I was excited to be able to review Glory Days Living Your Promised Land Life Now by Max Lucado because I'm always looking for help in becoming the person God wants me to be. In this book, New York Times bestselling author 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. If you're stuck in a rut, fighting the same battles and temptations, this book assures you that you can enjoy abundant fruit and increasing faith. It lets you know there's good news, and that you were made for more, like the Glory Days!
I've read other books by Max Lucado and was inspired to hear that, more than 120 million readers have been inspired by the words of Max Lucado. He lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy, in San Antonio, Texas, where he serves the people of Oak Hills Church.
I really enjoyed reading this book and found lots of encouraging words along the way. Here are some of my favorite concepts I learned from the book: I need to turn every "I can't" into an "I can" because God can give me strength to do anything. I need to remember what God has already done for me and for others so I can find the courage I need to go on. There's a great section in the book that talks about the "new you" and it names who you are now in Christ and gives Scripture to back it up. I also need to remember that Jesus is stronger than everything I will ever face. It's important to always consult God in everything through prayer. Instead of focusing on all my problems, I need to think "God-thoughts." I also got a lot from the questions for reflection at the end of the book. They are a great follow up to each chapter and really help you put into perspective what you read. It's a great book that I can refer back to often when I get discouraged and need some encouragement.
If you would like to read Glory Days for yourself, you can find it at the Faith Gateway Store or on Amazon.
