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:安然入睡​(2019.11.18)

我必安然躺下睡觉,因为独有你- 耶和华使我安然居住。诗4:8

I will . . . lie down in peace. . . for you alone . . .make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

如今,人们对药物和酒精的过度依赖已经成为一个问题。这不仅仅说的是违禁的药品,很多人去商店里买酒买药,都是为了应付新的一天,或者求得一个可以安然入睡的夜晚。我不是一个医生,我也承认药物的重要性,如果遵照医嘱服用。但是,我也不幸地发现,很多人宁愿依赖药物和酒精,而不原意依赖上帝。他们没有选择面对问题和靠着上帝解决问题,而是选择了靠药物和酒精来逃避。这样是行不通的,而且只能让事情变得更糟。难怪箴言书要说“酒发红,在杯中闪烁,你不可观看,虽然下咽舒畅,终究是咬你如蛇,刺你如毒蛇。”(箴言2332

不可用任何事情来取代上帝。他爱你,愿意给你带来平安 信靠他带来的平安。耶稣对众人说的是真的:我使你们得安息。 (太1128

By any measure drug and alcohol dependence has become one of our greatest social problems. The issue isn’t just illegal drugs; many depend on alcohol or over-the-counter or prescription drugs just to face each day or to get to sleep at night.

I’m not a doctor, of course, and I fully realize some drugs have a legitimate place under carful medical supervision. But in my experience far too many people turn first to drugs or alcohol instead of to God. Rather than face their problems and deal with them (with God’s help), they use drugs or alcohol to escape.

But such “solutions” never work, and in fact only make things worse. No wonder the book of Proverbs warns that alcohol “at the last . . . bites like a serpent, and stings live a viper” (Prov. 23:32).

Don’t let anything substitute for God. He loves you, and He wants to give you peace-the peace that comes from knowing Him. Jesus’ promise to His followers is true: “I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).
