Lead others to Jesus

八月十九日每日灵修(夜) Evening by Evening

求祢救我脱离人为我暗设的网罗,因为祢是我的保障。(诗篇31:4)

我们属灵的仇敌曾是伊甸园的毒蛇。它们想藉微妙的谎言和幻觉使我们陷入网罗中。诗人的祈祷表示了信徒可能像鸟一般被攫捕。捕鸟者技巧地做工,疏忽的人不久就会被网罗围住。本节经文乃是俘掳求告神救他脱离撒旦的网罗。永恒的爱能将圣徒从狮子的爪牙和地狱的肚腹中拯救出来。要将一个灵魂从试探的网罗中救出来,可能需要强劲的拉拔;要将一个人从恶毒狡猾的陷阱中释放出来,也需要强劲的大能。但是神能应付各种急难,猎人布下最巧妙的网罗都不能抓住神的选民。那些狡猾的放置网罗的人有祸了;试探者最终将遭毁灭。

「因为祢是我保障。」在这简短的话语中有多少无法表达的甜美啊!当我们紧握天国的保障,就能喜乐地面对辛劳,欢欣地忍受苦难。神的能力将撕破敌人的一切计谋、混淆它们的政策、模糊它们的欺骗伎俩。有父神的无比大能,在祂一方的人是何等快乐。当我们被恶毒狡猾的网罗缠住时,我们自己的力量毫无用处,但主的力量是有效的。我们只要求,就会发现神的大能近在咫尺。若我们因着信唯独倚靠以色列全能之神的保障,我们便可在祷告中支取这神圣的倚靠:

“主啊,从今以后我们寻求你的面:
  我们被引诱,贫穷又软弱;
  保守我们有谦卑温柔的心。
  不要让我们跌倒,不要让我们跌倒。”

发现space这个字是敏感词,一脸懵逼~

早上读罗马书第八章的时候非常感动,因为知道我们所受的是儿子的心,知道天父是何等爱我们,知道我们在基督里的产业是何等丰盛。我们等待的时候有时候可能失去信心,有时候可能面对许多困难和拦阻,但是因着耶稣基督,这照亮外邦人的光和以色列的荣耀,和天父的爱,我们都得胜有余了。

下面是我喜欢的message bible信息版圣经的译本。愿神赐给我们像保罗一样勇士的心,使我们如鹰展翅上腾,因为那等候耶和华的必从新得力。

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?"

God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children.

And we know we are going to get what's coming to us - an unbelievable inheritance!

These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance.

That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting.

But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.

He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God.

That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?

They kill us in cold blood because they hate you. We're sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

But in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

I'm absolutely convinced that nothing - nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable - absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
