It’s a God Thing is full of stories about miracles, some extraordinary and some seemingly more ordinary, but in reality no less miraculous. One of the goals of the writer(s) of this book was to remind the readers that God’s guidance is all around us every day (from the introduction). I think they did an excellent job.

Some of the stories may seem like mere coincidences, but what I like to call God-incidents, and I am agreeing with the author(s) here that such things could be rightly called miracles.

Not every story has a completely happy ending but every story is truly edifying in its own way to some degree or another. Every story is also unique.

One of the very best things about this book was the very large variety in the type of stories, all the different topics of miracles that were included. They were not all about physical healing although those were included. They were not all about financial miracles although those were included. Some other topics were healing from addictions, salvation from natural or man-made disasters, and just plain old spiritual salvation, which as the author(s) pointed out could very well be the greatest miracle of them all. There were other topics as well, almost any topic you can imagine was included.

Reading this book didn’t exactly give me faith, since faith is not made from things that are seen or experienced but it gave me the desire to apply my faith to my life. That is what inspiring faith is all about. It can’t be imparted but it can be encouraged to be used. This book did that for me.

If you would like encouragement to apply your faith in your life this book is for you. If you generally like miracle stories this book is for you. If you are a staunch skeptic this book probably isn’t going to change your mind. No book, no story, no testimony is likely to change your mind. Only the touch of God will do that.

Some things in life have no earthly explanation.

Miracles are not reserved for the characters in the Old and New Testaments; they happen to everyday people.

Series creators Don Jacobson and K-LOVE Radio have joined together to produce one of the most remarkable collections of modern-day miracles ever compiled. From angel appearances in hospital rooms to a mother saved from a would-be assailant in Hyde Park, from a young autistic girl becoming a beautiful ballerina overnight to a young backpacker who walked away from a terrorist attack, It’s a God Thing presents some of the most amazing stories of God’s hand on our lives.

Be motivated as never before to look for and witness the incredible ways that God is interacting in your life and the lives of those around you.

“With their new book, It’s a God Thing, I believe K-LOVE and my friend Don Jacobson will call friends of Jesus everywhere to look for His capers around the world! Do you know why God involves Himself in our lives? Because God is love and love does!” —Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestseller Love Does

“Every day we all are faced with stress, situations we can’t control and often the fear that we really are all alone. . . . These stories give us courage in times of peril and strengthen us when we feel helpless.”—TobyMac, top Christian artist and Grammy Award winner

“In It’s a God Thing true servants of God share how their lives were transformed when their understanding became the Father’s. What a blessing to be a child of the King!” —Missy Robertson, star of Duck Dynasty

“There is so much going on around us that we never see. Life is all about perspective, and when that lines up with the hand of God, it is remarkable to witness. This book and collection of stories from my friends at K-LOVE will inspire and encourage you greatly!” —Andy Andrews, New York Times best-selling author, The Noticer and The Traveler’s Gift

“Sometimes I’m guilty of looking so hard for God that I miss Him right in front of me. May we all be reminded through It’s a God Thing that some of the simplest moments in life can quite possibly be some of God’s greatest miracles.”—Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe

“Nothing astonished people in the New Testament more than watching Jesus perform a miracle right before their eyes—and nothing inspires us today more than hearing He did it again! My good friend Don Jacobson, publisher of The Prayer of Jabez, has once again launched the perfect message for today—don’t miss it!”—Bruce Wilkinson, author, The Prayer of Jabez

“There is nothing better than hearing others talk about the ways that God has intervened in their lives. Miracles happen every day all around the world. These stories are incredible.”—Robert D. Smith, author, 20,000 Days and Counting

“God doesn’t need for us to be aware of the miracles He’s performing, but they’re happening every day! It’s a God Thing, a new book from K-LOVE, is a powerful vehicle to tell the story of a number of those miracles.”—Brandon Heath, 2008 New Artist of the Year Dove Award winner
