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: Psalm 42

Please read Psalm 42 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.

我的心你要稱頌耶和華 Praise the Lord, O My Soul

Please click the links below to Psalm 42:

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
Psalm 42: 5, 11

What I received from Jesus today is: Where is your God?

Yesterday I shared about a lady who could not sleep and lived in sadness, darkness and discouragement. Something happened just less than ten hours I posted my blog. I called her and she said she had never had such a good sleep before. I don't know how many of you prayed for her, but thank you because your prayers gave her a miracle!

The psalmist in the deep sorrow of his sufferings he got words from his enemies to mock him of where God was. Why God didn't come to save him and to lift him out of those sufferings. The worst thing was that he questioned about why God left him and allowed those bitter words from his enemies to sink into his soul that he was downcast and disturbed. What are you going to do in this kind of situation?

Do you think you can turn your eyes to how the psalmist did? Do you think you can say what the psalmist say?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (v. 5, 11)

That's the key to get out of darkness is that you have God daily as your Savior and your God. You pants for His words and presence just like the deer pants for streams of water! Have that thirst for God and you will be OK. Actually, more than OK, in fact, very good!

So, where is your God? What's you answer?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be sure that we have you as our Savior and God. Lead us into that thirst for a daily intimate relationship with you just like a deer pants for streams of water. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
