God is speaking. Can you hear Him?

God's voiceGod doesn’t always speak the way we would like.  Do you imagine if you could hear God speak audibly you would get all of your questions answered?  God speaks to us in many different ways.  Through the Scriptures. Through our circumstances.  Through other people.  And many more.  He doesn’t speak the same way to everyone.  He knows just how to speak so we will hear Him, that is, if we are listening and paying attention.

Leighann McCoy knows about struggle.  She knows it can be difficult to hear God when struggles are drowning out His voice.  But she also knows that God loves you and speaks to you where you are.  In “A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice,” she uses examples of biblical men and women with a unique perspective.  I enjoyed reading her quips and thoughts about how God spoke to Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Hezekiah.  Each chapter ends with a treasure chest containing personal reflections and discussion questions that will help you hear what God is saying to you.

I particularly liked McCoy’s re-telling of Jacob wrestling with God.  She invites us to wrestle with God for the answers we need in our life.  We may not always receive what we want, but we will always get what we need.

If you want to know how to hear and respond to  God’s voice, what to do when God’s promises don’t line up with your reality and how God uses your struggles to reveal more of His power and love, then McCoy’s book will provide the answers you seek.

“A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice” is a great book for group discussion or personal use.
