Today's Reading: 1 Kings 3
Please read 1 Kings 3 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.

Then Solomon awoke - and he realized it had been a dream. He returned to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the Lord's covenant and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then he gave a feast for all his court.
1 Kings 3: 15
What I heard from Jesus today is: Fruit of being connected.
How joyful Solomon was after his first encounter with God. It was not like Moses' face to face encounter or his father David's close and intimate dialogue. This encounter was through a dream. Yet he knew that the dream was from God. That's why he offered burnt offerings and fellowship offerings and also gave a feast for all his court. Then the verdict he gave to the two women and the description of how his people were in awe because of his wisdom demonstrated that his encounter with God was real. Just a dream? Well, that should be a good start.
What was the story of your first connection to God: through dream, direct communication or never? What was the fruit after your first encounter with God? How intimate is your relationship with the Lord now?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for giving me wonderful opportunities to come close to you, listen to you, talk to you and learn the importance of 'listen and obey'. Help me to stay close to you each day. 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!

Thinking of the ongoing value of Daily devotions, I ran across this helpful insight: "You can do more than pray, after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed." -John BunyanReplyDelete
