A.S.K.

馬太福音7:7-11_A.S.K.

7 你們祈求,就給你們;尋找,就尋見;叩門,就給你們開門。 8 因為凡祈求的,就得著;尋找的,就尋見;叩門的,就給他開門。 9 你們中間誰有兒子求餅,反給他石頭呢? 10 求魚,反給他蛇呢? 11 你們雖然不好,尚且知道拿好東西給兒女,何況你們在天上的父,豈不更把好東西給求他的人嗎?

在英文裡,祈求是ask, 尋找就是seek,叩門就是knock,這三個字的第一個字母加起來就是A.S.K.,也就是祈求詢問的意思。人在什麼情況下才會祈求,詢問呢?

幾天前我們談到不要為明天憂慮時,說到信徒之所以能不憂慮,不是因為自己很能幹,而是因為我們站在神的應許上,緊緊地抓住神的應許,所以我們有盼望,我們可以不憂慮。今天的經文便是神給我們的應許之一。當我們缺乏時,當我們困惑時,當我們碰到瓶頸時,自己的能力來到盡頭時,主耶穌說:「你們祈求,就給你們;尋找,就尋見;叩門,就給你們開門。 因為凡祈求的,就得著;尋找的,就尋見;叩門的,就給他開門。」

The Best Thing You Can Do When You’re In A Tough Situation

Hi GAMErs,

Today’s passage is 1 Kings 1:15-27.  Let’s go!

On verses 15-27:  In response to Adonijah’s actions to exalt himself as the next king, Bathsheba the mother of Solomon boldly gets into David’s presence (v15-16).  Bathsheba reminds David of his previous promise to make Solomon the next king (v17).  She explains how Adonijah has usurped the throne (v18-19), and she looks to David for an answer (v20).  Nathan enters while David and Bathsheba are talking (v22-23).  Nathan similarly lets David know about Adonijah’s actions and looks to the king for clarification on what’s going on (v24-27).
What can we learn from this?  There are three lessons I believe Holy Spirit taught me from this passage:

1. When you’re facing a tough situation, don’t declare war right away or try to solve things by yourself.
