Synopsis

God wants to put a face on giving – and the face he has in mind is not yours, but his.
 
What if you could take something out of your pocket today that would make God wonderfully personal and absolutely real to someone who, only minutes earlier, had been secretly calling out to God for help, for an answer, for any shred of evidence that He cares?
 
Discover the incredible resource that’s small enough to fit in your wallet or purse, yet big enough to change someone’s life – starting with yours. In The God Pocket, Bruce Wilkinson tells you what that little something is, explains how to deliver God’s provision to someone in need, and shares how God is ready to reveal Himself through you.
 
The God Pocket Prayer
 
Dear God,
Today I ask to be sent to show Your love and deliver Your funds to the person You choose. I carry Your provision in my God Pocket, and I am ready and willing. I am Your servant, Lord. Whenever You nudge me, I will respond! Here am I – please send me!

Excerpt

Invitation

What if you could take a little something out of your pocket today that would make God visible—and then give that little something to another person you just met? Of course, I’m asking you to imagine a shocking idea, but I’m completely serious.

Picture the moment. You strike up a conversation with a passerby outside a restaurant, or someone you’ve just met in the mall, or a newcomer in your church lobby. Suddenly you realize this is the moment. You smile at your new acquaintance, reach into your pocket, then lean forward. The other person doesn’t suspect a thing. But before they know what’s happening, you press into their hands the very presence and touch of our loving God. Stay with me.

Now imagine that this person only minutes earlier had been secretly calling out to God for help, for an answer, for any shred of evidence that Heaven even noticed their crisis.

And then you showed up! There you are, placing (so to speak) an enormous ball of light into the hands of the person who has been standing alone in the dark for days. Or years.

Wouldn’t that be something?

Assuming for a minute you could do such a thing, that one experience would change your life. Wouldn’t it?

The joy would be contagious.

And you’d be so lit up inside with your own happiness that everyone would notice. Years later you’d still be talking about it.

And imagine the impact on the person who, out of the blue, received what you had to share. They’d see their life and their future differently from that day on. They’d feel very differently about God too.

This book is about a mysterious little idea that’s almost too big for words. Sure, you don’t exactly pull our mighty,
living God out of your pocket or purse. But it feels very, very close to that. You’ll see. It’s happened countless times
for me and for thousands of others who have said yes to the God Pocket. If you’re willing to try it, you’ll know it was God who showed up to touch your heart and meet an urgent need in someone else’s life.

And you’ll be in a rush to say yes to another God Pocket adventure soon.

I hope you turn the page.
