DAY 373 - Do You Need A Sleeping Clinic?

Today's Reading: Leviticus 23

Please read Leviticus 23 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.)

"The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement...I will destroy from among his people anyone who does any work on that day. You shall do no work at all." Leviticus 23: 27,30-31

"Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it must be put to death; whoever does any work on that day must be cut off from his people." Exodus 31: 14

In vain you rise early and stay up late,

toiling for food to eat - for he grants sleep to those he loves. Psalm 127: 2

Wow! Today Jesus told me something I did not expected from reading this chapter. He brought up two other passages reminding me the importance of stopping working when He commanded us to stop working.

We can have a whole day talking about the importance of feast days and the comparison of the feast days of Moses time and feast days of Christian churches. But, today Jesus reminded us on the importance of REST.

There are more and more sleeping clinics in North America. More and more people can not sleep well or cannot sleep at all sometimes. Lots of people are taking sleeping pills, and if they do not take the pills, they cannot sleep! This Sunday a 91 year-old member of our church told me joyfully that he could sleep now without taking any sleeping pills after hearing what I told him about not relying on the pills but on Jesus! Wonderful! Praise the Lord!

Do we know the importance of not working and resting in the Lord! If not, we may sooner or later go to a sleeping clinic seeking for solution, and that might be a dead end!

God promises that all those He loves can have good sleep! You need to pray and claim His promise!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Teach me to know how to say NO, how to stop working and how to rest in you daily. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Don't worry, Michelle is fine. Thanks for some of our friends concerned, sending greetings and asking about how bad Michelle is. That is a kind of side effect which the doctor said would happen. She is better today. Anyway she needs to have two to three kinds of pills for two years. One is a chemo pill changing the cancer cells into healthy cells. Incredible! The pill was invented in 1994 by a Chinese person. Since then, patients who have APL like Michelle have a better survival rate from 50% to now 80%!

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:

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!
