享受奉神旨意而行的蒙福生活 Enjoy Blessed Living by the Will of God

Short clip for last Sunday Service.

brand new day

Everyday supposed to be a brand new day that God has prepared a wonderful and meaningful day for me but many times I never think in this way. My eyes are blinded by non ideal situation thus was shifted my mind away from God’s promises. Sometime I also asked myself, do I love God? Do I love myself? Why am I comparing with people and ended concluding myself the worse?

Actually, it is all because I didn’t live accordingly in His will. The problems lies in my eyes, I cannot see God is always with me and also didn’t hear His gentle voice that has His most perfect will in every problems and situations. To live according in His will by confirming and assured that my identity was ‘chosen’ to be blessed and promised in Christ.

In my role as SIC, sometimes I do not know whether I can do well or not. I have a lot of doubts that I am not capable and when I look at myself on how weak I am, can I really do God’s ‘sacred’ work? Then I realized it is not when I am sanctify, I can do His ‘sacred’ work. It is only when I do God’s work, I can become more sanctified. When I know that God wants me to do His work, I try continue to do according in His will with my current weakness and conditions. Even I’ve made many mistakes; God did not blame me for that, and yet still continue to use me. When I continue to live in God’s will, the Holy Spirit keeps giving me convictions that I am more and more important in my role. Until to this day, God was still in control and I can see how God has blesses me through the ministry. Although a year of many struggling, if I act according to His will, I don’t have to be afraid or worry about the outcome now because no matter what’s the outcome, God is with me and His promises will not change and surely be fulfilled.

God's willTherefore in His will, every relationship, every role and conditions have His love, help, blessing and provides. When I am assured of all these, I won’t feel myself is the worse but the best, best in my current situation, conditions and every role I’m in because everything in it has His promises. So to live according in His will is when I have the assurance of already ‘Chosen’, and then I will see God loves me and is with me right now, thus I can truly love myself, love God, love people and continue to follow God.

A song from Stream of Praise named ’沙漠的赞美‘ (Desert of Praise).
It was taken from Isaiah 43:19,
‘See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.’
Even when there’s seem no way out, God will make a new way and His will can never stop. Even our enemy come, we will not be surround, because God is ever in ‘CONTROL’.
Let’s praise and give thanks with our heart to our Ever Living and Immanuel God!

神开起一扇门,祂必开一条新路;
不疑惑,不软弱,我心仍要赞美。
赏赐的在於袮,收取的袮必代替;
神旨意,不能拦住,我心仍要赞美。
凡事信靠主,不失去盼望;
因為我的主仍然在掌权。
衪必在沙漠开江河,在旷野开道路,
虽四面受敌卻不被困住,
我要在沙漠中赞美, 在旷野中宣告:
我的主永远掌权。

This is what the LORD says— the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel— to him who was despised and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of rulers: “Kings will see you and rise up, princes will see and bow down, because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel,
who has chosen you.”

New day 每一天应该是全新的一天因为上帝所为我预备是最美好又有意义的一天,不过很多时候不是这样想。我的眼光因被自己的软弱和不理想的情况而蒙蔽,夺走走我该思想的神的应许。

其实,都是因为我没有奉神旨意而活。问题在我的眼光里没有看到神的同在和没有听见祂最温柔的声音在我的每个问题或情况里。要奉神旨意而活是通过确认自己的身份而得着我是蒙神‘拣选’的确据,拣选了我是为了要得蒙祝福和蒙神的约。

在成为干事的角色里,有时我不知道我是不是能做的好。我有很多怀疑是否自己能不能胜任。当我看自己是多么的软弱,我开始问我自己是不是真的能做这‘圣’工吗?但是当我发现不是自己成圣后才能做这圣工,乃是我只能做神的‘圣’工我才能更‘成圣’。当我知道是上帝要我做时,就算自己的问题和情况没变,我继续按神的旨意而行。就算我有时会犯错;上帝并没有怪我还继续使用我。但我继续按神的旨意而活时,圣灵就继续给我感动在我的角色里看到自己是越来越重要了。直到今天,上帝仍然在掌管而我也更看到神在每个事工里和生命里继续祝福我。虽然这一年里我争扎了很多,只要我按神的旨意活的话,我不再害怕或担心会是什么结果,无论结果是如何,上帝的同在和应许是不会变的而最终会成就。

Bible

因此在神的旨意里,每一个关系,每一个角色和条件里都有神的爱,帮助,祝福和供应。当我确认这些时,我不在感觉自己是最糟糕的,乃是最好的,最好的情况,最好的条件和最好的角色了,因为在这一切里面都有神的应许。所以叫我能奉神的旨意而活是接着得蒙‘拣选’的确据,看现在神是爱我,是与我同在时,我才能够爱自己,爱神,爱人, 和能够继续顺从主。

救赎主 ─ 以色列的圣者耶和华对那被人所藐视、本国所憎恶、
官长所虐待的如此说:君王要看见就站起,首领也要下拜;
都因信实的耶和华,就是拣选你 ─以色列的圣者。

  1. Ah, you’re definitely CAPABLE, dear Liwen! Otherwise God would not have chosen you…and also, nobody is able to do everything perfectly at first…it’s all a process and progress! 🙂

    But I definitely doubt myself frequently, too. It’s so easy to lose focus and forget who I really am!
