When life gets difficult, is God paying attention? If I'm facing challenge after challenge, will God help? When my days become dark and stormy, does God notice? The answer in the life-giving stories in the Gospel of John is a resounding yes.
In You Are Never Alone, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado reminds us that our miracle-working God sees us, cares about us, and will always come to our aid, no matter what we're up against.
By tracing Jesus' miracles as told in the book of John, You Are Never Alone invites us to take a closer look at the good news John shares with each of us: God is never afraid to meet us in the middle of life's messes, extend a helping hand, and lift us out of our troubles.
You Are Never Alone will equip you to:
Get unstuck and take your first step into a better tomorrowDwell in the grace of the cross and the miracle of the empty tombBelieve that God is your ever-present source of help and hopeTake comfort that you are never without God's protection
You Are Never Alone also includes thoughtful, comprehensive reflection questions designed to go along with each chapter, giving you a chance to dive even deeper into the ways that God walks with you every step of the way.
Lucado (Anxious for Nothing), pastor at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, shares an uplifting message of hope based on Christ's parting promise. Lucado offers words of encouragement based in the scriptural telling of Jesus's miracles from the gospel of John, which includes the word believe two times twice as much as the other three gospels combined. "Belief happens when we place our confidence in God. It is a decision to lean entirely on the strength of a living and loving Savior." Exploring the story of Jesus's first miracle, when he turned water into wine, and the seemingly impossible challenge of feeding thousands with five loaves of bread and two fish, Lucado points readers to a compassionate Jesus who is willing to work in their lives when they ask for help and trust him with the results. Lucado cautions that not all prayers are answered and acknowledges that he has at times struggled with doubt about the truth of Christianity. However, he assures Christians that Jesus welcomes those who ask questions about their faith. Christians looking for strength and direction in prayer will love this faith-affirming, impassioned work.
