UNLEASH is a new book written by Perry Noble, Lead Pastor of NewSpring Church. I don't often blog about a particular book, but this book will take you on a challenging journey that will rock your world and the way you view it. The following insert is just a sample of the way Perry encourages the reader to re-evaluate the way he or she thinks.
"Choose a number in your head—any number you want. Go!
What number did you pick? Nearly every time I do this experiment with people, they tell me a number in the ball- park of one to one hundred.
Why would we pick a number between one and one hundred when we have the option of choosing any number in the world? Why would we not pick 1,284,383?
For many of us, it’s a simple and sad answer: we’ve been programmed to focus on the small and the manageable. We do the same thing with spiritual matters. We focus on what’s normal when God has promised He is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20, niv).
We all want our lives to count, to matter—and the good news is that God wants that for each one of us as well. The beginning of unleashing the life God wants for us is understanding that there is so much more in store for us than what we are currently experiencing." Perry Noble, UNLEASH
This book will challenge what you assume is biblical, like, "God won't give you more than you can handle." As it's title suggests, we are all bound by thoughts and junk that hinder us from experiencing the free and abundant life God created us to experience. (John 10:10)
My recommendation . . . get UNLEASH . . . study it with some friends . . . wrestle with its thoughts . . . live life unleashed and help unleash others. God didn't set us free from prison so we could go through life dragging a ball and chain.
