Hearing From God Each Morning

Author: Joyce Meyer
Publisher: Hatchette Book Group
January 2010
ISBN: 978-0-446-55785-6
Genre: Inspirational/devotional

HEARING FROM GOD EACH MORNING is a collection of 365 daily devotionals. Short, and easy to read, each devotional is designed to help us obtain a more intimate relationship with God. Ms. Meyers also hopes to help us cultivate qualities and behaviors that will help us to recognize God’s voice.

Compiled from teachings from How to Hear From God, Knowing God Intimately, and The Power of Simple Prayer, HEARING FROM GOD EACH MORNING will help you to listen to the one most important voice of all—the voice of God.

The collection includes meditations that will inspire and help you to:

>Make time for God
>Discern His responses to prayer
>Sustain relationships with others while developing your intimacy with God.

I enjoy getting a new devotional in the mail and trying them out, either in my private devotions or in our family devotions. This book we tried out as a family. Each devotional starts with a verse, then it goes into a very brief (often less than one page) devotional, usually only about two or three paragraphs. And it ends with an application entitled God’s words for you today.

I would have liked to have a ribbon bookmark included in the book to keep my place, but each devotional is also marked with the date, so as long as you know what date it is, you can find it easily. HEARING FROM GOD EACH MORNING is an attractively done hard-cover book which will look good on your bedside table, or beside your easy chair. This book is a great devotional to start your day with. $15.99. 365 pages.
