About Divine Applause
“This work begs to be read by anyone who wishes to see the invisible God.”—Dr. Tony Evans, president of The Urban Alternative, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship
How do we have a relationship with a God we can’t see? There must be more to the Christian life than silence, and more to God than a vacant stare.
Divine Applause weaves together biblical insights and personal stories that illustrate the surprising ways God connects with us. Let Jeff Anderson show you how to use your spiritual senses to experience God:
• Sense God’s personal attention in unmistakable ways.
• Cultivate a constant awareness of God’s presence.
• Enjoy the reward of secrets between you and God.
• Take risks to break out of a status-quo life and connect more directly with God.
• Discover the intensity of God’s interest in you.
You don’t have to settle for a distant walk with God. He wants you to know that He notices—and that He delights in you.
“God’s love isn’t based on our performance. But He does want us to actively engage with Him, to get His ‘attention’ through prayer, devotion, and acts of service.
