DAY 445 - In God We Trust

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

Today's Reading: Deuteronomy 32
Please read Deuteronomy 32 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 32:
"See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and on one can deliver out of my hand."
Deuteronomy 32: 39

Moses said to them, "Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. They are not just idle words for you - they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess."
Deuteronomy 32: 46-47

This afternoon (Vancouver time Friday 11p.m., Hong Kong Saturday 2p.m.) Michelle shared with me a wonderful experience of her daily devotion using my blog. When she was reading Deuteronomy 30: 15-16, "See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess." She told me that Jesus told her that she can live. While she was pondering how Jesus comforted her using the word "you will live", then in a few hours time she saw a rarely seen double-rainbow right in front of her near our church building. She took that as God's promise regarding His word. When I heard that, I thanked God, for God has His own way to free my wife's fear of death. Inside herself, she is still often thinking , "Am I going to die soon?" I ask your prayers that this kind of fear will be removed from her mind and soul.

There is nothing better to give Michelle assurance than Moses' song of 43 verses. There is no better way. It is not whether you are going to live or going to die but that you trust in God that He is the only God, that He puts to death and He brings to life, that no one can deliver you out of God's hand. See how Moses trusted in God, though he knew it too well that after he recited the words of this song to all Israelites that he would die. There is no fear of death that you can sense from Moses' song because He not only trusted in the Lord but walked with the Lord. He accepted that his life was going to end. He tried all his best to warn his people that if they want to live long and prosper, they needed to "listen and obey". And it is in this continuous 'listen and obey' daily relationship with God that we can be free of any kind of fear. And may we learn from Moses so that in the very last days and hours of our life, we will not be crushed and destroyed by fear but instead experience the abiding love and blessed assurance from our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Please help us to be assured that only in you can we overcome all kinds of fears. Holy Spirit, come and fill us that we can be strengthened and receive your fresh anointing to enjoy life every day. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Today is such a joyful day that our whole family rejoiced with Dennis as he received his Doctor of Theology degree. It was so wonderful to see Rev. Dr. Paul Chung Chi Ng there, for he is one of the board members.

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!
