We've all thought about wanting something more, have had grand dreams of what we want our life to be like. Many of us have also left those things behind, leaving them behind for a rainy day. However, we never act on those dreams, we just wish and hope that they will magically appear in front of us. For the most part many of us get through by doing just enough, no more and no less, we do what we are supposed to do, go through the motions in our jobs, our day, our faith. Through his latest book, Greater, Steven Furtick is challenging us to do more than we are supposed to, to do more than simply get by.

Through the story of Elisha, Furtick encourages us to 'burn our plows' and to 'dig our ditches' in order to get the most of what God has prepared for us. Following God is not an easy road and Furtick points out the difficulties and trials that will come along the way but he is also reminding us that there is something more than our everyday. That there is something greater than who we are, through this book we are encouraged to take small steps that can lead to amazing realities.

You will be inspired by the book Greater to do and reach for more, instead of sitting back and dreaming, hoping for the day your dreams will be answer Greater encourages you to 'Dream Bigger. Start Smaller.' This book is such an encouragement especially for those going through the motions of the day and hoping for something more, this book is not a self-help book that gives you an eight step plan on how to achieve greatness, instep it is a guide based in scripture on how to become greater than you are currently and to come alongside God's plans for your life.

This book is a must read and will challenge you in your everyday life.
