God speaks to us in a language we understand.
He actually doesn’t have to couch his communication with you at church, in prayer or out of the pastor’s mouth. He comes looking for you and will find you in movies, music, billboards and your next door neighbor.
For me, he often uses books.
I’ve just loaded up my book hopper with several and I’m experiencing deer-in-the-headlight syndrome; I don’t know where to start. Some are quite unexpected by authors I’ve never even heard of. Visions Beyond the Veil by H.A. Baker and Praying Through the Bible: The Pathway to Spirituality by Wesley and Stacey Campbell are two of them. Waking the Dead by John Eldredge and John Maxwell’s Developing the Leaders Around You are two by more well-known folks. I’ve been gifted a whole boat load of Portuguese works by Alcione Emerich and Marcos de Souza Borges, better know as “Coty,” that are calling out to me rather loudly.
I’ve even got the new releases by Bonnie and Mahesh Chavda Make Room for Your Miracle, Bill Johnson Release the Power of Jesus and Derek Prince Bought with Blood (though technically it isn’t a “new” release since he’s been dead for six years).
I was even given a copy of Ruth Ward Heflin’s Glory.
Ok, God. I’m listening…
