DAY 261 - God Said What?

Today’s Reading: Genesis 1

Please read Genesis 1 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 1:





Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." Genesis 1: 26

The Friday four weeks ago we had a big shock to know that Michelle has leukemia. The past four weeks has been the most difficult time for our whole family. Yesterday I completed my daily spiritual journal on the New Testament and today we start the first word of the Bible - In the beginning God created. I do humbly hope and pray that God will make today a new beginning of our family. We pray that just like what Ignatius received from Jesus four weeks ago from John 11 that Michelle's crisis will bring us to a new grounds of believing.

Indeed, we have experienced numerous acts of God and love from our dear brothers and sisters. This will surely turns into a new chapter of our faith journey and a new grounds of believing. How wonderful it is when we can hear what God says!

When God said we would be created in his own image and likeness and that we could rule over things, we miss something. God never said that we should rule over each other. Human beings are being created to love each others and live in unity to make heaven on earth. But the history of mankind shows the pain of our trying to be God and wanting to rule others. In the process, we are destroying the goodness of God's creation! Everything is "I said" but not "God said"!

God said what? Do you remember?

Let's have a new beginning to follow what God said to lead a life of Christ-likeness and to bring goodness to His creation.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for creating me in your own likeness. Help me to listen more carefully to what you said and not rule over others but be fruitful. 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 disciple. 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 disciple to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
