What is God like? Can I trust Him? Does He know me and can He help me tackle the challenges I face?
There is a good chance you do not know God the way He desires and certainly not the way He knows you. Most people know a little something about Him, but their knowledge of who He is and how He works stops just past the point of an initial introduction.
Why is it so important to know the One who knows all about you? The answer is simple: when you come to a point where you understand His ways, your life takes on new meaning. You stop looking at old problems and feeling defeat, fear, and anxiety. Suddenly, you realize that the Person who gave you life and breath is also the One who has set an amazing course for your life to follow.
In Step with God offers steps that lead not only to a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ but also provides the insight you need to live each day. In a simple, clear way Dr. Charles Stanley, one of Americas most loved and trusted pastors, encourages and challenges you to approach life and its decisionsboth big and smallby first knowing and considering Gods character. Inside you will learn how to
âªgain greater intimacy with God
âªunderstand how He uses trials to build you up
âªlearn the signs of Gods goodness in day-to-day life
âªcling more firmly to His love and forgiveness
âªdiscover Gods relentless commitment to your well being.
The nearer I draw to the Lord, writes Dr. Stanley, the more I will know about HimHis love for me and His good plans and desires for my life. Plus, the more intimate I become with God, the better I understand His ways, and this understanding leads to a deeper longing to know God better. I learn how to discern His will not only for my life but also for the situations I encounter.
Stanley is a bestselling author and popular speaker, but discerning readers will find nothing new in his latest effort. As pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta and head of In Touch Ministries, Stanley takes the pulse of Christian readers, asking "Would you like to know God and also know that you are walking in step with His will and plan for your life?" He says most likely the answer is yes, although many may not know how. The former president of the Southern Baptist Convention provides some obvious answers, such as "discovering God's ways . . . is a doorway to knowing His will and plan;" "there should be a warmth burning inside us that reminds us of His intimate care;" and "He is moved to action when He sees our faith in Him growing." Stanley uses ready biblical examples, including Moses, Joshua, Noah and Abraham, and the book falls short of anything strikingly fresh. Yet Christiansnew and lifetimewill find a useful, easy-to-read guide to the basics of understanding God's ways and plans. (Sept. 30 ) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
