Publishers Description

What if we knew our lives - our everyday lives - Held a significant place in God's great plans?

Would not everything take on a different cast?

Henry Blackaby, author of the bestselling "Experiencing God "book and bible study material, believes that no Christian need live without a God-given direction. "To understand that in fact God did know you and choose you from eternity," he writes, "will give you an enormous sense of purpose in life."

"In Created to Be God's Friend Workbook, "Henry Blackaby and Kerry Skinner turn to the Old Testament patriarch Abraham to show how we can walk in growing faith and friendship with God. The Bible's compelling portraits of Abraham have profound relevance for us; through them we see how faith and obedience lead to a lifetime of joyous blessing, even when they seem bewildering and difficult.

This stand-alone workbook, which can also be read as a companion to the trade book Created to Be God's Friend, provides illuminating questions and provocative insights, allowing individuals and groups to explore how to:

Let God take the initiative to make us His friendsFollow the Lord's timing when striking out for new territory and taking risksDeal with the consequences of divine commands and opportunities we have ignoredAvoid letting success distract us from following God's callBelieve that God can bring what He started to a grand conclusion"For the God of the universe to have thoughts and purposes for us," Blackaby and Skinner remind us, "also means that He will be at work in us and around us to bring them to pass." It was true for Abraham's life. It can be true for ours as well.

This format is designed for either individuals or group leaders. " Created to Be God's Friend" is a remarkable study in our relationship with a personal God who is constantly working in each of our lives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Study of Abram/Abraham and Faith  Feb 20, 2005
This book was instructive in showing how to apply principles from the life of Abram/Abraham to today. Pastor Blackaby uses his own life and family in showing how he's experienced what he is teaching. A broad theme of this book is that as one cultivates a relationship with God by spending time in His presence, faith grows and results occur. God is molding that person in the process of intimacy with Him.

We're reminded that God's work in an individual's life has more wide-reaching implications, that other lives are blessed as a result. He provides a useful definition of worship by writing, "Worship is a deliberate, steady,focused time with God." He adds, "Worship is totally God-centered! God focused!" In worship, God reveals Himself, while in circumstances testing comes.

Humility is an important part of this process of relating to God. When a person is blessed, it is essential that God be given the glory. Success is a test. "The moment I 'take credit' I touch the Glory that belongs to God alone" he writes.

One slight note that came across in one of the other reviews (I think in a review of the workbook for this work), at times those of us who struggle may have difficulty relating because he did pick the "victories" to highlight in his life and that of his family. Like every human I'm sure it hasn't been that straightforward, but in the book at times it seems to come across that way.
God Wants to Be Your Friend, Not Your Enemy!  May 12, 2003
Blackaby's book is an excellent encouragement for those who desire a deeper relationship with God.

Using the Biblical story of Abraham as a backdrop, Blackaby covers several principles of a closer relationship with God, including:

1. God's silences are opportunities for our faith to grow.
2. Many times a long period of time may take place between God's promise and its actual fulfillment.
3. When we unconditionally release our lives to God, He will work through us to be a blessing to others for His glory.
4. God always takes the initiative with us and requires total faith in Him.
5. God will reveal His purpose when our heart totally belongs to Him.
6. God will use difficult circumstances in our lives to teach us dependence on Him instead of self-reliance.
7. God took several years to mold Abraham into the man He wanted him to be.
8. Nothing is too difficult for God!

An excellent and highly recommended read!
