Why This Spirit-Filled Bible Teacher Says Believers Must Conduct Honest, Intimate Conversations With God

Pastor Sarah Bowling (Encounter Church YouTube channel)

Like any other believer on the planet, Sarah Bowling says she is aware that she is a sinner, and that she messes up in life from time to time.

But Bowling, the daughter of legendary evangelist Marilyn Hickey, also knows God won't hold it against her if she comes to Him with a truly repentant heart. Like heroes in the Bible such as Moses, David and Adam, Bowling says an honest conversation with God and simply being in His presence can bring much-needed healing to your soul. It will allow you to overcome the enemy's lies that you are you unworthy.

That belief prompted Bowling, a powerful scholar and spirit-led Bible teacher, and the founder of Living Genuine Love ministry, to preach a series of sermons about the subject and to write a book called Hey God, Can We Talk?: Real-Life God Encounters for Real-Life Circumstances.

The host of the Living Genuine Love podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Bowling believes her book will help Christians experience much-needed life-changing encounters with God in a world whose future looks bleak and one where the enemy is quick to point fingers and condemn.

"These conversations with God are timeless. I don't think they're just for the Bible," Bowling told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "I think they are for us 21st-century Americans, because these struggles in these situations are universal for humanity.

"Those mornings that I really appreciate is when I feel like I have dialogue with God, when there is a flow," she says. "It's not every morning, but it makes me look forward to praying and that devotion time where I feel like I'm in dialogue. I may not understand everything I'm hearing, but I know the voice of God. ...

"It's like in Jeremiah 23-24, where it says let the wise man boast in wisdom, the strong man in strength, the wealthy man in his riches, but let him who boasts, boast that he knows Me," Bowling adds. "And that's my heart; knowing God and having an intimate connection with God."
