 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://twa.pastoralcareschool.org/

親親爸父經文:(詩篇 124:1-5; 撒母耳記下 17:1-29; 約翰福音 19:23-42; 箴言 16:12-13)  


     以 色 列 人 要 說 : 若 不 是 耶 和 華 幫 助 我 們 ,

若 不 是 耶 和 華 幫 助 我 們 , 當 人 起 來 攻 擊 我 們 、

向 我 們 發 怒 的 時 候 , 就 把 我 們 活 活 地 吞 了 。

那 時 , 波 濤 必 漫 過 我 們 , 河 水 必 淹 沒 我 們 ,

狂 傲 的 水 必 淹 沒 我 們 。

詩篇 124:1-5


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。

 
 日我從主耶穌領受的主題是: 若不是神幫助我們,我們早被活活地吞了!

今日的詩篇 124 表達了詩人對神完全的信心,知道若不是有神幫助,那些狂傲的敵人會有如海潚一樣活活地吞了我們!

今日撒母耳記下的經文描述大衛被自己最信任的參謀長及好朋友亞希多弗出賣,亞希多弗是一個極有智慧及策略的人,但他亦是在大衞因色自迷的情况下不為意亞希多弗對大衞懷恨的人,因為根㯫撒母耳記下23:34他是以蓮的父親,而撒母耳記下11:3大衞搶妻殺夫的拔士巴是以蓮的女兒,所以亞希多弗是拔士巴的祖父,是所羅門的曾祖父,此人處心積慮,早已想一有機會便除去大衛

如果神不接納大衞的認罪悔攻,在有如地震海潚的危難中奇妙地使押沙龍不接納亞希多弗的必勝殺大衞的策略,而接受大衞派來的臥底户篩救大衞的獻計,大衞一定被消滅,結果是惡人押沙龍和亞希多弗被消滅!

你相信神一定會在你的困境中有如幫助大衞一樣的幫助你嗎?

請看看上面 "為你的牧者祈禱"的請求便可以明白撒但惡者的工作! 你的牧者需要你的祈禱! 我需要你的祈禱!

     親愛的主耶穌
    求你讓我們相信你一定會在我們的困境中有如幫助大衞一樣的幫助我們奉主耶穌基督名求,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。

Please click this link for today's Time with Abba one year Bible four passages:


Nicky Gumbel's Bible in one year today:


Bible in one year by Nicky Gumbel:



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 124:1-5, 2 Samuel 17:1-29; John 19:23-42; Proverbs 16:12-13)


    Today's key passage: 

   If the Lord had not been on our side—
    let Israel say—
if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

Psalm 124:1-5


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 today from Jesus isIf you have not been on our side, they would have swallowed us alive!

    Today's Psalm 124 shows the total trust of David on God. Yes, he would have been swallowed by his enemies!

    Today's 2 Samuel records how David was being betrayed by Ahithophel and is not for Abasalom not to listen to him but listened to Hushai, David would have been killed. According to 2 Samuel 23:34 Ahithophel was the father of Eliam and according to 2 Samuel 11:3 Eliam was the father of Bethsheba! David killed Ahithophel's granddaughter's husband! That's why Ahithophel planned to have his revenge on David but David was not aware of that. If God had not received David's repentance, David would have been destroyed by Ahithophel's strategy to Abasalom.

    Do you believe that God will help you in your calamity as he helped David?


     Dear Lord Jesus,  
 Help us to have a total trust in you that you will help us as you helped David. 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?
    
      Family Corner:
     Find an opportunity to share with your family the importance of today's message.
