DAY 341 - A Perfect Pattern


Today's Reading: Exodus 31


Please read Exodus 31 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.)

Then the Lord said to Moses, "See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts..." Exodus 31: 1-3




What I heard from Jesus today is a pattern of how God prepares His servants, no matter whether in Old Testament times, New Testament times and any time:


1. To be chosen by God (v.1)

2. To be filled with the Holy Spirit with various gifts (v. 3)

3. Helper(s) appointed to help


The questions we need to have to ponder today are:

1. Are we willing to be chosen by God?

2. Do we understand that we cannot do God's work without being filled by the Holy Spirit?

3. Do we understand that God will prepare helpers to help us? Are we willing to accept their help?



Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to follow your perfect pattern to be your faithful and gifted servant and to help others to do so too. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Michelle has good news! Her doctor thought all the cancer cells have been removed and that she did not have to go back to VGH since four days ago but to have a bone marrow test tomorrow at 8a.m.. The bone marrow test should happen two weeks later but since all her reading have been excellent, so it is scheduled tomorrow. So, before Wednesday we should be able to know whether all her cancer cells have been removed and if it is so, then she has to go through a two years maintenance period. She needs to go to VGH once every three weeks and then after that a five year observation period. Then after seven years she will be considered completely healed!

HELLO HOLY SPIRIT!

It’s such a joy to witness the awesome power of the Holy Spirit moving among the Christians here. As we were worshiping at Dukum MKC church, there was so much singing, shouting, dancing, and a glorious exaltation of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is working so powerfully among the people here and no one holds back in worship.

Free. Full-hearted. Open. Jubilant.

That is worship.

Although I did not understand a word they say (with the exception of J├ęsus), I was worshiping in spirit and in truth. Can you imagine a church made of mud and steel plating, and yet it is FILLED with passionate worshipers who want only to praise God with their whole heart, body, mind, and soul? WOW!

Yesterday we went to visit 2 homes. At the first house we visited a girl and her sister, cousin, and mom...

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!
