Today's Reading: 1 Samuel 22
Please read 1 Samuel 22 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 22:
From there David went to Mizpah in Moab and said to the king of Moab, "Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?" 1 Samuel 22:3

Do you know when to wait, when to stop, when to move and when to dash? We need to learn from David of his daily intimate relationship with God. He just waited there and do nothing until he was told. Even all those priests who helped him were being killed, and he could still be that calm, responsible and hopeful. Do you have that kind of relationship with Jesus that you can do that when you are in your deep fear or uncertainty?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Teach me to know this important lesson of waiting for your order. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

**Praise the Lord that I had a wonderful time with Rev. Nicky Gumble and his wife Pippa in their home today. I taught them how to make Chinese tea and Nicky taught me Alpha and beyond!

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!


  1. Thank you, Bishop Silas, for persevering for 519 days now in mentoring us in an intimate relationship with Jesus: “The person who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.” - A. Murray

  2. Thanks Ed! I try to mobilize but few believe in the power of prayers! Our weekly Saturday prayer meeting have a slight growth from around 12 to 22 and we still have 40 percents of empty slots in the 6th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign! Though I deeply believe that if I did not start this blog to make sure that I have a daily intimate relationship with Jesus and if we did not have those 538 days of prayers I might not be able to run a good race for Jesus.
    Ed, could you ask your people to fill their names in the empty slot and pray for us please?!
    And for those who are reading this comment please try your best to join and pray! Please!
