Experiencing God

I recently reread the classic book Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby about how to live a life of adventure with God by knowing and doing His will. I was first introduced to book in the early 1990’s, but the truths are timeless and it was a fresh remember to me of God’s invitation to join Him where he is already at work. Here are some of the stand out quotes from the book to peak your interest in reading it as well as to remind you of how God works:

• If you want to know God’s will, you must respond to His invitation to love Him wholeheartedly.
• “What is God’s will for my life?” is not the best question to ask. I think the right question is simply, “What is God’s will?”
• What God initiates, He completes.
• God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways.
• The Holy Spirit reveals truth. Truth is not just some concept to be studied. Truth is a person.
• When God speaks to a person, revealing His plans and purpose, it will always cause a crisis of belief. What you believe about God will determine what you do and how you live.
• The kinds of assignments that God gives in the Bible are always God sized.
• The world comes to know God when they see God’s nature expressed through His activity.
• No one can sum up all God is able to accomplish through one solitary life, wholly yielded, adjusted and obedient to Him!

If you haven’t read this classic, I strongly encourage it.
