Scripture tells us to "eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy" (I Corinthians 14:1, NIV). Why "especially" the gift of prophecy? The Bible seems to emphasize prophecy as the highest gift, so there must be a good reason. And indeed, there is; in fact, there are many. This book examines Scriptures that tell us about how prophecy works: Who is authorized to pursue this gift, how people can perceive messages from God, what forms they can take, how to deliver them to the intended recipients, the necessary attitude and demeanor when doing so, common pitfalls, and more. If you have been hungering to hear the voice of God, rest assured that you can, because Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice" (John 10:27). You do hear His voice. That is wonderful in itself. But when you have the privilege of speaking into someone else's life God's own words for that specific person and moment and situation, that is even more wonderful. Yes, eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. You'll be glad you did.
