我…常與你們同在

~我…常與你們同在,直到世界的末了。~馬太福音28:29

不要帶著懼怕的心去看前面將臨的事。要帶著盼望去看它們,因為主是我們的主,必要帶領我們一步一步過去。祂常與你同在,你只要緊緊抓住祂的手,祂會引導你安然經過一切的。當你軟弱無力,站立不住的時候,祂會將你懷抱在祂大能的膀臂中。

不要為明天憂慮。永活的神今天既然看顧你,明天、每一天,也必定會同樣看顧你。有時祂不叫你遇見試探,有時祂加你力量使你能忍受試探。所以,放心,拋棄一切焦急的意念和煩惱的理想。-賽爾斯(Frances de Sales)

『耶和華是我的牧者』(詩廿三篇一節)。

『是』字在原文是現在式,不是過去式『曾是』,也不是將來式『將是』,也不是未定式『或是』,『耶和華是我的牧者』,祂現在是,祂永遠是,在主日是,在星期一也是,在一星期中每一天都是,在正月是,在十二月也是,在一年中每一月都是,在家裏是,在外鄉也是,在平安時是,在危險時也是,在豐餘時是,在缺乏時也是。在任何環境中都是。-戴德生(J. Hudson Taylor)

我們的信心說神是甚麼,祂就是甚麼。

 

And, lo, I am with you always ~Matthew 28:20

Never look ahead to the changes and challenges of this life in fear. Instead, as they arise look at them with the full assurance that God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. Hasn’t He kept you safe up to now? So hold His loving hand tightly, and He will lead you safely through all things. And when you cannot stand, He will carry you in His arms.

Do not look ahead to what may happen tomorrow. The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you His unwavering strength that you may bear it. Be at peace, then, and set aside all anxious thoughts and worries.
–Francis de Sales

The Lord is my shepherdPsalm 23:1

Not was, not may be, nor will be. “The Lord is my shepherd.” He is on Sunday, on Monday, and through every day of the week. He is in January, in December, and every month of the year. He is when I’m at home and in China. He is during peace and war, and in times of abundance or poverty.
–J. Hudson Taylor

He will silently plan for you,
His object of omniscient care;
God Himself undertakes to be
Your Pilot through each subtle snare.
He WILL silently plan for you,
So certainly, He cannot fail!
Rest on the faithfulness of God,
In Him you will surely prevail.
He will SILENTLY plan for you
Some wonderful surprise of love.
No eye has seen, nor ear has heard,
But it is kept for you above.
He will silently PLAN for you,
His purposes will all unfold;
Your tangled life will shine at last,
A masterpiece of skill untold.
He will silently plan FOR YOU,
Happy child of a Father’s care,
As if no other claimed His love,
But you alone to Him were dear.

–E. Mary Grimes

Whatever our faith says God is, He will be.
