Stay in the Race!
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)


Your ongoing trial may involve physical suffering, unemployment, children who rebel, faithless friends, mental distress, turmoil or pain. As you endure day after day, Satan will whisper to you as he did to Job: "The righteous don't suffer. If God heard you — if he saved you and his promises are true — you should have been rescued immediately. Where is your God? Is this what faith gets you?"

Beloved, do not cast your faith aside! Satan is a liar. You are enduring hardship because God loves you, because he cares. Think about it: You asked the Lord to make you more like him. Only he knows what that will require. He knows your suffering, and he won't let you be destroyed by it. In fact, he knows just when to make a way of escape for you. He won't act until that appointed time, and "will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Be assured, God has everything under control. The pain, the lingering sickness, the prayers that seem to go unanswered — he knows all about them. And he knows why he hasn't lifted your trial before now. As happened with Paul, he is using the "thorn in your flesh” to work toward your blessing. Indeed, the very thing you want so much — the answer you believe is so necessary — might be something God knows is not best for you. If he ultimately says, "No," you know he is preserving your soul and answering you in a much better way.

Through it all, the great cloud of witnesses urges you, "Continue fighting the battle with faith. Stay in the race!"

Consider this powerful word from the author of Hebrews: "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry (Hebrews 10:35-37).

But I Kept the Faith
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)


Paul kept his faith through good times and bad.

In his final days Paul could boast, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7). Think about Paul's testimony at that point. He could say, "Satan sent messengers to fight me in Jerusalem, Damascus, Asia, Ephesus, Antioch, and Corinth. But I kept the faith.

"He tried to sink me in the storm-tossed Mediterranean. Three times I was shipwrecked, bobbing in the deep, night and day. But I kept the faith.

"Five times the Jews beat me with thirty-nine stripes. I have been cast into prison, three times beaten with rods, stoned and left for dead. But I kept the faith.

"I've faced peril in the country and the city, in the wilderness and the sea. I've been robbed by my own countrymen. I've been placed in peril by false brethren. But I kept the faith.

"I've been extremely weary at times, full of bodily pains, enduring sleepless nights. I've been hungry and thirsty, cold and naked, heavily laden with cares of all kinds. Yet I kept the faith.

"I've been troubled, perplexed on every side, distressed and persecuted, but never cast down. I've never been shaken in my faith. Through it all, my trust in the Lord has never been destroyed" (see 2 Corinthians 11:23-28).

Beloved don’t fall for the devil's lies when you are enduring trials, chastening or troubles. Do not allow a root of bitterness to enter your heart and begin nurturing anger toward God: "Why did the Lord allow this? I tried so hard to please him, trusting him so much. Why is he letting me down?" God has warned us about such times: "Don't let this happen. Instead, be diligent, be careful, holding onto your confidence. It has great recompense of reward." (Hebrews 10:35-36, my paraphrase)

Rather remember that he says for us to "Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me" (Psalms 50:15). May you remain faithful to call on him in your trial. Cast your cares on him always!

Ambassadors for Christ
Gary Wilkerson


“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:20).

Becoming “an ambassador for Christ” is not something we are striving to attain. If you are a Christian, you are a missionary. This does not just mean being sent overseas or going on outreaches. This mission we are on consists of possessing a heart that loves Him in such a way that we want to see others come to know that love as well.

Let me take a different slant on it and tell you it’s not just about being sent; it’s not just about reaching out to your neighbors. It’s about what type of missionary you are.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves” (Matthew 23:15).

Jesus is saying here, “You go from one place to another trying to get one convert, one proselyte, and when you do get that one, they’re a worse person than you are.” Clearly that is not healthy evangelism!

So the mission I’m talking to you about today is not just what we say or what charity we are involved in or where we go. Our focus must be on who we are. You are a missionary to your mom and dad. You are a missionary to your children. You are a missionary to your spouse. You are a missionary to your neighbor.

The type of life that you live, the type of heart that you have, the type of gospel that you live out — whether it’s powerful, penetrating your own soul to change you to the degree that you are transformed — will be the very degree to which you can change and transform the world around you.
Love to you all

The Full Assurance of Faith

Heb 10:19 We have, then, my friends, complete freedom to go into the Most Holy Place by means of the death of Jesus.
Heb 10:20 He opened for us a new way, a living way, through the curtain---that is, through his own body.
Heb 10:21 We have a great priest in charge of the house of God.
Heb 10:22 So let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, with hearts that have been purified from a guilty conscience and with bodies washed with clean water.
Heb 10:23 Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, because we can trust God to keep his promise.
Heb 10:24 Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good.
Heb 10:25 Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more, since you see that the Day of the Lord is coming nearer.
Heb 10:26 For there is no longer any sacrifice that will take away sins if we purposely go on sinning after the truth has been made known to us.
Heb 10:27 Instead, all that is left is to wait in fear for the coming Judgment and the fierce fire which will destroy those who oppose God!
Heb 10:28 Anyone who disobeys the Law of Moses is put to death without any mercy when judged guilty from the evidence of two or more witnesses.
Heb 10:29 What, then, of those who despise the Son of God? who treat as a cheap thing the blood of God's covenant which purified them from sin? who insult the Spirit of grace? Just think how much worse is the punishment they will deserve!
Heb 10:30 For we know who said, "I will take revenge, I will repay"; and who also said, "The Lord will judge his people."
Heb 10:31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
Heb 10:32 Remember how it was with you in the past. In those days, after God's light had shone on you, you suffered many things, yet were not defeated by the struggle.
Heb 10:33 You were at times publicly insulted and mistreated, and at other times you were ready to join those who were being treated in this way.
Heb 10:34 You shared the sufferings of prisoners, and when all your belongings were seized, you endured your loss gladly, because you knew that you still possessed something much better, which would last forever.
Heb 10:35 Do not lose your courage, then, because it brings with it a great reward.
Heb 10:36 You need to be patient, in order to do the will of God and receive what he promises.
Heb 10:37 For, as the scripture says, "Just a little while longer, and he who is coming will come; he will not delay.
Heb 10:38 My righteous people, however, will believe and live; but if any of them turns back, I will not be pleased with them."
Heb 10:39 We are not people who turn back and are lost. Instead, we have faith and are saved.

God's Way
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)


Troubling circumstances and fiery conditions can bring on confusion. At such times, our impatience begins to reason: "God must not have meant what he said to me. Or maybe the problem is my inability to hear his voice. Perhaps I heard him wrong in the first place. All I know is that what he told me and what I see developing don't add up."

When Saul moved ahead of God’s direction, he acted purely on logic and reason, not on trust. Listen to the string of excuses he gave the prophet Samuel for moving ahead of God's direction: "When I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that you did not come within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered together at Michmash, then I said, ‘The Philistines will now come down on me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication to the Lord.’ Therefore I felt compelled, and offered a burnt offering" (1 Samuel 13:11-12). Saul took matters into his own hands, doing what he reasoned was his only option. And it ended in sorrow.

This matter of waiting is so important that we find references to it throughout God's Word. Isaiah writes, "It will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation" (Isaiah 25:9).

"For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him” (Isaiah 64:4).

Beloved, God's way is not the world's way. And the only way to gain godly experience is to wait patiently for him in faith. This sort of godly experience comes to those who are in communion with the Lord: "Knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope" (Romans 5:3-4).

How Can We Be Silent?
Nicky Cruz


God saved me by appealing to my heart. As my faith and devotion to him grew, he began to impart knowledge and insight, an understanding of his ways, a desire to study and learn and grow even deeper in his wisdom. It’s a process of mentoring and maturing, one that will continue until the day I die, but it began with an appeal to my emotions, not my intellect.

I grew up in a family that knew nothing about Jesus. My mother and father were children of the darkness, immersed in a lifestyle of the occult, blinded to the light of Jesus’ wonderful grace. I vividly remember my mother’s eyes. They were cold and dark and empty. Emotionless eyes. There was nothing there: no love, no feeling, no compassion . . . nothing but blackness. Looking into her face was like staring into the pit of hell. At times I felt as if Satan himself was staring back at me through the barren, vacant eyes of my mother.

By the grace of God I was later able to lead my mother and father to the Lord. She became a powerful witness to God’s wonderful forgiveness, and for the first time I was able to look into her eyes and see the love and compassion that I had always longed for. The emptiness was gone, and in its place was pure beauty, a soul freed from hate and despair. She was a child of freedom.

How can we ever again be silent when we’ve witnessed the miraculous transformation of a soul set free from Satan’s grip? Once we’ve seen what Jesus can do in and through a life devoted to his will, we become forever changed. We begin longing for all the wisdom and empowerment that the Holy Spirit offers. We can’t stop ourselves from pleading on behalf of the lost, yearning to reach them with God’s message.

Moravian Daily Texts

Watchword for the Week — The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. Psalm 118:22,23

Isaiah 5:1–7; Psalm 80:7–15
Philippians 3:4b–14; Matthew 21:33–46

Hate evil and love good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts, will be gracious. Amos 5:15

Paul wrote: You must rid yourselves of all such things—anger, rage, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices. Colossians 3:8–9

Ever-loving God, we thank you for creating us anew. Give us your power and strength to allow your Holy Spirit to complete the work you started in us by ridding ourselves of what displeases you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Grace Sufficient for You
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)


Scripture says of Moses' time: "Forty years You sustained them in the wilderness; they lacked nothing; their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell. . . . [They] delighted themselves in Your great goodness" (Nehemiah 9:21, 25).

Do you delight in the Lord's goodness to you? Perhaps you are more likely to whisper within your heart, "God hasn't been good to me. So many things in my life have been left hanging. My prayers aren't being answered."

If God could take three million Israelites through the wilderness safely, do you doubt he can take care of you? You may marvel at the way he protected and provided for Israel but when you look at your own life, you say, "Poor me."

Israel was never convinced they would have all their needs supplied by trusting in God completely. In that respect, they were not a holy people. On the contrary, they were disobedient, impudent and idolatrous. At one point, Moses even told them, "Ever since I've known you, you've been bent on backsliding."

Yet when those same Israelites called out to God, he came and answered their cry. He had mercy on them. Tell me, will the Lord not answer us who have left our idolatry behind and pursued him passionately?

Maybe you find it hard to believe that. Deep down, you aren't convinced God has everything you need and will supply it. You accuse him of having all power and authority to provide for you but that he hides it from you.

It doesn't matter what your problem is or how confusing the maze you're navigating at present. If you will wait faithfully on Jesus, he will give you wisdom, knowledge and grace sufficient for your trial. He has always made a way for those who trust in him fully. And he will do it for you.

Oh this is sooo true as He has always provided for me in my time of trials, especially with me having MS. I'll have to say though I am still lacking in the wisdom and knowledge department, this being my own fault.

“You Have Known Me”
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)


The Lord asks us, "Do you truly believe I see exactly what you are enduring right now?"

Perhaps as you read this message, you are going through something that calls for him to act on your behalf. The very nature of your problem demands an answer.

Do you believe God gladly monitors your every move, the way a father does with his infant child? Do you believe he is at work as your loving, caring Father — bottling every tear, hearing every sigh, hovering over you?

That is exactly the way the Bible describes him. "The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. . . . The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles" (Psalm 34:15, 17).

"As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him" (Psalm 103:13).

The Hebrew word for pity here means "to cuddle, love, be compassionate." Scripture is saying God cuddles in his arms those who fear (believe) him. And he tells you, "I know all your thoughts, all your concerns. I know every battle you must face. And I care about it all."

David wrote a famous passage about this very subject: "O Lord, You have . . . known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off; You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether” (Psalm 139:1-4).

"How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand" (139:17–18).

David is saying, "God knows all about me. He sees my every move, even my thoughts. Everywhere I turn, there he is."

Without Power

I love to look at the buildings of Manhattan, especially at night when the lights are all on. It is an amazing sight to see all of those buildings filled with people, activities, and ideas at work, and to know that what is hatched there will not only affect New York City but the entire world. However, regardless of how influential New York City and its people can be, if you take away the electrical power—which happens occasionally during a blackout—the whole thing shuts down. The office buildings become useless, the activity ceases, and the ideas die in the darkness. Without power, all that potential is wasted.

The same is true for us believers. If we don’t have access to spiritual power, how can we accomplish what needs to be done? Power to overcome sin. Power to overcome spiritual enemies that attack us. Power to endure hardship and affliction. Power to speak. Power to pray. Power to witness. Isn’t more spiritual power probably the greatest need we have today?

It’s interesting that the risen Christ’s final words before his ascension concerned spiritual power. “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). It was as if Jesus looked down the corridors of time and knew that even having the right gospel message would not be enough. We would face so many such obstacles from satanic strongholds that we would never evangelize the world effectively without the power that only the Spirit can impart.

Hearing and Doing the Word (GNB)

Jas 1:19 Remember this, my dear friends! Everyone must be quick to listen, but slow to speak and slow to become angry.
Jas 1:20 Human anger does not achieve God's righteous purpose.
Jas 1:21 So get rid of every filthy habit and all wicked conduct. Submit to God and accept the word that he plants in your hearts, which is able to save you.
Jas 1:22 Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice.
Jas 1:23 If you listen to the word, but do not put it into practice you are like people who look in a mirror and see themselves as they are.
Jas 1:24 They take a good look at themselves and then go away and at once forget what they look like.
Jas 1:25 But if you look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, and keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice---you will be blessed by God in what you do.
Jas 1:26 Do any of you think you are religious? If you do not control your tongue, your religion is worthless and you deceive yourself.
Jas 1:27 What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world.

Keep Your Heart Open
Gary Wilkerson


“Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city” (Proverbs 16:32).

Isn’t that interesting? We want to give our life to the Gospel and to the mission field but unless we mature and grow and feed our own heart and soul, then taking a city is going to be just that — taking a city. And there will be a city full of miserable, frustrated, discouraged, depressed people.

Taking a city for the kingdom of God actually means having a heart so full of the joy of the Lord that we are moved to the next direction. So this means we must tend our own heart, watch and manage “our own city.”

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23).

Do you see what it says here? All the things of life flow from the heart. Most of us as believers strive to get these things but they have already been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Peter says that Jesus “has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3).

We teach that the New Covenant of the cross of Jesus Christ is a finished work. All the peace and joy he is ever going to give you has already been given to you.

When you’re in pain and feel depressed and discouraged, you say that you don’t want to feel these things. But when you shut down the bad parts of your heart, the painful parts, you also shut down the good parts.

So keep your heart open and ask the Holy Spirit to help you deal with the pain in your life. Don’t run from it. Don’t hide from it. Tend your own vineyard — deal with the issues. But remember, all this takes time, so don’t become impatient as you allow the Holy Spirit to do his work.
