Day 40 : 禁食日记 / Fasting Diary (完结篇 / Conclusion)






“1:6 他 们 二 人 , 在 神 面 前 都 是 义 人 , 遵 行 主 的 一 切 诫 命 礼 仪 , 没 有 可 指 摘 的 。
1:7 只 是 没 有 孩 子 , 因 为 以 利 沙 伯 不 生 育 , 两 个 人 又 年 纪 老 迈 了 。
1:8 撒 迦 利 亚 按 班 次 , 在 神 面 前 供 祭 司 的 职 分 ,
1:9 照 祭 司 的 规 矩 掣 签 , 得 进 主 殿 烧 香 。
1:10 烧 香 的 时 候 , 众 百 姓 在 外 面 祷 告 。
1:11 有 主 的 使 者 站 在 香 坛 的 右 边 , 向 他 显 现 。
1:12 撒 迦 利 亚 看 见 , 就 惊 慌 害 怕 。
1:13 天 使 对 他 说 , 撒 迦 利 亚 , 不 要 害 怕 。 因 为 你 的 祈 祷 已 经 被 听 见 了 , 你 的 妻 子 以 利 沙 伯 要 给 你 生 一 个 儿 子 , 你 要 给 他 起 名 叫 约 翰 。”

Day 40 : Nov 11th (Fri)

What should I write to conclude? So many things to wite about and to say, so many feelings and thoughts…

In the evening, Pastor Raymond Mooi, our specially invited speaker from KL preached. A certain point touched me deeply, a reminder I must not forget for all my life.

Using Luke Chapter 1 as his background story, Pastor Raymond mentioned how the very faithful priest Zechariah and Elizabeth must have grown from being hopeful to totally hopelesss in their quest for a child. When they were already very old and not possible for Elizabeth to conceive anymore, no matter how disappointed, they did not stop serving God faithfully. Zechariah stayed true to the responsibility God had given him, faithfully serving in the position and place where God had entrusted him with. As a result God appeared to him at the place where God had assigned him to be. Because of his faithfulness, the God of wonders performed for him something that was not possible with men, ourselves or in the natural. The wife, Eliazabeth conceived and gave birth to a son!

The key is, when God comes looking for you at the position or place where you are supposed to be at, will you be there? Can He find you there? Are you a faithful person to God?
Therefore, if you really desire God to do a miracle for you, to satisfy you with the breakthrough you have been waiting for in your heart, or to relieve you of a great burden and problem, it is very important to be a person who stays true to your God-given gift and position!

“6 Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly.
7 But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old.
8 Once when Zechariah’s division was on duty and he was serving as priest before God,
9 he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense.
10 And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside.
11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense.
12 When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear.
13 But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John.”
