Take a Step 邁出一步

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. Faith is the belief that God will do what is right. My translation of the first few verses of Matthew, Chapter 5 say, “Blessed are the dirt-poor, nothing-to-give, trapped-in-a-corner, destitute, diseased,” and Jesus said, “for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

信心不是指相信神會使你心想事成,信心是說我們相信神會做正確的事。我如此翻譯馬太福音第五章:那些一貧如洗的人有福了,沒有東西可以給人、被困住在角落的人、貧困、生病的人有福了,因為耶穌說,因為天國是他們的。

God says the more hopeless your circumstance, the more likely your salvation.  The greater your cares, the more genuine your prayers. Healing begins when we depend on Him. God’s help is near and always available, but it’s only given to those who seek it. Compared to God’s part, our part is minuscule but necessary.

神說你的環境看起來越沒有希望,你越有可能得救。你越在意某些事物,你的禱告便會更加真切。當我們開始倚靠神的時候,也就是開始痊癒的時候。神的幫助總是在我們旁邊,並且祂能隨時幫助,但是祂的幫助只給那些肯尋求祂的人。跟神所做的比較,我們做的簡直微不足道,卻是必要的。

Ask forgiveness. Call a counselor. Confess. Call mom. Visit a doctor. Feed a hungry person. Pray. Teach. Go. Do something that demonstrates faith. For faith with no effort is no faith at all. God will respond.  He has never rejected a genuine gesture of faith.  Never!

就像饒恕、找人輔導、懺悔、打電話給母親、或去看醫生、給一個饑餓的人食物、禱告、教導,等等。去吧,做一些事來表現你的信心。因為信心沒有行為是死的。神會回應,祂從來不會拒絕真誠的祈禱,從來不會!
