Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/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 sins 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."

3.  John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

(Please click this link to see how God used John Stott to change my life:https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/07/

           "Heavenly Father, I pray that this day I may live in your presence and please you more and more.

             Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.

             Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

    Time with Abba passages: Psalm 150:1-6; Malachi 3:1-4:6; Revelation 22:1-21Proverbs 31:25-31)

    Today's key passage:
    Praise the Lord.[a]

        Praise God in his sanctuary,
      praise him in his mighty heavens.
    Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
    praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
    praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.

      Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

     Praise the Lord.

                   Psalm 150:1-6

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 Praise the Lord!

    Today is the last day of 2021, let us praise the Lord for this year!

    Well, this year has been quite difficult for lots of people, the pandemic and natural disasters has brought severe suffering to all people on earth. 

    But, we need to give thanks to the Lord and praise Him because it gives an opportunity for us as human beings to understand how helpless we can be when we are out of control!

    We really need to ask Jesus to help us and to hand over the lordship to Him. He is Lord of lords and King of kings!

    Let us learn from Psalm 150:1-6 that what we need to do as children of God is to use everything we can to praise Him, singing, dancing and all kinds of musical instruments. We praise Him and worship Him each day with angels and Archangels in His Holy Temple!

    
   May we pray for our church on the 68th  day of our 100 days Prayer Meeting now:
 
Dear Lord Jesus,
We give thanks to you for your presence in 2021. Move our hearts to love you more and be with you more, singing praises to you more each day that we will be crowned with victory. 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?
    
      Family Corner:
     Find an opportunity to share with your family the importance of today's message.

親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌

親親爸父經文:(詩篇 150:1-6; 瑪拉基書 3:1-4:6; 啓示錄 22:1-21箴言 31:25-31)

你 們 要 讚 美 耶 和 華 ! 在 神 的 聖 所 讚 美 他 ! 在 他 顯 能 力 的 穹 蒼 讚 美 他 !

要 因 他 大 能 的 作 為 讚 美 他 , 按 著 他 極 美 的 大 德 讚 美 他 !

要 用 角 聲 讚 美 他 , 鼓 瑟 彈 琴 讚 美 他 !

擊 鼓 跳 舞 讚 美 他 ! 用 絲 弦 的 樂 器 和 簫 的 聲 音 讚 美 他 !

用 大 響 的 鈸 讚 美 他 ! 用 高 聲 的 鈸 讚 美 他 !

凡 有 氣 息 的 都 要 讚 美 耶 和 華 ! 你 們 要 讚 美 耶 和 華 !

詩篇 150:1-6


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  
    我從主耶穌領受主題是你們要讚美耶和華!


    今日是2021年最後一天,讓我們為這整個世界很困難的一年感恩,因為我們作為人有機會明白當人失控的時候是多麼無助,我們實在需要主耶穌的幫助及將主權移交給他,他是萬主之主,萬王之王!

    讓我們從今日的詩篇 150:1-6中,明白當我們作為有神氣息的兒女是應當每日用盡一切方法,唱歌,跳舞,擊鼓,彈琴與在天上的眾天使,天軍與聖徒在神的聖所讚美主敬拜主!


願望我們在今天以馬內利堂百日祈禱會的第68天能為我們的教會這樣的祈禱:


    親愛的主耶穌
    我們為2021年你每天的同在感恩,求你激勵我們的心每天渴望有多些時間親近你,多些唱歌讚美你,使我們能得着你賜我們勝利的冠冕奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。

    Today's key passage:
    Praise the Lord.
        Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
    Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
    and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
    and sing for joy on their beds.

                    Psalm 149:1-5

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 Why we need to have time with Abba, singing praises to Him each day?

    Do you know why I changed the name of my blog from "Time with Abba, Depression Out" to "Time with Abba, Singing Praising" a year ago?

     Well, it is because the most important lesson I have learned in the past two years in the midst of this pandemic is to know lots of people have received comfort, freedom and strength through their using my blogs daily to sing praises to the Lord and to experience the presence of God!

    A few months ago, I was playing a board game with my granddaughter Zoe. We had to share our feelings from a lot of questions so that we can understand each others more. One card she chose was:

    What do you do when you are angry?


    Zoe said, "When I am angry, I will worship!"

    Wow! That is the fruit of the daily morning prayer around 7:30am of Zoe and her parents, Iggy and Anna. We live in the same house, Iggy, Anna and Zoe live in the ground floor and Michelle, Athan and me live in the second floor. Quite a number of times I heard Zoe sang so loud to praise the Lord with Iggy and Anna and I was moved every time!

    Yes, that's the fruit of two anointed parents to teach and be with their daughter to sing praises to God every morning and that is what it says in today's Psalm 149:1-5. When we use all kinds of methods to sing praises to God and "He will crown the humble with victory"!

    
    Just as the message yesterday, if you have a true intimate relationship with Jesus each day, singing praises to him, being close to His heart, then you will be raised up with power and might!

    
   May we pray for our church on the 67th  day of our 100 days Prayer Meeting now:
 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Move our hearts to love you more and be with you more, singing praises to you more each day that we will be crowned with victory. 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?

親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌
 
今日親親親爸父經文連結: http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
親親爸父經文:(詩篇 149:1-9; 馬拉基書 1:1-2:17; 啓示錄 21:1-27箴言 31:10-24)

你 們 要 讚 美 耶 和 華 ! 向 耶 和 華 唱 新 歌 , 在 聖 民 的 會 中 讚 美 他 !

願 以 色 列 因 造 他 的 主 歡 喜 ! 願 錫 安 的 民 因 他 們 的 王 快 樂 !

願 他 們 跳 舞 讚 美 他 的 名 , 擊 鼓 彈 琴 歌 頌 他 !

因 為 耶 和 華 喜 愛 他 的 百 姓 ; 他 要 用 救 恩 當 作 謙 卑 人 的 妝 飾 。

願 聖 民 因 所 得 的 榮 耀 高 興 ! 願 他 們 在 床 上 歡 呼 !

詩篇 149:1-5


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  
    我從主耶穌領受主題是: 為何要每天親親爸父,唱詩歌頌?

    三年前因見到不少被焦慮和抑鬱煎熬的人,我從主領受將多年這博客的名稱由"親親爸父"改為"親親爸父,抑鬱消失",自去年12月28日這博由 "親親爸父,抒鬱消失"改變為"親親爸父,唱詩歌頌"因為在過去差不多二年的疫情中,我學到最大的功課就是從主耶穌吩咐我每天在早禱及午禱的二個錄影都唱詩歌頌主中幫助很多人得着無比的釋放,安慰和力量,更重要的是經歷神的同在!

    多個月前和孫女伍穌怡Zoe玩一個紙版遊戲(Board Game),每行一步要答一個分享性的問題,增加彼此的認識。她選到一張咭的問題是: 你發怒時會做甚麼? 

    ZOE答, "When I am angry, I will worship ! 當我發怒時,我會唱詩歌頌敬拜主!"

    這是因為她從出世開始至現在六歲,我們的兒子伍因信牧師及媳婦Anna每天在家三個人都有幾次唱詩歌頌敬拜主的時間,我們住在他們樓上,經常聽到ZOE大聲唱詩歌頌讚美主大聲歡呼喜樂的聲音,所以她學到解決憤怒,不安及不開心的最好方法就是唱詩歌頌敬拜主!

    昨天晚上我再以相同的問題問她,他給我的答案是使人驚嘆的: "爺爺,我去年時常憤怒,一憤怒我就唱詩歌頌敬拜主,今年我無憤怒了。"

    感謝主! 一個五歲時常憤怒的小朋友,知道並經歷消除怒氣的方法就唱詩歌頌敬拜主,一年後,不再憤怒了,Hallelujah!

    讓我們從今日的詩篇 149:1-5中,明白當我們用盡一切方法,唱歌,跳舞,擊鼓,彈琴敬拜主時,主會喜悅我們,詩篇 149:4 "他 要 用 救 恩 當 作 謙 卑 人 的 妝 飾 ",     NIV版是 "Crowns the humble with victory",即是唱詩歌頌去敬拜主就是謙卑緊靠主的人,他會使我們得勝,並賜我們勝利的冠冕!

    是的,今天主耶穌正如昨天一樣再一次告訴你,與他相近讚美他的,必大大得力!

願望我們在今天以馬內利堂百日祈禱會的第7天能為我們的教會這樣的祈禱:


    親愛的主耶穌
    求你感動激勵我們的心去愛你,每天很渴望有多些時間親近你,多些唱歌讚美你,使我們能大大得力得勝,得着你賜我們勝利的冠冕奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。
