Publisher's Summary

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.
Being Unqualified Is God's Favorite Qualification
Our culture tells us that the answer to our failures is to fix them. The solution to our weaknesses is to hide them. The secret to our success is to appear as flawless as possible. But God's qualifying system is different than the world's. So is his view of our weaknesses, our purpose, and our true selves.
In (Un)Qualified, Steven Furtick explores who God is as the great "I AM", and then helps us discover our own identity. Delving into the story of Jacob, Furtick invites us to acknowledge our weaknesses and ask God to work through them.
The truth is, God has created us to be more, to accomplish more, and to love life more than we ever thought possible. But to become who he has called us to be, we must embrace who we are right now. (Un)Qualified equips us to face obstacles and failures without losing a sense of purpose. We can have a thriving sense of hope that God is working in us and through us, not in spite of our weaknesses but often as a direct result of them.

Critic Reviews

" (Un)Qualified will take you from self-doubt and insecurity to a renewed trust in the God who called and equipped you for his will and purpose." (Joyce Meyer, Bible teacher and New York Times best-selling author)
"God doesn't call the qualified. He qualifies the called. This book will challenge you and encourage you into a life characterized by prayerful dependence and decisiveness - your life will never be the same." (Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington, DC, and New York Times best-selling author of The Circle Maker)
"Not only does Pastor Steven give voice to the hurt we so often stuff down deep when someone makes us feel as if we're not good enough, but he also points us back to the only One who can truly measure our potential. (Un)Qualified will strategically and biblically show you that even when we're overlooked by people, we are handpicked by God to play a part in his magnificent plan. This is such a needed message for today!" (Lysa TerKeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and New York Times best-selling author)

Qualified!

This book is a blessing to anyone who reads or listens to it. I will listen to it again & again. Steven does a great job relating biblical situations to our everyday lives of today. He clearly points out why we might think a certain way about ourselves & points out what God says about us using biblical refferences. If you're in a leadership role but don't feel qualified this book is especially for you! Pastor Steven Furtick you are qualified & don't allow YouTube to tell you any different.

Great reminder that it not in our strength!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, It is a great breakdown of our natural habit of running in our own strength and reminding us that if not connected to God it's futile. But also that the shame and sense of unworthiness are not of God either.

What other book might you compare (Un)Qualified to, and why?

I read this after reading his book Greater which is about the chase for all that God has it feels like a great companion.

What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?

Very clear and concise and also engaging through his use of emotion

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The concept of the third word being after I AM which is Jesus claim as being God, so any I am statement is to be God says I am.

Any additional comments?

Anybody struggling with the sense that they don't have whats necessary to serve God this is for you!!
