God Appreciates You 上帝祂顾惜你

Friday, April 9, 2021

Ephesians 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
以弗所书 1:4 就如神从创立世界以前,在基督里拣选了我们,使我们在祂面前成为圣洁,无有瑕疵。

My dear friends, right before you choose God, He has chosen you. He has chosen you right before you have any chance to make a mistake, and even when you were still a sinner, Christ died for you! Therefore, He loves you and chose you not because of your perfect performance but out of His unfailing love! Therefore, if you feel condemn today, be reminded that even before the creation of this world, God already has you in His heart, He called you as a darling, He sees you as precious, and you are His beloved! Nothing that you can do to make Him love you less! Therefore, know that because of Jesus perfect finished work, God sees you as holy and blameless in His sight! You can't be more perfect and holy than you are now, because it's all done by Jesus perfect performance and not yours! You are a wonder, unique and special, you are righteous, holy and blameless! Never depreciate yourself because God appreciates you!


Change What You Think 思想改变

Thursday, April 8, 2021

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
箴言 23:7 因为他心怎样思量,他为人就是怎样。

What you have been thinking lately? Are you thinking of how unworthy you are? Or are you thinking of how impossible that things can turn around for you? No matter what you have been thinking lately, remember one thing: what you think inside will eventually affect who you are externally. If you have been focusing on those issues and being negative in your thoughts, guess what, you will never look joyful, your countenance will be affected and of course everything outside will be affected by your one thought. ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬Therefore, If you long for a radical change in your life, have a radical change IN you first! You are what you think, therefore, keep your thoughts align with the Words of God, meditate and chew it day and night, and out of your belly shall explode a complete change effortlessly! All you need to do is to keep yourself and your mind in the thoughts of God, which means to think of His Words, what He says about you, and how much He loves you, and it will change your life completely. Jesus is the transformation maker, and He is in you! So, when He is in you, when you keep your thought captivated to His words only, change will birth out, don't worry! ‬‬‬‬


Never Be Put To Shame 不至于羞愧

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Romans 10:11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
‭‭‬‬‬‬‬‬罗马书 10: 11 经上说: 凡信祂的人必不至于羞愧。

Shame is never ever from God. When one is in shame, he is under a state of condemnation, and unable to lift up his head and live life boldly. There are so many to be fearful of, and definitely that's not the life that God has called us to have! My dear friends, Jesus is the lifter of your head, whatever shame that you may be having in the past, no matter how many things that made you unable to lift up your head, know that Jesus came to turnaround your life! Instead of shame, He is giving you honor, instead of fear He has given you boldness and courage! Therefore, as you believe and trust in Him, be assured that nothing can put you to shame anymore! But instead, know that in Christ, you're crowned with righteousness and you're from glory to glory! ‬‬


The Shoes Of Peace 平安的鞋

Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Ephesians 6:15 And with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
以弗所书 6:15 又用平安的福音当作预备走路的鞋穿在脚上。

Dear friend, have you put on the shoes that enable you to walking forward? There is a lot of times when we are wearing the shoes with famous brand that you can name of (which symbolize the steps we take with anxious and worries by self-effort in our daily lives), always cause us to walk with extra carefulness that lead to heavy laden and pressure especially when we are walking through the place full of mud. Instead of making ourselves not convenient, why not we put on the "The Shoes of Peace" that used to wear and walk freely across the mud, right? After the above illustration, can you relate it back to your daily life? Instead of taking every step of life with worries and awareness that burden us, why not we let god and let God? Instead of striving and struggling, why not we put our trust on the God who never fails us? Now is the time for you to decide and move on, beloved! Let's choose to walk your life with the word of God and the good news that God has given to you daily. The gospel of peace leads you to the promised land without heavy burdens and worries. Though you might face problems each day, but you can put your trust in God and rely on Him instead of yourself. Let's put on the shoes of peace and move forward readily with peace, joy and love. In Him, we found hope and grace that sustains us in time of our need. Praise the Lord!

亲爱的朋友,你穿上那使你能前进的鞋了吗?很多时候当我们穿着各种名牌的鞋子(也就代表着我们每走一步都是靠着自己战战兢兢地走过每一天),使我们每走一步都在担心接下来会如何,尤其 是当我们走在烂泥的路上时,更是害怕自己的鞋子会弄肮脏。既然会让自己那么麻烦,我们何不穿上那双“平安的鞋”呢?穿上那样的一双鞋,我们就能自在地走过那烂泥路了,对吗?经过以上的陈述,你能把它连接回你的日常生活吗?与其走人生的每一步都带着忧虑和重担,我们何不尝试放手让神来接手?与其挣扎受苦,我们何不相信那从不会让我们失望的神呢?亲爱的,现在是时候选择和前进了!选择以神的话和来自祂的好消息来走我们的每一天吧!那平安的福音引我们到那应许之地,且是不附加重担和忧虑的。纵然每一天我们都会面对问题,但你可以选择信靠神,依靠祂而不是依靠自己有限的能力。让我们穿上那平安的鞋继续带着平安、喜乐和爱不断地前进。在祂里面,我们找着那时刻在我们需要的时候,托住我们的希望和恩典。赞美主!

Linger In His Presence 在祂同在里

Monday, April 5, 2021

Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemy before you, saying, “Destroy Him!
申命记33:27 永生的神是你的居所,祂永久的膀臂在你以下;祂在你前面撵出仇敌,说:毁灭吧!

If you are in the midst of frustration, fear and worry now, all you need is to begin to linger in the peaceful presence of God. Knowing that He is always with you makes so much difference to your reaction in life. The moment when you choose to relax in His everlasting arms, and know that how safe and secure you are, fear ceases and worry fades. Jesus is the only solid foundation that you can rely on, and do you know what? The moment when you choose to enjoy in His very presence, it produces joy and unmeasured fullness in your life!! You will start to praise Him, your heart will delight in Him, and you will celebrate His ultimate presence! Linger in His presence today, and know that you are always safe and secure in His everlasting arms! Amen!


Believe, Receive And Give Thanks 相信,领受并感恩

Sunday, April 4, 2021

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves but it is the gift of God.
以弗所书2:8 你们得救是本乎恩,也因着信,这并不是出于自己,乃是神所赐的。

The kingdom of God is never about earning and deserving, but it is about believing and receiving. Do you know that it is never by your effort that you have salvation? You are never good enough to deserve the kingdom of God if you are going to earn it by your hard work. If it is by work, it will no longer be grace. If you get it by effort, you have to sustain it by your effort. However, thanks be to God that we have Jesus! Because of Jesus' accomplishment, because of this one man who died for us, we are now sure that we are saved by grace (Ephesians 2:8), and therefore, now it is a matter of believing and receiving! Jesus has perfectly done it at the cross, and our work now is to believe (John 6:29). Therefore, instead of trying on your own, start to depend on His grace and believe in Him. Let Him be the central of your life, and encounter His grace and love each day! Now is the matter of believing, receiving and thanking Him! Amen!


You Lack No Good Thing 你什么好处都不缺

Saturday, April 3, 2021

Psalm 34:10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
诗篇 34:10 少壮狮子还缺食忍饿;但寻求耶和华,什么好处都不缺。

You who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Bible says that as you seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all things shall be added to your life (Matthew 6:33). John 1:1 shows us that God is the Word and the Word is God. To seek the Lord, you are to seek the word. How much time you spent the Word is how much time you spent in the Lord. Meditating the word is fellowshipping with God. As you seek first His Word, being in His presence, you shall lack no good thing. Father God, the lions may grow weak and hungry, but as I seek you, I shall lack no good thing. Thank you for adding all that I need into my life. Today, I am to keep your word in my heart and meditate it day and night. You word is living and active and it brings healing to my body. Thank you for giving me your word. Amen!


Alive! 活过来!

Friday, April 2, 2021

Romans 5:10 For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
罗马书 5:10 因为我们作仇敌的时候,且藉着神儿子的死,得与神和好;既已和好,就更要因祂的生得救了。

What a great news to all of us! That because of Adam's sin, we used to be God's enemies, we were separated from Christ. However, through Jesus' once and for all sacrifice at the cross, through His death, we are now reconciled to Him! Therefore, you are no longer separated from health, from abundance, from peace, from goodness and favor, from eternal life; but you are now reconciled with good health, abundance , peace, goodness and favor and eternal life! You have all that you need pertaining life, just because of Jesus' willingness and His perfect sacrifice at the cross! Because of Him, we are now no longer under the power and dominion of the darkness, but now we are under the dominion of light! Whatever is of Christ is now of you! So my friend, behold Jesus from time to time, and you shall see whatever that is dead is your life is now alive!


You Triumphed 你已经得胜了

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Psalm 118:7 The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies.
诗篇 118:7 在那帮助我的人中,有耶和华帮助我,所以我要看见那恨我的人遭报。

What kind of enemies that you are facing right now? Maybe you see it so great that you find no solutions to settle, or you may be thinking that it is impossible for you to enjoy breakthroughs, but do know that with man it may be impossible, but with God it is possible! Nothing can be greater than Jesus, be it sicknesses, or lacking, or family issues, nothing is too big that He cannot solve for you! Therefore, all you need to do is to look upon Jesus, knowing that He is your Helper, and He also sent Holy Spirit to help you! When The Lord is with you, whom shall you afraid? Who can be against you? For He will lift you up high and triumphed over all enemies! Through the love of Christ, you are more than a conqueror!


Great Is You Faithfulness 祢的诚实何其广大

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

耶利米哀歌 3:22-23 我们不致消灭,是出于耶和华诸般的慈爱,是因祂的怜悯不致断绝。每早晨都是新的,祢的诚实何其广大。
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassion never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.

Even when we are faithless, God remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13). His compassion never fail, His love for you is great. Because of His great love for us, we can be as bold as a lion. We can move forward. We can let go the past. We can be sure that our tomorrow will be better. Our year to come will be better. People may fail us but God will not. People may not understand us but God understands. People may not help us but God will not stop helping us. People may not show compassion but our God is a God full of compassion. When the King of the kings and the Lord of the lords says He loves you, you shall know that everything is going to be alright. Amen!

耶利米书 29:11“耶和华说:“我知道我向你们所怀的意念是赐平安的意念, 不是降灾祸的意念,要叫你们末后有指望。””

God Is The Shepherd Of Your Life 神是你生命的牧者

Monday, March 29, 2021

Psalm 28:9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
诗篇 28:9 求祢拯救祢的百姓,赐福给祢的产业,牧养他们,扶持他们,直到永远。

God is the shepherd of your life and you shall never lack (Psalm 23:1). A shepherd watches over the sheep and therefore, He watches over your life. He is here to make sure that you are well taken care of and you are always in good hand. He is here to bless you and keep you from all harm. God carries you not just a day, not just two days, not just three days, not just a week, not just a month but He carries you forever! When He carries you, He will never let go! Dear God, Thank you for being my very good and loving shepherd. With you as a shepherd leading me, I know I will never be in want, I know I will never be down. You have saved me and blessed me. With you carrying me forever, I know I am secured in you. Amen!


Seasoned In Salt 用盐调和

Sunday, March 28, 2021

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversations be always full of grace, seasoned in salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
歌罗西书 4:6 你们的言语要常常带着和气,好像用盐调和,就可以知道该怎样回答各人。

No matter where you are, be reminded that you are the child the God Most High. You are set apart to rise and shine. When people see you, they see God. When people see, they praise God. Therefore, let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned in salt. Let’s start by praising people around you. A word “well done” or a word “thank you” may lift a person up. Let us not hesitate in doing so because an act of kindness can always change a person’s life. Instead of complaining, let’s give thanks. Instead of speaking words of defeat, let’s speak forth words of victory. Instead of telling people about the negative, let’s be positive. Amen!

Friday, March 26, 2021

John 11:25-26 “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” ”
约翰福音11:25-26 “耶稣对他说:“復活在我,生命也在我。信我的人,虽然死了,也必復活。” 凡活着信我的人必永远不死。你信这话吗?”

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
马太福音 6:34 所以,不要为明天忧虑,因为明天自有明天的忧虑,一天的难处一天当就够了。

If no one can add any single second to his life through worrying, why will you still stuck in all those fears and worries when Christ has set you free? Jesus said do not worry about tomorrow, why? Because of you're worrying about tomorrow, you'll eventually lose your today. You'll be enjoy your every single day to the fullest! Instead, you'll spend your time and energy wasting on what will happen tomorrow, what am I going to do, what will happen to my children, and do you know that in which area that you're worrying, in that area you cannot grow!

Under His Care 在祂翅膀的荫下

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him.
罗马书 10:12 犹太人和希利尼人,并没有分别。因为众人同有一位主,祂也厚待一切求告祂的人。

God shows no favoritism and He does not bless you and supply you based on you, but He blesses you and supplies you based on what Jesus has done. The covenant between God and you cannot be removed, for Jesus is the one completing this covenant for you. Therefore you are to be sure that in this covenant, you are His responsibility and concern. For whatever concerns you now concerns Him, He is The Lord of all! And He loves you unfailingly! So No matter what is your need today, Jesus has heard you. He has heard the cries in your heart, He has heard your ultimate needs, He has heard your pain. He is The Lord of your life, you're His responsibility and you're under His care. Call to Him today, and believe that He richly blesses you with goodness far more than you can ask and imagine! Under His care, you shall fear not!‬‬‬‬‬‬ Amen!‬‬‬‬‬


The Key To Faith 信心启动被的钥匙

Monday, March 22, 2021

Mark 11:22 Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.
马可福音 11: 22 耶稣回答说:“你们当信服神。”

Faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of God. It is obvious that faith comes not by our own will and effort either, rather, it comes when we keep ourselves connected to Jesus. Why? Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, which means, it is Jesus who initiates the faith in us, it is Jesus who carries it on and it is Jesus who completes it! Therefore, when you look at yourself, faith cannot arise. But when you look at Jesus, faith comes! ‬‬My friends, faith empowers you to see things that are not as though they are; instead of having faith on yourself, have faith on the finished work of Jesus today! When He is in victory, so are you; when He is healthy, so are you now! Look at Jesus, and that's the key to faith! ‬‬‬‬‬‬


Because Of His Mercy 因着祂的怜悯

Sunday, March 21, 2021

提多书 3:5 祂便救了我们,并不是因我们自己所行的义,乃是照祂的怜悯,藉着重生的洗和圣灵的更新。
Titus 3:5 He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy, He saved us through the washing or rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

你得救不是因着你行了很多善事;你得救不是因为你有很好的表现;你得救不是因为你配得。今天,你得救乃是因为神爱你。祂爱你,祂不撇下你。所以,当你还没有做任何事来拯救你自己以先,神已经差遣祂的独生爱子为你被钉死在十字架。今天,你只需要单单的来到祂的面前,你就会发现你是被拯救的,你是被所祂爱的,你是被祝福的,只单单一个原因 – 祂爱你,祂对你满有怜悯。阿们!

You are saved not because of the righteous things you had done. You are saved not because you performed well. You are saved not because you earned. Today, you are saved simply because God loves you. He shows mercy towards you. God wants you and He never you go. Therefore, before you can do anything to save yourself, He saved you by sending His one and only Son to the cross. Simply come to Him today and you will realized that you are saved, loved and blessed all because of one person – He loves and He shows mercy. Amen!
