默想:

“但那等候耶和华的,必从新得力。他们必如鹰展翅上腾,他们奔跑却不困倦,行走却不疲乏。”(赛4031

静思:

“重新得力”是什么意思呢?从字面renew上看就是“更新”的意思,就像你换了一件衣服一样,你脱下“软弱”这件“破旧”的衣服,穿上“神的能力”这件袍子。神应许我们用他的能力替换我们的能力。

瞧,基督徒的生活不只是简单的更新,而是“与神交换”的更新。

神没有让我们沿着我们“过去的”方向,变得更好,面是与我们交换生命。

他承担了我们的罪,我们接受他的圣洁。

他“托住”我们的软弱,我们支取他的刚强。

他“理解”我们的焦虑,我们支取他的平安。

好极了。但,有个问题使得“更新”不可能发生。问题是:我们厌倦了等候。

行动

朋友,不要放弃“等候”,“等候”从来不会长久,因为掌管着一切的是神。

BIBLE MEDITATION:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

What does it mean to “renew” your strength? It literally means “changed,” as if you changed clothes. You remove your rags of weakness and put on God’s royal robes of strength. God promises to exchange our strength with His strength.

You see, the Christian life is not just simply a changed life, it is an exchanged life.

God doesn’t just change us from what we were to something better. He exchanges His life with us.

He takes our sin. We take His holiness.

He takes our weakness. We take His strength.

He takes our anxiety. We take His peace.

Sounds great. But what’s the problem? We get tired of waiting for the change.

ACTION POINT:

Friend, don’t give up. The wait is never too long when God is in charge.

Love worth finding
