For example the very thesis verse is taken out of context and thus flawed. This is not to say that it is without value. It is good at getting people into the word and getting people used to the idea of seeking God on individual level. Blackaby covers all the different ways we can experience God and how important it is to pay attention to each of these.

Henry Blackaby is founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God. He and his wife have five children, fourteen grandchildren, and live in Rex, Georgia. Vive con su esposa e hijos en Carolina del Sur EE.
He lives with his wife and children in South Carolina. On the way up the mountain to the place of sacrifice, Isaac asked his dad, "Where is the lamb for a burnt offering? Can you imagine what Abraham might have felt at that moment, knowing that Isaac was the sacrifice?
Abraham made an adjustment of his life and acted on his belief that God was his Provider. He obeyed God. Abraham named that place after the God he had just come to know by experience.
He named the place "The-Lord-Will-Provide. This is how we also come to know God. We come to know God as we experience Him. God reveals Himself to us through our experience of Him at work in our lives. We can know about God as a Provider as we read this story about Abraham. But we really come to know God as Provider when we experience Him providing something for our lives. When we started our first mission church, we called Jack Conner as our mission pastor.
But we had no money for moving expenses and no money for a salary. We began to pray that God would provide for his move and his needs.
Book Review: Experiencing God, by Henry Blackaby
Review It is a good question to ask, since we as evangelicals believe that God is eminently active in the world and in the lives of His people. There was a time in history when the truth of a God who is at work in the world was looked on as superstitious nonsense. Many were not ashamed to say that indeed there was a God, but if so, he must be one who simply set the laws of nature in place, wound the world up, and turned it loose to unwind itself without His guidance. I, for one, am glad that we do not serve a God like that!
