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 a challenging choice for you: "What is your source of God's gifts and power?"

        What I received from Jesus in today's is a question and also a challenge.

     1. A question
         Jesus give you a question about whether you have God's gifts and powerful to witness His glory recently.
      
      2. A challenge
          If you say you have received His gifts and power recently, then where is the source of your power?

            We can see in today's Psalm 64:1-10 of how God heard the Psalmist complaint and protected his life. Hide him from those wicked people and even shot his enemies with God's arrows.

            Yes, that's how in yesterday and today's Judges that Samson had that kind of God's gifts and power. And, the source of his power was in his hair! Once his hair being cut and he was powerless!

            Today's John 2: 24 talks about many people saw the signs of Jesus was performing and believed but Jesus "would not entrust himself to them because he knew what was in each person"!

             Yet, Samson chose to entrust his woman who lied to him many times and he was nearly being killed because of this woman! He knew that the source of his power was in his hair and yet he did not cherish!

             This morning Jesus asked me personally, "Do you know what is the source of your gifts and power recently?"

             I told Him, "Yes, I know. It is the coming to have Time with Abba and worship you every morning non-stop for the past two year and four months! Thank you Lord for your showing your favor to me!"

             Jesus then said, "Don't let anyone or anything to take that away."

             What is the source of your gifts and power recently?

             

     Dear Lord Jesus, 
     Challenge us today whether we know where our gifts and power comes from and help us to cherish that so that you can use us to glorify Your Mighty Name. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 
                    
      Reflect on these questions:
   1.  How is your spiritual strength recently? Do you know where is the source of your gifts and power comes from?

    2.  How can you come close to that source that Jesus prepares for you each day that you can have a better chance to enjoy His presence and to live each day glorifying His Mighty Name?
    
     3. What have you received from Jesus today?

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