From the back cover: The Wilderness
Maybe you know it. 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.
Everyone needs to read this book. Everyone needs to hear the message that Pastor Lucado delivers in “Glory Days”. Pastor Lucado focuses our attention on Joshua, right-hand man to Moses and then leader of the Israelites. In sixteen chapters he breaks down what Joshua did and shows us a new way to approach the Throne of God. I am fascinated at what Pastor Lucado was able to come out with. This is life changing stuff. Simplicity. “Glory Days” is a book that you might want to read a few times. Once for the primary impact that it will have on your life then again for the truth that you missed the first time. You will want to give this book to family and friends so that they can know how to talk to God as well. They will always remember your gift and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!
