Something wonderful and life-changing has been happening at Michael W. Smith’s concerts. Recently he began closing the evening with a simple prayer of blessing woven from Scripture. The response has been overwhelming. The emails and letters of testimony are like nothing he has ever experienced in his 25 years of ministry. Far from being a ‘magical’ formula for extracting wealth and possessions from God, he has discovered that God’s blessings are measured more by the flourishing of character in adversity than by the flourishing of stuff. The amazing result of God’s true blessing is overflowing joy and peace. Unfortunately, many are robbed of the promise of blessing because they seek to be blessed more than to bless others. This beautiful work, written with writer Thomas Williams, will inspire readers to examine their hearts and learn to experience God’s blessing as they seek to bless others, thus discovering the secret to drawing near to the heart of God.
