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 37:1-11; Numbers 10:1-11:23; Mark 14:1-21, Proverbs 10:31-32)

 My Listening
     The topic I received  from Jesus today is: What can I give? What can I get?

     The whole day today I have been thinking of the reason for Mark to put that two passages together: The woman who gave that very expensive perfume to anoint Jesus and Judah who betrayed Jesus for money. At last, I got a big inspiration from the Lord!

    
1. What can I give? What can I get?
    Before I was born again in the 70's and 80's I had been living a life of a religious person wanting to get many things from my church but not a true Christian willing to give everything I have to love Jesus and follow Jesus, poor me!

The attitude of "getting" could lead us to follow Judah's path to betray Jesus or Jesus' servants, terrible! 

     What kind of Christian are you?

2. To enjoy "safe pasture" 
    Psalm 37:3 give me a big inspiration:
     Trust in the Lord and do good;
     dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

     When I read the word "safe pasture", I asked myself, "What is safe pasture?"
     Jesus answered me right away, He said,"The pasture the shepherd takes his sheep to is the safe pasture!"

     It is a pity that lots of people are not willing to be led by their shepherds but to find their own "safe pasture"! The result might be falling into the trap Judah fell and become a Judah, sad!

      Are you willing to be led by your shepherd? Do you know who are your shepherds?
3. How do we know we are willing to be led by our shepherds?
    When I asked this question, Jesus asked me to read three passages to have the comparison. It was such a surprise to me!

    Because what I got is that when we are willing to be in the "chains of command" the Lord prepares for us means we are willing to be led by our shepherds and can enjoy "safe pasture"!

    Please read what I highlighted and you will understand: 

     a. Numbers 10:14-28
         The formation of the twelve tribes when they were ready to advance to the Promised Land in the book of Numbers: 





      b. Numbers 1:20-52
          The very beginning formation of the twelve tribes in Numbers 





  
       c Numbers 2:1-34
          The formation was in all four directions(East, South, West, North), four Camps, four Commanders, 12 divisions, 12 division leaders (four of those were Commanders). This completed the formation 





      Are you willing to be led by your shepherd into the formation of your church? 

    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help us to be willing to give everything you want us to give to love you and to follow you and willing to be led by those shepherd appointed by you in our own church.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  


Reflect on these questions:
1. What are those things blocking you that you are not willing to give everything Jesus wants you to give loving Him and following Him and that you are unwilling to be led by those shepherd appointed by Jesus in our own church?

2.   What is your next step ?

3.  What have you heard from Jesus today?
