The Blessing Of His Rod

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

King David refers to the Lord as his Shepherd with a rod and a staff that comfort him. It’s comforting for sheep to know that the shepherd is able to defend them, because there are wolves out there. But the rod and staff are not only for wolves, but also for the sheep; to be corrected, and pulled out of danger. We need the Lord’s rod to defend us from the evil one and to correct us. Parents who don’t correct their child are sinning against that child’s life. God is a good Father who loves you and corrects you. He has to correct you because a child who doesn’t have anyone correcting them is an orphan. Don’t be discouraged when you’re corrected. Rejoice in it and be encouraged. Because His rod is a sign that you’re not an orphan. You’re a child of a loving Father and a sheep of a loving Shepherd. His love protects you from the danger of the wolf, and from your own sins and mistakes. Thank God for His rod and staff, for as they comforted David, they will comfort you.

Today’s Mission

Today, rejoice in the rod of God, all the times and ways He corrected you. Be comforted, you have a Father who loves you.

The Blesser Is Greater

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Hebrews 7 we’re told of the priest-king, Melchizedek blessing Abraham – and then of a principle, which is this: “Without a doubt, the lesser person is blessed by, the greater.

In other words, the one who blesses is greater than the one who is blessed. Interesting, because most people, believers included, spend their lives trying to be blessed. Most people want others to bless them, to thank them, to praise them, recognize them, help them, and serve them. But the Bible says that the one who blesses is greater. So do you want to be great? Then bless. Do you want to be rich? Then be truly rich by giving! Do you want to be powerful? The most powerful one, is the one who can bless no matter what. Do you want to triumph over rejection? Then bless those who rejected you. Do you want to triumph over your enemies? Then bless them. Do you want to be the most joyous person? Then bless. For it’s the one who is truly blessed and who has joy that can bless. So live a life of greatness. How? Simple… Bless!

Today’s Mission – Today, be greater: bless those who have rejected or hurt you.
