Read an Excerpt

The Lord Will Provide

Now God was requiring Abraham to walk with Him by faith. On the way up the mountain to the place of sacrifice, Isaac asked his dad, "Where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" (v. 7). Can you imagine what Abraham might have felt at that moment, knowing that Isaac was the sacrifice?

"Abraham said, ‘My, son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering’" (v. 8). Abraham made an adjustment of his life and acted on his belief that God was his Provider. He obeyed God. When God saw Abraham’s faith and obedience, He stopped Abraham from sacrificing Isaac and provided a ram instead. Abraham named that place after the God he had just come to know by experience. He named the place "The-Lord-Will-Provide." In the Bible this is the first time we see the name "The-Lord-Will-Provide." Abraham came to an intimate knowledge of God that day through the experience of God as his Provider.

This is how we also come to know God. We come to know God as we experience Him. God reveals Himself to us through our experience of Him at work in our lives. We can know about God as a Provider as we read this story about Abraham. But we really come to know God as Provider when we experience Him providing something for our lives.

For twelve years I pastored Faith Baptist Church in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. When we started our first mission church, we called Jack Conner as our mission pastor. But we had no money for moving expenses and no money for a salary. Jack had three children in school, so we felt that we ought to pay him at least $850 a month. We began to pray that God would provide for his move and his needs.

I had never guided a church to do that before. We had now stepped out in faith, believing that God wanted him to pastor our mission in Prince Albert. Except for a few people in California, I didn’t know anybody who could help us financially. I began to ask myself, "How in the world will God make this provision?" Then it dawned on me that as long as God knew where I was, He could cause anybody in the world to know where I was. As long as He knew my need, He could place that need on the heart of anybody He chose.

Jack passed immigration and started his move of faith, convinced that God had called him. I then received a letter from First Baptist Church, Fayetteville, Arkansas. They said, "God has laid it on our heart to send one percent of our mission giving to Saskatchewan missions. We are sending a check to use however you choose." I did not know how in the world they got involved with us at that time, but a check came for eleven hundred dollars.

One day I received a phone call at home. The caller made a pledge that completed the $850 a month we needed to provide Jack’s salary for one year. Just as I got off the phone, Jack drove into our driveway.

I asked, "Jack, what did it cost to move you?"

He said, "Well, Henry, as best I can tell it cost me eleven hundred dollars."

We began that first step of faith by believing that the God who knows where we are is the God who can touch anybody, anywhere, and cause him or her to know where we are. We made the adjustments and were obedient. We believed that the God who called Jack also said, "I AM Provider." When we were obedient, God demonstrated Himself to be our Provider. That experience led us to a deeper love relationship with an all-sufficient God.

I am still reading Experiencing God. I am taking my time to read this book. It is so great and full of truth in knowing God personally and doing the Father's Will. If you are serious about having a relationship with the Father, having a better relationship with God, and being sure of His will,this is the book.

I am presently in the 5th week of the Experiencing God class. I cannot explain what a life changing experience I am having. I feel very strongly that every christian should take this class and experience God in such a way. Your life will never be the same! I had two dear friends tell me that it is life changing, and I just thought 'oh well', but, every day God reveals something new and wonderful to me. I am learning to listen and hear HIS voice.

I purchased this book last week and I have not been able to put it down. I have reread chapters to better comprehend the significance of the teaching here. This book has shown me so many errors of my ways and given me a sort of peace and tranquility, like never experienced before. This book, in my opinion, should be a required read for all Christians.

"Experiencing God" by Henry T. Blackaby and Claude V. King, is another in a series of Study Guides I have been thoroghly happy to have read. This guide takes the reader through a series of expectations that anyone who reads and studies the Bible through easy to understand stories and Scripture. This book allows the reader to first read the text, followed by going to their Bible and looking at the full Scripture being discussed. It also allows the reader to gain that fleeting knowledge and apply it to their everyday life. As this book begins, we are first introduced to the Chapter "Knowing God by Experience". One of my favorite quotes in this chapter is that of the Lord as Provider. "We can know about God as a Provider as we read the story of Abraham. But we really come to know God as Provider when we experience Him providing something for our lives." Just think, as we experience God, in the truest sense, we develop a closer relationship with God. He does provide. "Experiencing God" is yet another selection that should be part of the Christen Library. Thank you Blackaby and King for putting together this realistic and true information.

". . . we do not find God's will - it is revealed. God always takes the initiative."

I worked through the workbook years ago with friends from church. This book pretty much mirrors the workbook and presents it in a readable, book format. Content is pretty much the same. Having said that, this is an awesome book. Presenting ways in which we can know God's will and then how to go about doing God's will. This is one that any Christian should read and I for one was encouraged by it and am now "hearing" God speak to me each day in many ways. I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to experience God fully.
