Knowing God Intimately

Being as Close to Him as You Want to Be

People can be as close to God as they choose to be – they can hear about him through the testimony of others or they can enjoy personal encounters with him on a daily basis. God’s Word clearly teaches that there are four levels of intimacy with God: Jesus taught 70, chose the 12, spoke privately to 3 (Peter, James & John), and embraced one as John lay his head upon Jesus’ breast. God invited the children of Israel to come to his mountain to receive his word. Most remained at the bottom, few more climbed father up, Joshua continued near the top with Moses, but only Moses stood in God’s presence to receive the laws written on stone tablets.

Through strong biblical examples and personal experience stories, Joyce Meyer reveals the deep relationship she enjoys with God and that it is available to everyone who will seek the continual presence of God.

    March 31, 2003
    Meyer, a bestselling author and media personality, confesses she spent many years as a Christian "just going through the motions." In this upbeat offering, she explains in a warm, conversational style how the void was filled through seeking a deeper intimacy with God, specifically in receiving and using the power of the Holy Spirit. For Meyer, God is in the details, and she looks to the Holy Spirit for guidance in everything from finding her lost TV remote ("Immediately in my spirit I thought of the bathroom and, sure enough, that's where it was") to solving serious problems, such as suffering from sexual abuse. As she unfolds four levels of commitment in achieving intimacy, there's a smattering of preacherly exhortation—"You and I need a Holy Ghost invasion!"—and some direct dialogue with the Almighty ("God once said to me...."). Meyer's simplistic illustrations occasionally range into cliché, but ensure that any reader will be able to understand her points, as when she observes that "sitting in church does not make one a Christian any more than sitting in a garage makes one a car." As a strong proponent of speaking in tongues, Meyer offers a detailed description of exactly what to do to receive "the gift," but admirably balances this with her observation that the most important gift is love. Charismatic readers and Meyer's legions of fans will appreciate this passionate discourse, while non-charismatic readers willing to overlook points of disagreement will find some insights worth pondering. (Apr.)Forecast:In a major acquisitions coup, Warner Faith signed Meyer last year in a deal that included all of her backlist titles (with 6 million copies in print) and several new works, this being the first. Meyer will promote the book for 10 consecutive days on her television program, appearing on 350 stations, and on her radio program, carried by 375 affiliates. She will also be a guest on the
    700 Club and will excerpt the book in her magazine, which has 630,000 subscribers. This will be the Crossings Book Club's main selection for April.
