DAY 428 - From Take to Give

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 15
Please read Deuteronomy 15 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 14:
However, there should be no poor among you, for in the Land the Lord your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you, if only you fully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 14:22-23

Give, give, give! Cancel debts, to be openhanded and give!
Every time God's people returned to God and started a renewal relationship then God asked them to tithe, to make offerings and to give as much as they can to other people. That is what loving God and His people really means.

Too many Christians are trying to take, take and take. What can I get from the sermon today? How much people and joy can I get if I go to next week's conference? How much help can I get if I join this house group? How....

It's a paradigm change from 'take' to 'give'. But once you start to give, and give and give more, then you will know what God means in this chapter. If you do not try to start to give, then you'll never understand how blessed it could be!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to give more to you and to other people! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

There is no better teaching I have heard than what our Chairman bishop, Rt. Rev. Chuck Murphy, teaches about tithing. So you really need to see all the clips now from his talk of Theology of Stewardship last Saturday in our 1st ACiC/AI Regional Conference. That way at least, you will know why you need to tithe, though like many people you might still do what you want to do and not what God wants you to do:

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!


  1. Just when I least expect it, God blesses me many times over.

    Having been a fan of Bishop Ng's blog, my days changed when my sister took seriously ill and the bishop's blog went on the back burner as did my own personal blog "My Journey with God's Word".

    Just as my sister returned home, God sent someone to show me His love and it was through Bishop Ng. I don't know him, I've never met him, but he contacted me just when I needed to be touched. When I first followed his blog, I became inspired to get my eyes and my heart into God's Word on a daily basis. Now, out of nowhere, Bishop Ng comes into my life with words of encouragement, love and understanding for my falling away during a difficult time. He didn't want to dwell on what I hadn't done, but instead on what I have yet to do.

    God placed me on Bishop Ng's heart and I've been blessed. I've heard God calling and I have no doubt what He is saying to me. I'm back on track with My Journey.

    Thank you God and thank you Bishop Ng.

  2. Thanks Peg for we have just experienced what says in Romans 8:28:
    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
    Your sharing gives me lots of encouragements too!
    Because yesterday I heard someone passed judgements and accusations on me and I was deeply hurt. Your sharing give me encouragement, light and hope too!
