Today's Reading: 1 Samuel 7
Please read 1 Samuel 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 1 Samuel 7:
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, "saying, "Thus far has the Lord helped. us." So the Philistines were subdued and did not invade Israelite territory again.
1 Samuel 7: 12-13

When the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, then the Lord gave them to the hands of all kinds of foreign kings and rulers: Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram Naharaim(Judge 3: 8); Eglon king of Moab(Judge 3: 12); Jabin, king of Hazor(Judge 4: 2); Midianites(Judge 6: 1); Philistines and Ammonites(Judge 10: 7) and from Judge 10 to 1 Samual 7 it was the Philistines who caused the most troubles to the Israelites. Why they were finally subdued? What had they done to make this total victory happened?

Very simple:
1. A Godly leader who can hear God and led according to God's command- Samuel
2. Build a momentum of a God-centred community(20 years!)
3. Then get rid of all the idols
4. Fast and pray and let the Samuel to lead

What happen in this modern age:
1. We lack of Godly leaders who can listen and obey God
2. We do not know how to wait and to build up the momentum of a God-centred community
3. Christians are worshipping all kinds of foreign idols
4. Christians do not know the power of pray, rarely pray and never fast!

So, what do you need to do?
1. You need to follow a group of Godly leaders who can listen and obey God
2. You need to stay in one church for as long as you can for it needs time to build up a momentum
3. You need to know whether you are worshipping some foreign idols(gods) and throw them away
4. You need to pray as much as you can and join our 40 days fasting and prayers

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead me to have a victorious life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Twitter version:

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!
