DAY 453 - Sure Win!

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: Joshua 6
Please read Joshua 6 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 6:
Then the Lord said to Joshua, "See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days..." Joshua 6: 2-3

You want to have a sure win? Learn and follow the essence of this chapter then you will have a "Sure Win" in God's time. Not always, only in God's time and in His own way, tailor-made way. So, here they are:
1. Spiritual weapons, bullets and strategy (Joshua 6: 1- 16)
For that time, the ammunition was the ram horns, the ark, the way how they marched around the city once the first six days and then seven times the last day. For us, it may mean a similar kind of prayer walk, a seven days or forty days fasting or any method you receive from the Lord and be willing to do it. Since December 1999, Richmond Emmanuel Church had "Operation Jericho" one to three time a year. Usually before our Annual Vestry, Gospel Camp/Summer Camp, Anniversary Celebration or during Holy Week. The way we have been doing this is to have a 6:30a.m. Eucharist follow by a 20 minutes prayer walk of six sections surrounding our church. Then the seventh day we'll walk seven times inside our church, blow a ram horn, sing the hymn "Holy, Holy, Holy" and then pray. We have been doing this for the past ten years already.

2. Save and keep that which God wants you to save and keep (Joshua 6: 17, 19, 22- 25)

3. Destroy what God wants you to destroy (Joshua 6: 18,, 21, 24)

4. Never rebuild those things which God wants you to destroy (Joshua 6: 26)
See what happened in 1 Kings 16: 34, "In Ahab's time, Hiel of Bethel rebuilt Jericho. He laid its foundations at the cost of his firstborn son Abiram, and he set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, in accordance with the word of the Lord spoken by Joshua son of Nun."

If you listen and obey to these four steps, then you will lead a "Sure Win" victorious life for Jesus.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to remember and follow this 'sure win' strategy so that I can lead a victorious life for you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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!
