From the back cover –
Called: A Firebrand is not about the author, it’s about you and God’s call on your life.
Are you walking by faith or does it look more like you’re a wounded soldier, army crawling by faith on most days? Have the trials of life been a more frequent companion than victory? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you are not alone. Lauren Stoenescu has been there and lived to tell about it. She wants you to know, this all-out breaking is just a precursor to finding your destiny. A destiny that was dreamed up in the heart of God. A destiny uniquely fitted for you by the One who perfectly created you.
The firebrand of God endures fiery trials. At just the right time, God pulls you from the fire, scorched and still slightly aflame, perfect for starting fires in and under His Church.
Romans 8:28-31 from the Amplified Version says it this way, “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose … And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified [declared free of the guilt of sin]; and those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity]. What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be [successful] against us?”
God’s firebrands know deep within themselves, and maybe always have, that they have a significant call on their life. You want nothing more than to answer that call with a resounding, YES! And God wants that for you too. That’s why He has been so focused on conforming you into the image of His Son. So, you can be trusted to love those He loves, into His Kingdom.
