DAY 296 - Who Are You in God's Plan?

Today's Reading: Genesis 36

Please read Genesis 36 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 36:

Chinese: 36&version=CUV

NIV: 36&version=NIV

ESV: 36&version=ESV

Message: 36&version=MSG

These were the chiefs among Esau's descendants: The sons of Eliphaz the firstborn of Esau: Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, Korah, Gatam and Amalek. These were the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in Edom; they were grandsons of Adah. Genesis 36: 15-16

What I read in this chapter are names after names, family trees, kings after kings, people died and other succeeded. What I heard from Jesus is "who do we think we are and can be in God's master plan?" We are so small, only a name in somewhere or no name at all. Are we useless or are we useful in the eyes of the Lord?

But then the Lord led me to look at another angle. If we can have a fresh start as Jacob and be fruitful and increase in number, then our story will be totally different. By God's grace we can raise up faithful disciples and leaders for Christ and there can be names after names and a huge family tree if we are willing. We can be nobody in God's plan and waste our life. If we can enter into God's plan and preparation by faith, then the influence will be generations and generations.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Show me how can I be in your plan that I can raise up leaders for you and to bring up a good family tree to honor your Mighty Name. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Face book version:

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!
