On Call at All Times

On Call at All Times by Laurie McTier

"So the king and all the people dedicated the temple of God." 2 Chronicles 7:5

God doesn't seek for golden vessels, and does not ask for silver ones; however, He must have clean ones. D. L. Moody

Recently, God reminded me of the importance to know the basics of His Word. It has been a joy to read His Word and to see how God has met specific needs throughout the Old and New Testament.

In 2 Chronicles, we read where King Solomon built and dedicated Temple of the Lord. God gives many specific details of the furnishings for the Temple. As I read in His Word, He showed me the parallel between God's Temple and our body. Our body is to be the Temple of God.

God wants us to love the Lord with all our heart. He requires our full commitment, absolute surrender, and obedience. As we read in His Word, King Solomon went to great lengths to insure that the Temple was clean and dedicated to the Lord. As a Christian we serve as Christ's Ambassador. This is a great responsibility and privilege, which should not be taken lightly.

To be dedicated and surrendered, our lives and hearts must often go through some exterior and interior cleansing. As I spend time with God in His Word and prayer, He often shows me areas of sin that need to be cleansed and removed.

Be open to His Spirit. God has provided the Holy Spirit to convict and reveal areas in our lives that are not pleasing to Him. Be sensitive, and obedient.

Follow His promptings upon your heart. God wants us to always be on call for Him. He can't use empty vessels; He also can't use unclean vessels. Get in the Word and spend time with God each and every day. As you seek Him, ask God to open your eyes, your ears, and your heart that you might truly become a vessel of honor and service to Him.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will give you a fresh new zeal to read His Word!

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Outreach Training Schools (OTS). In our OTS, young people and adults are trained to go to the next level in their service to God. Pray for On The Go as we train believers to make a difference in their generation.

Practice God's Presence

Practice God's Presence by Keith Cook Jr.

"Rejoice always! Pray constantly. Give thanks in everything, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus...Stay away from every kind of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. And may your spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."  1 Thessalonians 5:16-23

I read a book recently titled, "Practicing The Presence of God," by Brother Lawrence. Brother Lawrence was a cook in a monastery three hundred years ago. This cook was able to continually practice the presence of God day and night. No matter what he was doing, he was always in God's presence.

When asked his secret for constantly practicing the presence of God, Brother Lawrence said that everything he did was out of love for the Lord. Regardless of if he was sweeping the floor or talking to a friend, he would always do it out of love for the Father.

I think Brother Lawrence was able to realize, like so many of us can not, that God loves us more than we could ever imagine. For this we truly owe Him our every thought. Brother Lawrence is one of the greatest examples of someone practicing the presence of God that has ever lived.

It helps me to know that it is possible, in a world that seems to be falling farther and farther away from God, to do all that we do out of love for God. His life and example have made a tremendous impact on my life since I read his book. I hope that his example will encourage you to start practicing the presence of God no matter what your circumstances are, or where you may be, or what you may be doing.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you will practice the presence of God this week. Live above your circumstances.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's USA Outreach Effort. God has placed a United States effort on the heart and mind of the On The Go Team. Three key objectives are sharing, praying, and training in every county in the USA using On The Go Advance Teams, Training Teams, Planning Teams, Prayer Teams, GoTeams, and Outreach Efforts.

In Troubled Times

In Troubled Times by Joan Cook

When President George W. Bush declared that the United States of America was at war with Iraq in 2002, he stated that the United States will accept no other outcome other than that of Victory. We must take an active role by praying for the president, government officials, our troops, the innocent people in Iraq, and God's will and His glory! Today we encourage you to pause and to meditate on these scriptures.

1) Pray for our Government Officials.

"So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up-- one on one side, one on the other--so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword." Exodus 17:10-13

"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." Deuteronomy 20:4

"In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me." Psalms 31:1-3

2) Pray for American troops and their families.

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: 'May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels. For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, 'Peace be within you.'" Psalms 122:6-8

"For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble." Psalms 143:11

"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you." 2 Thessalonians 3:16

3) Pray for innocent civilians.

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me." Psalms 138:7

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles." 2 Chronicles 32:7,8

"The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." Psalms 9:9

4) Pray for God's will and His glory.

"Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me." Psalms 56:9

"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendour, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all." 1 Chronicles 29:11

"Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendour and majesty." Psalms 21:5

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for the government leaders, our military members and their families, innocent civilians, and God's will. Pray for Upcoming Elections for national, state, and local leaders. Pray for PEACE!

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Performing Arts Team. Pray for our team as we minister through drama, puppets, interpretive dance, and music. Our Performing Arts Teams are made up of volunteers and On The Go staffers who travel around the USA to local churches and events sharing the Good News.

Being Scared

Being Scared by Keith Cook

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." John 10:27, 28

In America, in the fall season, many people will go to haunted houses and let people jump out at them and try to scare them. We have haunted woods, haunted houses, haunted warehouses and on and on. They are not real. They are fake.

We also have scores of movies and books all written and produced to scare us and shock us with gross and unimaginable horrors.

As a little boy I can remember watching a scary movie and not being able to sleep that night. My mother told me that I should never watch another scary movie again. She was right. I have too vivid of an imagination to let it run wild on evil and horrible things.

In my life I have learned many things about what scares me and what does not. Being alone, in the dark, in a cemetery, or even a church, is way up on my list of places that scare me. Isn't that amazing. I am a grown adult but being in the dark at a church or cemetery still gives me chills.

Why? One is a place of death and one is a place of life, yet the darkness puts them both in the same category to my senses. The absence of light produces fear and unnatural imaginations.

What about you? Are you letting your mind run wild on the wrong things?

You may avoid horror stories but are you letting the Devil interpret your life for you?

You may run from scary movies but are you watching your life unfold from the Devil's projection booth.

Don't listen to him. Don't let him scare you. What he says about you are lies.  He wants to bring you down and defeat you. Don't let him.

Let the light of God's Word bring clarity and peace to your life. Turn the light up and let God shine on all your situations. Do not let anything scare you. Do not let anything keep you from the work of God in your life. Do not be scared away from doing the work God has for you to do.

Resist the Devil and he will flee from you.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for God to use you in this season of high interest in the supernatural. Use every opportunity to speak for Him and promote righteousness! Do not be scared of the Devil. Greater is He that is in you!

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.

I Want To Go There!

I Want To Go There! by Keith Cook

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

When my son was little we would play a game where we would keep up with all the cars that we passed by trying to see how many different states they were from. We often would have sighted license plates from all over the United States by the time we arrived at some of our locations.

It is easier to see many different licenses when you travel to a heavily populated place like Orlando, Florida, as opposed to traveling across Kansas. Going to see Mickey Mouse always provided many hours of great fun. While driving for hours through wheat fields usually produced snores from the back seat. There were not very many tourists out on the plains until we would get near Wall Drug and Mount Rushmore.

I always loved seeing Wyoming's plates because they had a rodeo rider on them. Joan would always be looking for Mississippi because there is no place like home for her. Keith Jr always was looking for Hawaii and never seemed to find it!

Whenever we would be driving down the road and see a neat looking license plate, Keith Jr. would say, "Dad, I want to go there some time!"  When you are young you want to do everything, go everywhere, be everything.

Let me ask you a question - Where do you want to go in life?

There are many places we all don't want to go:

Loneliville - Jesus said He came to give you life, real life, more abundantly than you have or could ever have without Him. Many people can be lonely and unfulfilled even in the midst of great activity. Jesus is the answer for loneliness.

Painville - We all avoid pain but it usually catches up to everyone eventually. There is the pain of failure, pain of regrets, pain of loss, pain of tragedy and injustice. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit for believers to be a comforter. He is able to comfort even when we do not know what is going on or where to go. Allow the Holy Spirit to be with you in your times of pain.

Fruitlessville - Many Christians know they are secure in Christ but they waste opportunities that God gives them to make a real difference for the Kingdom of Christ. By giving to Christian missions, doing local and international mission projects, being faithful to a local church, growing in the disciplines of the faith, and sharing one's testimony and the good news every believer will have great fruit as a believer and their fruit will remain.

Emptinessville - Living a life as if there was no God leads to an unfulfilled and empty life. Running out of life before allowing God any say in your life is such a waste. The countless amusements in the world and the endless number of television channels will not take the place of plain old-fashioned peace with God. When Jesus allows the Holy Spirit to fill you, you will overflow with joy, peace, happiness, contentment, purpose, power, and faith. What are you waiting for?

Valley of The Shadow - If you have to visit the valley of the shadow of death do not fear, Jesus will be with you.

Some places to consider visiting on your journey through life.

One Way Parkway - When you start your life you are taken care of by your parents. They make every decision for you. But once you reach the age of accountability you begin to make decisions on your own. Your bad actions are held against you. By your actions you are judged, rated, ranked, rewarded, fired, and blessed.

In order to become a Christian and be all God wants you to be you must walk down God's one-way street to the Cross of Jesus. Jesus died on the cross for you and wants you to admit you can not make it without God's help, believe in Jesus as your Savior, and ask Him to rule and direct your every step. Once you get on the right road Jesus actually will direct, steer, and drive your life if you will let Him.

Rightville - Knowing what is right and doing it is a virtue to visit every day in every way. Always allow the Holy Spirit to direct every area of your life.

Restoration City - Keeping a right relation with everyone is a must in life. Run from prejudice, anger, pride, bitterness, and unforgiveness.

Green Pastures - Growing in Christ means you will have a productive and happy life. Just like and animal grows by eating green grass, Christians grow by feeding on God's Word. The Bible should be your main health food. It should be devoured and feasted on if you want to live in Green Pastures.

Eternity Springs - Living forever in Heaven when you die is your final destination. Once you are in Christ your final destination is assured.

As Christians, we must give account of our actions, reactions, words, and how we use the gifts God has blessed us with. Choose today to follow God's path and walk in obedience to His plan.

Daily Prayer: Pray for guidance, direction, and sensitivity as you seek to put God first and choose to follow His plan for your life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Neighborhood Outreach Program. In reality, very little is being done to reach people in many communities across the USA. On The Go is striving to train local Christians and help them develop programs that can systematically and permanently reach real needs in their neighborhoods.

"Would This Help?"

"Would This Help?" By Keith Cook

"Instruct those who are rich in this world not to be conceded or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good to be rich in good works and to be generous and ready to share. Storing up for them selves treasures of good foundation for the future so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed." I Timothy 6.17-19

Recently my wife and I were praying and asking God to do something for us and we were saying "God if you don't come through for us we are sunk. We don't know what we are going to do."

As we were praying and trusting the Lord, we asked Him to do a miracle in the area of our finances. Miraculously, something happened right in the middle of our prayer. A young man who had only been married a couple of months called us up on the telephone. He had been on mission trips and local outreaches with us in the past. As we talked on the phone, he said, "God has told me...we have been blessed my wife and I and we wanted to do something special for you and your wife." He went on to say "Would this particular amount of money help at this time?" I excitedly said that he would not believe how wonderful that particular amount was and that God had really spoken to him because that was the exact amount that we needed to do what God was calling us to do. We all rejoiced that God would love us all so much to reveal His will to us and also that He would use us to do His will together.

You know there are people that God has blessed and they need to realize that it is important for them to share what they have with other people. We have been blessed to be a blessing. It is so hard to let go of our stuff and let God use it for His work. Tithes, offerings, gifts, and donations are all to be give cheerfully and quickly to the work of God.

Why not today share with someone around you that you know that has got a special need. Be used of God today. I'm not talking about giving to a ministry like On The Go or the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, but to individuals and special needs that God shows you today.

Daily Prayer Focus: Be obedient to God's leading in your giving this week. Ask God who you can bless.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoKids Clubs. The focus of GoKids Clubs is to present a clear Gospel message to young children in our festivals, missions, and local neighborhoods. Pray for On The Go as we minister to boys and girls and share with them the love of Jesus 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.

Escape

Escape by Keith Cook

"And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. " Exodus 33:14

Recently I was talking with author, Ken Abraham, about writing. I was really looking for some good writing tips to improve my communication skills. I was not searching for what I got. Ken made a statement right in the middle of our conversation that hit me like a ton of bricks. He referred to some secular books as "escape reading."

As I pondered that term God started me thinking about my reading habits. That moved quickly to my leisure time habits and then God camped there for a while.

I love to read. I love mystery movies and westerns on television. I sometimes read a book a night. Louis L'Amour, Sherlock Holmes, Roy Rogers, Tom Clancy, Star Trek, all have been used to help me escape.

What am I escaping to? What am I escaping for? Do I need a secular escape? Can non-religious entertainment ever be okay for me?

After I became a Christian God led me to stop most of my secular practices. I was so worldly. After about ten years God said it was alright for me to begin to read secular books and even listen to good secular music. It was hard for me and I always felt guilty, but God wanted me to have a safe escape. My conscience had been under His control long enough for me to know when a book, magazine, movie, or music were off limits.

After a while I was devouring L'Amour westerns. I loved them. I was reading several a week. It was fun and I was having a great time. Then God moved me to chart my reading habits. Most of my reading was now secular and very little was Christian.

God led me to make the following little rule for my life. For every five religious books I read I can read a secular book. This pattern works for me. For every hour I spend watching my NFL Titans football team, I have to spend equal amounts of time in quality time with my family and friends. (That means talking and listening!)

God has shown me I do need to escape. I need to rest my religious mind. I do need to leave work behind for a while. I do need to give up the pressure of being the man of the family with all the answers. But I need to escape with boundaries and these boundaries always must include Him!

What are your escape mechanisms?

How much time do you spend escaping reality?

What could you do to get back in balance?

Is God giving you your healthy pattern or safe parameters for leisure?

Daily Prayer Focus: Thank God for your "escape mechanisms". Ask Him if you have discipline and standards in your times of rest.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The "On The Go Daily" 2 Minute Radio & Podcast Program. This is a daily program airing across the United States, and World via the internet and radio stations. "On The Go Daily" is used to encourage, challenge, and motivate Christians in their daily walk.

Wisdom is Supreme

Wisdom is Supreme by Laurie McTier

"My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." Proverbs 4:20-23

True wisdom comes from the very heart of God. Wisdom is keen insight and understanding. Wisdom can also be defined as accumulated knowledge which we acquire through circumstances in our lives. Through life's experiences, we gain knowledge, discernment, maturity, and understanding. We have many examples throughout the Old and New Testament of individuals and families who learned from God as they traveled through life's experiences. They learned how to see God's hand at work in their midst. They learned how to hear His voice and obey His commands. We can also see the price that is paid when we fail to yield to God and give Him complete Lordship.

Supreme wisdom is the level of understanding that is greater than anything we have known before. It is the highest possible level or degree of understanding that we can obtain. As we endure trials and tests in our Christian walk, God will begin to build our character and show us supreme wisdom. We may not see have a burning bush experience, but God can be just as real to us today as He was to Adam and Eve, Moses, David, Elijah, Paul, the Apostle John, Mary and Martha, and so many others.

The source of supreme wisdom is God's Word. God wants us as His Children to spend time in His Word today and everyday. The Bible is a resource of treasures and promises straight from His heart. It is His love letter to us as His Children and it is full of truths, riches, and beauty. God's Word can serve as a light unto your path. He wants His word to serve as a beacon providing us direction and caution of dangers that lie ahead.

In today's scripture passage, God encourages us to listen and pay close attention to His Word. The only way that we can hear from God and know His truths is by spending time with Him. God's word is a treasure; He does not want us to let it out of our sight. Spend time today by diving into the Word of God. Find a jewel of scripture that can be an encouragement to you today. God's word also tells us to

My prayer today is that we will learn from the mistakes of others. I pray that we will not be as the Children of Israel, who though God was at work in their midst everyday, they never saw His hand or heard His footprints. The Children of Israel were too busy seeking personal gain and had to much pride to dwell on the work God was doing in their midst. As Christians in today's society, we must take a stand. Don't just live a mediocre Christian life. Stand up for Christ. Stand up and seek to learn His Word. Spend time with God, seeking His direction and will for your life. To go a step further, the way you can truly find out about God is through spending quality time with Him in prayer and in the Word of God. As we read His Word and meditate on His promises, God will give us life, liberty, and joy.

God Bless you today as personalize His word and find the treasures that He has for you.

Trusting In The Lord is Productive

Trusting In The Lord is Productive by Keith Cook

"They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever." Psalm 125:1

When you trust in the Lord you are guaranteed supernatural and divine help. God will be there for you. You can count on it. In His word He gives each believer five wonderful assurances they can count on.

1. When a believer trusts in the Lord they have COURAGE! The word says with God we "cannot" be moved. Having God protecting your back provides courage to fight any battle or courage to move out by faith in an area of risk.

2. Trusting God also produces STABILITY! When God's word says we "cannot be moved" that means we will never, ever come close to being moved from a direction Christ would have us to go. No matter what the stock market does we will have stability if we rely on Christ. No matter who is elected to office we can have stability if we trust in Jesus.

3. SECURITY is also guaranteed when one follows Christ. "The Lord surrounds His people" is not only a great promise but can be a present reality for you. Peace and rest can be yours no matter what you are going through. Security is yours for this life and forever. Once you leave this old earth behind you can be assured you will live forever with Christ in Heaven.

4.  When you trust in the Lord you also have a LEGACY. David said believers would "abide forever" and all who believe in Christ will have a legacy of hope and promise to pass down from generation to generation. A few years ago my wife's mom passed away. Joan was given her Bible. I looked through it right before I was to direct her funeral. I already knew she was a great woman of God but her Bible showed just how deep she had gone with Christ.

All throughout her Bible were scribbled dates God had given her promises out beside passages, underlined passages, sermon outlines from her favorite evangelist (Keith Cook Sr.!) and prayer reminders for those she was praying for. What a great legacy she has left behind for her family.

Her legacy was evident at her funeral. All her grandsons stood one at a time and shared a passage of scripture that reminded them of their grandmother. With tears and with pride they boldly shared each passage. They knew where she was. They also knew what she expected from them. They were to live our the legacy she had left for them. They were to follow Christ as she had followed Christ.

5. One final thought about trusting Christ. The main reward from trusting in the Lord is that it produces an optimistic and enthusiastic sense of PURPOSE in one's life. You can count on "from this time and forever" having God's Holy Spirit directing your life and giving you insight, power, and motivation to do God's perfect will. Your life is not one of chance nor a lottery as to whether or not you will make it and be successful. You are trusting in Jesus and He is trusting in you. The salvation of the lost and the working out of His plan for the future has been given to you to do in His power. Trust Him. Follow Him. Love Him. Live For Him. Produce For Him!

Daily Prayer Focus: Praise God for the opportunity to Trust in the Lord. Pray for a greater sense of Courage, Stability, Security, Legacy, and Purpose in your own life as you seek to serve God.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The GoAudio Podcasts and Radio Ministries. Currently we are producing various programs which go over the internet and international airwaves. Pray that God will continue to bless the On The GoAudio Podcasts and that He will expand the listening base. Visit OnTheGo.org to hear past broadcasts.

No Road, No Problem

No Road, No Problem by Keith Cook

"Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the high way, I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left" Deuteronomy 2:27

David Livingston, pioneer missionary to Africa, was asked by a mission board the following question: "Have you found a good road to where you are in Africa? If so,  we want to know so we can send some good men to join you." He responded, "If you have only men that will come when there is a good road, I do not want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all."

Many today are ministering with ease because someone paved a trail for them. One of my favorite sayings while on a mission project is, "You guys have it easy! You should have been with David and I when we first came here!" Then I proceed to share with the wide-eyed new evangelists our "war stories" about the good old days when there was no electricity, no pure bottled water, no internet, and no vehicles to transport us into an area.

Many of them can not believe that we actually slept on the ground or ate strange delicacies like dog, snake, worms, bugs, and live fish. They are amazed that we would walk for hours each day to share with one family way out in the jungle somewhere. They are blown away when I share of our close calls of being captured by guerillas and possible torture for sharing Christ in non-Christian areas of our world. Their hearts leap when I share of guns pointed at me while I preach, riots breaking out in Muslim areas as we minister, and gangs poised to kill us until the gang leader comes to Christ and stops them. It is hard for them to imagine how long we had to be away from friends and family.

Usually after one of my famous outbursts of nostalgia Christ will direct me to encourage them that they too have their roads to walk and their paths to chart by faith. It is hard to be too hard on them because they are trusting Christ in a world that does not understand or appreciate what they are doing. Modern religionists are even downplaying their importance in God's work. Humanism has crept into the church and is causing a whole generation of youth and young adults to question the value of going to the ends of the earth.

I am so thankful that there is a willing and mighty remnant of missionaries and evangelists who are blazing their own trails under the direction of the Holy Spirit. I work, network, and partner with many of them everyday. They live by the philosophy, "No Road-No Problem."

How about you?

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will give you Holy Boldness and New Vision as you seek to serve God wholeheartedly.

Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Warfare by Keith Cook

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." 1 John 4:4

A few years ago in our staff devotions God lead me to share with our staff about different encounters I had had concerning spiritual warfare and some demonic experiences. As you might guess it was a wild and exciting time for our staff.

As I began relating some of the supernatural experiences I had had I noticed several different expressions on our team's faces.

Some were excited
Some were shocked
Some started getting fearful
Some were even skeptical

As we went around the room sharing "war stories" it was amazing to see how much goes on in the spirit world that we can not explain in the natural realm. We all know it was not of this world but we could not prove it with an instrument. Yet if we were each put on a lie detector machine we would pass because we know it really happened.

Hearing stories about demons, the Devil, angels, and the supernatural is very exciting and shocking but God would not have us get fearful or even skeptical. He would have us live by faith and realize that "greater is He who lives in us than He who is in this world."

Daily Prayer Focus: Thank God that He is greater than any problem you have in your life. Trust Him for your protection and direction.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Joan Cook's "Women On The Go" Ministries. Joan's "Women On The Go" programs are implemented at women's conferences, local churches, retreats, and separate stand-alone events. God has given her a burden to minister to and encourage women in their walk with the Lord. Pray for Joan as she ministers and shares from her heart and as she presents motivational, evangelistic programs, materials, and leadership to and for women that will challenge and motivate them to a deeper walk with the Lord.

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.

Dream, Laugh, Shout, Call On Him

Dream, Laugh, Shout, Call On Him by Tekk√° Kelly

"Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live." Psalms 116:2

"Call His name and He'll always hear you
Look into His eyes and you'll know He's the greatest prize.
Hear His voice and you'll know He's the greatest God of Heaven and Earth.

All are His creation
No other god is worth it.
He loves me, He cares for me.
He parted the sea, He's there for me.

Do you believe in Him?
I do because He created me.
He is the greatest God of Heaven and Earth.
That's what I believe."

Each of us can relate to the poem mentioned above. We have so much to be thankful for. The Bible says, "Call unto me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you know not of." Jeremiah 33:3. Just as he does for Tekk√°, God has so much in store for all of us. Today, take His Word to heart. Find scripture passages that relate to your situation, and make His promises your prayer today. Call upon Him and allow Him to reveal Himself to you in great and mighty ways.

Daily Prayer: Praise God for Answered Prayers!

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoCare ministry. This is our acts of kindness and benevolence ministry department. The focus of our GoCare ministry is to reach out to physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hurting individuals and to build bridges between churches and their communities.

How To Start a Religious Conversation

How To Start a Religious Conversation by Keith Cook

"Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord" 2 Timothy 1:8

Evangelist Larry Moyer uses the Plow and Pursue Method. He plows in to a conversation with someone and pursues any open doors he finds. He does not rely on a script or memorized formulas.

While we believe Larry has a valid approach we also see the benefits of having a track to run on in witnessing. I believe that if we aim at nothing we will usually hit it! Nothing solid happens without prayer, thought, and preparation. Trusting God means more than sloppy evangelism and hit or miss techniques.

We have tried to come up with the simplest, most friendly, and memorable way to have a sincere non-pushy conversation with someone and still share the message of Christ at the same time. We have come up with the following acrostic to help you remember our simple way to share Christ. It is built around our ministry name "On The Go".

O - The "O" stands for the Ordinary. Talk with people about ordinary things. Their name, family, job, occupation, children, sports, etc... If you plough in like this you may find a path that comes quite natural to pursue and leads to an opportunity to share the Gospel. I call this "Holy Hovering". When you are waiting on God to open a door to share the right story or illustration.

T - The "T" stands for sharing your testimony. Sharing your story is important for people who may not believe the Bible or trust religion! They can see and hear you. Your heartfelt testimony can soften their hearts.

G - The "G" stands for sharing the Gospel and calling for a decision for Christ. Just talking about their life and sharing your testimony will not get them into Heaven. Share the Gospel - their good news!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for an opportunity to start a religious conversation today. See what God can do through you.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go Ministry Supporters. It takes teamwork to make the dream work! Our ministry supporters have made commitments to play a vital part of our team through praying, sharing, caring, going, and growing.

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.

Plan of Action

Plan of Action by Laurie McTier

"Preach the Word, be prepared in season and out of season...but you keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of the evangelist..." 2 Timothy 4:2, 5

In times of disaster, we must have a plan of action. In recent years as I tracked the path of hurricanes and natural disasters, my thoughts and prayers have gone out to those whose lives have been affected by the storms. As the storms began to roll in, our staff members were in contact with local pastors, family members, and friends so that we could follow their needs and help them with our ministry teams.

What should be our plan of action? Do we just sit back and observe, or do we take action? What would Jesus do?

1) Pray. God knows their needs and He has resources to reach each of them at the point of their need.

2) Give. You may be unable to travel to areas of devastation, but God has blessed you, and in return you want to bless others in their time of need. As you give, you will be blessed. No gift when given from the heart is small in God's eyes.

3) Go. Often times God places a burden on our heart that we must take a more active role. When God guides, He provides. He will provide the resources necessary in order that your actions and words can be effective.

There is always a need for a special plan of action. We must be prepared to reach out to physical and spiritual needs. If you or someone you know would like to know how you can be involved with On The Go Ministries in Disaster Relief, please contact our office and we will be glad to give you more information.

Daily Prayer: Pray for the lost that they will see their need for Jesus Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The GoTeam Short Term Missions Projects and GoTeam Members. GoTeams are made up of young people and adults who voluntarily go on an On The Go mission project around the world and are making a strategic impact 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.

Livingstonian Faith

Livingstonian Faith by Keith Cook

"without faith it is impossible to please God" Hebrews 11:6

Directing a ministry that reaches out around the world can be a daunting task. Everyday you have to make decisions that affect the very souls of men. The world, the Devil, and even human intellect are constantly bombarding you with negative, critical, and faithless fears and accusations.

Daily, and oftentimes moment by moment, you hear the following questions flowing through your mind and heart:

"Are you hearing from God?  Did God really say...?"

"Are you sure...? Prove it! Explain it!"

"How can we do...? Is it in the Budget? Do you have the money?"

The questions and the opportunities to turn back and shrink back into nothingness are always gnawing at your hearts gate.

Recently while I was battling my emotions and during a tense time of spiritual warfare my wife Joan asked me to find a quote for her by David Livingston. David was a pioneer missionary to Africa. I searched and searched the internet and my library but was unable to find anything she needed, but God used my study and research time to inspire me to have "Livingstonian Faith".

As I read quote after quote attributed to this missionary statesman my heart was challenged and encouraged all at the same time. David Livingston had the following to say about faith and trusting God.

"Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any tie but the tie that binds me to Thyself."

"The end of the exploration is the beginning of missionary enterprise." 

"I will go anywhere, provided it is forward."

"Fear God and work hard."

"I will place no value on anything I have or may possess except in relation to the kingdom of Christ."

"I determined never to stop until I had come to the end and achieved my purpose."

"Nothing earthly will make me give up my work in despair."

"Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give."

"Without Christ, not one step; with Him, anywhere!"

What a great legacy of faith and trust in God. We should all be challenged to live with this same kind of faith and commitment to Christ. I want to challenge you, as I was challenged, to live with "Livingstonian Faith"

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will truly give you "Livingstonian Faith," a faith that looks beyond the present and sees the hand of God.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook Crusades, Celebrations, and Festivals. God has given Keith the opportunity and privilege of sharing the message of Christ both stateside and internationally. During each opportunity, Keith presents a joyful and enthusiastic, yet powerful and clear presentation of the Gospel and a call to commitment to Christ.

Seek The Lord

Seek The Lord by Joan Cook

"Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O shameless nation, Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord's fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you! Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice, Seek righteousness, seek humility, It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger." Zephaniah 2:1-3

As a nation, we have a choice to make; we can turn toward God or turn away from Him and His ways. This nation was founded on Christian principles by God-fearing men who knew that it was God who could cause a nation to succeed or fail.

We must realize that we are in a critical time in our nation. We are at a crossroads. We will either choose to go God's way or our own way. I'm afraid in recent years, we have chosen the latter. God will not force Himself on anyone or force His ways on any nation. We have the freedom to choose!

As Christians, one of our responsibilities is to speak up when the things of God are being stepped on. You may not think you should get involved because it's the politician's job! I believe that the Lord wants us to stand up for the things of God. If our founding fathers had never stood up, we might not even be a nation today! The Bible tells us that we are to open our mouths against injustice and speak out for righteousness.

Before the Lord's wrath and anger falls upon us as a nation, we must seek the Lord and cause others to seek Him as well.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for the leaders of our country! Pray for our nation to come back to the Lord before it is too late!

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Interns who faithfully come to On The Go each year to work for Christ and learn how to do ministry that matters for the kingdom of God.

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.

Mastering The Word

Mastering The Word by Keith Cook

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:8

Mastering the Word of God will always be a quest for me, sort of a vision quest. If I want more visions and dreams then I must master the Word that God is giving me. Mastering the Word of God requires not just busy work or something you have to do to please God. It is actually a privilege to meet with God each day and have holy dialog.

How can you begin to master the Word of God?

1) Read The Word - Reading God's Word takes discipline and time. You can read the Bible through in one year if you simply read the Bible each day for only fifteen minutes! Start today. If you miss a day pick back up where you stopped. Keep a simple checklist of what you are reading.

2) Hear The Word - Listen to great teachers and preachers. Go to church and attend services regularly. Take notes on each sermon or lecture you hear. Keep a notebook and write down the speaker's name, date, scripture, outline, illustrations, or points.

3) Study The Word - After a while you will want to dig deeper into God's Word. Get a Bible dictionary, commentary and study books and start making an effort to get at the historical, spiritual, and applicable meanings behind passages you read.

4) Memorize The Word - Practice, practice, practice. Start with a verse a week. Say it, sing it, shout it, tell it to a friend, write it down, tack it up on the Wall, or put it on sticky notes. The point is pick a scripture and learn it. It will be used of God in the future to help you or someone you meet.

5) Meditate On The Word - This is simply making the Word personal. Talk to God about what you are reading in the Word. Focus on a passage and pray it back to God. Talk to Him about what you hear Him saying in the Word. This is very fun and exciting.

6) Apply The Word - Take God's Word and use it in your daily life. Love, live, and be what you are reading.

7) Share The Word - Tell others about what God says in His Word. He loves them and has a wonderful plan for their lives.

Remember - The Word of God when it is mastered:

It is your Authority for all that you do.
It is your Tool to help others and yourself find the true meaning of life.
It is your Sword to defeat the enemy.
It is used by the Holy Spirit to Bring God's revealed Word and will to a situation.

When you take these seven steps to mastering God's Word you begin a lifelong journey that ultimately is completed in Heaven where everything about our lives and the will of God will be revealed!

Our Vision For The Future

Our Vision For The Future by Keith Cook

In Proverbs 29:18 the Bible says, "where there is NO VISION ... People PERISH"

As you are reading this over two billion have not heard about the love of Jesus.  Over 150,000 people a day die without Christ!

Now is the time for all Christians not to hide in fear, but to loudly celebrate, lovingly care, laboriously cultivate, and longingly communicate our faith.

We should Loudly Celebrate and rejoice in the Life we have in Christ.

We can Lovingly Care for every person on the planet.

We must Laboriously Cultivate friendships and relationships that God can divinely use for the Kingdom and cultivate our own knowledge of the Word and Ways of God.

We must Longingly Communicate the love of Christ to the whole World.

Have A Vision Beyond Today - "He who aims at nothing usually hits it!"

A VISION is a Revelation of the definite will of God.

Absence of a vision results in people who will

1. Perish
2. Run wild
3. Live unrestrained
4. Rebel
5. Be Idle
6. Play

Sounds like America and the World we live in!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for Vision!

Embrace The Future

Embrace The Future by Keith Cook

"Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:" Romans 3:22-24

We also need to embrace the future. Embrace it. If you haven't figured it out by now, I have formed an acrostic of the word future.

Face the future
Unaffected by the future
Trust in God for the future
Unwise not to consider your future
Reaping and sowing for the future
Embrace the future

You can personally embrace the future.

"I have hope in Him. Therefore, the Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him it is good that he wait silently for the salvation of the Lord. It is good for a man that he should bear the yoke in his youth." Lamentations 3:24-27

The Bible is basically talking about embracing the Lord and trusting Him for your future happiness and peace. Right now you can do something that can affect how you will embrace and face your future. God's Word tells you how to begin to embrace your future right now!

Look In

Begin by taking a realistic look in. Right now the Lord would have you look into your future and decide if you are prepared.

When you look inside your heart of hearts, if you don't have Jesus inside, it doesn't matter what goes on on the outside.  Your future is not secure.

When you look inside yourself, you should know if you are really His! The Bible says His Spirit bears witness with our spirit whether or not we are of Christ.

You can have Jesus living in you in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is as simple as taking these three steps.

Step 1. Admit that you are a sinner and that you are sorry for your sins. The Bible says in 1 John 1:8, 9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Step 2. Believe the truth about God and His love for you in Christ. God sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for you and to pay the penalty of your sin. He willingly gave up His life to give you life with God. He loves you and wants to be your God.

Step 3. Call on the name of the Lord in prayer asking Christ to come be your Savior. You can pray right now. The Bible says in Romans 10:13, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Why not pray right now and really prepare for your future. Here is a simple prayer that can represent the desire of your heart.

Dear God, I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I am sorry for my sin. Jesus, you died on the cross for me. I believe in you and ask you to come be my Savior and God. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. By your power I will live for you. I love you and thank you. In Jesus name, Amen.

(If you prayed that prayer we would love to send you some information on how to live the Christian life. Please call, email or write us. God bless you and welcome to the family of God.)

When you know for sure that all is right between you and God then He wants you to embrace your future.

He wants us to embrace Him because He said, "I am the same yesterday, today, and forever."

Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life." In other words, He is our future, He is our past, and He is our present. Embrace it.

Look in, are you prepared? That means have you come to Christ? Have you settled it with Christ? Have you made everything in your life that concerns your spiritual life complete? God can help you make it plain, simple and precise!

Some of us try to make our faith difficult. It's basically this, do you love God? Are you doing what He says? Embrace Him, look inside.

Look Out

You also need to look out when you embrace the future. What is your part in what's going on in the future? What would God have you do? What is God calling you to do? There are many opportunities for Christian service all around you. You can begin serving God right in your own neighborhood. You can volunteer with a Christian ministry. God may lead you to participate on a short term mission project. He may lead you to help with some of the ministries at your local church. The possibilities are endless.

If you would like more information on what you can do to serve God you can call our office or even send us a letter or e-mail requesting information on what you can do to make a difference for Christ. We would love to help you become "On The Go" for Jesus.

Look Up

Embrace the future, look out at what God has for you to do for Him and then look up. Look up to the Lord, He is there.

Tomorrow when you wake up and you're still here, and no terrorist has blown up your world, then you have a decision to make. If you're still breathing, and your family is safe, when tomorrow comes, you are going to have to go on to the next day, and then to the next, and the next.  This will go on and on until Jesus comes to take you home or you pass from this life to the next.

Your future is bright! It is as bright as the promises of God. God says, "I'm here for you, I'm ready for you. I will take you into the future. I will take you beyond tomorrow." There is something beyond the right now. It's called Heaven and it's prepared for those who know Him.

Your future is secure if your future is in Him. So cheer up, you can get out of here and end up in Heaven whenever He wants you. But until He wants you, He is with you.

So, what can befall you that doesn't first come through the blood and through our Lord Jesus Christ. If God be for you, who can be against you? What does your future hold? According to God - More opportunities! More open doors! More trials and more obstacles! More opportunities to see that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

Daily Prayer Focus: Are you ready for your future? Ask Jesus to give you a future with Him. Make sure your future is in Him!

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.

The Importance of Reaping And Sowing in Our Future

The Importance of Reaping And Sowing in Our Future by Keith Cook

Earlier this month we have looked at how we can sow love, stability, faith, hope, and peace into people's lives. In the past few days we have talked a lot about facing the future and making our lives count for Christ. Today, let's look at two other ways that we can sow fruit for God's Glory and at the same time make an impact on the future.

1. We should sow Blessings - We all have been blessed of God to be a blessing. God could take all of us to Heaven after conversion if we had nothing else to do in this life. But He does not take us; instead He sends us, into the highways and byways, searching for those that He would have us minister to in His name.

2. We can sow Eternity - The most eternal thing you can do is to sow into someone's life the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When you take a risk and share the love of Jesus you have given someone more than stability or blessing you have given them a future life in Heaven. Our future will eventually bring all of us to eternity in either Heaven or Hell. This will happen to everyone. Sow Eternity.

Each of us needs to sow greatly and we will reap a reward from God.

What have you sown this past week?

What have you sown into Christ's service lately?

What have you sown into other people's lives?

What have you done that matters?

Not too long ago I received an offering in the mail from someone that I knew did not have a great deal of money. I also knew that they wanted to do something that counted for Christ and I felt in my spirit that the Lord was going to bless them. Not because of their gift to us, but because of their obedience to God. They had listened to the Lord and met someone's need.

Not too long after receiving the gift I received confirmation from them that God had moved mightily in their family and answered a prayer they had been praying for quite some time. God had blessed them and they were praising Him.

God wants us to start sowing into people's lives, not just monetarily. Money is so minute. There are people around your life who need so much more than money. They need understanding, they need compassion, and they need someone to encourage them.

Most of us are in so deep; money won't help us right now. You know what I mean! We need a way out. We need a way through. We need a way around, and it only comes from Christ. We can sow for Him.

Daily Prayer Focus: Who could you bless or bring Jesus to today? Take every moment to bless and share Christ this week.

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.

Unwise Not To Consider Our Future

Unwise Not To Consider Our Future by Keith Cook

"Her uncleanness was in her skirts; She did not consider her future. Therefore she has fallen astonishingly; She has no comforter.' See, O LORD, my affliction, For the enemy has magnified himself!'" Lamenations 1:9 (NASB)

Over the past few days we have looked at facing the future, how the future is unaffected by our culture, our economy, terrorists, or our calamities and how we are supposed to trust the Lord. In Lamentations, chapter one the Bible says, "she had not considered her future." It is unwise to not consider the future when looking directly at it.

Now let's look at Jerusalem and some of the things that happened to Jerusalem when she didn't consider the future. The first thing was Jerusalem fell. She actually physically and spiritually fell.

Now if America does not consider her future, we are going to fall. If we continue to elect men and women who have no backbone, no character, who have no faith, we are going to fall.

If we continue as a public to endorse lifestyle, habits, entertainment and things of pleasure that have no glory, no profit, or no good value in them, we are going to fall. If we are going to continue to train ourselves and to train our children that money is all there is, and that's all there is to life, we are going to fall.

A few years ago our home was affected by an ice storm. We were not ready for it. We were on the road holding crusades and when we finally we home we had no electricity. I don't even think we had a can of tomato soup in our cupboard and could not have opened it even if we had because our can opener was electric.

We decided right then and there we were going to get a generator, just for normal calamities and things that could happen. We wanted to be prepared for future calamities and to consider the future.

Now I have an emergency plan that includes canned goods, water, and supplies. Our ministry now has a benevolence program and we have a truckload of food. We're not storing it up for ourselves. God says that we are supposed to consider our future and the future of others because we are all connected. What we do affects others. We are storing up supplies for others and are prepared to help all who are having needs in our area. We have no magic "Get out of Calamity" card. But we do have God's word and His assurance we are going to be able to withstand all that comes or we will be standing with Him in Heaven. Either way, we win!

Sin

It is a sin not to consider your future. Jerusalem did not consider her future and it led her into sin.

Comfortless

In Jerusalem there also was no comfort. Day after day the people were forced to work under taskmasters and were led astray by the folly of their sin. When they forgot their future there was no comfort. They forgot all the promises of God and walked by the conditions they had around them. They let their environment and the wisdom of the day rob them of their comfort from God's word and His way.

Spiritless

The Spirit was not allowed to work in Jerusalem. When people deny the power of God and do not let the Spirit move there is no hope or future. They forgot that God holds the future, not armies or Kings. Working things out in the natural became Jerusalem's strategy. They forsook the Lord.

The same is true today. When sin is rampant and we find no comfort, then we have a condition where we often deny the Spirit of God and His leading and direction.

If you don't consider your future you too may end up like Jerusalem. Jerusalem would not allow the Spirit of God to move and work. They would not look to God's provision, promises or protection.

Sometimes when we look at the future, or we choose not to look at the future, we are basically saying we like things the way they are. We don't want to change. We don't want to do anything different, and we are not going to let the Spirit of God move.

Now I'm not talking about something freaky, I'm talking about something faithful. I'm not talking about something foolish, I'm talking about something God has foreordained before the foundation of the world. God wants to work in His church. He wants to work in our culture. He wants to work in your heart. He wants to work in your family, your job, your situation and your children. He wants to work with what you have and what you have been given. God says it is a sin and it is unwise not to look at your future. Now I believe God wants us to look at the future and He doesn't want us to fall.

Precious Things Affected

The Bible says that Jerusalem also had problems with their enemies and their enemies continued to grow and would not go away. Boy, does that sound familiar. When you don't look at your future then precious things are affected by the enemy. Hold something precious close to you. Touch something precious in your room or home. The Bible says that the precious things in Jerusalem were affected because Jerusalem, the culture, and the leaders did not consider the future. All they did was work for today. Don't do that.

Joan and I not long ago decided we were going to invest our lives in younger leaders. We decided we were just going to pour out everything we had to train up a generation who can do what we do, which is evangelism.

It has cost us. We could be going around the world in style. If we didn't care about training people, helping people, and considering the future, we could be traveling across America making $5,000 an event teaching seminars on how you could feel good about yourself.

That's not what God said for us to do. He said consider the future because people are precious and they are falling away and becoming affected by the sins of this world.

Don't allow the future and our culture to affect what's precious to you. Right now God is calling us to decide what is really precious to us. Hold on to that which is holy and which God has given.

There are four things which God has given me.

He has given me a wife
He has given me a son
He has given me friends
He has given me the world

I consider them precious! God tells us to. We can't neglect them because precious things are affected by the enemy.

Worldliness

Again, in Lamentations, the Bible says that the shame about not considering your future is that worldliness enters into your religion. What does that mean? It means that God is not allowed to do what God wants to do because we have worldliness in the church.

In order to understand worldliness in the church, we need to understand our world.

Our world is a Dark World full of evil, violence, drugs, sex and abuse. Evil gets more vocal and front page all the time. Once we are shocked often enough we then become complacent and use to the abnormal and profane.

Our world is also a very vocal Third World full of hungry, needy, and emerging people. Because of past neglect and abuse many of the under capitalized nations of the world are bitter and angry.

Our world also includes an Old World full of the status quo. With people looking for security and safety. The have become very traditional and nationalistic. Often they have outdated time warped solutions to new and modern problems.

Our world includes a Disney World of fantasy and childish unrealistic expectations. Children and adults are allowed to live out of control with no absolutes and no moral compass.

There are some in our world who are Out of this World. Computers and technology is pulling us into the new millennium faster than most want to go. The future is here now.

Our world now is a Global World. We are now all connected through the economy, politically and ideologically.

The modern church thinks that they have special insulation from worldliness. They have it all figured out. You know some of us even think we can escape worldliness. We have got God figured out and we have put God in a God box. We go to God when the forest is on fire or when times start getting tough. But, oh that we would let Christ in our religion and we would allow the Holy Spirit of God to move in our hearts and take hold of every area of our lives.

Daily Prayer Focus: Ask the Lord what He has given you. What precious things do you have in your life? Commit them to Christ. Be wise and consider how your actions going into the future affect them. Give every area of your life to Jesus and let Him take care of your precious things.

On The Go Prayer Focus: All the local churches, committees, and leaders who will be working with On The Go Ministries and the Keith Cook Team in creative outreach efforts in the United States and around the world.

Unaffected Future

Unaffected Future by Keith Cook

"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him." Lamentations 3:22-24

Yesterday we began looking at key elements to consider in looking at our future. Each of these elements can lead you into great pain or great joy and excitement.

We began with "Face The Future". Now let us go on with our look at the future.

Unaffected Future

The second thing about the future is not only do we have to face the future, but we have to see that the future is unaffected by our culture, our economy, or any calamity.

Jesus said, "I Am."

What did He say? He said, "I am the same!" Wow!

In today's scripture reading, we read that the Lord is my portion. The Lord is my portion; therefore, I have hope in the economy? Oh, wait a minute that's not what it says.

I have hope in the Air National Guard? Whoa!

I have hope in the Civil Defense?

I have hope in the stockpile of food in the basement?

That's not what it says! It says "The Lord is my portion; therefore, I have my hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him. To the person who seeks Him."

Waiting and Seeking God In Our Future

Waiting and seeking are very hard for most of us to do. How can you wait on God and seek Him at the same time? How you can rest and work at the same time? How you can walk by faith and sit back and trust Him in faith?

One key to understanding this principle is to understand it is an attitude of faith and trust. We are seeking the Lord and we are waiting upon Him. We are doing all He has given us to do; yet we are trusting in Him to do all that only He can do.

God says we are supposed to face our future and our future is unaffected by our culture, the economy, international terrorists, or any calamity. Let's put our trust, faith, and hope in Him. Truly, He is our portion.

Trust In God For The Future

In Lamentations 5:19 the Word of God says, "Thou O Lord dost rule forever."

This is very important. It says, "The Lord dost rule forever; your throne is from generation to generation. Why do You forget us forever? Why do You forsake us so long? Restore us to You, O LORD, that we may be restored; renew our days as of old."

The Bible says that God really rules the church. We may feel rejected. We may feel pain. We may feel like we don't know what's coming around the corner but God does!

Beyond Today, There Is Jesus!

No matter if a terrorist strikes our city or if the power goes off for a week, Jesus is still there. If all of us are reduced to just eating beans, O please God, don't let that happen to us, we still have our Father. But if that's all we have, then that's all we have. We still have Him. God says trust in Me for your future. He said, face the future and trust God in your future. Remember, beyond today there is Jesus.

Daily Prayer Focus: Focus on Jesus today. Put your future in His hands!
