This book is born out of ten years of the author meditating on the question: Why does God use some people more than others? In our zeal to be used by God, we have a tendency to rely on doing things for God. However, according to Farran when God chose to use certain individuals in the Bible, it wasn’t because of their effort or abilities. God was looking at their heart. You can become a person that is useful to God—not because of great things you do, but because of a heart that pleases Him. When God finds a heart that is fully His, He fills it to overflowing.
