Day 11 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary
Day 11 : Oct 13th (Thur)
The prompting in my heart today as I led the prayer meeting… May God stretch our hearts that we may still encourage others even in our weakest moment, and bless others when we are the most lacking; and to do all these purely out of love and concern, not thinking about any return or how God is going to reward us…
We also proclaimed one of the points in our Blessed Vision: “That all nations will be blessed through us”.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
This is the promise God gave Abraham, and the Bible tells us that we are Abraham’s descendants. Therefore this promise comes on us too. I believe “a great nation” can also mean whatever we do will be extended and blessed in order that we can become a blessing to even more people.
But what is Abraham’s descendant? It is someone with faith to believe in God no matter what. But I believe for Abraham to become such a great nation and so blessed, he not only had great faith, he had a very big heart that blessed others too!
God blessed Abraham, and He wanted Abraham to bless others as well. As Abraham’s descendants, we must live this out in order to be truly living in God’s will.
“One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
