Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a spiritual rut or that you're running on empty? The Israelites certainly did, but just as they did, you too can move from the wilderness to the Promised Land. In , Max Lucado invites readers to leave the wilderness and discover a life defined by grace, refined by challenge, and aligned with a heavenly call. By studying the life of Joshua and the biblical book that bears his name, Lucado reveals God’s promises for every step and reminds readers that God still fights for them.
There are days in my life where I feel like I am drowning in despair, and overcome with defeat. There are other days where I feel as if I could take on the whole world and conquer every temptation that comes my way. But during those days when I feel depressed, one of my favorite things to do, other than turning to the Word of God, is to pick up a book such as this one and just devour it. And with a title such as Glory Days, Max Lucado pens a book that allows the reader to draw strength and feed off the scriptures enclosed within its pages.
I found myself drawn to this book after reading an excerpt and seeing the author talk about "wilderness Christians". Those who are still wandering in the wilderness of life and they haven't gotten to their "glory days" yet. They are saved, love the Lord and His Word, but are not experiencing the full joy over life like they should. Maybe they are still struggling with defeat, not getting the victory over temptation, etc. It could be a whole host of things. But Max Lucado shows from Scripture how as a Christian, we should be having "more victory than defeat, more joy than sadness, more hope than despair". I found myself encouraged to love the Lord more and not live in the despair I have been recently. One of my favorite quotes is this one, "Jesus spilled His blood for you, you can spill your heart before God". Man, it made me realize I haven't been loving Him the way I should be, which was making my days more difficult than they should be, hence the reason I wasn't having my Glory Days. If you feel like you know exactly what I am talking about, I would urge you to pick up this book. It will change your life if you allow it!
