Golden Verse 金句

The Lord is my shepherd,  I shall not want.          
                                            Psalm 23:1
耶 和 華 是 我 的 牧 者 , 我 必 不 致 缺 乏 。            
                                            詩篇 23:1

Today's Reading: Psalm 詩篇 23

Please read Psalm 23 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from my Devotion on Fire blog:

You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.

What I got from Jesus is: I shall not want!
This is my top No. 2 golden verse which the Lord used to help me get through so many difficulties and crisis. We as human beings want to have so many things, but most of the things we want may not be what we really need, and some of those we want are not good for us. The problem is that we do not understand and we cannot see.

When we really have Jesus Christ as our good shepherd and we as one of his sheep, we should feel more and more secure and less and less wanting to have those things the Lord does not want us to have.

Just like the famous Taize chant: Never be troubled
Never be troubled, never be frightened,
With Lord Jesus, you will lack nothing.

Never be troubled, never be frightened,
With Lord life be full.

不再有憂慮, 不再有害怕,
與主在一起, 甚麼都不缺,

不再有憂慮, 不再有害怕,

How satisfied and secure we are when we have Jesus as our shepherd, our Lord, our Savior and our King!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for being our shepherd, our Lord, our Savior and our King. Lead us to enter into your Kingdom that we can enjoy that abundance and security. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

**1100 DAYS of prayers now!!!

**NEW link for the 11th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign(from August 25 to December 03, 2012).

The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week to pray for me, my family and my ministry, remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. This campaign is also to teach you that you need somebody to pray for you daily. I have been prayed for hourly the past 1,100 days and I have never experienced this kind of peace and protection before. It's just beyond words can express. If I did not listen and obey to Jesus call 1,100 days ago to start this prayer movement, I think I would be pulled into darkness and discouragement already! I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!
