Follow the Cloud by John Stickl is such an intriguing book on how to hear God’s voice.
This is a wonderful book for readers who desire to better understand the importance of hearing God’s voice.
It is important for readers to know that this is not the traditional book on hearing God’s voice. The purpose of this book is not to share different methods for being quiet and positioning ourselves to better hear God’s voice. The heart of this book’s message is to help readers grasp why hearing God’s voice is something to be desired by believers in Jesus Christ.
This book emphasizes the importance of resting in God’s presence, following His lead and instruction and being wiling to take the next step that He gives us. In order for us to do that, we must fully place our trust in God. One of many things that I enjoyed about this book is that it doesn’t place the focus of taking the next step solely on our action. Yes, it’s important for us to take action (the next step), but we should not rely on ourselves. Instead, we must place our trust in God and only then take the next step.
I found this book to be a very easy and enjoyable read. It has a really good flow and I was very pleased with the balance between sharing principles and personal experiences. There are also thought-provoking reflective questions that readers can ask themselves and answer at the end of each chapter. These are very helpful in ensuring that the concepts and principles shared within the chapter are understood before moving on.
Pioneers (Chapter 11) is hands down the best chapter in this book to me. I was already enjoying the book, but when I reached this chapter my level of enjoyment greatly increased. There are so many valuable principles shared regarding the pursuit of God’s will and purpose for our lives within the chapter. I never want to forget any of the principles that are shared. If readers do nothing else, they owe it to themselves to read that chapter and apply the principles shared within it.
If you have a sincere desire to follow God’s lead, get in tune with His voice, trust Him fully and take action on what He reveals to you, this book will be a valuable resource along your journey. This is definitely a must read for those who are ready to hear God’s voice and take the next step that He has for their lives!
