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 4:1-8Genesis 11:1-13:5; Matthew 5:1-26, Proverbs 1:20-23)

 My Listening
     The topic I received from Jesus is: "Call on God, God will bless; Make your name great, scattered and confused "

    Today's catch is very rich! I copied ten pages during TWA and also drew a map! 

    From Abram's father Terah starting his journey from Ur(that time's Shinar area and later Babylon) to Canaan but stopped at Harran and died, then Abram heard God's call and went to Canaan's Shechem and Bethel. Then because of Abram's little faith, from Bethel to Negev, a place of desert, then little faith again from Negev to Egypt, then little faith again and nearly lost his own wife Sarai! If not for God to show forth His mighty hand, it wold be a big mess! After that Abram had a U-turn, back to Negev and then back to the original starting point where God appeared to him - Bethel.

          When I look at the map I drew today and I see the story of human beings, exactly the theme I received today: Call on God, God will bless; Make your name great, scattered and confused.

           1. Call on God, God will bless
          This we can clearly see in to today's Psalm, how Abram experienced God in Genesis and Jesus' Beatitudes in Matthew. When you are willing to call on God, you will surely experience God's continuous blessings.

          2. Make your name great, scattered and confused
              This we can see in today's Genesis of the Babel Tower story, the little faith of Abram, how people refuse to listen and disregard God's advice in today's Proverbs. They were being scattered and confused by God's mighty act! All those disaster and fear is because of their stiff-neck and disobedience.

          So, what would be the picture of your life? 
          Would that be "Call on God, God will bless", or "Make your name great, scattered and confused"?

 
    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help me to be close to you and be willing to call on your name each day  so that I can have your blessings and that because of my faithfulness, many people will be blessed by you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  

Reflect on these questions:
1. Do you belong to "Call on God, God will bless" or "Make your name great, scattered and confused" lately ?

2. How can you live out "Call on God, God will bless"?

3.  What have you heard from Jesus today?
