属灵低潮

"但我们素来所盼望要赎以色列民的,就是他。不但如此,而且这事成就,现在已经三天了。"(路 24:21)

门徒说的每一件事都是对的,但他们从事实中得出的结论却是错的。在属灵的事上只要有一丁点失望的情绪都是不对的。如果我感到失望和沮丧,正是我自己应该被责备,而不是上帝或者其他的人。低潮的起因有二:或者我使自己的欲念得到了满足,或者没有使它得到满足。欲念的意思是"我必须现在就得到它。"属灵方面的欲念驱使我向上帝要求答案,而不是给我们答案的上帝自身。我希望或者信任神会成就什麽呢?今天是"第三天"而他还没有成就我所期待的吗?我因此就可以坦然地对神表示失望或者责备他吗?无论什麽时候,如果我们坚持上帝一定要应允我们的祷告,我们就完全错了。祷告的目的是抓住神,而不是抓住答案。一个人健康的人,身体不可能萎靡不振,因为萎靡不振是不健康的表现。这在灵性世界里也是这样。灵性低潮是不对的, 我们也只能责备自己。

我们靠寻找天上来的异象和使大地震动的神迹来证明神的大能。我们感到失望和沮丧这个事实本身就证明我们在这样做。但是我们却从没有意识到神一直在我们每天的生活和我们周围的人群中作工。只要我们顺服,作他要我们作的事情,我们就能看见他。上帝给我们最大的启示之一,是我们学到在自己日常生活中领受耶稣基督伟大的神性。

 

 

 

THE DISCIPLINE OF DEJECTION

 

 

"But we trusted . . . and beside all this, to-day is the third day . . ." Luke 24:21

Every fact that the disciples stated was right; but the inferences they drew from those facts were wrong. Anything that savours of dejection spiritually is always wrong. If depression and oppression visit me, I am to blame; God is not, nor is anyone else. Dejection springs from one of two sources - I have either satisfied a lust or I have not. Lust means - I must have it at once. Spiritual lust makes me demand an answer from God, instead of seeking God Who gives the answer. What have I been trusting God would do? And to-day - the immediate present - is the third day, and He has not done it; therefore I imagine I am justified in being dejected and in blaming God. Whenever the insistence is on the point that God answers prayer, we are off the track. The meaning of prayer is that we get hold of God, not of the answer. It is impossible to be well physically and to be dejected. Dejection is a sign of sickness, and the same thing is true spiritually. Dejection spiritually is wrong, and we are always to blame for it.

We look for visions from heaven, for earthquakes and thunders of God's power (the fact that we are dejected proves that we do), and we never dream that all the time God is in the commonplace things and people around us. If we will do the duty that lies nearest, we shall see Him. One of the most amazing revelations of God comes when we learn that it is in the commonplace things that the Deity of Jesus Christ is realized.
