How to Hear from God: Learn to Know His Voice and Make Right Decisions

In the hustle and bustle of today’s busy world, sometimes it’s hard enough to hear yourself think, much less take a minute to stop and listen for the voice of God.

In How to Hear from God, Joyce Meyer shows readers that God reaches out to people every day, seeking a partnership with them to offer guidance and love. She reveals the ways in which God delivers His word and the benefits of asking God for the sensitivity to hear His voice. Joyce asks the question, “Are you listening?” and shares how to do just that.

It’s Not About Me: Rescue From the Life We Thought Would Make Us Happy

There really is more to this life than you’ve been told.

We’ve been demanding our way since day one …

“I want a spouse that makes me happy and coworkers that always ask my opinion.”

“I want weather that suits me and traffic that helps me and government that serves me.”

Self-promotion. Self-preservation. Self-centeredness …

“It’s all about me.”

They all told us it was, didn’t they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy …

Let Max Lucado show you how to make the shift of a lifetime. How to bump your life off self-center. How to be changed and experience the meaning-charged life you were meant to have. Your discovery starts here.

Facing Your Giants: The God Who Made a Miracle Out of David Stands Ready to Make One Out of You

You know your Goliath. You recognize his walk, the thunder of his voice.

He taunts you with bills you can’t pay, people you can’t please, habits you can’t break, failures you can’t forget, and a future you can’t face. But just like David, you can face your giant, even if you aren’t the strongest, the smartest, the best equipped, of the holiest.

David. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. His life has little to offer the unstained, straight-A saint. He fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the sound of Goliath, David gives this reminder:

Focus on giants — you stumble; focus on God — your giants tumble.

If you’re ready to face your giants, let his story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.
