April 18
…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.  Romans 10:9-10 ESV
 
Deuteronomy 1

When the Lord sets something before me and tells me to go and possess it, I must!  I do not want to forfeit any promise my Lord has for me.  An eleven day journey took 40 years.  I don’t think anyone can judge this when we look back at our own lives but I’ll save this one for a message!  Each has an assigned role and it doesn’t matter whether we are to lead thousands or tens.  What matters is that we serve the Lord in whatever role He gives us with obedience, excellence, faithfulness and thanksgiving.  Believing the lie that God hates His creation causes so many problems.  This is such a deceptive device the enemy uses against people and this is why it is so important for people to know how much the Lord loves them.  Lord, I choose to believe You and Your Word and anytime I even get close to not doing so, please Holy Spirit, correct me immediately!  I don’t want to be blind to how wonderful You are, always with me, always leading me.  Wholly following the Lord as Caleb and Joshua did brings fulfilled promises and blessing.  What does this mean?  Walk in faith and never by sight.  
 
Proverbs 28
I can be bold as a lion for I live in the righteousness of my Lord.  It sure seems these scriptures are speaking of our life in the USA in terms of governance.  Only with Your help Lord is there hope for America.  There are so many good promises for those who are generous and who live a life in fear of the Lord.  
 
Philippians 2
Humility always pleases God.  It still amazes me what our Lord Yeshua did for all of humankind.  God Almighty becoming human to pay our price for the sin of all humankind.  It truly is beyond words…  And my response must be (though I went many years without obedience until I truly submitted to my Lord Yeshua):
 
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
 
My God never likes grumbling or disputing as we have certainly seen throughout reading Exodus.  Lord, I am asking for persons with the character of Timothy to rise up as the next generation Pastors and Leaders of Kona Faith Center.  
 
Meditate & Apply:  What matters is that we serve the Lord in whatever role He gives us with obedience, excellence, faithfulness and thanksgiving.  Walk in faith and never by sight.  I must continue to pray and stand on the Word of God for revival in America without waiver!  I must be bold to share the Gospel!  Terry, walk in obedience, working out my salvation with fear and trembling knowing it is God working in me for His good pleasure.  Lord, I continue to pray for the “Timothy’s” to arise and take on their appointed offices at Kona Faith Center.

Thank God that He is so gracious and loving that He sent Jesus for each one of us! And He loves us so much He guides and corrects us to keep us on the right path. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness.

What matters is that we serve the Lord in whatever role He gives us with obedience, excellence, faithfulness and thanksgiving. Believing the lie that God hates His creation causes so many problems. This is such a deceptive device the enemy uses against people and this is why it is so important for people to know how much the Lord loves them. - SO TRUE! How easy it is to get off track because of the constant attack from the enemy!

Walk in faith and never by sight. Amen!

Only with Your help Lord is there hope for America. - Amen! It does seem to speak of the US and where we're at right now.

work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. - Amen!
