Synopses & Reviews
If you are looking for God, or if you are a believer but feel something is missing, this extraordinary book by Joyce Meyer is for you. It can show you, as it was shown to her, the way to the profound joy that comes from a truly intimate relationship with God.
Using Scripture and powerful real-life examples, Joyce reveals that we, not God, determine our level of intimacy with Him. She reminds us that Moses went alone to visit God on the mountaintop while Joshua and others stood at a distance from Him. And while at least seventy people traveled with Jesus when he preached, only twelve disciples were his close companions. Of the twelve, Peter, James, and John were closer still. But only one of the three laid his head on Jesus' breast. Although Jesus loved them all, only one of his followers achieved this highest level of intimacy.
With that in mind, Joyce gives us a clear picture of four levels of commitment open to us and the gifts God gives us at each level. Discover:
- The excitement of new beginnings when God in an unexpected way moves "suddenly" into your life (If you are ready for this book, you have a "suddenly" about to come into yours!)
- The "Seven Spirits of God" as you allow Him to guide you through life's difficulties, great and small
- The special gifts God imparts to direct, protect, and empower believers for their everyday lives
- A new, God-given purpose when you let Him guide you in mind, body, and spirit to the place He wants you to go.
At each level from acknowledging God's presence to letting Him completely transform your life Joyce shows you how to move, step by step, closer to God. What relationship are you ready for? How far can you go in seeking God? What amazing accomplishments can you complete with God's help? In Knowing God Intimately, Joyce Meyer gives you the keys to finding your unique relationship with Him. God is waiting for you; the choices are yours. Will you open the door?
"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." Publishers Weekly

The depth of our relationship with God is not dependent on his pursuit of us, but on our pursuit of him and our willingness to be obedient to his Word.
In KNOWING GOD INTIMATELY Joyce Meyer explains that the depth of our relationship with God is not dependent on his pursuit of us, but on our pursuit of him and our willingness to be obedient to his Word:
"Does God have favorites? No, Scripture teaches us that we, not God, determine our own level of intimacy with Him. We have all been extended the open invitation to approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. At this moment, each one of us is as close to God's throne of grace as we choose to be.
"Looking first at God's dealings with the Israelites beginning in Exodus, chapter 19, we can see four levels of intimacy that we can choose to have with God. Moses went alone to the top of the mountain where others could also ascend to be near Him. The borders coincided with their corresponding level of maturity and commitment to pursue Him."
