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.

Taking Hold of Victory

David Wilkersonby David Wilkerson

God is not mocking his children when he promises, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). And he is not lying when he promises, “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry … The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:15, 17).

When we cry out to God for mercy and help, all heaven goes into motion on our behalf. It would be an incredible sight for our human eyes should the Lord let us see into the spiritual world; to behold the good things he is preparing for those who call on him and trust him.

Yet, when we are overwhelmed by circumstances beyond our control, we too often turn aside from our true Source of peace and victory. We rush to unburden our hearts to friends, pastors, counselors, and family members, searching everywhere for sympathetic advice instead of fleeing to the secret closet of prayer.

Because we do not have patience; because we live and act according to our feelings; because our flesh cannot endure delays; because we can’t see visible evidence of the secret workings of God—we do like the Israelites and turn away from Him to make things happen to please our flesh.

Oh, the matchless grace of God – to choose the most unworthy, the weakest of them all—to be His instruments. God’s promises to us are great and precious: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

God is still on the throne waiting for you to call on his name, so do not ignore the majesty and faithfulness of the loving Father. The Word tells us where the victory lies, so believe and take hold of it.
