“Let the redeemed of the LORD say so” Psalm 107:2
I love this time of year. The weather has changed, the leaves are turning, and we are approaching the holiday season. It’s during this time that I am reminded that I have so much to be thankful for. I know that I am not the only one because I see my friends all across social media posting “Thanksgiving” messages and family photos. This is a great time to pause and think about all the good things in our life. I would venture to say that we all have something for which to be thankful.
The Bible says, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” What are you thankful for today? Take a few moments to thank God that you were able to get out of bed. Are you in good health? Health is one of the greatest gifts you can ever have on this earth. If you are up and moving around today, lift your hands, and praise the Lord. It’s a great day to tell someone you know about God’s goodness and to give Him thanks.
I know that many of our ministry families are going through trials. Our prayer team takes calls from thousands of people every year that need encouragement, restoration, hope, and healing.
Are you in need of a financial miracle? Maybe you need healing in your relationships or in your body? Stop right where you are and cry out to the Lord today, for He is already perfecting the things that concern you the most. Your miracle is on the way. I believe that you are on the road to total victory.
I love the story of Joshua and his army marching around the walls of Jericho (Joshua 6). The wall was a massive structure that no army could penetrate, but that did not stop God from giving them the victory.
Joshua didn’t do what most people would have expected. He put the praise leaders and band in front of the army. Then he told the people; “Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!” Notice that he told the people to shout because the miracle had already happened! They could not see it with their natural vision, but the victory had already taken place in the supernatural. As the people of Israel shouted their praise, the walls crumbled to the ground. Are you in need of a miracle today? Give Him praise.
Are you in need of healing today? Give thanks for His goodness! Begin to “call those things that are not as though they are” (Romans 4:17).
It is easy for us to gravitate toward what is wrong in our lives. We all too often focus on the negative things that need to be changed when we should focus on what is good. Regardless of your current situation, God will use your adversities to your advantage. God will use your current testing to become your testimony. We should learn to be thankful for every circumstance, every trial because God will use it to draw us closer to Him.

For your special gift of $250 more, you will also receive our Prophecy Study Bible signed by Pastor John Hagee and “The Bible in Chronological Order” Teaching Series (Genesis & Job). When you give to Hagee Ministries, you are sowing seed in good soil that will reap a harvest for years to come.
The Bible is full of promises from God for those who believe. Psalm 84:11 tells us that; “No good thing will He withhold from those who diligently seek Him.” John 10:10 declares that while the enemy comes “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy,” Jesus came to give you abundant life.
I want to encourage you today to give your burdens to the Lord. Instead of dwelling on your obstacles, start thanking God that you are an overcomer, more than a conqueror. Praise Him in the shower. Praise Him during your drive to work. Praise Him while you are waiting in line at the grocery store. When you have an attitude of gratitude, there is no room for the enemy to plant seeds of fear or doubt in your life. When you are praising the Lord, thanking Him for the good things He is doing, there is only room for the goodness of God, and for His favor and His blessings to flow freely in your life.
Choose today to be thankful in every circumstance, both good and bad. He is using every situation to shape you into the person He can use to further His Kingdom purposes. No one on this planet can do the job that God has ordained for you. You are one of a kind, a precious gem.
As we approach this Thanksgiving season, we have much to be thankful for as a ministry. We are reaching more people than ever before on television and through new digital media outlets. The Sanctuary of Hope is helping young unwed mothers, and their babies experience hope, health, and life.
It was their praise, that gave them the victory “Your Praise Precedes Your Victory.”
We have provided humanitarian support to those in need of food and medical assistance around the world, and we have launched Vision 2020 that is preparing our ministry to reach the next generation for decades to come.
Without Vision the People Perish — Proverbs 29:18
Throughout the history of Cornerstone Church and Hagee Ministries, we have used the resources God has given us to birth a global media ministry, launch Christians United for Israel, build Cornerstone Christian Schools and Sanctuary of Hope, and provide for numerous humanitarian and ministry events with the purpose of reaching the lost.
In the last 32 years, Cornerstone has celebrated 26,135 baptisms on our main campus, 4,567 baby dedications and more than 301,000 salvations. This does not include the tens of thousands that have been saved as a result of our television outreach.
We have contributed more than $102 million in support of Israel and the Jewish people. The list of opportunities that God has given us is overwhelming, and we give Him all the praise for the great things He has allowed us to do in His name.
We don’t always see things clearly in the natural, but we do have 2020 vision for what the Lord is calling us to do to reach the next generation for Jesus.
It is our hope to receive $40 million in contributions and pledges by April 2020. We don’t know when it will all come in, but we are giving praise to the Lord in advance because we know where there is vision, there is provision. God is able!
Will you “catch the vision?” Will you give an additional pledge, or make an additional “over and above” contribution to Vision 2020? When you give to Vision 2020, you become part of this monumental movement towards building an enduring legacy for generations to come.
