破.立 Break.Build:

1.  停下來. 靜一靜
2.  等候主. 深呼吸經歷主之平安. 呼出你的憂慮

1.  思想你最近使你開心歡笑的時刻
2.  為那些時刻及有關的人感恩
3.  敞開心懷讚美主

來 啊 , 我 們 要 向 耶 和 華 歌 唱 , 向 拯 救 我 們 的 磐 石 歡 呼 !
 我 們 要 來 感 謝 他 , 用 詩 歌 向 他 歡 呼 !

                  詩篇 95:1 -2                        

1.  求聖靈在你生命中工作
      "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔,
        求主幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:

聆聽主話 (申命記 7:7-26)

21 你 不 要 因 他 們 驚 恐 , 因 為 耶 和 華 ─ 你 神 在 你 們 中 間 是 大 而 可 畏 的 神 。
22 耶 和 華 ─ 你 神 必 將 這 些 國 的 民 從 你 面 前 漸 漸 趕 出 ; 你 不 可 把 他 們 速 速 滅 盡 , 恐 怕 野 地 的 獸 多 起 來 害 你 。
23 耶 和 華 ─ 你 神 必 將 他 們 交 給 你 , 大 大 的 擾 亂 他 們 , 直 到 他 們 滅 絕 了 ;

                                      申命 7:21-23

現在讓你有一段安靜的時間, 給聖靈一個空間, 讓主耶穌可能以藉着你剛才讀過的經文, 對你說話:

        Yesterday's passage God talks about how the Israelites should destroy those things against God and how we should destroy and breakdown those lifestyle against God. Today, God talks about the breakdown is "little by little". Is there any contradiction? 

讓我們聽聽 John Goldingay 教授的教導: 
     In an agonized e-mail I received from a friend, she described herself as constantly frustrated by the fact that she is not as mature as she thinks she should be. "Why do I go back to fighting the same old battles in my spiritual life instead of newer ones? Why, after dying a million deaths to something, am I still not dead and done with it?" She had imagined that as a growing Christian, she would be done with a certain thing, such as anger or pride, and would face other, different types of things to fight and overcome ..

     There has been all that talk about God's expelling the Canaanites from the country and giving it to Israel, but in reality the Canaanites were alive and well for centuries after Moses' day. How were the Israelites to make sense of it? The close of chapter 7 offers one answer, picking up a declaration God already made at Sinai(Exodus 23:29-30). Making the Canaanites disappear only gradually is a strange kind of mercy. 

John Goldingay. Numbers & Deuteronomy for Everyone. Louisville,KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2010, p.125-126.

     Just like how the Israelites destroy and breakdown all those against God, we have to admit that our destroying and breaking down all those bad habits, lifestyles, characters would mostly be "little by little". Don't be discouraged if you think it is too little, too slow to change. But, don't cheat yourself that what you can do is "little by little' and that is what you learn from Deuteronomy 7.

     Yes, little by little you are more and more closer to Jesus. Then, little by little you change. Changing, renewal of lifestyle and character is a lifelong journey. But, have you start that "little" step already? Or, are you stuck or even going backward? 

Help us to be more and more closer to you so that we can start this "little by little" spiritual journey to be more like you. 奉主耶穌基督名求, 阿們。

1. Do you agree that changing of lifestyle and character is not easy? Can you figure out why it is so difficult?  

2. Have you start the "little" step to change because you are willing to destroy and breakdown some of your bad lifestyle, habit and character?
