Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When He Speaks by Priscilla Shirer

Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for you?
Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times?

Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand. Become acquainted with the Voice that has spoken from a fire and a cloud; with visible signs and an invisible Spirit; through a burning bush and burning hearts. Hear from some of the most well-known Christians in history about how God speaks to them—and discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.

This is well written and has much encouraging and enlightening informatio especially for one who needs encouragement when going through a challenging season of life. The Scriptural references are appropriate and meaningful. The anecdotes help in providing real-world applications. This will be a permanent part of my library.

Plug into god by doing these simple easy chapters daily. spend 20-30 min per day and get god's clear guidance-you do this by prayer, studying certain bible verses, and being receptive to others and your circumstaNCES, GOD WILL BE CRYSTAL CLEAR.

This book is a must read!! Read it with my mentor from church and it is truly life changing. It makes you look at your daily life and how you can change it to rely more on God, not yourself. He hears everything you ask and pray for, you just have to wait and listen. Happy reading!!

by Andrea Renee Cox Wow. Can Priscilla Shirer deliver a powerful message or what? Loved this book, the message within it. Coincided perfectly with what I'm learning in life right now. One of those times I definitely feel God wanted me to read this book at precisely this time in my life. I highlighted things, underlined, made notes in the margins... and I'll be revisiting this book in times when I feel I cannot hear God's voice very clearly. Discerning the Voice of God is uplifting, encouraging, and a kick in the pants to sharpen those areas in life that trip you up. It's one of those books that you might as well buy two copies: one for yourself and one to give to a friend, because by the end of it, you're probably going to want to share this one -- just not your own copy, if you marked it up like I did! Happy reading!

God does speak!! Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God is Speaking by Priscilla Shirer is a fantastic book that shows ways that God does still speak to us today if we will only take time to listen. Ms Shirer does an absolutely amazing job in explaining how we can hear God through his word, how God may use others to confirm what He is trying to tell you. There are interesting chapter challenges at the end of each chapter for us to try that will bring us closer to God and recognizing when He is speaking to us. I personally remember a time when I thought a person was crazy that said that they had heard from God, but He does still speak to us His word his very much alive! I enjoyed this book from start to finish, as it confirmed for me what I was already experiencing. Can't wait to share this book with others who want to learn how to tell when God is speaking. One of my favorite quotes from the book is... "He speaks. God speaks. Your Lord and Savior speaks. To you. So wake up expecting. Arrive expecting. Come expecting. Live expecting. Never stop...Expecting." I received a free copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

Too often, Christians fret concerning whether they know the will of God. No trumpets blow. No burning bush stops them in their tracks. No angel knocks on the door with a letter from God. Priscilla Shirer, daughter of Dr. Tony Evans and a minister, tackles the problem of how we may recognize the voice of God with certainty. This version is the eleventh edition of this book (revised and expanded). The first chapter pace moves a little slowly, but it picks up as the reader goes to the later chapters. The author mentions her experiences to illustrate, though often in general language. She mentions “a new ministry” for example. I wanted to know what new ministry. Discerning the Voice of God would work well as a study guide for a group--probably its purpose. The reader will enjoy the book more by reading a chapter at a time which would fit well as a daily addition to devotions. Most Christians will find something new, and feel more secure in making decisions. I received this book from Moody Publisher. It is an honest review.

Priscilla Shirer develops an admirable rapport with the reader. She leaves out the cheesy "Oh girlfriend, let me tell you" jargon and just sticks with easy-going conversation. Shirer makes it seem as if you're sitting at the breakfast table with her, hot coffee mug in hand, casually chatting about your spiritual lives. She by no means comes across as the "almighty spiritual expert" which some Christian authors have the esteem to portray. Shirer is simply a woman who loves God. And given her personal experience with the Holy Spirit, combined with advice from the people in her life who provide Christian counsel, she felt others might gain from hearing what she's learned so far in her journey. Seeing as there is no exact science to exploring and connecting with the Holy Spirit in one's life, Shirer highlights the fact that every person's relationship with God is unique, as it should be. God has no favorites, no bad apples, just us, His children, who he yearns to have a relationship with. I'm in a bible study group with 3 other women, all of us ranging in age from 30 to 37, and we have each enjoyed reading and benefited from this book. I highly recommend this thought-provoking, yet easy read!
