Welcome to God Inspired Path, a ministry inspired by my calling from God to teach people how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
My name is Kitty Rankin. I began my journey to God as a child but grew in faith as an adult. Called into the ministry late in life, I was next called to write a book about my experiences. How Do You Know When God is Speaking to You? will launch on Friday, Nov. 21, the week before Thanksgiving. It is the anniversary of the date that God called me to write this book two years ago.
How Do You Know When God is Speaking to You? is the title of a speech and sermon that I have shared for over 20 years. The purpose of writing and sharing the book is to teach people how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and, as part of my ministry, I plan to do this through speaking engagements at workshops and retreats, and with this book.
There are eight ways that God speaks to us, and those eight ways or topics are included in the book and illustrated with scripture verses and stories from my life. How Do You Know When God is Speaking to You? is a spiritual memoir of my life’s journey to Christ. Within its pages, you will learn practical ways to know when God speaks, what to do and how to listen, and how to respond.
How Do You Know When God is Speaking to You?
If I could describe the answer in one word, that one word would be “available”. God speaks to you if you are willing to be available for God.
Do you know what God wants from you? God wants to be your best friend. If you do not know how to do that, then read this book. It will help guide you to learn how to become God’s best friend.
Do you know how to become actively involved with our Lord and Savior? It is so simple, but we make it hard. Be authentic and ask God to come into your life, and allow God’s Holy Spirit to dwell in your heart.
Remember, when God is speaking, often we will not have enough information to answer the call. That can be difficult because we want things explained to us word for word. This is where trust comes in. We need to let go and follow where God wants us to go. Often, you will not understand why you are doing what you are doing, but my advice is to do it anyway. God will nudge you and nudge you to respond to a request. Pray, pray, pray. Listen, listen, listen. You will understand when you are meant to respond to God’s call. It will be a feeling that you have to do this, but you don’t know why.
If you really want to understand more fully, please read How Do You Know When God is Speaking to You? The stories and the illustrations will further define the answers to this all important question – one that shapes our lives. I will soon share more details about my book launch and I hope you will join me there.
Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.
Rev. Kitty Rankin
