6/24/20 往神話語的道上直奔

Run In the Path of God’s Word

Psalm 119:32 I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!

詩篇 119:32 你使我心胸開闊的時候,我就往你命令的道路直奔.

Psalm 119 is the longest chapter of the longest book in the Bible, the Psalms. In the 176 verses of this Psalm, the author uses many terms to describe the importance of the Word of God and tells us what do. We live at a time of famine regarding God’s Word. Even God’s people find that our “heart’s warehouse” is empty and therefore we often sin against God. May God “enlarge [our] heart” and increase our desire and appetite for the Word of God as He did for  Solomon. May we see that God’s truth covers every area of our lives! “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore.” (1 King 4:29) This is not a time to sit and lay back, but it is time to “run in the way of [God’s] commandments”. We are in the last quarter of the “ball game”; no matter how tired and exhausted we are, we need to run with all our strength. “Let us press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus ” (Philippians 3:14) 

詩篇119篇是聖經中最長的書-詩篇中最長的一章。 在《詩篇》的176節經文中,作者使用了許多詞語來描述上帝的話語的重要,並告訴我們該如何行。 我們生活在關於神的話語的飢荒時期。 甚至上帝的子民也發現我們的“心的倉庫”是空的,因此我們經常得罪神。(11 節) 願上帝像祂為所羅門所做的那樣,“擴大我們的心”並增加我們對上帝聖言的渴望和食慾且看到上帝的真理覆蓋了我們生活的每個層面! “神賜給所羅門極大的智慧和聰明,以及寬闊的心,如同海邊的沙。” (列王紀上 4:29)這不是坐下和躺下的時間,而是往“「上帝」命令的道路直奔”的時候。 我們現在處於“球類比賽”的最後一節,無論我們多麼疲憊和勞累,都需要全力以赴。 “向着標竿直跑,要得 神在基督耶穌裏從上面召我來得的獎賞”(腓立比書3:14)
