DAY 30 (2017) - Are You Envious Because I Am Generous?! (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."

The Word (Psalm 18:7-15; Proverbs 6:6-11; Exodus 10:1-12:13
Matthew 20:1-28)

       Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"


       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmax47l2hLU

      My Listening
     Jesus says, "Are you envious because I am generous?"

      Is that talking about you?

      Today's most striking message is about how workers envious because their boss is generous to other people.

      "It's not fair!", this saying happens quite often in families, work place and 
      churches. "It's not fair that he treats that person better than me. I have served him longer than that guy!" "It's not fair that my father loves my younger brother than me!"

      Today's all passages help us to go back to the sovereignty of God and the pride and hardened heart of human kind. We need to acknowledge that we are not humble enough that we can not worship and serve God as we should be. The consequence is we are always comparing with other people. Envious! 

     If we are willing to worship God and Jesus is Lord and King, how come people could challenge God's generosity and thinking that God is not fair, the pastor is not fair, parents are not fair, teachers are not fair....

     May we follow God's generosity to see people and things as good, to appreciate and praise other people rather than act as judge envious other people!
      
      Dear Lord Jesus,
      Help us to be more and more generous and not envy any more. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

     Reflect on these questions:
     1. Do you think you have this problem of "envious"?

2. What is the next step for you to appreciate people more and not to envious other people ?

     3. What have you got from Jesus today?

       Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"


       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmax47l2hLU

      My Listening
      Today's all passages give us a clear picture of the life or death difference of a hardened heart or a child's heart.

      If you have a hardened heart then you would like Pharaoh missed so many chances to let go of the Israelites. When the disaster is over, like Pharaoh, our hearts would be hardened again, not listening to God's command, not yielding to His lead and always say, "No, No, No. Not me!"

     But when we have a child's heart, then we will experience God as our rock, our stronghold, our castle, our Saviour, our shield and our God. We will say to God each day, "I love you Lord!" Our lives will be blessed because we will be like little child, always want to be in the arms of our father!

     What kind of heart do you have now? Hardened heart? A child's heart?

      
      Dear Lord Jesus,
      Embrace me as your precious child each morning that we can enjoy each day in your protection and provision as our Abba Father. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

     Reflect on these questions:
    1. What kind of heart do you think you have recently?

2. What is the action that you need to have each day in order that you have a child's heart ?

     3. What have you got from Jesus today?
