  • 然而我要因耶和華歡欣,因救我的神喜樂。(哈3:18)
    1月11日

        當那位加利利男孩把五個餅交給主耶穌以後,主如何處理呢?主就將它擘開。神常常將那些奉獻給祂的東西擘開,凡祂所接納的,祂就擘開,然後祝福,並使它們去應付世人的需要。

        你、我豈不是也有同樣的經歷嗎?你把自己奉獻給神,但一旦發現所有的事情都不順利,以致你內心起伏不安時,就抱怨、批評主所帶領你的道路。這種矛盾不安的心境,如果繼續存在,那就證明你正在被擘開。但這目的又是為何呢?
        因在已往的日子,你太屬於世界,太容易給世界所使用,但你卻不夠讓神來使用。這就是許多基督徒所遭遇的難題和悲劇。我們是否樂意給神使用?如果樂意,那就該不斷地將自己交在祂手裡,不要抱怨祂所帶領的道路,只要以讚美和期待的心情來接受祂的安排。

  • Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3:18)
    January 11th

        When the Galilean boy brought his bread to Jesus, what did Jesus do with it? He broke it. God will always break what is offered to Him. He breaks what He takes, then blesses and uses it to meet men’s needs.

        Is not this true to your experience and mine? You give yourself to the Lord, and at once everything goes so badly wrong that you are tempted to find fault with His ways. To persist in such an attitude is to be broken, yes indeed, but to what purpose?

        You have gone too far for the world to use you, but you have not gone far enough for God. This is the tragedy of many a Christian. Do we want Him to use us? Then day by day let us go on giving to Him, not finding fault with His methods, but accepting His handing of us with praise and expectation.
