Please click the links below to 2 Kings 15:
Jesus led me to visualize how God sees this chapter. I saw God standing there seeing the history in this chapter unveiled. King after king being killed without any record of doing good things except the two kings of Judah Azariah and Jotham. These two kings had just a line mentioning that they did what was right in the eyes of the Lord but still offering sacrifices to other gods. All the other six kings of Israel were described as did evil in the eyes of the Lord. And then we know that the Northern kingdom Israel was finished and was conquered by Assyria. They were finished without saying a word, "Help us Lord!"
Jesus led me to read Isaiah 40: 15, 21-23:
15Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust.
21 Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? 22It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; 23 who brings kings to nothing, and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.
Do you have some kind of dream to be on top of something, someone. Like CEO, President, top sales, top ... so what! Even those people were kings and God was watching them one by one falling down because of their ignorance and pride!
May the words from Isaiah 40: 27-31 give you some inspiration:
Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, (AJ)
"My way is hidden from the LORD, (AK)
and my right is disregarded by my God"? 28
Have you not known? Have you not heard?The LORD is(AL)
the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; (AM)
his understanding is unsearchable. 29
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. 30
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; 31
they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings(AO)
like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know how to wait for you so my strength can be renewed and that I can mount up with wings like eagles. In Jesus name we 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!
