THE PSALMS

慕安德烈每日靈修 God's Best Secrets by Andrew Murray

 
Scripture: "How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! yea, sweetg, than honey to my mouth!"—Ps. cxix. 103.
        This book seeks to help us to worship God. Of the sixty-six books in the Bible, the Book of Psalms is given us es¬pecially for this purpose. The other books are historical or doctrinal, or practical. But the Psalms take us into the inner sanctuary of Gods holy presence, to enjoy the blessedness of fellowship with Him. It is a book of devotions inspired by the Holy Spirit.
        Would you each morning truly meet God and worship Him in spirit and in truth, then let your heart be filled with the Word of God in the Psalms.
        As you read the Psalms, underline the word "Lord" or "God," wherever it occurs, and also the pronouns referring to God, "I," "Thou," "He." This will help to connect the contents of the Psalm with God, who is the object of all prayer, When you have taken the trouble to mark the different names of God, you will find that more than one difficult Psalm will have light shed upon it. These underlined words will make God the central thought, and lead you to a new worship of Him, Take them upon your lips and speak them out before Him. Your faith will anew be strengthened to realize how God is your strength and help in all circumstances of life.
        The Psalms, as the Holy Spirit of old taught Gods people to pray, will, by the power of that Spirit, teach us, too, ever to abide in Gods presence.
        Then take Psalm cxix. Every time that the word "Lord," or "Thou." or "Thy" occurs, underline it. You will be surprised to find that each verse contains these words once, or more than once. Meditate on the thought that the God who is found throughout the whole Psalm is the same God who gives us His law, and will enable us to keep it.
        The Psalm will soon become one of the most beloved, and you will find its prayers and its teaching concerning Gods Word drawing you continually up to God, in the blessed consciousness of His power and love.
        Oh, how love I Thy law! It is my meditation all the day" (Ps. cxix 97).

Lead the Way

信心的支票簿 Faith's check book

 
Scripture: "The LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail"(Deuteronomy 28:13).
        If we obey the LORD, He will compel our adversaries to see that His blessing rests upon us. Though this be a promise of the law, yet it stands good to the people of God; for Jesus has removed the curse, but He has established the blessing.
        It is for saints to lead the way among men by holy influence: they are not to be the tail, to be dragged hither and thither by others. We must not yield to the spirit of the age, but compel the age to do homage to Christ. If the LORD be with us, we shalt not crave toleration for religion, but we shall seek to seat it on the throne of society. Has not the LORD Jesus made His people priests. Surely they are to teach and must not be learners from the philosophies of unbelievers. Are we not in Christ made kings to reign upon the earth? How, then can we be the servants of custom, the slaves of human opinion?
        Have you, dear friend, taken up your true position for Jesus? Too many are silent because diffident, if not cowardly. Should we allow the name of the LORD Jesus to be kept in the background? Should our religion drag along as a tail? Should it not rather lead the way and be the ruling force with ourselves and others?

Scripture: “The love of Christ which passeth knowledge.”(Ephesians 3:19)
        The love of Christ in its sweetness, its fulness, its greatness, its faithfulness, passeth all human comprehension. Where shall language be found which shall describe his matchless, his unparalleled love towards the children of men? It is so vast and boundless that, as the swallow but skimmeth the water, and diveth not into its depths, so all descriptive words but touch the surface, while depths immeasurable lie beneath. Well might the poet say,

        “O love, thou fathomless abyss!”
        for this love of Christ is indeed measureless and fathomless; none can attain unto it. Before we can have any right idea of the love of Jesus, we must understand his previous glory in its height of majesty, and his incarnation upon the earth in all its depths of shame. But who can tell us the majesty of Christ? When he was enthroned in the highest heavens he was very God of very God; by him were the heavens made, and all the hosts thereof. His own almighty arm upheld the spheres; the praises of cherubim and seraphim perpetually surrounded him; the full chorus of the hallelujahs of the universe unceasingly flowed to the foot of his throne: he reigned supreme above all his creatures, God over all, blessed for ever. Who can tell his height of glory then? And who, on the other hand, can tell how low he descended? To be a man was something, to be a man of sorrows was far more; to bleed, and die, and suffer, these were much for him who was the Son of God; but to suffer such unparalleled agony—to endure a death of shame and desertion by his Father, this is a depth of condescending love which the most inspired mind must utterly fail to fathom. Herein is love! and truly it is love that “passeth knowledge.” O let this love fill our hearts with adoring gratitude, and lead us to practical manifestations of its power.

Scripture: “I will accept you with your sweet savour.”(Ezekiel 20:41)
        The merits of our great Redeemer are as sweet savour to the Most High. Whether we speak of the active or passive righteousness of Christ, there is an equal fragrance. There was a sweet savour in his active life by which he honoured the law of God, and made every precept to glitter like a precious jewel in the pure setting of his own person. Such, too, was his passive obedience, when he endured with unmurmuring submission, hunger and thirst, cold and nakedness, and at length sweat great drops of blood in Gethsemane, gave his back to the smiters, and his cheeks to them that plucked out the hair, and was fastened to the cruel wood, that he might suffer the wrath of God in our behalf. These two things are sweet before the Most High; and for the sake of his doing and his dying, his substitutionary sufferings and his vicarious obedience, the Lord our God accepts us. What a preciousness must there be in him to overcome our want of preciousness! What a sweet savour to put away our ill savour! What a cleansing power in his blood to take away sin such as ours! and what glory in his righteousness to make such unacceptable creatures to be accepted in the Beloved! Mark, believer, how sure and unchanging must be our acceptance, since it is in him! Take care that you never doubt your acceptance in Jesus. You cannot be accepted without Christ; but, when you have received his merit, you cannot be unaccepted. Notwithstanding all your doubts, and fears, and sins, Jehovahs gracious eye never looks upon you in anger; though he sees sin in you, in yourself, yet when he looks at you through Christ, he sees no sin. You are always accepted in Christ, are always blessed and dear to the Fathers heart. Therefore lift up a song, and as you see the smoking incense of the merit of the Saviour coming up, this evening, before the sapphire throne, let the incense of your praise go up also.

Obstinate Faith

荒漠甘泉 Streams in the Desert

 
Scripture: "And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon a heap." (Joshua 3:13).
        Brave Levites! Who can help admiring them, to carry the Ark right into the stream; for the waters were not divided till their feet dipped in the water (ver. 15). God had not promised aught else. God honors faith. "Obstinate faith," that the PROMISE sees and "looks to that alone." You can fancy how the people would watch these holy men march on, and some of the bystanders would be saying, "You would not catch me running that risk! Why, man, the ark will be carried away!" Not so; "the priests stood firm on dry ground." We must not overlook the fact that faith on our part helps God to carry out His plans. "Come up to the help of the Lord."
        The Ark had staves for the shoulders. Even the Ark did not move of itself; it was carried. When God is the architect, men are the masons and laborers. Faith assists God. It can stop the mouth of lions and quench the violence of fire. It yet honors God, and God honors it. Oh, for this faith that will go on, leaving God to fulfill His promise when He sees fit! Fellow Levites, let us shoulder our load, and do not let us look as if we were carrying Gods coffin. It is the Ark of the living God! Sing as you march towards the flood! --Thomas Champness
One of the special marks of the Holy Ghost in the Apostolic Church was the spirit of boldness.         One of the most essential qualities of the faith that is to attempt great things for God, and expect great things from God, is holy audacity. Where we are dealing with a supernatural Being, and taking from Him things that are humanly impossible, it is easier to take much than little; it is easier to stand in a place of audacious trust than in a place of cautious, timid clinging to the shore.
        Like wise seamen in the life of faith, let us launch out into the deep, and find that all things are possible with God, and all things are possible unto him that believeth.
        Let us, today, attempt great things for God; take His faith and believe for them and His strength to accomplish them. --Days of Heaven upon Earth

The three-fold benediction

Restoring My Soul (VOL1) Day 63

 
References: Further Study: 2 Cor 13:14 Rom 5:5 Phile 6 Eph 4:12 Rom 16:24-27 Eph 3:1-7
When we are contemplating the nature of fellowship, there is something very significant about the three-fold benediction used by Paul at the end of his Corinthian letter. ‘The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.’ Love, grace and communion are the expressions of the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Administration is present where the predestination of the Father’s love is being ministered, where the grace-gifts of the Lord Jesus Christ are being imparted, and where the fellowship of the Holy Spirit is sustaining members in the power of this administration. Paul’s words to Philemon are very topical here, ‘That the fellowship of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus’. This is the fellowship of faith in which every good thing, in every member, is being acknowledged and revealed. It takes nothing less than the capacity of the Father’s love to identify a person’s predestination without reference to historical failures or familiarities. Motivated by love, the Father works to regenerate and strengthen the inner man, making every son compatible with their predestination. The grace of the Son equips every person to be a living and active member of the body of Christ. He equips ‘the saints for the work of service’. And finally, the love of the Father and the grace of the Son are brought to us through the Holy Spirit. We’ll recall the words of Paul, ‘The love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit’. Indeed, every operation of God, and all administration, is through the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who establishes our fellowship with the Father and with the Son.

His life in our mortality

Restoring My Soul (VOL2) Day 63

 
References Further Study 1 John 4:17 Rev 7:14-16 Rom 8:1-2 2 Cor 12:9 John 6:28 2 Cor 5:7, 11, 20
We should remind ourselves that ‘as He is, so also are we in this world’. We walk by faith and not by sight and the love of God controls us. As we live and walk as a new creation, we are manifesting the life of Jesus. We are ambassadors for Christ. And knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men. We are compelling all men on behalf of Christ to be reconciled to God. We are indeed working the works of God if we live as a new creation. This is our work in this age. And by this, our works are being perfected. Should we be alive in the day of Christ, then we will be among those who are perfected in mortality. We observe that a great multitude will come out of great tribulation, having washed their garments and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. This great number of believers will dwell under the shadow of the Almighty. And Christ, the bridegroom, will spread His tabernacle over them. The sun will beat down no more, and neither will they hunger or thirst. This is the hope of which Paul spoke. And this is the fullest expression of the resurrection life of Jesus in a mortal body. Let us consider again the apostle Paul. While striving for the power of God, he was compelled to live in weakness. Jesus spoke to him saying, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness’. This hope is fulfilled in the perfection of the bride of Christ. She is perfected in weakness and will be raised in power, along with all who have fallen asleep in Jesus, at the resurrection of the last day.

David’s sin and trespass

Restoring My Soul (VOL3) Day 63

 
References Further Study Ecc 5:6 Psa 116:11 2Sa 24 1Ch 21:1 2Co 2:11 Rev 16:7 2Sa 24:1, 15, 17
Immediately before one of David’s gravest errors, we read that the anger of the Lord burned against Israel. This may have been for any number of reasons. However, let us consider the words of King Solomon concerning the fulfilment of vows. Along with the divine wisdom that Solomon received from the Lord Himself, he also wrote with the wisdom gained by growing up in the household of David. He wrote concerning vows, ‘Do not let your speech cause you to sin and do not say in the presence of the messenger of God that it was a mistake. Why should God be angry on account of your voice and destroy the work of your hands?’ Was this the reason that the anger of the Lord burned against Israel? Had they made vows to David and then later said that it was a mistake? With this in view, we can understand why David exclaimed, ‘All men are liars’. There is no doubt that the people had failed him in many ways, but it was still incumbent upon him to make a virtuous response. Unfortunately, he did the reverse. He allowed the situation to incite him to number the people. He gave Satan an advantage as he abandoned his own faith and resorted to fallen, carnal means. Why did he number the people? Perhaps he was trying to find out how many people remained committed to raising the offering. Regardless of his motive, the end result was disastrous, as seventy thousand men died. The judgements of the Lord are righteous and true, and it is most likely that it was these men who failed to fulfil their vows. Nevertheless, in the end, the Lord’s issue was with David. It was not until David confessed his own sin as the shepherd of this great nation, that the Lord withheld the destroying angel.

References Further Study Heb 11:4-5 Joh 4:29 1Jn 5 1Jn 5:11-12 2Ti 1:8 Joh 1:12
Abel ‘offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying about his gifts [offering]’. And so too, Enoch ‘obtained the witness that before being taken up, he was pleasing to God’. The testimony confirms that through offering and fellowship with Christ and His sufferings, we have connected and aligned ourselves with the will of God. We are inheriting the substance of our name and identifying with Christ and His body. In this, we bear the testimony of Jesus and obtain testimony in ourselves. The word proceeding forward to communicate the truth of testimony is a name. So it is with the testimony of Christ. When we receive His testimony, we are receiving His name. This is why the Scriptures so often refer to ‘believing in His name’ for salvation. His name is synonymous with His testimony. When we receive the testimony of a messenger who proclaims the testimony of Jesus, we receive the Lord Himself. We receive the testimony of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which is revealed to us in the council of Elohim. This testimony contains the word forever settled, in which your name is written and sounded out to you. When you obtain testimony, you obtain the substance of your own name. What Jesus did for the woman at the well was to tell her all about herself, and she began to understand the witness. She understood something substantial about herself in relation to Christ at that point, which is part of the word forever settled in the heavens.
