DAY 423 - 12 Days Fasting/Day 12: A Breakthrough for ACiC/AI

Praise the Lord that we have completed 400 days/24 hours Prayer Campaign! Without this prayer shield I think I might not be able to face the storm of Michelle's leukemia. You really need to believe in this kind of power of prayers! You really need to join us! This is how the Lord commanded me more than a year ago to teach as many people as I can to pray as never before and to experience the power of prayers! Have you experienced yet?

Please sign up for the 5th stage - 500 days

5th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign (September 25, 2010 to January 2, 2011

Today's Reading: Deuteronomy 10
Please read Deuteronomy 10 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 Deuteronomy 10:
Now I had stayed on the mountain forty days and nights, as I did the first time, and the Lord listened to me at this time also. It was not his will to destroy you. "God," the Lord said to me, "and lead the people on their way, so that they may enter an possess the land that I swore to their fathers to give them." Deuteronomy 10:10-11

Moses fasted and prayed on the mountain for his people and they had a breakthrough. Thanks for you 12 days of fasting of prayers that we had a major breakthrough yesterday in the AGM of ACiC/AI. After months of hard work from our Network Leadership Team, we unanimously passed a motion to accept a new Vision, Mission, Purpose and Four Years Strategic Plan. Also I gave them good news that I am going to sign a contract today with Dr. Terry Walling to be my personal coach and coach for our NLT team, clergy and people for four years. Dr. Walling has been the personal coach of our Chairman bishop, Rt. Rev. Chuck Murphy, for the past 1 1/2 year. He is a Fuller D. Min. professor and the chairman of a professional coaching consultant company, Leadership Breakthrough.

At the end of the completion of Moses 40 days fasting and prayers for Moses, God commanded Moses to go and lead His people, even though they were a stiff-necked people(10: 16). It's not easy to be a leader, for we are all stiff-necked people! I praise the Lord for I know many of you are not stiff-necked, and had fasted and prayed for 12 days. Can you believe that 12 days of fasting and praying brings us to a breakthrough beyond our imagination.

You can see the picture taken yesterday during our AGM with the presence of Bishop Chuck and Archdeacon H Miller. At the screen was a picture that we took in the three days retreat in Seattle with Dr. Terry Walling fine tuning the new Mission and Vision document. While we were having our meeting for three days, many Dream Lifter airplanes were test-flying everyday and landing just in front of our hotel, right next to the boeing factory. This hugh remodelled, doubled-size 747 (cargo plane to provide resources) covered the whole window just in front of us. Dr. Terry said, "Wow! This is prophetic! We are on a Dream Lifter project." Yes, Bishop Chuck started with his address yesterday that we needed to have big dreams. Let's rise up to be a Dream Lifter for the Lord! Let's rise up and lead His people!

Please see below our new Mission and Vision, Purpose and Four Years Strategic Plan:

Twitter 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!
