DAY 454 - Destroy Whatever is Devoted to Destruction

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 7
Please read Joshua 7 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 7:
I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy whatever among you is devoted to destruction. Joshua 7: 12

You want to have a sure lose? Very easy, just do the thing God wants you not to do and that's it.

Yesterday I got four points to have a sure win and point four is: Destroy what God wants you to destroy (Joshua 6: 18,, 21, 24)

Right away God demonstrated how destructive it could be if people disobeyed. Joshua 2: 9 shows how fearful the people of Jericho were: "I know that the Lord has given this land to you and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you." Then because of the disobedience, the same mentality happened to the Israelites: "At this, the hearts of the people melted and became like water."

I still remember many year ago when I went to the home of a man who, after months of coming to our church, was prepared to receive Jesus. He had on the table of his sitting room three yellow post-it notes. One was a record of all the obscene magazines he had like playboy, penthouse etc. The second one was a record of all the obscene VCDs and DVDs. Third one was a record of all the idols he got. He told me that he needed to tell me about all these as they needed to be destroyed before he received Jesus. Wow! That was a "Sure Win" moment. He is now one of our leaders.

Yes, if we do not "destroy whatever among us is devoted to destruction", then the Lord will not be with us and we'll be having a "Sure Lose" life! How sad!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to destroy whatever is devoted to destruction. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer items today:

Urgent Prayers for one of our Anglican Mission's bishop, the Rt. Rev. John Miller, who got a report yesterday that he has prostate cancer. He is going to start his treatment in this few days time. Please pray for his healing, for his wife Joyce and his family.

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!
