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 today is: Are you able to detect your sin, then hate your sin?

    All time today I have been thinking of Psalm 36:2!

       In their own eyes they flatter themselves
               too much to detect or hate their sin.

"In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much"!

It means the wicked people always "uplift" themselves, always uplift the "me, me, me" too much! It is a kind of narcissism, and the result is:

1. Unable to detect their sin
    Actually I have been thinking of this word "detect" all day long! I think of the detecting the mine on a mine field, I think of detecting the cancer cell through MRI ....etc. But, usually when we can detect that, most probably is too late!

Are you able to detect you sin?
    

2. Unable to hate their sin
   The problem of wicked people is that even they are able to detect their sin, know that there is a mine, know that there are cancer cells, but they are not willing to "hate" those things which can take their lives. They are not willing to confess their sin, to repent, to take out that sin, to change their lifestyle, and then sooner of later, they become the wicked people the Bible describes! Sad!

Are you a wicked person according to this definition?

How do you know that you are not a wicked person?
Very simple, just like today's passage in the Numbers, Moses and the Israelites were able to receive God's instruction and commands and they just did that!

In Numbers 9:8, Moses did not understand what he should do, then he asked God, he told the Israelites, "Wait a moment, let me ask God first and then I can give you the answer of what you should do!"

Then, God told Moses what he needed to tell the Israelites and then they did that!

It is this kind of close relationship with God that we are not wicked people but righteous people!

Are you a wicked person or a righteous person?


    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help us to be willing to allow the Holy Sprit to shine of us each day so that we are able to detect our sins and that we are willing to hate our sins so that we can experience the power of confession, repentance, renewal and that we can be righteous people to be close to you and can execute your commands.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  

Reflect on these questions:
1. What are those things blocking you between your relationship with Jesus that you cannot detect your sins? What are those things that even you are able to detect but unwilling to hate your sins that Jesus is not your Lord now?

2.   What is your next step ?

3.  What have you heard from Jesus today?
