Kanaan Message for Today



God sends you a cross because, as a Father, He has to discipline and refine you. Now He is waiting for your response. Will you respond to the Father like a child? Will He hear you say: ‘I want my cross. It comes from Your hands. You gave it to me, and if You do not want to take it away, I will accept it as a gift from You’? Believe that this act of dedication has power before the invisible world. Satan, who hates the cross, will flee from you, while Jesus, who humbly carried the cross, will draw near to you. Filled with joy, He will take you in His arms. In you He has found a true disciple, one who has obeyed His command: ‘If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.’ You have comforted the heart of Jesus and the Father. (Matthew 16:24)
