2021-10-10 How to Pray 如何祷告(3)

管理员Tina
发表于 2022-04-30

Last time we looked at the first two verses of the Lord’s prayer, 上两周我们分享了主祷文前两节,“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” 我们在天上的父:愿人都尊你的名为圣。10愿你的国降临;愿你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。(Matt69-10Today, we’ll look at the third petition 今天我们来看主祷文的第三句祈求, “Give us today our daily bread.” 我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。(Matt611

 

1, Pray to rely on God not man. 祷告依赖神不依赖人

 

Since Jesus said, 主耶稣说过“for the pagans run after what to eat and what to wear, 吃什么、喝什么,都是外邦人所求的,and Your Heavenly Father knows what you need” 你们需用的一切,你们的天父是知道的Why do we still need to ask God for our daily bread, 为什么我们还要向神求日用饮食?We see in the bible我们看见在圣经里 the disciples had to rely on God for their daily supplies through prayer, 因此门徒就必须为神每天的供应来祷告,because Jesus called them to laid down their careers to follow Him因为耶稣呼召他们放下事业来跟随祂 ,and God faithfully empowered them with all the physical, mental, and spiritual resources 神也信实地供应了他们身体、和心,灵所需的一切,they needed to fulfil the calling on their lives. 以完成神对他们生命的呼召。we also need that, 我们也需要,because we all are called to accomplish what we’re called to be and to do in this life.我们都蒙召要成为神召我们所成为的人、和完成神召所要成的事。Today, most of us aren’t called to lay down our careers to follow Him, 今天,我们多数人不是被召放下工作去跟随主,we all have jobs. 我们都有工作。But we’re still taught to pray, “give us today our daily bread.” 但主仍教导我们为日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。祷告。

 

How do we pray? 怎样祷告?Ever since Adam and Eve refused to listen to God, 自从亚当夏娃悖逆不听神的话,and chose to listen to Satan, 却听了撒旦的话说who said “you will be like God.” “你会像神一样”, People no longer look to God, 人类从此就不再倚靠神,the Creator of all and the true source of all. 这位万有的创造主,一切供应的真正源头。They look to man; they look to other things 人就倚靠人和物,instead of the One and Only true God. 来取代倚靠独一真神。We used to look to people for provision. 我们习惯于从人得供应,Have you heard this saying? 你听过这句话吗?“The customer is King (god) or customer first”. “顾客就是上帝顾客第一Because we’re taught the success of our business depends on customers. 因我们被教导说商业成功靠的是顾客。Then what happens? 然后发生什么事?When you focus your eyes on man, 当我们定睛于人、on your customers, 顾客、on your bosses, 老板、or on whoever you think is in charge, 或是某个负责人,

you can be disappointed, 你要么灰心失望,or you can be threatened, or manipulated by man, 要么被人吓唬、被人操控,“I give you business to do, so you must listen to me.” 人会说我给你生意做,你得听我的。Or you may tend to think like this, 或者你会想,“He gave me this job, I must please him even if my heart is unwilling.” 是他给了我这份工作,哪怕不愿意我也要讨他喜欢。” When you look to man, you’re manipulated by man. 倚靠人就被人操控,Then, you fall into the snare of fear of man. 然后你就掉进惧怕人的网罗。Studies show that manipulation can destroy relationships研究显示操控会毁坏人与人的关系, and those who are manipulated can suffer poor mental health.被操控的人易得情绪毛病。

 

Victims of chronic manipulation may: 长期被操控辖制的人会:Feel guilty; 有负罪感;Feel depressed; 感到沮丧;Develop anxiety; 感到焦虑;easily get angry 易怒Constantly try to please the manipulative person; 常常讨好操控他的人;Lie about their feelings隐藏他们的情绪;Compare, Complain, and blame. 比较;抱怨;责怪人。

 

Manipulation causes poor mental health. 操控会导致情绪不健康。All these emotional problems show 所有这些情绪问题显明,that we’ve been manipulated by listening to lies in some way, 我们都在某种程度上被谎言操控,“My boss gave me this job.” 我老板给了我这份工作。True or False? 真的?假的?Our daily bread comes from a job or money. 工作和钱和日用饮食关联。Who is the one who gives us our daily bread? 谁才是赐给我们日用饮食的那位?Jesus said to the Israelites,耶稣对以色列人这样说:Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 我实实在在地告诉你们,那从天上来的粮不是摩西赐给你们的,乃是我父将天上来的真粮赐给你们。33 因为神的粮就是那从天上降下来、赐生命给世界的。John6:32-33

 

Jesus is saying, 主耶稣是在说:“don’t look to man, but look to God”. 不要倚靠人,要倚靠神。” He is the Source of life. 祂是生命的源头,Jesus supplies us all we need for this life, 主耶稣赐给我们今生所需的一切,and He provides us with a job through people, 祂借着人赐给我们工作,so we need to respect people but rely on God. 我们应当尊敬人,但倚靠神。So at this point, 因此在这个点上,we can pray for the growth of our faith 我们可以祷告求信心增长,that our hearts may really believe Jesus is our Supplier not man, 真正信主耶稣是我们的供应者,人不是,so we won’t focus on man, 以至于我们不再定睛于人,but focus on developing a relationship with Jesus; 而是定睛于与主建立亲密关系;We repent and forgive ourselves or people whom we might have disappointed because of our wrong focus; 我们要悔改并饶恕自己,也饶恕那些使我们失望的人,那是因为我们自己放错了焦聚;we can ask God to empower and supply us with the resources 我们可祷告求神赐给我们所需的一切资源,we need to accomplish the calling on our lives, 使我们完成生命的呼召,especially toward the goal of ‘Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ 就是为愿你的国度降临,愿你的旨意行在地上如同行在天上的使命。

 

2, Pray against worry. 祷告除去忧虑

 

“Daily bread” refers to our daily needs. 日用饮食指的是我们的日常所需。Jesus knows that one of the basic human fears is worrying about not having enough. 耶稣知道人最本能的惧怕就是 怕不够。Why? 为什么?Because ever since Adam and Eve rebelled against God, 因自从亚当夏娃悖逆神,a curse was put on man, 一个咒诅就临到人类“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it, all the days of your life. Gen 3:17 地必为你的缘故受咒诅; 你必终身劳苦才能从地里得吃的。(Gen 3:17下) Through Adam the curse on man was sweat, hard, toil, pain. 汗流满面、艰难、劳苦、痛楚的咒诅从亚当传给全人类,Life became burdened and full of pressure and worry. 生活就是劳苦重担,充满压力和忧虑。That’s the way our life should look like under the system of the kingdom of darkness这是我们的生活在黑暗国度下该有的样子That’s why we’re used to thinking于是我们习惯于问, “What will happen tomorrow? What if…” 明天会发生什么事?要是……怎么办?

But the truth tells us, 但真理说,Col西 1:13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,” 13 他救了我们脱离黑暗的权势,把我们迁到他爱子的国里; Jesus has rescued us just as He rescued the Israelites from the hand of the Egyptians. 主耶稣拯救了我们,正如祂拯救以色列人脱离埃及。The Israelites were held as slaves in the land of Egypt, 以色列人在埃及为奴的时候,where they worried about their daily life, 他们为日常生活而忧虑,and they had painful memories, 他们有痛苦的记忆,because they were abused and robbed by the kingdom of darkness. 因他们被黑暗国度欺压掳掠。

 

Fear of not having enough seized their hearts, 怕不够的恐惧捆住他们的心,so they hardly trusted in God’s provision. 使他们无法相信神会供应。In the same way, we also don’t like to pray for ‘daily’ supply, 同样,我们也不喜欢每天为今日的需求祷告,we wanna pray once for ‘all’ that we need. 我们喜欢一次祷告搞定全部。Last Thursday, 上周四,a sister from zoom said to me, zoom上一个姊妹说,“After you had led me to the prayer, 上次你带我祷告后,my son could talk and take care of himself like a normal person, 我儿子就正常了,又能说话,又能照顾自己,but it only lasted two days, 但就只管了两天,now he’s been back to where he was.” 又变回老样子了.” Brothers and sisters, 弟兄姊妹,we can't live on yesterday's manna, 我们不能靠昨日的吗哪过日子,we can’t rely on one prayer to fix all our problems. 一个祷告不能解决我们所有问题。It doesn’t work. 这不管用,Jesus teaches us to pray主耶稣教导我们祷告 “Give us today our daily bread.” 我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。It means we’ve gotta rely on God every day, every hour, very moment,这意味着,我们当依赖神的供应,每天每时每刻 so that we may see His provision every day, every hour, every moment. 因此我们能看见祂每时每刻每天的供应 then, we may grow in the knowledge of God through our daily experience of Him也因此在认识神上借我们的每日经历而成长。

 

Last Sunday, Andrew and Steve discussed the care of creation in上周主日,AndrewSteve谈到对万有的保守看顾 Leviticus 25:1-7: The Lord said to Moses at Mount Sinai, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a sabbath to the Lord. 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. 4 But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. 6 Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you—for yourself, your male and female servants, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you, 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten. 耶和华在西奈山对摩西说: 2 「你晓谕以色列人说:你们到了我所赐你们那地的时候,地就要向耶和华守安息。 3 六年要耕种田地,也要修理葡萄园,收藏地的出产 4 第七年,地要守圣安息,就是向耶和华守的安息,不可耕种田地,也不可修理葡萄园。 5 遗落自长的庄稼不可收割;没有修理的葡萄树也不可摘取葡萄。这年,地要守圣安息。 6 地在安息年所出的,要给你和你的仆人、婢女、雇工人,并寄居的外人当食物。 7 这年的土产也要给你的牲畜和你地上的走兽当食物。」(Lev 25:1-7 Today, we’ll examine these verses in the matter of giving us today our daily bread. 今天,我们基于日用饮食的事再来查考这段经文。Here, God set commands about the sabbath, 神在这里设立关于安息的诫命,not only a sabbath day for man, 不单有给人的安息日,but also a sabbath year for the land. 也有给地的安息年。Was God more concerned for the land than people? 神关心土地胜过关心人吗?No, God is concerned more about people than everything else, 不,神关心人胜过一切别的事物,that’s why He sent His Son Christ to be sacrificed for our sins.因此祂赐下基督神儿子为我们的罪舍命。Jesus corrected the Pharisees who misunderstood God’s law, 主耶稣纠正了法利赛人对神律法的错误认识“The sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. 「安息日是为人设立的,人不是为安息日设立的。(Mark 2:27” The sabbath is made for man to trust and rest in God. 安息日和安息年是为让人因信神得安息而设立,It isn’t made to threaten people and keep them living under fear. 不是为了吓唬人让人活在害怕里而设,It’s all about trusting in God and being set free from burdens. 它全然是为使人信靠神、以至于从劳苦重担中得着释放。

 

In this passage, 在这段经文里,‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, 你们到了我所赐你们那地的时候,  It indicates that God is sovereign, 这话显明了神的主权,He is the owner of the land. 神是那片土地的主。“the Land is Mine, 这地是我的,I’m going to give it to you…” 我要赐给你……”The Sabbath of the land every seventh year was to remind the people of Israel 土地得享七年一次的安息年,是要提醒以色列民,that God is the owner of the land, 神才是这地的主,and they needed to trust in His provision from the land.他们当信靠神从土地得供应。

 

For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. 六年要耕种田地,也要修理葡萄园,收藏地的出产。The sowing of seed is for a crop. 撒种是为了有收成,The reaping of a crop is for one’s daily bread. 有收成就有日用饮食。For six years it seemed they had enough daily bread, 看起来以色列民前六年都会有足够的日用饮食,but in the seventh year, 但到了第七年,they weren’t allowed to sow, 他们就不允许耕种了,so they would have nothing to reap. 不耕种就没收成。However, God said this, 然而,神这样说,Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you (singular), —for yourself, your singular) male and female servants, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you (singular), 7 as well as for your (singular) livestock and the wild animals in your (singular) land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten.’ 地在安息年所出的,要给你(单数)你(单数)的仆人、婢女、雇工人,并寄居的外人当食物。 7 这年的土产也要给你(单数)的牲畜和你(单数)地上的走兽当食物。」 This word ‘you’ refers to an individual person. 这里的是单数,It provokes us to think, 这就引发我们思考,who is the real owner of the land? 谁是这地的主人?If you were the owner of the land, 你若是这地的主人,and if you didn’t sow, 你若不耕种,you would absolutely not reap anything, 你当然什么收成也不会有,then, you would suffer starvation. 你就要挨饿了。But here, 但在这里,as if God was saying, 神好像在说,“Rest in Me, 安息在我里面,during the seventh year, 在第七年,I’ll give you, and all your people, and all your animals in your land with sufficient food我会赐你和你的人,你地其上的动物足够的食物, you don’t worry about what to eat你不需要忧虑吃什么(Levi 2520-22)  Whoa, that’s risky! 哇,那可太冒险了!

 

But God is sovereign! 但神掌权!Jesus is the Creator, 主耶稣是创造主,the owner of All. 万有的主人。Everything in heaven and on earth and below the earth belongs to Him and listens to Him, 天上的、地上的、地底下的都属于祂、听从祂,except man. 只除了人不听从祂。The Israelites failed to listen. 以色列民没有听从神,Now it’s our turn to step into the spotlight! 现在轮到我们上场了!Jesus said, 主耶稣说,“Don’t worry! 不要忧虑!You’ve entered another Kingdom, the Kingdom of God.” 你们已经进入另一个国度,神的国度。

 

But the world tells us, 这世界告诉我们说,“Worry! Let’s worry! There are so many things to worry about.” “忧虑!来忧虑!有许许多多可忧虑的事。” During the week I talked with Johnny about the new one-off residency visa policy that NZ immigration office has just implemented. 这周我和Johnny谈起新西兰移民局最近推出的一次性居民签证。Johnny said, “I’m worried about whether we’re eligible.” Johnny说,我担心我们不合资格。I said, “Have you met the criteria?” 我问:你们符合申请标准吗?I showed him the criteria. 我给他看了申请标准,Then he said, “oh, yes, we’re in. But I’m still worried.” 他就说:哦,看着合格,但我还是忧虑。I said, “hi, it’s being handed to you on a plate, believe me.” 我说,嘿,这是白送给你的,相信我。“Oh, it’s hard to believe. It’s too good to be true...” 哦,太难以置信了,好得让人不能信…”This is like the good news of the Kingdom, 这就像天国的福音,it’s too good to be true. 好得让人不能信。But we must listen to the truth!但我们必须听从真理!

 

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. 不要效法这个世界,只要心意更新而变化,叫你们察验何为神的善良、纯全、可喜悦的旨意。(Rom12:2In other words, 换句话说,don’t concern about what the world is concerned about, 不要担忧世界正在担忧的事,don’t worry about what the world is worrying about, 不要忧虑世界正在忧虑的事,but seek to be transformed by the renewing of your mind by trusting in God’s promises, 而要藉着信靠神的应许,追求心意更新而变化So we’ve gotta pray for our mind, your thoughts, your attitude to be in line with Jesus’, 所以 我们当祷告叫我们的心思意念态度和耶稣一致,and pray to push back every worrying thought, and cast all your anxieties on God for He cares for you. 并祷告赶出每个忧虑思想,将一切的忧虑卸给神,因为他顾念你。(1Peter彼前5:7

 

3, Pray against fear.  祷告除去惧怕。

 

From the beginning to the end of Jesus’ ministry, 主耶稣在祂从始至终的服事中,He was talking about God’s Kingdom. 一直谈论的都是神国度的事。Jesus preached about it, 耶稣传讲神的国、He demonstrated it, 演示神的国, and He taught how to live in it. 并教导人如何活在其中。“Don’t worry” Jesus said,  “不要忧虑,耶稣说: “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “你们要先求他的国和他的义,这些东西都要加给你们了。Matt6:33 When we talk about a Kingdom, 当我们谈论一个”,  it refers to a King’s rule over a territory to govern people. 是指一个国王统治一片领土,管理其上的国民。It’s not like a democratic country, 这并不像一个民主政体国家,where we can vote. 国民可以参与投票表决。No, this is a Kingdom where the King rules over everything. 不,在这个国里,国王统管一切。 In Mark 9 when Jesus was transfigured on the high mountain, 马可福音9章里当耶稣在山上变了形像,the disciples were told, 有声音对门徒说:“This is my Son, listen to him." “这是我的爱子,你们要听他。” In this Kingdom, 在这个国里,the King’s commands are obeyed, 国王的命令需要被服从, and His power is sovereign over all. 祂的权柄是至高无上的。

 

Do you remember Nebuchadnezzar, great king of Babylon? 还记得伟大的巴比伦国王尼布甲尼撒吗? When he was proud of himself, 当他自傲地说: “the great Babylon I have built.” “我建造的这大巴比伦…” God drove him into the desert, 神就把他赶到野地,he lost his sense of being human. 使他成了疯子。 But that wasn’t the end of the story, 但这并不是事件的结局, the story ended up with him acknowledging and praising God’s sovereignty: 结局是他最终承认并称颂神的主权:“I , Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.” 我-尼布甲尼撒举目望天,我的聪明复归于我,我便称颂至高者,赞美尊敬活到永远的神。 他的权柄是永有的; 他的国存到万代。Dan4:34God made the great King on earth know 神让地上大有权势的国王知道,it’s not that the earth rules but heaven rules. 一切不是地上掌权,乃是天上掌权。So don’t worry about any earthly needs. 所以不要为地上的日用所需忧虑。We’re Kingdom people. 我们是神国的子民。We’ve gotta learn from the Word of God how to position ourselves, 当从神的话语中学习如何摆正自己的位置,and pray to put the ways of God first, 祷告把神的道放在首位,cast out the lies of the enemy of our heart, 弃绝心中仇敌的谎言,and allow God to be the Only one to fear in our lives.  让神成为我们生命中唯一敬畏的那一位。and develop our relationship with the King in Heaven; 与天上的王建立好关系; We’ve gotta seek Jesus’ rule in our lives, 我们需要寻求让耶稣在我们生命中掌权,so that the blessings of God may come into our lives and our families, 让神的祝福进入我们的生命和家庭,and may flow through us to the people around us. 也藉我们传递给身边的人。


Now we’re at the end of the second year of the pandemic, 现在已进入疫情第二年的尾声了,in the beginning when the virus came, 当病毒刚开始的时候, people were afraid of the virus, 人们惧怕病毒,many feared losing their jobs, 很多人惧怕失去工作, some feared losing their freedom, 有人惧怕失去自由,others feared economic collapse. 还有人担心经济崩溃。For most of this second year, 在疫情第二年的大部分时间里,lockdown seemed to have worked well, 封锁似乎很有效果,people in NZ enjoyed a moment of peace.  新西兰人享受了片刻安宁。

 

But, dig down deeper, 但是,再挖深一点,why did we feel peaceful at that time when the situation seemed to under control? 为什么当局势似乎可控时,我们就感到平安呢? Where were we placing our trust? 我们真正信靠的是什么?Could that peace be false peace? 那平安是不是虚假的平安? Because we think ‘we’re still in charge. 因为觉得局势还在我们的控制中,We’ve managed it well.” 我们处理得很好。” It’s all about control. 一切都和掌控有关。 What’s God’s will for us at that moment?  而那一刻,神对我们的旨意是什么呢?   Have we captured God’s will? 我们是否领受了神的旨意? Last Sunday night, 上周日晚上, I started to inquire of God what would happen next year, 我开始求问神明年会有怎样的带领, which I usually do at the end of every year, 通常我在每年年末都会求问神,and God has always been faithful. 神总是信实的。

 

On Monday morning, 星期一早上, after I had just woken up, 我刚醒来,a verse came into my heart,  一节经文进入我的心: “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” 虽有千人仆倒在你旁边, 万人仆倒在你右边, 这灾却不得临近你。(Psa诗篇 91:7)  I quickly grabbed my bible and turned it to Psa 91, 我急忙拿起圣经翻到诗篇91 I realised that  God was telling me 我领受神在告诉我,NZ would go into another season to live with the virus, 新西兰即将进入一个与病毒共存的阶段,(that was confirmed from the News that afternoon). (这从那天下午的新闻中也得到了证实)Then, although people are fully vaccinated, 这样,虽然人们都接种了疫苗,they can still get the virus. 他们仍可能感染病毒。Vaccination is not a guarantee of immunity, 接种疫苗并不能保证免疫, although we must get full vaccinated尽管我们必须要打疫苗, and we’ve done it我们也全打了. it still can fail to protect us. 但它仍会保护不了我们。 Where is our refuge? 我们的避难所在哪里呢? Who shall we trust? 我们当信靠谁? Why has ‘a nice’ God allowed this to happen to ‘nice’ people? 为什么良善的神允许这样的事发生在善良的人身上? Do you fear losing control?  你惧怕失控吗?

 

God allowing Nebuchadnezzar to lose control over his life神让尼布甲尼撒对他的生命失控, was not to harm him, 并不是要伤害他, but to humble him, 而是要使他谦卑,so he would raise his eyes 所以他举目望天,to see that Heaven reigns (Daniel 4:26). 看见天上掌权(但以理书4:26) During this time of pandemic, 在这瘟疫流行的时期,we’re reminded that Jesus said this: 我们被提醒耶稣所说的话:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32. 你们这小群,不要惧怕,因为你们的父乐意把国赐给你们。(Luk12:32We’ve gotta raise our eyes to Heaven! 我们当举目望天!Heaven reigns! 天上掌权! Fear not! 不要惧怕!

 

Is it possible that you lose your job? 你可能会失业吗? Is it possible that you face hardship in this life? 你生活中可能遇到难处吗?  It’s just a part of God’s meaningful plan for us这不过是神美好计划的一部分, to raise our eyes towards Him为让我们要举目望祂, and to mature us in Christ并使我们在基督里成熟长大。We’re kingdom people!  我们是神国的子民! God alone is terrifying in His Glory, 惟有神在祂的荣耀里是可畏的,He rules in righteousness and justice, 祂以公义公平治理一切,and He has sufficient grace for all who repent continuously and call on His name, 祂有足够的恩典给一切持续的悔改,并求告祂名的人,and He will show us His glory! 祂必向我们显明祂的荣耀!“Father, You alone are the God who loves us. 父啊,惟有你是爱我们的神。You alone are the bread of life that comes down from Heaven for us. 惟有你从天上降下赐给我们生命的粮。Increase our faith, 愿你加增我们的信心, decrease our fear, 除去我们的惧怕,give us today our ‘daily bread’.” 我们日用的‘饮食’,今日赐给我们。

 

 

Concluding prayer: 结束祷告:

 

Yes Lord, 是的主啊, Your Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, 你的国是永远的, and Your dominion endures from generation to generation! 你的权柄存到万代!Jesus, You are the Most High 耶稣,你是至高者,who is sovereign over the Kingdoms of men. 你在人的国中掌权。Jesus, You’re the bread of life, 耶稣,你是生命的粮, that came down from Heaven to give us life. 你从天降下赐给我们生命。And everything we need for this life is in You. 我们今生所需用的一切都在你里面。We thank You for Your grace, 我们感谢祢的恩典, Your truth, 感谢祢的真理,Your presence with us. 感谢祢与我们同在。

 

Let’s thank Him, 让我们来感谢他,open our mouths with our eyes closed, 让我们闭上眼睛,开口 to thank Him with all our hearts. 用全心来感谢祂。Thank Him for His provision; 感谢祂一切的供应; thank Him for being your Shepherd; 感谢祂作你的牧者; thank Him for including you to be part of His Kingdom; 感谢祂接纳你成为祂国度的一份子;thank Him for His sacrificial love on the Cross, 感谢祂在十架上牺牲的爱,to bring you back from the kingdom of darkness; 把你从黑暗的国度带回来; Thank Him for feeding you with His truth…感谢祂以真理喂养你…just thank Him, 只要感谢祂,count the good things Jesus has done in your life 数算耶稣在你生命中所行一切美好的事,whether you see or you don’t see不论看见的和没有看见的and give Him thanks, 感谢祂, let your heart be filled with gratitude!...让你的心充满感恩!

 

Tell Him your life belongs to Him the Source of life, 告诉祂你的生命属于祂这位生命的源头,but why is there disappointment, depression, heaviness, fear, and worry in your heart? 为什么你心里有失望、沮丧、重担、惧怕和忧虑呢?You’re not under the influence of that spirit, 你不是在那灵的掌管下。Cry out to the Lord, 对主说:“Forgive me for allowing myself to listen to lies, 赦免我让自己听信了谎言,such as, 比如:“They would be happy with me if I did this…he would love me if I did that…” ‘如果我做了这个他们就会喜欢我如果我做了那个他就会爱我…’

 

Forgive me for putting man first before God, 赦免我把人放在神之前,and allowing myself to be a victim of the manipulative power of the evil one, 让自己成了被恶者操控的受害者,which caused me to fear and worry a lot. 使我陷入各样的惧怕和忧虑。Your truth says, 你的真理说: “Man doesn’t live on bread alone, “人活着不是单靠食物,but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.” 乃是靠神口里所出的一切话。
