The Grand Scheme: Understanding God’s Plan for Your Life is a cheerful and enthusiastic Christian non-fiction book. Author Tega Folivi sets out a simple list of ways to identify how God is working in your life, and urges people to embrace a confident, powerful connection with God by looking beyond confusing situations towards His ultimate plan. The book has 10 chapters that outline God’s characteristics as a master guide for people’s lives and each chapter gives strategies for channeling this divine plan into their daily practice. There is also a short set of prophetic affirmations for the reader to use at the end.
This book is a ray of sunshine! The Grand Scheme: Understanding God’s Plan for Your Life delivers plain-speak about getting in touch with God—how, why, and what to expect—and is very clear about the humility and clear communication practices that are necessary. Tega Folivi upholds God’s work in her own life and encourages others to believe in His purpose for them as well. Her absolute commitment propels the book forward in a very strong way. God’s presence in her and of the type of person she defines as a “God-lover” is described beautifully. One highlight for me also was the variety of Scriptures quoted from many different translations and I liked how sensible a lot of the topics were—a loving spirit towards others, real immersion in God’s Word, and acceptance that tough or surprising situations might actually be His design. I highly recommend some of the common sense the author puts forward.
