DAY 475 - Dad, help!

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: Judges 4
Please read Judges 4 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 Judges 4:
Because he had nine hundred iron chariots and had cruelly oppressed the Israelites for twenty years, they cried to the Lord for help. Judges 4: 3

What I heard from Jesus today made me cry: Dad, help!

The Israelites were cruelly being oppressed for twenty year(Judges 4: 3) before the Bible recorded that they started to cry to the Lord for help, "Dad, help us!" Why not sooner?

In similar situations, they were under oppression for eight years(Judges 3: 8-9); then they cried out for help, "Dad, help us!"

In other situations, they were under oppression for eighteen years(Judges 3: 14-15); then they cried out for help, "Dad, help us!"

From eight to eighteen, then to twenty they still could not learn their lesson! Each time when they cried out for help, God sent a Judge to help them - Othniel, Ehud and then Deborah. When their problem was solved, then once again they did evil in the eyes of the Lord(3: 7, 3: 12 and 4: 1).

Why can't we have a daily intimate relationship with the Lord and say, "Dad, tell me what I need to do today. Dad, I can't do this today, can you help me? Dad, thank you for your presence! Dad ...

If you do not have this kind of weakness, then you need to understand that others have this problem. You need not to be discouraged and angry about their weaknesses. Ask the Lord to raise you up to be a judge like Othniel, Ehud and Deborah to fight a good fight for God and His people!

Thank you for these two powerful words today! Help me to be in you and with you daily. Raise me up to be like Othniel, Ehud and Deborah and help me to raise up more people to be like them to fight a good fight for you so that we will not be under oppression but live in freedom daily. 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!
