神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:凡事交托(2019.2.22)

当将你的事交托耶和华,并倚靠他,他就必成全。诗37:5

小婴儿因饥饿哭闹时,不会因为你给他个拨浪鼓就满足。他会一直哭闹,直到你提供食物让他吃的满意。同样,我们灵里饥饿时,也不是一般的食物能满足,除了上帝的话语。诗人大卫这样描述人灵里的饥渴:我的心切慕你,如鹿切慕溪水(诗42:1)。人的内心经常有不同的力量在争战。当你有犹豫和怀疑时,信心就软弱了。恨占了上风,爱就没有余地了;自私的念头一起,你的心中就没有别人了;烦恼充满了,信任就没有了。

同样,上帝在我们的心中占绝对的主导地位,不允许任何事物和任何人分享。今天,你心中有没有比上帝更重要的事情和人?不要让任何事情取代基督在你心里的位置,一切交托、倚靠。

Trust Crowds Out Worry 

Commit your way to the LORD . . .

And He shall bring it to pass.

Psalm 37:5

You cannot stop a baby’s cry by giving him a rattle when he is hungry. He will keep on crying until his hunger is satisfied by the food his little body demands. Neither can the soul of a mature person be satisfied apart from God. David described the hunger of every human being when he said: “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God” (Ps. 42:1).

Two conflicting forces cannot exist in one human heart. When doubt reigns, faith cannot abide. Where hatred rules, love is crowded out. Where selfishness rules, there love cannot dwell. When worry is present trust cannot crowd its way in.

In the same way, God will not share His rightful place in our lives with anything or anyone less then Himself. Is anything crowding God out of your heart today? Don’t give first place to anything less than Christ, but “commit your way to the LORD.”
