When God Says "Go":Voices of the Faithful

A village woman dreams she would find a man by the river who would tell her of God—on the day, and at the moment a missionary happened to be walking there. In another part of the world, a missionary needed new tires for his van, but before he could get them, the vehicle was stolen. A short time later it was recovered, replete with new tires, a radio, and a backseat.

Voices of the Faithful, a compilation by Kim P. Davis of miracles, testimonies, joys, and sorrows brings the reader into communion with the heart of God as lived out through missionaries from around the world. It is a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people who are willing to pay the price of obedience and go where God leads.

This daily devotional is arranged around monthly themes such as character, prayer, contentment, etc. Beth Moore introduces each month’s theme, but the daily devotions are from the hearts of missionaries scattered from the Pacific Rim to the jungles of Africa.

Although there are many devotionals available, this one has the added benefit of allowing us to become intimate with the people who are willing to share God’s heart in difficult and unfamiliar places. Perhaps this encounter will trigger a response to commit to one of them in prayer, correspondence, or support, thereby becoming a co-worker from the comfort of our couch.

A copy of Voices of the Faithful was provided to me by Booksneeze.
