Prophetic Words, Encounters, Discernment, and Spiritual Growth
“Awakening Your Prophetic Voice” is an invitation to experience God’s mercy, love, and joy first hand; to discover your identity through knowing God and hearing His voice.
As I reflect on the benefits of reading Betsy Jacobs “Awakening Your Prophetic Voice.” I recall the many similarities of seeking intimacy with God through performance, of the influence of the doctrines of men, and falling for the tactics of Satan. I was deeply moved by her testimony of the miraculous encounter with God that turned her life around.
Betsy defines our prophetic nature as “any desire to grow in the prophetic is a desire to know God and experience being known by Him.” Betsy’s writing draws the reader in; she is open, comfortable telling her story and is excited about sharing the “deeper realms of intimacy with God.” Betsy is creatively articulate. She uses humor, has a great understanding of the elements of the story, and the gift of teaching.
The book is divided into two sections. In the first section, Betsy shares the story of her encounters with God. These stories are filled with expectancy, anticipation, and revelation.
The second section is made up of devotional exercises and activities with built-in listening moments, including:
- Scripture passages
- Insights on digging deeper
- Listening moments
- Profound questions to consider
- Opportunity for journaling personal responses and reflections
“Awakening Your Prophetic Voice – Identity through Prophetic Encounters with the Holy Spirit” is life transforming – powerful.
