About the book Expect to hear the voice of God. Morning by morning, day by day, God beckons me to hear and heed Him, "that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth my ear to hear as the learned" (Isaiah 50:4). The poems in this book are the result of going to the Bible each day with an expectation that God has something very important to say to me. That expectation has NEVER been disappointed. Our risen Lord said, "I stand at the door and knock. If any man hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:20). This intimate, two-way communion with God is not offered to the individual who has no interest in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, for the Bible plainly states that "the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Corinthians 2:14). In contrast, those who have received the Lord Jesus (John 1:12), thereby "have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God" (1 Corinthians 2:12). My prayer is that God may use this book for His glory, for the encouragement of His own children, and for the persuasion of those who may be yet awakened to their need of our Savior. "Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the post of My doors" (Proverbs 8:34). Morning by morning. Day by day. Don't miss it for the world.
