2012 禁食日记 – 第24天: “能被信任” 2012 Fasting Diary – Day 24: “Trustworthy”






“4 约瑟就在主人眼前蒙恩,伺候他主人,并且主人派他管理家务,把一切所有的都交在他手里。 自从主人派约瑟管理家务和他一切所有的,耶和华就因约瑟的缘故赐福于那埃及人的家;凡家里和田间一切所有的,都蒙耶和华赐福。 波提乏将一切所有的都交在约瑟的手中,除了自己所吃的饭,别的事一概不知。。。”
~ 创 39:4-6 ~


 Day 24 (30/08/12)

Quite a few Christians, they might seem rather “spiritual” in church, good at “worshipping” and “serving” etc, but when it comes to practical living, whether at home or work place, they do not seem to be trusted and respected that much. If so, then we would have to examine whether we are really full of God’s Spirit, or our own “spirit” or merely “acting” in church? Because in the Bible, those who were truly “spiritual” or had the presence of God, under normal circumstances, they would definitely be trusted and respected.

The Spirit of God is wise, creative, holy and almighty, so if we are really filled with His Spirit, can we not be outstanding and trustworthy?

“4 Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field. So he left in Joseph’s care everything he had; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.”
~ Gen 39:4-6 ~

2012 禁食日记 – 第23天: “神同在” 2012 Fasting Diary – Day 23: “God’s presence”




约瑟住在他主人埃及人的家中,耶和华与他同在,他就百事顺利。 他主人见耶和华与他同在,又见耶和华使他手里所办的尽都顺利”
~ 创 39:2-3 ~






Day 23 (29/08/12)

“2 The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did”
~ Gen 39:2-3 ~

The Bible clearly shows us the result of having the presence of God: Success in everything! And not only that, people can “see” God is with you!
This was one thing very obvious about Joseph’s life, but success in everything does not mean therefore your life is very comfortable and without any worries or troubles!

In actual fact, Joseph went through a lot of sufferings, but in the midst of his sufferings, jobs handed to him would be completed with great success. The main reason was God was with him. However, there is always a reason as to why God is with someone!

In Joseph’s most difficult moments, he would still be looking to God, trusting Him, not doubting or grumbling, and he did not sin against God… Therefore, let us not just envy or desire his “success in everything” as the Lord was with him, let us first learn his life and endurance…

2012 禁食日记 – 第22天: “忧愁” 2012 Fasting Diary – Day 22: “Troubled”





~ 约 12:27 ~


Day 22 (28/08/12)

When our heart is troubled, or when we feel defeated and our thoughts get a little disturbed, we would tend to have thoughts of giving up our pursuit and endeavour. If we continue to think negatively, then some people would really give up, or some begin to go the wrong direction as their visions are blurred. Therefore, it is very crucial to know our calling clearly, to maintain an intimate relationship with God, to know how to pray to God to increase our strength and to encourage us.

In fact, Jesus did have moments when He felt troubled or “at a crossroads” too; at such a time, He quickly focussed His eyes on the Father, so He could see clearly again. When your perspective and goal are right, you would be able to carry on the journey…

““Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.”
~ John 12:27 ~
