The presence of God 神的同在

There are times: 有那麼些時候:

We wish for someone to walk with us but the person can’t be found.
We forget God is walking with us.
我們希望人生旅途有人能與我們同行,卻找不著可以一直跟我們同行的人;
我們忘了神一直與我們同行。

We wish someone could understand us, but the person can’t be found.
We forgot God knows us.
我們希望有人瞭解我們,但找不著那個知心的;
我們忘了神最瞭解我們。

We wish someone can enjoy something with us and they have the same degree of joy as we have, but the person can’t be found.
We forget God is watching over us and our pleasure is from His pleasure.
當我們享受著某種情境時,我們希望有人可以一起享受、且有相同程度的感受,但我們找不到那個人;
我們忘了神一直看顧著我們,我們的快樂來自於祂的快樂。

We wish someone could share with us when we see (hear, or perceive) something magnificent, but the person can’t be found.
We forget God is seeing (hearing or perceiving) with us, because our perception is from Him
當我們發現驚奇時,我們希望有個人分享那所看見的(聽見的或感覺到的),我們卻找不到那個人;
我們忘了我們的視覺來自於神,神也看見了、聽見了,也知道我們的感受。

We wish someone could do something with us and explore with us, but the person can’t be found.
We forget God sustains our power to do whatever and He always is with us in everything we do.
我們希望有人陪伴我們作某件事,一起跟我們探索,但我們找不著那個人;
我們忘了在每件事上,神都給我們力量,給我們力量的同時,祂陪伴著我們也與我們一起探索。

When we were in pain, we wish someone could give us comfort or just keep us company, but the person can’t be found.
We forget God is comforting us and is ready to release our pain.
We aren’t aware God is there, because we are caged in the self-prison. We do not realize we can’t receive the help unless we open the door (heart).
我們有苦時,希望有人能安慰或陪伴我們一起度過那個苦,卻找不到那個人;
我們忘了神一直是在安慰我們的,也隨時要幫助我們脫離苦。只是我們被自我給蒙蔽了,沒有意識到「感受不到救助,是因為我們把自己的心深鎖住,鎖在那自己幻想出來的牢籠中。」

When we are in trouble, we wish someone could help us get out of the trouble without criticizing us, but the person can’t be found.
We forget God knows where our trouble started, He does not critize us and He is there ready to help us.
當我們把事情搞砸、讓自己陷於危難時,我們希望有人能解救我們,而且他不會說罵教訓我們,但我們找不到那個人;
我們忘了打從事情開始時神就看見了,祂並沒有批判我們,祂也隨時準備幫助我們。

……

God is the friend that is always there, but do we ever seek and ever want to really know Him? Or do we just come to ask when we need Him? Are we fair to him? Do we cherish His love as the life He gave us?
He is our creator, our life giver, our provider, our life sustainer, our helper, healer…
He is All-merciful, All-forgiving, Compassionate, Joyful…
He is All-mighty and All-powerful.
唯一真神是我們最真誠的朋友,祂一直沒有離開過我們,但我們可曾真追尋過祂?真想認識祂?或我們須要祂時才想到祂?我們可曾也真誠對待祂, 珍惜祂的愛像自己的生命?
祂是我們的創造主,我們生命的賦予者,生命的供應者、維繫者,祂是我們的救助者,也是醫治者…
祂最憐憫,祂原諒眾人,祂大慈大悲,祂是生命快樂的泉源…
祂有大能,且全能。
