The Secret Of William Booth

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In the early days of the Salvation Army, the biologist and skeptic, Thomas Huxley, launched an all-out attack on the Salvation Army and its founder, William Booth. Booth’s son Bramwell, was greatly upset over it. But William Booth told his son that he couldn’t waste his time fighting his critics, or else he would be distracted from the Lord’s call – and he would not let anything divert him from it.

Bramwell,” said Booth, “fifty years from now, it will matter very little indeed how these people treated us. It will matter a great deal how we dealt with the work of God.

William Booth was powerfully used of God to affect a nation, and a world. Why? He didn’t allow himself to get distracted from the calling God gave him. There will always be people who criticize you or attack you. But no one can take you away from God’s calling, unless you let them. You’re here for one purpose, to serve and glorify God. Don’t let yourself be distracted or turned to the right or to the left – and you too will live a powerful life for God.

Today’s Mission – Today, resolve not to be distracted by criticism that’s not of God – but set your eyes on the Lord and what you need to do for His purposes.

Your Real Goal

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Let’s say you come home from a hard day at work and all you want is peace and quiet, but your loved ones need something of you and you become irritated, upset. You end up causing conflict. They’re miserable and you’re miserable. The problem is that you had the wrong goal. The real goal should have been to be more like Messiah- to love, to become more beautiful as a person, to become a more holy person. Your goal isn’t to have a peaceful night, it’s to have a peaceful spirit, a heart of peace. You can apply this to any part of your life, any goal. Don’t let any goal cause you to lose sight of your true goal to become more like Him- to love God and others and glorify Him with your life on earth. When you do that, you will get the blessing on top of it. Not that your life will always be filled with beautiful circumstances, but that your life will be filled with a beautiful Messiah-like person, who happens to be you.

Today’s Mission – Make it your one goal today, above and beyond all goals, to be more godly, righteous, and beautiful in the Lord.
