刺 [Sting]

书卷:哥林多后书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多后书12章8节:“为这事,我三次求过主,叫这刺离开我。”

今日默想:祷告有一个秘诀,就是多次向主祷告。祷告多次的原则,就是要祷告得透,祷告到通,直到清楚了上帝的旨意,直到得着了祂的答复。彻底的祷告,才能带来上帝清楚的答复,也才能使我们心中起了彻底的改变,能够以新的眼光来看一切困扰我们的事和我们曾祈求免去的事。基督徒生病了,除非我们能有把握像保罗那样一次、两次、三次求过主,明白这病留着是与他有益处。否则,我们还是求主医治的好。一个人若没有清楚看见上帝要他背负那一个疾病的软弱时,他可以大胆向主求,求主背负他的软弱和疾病。上帝的儿女活在地上,不是为着生病,乃是为着荣耀上帝。撒旦的差役并不是必然可以借着祷告被击退,虽然牠终究会被击溃。同样地,也不是每位上帝的儿女在今世都可经历身体得医治,或属灵能力的胜利。但有一件事是可以确定的,如果我们的态度是正常的话,所有临到我们身上的刺,能把我们更拉近主,更享受主的恩典和能力。

Book: 2 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

2 Corinthians 12:8 :“Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me.”

Today’s Meditation: The key of prayer is to pray multiple times. The principle of praying for multiple times is to pray until we understand the will of God and His reply. Thorough prayer allows God to reply clearly so as to change our mind to see the troubles we have and the things we prayed to go away. We should pray multiples time especially when we are sicked to understand the purpose of the sickness. We can pray to God to ask Him to carry our weaknesses and sickness if we cannot see the purpose. We live on this world to glorify God instead of being sicked. Satan may not be able to be repelled by prayer, but it will be defeated. In the same way, not all children of God can experience the curing of sickness and victory of spiritual strength. However, there is one thing we can be sure that the sting that landed on us can bring us closer to God and enjoy His grace and power.
