Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God.
“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.
Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.
This is the key to pressing ahead and doing God’s will anyway, even as you are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you can’t do it.
I’m now awakening to the reality that we can access the power of God’s promises to constantly crash the system of our broken beliefs. I’m learning how to overpower the shouts of the Enemy by bending my ear to the whisper of God’s supernatural truths about my identity in Him and His strength in me.”

If you’re a Christian who often gets stuck thinking about the past, worrying about the future, or have trouble letting go of things, this book can be very helpful. It’s written by a pastor who openly and honestly writes about his own struggles dealing with a constant deluge of negative chatter inside his head. This “chatter” distracts him from hearing God’s voice. I really appreciate his candid confessions – from his sharing of the time he “lost it” in front of his son during Christmas, to the more recent discouragement he experienced while writing this book (he would have given up had he given in to the chatter). I’m glad Furtick ultimately “crashed the chatterbox” and finished his book because it contains some very helpful tips and practical applications.

This was a hard book for me, because it really hit me right where I needed it to. The book is all about the voices we listen to – in our head, in our heart… and how we often (far TOO often!) listen to the wrong ones. I think girls are especially susceptible to this, but I’m sure guys do it too! The author tell us that “this book is built on four confessions… meant to function like noise-cancelling headphones for your mind, heart, and soul.” He goes on to tell us that they are:

What I love most about this book is how I was able to relate to the examples he gives of the negative thoughts and self condemnation we unnecessarily inflict upon ourselves daily. We say there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, we quote scriptures for others but we lack faith for ourselves. Pastor Furtick confronts his own real life challenges of being a Christian in this book. He talks about the tricks the enemy uses to make us feel as though we are not good enough, that we are failures, that we are enept. He also tells us in this book how to fight back, gain wisdom and know who we are and where our strength comes from. The book has already helped me to combat the lies that i have believed about myself, how to recognize them as lies and how to walk in victory. Thank you Pastor Furtick, for your transparency and willingness to expose weaknesses about yourself that we all deal with but hide from others, especially other Christians. Thank you for your honesty and allowing God to use you to help others. I highly recommend this book. There is something in it for everyone!

This isn’t my favorite of Furtick’s books, but I do like it. I enjoy his style of writing because I find it easy to relate to many of the stories. He creates a visual that comes alive, and often triggers my own memories of similar situations. “Chatterbox” is a perfect description of that voice of negativity that seeks to block out all other voices…or amplifies the negative, both real and perceived, that you hear from others you encounter. A simple comment morphs into a criticism; at least that is what the ‘chatterbox’ wants you to believe. Pastor Steven says that the four key areas that can be so debilitation are Insecurity, Fear, Discouragement, and Condemnation. That voice has the power to make you lose the confidence to do what you were made to do, and more importantly, to prevent you from listening to the promises of God.

Love him or hate him, one thing is certain, Steven Furtick has us talking. In Crash the Chatterbox, Pastor Steven takes on the voices in his head. The ones that say things like, “I’m being stupid.” Doubt, panic and just pure ridiculousness races through his mind on a daily basis. It’s as if God has disappeared. The thing is, God is RIGHT THERE. We all have a chatterbox in our mind. We all spend time beating ourselves up over stupid things, baseless things…things that really have no meaning. It’s time to CRASH the chatterbox!

Controling interal dialogue

Did you know that an average person has more than 60,000 thoughts per day, and over 80% of these thoughts are negative? We all struggle with internal thoughts. Learning to control this internal dialogue is one of the most important things that we can learn in life. The Apostle Paul talks frequently about the importance of taking control of our thoughts and ties this to becoming spiritually mature. No matter what we struggle with it is made worse or better by what we tell ourselves.

Pastor Steve Furtick writes with candor and openness in his book “Crash the Chatterbox”. “Chatterbox” refers to the incessant voice in our head that makes us doubt our worth, our accomplishments, and criticizes us for every error we make. Pastor Furtick shows us how to claim God’s promises of worth and value, forgiveness for our sins, and support through troubles to inevitable success. That is spiritual success and value, not necessarily physical success and value. By no means is this a “health and wealth” prosperity gospel book. Pastor Furtick deals honestly with failure and disasters, tragedies and troubles that come to everyone’s life. We can crash the chatterbox–we must work hard and persistently with God’s help.
