You go to church, you read the Bible, you participate in
small groups—but do you truly know God?
God gives every Christian the tools for an active relationship with Him, but many don’t yet experience His presence in their daily lives. Dr. Tony Evans understands that the only way to deeply know God is to make seeking Him your life’s greatest purpose. In The Power of Knowing God, he shares how you can prioritize God over all else—and how doing so will transform you from the inside out.
Your relationship with the Lord can be more than intellectual knowledge, warm and fuzzy feelings, or dutiful acts of service. As you begin to understand Him personally, you will…
The Power of Knowing God will remind you that God wants you to be more than His acquaintance, His student, or His fan, and inspire you to dive headfirst into the pursuit of a life-changing relationship with your Savior.
“Why do so many people struggle with stability, calm, and peace and so frequently face a life of emotional, spiritual, or even physical chaos? The answer is simple. Because God has not been positioned before all things for them. He is not first. Instead, He is ‘in addition to’ all things. Or perhaps He comes after trying other things. Yet God will only hold the plan of your life together when He is before all things in your life.” (source)
“With grace comes the abundance and provision we need to carry out life’s mission. But when we lack God’s grace and favor in our lives, we also lack what we need to live out our destiny.” (source)
“What does it mean to fear God? It means to reverence Him in the high esteem He deserves. It means to surrender to His kingdom rule over every area of your life—to seek His viewpoint based on His inerrant Word and to walk in its ways, rather than your own. To fear God involves a conscious awareness of His presence while allowing that awareness to impact your choices.” (source)
“When a man sees a lady who captures his imagination, and he walks over to ask her, ‘What’s your name?’ he is after much more than information. While information is necessary, that’s not his goal. His goal is a relationship.” (source)
