Funds For Your Journey

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In 1869, James Gordon Bennett, the rich publisher of the New York Herald, sent his British correspondent, Henry Stanley, on an expedition to find Dr. David Livingston. Livingston had vanished in Africa in search of the Nile. Bennett reportedly told Stanley, Draw on me for a thousand pounds today to provide for your equipment. When that’s exhausted, draw on me for another thousand, and when that’s done draw another, but find Livingston.

Now, our God who is richer and more generous, calls you to a greater journey. He calls you to finish the course knowing that in and of yourself, you’re weak and may get discouraged. But He doesn’t call you to complete the journey in your own strength or your own resources. And likewise, He says to you, Whatever you need, draw on Me. You’ll never exhaust My love, mercy, or cleansing, or use up My strength, righteousness, and grace. You’ll receive everything you need to complete your journey with victory, but don’t forget draw on Me.

TODAY’S MISSION – Today, draw on the strength of God, the life of God, the love of God, the forgiveness of God, and the joy of God.

Do you love Me?

“Every Day!” Author unknown, 1872

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.¬†God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:6-8

“Do you love Me?” John 21:17

Does not Jesus in thus appealing to me, in effect say:

For you, I left the realms of glory, and the adoration of ten thousand times ten thousand holy ones!

For you, I became incarnate, took on the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.

For you, I obeyed the law, and wrought a perfect righteousness for your justification.

For you, I endured the cross, and despised the shame.

For you, I gave My back to the smiters, and My cheeks to those who plucked off the hair.

For you, I endured the crown of thorns, and gave My hands and My feet to be nailed to the tree.

For you, I shed My blood, and laid down My life!

I loved you with a love of pity and compassion–when you were dead in trespasses and sins!

I opened your eyes, revealed to you your sinfulness and guilt, and awakened your cry for mercy.

I sought you in your wanderings–and found you!

I brought you up out of the horrible pit, and miry clay–and set your feet upon the rock.

I have loved you with an everlasting love–and therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you!

All this I have done for you–do you love Me?”

“We love Him, because He first loved us!” 1 John 4:19
