Day 12 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary
～ 加拉太书6:1-2 ～
Day 12 : Oct 14th (Fri)
For a few nights I did not have seemingly very special dreams, last night as usual I prayed: O God, if You want to speak to me through dreams, then please do…
When I woke up in the morning, I felt God did not speak, there was no impression of or any dream I feel special. While reading the Bible during my devotional time, I asked God for the direction in today’s noon-time prayer. Suddenly one scene of my dream last night appeared in my mind, followed by some verses… Yes! God did speak!
I dreamt of two unexpected young people fasting together with us, especially one who is very far from God now, and I do not even see him in church sometimes. In the dream, he looked very thin, he said he is also fasting together with us. I was very surprised! It felt like he was on fire like before, I was very happy… but what I see in reality at the moment is not so.
When this dream reappeared in my mind, immediately the following verses came to my mind too:
“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
~ Galatians 6:1-2 ~
Too many times, we tend to be critical and judgmental toward those who have back-slidden, fallen or turned cold. Today, God reminded us, He still loves them, and we should pray for them and try our best to restore them with a gentle loving heart.
Also, verse 2 says “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”… Suddenly realized it is such a simple thing to fulfill the law of Christ…
