《今日靈修默想》:「要常常喜樂;不住地禱告;凡事謝恩,因為這是神在基督耶穌裡向你們所定的旨意。」(帖前5:16-18)

默想一:你的生活裡喜樂多還是埋怨多?常常喜樂有可能嗎?這全在乎你喜樂的泉源從哪裡來。看環境、依靠人、仗著錢財、仰賴名利是靠不住的,唯有信靠那位能拯救我們的主耶穌基督,因在祂裡面有說不出來、滿有榮光的大喜樂。

默想二:常常喜樂、不住地禱告與凡事謝恩有關聯嗎?是的。我們能常常喜樂,因為再大的困難,我們都可藉著禱告交託給主。在耶穌裡沒有任何事是祂不知道的;在耶穌裡沒有任何困難是祂不能解決的。既然在神沒有難成的事,當然我們大可放心並凡事謝恩。

禱告:感謝神,因袮在基督耶穌裡向我們所定的旨意就是要常常喜樂。今天我無論處在挫折或順利,蒙福或遭難,平安或危險,健康或疾病,但我相信袮的旨意是要我在這一切的經歷中,學習凡事感恩。求聖靈光照,讓我成為懂得感恩的人,也成為別人的喜樂。禱告奉主耶穌的名,阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Th 5:16-18)

Meditation one: Do you have more joys or have more grumbles in your everyday life? Is it possible to rejoice always? It all depends on where the source of your joy comes from.  It is not reliable to depend on the environment, to count on people, to rely on wealth, or to hinge on fame and fortune. The only way is to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who can save us, because in Him there is filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.

Meditation two: Is there any relevance among rejoicing always, praying continually, and giving thanks in all circumstances? Yes, we can rejoice always, because no matter how great the difficulty is, we can always entrust to the Lord through prayer. Nothing in Jesus is something He does not know, and there is no hurdle in Jesus that He cannot overcome. Since there is nothing too hard for God, of course we can rest assured and give thanks in all circumstances.

Prayer: Thank God, because Your will for us in Jesus Christ is to rejoice always. Today, no matter whether I am in frustration or prosperity, blessed or hardship, peace or danger, health or sickness, I trust that Your will is, through all these events, to allow me to learn to give thanks in all circumstances. May the Holy Spirit enlighten me so that I can be a grateful person and bring joy to others. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
