DAY 276 - Can You See The One Who Sees You?

Today's Reading: Genesis 16

Please read Genesis 16 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 16:





She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me." Genesis 16: 13

Many people say that serious trouble started here. Because of the lacking of faith, Abram started the fight of Jews and Arabs for thousands of year.

What the Lord helped me to see was by using another angle. God allowed Hagar to be able to see Him. How wonderful it was! Sometimes I followed a truck with a bumper-sticker saying "If you don't see my mirror, I can't see you." Because people are not seen, accidents happen.

You may remember DAY 1 of my blog about the first chapter of the Gospel of John of the seven "sees"? The seventh one is "allow yourself to be seen" from John 1: 50-51 and Matthew 5: 8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."

If crisis or hopelessness can help us to see God or allow ourselves to be seen by God, then maybe we need some more rainy days rather than all sunshine!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Open my eyes to see you and allow myself to be seen by you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Michelle received her bone marrow test result this afternoon and it was good! The doctor arranged this coming Monday morning to start Michelle's second chemo. And, the great news is that the doctor is allowing Michelle to attend Ignatius' UBC graduation Monday at 1p.m.. So, Michelle will go to VGH Wednesday at 9a.m. and finished by noon and then go to Chan's Centre for Iggy's big day! Wow, thanks for all your prayers! Praise the Lord!

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!
