 安靜

1.  停下來. 靜一靜

2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安, 享受神同在, 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  https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/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。」


3.  司徒德牧師每天早上的 "活像基督"祈禱 John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

   "天父,求你使我今天活在你的同在中,你一天比一天更喜悦我。
    主耶穌,求你使我今天能背起我的十字架去跟隨你。
    聖靈,求你在今天充滿我,使你的果子能彰顯在我的生命中: 仁愛,喜樂,和平,忍耐,恩慈,良善,信實,温柔及節制。"
             

親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌
 
今日親親親爸父經文連結: http://twa.pastoralcareschool.org/

親親爸父經文:(詩篇 30:6-12; 利未記 13:1-59; 馬可福音  6:1-29;  箴言 10:10)  


      至 於 我 , 我 凡 事 平 順 便 說 : 我 永 不 動 搖 。
耶 和 華 啊 , 你 曾 施 恩 , 叫 我 的 江 山 穩 固 ; 你 掩 了 面 , 我 就 驚 惶 。
耶 和 華 啊 , 我 曾 求 告 你 ; 我 向 耶 和 華 懇 求 , 說 :
我 被 害 流 血 , 下 到 坑 中 , 有 甚 麼 益 處 呢 ? 塵 土 豈 能 稱 讚 你 , 傳 說 你 的 誠 實 麼 ?
10 耶 和 華 啊 , 求 你 應 允 我 , 憐 恤 我 ! 耶 和 華 啊 , 求 你 幫 助 我 !
11 你 已 將 我 的 哀 哭 變 為 跳 舞 , 將 我 的 麻 衣 脫 去 , 給 我 披 上 喜 樂 ,
12 好 叫 我 的 靈 ( 原 文 是 榮 耀 ) 歌 頌 你 , 並 不 住 聲 。 耶 和 華 ─ 我 的 神 啊 , 我 要 稱 謝 你 , 直 到 永 遠 !
  詩篇 30:6-12

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  
     今日我從主耶穌領受的主題是:  神使你的江山穩固!

    今日讀四段經文有很大的挑戰,詩篇教導我們不住聲的讚美那位使我們江山穏固,哀哭變跳舞的主, 利未記告訴我們神賦予祭司決定潔浄與否的權力,箴言警告我們惡人必致傾倒。

    但馬可福音卻記載了大能的施洗約翰被希律王斬頭,江山沒有穩固,哀哭沒變跳舞,神賦予的權柄消失,惡人得逞!

    你想施洗約翰被劊子手帶去斬頭的時候有否大聲呼求説: 神啊,救我?

    抑或他充滿喜樂的説:感謝主,終於大功告成了!

    聖經完全沒有提及施洗約翰當時的心態,但我相信耶穌在客西馬尼園呼求免死的祈禱就是施洗約翰當時的心態: 我父啊,倘若可行,求你叫這杯離開我; 然而,不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。(馬太福音26:39)

     主對我們的應許是使我們江山穏固,哀哭變跳舞!

     但若主容許江山沒有穩固,哀哭沒變跳舞,神賦予的權柄消失,惡人得逞的時候,你會可以好像主耶穌那様的祈禱嗎? 當這張試卷來到,你會合格過關嗎?

                 
     親愛的主耶穌, 
 感謝你帶領我們使我們江山穩固,求你使我們即使江山不穏固,惡人得逞的時候都能感受你的臨在,順服在主的旨意中,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。

Please click this link for today's Time with Abba one year Bible four passages:


Nicky Gumbel's Bible in one year today:


Bible in one year by Nicky Gumbel:



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
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.
          Jesus, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Spirit, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
      

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method) 

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 sins 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."

3.  John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

(Please click this link to see how God used John Stott to change my life:https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/07/

           "Heavenly Father, I pray that this day I may live in your presence and please you more and more.

             Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.

             Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."


The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 30:6-12, Leviticus 13:1-59; Mark  6:1-29; Proverbs 10:10)


    Today's key passage:
     When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.
To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

Psalm 30:6-12


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: You made my royal mountain stand firm! 

     Today's four passages give us a lot of challenges, Psalm teaches us we need to praise non-stop to the one who makes our royal mountain stand firm, who turns our wailing into dancing, Leviticus teaches us the absolute power of a priest to decide what is clean and unclean, Proverbs gives us warning that the wicked will come to ruin.

     But, Mark seems telling us the reverse situation, the anointed and powerful John the Baptist was being beheaded, his royal mountain did not stand firm, his wailing did not turn into dancing, his God given authority was gone and the wicked prevailed!

     Do you think when John the Baptist was being led by the executioner he would cry out: O God, save me!

     Or, he would joyfully say: Praise the Lord! Mission accomplished!

     Well, the Bible does not mention about the attitude of John the Baptist at that very critical moment. But, I think that the prayer Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane should be the same as John the Baptist prayed at that time: My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will." (Matthew 26:39)

    The promise of God today is that He will give our royal mountain stand firm, wailing turns to become dancing!

    But if our royal mountain does not stand firm, our wailing does not turn into dancing, our God given authority vanish and the wicked prevail, would you pray like Jesus did?

     When this examination paper comes, do you think you can pass this examination paper?

    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help us to be able to feel your presence and to obey your command even our wailing does not turn into dancing, our God given authority vanish and the wicked prevailed.  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, to be holy - that is to do what Jesus wants you to do and not to do what Jesus wants you not to do?
