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 45

Please read Isaiah 45 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

Something very unusual happens in this chapter. Cyrus was not a worshiper of God but is called "his anointed," (vv. 4-5), the same title God gave to His Son, Jesus Christ. Why?

God is really an out-of-the-box God! How can you imagine He used King Cyrus to do His Kingdom work and gave Cyrus a "kingdom" name? Impossible!

God used Cyrus to set Israel free from captivity so that God could continues to use Israel to reveal his plan of salvation. King Cyrus, king of the Persian Empire (559-530 B.C.), captured Babylon in 539 B.C. and soon after that issued the decree permitting the Jews to return to their land, including Jerusalem as describes in Ezra 1.

God has His own way to do things and lots of time is out-of-the-box!
How can we follow God to do His out-of-the-box ministry?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: Out-of-the-box God!
Jesus leads me to think of all kinds of out-of-the-box possibilities to do His Kingdom ministry. We always label certain people and reject other people because we like to be a "judge" and love to judge other people.

How can this out-of-the-box miraculous act help you to join God's out-of-the-box team to extend His mighty Kingdom?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Open our eyes to see how you do all kinds of out-of-the-box miraculous acts so that we can join you to follow your way to do your Kingdom ministry. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
