Today's Reading: 2 Samuel 22
Please read 2 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.)

Wow! The Lord told me today to ask this question: How Well Do You Know Me?

Then He showed me how well did David knew Him:
1. Who is the Lord?
My rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my refuge, my shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold, my Savior, my lamp, my support, arms me, trains me, broaden me, give me His shield.(vv. 2-4, 29-37)

2. How He saved David?
Shot arrows, bolts of lightning, drew him out of deep waters, rescued him from his powerful enemy, delivered, preserved...(vv. 8-20, 44-46)

3. Why He did that to David and not others?
David was faithful, blameless, pure and humble. (vv. 26-28)

4. How much did David being transformed?
He could have the strength to pursue, crush, beat , pound and trample his strong enemies. (vv. 38-43)

5. How did David say 'thank you'?
Praised Him, exalted Him, sang praises to Him! (vv. 47-51)

How well do you know the Lord? How much can you count His blessings daily? How close are you with Him now? How faithful, pure, blameless and humble are you? How much have you been transformed? How well do you say 'thank you' to Him daily?

Jesus told me just a minute ago that some of you are in deep distress. He asked you to kneel down and pray. Follow David's five steps path to let the Lord to comfort you so that you know you are in His protection. But,

"to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good pleasing and perfect will.(Romans 12: 1-2)"

Praise Him and give thanks to Him, for the Lord is good! I am going to kneel down and pray for you after I post this.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for saving me, protecting me, walking with me and loving me. I will praise your Name and give thanks to you all the days of my life. 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!
