218 抗拒絕望的動力

起來,我們走吧。(太二十六46

門徒該儆醒的時候,珘庰菑F。當我們發現自己這個樣子,就失望灰心。事情既無可追悔,就很容易沮喪說:“事到如今,再無挽回的餘地了。”我們若認爲這樣的沮喪是不經常的,那就錯了,這實在是司空見慣的人生經歷。當我們醒覺自己錯過了大好的行事機會,勢必沉溺在失望之中,耶穌基督說:“安睡吧,機會失去不再回來,也無法挽回。但起來吧,百尺竿頭,更進一步。”

讓過去的事消逝吧!只要消逝在主的胸懷堙F然後與他一同迎接不可抗拒的未來。在各自的人生中,我們都有這樣的經驗——陷在頽唐沮喪中。這種沮喪是從現實而來,我們無法自拔。這堛顳{做了無可饒恕的事,就是沒有與耶穌一同警醒,反而睡著了。但他珛馱岩L們對抗沮喪的動力——“起來,行下一步吧。”我們有了神的感動,下一步該是什麽?完全信靠他,在他救贖的憑據上禱告。

千萬別讓失敗的意識阻礙你新的行動。

祈禱◆主啊,一份茫然的孤寂感似乎圍繞著我的生命,它是那樣的模糊不清,令我難以將它說明。我沒有下過錯誤的貝w,因爲我已經按照你所指示的去行,但那種不肯定的感覺珒坐坐ㄔh。求你抹去這片迷蒙的雲霧,將它變成帶著秩序和形式的青天。


February 18 The Initiative Against Despair

Rise, let us be going.” Matthew 26:46

The disciples went to sleep when they should have kept awake, and when they realized what they had done it produced despair. The sense of the irreparable is apt to make us despair, and we say – “It is all up now, it is no use trying any more.” If we imagine that this kind of despair is exceptional, we are mistaken, it is a very ordinary human experience. Whenever we realize that we have not done that which we had a magnificent opportunity of doing, then we are apt to sink into despair; and Jesus Christ comes and says – “Sleep on now, that opportunity is lost for ever, you cannot alter it, but arise and go to the next thing.” Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ, and go out into the irresistible future with Him.

There are experiences like this in each of our lives. We are in despair, the despair that comes from actualities, and we cannot lift ourselves out of it. The disciples in this instance had done a downright unforgivable thing; they had gone to sleep instead of watching with Jesus, but He came with a spiritual initiative against their despair and said – “Arise and do the next thing.” If we are inspired of God, what is the next thing? To trust Him absolutely and to pray on the ground of His Redemption.

Never let the sense of failure corrupt your new action.
