Keep going — don’t stop!

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

In the Greek Olympic games of old, a unique race was run. The winner was not the runner who finished first — it was the runner who finished with his torch still lit!

There are times in our lives when we feel like we just can’t continue in the race. These are precisely the times when the enemy loves to assault us to the point of breaking and torment us saying “You’ll never make it to the finish line, you may as well just quit now“. This is the time we need to cling on to God’s promises! The Lord will soon reward our diligence for all our toiling here in this world. Paul said, “Let us not grow weary in well-doing for in due season we shall reap if we do not faint“.

Let’s allow God’s wonderful promises to strengthen and comfort us in each circumstance so that we can run the race — not to finish first, but to run together, side by side — the flame of our torch reaching the finish line blazing brightly with fire for Him!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

The President’s Dream

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

We were in a Red Sea situation. The landlord was set to demolish the building where our congregation had been for fifteen years. We had to search for a new building and fast. My wife and I walked into a large furniture warehouse that was well beyond any expectations we had. The president of the company who owned the warehouse asked us to come to his office. There at his desk, he began to weep. He said to me, “I know you’re a man of God. I had a dream about you…twice this month…once this past week. In the dream, I knew you had something to do with Jesus.” My wife and I just looked at each other. God was amazingly preparing the answer before we had any idea that building would become our new place. The same is true for you—that no matter what you’re dealing with, God is already preparing the solution. He’s waiting at the finish line to tell you, “Your victory was here all along.” So press on. For all you have to do is keep going – and you’ll get there.

Today’s Mission – Today, in whatever trial you are going through, be confident in the fact that God is going before you and has your victory waiting up ahead.
