Book Description

It’s easier to face the day when you know God is with you.

God Is With You Every Day is a brand-new 365-day devotional from Max Lucado, and his first new devotional since the creation of the Grace for the Moment® line. Max’s signature reassuring and encouraging voice, paired with the practical, relevant, and personal message that God is with you every day, makes a great way to start each day of the year.

This devotional begins each week with a prayer and scripture, followed by six days of devotions and scripture for reflection. Weaving messages of comfort, grace, and encouragement, this book is wonderful for anyone who wants a fresh infusion of faith to start each day, as well as those walking through difficult seasons of life such as loneliness, grief, or change.

You can face each day with courage – because God is with you.

About the Author

Max is the first author to win the Gold Medallion Christian Book of the Year three times—1999 for Just Like Jesus, 1997 for In the Grip of Grace and 1995 for When God Whispers Your Name. In 2005, Reader’s Digest dubbed him “America’s Best Preacher.” In addition, he has been an ECPA Gold Medallion finalist with more titles than any other author in the industry.

In 1994, he became the only author to have 11 of his twelve books in print simultaneously appear on paperback, hardcover and children's CBA bestseller lists. Lucado set a new industry record by concurrently placing nine different Word Publishing titles on the CBA Hardcover Bestseller List in both March and April 1997. Max Lucado is a fixture on the national bestseller lists – a Max Lucado title has appeared on the CBA hardcover bestseller list every month for the past dozen years. He has appeared on the Publishers Weekly, USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists. He has won eight ECPA Gold Medallion awards.

In addition to his nonfiction books, Lucado has authored several award-winning children's titles including, Just In Case You Ever Wonder, The Crippled Lamb, Alabaster's Song and the award-winning You Are Special. Max is also the author of Hermie: A Common Caterpillar, and the Max Lucado’s Hermie and Friends collection of books and DVD’s are quickly becoming a fixture on bestseller lists. He also served as the general editor for the best-selling Lucado Study Bible and God's Inspirational Promise Book.

In the Fall of 2006, he released Facing Your Giants, followed by Every Day Deserves a Chance in April of the 2007.

For over twenty years, Max has served as the Senior Pastor of the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. But he says his greatest accomplishment is finding a one-in-a-million wife in Denalyn and having three unbelievable daughters: Jenna, Andrea, and Sara.

My Review

 God is With You Every Day is a new devotional by acclaimed Christian author Max Lucado. I have enjoyed Lucado's books in the past and knew that I would enjoy this new devotional.

I am reviewing the hardcover edition. It is a compact size that is solid and looks like it can endure daily readings. Each day is one page and consists of a bible passage and a devotion. I have challenged myself to read each day's devotion this year.

Lucado wants to remind the reader that we are not alone. This devotional helps with the lonely, anxious and struggling days. God is always with us, is available and cares for us. I can easily get carried away with anxious thoughts and need to be reined in. This is very helpful.

Today is January 2nd and I find that today's devotional is very enlightening.  The bible reading is from Ephesians 5:15-16. It is about being careful and wise. The devotional is about controlling your thoughts. It is important to have happy and hopeful thoughts as a person is a product of their thoughts. And it is about making a difference. Face the day with joy. Don't be haunted by past failures. It is about spending quality time with those you love.

God is With You Every Day is encouraging and directing my prayer life. I am looking forward to spending time each morning this devotional.

I recommend this insightful and encouraging devotional, God is With You Every Day, by Max Lucado.
