We Are Winning

We Are Winning by Keith Cook

"...a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb..." Revelation 7:9

Just the other day, I read that Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world. Our faith is gaining converts faster than the population is growing. The ratio of non-Christians to professing Christians is now 6.8 to 1.

Way back in A.D. 100 there were 360 non-Christians for every believer. In the year 1000 A.D. it was down to 220 to 1. When you reach the 1500's the ratio had dropped to 69 to 1 and by the 1900s it was down to 27 to 1.

During the Bible boom of the 1950's, the statistics showed the gap narrow to 21 non-believers for every Christian and by 1980 it had dropped to 11 to 1. Today the numbers indicate a 6.8 to 1 ratio. (Lausanne Statistic Task Force)

The church in Africa is growing faster than the population. The largest churches in the world are outside the U.S.A. and Europe.

According to church historians more Muslims have come to Christ in the last 25 years than all previous centuries combined.

In Africa and Asia well over 1,000 new churches are started each week.

When you look at the facts concerning the modern outreach movement, you will quickly see the wave of the future is in team evangelism with a focus on short term projects and outreaches. What is needed today is partnership evangelism and team ministries that compliment each other. Evangelist are needed to help win the world for Christ and motivate the church to be on the go for Jesus.

It is estimated that there are over 2.7 million evangelical congregations worldwide. The ratio of local congregations to unreached (16,000) people groups is 156 to one. We actually could see teams going to each group any day now! It is possible!

Now be reminded of, "When the Wind of God Blows the Sails of Preparation must be UP!" (BGEA)

The wind of God is blowing!

Are we up to the task of being driven by the Holy Spirit to do whatever God leads us to do? It is time to burn all the bridges and launch out into the deep waters with Jesus!

In today's scripture passage, we see a true picture of the completed church. It takes real evangelists to make this picture a reality!

Daily Prayer Focus: Join in Christ's march to victory. Do not be discouraged by the news or the efforts of the Devil to stop the work of Christ. Rejoice today in Christ your Savior.

Wisdom From Above

Wisdom From Above by Keith Cook

"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy." James 3:13,17

I do not know very many people that would say they do not want to be wise. The wisdom that we as Christians try to obtain is different than the world's wisdom. You see, the Bible tells us exactly how to be wise! It's hard at times to choose wisdom from above when the world's way is easier.

Wisdom From Above can be Characteristics:

Pure
Peaceable
Gentle
Willing to Yield
Full of Mercy
Full of Good Fruits
Without Partiality
Without Hypocrisy

Folly From Below Yields:

Done from wrong motives
Always warring with others
Harsh
Having to have your own way
Merciless
Fruitless
Judging Others
Being something you're not

Everyday we have a choice to make. We can choose the wisdom from above or the folly from below! Let's choose wisdom!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for God Given Wisdom to Rule in your heart. Pray for wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, merciful, full of fruit, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

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. This weekend Keith and Joan will be hosting an OTS at the Revival Center in Tullahoma, TN. Pray that God will equip and challenge each participant to go to the next level in their service to God and their community.

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: The 30 Minute Radio & Podcast Program "On The Go with Keith Cook". This is a weekly program airing over the internet, short wave, and radio stations.

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.

Today's News - Tomorrows Headlines

Today's News - Tomorrows Headlines by Keith Cook

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord..." 2 Timothy 1:7, 8

Everyday I rush to my computer and check the headlines to see what is going on around the world. Every night before I go to bed I have to channel surf all the news channels to see what is happening in the war on terrorism. It has captivated my heart and mind.

The attack on The World Trade Center, the bombs exploding on buses in Israel, shootings on high school and college campuses, and the sniper shootings in Washington D.C. are vivid reminders that life is short and our future is not guaranteed.

Everywhere I go I see signs that let me know it is not just on my mind, but on everyone else's, as well. At ballgames, shopping malls, at work, and at church, I hear comments of how everyone is concerned with what is around the corner concerning our future. Will there be more war? Will we attack certain countries?  Will the stock market continue to slide? Will our economy suffer? Will our quality of life be affected? Is it safe to let our children out in public? The list goes on and on...

The Bible says, "He has not given us a spirit of fear or timidness." I believe right now that God would have Christians all around the world rally behind the cause of Christ like never before. We need not be afraid of terrorists nor bombs. This is not a time to be afraid of snipers and let their actions stop us from doing what God is calling us to do for Him. Let's not be afraid of what men can do to our bodies, but actually live for the Lord and do great and mighty things for His cause.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you will not let the dangers of this world stop you from serving the Savior of this world!

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook's Hands-On-Training Events. This is our Outreach Training School on the road. Keith and the On The Go Team share all across the USA and Worldwide in fun and creative ways that people can serve Jesus and make an impact in this generation!

GOD WANTS YOU

GOD WANTS YOU by Keith Cook

You can make a difference

"As my Father hath sent me," Jesus said, "even so send I you." John 20:21

You will make a difference and you will see results if you are a God called evangelist and you go at God's time.

My first evangelistic trip to India was very remarkable. I had prayed one night that God would lead me to our next project overseas and India kept coming to my mind. Within days an invitation was received. A local pastor confirmed to us that he too had heard God calling him to covenant with us about the trip.

We believed we had a word from God to go to India. We believed we were prepared to go spiritually, and we had a desire to go. We knew that the need to go was obvious and all we lacked was the finances to go.

We kept on trusting in God for our resources right up until there was only two weeks left before we were to go. My assistant informed me that God had told him to stay at home. One man asked me how I was going to go to India. I told him God would send me. He had told me I would not go because I had no money and needed to stay home and work for a living and earn an honest wage for an honest days work.

When my assistant told me that he was not going I knew this was God's will because there was really nothing for him to do except travel with me.

But when the man told me I would not go because I was trusting God to provide and not working for the money, something very spiritual happened. God spoke to my heart and said "I have called you and this is My timing. I know you have no money and I know you have no way to get any. Trust Me and don't send out any requests for help."

When God told me that, I stopped trying to raise any more funds. I went into a trust mode. Within days I received all the needed funds for my airfare, lodging, food, and crusade expenses from an anonymous donor. Never had that happened before and never has it happened since, but it was God's time for me to go and for Him to show His glory in my situation.

On that Crusade I saw more decisions than any meeting I had ever had. I also personally grew more in love with Christ because I was alone with God. His time is never late or early but always at the appointed time.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you will make a difference this week GOing at God's time.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go Publications & Media Team. We are striving to saturate and minister to a contemporary culture and society through modern media.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

Today's Prayer Focus: Ask God to help you spend five minutes everyday memorizing His Word. It will change every aspect of your life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's "Adopt An Evangelist" program. This program provides funding and support for various missions and evangelists around the world.

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." (https://www.azquotes.com/author/8949-David_Livingstone)

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". (https://www.inspiringquotes.us/author/1679-david-livingstone;  https://www.azquotes.com/author/8949-David_Livingstone)

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.

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: Keith Cook, Joan Cook, the U.S.A. Staff, and On The Go Board of Directors, as they add leadership and direction for the ongoing ministries of the Keith Cook Team and On The Go.

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!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you will begin to master God's Word. Pray that you can apply these seven steps and praise God for the transformation these applications will bring.

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.

"So You've Had A Bad Day"

"So You've Had A Bad Day" by Keith Cook

Everyday I encourage everyone to have a time alone with God. Recently I personally learned once again how important it is to let God speak to you every day.

Recently, I had a very hard day. I had gotten up out of bed and immediately been faced with one crisis after another. I jumped out of sleep into chaos. I had to hurry about my day putting out fires. I whispered a prayer several times through the day just to get through all the hurdles.

It was a horrible day:

One staffer had a flat tire and would not be at work, and another was away on a family emergency.

Someone I was mentoring was falsely ridiculed for being faithful and loyal to their family and for honoring their mother and father.

A festival committee that we had been working with over a year chose to invite another ministry to hold their event.

One long time friend severely hurts me and confounds me with their actions and words.

When I get home, Joan is deep in study. She had gone home early to prepare some notes for our upcoming project. I hate to bother her but need to talk. I replay my day and dump my emotional and spiritual baggage on her.

After dinner Joan retires for bed early and I slip into my easy chair to watch some television. Out of the corner of my eye I glance over and look at a table where Joan and I dump all our loads of books, papers, mail, and junk when we get in to the house. Sitting up on top of the pile is my big black preaching Bible. I hardly ever study or read from this Bible. It is reserved for sermon notes and outlines.

For some strange reason I pause the football game and go over to where the Bible is resting and pick it up. It is like God is inviting me to read a special message from Him.

This is some of what I read:

"The Lord will protect him and keep him alive, "  Psalm 41:2

"Even my close friend, in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me."  Psalm 41:9

"As for me, Thou dost uphold me in my integrity, and Thou dost set me in Thy presence forever."  Psalm 41:12

When I read this chapter it was just as if God was talking straight to me - He knew about the growing fear in my heart for the safety of my team - He knew about the pain I was feeling for being rejected by others and not being allowed to preach in a city I had been praying and working towards - He knew about the friend who was disappointing me. God knew it all. His Word had an answer for every situation I had faced during my day.

God told me several things from these passages. I believe they will speak to you also and that there are principles that each of us can look to for direction on those hard days.

1. God will protect me and He will protect you! At home or on the road I have His protection. God is so good to let me know - in advance - that I, and my team, are going to be safe traveling in and out of Pakistan. I just know that this is a personal word to me. This is not a horoscope - it is the Word of God. I can count on His protection.

This is not a guarantee that I can chant to assure protection but a promise made from a dad to his son for a specific task. You do not have to agree or see it - it is for me and my walk with God. It is not contrary to the Word of God, His character, His principles. Nor is it presumption - it is faith in the revealed Word spoken to my heart.

2. God alone gives life and takes it away. If I am trusting Him whatever happens to me I can count on it being for my good, and for His glory and in line with His divine plan. I want the Fathers will more than I want my will. When it is my time to leave this life and travel to the next it will be on God's terms not chance, fate, luck, tragedy, or the devil.

3. Even close friends can be wrong and can hurt you. Their actions, advise, and inactions can often sting greater than the fiery darts of the devil. To be hurt by someone you relax with and eat with is the ultimate hurt. You expect your enemies to hurt you but not your friends.

God in a very supernatural way, through His Word, let me know - and He can let you know - that He takes notice and cares about all my troubles. He wants me to know that he can heal my wounded spirit and fix my broken heart. He wants you to know that too. Let God work on that sorrow. Give Him a chance to work before you give up in despair.

4. My only course of action is to go and attack each situation with Integrity.

No complaining, yelling, accusing, and antagonizing co-workers for situations out of their control.

I am to pray for each of my friends and other believers that they can be strong even when they are falsely accused.

I can not react with pride, jealousy, or anger when I am denied a desire of my heart. (I must submit to the local church's authority and trust that they have the mind of Christ when they make a decision)

That means I must forgive my friends who wrong me and bless them with kindness and love, even as Christ loves me when I wrong and disappoint Him.

Fear must not be allowed to cause me to shrink back into mediocre ministry when God has a job for me to do. I am to be His servant.

No matter what my schedule says, how busy I get, how hectic my day - I am to be a man of integrity - I am to live every moment under the direction of the Holy Spirit. I do not have the right or carnal luxury of reacting in the flesh when God has given a divine direction or directive. I must act on the revealed will of God.

What about you? As you read the passages above or as you read you Bible or pray to God today - what is He saying to your heart? You may not get the same inspiration or inclinations that I have received. But, if you dig into His Word you will be given strength to make it through any day.

Thank you for letting me share a very personal and real incident in my life. I thought you might like to hear what God has been speaking to my heart. He knows all our fears, sorrows, opportunities, and plans.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for your pastor, missionaries, evangelists, and others in Christian ministry that as they face spiritual warfare they will stand faithful and not grow weary. Send someone you know a note of encouragement today and let them know that you are praying for them.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Safety In Travel for each On The Go staffer and GoTeam volunteer.

Perfect Peace

Perfect Peace by Laurie McTier

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27 

God has used this verse in my life to be a source of encouragement and renewal. At times when I honestly did not feel that peace was even possible, God brought this verse to my memory and He reminded me that He is Source of our strength, the Author and Finisher of our faith, our Comforter, and our Peace.

When I think of these verses my mind immediately races back to 1993. This was a year of great transition and maturity. I had just graduated from nursing school, passed my state board examinations, and was looking to get an apartment of my own. I was working full time in the hospital, and I truly loved my job as I was able to help others in their times of need.

On May 3, 1993, it seemed my whole life came to a screeching halt. I had just finished mowing the yard and was getting ready to go to work when the phone rang. On the other line, my grandfather told me that my dad was in the emergency room and that the family needed to come quick. The news was not good. The doctors found a brain tumor and it was inoperable at that time.

As we drove to the hospital, my mom and my sister and I prayed the entire way. We began praying for God's healing and His grace and understanding of all that was about to occur. In the midst of this crisis, God gave each of us a perfect peace. Peace which I knew could only have come from Him. He assured us that He was right there beside us, He would never leave nor forsake us.

Over the next nine months, our lives completely changed. I was no longer seeking my own personal agendas, but God's will for my life. I began to see each day as a gift from God and an opportunity to serve Him. God brought healing into family relationships and He taught us so many things from His Word. I believe that everyone in my immediate family drew closer to Him, because in the midst of our struggle we had nowhere else to turn. We were driven to our knees as we cried out to Him. Every time we went to God, He gave us new and precious promises from His Word and they each served as great encouragement and strength to endure the road ahead.

As you are reading this devotional thought today, maybe you are going through some of the same struggles as you search for peace, wisdom, and discernment. I encourage you that your Father is just as close as the mention of His name. No matter what valley or crisis experience you are in today, God will not leave you. As His child, He is always right beside you. He promises to go before you and behind you. His grace is sufficient for every need that you have.

My prayer for you today is that God will bring healing and peace to your life. I hope that you will truly come to know God as your Father. He wants you to know that He loves you, and He wants to spend time with you. In every thing give thanks for this is the will of God.  As we spend time giving thanks and sharing with others how He has worked in our lives, our hearts are encouraged and strengthened. No matter what you are struggling with today, God can give you perfect peace, found only as we trust Him, lean on Him, and call upon Him.

Daily Prayer Focus: Praise God for the perfect peace He gives you as you trust Him, lean on Him, and call upon Him.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoCamp ministry that trains believers all over the world how to share their faith.

Set Your Focus For The Future

Set Your Focus For The Future by Keith Cook

Today I would like to give you a simple little exercise that can help you "consider your future" and begin to look at God's vision for your time on earth. God wants us to all march boldly into our future. He wants us to storm the gates of hell and have signs and wonders following all who believe.

I want to send you a simple little tool that we have developed to help you prepare for your future. I will gladly send it to you if you write or email us today. Ask for the "Set Your Focus" booklet. Please use this exercise to find and focus on single words that represent your hopes or observations for each of the following areas of your life or important people in your life.

These are in no way "magic" words or even "divine" observations. They are simply words that represent your honest attempt to focus on your family, friends, life, career and ministry. God can and may use these words to remind you and help you pray and trust God in these areas.

Think and pray about what you write down and then focus on these single words and what they represent for that person or situation.

You may want to work through this exercise monthly or quarterly. Some find it necessary to go over this every year. The main thing is to give God an opportunity to inspire and direct you in these areas.

Try to fill in each applicable area and come back to these words as often as the Lord directs. You will be amazed at how simple it is to complete this exercise and what a blessing you will receive in giving this a special effort.

Reminder: Write in each word that you think of that relates to each area listed in the next section.

Take the time to use this exercise to:

1. Find out who you are - So you can have Peace in your natural man.

2. Know what you believe - So you will feel Secure in your spiritual man.

3. Know where you're going - So you will feel Confident for your Future.

4. Bring others with you - So you will be Used to bring others with you to Heaven.

Daily Prayer Focus: Please do this exercise some time this weekend. I will be praying that you will.

I know this is different but I know this will help you focus on God's will for your life. Email, call or write me with your results. I will pray for you and would love to encourage you in your focus and ministries. 

For your hard copy write us at On The Go, PO Box 963, Springfield, TN 37172, email info@onthego.org,  or you can call us at 615/299-0222.

Generational Vision For The Future

Generational Vision For The Future by Keith Cook

"Do you not say there are yet four months and then comes harvest?  Behold I say to you, Lift Up Your Eyes, and LOOK on the fields, that they are white for harvest." John 4:35

Each new generation needs to hear the message like it has never been preached before.  Right now half of our world is under 25 years of age. They need a new and fresh outpouring of God's love.

Nothing ever built arose to touch the skies unless some man dreamed that it should, believed that it could, and willed that it must.

The Bible states in Jeremiah 29:11, "I know the plans I have for you..." He wants you to have a vision.

1)  You need a vision that crosses national and cultural boundaries.

2)  You need a vision that focuses on the desperate plight of the lost.

3)  You need a vision that moves you to action.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for your generation and your part in reaching everyone in it! This is you time to make a difference.

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.

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.

Record Our Vision For The Future

Record Our Vision For The Future by Keith Cook

"And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it." Habakkuk 2:2

Your VISION:

1. Must be based on Word of God

2. Must be expanded or it can die

3. Is for an appointed time

4. Hastens to goal

5. Will not fail

6. May tarry, but it will come

7. Can be lost if you give up

Could God be calling you to make an impact on those around you? I believe that God is calling out young and old to serve Him in these last days. Write down your call. Make it plain. Share it with your parents, friends, and associates. Dream great dreams, plan great plans, pray great prayers, and do great deeds for God.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for the courage to talk with others about what God is calling you to do. Risk it. Think it out loud. Be bold.

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