"God spoke to me." "The Spirit spoke to my heart." "God revealed the idea to me." Being close to God means communicating with him—telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear? The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this updated and expanded edition of Willard's beloved book, originally published as In Search of Guidance, you'll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom. Including new material from Dallas Willard's teaching at the Renovaré Institute and reformatted to be even easier to read, this classic continues to endure as one of today's best resources for learning to listen closely to God.

Author: Shawn Bolz
Translating God serves as an inspirational guide book that puts God’s great love back into prophetic ministry as a primary goal full of real life stories that articulate the culture of love behind God's heart for the prophetic. So much of the prophetic ministry is esoteric and a free for all in which people throw down the God card on anything they "feel," but this book brings balance without taking away the desire to see the powerful nature of God displayed. On top of that, it's biblically based and is supported by scripture throughout each story, driving home the book's message of activating the ability to hear God's voice for each reader. Through a thought-provoking prophetic ministry philosophy and Shawn's glorious successes and very real failures, you will be inspired and equipped to: • learn how to hear God for yourself and others, • grow through simple focused steps, • take great risks, • stay accountable, • love people well, • grow in intimacy with the Lord. As an internationally known prophetic voice who has ministered to thousands—from political leaders to those on the streets—Shawn shares everything he has learned about the prophetic in a way that is totally unique and refreshing. Shawn aims for the higher goal of loving people relationally, not just pursuing the gift or information, and he activates you to do the same. Start to reshape the world around you with God’s love today.

Shows readers how they can experience a fuller, more meaningful prayer life by learning how to listen to God.
Elijah heard a still small voice that changed the direction of his life... Or did he? What if I could show you a deeper experience? What if I told you that it was not the still small voice that changed Elijah's life but that it was what the Bible refers to as "a voice." It was that voice that allowed him to come through one of the darkest hours in his life. In fact he goes from uncertainty to certainty... and it started with hearing clearly what God was saying. That is what this book is about. It is about going from hearing a barely discernable voice to hearing a clear voice. It is about going from "I think God is saying..." to "I know God is saying...." So join me in recounting the events of 1 Kings 19 as we uncover what really happened on that day. Once you know what really happened and what is really available to you, you will find a renewed sense of faith, an insatiable new inspiration, and a new path to a deeper relationship with God. This book is not just a recount of this incredible story, but it is also a revelation of what causes us to vacillate in our hearing experience. You will come away from this book knowing how to hear God clearly and what it means when you don't.
