DAY 117 (2018) - Human help is worthless. In God we will gain VICTORY! (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."

 My Listening
      The message I got today from our Lord Jesus Christ is a challenging choice for you: "Human help is worthless. In God we will gain VICTORY!"

        What I received from Jesus in today's Psalm 60:11-12 is that all human help is worthless, in God we will gain victory.

             The past few days when we started Judges, I have been using "arrow" up and "arrow" down to show "peaceful" and "besieged":
             Judges 3:11  Othniel brought the Israelites to obey God, they got 40 years of peace

             Judges 3:14  Othniel died, those Israelites deserted God, they were besieged by king of Moab for 18 years

              Judges 3:30.  Ehud brought the Israelites back to God, they got 80 years of peace

               Judges 4:3   Ehud died, those Israelites deserted God, they were besieged by king of Canaan for 20 years

              Judges 5:31 Deborah brought the Israelites back to God, they got 40 years of peace


               Then in today's Judges 7:1 - 16 God spoke to Gideon five times and then gave him a sign by leading him to an appointed place, exact timing by listening to the sharing of a dream by two Midianites. Then, Gideon had faith and courage to use a God-led strategy to win a big war.  

               Many people think that we need some important people to help us to get through crisis, in fact, today's message is that only in God we can gain victory.

               Do you believe that?   

     Dear Lord Jesus, 
     Open our eyes that we can be able to see your mighty power and that only in you can give us true victory. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 
                    
      Reflect on these questions:
   1.  Do you really think human help is useless?


    2.  How have you experienced the victory when you are willing to rely on God only?
    
     3. What have you received from Jesus today?


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