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.)

Please click the links below to Genesis 12:
"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.
