標  題:願神在我們之間掌權

經  節:願你的國降臨;願你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。(馬太福音六章10節)

在天堂,神的旨意是惟一的重點。只要神發言,就有一群天使毫不質疑地立即回應祂的召喚。耶穌吩咐我們,要祈求神的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。這意思是說,神的旨意是我們的家庭、我們的事業、我們的學校、我們的教會,和我們的政府最重要的一環。

耶穌教導自己的門徒,要祈求神的旨意能暢通無阻地行在四周圍人們的身上。耶穌在示範如何禱告時,教導門徒分擔神的心。祂在客西馬尼園禱告時,再次示範如何分擔神的心意。祂禱告說:「……然而,不要照我的意思,只要照你的意思。」(馬太福音廿六:39)當我們在地上尋求神的國度,而不是追求自己的目標時,思想就會與天父一致。因著忠誠的祈禱,我們明白了神的心意,成為神的同工。

當你尋求主的旨意時,祂會引導你禱告。祂不但會邀請你禱告,當祂回應你的禱告時,祂也會邀請你添加祂的聖工。祈禱可以預備你,成為在地上實行神旨意的僕人。禱告求神開始在你的生命完全掌權,好讓神的旨意行在地上。然後,拭目以待神如何使用你,在其他人的身上拓展祂的王權。


May God Rule in Our Midst

"Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10)

In heaven, God’s will is the only priority. A word from God brings angels to do His bidding, immediately and without question. Jesus instructed us to pray that God would accomplish His will in our world in the same way. This means that God’s purposes would be preeminent in our homes, our businesses, our schools, our churches, and our governments.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray that God’s purposes be carried out in the world around them. In modeling how they should pray, Jesus was teaching His disciples how to share God’s heart. He demonstrated this again at Gethsemane when He prayed “Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will” (Matt. 26:39). It is as we seek God’s kingdom on earth, and not our own purposes, that we gain the same mind as our heavenly Father. We become colaborers with God by praying faithfully in agreement with His desires.

As you seek the Lord’s will, He will guide your praying. He will invite you not only to pray, but also to become involved in His activity as He answers your prayer. If He places a burden upon you to pray for an individual’s salvation, that burden is also His invitation to join His activity in that person’s life. Prayer will prepare you to be a servant through whom God can bring about His will on earth. Pray that the Lord’s absolute rule on earth will begin in your life. Then watch to see how God uses you to extend His Lordship to others.
