0620 – Faith in the Word of God 对神的话语有信心

Matthew 7:24-29 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall”.….for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.In this story both men heard the Word, both experienced the storm, but the results were different! Acting on the Word put a strong foundation under the wise man’s house that could not be moved and his house suffered no loss. The foolish man’s house might have been easier to build but it had no firm foundation to stand on. Why? Because meditation makes God’s word a reality to us, we must apply them to our circumstances and execute them. We will be the wise man that acts on the Word. Our “house” will stand strong because the foundation of doing God’s Word will make it withstand all adversities.

There will be “rain”, “floods”, “wind” and “storms” in life but if our faith is built on the right foundation then it is immovable.

Grace and peace will be seen in our lives when we know God and react to the situation by trusting Him through having faith in His Word and His character.
In order to hear God’s Word and act on it requires faith. Faith in His Word to us.

Romans 10.17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

When we hear the Word and begin to believe in the Word and verbalize what we believe, it will become a part of us and faith will begin to rise up within us.

As we read the word, we should speak it and confess it with our mouths. Faith will begin to rise up within us, in our hearts. God’s words are filled with faith..

Just reading the Bible without allowing it to enter into our heart will not do us any good. We must know the reality of the Word of God and live in God’s Word.

Knowing that milk and food gives nourishment to our bodies does not help us until we drink it or eat it, then it will become a part of us.

Understanding the Word is the beginning of building up our faith in God because His word and Himself are one.

When the Word is absent then faith is also absent. God’s word produces faith in our hearts. Faith grows in our hearts when we believe and say what the Word of God says.
This is the principle of believing in our hearts and confessing with our mouths.

Sermon Series: Prayer and Acting on the Word


对神的话语有信心

马太福音7:24-29「所以,凡听见我这话就去行的,好比一个聪明人,把房子盖在磐石上; 25雨淋,水冲,风吹,撞着那房子,房子总不倒塌,因为根基立在磐石上。 26凡听见我这话不去行的,好比一个无知的人,把房子盖在沙土上; 27雨淋,水冲,风吹,撞着那房子,房子就倒塌了,并且倒塌得很大。」。。。 29因为他教训他们,正像有权柄的人,不像他们的文士。

在这个故事里,两个人都听到神的话,两个人都经历风浪,但结果却截然不同!
听见神的话而去行就好比一个聪明人把房子建在磐石上,房子不会动摇也不会亏损。
无知的人建造房子的时候可能会比较容易,但缺乏了坚固的根基。为什么?因为默想让神的话语成为我们的实际经历,我们必须把神的话运用到环境里来执行。我们就成为聪明人,听见神的话就去行。我们的“房子”会坚固,因为以神的话语为根基,它就能够抵御一切逆境。

在生活中将有雨淋,水冲,风吹,风暴,但如果我们的信心建立在对的根基上,就不会动摇。

当我们认识神,并藉著信靠神的话和祂的品格对情况作出反应时,恩典和平安就会在我们的生命中显现。要听神的话并按照神的话行事,就需要信心。相信祂的话。

罗马书10:17 可见,信道是从听道来的,听道是从基督的话来的

当我们听到神的话,也开始相信神的话,并说出我们所信的神的话时,这就会变成我们的一部份,信心就开始在我们里面升起。

当我们读神的话,我们应该说出来,口里承认。信心就开始在我们心中升起。神的话语是充满信心的。

仅仅阅读圣经而没有让神的话进入我们的内心,对我们没有任何好处。我们必须知道神话语的真实,活在神的话语里。

知道牛奶和食物给我们的身体提供营养,并不能帮助我们,直到我们把它吃下或喝下了,才会变成我们的一部份。

明白神的道是建立我们对神信心的开始,因为神的道和祂自己是合一的。

当道不在的时候,信心也就不在了。神的话语在我们心里产生信心。当我们相信并说出神的话语时,信心就在我们心中增长。这就是口里承认心里相信的原则。
