  • *In the presence of the Father*

    Exodus 33:14 NIV
    [14] The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
    ‭‭出埃及記‬ ‭33:14‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
    [14] 耶和華說:「我必親自去,讓你安心。」

    1 - There is rest and joy in His presence
    1 - 祂的同在裏有安息和喜樂

    Psalm 16:11 NIV
    [11] You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
    ‭‭‭‭詩篇‬ ‭16:11‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
    [11] 你必將生命的道路指示我。在你面前有滿足的喜樂,在你右手中有永遠的福樂。

    2 - He has your best interests at heart
    (He's on your side!)
    2 - 祂心中想著你的最大利益

    Hebrews 12:5-6,12-13 Voice
    [5] Indeed, you seem to have forgotten the proverb directed to you as children: My child, do not ignore the instruction that comes from the Lord, or lose heart when He steps in to correct you; [6] For the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He corrects each one He takes as His own. [12] So lift up your hands that are dangling and brace your weakened knees. [13] Make straight paths for your feet so that what is lame in you won't be put out of joint, but will heal.
    希伯來書‬ ‭12:5-6, 12-13‬ ‭RCUV
    [5] 你們又忘了上帝勸你們如同勸兒女的那些話,說:「我兒啊,不可輕看主的管教, 被他責備的時候不可灰心; [6] 因為主所愛的,他必管教, 又鞭打他所接納的每一個孩子。」[12] 所以,你們要把下垂的手舉起來,發酸的腿挺直; [13] 要為自己的腳把道路修直了,使瘸了的腿不再脫臼,反而得到痊癒。‬‬

    3 - Come into His presence quickly, thanks to Jesus
    3 - 快進去祂的同在,感謝耶穌

    Psalm 118:19-20 NLT
    [19] Open for me the gates where the righteous enter, and I will go in and thank the LORD. [20] These gates lead to the presence of the LORD, and the godly enter there.
    詩篇‬ ‭118:19-20‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
    [19] 給我敞開義門, 我要進去稱謝耶和華! 這是耶和華的門, 義人要進去!
  • Moving forward with Jesus

    1 - Jesus is calling us onwards and upwards

    Philippians 3:12-14 NLT
    [12] I don't mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. [13] No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, [14] I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

    腓立比書‬ ‭3:12-14‬ ‭CNV‬‬
    [12] 這並不是說我已經得著了,已經完全了,而是竭力追求,好使我可以得著基督耶穌所以得著我的 。 [13] 弟兄們,我不以為自己已經得著了,我只有一件事,就是忘記背後,努力前面的事,[14] 向著目標竭力追求,為要得著 神在基督耶穌裡召我往上去得的獎賞。

    2 - Stay encouraged on the journey

    Psalm 119:7-8 NLT
    [7] As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should! [8] I will obey your decrees. Please don't give up on me!

    詩篇‬ ‭119:7-8‬ ‭CNV‬‬
    [7] 我學會了你公義的法則, 就以正直的心稱謝你。 [8] 我必遵守你的律例, 求你不要把我棄絕。

    3 - Keep the vision hot

    Ephesians 3:20 AMPC
    [20] Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.

    以弗所書‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭CNV‬‬
    [20] 願榮耀歸給 神,就是歸給那能照著運行在我們裡面的大能,充充足足地成就一切,超過我們所求所想的。

    God's Formula for Success

    Pastor Richard Welsh
    *God's formula for success*

    Psalm 112:1-3 NLT
    [1] Praise the LORD! How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands. [2] Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed. [3] They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever.

    詩 篇 112:1-3 CUV
    [1] 你 們 要 讚 美 耶 和 華 ! 敬 畏 耶 和 華 , 甚 喜 愛 他 命 令 的 , 這 人 便 為 有 福 ! [2] 他 的 後 裔 在 世 必 強 盛 ; 正 直 人 的 後 代 必 要 蒙 福 。 [3] 他 家 中 有 貨 物 , 有 錢 財 ; 他 的 公 義 存 到 永 遠 。

    1 - What is true success?
    1 - 什麼是真正的成功?

    Ecclesiastes 4:4 NLT
    [4] Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless-like chasing the wind.

    傳 道 書 4:4 CUV
    [4] 我 又 見 人 為 一 切 的 勞 碌 和 各 樣 靈 巧 的 工 作 就 被 鄰 舍 嫉 妒 。 這 也 是 虛 空 , 也 是 捕 風 。

    2 - True success comes from chasing the heart of Jesus
    2 - 真正的成功來自追逐耶穌的心

    2 Chronicles 31:21 NLT
    [21] In all that he did in the service of the Temple of God and in his efforts to follow God's laws and commands, Hezekiah sought his God wholeheartedly. As a result, he was very successful.

    歷 代 志 下 31:21 CUV
    [21] 凡 他 所 行 的 , 無 論 是 辦   神 殿 的 事 , 是 遵 律 法 守 誡 命 , 是 尋 求 他 的   神 , 都 是 盡 心 去 行 , 無 不 亨 通 。

    3 - Stay joyful and stick with the formula
    3 - 保持喜樂,堅守公式

    2 Timothy 4:6-8 NLT
    [6] As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near. [7] I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. [8] And now the prize awaits me-the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.

    提 摩 太 後 書 4:6-8 CUV
    [6] 我 現 在 被 澆 奠 , 我 離 世 的 時 候 到 了 。 [7] 那 美 好 的 仗 我 已 經 打 過 了 , 當 跑 的 路 我 已 經 跑 盡 了 , 所 信 的 道 我 已 經 守 住 了 。 [8] 從 此 以 後 , 有 公 義 的 冠 冕 為 我 存 留 , 就 是 按 著 公 義 審 判 的 主 到 了 那 日 要 賜 給 我 的 ; 不 但 賜 給 我 , 也 賜 給 凡 愛 慕 他 顯 現 的 人 。
