Steven Furtick is one of my favorite authors, speakers, and preachers. And once I saw the title of this book, I knew i had to read it. The subtitle is this: how God uses broken people to do big things. And i don’t know about you but i feel broken on a daily basis. So this book caught my attention right away. And it did not disappoint! It is very good and encouraging and yet convicting. I will definitely be re reading this in the future and referring back to it. I would highly recommend this book to both men and women! And especially if you struggle with feeling like you are too broke. To be used by God. 4 stars!
Description (from Amazon):
Who You Think You Are is Not as Important as Who God Says You Are
Many of us wrestle with the gap between our weaknesses and our dreams, between who we are and who God says we are meant to be. We feel unqualified to do God’s work or to live out the calling we imagine. But God has a way of using our weaknesses for good. In fact, God loves unqualified people.
In (Un)Qualified, Pastor Steven Furtick helps you peel back the assumptions you’ve made about yourself and see yourself as God sees you. Because true peace and confidence come not from worldly perfection but from acceptance: God’s acceptance of you, your acceptance of yourself, and your acceptance of God’s process of change.
This is a book about understanding your identity in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning to let God use you. It’s about charging into the gap between your present and your hopes and meeting God there. After all, God can’t bless who you pretend to be. But he longs to bless who you really are; a flawed and broken person. Good thing for us that God is in the business of using broken people to do big things.
