思念上面的事

Friday, October 24, 2014

西 3:2 - 你们要思念上面的事,不要思念地上的事。

地上的事无非是劳苦愁烦,喜怒哀乐,而这一切,转眼就已成空,很快就过去了。其实,在这世上没有一样东西是永远长存,是不改变的。唯有神的话,神的话是永远长存并且是永不改变的。从前是如此,现在是如此,以后也是如此,因为我们的神非人,必不致说谎;也非人子,必不致后悔。祂说话岂不照着行呢?祂发言岂不要成就呢?(民 23:19)祂口所出的话绝不徒然返回的,却要成就祂所喜悦的(赛 55:11),而今天,祂所喜悦的就是我们的信心。当我们相信祂的话,并且照着祂的话而行,祂的喜乐就没有比这个更大的了。(希 11:6,约三:4)

朋友们,上面的事就是神的话。当我们开始默想神的话,把它刻在心版上,谨守遵行,我们的道路便可以亨通,凡事顺利。如何默想神的话?就是天天的对自己说神的应许,天天的把神的话挂在嘴边,我们的口也要常说赞美的话,我们的心要常常称颂祂。就算在我们的生活上面对问题,我们仍然要一直的宣告神的话,知道我们看见改变,总要坚定地相信,因为神已做成祂所应许我们的。就算医药报告不乐观,仍要对自己说:神是我的医治,是我的帮助,是我的荣耀;就算处于四面受敌,仍要告诉自己:神是我们的盾牌,是我们的避难所,更是我们的隐秘处;就算口袋空空,仍要对自己说:耶和华是我的牧者,我必不至缺乏,在基督里我们是一无所缺的。因此,无论我们什么样的环境中,当我们坚定地相信,凭信心去领受,必要看见我们的生命得以改变。

所以,让我们的思想专注在对的地方,就是思念上面的事,就是默想神的话。当我们这样行的时候,必吃地上的美物。阿门!

听见雨水的声音

Friday, October 24, 2014

列王紀上 18:41 以利亞对亞哈說:「你現在可以上去吃喝,因為有多雨的响声了。」

在列王纪上第18章里叙述,撒瑪利亞当时的飢荒非常严重,三年半的時間,没有雨水。可以想像,人民的生活是多么困苦,勉強存活。直到先知以利亞出現,对亞哈王說:「我听到豪雨的响声了!」(列王纪下18:41)。 当他这么说时,天空沒有一朵雲,沒有任何下雨的征兆,但他选择了相信灵里听到的声音。凭眼所見,是一片荒芜,飢荒和貧困,但在灵裡,卻已得富足。(参阅列王纪下18:41-46)

這就是信心的彰显。

你一定要相信神所说的一切话,即使你眼前所見是与现在遭遇相反的。你在圣经里看见丰盛,但眼裡所見可能是缺乏;圣经说我们是灵魂体都兴盛的,但你却是病痛缠身。你在灵里听见雨声,但你环顾四周,看到的卻是旱災。该如何呢?
以利亞就在迦密山山顶。他叫仆人去看看在山的另一边,是否有下雨的跡像。他將信心放在一切行动之上,他渴望改变。仆人回來說:【我什么都没有看见,不会下雨了】。以利亞並沒有氣馁。他沒有认为:【哦,一定是我听错了】。他叫仆人回去再看看。他去了,回來說了同样的话:【毫無雲彩】。來來回回共六次。终于在第七次,才看见一小片云从海里上来,不过如人手那样大而已。

约翰福音20:29耶稣也告诉我们:【你因看见了我才信,那没有看见就信的有福了】!啊们!

如果要看到生命大大的突破,就应当留心听神的話,不是人的话。不要让沮丧和消极的話生根发芽,反而要让神的话扎根建造。人不能決定你的命运,你的生命在神手中(诗篇31:15)。上帝不要你留在原地,祂有一個新的眼光。相信祂,雨後必帶來祝福。哈利路亚!

You Have The Last Laugh

Thursday, October 23, 2014

1 Peter 1:8b - ... though you do not [even] now see Him, you believe in Him and exult and thrill with inexpressible and glorious [triumphant, heavenly] joy.

The Word of God is the best evidence and proof that you can realise your victory in Christ. The more you spend time in the Word, you will find out your true identity in Christ. Therefore, though you do not now see Jesus, you believe in Him because of the Word of God! He will watch over His Word is make sure that it accomplishes in your life and His Word stands for eternity! Hence, rejoicing is an action of faith. You can rejoice and thrill because you already have what need to have in Christ! The moment when you rejoice in the Lord, you are believing in Jesus' finishes work! And one can only rejoice and thrill because he already has it! Therefore, you can laugh at that sickness, bad reports, problems, poverty for the joy of the Lord is your strength! You are the one who has the last laugh, not the devil! Hence, declare with faith today that "I've triumphant and heavenly kind of joy, I laugh at that sicknesses, bad reports and problems, for I already have victory in Christ, hahahahaha!"

Believe, Receive & Give Thanks

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

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.

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 centre of your life, and encounter His grace and love each day! Now is the matter of believing, receiving and thanking Him!

栽种与浇灌

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

林前 3:6 - 我栽种了,亚波罗浇灌了,惟有神叫祂生长。

若要看到一棵树长大,结果子,首先要先栽种种子。唯有栽种了,才能看见它生根发芽,才能看见它成长。而今天,在我们的生命中,我们若要看到我们的生命是美好的,是丰盛的,我们也要开始栽种了,而这种子就是神的话。当我们栽种了,我们就要浇灌,而浇灌就是我们要默想神的话,昼夜思想,把它深植在我们心中,直到它发芽。我们不能一栽种,就要看见它随时长大成树,而是需要时间让它成长,而昼夜思想神的话就是它成长的唯一办法。

今天,我们要在我们的生命中栽种那好的果子。我们要有仁爱,喜乐,和平,忍耐,良善,信实,温柔,节制等圣灵的果子,我们就必须把它们栽种在我们里面。这一切的果子不能自己成长,除非我们先把它们栽种了,浇灌了,然后我们就能看到这些果子在我们的生命中结出来,并且是丰盛的。当我们的种子发芽生根,当它们开始结果的时候,你就看见你的生命不再一样了,会变得越来越好。

朋友们,当我们昼夜思想神的话,就如同一颗树栽在溪水旁,按时候结果子,叶子也不枯干,凡我们所作的尽都顺利。(诗 1:2-3)所以,从此刻开始,选择对的种子栽种在我们的生命里,我们必要看见当我们有对的选择,对的相信,必定有对的人生。阿门!

自由的生命

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

在新約中,有一個关于一个行淫时被捉的女人的事件。当時的宗教領袖都认定她应该被石頭砸死。他們好奇耶穌會如何做,为要试探耶稣,要找到告祂的把柄。於是把她带到耶稣面前,但耶穌的反应卻让眾人大吃一惊。
耶稣没有谴责那個女人,也没有定她的罪,反而表明出爱與怜悯。耶穌对眾人說:【你們當中誰沒有犯過罪,誰就先拿石頭打她】。他們听見这话,就一个一个地走了,從老到少,最后只剩下耶穌和那女人在那里。
耶穌就对那女人说:【妇人,他們都哪里去了?沒有人定你的罪吗】?她回答說:【主啊,沒有】。耶穌說了一句意义深长的话:【我也不定你的罪。去吧!別再犯罪了】! 这说明,也許世人為你貼上許多标签,但我(耶稣)卻是那位可以释放妳,使妳自由的神。
参阅約翰福音8:1-11

你都会到要拿石頭砸你的人,但那绝对不是神。祂永远不会对你指指点点,数算你的罪。祂爱你,賜你自由的生命。也許你犯了錯誤,也许做了一些事情令你感到羞愧,也許你已经饱受伤害与指控。但今天你可以释放那些傷害,敞开心房接受爱和寬恕。
只要我們活着,就会有指责的声音临到。當負面声音來的时候,我們可以选择相信它們,並一直深陷在谴责里,又或者我們可以选择相信上帝,走在自由的道路上。我們有选择的权利(申命记30:19)。
明白你的价值在哪裡,也明白上帝所賜予給你的(创世记30:17,约翰福音10:10)。生命太短暫,不要將恐惧和谴责浪費了你的生命。你应该放下那些傷害,选择住在神的爱与真理中,去信靠祂,因為在祂里面你才能得着真自由(约翰福音8:32)。

Firm In Christ

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Psalm 40:2 - He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and give me a firm place to stand.

The world is rapidly changing from time to time, the more you focus on the things of the world, the more unsteady you will feel. Therefore, instead of looking around you and rely on things that are not constant and rapidly changing, look to Jesus, the one who can provide you what the world cannot. As you draw near to Him, you will find that in Him is secure and firm. Jesus sets your feet on a rock, He is the Rock, your Fortress, your Stronghold, and the moment when you take refuge in Him, you will find sufficiency in Him! Today, know that He shall lift you out of the slimy pit and out of the mud and mire, you are not called to stay in the pit and the mud, you are called to be on high! Let Jesus set you on a rock, which is Him and which is His Word, and from there you shall find a firm place and nothing in this world can shake it! In Christ, you are secure and firm!

He Holds You

Monday, October 20, 2014

Isaiah 41:13 - For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear, I will help you.

Many of times we will tend to grasp and control and trying to make things happen by our own effort, but in the end you will realise that if it has to be done through your effort, it has to be maintained through your effort too. Therefore, many live life being tired and not excited. But do you know what? As a child of God, God does not want you to be dependant on yourself, He wants you to be dependant on Him. Instead of trying to take control yourself, open your hands and release that matter to God and let Him takes charge. You know what, when God takes charge, He can turn impossible into possible, He can turn water into wine, He can turn five loaves and two fishes into twelve basketful of leftover! All you need to do is to enjoy in His presence, enjoy that peace from Him, and seeing things in the light of His love. When you grasp His hand like a child depending on his father, He is always there holding your hand and tell you, "Do not afraid my child, I will help you."

永远的产业

Monday, October 20, 2014

诗 16:5-6 - 耶和华是我的产业,是我杯中的分;我所得的,你为我持守。用绳量给我的地界,坐落在佳美之处;我的产业实在美好。

很多时候,人们总认为产业是你所看得到,你所拥有的一切外在的事物。其实,我们的产业不单是外在的一切,在我们的灵里更是有个永不动摇,也不会失去的产业,就是我们的神。这个产业是永不磨灭的,是不会失去的,不但如此,当这份产业在我们生命中彰显的时候,更要吸引我们外在的产业,总而言之,神就是我们所拥有,里外的产业,当我们有了耶稣,我们就拥有一切。俗语有句话说:得财容易,守财难。但是有了耶稣,我们所得的祂都为我们持守。祂把祂智慧和启示的灵赏给我们,并且圣经里很清楚的告诉我们,赚取货财的能力是从神而来的。因此,有了耶稣,我们就有了一切。

朋友们,耶稣基督已为我们预备了一切,我们所需的从来都不曾少,并且是给我们超乎我们所求所想的。我们要清楚地知道,我们所拥有的一切都是从神而来,我们的好处不在祂以外。(诗 16:2)耶稣基督已预备了所有的一切产业,所以凡信祂的人,都是神的后嗣,是继承产业的一群,而这些人,就是我们相信的人。今天,当我们有了耶稣,我们所需的一样都不缺,而祂所赐的福,是使人富足,并且不加上忧虑的。(箴 10:22)当我们有了耶稣,我们的身心灵都是健壮的。当我们有了耶稣,我们就有生命,并且是更加丰盛的生命。当我们有了耶稣,在人与人之间我们有了跟密切的关系。当我们有了耶稣,在我们生命中没有难成的事!而这所有的一切,都是耶稣基督所为我们预备好的产业,是没有人能夺去的。

因此,我们要紧紧跟随耶稣基督,谨守遵行祂的一切话。这样,我们的道路可以亨通,凡事顺利,并且是得胜有余的。阿门!

你预备好了吗?

Monday, October 20, 2014

诗篇31:19说:“敬畏你、投靠你的人,你為他们所积存的, 在世人面前所施行的恩惠是何等大呢”!

你知道吗?你這一生所有的祝福都由上帝所計劃安排好了嗎?诗篇121:4说那位爱护我们的神,是不打盹,也不睡觉的。祂是要赐福与你,给你更美好的生命。在人面前,你有恩惠与慈爱,凡你所到之处,机会的大门为你而开;在人群中,你散发香气,有影响力。这一切都非靠势力,非靠才能,乃是上帝的荣耀从你生命中彰显出来(撒迦利亚书4:6)。
當你在祝福裡,你無法摆脱上帝所要加添給你的好事。在人与人之間、不公平的对待、 甚至是你過去所犯的錯误等,這些都不能拦阻上帝的祝福临到。祂说有,就有;说是,就是(诗篇33:9)。你会经历下雨般的祝福,如同以赛亚书55:10说的,雨雪从天而降,并不返回,却滋润地土,使地上发芽结实,使撒种的有种,使要吃的有粮。你的生命就如同这样。
现在开始,从神的话去认识这位全能的上帝吧,在这话语里扎根,享受与祂交流的过程,让你的心思意念天天的被更新,更倾向于上帝的慈爱与美好。啊们!

From Deserts Into Eden

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Isaiah 51:3 - The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.

Do you know that the God that you believe in is a God of turn around? Regardless what kind of situation that you are in now, and how bad it is, remember that Jesus is here to comfort you! Thus, you have to be very sure that He will surely, He will definitely comfort you! He will make your deserts like Eden, be it the deserts that you are seeing right now is your finance, your health or your family, He wants to turn all that dryness and unfruitfulness into Eden! and Eden means fruitfulness! He wants to turn your poverty into prosperity, He wants to turn your fear into joy, He wants to turn your sicknesses into health, He wants to turn whatever that is unfruitful into fruitfulness! Because of that, your life will be full of joy and gladness, thanksgiving and the sound of singing! You can have joy and gladness, you can give thanks, you can sing, because you know you have received it! That's the life that God wants you to have! Therefore, cling to Him today just like a branch connecting to its vine, let the Word remain in you (John 15:7) and ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you!

Love Break

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Jeremiah 31:3 - I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Instead of thinking that no one loves you today, be reminded that you are loved and Jesus is the one who loves you unconditionally! When you are still sinner, Christ chose to die for you (Romans 5:8), that was how he showed His love towards you. Therefore, the next time when you feel that you are alone and nobody really cares, remember that Jesus loves you with an everlasting love. This love is unconditional, and it is everlasting. His promises for you will stand forever, and He is faithful in keep His Words! We have lunch break and tea break along the day, and if today you are tired and heavy laden, remember to take a love break by remembering how much that you are loved by Jesus! This love break and this reminder empowers you to move on in life, and live life like a victor! Jesus has drawn you, now choose to draw near and be connected with Him! Take a love break and enjoy that sweet time with Jesus!!

称谢神

Saturday, October 18, 2014

诗118:1 你们要称谢耶和华,因他本为善,他的慈爱永远长存。
帖前5:18 凡事谢恩,因为这是神在基督里向我们所定的旨意。

亲爱的朋友,不管你现在身在何处,不论你在经历什么,记得一件事“称谢神”。
虽然你会有生病的时候,但你当称谢神因为耶稣已经医治你;
纵然你有软弱的时候,你也当称谢神因为耶稣已经刚强了你;
或许你有缺乏的时候,但你当称谢神因为耶稣已经供应你;
也许你会有迷失方向的时候,理应称谢神因为耶稣是你的方向。。。

朋友,无时无刻感谢神,因他是我们的全部。
不论何事,称谢神并且默想神的话,让神那超自然的能力彰显!
在他里面,你是完全被保护的!
在他里面,你是满有恩惠,大被祝福,深深被爱的!

Give Thanks To The Lord

Friday, October 17, 2014

Psalms 118:1 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
1Thes 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

Dear friend, regardless where are you right now, no matter what you are going through, remember one thing 'GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD".
Although you might be sick sometimes, give thanks to the Lord for Jesus has healed you;
Although you might be weak sometimes, give thanks to the Lord for Jesus has strengthened you;
Although you might be in lack sometimes, give thanks to the Lord for Jesus has provided you;
Although you might be lost sometimes, give thanks to the Lord for Jesus is your direction...

Give thanks to the Lord, friend, He is our all in all.
No matter what, give thanks to the Lord and meditate on the words of God that manifest the tremendous power of God!
In Him, you are well protected!
In Him, you are highly favored, greatly blessed and deeply loved!

话的能力

Friday, October 17, 2014

希 11:3 - 我们因着信,就知道诸世界是藉神话造成的,这样,所看见的,并不是从显然之物造出来的。

神的话是大有能力的,是不落空的。当祂说有,就有;命立,就立。(诗 33:9)神的话就是神的思想,神的意念。同样的今天,我们身为神的孩子们,我们也有与神拥有相同的能力,因为祂如何,我们在这世上也如何。(约一 4:17)更何况我们如今有那宝贝住在我们里面,是要显出莫大的能力是出于神。因此,若要看见我们的生命里成就些什么,首先要先从我们的思想开始。若我们要看见健康,就不要无痛呻吟;若我们要看见富足,就不要常把缺乏挂在口中;若要看见好的关系,就不要常常无中生有,要学习信任,尊重对方。在彼前3:10也告诉我们,若要享美福,就要禁止我们的舌头不出恶言,不说诡诈的话。因为生死在舌头的权下,喜爱它的必吃它所结的果子。(箴 18:21)今天,我们的脑海里想什么,我们的口就会出什么,而我们的话是带着能力的,所以我们要控制我们的思想,控制我们的舌头。凭着我们自己是乎有点难,但是若我们的灵是被神的话给充满,当我们的灵是强盛的,我们的魂,就是我们的思想,就能被控制了。

不但如此,神的话使我们看见并知道神的应许。而我们必须去相信,然后是放在我们的生命中。我们要如何去相信神的话?首先我们要先明白,当神的话一解开,就发出亮光,使我们通达。(诗 119:130)当我们明白,我们就能相信,相信了我们就能领受。要永远记得,人的诺言是有限度的,唯有神对我们的诺言,应许是永不改变的,并且出于神的话没有一句是不带能力的。(路 1:37)今天当我们的口一直的在赞美,一直的在说造就建立人的话,一直宣告好的事,你肯定看见你的生命是享美福的。阿门!

你的指望不至断绝

Friday, October 17, 2014

箴言23:18 因为至终必有善报,你的指望也不致断绝。
帖前5:24 那召你们的本是信实的,祂必成就这事。

当黑雲笼罩天空,我们当不定睛于眼前的黑暗,而是用属灵的眼睛去看背后的蓝天。事情無論怎樣糟糕都好,都不会断了指望,因为在耶稣那里总会有出路,祂救赎了我们,就必拯救我们到底,让我们还活着的时候,有能力与勇气跨越困境,胜过挑战。无论日子如何,我们的力量也必如何,祂的恩典够我们使用(申命记33:25,哥林多后书12:9)。
放弃很容易,因为什么都不需要做,但坚持需要勇气,需要付出,但是当你坚守所承认的指望,不丢弃勇敢的心时,必得大赏赐,你必然要看见上帝的荣耀彰显在身上。医治显明了,富足显明了,一切你所渴望的都显明了。哈利路亚!
如果中途就放弃了,那么之前所有的坚持与守望不都白费了吗?虽然我们看不见耶稣,但祂的能力是真的。祂在我们生命中是真实存在的,而我们也要真真实实的活在祂里面。啊们!

彼得前书1:8你们虽然没有见过祂,却是爱祂。如今虽不得看见,却因信祂就有说不出来,满有荣光的大喜乐。

Surrounded by Favour

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Psalm 5:12 - Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous, you surround them with your favour as with a shield.

Do you know that the moment when you accepted Jesus, you are called as the righteous? Righteousness is not what you can earn with your bare hands or with your effort, for no one can achieve salvation by his own, but only through one man Jesus Christ. Righteousness is a gift from God (Romans 5:17), God has given you this right standing in front of Him when you accept Jesus, therefore you are reconciled and you can come to Him boldly, just like a Father and a son. Today, know that no matter where you are, God has blessed you. He has supplied, He has healed, He has given, He has blessed you with all that you need according to His richest in glory! All you need to do is to believe that instead of pleading and getting from God, you already have it in you! He has surrounded you with His favour, just like a shield. Which means that no matter where you are, to the front, to the back, to the left or to the right, you have no choice but being hit by the blessings of God! Favour means you get it in your most undeserving and unmerited state, therefore start your day right knowing that you are blessed and you have the favour of God surrounded you, therefore fear no more but move on!

Bouncing Back Higher

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Psalm 29:10 - The Lord sits enthroned over the flood, the Lord is enthroned as King forever.

Remember that when the storms are so great and the disciples were panicking in the boat, Jesus was there sleeping at the end of the boat. When the disciples calling out Jesus and asking him whether he did not care that they are drowning soon, Jesus woke up and rebuke the storms with one word. Likewise, you might be facing that great storms now, and your boat is wavering around and all you can think of is you are drowning very soon. But do not forget that you have Jesus with you in this boat, rest assured and know that Jesus is greater and enthroned over all storms and flood, and nothing can be greater than Him! Therefore, when He is with you, when He is in your boat, you know that you can never be drown! Trust in Him today, hold on to His Word, for one Word from Him can calm the great storm, one Word from Him can also calm your problems, your fear, your lack, your anxiety, your depression, your insecurity! As you rely on Him, instead of staying defeated, you will see yourself bounce back higher!

颂赞神

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

诗篇 63: 1 - 8
神啊,你是我的神!我要切切地寻求你;在干旱疲乏无水之地,我渴想你,我的心切慕你。
我在圣所中曾如此瞻仰你,为要见你的能力和你的荣耀。
因你的慈爱比生命更好,我的嘴唇要颂赞你。
我还活的时候要这样称颂你,我要奉你的名举手。
我在床上记念你,在夜更的时候思想你,我的心就像饱足了骨髓肥油。
我也要以欢乐的嘴唇赞美你。
因为你曾帮助我,我就在你翅膀的荫下欢呼。
我心紧紧地跟随你;你的右手扶持我。

是的,我们的心要常常思念神的恩典,要纪念神为我们所作的一切。不单我们的心思念,我们的口也要常赞美我们的神。人生难免有起有落,有悲有喜,但无论我们在什么情况下,都要选择来赞美称颂我们的神,因为唯有祂是全能者,是配得一切颂赞的神。不论这世上有多少烦恼忧愁,我们的心还是能赞美我们的神,敬拜我们的神,因为唯有当我们称颂祂,我们的生命才能得着饱足,才能得着真正的喜乐。我们日日夜夜都要赞美神,无论高山低谷,无论心情如何,无论身在何处,我们都要来赞美神。当我们这样行的时候,就必看见在我们生命中的一切锁链要断开,没有什么能辖制我们,没有什么能拦阻我们前进。

朋友们,当我们无时无刻的口唱心和的来赞美神,享受在神的同在里,就必看见我们的生命不再一样,是越来越好,是带着大能大力的。因此,我们就能把这一切的荣耀都归于父神,因祂在我们右边,我们便不致动摇,是能站立得稳,是居上不居下,作首不做尾的。阿门!

大能的勇士

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

士师记11:1-基列人耶夫他是个大能的勇士,是妓女的儿子。
士师记11:5-6亚扪人攻打以色列的时候,基列的长老到陀伯地去,要叫耶弗他回来。对耶弗他说,请你来作我们的元帅,我们好与亚扪人争战。

上帝用一个人,並不是看他的出身背景,耶弗他是妓女的兒子,且是被掃地出門的孩子,但上帝卻使用他,成為人民的救星,並且让他一雪前恥。士师记11:32于是耶弗他往亚扪人那里去,与他们争战。耶和华将他们交在他手中。
我們不要为自己的背景自卑,也不要因此被限制,上帝往往揀選了世上愚拙的,叫有智慧的羞愧;又拣选了世上軟弱的,叫那強壯的羞愧(哥林多前书 1:27)。只要敬畏神,謹守遵行祂的旨意,我們必定可以突破困境,破茧而出!因着我们的神是叫我们抬起头来的神(诗篇3:3),信靠祂的人必不至蒙羞(罗10:11)。如今我们都是大能的勇士,是耶稣基督的精兵。
朋友,你要领受耶稣的心意吗?那就坐下来大快朵頤吧!開始享受祂,领受祂的祝福,你再也不需要活在羞恥与定罪當中;再也不需要在忧虑與恐惧中活着,因為代价已付,我们都是耶稣重价赎回来的(林前6:20)。如今你已经不再负债,且得胜有余!阿门!
