7月3日靈修禱文

Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plumb line; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the shelter.”

Isaiah 28:16-17

Thought

Although God used the neighboring nations to punish the Israelites because of their disobedience, here He still set up His foundation in Israel, to administer His justice. The standard was not according to human perspectives or laws. God's cornerstone was the foundation, and His measuring line and plumb line were the standard. Not any lies could be hidden before Him. When people of this world think that their set of views is justice and impose it on others, the opposite results may happen. It's not difficult to understand God's justice. The most difficult thing is to apply God's standard on oneself.

Prayer

Thank God for His saving grace so that we are justified by faith. We are so ignorant as to put our standard first. May God have mercy on us. May the Holy Spirit lead us back to God's standard of justice. Amen.

所以,主耶和華如此說: 「看哪,我在 錫安 放一塊石頭作為根基, 是衡量的石頭, 是寶貴的房角石,穩固的根基; 信靠他的人必不致驚恐。 我以公平為準繩, 以公義為鉛垂線; 冰雹必沖去謊言的避難所, 大水必漫過藏身之處。」

以賽亞書 28:16-17

思想

雖然以色列人的不順從,以至上帝用周圍的民族去懲罰他們,但在這裡上帝還是最終要在以色列人當中設立祂的基礎,行使上帝的公義。這些不是以人的角度或法律去作為準則,而是以上帝的房角石為根基,以上帝的準繩、鉛垂線鎔為原則,沒有任何的謊言可以躲避上帝。當世人以為自已的那一套便是公義,以至加在其他人身上,可能弄巧反拙。去理解上帝的公義並不困難,最困難的是內上帝的準則放在自已之上。

禱告

感謝神賜救贖的恩典,以至我們因信稱義。求神憐憫我們的無知,以至將自已的準則放在最前,求聖靈引導我們重反上帝公義的準則。阿門。
