DAY 110 - When to stay and when to go

Today’s Reading: Acts 21

Please read Acts 21: 1 – 40 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. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Acts 21:


Finding the disciples there, we stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way. All the disciples and their wives and children accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray. Acts 21: 4-5

What I received from Jesus today is the 'secret' of how to become a disciple of Christ – when to stay and when to go.

In the midst of the rest of Paul’s missionary journey, he knows when to stay and when to go. In Acts 20: 31 clearly states that Paul stayed for three years in Ephesus. In Acts 21: 4, Paul stayed for seven days with the disciples and then he left “when our time was up”(Acts 21:5).
Do you know when to stay and when your time is up?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to establish a closer relationship with you that I know when to stay and when to go. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer items today:
Bishop: The Rt. Rev. Silas Ng

We have started our 2nd phase of 100 days of prayer. I am calling you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ to fill in your names in the new list below. Many wonderful things have happened in the past 100 days. Can we follow our King, our Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ to use an hour’s time to pray for His protection and blessings to my new ministry as the Bishop of ACiC/AI, all our ACiC/AI clergy, leaders and people? Pray that in the Holy and Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, we can win over Satan's tricks, in order to strengthen our brothers and sisters so that His Kingdom will be extended.
