A Call to Inspire: Bridging the Wide Chasm Between God's Will for Our Lives and Ours

A Call to Inspire is a roadmap to a closer, more intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. Travel with the authors, just plain folks, and witness the extraordinary moments God intended for them in ordinary events. Their experiences were orchestrated by the Holy Spirit in answer to frequent prayers asking Him to use them as His instrument. His ways were not spectacular yet He responded supernaturally with blessings "immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" (Ephesians 3:20, NIV). You can experience the same.

You can learn from A Call to Inspire what Naaman learned from his experience with the Prophet Elisha (2 Kings 5). Naaman was a Syrian military commander who had leprosy. In response to an Israelite servant girl's suggestion that he seek healing from Elisha, Naaman went to Elisha's house. Elisha refused to meet Naaman personally but sent a message to wash in the Jordan River seven times. Naaman left in a rage because he expected Elisha to personally call upon his God for a miraculous healing. Naaman's servants urged him to follow Elisha's directions. Naaman yielded and was completely healed. Naaman's pride and lack of obedience in faith were almost his undoing. Naaman learned, as you will, that God's ways aren't always what we expect.

God does not always respond to those looking for a spectacular sign, but more often to those seeking Him in the ordinary and mundane. He intervenes in ways most people consider fate, luck or coincidence. Your book is a classic example.

Obviously, each chapter is longer than a typical daily devotional but it has the same effect: edification for the believer and encouragement to see the Spirit's work in our own daily lives. You and Linda have some intriguing and inspiring stories to share.
