Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.  Romans 13:8 CSB

Numbers 35

My God is so merciful.  Thank You Lord that You are my City of Refuge in all things! You are my high tower whom I run to! 

Our laws that differentiate manslaughter from murder, like most of the laws that were first written for the USA, were Biblically based as they should be.  It still amazes me that man thinks it okay to change God’s definition of marriage, say that abortion is not murder, etc.  Lord we need judges in our courts at all levels that know You so they can judge righteously!  Father, I pray in the Name of Yeshua Messiah that the Christian, conservative, constitutionalists be placed and not be stopped! 

The bloodshed of murder defiles the land.  Help us Lord!  Only through You can the evils be stopped!

Proverbs 26

I never have to worry if someone curses me because I am protected by my God.  Hanging out with those the Lord deems foolish only makes one more foolish than the fool.  God despises laziness and gossip, meddling and deceit.  Why would anyone who is walking with the Lord want to hang out with those He despises?  Yes, we are to witness to those in the world by our life in Messiah but those God considers fools will not receive.

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to STAND. 14 STAND firm then…  Ephesians 6:13,14a  CSB

Numbers 34

Seriously, is there any question which land belongs to Israel?  Does God not mean what He says?  I’m just saying…

Proverbs 25

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to investigate a matter.

Lord, please remove the wicked from our president’s presence, giving him righteous people for counsel so our nation can be ruled in righteousness. 

It is better to work out a matter with an opponent than to have to go to court in our unjust world. 

11 A word spoken at the right time is like gold apples in silver settings. 12 A wise correction to a receptive ear is like a gold ring or an ornament of gold.

Trustworthiness is refreshing for few walk in it. 

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; 22 for you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

Ladies, don’t nag your husbands (or anyone else for that matter)!

And for this reason you pay taxes, since the authorities are God’s servants, continually attending to these tasks. Pay your obligations to everyone: taxes to those you owe taxes, tolls to those you owe tolls, respect to those you owe respect, and honor to those you owe honor.  Romans 13:6-7 CSB

Numbers 33

Don’t mess around when God says to drive out the enemy because though the devil may come as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), he is the deceiver, the accuser, the father of lies, the one who can only kill, steal and destroy.  He is to have absolutely no part in my life and what the Lord promises me! 

Proverbs 24

Righteousness and evilness have absolutely nothing in common.  Lord, I ask that we build the new house of Kona Faith Center with Your wisdom and it is established with Your understanding and knowledge.  Then I know it will be filled with every precious and beautiful treasure which of course are Your created people who You call by name!  Likewise it takes knowledge, sound guidance and many counselors to win the victory in battle.  Strength alone is never enough.  The Lord asks me to rescue anyone I can from death.  Wisdom, like honey is sweet. 

16 Though a righteous person falls seven times, he will get up, but the wicked will stumble into ruin.

I am never to gloat when someone fails.  My God hates injustice and you can put your money on this – He will deal with it!  Honesty really is the absolute best policy.  Vengeance is not something I should ever possess.  God is the Great Judge and He will take care of it.  Laziness leads to only one thing and that thing is called poverty.

Lord, thank You so very much for all of the rain You have been giving us.  It is so beautiful today!  I thank You for the Holy Spirit reign in our lives and You moving in our community to bring those lost in darkness into Your wonderful Kingdom of Light.  Thank You Lord for my brothers and sisters of whom I pray today will take every opportunity to share the Good News of who You are!  Bless all who are wholehearted following after You and You alone!

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.  Romans 3:23-24 CSB

Numbers 32

In this decision to stay on the opposite side of the Jordan from the Promised Land, with the Gadites and Reubenites, more land in Gilead was added to Israel.  The plans of the Lord will NEVER be thwarted!  I hope you are all praying for Israel and paying attention to what is going on with Iran and Russia in Syria.  Again, the plans of the Lord will NEVER be thwarted and we are living in fulfillment of prophecy right now!

It is vital that I not only enter the promises of God but that I lead others to also receive their promises!  I must always be armed and ready in all things God!

Proverbs 23

Self-control and discipline are necessary in all aspects of life. 

Don’t wear yourself out to get rich; because you know better, stop!  As soon as your eyes fly to it, it disappears, for it makes wings for itself and flies like an eagle to the sky.

This is what happens when a Believer seeks money over the Lord.  BUT: Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.

Fools cannot understand the wisdom of the Lord but the Lord rejoices when we speak the Words of life from Him. 

One of the biggest blessings in our life is that our son Eric regularly will discuss things with us so that he gets wisdom on making decisions in the Lord.  He gets it that we have been around for a while, walking with the Lord, and our counsel is never to hinder Him but always to direct him to the Lord in his decision making.  Woe is me if I would ever lead my children in opposition to the Lord!

23Buy—and do not sell—truth, wisdom, instruction, and understanding.

Then he said to them all, “If anyone wants to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me will save it.  Luke 9:23-24

Numbers 31

Moses did as the Lord asked regarding the Midianites though his wife and her family were from Midian.  God has to come before family without exception. 

Proverbs 22

Attributes I must have to please my Lord: a good name, humility, the fear of the Lord, guarding myself from the way of the crooked, being a lender and not a borrower, generosity, not tolerating mockers, love pure hearts and gracious lips, live in the knowledge of my God, confidence in the Lord, giving dependable reports, and not hanging out with angry people.

29 Do you see a person skilled in his work?  He will stand in the presence of kings.  He will not stand in the presence of the unknown.
