Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is greater?
We all have honest moments when we’re gripped by a desire to feel that what we’re doing matters more. That who we are matters more.
And according to one of the most shocking verses in the Bible, Jesus 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
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.
In Greater, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to:
- Take a God-given dream from idea to reality
- Stretch your limited resources and abilities in ways you never thought possible
- Replace the images of yourself that keep you feeling stuck in the past
- Make a significant impact with your life starting today, rather than making endless plans for tomorrow that you never get around to
If you’re tired of being ordinary, it’s 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.

My Take on the Book
This was both an inspiring and proving read that will make you re-evaluate your own thoughts on the path that you are on now and where you want to be in the future. The book challenges you to achieve more and reach higher for the things that you want in life and for a more substantial relationship with God than you have now. The book encourages you to dream big and live closer to God daily. All of these things alone would make the book strong, but all together it makes the book great! This book will change not only your life personally, but also the lives that you interact with on a daily basis, as you will share the authors thoughts and ideas and they spread like fire, and soon you will all be striving to be "Greater" than you already are.
