【12.9】令人惊叹的普通启示General Revelation And Awe


音频

“诸天述说神的荣耀;穹苍传扬他的手段。” – 诗 19:1

清晨,我与朋友每周一次在芝加哥的湖边跑步。通常我们开始跑步时,天色仍然相当黑,城市仍然一片静寂。我们沿途曾见过红狐在白金汉喷泉附近的灌木丛林下睡觉,也见过几只寻觅兔子的土狼在单行线上徘徊。

我们返回时,太阳刚刚开始从密歇根湖面升来。过不了多久,阳光从芝加哥城区地平线上的银色玻璃反射出来,天空浮现出一片粉红和橙色晕染的底色,湖水则是一片蔚蓝。每一次的风光都美得令人叹为观止,这纯粹的美景的确值得驻足。这样的时刻,是人生中一个难得的震撼心灵的时刻。

或许你也有一条最熟悉的步道、一个最喜爱的观赏日落的地点、或者一台望远镜,用于观看星座、行星、或月亮 - 以及类似的一些令人心生敬畏的景观。

无论是什么事物令你产生这种感受,今天的你,能否留出片刻,来领会令人惊叹的创造之美呢?

祷告

主啊,你创造的世界是如此美丽。求你叫我们敞开心灵,让我们感受到你伟大的创造带来力量和美。阿们!

诗篇 19

1诸天述说神的荣耀,穹苍传扬他的手段。
2这日到那日发出言语,这夜到那夜传出知识。
3无言无语,也无声音可听。
4他的量带通遍天下,他的言语传到地极。神在其间为太阳安设帐幕,
5太阳如同新郎出洞房,又如勇士欢然奔路。
6它从天这边出来,绕到天那边,没有一物被隐藏不得他的热气。
7耶和华的律法全备,能苏醒人心。耶和华的法度确定,能使愚人有智慧。
8耶和华的训词正直,能快活人的心。耶和华的命令清洁,能明亮人的眼目。
9耶和华的道理洁净,存到永远。耶和华的典章真实,全然公义。
10都比金子可羡慕,且比极多的精金可羡慕;比蜜甘甜,且比蜂房下滴的蜜甘甜。
11况且你的仆人因此受警戒,守着这些便有大赏。
12谁能知道自己的错失呢?愿你赦免我隐而未现的过错。
13求你拦阻仆人,不犯任意妄为的罪,不容这罪辖制我,我便完全,免犯大罪。
14耶和华我的磐石,我的救赎主啊,愿我口中的言语、心里的意念在你面前蒙悦纳。

General Revelation And Awe

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” – Psalm 19:1

Once a week I meet with a friend early in the morning to run along the Chicago lakefront. When we begin, it is usually dark, and the city is quiet. Along the way we have seen a red fox that sleeps under bushes around Buckingham fountain, and we once came upon a handful of coyotes pacing the bike path, looking for rabbits.

By the time we head back, the sun is just beginning to peek over Lake Michigan. Before long, the sun’s rays reflect off Chicago’s silvery, mirrored downtown skyline. The sky begins to take on pink and orange hues, and the water can be so blue. It’s breathtaking every single time. The sheer beauty is something to behold. It is one of the few moments that weekly puts me in a state of awe.

Maybe you have a favorite walk that you take, a favorite spot to watch the sun set, or a telescope to look at stars, planets, or the moon—something that creates in you a sense of awe.

Whatever does this for you, can you set aside a few moments today and take in the beauty and awe of God’s creation?

Prayer

Lord, there is so much beauty in your world. Open our senses to be aware of your beauty and power in your vast creation. Amen!
