Be Still and Listen to the Voice of God
Within the pages of this book, readers will gain spiritual insight into God’s plan for mankind and an opportunity to know Him, intimately. The author emphasizes the benefits of fellowship, not only with Christ, but also, with other believers.
She encourages everyone to work towards attaining a perfect union with God by setting quiet moments aside, to spend with Him and listen to His voice. She urges readers to be neither distracted nor discouraged on this earthly journey,but to remember that Jesus will meet each one wherever he is in life and take him, step by step,to that higher place which is preparing for His children.
The book is based on a religious and spiritual theme.
To experience an intimate relationship with God is to be in alliance with Him. When a person is in alliance with God, he walks in God's Holy Spirit, submitting wholly to His will.
ďAnd when all things shall be subdued to Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject to Him that put all things under Him that God may be all in all.Ē (I Cor.15:28).
When a person develops an intimate relationship with God, he gains spiritual insight into Godís Divine plan for mankind. It, also, affords him the opportunity to have direct communication with his Heavenly Father.
Because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for mankind, we may
approach the Holy of Holies, Godís throne of grace or inner sanctuary, with confidence, because we have become sons of God and co- inheritors of all things that are in Heaven. (Rev. 21:7)
God made the Holy of Holies available to the believer, by establishing it in the Secret Place within his soul.
Godís plan for mankind is both personal and moral. His personal plan is that man love Him above all things, has dominion over all the earth and prospers in all areas of life. ďBe fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and
over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.Ē (Gen.1:28)
God wants His children to trust Him for everything. He promised that He would provide all our needs.
The final part of Godís personal plan is that we spend eternity with Him
Godís moral plan is that man realizes His vision on earth, and be in complete obedience to His will. Like, with the children of Israel, anyone who disobeys God, He will punish. It is true that Jesus, having died for mankind, took the burden of sin upon himself, but if a person continues to
disobey Godís commandments, even after repenting and receiving God's forgiveness, he may still have to face the consequences of his actions. God also commands His children to care for
the needs of others; respect those in authority; pray for each other; be patient and compassionate,not judgmental. No one is without sin; therefore, do not condemn other sinners, or discuss them in derogatory terms, for this is gossip, a detestable sin before God. We are all God's children.
Remember, it is in one's weakness that Christ manifests His strength, for He came to comfort those broken in spirit. (II Cor.12:9).
Use caution in all areas of life. Avoid jumping into situations or making rash decisions without first asking for Divine guidance. Some things are not overtly wrong, but ask yourself what is the wise thing for me to do here.
Trust in God and be alert to His call because He speaks, constantly,to His children. In order to accomplish Godís plan on earth, effectively, one must read the Word of God and apply it, daily, to life, for the Word of God is the bread of life, which nourishes the
soul and fortifies the spirit.
Endeavor to become the embodiment of the living Word. By the Word, one gains wisdom,knowledge, and understanding of Godís Word. Wisdom, knows that Godís way is best;
knowledge, knows God; understanding, is one's ability to use His Word to glorify Him.
Accept trials, gladly, as this is Godís way of stripping one of the self-nature, so that he will not resist God's efforts to remold him into the perfect image, in which God first created him. Submit, entirely, to His will. Let God use you as He pleases. Keep the heart and mind open to the will of God, and strive to step out of the self-nature and into Christ, by immersing oneself, wholly, in the fullness of His love. Be humble, in everything. Praise, honor and glorify the Sovereign Lord and give Him thanks, always. Know that Godís Spirit lives within every believer. Therefore,
being spiritual beings, we should walk, always, in His Spirit.
