From Jon Courson

It was in 1972 that the last Imperial Japanese soldier was discovered on a South Sea island. Because he was living in complete isolation, he hadn’t heard the news that World War II was over. So there he was-still building fortifications, ready to hold off the American invasion of his little atoll.

“What a waste,” you say. “He could have been enjoying the Japanese economic boom, but instead he was stuck on an island, fighting malaria-all because he didn’t hear that a peace treaty had been signed.”

Yet, it’s amazing how many of us do the same thing. I hope the Lord doesn’t come down on me for this, or get mad at me for that, we think. He must be really upset with me. I better hide here in the jungle. We don’t get it! The war is over! We have peace with God.


The story is told that a young boy cried outside Buckingham Palace after a beefeater refused his request to talk to the Queen. Twenty-year-old Prince Charles, observing the scene, approached the boy, took him by the hand, and said, “Come on, son. If you want to talk to the Queen, come with me.”

So, too, we can talk to the King continually when we take the hand of the Son.


The Seventeen-Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula is world famous for the beautiful cypress trees that abound in that region. These cypress trees are photographed, painted, and sculpted by artists from all over the world. The beauty of the cypress tree is due to the wind that blows them constantly. And the wind that produces their outer beauty also develops their inner strength. You see, the root system of the cypress tree sinks proportionately deeper than that of any other tree in the state.

“Lord, I want to be an object of beauty,” we say. “All right,” He says-and proceeds to send winds of adversity to make us beautiful; not to sink us, but to strengthen us. The cold winds of adversity, the hot winds of tribulation cause us to sink our root systems deeper in the soil of Scripture, to ground and root us in faith.
