Greetings and Grace to All!

A week or so ago, my youngest son Benjamin was interviewed by the local Christian television station here in the Rogue Valley, which had just invited him to begin broadcasting his television program Hope Generation on their station (free of charge!).

I thought the interview was truly stellar.... and I would love you to take it in as well by clicking the link below.

The Dove Interview

And if you can take a look at it, you will hear Ben's heart and vision to reach a whole new generation through the medium of television.

His program, Hope Generation, is now being aired weekly over the the national network World Harvest Television, as well as DirecTV channel 367, Roku and Apple TV.

This venture is both exciting and financially challenging.

Ben is diligently praying for the raising up of some financial supporters who also have a heart to reach a new generation for The Lord, and perhaps some SearchLighter just might feel prompted by the Lord to help in this venture of faith.

If you want to further check out Hope Generation and Hope Generation Television, or if you want to financially assist the television ministry, you can do so via the link below:

Hope Generation

I thank you for even considering this matter, and for any prayers you might be prompted to pray for this exciting new ministry.

I know, as does Ben, that if this is indeed God's vision, then there will be provision provided providentially through people, perhaps like you and me!

I really do believe it is time to see a new generation of Christ-communicators front-and-centered to reach their generation for Jesus.

Well, thank you for letting me share this vision with you all.... and for being so very encouraging and kind to me and this ministry over these many years.

You guys are, simply, the best!!!

Much love to all,

Jon Courson

Daily Devotional
January 19
. . . and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat . . .
Joshua 6:5 (b)
For six days, the congregation of Israel marched around the walls of the city of Jericho. So too, God has you and me go round and round in circles until finally we get dizzy and realize the wall is too high, the breach is too great, the estrangement is too severe. Although we do everything we know how to do, the wall only gets higher. Before there can be a moment of the miraculous, sometimes there must be a lengthy season of helplessness.

When their circling was complete, the Israelites were not to point, not to doubt, but to shout. So too, while I’m waiting for God to flatten the walls in my life, I’m not to wring my hands in anxiety. I’m to clap them in expectancy (Psalm 47:1).

Notice that the Israelites were commanded to shout before the walls fell - not when they fell, not after they fell; the children of Israel shouted before they fell. Thus, theirs was an expression of anticipation, a proclamation of faith.

Let’s join their ranks. Let’s be those who have free access to the heart of all that God has for us as we believe in Him, wait for Him, and submit to Him - for that’s where the walls begin to fall.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
