“世上的国成了我主和主基督的国; 他要作王,直到永永远远。”启示录 11:15

The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. Revelation 11:15

我们基督徒应该常常倚靠圣灵。我们应该记得基督通过圣灵住在我们里面。我们的身体是三位一体第三位圣灵的驻地。我们不应该寻求他的帮助,因为我们是仆人。我们应该邀请他进入我们里面,完全作工,掌管我们的生命。我们应该告诉他我们是多么软弱、无助、不稳定、不可靠。我们应该站在旁边,让他为我们做选择和决定。我们知道,圣灵也为我们祷告(参罗8:26),对我们的软弱是莫大的安慰。我们自己是不可能完全坚持得住基督徒的生命,但是圣灵可以。如果我们过于挣扎、纷争、纠结,他就很难支持我们。我们在主里放松、安息,丢弃里面的紧张和复杂,完全仰望神。我不应该太忧虑如何做决定,让神为我做决定。不要为明天忧虑,神掌管明天。他在一开始就看到结束。不要为生活必需忧虑,神必供应和保障。

一个真正得胜的基督徒,不管有多少烦恼、矛盾、紧张,都坚信神在控制,神必得胜。因为圣灵的工作,我们身体和心灵的疾病都能得到医治,我们的忧虑、矛盾、紧张压力都可以去除。不管有什么困难,不管处于什么境况,我们必须牢记,像Corrie ten Boom说的,耶稣是得胜者。

We Christians need to rely constantly on the Holy Spirit. We need to remember that Christ dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. Our bodies are the dwelling place of the Third Person of the Trinity. We should not ask Him to help us as we would a servant.We should ask Him to come in and do it all, to take over in our lives. We should tell Him how weak, helpless, unstable, and unreliable we are. It is important that we stand aside and let Him take over in all our choices and decisions. We know that the Holy Spirit prays for us (Romans 8), and what a comfort that should be to the weakest of us.It is impossible for us to hold out in the Christian life-but He can hold us. It is very difficult for Him to hold us if we are struggling, fighting, and striving. We should just relax and rest in the Lord, letting go all those inner tensions and rest in the Lord, letting go all those inner tensions and complexes. We should rely completely on Him. I should not fret and worry about important decisions-I should let Him make them for me. Do not worry about tomorrow-He is the God of tomorrow. He sees the end from the beginning. Do not worry about the necessities of life-He is there to supply and provide.

A true  victorious Christian is one who, in spite of worries, inner conflicts, and tensions, is confident that God is in control and will be victorious in the end. In reliance on the Holy Spirit, we will find that many of our physical and mental ailments will disappear along with many worries, inner conflicts, and tensions.Whatever our difficulties, whatever our circumstances, we must remember, as Corrie ten Boom used to say, “Jesus is victor!
