Today’s Reading: Genesis 13
Please read Genesis 13 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 13:
From the Negev he went from place to place until he came to Bethel, to the place between Bethel and Ai where his tent had been earlier and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the Lord. Genesis 13:3-4
Some people say life is a circle game. You go round and round but never can go to the destination. Is life a circle game to you?
Jesus told me today that life is not a circle game. It is a circle game when we do not listen to him going to where He wants us to go. Or, when we go to the place He leads us and then we lose faith on Him and go on our own way until we return to the starting point and start again.
Jesus showed me how Abram demonstrated this "circle game" mentality of human beings from Genesis 12 to 13. Abram listened and went to the destination Canaan right away, but something happened so that he seems lose faith. Because of just one sentence there "At that time the Canaanites were in the land." Troubles, troublesome people and worries. Then he went to the place Bethel on the west and Ai on the east(12:8), Negev(12:9), Egypt(12:10), Negev(13:1), the place between Bethel and Ai(13:3) and then at last Canaan again(13:12).
How sad! Why? I think it is so easy to lose our faith or be scared of all the challenges facing us so that we end up playing a circle game! Stop playing it now and start your faith journey. Be still and stand firm!
Open my eyes that I can be able to see if I am going to play this circle game again. Help me to enter into this faith journey and go to where you tell me to. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
I was holding Michelle's hand when she was having the bone marrow test. It was a painful experience to watch her suffer through this painful process. She is well now and sleeping like a baby. We are going to know the result this Thursday morning. Please pray!
