“What Is Shaking In Your World?”

Max Lucado writes: “Possibly your future, your faith, your family, or finances?  It’s a shaky world out there.  Could you use some unshakable hope?”

“If so, you are not alone.  Hope is hard to come by these days.  Many people believe this world is as good as it gets, and let’s face it, it’s not that good.  Though we’ve never been more educated, entertained, and connected, the suicide rate in America has increased 24 percent in 1999 – 24 percent.  How can this be?  One of the reasons must be this:  people are dying from lack of hope.  But what if we filtered our lives and our challenges through the promises of God?  God’s promises are pine trees in the Rocky Mountains of Scripture:  abundant, unbending, and perennial.”

Our world is in need of hope.  I believe the world is longing to have hope in their lives.  The greatest source of hope is found in the Bible, where we find that true hope can be found in Jesus Christ alone.  When we think about hope, we need to look at the promises of the Bible.  Max Lucado does this in his new book, Unshakable Hope.

This is what is being said about Unshakable Hope:

“A conversation with a supervisor.  The decision of a spouse or a child.  An earthquake or a car accident.  Almost every day, an unexpected event or unforeseen circumstance arises to remind us how shaky the world is.  With the recent and tragic rise of suicide rates, it’s clear that more than ever, people are desperate for an unshakable place to build their lives.” – Louie Giglio

“Bangor, Maine, is a small town with only a few flights in and out per day yet it boasts an enormous international airport with a two-mile-long runway that can accommodate the largest planes in the world.  The reason is strategic.  Bangor is the first piece of American soil Atlantic flights hit after twenty-five hundred miles of water.  If they are in distress they don’t have to ditch in the ocean if they can just make it to Bangor.  Unshakable Hope offers for your soul what Bangor does for airplanes running on fumes:   a safe place to land.  Max
Lucado points the way to the miles-long runway of God’s unshakable hope that can handle the weight of your hurt.” – Levi Lusko

“In a world where despair and anxiety are at epidemic levels, Max reminds us that our sure and certain hope is found in the unchanging promises of God.” – Sheila Walsh

The promises of the Bible work.  “They can secure you in the midst of horrific storms.  They can buoy you in the day-to-day difficulties.  When the winds and waves of life rage, God’s promises are like lights on the shoreline, guiding us home.  And since his word is unbreakable, our hope is
unshakable.”
