中文灵修:上帝——和平的缔造者

“坚心倚赖你的,你必保守他十分平安,因为他倚靠你。”(赛26:3)

作为一个个体的人,你当然有一个自我意识。但这并不意味着你应该崇拜自己、不断的为自己考虑、完全为自己而活。常识告诉你,如果你遵循这条道路,你的生活会很凄惨。神比你自己更关心你的幸福。神说,"舍己,来跟从我。”今天在精神病院里有许多人过分为自己着想,排斥上帝和其他人。无病呻吟的人对自己的健康都有杞人忧天的焦虑,不论他们的身体状况如何,永远都不会好起来。

今日祷告:
主啊,保守我的心仰望你。帮助我克服我自私的想法,因为它会把平安从我心里挤出去。
主耶稣基督的圣名,阿们!

Daily Devotion:God the Peacekeeper

He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord!—Isaiah 26:3 (TLB)

You have an ego-a consciousness of being an individual. Of course, you do. But that doesn’t mean that you are to worship yourself, to think constantly of yourself, and to live entirely for yourself. Common sense tells you that your life would be miserable if you followed that course. God is infinitely more concerned about your happiness than you could possibly be. He says, “Deny yourself, and follow me.” There is many a person in the insane asylum today who thought excessively about himself, to the exclusion of God and others. Hypochondriacs who have a fanciful anxiety about their health will never be well, regardless of their physical condition.

Prayer for the day:
Keep my mind on You, Lord, and help me to discipline the thoughts of self which crowd out Your peace..
In Jesus' name, Amen!
