8月1日 每日經歷神


81

標  題:忠心

經  節:耶和華的眼目遍察全地,要顯大能幫助向祂心存誠實的人。(歷代志下十六章9節上)

如果你向神心存誠實,你不需要尋找祂,祂正在尋找你呢!神告訴亞撒王,祂不斷看顧那些在神面前持守忠心的人。當祂查找他們,祂以自己大能的同在,向他們顯現。當亞撒王面對逐漸迫近古實王謝拉所率領的大軍(歷代志下十四:9),亞撒經歷到神威嚴的大能。縱然亞撒當時面對壓倒性懸殊軍力的差距,但神賜下勝利給他。雖然亞撒經歷了這次的奇跡,下一次面對敵軍時,他對神沒有信心。即使亞撒後來所面對的軍隊,軍力遠遠小於神上回所打敗的軍隊,亞撒的信心畏縮了。神鼓勵亞撒勇敢,要知道神永遠不打盹,也不休息。祂從來不會分心,祂殷勤地尋找那些向祂心存誠實的人。

有時候,我們所面對的生命挑戰,看起來好像不可能勝過。你是否覺得自己太軟弱,無法戰勝仇敵?不要放棄!向神心存誠實,因為祂不斷看顧你,並且渴望在你的生命中,展示祂的大能。誠如神曾經幫助曆世歷代的聖徒,祂不但願意也能夠讓你勝過當前的挑戰。問題不在神是否正尋找屬祂的百姓,而是在祂的百姓是否正尋求祂。讓神的應許成為你的安慰,祂應許你,祂正看顧你,並且要賜下勝利給你。


A Loyal Heart

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to
show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. (2
Chronicles 16:9)

If your heart is loyal to God, you do not have to look for Him, He is
already looking for you! God told King Asa that He continuously watches for
those who are steadfast in their commitment to Him. When He finds them, He
makes His presence powerfully evident to them. King Asa had experienced God’s
awesome power when he faced a menacing army from Ethiopia (2 Chron. 14:9). God
gave Asa victory, despite the overwhelming odds he faced. In spite of this
miracle, the next time Asa faced an enemy he failed to trust God. Even though
the army Asa faced was smaller than the one God had previously defeated, Asa’s
faith in God faltered. God encouraged Asa to take courage in knowing that God
never rests or sleeps. He is never distracted, but diligently seeks individuals
whose hearts are completely committed to Him.

Life’s challenges sometimes seem impossible. Do you feel you are too
weak to fight the battle? Don’t give up! Keep your heart loyal to God, for He
constantly watches over you, and He desires to demonstrate His strength in your
life. God is willing and just as capable of giving you victory in your current
challenge as He was with those in times past. The question is not whether God
is looking for His people, but whether His people are seeking Him. Take comfort
in God’s promise that He watches over you and He wants to give you victory.
