Publisher's Summary

Are you weary? Worn out by the bills that keep stacking, a virus that keeps raging, or a heart that keeps aching? If so, the book of Esther brings welcome news: Relief will come!

To be clear, you didn't ask for this struggle. You want to get past it. You don't know how much longer you can hold up. But what if God is with you in this difficult season? When life seems off the rails, remember this truth: the minute you bow your head to pray is the moment God lifts his hand to help.

Queen Esther learned this truth firsthand. When confronted with a royal decree that would annihilate her people, she had to make some tough choices. Would she remain silent in the face of this challenge, or would she speak up? Would she blend in, or would she stand out? But after Esther spent three days in prayer and fasting, God gave her the courage to speak up. God used her to save the nation. And God can do the same with you.

In You Were Made for This Moment, pastor and New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado will help you:

  • Put your hope in the God of grand reversals, trusting that God will right every wrong
  • Cultivate courage for your challenging times by leaning on the God who redeems and restores
  • Discover your role in God's story by exploring how God can use your experiences and circumstances to join him in his holy work

God never promised us a life without trials, but he does promise to be with us as we walk through them. Trust that he can redeem your struggles for a mighty purpose. You, friend, were made for this moment.

Do you need hope?

I’ve been in a pit of depression from facing one storm after another. I’ve been praying, reading my Bible, have close to 90 books from Christian authors in my audible library. Just when I thought I couldn’t listen to one more book, I listened to this one. Max Lucado is one of my favorite authors.
When I saw this new book, I got it.
I’ve listen to it from start to finish today as I did things around the house. For the first time in a VERY long time I felt hope. This book would be great for anybody, BUT if you are going through a hard time right now you need to get this!!!!

God is always good.

Max brings to life, and our remembrance, that God works ALL things for our good. He never leaves us and He never forsakes us.
Pastor Max is a master story teller and preacher of the Word. I will read and study through this book again and again.

Timely Message

At this time, I am encouraged to hear what I’ve heard before, in a new way. I feel refreshed and hopeful for each new day. God is bigger than each and every, what is perceived as insurmountable, challenge.

used for Zoom Bible study

Used this book along with the bible study guide for the Zoom Bible study group which I belong to. It was the best study we have done so far. We enjoyed it so much that we will do Lucado's book and study guide on Jesus next.

This book is AMAZING!!!

I’ve always loved the story of Esther but they way he tells the story and makes it so applicable to live today is so well done. Gold used this book to speak to me and remind me that is always with us no matter what circumstances we may face.

The encouragement I needed

With empathy and understanding, Max Lucado shows how God cares for us within our storms, struggles, sorrows, and doubts. Though we are tempted to give up, give in, or sidestep challenges, Max encourages us to be bold, patient, and trusting. Beautifully read, I think I could listen to Ben Holland’s voice all day…oh wait, I did just that while working on the house.

not for me

the narrator is relaxing to listen to and at times it was the light narration that kept me going. The religious stories were not for me and became repetitive and preachy.

You Were Made For This Moment by Max Lucado

Absolutely fantastic , talk about an all inspiring book 😍

Max could touch a nation with this book. His honest aproach and his sense of purpose, hope and love are all concealed within the pages of this book. You are deeply eager to get though each page onto the next...but you can't help yourself, as find yourself going back over chapters to listen careful again to the hidden messages and spoken word of God; as the story of Esther's life unfolds. All I will say is please listen, or read, this book . It is so needed for today's world...

Old Testament Esther's story brought alive

Never before have I learnt so much and received so much encouragement in trusting God in all things. Highly recommended listening.
