Crash The Chatterbox: Hearing Gods Voice Above All Others, Written by Steven Furtick, is a book designed to help its reader hear the voice of God above all the chatter that flows through their daily lives.
Every day, we all go into battle. Our battles are different from others, but they find commonality in that they wear upon our souls and minds while striving to penetrate our hearts. What are these battles? The majority of them are negative inner voices whose only purpose is to prevent us from reaching our full potential. While it is inevitable that we will all battle these voices that attack our hearts, rip at our souls and grip our minds, it is also inevitable that they can be defeated.
Steven uses this publication to equip his readers into understanding the power of the Chatterbox, but more importantly the power to hear the voice of God above the chatter. Steven offers practical, God centered, scripturally sound, advice that will, if implemented, help the reader become more focused on God and His desires for their lives.
This book is a wonderful read that offers unique advice to its readers, making it a valuable part of any Christians personal library. Thus it is a recommended purchase.
Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
June 3, 2015
We are currently doing a book study on "Crash the Chatterbox" together and it's proven to be an excellent tool for just these purposes. It is something that every Christian struggles with. Like everything that God inspires, it has ongoing, far-reaching effects as well :)
As of this moment I have 71 Post-It tabs sticking out of the side of this book. Those tabs are my way of tagging what I call GoldenNuggets of information that give me pause, cause me to ponder, give me a lightbulb, or force a loud "Oh Em Gee YOU TOO?!" to slide out of my face.
Humorous one-liners to be sure, Steven Furtick is a master craftsman of the GoldenNugget. This book is Furtick's way of giving you the support, knowledge, and momentum you need to learn how to silence negative Enemy chatter, which he refers to as the Chatterbox, and draw in to God to hear His voice above all others.
My brain is my greatest asset and my greatest challenge. I have often battled with discernment as to who's voice I'm hearing, if I'm understanding correctly, and how to correctly identify the lies from the truth of who God says I am. This book is not a "read this and be cured", but it is definitely a useful weapon in the fight.
What I appreciate most about this book perhaps is Furtick's posture as a brother in Christ, fighting it out with the Chatterbox just like the rest of us.
"I'm learning how to overpower the shouts of the Enemy by bending my ear to the whisper of God's supernatural truths about my identity in Him and His strength in me."
Furtick's writing offers no delusion that this is somehow a skill we can learn one time and never encounter again. Explaining it as a lifetime battle that gets tougher as we climb higher, Furtick offers strategies for pushing through as we move through the levels of our faith.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for a review. I was not required to post a positive review.
