Do you think that we should have a relationship with God where we communicate with him?  I do, and this book shows how to do just that.

Samuel Williamson shares how to recognize God’s voice, properly meditate, hear God in our ordinary day to day life, and more.

About the Author-

Samuel C. Williamson currently lives with his wife in Michigan.  He is the founding director of Beliefs of the Heart.

My thoughts-

When I saw the cover of this book I was confused.  I didn’t think it had much to do with hearing God, and I didn’t really want to read the book.  I’m glad I did though, because Williamson thoroughly explained how to hear God in everything.

I liked how he took the time and effort to add his life stories and to keep it very biblically based.  He always stressed that the reader should follow the what the Bible says.  He also made it clear what Christian meditation should and should not be.  We are to meditate on the Word and fill ourselves, not to empty.

The two appendices were informative, because they discussed different beliefs that people have today and how we should approach them when our beliefs are different than others.  I thought it was interesting that he included Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young.  I had heard that some people question her focus, but while Williamson appreciates what she has done, he tells us we need to remember that we need to make sure that we are listening the right way.

I think this is an excellent resource to read and pass on to others.  Enjoy reading it.
