Experiencing God was my life message. This is how I had always understood and walked with God. This is how I had pastored and guided God's people. I had shared these truths in many places where I was asked to speak. Over and over again people asked, "Have you ever written anything on what you are teaching? God's people need to hear these truths." God gave me the opportunity to put this message in writing in what is known as Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God.Since 1990 God has used this study to touch and change millions of lives and thousands of churches around the world. At the tenth anniversary more than three million copies of the workbook had been distributed, and God was using other Experiencing God resources as well. The workbook is now published in 47 languages and has been used in almost every denomination. We are amazed that God, in His mercy and grace, would use such a modest work by ordinary people! He has chosen to grant His favor on His truth expressed in this study.
We have been overwhelmed by the response to the truths shared in Experiencing God. So many lives have been radically changed--in prisons; in the military; and in all walks of life, including lawyers, judges, CEOs, professional athletes, and politicians. Thousands of churches, high schools, colleges, and seminaries have been greatly helped and radically changed. God has used these truths to affect people around the world, including leaders of countries, government officials, and diplomats. Hundreds of missionaries are on the field of the world because of this study, and hundreds of others are now serving as pastors, evangelists, and faithful servants. Only heaven really knows how God has chosen to use Experiencing God.
Make it a Family Experience
Indeed, the book and Bible study that Blackaby co-authored have been translated into 47 languages, embraced by almost every denomination, and sold more than 7 million copies. The reach of Experiencing God now extends from local lawyers to national athletes, from military heroes to world leaders, from prison yards to the mission field and beyond.
And the story continues to be written for this generation and the next.
