DAY 319 (2020) - By faith, we fix our eyes on Jesus, receive blessings! (Please go to FaceBook(silastyng) to watch my video of this blog)

 

   


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
3.   Sing a song to praise God (you are welcome to use "Father, I adore you" which I have been singing every morning for the past 20 years or your own choice to praise God)

          Father, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Jesus, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Spirit, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
      

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 gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 121:1-8, Ezekiel 29:1-30:26; Hebrews 11:32-12:13; Proverbs 27:17)

    Today's main passage:
    
    Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

   Hebrews 12:1-2

    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 to Jesus as you listen to him.    

    My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus is: By faith, we fix our eyes on Jesus, receive blessings!

    This is what I received from today's Hebrews 12:1-2 and Psalm 121. Our faith is from the whole faith of mankind as described by Hebrews 11 and as the vivid picture of an athlete running a 100 meters fixing his eyes on the red line in the final point to get his gold medal as described in Hebrews 12:1-2!

     This is how Jesus opened my eyes to see this morning. Jesus said, "Fix your eyes on me, I am that red line! Then, you will understand my promise in Psalm 121 for you, my protection and blessings!"

    The sad thing is that lots of people do not fix their eyes on Jesus but on "Money, Power, Desire"!

     Let's read Psalm 121 now to see what God has promisee to you if you fix your eyes on Him:

     I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
  My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
  He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
  indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
  The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
  the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
  The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
  the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

   Psalm 121: 1-8
    

     Dear Lord Jesus,
    Help us to be able to establish that kind of faithful and intimate relationship with you that by faith we will be blessed and many will be blessed because of us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
      
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration have you received from today's catch and what have you heard from Jesus now?
      
      2.  What is your next step to be more closer to Jesus?
