The Withdrawing Of The Cloud

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Have there been times in your life and walk when you just didn’t feel the presence of God; when you didn’t feel the presence of His love, His favor, or His blessings? Maybe you felt He was distant or withdrawing from you. But in those times of life, there’s a blessing you may be missing.

If you were in the wilderness with Moses and witnessed the presence of God withdrawing from the camp, it wouldn’t have been a bad thing but a good thing. The withdrawing of His presence was a sign that He was calling His people to get moving. It was the sign that it was time to move forward in the journey to the Promised Land. In the same way, if you’re in God’s will and you don’t feel Him as close as you did, it’s a sign that God wants you to move forward, to not live by feelings, but to seek after Him. It’s a sign He wants you to make a change in your routine, to press forward to find more of Him and to enter higher ground. So don’t get down – instead, get up and follow the cloud!

Today’s Mission – Today, take time to go over all the blessings God has given you and take inventory on how rich you truly are.

Jonathan And The Judge

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When I was 19 years old, I was hit by a locomotive train and by a miracle, not killed. That’s what led me to the Lord. At the same time, after being hit by the train, I was given a summons to appear in court. I came prepared with arguments, defenses, and photographs. But the judge didn’t want to hear any of it. Instead he completely dismissed all the charges. I was still trying to give my presentation as my father motioned “He just dismissed the charges, leave the judge alone, and get out of the court!” It was a sort of foreshadowing of salvation.

As believers, we so often try to convince God to bless us, to love us, to provide for us, to protect and defend us. But we don’t have to. He’s the One who had to convince us to be saved. He loves us freely. And He gladly has chosen to give us the kingdom. So stop trying to convince God what you want and let Him convince you of the love and blessings He wants to give you – when you rest your case at the Judge’s Bench.

Today’s Mission – Today, don’t try to convince God of anything, but instead focus on letting God convince you of His grace, His love, His mercy, and His plans for your life.
