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
3.   Sing a song to praise God (you are welcome to use "Father, I adore you" which I have been singing every morning for the past 20 years or your own choice to praise God)

          Father, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.

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 shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:


     “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 and having Jesus as my Lord. 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 gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

    Today's passage:
    

A psalm of David.

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
    Who may live on your holy mountain?

The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
    but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things

    will never be shaken.

     Psalm 15:1-5



    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 to Jesus as you listen to him.    

    My Listening
    The topic I received from Jesus is 
Who will never be shaken?

    Today's Psalm 15 is very interesting and important!

    It's like the common question of chicken first or egg first!

    Who can be with God and live with God?
    The answer in this Psalm are those people who live in the standard of God. And those are the people who will never be shaken!

    But, as human beings, who can really live in the standard of God? This Psalm also gives us the answer are those who are willing to be with God and live with God each day, those are the people who will never be shaken!

    May you belongs to that special group of children of God who longs to be with God and live with God each day that you are able to live out the standard of God, to be Christlike and that you will never be shaken! Not COVID-19, not any kind of sufferings, you will never be shaken!

    
    
     Dear Lord Jesus,
    
Help us to have that 
longings to be with you and live with you each day that we are able to live out the standard of God, to be Christlike and that we will never be shaken
 
In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
       
    
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration have you received from today's catch and what have you heard from Jesus now?
      
      2.  What is your next step to be more closer to Jesus?

第 15 天(2021年) - 誰能永不動搖? (大家可到FaceBook (silastyng)看此博客的錄影 )

 



安靜

1.  停下來. 靜一靜

2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安, 感受主的臨在, 呼出你的憂慮


讚美及感恩
1.  思想最近使你開心歡笑的時刻
2.  為那些時刻及有關的人感恩

知罪,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. 求聖靈光照,使你知罪,願意認罪悔改 
     "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侍奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌(詩篇 15)
聖經網頁: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=psalm+10&version=CUV


今日的經文:

耶 和 華 啊 , 誰 能 寄 居 你 的 帳 幕 ? 誰 能 住 在 你 的 聖 山 ?

就 是 行 為 正 直 、 做 事 公 義 、 心 裡 說 實 話 的 人 。

他 不 以 舌 頭 讒 謗 人 , 不 惡 待 朋 友 , 也 不 隨 夥 毀 謗 鄰 里 。

他 眼 中 藐 視 匪 類 , 卻 尊 重 那 敬 畏 耶 和 華 的 人 。 他 發 了 誓 , 雖 然 自 己 吃 虧 也 不 更 改 。

他 不 放 債 取 利 , 不 受 賄 賂 以 害 無 辜 。 行 這 些 事 的 人 必 永 不 動 搖 。

詩篇 15:1-5


現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。


 我的聆聽
   我從主耶穌領受主題是誰能永不動搖?

    今日的詩篇是非常有趣而重要的信息,很像一個雞先定蛋先的問題!

    誰能有神同在,與神同住? 就是生活行為能活出神公義標準的人。

    誰能生活行為能活出神公義標準的人? 就是能有神同在,與神同住的人。


    這些人就會永不動搖!

    願望你因着每天有神同在,與神同住,因而能在生活行中活出神公義的標準,因着你能如此的活出神公義的標準,你更能每天有神同在,與神同住,無論遇到甚麼,必永不動搖!

    
     親愛的主耶穌
     幫助我們每天有你同在,與你同住,無論遇到甚麼,必永不動搖,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。  
      
     省察問題
 1. 今日的信息對你有何啓發?  主耶穌現在對你説甚麽話?

 2. 下一步是什麼行動?
   
     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。



讚美

我要向山舉目

    Today's passage:
    

Psalm 14

Denunciation of Godlessness

To the leader. Of David.

Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;
    there is no one who does good.

The Lord looks down from heaven on humankind
    to see if there are any who are wise,
    who seek after God.

They have all gone astray, they are all alike perverse;
    there is no one who does good,
    no, not one.

Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers
    who eat up my people as they eat bread,
    and do not call upon the Lord?

There they shall be in great terror,
    for God is with the company of the righteous.
You would confound the plans of the poor,
    but the Lord is their refuge.

O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!
    When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,
    Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.

Psalm 14:1-7


    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 to Jesus as you listen to him.    

    My Listening
    The topic I received from Jesus is:  
I hope you are not "the fool"!

You won't think that you are one of the fools stated in today's Psalm, right? I do hope that you are not! 

Well, let's see what kind of character the fool got:
1. Persons who live as if there is no God. (v. 1)
2. Persons who are morally corrupted in all kind of ways. (v. 1, 3)
3. Persons who rely on their own ideas to determine right or wrong. (v.2)
4. Persons who does not pursue any kind of relationship with God or pray for his help.
(v. 2, 4)
5. Persons who devour God's people as men eat bread. (v. 4, 6)

If you are one of them then you need to repent. If you are being hurt by this kind of people then you need to know God has a promise here that He is going to restore everything for you and that you will rejoice and be glad in His time.

    
     Dear Lord Jesus,
    
Help us to know if we are one of the fools and if so help us to repent. And, if we are hurt by those fools then one day you will restore everything for us that we can rejoice and be glad. 
 
In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
       
    
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration have you received from today's catch and what have you heard from Jesus now?
      
      2.  What is your next step to be more closer to Jesus?
