Today’s Reading: Genesis 3
Please read Genesis 3 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.)

You must be waiting for my post today and it is the first time I have published an article 20 hours late. (Usually I post it daily at 2:12a.m. and it's now 9:53p.m.) I was waiting for someone's "green" light so that I can use this friend's e-mail to show you a good example of what can we get from Genesis 3. I got the "green" light this morning at 7:30a.m. but I had no time to write my blog, for I had a full working day of 12 hours of work! Please read below this shocking but meaningful e-mail as below:
I want to thank you for yesterday. The Lord needed to deal with me and you were his instrument. He has laid bare my soul and shown me the height of my own arrogance, the darkness of my own soul, and it is painful indeed! I have a heart to find my significance only in Jesus, but my flesh is weak. Instead of resting in him, I was seeking after the adulation and recognition from man. I spent the night wrestling with this demon and arose this morning to confession, crying out to the Lord for forgiveness and restoration. Please forgive my resentful rant from yesterday. I am the Lord’s and your servant and seek only to walk in His will and way.
What do I need to say more when we have this good example of how much pain and suffering we might have if we turn God's purpose upside down? God created us that we have His image and likeness and so that we can rule over many things of the earth but not rule over human beings. But in the wrong seeking of desires we do not rule over this world which for centuries we have been facing with so many natural disasters. Instead we desire not for Jesus but all other things and rule over people.
What happened two days ago was that I had a direct confrontation with a friend about some important matter. I sent an e-mail and received an e-mail full of anger. I made a call and after a difficult conversation I was hung up on. I was so sad and the only thing I could do was to pray. It was such a joy when I received this e-mail yesterday night. I hope and pray that more people know that even though we have a heart to find our significance only in Jesus, our flesh is so weak. Lots of time we do not have the power to wrestle with the demon and we have nothing to confess. And, this is what sin is all about!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for giving me a chance to winning over the demon in regards to a friend. Please help me to have a heart to find my significance only in you so that I will not fall into the trap of sin. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
