Today's Reading: Genesis 48

Please read Genesis 48 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 48:

Chinese: 48&version=CUV

NIV: 48&version=NIV

ESV: 48&version=ESV

Message: 48&version=MSG

When Joseph saw his father placing his right hand on Ephraim's head he was displeased; so he took hold of his father's hand to move it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head. Joseph said to him, "o, my father, this one is the first-born; put your right hand on his head." Genesis 48: 17-18

What is the big deal for Jacob putting his right hand to Ephraim or Manasseh? Well, it really is a big deal. Because the last blessing of a father was considered to be real and it would happen. That's why Jacob cheated Esau for his father's blessing. And even near his last breath, Jacob demonstrated a prophetic gift that he knew what he was doing and that Ephraim would later become greater than his older brother.

What has this to do with you? Lots if you really want to understand! Because nowadays Christians do not believe in the power of blessings. It is not superstitious but so real. Just three hours ago I went to visit one of ACiC sixteen churches, Church of Redeemer in Calgary. It is such a lively and vibrant church under the leader of Rev.Ike Chukuka. Three of his leaders asked me to bless them and told me that they believed in the power of blessing. They said blessing to them is like to refuel an empty tank of gas that the car can go again. They said how could they missed the blessing of an anointed bishop. Wow, I am honored and being encouraged!

I received this way of refueling at least twenty years ago and whenever I have an opportunity to meet with some anointed Christians leaders I would ask them to bless me by laying on of hands. You don't believe and you never know how much you missed. If you believe and practice, then you will know what I mean.

Yes, a blessing is very important!

Dear Heavenly Father,

oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain(prayer of Jabez 1 Chronicles 4: 10). 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!
