    下垂的手、发酸的腿

    经文: “所以你们要把下垂的手,发酸的腿,挺起来。也要为自己的脚把道路修直了,使瘸子不至歪脚,反得痊愈。”(来十二12~13)



            这是上帝激励我们的话,叫我们挺起信心的手和祷告的腿来。我们的信心时常会疲惫、衰弱、疏懈;我们的祷告时常会失了能力和功效。

            这节圣经真有能力,它似乎看出我们已经气馁,已经胆怯了──一点极小的试炼就会使我们沮丧,使我们惊骇;我们就会绕道而行,不敢面对面去对抗;我们会选择一条比较容易的路去走。

            也许今天你身体上有一点疾病,上帝原预备亲自医治你的;可是你却去找些人的救助,施用些人的方法,结果并未好些。

            我们时常会用很多方法去逃避试炼,当我们遇到了使我们为难的环境,多少次我们总是用“我现在还没有准备好”来推脱,来闪避。啊!有多少需要我们牺牲的时候,需要我们顺服的时候,需要夺取耶利哥的时候,需要勇气去带领失丧的灵魂的时候,需要祷告的时候,或者当我们的疾病,上帝已经医治了一半的时候,我却绕道而行──拣选了别条路。

            上帝说:“你们要把下垂的手…挺起来。”一直向大水走去,看啊,水便分开,红海成了干地,约但河立起成垒;不要惧怕,上帝自会带领你进入胜利的。

            不要任你自己“歪着脚”,快来“得痊愈”。啊!让你的信心坚强起来!一直向前走去!不要遗留一座耶利哥不被攻破!不要留一点破口任撒但向你夸口!这真是一课有益而实用的功课。多少时候我们的灵会这样冷落下来。也许你今天就是这样。──信宣(A. B. Simpson)

            不要去注意那些使你气馁的事情,无论你的道路是崎岖,是平坦,总当像一只轮船一样──不管雨天、晴天,依然向前行驶。因为你的责任只在装载货物按时进港。──贝伯考克(Maltbie D. babcock)

    Limp Hands and Feeble Knees

    Scripture: Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed" (Heb. 12:12-13).



            This is God's word of encouragement to us to lift up the hands of faith, and confirm the knees of prayer. Often our faith grows tired, languid, and relaxed, and our prayers lose their force and effectiveness.

            The figure used here is a very striking one. The idea seems to be that we become discouraged and so timid that a little obstacle depresses and frightens us, and we are tempted to walk around it, and not face it: to take the easier way.

            Perhaps it is some physical trouble that God is ready to heal, but the exertion is hard, or it is easier to secure some human help, or walk around in some other way.

            There are many ways of walking around emergencies instead of going straight through them. How often we come up against something that appalls us, and we want to evade the issue with the excuse:

            "I am not quite ready for that now." Some sacrifice is to be made, some obedience demanded, some Jericho to be taken, some soul that we have not the courage to claim and carry through, some prayer that is hanging fire, or perhaps some physical trouble that is half healed and we are walking around it.

            God says, "Lift up the hands that hang down." March straight through the flood, and lo, the waters will divide, the Red Sea will open, the Jordan will part, and the Lord will lead you through to victory.

            Don't let your feet "be turned out of the way," but let your body "be healed," your faith strengthened. Go right ahead and leave no Jericho behind you unconquered and no place where Satan can say that he was too much for you. This is a profitable lesson and an intensely practical one. How often have we been in that place. Perhaps you are there today. --A. B. Simpson

            Pay as little attention to discouragement as possible. Plough ahead as a steamer does, rough or smooth--rain or shine. To carry your cargo and make your port is the point. --Maltbie D. Babcock来自群组: 荒漠甘泉
