8月1日 每日经历神


81

标  题:忠心

经  节:耶和华的眼目遍察全地,要显大能帮助向祂心存诚实的人。(历代志下十六章9节上)

如果你向神心存诚实,你不需要寻找祂,祂正在寻找你呢!神告诉亚撒王,祂不断看顾那些在神面前持守忠心的人。当祂查找他们,祂以自己大能的同在,向他们显现。当亚撒王面对逐渐迫近古实王谢拉所率领的大军(历代志下十四:9),亚撒经历到神威严的大能。纵然亚撒当时面对压倒性悬殊军力的差距,但神赐下胜利给他。虽然亚撒经历了这次的奇迹,下一次面对敌军时,他对神没有信心。即使亚撒后来所面对的军队,军力远远小于神上回所打败的军队,亚撒的信心畏缩了。神鼓励亚撒勇敢,要知道神永远不打盹,也不休息。祂从来不会分心,祂殷勤地寻找那些向祂心存诚实的人。

有时候,我们所面对的生命挑战,看起来好像不可能胜过。你是否觉得自己太软弱,无法战胜仇敌?不要放弃!向神心存诚实,因为祂不断看顾你,并且渴望在你的生命中,展示祂的大能。诚如神曾经帮助历世历代的圣徒,祂不但愿意也能够让你胜过当前的挑战。问题不在神是否正寻找属祂的百姓,而是在祂的百姓是否正寻求祂。让神的应许成为你的安慰,祂应许你,祂正看顾你,并且要赐下胜利给你。


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.
