DAY 133 - The Best You Can Get When You Pray

Golden Verse 金句

"If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
                                  Luke 11:13

"你 們 雖 然 不 好 , 尚 且 知 道 拿 好 東 西 給 兒 女 ; 何 況 天 父 , 豈 不 更 將 聖 靈 給 求 他 的 人 麼 ?"              路加福音 11:13
Today's Reading: Luke 11:1-13

Please read Luke 11:1-13 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:

     What I got from Jesus is: The best you can get when you pray
     What I received from Jesus today when I read this passage is a very wonderful experience. The whole passage is all about prayers, a very familiar format and way of prayer "The Lord's Prayer". I thought what Jesus told me would be the similar message as in my other blog about our joint prayers for Leslie today at 10:15a.m.:

    Indeed it is, but more than that.
    We need to ask, seek, knock and Jesus will grant our prayers if that is according to His will. 

    Actually, God has given me gift of healing for at least 17 years and the Lord used me to heal quite a number of people. But, lots of them left the church when they were being healed, when they got what they wanted. Sad! Sad stories!

    Today, Jesus tells us a very, very important message. If the final result of our prayers is not to receive the Holy Spirit into our lives. Then, no matter how great a case it would be that Jesus answers your prayer, it might not be a life changing event. Only if we pray to receive the Holy Spirit, to be filled by Him and to receive the fresh anointing from them, then according to what Jesus says today, everything will be changed!

    What are you praying for recently? Do you know the best you can get when you pray?

Dear Holy Spirit,
Come and fill us, we desperately need you.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
