开始确认事实,实际消除虚假 Start to Confirm the Truth, Practically Dispel the Unreal

Short clip from last Sunday Message.


Many believers unable to experience the real strength and power in our spirit is because we didn’t confirm the truth which we’ve heard of. Satan continues to give us a lot of negatives thoughts. I also was receiving a lot of unreal thoughts like accusation, guiltiness and inferiority but God has already given me all the answers to every problem from the bible. But here’s the question, how to confirm God’s word that is all answers to all problems? We all know the truth, I am God’s Child, I am Loved, I am blessed, God is with me, need to have life and living system, etc… But yet many times I still cannot get rid of all the unreal thoughts, then I realized that of all these truth, I didn’t confirm it ‘ALIVE’ in me.
The truth has to be ‘ALIVE’ in me, ‘ALIVE’ in all my problems, ‘ALIVE’ in all my conditions and ‘ALIVE’ in all situations.

I have been always envy those ancient of faith in the bible (Like; Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, David, Moses, Paul, Mary Magdalene…). To make the truth alive, I tried to relate them into myself.

JACOB-ANGEL Jacob, he has a lot fear and uncertainty in his life. He relied his own strength or tells lies to hold onto lots of thing but God has already inherit all His blessing/promises to Jacob, he does not need to search or need to struggle, in the end he has realized that God is always with Him and His blessing/promises is always with Him. Finally, he took off everything he hold onto and rely on God again. – I find my life is the same, sometime I just can’t let go some of my desires and continue to struggle but God is always with me, the idols in me cannot make me happy that’s why God is pushing me to take off everything so that I can be truly happy in Him.imagesDavid, he had committed the greatest sin; adultery and murderer. Such a great sinner yet God had forgiven Him. David’s weaknesses had driven him to prayer (psalm) and intercession with God and his weaknesses has become the source of blessing to His people. – From David’s life, I also see my life was such a sinner yet God has already forgiven me. God can use such a sinner like David, why can’t I? His prayer (psalm) that touches many poor in spirit, including myself. This had inspired me to become a Psalmist like him, able to have such a close relationship with God.

jesus-and-mary2 Mary Magdalene, she was once a sinful woman and was possessed by seven demons but after she met Jesus and was healed, she became Jesus’ companion and first to witness Christ resurrection. – I was very touched by her story and I cried. As I thought of how sinful person I am, possess by money, fame, desire etc… but God is loving and merciful, He did not rebuke me forever but continue to comfort me and give me the strength to slowly pull me away from all sins so that I can become His close companion and witnesses.

peter-walking_on_water Peter, he was non-educated, ordinary and maybe a slow learner. He also has a lot of weaknesses; maybe rash, hasty and easily got angry and even denied Jesus Christ 3 times. Such a person with so many weaknesses yet God raised him up to become a leader, able to preach boldly and healed many. – I may be uneducated, ordinary, inadequate in many ways and also have many weaknesses but because God loves me, He gives me the identity of Child of God and given me the ever-changing promises and inheritances.

There are many main characters in the bible we can relate to it. All the main characters in the bible have their own weaknesses, but because of their weaknesses, they see the love of God, they see the God of Immanuel, thus they are able to testify Christ through their weaknesses (and no more accusation, guiltiness nor inferiority) because God did not see their weaknesses/conditions but used them for God’s kingdom and His people.

hand_of_God This was where I’ve learned to confirm His truth this week, to relate myself through all these characters and become who I am ‘NOW’. I’m still learning to confirm it deeper and higher to make alive in my life but during the process of confirming the characters above, the feeling of accusation, guiltiness and inferiority is lesser because I know who I am through my weaknesses. Today our ssg leader shared about Moses that how God is with him and I start to ponder how ‘God is with me’ – This keeps ringing in my mind that how God is with me ‘NOW’. God is with me by telling me how important I am, how blessed I am and how I am loved by Him so I need to start intercede and confirm His truth (identity, promises, inheritance) in all occasions, even in my current poor circumstances so that I can meet God in all things and know His perfect will. (This is my prayer)

Let’s continue to confirm practically by confirming His truth ‘ALIVE’ in our lives and all our problems become no more.

A familiar song, ‘The Best Blessing in This Life’ is to know Jesus Christ and rely on Him as He is always with us and walk with us.

The LORD gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their forefathers. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the LORD handed all their enemies over to them. Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
<Joshua 21:44-45>

很多信徒没办法经理心灵里的真能力和权柄是因为我们没有确认我们所听到的事实。撒旦继续给我们很多错误的思想而我也常常收到很多虚假的思想,好像控告,内疚和自卑,不过从圣经里看到上帝已经给了我所有的答案在我每个问题里。但问题是,如何确认神的话是所有问题的答案呢?我们虽然知道很多事实,例如;我是神的儿女,我是蒙爱,我是蒙福,神与我同在,需要生命和生活体系,等等。。但还是很多时候没办法除掉那些虚假的思想,后来我发现在这些事实里,我没有确认‘活’在我里面。这事实要‘活’在里面,‘活’在我的问题里,‘活’在我的条件里和‘活’在我一切的情况里。

我一向来很羡慕那些圣经伟人(亚伯拉罕,雅各,约瑟,大卫,摩西,保罗,抹大拉的玛利亚…)。要活出事实,我设法把他们联系我自己。

JACOB-ANGEL雅各,他有很多惧怕和不确定性在他的生命里。他靠自己的能力和谎言抓住很多事,但上帝已经继承所有的祝福和应许给他了,他不需要搜寻或挣扎,到最后他发现上帝其实是一直与他同在,并且神的祝福与应许也是一直与他同在。后来,他脱掉一切他曾经所紧抓的而再倚靠上帝。- 我发现我的生命里也和雅各一样,有时我就是不能放掉我的私欲而继续争扎,不过上帝是一直与我同在,那些偶像不能叫我开心所以上帝才要一直推我把它脱掉,使我在祂里面才能拥有真真的喜乐。

images大卫,他曾经犯过最大的最;奸淫和杀人。这样如此的大罪人竟然蒙上帝的赦免。大卫的软弱即使他到进入祷告来与神交通,而他的软弱也成为万福之源。-从大卫的生命里,我也看到自己是这样的罪人但还是蒙神的赦免。上帝能使用大卫这样的罪人,难道我不能吗?大卫的祷告(诗篇)感化了很多心灵虚心的人,也包括我自己。这启发我想和他一样成为诗篇化的生命,能与上帝这样亲密的关系。

jesus-and-mary2抹大拉的玛利亚, 她是人称为有罪的妇女,她也曾被七个鬼附,但是当她遇见了耶稣而被医治后,她成为耶稣的同伴,也是第一个见证耶稣基督的复活。- 我个人对她的故事非常的受感动而使我流泪了。我一想到自己是个怎样的罪人,被金钱,名望,私欲所捆绑,但是上帝仍然爱我和怜恤我。祂并不长久责备反而还继续安慰我,赐我力量来慢慢拉我远离罪恶,好叫我能与祂成为最亲近的同伴和成为祂的见证。

peter-walking_on_water彼得,他是一个没有什么学历的人,一个普通又或许是个慢的学习者。他也有很多软弱;冲动,匆猝和容易生气,甚至否认耶稣3次。这样多软弱的人,上帝兴起培养了他成为一个领导这,能放胆地讲道并且医治了许多人。- 我虽然也不多学问,普通,许多无能的地方并且有也有许多的软弱,但是因上帝爱我,赐我儿女的身份,已给我不变的应许和基业。

有很多圣经里的伟人我们可以学习而联系。每个在圣经里的伟人都有他们自己的软弱,但是也因为他们的软弱,他们看到神的爱,看到以马内利的上帝,因此他们通过自己的软弱能够见证基督(不再有控告感,内疚感或自卑感)因为上帝不看他们的软弱或条件乃是使用他们来建立国度和子民。

这是我在这个礼拜所确认的地方,通过这些人物来联系我的个人生命而成为‘现在’的自己。我还在学习能确认的更深和更高,能够‘活’用在我的生命。在这确认的过程当中,那些控告感,内疚感和自卑感似乎减少了因为通过软弱我知道我是谁。今天我的小组组长分享到上帝怎样与摩西同在,我就回想上帝是怎样与我同在。这句话继续在我的脑子里转,叫我思想上帝是怎样‘现在’与我同在。上帝接着祂的同在告诉我是何等重要,何等蒙福,何等蒙爱,所以我需要开始交通与确认祂的事实(身份,应许,基业)在我每一个场合,甚至现在在我最糟糕的情况里,叫我能够在一切上遇见神和明白祂的美意。(这是我的祷告)

让我们继续实际的确认主的事实然后将事实‘活’在我们的生活里,而一切的问题就不再是个问题了。

耶和华照着向他们列祖起誓所应许的一切话,使他们四境平安;他们一切仇敌中,没有一人在他们面前站立得住。
耶和华把一切仇敌交在他们手中。耶和华应许赐福给以色列家的话一句也没有落空,都应验了。
《书21:44-45》

  1. It’s so cool, to see all my biblical “heroes” in such a perspective, so personal and real and humbling. It’s so easy to let God’s words fall into almost something “fiction” and unrelating to our own personal and daily lives. But God’s words aren’t called the Living Truth for nothing!

  2. Yes sis, your belief is very practical 🙂
    When God’s word comes alive in your life, it is no longer dry theory, but practical power, whenever & wherever we need it!
