Focusing On The Line

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine you were in desperate need of a million dollars. Now imagine, your father is a billionaire. What would be the wisest way to spend your energy? Should you spend your time and efforts trying to work your way out of it? Would you spend your energy trying to earn a million dollars? Or would you spend your time and energy calling or reaching out to your dad and telling him of your need? It would be wisest to go with the second option. So it is with us and the Lord. We all deal with problems, wants, needs, and issues. And most people spend most of their energy trying to figure out ways to solve their problems or to get what they want. But if you’re a believer, your Father is more than a billionaire. So instead of putting all that energy in striving to answer your need, put that energy into growing a better prayer life, a stronger devotional life, and a clearer communion with God. For the blessings that come through prayer are worth billions, and they’re waiting for you… as soon as you get on the line.

Today’s Mission

Today, put your energy into growing a better prayer life, a stronger devotional life, and a clearer communion with God. Get on the line with your Father.

An anchor for our Faith

David Wilkersonby David Wilkerson

One verse of God’s Word will keep you through any and all perilous times if you will commit your very life to it. Beloved, embrace this one verse, fully believe it, and it will be a daily power-source of faith:

“Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).

Jesus enumerates the things our heavenly Father knows we need — in short, food, drink and clothing. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on” (Luke 12:22). The overriding theme of your life should be: God knows … and that is all that matters!

If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?” (12:28). Jesus speaks of grass that is full and green today but is cut down tomorrow. He would have us remember that he gave it life and care and we dare not think he cares for our needs any less. If you are concerned about your family’s welfare, I have good news: your children are God’s children and he cares for your loved one more than you do. Jesus knows exactly what each one needs.

Jesus knows about your need to have a roof over your head; he knows about your rent or mortgage payment each month. He knows about all your needs and you can trust him fully to meet all of them. He promises to do it!

The Lord says to the rich and the poor alike, “Do not fret about your worldly possessions. Give me quality time and trust me. I am going to take care of all your needs.” “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).

Anchor your faith in the fact that your heavenly Father knows exactly what you need. He delights in you and with him you will always be safe and sound.
