Who you think you are is not as important as who God says you are...
Many of us wrestle with the gap between our weaknesses and our dreams, between who we are and who God says we are meant to be. We feel unqualified to do God’s work or to live out the calling we imagine. But God has a way of using our weaknesses for good. In fact, God loves unqualified people.
In (Un)Qualified, Pastor Steven Furtick helps you peel back the assumptions you’ve made about yourself and see yourself as God sees you. Because true peace and confidence come not from worldly perfection but from acceptance: God’s acceptance of you, your acceptance of yourself, and your acceptance of God’s process of change.
This is a book about understanding your identity in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning to let God use you. It’s about charging into the gap between your present and your hopes and meeting God there. After all, God can’t bless who you pretend to be. But he longs to bless who you really are; a flawed and broken person. Good thing for us that God is in the business of using broken people to do big things.
Being unqualified is God's favorite qualification...
Our culture tells us that the answer to our failures is to fix them. The solution to our weaknesses is to hide them. The secret to our success is to appear as flawless as possible. But God’s qualifying system is different than the world’s. So is his view of our weaknesses, our purpose, and our true selves.
In (Un)Qualified, Steven Furtick explores who God is as the great “I AM,” and then helps us discover our own identity. Delving into the story of Jacob, Furtick invites us to acknowledge our weaknesses and ask God to work through them.
The truth is, God has created us to be more, to accomplish more, and to love life more than we ever thought possible. But to become who he has called us to be, we must embrace who we are right now. (Un)Qualified equips us to face obstacles and failures without losing a sense of purpose. We can have a thriving sense of hope that God is working in us and through us, not in spite of our weaknesses but often as a direct result of them.

A Real Perspective
In this particular season,I am having struggles with a job that I feel like I am not making progress on, relationships that have been altered, leading a Youth Ministry and keeping a home. I literally have been feeling that I wasn't capable to handle all of this. It all rooted from the Unqualified perspective as I was giving up due to feeling like a failure to my shortcomings. This book was a blessing to me. I know that God placed this book in my life for a reason and I now understand that I put too much pressure on myself to be everything to everyone. God accepts me as I am and I didn't understand that my shortcomings are what God uses to bless you. Bless you Pastor Furtick do
This book is absolutely amazing. It's so worth reading multiple times. I am telling everyone about it.
A new season to embrace
I can’t even remember when I started this book maybe a year ago. From the start I enjoyed every moment but at times would just not read it and mainly Bc I lack in finishes things in general. My Father just passed away In the month of September 2019 and honestly it’s been a lot of tough trails that have come my way since, but also it’s been where I have felt the most peace in my life. For so long I have tried to compare myself to anything I saw as qualified but as my relationship continues to grow with God I’ve realized how much he loves me for who I am and wants to show me what he has put in me and to embrace this new season with my focus and commitment to getting to know him. And I know it will position to help my family but also my community in Long Island New York . I truly appreciate this book pastor Furtick and May God bless you and continue to bless your ministry.
