Day 16 Psalm 9:1-4,7-14 Give Thanks to God Devotedly Because of His Salvation
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-2)

1 I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O most High.

3 When my enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sat in the throne judging right.

7 But the LORD shall endure forever: he has prepared his throne for judgment.
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10 And they that know your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek you.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
12 When he avenges blood, he remembers them: he forgets not the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer from them that hate me, you that lift me up from the gates of death:
14 That I may show forth all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in your salvation.


Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail. What words we need to hear today as our academia, media, and own hearts brag that mankind is the center of the universe. What truth we need to rule our minds today - this life is neither ruled by me or the threat of my enemies. I can turn to the Lord in great thanksgiving as it is He who sits enthroned forever, it is His justice that rules, and He is the stronghold in whom we can put our trust. Even in the dark days of tragedy and failure in our own lives and in times when it seems evil is winning, our Lord is present with us in the world (v.11, among us in Zion), is actively judging evil (vv.4,7,8, 12), and never forgets His people (v.10) but shows such great mercy and care. What does this mean for the psalmist and me? It means instead of boasting of myself or cowering in fear and despair, I can publicly (v.14, gates of Zion) praise the Lord with my whole life (v1, my whole heart) for delivering me from sin, enemies, and death itself! Let’s sing together today I will rejoice in your salvation!

Day 16 詩篇9:1-4,7-14 因 神的救恩而一心稱謝祂
(背誦經文 1-2節)

1 我要一心稱謝耶和華;
我要傳揚你一切奇妙的作為。
2 我要因你歡喜快樂;
至高者啊,我要歌頌你的名!


3 我的仇敵轉身退去的時候,
他們一見你的面就跌倒滅亡。
4 因你已經為我伸冤,為我辨屈;
你坐在寶座上,按公義審判。

7 惟耶和華坐 為王,直到永遠;
他已經為審判設擺他的寶座。
8 他要按公義審判世界,
按正直判斷萬民。

9 耶和華又要給受欺壓的人作高臺,
在患難的時候作高臺。
10 耶和華啊,認識你名的人要倚靠你,
因你沒有離棄尋求你的人。

11 應當歌頌居錫安的耶和華,
將他所行的傳揚在眾民中。
12 因為那追討流人血之罪的-他記念受屈的人,
不忘記困苦人的哀求。

13 耶和華啊,你是從死門把我提拔起來的;
求你憐恤我,看那恨我的人所加給我的苦難,
14 好叫我述說你一切的美德;
我必在錫安城( - 原文是女子)的門因你的救恩歡樂。


【心得分享】「耶和華啊,求你起來,不容人得勝!」在這個以「人」为宇宙中心的時代,多麼需要聽到這樣一句話!當學術界,媒體,和我們的心不停地抬高「人」的地位時,這個道理一定要紧紧的控制我們的思想:我的一生不是被「我」或者我的敵人掌控。我要轉眼仰望 神,感謝祂,因祂永遠坐在寶座,祂的公義掌權,並且祂是我們的堡壘。甚至在我們悲傷和失敗的時候,好像仇敵在誇勝的時候,主依然與我們同在(11節,「居錫安的耶和華」)。祂在審判罪惡(4,7,8,12節),也從不忘記祂的子民(10節),何等的憐憫和慈愛。這對詩篇的作者、對我意味著什麼?它意味著我們不當自誇,也不當畏懼或絕望,而是在公眾前(14節,「錫安城的門」)一生(1節,「一心」)讚美祂。因祂救贖我們脫離罪、仇敵、甚至死亡!我們應當今日一起歌唱:「我因你的救恩歡樂!」

Introduction...



Day 15 Psalm 142:1-7 A Plea for Relief from Persecutors
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 5- 7)

A Contemplation of David. A Prayer when he was in the cave.

1 I cry out to the Lord with my voice;
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
2 I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.
3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.
4 Look on my right hand and see,
For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me;
No one cares for my soul.
5 I cried out to You, O Lord:
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
6 Attend to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than I.
7 Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me.”


Today’s Psalm is a prayer by David when he was in the cave in time of persecution by Saul. In this psalm, David pleaded his complaint and trouble to God, and declared his loneliness, weakness, and helplessness while enemies tried to overtake him. But when he turned to God, he could declare in faith that “You are my refuge, My portion in the land of the living.” (v5) David believed that God will incline His ear and hear his words, and that God Himself, will ‘Bring my (David’s) soul out of prison’ (v7), and “The righteous shall surround me (David)”(v7). And therefore, the psalmist praised the name of the Lord, and gave thanks for God having dealt so graciously with him. We shall be reminded, by the experiences of David, that no matter which hardship we are going through, we should look upon God with a humble heart like David’s, and put faith in Him that He will deliver us out of all troubles, for He is our refuge and portion, and also our salvation. Together we praise His name!

Day 15 詩篇142:1-7在困境中向 神的哀告,盼望可以在脫離患難之後感謝祂
大衛在洞裏作的訓誨詩,乃是祈禱
1 我發聲哀告耶和華,發聲懇求耶和華。
2 我在他面前吐露我的苦情,陳說我的患難。
3 我的靈在我裡面發昏的時候,你知道我的道路。
在我行的路上,敵人為我暗設網羅。
4 求你向我右邊觀看,因為沒有人認識我;
我無處避難,也沒有人眷顧我。
5 耶和華啊,我曾向你哀求,我說:「你是我的避難所,在活人之地你是我的福分。」
6 求你側耳聽我的呼求,因我落到極卑之地;
求你救我脫離逼迫我的人,因為他們比我強盛。
7 求你領我出離被囚之地,我好稱讚你的名。義人必環繞我,因為你是用厚恩待我。





【心得分享】
本篇是大衛逃避掃羅時,在洞中所作的訓誨詩。在本詩中,大衛向耶和華哀告他的苦情和患難,並陳訴自己被敵人追殺的孤單、軟弱和無助。他一無隱瞞的告訴他的 神,這些仇敵比他強盛,他現在的景況到了極卑之地。但是,他還是能在信心裡宣告說:「袮是我的避難所;在活人之地,袮是我的福分!」他相信 神會側耳而聽他的呼求,親自「領他出離被囚之地」,並使義人環繞他,用厚恩待他。藉著大衛的經歷,提醒我們無論處在什麼困境,甚至心裡發昏、絕望,都要真實地到 神面前傾心吐意,並堅信祂必能帶領我們脫離一切困境;有一天,我還要來稱謝祂!

Introduction...



Day 14 Psalm 34:1-8 Give thanks to God for His goodness and salvation
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 7- 8)

1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!


After David departed from Abimelech the king of the Philistines, he wrote the psalm to give thanks to God for answering him when he called upon the Lord in distress, and listening to his prayer in trouble. David said “I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (v1). Also the psalmist invited us to exalt His name and to give thanks to God, for He sent His messengers far off and encamped all around those who fear Him, so that those who looked to Him will not be ashamed.
When you face challenges and go through a spiritual valley, please do not forget that our God is good. Open your eyes of faith and look around, “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.” (v7) For we not only see, but taste the Grace of the Lord, and we (shall) live through the greatness of God day by day. David said: “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (v19)Praise the Lord, blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

Day 14 詩篇34:1-8 為著神的美善和救恩感謝祂
(背誦7-8節)
1 我要時時稱頌耶和華,
讚美他的話必常在我口中。
2 我的心必因耶和華誇耀,
謙卑人聽見,就要喜樂。
3 你們和我當稱耶和華為大,
一同高舉他的名。
4 我曾尋求耶和華,他就應允我,
救我脫離了一切的恐懼。
5 凡仰望他的便有光榮,
他們的臉必不蒙羞。
6 我這困苦人呼求,耶和華便垂聽,
救我脫離一切患難。
7 耶和華的使者在敬畏他的人四圍安營,搭救他們。
8 你們要嘗嘗主恩的滋味,便知道他是美善。
投靠他的人有福了!




【心得分享】
大衛從非利士王亞比米勒面前逃離後,就作詩感謝神在急難中應允他的尋求;在困苦艱難中垂聽他的禱告;救他脫離了一切的恐懼和患難。他說:「我要時時稱頌耶和華,讚美祂的話必常在我口中」。也邀請我們和他一同來高舉稱謝耶和華的名,因為祂差派使者四圍安營保守敬畏祂的人,叫凡仰望祂的人必不蒙羞。
當你遇到困境和屬靈低谷時,千萬不要忘記,我們的神是美善的,張開你信心的眼睛看:「祂使者正在你的四圍安營,如同當年滿山的火車火馬圍繞以利沙一樣圍繞你」。不但看見,而且我們還要去嘗嘗主的恩典,在每天的實際生活去經歷神的美善。大衛說:「義人多有苦難,但耶和華救他脫離這一切」。(參詩34:19)真是感謝主,投靠祂的人有福了!

Introduction...



Day 13 Pslam103:1-13 Reminding yourself to count on God's salvation in your heart and give thanks to God
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-5)

1 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The Lord executes righteousness
And justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known His ways to Moses,
His acts to the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
9 He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

Have you ever talked to your heart? When facing extreme difficulties, have you ever encouraged yourself to bless the Lord? David started with “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!” in the psalm today, and it feels like he needed to consciously encourage himself to give thanks to our Lord. David reminded himself to not forget all of the Lord’s blessings - the forgiveness of all of his iniquities, the healing of all his diseases, the redemption of his life from destruction, and being crowned with lovingkindness and tender mercies. David was also able to give thanks to the Lord as God satisfied his mouth with good things, so that his youth was renewed like the eagle’s. As David counted God’s blessings one by one, the Spirit enlightened him to acknowledge God’s everlasting mercy and love, a love so wide, so long, so deep, and so high that it goes well beyond our knowledge.
Maybe today you’re facing some challenging situations that drain you, but like David you can encourage yourself to not be overwhelmed! In spite of all life’s afflictions, let’s remind ourselves to “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits”!



【簡介】...



Day 13 詩篇103:1-13 提醒自己的心要數算神的救恩,稱謝耶和華
(背誦1-5節)
1 我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華;凡在我裡面的,也要稱頌他的聖名!
2 我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華,不可忘記他的一切恩惠。
3 他赦免你的一切罪孽,醫治你的一切疾病。
4 他救贖你的命脫離死亡,以仁愛和慈悲為你的冠冕。
5 他用美物使你所願的得以知足,以致你如鷹返老還童。


6 耶和華施行公義,為一切受屈的人申冤。
7 他使摩西知道他的法則,叫以色列人曉得他的作為。
8 耶和華有憐憫,有恩典,不輕易發怒,且有豐盛的慈愛。
9 他不長久責備,也不永遠懷怒。

10 他沒有按我們的罪過待我們,也沒有照我們的罪孽報應我們。
11 天離地何等的高,他的慈愛向敬畏他的人也是何等的大。
12 東離西有多遠,他叫我們的過犯離我們也有多遠。
13 父親怎樣憐恤他的兒女,耶和華也怎樣憐恤敬畏他的人。




【心得分享】
您是否曾經向自己來說話?當您在面對人生的低谷的時候,您是否曾經鼓勵您自己要來稱頌耶和華?在今天的詩篇中,大衛一開始就講到「我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華;凡在我裡面的,也要稱頌他的聖名!」似乎大衛的心也需要一些的鼓勵才能向 神發出感恩。大衛提醒自己不可忘記耶和華 神的一切恩惠。祂是如何赦免他一切的罪孽,醫治他的一切疾病;不僅僅救贖他的命脫離死亡,更以仁愛和慈悲為他的冠冕;還用美物使大衛所願的得以知足,以致大衛能常常如鷹返老還童。當他這樣一一數算 神的恩典,聖靈就開啟他認識了 神的慈愛和憐憫,實在是何等的長闊高深,過於我們能測度!
也許就在今天,您的生活中就有一些的難處,但請不要讓自己被自己低沉的心所控制。相反的,我們如大衛一樣,也來告訴自己:「我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華;凡在我裡面的,也要稱頌他的聖名!我的心哪,你要稱頌耶和華,不可忘記他的一切恩惠。」

Day 12 Psalm 51:1-19 Give Thanks to God for His Mercy and Forgivness
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 10-12)

A Prayer of Repentance
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

This psalm is the most renowned of all prayers of repentance. When Nathan the prophet pointed out David’s sin, David the psalmist came before God with a broken and a contrite heart and confessed that he had sinned against God, and asked God for His kindness and mercy, and to cleanse his sin. The psalmist believed that if he (himself) is willing to confess to God and to repent in truth, God Himself will “Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.” (v.9) and “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted” (2 Corinthians 7:10). Such a repentant sinner responds in thankfulness when they know the wonderful mercy that has blotted out all of the iniquities: Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods, having great mercy, passing over the transgressions and cleansing all the iniquities by which we have sinned against Him, (so) “that the bones You have broken may rejoice (vv. 7-8).

Furthermore, God not only forgives but gives us a new heart and a new spirit, that we may do His will. David said “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me” (vv. 10-11). After offering the broken and contrite heart to God, the psalmist, with boldness and diligence, asked for an obedient spirit. He would rejoice in His salvation again, and never let sins separate him from God (v.12). If we can confess and repent in truth, it shows that we know God’s grace and aim to bear fruits worthy of repentance.

At the end of the prayer, the psalmist asked blessings for Zion and Jerusalem, that God (shall) build the walls of Jerusalem, to protect the children of God from falling into the net which enemies have laid, and they therefore would not sin against Him like the psalmist.

Day 12 詩篇51:1-19 為著神的憐恤和赦免感恩
大衛與拔示巴同室以後,先知拿單來見他;他作這詩,交與伶長。
(背誦10-12節)
1 神啊,求你按你的慈愛憐恤我,
按你豐盛的慈悲塗抹我的過犯!
2 求你將我的罪孽洗除淨盡,並潔除我的罪!
3 因為我知道我的過犯,我的罪常在我面前。
4 我向你犯罪,唯獨得罪了你,在你眼前行了這惡,
以致你責備我的時候顯為公義,判斷我的時候顯為清正。
5 我是在罪孽裡生的,在我母親懷胎的時候就有了罪。
6 你所喜愛的是內裡誠實,你在我隱密處必使我得智慧。
7 求你用牛膝草潔淨我,我就乾淨;
求你洗滌我,我就比雪更白。
8 求你使我得聽歡喜快樂的聲音,使你所壓傷的骨頭可以踴躍。
9 求你掩面不看我的罪,塗抹我一切的罪孽。

10 神啊,求你為我造清潔的心,使我裡面重新有正直的靈。
11 不要丟棄我,使我離開你的面,不要從我收回你的聖靈。
12 求你使我仍得救恩之了樂,賜我樂意的靈扶持我。

13 我就把你的道指教有過犯的人,罪人必歸順你。
14 神啊,你是拯救我的神;
求你救我脫離流人血的罪!
我的舌頭就高聲歌唱你的公義。
15 主啊,求你使我嘴唇張開,
我的口便傳揚讚美你的話!

16 你本不喜愛祭物,若喜愛,我就獻上;
燔祭,你也不喜悅。
17 神所要的祭就是憂傷的靈;
神啊,憂傷痛悔的心,你必不輕看。

18 求你隨你的美意善待錫安, 建造耶路撒冷的城牆。
19 那時,你必喜愛公義的祭 和燔祭並全牲的燔祭;
那時,人必將公牛獻在你壇上。



【心得分享】
這是七篇懺悔詩裡最著名的一篇。大衛在先知拿單指出他的罪時,憂傷、痛悔地到 神面前承認自己得罪了 神,求 神賜下慈愛和憐恤,赦免、潔淨他的罪。詩人相信只要願意向 神真心認罪悔改,祂就「掩面不看我的罪,塗抹我一切的罪孽。」(9節)「依 神的意思憂愁,就生出沒有後悔的懊悔來,以致得救。」 (林後7:10)一個犯下重罪 的人(4節),在這個時刻,不僅是滿心的懊悔,也一定是充滿了感恩。有何神像我們的 神這樣有豐盛的憐憫和赦罪之恩,願意塗抹、潔淨我們一切已犯的罪,並且使我們原本因受定罪而壓傷的骨頭都可以再起來踴躍!(7-8節)
更沒想到的,是 神還要賜給我們新心和新靈,使我們可以遵行祂的旨意。大衛呼求說,「神啊,求袮為我造清潔的心,使我裡面重新有正直的靈。不要丟棄我,使我離開你的面,不要從我收回你的聖靈。」(10-11節)在獻上憂傷痛悔的心為祭物之後,詩人坦然而且迫切的祈求一個樂意順服的靈,他要重新以 神的救恩為樂,再也不讓罪使他與 神分離。(12節)一個真正憂傷痛悔的人,一定是一個認識恩典的人,也一定是曉得用實際的改變來證實他的悔改的人。(13-17節)
最後,詩人不忘記為錫安與耶路撒冷求祝福,求 神來建造耶路撒冷的城牆,保護 神的兒女不像他自己一樣陷在仇敵的網羅裡而得罪 神。

Day 11 Psalms 98:1-9 Remembering God’s salvation with a new song
(Memorization Scripture: v. 1)

1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
For He has done marvelous things;
His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

2 The Lord has made known His salvation;
His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.
3 He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.
5 Sing to the Lord with the harp,
With the harp and the sound of a psalm,
6 With trumpets and the sound of a horn;
Shout joyfully before the Lord, the King.
7 Let the sea roar, and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell in it;
8 Let the rivers clap their hands;
Let the hills be joyful together before the Lord,
9 For He is coming to judge the earth.
With righteousness He shall judge the world,
And the peoples with equity.

“Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory” (v1). Our God does marvelous things. His work among the people of Israel is marvelous. Similarly, God accomplished the marvelous work of salvation through His son Jesus, whose name is “wonderful” (Isaiah 9:6). Jesus is the Incarnate Word. He lived among us and paid our debt on the cross. He was resurrected, and he ascended to the heavens. He will come again and bring judgement. God’s salvation, from beginning to end, is full of marvels.

Not only did God accomplish salvation before the foundation of the world, but, every day He brings renewal into our lives. In each day, God delivers us from a fallen world and from our sin nature so that we are not condemned before His righteous judgement. The “new song” flows out of the new experiences we have under God’s saving grace. As it is written, “[Your mercies and compassions] are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23). Day by day, let us take to heart God’s new doings on us through His finished salvation and count His blessings. Let us shout joyfully before Him and sing Him a new song.

Day 11 詩篇98:1-9 用新歌記念 神的救恩
(背誦第1節)
1 你們要向耶和華唱新歌!
因為他行過奇妙的事;
他的右手和聖臂施行救恩。

2 耶和華發明了他的救恩,在列邦人眼前顯出公義;
3 記念他向以色列家所發的慈愛,所憑的信實。
地的四極都看見我們 神的救恩。

4 全地都要向耶和華歡樂;
要發起大聲,歡呼歌頌!
5 要用琴歌頌耶和華,
用琴和詩歌的聲音歌頌他!
6 用號和角聲,在大君王耶和華面前歡呼!

7 願海和其中所充滿的澎湃;
世界和住在其間的也要發聲。
8 願大水拍手;
願諸山在耶和華面前一同歡呼;
9 因為他來要審判遍地。
他要按公義審判世界,按公正審判萬民。






【心得分享】
「你們要向耶和華唱新歌,因為他行過奇妙的事;他右手和聖臂施行救恩。」(1節)我們的 神是獨行奇事的那一位,祂在以色列人身上的作爲是奇妙的,同樣,神藉著祂的兒子主耶穌,在你我身上也成就了奇妙的救恩。主耶穌的名字就是 「奇妙」(賽9:6),祂的道成肉身、在地的生活、十架的代贖、復活與升天、再來與審判。 神的救恩,從起頭到末了,都滿了奇妙。

神不單在創世以前已完成了救恩,也在我們生活的每一天施行 祂新的拯救,從一切的環境,罪性裏面把我們拯救出來,免於 神公義的審判。「新」歌是由我們對神的救恩有新鮮的經歷而來,「每早晨這都是新的,你的誠實極其廣大!」(哀 3:23 )。讓我們悉心的捕捉 神的救恩我們在我們身上新的工作,數算 神的恩典,以此向耶和華歡呼,唱「新」歌。

Day 10 Psalm 32:1-11 Forgiveness Turns Into Thankfulness
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 7)

1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6 For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
7 You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Today do you know the joy of being truly, completely forgiven? Once you were bound in sin, crushed in iniquity, and enslaved under the heavy load of you - your flesh and your rebellion. And just as our merciful Father forgave us when Jesus was bound to the cross for our sin and crushed for our iniquities, so too His grace is available now as you acknowledge your sin to Him. Oh what daily joy and thanksgiving is ours in being able to talk to God in confession and to be so graciously delivered from sin! Don’t groan through today under sin’s heavy weight, but come rest in your Lord who will deliver and preserve you. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Day 10 詩篇 32:1-11 因罪得赦免而有的感恩
(背誦第7節)
1 得赦免其過、遮蓋其罪的,這人是有福的!
2 凡心裡沒有詭詐,耶和華不算為有罪的,這人是有福的!
3 我閉口不認罪的時候,因終日唉哼而骨頭枯乾。
4 黑夜白日,你的手在我身上沉重,我的精液耗盡,如同夏天的乾旱。(細拉)

5 我向你陳明我的罪,不隱瞞我的惡。
我說「我要向耶和華承認我的過犯」,你就赦免我的罪惡。(細拉)
6 為此,凡虔誠人都當趁你可尋找的時候禱告你,大水泛溢的時候,必不能到他那裡。
7 你是我藏身之處,你必保佑我脫離苦難,以得救的樂歌四面環繞我。(細拉)

8 我要教導你,指示你當行的路,我要定睛在你身上勸誡你。
9 你不可像那無知的騾馬,必用嚼環轡頭勒住牠,不然就不能馴服。
10 惡人必多受苦楚,唯獨倚靠耶和華的,必有慈愛四面環繞他。
11 你們義人應當靠耶和華歡喜快樂,你們心裡正直的人都當歡呼!


【心得分享】
你嘗過被 神完全赦免的喜樂嗎?曾經的我們都被罪所捆綁,被惡所壓傷,被肉體和老我所轄制。然而耶穌為我們的罪被釘在十字架上,背負了我們一切的不義。當我們在十架下向 神認罪之時,慈愛的 神赦免的恩臨到我們。如今我們可以坦然無懼地向 神認罪,與 神交通,并且完全不再受罪的轄制,這實在值得我們每天都歡喜快樂地向 神獻上感恩!不要再在罪的重擔下唉哼了,到拯救并保全我們的 神面前安息吧!你們義人應當靠耶和華歡喜快樂,你們心裡正直的人都當歡呼!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 9

Introduction...



Day 9 Psalm 30:4-5, 10-12 Thanks Through it All
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 4-5)
4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.


10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me;
Lord, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.


[Sharing] Life so often moves in rhythms of peaks and valleys, with our darker days often throwing us into despair, worry, and even bitterness. David here does not whitewash over his mourning but recognizes that though times of heartache and seasons of refining come for us who are in covenant (saints) with the merciful God, there truly is great thankfulness because the joy of the Lord does comes in the morning and His favor lasts a lifetime. Darkness does not last - God sees to that! We can give thanks to God always and forever for turning our mourning into dancing and removing our sackcloth to clothe us in His goodness, all so that we may sing His glory and not be silent.

Day 9 詩篇30:4-5, 10-12 感謝 神的恩典乃是一生之久
(背誦4-5節)
4 耶和華的聖民哪,你們要歌頌他,稱讚他可記念的聖 名。
5 因為,他的怒氣不過是轉眼之間;他的恩典乃是一生之久。
一宿雖然有哭泣, 早晨便必歡呼。


10 耶和華啊,求你應允我,憐恤我! 耶和華啊,求你幫助我!
11 你已將我的哀哭變為跳舞, 將我的麻衣脫去,給我披上喜樂,
12 好叫我的靈( - 原文是榮耀)歌頌你,並不住聲。 耶和華-我的 神啊,我要稱謝你,直到永遠。


【心得分享】我們的生命中有高山也有低谷。在黑暗的日子里,我們會心存憂慮,絕望,甚至苦毒。在這首詩篇中,大衛絲毫沒有粉飾他的哀痛,他知道我們這群蒙恩的子民,即使是與慈愛的神立約,也會經歷心碎與試煉。但他更知道神所賜的喜樂每早晨都是新鮮,祂的恩典乃是一生之久!神看顧我們,所以黑暗總會過去。因此即使在苦難中,我們也可以有真實的感恩。讓我們學習在任何的環境中都把感恩歸給神,因為祂會將我們的哀哭變為跳舞,將我們的麻衣脫去,給我們披上喜樂。 讓我們都來歌頌祂,並不住聲!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 8

Introduction...



Day 8 Psalms 107:1-9
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 8-9)
1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
3 And gathered out of the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;
They found no city to dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty,
Their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way,
That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.
8 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.



[Sharing] The psalmist says that each one who received grace should give thanks to God. By counting the grace of God, we should be reminded that He is good, and His mercy endures forever. He saved us from enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us, and He led us the right way, so that we would not be lost in the wilderness. Also out of His love, He promised that “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6)
Yes, all we like sheep have gone astray, it is He that found us in the wasteland, a howling wilderness. He encircled us with love, He instructed us, He kept us as the apple of His eye. And also He poured out His soul and became the bread of life for us. As Jesus said “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)



【簡介】...



Day 8 詩篇107:1-9 因神慈愛的救贖和應許稱謝祂
(背誦8-9節)
1「你們要稱謝耶和華,因他本為善,他的慈愛永遠長存!」
2 願耶和華的贖民說這話,就是他從敵人手中所救贖的,
3 從各地,從東從西,從南從北所招聚來的。
4 他們在曠野荒地漂流,尋不見可住的城邑,
5 又飢又渴,心裡發昏。
6 於是他們在苦難中哀求耶和華,他從他們的禍患中搭救他們。
7 又領他們行走直路,使他們往可居住的城邑。
8 但願人因耶和華的慈愛和他向人所行的奇事都稱讚他!
9 因他使心裡渴慕的人得以知足,使心裡飢餓的人得飽美物。



【心得分享】 詩人呼籲每一個蒙恩的人都要來稱謝耶和華,藉著數算 神的恩典提醒我們,我們的 神本為善,祂的慈愛永遠長存! 神曾救贖我們脫離仇敵的手,領我們行走直路,不在曠野漂流。又因愛應許我們,凡心裡渴慕尋求祂的人都得飽足。
是的,我們也都曾如羊走迷,是祂把我們從曠野荒涼野獸吼叫之地找回,用愛環繞我們,看顧我們,保護我們,如同保護眼中的瞳人。祂又將自己的生命傾倒,成為我們生命的糧,正如耶穌所說:「我就是生命的糧。到我這裡來的,必定不餓;信我的,永遠不渴。」(約6:35)

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 7

Introduction...



Day 7 Psalm 92:1-15 Give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness and faithfulness
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 12-15)

1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
3 On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
4 For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5 O Lord, how great are Your works!
Your thoughts are very deep.
6 A senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
7 When the wicked spring up like grass,
And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8 But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox;
I have been anointed with fresh oil.
11 My eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
15 To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.


The psalmist reminds us that giving thanks to the Lord and singing praises to the name of the Most High is good. We are invited to “declare [His] lovingkindness in the morning, and [His] faithfulness every night.” If we begin each day with praises and thanksgiving towards God, our focus turns from the burdens and pressures of life to our loving Lord. We are then able to enjoy His lovingkindness and blessings and to experience His amazing works. And just suppose, at the end of each day, if we would come before God again to reflect on how He has led us through the day by the integrity of His heart and the skillfulness of His hands, oh our gratitude would overflow!


【簡介】...



Day 7 詩篇92:1-15 因為耶和華的慈愛信實正直稱謝祂
(背誦12-15節)

1 稱謝耶和華! 歌頌你至高者的名!
2-3 用十弦的樂器和瑟,用琴彈幽雅的聲音,早晨傳揚你的慈愛,每夜傳揚你的信實,這本為美事。
4 因你耶和華藉著你的作為叫我高興,我要因你手的工作歡呼。
5 耶和華啊,你的工作何其大!你的心思極其深!
6 畜類人不曉得,愚頑人也不明白:
7 惡人茂盛如草,一切作孽之人發旺的時候,正是他們要滅亡,直到永遠。
8 唯你耶和華是至高,直到永遠。
9 耶和華啊,你的仇敵都要滅亡,一切作孽的也要離散。
10 你卻高舉了我的角,如野牛的角;我是被新油膏了的。
11 我眼睛看見仇敵遭報,我耳朵聽見那些起來攻擊我的惡人受罰。
12 義人要發旺如棕樹,生長如黎巴嫩的香柏樹。
13 他們栽於耶和華的殿中,發旺在我們 神的院裡。
14 他們年老的時候仍要結果子,要滿了汁漿而常發青,
15 好顯明耶和華是正直的,他是我的磐石,在他毫無不義。


【心得分享】詩人在這裡提醒我們稱謝耶和華,歌頌至高者的名本為一件美事。我們需要「早晨傳揚 神的慈愛,每夜傳揚 神的信實」。當我們用向 神的感謝和讚美來開始一天的生活的時候,我們的注意力不知不覺地就從所要面對的壓力和重擔上轉移到這位慈愛的主的的身上。這可以幫助我們在一天的生活中更多地來享受祂的慈愛和眷顧,經歷祂奇妙的作為。而當一天結束的時候,我們再一次來到 神的面前來回想 神是怎樣按著祂心中的純正和手中的巧妙來帶領我們這一天的時候,我們的感激將更加滿溢!
當我們這樣來過每一天的生活的時候,我們要發旺如棕樹,生長如黎巴嫩的香柏樹,到年老的時候仍要結果子,要滿了汁漿而常發青,何等蒙福的人生!

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 6

Introduction...



Day 6 Psalm 119:57-64 Give Thanks to God because of His words
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 62-64)

57 You are my portion, O Lord;
I have said that I would keep Your words.
58 I entreated Your favor with my whole heart;
Be merciful to me according to Your word.
59 I thought about my ways,
And turned my feet to Your testimonies.
60 I made haste, and did not delay
To keep Your commandments.
61 The cords of the wicked have bound me,
But I have not forgotten Your law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You,
Because of Your righteous judgments.
63 I am a companion of all who fear You,
And of those who keep Your precepts.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of Your mercy;
Teach me Your statutes.


The psalmist rises to give thanks to God for His words at midnight! How we admire his deep understanding and thirst for God’s words. We experience the blessing and grace of God by following His words. Not only do His words lead our path, but they also set us free from the cords of the wicked. Let us give God thanks for His words, desire for His words, be joyful with His words, and obey His commands. And as we do we will find ourselves lost in His immense mercy and love. “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.” (John 15:10a)


【簡介】...



Day 6 詩篇119:57-64 為著 神的話稱謝祂
(背誦62-64節)
57 耶和華是我的福分,我曾說,我要遵守你的言語。
58 我一心求過你的恩,願你照你的話憐憫我。
59 我思想我所行的道,就轉步歸向你的法度。
60 我急忙遵守你的命令,並不遲延。
61 惡人的繩索纏繞我,我卻沒有忘記你的律法。
62 我因你公義的典章,半夜必起來稱謝你。
63 凡敬畏你、守你訓詞的人,我都與他做伴。
64 耶和華啊,你的慈愛遍滿大地,求你將你的律例教訓我。



【心得分享】 詩人因著 神的話在半夜必起來稱謝耶和華,讓我們看見詩人對 神的話有何等的認識和體會。因著遵守 神的話,經歷到耶和華是我們的福分和恩典。祂的話不單指引我們前面的道路,也救我們脫離惡人的繩索。讓我們爲著 神的話稱謝祂,以 神的話爲樂、愛慕 神的話、遵行 神的話。以至於沉浸在主那豐滿的慈愛中。「你们若遵守我的命令,就常在我的愛裡。」(約15:10a)

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 5

Introduction...



Day 5 Psalm 65:5, 9-13 Experience God's abundant provision

5 By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us,
O God of our salvation,
You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
And of the far-off seas;
...
9 You visit the earth and water it,
You greatly enrich it;
The river of God is full of water;
You provide their grain,
For so You have prepared it.
10 You water its ridges abundantly,
You settle its furrows;
You make it soft with showers,
You bless its growth.
11 You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.
12 They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,
And the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks;
The valleys also are covered with grain;
They shout for joy, they also sing.


Although David’s life is filled with countless persecutions and oppressions, at the same time, he profoundly experiences God’s salvation, preservation and provision. That’s why he can praise God with a heart full of gratitude and say: God our Savior, you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas (v5)! Looking at the nature created by God as well as the rain, grain, livestock and everything else, the psalmist then vividly portrays God's grace and writes: ``You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance (v11).” When we think of God’s abundant grace on us day in and day out, year after year, we cannot help but accept the invitation of the psalmist -- to thank the great God and His abundant supply and blessings together with the rivers, paths, wilderness, meadows, hills, and flocks.


【簡介】...



Day 5 詩篇65:5, 9-13 體會神豐盛的供應
(背誦11-13節)
5 拯救我們的 神啊,你必以威嚴秉公義應允我們;
你本是一切地極和海上遠處的人所倚靠的。

9 你眷顧地,降下透雨,使地大得肥美。
神的河滿了水;你這樣澆灌了地,好為人預備五穀。
10 你澆透地的溝,潤平脊,降甘霖,使地軟和;
其中發長的,蒙你賜福。
11 你以恩典為年歲的冠冕;
你的路徑都滴下脂油,12 滴在曠野的草場上。
小山以歡樂束腰;13 草場以羊群為衣;
谷中也長滿了五穀。
這一切都歡呼歌唱。



【心得分享】 大衛的一生充滿了無數的逼迫患難,同時,他也非常深刻地經歷了 神親自的拯救、保守和供應,所以,他滿懷感恩地向 神發出讚嘆說,拯救我們的 神啊,袮是一切世人所倚靠的!(v5),接著,詩人環顧 神所創造的大自然,以及 神所賜予的雨水、五穀、牲畜...,便生動地描繪出 神的恩典說「你以恩典為年歲的冠冕;你的路徑都滴下脂油。」(v11) 想到 神的恩典在我們身上,日復一日、年復一年,你我是否也忍不住要接受詩人的邀請 —— 與江河、路徑、曠野、草場、小山、羊群...,一同來稱謝 神和祂豐盛的供應與眷顧?

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 4

Introduction...



Day 4 Psalm 8:1-9 What is man that You are mindful of him!
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-4)
1 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?

5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6-8 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!


[Sharing] As the psalmist looks to the divinely created heavens, we are given a glimpse of God’s omnipotence and wisdom, and we are compelled to give thanks for His love. Even more so, we cannot help but admit our insignificance. Indeed, what is man that God is mindful of him! God says, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him” (Isaiah 43:7). If we cannot take this to heart, we would not be able to understand why God has entrusted us with ruling over His creation. Furthermore, we would find this unfathomable: that after man gave into Satan’s temptation, God sent His only Son as a man to give His life as ransom so that a new people would be brought forth. The first created man was not able to complete God’s charge, but the last Adam, Jesus Christ, has received honor and glory as His crown (Hebrews 2:9), and all things are under His feet (1 Corinthians 15:27, Ephesians 1:22). As Jesus Christ reigns over our lives, you and I, who have put our faith in Jesus Christ, will restore God’s intended purpose for His creation.


【簡介】...



Day 4 詩篇8:1-9 人算什麼,祢竟顧念他!
(背誦1-4節)
1 耶和華-我們的主啊,你的名在全地何其美!
你將你的榮耀彰顯於天。
2 你因敵人的緣故,從嬰孩和吃奶的口中,
建立了能力,使仇敵和報仇的閉口無言。
3 我觀看你指頭所造的天,並你所陳設的月亮星宿,
4 便說:人算甚麼,你竟顧念他!世人算甚麼,你竟眷顧他!

5 你叫他比天使微小一點,並賜他榮耀、尊貴為冠冕。
6-8 你派他管理你手所造的,
使萬物,就是一切的牛羊、田野的獸、空中的鳥、海裏的魚,
凡經行海道的,都服在他的腳下。
9 耶和華-我們的主啊, 你的名在全地何其美!


【心得分享】詩人觀看 神的所創造的天,不僅使我們看見祂的全能和智慧,感恩祂的慈愛,更是忍不住承認自己的卑微。是的,人算什麼,神竟然這樣眷顧他!神說,「凡稱為我名下的人,是我為自己的榮耀創造的,是我所做成,所造作的。」(賽43:7) 我們若看不見這個點,就不能明白為什麼神賦予我們使命來管理祂所造的;更不能明白為什麼人跟從撒旦的誘惑墮落之後,神要使祂的獨生子成為人的樣式,捨命完成救贖,開啟了新造的族類!的確,第一個受造的人沒有完成神的託付,末後的亞當,耶穌基督,卻得了尊貴、榮耀為冠冕(來2:9),萬有都服在祂腳下(林前15:27,弗1:22)。你我這些因信耶穌基督的人,也要因耶穌基督在生命中作王,恢復 神起初創造的心意。

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 3

Introduction...



Day 3 Psalm 7:1,3-6,8-11,17 Be thankful For God's righteous judgment
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 8-9)

1. O Lord my God, in You I put my trust;
Save me from all those who persecute me;
And deliver me
...
3 O Lord my God, if I have done this:
If there is iniquity in my hands,
4 If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me,
Or have plundered my enemy without cause,
5 Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me;
Yes, let him trample my life to the earth,
And lay my honor in the dust. Selah
6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger;
Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies;
Rise up for me to the judgment You have commanded!
...
8 The Lord shall judge the peoples;
Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,
And according to my integrity within me.
9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,
But establish the just;
For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.

10 My defense is of God,
Who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a just judge,
And God is angry with the wicked every day.
...
17 I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness,
And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

David comes before the Lord and tells of his sufferings: how his enemies' slander and persecutions are like a lion tearing him apart, with none to deliver. However, even in such difficult circumstances he first asks God to assess his uprightness, to see if there is iniquity in his hands. Only then does he pray to God: "Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies". Furthermore, David praises the Lord for he knows that He judges justly, tests the hearts and minds, and saves the upright in heart. When we encounter malicious slander or harsh criticism, do not forget that our God is a God who judges justly. He is angry with the wicked and saves the upright in heart. Therefore, Paul says in Romans 12:19: "19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord."


【簡介】...



Day 3 詩篇7:1,3-6,8-11,17 因著神公義的判斷而感恩
(背誦8-9節)
1 耶和華我的神啊,我投靠你,
求你救我脫離一切追趕我的人,將我救拔出來,

3 耶和華我的神啊,我若行了這事,若有罪孽在我手裡,
4 我若以惡報那與我交好的人…,
5 就任憑仇敵追趕我,直到追上,
將我的性命踏在地下,使我的榮耀歸於灰塵!(細拉)
6 耶和華啊,求你在怒中起來,
挺身而立,抵擋我敵人的暴怒!
求你為我興起!你已經命定施行審判!

8 耶和華向眾民施行審判。
耶和華啊,求你按我的公義和我心中的純正判斷我。
9 願惡人的惡斷絕,願你堅立義人,
因為公義的神察驗人的心腸肺腑。

10 神是我的盾牌,他拯救心裡正直的人。
11 神是公義的審判者,又是天天 向惡人發怒的神。

17 我要照耶和華的公義稱謝他, 歌頌耶和華至高者的名。



【心得分享】大衛到神面前陳述自己的苦情,仇敵的譭謗攻擊好象曠野兇惡的獅子要將他撕碎,卻無人搭救他。在艱難的環境中他首先求 神鑑察他的正直,有無罪孽在手裡,然後呼求神“為我興起”抵擋仇敵的惡行。不但如此,大衛稱謝耶和華,因為他知道耶和華是按公義向眾民施行審判的神,祂察驗人的心腸肺腑,拯救心裡正直的人。當我們遭遇惡意的毀謗、無情的批評落在艱難困苦的環境時,不要忘記我們的神是按公義向眾民施行審判的神,祂向惡人發怒,卻要堅立義人。所以,保羅說:“親愛的弟兄,不要自己申冤,寧可讓步,聽憑主怒;因為經上記著:「主說:申冤在我,我必報應。」” (羅12:19)

Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 2

Introduction...



Day 2: Psalm 23:1-6 Be thankful for the Lord being our shepherd
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-6)

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.


What a glorious message that the Lord is our loving shepherd! Our God is the one who provides us sufficiently in time so that we do not lack anything. He leads us to the green pastures when we are hungry. He guides us to the still waters when we are weary. When we died in sins and transgressions, He restored our souls and leads us in the paths of righteousness. Even though sometimes we do walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we do not have to fear, because the Lord Himself is always with us. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies, so that we can always enjoy His grace regardless of any difficulties. Moreover, He anoints our heads with oil, and our cups run over. Goodness and mercy follow us throughout our lives all because the amazing God is our great shepherd. Let’s all trust Him, follow His guidance, and enjoy His presence, that is, dwelling in the house of the Lord forever. Let’s give all the praises and thanks to our amazing shepherd!

Introduction...




Give Thanks to God For Who He Is 因著 神的所是稱謝 神



Day 1 Psalm 136:1-9 Give thanks to God for His Creation
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-3)
1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
2 Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever.
3 Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever:

4 To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever;
5 To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endures forever;
6 To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, For His mercy endures forever;
7 To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endures forever—
8 The sun to rule by day, For His mercy endures forever;
9 The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endures forever.

If we look upon God’s wondrous creation with humble hearts, we will gasp with admiration. But if our hearts are yet more humble, we will see within His wondrous creation His wondrous love. These verses call Him the God of gods and the Lord of lords: they speak to His goodness, His doing of great wonders, and His wisdom, and they provoke us to ponder His power, His creation, and His wholeness. Their central message is but one: we are to give thanks to the Lord, for His mercy endures forever!

Hebrews 11:13-16
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. 15 And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.

13 這些人都是存著信心死的,並沒有得著所應許的,卻從遠處望見,且歡喜迎接,又承認自己在世上是客旅,是寄居的。 14 說這樣話的人,是表明自己要找一個家鄉。 15 他們若想念所離開的家鄉,還有可以回去的機會。 16 他們卻羨慕一個更美的家鄉,就是在天上的。所以神被稱為他們的神,並不以為恥,因為他已經給他們預備了一座城。

20 在大戶人家,不但有金器銀器,也有木器瓦器,有作為貴重的,有作為卑賤的。 21 人若自潔,脫離卑賤的事,就必做貴重的器皿,成為聖潔,合乎主用,預備行各樣的善事。 22 你要逃避少年的私慾,同那清心禱告主的人追求公義、信德、仁愛、和平。

1 Corinthians 11:23-26
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

James 1:22-25
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

雅1:22-25
22 只是你們要行道,不要單單聽道,自己欺哄自己。 23 因為聽道而不行道的,就像人對著鏡子看自己本來的面目, 24 看見,走後,隨即忘了他的相貌如何。 25 唯有詳細察看那全備、使人自由之律法的,並且時常如此,這人既不是聽了就忘,乃是實在行出來,就在他所行的事上必然得福。

弗4:11-13
11 他所賜的有使徒,有先知,有傳福音的,有牧師和教師, 12 為要成全聖徒,各盡其職,建立基督的身體, 13 直等到我們眾人在真道上同歸於一,認識神的兒子,得以長大成人,滿有基督長成的身量,
