 安靜

1.  停下來. 靜一靜

2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安, 享受神同在, 呼出你的憂慮


讚美及感恩
1.  思想最近使你開心歡笑的時刻
2.  為那些時刻及有關的人感恩

知罪,認罪,悔改 (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method 轉位靈修法  https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/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侍奉主、見證主,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


3.  司徒德牧師每天早上的 "活像基督"祈禱 John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

   "天父,求你使我今天活在你的同在中,你一天比一天更喜悦我。
    主耶穌,求你使我今天能背起我的十字架去跟隨你。
    聖靈,求你在今天充滿我,使你的果子能彰顯在我的生命中: 仁愛,喜樂,和平,忍耐,恩慈,良善,信實,温柔及節制。"
             

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 96:7-13; 約伯記 37:1-39:30; 哥林多後書 4:13-5:10;   箴言 22:13)  


那 時 , 耶 和 華 從 旋 風 中 回 答 約 伯 說 :

誰 用 無 知 的 言 語 使 我 的 旨 意 暗 昧 不 明 ,

你 要 如 勇 士 束 腰 ; 我 問 你 , 你 可 以 指 示 我 。

我 立 大 地 根 基 的 時 候 , 你 在 哪 裡 呢 ? 你 若 有 聰 明 , 只 管 說 罷 !

約伯記 38:1-4


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
     今日我從主耶穌領受的主題是: 誰用無知的言語使我的旨意暗昧不明?

    今日的領受很特別,因為當讀約伯記的經文時,忽然想到我們很多時説不明白主的旨意,又説尋求主的旨意,然後又説順服主的旨意,究竟我們明不明白説甚麼?

    忽然陷在苦難中的約伯不明白主的旨意為何容許他那樣苦,約伯的四個朋友以為明白主的旨意是要懲罰約伯,他們自己判斷約伯一定有罪才會有那苦難,到三十七章完都沒有人明白主的旨意,直到今日第三十八章神親自說話,一切都明白了!

    其實從約伯記可見,最重要是每日同主 "有計傾",他親自告訴你,你就 "丁一聲"明白了,他不親自告訴你,你真可以一世都不明,直到有朝一日在天家他告訴你,你就會說: "啊! 原來係咁!"

    可能你會問: "怎樣認得那是主的聲音?" 我會答: "你會不會認不到你太太,你丈夫,你家人的聲音,或者你老友記的聲音?" 

    願望你和主建立到親蜜的關係,每日同主 "有計傾",不要用無知的言語使主的旨意暗昧不明!

    更願望你能加入我們由九月十日開始至明年九月八日完成每星期禁食一餐的一年禁食祈禱運動,一起禁食祈禱,摧毀魔鬼藉各種欺騙的手段毀壞這世界和教會的詭計!

     親愛的主耶穌,
     求你使我們能和你建立到親蜜的關係,每日同你 "有計傾",不會用無知的言語使你的旨意暗昧不明,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。

省察問題 
 1. 今日的信息對你有何啓發?  主耶穌現在對你説甚麽話?

 2. 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。  

Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?

Nicky Gumbel's Bible in one year today:



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) 

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."


The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 96:7-13, Job 37:1-39:30;  2 Corinthians 4:13-5:10; Proverbs 22:13)

    Today's key passage: 

      Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:
     “Who is this that obscures my plans
    with words without knowledge?
     Brace yourself like a man;
    I will question you,
    and you shall answer me.
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
    Tell me, if you understand.    

       Job 38:1-4

    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  isWho is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?
    
    Today's catch is very special, because when I was reading today's passage from Job, I had lots of thinking: lots of time we say we do not understand God's plan, then we say we want to seek God's plan, and then we say we obey God's plan, actually, do we know what we are talking about?

    Job was suddenly being thrown into deep suffering and almost lost everything, he did not understand God's plan!

    Job's four friends thought they knew God's plan was to punish Job's serious sins so that God put him to deep suffering and what Job needed to do is to admit his sins and repent! They sat on God's throne to become judges!

    So, until God spoke in Chapter 38, no one understand God's plan! And when God spoke, everyone understood!

    Yes, the most important experience and purpose of our lives is to be able to "chat with God" each day! Let Him tells you and you will understand His plan. If He is not going to tell you, may be we will never understand until we are in heaven and then He will tell you and at that time you will say, "Oh! I understand now!"

    May be you would ask, "How can I recognize that's God's voice?"

    To this question which happen quite frequently, my answer is always this:
    "Are you able to recognize your wife's voice? Your husband's voice? Your best friends voice?" 

    Well, if you can't recognize God's voice, it means you do not have that kind of intimate relationship with Him and He is not your Lord and most important person of your life!

    I sincerely hope and pray for you to have a daily intimate relationship with Jesus and love to chat with Jesus everyday. Do not obscure God's plan with words without knowledge!

   
     Dear Lord Jesus,  
     Help us to have a daily intimate relationship with you and love to chat with you each day that we won't obscure your plan with words without knowledge. 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, to be holy - that is to do what Jesus wants you to do and not to do what Jesus wants you not to do?
