Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God’s Voice Above All Others Do you struggle with temptation? Do you struggle with weakness? In Crash the Chatterbox, Pastor Steven Furtick reminds us we don’t have to listen to the lies our society tells us. Truth is available to all who will listen. It is up to us to press ahead and pursue God’s will, even as we are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you shouldn’t. Furtick believes we all can access the power of God’s promises to constantly crash the teachings our culture promotes. Furtick says that inside your head and heart is a chatterbox, and that its lies are keeping you from realizing your God-given potential. But what can you do about them? Furtick says the voice you listen to will determine the future you experience. For the rest of the book, Furtick lays out four areas in which negative thoughts are most debilitating: insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement. He asks, “What great deeds are in danger of remaining undone in your life because of lies that were planted in your past or fears that are looming in your future?” and how to overcome them. Crash of the Chatterbox is only 219 pages long and is an easy, fun read, filled with personal stories, inspiring illustrations, and practical strategies that can lead you to a fulfilling life with God. I recommend it!
