祈求、寻找、叩门 [Pray, Seek, Knock]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音7章7节:“你们祈求,就给你们;寻找,就寻见;叩门,就给你们开门。”

今日默想:我们的祷告永远不落空,只不过上帝不一定照我们所祷告的给我们,因祂知道什么才是我们所真正需要的。我们祷告所发出的“能量”,好像物理学上的物质不灭定律一样,永不消失。某物体可能在原有的形式上消失,但在另外的形式上继续存在。上帝会按照祂的主权和祂无限的智慧,来回应我们的祷告。上帝的“开门”,受我们人“叩门”的支配。上帝的“旨意”,受我们人“祷告”的支配。上帝作事的原则乃是:必须上帝的子民先有祷告,然后上帝才兴起作工。“祈求、寻找、叩门”说出我们的祷告应该多次、多方,直到得着上帝的答应为止。我们若要与人有正常的关系,就要与上帝有正常的关系。借着“祈求、寻找、叩门”过着依靠上帝、与祂密切相交的生活。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 7:7 :“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Today’s Meditation: Our prayers never fail. However, God might not give us exactly as what we want for He knows what is truly needed by us. The ‘energy’ released through our prayers is like the law of conservation in physics that says nothing will disappear. A thing might looks disappeared in a form, but actually still existing in another form. God will respond to us through His authority and unlimited wisdom. Our ‘knocking’ controls the ‘opening’ of the door. Our ‘prayers’ control the ‘will’ of God. The principle of God is that we pray before He works. ‘pray, seek, knock’ tells that our prayers must be repeatedly and multi-directional until God responds to us. We must have a proper relationship with God before having a proper relationship with people. We live an intimate life with God through ‘pray, seek, knock’.
