Though these unprecedented and challenging times may bring a load of uncertainty and fear that feels too heavy to bear, God gives us this promise: You’ll get through this.
In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times bestselling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance, “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Whether you find yourself in the pit of financial downturn, job loss, health crisis, or relationship stresses, God has a plan and a pathway forward for you.
Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. That certainly wasn’t the case for Joseph who was tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed, but God ultimately used the intended evil against Joseph for a greater purpose.
In this book, Max will help you:
- Find comfort that you are God’s child and God cares deeply for you.
- Remember that God is near you and has never left you.
- Take courage that God will restore even the most painful circumstances and use them for good.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
From the Publisher
What people are saying about You’ll Get Through This:
“Max Lucado’s latest book, You’ll Get Through This, digs deep into what it means to go through hard times as a believer, and it gives a realistic, hopeful view of where God is in the process. Let’s face it: life is tough sometimes, and it’s easy to wonder where God is in the middle of a struggle. Max hits that head-on. As someone who has made a lot of mistakes and been through a lot of hard times, I’m really glad Max wrote this book.”
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
“It’s popular for some Christian ministers to sell the magic elixir of ‘believe and achieve,’ which quickly dispatches our pain and problems and leaves us living the free and easy life. It’s popular, but there is just one little issue—it’s not true. Real faith doesn’t get us out of trouble, just through it. Max Lucado is one of America’s most trusted Christian authors because his messages speak to people who aren’t living a fairy tale but a faith trail. This latest book is rooted in reality and in scripture. It will help you.”
—Mike Huckabee, former Governor and host of The Mike Huckabee Show and the Huckabee Report on Cumulus Radio Network; and five-time New York Times best-selling author
Kathie Lee Gifford
“Max Lucado has a genius for gently grabbing his readers in the first sentence and captivating them until the very last word. But it’s what’s on the pages in between that will move you to the very marrow: truth. In this newest book Max makes the four-thousand-year-old story of Joseph as relevant to you as today’s headlines. You will definitely come away believing that ‘you’ll get through this’—whatever ‘this’ is in your life.”
—Kathie Lee Gifford, former cohost of the Today Show
