0717 – Peace of God 神的平安

We have the peace of God that transcends all understanding when we cast our cares unto Him.Philippians 4:6-8 (NKJV) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus…..—meditate on these things.

It is very normal to be anxious when we are faced with an unseen enemy like the coronavirus, especially when we begin to read that it can be spread from human to human through the eyes, nose and it is in vapor form. It doesn’t help if we keep reading all the bad news from different parts of the world. Fear is meditating on the bad news and thinking of the unknown possibilities. However, we need to arrest this fear and anxiety that is brought about by all the bad reports and fake news!

The Bible teaches us to cast ALL our cares upon Him through prayer because He cares for us. We will experience perfect peace if we are to fix our eyes on the Lord and to meditate on His word.

We allow the peace that transcends all understanding to guard our heart and mind in Christ Jesus by meditating on what is true, noble and praiseworthy.

Example: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for solving and dealing with the sin issue that separated us from you through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. I am so thankful that I have peace with you now. I am a child of God. I am accepted in the beloved. I will learn to be still and know that you are God. You are the creator of heaven and earth. Nothing catches you by surprise because you are an omniscient God. Thank you that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I cast all my cares about this coronavirus outbreak into your hands and I refused to be fearful of it. I stand on Psalms 91. I take refuge in you and trust in your protection therefore no pestilence will come near my dwelling nor around me in my coming in and going out. Thank you that you have built a hedge of protection around me. Romans 8 says nothing shall separate me from your love neither pestilence, sickness, illness, danger, nakedness, nor things to come. I have a covenant with you through the blood of Jesus Christ. I am so thankful that protection is part of the covenant rights. Jeremiah 32 say that you are the God of all flesh and there is nothing too difficult for you. You are indeed the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God. You have placed the Holy Spirit in me therefore you are with me wherever I go.

We can keep the peace of God through meditating on the word of truth.

神的平安

当我们把我们的忧虑交给神的时候,我们就得到了神所赐的那出人意外的平安。

腓立比书4:6-8应当一无挂虑,只要凡事借着祷告,祈求,和感谢,将你们所要的告诉神。神所赐出人意外的平安,必在基督耶稣里,保守你们的心怀意念。弟兄们,我还有未尽的话。凡是真实的,可敬的,公义的,清洁的,可爱的,有美名的。若有什么德行,若有什么称赞,这些事你们都要思念。

当我们面对像新冠病毒这样看不见的敌人,焦虑是非常正常的,尤其是当我们通过阅读得知病毒可以通过眼睛,鼻子甚至是飞沫形式在人与人之间传播时。如果我们只是不停地阅读来自世界各地的坏消息,对我们没有一丝的帮助。陷入对坏消息和可能发生的未知事情的思考中会滋生恐惧。然而,我们必须制止所有负面报道和虚假新闻带来的恐惧和焦虑!

圣经教导我们要通过祷告将一切的忧虑卸给神,因为祂看顾我们。如果我们定睛在主的身上并默想主的话,我们将体验到完全的平安。

我们通过思念凡是真实的,可敬的和值得称赞的,就让神所赐出人意外的平安,在基督耶稣里,保守我们的心怀意念。

例子:亲爱的天父,感谢祢通过耶稣基督的救赎工作,解决和处理了使我们与祢分离的罪恶问题。我非常感激,我现在得着在祢里面的平安。我是神的孩子。我被神所接受。我要学会休息,要知道祢是神。祢是天地的创造者。没有什么让祢措手不及,因为祢是无所不知的神。谢谢祢,任何攻击我的武器都不能成功。我把所有关于这次新冠病毒爆发的担忧都交给了祢,我拒绝对此感到恐惧。我信靠诗篇91。祢是我的避难所,是我所依靠的,并相信祢的保护,毒害的瘟疫必不靠近我的居所,也必不在我出入的左右。 谢谢祢在我的四周安营扎寨保护我。罗马书8章说,没有什么能使我与你的爱隔绝,无论是瘟疫,不适,疾病,危险,赤身裸体,还是将来的事情。藉着耶稣基督的宝血,祢和我立下了盟约。我非常感谢因为保护是盟约权利的一部分。耶利米书32章说祢是万有之神,在祢没有难成的事。祢真的是那无所不能,无所不知和无所不在的神。祢已将圣灵放在我里面,因此无论我走到哪里,祢都与我同在。

我们可以通过默想真理的话语来保持神的平安。
