God wants to take you to a new place...
No Christian need live without a keen sense of purpose. And no believer need give up on finding daily closeness with God. But how do we open ourselves to the intimacy with God so evident in His friendship with Abraham? How can we experience more?
Through years of prayerful study, Henry Blackaby, author of the best-selling Experiencing God materials, has uncovered powerful ways God shaped Abraham to be His friend. The Bible's amazing portraits of Abraham, Blackaby tells us, show how God can make a follower a true friend, and how faith and obedience lead to a lifetime of joyous blessing.
The way forward is, of course, not always easy. Sometimes, Blackaby explains, God uses difficult events, traumatic experiences, and even our own faithless choices to lead us on to spiritual maturity. But from the first time we respond to God's call through the choices that carry us farther along, Abraham's story rings with assurance. Created to Be God's Friend demonstrates that God can be trusted to take us to a new place of purified character, growing love, and untold benefits.
