DAY 121 (2020) - Truly my soul finds rest in God! (Please click here for English podcast)




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 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 and having Jesus as my Lord. 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)


    Today's main passage:
      
                               Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
How long will you assault me?
    Would all of you throw me down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
    from my lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

Psalm 62:1-8


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

    My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus is: Truly my soul finds rest in God!

    There are a lot of Christians like to read Psalm in the past few months in the midst of this pandemic because it brings lots of comfort and strength!

    But, have you thought of the writer of Psalm, King David(he wrote most of the chapters in Psalm)had been through so many difficult times, suffering, pain, anxiety, helpless, hopeless, discouragement and darkness! And, David is the one as describes in the Bible closest to the heart of God! All those sufferings helped David to become a faithful servant loving God because he found out that God is a faithful God always loving him no matter what!

    What is the secret of David to be in God's love like that?

    I think we can have some clues in today's Psalm and it is:
    Truly my soul finds rest in God!

    I remember when I was around ten years old my father took me to a government building to pay a bill. He found out he did not bring enough money and he asked me to wait for him. I waited for more than an hour and I had peace because I knew he will surely come back to get me! I found rest in my father's love!

    David truly finds his rest in God because he experienced God as describes in today's Psalm:
    He is my salvation (four times)
    He is my rock(three times and in the 3rd time He is my mighty rock)
    He is my fortress (two times)
    He is my hope
    He is my glory
    He is my refuge(two times)

    I sincerely hope and pray that this pandemic can help you to build up a closer relationship with Jesus that your soul truly finds rest in Him. Then, after this crisis, your relationship with Jesus will be raised to a new level, more intimate and sweet!

     
     Dear Lord Jesus,  
     Help us to make use of this pandemic to have a similar experience as David and that our relationship with you will be more intimate and sweet after this crisis. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
    
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. How can you learn from David to wait for God and your soul truly finds rest in God?
     
      2.  What is your next step to make that happen?

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 
     "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔, 
        求你幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:
     「親愛的主耶穌,感謝你為我的罪釘死在十字架上,我願意在你面前承認我的罪(凡聖靈光照到的,請逐一說出),求你用你的寶血赦免我的罪,我願意打開心門讓你作我的救主,求你救贖我,我願意一生跟隨你讓你作我生命的主,求你帶領我。聖靈,求你充滿我,使我得著恩賜及力量去事奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


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:
 我 的 心 默 默 無 聲 , 專 等 候 神 ; 我 的 救 恩 是 從 他 而 來 。
惟 獨 他 是 我 的 磐 石 , 我 的 拯 救 ; 他 是 我 的 高 臺 , 我 必 不 很 動 搖 。
你 們 大 家 攻 擊 一 人 , 把 他 毀 壞 , 如 同 毀 壞 歪 斜 的 牆 、 將 倒 的 壁 , 要 到 幾 時 呢 ?
他 們 彼 此 商 議 , 專 要 從 他 的 尊 位 上 把 他 推 下 ; 他 們 喜 愛 謊 話 , 口 雖 祝 福 , 心 卻 咒 詛 。 ( 細 拉 )
我 的 心 哪 , 你 當 默 默 無 聲 , 專 等 候 神 , 因 為 我 的 盼 望 是 從 他 而 來 。
惟 獨 他 是 我 的 磐 石 , 我 的 拯 救 ; 他 是 我 的 高 臺 , 我 必 不 動 搖 。
我 的 拯 救 、 我 的 榮 耀 都 在 乎 神 ; 我 力 量 的 磐 石 、 我 的 避 難 所 都 在 乎 神 。
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 。 
詩篇 62:1-8

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
日我從主耶穌領受的主題是: 我的心默默無聲,專等候神! 


    有不少的基督徒在這幾個月的疫情裏,很喜歡讀詩篇,因為帶來很多安慰及力量!
    
    然而你有否想過,聖經描述最合神心意的人,最偉大的王帝,竟然經歷那麼多困難、痛苦、沮喪、無助、無望、焦慮及黑暗! 而所有那些苦難就成就了一位忠心愛神的人,因為他在神不離不棄的愛中!

    大衞能夠這樣愛神的秘訣在那裏?

    我相信今日的詩篇揭示了大衞其中一個秘訣,就是:
    我的心默默無聲,專等候神! 

    我記得有次我十歲左右和父親去交一些費用,他告訴我他帶不夠錢,叫我等他,他去拿錢回來,我當時等了一個多鐘,但我知道他一定回來!

    大衞願意默默無聲的等候神,因為今日的詩篇清楚地描述他經歷過的神是:
    我的拯救者x4
    我的磐石x3(第三次- mighty rock 大能的磐石)
    我的高台(Fortress堡壘)x2
    我的盼望
    我的榮耀
    我的避難所x2

    盼望"新冠肺炎"的疫情能幫助你有如大衞那樣的去默默無聲的等候神,經歷神,疫情過後,你和神的關係,一定升級,一定更甜蜜!
    
      
    親愛的主耶穌, 
    求你使我們能藉"新冠肺炎"的疫情,幫助我們有如大衞那樣的去經歷神,使疫情過後,我們和你的關係能更甜蜜,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。 

 省察問題 
 1. 你怎樣能有如大衞那樣默默無聲的在這疫情中去等候神,經歷神


  2. 你的下一步是什麼行動?
   

     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。

讚美
我要向山舉目
