Max Lucado, pastor and New York Times bestselling author, will teach you that you're stronger than you realize because God is closer than you know in You Are Never Alone. Take comfort in the living, loving, miracle-working God who doesn't think twice about stepping into the thorny thickets of your world to lift you out.
When life feels depleted, does God? When you hear Him say, "No," does He have a response? When you're facing an onslaught of obstacles, will He help? When life grows dark and stormy, does He notice? When you face the fear of death, will He help you?
The answer can be found in the life-giving miracles in the Gospel of John, and it's a resounding YES. Do you know them? Do you believe in a Jesus who has, not only power, but a passionate love for the weak and wounded of the world? Do you really think He cares enough about you to find you in the lonely waiting rooms, rehab centers, and convalescent homes of life?
We all long for Someone who will meet us in the midst of life's messes. We long to believe in a living, loving, miracle-working God who won't think twice about stepping into the thorny thickets of our world and lift us out.
If this is your desire, then take a good look at the words of John and the miracles of Christ and see if they don't reach their goal: “That you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31).
