Book Review: The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Hearing the Words of God for Others

115

Imagine sitting in a seat with a belt and a bar across you lap. A harness gently glides down over your shoulders and you realize there is no turning back. You are in for the ride of your life!

The gift of prophecy can be like a roller coaster ride. The tension of ascending to the top and the exhilaration of speeding down the tracks and anticipating all the twists and turns up ahead. As fun as this may sound what are you to do if you don’t know what to do next?

Authentic relationship with God is about spending time with Him, hearing from Him, listening to Him, responding to Him

In The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Hearing the Words of God for Others, author Debbie Kitterman begins by explaining to the reader that the gift of prophecy is activated with an authentic relationship with God. Debbie states, “Authentic relationship with God is about spending time with Him, hearing from Him, listening to Him, responding to Him…it is not only about going to church, worshiping, reading the Word or praying. It is about experiencing a two-way conversation.”

Throughout The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Hearing the Words of God for Others, Debbie is not only teaching you about the gift of prophecy with Scripture and explanation, she is cheering you on with personal stories and testimonies of others. Each chapter ends with personal reflections in Go Deeper, Activation Prayer and Activation Encouragement. And many of the chapters end with a short Think on It! or Encouragement in Action which help you go deeper than the personal reflections.

One of my favorite quotes from The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Hearing the Words of God for Others is, “In today’s society, formal mentoring is almost nonexistent. It is a lost art. the ceiling we look up to should be the next generation’s floor.”

One of the greatest commands of Jesus was to go and make disciples and that is exactly what Debbie Kitterman has done in The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Hearing the Words of God for Others and I highly encourage you to get your hands on this book!
