標  題:你親眼去看

經  節:我從前風聞有你,現在親眼看見你。(約伯記四十二章5節)

約伯在他的時代是全地最正直的人。他十分敬虔,以至於主很高興地把他指給撒但看(約伯記一:8)。然而,縱然約伯是如此深愛神,並且殷勤地順服神的命令,他還是沒能完全瞭解神。神曾經賜予約伯的祝福,並沒有啟示出神所有的本性。約伯非得經歷一些逆境,才能理解神的某些特質。所以,主允許撒但用痛苦來試驗約伯。

雖然約伯失去所有,包括七個兒女,約伯發現神仍然與自己同在。雖然他面對最困難及令人困惑不解、難以想像的磨難,他領悟到神的智慧遠遠超過自己的聰明(約伯記四十二:14)。當約伯忍受那些感受遲鈍之友的質問時,他學習到,神是惟一完全可信賴的。約伯從極度痛苦中更深地認識神。最後,他承認自己過去風聞神,而今親眼見神(約伯記四十二:5)。

當你在落在試煉中,神會向你顯示自己的特性,是你從未看過的一面。你會經歷到祂大能的同在安慰你。就像約伯一樣,你會學習到,即使每個人遺棄你,神仍不離開你。當祂帶你經過黑暗的時刻,你會更認識神。於是,你會親身體驗到神的特質,是你過去所風聞的。


Seeing with Your Eyes

I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. (Job 42:5)

In his time, Job was the most righteous person on earth. He was so godly that the Lord took pleasure in pointing him out to Satan (Job 1:8). Yet, despite his love for God and his diligent obedience to His commands, even Job had not fully come to know God. The blessings God had given to Job had not revealed everything about God’s character. There were characteristics that Job would come to realize only through adversity. So the Lord allowed Satan to test Job through suffering.

Although Job lost everything he had, even his seven children, Job discovered that God was still with him. Though he faced the most difficult and bewildering tribulations imaginable, Job came to understand that God was infinitely wiser than he (Job 42:1–4). As Job endured the insensitivity of his friends, he learned that God is the only One who is absolutely trustworthy. Job learned much about God through his anguish. Finally, he confessed that at first he had only heard about God, but now, through his suffering, he had come to see God (Job 42:5).

When you are in the midst of your trials, your Lord will reveal His character to you in ways you never knew. You will experience His strong and comforting presence. Like Job, you will learn that your Lord will remain, even when everyone else abandons you. You will see God more clearly as He takes you through the dark times. Then you will experience God in ways you had previously only heard about from others.
