~~God never sends you out alone主绝不会让你孤军作战~~

When I feel like giving up... when I feel like letting go... when I think I can't go on anymore... when I think I have nothing much to contribute... when I try to limit God with my own limitation...when I try to walk my path, my way and my life with my own strength... when my best simply not enough... when I am exhausted...the list can go on and on...

Those are just feel negative thoughts that surface so naturally when we lean so much on our feeling and thinking. Praise the Lord for His wise word: Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
这些消极的举例很容易就会浮现在脑海里如果我们凡事都单靠着我们的感受和想法。感谢主赐给我们聪明的话语:箴 言 3:5 - 6 你要专心仰赖耶和华,不可倚靠自己的聪明:在你一却所行的事上,都要认定他,他必指引你的路。

Isn't the core of the problem become crystal clear now? We are confused, distressed, discouraged because we lean too much on our own feeling which God don't intend to =)

Instead of viewing it as Satan's attack, such a doubtful situation can serve as a good measuring cylinder to help us take inventory on how much faith we have in the Lord and how firm do we stand on Him.
与其把这看作撒旦的袭击,倒不如借此机会在心灵上自我整顿,自我调整,来个心灵测试。 究竟我们对于神的信心有多么的大,究竟我们对神的信念有多么的巩固。

I have learned that whenever this kind of discouragement surfaces, the very first thing we should do is surrender it fully to the Lord. Only the Lord has the ability to reveal to us the different perspective and angle of the issue. More often than not, our thinkings are pretty much dictated by our self-centredness. No matter what happens, the first response is how about me? Have you considered how I feel? Have you put yourself in my shoes? Why done it another way round? Even our great Father did not come to be served, bu to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (c.f. Matthew 20:28). If anyone of us can have such a great love inflames in our hearts, all the conflicts can be prevented/solved easily, isn't?
随着面对的事多了,每当我处于人生低潮的时候,我学会了我的第一个反应应该是把所有的事都一一的事都交托给主。只有主有能力睁开我心灵的慧眼让我从而用不同的角度去看待身边发生的事。我们的想法往往都是一味的任由“自我”来操纵。所以不论发生任何事情,我们第一个反应就是对方是否有站在我的立场想过?对方是否有考虑过我的感受? 对方是否有为我着想过? 马太福音20:28 正如人子来,不是要受人的服事,乃是要服事人,并且要舍命,作多人的赎价. 如果大家都能够让如此的博爱在心中不停的燃烧,那么世上很多的纠纷不就可以迎刃而解了吗?

(Father, I pray that You continue grant me the ability to view things from Your lens and from Your window of Love. I thanked You oh Lord)

Have you ever think of the only WHEN that we need is WHEN we have GOD?

The question is have you looked closer enough for His blessings that spread all over the places? Do you firm enough in His walk to give thank in all circumstances?

God never sends you out alone. Are you on the eve of change? Do you find yourself looking into a new chapter? Is the foliage of your world showing signs of a new season? Heaven’s message for you is clear: when everything else changes, God presence never does. You journey in the company of the Holy Spirit, who “will teach you and will remind you of everything I have told you” (John 14:26 NLT).
神绝不会让你独自的去开拓神的园地的。你是否正处于蝉变的边沿?你是否即将踏入人生新的路程碑? 你正处于如同红叶般脱落的枯叶的意境是否象征着新季节的来临? 从天而降的讯息是如此的清晰:哪怕所有的事情都在改变,主一直都与你我同在。约翰福音 14:26 但保惠师,就是父因我的名所要差来的圣灵,他要将一切的事指教你们,并且要叫你们想起我对你们所说的一切话。
