I had the opportunity to request an advanced readers copy of Steven Furtick’s latest book, (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People To Do Big Things. All that I can say is, Wow! I have been a long time fan of Mr. Furtick’s writings, but this is without a doubt his best work to date.
The basic premise of the book is that until we begin to see ourselves as God sees us, and we believe that we are who is says we are and that we can do what he says that we can do, then our lives will be shallow and basically a shadow of God’s intent.
I found his discussion of names (I Am ….) to be especially compelling and convicting. What we think when we think of ourselves really does matter. Our default beliefs about ourselves and our potential will always overcome our attempts to change, eventually. We have to align our beliefs up with God and his Word before we can ever see lasting and hopefully permanent change.
I would absolutely recommend this book to others, particularly those who struggle with a lower sense of self-worth. It is a fantastic book!
