DAY 471 - Why Our Children Do Not Serve The Lord?!

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 24
Please read Joshua 24 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 24:
Israel served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had experienced everything the Lord had done for Israel. Joshua 24: 31

Jesus showed me a very painful picture of what happened to the second generation of those Israelites. Even for that famous passage of Joshua, "But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."(v. 15) And with that three times declaration of the Israelites to serve the Lord(v. 18, 21 and 24), it recorded very clearly that their second generation did not serve the Lord. Why?

I got the answer three days ago when I was having daily devotion for Athan and Vance. It's been one year and eleven months non-stop for me as a discipler to help them to build up an intimate personal relationship with Jesus through daily devotion. One to a few times a week, every time 30 minutes. Vance and Athan could not hear anything from Jesus for two weeks and they were quite disappointed and did not know why. Praise the Lord they got reconnected again with Jesus and both of them could hear what Jesus told them again! Vance said, "Nobody can tell me who Jesus is until I experience him personally. It's so simple, five minutes reading his Word and He speaks. But, I don't even want to give him five minutes!"

If you have not experienced Jesus before I don't think you are reading this. But, how about your children? What have you done to help your children so that they can experience Jesus personally? I lost the chance to help our elder son Ignatius but thanks to God's mercy He experienced Jesus through other channels, not me many years ago. But, the Lord asked me not to let this opportunity to go again and I need to try all my best to help Athanasius and our Godson Vance to experience Jesus personally. Please pray for me that I can successfully helping them to have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus! It is so difficult! But it is so important!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to be able to help Athan and Vance to build up a daily intimate personal relationship with you. 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 has prostate cancer recently. 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!
