 「耶和華的約櫃在前頭行」(聖經民數記十章 33 節)

 

  很多時候,我們裡面起了一個聲音,自己不知道這聲音究竟是出乎神的呢,還是出乎自己的。在這種情形之下,我們還是不動的好。如果這是出乎神的,神必給我們充足的證據來證實這是出乎祂的,叫我們絲毫沒有疑惑的可能。

 

  耶利米的故事多美麗:耶利米對於購買亞拿突那塊地的事,已經知道是出乎耶和華的,但是他不去作,直到他叔叔的兒子果然到他那裡去求他買回給了他証據。於是耶利米說:「我....就知道這是耶和華的話」(聖經耶利米書三十二章 8 節)

 

  他等著,直到神叫他明白叫別人和自己都相信 以後,他才照著事實去作。神喜歡我們照著祂的心意行事。所以 我們不可輕舉妄動,以致違反了祂的心意。 ── 信宣(A. B. Simpson

 

 神的手所點的道路,神的手必去預備。

 

  信徒啊,你不要說你要做什麼、你不要做什麼;你只要求神叫你看見祂所為你選擇的是那一條路。如果道路還未顯明,這就是說:現在還沒有行動的需要;你站在你現在所站的地位上,神是負全責的──

"The ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them." (Num. 10:33.)

God does give us impressions, but not that we should act on them as impressions. If the impression be from God, He will Himself give sufficient evidence to establish it beyond the possibility of a doubt.

How beautiful is the story of Jeremiah, of the impression that came to him respecting the purchase of the field of Anathoth. But Jeremiah did not act upon this impression until after the following day, when his uncle's son came to him and brought him external evidence by making a proposal for the purchase. Then Jeremiah said: "I knew this was the word of the Lord."

He waited until God seconded the impression by a providence, and then he acted in full view of the open facts, which could bring conviction unto others as well as to himself. God wants us to act according to His mind. We are not to ignore the Shepherd's personal voice but, like Paul and his companions at Troas, we are to listen to all the voices that speak and "gather" from all the circumstances, as they did, the full mind of the Lord. -- Dr. Simpson.

"Where God's finger points, there God's hand will make the way."

Do not say in thine heart what thou wilt or wilt not do, but wait upon God until He makes known His way. So long as that way is hidden it is clear that there is no need of action, and that He accounts Himself responsible for all the results of keeping thee where thou art.
--Selected.

"For God through ways we have not known, Will lead His own."
