Alive at 5: Victory In Retrospect
Alive at 5: Victory in Retrospect, The Complete Volume, which was originally split into two volumes in 2004, is an eclectic compilation of Old & New Testament daily devotional entries covering an entire year that highlight many facets of God’s grace. Within its pages, one may find entries varying in length, focused on the great news of Jesus Christ. By design, whether in the Old or New Testaments, the topics should only lead to one place–Jesus Christ.
“I have been immeasurably blessed from reading Alive at 5. The fresh insights to the Bible that the messages reveal have made it almost impossible to read only one commentary at any sitting. I also find myself reading from Scripture many of the passages referenced in the book, thereby amplifying the author’s messages even more. I truly wish everyone could get their hands on these books. Lives would be changed as mine has.” – Keith Bramble “
L. David Harris convincingly paints a glorious picture of God’s grace towards every one of us in these daily readings. Each entry is descriptively reverent, worshiping the Spirit with such eloquence that relates with a personal and profound intensity.” –The New York Christian Times
“A wonderful and brilliantly written exploration of God’s Scriptures. This author moved beyond the pages and into the hearts of the disciples to understand the only One who never sinned. The words in these books come to life as the author exposes the impetus for Christ’s walk to Calvary.” –Michell Baker
You too can be blessed by God while prayerfully enjoying this volume. Taking steps toward Christ is truly rewarding.

Acts 4:13 shows us how to be bold. Let us learn a lesson from Jesus and His early followers. If we do not seek the lost, who will?
Why did Jesus say ‘Go tell that fox’ to King Herod? Even as Herod tried to put out Jesus’ life, He shows us that he has everything under control. If we trust the Lord as did Jesus, our eternal lives are secure in Him.
Keep a prayer on your lips all day every day, and remember that Jesus’ apparent slumber is a call to persistent prayer and meditation. He always answers right on time.
Have you ever been so overwhelmed by the works of Satan that you could hardly take it anymore? Have you been tempted to think that the Lord has allowed the enemy to triumph over you? Does the burden of Satan’s constant attacks make you feel like giving up? Learn a lesson from the seldom-read prophet, Habakkuk.
In the practical things of life, we can begin to put God first by jumpstarting our day with Him. Through worship, prayer, and Bible study we can bring what really matters into focus.
There are those today, who have the same elitist view of their own religious group, as did God’s ancient people. What does God have to say about this?
The Bible is clear that Jesus is the preeminent and most important One. Will you allow Him to be the priority of your life?
When we encounter situations where others are not quite as mindful as they need to be, we must not lose control, but realize that our real enemy is the devil and not the person or persons involved.
