June 28
We are on the last flight and will be home in about an hour.  Everything went smoothly today with all aircraft on time.  We flew from Tulsa to Denver to San Francisco and on our way to Kona.  I will send my OHA Friday morning Hawaii time as I am ready to shower and sleep from this 12 hour day of 4 flights and layovers!  All very good though!
1 Samuel 9

Saul began correctly by seeking wisdom from the man of God and wanting to bring an offering.  Although the Lord wanted the people to see Him (the Lord) as the One they should be dedicated to, when they chose a human over Him, God, He still was merciful and cared about the cries of His people.  The Lord appoints time for us for specific purposes.  I really saw this on this trip to the mainland from beginning to end.  
Isaiah 53

I honestly don’t know how anyone could read this chapter just like David did in Psalm 22!  The Good News is that our Messiah not only took my sin, He took my sickness upon Himself also!  The Cross with His blood shed on my behalf covers it all and it was done there once and for all (Hebrews 7:27, Hebrews 9:24-28, Hebrews 10:10 & 12 & 14, 1 Peter 3:18)!  My Lord makes intercession (prays) on my behalf (Hebrews 7:25, Romans 8:34).  
Acts 6
Some serve in the five-fold ministry (Ephesians 4:11-) and some serve in the ministry of Helps (Timothy and Titus chapters, Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12) with none being more important than another, just different anointings to carry forth the Kingdom of God on the earth.  Everyone is needed in the Body of Messiah for He is the Head of the Church and we are the Church, His Body (1 Corinthians 12:12 & 27, Romans 12:4-5, Ephesians 4:4, Colossians 1:18 & 24, etc.).  Those in the Ministry of Helps who serve must also be those who pray for people and serve the Lord with full hearts of Him as Stephen’s life shows us.  
Meditate & Apply: God’s mercy is just that.  He is merciful because we don’t deserve His kindness to us yet He gives it anyway.  His timing is ALWAYS perfect in and through us!  There is no doubt confirmed with so much other scripture that Isaiah is prophesying about Lord Yeshua.  I am so grateful that He always offers prayers on my behalf!  Stephen is a great example as a minister of the Gospel News!
