   "天父,求你使我今天活在你的同在中,你一天比一天更喜悦我。
    主耶穌,求你使我今天能背起我的十字架去跟隨你。
    聖靈,求你在今天充滿我,使你的果子能彰顯在我的生命中: 仁愛,喜樂,和平,忍耐,恩慈,良善,信實,温柔及節制。"
             

親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌
 
今日親親親爸父經文連結: http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
親親爸父經文:(詩篇 124:1-5; 撒母耳記下 17:1-29; 約翰福音 19:23-42; 箴言 16:12-13)  

     以 色 列 人 要 說 : 若 不 是 耶 和 華 幫 助 我 們 ,

若 不 是 耶 和 華 幫 助 我 們 , 當 人 起 來 攻 擊 我 們 、

向 我 們 發 怒 的 時 候 , 就 把 我 們 活 活 地 吞 了 。

那 時 , 波 濤 必 漫 過 我 們 , 河 水 必 淹 沒 我 們 ,

狂 傲 的 水 必 淹 沒 我 們 。

詩篇 124:1-5


現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。

 
 日我從主耶穌領受的主題是: 若不是神幫助我們,我們早被活活地吞了!

今日的詩篇 124 表達了詩人對神完全的信心,知道若不是有神幫助,那些狂傲的敵人會有如海潚一樣活活地吞了我們!

今日撒母耳記下的經文描述大衛被自己最信任的參謀長及好朋友亞希多弗出賣,亞希多弗是一個極有智慧及策略的人,但他亦是在大衞因色自迷的情况下不為意亞希多弗對大衞懷恨的人,因為根㯫撒母耳記下23:34他是以蓮的父親,而撒母耳記下11:3大衞搶妻殺夫的拔士巴是以蓮的女兒,所以亞希多弗是拔士巴的祖父,是所羅門的曾祖父,此人處心積慮,早已想一有機會便除去大衛

如果神不接納大衞的認罪悔攻,在有如地震海潚的危難中奇妙地使押沙龍不接納亞希多弗的必勝殺大衞的策略,而接受大衞派來的臥底户篩救大衞的獻計,大衞一定被消滅,結果是惡人押沙龍和亞希多弗被消滅!

你相信神一定會在你的困境中有如幫助大衞一樣的幫助你嗎?

     親愛的主耶穌
    求你讓我們相信你一定會在我們的困境中有如幫助大衞一樣的幫助我們奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。


 省察問題 
 1. 你聽到亞希多弗的故事,對你有何啓發?

 2. 你的下一步是什麼行動?
   

     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。


If you have not been on our side, they would have swallowed us alive!

Bible in one year by Nicky Gumbel:

Nicky Gumbel's Bible in one year today:
https://preview.mailerlite.com/z9v6l3a2q7/1961367097254615241/k7e7/

Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people
3.   Sing a song to praise God (you are welcome to use "Father, I adore you" which I have been singing every morning for the past 20 years or your own choice to praise God)

          Father, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Jesus, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Spirit, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
      

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:


     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”



2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sins to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

3.  John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

(Please click this link to see how God used John Stott to change my life:https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/07/

           "Heavenly Father, I pray that this day I may live in your presence and please you more and more.

             Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.

             Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."


    
    The link to today's Time with Abba passages:   http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
    Time with Abba passages: (Psalm 124:1-5, 2 Samuel 17:1-29; John 19:23-42; Proverbs 16:12-13)

    Today's key passage: 

   If the Lord had not been on our side—
    let Israel say—
if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

Psalm 124:1-5


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time to Jesus as you listen to Him. 
   
     My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus isIf you have not been on our side, they would have swallowed us alive!

    Today's Psalm 124 shows the total trust of David on God. Yes, he would have been swallowed by his enemies!

    Today's 2 Samuel records how David was being betrayed by Ahithophel and is not for Abasalom not to listen to him but listened to Hushai, David would have been killed. According to 2 Samuel 23:34 Ahithophel was the father of Eliam and according to 2 Samuel 11:3 Eliam was the father of Bethsheba! David killed Ahithophel's granddaughter's husband! That's why Ahithophel planned to have his revenge on David but David was not aware of that. If God had not received David's repentance, David would have been destroyed by Ahithophel's strategy to Abasalom.

    Do you believe that God will help you in you calamity as he helped David?


     Dear Lord Jesus,  
 Help us to have a total trust in you that you will help us as you helped David. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
       
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration has you got from Ahithophel's downfall ?
     

     
      2.  What is your next step to make that happen?

      Family Corner:
     Find an opportunity to share with your family the importance of today's message.

親親爸父經文:(詩篇 123:1-4; 撒母耳記下 15:23-16:23; 約翰福音 18:25-19:22; 箴言 16:10-11)  

     坐 在 天 上 的 主 啊 , 我 向 你 舉 目 。
看 哪 , 僕 人 的 眼 睛 怎 樣 望 主 人 的 手 , 使 女 的 眼 睛 怎 樣 望 主 母 的 手 , 我 們 的 眼 睛 也 照 樣 望 耶 和 華 ─ 我 們 的 神 , 直 到 他 憐 憫 我 們 。
耶 和 華 啊 , 求 你 憐 憫 我 們 , 憐 憫 我 們 ! 因 為 我 們 被 藐 視 , 已 到 極 處 。
我 們 被 那 些 安 逸 人 的 譏 誚 和 驕 傲 人 的 藐 視 , 已 到 極 處 。
詩篇 123:1-4

現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。

 
 日我從主耶穌領受的主題是: 主啊,我們望着你的手,求你憐憫,求你出手救我們!

今日的詩篇 123 表達了一個被人藐視及譏誚到極處的人之痛苦心境,正如今日撒母耳記下的經文描述大衛被自己最信任的謀士長及好朋友亞希多弗出賣,被自己心愛的兒子追殺之痛苦心境,及今日約翰福音的經文描述耶穌被釘十字架時所受的藐視及譏誚到極處之痛苦心境。

過去二年影响全世界的疫情及今年發生的烏克蘭危機都是使人明白到人能力的有限,唯有好像今日詩篇的祈禱一樣向主呼求:

主啊,我們望着你的手,求你憐憫,求你出手救我們!

想想你要多近才望到主的手?


親愛的主耶穌
求你讓我們願意緊靠你,靠近到可以望到你的
,使我們能得到你的憐憫與拯救,奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。 

    省察問題 
 1. 你如何能在苦難中認識到人力的有限,懂得近距離的望着主的手向主呼求,求主出手救你?

 2. 你的下一步是什麼行動?
   
   
     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。


人的幫助是枉然的,倚靠神才得施展大能!
