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 topic I received from Jesus is: "Vision, Action, Mission"

    1. Vision
       Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint"
             Abraham received three visions that needed his action:
      a. Circumcision: every male who is eight days old must be circumcised.
             b.  Have a son: Abraham was 99, Sarah was 90, and they needed to make love and had a son.
         c. Very fruitful: They did not even have a son, how come very fruitful.

    2. Action
            Please think of how difficult it is to have that three visions to have action, it is nearly impossible!
            a.  Circumcision: to have every male to go through circumcision and that they were wiling to do that, that is impossible!
             b.  Have a son: a 99 years old man to make love with his wife, even if he wanted, he did not have that strength to do that. And, to have his 90 years old wife to be willing to make love with him. I think she would say, "Don't even think of that! Don't touch me!" So, another impossible!
           c. Very fruitful: After 99 years old to have more sons! Impossible!

           With these three "impossible", Abraham really took action and did it. Also, according to Genesis 25:1-2, Abraham had taken another wife, Keturah and had six sons.  That's why God told Sarah, "Is anything too hard for the Lord?"

    3. Mission
        God knew that beforehand that Abraham would take the visions into action. So God gave him a new name, from Abram, meaning exalted father to Abraham, meaning father of many nations. And, God gave Sarah a new name, from Sarai, meaning my lady, to Sarah, meaning noble woman. Because Abraham did an act of faith that no one dares to do, he becomes the father of faith, the father of many nations!

        Could you follow Abraham's good model to live a life of vision, action and mission?

    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help me to follow Abraham's good model to live a life of vision, action and mission. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  

Reflect on these questions:
1. Do you have any vision from the Lord lately? Is there is, what is it?

2. Do you have faith to take action on your vision? If you do not, what do you lack?

3.  What have you heard from Jesus today?
