Here is the short video clip for last Sunday Message.
No one in this world is always so strong nor has never made any mistake before. The only thing we are different from this world is we do not belong to the world but we belong to God and only in Christ, we can find absolute answer for all our problems. People in this world have never talked of 4 gospelization, they have never experience the Immanuel God nor can they boast their problems has become a blessing. Even if they have many solution and vision, as long it is not in Christ, they are only boasting to man but not God.
In the past, I do not really understand what it means of “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord”. This message has uncovered all the misunderstanding I have in the past. Boast in the Lord is easy to say but it never comes so easy to boast in the same 意念 with God because of the problems/weaknesses/situation we are facing everyday. I was quite a fragile person, easily influence by my own conditions and weaknesses. I may seem quiet but sometimes I also want to talk naturally and comfortably like what other did. I envy some people who can talk so freely and naturally but if it is what God had made me to be, no matter what people think of me, even if my language are limited, I prayed that my mouth only be used by God and speak when necessary. Although my knowledge and conditions are very simple and small, but I will try to learn as much as I can so that it can be use by God. I feel I am still far behind, but God has told me that even if my knowledge and condition is small, through the Christ’s gospel, the more He can manifest His knowledge and His whole being in me.
Today I will not write that much but I would like to share a few points which I have learned from the message.
1) To seek God = “To hear what God wants to tell me” and not to hear from my own.
2) God’s unconditional love is already in me and I have to see myself in this way.
3) Boast in the Lord only comes from the belief in my heart and mind. The belief is only comes from God’s truth and the truth has already “given me”, not from the praise of men nor Satan’s deception.
4) “Train” myself to seek God in everything and at all times (24hours)
Recently, there is something in my mind that trouble me so through this message, God has continued to remind me to really face God with an upright heart and seek His voice. From the points I have learned, all the troubles have bother me had made me to seek God first, not to judge myself or seek for my own good but to seek His good purpose in me. God’s ultimate voice was telling me not to doubt Him nor my identity, but to trust in Him “wholeheartedly”.
“You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.”
No matter what comes ahead, with the word of God, I must train myself to seek God and through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, not only I look correctly in my dignified identity, but also the people around me. I can boast in the Lord, not because I am weak but because I need God every hour and my heart is willing to seek Him and He will surely answer me.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek
and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
Song title: 认定袮
I will trust in You alone
Not in the things I think I know
In all my ways, I put my trust in You
I will follow after You
Not in the ways of the world
In all my ways, You’ll lead me through
Lord, let Your word be ever near me
Written on my heart
Jesus, I worship You, my King
You’re the Way, the Truth and You’re the life
I will follow You
Giving my all, Lord, I honor You
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
