God knows the plans - He is in control 神知道計劃 - 祂掌控一切 (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 耶利米書 29:11 CCB 因為我知道我為你們安排的計劃。我的計劃不是要降禍給你們,而是要賜福給你們,使你們的未來充滿希望。這是耶和華說的。 (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” 耶利米書 1:5 CCB 「我還沒有使你在母腹中成形,就認識你;你還未出生,我已使你聖潔,立你做萬國的先知。」 1 - He knows you - We belong 1 - 祂認識你 - 我們屬於這裡 2 - He set you apart - We are special 2 - 祂讓你與眾不同 - 我們是獨特的 3 - He placed us in the right place - We are purposed 3 - 衪放我們在正確的位置上 - 我們是有目的 (Jeremiah 1:6 NIV) “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” 耶利米書 1:6 CCB 我回答說:「主耶和華啊,我太年輕,不懂得怎樣說話。」 (Jeremiah 1:7-9 NIV) But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. (8) Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord. (9) Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 耶利米書 1:7-9 CCB 耶和華卻說:「不要說你太年輕,我派你去誰那裡,你就去誰那裡;我吩咐你說什麼,你就說什麼。(8) 誰也不要怕,因為我與你同在,我必拯救你。這是耶和華說的。」(9) 然後,耶和華伸手摸我的口,對我說:「看啊,我已把我的話放在你口中。 Jesus and Peter 耶穌和彼得 (Matthew 16:17-19 NIV) Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. (18) And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (19) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 馬太福音 16:17-19 CCB 耶穌對他說:「約拿的兒子西門啊,你是有福的!因為這件事不是屬血肉的人告訴你的,而是我天上的父啟示你的。 (18) 我告訴你,你是彼得,我要在這磐石上建立我的教會,陰間的勢力不能勝過它。 (19) 我要把天國的鑰匙交給你。凡你在地上捆綁的,在天上也要捆綁;凡你在地上釋放的,在天上也要釋放。」
