In my recent blog post 7 Things Reading Will Do For You, I promised to follow up with a blog post on books that changed my life. You can read 7 Things Reading Will Do For You here if you haven’t done so already.
While I was reflecting, it occurred to me that in reality my life consists of several dimensions – spiritual, mental and physical. As a result of this, I intend to focus on the books that changed my spiritual life in the first instance because I am essentially a spirit being who has a soul and lives in a body. Hopefully, I will deal with the other dimensions at an opportune time.
Here then are the books that changed my spiritual life:
#1. How You Can Be Led By The Spirit of God – K.E. Hagin
A step by step guidance through the scriptures to steer you away from spiritual pitfalls and help you to follow the Holy Spirit of God in every area of your life through your conscience, inward witness, prophecy, visions and training your human spirit.
#2. The Believer’s Authority – K.E. Hagin
This classic will help you gain valuable insight into the God given authority that rightfully belongs to you as a believer in Christ.
#3. New Creation Realities – E.W. Kenyon
This is a revelation of redemption from Paul’s epistles to the churches and is a book I recommend for every earnest student of the Word.
#4. What Happened From The Cross To The Throne – E.W. Kenyon
In-depth unveiling from the scriptures of a startling revelation of what happened in the spirit realm from the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to His ascension.
#5. Understanding The Anointing – K.E. Hagin
This book is divided into three sections. New Birth, Holy Spirit, and Corporate anointing. As a student of the Word, you will find that this is required reading to fully understand the sweeping move of God that is coming upon the world.
#6. The Spiritual Man – Watchman Nee
Watchman Nee’s classic on spiritual growth has helped believers advance in their pursuit of gaining Christ by showing them the way to let the Lord fully gain them.
#7. Understanding Your Potential – Myles Munroe
According to the author, this book will cause you to be uncomfortable with your present state of accomplishments and dissatisfied with resting on your past successes. It will turn your failure into motivation and mediocrity into excellence.
I heard recently that you are the average of the five people that you hang out with. I sensed the anointing of the Holy Spirit on many occasions while reading these books. That same anointing of God is ever present on these books and as you read them, i am fully convinced that there will be transformation in your life as there was in mine some years ago.
By the grace of God, I can boldly say that I am the person I am today spiritually as a result of my contact with these books. I am sharing these resources with you because I believe that you can be better than you are presently. You can have more than you have today. You can become more than you are right now.
So, go and dare to make it happen!
