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:上帝不会迟到​(2019.10.28)

保护你的是耶和华;耶和华在你的右边荫庇你。诗篇121:5

The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your right hand. Psalm 121:5

一棵树或者一个植物,如果要成长和结果实,就必须先被埋在土里。如果我们希望在灵里不断成长和结果子,我们也必须先被栽植于上帝的话语中,并先死去自我。当我们面临各种折磨、各种敌对、各种烦恼、各种诱惑的时候,上帝的话语就来浇灌我们,让我们成长并结果子。但是,这不是一夜之谈,而是需要时间和耐心。

如果不是他兄弟们恨他,把他卖到埃及做奴隶;如果不是波提乏诬陷他,把他送进监狱,约瑟可能永远也不会为上帝所器用(圣经《创世记》)。即便后来,约瑟跟酒政(得罪法老而入监的)说,“我帮了你,你官复原职后,不要忘记我,跟法老说,我是冤枉的。 ”,约瑟等了两年,酒政才想起他(因为要为法老解梦)。

在我们静候上帝的时候,他不见得每次都及时来帮助我们,但是他一定也不会太晚。他的时间,一定是最好的。

In order for a tree or any plant to grow and bear fruit, its seed must first be planted in the ground and die. In order for spiritual fruit to appear in our lives, we must first be planted in the ground and die. In order for spiritual to appear in our lives, we must first be planted in the Word of God and then die to self. In the face of chastening, adversity, discipline, and affliction, God’s word nourishes our lives and fruit begins to appear. But it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and patience.

Joseph would never have been of use to God had he not been sold into slavery by brothers who hated him, and then wrongly accused by Potiphar, who put him in prison. Even after he had told Pharos’ cupbearer   he would be restored to the King’s court and asked him to tell Pharaoh of his unjust imprisonment, Joseph had to wait two more years for release from prison.

As we wait upon the Lord, He may sometimes seem slow in coming to help us. But He never comes too late. His timing is always perfect.
