显扬那因认识基督而有的香气 Spreads Everywhere the Fragrance of the Knowledge of Christ

This is the video short clip of the Sunday Message.


Every week I’m facing different kinds of struggles and keep repeating the same weaknesses but when I quiet myself and ponder about it, I see that every problems and struggling lies in my spirit and not because of the situation I am in now. Through the last Sunday Message, I have a better understanding of an ‘assured heart’ so this week was quite different compare to many…. weeks before. It is not that I don’t have any struggle or weaknesses but it is how my Abba Father is doing in my life.

You see, there are many fears, worries, frustration and accusation in everyday lives, it is so difficult to sustain the spirit filled in my heart but with an assured heart through believing the word of God, everything will change into joy, peace, hope, liberty, thanksgiving…etc. In the past, the assurance of God’s word was just an understanding and many times it does not go into my heart, thus I’m so easily got affected from all the fears and worries. The message impacts me the most is when I found myself a need to wrestle with God so as to win the faith of the word of God that is far more than just understanding of God’s words.

Let me shared about one small incident, I was quite fearful to lead ssg because of my inability areas that I need at least 3 days to prepare it. I was considering not going to my ssg and my art lesson because of my fear and worries but I feel God is telling me to go. I was quite uncertain of what God’s perfect will is so I keep on struggling on these small matters. It is so easily to make a decision, but when I don’t have an assured heart of God’s perfect will”, there’s two voices saying:

“Go lah, don’t worry, God will take care’ and the other voice saying: “‘Don’t go lah, wait you don’t have the time to prepare for my ssg”.

Both voices were so real and loud and I really don’t know what to do. Then I quiet down myself and seek for God’s confirmed voice (Holy Spirit). Ok, which voice has the fragrance of God’s word, God said ‘I shouldn’t be afraid and worry because He is in control and will take responsible of my time to prepare’ or ‘I know you don’t have time so it’s ok not to go’. Then I received the conviction of the Holy Spirit, Yes, the first voice is the correct voice I heard and once I assured it, I was filled with joy and liberty.

And this is what I am trying to mean about wrestle with God with His word from this small incident, Wrestling with God by using God’s word so as to get an assured heart of faith rather than just understand and believe it. This is the amazing part that God uses me to see and experience His word even though I am in the midst of my struggles and weaknesses, and so God’s love is manifest more in my life. Once again I was assured that every conditions and weaknesses I have is not the main issue, it is God’s perfect will to bless me and use me. He is ever control in our lives and our relationships therefore no more fear and worries.

Another song from Michael Card was dedicated to you. God voice is always close to us when we truly come in stillness and simplicity, you will hear the word of God.

In stillness and simplicity
In the silence of the heart I see
The mystery of eternity
Who lives in side of me
In stillness and simplicity
I hear the Spirit`s silent plea
That You, oh Lord, are close to me
In stillness and simplicity
You`re the Word
Who must be heard
By those who listen quietly
Is the reason we`re not still
To hear You speak because
We don`t believe You will
In stillness and simplicity
I lose myself in finding Thee
Oh Lord, You mean so much to me
In stillness and simplicity
So, seek the One who dwells in you
The kingdom that within is true
That innermost reality
In stillness and simplicity

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
