DAY 23 - Have You been Experiencing Jesus

Today’s Reading: Matthew 2

(Please read Matthew 2: 1 – 23 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)

Please click the links below to Matthew 2:

“So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt.”Matthew 2:14
“So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.” Matthew 2: 21

“Have you been experiencing Jesus?” This is the question I received from Jesus to you today.

It is such a big contrast that the chief priests and teachers had to answer Herod’s question by the Book as a knowledge they had. But, the Magi and Joseph could have a real experience of God and could listen and obey right away.

The Lord commands me to write this blog in order to encourage you to have daily devotion. By posting what I hear from Jesus daily, my goal is that you can have the same intimate moment with Jesus.

Reading the Bible is not like learning some kind of knowledge in the past. If so, then you are stepping into the darkness of those chief priests and teachers, it’s useless. The Bible is the Word of God speaking to you all the time if you love to open the Book and read it. Jesus is always there waiting to talk to you, love you, embrace you, protect you and bless you.

The question is: Have you been experiencing Jesus? Or are you just learning something that has already passed and that's all.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for your daily presence! Help me to be able to listen and obey just like what the Magi and Joseph did . In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
