《荒漠甘泉》2月5日


  “你们出来必不至急忙。”(赛五十二:12)

  
我不相信,我们已经了解在安静中的奇妙的能力了。我们常太急躁——我们自己一定要去作——不给神一个机会彰显他的荣耀。因此,神常对我们说,“站住。”(出十四:13),“安坐。”(路三:18),“住了罢;静了罢“(可四:39),他才可以发挥他的全能。

  在我们基督徒的生活中,我们的失败常是因为我们要自己工作得胜;其实,我们需要让神在我们里面工作。当你请一个摄影师替你照相的时候,你必须安静不动,完全让他作。

  神对于我们有一个永久的目的,就是要我们象他的儿子;如果要达成这个目的,我们必须处在被动的地位,关于如何主动,我们听得太多了,也许我们更需要了解安静的意义。
 
 
 
Streams In the Desert for Feb. 6
 

“He turned the sea into dry land; they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.” (Paslm 66:6.)

 

It is a striking assertion, “through the floods” (the place where we might have expected nothing but trembling and terror, anguish and dismay) “there,” says the Psalmist, “did we rejoice in him!”

 

How many there are who can endorse this as their experience: that “There,” in their very seasons of distress and sadness, they have been enabled, as they never did before, to triumph and rejoice.

 

How near their God in covenant is brought! How brightly shine His promises! In the day of our prosperity we cannot see the brilliancy of these. Like the3 sun at noon, hiding out the stars from sight, they are indiscernible; but when night overtakes, the deep, dark night of sorrow, out come these clustering stars-blessed constellations of Bible hoope and promise of consolation.

 

Like Jacob at Jabbok, it is when our earthly sun goes down that the Divine Angel comes forth, and we wrestle with Him and prevail.

It was at night, “in the evening,” Aaron lit the sanctuary lamps, It is in the night of trouble the brightest lamps of the believer are often kindled.

 

It was in his loneliness and exile John had the glorious vision of his Redeemer. There is many a Patmos still in the world, whose brightest remembrances are those of God’s pressence and upholding grace and love in solitude and sadness.

 

How many pilgrims, still passing through these Red Seas and Jordans of earthly affliction, will be enabled in the retrospect of eternity to say-full of the memories of God’s great goodness-“We went through the flood on foot, there-there, in these dark experiences, with the surging waves on every side, deep calling to deep, Jordan, as when Israel crossed it, in ‘the time of the overflowing’ (flood), yet, ‘there did we rejoice in Him!’” --- Dr. Macduff.

 

“And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the door of trouble for a door of hope: and she shall sing THERE.” (Hosea 2:15.)
