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:神同在的平安​(2019.11.20)

你不要害怕,因为我与你同在;不要惊惶,因为我是你的上帝。赛41:10

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. Isaiah 41:10

每当我默想在苦难中有上帝的信实,我就会想到我的一个好朋友Corrie ten Boom,一个来自荷兰的勇敢的姊妹。她在二战期间,掩藏了一些犹太人,不让他们受到纳粹的迫害。也因此,她被关进了Ravensbruk纳粹集中营。后来,这位姊妹在世界各地作主的见证,如何有苦难,如何饶恕,如何喜乐。三十五年之久,这位姊妹从来没有一个固定的居所。直到她八十五岁的时候,身体健康状况不好,她的朋友们在加州为她提供了一个可爱的小房子。她自己做梦也没有想过这个房子。一天,著名导演James Collier来看望她,并对她说,上帝真是对你不错啊,这房子很漂亮!她回答说:即便在集中营,上帝对我也很不错!

很多人不可能有Corrie ten Boom姊妹的可怕的经历。但是,不管我们遇到怎样的困难,请记住:你不要害怕,因为我与你同在;不要惊惶,因为我是你的上帝。

Whenever I think of God’s faithfulness in the midst of suffering I am reminded of my dear late friend Corrie ten Boom, the remarkable Dutch woman who (with her family) hid Jews from the Nazis. After being imprisoned in Ravensbruk, the infamous concentration camp, Corrie traveled the world telling her story of suffering, forgiveness, and joy.

For thirty-five years she never had a permanent home, but when she was eighty-five and in declining health, some friends provided her with a lovely house in California. It was a luxury she never dreamed she would have (and one she never would have pursued on her own).

One day her friend, the late movie director James Collier, was visiting. He said, “Corrie, hasn’t God been good to give you this beautiful house?”

She replied firmly, “Jimmy, God was good when I was in Ravenbruk too!”

Most of us will never experience the horrors Corrie knew. But not matter what we face; we can depend on God’s promise: “Fear not; for I am with you.”
