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: Isaiah 7

Please read Isaiah 7 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.)

Please click the links below to Isaiah 7:
"If you do not stand firm in your faith,
you will not stand at all."
Again the Lord spoke to Ahaz, "Ask the Lord your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights."
But Ahaz said, "I will not ask; I will not put the Lord to the test."
Then Isaiah said, "Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of men? Will you try the patience of my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel."
I Isaiah 7: 9-14

What I received from Jesus today is: Not stand firm in your faith, not stand at all!

Jesus revealed to me a secret to stand firm against all kinds of crisis just like the crisis king Ahaz was facing:
1. Stand firm in our faith.
2. What does it means by stand firm in our faith? Have the relationship with God that we can hear what God says and do what God wants us to do. If God wanted Ahaz to ask for a sign then not asking means not stand firm in faith. If God did not tell Ahaz to ask for a sign and he asked then he put God to test. We need to be able to have the gift of discernment of what we need to do and what need not to do.
3. The most important sign from God to us is the presence of God in the coming of the Messiah, Emmanuel. Jesus already comes and what we need to do is to be as close as we can to be with Jesus each day that we are in the Sign God gives to all people.
Are you in this sign daily? Are you able to stand firm in your faith of being in a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus? If not, you will not stand at all!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to stand firm in our faith that we can be in you daily. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
