Opens your imagination to the real though often overlooked possibility that God has a vision for your life that's greater than you think. This is the book to pick up in those honest moments when you're convinced by the desire to do more of what matters most - and that's the moment you need reassurance that you matter most to God.
'Greater' opens up the meaning of the most shocking verses in the Bible - the ones where Jesus reveals that he wants the very same thing for every one of us: 'Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.' -John 14:12.

'Greater' In Detail...
That single promise - 'even greater things than these' - should be enough to shatter our acceptance of spiritual mediocrity. Unfortunately, most believers have only tried and given up on vague notions of greatness - then settled into a life that's just good enough.
Good enough = Baseline living that is marked by mediocrity, stuck in spiritual survival mode, and controlled by complacency.
Greatness = Vague, unrealistic aspirations of doing better that don't work in real life and lead to endless frustration.
But there is a third way...
Greater = The life-altering understanding that God is ready to accomplish a greatness in your life that is entirely out of human reach - beyond anything you see in yourself on your best day, but exactly what God has seen in you all along.
Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to:
- Take a God-given dream from idea to reality.
- Stretch your limits and abilities in ways you never imagined.
- Replace the images that keep you feeling stuck in the past.
- Make a significant impact with your life starting today
- Escape the endless plans for tomorrow that you never get around to.
If you're tired of being ordinary, its time to dream bigger. If you're feeling overwhelmed about where to begin, it's time start smaller. It's time to ignite God's Greater vision for your life.
