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 21
And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country.
Joshua 6:26-27
He who tried to rebuild the walls of Jericho would pay a steep price. His oldest and youngest son would die. In 1 Kings 16, we read of a man named Hiel who did this. He rebuilt Jericho - but his oldest and youngest son died in the process.

Maybe you can relate to Joshua and the people of Israel. You’ve been set free from Egypt and baptized in the Spirit. But before you is a wall, a fortress, a barrier between you and someone else that is keeping you from going all the way into the heart of the Land of Promise. As a father, it might be between you and your junior high son. As a mother, it might be between you and your teenage daughter. As a husband or wife, it might be between you and your spouse. As a believer, it might be between you and a brother or sister in the Lord.

If God knocks down a wall between you and another and you say, “Maybe I shouldn’t be so forgiving. Maybe I’m being taken advantage of,” there will be no shortage of people to hand you all the bricks and mortar you need to rebuild the wall. But you’ll pay a terrible price. Don’t undo what God has done. Don’t harden your heart. Don’t let your soul become like concrete. Instead, with the wall flat on the ground, enter into fresh fellowship with the one from whom, by God’s grace and mercy, you are no longer estranged.
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
