211 你對神的盼望弱如垂死?

堅心倚賴你的,你必保守他十分平安。(堅心倚賴:有把心思意念寄放在神身上的意思。)(賽二十六3

你的想像力是停留在神身上,還是逐漸衰退消失?叫主工人生命枯槁衰竭最主要的原因,就是缺乏想像力。你若從來未運用想像力來到神面前,現在就開始吧。老等神來是無濟于事的,你必須把想像力從偶像的臉上轉移到神身上,以致得救。想像力是神給我們最大的恩賜,理當全然獻給他。你若已經將所有的心思奪回,順服基督,當試煉臨到,你的信心就有了寶貴的資産,因爲你可以與神的靈同心同工。要學習把一切合神心意的思想,同自然界所發生的事聯繫起來——太陽的出沒,日月星辰的運轉,四時的變換。這樣,你的想像力就不會受別的影響,而是受神的支配,爲神而用。

“我們和我們的列祖犯罪……忘記了……”——這樣就要放一把匕首在你沉睡的地方(意即枕戈待旦,不眠不休的等候神)。“神現時不和我說話”,但其實他是時常和我說話的。要記住你是屬誰,你事奉的是誰。挑起回憶,你愛神的心勢必增添十倍。你的想像力也不再呆滯,而是變得活潑、熱切;你的盼望也必光輝燦爛不可言狀了。

祈禱◆噢,主啊,隨著自然界春天的來臨,我的靈渴望你那旺盛的生命力能流進我的生命,不住不住地涌流。然而,我是何其醜陋、何其不像基督!不過,這幷非情緒低落的感受,而是我在奇异的盼望中看見這情G。


February 11 Is Your Hope In GOD Faint And Dying?

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee.” Isaiah 26:3 (R. V. marg.)

Is your imagination stayed on God or is it starved? The starvation of the imagination is one of the most fruitful sources of exhaustion and sapping in a worker's life. If you have never used your imagination to put yourself before God, begin to do it now. It is no use waiting for God to come; you must put your imagination away from the face of idols and look unto Him and be saved. Imagination is the greatest gift God has given us and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. If you have been bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, it will be one of the greatest assets to faith when the time of trial comes, because your faith and the Spirit of God will work together. Learn to associate ideas worthy of God with all that happens in Nature – the sunrises and the sunsets, the sun and the stars, the changing seasons, and your imagination will never be at the mercy of your impulses, but will always be at the service of God.

We have sinned with our fathers; . . . and have forgotten” – then put a stiletto in the place where you have gone to sleep. “God is not talking to me just now,” but He ought to be. Remember Whose you are and Whom you serve. Provoke yourself by recollection, and your affection for God will increase tenfold; your imagination will not be starved any longer, but will be quick and enthusiastic, and your hope will be inexpressibly bright.
