Mobile, AL, February 8, 2017—John Langer owns a grocery store in a small South Dakota town. To look at him, you’d never guess he’s travelled to Thailand, Nepal, India, and many other places around the world. He’s done things others have said were crazy—giving away all of his money, fasting for 40 days in a row, and reads completely through his Bible at least one or two times every year. Why would anyone do these things? John shares the reason in his new book Yes, God Does Speak. He also relates how God has used him to preach to thousands. He’s seen the lame walk, the deaf hear, and the blind see, in Jesus’ name.
What’s the power behind these experiences? John believes it’s God’s hand at work through an ordinary man—a praying man. In the early hours of the day, you’ll find John praying and reading his Bible. That’s when God speaks to him. John shares, “As I read my Bible each morning, I learn more and more about the Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. The verses and the lessons I learn have been more valuable than any other words spoken to me, so why would God still speak to me?
“The reason is there is no place in the Bible that says, “John, go to India”; or “John, give all your money away.” There are verses that say to go to all the places on earth, and Jesus did tell a man to sell all he had and give it all away, but that was not specific to the path God has for us individually.”
Pastor Dick Nickel of Rapid City, SD sums up John’s motivation, “John Langer moves on a daily basis with a keen sense of living his life in the empowering presence of God. This has given him a full understanding…of why God created him as He has. Add to this his deep desire to be obedient to the call of the Lord in every detail of life, and you can see why John is being used effectively.”
John shares this hope for readers, “As you read these stories may they touch your heart and give you a better understanding of God that will help you walk closer to Him. May the stories you read inspire you to pursue God with all your heart.”
