DAY 460 - Enjoy, I'll Pay The Bill

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?

Today's Reading: Joshua 13
Please read Joshua 13 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 13:
I myself will drive them out before the Israelites. Be sure to allocate this land to Israel for an inheritance, as I have instructed you, and divide it as an inheritance among the nine tribes and half of the tribe of Manasseh. Joshua 13: 6-7

To have a daily intimate relationship with Jesus through reading the Bible is so wonderful! Today after reading this chapter Jesus gave me a humorous invitation: Enjoy, I'll pay the bill.

So humorous that I laughed and enjoyed the sweetness of this promise!

Jesus' vision for me is like this: A father promises to pay the bill but the son is too scared to just go into the restaurant to eat. There's doubt of whether the father really will come to pay. Praise the Lord, because that's what He has been teaching me for so many years. However, I always got stuck, delayed or nearly "assassinated." At times, it was because other people did not have that kind of faith. In other times, I believed the task to be too big for me, and I would wonder if He really would come in to pay the bill!

That's the story of Joshua and his leaders. Joshua was very old but there were still very large areas of land that had been promised to give to them, which had not been taken over yet. There were people they should and could have driven out; however, they did not have the courage to do so. The consequence of not taking action by faith is like the spreading of cancer cell!

Let's receive the word from Jesus to you personally now, "Enjoy, I'll pay the bill, don't worry!"

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to have a total trust in you that I am certain that you are going to pay the bill . 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 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!
