Download Saldrás de esta: Esperanza y ayuda en tiempos difíciles by Max Lucado PDF

By Max Lucado

No será sin dolor. No será 
 de un día para otro
. Pero Dios usará este lío para bien.
Mientras tanto, mantén los angeles calma y no hagas ninguna tontería.
No te desesperes.

Con los angeles ayuda de Dios, saldrás de esta.

Tienes temor de no lograrlo. Todos le tememos a eso. Tememos que l. a. depresión nunca se vaya, que los gritos nunca cesen, que el dolor no nos deje. ¿Se aclarará este cielo gris? ¿Se alivianará esta carga?

En Saldrás de esta, el pastor Max Lucado, uno de los autores más leídos según el New York Times, ofrece una dulce seguridad. “La liberación es a l. a. Biblia lo que l. a. música es a época de carnaval: audaz, abrasadora y está en todas partes”. 

Max les recuerda a los lectores que Dios no promete que salgamos de las pruebas rápidamente y sin dolor. No fue así para José —lanzado a una fosa por sus hermanos, vendido como esclavo, arrestado injustamente, olvidado y rechazado— pero su historia en el Antiguo Testamento está en l. a. Biblia por esta razón: para enseñarnos a confiar que Dios triunfará sobre el mal.

Con l. a. compasión de un pastor y el alma de un narrador de cuentos, Max explora los angeles historia de José y los angeles verdad del Génesis 50:20. Lo que Satanás intenta para mal, Dios lo redime para bien.
