      There is More: When the World Says You Can’t, God Says You Can
Brian Houston

Founder and Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church and author of LIVE LOVE LEAD shows how, with God's power, you can believe and achieve a life that exceeds every earthly expectation. When you surrender control and follow God's guidance, you become empowered and equipped to do the impossible, reach higher, and go further than you could imagine.By building our lives around godly principles, surrounding ourselves with wisdom, and living for a cause greater than ourselves, we can effectively live out God's purposes and have an enduring impact. As Brian Houston has personally discovered, when we depend on Jesus as the source for our identity, our lives can be a lasting legacy that maximize the gifts He has given each of us as unique individuals. There is More is for anyone who wants to be challenged to live with expectancy. Ephesians 3 is a call to release the immeasurable potential within you and the exceeding, abundant, and above plans and purposes of a Holy God that are beyond your greatest imagination. "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen" (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Praise for (#u4d77e1c1-c057-56a4-b03d-95ac2b8b8632)There Is More (#u4d77e1c1-c057-56a4-b03d-95ac2b8b8632)

‘Brian Houston is a dear friend who knows what God can do in your life when you surrender all. There Is More will help you learn to live a fulfilled life by trusting God to take control. I challenge you to allow this book to impact your life.’

—RICK WARREN, senior pastor of Saddleback Church

‘If you’ve ever felt that you’ve been created for something greater, pastor Brian Houston’s new book, There Is More, is exactly what you need. Packed with spiritual truth, deep insights, and practical wisdom, this book reveals how your future can hold more than you ever thought possible. Read There Is More and prepare for God to build your faith, stretch your mind, and enlarge your perspective of what He wants to do through you.’

—CRAIG GROESCHEL, pastor of Life.Church and author of Divine Direction: 7 Decisions That Will Change Your Life

‘Why is it that most of us have what we need yet still find ourselves striving for more? My friend Brian Houston taps into this dichotomy and challenges us in the way that only he can. If you’ll dig into this book, I’m confident you’ll walk away with a greater expectation for your future.’

—STEVEN FURTICK, pastor of Elevation Church and New York Times best-selling author

‘There couldn’t be a more timely or needed book. In these confusing days, we need to be stretched where our thinking is limited, expanded where our dreams are small, and reminded that our God is not a God of confusion. In Brian Houston’s There Is More, we are encouraged to hold tight to that truth, believing that His peace, power, and light abound in even the darkest of times and that through us He can and will do immeasurably more than we can ever imagine.’

—ROMA DOWNEY, actor, producer, and president of LightWorkers Media

‘Brian Houston is an exceptional leader—God loving, Jesus focused, Holy Spirit anointed, authentic, credible, and pioneering. There Is More is a treasure trove of inspiring visionary teaching and leadership insights, combined with fascinating anecdotes and his own powerful testimony. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did.’

—NICKY GUMBEL, vicar of HTB Church, London

‘Brian’s approach in explaining how to seek God, walk by faith, dream big, and trust Him completely is very effective. I believe many will experience more of God’s destiny in their lives through the inspiration he shares.’

—JOYCE MEYER, Bible teacher and best-selling author

‘I respect and admire Pastor Brian so much that when my own dad and pastor was valiantly fighting cancer, it felt only natural to me that Pastor Brian was the kind of father, husband, and pastor I could look to for leadership in these next seasons of my life. I literally began to call him ‘my pastor,’ and the rest, as they say, is history. When I read There Is More, I noticed that the character of God has spurred Pastor Brian on to desire more of Him, to learn more about Him, to follow His hand with great faith, and to live with an expectation of His goodness in all circumstances. This hunger for more is sincere and deep and very real; not for things but for a vibrant relationship with his God. Not because he is a pastor, or a husband, or a father, but because he is first a follower of Jesus. It’s clear from these pages that Pastor Brian actively cultivates this beautiful appetite for more of God. And now he whets all of our appetites as well.’

—JUDAH SMITH, lead pastor of Churchome.org (http://Churchome.org) and best-selling author of Jesus Is _____.

‘God has a plan and a purpose for your life that is bigger than you. But God needs you to believe it, know what’s inside of you to achieve it, and build the character that sustains it. Brian Houston’s new book, There Is More, will show you the way! Don’t just make it a part of your library; make it a part of your life!’

—A. R. BERNARD, ambassador for Christ in Culture

‘My friend Pastor Brian is a strong man of God and a phenomenal leader to the body of Christ. His new book, There Is More, will challenge you to pursue the calling God has given you with renewed passion and fervor. This book is an invitation for God to take you beyond what you dreamed to be possible!’

—JOHN BEVERE, author and minister, Messenger International

Dedication (#ulink_1141972d-14cc-50ab-96ce-4dadd8faa836)

To the wonderful people who have loved me through the highs and lows of my best and worst seasons, none more so than Bobbie and our beautiful extended family, thank you for doing the journey.

To the long-serving board and elders of Hillsong Church, you have led the way and faithfully stood alongside us, always seeking the will of God. I am eternally grateful to each and every one of you.

And to the team who have worked closest to Bobbie and me through all these years, who have always wanted only God’s best for us and spurred us on toward the “more” of God’s ever-unfolding purposes, you have my deepest respect and appreciation.
