Every Detail

Every Detail by Joan Cook

"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." Matthew 10:30

Recently, I received an email from a friend I'd like to share with you.

While attending a marriage seminar on communication, Bill and his wife, Sue, listened to the instructor declare, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other."

He then addressed the men, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?"

Bill leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "Pillsbury, All-Purpose, isn't it?"

While this story is amusing, I'm afraid it is all too often true!

We might not know the intricate details of our friends, families, or even spouse's lives, but guess what? God does! The Bible very clearly tells us that He knows us so well He has the hairs of our head numbered. If God knows how many, or perhaps few, hairs you might have, don't you think He is interested in every detail about our lives, no matter how big or how small!

What a mighty God we serve!

Daily Prayer Focus: Think on Him and His awesomeness today!

Midnight Caller

Midnight Caller by Laurie McTier

"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Recently, I was getting ready for bed when all of sudden, outside, I heard brakes squealing and metal. I looked out of my bedroom window to see a dark car crashing into our fence, right next to my bedroom. I ran outside to make sure the driver was okay while calling Metro Police.  But, before I could get outside, the driver sped away. Immediately, two neighbors came down to check to make sure that everyone was okay. My husband was out of town, so I was grateful for their help. They had seen the whole thing and agreed to be witnesses for the police report.

While accessing the damage of the fence, I noticed the license plate from the speeding car was right at the edge of the fence. Ten minutes later a young man walked into the yard. I thought he was coming to check on me, but he had another agenda. He came to grab the license plate! I tried to tell him that it was evidence and that the police were on the way. But that did not stop him. He knelt down, picked up the plate, and walked up the street. When the police arrived, we filled out a report, and then I gave him the address of the young man who came to get the plate.

Many emotions were running through my mind. My thoughts were racing through the incident and I was angry and upset.  Immediately, God began to show me that He had protected my family and my home.  The fence had served as a barrier so that the car had not hit my house and possibly injured me! God also reminded me of the following scripture..."Perfect Peace has he whose mind is stayed on Thee." (Isaiah 26:3)

As I began to share the incident with my husband, God reminded me that sometimes we get just a glimpse of how His protective hand is at work. He guides our every step, He protects His children from danger, and He provides for our every need. What a blessing to be called a Child of God!

Prayer Focus: Praise God for His WatchCare and Protection!

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Finances of Team as they boldly go out for Jesus Christ. Pray that all their needs will be met at home and for the projects they are working on.

Faith Lessons

Faith Lessons by Keith Cook

"If we believe not, he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself."  II Timothy 2:13

While preaching a crusade in New York, God showed me the most delightful little book.  The title of the book is "Proving God". This book was printed in 1956.  The author chronicles the faith experiences of the China Inland Mission, the great mission that was founded by J. Hudson Taylor.

In the forward J. Oswald Sanders noted several things that I thought would be interesting to you.

1.  God will even use His enemies to fulfill His purposes
2.  God is never taken by surprise
3.  God is never too late
4.  God will care for His children
5.  God uses a variety of methods to supply our needs

As you go about your day, consider these faith lessons.

Daily Prayer Focus:  Pray that today you will begin to exercise faith in every area of your life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Families of the On The Go staff. Pray for their emotions, finances, safety, wisdom, and physical and spiritual health.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Does It Have To Be One Of Those Days?

Does It Have To Be One Of Those Days? By Keith Cook

"Our help is in the name of the Lord God, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 124:8

My mother-in-law gave me this little prayer a few years ago. I can really relate to it and thought I'd pass it along for you to enjoy, also!

Have you ever said a prayer like this?

I want to thank you, Lord, for being so close to me so far this day.

With your help, I haven't been impatient, lost my temper, been grumpy, judgmental, or envious of anyone.

But, I will be getting out of bed in a minute, and I think I'll really need your help then.

Amen

God does want to be your help. Let him help you today, tomorrow and forever.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that the gifts of the spirit will be evident in your life, even after you get out of bed in the morning!

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's World Outreach Center (WOC). This is our main office and training facility. Pray for God to protect the building, guard the mechanical and structural aspects of the facility, and use the facility for maximum eternal benefits.

On The Go with Jesus

On The Go with Jesus by Evangelist Keith Cook

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

Most people never really get outside their local church and serve Christ as a World Christian. I'm sure if you are reading this devotional from On The Go you are not like most people. You have already taken a giant step in hearing God's voice and responding to His call to service.

God is probably sending you out to do great and mighty things for Him every day. You may have heard it said "God does not send you out on a ten dollar mission with only nine dollars." What He initiates, He finishes. What He sponsors is successful. He has led you this far and His word says He will continue to make a way in the wilderness. Do not fear, we have His protection, and we are the "apple of His eye."

What makes a person bold? Does Christ want only "Super Hero" type Christians to follow Him into battle against Satan? True boldness is "Holy Boldness." Holy boldness comes when one is trusting in Christ for strength, not themselves.

When I stand up in the streets to preach, I must admit, each time I am afraid. Boldness is not automatic or continual. As I face a new situation I must call on Christ for guidance. He always gives me the right words to say. The Bible says not to worry, just be ready. "Having done all you can do to stand, stand!"
                                                 
As you stand up for God at home, at work, at school, or on a mission project remember that you have hundreds of prayer partners and co-laborers around the world standing in the gap with you.

May God bless you as you continue to be "on the go"!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for the Lord's strength and for Holy Boldness as you share Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The follow-up of inquirers who come publicly and make decisions for Christ, write in for materials to grow in Christ, or who visit our website looking for help in following Christ. Pray for local believers, churches, parents, and friends who all will be used of God to nurture each and every one to maturity in Christ.

All in God's Time

All in God's Time - Laurie McTier

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

Recently our team traveled out of the country to minister in schools, churches and a local seminary. God knew all of the specific details that had to occur for each of the team to travel and minister.

The week prior to the project, each member of our staff were on the phone with travel agents, airlines, visa services, politicians, pastors, and the missionaries trying to do everything we knew to do to make sure that all of the specifics were taken care of for each person on the team to participate. God knew that each and every team member was a vital asset and greatly needed.

As we prepared, we had faith and trusted God to do the miraculous. There were many obstacles prior to this project; but we knew that these obstacles were nothing in God's eyes. He was on top of things; He had it all under control.

For this project, there were many walls. It took the team over 31 hours to reach our final destination. The first night we had three and one half hours of sleep before our first outreach. As we went to bed that evening, we prayed and asked God to bless our rest. Those three hours were some of the most blessed and restful hours of sleep that we have had in years.

God is never late, and often times not early. He is however, always right on time. God knows when the money for the project is due, He knows when we must have the passport and visa on hand. His Word promises us as His children that He will supply all of our needs in Christ Jesus.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will enable you to truly trust Him to meet your every need.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Those who need to make decisions for Christ as On The Go and the Keith Cook Team shares the Gospel around the world. Pray that they will hear a clear message about Christ, that the Holy Spirit will move them to a point of decision and that they will be bold enough to publicly respond for Christ.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Little Things Mean A Lot

Little Things Mean A Lot - Keith Cook

"A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17

For the last three days, the devotion has been based on the same subject, an automobile accident that my wife and I were in several years ago. There are many lessons to learn from trials! For instance, you know we are to live for Jesus and are to be a witness for Him. I want to share something in relation to our automobile accident that is really important. It is how much the little things in life really do count.

When we came home from the hospital, we were taking pain medication and were still in shock from the whole ordeal. Of course, we were both laid up in bed for several days unable to do much at all. It was amazing how our friends and family came to our aid. We received over 106 emails from people saying, "get well, do better, we are praying for you..."

They were all sending us words of confidence and words of encouragement. We also had friends making gifts and coming by to see if they could do anything for us. We had one gentleman FedEx a DVD player to us so we could watch movies in the bed. Another friend brought us groceries and meals for a week. So many people were doing things for us to help in our healing.

In relationship to sharing your faith, one of the primary things we need to do if we are going to win someone to Christ and be a witness for the Lord, is to start doing the little things! Send someone a card when they are sick. Make dinner for a friend. Telephone someone just to say hello. Offer to baby sit for a couple that may not have the money to pay a sitter. There are so many little things we can do to let someone know you care. Take the time today!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that the Lord will show you someone that you can do something nice for today!

On The Go Prayer Focus: The physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial needs of people hurting all over the United States and Worldwide. As God gives us opportunity in times of crisis we need to rapidly move to help.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
