Would You Like to Hear from God?
I would like to invite you on a journey. Not unlike Bilbo Baggins, the journey is also an adventure. I will encourage, but never coerce you to take this journey, but I believe that I can promise you only good will come from it. On the other hand, on the way to gaining that good, there could easily be trials, danger, choices that seem impossible to make, and obstacles that seem insurmountable. Just like for Bilbo Baggins.
Since you will be seeking to hear from God and ultimately to find out His will for you, or His calling for your life, the Devil is very likely to make an effort to stop you. The last thing that the Devil wants is for Christ followers to start actually doing the will of the Father, imitating the life of the Son, or being filled by the Holy Spirit.

Serious Disciples of Jesus should read God Called - He Needs Your Decision! because, according to one reviewer:
If a baby were born and failed to thrive, the family would rightly consider it a great tragedy. When a Christian is born and fails to thrive, however, many people don’t notice. God Called—He Needs Your Decision! by Randy Kirk is an invitation to Christians to thrive. It is a spiritual counterattack to the widespread misconception that “being” a Christian is a passive state. Randy invites Christians to “do” Christianity.

Even as a Pastor sometimes we can lose focus on what it really is to be a
true disciple of Christ.
I would recommend it to any Pastor or leader of a church

God did not call a specific group of people to discipleship - the young, the mature, the outgoing. He called all of us to become disciples, disciplined ones, ready to listen and follow where He leads. My first reaction when I hear this message is to duck my head in condemnation, knowing I am not living up to this commandment. However, in his new book, God Called—He Needs Your Decision!, author Randy Kirk immediately moves toward the positive possibilities that can lead to major advances in our lives and purpose.
Just reading the first few pages, God spoke a quick word to me, setting me free from years of bondage to what people will think of me if I follow Jesus full out. Using Randy's simple steps of faith, this is a must-read for your next step in growing in grace.

The Psalmist tells us that deep calls unto deep . . . Take the plunge into
the River of Life with Randy Kirk's newest book, God Called—He Needs Your Decision! and drink deep from the well that never runs dry. Find keys to intimacy with Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit hidden in plain sight. Come away refreshed and longing for more of Him.

Randy Kirk, in his latest book, God Called—He Needs Your Decision, shows a great gift for telling his story from with the crowd. He lets the power of the principles exert the authority. He walks alongside other disciples and points to the principles.
The solid structure and content of the book attract and pull the reader toward growth. Kirk’s personal narratives are like stories shared around the fire. He and the reader work through all the same problems, and both he and the reader experience the successes and the failures, making each very real to the reader.
