每日灵修  3/20/2019  耶和华与我们同在

当晚,全体会众放声大哭,整夜哀号。 他们埋怨摩西和亚伦说:“我们还不如死在埃及或旷野! 耶和华为什么把我们领到这里来,让我们死于刀下?我们的妻儿必被掳去。我们还不如返回埃及。” 他们彼此议论说:“我们选一位首领带我们回埃及吧!” 摩西和亚伦俯伏在以色列全体会众面前。 打探迦南的人中,嫩的儿子约书亚和耶孚尼的儿子迦勒撕裂衣服, 对以色列全体会众说:“我们去打探的地方是佳美之地。 如果耶和华喜悦我们,祂必把我们带到那片土地,将那奶蜜之乡赐给我们。 你们不要背叛耶和华,也不要害怕那里的人,他们不过是我们的猎物,他们已失去庇护。耶和华与我们同在,不要怕他们。”  民数记 14:1-9

Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people wept that night. 2 And all the Israelites complained against Moses and Aaron; the whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! 3 Why is the Lord bringing us into this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become booty; would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 So they said to one another, “Let us choose a captain, and go back to Egypt.” 5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the Israelites. 6 And Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes 7 and said to all the congregation of the Israelites, “The land that we went through as spies is an exceedingly good land. 8 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and honey. 9 Only, do not rebel against the Lord; and do not fear the people of the land, for they are no more than bread for us; their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them.” Numbers 14:1-9

注释:主张退回到埃及的以色列人都死在了旷野。从埃及出来的第一代成年人里, 只有 约书亚和迦勒, 以及下一代以色列人,进入了应许之地。

默想: 以色列会众为什么选择知难而退?

为什么只有约书亚和迦勒选择知难而进? 这两个人的信心从哪里来?

属灵操练: 在面临困难和挑战的时候, 你该怎么选择?

站在多数人群里, 选择知难而退,

或者站在上帝的一边, 决定知难而进?

要知道,上帝的应许和带领, 而不是多数人的意见和感觉

才能我们真正的安全和保障。

祷告: 天父, 当我们面临挑战和困难的时候,
求祢带领我们走信心之路。

我们的力量有限,胆量有限,

才智有限, 信心有限。

但是,祢是创造天地万物的上帝。

在人看来, 很多事难以成就,

但在祢眼里,凡事都可能。

求祢帮助我们凡事仰望祢

凡事信靠祢, 凡事跟随祢。

阿门。
