DAY 452 - You Obey, God Provide

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: Joshua 5
Please read Joshua 5 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 Joshua 5:
Now this is why he did so: All those who came out of Egypt - all the men of military age - died in the desert on the way after leaving Egypt. All the people that came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the desert during the journey from Egypt had not. Joshua 5: 4-5

How serious it was that all the people born in the desert during the journey from Egypt had not been circumcised. Yes, indeed it needs forty years for all the men who were of military age to die because God said so. Still we can see how disobedient those Israelites were. And they did not keep the Passover! Maybe their excuse for not having circumcision was inconvenience. Well, do we make these kind of "inconvenience" excuses often? We do not have time to pray, to have daily devotion, to join a small group, to go to Sunday worship weekly, to tithe, to read spiritual books, to go to weekly prayer meeting..., because it is "inconvenient".

Forty years God provided them with manna. Once they started to obey completely again, the manna stopped and they ate the food from the land. And they had the commander of the army of the Lord to fight for them.

When I am writing my blog in the sitting room downstair, Ignatius is worshiping the Lord singing "Mighty to save" upstair in his room. It is such a wonderful feeling that a father is recording and delivering what he has got from Jesus through the blog and his son is praising God upstair in his room with his guitar playing and wonderful voice and loud banging with his feet on the floor. I know he has to complete a paper today (my son is in the first two months of his Master of Divinity program at Regent College), and he needs his Savior to be with him to do this paper well. It is a wonderful time for me now that he is writing and then worshipping and singing and then writing and then worshipping and singing...

Yes, call on the Name of the Lord and be saved(please click "Here I am to worship" and call on the Name of the Lord - Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...)

You obey, God provide! Fear not for anything, for if you obey, God provide.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Remind me and help me to have the assurance of you today that when I obey, you will provide in a mighty way. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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!
