Subject Shifting Devotion Method(Inspired by John Stott in 1991:

Today's Reading: James 1

Please read James 1 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.

我 的 弟 兄 們 , 你 們 落 在 百 般 試 煉 中 , 都 要 以 為 大 喜 樂 ;

                                                               雅 各 書 1:2

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 
                                                    James 1:2

    What I got today from Jesus is: Joy in crisis
    Today Jesus gives us an encouragement as well as a way to get through a crisis. Joy! That's the way!

    We know that the central message in the book of James is on 2:17 :
faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    How can "Joy in crisis" applies to this central message? Well, take it as a test, an examination then. When you face with a crisis, see if you can have joy in the midst of all kinds of worries, impatient, doubt. See if you still can have joy to face with all those kind of difficulties in a crisis. See if you can take that crisis as a challenge.

     It would be such a joy for an athlete to be in the final of Olympic Game. No one knows how hard that athlete has been training to be qualified into that final run. It is a big, big challenge but never a crisis. That's the picture I got from Jesus to you if you are facing with a crisis. Joy! Joy! Joy!

     That is the time to see how great God is. That is the time for you to sing "Great is Thy faithfulness" as some of the words from this powerful hymn comes from verse 17.

     Let's sing this hymn now:

        Oh, I am so joyful now! So joyful indeed! Thank you Lord! Praise the Lord!

Dear Holy Spirit,
Pour down your fresh anointing of the gift of faith and joy that we can be able to get through any crisis in our life. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
