How do I know if God is speaking to me? What do Christians mean when they talk about visions and pictures from God? Is prophecy is my spiritual gift? What should we expect when listening to God?
The God of the Bible is a God who speaks, who spoke the world itself into being; his Word is powerful and it will accomplish what he sends it to do. Our God promises to speak to us, to be found by us when we seek him with all our heart. He promises that the old will dream dreams and the young will see visions.
But how? What is ‘God’s voice’ actually like? Can we really hope to ‘hear’ him today?
Yes, we can, argues Bill Cahusac, pastor of Emmaus Road church in Guildford, and not only in church. Whether that is a supermarket queue, a football match or out walking on the Downs, the God of the Bible loves to communicate with us.
This beautiful book explores, in the simplest and most practical of ways, some of the important and difficult questions surrounding prophecy and interpretation. Vulnerable, funny, and relatable, Bill takes us on a journey of his experience, recounting stories and examples which have taught him how to recognize God’s word. Hearing that gentle whisper, he says, comes from spending time with God in his word and in worship.
What people are saying
“Bill Cahusac is a trusted prophetic voice for good reason! He’s mature in love, character and spirit. In this marvelous book he weaves practical advice for learning to hear God’s voice, with profound stories of how the Lord of All still encounters His sons and daughters today. He offers us some very beautiful foundation stones that are invaluable for those starting out in the prophetic. I would highly recommend this book!”Christine Westhoffhttps://linktr.ee/CraigandChris
“Bill’s exceptional prophetic gift, drawn up from the deep and secret places of his relationship with Jesus... has often brought God’s word powerfully to me personally, to our church family, and to the wider 24-7 movement. ... As you read this book you’re going to be amazed by the stories he recounts, but there is also much that he hasn’t shared, simply I suspect out of humility.”Pete GriegFounder of the 24-7 Prayer movement
“I am convinced God needs to keep reminding us just how fundamental hearing his voice is to our deepening love relationship with him, as well as serving him in the world he so dearly loves and into which we are sent. Bill shares great principles and key practices that everyone can learn from. He tells many wonderful stories with humour and humility. This is a book that tackles a familiar subject with fresh eyes and fresh insights.”Dr Nic HardingFounding Pastor of Frontline Church Liverpool, Director of Kairos Connexion & Together for the Harvest
