“The Christian life was never meant to be a do-it-yourself project, and thank God it doesn’t have to be! The Holy Spirit is here to empower and enable us as we serve God’s purpose in our generation. In A Spirit-Empowered Life, Dr. Clarensau challenges each of us to welcome the Spirit’s work and experience all God has for us in the twenty-first century. This exciting new book will inspire your journey and change your life.” —Dr. Billy Wilson, president of Oral Roberts University

“It seems everyone is looking for something ‘extra.’ Google ‘personal power’ and you’ll get more than 242,000,000 hits! But that search for personal power is futile—never yielding enough power to manage life and its challenges. A Spirit-Empowered Life will help you discover a new way to live. No more searching for your power in books, programs, or from the latest expert. Invest just ten minutes a day for forty days and learn what it means to truly experience power. Thank God, He has a plan for you to live differently, with His power!” —Rod Loy, senior pastor, First Assembly of God, North Little Rock, Arkansas; author of Three Questions, Immediate Obedience, and After the Honeymoon

“How would you feel if you were one of Christ’s disciples and He said: ‘I’m leaving; you’re staying. Everything you try will be opposed by an adversary; and by the way, you must go out and train everyone you meet to practice all I have commanded you.’ Would you feel unprepared? Overwhelmed? Fearful? If you think this is an impossible mandate, remember that He also said: ‘Don’t be afraid; I will help you to accomplish what I require.’ Natural ability can never produce supernatural results. In his book A Spirit-Empowered Life Mike Clarensau will lead you on an exciting journey to a life that is significant, fulfilled, and spiritually effective.” —Alton Garrison, Assistant General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God
