DAY 293 - God Has Been Gracious to Me

Today's Reading: Genesis 33

Please read Genesis 33 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.)

"For to see your face is like seeing the face of God, now that you have received me favorably. Please accept the present that was brought to you, for God has been gracious to me and I have all I need." Genesis 33: 10 - 11

When we were having our daily devotion together this morning Michelle was so thankful to receive her key words from Jesus from Genesis 33: 11 "God has been gracious to me". She shared what she experienced in the past two months is "God has been gracious to me". We had a wonderful time with the presence of Jesus offering our prayer of thanksgiving to Him. We had a wonderful daily devotion together indeed!

If you have not tried to have daily devotion with your spouse you really need to start. Satan's main task is to deceive, divide and conquer. See how two brothers, Esau and Jacob being deceived, divided and conquered by control, hatred, anger and fear. See how Jacob expressed his deep feeling of "to see your face is like seeing the face of God, now that you have received me favorable." I feel a deep relief that I can "receive" and accept all those I may not be able to do that for various reasons. I feel a deep relief that I can see those people I don't want to see any more for they have hurt me deeply. I choose to "receive"! Do you have someone in your life that you can not forgive? That you do not want to see? Ask Jesus to help you to forgive and receive, that is the only way!

Dear Lord Jesus,

No word can express our thanks to you that you uplifted Michelle and our family in this crisis. You have been so gracious to all of us and we felt it so strong today of your gracious love. Help us to be able to receive those whom we are not able to receive that the Deceiver's plan will be completely destroyed. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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!
