WHY WORRY?
1/1

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.... Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? (Luck 12:22-25, NKJV)

不要为生命忧虑吃什么,为身体忧虑穿什么;因为生命胜于饮食,身体胜于衣裳。你想乌鸦,也不种也不收,又没有仓又没有库,上帝尚且养活它。你们比飞鸟是何等的贵重呢!你们哪一个能用思虑使寿数多加一刻呢?

**Takeaway: Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.... Fear not, I will help you. (Isaiah 41:10,13, NKJV)

你不要害怕,因为我与你同在;不要惊惶,因为我是你的上帝。我必坚固你,我必帮助你;我必用我公义的右手扶持你。因为我耶和华--你的上帝必搀扶你的右手,对你说:不要害怕!我必帮助你。

**Takeaway: Fear not, I will help you.

I lift up my eyes to the hills--from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.(Psalm 121:1-6)

我要向山举目,我的帮助从何而来?我的帮助从造天地的耶和华而来。他必不叫你的脚动摇;保护你的必不打盹!保护以色列的,也不打盹也不睡觉。保护你的是耶和华;耶和华在你右边荫庇你。白日,太阳必不伤你;夜间,月亮必不害你。

**Takeaway: He is always watching, never sleeping. He protects you day and night.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV)

应当一无挂虑,只要凡事藉着祷告、祈求,和感谢,将你们所要的告诉上帝。上帝所赐、出人意外的平安必在耶稣基督里保守你们的心怀意念。

He Himself has said,"I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say:"The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:5-6, NKJV)

主曾说:“我总不撇下你,也不丢弃你。”所以我们可以放胆说:“主是帮助我的,我必不惧怕;人能把我怎么样呢?”

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.... Fear not, for I am with you.... Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters. (Isaiah 43:2,5,16, NKJV)

你从水中经过,我必与你同在;你趟过江河,水必不漫过你;你从火中行过,必不被烧,火焰也不着在你身上。不要害怕,因为我与你同在。耶和华在沧海中开道,在大水中开路。

**Takeaway: Fear not, for I am with you.

The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.... Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. (Philippians 4:7-8, NKJV)

上帝所赐出人意外的平安,必在基督耶稣里保守你们的心怀意念。凡事真实的、可敬的、公义的、清洁的、可爱的、有美名的,若有什么德行,若有什么称赞,这些事你们都要思念。

WHEN YOU FEEL UNLOVED
1/8

May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love; and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God's children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully konw or understand it. And so at last you will be filled up with God himself. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

使基督因你们的信,住在你们的心里叫你们的爱心有根有基,能以和众圣徒一同明白基督的爱是何等长阔高深;并知道这爱是是过于人所能测度的,便叫上帝一切所充满的,充满了你们。

**Takeaway: May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love.

All praise to him who always loves us and who set us free from our sins by pouring out his lifeblood for us.... Because of what Christ has done, we have become gifts to God that he delights in, for as part of God's sovereign plan we were chosen from the beginning to be his. (Revelation 1:5; Ephesians 1:11)

他爱我们,用自己的血使我们脱离罪恶。我们也在他里面得了基业,这原是那位随己意行作万事的,照着他旨意所预定的。

**Takeaway: We have become gifts to God that he delights in.

When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother's womb, when I was growing there in secret, you knew that I was there--you saw me before I was born. The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book. (Psalm 139:15-16, TEV)

我在暗中受造,在地的深处被联络,那时,我的形体并不向你隐藏。我未成形的体质,你的眼早已看见了。你所定的日子,我尚未度一日,你都写在你的册上了。

**Takeaway: When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother's womb, you knew that I was there.

Hide your loved ones in the shelter of your presence, safe beneath your hand, safe from all conspiring men. Blessed is the Lord, for he has shown me that his never-failing love protects me like the walls of a fort. (Psalm 31:20-21)

你必把他们藏在你面前的隐密处,免得遇见人的计谋;你必暗暗地保守他们在亭子里,免受口舌的争闹。耶和华是应当称颂的,因为他在坚固城里向我施展奇妙的慈爱。

I have created you and cared for you since you were born. I will be your God through all your lifetime, yes, even when your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you. I will carry you along and be your Savior.... The very hairs of your head are all numbered. (Isaiah 46:3-4; Matthew 10:30)

你们自从生下,就蒙我保抱;自从出胎,便蒙我怀搂。直到你们年老,我仍这样;直到你们发白,我仍怀搂。我已造作,也必保抱,窝必怀抱,也必拯救。就是你们的头发也被数过了。

**Takeaway: I made you and I will be your God through all your lifetime.

The Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from the Father.... The Lord says, "I will make my people strong with power from me! They will go wherever they wish, and wherever they go they will be under my personal care". (John 16:27; Zechariah 10:12)

父自己爱你们,因为你们已经爱我,又信我是从父出来的。“我必使他们倚靠我,得以坚固;一举一动必奉我的名。”这是耶和华说的。

We konw how much God loves us because we have felt his love and because we believe him when he tells us that he loves us dearly.... We need have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly; his perfect love for us eliminates all dread of what he might do to us. If we are afraid, it is for fear of what he might do to us and shows that we are not fully convinced that he really loves us. (1 John 4:16,18)

上帝爱我们的心,我们也知道、也信。上帝就是爱,住在爱里面的,就是住在上帝里面,上帝也住在他里面。爱里没有惧怕;爱既完全,就把惧怕除去,因为惧怕里含着刑罚。惧怕的人在爱里未得完全。

**Takeaway: His perfect love for us eliminates all dread of what he might do to us.

WHEN YOU FEEL WEAK, INCAPABLE
1/15

Three different times I begged God to make me well again. Each time he said, "No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people." Now I am glad to boast about how weak I am; I am glad to be a living demonstration of Christ's power, instead of showing off my own power and abilities.... When I am weak, then I am strong--the less I have, the more I depend on him. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10)

为这事,我三次求过主,叫这刺离开我。他对我说:“我的恩典够你用的,因为我的能力是在人的软弱上显得完全。”所以,我更喜欢夸自己的软弱,好叫基督的能力覆庇我。我为基督的缘故,就以软弱、凌辱、急难、逼迫、困苦为可喜乐的,因我什么时候软弱,什么时候就刚强了。

**Takeaway: When I am weak, then I am strong. The less I have, the more I depend on him.

Back

1/16

Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, he remains faithful to us and will help us, for he will always carry out his promises to us.... I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power. (2 Timothy 2:13; Philippians 4:13)

我们纵然失信,他仍是可信的,因为他不能背乎自己。我靠着那加给我力量的,凡事都能作。

Christ is not weak in his dealings with you but is a mighty power within you. His weak, human body died on the cross, but now he lives by the mighty power of God. We, too, are weak in our bodies, as he was, but now we live and are strong, as he is, and have all of God's power to ues.... Strong is your arm! Strong is your hand! Your right hand is lifted high in glorious strength. (2 Corinthians 13:3-4; Psalm 89:13)

基督在你们身上不是软弱的,在你们里面是有大能的。他因软弱被钉在十字架上,却因上帝的大能仍然活着。我们也是这样同他软弱,但因上帝向你们施的大能,也必与他同活。你有大能的膀臂,你的手有力,你的右手也高举。

**Takeaway: Christ is a mighty power within you. We have all of God's power to use.

In your strength I can scale any wall, attack any troop.... He fills me with strength and protects me wherever I go. He gives me the surefootedness of a mountain goat upon the crags. He leads me safely along the top of the cliffs. (Psalm 18:29,32-33)

我藉着你冲入敌军,藉着我的上帝跳过墙垣。惟有那以力量束我的腰,使我行为完全的,他是上帝。他使我的脚快如母鹿的蹄,又使我在高处安稳。

I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great his power is to help those who believe him. It is that same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in heaven. (Ephesians 1:19-20)

并知道他向我们这信的人所显的能力是何等浩大,就是照他在基督身上所运行的大能大力,使他从死里复活,叫他在天上坐在自己的右边。

**Takeaway: God's power to help those who believe him is that same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead.

By your power I can crush an army; by your strength I leap over a wall... He causes the good to walk a steady tread like mountain goats upon the rocks.... You have made wide steps for my feet, to keep them from slipping.... No wonder I give thanks to you, O Lord.... God can do what men can't! (2 Samuel 22:30,34-37,50; Luke 18:27)

我藉着你冲入敌军,藉着我的上帝跳过墙垣。你使我脚下的地步宽阔,我的脚未曾跌滑。耶和华啊,因此我要在外邦中称谢你,歌颂你的名。在人所不能的事,在上帝却能。

The Lord God is my strength; he will give me the speed of a deer and bring me safely over the mountains.... We never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our inner strength in the Lord is growing every day. (Habakkuk 3:19; 2 Corinthians 4:16)

WHEN YOU FEEL DISSATISFIED
1/22

Rich man! Proud man! Wise man! You must die like all the rest! You have no greater lease on life than foolish, stupid men. You must leave your wealth to others.... They cannot take it with them.... Lord, grant us peace; for all we have and are has come from you. (Psalm 49:10,14; Isaiah 26:12)

你看,愚昧无知的人死亡,智慧人也一样死去;他们都把钱财留给后代。耶和华啊,你必派定我们得平安,因为我们所做的事都是你给我们成就的。

The more lowly your serivce to others, the greater you are. To be the greatest, be a servant. But those who think themselves great shall be disappointed and humbled; and those who humble themselves shall be exalted. (Matthew 23:11-12)

你们中间谁为大,谁就要作你们的佣人。凡自高的,必降为卑;自卑的,必升为高。

**Takeaway: The more lowly your service to others, the greater you are.

There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world, so that we can take nothing out of it.... The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains. But as for you, man of God, shun all this; pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness. (1Timothy 6:6-7,10-11,NRSV)

然而,敬虔加上知足的心便是大利了;因为我们没有带什么到世上来,也不能带什么去。贪财是万恶之根。有人贪恋钱财,就被引诱离了真道,用许多愁苦把自己刺透了。但你这属上帝的人要逃避这些事,追求公义、敬虔、信心、爱心、忍耐、温柔。

**Takeaway: There is great gain in godliness with contentment.

They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of life that really is life. (1 Timothy 6:18-19, NRSV)

又要嘱咐他们行善,在好事上富足,甘心施舍,乐意供给人,为自己积成美好的根基,预备将来,叫他们持定那真正的生命。

**Takeaway: Be liberal and generous so you may take hold of the life that is life indeed.

Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own.... God's purpose in this was that we should praise God and give glory to him for doing these mighty things for us.... All you ... who... trusted Christ, were marked as belonging to Christ by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:4,12-13)

就如上帝从创立世界以前,在基督里拣选了我们,使我们在他面前成为圣洁,无有瑕疵。叫他的荣耀从我们这里首先在基督里有盼望的人可以得着称赞。你们既听见真理的道,就是那叫你们得救的福音,也信了基督,既然信他,就受了所应许的圣灵为印记。

**Takeaway: A Christian who doesn't amount to much in this world should be glad, for he is great in the Lord's sight.

All who humble themselves before the Lord shall be given every blessing and shall have wonderful peace.... It is better to have little and be godly than to own an evil man's wealth.... The Lord takes care of those he has forgiven.... Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing. (Psalm 37:11,16-17,34)

但谦卑人必承受地土,以丰盛的平安为乐。一个义人所有的虽少,强过许多恶人的富余。因为恶人的膀臂必被折断;但耶和华是扶持义人。你当等候耶和华,遵守他的道,他就抬举你,使你承受地土。

I said to myself, I'm going to quit complaining! I'll keep quiet, especially when the ungodly are around me. But as I stood there silently the turmoil within me grew to the bursting point. The more I mused, the hotter the fires inside. Then at last I spoke and pled with God: Lord, help me to realize how brief my time on earth will be. Help me to know that I am here for but a moment more.... Lord, I am speechless before you. I will not open my mouth to speak one word of complaint. (Psalm 39:1-4,9)

我说过:我要谨慎我的行为,不让我的舌头犯罪;作恶的人在我面前时,我要闭口不言。我静默,不发一言,连好话也不出口。但是我的痛苦更加剧烈;我心里充满焦虑。我越沉思越觉得不安,禁不住发问;上主啊,我的寿命多长?我几时会死?求你指示,我的终局几时来到?因我所遭遇的是出于你,我就默然不语。

**Takeaway: Lord, help me to realize how brief my time on earth will be.

Since we have such a huge crowd of men of faith watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us. Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor.... Think about his patience as sinful men did such terrible things to him. After all, you have never yet struggled against sin and temptation until you sweat great drops of blood. (Hebrews 12:1-4)

我们既有这许多的见证人,如同云彩围着我们,就当放下各样的重担,脱去容易缠累我们的罪,存心忍耐,奔那摆在我们前头的路程,仰望为我们信心创始成终的耶稣。他因那摆在前面的喜乐,就轻看羞辱,忍受了十字架的苦难,便坐在上帝宝座的右边。那忍受罪人这样顶撞的,你们要思想,免得疲倦灰心。你们与罪恶相争,还没有抵当到流血的地步。

**Takeaway: Let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us.
