Discover how to build a deeper, more fulfilled relationship with God in the eye-opening study guide, You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life (The Awakening Christian Series: Book Two) by Sallie Dawkins. God speaks to all of us. He leads us to speak and act through Him if we are only willing to listen. But how do we listen? We start by creating a loving, fulfilled relationship with God by aligning ourselves to Him so we can hear His voice and inner promptings. We learn to trust His gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) guidance and act on His urgings. By following the uncomplicated steps outlined and the study guide, you can enjoy a more meaningful and cherished relationship with Christ.

You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life by Sallie Dawkins is an excellent resource for new and experienced Christians alike. I have studied the Bible for years, and yet I still found this book so insightful. I appreciated how the author, Ms. Dawkins, guides the reader through what seems to be the most basic Christian practices like praying and communion in a way that builds confidence and ease. With so much chaos in the world, now more than ever it is exceeding vital to hear God's voice and act in his love. Having read the first book in the Awakening Christian Series, I was impressed and pleased with this second installment. It is the perfect complement to any study group or can be read and applied personally.

Every good Christian needs God in their life. Yet, how many have had the opportunity to be guided by an expert in listening to God's voice? That is why Sallie Dawkins' second book of The Awakening Christian Series, You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life, is worth reading. In this inspiring volume, Dawkins recounts her experiences and offers them to you as a guide. She will help you in your inner work and encourage you to live a life feeling the presence of God within you. Dawkins also suggests some application challenges at the end of each chapter so that you can put what you have learned into practice.

I have always tried to be a good Christian, but it is especially in recent times that I have begun to read books that teach me how to recognize the voice of God. You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life is a book that will make you reflect, thanks to Sallie Dawkins' explanations and references. I particularly liked the passages regarding the way we use words (you should be very careful about them) and how to maintain an atmosphere of communion. However, every part of You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life is a source of inspiration and, at times, wonder. I confess that I felt a sense of calm as I read it. I hope all readers who want God in their lives will take the opportunity to read a great book like this one. I think we all need it.

You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life by Sallie Dawkins is a profound, easy-to-understand Christian guide about learning God’s will and developing an intimate relationship with him. As Dawkins drifted in and out of church for many years, she still felt afraid and unworthy of God’s love. In September 2015, she took the challenge of believing in God and seeing herself as He saw her. This was the beginning of her beautiful and meaningful relationship with God. In the book, she explains the significant impact the words we speak have on who we are and who become. She also expounds on the Holy Communion’s spiritual significance and its healing power. The spiritual gift of discernment of spirits is also explained. Dawkins teaches how to establish an atmosphere of peace and allow Jesus’s truth to guide your life.

When reading Sallie Dawkins’s eye-opening spiritual work, You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life, I appreciated that the content was easy to grasp and that it is based on scriptural truth. The book contains multiple biblical quotations that challenged my understanding of different topics such as the Holy Communion. Dawkins's relationship with the Holy Spirit is also inspiring. I loved that she speaks from experience and anecdotes of her encounters are included. Most important is the book’s emphasis that such a life is accessible to anyone who wants to walk and build a close relationship with God. Through the work, she shares how her faith journey has added meaning to her life and helped uplift others. You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life contains life-changing lessons to have a deeper relationship with God and adopt God’s truth for one’s life.

You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life by Sallie Dawkins is the second inspirational gem in The Awakening Christian Series. In book one, readers learn how to walk closer with God and hear from Him by opening the spiritual senses. This book takes you even closer, showing you that God wants your trust and is ready for you to know Him in a deeper way. Trust can be difficult for some, but with Bible truths and the author's own testimony, readers will find that getting to know God's heart is easier and more fulfilling than you might think. Using the Biblical premise that we are made in the likeness of God, the author explains how it is possible to grow to be more like Him and see our lives and situations from His perspective. Christians will see that Jesus is the Head of the Body and speaks life and truth. The importance and purpose of communion are conveyed in a way that is easy to understand and can be used to heal a soul in pain.

Dawkins has used her gift as a writer to lead Christians toward a closer relationship with God and Christ, which will bring peace, fulfillment, and a better awareness of yourself. The discernment of spirits is also covered, so there are different areas in this book that weren't covered in the first. After you read the first one, you'll be ready for this one. I don't think it's necessary to read book one first, but it may help those who are new to the author's concepts. If you are to grow in your Christian walk, this guide would be the perfect companion to the Bible. I like how she starts her book out by speaking on the power of words. What we tell ourselves impacts our actions as self-fulfilling prophecies. You can tell yourself negative things about yourself and others and believe them. You can tell yourself positive things about yourself and others and believe them. She then moves through blessings and abundance, her personal experiences, and amplifies her points through Bible verses. Christians who feel somewhat doubtful or disconnected from the faith they once knew can return to God once they realize that they can know His heart and understand that He loves you more than you can ever know, that He isn't angry, but forgiving. The guide ends with positive notes of hope and healing. If you've ever felt unworthy of God's love, or lost, or confused, or wonder why God would want a relationship with imperfect humans, to begin with, You Can Know the Heart of God For Your Life by Sallie Dawkins is for you.

Sallie Dawkins has authored book two of The Awakening Christian Series. This is a set of three books written to encourage spiritual growth among sincere Christians. The first book dealt with using one’s spiritual senses to hear the voice of God. Sallie turns the reader’s attention to drawing closer to the heart of God in her second book—You Can Know the Heart of God for Your Life. God’s heart is revealed in His Word. Sallie shows her love for the Word by including Scripture in every point she makes in this book. Some of these Scriptures are just references, but the book also includes many of the verses written out. We must know the Scriptures and use the Word to direct our lives to take every thought captive. We need to be open to God operating outside the realm of our little boxes. God is bigger than your biggest box.

In You Can Know the Heart of God for Your Life, Sallie Dawkins shares her life experiences and how God has changed her life. If you want your faith to be challenged and strengthened, then this is the book for you. Sallie gently shows the way to God’s heart. She writes as a guide who has been there, done that. In this book, one sees God interacting with Sallie and leading her. He will guide you too if you allow Him to. Sallie believes that living life with God is what every Christian should experience. Sallie’s book is not a call to extraordinary Christian living but to living as Christ lived. This is how God expects us to live and it should be considered normal for all Christians. Read this book and have your spiritual life strengthened.
