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 shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:

     “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 62:1-12; Judges 11:1-12:15; John 1:1-28, Proverbs 14:13-14)

Bible link:English(NIV):https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Judges+2&version=NIV

Today's main passages:
Trust in him at all time, you people;
  pour out your hearts to him,
  for God is our refuge.          Psalm 62:8

One thing God has spoken,
  two things I have heard:
  "Power belongs to you, God."  Psalm 62:11
   
 Yet to all who did receive him,
    to those who believed in his name,
    he gave the right to become children of God.      John 1:12

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
   We have seen his glory,
    the glory of the one and only Son,
    who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

No one has ever seen God, 
  but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is closest relationship
  with the Father, has made him known.                    John 1:18                                                


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.


My Listening
I have read chapter one of the Gospel of John numerous times, but today the Lord helped me to focus on only one word "the right"(John 1:12). Usually when we say the word "the right" we follow another word "duty". 

Yes, that's what I received today:
1. We have the right to become children of God
    a. We can be in "the closest relationship with the Father"(John 1:18) to "pour out our hearts to him".(Psalm 62:8)
    b. We have "the right" to exercise the "power"(Psalm 62:11) of being God's children.
    c. When we are in trouble we can run to God for He is our "refuge"(Psalm 62:8) that we can be in this protection

2. We have the duty for being children of God
    Our duty is to let other people to see Jesus is in our lives and that we can "make him known", let people to see His "glory". (John 1:18, 14)

May you be able to exercise the right of being God's children, to live out the duty of being God's children so that you can enter into His protection, guidance and blessing!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to exercise the right of being God's children, to live out the duty of being God's children so that we can enter into His protection, guidance and blessing In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Reflect on these questions:
1. How has today's message given you inspiration and strength?

2.  How can you start to experience "the right of being God's children" ?

Family Corner:
1. Find an opportunity to share with your family members of this reminder and promise.

知罪,認罪,悔改 (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method 轉位靈修法) http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1. 求聖靈光照,使你知罪,願意認罪悔改

親親爸父, 聆聽主話(詩篇 62:1-12; 士師記 11:1-12:15; 約翰福音 1:1-28; 箴言 14:13-14)

新約聖經廣東話聆聽版: https://www.hkbible.org/revelation

今日的主題經文:
你們眾民當時時倚靠他,
在他面前傾心吐意,
神是我們的避難所。

神説了一次,兩次,我都聽見,
就是能力都屬乎神。      詩篇 62:8, 11

凡接侍他的,就是信他名的人,他就賜他們權柄,作神的兒女。    

道成了肉身,住在我中間,充充滿滿地有恩典,有真理。我們也見過他的榮光,正是父獨生子的榮光。

從來沒有人看見神,只有在父懷裏的獨生子將他表眀出來。    約翰福音 1:12, 14, 18

                                                           


現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。


我的聆聽
約翰福音第一章讀過無數次,但今天主帶領我的眼睛注目在"權利 Right"(和合本譯作'權柄')這個字上,我們通常想到有權利,下一句便是有"義務Duty"。

是的,這就是我今天從以上的幾段經文所領受的:
1. 我們作為神兒女的權利
    a. 可以在天父的"懷裏"(約 1:18)"傾心吐意"(詩62:8)
    b. 有"權利"行使作為神兒女的"能力"(詩62:11)
    c. 有麻煩可以有神作"避難所",在他的保護裏(詩62:8)

2.  我們作為神兒女的義務
     讓人看見我們的生命就看見在我們生命中的耶穌,"表明"了神的"榮光"((約 1:18, 14)

願望你能每天行使作為神兒女的權利,活出作為神兒女的義務,進入他的保護,帶領及祝福中!

親愛的阿爸父,
求你使我們能每天行使作為你兒女的權利,活出作為你兒女的義務,進入你的保護,帶領及祝福中,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。

省察問題
1. 今日的信息給您怎様的啓發及力量?
2. 你如何開始經歷"行使神兒女的權柄"這提醒及應許?


家庭角落
1. 你能否找機會和家人去分享提醒及應許?

Today's main passages:
Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
  and fulfill my vows day after day.          Psalm 61:8

I am going to send you what my Father has promised;
  but stay in the city until you have been clothed with 
  power from on high.                             Luke 24:49                                                


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.


My Listening
Yesterday we learned from Psalm 61:2 that it is so easy to have a rock in between God and us, we need to cry to God to raise us up above our height so that we can be able to see. So that we can remember those saving acts God did to us, can be able to feel His presence, can have the hope for our future and to experience "God with us"! 

The work of Satan is to steal our "God with us" away. He wants you to forget God had been with you, wants you to feel that God is not with you now, then you are not going to have your future because without God with you, you would become a person full of insecurity!

Jesus gave a command to His apostles in today's Luke 24:49, "Don't go anywhere after I have gone. You need to stay and wait until you experience God is with you that you are being clothed with the Holy Spirit!"

Well, they were very obedience and they stayed and waited in the place they had the last supper with Jesus. Wait! Wait! Wait and wait for ten days, the Holy Spirit came, they were being filled and they had received the power they never had before to exercise signs and wonders, to start the Early Church and to change human history.

May you be able to wait for the filling of the Holy Spirit everyday so that you can experience the presence of God and you can enter into His protection, guidance and blessing!


Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to to wait for the filling of the Holy Spirit everyday so that we can experience the presence of God and can be able to enter into His protection, guidance and blessing In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Reflect on these questions:
1. How has today's message given you inspiration and encouragement?

2.  How can you start to experience the reminder and promise of "waiting to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that we can experience God with us each day"?
