One of my favorite Christian inspirational authors is Max Lucado. I really enjoy reading his point of view and inspiration of God’s WORD through his books. A few weeks ago, I was given an opportunity to read and review his newest book, When God Whispers Your Name: Discovering the path to hope in knowing that God Cares for You.
I am pleased to report that this book does not disappoint. Lucado writes as if he is speaking directly to
me you. He does not write above your head nor does he fill the book with a bunch of theoretical Biblical information.
This book simply shares many different stories from the Bible with a twist from our every day life. Most are about people who are lost or weary or discouraged – just like you may be.
Each chapter describes a story or life circumstance and how God is in control. Max Lucado uses the stories to speak God into each situation.
This book is a gentle reminder to slow down to life, and to really listen. Listen carefully because God is whispering your name.
Are you looking to hear God’s whisper in your life? Perhaps this new year 2012 is your year to slow down, live in the moment, and spend more time in God’s WORD.
Do you find it hard to believe that the One who made everything keeps your name on His heart and on His lips? Did you realize that your name is written on the hand of God (Is. 49:16)? Perhaps you’ve never seen your name honored. And you can’t remember when you heard it spoken with kindness. In this book, Lucado offers the inspiration to believe that God has already bought the ticket-with your name on it.
