DAY 356 - An Aroma Pleasing to The Lord

Today's Reading: Leviticus 6

Please read Leviticus 6 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.)

"These are the regulations for the grain offering: Aaron's sons are to bring it before the Lord, in front of the altar. The priest is to take a handful of fine flour and oil, together with all the incense on the grain offering, and burn the memorial portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.

Leviticus 6:14-15

Today I had a most important and precious moment with Jesus! He used an e-mail from my friend, Alice Cheung, (we served the Lord together in the Hong Kong Diocesan Youth ministry from 1988 to 1994) to tell me that He accepted my offering of an overnight prayer in 1991. That the Lord told me this after 19 years (and in the day Michelle got the report to confirm that she is healed) is more than a miracle to me. After all these years, the Lord has been training me to face storms, numerous storms so that I can help others to face storms! That night I knelt praying from 3a.m. to 6:30a.m. and then Jesus gave me Psalm 121! Dr. Philemon Yuen Wan Choi was the speaker in that camp, the first ever all-Anglican High School Student Gospel Camp. I was at that time the Diocesan Youth Officer and the Chair of that Camp. We had around 220 students attending, and 150 received Christ! Quite a number of group leaders in that camp are now priests in the Anglican Church of Hong Kong, including the Cathedral Dean, the Ven. Andrew Chan. There is a purpose for the Lord to remind me of this experience today, and I know what He means! Thank you Lord!

Please read Alice's sharing:

Dear Silas,
I was taking a short rest from work just now and played the keyboard. I turned the page and saw the song 我的感謝, as I played through the song, it reminds me of you. That is the song that we sang in a Gospel Camp (我找到了) many years ago (1991??). I remembered this distinctly because the day before we had the camp, we had a typhoon. You told us how you knelt down in the middle of the night and fervently prayed to God to allow us to have the camp as scheduled and how your tears kept rolling down as you prayed. Indeed God granted your prayers and by the time for registration, the typhoon signals had been removed. Because of this, this song became almost the theme song of our camp. We were so thankful to God! You and Michelle are still in our prayers. May God grant you peace as you await the result.
In Christ,

The song "My Thanks" is in Chinese and I don't have the English version for that but I'll try my best to translate the song for those who can't read Chinese:

Everytime when I saw a storm was approaching and the sky was so dark and cloudy, I blame the Lord discreetly for I hate this discouraging weather. Stormy and rainy days are always so boring!

Today I thank our Heavenly Father to give me those teachings through rainy days!

Now I understand there won't be sunny days without rainy days. Without rainy season, who loves sunny sky!


My Lord! You allow me to walk through storms. You let me to walk through dark valleys alone. You help me when I was facing trials and now I had no fear in crisis. I have no fear!

My Lord! You allow me to walk through dark nights. You let me to walk through thousands of miles alone. You lead me home and I truly give thanks to you and praise you!

Wow! Praise the Lord for using Alice to strengthen me, telling me that I should have no fear to face any storm with Him walking side by side. Let us offer what we have to Him as an aroma pleasing to the Lord!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for giving me all those storms that I can be closer to you. Help me to remember today's encounter with you so that I will not be afraid again the next time I face a storm. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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:http://21ethiopiandays.wordpress.com/

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!
