Awe of God + Words With God
AWE OF GOD by John Bevere
The Astounding Way a Healthy Fear of God Transforms Your Life
Do you long for an intimate relationship with your Creator, but He seems elusive? Perhaps it is because something utterly essential is missing—holy fear. Don't let this frighten you. Fearing God is very different than being afraid of God. It's the key to everything.
The fear of the Lord is not a topic you'll hear much about these days. But if you want to build a faith that stands strong through troubled times, you cannot afford to ignore this book.
In The Awe of God, John Bevere invites you to take a fresh look at what it means to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. This healthy, holy, and largely forgotten virtue is the uncommon path to a more fulfilled and fruitful life. In this book you will see why godly fear is the foundation of:
Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge
Foresight, clarity, and divine direction
Maturity and conformity to the image of Jesus Christ
Building an eternal legacy
Confidence, fearlessness, and security
Freedom from the fear of man as all lesser fears are eclipsed
If you look at the men and women in Scripture, the ones who lived and finish well all have one thing in common: they are marked by holy fear.
The Awe of God was designed to be read slowly and intentionally. At the end of each of the 42 chapters are five tools to help you deepen your understanding and apply what the Spirit of God is teaching you. Experience the intimate relationship with God that you have always longed for by unlocking this countercultural message.
WORDS WITH GOD by Addison Bevere
For most of us, prayer is a struggle. Do our prayers even matter? What, if anything, happens when we pray? Are we having words with God or just words with ourselves?
We know we should pray. It would be good for us–help us be more grounded, more connected to God. But in our hurried lives, slowing down to pray can feel like a cosmic waste of time.
In this thoughtful book, bestselling author Addison Bevere takes you into and through the tension of prayer–the struggles, the doubts, the answers–to the place where God makes himself real to you. He tackles questions such as:
What do we do with unanswered prayers and how do we move through them?
Why does God invite us to ask through prayer if he is aware of every need?
How do we learn to hear the Voice of God?
Is there a right way to pray? If so, what is it?
Tired of boring, empty, transactional prayer? This is the book for you.
