Glory Days by Max Lucado - REVIEWED

About the Book:
God has a Promised Land for you to claim.

Maybe you're feeling a little stuck. Caught in a rut. You're fighting the same battles and facing the same temptations. You're wondering, is this as good as the Christian life gets?

There's good news. You were made for more. You were made for Glory Days.
In God's plan, in God's land, you win more often than you lose, forgive as quickly as you are offended, and give as abundantly as you receive. You may stumble, but you will not collapse. You may struggle, but you'll defy despair. You will enjoy abundant fruit and increasing faith.
With God's help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be.
These days are Glory Days.
Your past is past,
your future is bright,
God's promises are true and
his Word is sure.
With God as your helper,
you will be all he wants you to be,
do all he wants you to do,
and receive all he wants you to receive.
These days are Glory Days.

My Thoughts:
“In Canaan you do not fight for victory.  You fight from victory.”  (p.20)

Max Lucaco’s latest book challenges believers to know and believe what God’s Word tells us! We ARE redeemed, and Holy Spirit power dwells within us!  We need to stop thinking we are fighting to win, but realize we are fighting from a place of VICTORY!  Yes, our lives will be filled with trials as we walk through this world – we’re not home yet.  But while we are here in this life, we can live and love and make an eternal difference in the world around us!

Using Joshua’s life as a guide, Lucado give one example after another from God’s Word that sets a challenge before believers – to walk in the promises of God – to enjoy Glory Days as we walk through our life journey.  This is a book filled with life examples of people who have had this paradigm shift take place in their hearts and lives.  It makes all the difference!!

I am thrilled to know that this message has come through many avenues and poured into my life!!  The church I attend has an entire curriculum based around the principles presented in this book.  I’ve heard messages from several pulpits that echo this message!  Folks, it is time to believe what God ‘s Word says and walk in it!

Lucado teaches from God’s Word throughout this book.  It is a magnificent teaching tool filled with challenges and encouragement!  I am happy to recommend it to you!!
