A good reminder

Henry Blackaby's Experiencing God:
God is always at work around you.
God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal through Jesus Christ.
Jesus invites you to become involved with Him in His work.
God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways.
Jesus' invitation for you to work with Him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.
You must make major adjustments in your life to join Jesus in what He is doing.
You come to know God by experience as you obey Jesus and He accomplishes His work through you.
(italics are my emphasis)

I've lead groups and individuals through this life changing study so many times. I'm so thankful for the faithfulness and obedience of Henry Blackaby to write Experiencing God. These 7 principles are so elementary, but so profound. GOOD STUFF!

Hey Tricia - My life was profoundly changed by working through this study too. I love your point that the "7 principles are so elementary but so profound." It is so good to take the time every now and again to stop and look back over your life and see the many different people God has used to grow you. The common thread I see is humility, love of God's Word and attitude of love.
