Today's Reading: 2 Samuel 4
Please read 2 Samuel 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.)

2 Samuel 4: 9

If there is someone who can teach you the secret to face all troubles, I think this person would be the richest person on earth. If there is a book that can teach people the secret to face all troubles and it really works, than this book would be the best seller.

Today when I was reading this chapter waiting for a title, a message from Jesus, He gave me this: Secret to face all troubles. The answer everyone should know is God.

Life is full of color, joy, peace, love and blessings. But it is also full of darkness, unfaithfulness, betrayal and sorrow. It was impossible that the two top leaders of Ish-Bosheth could kill him just like that. Mephibosheth became a cripple because his nurse dropped him on the ground, for she was frightened.

Only David knew what he meant by saying, "As surely as the Lord lives, who has delivered me out of all trouble." Remember, "all trouble"! Not some of the trouble.

We could never know this secret until we have a daily intimate relationship with Jesus! Your church cannot help you, your pastor cannot help you, your friends cannot help you, your family cannot help you, nobody can help you when real trouble comes! Only God! Only the Lord can walk with you through all trouble and turns them into all blessings! Why do people waste all the time in building up all other things but not a daily intimate relationship with God?! Can you do something about that please!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to teach people this secret so that we can follow you to face all troubles and turns them into blessings. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

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!
