“When lies are not confronted, callings are not fulfilled.” – Steven Furtick
I didn’t know what to expect from this book. I’d never heard of it, but I put it on hold at the suggestion of a friend and I am so glad I did. I am only about 15 pages in, but I have already found so many relevant bits of wisdom.
Furtick’s premise in this book is that we all have a chatterbox, a representation of the lies we believe that keep us from hearing God’s voice.
The book is built around four confessions:
Confession 1: God says I am – Overpowering the lies of the Enemy in your insecurities
Confession 2: God says he will –Overpowering the lies of the enemy in your fears
Confession 3: God says He has – Overpowering the lies of the Enemy in your condemnation
Confession 4: God says I can – Overpowering the lies of the Enemy in your discouragement
The book has a section dedicated to each of these confessions, with a portion of the section explaining the confession and then a section dedicated to the practical application in our lives.
Normally, I underline and take notes in my books – this is a library book so I can’t do that, but I’m making notes on post-its and I can’t wait to see how many I end up with once I finish!
