安靜 Be Still

『你們出來必不至急忙。』(以賽亞書五十二章十二節)
我不相信,我們已經了解在安靜中的奇妙能力了。我們常太急躁-我們自己一定要去作-不給神一個機會彰顯祂的榮耀。因此,神常對我們說,『站住』(出十四章十三節),『安坐』(得三章十八節),『住了罷』!『靜了罷!』(可四章卅九節)祂才可以發揮祂的全能。

在我們基督徒的生活中,我們的失敗常是因為我們要自己工作來得勝。其實,我們需要讓神在我們裏面工作。當你請一個攝影師替你照相的時候,你必須安靜不動,完全讓他作。

神對於我們有一個永久的目的,就是要我們像祂的兒子,我們自己能作麼?神要我們得救,我們自己能作甚麼?祂要我們得勝,我們自己能作麼?祂要我們像祂那樣聖潔,我們自己能作甚麼?我們太以為自己能作,其實一樣都不能。即是不能,何不安靜等待神作呢?我們太會為神活動,不會為神安靜,所以我們真需要知道甚麼叫作安靜。-碎錦(Crumbs)

 

“Ye shall not go out with haste” (Isa. 52:12).

I do not believe that we have begun to understand the marvelous power there is in stillness. We are in such a hurry–we must be doing–so that we are in danger of not giving God a chance to work. You may depend upon it, God never says to us, “Stand still,” or “Sit still,” or “Be still,” unless He is going to do something.
This is our trouble in regard to our Christian life; we want to do something to be Christians when we need to let Him work in us. Do you know how still you have to be when your likeness is being taken?
Now God has one eternal purpose concerning us, and that is that we should be like His Son; and in order that this may be so, we must be passive. We hear so much about activity, may be we need to know what it is to be quiet. –Crumbs
