With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken!



Please click this link for the video version:


Nicky Gumbel's Bible in one year today:


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

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."

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:

           "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."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 16:7-11, Genesis  50:1-Exodus 2:10; Matthew 16:13-17:9; Proverbs 5:1-6)

     TWA Bible link:

    Today's main passage:
     I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,        Psalm 16:8-9

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 isWith Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken!

     Have you discovered today's all four passages are about the present relationship with God and to describe God is on the right hand side? We can see how Joseph gives us the golden verse of the golden verses, Genesis 50:20

     You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 

    Have you thought of to live out today's Matthew 16:23-26? What kind of cross do you need to take up in order that He will be always on your right hand side and you can always being filled with joy and have eternal pleasures? 

   Actually Jesus already revealed that to His three most beloved apostles, Peter, James and John in today's Matthew 17:1-9. The way, the secret is to go up to the mountain, a place of solitude each day, each morning to be with God, to enjoy the abiding love of God's presence and to listen and obey to God's daily instruction! That's why we are having the past 93 days our 100 days Prayer Meeting. That's why we had our daily 6am Time with Abba and 7am worship before the pandemic. That's why we are not going to end the 7am Prayer Meeting but will continue after these 100 days!

   May we pray for our church on the 93rd  day of our 100 days Prayer Meeting now:
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to take up that cross you want me to take up so that I will have you on my right hand and that I will never be shaken and be always filled with joy and have eternal pleasures.  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?

     Find an opportunity to share with your family the importance of today's message.
