7月26日靈修禱文

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

Psalm 5:11-12

Thought

David prayed to God in the form of a psalm here. In these last two verses, he said that all who took refuge in God would rejoice. It is because God always gives promises to those who belong to him. Here, it was not said that all who took refuge in God would certainly get everything he wanted. The reason people who belong to God rejoice is that they have a close relationship with him. The relationship is established because God loved us first, unconditionally, by sending his son Jesus to die on the cross for us. So we have to draw close to him too, by loving him with all our hearts, all our souls and all our minds.

Prayer

Thank Father God for giving us a new life, so that we were born again and saved. May Lord Jesus help us and give us strength to love God, to learn his word, to listen to the Holy Spirit's voice, so as to be true disciples who bear their crosses. Amen.
Pastor Ivan Loo

凡投靠你的,願他們喜樂,時常歡呼, 因為你庇護他們; 又願那愛你名的人都靠你歡欣。 耶和華啊,因為你必賜福給義人, 你必用恩惠如同盾牌四面護衛他。

詩篇 5:11-12

思想

大衛在這裡以詩歌去求告上帝,在最後兩節講出凡去投靠上帝的,必然喜樂歡呼,原因是上帝永遠對屬祂的子民有應許。這裡並沒有說成投靠上帝的就必然萬事亨通,心想事成。屬神的子民歡喜快樂是建基於與上帝的親密關係,而這種關係是上帝先我我們,是無條件的,是靠著主耶穌在十架上的犧牲而建立的。所以我們亦要盡心、盡性、盡意去愛上帝,和祂建立親密關係。

禱告

感謝父神,賜給我們一個新生命,以至我們能重生得救。求主耶穌幫助我們能有力量去親上帝,去學習祂的話語,聆聽聖靈的聲音,做個真正背上十架的門徒。阿門
