Reminder from a pastor...一位牧師的提醒

Sovereignty of God 
In 2016, we  added this new web page to highlight the need to recognize and to live under the sovereignty of God. In our postmodernism era , we live in the environment in which apostate and liberalism rampage throughout  education, news media,  commerce, sports, and entertainment. According to political correctiveness, we are supposed to shun any mentioning of God in our day to day conversations. Our societies have excluded God from our vocabulary and hence the humankind  is under the judgement of Almighty God.
To Christians, we  truly need to conform to the will of God and we  desperately need to be cleansed daily from evil corruption. In other word, we need  to live wholeheartedly under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ.





The contents of this web page include:

* Sovereignty of God in creation(3/2016)

*  God Sovereignty in Maintaining the Cosmos(3/2016)  

*  God the Sovereign Savior (4/2016)       




* 神的創造主權(3/2016)

*上帝維護宇宙的主權 (3/2016)

* 耶和華是我的救主 (4/2016)







Sovereignty of God in creation 神的創造主權

According to mainstream liberal media, God is dead and the world was from a big bang and the mankind has evolved from a single cell by random mutation without  a purpose. God is out of our education system and is excluded from our daily lives. Liberalism is all sounded great like the oratory empty talks of politicians, but  liberalism is indeed totally useless and futile throughout our history irregardless of cultures or national origin.


You may ask why it is so. Just open your eyes to see the evils of your society. They are the same as ancient times. Indeed, there are no new evils under the Sun. Do you know why we can not solve our societal ills, be it the poverty, or national conflicts, or domestic violence. Because we do not recognize God as God. We forsake our Creator and try to pretend that we were God.


For Christians, we believe that the universe and all things including mankind were created by God. Actually, by looking at the created things, all men should have known the power and nature of God. For example, by looking at the stars, and the galaxies, we should know the infinite power of God. By looking at the beauty of even a small flower, we should know the wisdom of God. Just looking at our own bodies, we should be amazed by the complexity of our biological systems including our immune system which protects our health. So there are no excuses that mankind does not know its creator.


Thus, unbelief is by choice and is a deliberate act. Come to think of it, there is only one fatal mistake that any one can make and that is to forsake his/her creator. When anyone approaches the last day of one’s life, many issues became unimportant except eternal life through Jesus Christ.



God created the universe by His sovereign will. He not only created it but also sustains it every moment including keeping your every breath. As His creatures, we need to recognize this reality the sooner the better, especially in our anti-God cultures.


In the creation of time and space and all things in the universe, our God shows His attributes and eternal power;



A. His Infinite Power and Wisdom—In billions and billions of stars, He created each of them and calls them each by name as Psalms  147:1-4 says,
Praise the Lord.
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
    he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars
    and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
    his understanding has no limit.
6 The Lord sustains the humble
    but casts the wicked to the ground.

147 你們要讚美耶和華!因歌頌我們的神為善為美,讚美的話是合宜的。
2 耶和華建造耶路撒冷,聚集以色列中被趕散的人。
3 他醫好傷心的人,裹好他們的傷處。
4 他數點星宿的數目,一一稱它的名。
5 我們的主為大,最有能力,他的智慧無法測度。
6 耶和華扶持謙卑人,將惡人傾覆於地。


B. His Limitless Loving Kindness and Resources— He provides  the beautiful Earth which we call it our home planet with food and seasons.
7 Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
    make music to our God on the harp.
8 He covers the sky with clouds;
    he supplies the earth with rain
    and makes grass grow on the hills.
9 He provides food for the cattle
    and for the young ravens when they call.
10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love. 


B.祂無限的慈愛和資源 - 祂提供了美麗的地球,我們把它稱為我們的地球家園,並提供食物和季節
7 你們要以感謝向耶和華歌唱,用琴向我們的神歌頌。
8 他用雲遮天,為地降雨,使草生長在山上。
9 他賜食給走獸和啼叫的小烏鴉。
10 他不喜悅馬的力大,不喜愛人的腿快。
11 耶和華喜愛敬畏他和盼望他慈愛的人。


C. His Changeless Nature through His Moral and Physical Laws—- His governs all  nature with His physical laws and He runs the universe by His laws as indicated by Psalms 19:1-9,
The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5     It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.


C.祂不變的性質,通過他的道德和天然的法則-- 祂用天然的法則主宰一切自然,祂用祂的法律管理宇宙,如詩篇19:1-9所述,
19 大衛的詩,交於伶長。

1 諸天述說神的榮耀,穹蒼傳揚他的手段。
2 這日到那日發出言語,這夜到那夜傳出知識。
3 無言無語,也無聲音可聽。
4 他的量帶通遍天下,他的言語傳到地極。神在其間為太陽安設帳幕,
5 太陽如同新郎出洞房,又如勇士歡然奔路。
6 它從天這邊出來,繞到天那邊,沒有一物被隱藏不得他的熱氣。
7 耶和華的律法全備,能甦醒人心。耶和華的法度確定,能使愚人有智慧。

8 耶和華的訓詞正直,能快活人的心。耶和華的命令清潔,能明亮人的眼目。
9 耶和華的道理潔淨,存到永遠。耶和華的典章真實,全然公義。


D.His Orderliness and Specific Provision—All things were orderly created and are not subject to evolution as indicated in Genesis 1:11-12,
11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.


創世記 1:11-12
11 神說:「地要發生青草和結種子的菜蔬,並結果子的樹木,各從其類,果子都包著核。」事就這樣成了。 12 於是地發生了青草和結種子的菜蔬,各從其類;並結果子的樹木,各從其類,果子都包著核。神看著是好的。


E. His Particular Love towards Man in creation— He created man in His image and has a special compassion for mankind; Genesis 1:26-30
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.


創世記 1:26-30

26 神說:「我們要照著我們的形象,按著我們的樣式造人,使他們管理海裡的魚、空中的鳥、地上的牲畜和全地,並地上所爬的一切昆蟲。」 27 神就照著自己的形象造人,乃是照著他的形象,造男造女。 28 神就賜福給他們,又對他們說:「要生養眾多,遍滿地面,治理這地,也要管理海裡的魚、空中的鳥和地上各樣行動的活物。」 29 神說:「看哪,我將遍地上一切結種子的菜蔬和一切樹上所結有核的果子,全賜給你們做食物。 30 至於地上的走獸和空中的飛鳥,並各樣爬在地上有生命的物,我將青草賜給牠們做食物。」事就這樣成了。

F. He creates husband and wife to love each other and love their children  as stated in Genesis 2:21-25,
21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
    for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.


創世記 2:21-25
21 耶和華神使他沉睡,他就睡了。於是取下他的一條肋骨,又把肉合起來。 22 耶和華神就用那人身上所取的肋骨造成一個女人,領她到那人跟前。 23 那人說:「這是我骨中的骨、肉中的肉!可以稱她為女人,因為她是從男人身上取出來的。」 24 因此,人要離開父母,與妻子聯合,二人成為一體。 25 當時夫妻二人赤身露體,並不羞恥。


G. His Holiness and Sovereign Will of making our body the temple of God as told in 1 Corinthians 6:13,
13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.


1 Corinthians 6:19
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?


1 Corinthians 3:17
17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.



哥林多前書 6:13

13 食物是為肚腹,肚腹是為食物;但神要叫這兩樣都廢壞。身子不是為淫亂,乃是為主,主也是為身子;


歌 林 多 前 書 6:19
19 豈 不 知 你 們 的 身 子 就 是 聖 靈 的 殿 麼 ? 這 聖 靈 是 從 神 而 來 , 住 在 你 們 裡 頭 的 ; 並 且 你 們 不 是 自 己 的 人 ;


歌 林 多 前 書 3:17
17 若 有 人 毀 壞 神 的 殿 , 神 必 要 毀 壞 那 人 ; 因 為 神 的 殿 是 聖 的 , 這 殿 就 是 你 們 。


In conclusion, Psalm 53 is indeed applicable to this rebellious and apostate 21 century world.

Psalm 53 -- Folly of the Godless, and the Restoration of Israel


53 The fool has said in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity;
There is none who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
3 Every one of them has turned aside;
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call upon God?
5 There they are in great fear
Where no fear was,
For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you;
You have put them to shame,
Because God has despised them.
6 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God brings back the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.

Each of us needs to chose whom we want to serve. So Joshua 24:15 is relevant to this apostate era of ours.

Joshua 24:15
15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Indeed in this apostate time, as for me and my house, we will serve our Lord Jesus Christ.



                                                                 詩 篇 53

53  愚 頑 人 心 裡 說 : 沒 有 神 他 們 都 是 邪 惡 , 行 了 可 憎 惡 的 罪 孽 ; 沒 有 一 個 人 行 善 。2 神 從 天 上 垂 看 世 人 , 要 看 有 明 白 的 沒 有 ? 有 尋 求 他 的 沒 有 ?
3 他 們 各 人 都 退 後 , 一 同 變 為 污 穢 ; 並 沒 有 行 善 的 , 連 一 個 也 沒 有 。
4 作 孽 的 沒 有 知 識 麼 ? 他 們 吞 吃 我 的 百 姓 如 同 吃 飯 一 樣 , 並 不 求 告 神 。
5 他 們 在 無 可 懼 怕 之 處 就 大 大 害 怕 , 因 為 神 把 那 安 營 攻 擊 你 之 人 的 骨 頭 散 開 了 。 你 使 他 們 蒙 羞 , 因 為 神 棄 絕 了 他 們 。
6 但 願 以 色 列 的 救 恩 從 錫 安 而 出 。 神 救 回 他 被 擄 的 子 民 那 時 , 雅 各 要 快 樂 , 以 色 列 要 歡 喜 。


約書亞記 24:15

15 若是你們以侍奉耶和華為不好,今日就可以選擇所要侍奉的,是你們列祖在大河那邊所侍奉的神呢,是你們所住這地的亞摩利人的神呢?至於我和我家,我們必定侍奉耶和華。」


Our Closest Neighbor Star Alpha Centauri (4.3 Lightyears away)

God Sovereignty in Maintaining the Cosmos           上帝維護宇宙的主權

Not many people of this age would insist that the earth is flat. But this fact was not so clear just several hundred years ago in that there would be pundits on either side arguing their positions with arrogance and ignorance just like the pundits do on many issues today.



Similarly, not many people would say that the cosmos consists only of the Earth today. However, not many years ago, we have people believing in that the Earth is the center of the universe. Now, if the cosmos consists of billions  of galaxies and each galaxy may contain billions of stars, it is very clear that we human beings have very little abilities to sustain or maintain the operations of the universe.



Yet, there is no lack of ignorance of liberals or atheists today because they behave as if they were the power center of the solar system, which, by the way, is very hot like hell. But the truth is that men have very little influence as to the operations of the universe. Some pundits may argue that we know a lot about astronomy. But majority of astronomers would tell you that there are many many things that we do not know about the universe. We may have many theories but that do not means that we have any power in influencing the operations of the universe.
然而,當今不乏無知的自由主義者或無神論者,因為他們表現出自高自大​、好像自己是太陽系中心的權力態勢 (順便說說,他們不知太陽系中心是一個像地獄般非常熱的地方)。但是事實上,人類在宇宙的運作,只有很小、很小的影響力。一些專家可能會說,我們擁有很多天文學的知識。但大多數天文學家會告訴你,宇宙有很多、很多的事情,是我們不知道的。我們有很多理論;但是,這並不意味著我們有任何能力、來影響宇宙的運作。


Why we want to bring out this reality? So that men should know our powerlessness and our limitation in influencing our solar system,  let alone the operations of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond. So no matter what you are— kings, queens, premiers, presidents, emperors, dictators, or gurus, or ordinary people;  men are almost nothing in the whole scheme of the universe. You can easily prove this to yourself in history.

In human history, millions of people ignored their Creator and instead, created their idols and died with their idols. In modern day cultures, people are still following the political correctiveness of apostasy and unfortunately die in the deception of the world.



The following are a few facts for us to ponder on insignificance of our human race in the universe without our Creator:

* Vastness of the universe is beyond our comprehension. The space is so large that we use lightyear to measure it. A lightyear is the distance for light to travel one year. Our commercial jetliners fly about 580 miles per hour. It will take us riding in a commercial flight 10 billion years to equal to the distance of one light year.

* Our closest star is called Alpha Centauri which is located 4.3 lightyears away. It is impossible for us to reach it.

* The diameter of our Milky Way Galaxy is 100, 000 light years.

* Our closest Galaxy neighbor is called Andromeda Galaxy which is located 2.5 million lightyears away.

* The observable universe reaches 93 billions light years away.

Thus, the size of the universe is indeed beyond our comprehension. Who are we even dare to forsake our Creator!! Due to extreme deceptive scheme of the world, there are millioms of souls lost every year. We do not know how tomorrow  will fare  for each of us. For each of us who loves eternal life, it is extremely critical to treasure this hour when Christ Jesus is calling you and to force yourself by choice to return to our Creator to be saved under the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord.


* 宇宙之大是遠超乎我們的理觧,一般是用光年來測量。一光年是光跑一年的距離。如果我們座噴射客機,時速是約每小時580 英里,我們要座一​百萬年才等於一光年的距離。
*離我們最近的星(Alpha Centauri)是4.3光年。這是我們不可能到達的地方。
*我們最近的星系叫Andromeda Galaxy,是二百五十萬光年之外。



I. Now let us listen to just a few remarks from God concerning human beings, you and me;


A. Psalm 103:14-16
14 For He knows our frame;
He remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more.


B. Psalm 90:8-12
8 You have set our iniquities before You,
Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.
9 For all our days have passed away in Your wrath; We finish our years like a sigh.
10 The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11 Who knows the power of Your anger?
For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath.
12 So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.


 C. 1 Peter 1:23-25
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 24 because
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.


I. 現在讓我們來聽聽,上帝告訴你我人類的幾句話。

A.  詩篇 103:14-16

14 因為他知道我們的本體,思念我們不過是塵土。
15 至於世人,他的年日如草一樣,他發旺如野地的花。
16 經風一吹,便歸無有,他的原處也不再認識他。


B.  詩篇 90:8-12

8 你將我們的罪孽擺在你面前,將我們的隱惡擺在你面光之中。
9 我們經過的日子都在你震怒之下,我們度盡的年歲好像一聲嘆息。
10 我們一生的年日是七十歲,若是強壯可到八十歲,但其中所矜誇的不過是勞苦愁煩;轉眼成空,我們便如飛而去。
11 誰曉得你怒氣的權勢?誰按著你該受的敬畏曉得你的憤怒呢?
12 求你指教我們怎樣數算自己的日子,好叫我們得著智慧的心。


C.  彼得前書 1:23-25

23 你們蒙了重生,不是由於能壞的種子,乃是由於不能壞的種子,是藉著神活潑常存的道。 
24 因為,「凡有血氣的盡都如草,他的美榮都像草上的花。草必枯乾,花必凋謝, 25 唯有主的道是永存的。」所傳給你們的福音就是這道。


II. Let us understand divine revelation about God in the Bible:


A. Besides Me there Is No Other God
Isaiah 44:6
6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel,
And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
‘I am the First and I am the Last;
Besides Me there is no God.


B. God is all in all
Revelation 1:8
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”


C. Jesus Testifies to the Churches
Revelation 22:12-14
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.


II. 讓我們明白、上帝在聖經中關於自己的啟示:


A. 除我以外,再沒有真神

以賽亞書 44:6

6 「耶和華以色列的君,以色列的救贖主,萬軍之耶和華如此說:『我是首先的,我是末後的,除我以外,再沒有真神。


B. 上帝是永在的全能者
啟示錄 1:8
8 主神說:「我是阿拉法,我是俄梅戛,是昔在、今在、以後永在的全能者。」


C. 耶穌對教會的見證 
啟示錄 22:12-14
12 「看哪,我必快來!賞罰在我,要照各人所行的報應他。 13 我是阿拉法,我是俄梅戛;我是首先的,我是末後的;我是初,我是終。 14 那些洗淨自己衣服的有福了!可得權柄能到生命樹那裡,也能從門進城。

III. Sovereignty in Maintaining the Universe

A. God is in control of the Future
Isaiah 48:3-5
3 “I have declared the former things from the beginning; They went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.
4 Because I knew that you were obstinate, And your neck was an iron sinew, And your brow bronze,
5 Even from the beginning I have declared it to you; Before it came to pass I proclaimed it to you, Lest you should say, ‘My idol has done them, And my carved image and my molded image
Have commanded them.’


B. God is Almighty and Sovereignty in the operations of the universe
Isaiah 55:8-18
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower, And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.


III. 上帝維護宇宙的主權


A.  上帝掌控未來

以賽亞書 48:3-5
3 主說:「早先的事我從古時說明,已經出了我的口,也是我所指示的,我忽然行做,事便成就。 
4 因為我素來知道你是頑梗的,你的頸項是鐵的,你的額是銅的, 
5 所以我從古時將這事給你說明,在未成以先指示你,免得你說:『這些事是我的偶像所行的,是我雕刻的偶像和我鑄造的偶像所命定的。』


B. 上帝是全能的,掌握宇宙運作的主權。

以賽亞書 55:8-13
8 耶和華說:「我的意念非同你們的意念,我的道路非同你們的道路。
9 天怎樣高過地,照樣,我的道路高過你們的道路,我的意念高過你們的意念。 
10 雨雪從天而降並不返回,卻滋潤地土,使地上發芽結實,使撒種的有種,使要吃的有糧。 
11 我口所出的話也必如此,決不徒然返回,卻要成就我所喜悅的,在我發它去成就的事上必然亨通。 
12 你們必歡歡喜喜而出來,平平安安蒙引導,大山小山必在你們面前發聲歌唱,田野的樹木也都拍掌。 
13 松樹長出代替荊棘,番石榴長出代替蒺藜,這要為耶和華留名,作為永遠的證據,不能剪除。


In conclusion,  the universe was created by our Lord Jesus Christ, and for Him, and  maintained by Him and for His preeminence in all things.

Colossians 1:15-19
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,

May we truly love our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church!

May we truly see the glory of God and give God due recognition and worship God with all our heart, mind, and strength forever and ever, Amen!


總之,宇宙是由我們的主耶穌基督創造的,宇宙藉著祂造的,又是為祂造的, 並且萬有也靠祂而立。使祂可以在凡事上居首位,


歌羅西書 1:15-19
15 愛子是那不能看見之神的像,是首生的,在一切被造的以先。 
16 因為萬有都是靠他造的,無論是天上的、地上的,能看見的、不能看見的,或是有位的、主治的、執政的、掌權的,一概都是藉著他造的,又是為他造的。 
17 他在萬有之先,萬有也靠他而立。 
18 他也是教會全體之首。他是元始,是從死裡首先復生的,使他可以在凡事上居首位, 
19 因為父喜歡叫一切的豐盛在他裡面居住。




Our closest Galaxy(2.5million lightyears away)



Psalm 18:1-3

God the Sovereign Savior
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord, who spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said:

18 I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.



詩 篇 18:1-3

耶 和 華 是 我 的 救 主 

18 ( 耶 和 華 的 僕 人 大 衛 的 詩 , 交 與 伶 長 。 當 耶 和 華 救 他 脫 離 一 切 仇 敵 和 掃 羅 之 手 的 日 子 , 他 向 耶 和 華 念 這 詩 的 話 。 說 : ) 耶 和 華 , 我 的 力 量 啊 , 我 愛 你 !
2 耶 和 華 是 我 的 巖 石 , 我 的 山 寨 , 我 的 救 主 , 我 的 神 , 我 的 磐 石 , 我 所 投 靠 的 。 他 是 我 的 盾 牌 , 是 拯 救 我 的 角 , 是 我 的 高 臺 。
3 我 要 求 告 當 讚 美 的 耶 和 華 ; 這 樣 我 必 從 仇 敵 手 中 被 救 出 來 。



Reminders... 提醒

Only God - See Deut 6:4-5
