In the hustle and bustle of today's busy world, sometimes it's hard enough to hear yourself think, much less take a minute to stop and listen for the voice of God. But learning to recognize God's voice and the many ways in which He speaks is vital for following His plan. This devotional; drawing from How to Hear From God, Knowing God Intimately, and The Power Of Simple Prayer shows the reader through a daily reminder, how God speaks through their own thoughts and feelings, their dreams, and the words of other people. Joyce Meyer reveals the ways in which God delivers His word and the benefits of asking God for the sensitivity to hear His voice. Joyce asks the question, "Are you listening?" and shares how to do just that...on a daily basis.

This is a great book to start each day, delivering a piece of God into your life every morning. At least that's when I would read.
I start my day reading the devotional, and then my bible. It always lifts me up to talk with God each morning. The devotional helps to put things into perspective, like knowing when to turn the other cheek, or when to step in and take over, or when to just be alone and let God lead the way.
Look, I'm not a person to go to church every week, or preach gospel every time I see someone, but I do indeed have a mass amount of faith in God, and prayer. I have been through a lot in my life, that lead me to my bible, but all the while helping me everyday to live the life I long for.
This devotional book is fantastic! It gives you a snippet of faith each day. Joyce has a way of making you really sit and think, when you read a page from the devotional.
I highly recommend any devotional, to get yourself into a practice of faith. Especially if you are shied from churches, though I think someone like Joyce Meyer is a great person to help get you started.
