DAY 143 (2018) - From Oppressors to Servers (Please click here for English podcast)

Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in you:

     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”


2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

 My Listening
            The message I got today from our Lord Jesus Christ is: "從欺壓人變成服侍人"

           Do you know you might be an "oppressor"?

               What? I am an "oppressor"?

               Well, that's how the bloody scene came in today's 2 Samuel 2:14-17 and 3:33-39 of how those generals killing each other, first for fund then for revenge!

                That's how today's Psalm 72:1-7 reminding a king never to become an oppressor and to have God created mountains and hills to bring prosperity to the people and the fruit of righteousness but not a "killing field" like what it happened in today's 2 Samuel.

                 Jesus demonstrated to his apostles of being a leader needs to put down the mindset of "I am greater" and to misuse their gifts to become power struggles over other people!

                Yet, authority and power 權勢 always pull a good leader, a good pastor to become an oppressor or even a wicked "devil"!

               Let's humble ourselves to be willing to wash others feet and to be willing for other people to serve us washing our feet so that we can encourage each other, to serve each other with true love and to be peacemakers!

             
     Dear Lord Jesus, 
     Help us not to become oppressors but encouragers and peacemakers. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 
                   
      Reflect on these questions:
   1.  Do you think sometimes you act as an oppressor? 

    2.   How can you remove that character from your soul?

3. What have you received from Jesus today?

    Praise and Thanksgiving
Let's give thanks for God with us. Let us praise Him:

認罪悔改  (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method 轉位靈修法) http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  求聖靈在你生命中工作
      "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔, 
        求你幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:
     「親愛的主耶穌,感謝你為我的罪釘死在十字架上,我願意在你面前承認我的罪(凡聖靈光照到的,請逐一說出),求你用你的寶血赦免我的罪,我願意打開心門讓你作我的救主,求你救贖我,我願意一生跟隨你讓你作我生命的主,求你帶領我。聖靈,求你充滿我,使我得著恩賜及力量去事奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」



親親爸父, 聆聽主話(詩篇 72:1-7; 撒母耳記下 2:12-3:39; 約翰福音 13:1-30; 箴言 15:29-30)
