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 18

Please read Isaiah 18 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.)

Bible Study

1. Wrong timing and alliance
Cush, ancient Ethiopia and modern Sudan, was south of Egypt. It ruled all of Egypt at that time. The king of Cush sent messengers to Israel to make an alliance against Assyria. Here, like the other chapters is about the prophecy of the downfall of other nations and to give the Israelites hope of their future if they returned to God.

Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush,
which sends envoys by sea in papyrus boats over the water.
Go, swift messengers, to a people tall and smooth-skinned,
to a people feared far and wide,
and aggressive nation of strange speech,
whose land is divided by rivers. Isaiah 18: 1-2

2. God does thing in His own time
It was not human powers that ultimately defeated the Assyrian power. it was in God's own time as describes from verses 3 to 6.

All you people of the world, you who live on the earth,
when a banner is raised on the mountains, you will see it,
and when a trumpet sounds, you will hear it... Isaiah 18: 3-6
3. When God's time comes
Following the Assyrian defeat, the people of Cush would bring gifts to Jerusalem.

the gifts will be brought to Mount Zion, the place of the Name of the Lord Almighty. Isaiah 18: 7

My Spiritual Journal

What I received from Jesus today is: Not your way and time!

Lots of time we are worried about things don't come our way or not happening in our own time. What I got from Jesus today is that it is always that things do not happen in our own way. We need to have that kind of trust to God own timing and know more about His way of doing things. If He tells you then you do it. If He doesn't tell you then you need to be patient and trust Him solely.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be more closer to you that we would not have all those unnecessary questions of asking the "why" but to wait for your "how" and just do it. And please teach us to be patient to wait for your time to come. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
