DAY 458 - Why You Are So Unrested?

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 11
Please read Joshua 11 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 11:
As the Lord commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua, and Joshua did it; he left nothing undone of all that the Lord commanded Moses...Then the land had rest from war. Joshua 11: 15, 23

Jesus gives us a question to think and ponder on: Why you are so unrested?

The answer given in this chapter is: We have not obeyed to His command and left many things undone. So we can not have rest, and we are always deep in warfare.

"You stimulate man to take pleasure in praising you, because you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they can find peace in you. Grant me, O Lord, to know and understand which should come first..." The Confessions of St. Augustine

We do not want to be in the chains of command. We do not want to have our own Moses. We do not know who our Moses is. We think we can be a soldier on our own fighting this severe spiritual warfare. Pray and place yourself in the chains of command. God commanded Moses, Moses commanded you, you command ...

We need to learn how to say, "Yes Sir! Aye Aye Sir!"

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to link up in the chains of command that you prepare for me so that I can find rest in you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

** I am so thankful that we had a powerful Men's talk last night under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Paul Chun Chi Ng. Around 120 men came. We learned a lot how to protect, provide, care and cherish our wives and many of us knelt in front of the Cross in the Holy of Holies to repent, for we have not loved our wives enough and asked the Lord to help us so that we can love our wives more. Powerful! Thank you Lord and thank you Rev. Ng!

Tonight we are going to have the main course: Wedlock Day at 7:30p.m. in Pacific Grace Church(Sing Dou Church). And tomorrow Rev. Ng will preach at Richmond Emmanuel Church for both 8:30a.m. and 11a.m. services. Then same place for Cantonese Couples Workshop and Mandarin Couples Workshop at 3p.m. and 7:30p.m.. Rev. Ng will then go to Victoria for the first Wedlock Day there on Monday and go back to Hong Kong Tuesday. Please pray for the protection and health of Rev. Ng in this snowy weather.

Prayer items today:

Urgent Prayers for one of our Anglican Mission's bishop, the Rt. Rev. John Miller, who got a report a few days ago 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!
