Inner Peace: God’s Best Gift from Heaven

With a smattering of the Bible, wavering faith is common among human beings and Christians. This book offers clear-cut answers with in-depth study of the Bible verses to clarify people’s doubts about God’s justice, wrath of God, Last Judgment, God’s blessing, God’s punishment, life after death and God’s discipline. Fear and anxiety go hand in hand. If you can’ stop worrying, it means you are scared. By believing in God’s arrangement, you will be free from fear. Thus,   anxiety can be identified as the evidence of wavering faith. What is assured, when we demand ourselves to live a highly disciplined life laid out in the Bible, inner peace comes into being for no reason.  Inner peace is the best gift from Heaven(NLT, Jeremiah 29:11).Evidently, as we are endowed with inner peace, everything gets much easier and vice versa.


As we envision the bonus after overcoming a great difficulty, we define the happening as a life challenge. For those who are able to find the hidden marvelous chances behind a disturbing happening, they will tend to be optimistic, positive or hopeful in dealing with the disastrous trial in life. For those who fail to notice the hidden advantageous opportunities behind a disturbing event, they might question about God’s justice and suffer from faith crisis and negative emotions. That fully explains why a life trouble to a person might be conceived as a life challenge by another. Generally, people might have completely different sets of appraisals about a negative event. Anger, sorrow, pessimism and little faith are the most common causes to blind people’s vision to see the blessings behind a disaster. What I learn from life, a disquieting life problem might prevent us from losing something more valuable or prevent us from getting into a bigger trouble.



People tend to hold prejudice against life challenges or stigmatize life troubles because they know nothing about “God’s discipline” (Hebrews 12:11). A blessed life is not an easy life without any life troubles and worries. According to the Bible, God grants suffering of the chosen ones, namely the righteous,for 4 justified reasons. According to the Bible, God’s discipline and God’s love are intertwined. Thus, when our life track differs from our original plan, don’t be scared. God has a better plan for us. It fully explains the strong connection between God’s discipline, life troubles and post-traumatic growth. Going through the hard times gives us the chance to witness unconditional love and sufferings teach us to be truly humble and compassionate to others’ pain. Pride is recognized as a capital sin in the Bible.For those who do not truly believe in God’s existence and God’s mighty power, they are more likely to suffer from anxiety of the unknown. 


When it comes to the definition of a good person, people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity. People have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins. The 7 deadly sins are character weaknesses of human beings, namely the vulnerabilities of human nature. God favors no one. No one can bribe God. God gives everyone different gifts, talents and distinct life problems. The antidotes to whether through life troubles are self-discipline, love, compassion and positive thinking.


Again, do not underestimate the wickedness of pride, prejudice, anger, habitual laziness, apathy and jealousy. Be aware of the danger of negative emotions. God knows the motives of our prayers. God is watching our every move. Our daily lives are under the supervision of God. God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God. At bottom, pessimism, anger and vanity are the things which stop us form having a wonderful life. Be righteous, tender, humble, unselfish and compassionate. Be patient and be hopeful. Do not aim for overnight success. That’s a trap. Be patient to people around you and be patient for what you want out of life. And everything will be alright.

As to God’s discipline, it’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). Do not keep “record of wrongs” (In Hebrews 13:5; 1 Peter 4:8). God will do the justice in due course (Matthew 12:36 NIV). History repeats. Life challenges repeat itself until we correct our unalterable weaknesses. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God (NLT, Jeremiah 29:11). Negative emotions stop us from seeing God’s blessings behind a traumatic event.手札:老天爺(上帝)想的和我們不同,所以別用這個世界或資本主義的思維去解讀老天爺的想法或做法。不要記他人之惡,因為老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了!做該做的事,而不是想做的事。禍福相依,禮物或災難很多時候一時看不透,旁人也看不準。掉牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信即便艱難,所有人都能熬過去的意志!所以創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤!傲慢是聖經當中的惡之首,因為傲慢帶來偏見,偏見引發暴力歧視霸凌與迫害,如種族主義等等。inner peace是老天爺(上帝)給人們的禮物。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!勿低估壞情緒與言語之惡,因為言語也能左右生死。理財,從照顧好自己的健康開始!人在做天在看,老天爺上帝都是證人,自有公斷。中西醫已證實悲傷憂鬱悲觀焦慮是疾病之根源。不安焦慮說的都是恐懼。勿低估甜食之惡(國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者禁糖可望逆轉病情)。學問、宗教和人際關係,最怕道聽塗說和一知半解。放下壞情緒,明天才是真的。一體兩面,隨波逐流有隨波逐流的輕鬆和代價。走不同的路,質疑和落單往往是必然的承受。不屬於你的,只會逗留不會久留。比較有價值的事很可能往往都是既麻煩耗時、沒絕對把握、又考驗耐心的事。高度的執著,也可能是一種自負的暗語。記住自己做過錯誤的判斷,就能裝大自己的彈性。人,勝不過天,盡人事聽天命已足夠,拜拜求心安很好,只是拜拜不等於許願池(老天爺是無法被賄賂的)。自己確信的事,讀聖經與否燒香拜拜與否都不是那麼絕對必要,只要你願意相信老天爺(上帝)時刻關注記錄我們的言行,而願意要求自己柔軟正直自律謙卑憐憫,也就足夠了。互相督促。聖經點出了怠惰、憤怒與追逐私利之惡,強調柔軟、自律與耐心的重要。聖經點出7 deadly sins 與7 heavenly virtues. 不支持廢死,偏好新加坡的法律,不犯法就無須擔心法律嚴格。基本人權,只有好好做人的人才可以使用基本人權!上帝眼裡,也有不可寬恕的罪,所以才有地獄。一般人對於好人的定義與上帝對於人類的基本要求差距很大,讀了聖經就會明白上帝對人類的基本期許,大約是儒家的聖人準則那樣高的期待。沒有人完美無誤,根據聖經的學習,用力去愛會是解答。
