DAY 1 (2021) - Do you want whatever you do prosper in 2021? (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."

Time with Abba, Singing Praising (Psalm 1:1-6)

    Today's main passage:
    Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
      but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.


Psalm 1:1-6


    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 from Jesus is: Do you want whatever you do prosper in 2021?

    Of course we all want that to happen in 2021, right? But, lots of time we are not able to do better, or we can't catch the opportunity and we regret of our fault not being able to prosper!

    Well, what we need to understand is that we as human beings are not able to control lots of things. We might suddenly lose our health due to an unexpected accident or sickness, and we are not able to catch the right timing because time is not in the control of human hands! The sad thing is that we do not know that and we waste lots of time!

    Psalm 1 tells us a truth, a purpose of life! It tells us that if we are willing to spend more time with God and sing praises to Him each day, we are just like a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season. We will have that abundant life promised by Jesus as in John 10:10 and whatever we do prosper!

    Also, the Holy Spirit will open our eyes to see and know what is good and what is bad and that we know how to cherish those good things, good people and to get rid of wickedness.

    May you be able to live out what it says in Psalm 1 and that whatever you do prosper in 2021 and beyond!


     Dear Lord Jesus,
    Lead us to be willing to sing praises to you and to worship you each day more and more that whatever we do in 2021 will prosperIn 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?

       Welcome to use my first blog: Read one chapter of Bible a day 


    Starting from today, January 1, 2021, I am going to lead you to read one Psalm everyday for 150 days that you can experience a powerful experience to use Psalm to pray and sing praises to the Lord. If you watch my daily morning prayer "Time with Abba, Singing and Praising" video, I am going to sing with you one song to praise the Lord!
    
    Praise the Lord that after a few months of preparation for this new series with a good friend, Alice Cheung, you can see a brand new look in my daily blog. Alice who is now the Vice Principal of Diocesan Girls' School (https://www.dgs.edu.hk/) is going to draw a painting each day to highlight the key message of that day's Psalm. You can see the photos below of Alice, one pictures was taken in Hong Kong of Michelle and me, and Alice and her husband Johnson. The other picture is with her Doctor of Education gown standing besides the Alumni Wall of DGS and with her name and the year 1984, the year she graduated in that school. She had been a principal of a high school for seven years and worked as a Vice Principal two years ago.
