改变你的思维

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

我們常让負面思想、話語和其它可怕的細菌进入我們的思想,这不知不觉地改变我們的軟件,破坏我們的知识或价值观。我們是依照上帝的形像受造,甚 至在我們受造之前,祂就設定我們有個丰盛的生命,要喜乐、健康與完整地活着。祂来不是要定我们的罪,乃是藉着祂的独生爱子来救赎我们(约翰3:17-18)。
但因着我們的思想被世界的想法深刻的影响,很难顺服遵行上帝的話,我们的肉体常常与神的话敌对(加拉太书5:17)。當你意识到這些事情正在发生,你必須重新設定電腦;你必須改变你的思維模式。要了解,你不是瑕疵品,你是上帝精心所造,而且祂設定你得勝。但除非你依照創造者的使用手冊來运作,也就是上帝的話語,否則將永远無法充分發挥你的潛能。惟有那位造你的上帝最了解你,认识你。
所以,要将你的心志改换一新,穿上新人,就是你在基督里的新身份。当你坚心倚赖祂,祂必必保守你十分平安,纵然还是会有软弱犯错的时刻,在基督里,依然是义人。阿们!

Your Protection

Monday, August 4, 2014

The world might be bombarding you with news of new deadly viruses that has killed thousands, but do you know that you are under the wings of the God Almighty? Under His refuge, you can be sure that you are well taken care of.
Therefore, let's meditate the verses below, make it your daily meditation, and you shall find rest and confidence in the Word.

Psalm 91:1-16
Those who go to God Most High for safety will be protected by God All-Powerful.
I will say to the Lord "You are my place of safety and protection. You are my God, and I trust you."
God will save you from hidden traps and from deadly diseases.
He will protect you like a bird spreading its wing over its young. His truth will be like your armor and shield.
You will not fear any danger by night or an arrow during the day.
You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark or sickness that strikes at noon.
At your side 1,000 people may die, or even 10,000 right beside you. But you will not be hurt.
You will only watch what happens. You will see the wicked punished.
The Lord is your protection. You have made God Most High your place of safety.
Nothing bad will happen to you. No disaster will come to your home.
He has put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go.
They will catch you with their hands. And you will not hit your foot on a rock.
You will walk on lions and cobras. You will step on strong lions and snakes.
The Lord says "If someone loves me, I will save him. I will protect those who know me.
They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them.
I will give them a long, full life. They will see how I can save.

茁壮的成长

Monday, August 4, 2014

起初,神创造天地,又造了这世上的所有一切,包括了一切生物。而每个生物,无论是人类,是植物,或是任何的动物,都是有生命的,会成长的。而每个成长阶段,都会面对各样的问题。我们人类也一样,并且我们面对的会比其他的生物更多,因为我们是照着神的形象被造的,而且我们有神的气息。在这世上,我们会面对许许多多的问题,每天一睁开眼睛已经有很多的事情在等着我们,若是一个不留神,我们便会陷入那问题中,进而被影响了。

朋友们,我们要用对的态度来面对问题。若要有对的态度,就要有对的根基,对的相信。而这个对的根基就是耶稣基督,此外没有人可以立别的根基在我们的生命中。(林前 3:11)当基督成为我们的根基,我们的生命肯定不倒塌,因为祂是那稳固的磐石,并且祂胜过这是世界,所以在这世上没有什么能胜过耶稣基督。我们若要在世上过着得胜的生活,我们的生命就肯定要连接于耶稣基督,因为离了祂我们不能做什么。(约 15:5)同样的,若要看到我们的生命在这世上是茁壮成长,得胜有余的话,那么神的话不可离开我们的眼目,总要刻在心版上,昼夜思想。当我们这样行的时候,我们就能过着作首不做尾,居上但不居下的生命。

神的话就像我们生命的养分,当我们一直不停地吸取那养分,我们的生命就能一直不停地往前走,往上攀。如同一颗树,用了足够的养分,它就能一直的往上伸延,长成坚固茁壮的大树。我们的生命也如此,当我们的眼目不离开神的话,单单定睛在基督的身上,谨守遵行祂所说的一切话,我们肯定也必在这世上是坚固,不容易倒塌的。阿门!

信而见

Monday, August 4, 2014

希伯来书11:27-「他恆心忍耐,如同看見那不能看見的主。」

在我们的生活当中,我们时常一時冷,一時热;一時高,一時低;這是什么原因呢?原因就是我们时常被眼见的迷惑了,我们本該以上帝為中心的,卻去以環境为中心了。但上帝要我們在每一件事物上都看見祂,时刻仰望祂,称颂高举祂的名。

我們一直過着一上一下的生活,这是一种倚靠環境的信心,但上帝不要我们这样,圣经说我们行事为人要凭着信心,不要凭着眼见(哥林多后书5:7)。世界告訴我們【见而信】,但是上帝要我們【信而見】。耶稣是昨日、今日、一直到永远都是一样都的(希伯来书13:8)。祂看见我们的未来,祂是时间以外的神,当祂告诉我们不要挂心忧虑时,我们是可以相信祂的,唯有祂是我们最坚固的磐石。

所以保罗说“应当一无挂虑,只要凡事藉着祷告、祈求和感谢,将你们所要的告诉神。神所赐出人意外的平安,必在基督耶稣里,保守你们的心怀意念”(腓立比书4:6-7)。亲爱的朋友,不要让環境来决定你生命的走向,却要让上帝的真理彰显在生命中。信心是相信我們所不見的,信心的酬報就是得着我們所相信的。啊们!

Your Care Taker

Monday, August 4, 2014

Psalm 16:5- No, the Lord is all I need. He takes care of me.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but do know that the Word of God shall never pass away. He has promised to love you with an everlasting love, not only that He has blessed you with all that you need throughout your journey with Him. Therefore, as men are seeking all sorts of ways to help themselves, do be reminded that you have the Lord! When you have Jesus, you have all! He is your all in all! Furthermore, He longs to fill you with all that He has done, and crown you with His glory!

Therefore, all that you need today is Jesus. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all that you need shall be added! Desire Him along the day, meditate on His love every moment, seek His Word from time to time, and you shall see yourself soak in His love! Most importantly, when no one takes care of you, He takes care of you! How great! Be sure that He is a good care taker, He will make sure all things are well in your life, never be troubled again about your future for He is taking care! Tell yourself today "The Lord takes care of me, He is all that I need!"

You Are Loved

Saturday, August 2, 2014

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

Do you know that it is such a comfort and assurance to know that the one and only God who created the heaven and earth is now loving you? The love in this world may be temporal, but His love is from everlasting to everlasting. Regardless what are the hurts that you have gone through, regardless how many promises that people has broken, today just bear in mind that Jesus loves you! Long before you know Him, long before you can do any good to deserve this love, He already loves you! His love is unconditional, it is sacrificial, and ultimately this love can empower you to change!

If you are tired of the journey of your life today, sit down and meditate on His love. He longs to draw you with His unfailing kindness and His everlasting love. All you need to do is to come to your senses and know that you are being deeply loved! The moment when you grasp this truth, it shall set you free from all bondages, fear, insecurity and all! Jesus loves you, do you know that? Let Him embrace you today!

问题不大,耶稣最大

Saturday, August 2, 2014

约一4:4 小子们哪,你们是属神的,并且胜了他们,因为那在你们里面的,比那在世界上的更大。
约16:33 我将这些事告诉你们,是要叫你们在我里面有平安。在世上你们有苦难,但你们可以放心,我已经胜了世界。

亲爱的朋友,在前一刻你经历了什么事情呢?是否有很多问题围绕着你?是否有很多无形的压力把你压倒?也许你刚拿到让你担心的医药报告,或者你刚出席升值的面试让你放不下心,又或许你正在经历有好多人所不能够明白的问题...现在,这里就是让你得释放的地方。这一刻就是你在所有问题中画上句点的时候,并且转向耶稣。
在忧虑的时候,当知道耶稣他最大,他是帮助你战胜忧虑的平安;
在不肯定的当儿,耶稣最大,他是让你战胜不肯定的肯定;
在缺乏的时候,耶稣最大,他的供应永不断缺;
当你生病的时候,耶稣最大,他是使你战胜病痛的医治;
当你软弱的时候,耶稣最大,他的恩典帮助你战胜你一切的软弱;
当你害怕的时候,耶稣最大,当他与你同在,没有什么能够阻挡你。

记得,无论什么,问题,烦恼,挑战,只要你能够命名出来的都不大,因为耶稣才是那最大的!在他里面,你必不惧怕;在他里面,你是得胜有余的!
所以,定睛与他且满心的相信他,因为他就是你的全部!

The Problem Is Not Big, The Biggest Is Jesus

Friday, August 1, 2014

1John4:4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
John16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Dear friend, what have you encountered a moment ago? Is there a lot of troubles surrounding you? Is there tonnes of pressure that press you down? Perhaps you just got your medical report that makes you worry, maybe you have just attended an interview for promotion that brings you uncertainty, or there can be even a lot of problems that others might not understand yet you are going through... Right now, here is the place for you to get released. Now is the time for you to put an end on all these problems and turn your focus to Jesus.
In times of worry, know that Jesus is the biggest, He is your peace that helps you to overcome worries;
In times of uncertain, Jesus is the biggest, He is your assurance that helps you to overcome uncertainties;
In times of lacking, Jesus is the biggest, He is your provision that will never end;
When you are sick, Jesus is the biggest, He is your healing that helps you to overcome diseases;
When you are weak, Jesus is the biggest, His grace helps you to overcome all your weaknesses;
When you are afraid, Jesus is the biggest, when He is with you, nothing can be against you.

Remember, no matter what, problems, troubles, challenges, all that you can named out is not big, JESUS is the biggest among all. In Him, you shall not be afraid; In Him, you are more than conquerors!
So, eyes on Him and put your full trust in Him, He is our all in all!

福音的大能

Friday, August 1, 2014

罗 1:16 - 我不以福音为耻;这福音本是神的大能,要救一切相信的,先是犹太人,后是希利尼人。

福音,既是好消息,是让我们生命得着改变的好消息。消息,意思就是已经发生的事情,而福音这好消息是从神而来的,是耶稣基督已经作成的,而不是人为的。福音是神的大能,相信的人凡事都能做。在两千多年前,耶稣基督已作成了一切,祂也知道我们今天一切所需要的,无论是在我们的家庭、事业、健康、经济、关系、学业等等,祂都知道,并且都预备好给我们了,只要我们相信,这一切丰盛都属于我们的。

朋友们,神的儿子耶稣基督就是福音的起头,(可 1:1)一切的好消息都是从祂而来。在耶稣基督为我们走上十字架的时候,一切我们所需要的祂都为我们做成了,但是,为什么人很多时候还是得不着呢?人们总觉得是神的时间,是神的问题,但是其实这所有的耶稣基督都已经做成了,问题并不出于在神身上,而是我们,我们的信心让我们得着。今天,当我们相信的时候,病痛已经被医治;缺乏已经成为富足;软弱已成为刚强;失败已转为成功;凡我们生命中不好的都要变成好。而这一切的转变,不是因为我们的行为,而是神的作为。我们信的有多快,就多快得着!

所以,让福音这好消息能藉着我们得以广传,把我们自己成为神福音的见证,神的广告,让人看见我们是分别为圣的,知道我们是属基督的门徒,好让这好消息能临到每一个人的生命中。因为我们的神是有恩惠,有怜悯的神,祂不愿看见一人沉沦,乃要人人得救。阿门!

You Are In His House

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Ephesians 2:19 - Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household.

Do you know that Jesus has broken the barrier between you and the Father by His body? We were brought near to God never by our own efforts or good behavior, but solely by the blood of Jesus Christ. Because of His one sacrifice, we are perfected forever! Therefore, when there is no longer a barrier between you and the Father, when we are already brought near to God, your identity has changed! We used to be foreigners and aliens, being foreigner and alien means being separated, has no part with the things of God, and without power!

However, the moment when you accepted Jesus, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, you are His fellow citizens, you are His people and ultimately, you are in the household of God! Being a member of His household simply means you have shares in the things of God, you are reconciled, you are now equipped with power! Just like when you are in the household of your own father on earth, you simply enjoy everything in that house! You will not need to plead your mum for food, or kneeling down to your dad in order to get him to send you to school! You can freely enjoy whatever there is in the fridge without paying, and surely your parents will not get you to pay. That is what happen in your normal household, what's more in the household of God! In the household of God, you are His child, you can enjoy whatever it is that Jesus has purchased for you! He has purchased you freedom, love, joy, peace, blessings,and all that you need! He has stored them within you, and all you need to do is to open the fridge and just get whatever you want! God the Father will never ask you to pay, because the payment is Jesus, the Lamb of God! How wonderful!

Therefore, the moment when you know how much that He loves you, you will be more assured of your identity in Christ, you are in His house, hence, you will live life, you will talk, you will react like His child! It's never by force or effort, you can live it out supernaturally natural just because you are already His child, you are already in His household, you are already righteous, you are already being loved, therefore you can!

上帝的恩宠

Thursday, July 31, 2014

约伯记36:16 - 神也必引你出离患难,进入宽阔不狭窄之地;摆在你席上的满有肥甘。
诗篇37:19 - 他们在急难的时候,不至羞愧,在饥荒的日子,必得饱足 。
彼得后书1:2 - 愿恩惠、平安,因你们认识神和我们主耶稣,多多地加给你们。

約瑟的故事是一个蒙上帝恩惠的例子。他被賣到埃及為奴,被利用且受尽凌虐。然而圣经說:「但耶和华与約瑟同在,向他施恩(创世记39:21)。无论他人如何惡待約 瑟,無論他被帶到什么地方,他所做的尽都順利。即使波提乏的妻子污陷他非礼,使他成為階下囚,他还是在司獄長面前蒙恩。上帝继续賜恩給約瑟,到了最後,他 甚至掌管埃及全地。

在当你敬畏耶和华,上帝的恩惠在必然在每一次的试炼中临到:在飢荒中臨到、在被人惡待時临到。當你正遭遇痛苦,如同約瑟,被人陷於不義,上帝提升他成为埃及的宰相;如同路得,有財務上的 困难,上帝让她遇见了波啊斯;或是如大卫,他也不完美,行了上帝眼中看为恶的事,但当他懂得回转,知道上帝的心意,所以他被称为合神心意的人(撒母耳记上13:14)。
当这世界的局势越来越紊乱,经济越来越萧条,天灾人祸不断,我们这般圣徒啊,更是要站稳脚步,不要害怕丧胆,或是生出苦毒。这个時候,更要心存感恩,积极宣告上帝的恩惠,期待上帝的賜福,我们虽然活在这世界,却不属这世界,我们是天国的子民。阿们!

Biblical Prosperity

Thursday, July 31, 2014

2 Corinthians 8:9 - For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might became rich.

The world has been teaching and influencing people that we are living in a time of lack, therefore as we yield to the saying of the world, we will tend to think like a poor man. Poverty mindset is not of God, because God never has a poverty mindset. That's why in Romans 8:6 says as you set your mind on flesh, it is death; but as you set your mind on the Spirit it is life and peace. Of course, a carnal mind will think what is not of God, and poverty is mindset is definitely not of God. But the moment when we accept Christ, our spirit man has the same nature as God, it is a new created spirit man. Whatever that Christ has done, it is done and you have it in your spirit man.

Therefore, we need to start to see what Jesus has done and acknowledge Him for what He did. This helps us to grow in our spirit. The verse says that He was rich, yes in fact He is! He owns thousands of cattle and hills, all that is in the universe, the heaven and earth are all belong to Him. He has all things, and all things are created for Him! But because of all of us, because of loving us, He became poor. He let go all that He has, being naked and put to shame at the cross, even His last robe was snatched by the Romans soldier, He was left without anything at the cross; why? so that you through His poverty might become rich!

If you are to live a life of abundance and prosperity, you can't do it your own way. Though it might work, but the blessings of the Lord adds no sorrow to it! You need to "through" Jesus Christ, you need to go through Him, let Him be the bridge and connection, through His poverty, through what He has done for all of us at the cross, you are already rich. The divine exchange has done, the Work of Jesus has completed, today, your new created inner man is just as rich as Jesus is!

Hence, keep in step with the Word of God and develop your spirit man from now on. As you grow in your spirit, then you are able to operate in whatever that He has entrusted you! Therefore, it's time to be a son, and not an infant.

He Serves

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Matthew 20:28 - Just as the Son of man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Today, know that whatever it is, the heart of the Father in heaven is always on you. His eyes and protection is always set on you, giving you his fullest attention in order to meet all your every needs no matter where you are. Be assured that His heart is to see you great, not being the least but becoming the greatest nation wherever you set your foot on.

Many times we thought that we need to serve Jesus in order to please him, and He will bless us from there. However, do you know that he come not to be served but to serve? And you are exactly the target that He wants to serve! He wants to serve you with prosperity, health, goodness, favor, success, honor, restoration! He wants to serve you when you are at work, dealing in the marketplace, studying in school, or doing house chores at home; so that wherever you are, you can't help but prosper! You can't help but find favor!

Not only that, He came to give His life as a ransom for many. Of course, you are the one that He died for. That's why you have to understand how much you are being loved and embrace! He loves you until the full extent, and that is the very reason He walked to the cross and crucified! So that today, you are totally blessed and loved in all aspects! He has died for you, the finished work is done; what are you trying to do again? Simply nothing but solely believe, receive, and enjoy Him!

胜利的欢呼

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

从前,当约书亚要攻打耶利哥城的时候,他们连续带着神的约柜围绕那城七日。到了第七日,他们同样的围绕着耶利哥城七次,然后约书亚对百姓说:“呼喊吧,因为耶和华已经把城交给你们了!” 当百姓们一同呼喊的时候,城墙就塌陷,百姓便上去进城,各人往前直上,将城夺取。(参阅 约书亚记第六章)但他们呼喊的时候,是带着胜利的呼喊,是充满活力的,是知道他们必打胜仗,因为有神与他们同在,他们就必凡事亨通。
同样的今天,在我们的生命中要时常连接与耶稣。当我们把耶稣放在我们生命的前头,就好比当时约书亚的士兵们把神的约柜放在前头行一样,让祂来引领我们的道路,那么我们所作的必凡事亨通,是必定得胜的。当我们的生命是颂赞神,带着胜利的欢呼,便能使我们生命里拦阻我们前进的城墙倒塌。朋友们,正所谓马是为打仗之日预备的,得胜乃在乎耶和华。(箴 21:31)我们策划,我们行,但成事的乃是神。当我们把所作的交托耶和华,我们所谋的就必成立。(箴 16:3)我们可以有很好的计划,可以有很多的见解,可以有很多得准备,但更不可少的就是那使我们亨通的神。要知道,我们今天之所以能战胜的能力,是因为我们有一位得胜的神。
朋友们,今天这胜利已经属于我们。我们是能战胜黑暗的权势,我们的生命是在问题之上的,因着那爱我们的主,在这一切的事上我们是得胜有余的。(罗 8:37)所以,让我们因着我们有个复活且得胜的生命来欢呼,来向神献上满心的感恩。阿门!

放手

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

诗篇55:22 - 你要把你的重担卸给耶和华,祂必抚养你;祂永不叫义人动摇。

要学会完全放手,不靠自己的能力,似乎不太容易,人性的本能都是属血气,靠血气行事的,这是我们自小就被教导的。毕竟这世界教导我们要出人头地,就得自食其力,而这样的观念已经根深蒂固在我们生命里头。我们太习惯靠自己,习惯了把一堆【未雨绸缪】放在心中,让自己落入一个紧张兮兮,穷担心的状态,结果就是,我们永远无法活在当下,对未来也不抱着美好的期盼。

现在,统管万有的耶和华对你说:你求我,我就将列国赐你为基业,将地极赐你为田产(诗篇2:8)。我在这里,凡劳苦担重担的都可以到我这里来,我就使你得安息;你的我的责任,你终身的事都在我手中(诗篇31:15)。这不需要你交换什么,也不会让你有任何损失。何不给自己一个卸下重担的机会,放手试试看?

Your Loving Kindness

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I look at my palm and see,
who am I without thee;
and yet you've chosen the weak,
to make me arise and shine..

Your love touched my heart always,
Abba Abba I call your name,
Extending your mighty arms,
to sustain me whenever I fall..

Your favor is surrounding me,
Your grace abounding on me,
all because of the One who came,
and bear my sins and shames.

Darkness has to flee,
Sickness has to flee,
Bondage are set free,
and the blind can see..
The cross is the prove from thee,
your loving-kindness is what I see.

独一无二的你

Monday, July 28, 2014

耶 1:5 - “我未将你造在腹中,我已晓得你;你未出母胎,我已分别你为圣;我已派你作列国的先知。”

我们每一个人,都是特别的,是不一样的。在我们还未被造前,神就已知道我们了,在我们还没出世前,祂已分别我们为圣。意思就是,神早就已经拣选了我们,而不是我们拣选了祂。很多时候,我们人很喜欢去模仿别人,看到这个人好就想要模仿;或是看到那个人的造型很酷就想要变成那样。其实,神造我们每一个人都有自己的特色,都有自己吸引人的地方。在这个世界上,没有一个人是和自己一模一样的,就算是双胞胎也有不一样的地方。比如我们的指纹,在这世上是没有人会有同样的指纹的。如同今天,神造我们是独特的,没有人可以代替你,也没有人能变成你。
很多时候,人会觉得自己总比不上人而觉得自卑,觉得自己是不起眼的。他们总觉得像他们这样的人是没有人会注意,没有人会爱他们的。但是,我们的神却是爱我们到底的神,是无论如何都不会把我们舍下的。就算今天的你再怎么默默无闻,就算今天的你有多么的狼狈,但是我们的神依然把你看为至宝,把你当成祂眼里的瞳人,只因为祂是造你的父。神已把我们分别为圣,我们就算活在这世上,也与世人不同,因为那住在我们里面的是比这世上的更大。如今,祂如何,我们在这世上也如何,在我们里面是有那浩大的能力。所以朋友们,不要看轻自己了,不要觉得自己什么都不如人,因为我们是上帝的宝贝,是带着神的恩膏,是被圣灵所充满的。因此,只管勇敢的向前,为要得着那从上头而来的赏赐。阿门!

You Are Not Alone

Monday, July 28, 2014

Psalm 139:9-10 - If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea. Even there your hand will guide me; your right hand will hold me fast.

Do you ever feel that sometimes you are left all alone in circumstances? You might feel being outcast and there is no one by your side that can fully understand all your needs. Are there problems and circumstances looming, which makes you feel so insecure and nowhere out? Today, keep your heart secure and know that your Father in Heaven loves you eternally.

Always remember that you are never alone. Even though the waves and the storms might seem to be gigantic, but you have a support that is unshakable. That man is Jesus Christ. Just like what Psalm says if I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, and your right hand will hold me fast. How loving! It means that even though you are at the far side, His hands will always be there to guide and protect. Today, no matter where you are, even though you are rise and above, He is still there guiding you; even though you are far away, He is still holding you.

You might be far away, but when Jesus holds you with His right hand, He is bringing you back into His embrace! It means that when He is with you, He will bring you back to the land of joy! Right in the pit of your life, He is there. So, whom shall you fear?

Today, when the hands that created heaven and earth is with you, when the nail pierced hands are guiding you; you will see that nothing can hold against you when you are in the embrace of God! Jesus' finished work is there leading you into a better place and a better hope! Therefore, look upon Him and see that His right hand is there holding you fast, so you are not alone!

在主里面

Sunday, July 27, 2014

诗篇91:7 - 虽有千人仆倒在你旁边,万人仆倒在你右边,这灾却不得临近你。
诗篇91:10 - 祸患必不临近你,灾害也不挨近你的帐棚。

如果你是在主裡面的,就是被主包圍着,如同被空氣包圍着一般,不论什么災禍,都不能临到你;你是被守护的,祂是你的避难所,是你的高台,是你随时的帮助。罗马书8:28说上帝叫万事都互相效力,叫爱神的人得益处。所以每一件临到你身上的事情,也许眼见是不好的,但上帝要把祂变成好(创世记50:20)。

一个信靠神的人,是在生活的每件事上都完全倚靠祂,不受恐惧轄制,因为当你恐惧,你的力量就微小(箴言24:10)。尽管眼前的情況相當混乱,但你的心却不可慌乱,相信上帝依旧掌权。不论自己的感受如何,我们依然在上帝的怀抱里。

約翰一书4:4说“那在你們裡面的,比那在世界上的更大”,倘若基督徒确实相信(心里相信)並实踏(外在行为的回应)这个真理,那將会怎么样呢?就会如同约翰一书4:17所说的:“耶稣如何,我们在这世上也必如何”。阿们!

Inaccessible Place

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Psalm 9:9 - The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

Where are you going to look for refuge in times of troubles or lacking? Many of us tend to run away from God and turn to the problems instead. Today, you are to know that when problems come, when poverty drops by, you are to run to your Father in Heaven directly!

He is refuge for the oppressed. In the original meaning, refuge here means an inaccessible place. It means Jesus is an inaccessible place for all your problems! Then, you are to be assured that poverty has no access to Jesus, sicknesses have no access to Jesus, broken relationship has no access to Jesus, and even condemnation has no access to Jesus! Therefore, they have no access to you too! Probably you had been crushed by all the oppositions, financial problems, guilt; however, this is a day that you can run to Jesus. You don't have to wait until you settle everything by your own or when you are whole, you can run to Him anytime! In Him, everything that is bad is all inaccessible, you are well protected in His embrace!

In times of trouble, He is your stronghold! It means that He is forever in front of you to shield you! When condemnation comes, Jesus has it first! When accusation comes, Jesus has it for you! When curses come, they hit Jesus first! This is what He has done for you on the cross! A stronghold that you can always rely on! So run to Him today!
