We are attracted by Christ alone because of His death and resurrection, and we follow God, not because of our conditions or knowledge but because we are chosen by God.
This Sunday message was the last chapter of ‘Let Grace Abound’, as I listened, I keep hearing God saying to me, ‘Just follow me’ and ‘Follow with ease’. I was very touched by hearing this because all the while I was accused that I don’t love God, I don’t love His kingdom, I don’t love His people, I don’t love to pray. After I heard this, God is telling me that ‘I am belong to Him’, ‘I am in Him’ and ‘He is in me’. God wants me to have a closer relationship with Him, He wants to give me everything I need. My discontentment, my inferiority and all my sadness, He is now taking care. God also wants to put His concern in me so that I can enjoy His power to have the peace, the joy and to be able to shepherd His people that He will prepared for me. Although I may seems nothing, quietly doing my video, quietly doing everything, but God is starting to accumulate all the blessing for me. This is what God wants me to ‘Follow Him’, to be truly believe in what He has promised.
I also find myself feeling moping around, I thought maybe is because I’m having sleeping problem or because of my unsolved problems that making me distress. I’ve realized that this moping feeling does not comes from all these, but because I didn’t always get to hear the voice of God and I’m not truly accept the inheritance which God had given to me. Sometimes it’s really very hard for me to accept the things that I can’t imagine, but no matter how difficult I find it to be, God will always find ways by using His word and His ministry to make me understand, to make me accept and to make me believe. The inheritance in music ministry and the inheritance to bless the people who had encountered the same problem like me; God continue to make me see and believe.
And through prayer, I can hear the voice of God, even though I am weak and have no strength to pray, but God is telling me to always take the ‘first step’ of following God through prayer. I always hoped to pray like King David, no matter how the situation is, whether is good of bad, he will seek God first. Even though he had committed a great sin, he see himself is loved and blessed and keep having the close relationship with God. This is my prayer and I hope to be like David.
May we also can see ourselves as Christ disciple, willing to be train, to be heal and see our own life is a form of gospel, join together and win over travelmates in Christ. Let us continue to rely on the Holy Spirit and receive His power/authority to become the instrument of The Lord’s peace, to glorified God, to benefit people and to build His kingdom.
Here’s a song of ‘Instrument of Peace’ from Faith of Woman. This is a prayer from St. Francis, may this be our prayer, join together with Christ’s disciples and win over the travelmates in Christ. 这里有一首诗歌叫‘和平的工具’是从蒙恩使女。这是圣弗朗西斯的祷告文，愿这成为我们的祷告，与基督联络得合适，一起得着基督里的同路人吧。(这祷告文是我自己翻译成话语，若有不对请多包涵。）
‘LORD, MAKES US INSTRUMENTS OF YOUR PEACE’
[Chorus] Lord, make us instruments of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let your love increase
Lord, make us instruments of your peace;
Walls of pride and prejudices shall cease
When we are your instruments of peace
Where there is hatred, we will show His love
Where there is injury, we will never judge
Where there is striving, we will speak His peace
To the people crying for release
We will be His instruments of peace
Where there is blindness, we will pray for sight
Where there is darkness, we will shine His light
Where there is sadness, we will bear their grief
To the millions crying for release
We will be His instruments of peace
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.’
