The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week then prayerfully remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!

Today's Reading: Isaiah 46

Please read Isaiah 46 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 Isaiah 46:
Bible Study

This chapter compares the power of God and those idols of Babylon.
Bel was the chief god of Babylon and Nebo was the god of learning, writing and astronomy. These false gods could not bring protection to Babylon from being destroyed.

In contrast to those idols made by human hands to be carried by those who made them, God is able to carry us. He has cared and provided for us from the beginning of our lives to the rest of our lives towards our lives in heaven.

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: No. 1 enemy - Compare! Insecure! !Rebel!

Listen to me, O house of Jacob,
all you who remain of the house of Israel,
you whom I have upheld since you were conceived,
and have carried since your birth.
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

To whom will you compare me or count me equal?
To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?

Isaiah 46: 3-5
Do you know your No. 1 enemy who tries all his best to pull you away from your King, Your Savaior and Your Lord? Who want to put you always in comparing with others, insecure and rebel? Of course you know but you might not care. So what? What can Satan do to me?

Jesus leads me to see the route of Satan as he compares himself with God and want to count God as equal. What is that? That is insecure! There are so many people on earth so insecure, always wants to be top of everybody but always so insecure and full of fear. Fear of not better than so and so, fear of unable to be the best, fear of so many things and then... just like Judah, just like the Israelites turning their backs to God to rebel against God and His servants. They worship those they can carry not knowing that those they can carry like money, fame, luxury lifestyle and power only brings them more insecurity, fear and then become rebels. How sad! Babylon was on that route and no more, destroyed, Israel has been on that route for quite sometimes and in lots of sufferings. Don't go that route!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know our No. 1 enemy's route and not to compare with anyone like Satan who wants to count you equal. Remove all the insecurity in us that we won't rebel against you but be a true faithful disciple of you. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
