注意里面的禁止

经文: 「地震后有火……火后有微小的声音。」(王上十九12)

        有一位姊妹,在明白上帝旨意这件事上,进步得非常之快;有一次,有人问到她容易进步的秘诀。她简洁地回答道:「注意里面的禁止。」眞的,我们中间许多人不明白上帝旨意的缘故,就是因为不注意里面圣灵的禁止。圣灵的声音是微小的。一个微小的声音是不容易听见的,但是却能教你觉得──叫你心中觉得一种平稳微小的压力,好像早晨的微风吹在你脸上那样觉得。这种微小的声音,如果你好好注意它,会一次比一次更清楚,一次比一次更容易听的。当我们全心专注在爱人身上的时候,爱人一句顶轻细的耳语,我们很快地就领会了;圣灵的声音就是爱人耳语的声音。但是如果我们不回答他、不理会他、不相信他,爱人也就会不再说甚么的。上帝是爱,我们要认识祂和祂的声音,必须时常留心注意。当你与人谈话,正要发言的时候,如果里面有禁止的话,就该立即闭口不言。当你正要进行某种事业──正当的事业──的时候,如果你灵里觉得不平安的话,就该立即改变计划,虽然按照人的智慧来看,这也许是一个顶大的愚眛。
        在注意里面的禁止以外,我们还该学习等候上帝披露祂的旨意。在一切事上让上帝替你计划、替你执行。不要倚靠你自己的聪明。许多时候上帝的执行和上帝的计划似乎相反──祂似乎在反对自己;但是你只要听从、顺服信靠,虽然看上去这似乎是顶愚昧的事。至终,祂必使「万事互相効力,叫爱上帝的人得益处。」(罗八28)
        所以如果你要认识上帝的声音,你必须先有一个绝对顺服的存心──不顾结果,不顾成败。就是上帝要你在暗中前进,你也愿意顺服;因为上帝自己是你里面荣耀的光辉。这样,你就会更认识上帝、更亲近上帝;甚至在最猛烈的试炼下、可怕的压力下,你也会感到上帝的同在。──译自信心的方法(Way of Faith)

Mind The Checks

Scripture: "And after the earthquake a fire; and after the fire a sound of gentle stillness" (1 Kings 19:12, RV margin.)

        A soul, who made rapid progress in her understanding of the Lord, was once asked the secret of her easy advancement. She replied tersely, "Mind the checks." And the reason that many of us do not know and better understand Him is, we do not give heed to His gentle checks, His delicate restraints and constraints. His is a still, small voice. A still voice can hardly be heard. It must be felt. A steady, gentle pressure upon the heart and mind like the touch of a morning zephyr to your face. A small voice, quietly, almost timidly spoken in your heart, but if heeded growing noiselessly clearer to your inner ear. His voice is for the ear of love, and love is intent upon hearing even faintest whispers. There comes a time also when love ceases to speak if not responded to, or believed in. He is love, and if you would know Him and His voice, give constant ear to His gentle touches. In conversation, when about to utter some word, give heed to that gentle voice, mind the check and refrain from speech. When about to pursue some course that seems all clear and right and there comes quietly to your spirit a suggestion that has in it the force almost of a conviction, give heed, even if changed plans seem highest folly from standpoint of human wisdom. Learn also to wait on God for the unfolding of His will. Let God form your plans about everything in your mind and heart and then let Him execute them. Do not possess any wisdom of your own. For many times His execution will seem so contradictory to the plan He gave. He will seem to work against Himself. Simply listen, obey and trust God even when it seems highest folly so to do. He will in the end make "all things work together," but so many times in the first appearance of the outworking of His plans.

        So if you would know His voice, never consider results or possible effects. Obey even when He asks you to move in the dark. He Himself will be gloriously light in you. And there will spring up rapidly in your heart an acquaintanceship and a fellowship with God which will be overpowering in itself to hold you and Him together, even in severest testings and under most terrible pressures.--Way of Faith
