Powerful motivation to live, learn from, and love your relationship with God through Jesus.

Whenever I start a nonfiction book from a Christian author, I do so with the mindset that I'm about to learn something, grow in my relationship, and/or strengthen it. This is definitely the case with Author Susanne Weegmann's book In His Presence. There is a copy in English and in German, and it appears to be the first book in a potential series under the heading: Supernatural Life & Mindset Change. 

The tagline "honor God with your life" is true to the content and message of the book. This book certainly challenges you to look at your life and understand what you need to do in order to gain a closer relationship with the Lord. It's very matter-of-fact writing and gives wonderful examples from the Bible. The lives of Isaiah, Nehemiah, Ezekiel, Abraham, Jacob, Joshua, Gideon, Paul, Samuel, Ezra, Cornelius, and Jesus, etc. are given as examples, Scriptural references, and pieces of their story are examined to give believers hope and instruction. Weegmann points out the reasons for each man's success and victory through God's blessings. 

Several segments of that relationship are broken down into fasting, prayer, sacrifice, what a relationship looks like, how to hear His voice, how we are often tested, why trials and tribulations are needed, the importance of a covenant, our journey and friendship with God, and our overall destiny. 

This sounds like a lot of information tucked into a 124-page novel, and it is. However, it's easy to read and digest. There are prayers at the end of each chapter and the encouragement to put the knowledge from that chapter into practice. The overall message is: "My sheep hear My voice," and I can see how putting this theory into practice is not only thrilling but immensely beneficial and gratifying. 

In His Presence was something I needed to read, and it will be a book I come back to again. It's message hit me in the heart and gave me food for thought. If you wish to be spiritually encouraged, inspired to lean upon the Lord, motivated to put God first, and invigorated to rely on Jesus, then this is the book for you. I'm giving it a 5/5 "must-read" rating for all of these reasons and more. I can't wait to read more.

Thanks to the author and Reedsy Discovery for sharing an ARC copy for me to read and give an honest review.
