Today's Reading: Genesis 41
Please read Genesis 41 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.)

"I cannot do it," Joseph replied to Pharaoh, "but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires." Genesis 40:18-19
"I can do it!", "We can do it!", "You can do it!", this is too familiar to us in movies, elections and many occasions. We ask people to say it out loud to make sure that we have confident in doing all things.
But, when Pharaoh asked Joseph to interpret his dreams and Joseph said, "I cannot do it, but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires." Wow! What kind of awareness Joseph had, what kind of relationship he had with God and what kind of courage he dare to say that. He might lose his head!
When we were having ,Michelle said she is now in the seven years of famine and praise the Lord that He prepared us well that we can face this most difficult time. Also, she witnesses that many of our brothers and sisters are being blessed and renewed through this crisis.
I wrote my first blog on July 3, 2009 after responding to the Lord's call to start writing "Daily Devotion On Fire". I thought that it was to help more Christians to have daily devotion and to be able to listen and obey to Jesus. If fact, it is also my seven years of good years that I have established a never-before intimate relationship with Jesus before April 9, 2010 the day I knew Michelle had leukemia. Nine months before everything happened. What if I did not listen and obey and do nothing? I am pretty sure that I might have collapsed, and Michelle, and Ignatius, and Athanasius, and ....
"I cannot do it!" Yes, indeed I cannot but only in God we live and have our being!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Praise the Lord to give me an opportunity to know that without you I cannot do anything. Thank you for your preparation long time before the year of famine came. And thank you for your provision in the time of famine. Help us to know always that only in you we can. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Wow, today the doctor said Michelle was so well that she does not need to go to VGH daily anymore but once every two days. Her white cell went up 0.2 today as compare to yesterday and is now 1.4. Her platelets has another dramatic raise from yesterday's 304 to 344! Her hemoglobin are staying the same as yesterday 82. Thanks for your prayers! Her teeth of the top left hand side are still very painful, please pray for that.
