419 絕不可能嗎?

約押雖然沒有歸從押沙龍,卻歸從了亞多尼雅。(王上二28

約押在大考驗中站得住,始終對大衛絕對效忠,沒有隨從那野心勃勃、欺世惑眾的押沙龍。但到了晚年,卻跟隨了貪鄙的亞多尼雅。所以要常常提高警覺;有一個人可以這樣倒退,眾人都有這倒退的可能(林前十13)。你過了大難關嗎?現在就要在最小的事上留心。那最不為人注意的小事,要懂得留心。

我們會很隨意的說:既然經過這樣大的考驗,就不會再回到世俗中去,留戀世事了。不要自以為知道試探的來源;最不可能發生的事,往往是最致命的。在一次重大的屬靈轉變過後,那隱而不露的試探就開始出現了;這不會很昭彰明顯,卻潛藏在那裡,若不警覺,就必把你絆倒。你在烈火的考驗下曾經持守純正,向神忠貞,如今卻要當心暗潮。但不必無病呻吟,內省自疚,對前途恐懼不前,只要保持警覺,在神面前有一種清晰能力。沒有防衛看守,力量就會變弱,那暗潮便會湧入,叫防守崩陷。聖經人物很多都在優點上失敗,而不是在弱點上。

 “蒙神能力保守”——這是唯一安全之方。

祈禱主啊,今天我要奉你的名講道;求你使它借著你的能力而發放。使我的靈魂確實認識你,讓我在所有深入和終極的意義上只專注於你。


April 19 Is It Not In The Least Likely?

 “For Joab had turned after Adonijah, though he turned not after Absalom.” 1 Kings 2:28

Joab stood the big test, he remained absolutely loyal and true to David and did not turn after the fascinating and ambitious Absalom, but yet towards the end of his life he turned after the craven Adonijah. Always remain alert to the fact that where one man has gone back is exactly where any one may go back (see 1 Cor. 10:13). You have gone through the big crisis, now be alert over the least things; take into calculation the “retired sphere of the leasts.”

We are apt to say – “It is not in the least likely that having been through the supreme crisis, I shall turn now to the things of the world.” Do not forecast where the temptation will come, it is the least likely thing that is the peril. In the aftermath of a great spiritual transaction the “retired sphere of the leasts” begins to tell; it is not dominant, but remember it is there, and if you are not warned, it will trip you up. You have remained true to God under great and intense trials, now beware of the undercurrent. Do not be morbidly introspective, looking forward with dread, but keep alert; keep your memory bright before God. Unguarded strength is double weakness because that is where the “retired sphere of the leasts” saps. The Bible characters fell on their strong points, never on their weak ones.

 “Kept by the power of God” – that is the only safety.
