DAY 272 - Come into My Blessings

Today’s Reading: Genesis 12

Please read Genesis 12 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.)

Message: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis%2012&version=MSG

"I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Genesis 12:2-3

Perhaps because of Michelle's bone marrow test, both of us could not sleep much last night. It was so wonderful that the Lord blessed me with Genesis 12: 2-3. When those people leaving God's blessed place and the provision of His blessings wanted to make a big name themselves, everything changed and they were scattered. But when someone whose name was Abram dared to listen and obey coming back into His blessings, then WOW!

1. God promised to bless him.

2. He will be a blessing.

3. God will bless those who bless him and curse those who curse him.

4. All people will be blessed through him.

Do you think that this promise would happen to you? I feel so blessed and relaxed today as I am sure that this promise is for all who have faith to enter into His blessings! Yes, it needs lots of faith. And faith is a spiritual gift which we may not be able to acquire through human effort. So, let's pray to ask the Holy Spirit for this gift.

Dear Holy Spirit,

As Michelle and I are both concerned about tomorrow's bone marrow test, pour down on us your Holy Spirit so that we can receive the gift of faith from you to go through all challenges. Come, Holy Spirit come. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
