DAY 92 (2018) - No Excuse! Follow Me Right Away! (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, Time with Abba (Psalm 47:1-4; Deuteronomy 21:1-22:30; Luke  9:51-10:12Proverbs 12:11)

      My Listening
           The message I got today from our Lord Jesus Christ is "No excuse! Follow me right away!".

               This is the second part of yesterday's devotion title "How can you completely destroy your seven Canaanite nations?" If you have not read yesterday's devotion, please do so before you read on.

               Today's Jesus led me to focus on his call to two men and they have their own excuses. Jesus needs workers for the harvest but most people including me and you have our own excuses.

               If you take a look at what I scribed today and you found out I highlighted six deadly sins out of the seven in my journal. 

               Well, have you aware that it is because we cannot drive out our own Canaanite nations, somewhat similar to the seven deadly sins that we are unwilling or unable to follow Jesus and to listen and obey to Him daily. Yes, daily!

               If you are able to be as close as you can to Jesus as Jesus was as close as He was to the Heavenly Father each day, then you won't be swallowed by the seven Canaanite nations and that is the worldly culture.

               You will have less and less excuses not to follow Jesus each day!

               Be with Him before it is too late!

               
     Dear Lord Jesus,
    Help me to be willing to be with you each morning so that I have a better chance to destroy my seven Canaanites nations or the seven deadly sins. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 

 Reflect on these questions:
    1.  Are you willing to recognize that you are not able to drive out the seven deadly sins?


    2.  What are the excuses for you unable to follow Jesus daily?
    
     3. What have you received from Jesus today?

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