418 常作準備

……呼叫說……他說,我在這裡。(出三4

神說話的時候,我們卻像在五里霧中,毫無反應。摩西的回答,表示他站在某一崗位上。常作準備的意思,就是與神有正常的關係,又知道自己目前所站的崗位。我們往往很急切地告訴神,我們想到哪裡去。但那對神工作常作準備的人,呼召一臨到,他們就奪得獎賞。我們總是等待特別的時機、特別的激情,當這臨到,我們就會迅速回答:我在這裡。耶穌基督被高舉上升,我們就願意與他一同上升;但對不為人所知的任務,我們往往不準備承擔。

為神常作準備的意思,就是事無大小,我們都樂意去做。我們行事沒有選擇的餘地;不論神的計劃怎樣,我們都樂於遵循。無論什麼任務臨到,我們聽見神的聲音,如同我們的主聽見他父的聲音一樣。我們當存著活潑的愛,作好充分準備,隨時待命而發。父怎樣對待耶穌基督,他也盼望父照樣對待我們。他可以任意差遣我們,叫我們承擔愉快的任務,或卑微的任務;因為我們與主合一,正如父與主合一一樣。叫他們合而為一,像我們一樣。

要隨時準備神突然來訪。一個常作準備的人是不必再作準備的了。試想想神呼召我們後,我們花多少時間去作準備!那火燒的荊棘,正象徵一個常作準備的心靈四周的景象,有神的同在,火燒得更熊。

祈禱噢,主啊,最能夠感受你的,可能就是我自己,願你的旨意能毫無障礙地在我裡面並透過我得以成就。


April 18 Readiness

 “God called unto him and he said, Here am I” Exodus 3:4

When God speaks, many of us are like men in a fog, we give no answer. Moses’ reply revealed that he was somewhere. Readiness means a right relationship to God and a knowledge of where we are at present. We are so busy telling God where we would like to go. The man or woman who is ready for God and His work is the one who carries off the prize when the summons comes. We wait with the idea of some great opportunity, something sensational, and when it comes we are quick to cry – “Here am I.” Whenever Jesus Christ is in the ascendant, we are there, but we are not ready for an obscure duty.

Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference. We have no choice in what we want to do, whatever God’s programme may be we are there, ready. When any duty presents itself we hear God’s voice as Our Lord heard His Father’s voice, and we are ready for it with all the alertness of our love for Him. Jesus Christ expects to do with us as His Father did with Him. He can put us where He likes, in pleasant duties or in mean duties, because the union is that of the Father and Himself. “That they may be one, even as We are one.”

Be ready for the sudden surprise visits of God. A ready person never needs to get ready. Think of the time we waste trying to get ready when God has called! The burning bush is a symbol of everything that surrounds the ready soul, it is ablaze with the presence of God.
