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 28

Please read Isaiah 28 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

In chapters 28 - 33, Isaiah moved back from the prophecy of the end-time to his own time about Israel (here called Ephraim, the name of one of the nation's predominant tribes) and Judah. There are three points for us to learn here:
  1. The sin and spiritual rebellion of the two nations(vv. 1- 15): Isaiah harshly condemns their sin and spiritual rebellion and reveals God's coming judgment.
  2. The cornerstone(vv.16- 22) : The cornerstone is the main stone in a building's foundation. It points to the Lord himself as faith in God alone is the only source of true security and the only firm foundation and hope for salvation.
  3. Hear God's voice (vv. 23-29): This is a poetic parable to describe God as a farmer. His actions are perfect for growing God's people who will be faithful examples of a right relationship with God. In order to be in this relationship, we must learn to listen to his voice.
"Listen and hear my voice;
pay attention and hear what I say.
When a farmer plows for planting, does he plows continually?
Does he keep on breaking up and harrowing the soil?
Isaiah 28: 23-24

My Spiritual Journal

What I received from Jesus today is: Listen and hear my voice!

To solve the critical situation of the coming destruction of Israel and Judah. God turns their focus to the cornerstone which if God Himself and asked them to learn to listen and hear His voice. That's so simple and yet impossible!

It's a call to spend time in his Word and in prayer, nothing more and nothing less! But they didn't follow and their nations were being totally destroyed!

Are you going to be willing to spend time to listen and hear God's voice everyday to avoid same destruction happen to you?

Dear Lord Jesus,
No one wants to have those destruction happen to us. Help us to be able to listen and hear your voice daily. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
