6 thoughts on “Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (Workbook)”

  1. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to draw closer to God. If you actually DO the work as instructed and not just read the book, your relationship with God will be forever transformed. You cannot possibly walk away from doing the steps in this workbook and have the same relationship with our LORD as you began.
    It really gets to the heart of the relationship that we are to have with GOD. If you really have a heart for God and seek after him, this book will bless you over and over again. By using examples from the Bible the authors show us how God wants to have a close personal relationship with ALL of his children. We see how God works with HIS children from the Old and the New Testament. God does not change, and this book shows that to us again and again. This book has changed my life and improved my marriage.
    From a practical standpoint doing the “work” in this workbook is a challenge (as is our Christian walk). There is no magic formula and you get out of it exactly what you put into it, no more and no less. If you just read the book there really is little point in purchasing it, but if you DO the work, the blessings will flow like water. Mine do.

  2. I started the study of “Experiencing God” for one reason and that was to know Him. I really can’t put into words what this study has meant to me. The workbook was a help to me because I need “baby” steps. Some do not and the study goes at whatever pace you need. The small group study helped me see God working through others to teach me. You learn so much about His love. I recommend this workbook in a small group study for anyone. Whether you are spiritually mature or are just starting your journey as a follower of Christ.

  3. I’ve participated in a small group study of Experiencing God once, and I taught it twice after that. I think this is one of those rare workbooks that in a simple way, captures the deeper truths of God and the Christian life. It is profoundly simple. I’ve read a lot of Christian books in my time, and there really isn’t one like this. It’s in a category of its own. You should definitely do it in the context of a small group. Beware though, it is demanding for the average reader. There are daily exercises that can take 20-30 minutes to do. These exercises are chalk full of great wisdom and insight, but for some it is a lot to do. I’ve read probably a hundred Christian books/workbooks, etc., and this one is definitely in my top 10, if not my top 5. I highly recommend it. If you’re a teen, I’d use the teen version. It’s great for everybody.

  4. 13 years ago when I became a christian, it was a profession of faith in Jesus Christ that began the journey. This bible study leads to a deeper understanding on how to “do the will of God”. This study will take you to places you have not thought of, and to places that many would rather not really go. This is the study that changed my life in my walk with God. It took me from convert to disciple. You will not regret this purchase.

  5. Are you at a crossroads in your faith journey? Do you feel like there has to be more to the relationship with God than you are experiencing but just don’t know how to get there? Then this book can help you pick up from where you are and take your life on a journey with God that will not end until THIS life is over! I took this course with a group that had mixed results. Those of us that were “ripe” for the growth that come about as a result of an in-depth study used this bible study to teach us how to have a continuously growing relationship with God. Yes, there were a couple of things in the book that I didn’t agree with, but I have never found a book that I agree with totally except the Bible. Because of this study, I have learned about God’s healing love, and now are hungry every day to read and study my Bible, devotionals and other books. I pray and praise God constantly throughout my day. It is so sweet to go to sleep with a prayer on my lips and to wake with a praise song in my heart! I was truly a Type-A personality before this study, and have found such joy and peace in turning my life over to my Lord and Master. This book will not facilitate that, though, you have to be ready in your heart for it. I am allowing God to take my life and do with it as He will instead of wasting it on the ways of this world anymore. My husband and I are beginning a journey in prison ministries that we would have never gone on without this study or something similar to it. We don’t know where the journey will take us, but look forward to the day that our God looks at us with love in His eyes, and calls us His “good and faithful servants”. If you are ready for this kind of change in your life, this study is an excellent place to start. Have a wonderful journey. Grace and peace to you. Barbara

  6. I came to the workbook expecting yet another attempt to rejuvinate my love for God and found a relationship deeper than I’ve ever known. A follower of Christ for 15 years, both devoted and devout, I was beginning to think that going through the motions was as good as it was going to get. Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing God and follow up study, When God Speaks have transformed my relationship. It is NOT profound. It is filled with many truths I’ve long known about God but I have never been so challenged in my journey as I am now. I thank God for the opportunity to have an active relationship with Him and will be forever grateful for Blackaby’s writings that have so encouraged me. I continue to struggle with many of life’s questions, but no longer seek to explain them away with religion. Instead, I know who I am and I know who God is and will continue to seek and continue to find. Relationship is fragile and too often we “christians” think we have one when we don’t. Drawing nearer to God with Blackaby’s help has saved me from my worst sin, pride. God has used Henry Blackaby to remind me that apart from Him I can do nothing of eternal importance.(John 15:5). (Incidentally, I finished the studies over one year ago)
