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.



【簡介】...



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!
