About The Book
Hearing God’s still small voice is paramount in every Christian’s life. When God speaks, confusion fades, lies are exposed, and you encounter an unconditional love you have never known before. This is why deciphering HIS voice amidst all the noise and lies is vital in understanding and believing who God says we are in Christ.
It Really is a Relationship, Not Religion
So, because God lives in us, we can experience full communion with him moment by moment through the Holy Spirit and be empowered to live out the Word of God. In each moment of our life, we have a choice about what we choose to THINK ABOUT. Turning our thoughts and affections toward Jesus connects us to Him in communion. The Lord notices every time you think about Him or think toward Him. Hebrews 4:12-13 says the thoughts and intents of our heart are discerned by God and his Word. Being conscious of where our thoughts are going takes practice.
In the classic book, 3 Practicing His Presence, Brother Lawrence describes how we can learn to have a conversational relationship with God right in the midst of our daily lives. The book is a collection of notes, letters, and interviews given by Lawrence, taken from his fifty-one years of practicing full communion with his heavenly Father. The following is an excerpt from Practicing His Presence.
An excerpt from Part One
Let me put it to you this way: before we can love, we must know. We must know someone before we can love him. How shall we keep our “first love” for the Lord? By constantly knowing him better! Then how shall we know the Lord? We must often turn to him, think of him, behold him. Then our hearts will be found with our treasure.

"Many Christians want to know God’s will for their lives, to hear God’s voice and obey his will. Yet the busyness of our lives and a culture of constant distraction make it hard--almost impossible--to listen in obedience to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I am grateful, then, that Ashley Edwards has given us this clear, accessible guide to hearing God’s voice. It teaches us about the identity of our heavenly Father, our identity as his beloved children, and practices we can engage in to hear his will for our lives. It also includes ninety days of devotionals meant to open our hearts to the leadings of the Holy Spirit. Highly recommended!"
