REVIEW: Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God by Mark Batterson
This is an excellent new book from one of my favorite authors, Mark Batterson. And as with all of my Batterson books, this one ended up with countless underlines, stars, and notes throughout!
This book is about knowing God still speaks today, and with all that is going on in the world today, many of us need that comfort. We just have to make sure we are aware, attentive, and listening for His voice. Because God can show up and speak to us anywhere, anytime, anyhow.
Batterson lays out what he believes to be the seven love languages of how God speaks, including through: signs, Scripture, open doors, dreams and visions, people, and pain. God’s voice is not subject to the inverse-square law or any other law of nature for that matter. He is supernatural, and He can speak any way He pleases.
Not only is it important to be aware and attentive in listening for God’s voice, we also have to trust in His timing. Batterson urges readers to hold out for God’s perfect timing –not our timing—and allow God to give us the best He has for us. God wants us to hear what He’s saying, and to hear His heart. He loves us and wants to tell us He loves us.
So, if you feel you are having trouble hearing from God, or want to know more about the way in which God speaks to us, pick up this book. Read it, and listen for God.
