• Better Call Saul

    I am a Breaking Bad fan.  Not because I love MET, nope.  No way. But I love the characters development in a series of which AMC is not focusing on sex, pretty faces, good looking people etc in a great show.  Rather on the story development, how something could lead to something else, affecting the whole way how series could be developed into. I believe it is really hard now for Mr. White, aka Bryan Cranston to be in any other movies or TV series, ok, his performance in Godzilla sucks. 

  • ‘As surely as I valued your life today, so may the Lord value my life’

    When I was doing my daily devotion yesterday, I could not do it in the SOAP method, because none of the passage spoke to me.  I must be honest with God, can’t just a passage and so be it. Today, when I read 1 Samuel 26, David again spared Saul’s life. In 1 Samuel 26:11, the word of God says, But the Lord forbid that I should lay a hand on the Lord’s anointed. Now get the spear and water jug that are near his head, and let’s go.” David has the chance again to kill Saul, but he did not, rather to show a gesture that when he could do it,…

  • David, Saul

    It is interesting to read the Bible.  Well, for Christians, it is the Word of God that shines our path & it is His words that encourages us when we are down, to guide us when we seek help, and of course shaping our life, how we should be. Reading 1 Samuel, besides learning how prophet Samuel is called and used by God, we also got to learn how the first king of Israel was introduced.  By the way, many have asked how I got the name ‘Samuel’.  It is not from my parents, but from my English teacher.  Each of our classmates got a Christian name that time.  I…

  • Managing Anger & Putting to Past

    Reading Acts 9 and 10, seeing how Jesus was transforming Saul, before he was then known as Paul, from a persecuting Christian as his main job, to then preaching the Gospel of Christ as his main task for life, till his death. When one heard about Saul is now God’s servant, many would not have believe.  Simply, unable to forget the past, move on to the future.  It is hard to let go of the past, especially when it was bitter.  I have bitter experience with my neighbors, it is hard for me to let go without thinking of what they have done to us all this while, some that…

  • Saul also prophesied when God intervened

    Saul was told about it, and he sent more men, and they prophesied too. Saul sent men a third time, and they also prophesied. ~ 1 Samuel 19:21. This morning devotion, God is assuring of His presence even though the danger is near for He protects and cares. Saul was jealous on David’s success.  Although David has no intention to take over the kingship from Saul, but felt threaten as David was well loved and pleased by the people as they sang Saul took down thousand, David took many more thousands in one of the victory celebrations.  The evil spirit came upon Saul to kill David, for reason probably none other than…

  • Acts + S.O.A.P

    Paul, formerly known as Saul, an enemy that turned apostle of God began preaching the word of God and good news of Jesus to many, at first many refused to hear from him, as he was the former persecutor of God’s people. However, all changed when one can see God in Saul [at the beginning still call Saul, later his name was changed to Paul]. That’s how the journal of S.O.A.P [scripture, observation, application and prayer] has now entering the Book of Acts – that tells the apostolic age and Paul. (You many find the entries of S.O.A.P here and here) I am now on the third week of the…
