I LOVE Max Lucado. His books are always a delight. His books are always spot-on and chock-full of truth. I always learn something, and I’m always convicted in one area of my life or another.
His newest book, Glory Days, is no exception at all. Glory Days is sub-titled, Living your Promised Land Life Now and is a study of Joshua.
Max shares that for believers in Jesus we’ve (hopefully) left our slavery and bondage in Egypt behind, and we’re tired of living in the wilderness of unbelief and we’re ready to cross into our Promised Land. Our Land that is flowing with milk and honey. We’re ready to do battle with the sins that inhabit our promised land and eradicate everything that will prevent our total surrender to God.
He shares that for the believer the Promised Land isn’t heaven, because in the Israelites promised land they had to do battle with the enemy and in heaven we will have no enemy.
If you’re feeling left out, alone. If you’re so tired of battling temptation (and losing), if you’re desperate for a fresh start, if you’re thinking the Christian life has to be more than this, better than this, if you’re tired of thinking your prayers are never answered, you need this book!
Max offers encouragement for the road ahead. Not as one who has arrived, but as a fellow traveler. Glory Days is like a pep talk very much like the ones Joshua would give to the children of Israel and much like the Lord gave to Joshua.
Christians, it’s time we started living in our Promised Land. It’s time we stopped giving the devil a foothold in our lives. It’s high time we started taking every thought captive, stopped worrying and started fully living in our promised Land. It’s ours. It’s promised. And God is there and He’s wanting to show us how to live in our promised land. I’m ready to go.
I received a free copy of Glory Days by Max Lucado from the publisher for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
