The Man In The Dungeon

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

If you went to the castle of Herod Antipas at the beginning of the fourth decade of the first century, you would find the king living in luxury while a man in nothing but a garment of camel’s hair languished down below in the dungeon. It would seem clear who the successful one in life was and who the failure was. The man in the dungeon was, of course, Yochanan, John the Baptist. His life would soon be over. And yet 2000 years later, no one thinks of the name “Herod” as something good. And this particular Herod is remembered for being a corrupt, compromised, immoral, evil man. But Yochanan would become among the most honored and revered people who ever lived. He would bring Messiah and salvation to Israel and to millions of lives. So don’t ever judge your life, or whether you’re a winner or a loser, by the way it looks, or by your circumstance. Only follow the will of God, and do whatever you have to do to fulfill His call on your life. And no matter what – you will be a winner.

Today’s Mission – Today, look at your life, not by the standards of the world, but by the will and calling of God – And live accordingly.

Spirit Surfers

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

There are two ways of looking at a giant wave. If you’re in front of it and stationary, then the giant wave is dangerous. But to a surfer, a giant wave isn’t a problem but an opportunity, even a blessing. The big wave gives the surfer momentum. If the surfer stays in the center of that wave, then he becomes unstoppable and all the energy contained in that wave is given to him – so, too, with the will of God. To sin, to go against the will of God is a dangerous thing – because, in the end, nothing can stand against it. But it’s much wiser to never go against the will of God, but like the surfer, get on top of it, and in the center of it. For the one who stands and moves in the center of God’s will, will not only not be destroyed and not fall, but will be given energy, speed, power, and momentum – just as the first disciples were given on the day of Pentecost. So depart from any sin, and get out your spiritual surfboard, and catch that wave!

Today’s Mission – Today, get into the center of God’s will and allow His Spirit to give you power and momentum to share the Good News.
