  • Today's Reading: Numbers 23
  • Please read Numbers 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.)

    Please click the links below to Numbers 23:

    Chinese: 23&version=CUV

    NIV: 23&version=NIV

    ESV: 23&version=ESV

    Message: 23&version=MSG

    "I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The Lord their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them." Numbers 23: 20-21

    Jesus asked me today, "Is the shout of the King among my people?" I said, "Mostly not! Help us to revive our worship that we can have a heart to shout praising you."

    King Balak wanted Balaam to curse the Israelites but no matter how Balak did Ballaam did not respond for he received command from God that he could not curse His people. When I read that one of the reasons is the shouting of the King proving that God is with them, I think of our worship. Often times I do not see and feel the spirit of "shouting to the Lord" when we are worshiping. We are like having our own wedding banquet with our bride beside us but looking at other girls or other thing like "How can I deal with my work tomorrow?" , "Which restaurant should we go after this service?", "I don't like this song!"...

    Rise up soldiers, shout to your King when you are worshipping Him! Fire up! Rise up!

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    Open my heart that I can shout to you as my King. 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:

    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!
