標  題:卸去憂慮

經  節:你們要將一切的憂慮卸給神,因為祂顧念你們。(彼得前書五章7節)

你早已發現,作基督徒並不能夠解決你的問題。然而,成為一個基督徒給了你一位辯護律師。彼得說這些話的對象,是一群正面對迫害的基督徒。他們不知道自己可以相信誰,朋友、鄰居或家人都有可能出賣他們,讓他們肉體受折磨,甚至死亡。但是,彼得曾經與那復活的基督同行,他親身經歷過耶穌對門徒的愛。他知道基督已掌權,能夠管理任何試煉。他願意如此行,來表達他的愛。

卸去憂慮是個選擇。它的意思是有意識地將自己的憂慮交給神,並且讓祂擔負起問題的重擔。有時候,這是信任神最難的一步!我們不願意交托問題的責任,因為我們一直被教導自食其力是值得稱讚的。我們甚至可能享受憂慮!然而,倘若真要從憂慮的重擔中釋放出來,一定要把它們卸在天父強壯的手中。

彼得並沒有去分辨小煩惱或是大憂慮。神也沒有區分哪些是我們可以處理的小問題、哪些是祂才能處理的大問題。祂要我們將一切的憂慮卸給祂。我們所犯的最大錯誤,就是假定我們能夠靠自己處理問題。但終究我們會發現,靠自己真的甚麼也做不成。

在神眼中,你是個軟弱的孩子,擔負著超過自己能力所能承受的重負。祂預備好等著為你擔負重擔,你願意讓祂幫助你嗎?


Casting Your Cares

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

As you’ve no doubt discovered, becoming a Christian does not make your problems go away. But it does give you an Advocate to whom you can take every concern. The Christians Peter addressed were facing persecution. They did not know whom they could trust; a friend, a neighbor, or even a family member could betray them, resulting in suffering and even death. But Peter had walked with the risen Christ, and he had personally experienced the love that Jesus had for His followers. He knew that Christ was in control, capable of handling every trial and that He wanted to do so as an expression of His love.

Casting our cares is a choice. It means consciously handing over our anxiety to Christ and allowing Him to carry the weight of our problems. At times this is the most difficult part of trusting God! We don’t like turning over the responsibility for our problems. We have been taught that self-reliance is good and praiseworthy. We may even enjoy worrying. Yet if we are to be freed from the burden of our concerns, we must choose to cast them into the strong hands of our Father.

Peter does not distinguish between little cares and big cares. God does not differentiate between problems we should handle on our own and God-sized needs. He asks us to turn them all over to Him. One of our greatest errors is to assume we can deal with something ourselves, only to discover that we really can’t.

God sees you as His frail child, burdened with a load that surpasses your strength. He stands prepared to take your load and to carry it for you. Will you let Him?
