Description

"Stickl explains how hearing the still small voice of God and obeying his call will lead us into a deeper, more passionate relationship with him.”
—Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church, Dallas/Fort Worth

There is a big difference between being set free and living free.

 
How do I know what to do with my life? How do I hear God’s voice? Maybe the answer is easier than we think. When God led the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land, He gave them a cloud to follow. He led them in an intimately personal, ever-present way one next step at a time. He led them without revealing the whole picture because he wanted them to follow by faith.
 
In Follow the Cloud, Pastor John Stickl uses this image to ask, “What if we stopped letting obligation drive us and instead let grace lead us? What if instead of focusing on our faithfulness toward God, we focus on God’s faithfulness toward us?” 
 
The cloud of God’s presence is moving in your life right now. Maybe God is inviting you to follow him to a new career or relationship. Maybe he is inviting you to extend forgiveness, share your story, or give up your addiction. Whatever your next step is, God is leading you to discover who you are, who he is, and what you were created to do. He is inviting you to a life of freedom. Inviting you home - one step at a time.

    This book does a great job of walking us through, not just how to hear God’s voice (as in the sub-title) but also hammering home the truth of our identity. That’s the foundation of everything…and it’s somehow easier to believe that God is who He says He is than to believe who He says WE are. But Follow The Cloud explains in many different ways (from the standpoint of scriptural truth) exactly who God says we are as followers of Christ. From the standpoint of our true identity, everything else starts to fall into place and then Pastor Stickl walks us through our response to God’s call and our walking with our Father as He is working in the world. It’s written in an easy reading, conversational style, with good humor thrown in and vivid examples. I finished reading it about a week. I has had such an impact on me that I’m buying copies for the team that works with me and we’ll be going through it together and I can’t wait to dive back into it a second time. Whether you’ve been walking with Jesus for a long time or are just starting your journey, I highly recommend this book to give clarity to your identity, to challenge some of your thought patterns and encourage you to keep taking your next step in your journey with Jesus.
