II Samuel 24:24 “And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt-offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.”
Speaking from first hand experience, Adoniram Judson said:
“There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice it is because someone has suffered before you. If you sacrifice without success it is because someone will succeed afterwards.”
Things that are valuable and precious come at a cost. So it is with our money and with our ministry. As Christians prayerfully and faithfully serve the Lord in today’s America, we may be sacrificing without apparent success. Dismay not! The price you are paying is valuable to God; the sacrifice you are offering is precious to Him. Moreover, that suffering and sacrifice is paving the way for success even if that success exceeds our limited perspective.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO WILLINGLY SACRIFICE, PAVING THE WAY FOR ETERNAL SUCCESS. Nationwide repentance and revival is going to come at a cost. We must be willing to pay its price.
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (by a land that is diminishing the value of life, from its beginning to its end), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
