Asking God for Wisdom 向神求智慧

     People all over the world are feeling the effects of the Coronavirus. No doubt it has taken a toll on our mental, physical, and emotional health. There are many uncertainties and questions about how to move on with our lives in this ongoing crisis. Senior prom has been cancelled.  Graduating-in-person has been cancelled.  Summer vacations and travel plans have been cancelled.  Weddings have been cancelled or postponed.  Some are having “online” weddings without the presences of extended families to celebrate with them. Everybody’s struggling. 

    The Bible tells us in James 1:5-6 what all we should do when we don’t know what to do.   If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.  But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

     God gives wisdom to anybody who asks for it. Have you asked God to give you wisdom on how to handle the pandemic? Have you asked him for wisdom on what to do about your job, your future, your kids, your health, or whatever you're struggling with? God gives wisdom to anybody who asks for it.  He wants us to ask for wisdom.

     Solomon was one of the wealthiest and most successful kings.  He had everything  anyone could ever want or need.  But still he asked God for wisdom. Why?  King Solomon knew that riches and power and comfort meant nothing if he couldn’t make wise decisions.

     Wisdom helps you learn from any trouble you are experiencing today.  God wants to use the pain, the hurts, the struggles to challenge you to develop into the likeness of his Son Jesus Christ. As we face the challenges in the months ahead, know this, God wants you to learn from the crisis and He had promise to give you wisdom in generous portions.  Just ask Him.


  全世界都受到新冠病毒的影響,我們的身體、心理與情感健康無疑已受到威脅,如何在這場持續的危機中生活,仍煞存著不確定和各種疑問。畢業生舞會取消了,畢業生也無法親臨畢業典禮;暑假和旅行計劃已被取消;婚禮取消或推遲,有些人舉行“線上”婚禮,沒有親朋好友在場一同慶祝。每個人都在掙扎。

  當我們不知到怎麼辦時,聖經告訴我們該做甚麼。雅各書1:5-6告訴我們:『你們中間若有缺少智慧的,應當求那厚賜與眾人,也不斥責人的神,主就必賜給祂。只要憑著信心求,一點不疑惑;因為那疑惑的人,就像海中的波浪,被風吹動翻騰。』

上帝將智慧賜給祈求的人。您是否曾向上帝求智慧,以應對此流行病?您是否求祂賜智慧來面對工作、未來、孩子、健康狀況或任何困難?上帝將智慧賜給任何向祂祈求的人。祂要我們尋求智慧。

所羅門身為最富有和成功的王之一,他擁有別人想要的或需要的一切。但他仍然向上帝求智慧。為什麼?因為所羅門王知道,如果他不能做出明智的抉擇,那麼財富、權力和舒適將毫無意義。

智慧可以幫助我們在難處中學到功課。有時上帝使用痛苦,傷痛和掙扎來磨練我們,好讓我們可以長成祂兒子耶穌基督的樣式。面對未來數月的挑戰,請記住這點,上帝希望我們從危機中學到功課,並且祂已慷慨承諾要賜我們智慧。只要開口求祂。

「凡在軛下作僕人的,當以自己主人配受十分的恭敬,免得神的名和道理,被人褻瀆。僕人有信道的主人,不可因為與他是弟兄就輕看他。更要加意服事他。因為得服事之益處的,是信道蒙愛的。你要以此教訓人,勸勉人。」(提前六1-2) 從經文看出當時教會中有些會眾是做僕人的,他們在軛下失去自由,渴望自由,信主後若主人也是主內弟兄,在教會與主人平起平坐,回到家當然也想要平起平坐;若遇到不信主的主人,更是不能順服 ─ 蒙
