Litfuse Review: Glory Days by:Max Lucado

Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now
About the Book:
The wilderness. Maybe you know it well.

The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck.

Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same?

You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can’t remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer. You’re fighting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You’re out of Egypt, but Egypt’s not out of you.

Isn’t the Christian life supposed to be better than this?

Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.

But there’s good news. With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance. 

This is God’s vision for your life. You, at full throttle. You, as you were intended. You, as victor over the Jerichos and giants. You, minus the stumbles, hurts, and hate.

You and your Promised Land life.

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.

My Review:
 A life that is just like it was the day before. The same old same old day in and day out. Routine is okay until routine seems like all you have. After years of being a Christian you are fighting the same battles you were at day one. You haven't seem to grow or bear any fruit, you are living a mundane unhappy unholy life going nowhere. Just as the Israelite's did in the 40 year circle so are you experiencing the same wilderness. The same dry, desert with no hope of bearing any fruit and you look up to the Heavens wondering when it is your turn at a joyful life, a Promised Land life.

 Well look no further because Max Lucado in his latest, Glory Days will show you how to reach the same life the Israelites did after they came into the Promised Land. A life of milk and honey that elevated them into a place better than they had been previously. God can bring you into that long awaited precious life that knows no bounds. He can show you better than anyone what awaits you over that mountain.

 With the Israelites as your guide, Max Lucado helps you fight your own personal Egypt and can show you how you too, can live a Promised Land life.
