give all of us if we will just receive them As a certified Biblical Counselor, I am using this book with the Bible to help others see who Jesus really is.
God IS a Good God Nov 28, 2004
"I have not said...Seek me in vain. I the Lord speak the truth; I declare what is right." Isaiah 45:10
All of the Goodness of God described in the Holy Scriptures of the Bible is for You and me today. Healing, freedom, protection, and prospertiy is for you. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Gloria Copeland gently leads her readers from the very basic truth that understanding God's Goodness is the foundation of our faith. As you progress through each chapter Gloria takes the reader through the scriptures where the goodness of God is declared.
It is hard not to get excited when you discover that God has blessings stored up for you, that God has a good place and a good plan for your life. And, it is not too late to get started.
As I read through Gloria's book, I kept asking myself, how do I experience ALL of God's goodness? I was not disappointed to find there is a chapter called "The Key to Heaven's Storehouse."
My friend, God is looking for a "Receiver."
"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him." 2 Chronicles 16:9
Don't let the word "perfect" throw you off the track. The word that is translated "perfect" in this passage actually means "devoted, faithful, dedicated, loyal and consecrated."
Baby steps. Begin with receiving the gift of salvation. As you learn to trust his goodness, the more he will show his goodness and strength on your behalf.
Get the full picture. Read this book. Let Gloria Copeland minister to you as she leads you through scripture and be challenged to receive the Goodness of God in Your life.
