DAY 277 - Covenant and Flesh

Today's Reading: Genesis 17

Please read Genesis 17 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.)

Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant. Genesis 17: 13

Jesus led me to count how many time the word "covenant" appears in this chapter. The word 'covenant' appears fourteen times. God gave a new name to Abram as Abraham. God gave a new name to Sarai as Sarah. Why? It was time for a new relationship and time for God to lock this new relationship through a new way of signing a "covenant" - circumcision. Money, sex and power are the trap the Deceiver plans in our lives to take us away from the intimate relationship with God. And here it is "sex", "flesh", "human desire"...

Can you get away from this trap? How can you get away from this trap? Are you "clean", "holy" lately?

Dear Lord Jesus,

Pour down your blood to cleanse me, cover me and protect me that I will never step into the Deceiver's trap to sin in flesh. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

How can that be that Michelle's mom will be in Vancouver this Monday! She bought her ticket a month ago and only God knew that Michelle would start her 2nd chemo this Monday! Awesome! So Michelle will have her mom to be with her for a month right on the first day of her 2nd chemo. She will receive a lot of comfort from this wonderful confirmation of the Lord's preparation beyond human imagination! Thank you 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!
