260靈修 Oct 22, 2012 以賽亞書 Isaiah 40:21-31

第四十章
21你們豈不曾知道嗎?你們豈不曾聽見嗎?從起初豈沒有人告訴你
們嗎?自從立地的根基,你們豈沒有明白嗎?22神坐在地球大圈之
上,地上的居民好像蝗蟲。他鋪張穹蒼如幔子,展開諸天如可住的
帳棚。23他使君王歸於虛無,使地上的審判官成為虛空。24他們是
剛才栽上(註:“剛才”或作“不曾”。下同),剛才種上,根也
剛才扎在地裡;他一吹在其上,便都枯乾,旋風將他們吹去,像碎
秸一樣。25那聖者說:“你們將誰比我,叫他與我相等呢?26你們
向上舉目,看誰創造這萬象,按數目領出,他一一稱其名,因他的
權能,又因他的大能大力,連一個都不缺。”27雅各啊,你為何
說“我的道路向耶和華隱藏”?以色列啊,你為何言“我的冤屈神
並不查問”?28你豈不曾知道嗎?你豈不曾聽見嗎?永在的神耶和
華,創造地極的主,並不疲乏,也不困倦,他的智慧無法測度。
29疲乏的,他賜能力;軟弱的,他加力量。30就是少年人也要疲乏
困倦,強壯的也必全然跌倒;31但那等候耶和華的,必從新得力。
他們必如鷹展翅上騰,他們奔跑卻不困倦,行走卻不疲乏。

默想:
1.若是天氣容許,在公園或戶外的場所找一個安靜的角落。用你
創意性的想像力與主相約、與神相遇。

2.請參考第1頁有關禱讀操練方式——“誦讀聖言”,試著將這
個方式用上面所載每日的260 靈修上。
安靜——閱讀/聆聽——默想——禱告——默觀/安歇主懷

3.在閱讀默想今天的經文時,有哪個字或詞句特別觸動你的?當
你讀到這個字或詞句時,你有什麼感受?這與你的現況有什麼
關連沒有?神想要你做什麼?

4.有什麼“偶像”(例:錢財、權力或性)是你在心情沮喪憂慮
時,會用來得安慰的? 向神認罪,求祂釋放你能夠自由地順
服祂今日給你的話語。以28-31節作為你對神的禱告。
禱告與筆錄:繼續安靜在神面前,與神對話,並聆聽祂對我說的
話。將心中的思想(心得),或是與神的禱告,記錄在「靈程筆記
簿」上面。

The Second Book of Isaiah -- Book of Deliverance
Chapter 40
21 Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from
the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like
a tent to live in.23 He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this
world to nothing.24 No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no
sooner do they take root in the ground,than he blows on them and they wither,
and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
25 “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy
One.26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?He
who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.27
Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel,“My way is hidden from
the Lord; my cause is disregarded by my God”?28 Do you not know? Have
you not heard?The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the
earth.He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.30
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;31 but
those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.They will soar on wings
like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.

Meditation:
1.If the weather permits, find a quiet spot in a park or an outdoor location.
Use your creative imagination to meet God today.

2.Refer to page ? on Lectio Divina and try to implement it as you read
through the above passage.
Silence – Read/Listen – Meditate – Pray – Contemplate

3.What is the word or phrase that touches you today as you read and
meditate on this passage? What is your emotion as you read this
word or phrase? How is that related to your current situation? What
does God tell you to do?

4.What “idols” (for instance, money, power or sex) do you use as a
source of comfort for your fears? Confess your sin to God and ask
him to free you to obey his word for you today. Make your prayer
to the Lord based on verses 28-31.

Prayer & Journaling: Stay with God for a little longer. Continue to converse
with God and listen to what he wants to tell me. Then write down
any thought and/or prayer in the 2012 “Spiritual Journal” book.
