When a father loves his children, he speaks words of affirmation and love to them. When a husband and wife love one another, they make sure to communicate with one another honestly and frequently. If God loves human beings as his children and treasures his relationship with them as a spouse would, would he not also speak to them frequently, with both love and honesty? In Hearing God, author Ben Dixon explores what it means to hear God speak to you personally, both through his written word, the Bible, and inwardly, through the voice of his Holy Spirit. From the riches of his personal experience and from the stories of others, Ben explores why God speaks to us, how to clearly hear God when he does speak, and what to do once you have heard him speak to you. This book will challenge you to build your relationship with God, to expect to hear him speak you personally, and to believe what he says and apply it to your life in real ways that will bring personal transformation.
