The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week then prayerfully remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!

Today's Reading: Job 38

Please read Job 38 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.

Please click the links below to Job 38:
Then the Lord answered Job out of the storm. He said:
"Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?
Brace yourself like a man; I will question you and you shall answer me." Job 38: 1-2(NIV)

What I received from Jesus today is: Wait until God speaks!

Is waiting until God speaks difficult? When you need a decision, do you usually pray until God gives you an answer before you do anything? Well, not to ask God whether you need to have lunch or where to lunch, when to lunch that kind of things that you can decide on your own. But, for lots of decision that you know you need to seek for His answer first.

Let me give you a good example. I have a classmate, Clara Yip, who taught me this important lesson to ask God and wait for God's answer in the early day of my ministry. I think it must be around 1990. She is a superb soprano and I asked her several times to sing in some large size Evangelical meetings. Every time she said, "Silas, thanks for your invitation. Let me pray for a few weeks to wait for God's answer whether He calls me to sing in your meeting." The first time I was OK, the second time not so much and then every single time she talked like that. I was ordained in 1987 but I did not know the importance of waiting until God spoke at that time. I kept on asking myself, "Is that kind of arrogant to tell me that she has a better relationship with God then me? Is that her way of saying no to me and want me not to bother her again next time? ..." Then, after my life change experience of John Stott's word of wisdom to me, I understood at last. I wasted too much time using human wisdom to do God's thing but not asking God first.

So, today I hope and pray that you get the message. Wait until God speaks!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to wait until you speak. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
