每日金句

巴兰见耶和华喜欢赐福与以色列……

—民 24:1

Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel…

—Numbers 24:1

摩押王要求巴兰咒诅以色列,但是巴兰却做不到,因为他只能够按照神的意思说祝福的话。在这段经文中,我们看到他祝福以色列民,愿他们像水源充足的园子那样兴旺。

有时候我们需要思想一下神在各方面对我们的祝福;就是在伤痛中,我们仍然有很多足以感恩神的祝福。在这里,我向大家提供一个方法,就是用BLESS(祝福)这个英文字来数算神给我们的祝福(取材自Alvin Vander Griend, HarvestPrayer.com):

B代表Body(身体)。感谢神赐我们健康的身体,我们能够行走、奔跑、游戏、呼吸、思想。我们为那些不能享受这些福气的人祷告。L代表Labor(劳力)。我们为满足我们需要的工作和收入赞美神,又为雇主和一起工作的同事感谢神。E代表Emotions(情感)。我们为喜乐、平安、满足 …… 等等感受感谢神。S代表Social(社交)。我们的一些社交关系也是我们的祝福。感谢神赐我们父母、祖父母、兄弟姊妹、儿女、朋友和与教会会友的关系。S代表Spiritual(灵命)。我们为在基督里得到的救赎恩典感谢神,又为赦免、祷告、圣灵的恩赐和永生的盼望感谢神。

惟愿我们每一个人都能这样说:“赞美真神,万福之源。”

The king of Moab wanted Balaam to curse Israel, but he couldn't. Balaam could only speak blessings as the Lord gave him words to say. In this passage we find that he blessed Israel by saying that they would flourish like a well-watered garden.

It's important to occasionally think about all the ways God has blessed us. Even when life hurts, we have many blessings to thank God for. Here's a way to use the word BLESS to count our blessings (­adapted from Alvin Vander Griend, HarvestPrayer.com):

B is for body. Thank God for physical health and the ability to walk, run, play, breathe, and think. Pray for people who can't enjoy these things.
L is for labor. Praise God for jobs and income that help to meet your needs. Thank God for your employer and the people you work with.
E is for emotions. Thank God for joy, peace, contentment, and more.
S is for social. We are blessed with relationships. Thank God for parents, grandparents, siblings, children, friends, and all relationships in the church.
S is for spiritual. Thank God for all the gifts of salvation in Christ. Praise God for forgiveness, prayer, the gift of the Holy Spirit, and the hope of eternal life.

May each of us learn to say, "Praise God, from whom all blessings flow."

祷告 · Prayer
