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 55

Please read Isaiah 55 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

This chapter shows the coming Messiah is and how everybody should come to Him. In echo to Jesus says in Matthew 11: 28 - 30:

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Isaiah prophesies that God has made the Messiah a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander of the peoples. And one of the most famous verses in the Bible:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways."
declares the Lord.
"As the heaven are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55: 8-9

How can we be willing to have Jesus as our commander and follow His ways but not our own ways? How can we seek the Lord and call on Him everyday to make sure that we are on His ways and not our ways?

These are the things that the Lord is challenging you today. What is your response?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: My ways higher than your ways!

Isaiah 55: 8-9 is one of my most favourite golden verses in the Bible. I know that but sometimes I just can't help to do things my ways and not His ways. Especially when a storm comes you might receive bullets in every direction and you forget to call the headquarter to ask your Commander what you need to do. Most of the time when a "spiritual warfare" happens we are cut of from communication for a while. How can we be cut off from communication from our Commander?

Well, fear, self-righteousness, pride, anger, insecurity, burn-out, tired, laziness, evil thoughts, confusion and many more possibilities. So sad!

Jesus says to you today, "My ways higher than your ways!"
What have you got from Jesus?

Come to Jesus everyday and wait for His thoughts and His ways before you move your next step! If not, you may step into a minefield and blow your hands and feet off!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be sure to wait for your instruction, your thoughts, your way and your command before we move everyday. You are our Commander, lead us Lord. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
