Follow God to Victory
Have you ever noticed that you often face your greatest attacks when you’re about to give birth to the dreams God placed in your heart? The enemy waits until you’re close to the promotion, close to the breakthrough. He’ll strike when you’re just about to step up to a new level. Don’t be surprised if you face opposition or go through a disappointment. Perhaps a friend whom you were counting on is not there. Or, it’s taking longer than you expected. That simply means you’re about to give birth to what God has placed in your heart. The good news is, the forces that are for you are greater than the forces that are against you. Your destiny cannot be stopped by a bad break, by disappointments, by opposition or by other people. God always causes you to triumph. He says, “No weapon formed against you will ever prosper.”

A Prayer for Today
“God, even when I am under fire from the enemy I will rise up and claim victory over sin and defeat with You by my side. Thank you for leading me toward a life of joy and abundance. I will faithfully follow Your direction. ”

My Comments:
I can sure say AMEN to that one. My Inn was sold about a year ago and the funds were made available for a new place to live. There were many options but felt strongly guided to secure a property next door to my daughter in Kealia about 17 miles south of Kailua Kona where we had been living. The price was right, considering that it needed a total remodel and cleanup for the 24′ x 40′ dingbat single wall constructed home of 1973 and a 1/2 acre+ full of rocks. We are now a year later and the house has been totally remodeled, the carport rebuilt and my study added. We now have a common area with a 2nd kitchen and bath which will accommodate about 25 for a meal. And we are building a barn/ohana for having a place for guests to visit. But the last year has been the most difficult of my life, and especially at my age. A total battle field of building obstruction and gout and other foot issues so in pain much of the time. But praise the LORD, the Light is beginning to shine, the healing has started in the LORD and the Vision is coming alive as I cling in faith to Romans 8:26-37

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

And it would appear that the LORD has used this year to deal soundly with some flesh still alive in my life. So many times I have been tempted to just quit and run. So it seems that more has been done in me spiritually than in what I have been trying to do physically. I know that I am now much more in touch with the Holy Spirit than ever before. Much more ready to meet the LORD in the clouds when HE comes for HIS CHURCH. And much more able to minister HIS WORD in love and truth than ever before. So naked came I into this world and naked goeth I forth, Praise be the Name of the LORD. Ecc. 5:15, Job 1:21… You know, Job was tested due to his fear: Job 3:25 but that is another story…. Fear is faith going backwards, Be Blessed in your day, Ken<><
