May God’s Face Shine on Us Teaching Us His Word 願神的臉光照我們把祂的真道教導我們“(Psalm 詩篇 119:129-136)

Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them. The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. … Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts. Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees. …

你的法度奇妙,所以我必遵守你的法度,你的話一解開,就發出亮光,使愚人有悟性。… 求你轉向我,恩待我;像你素常對待那些愛你名的人那樣。求你用你的話引導我的腳步,不容什麼罪孽轄制我。求你救贖我脫離人的欺壓,好讓我謹守你的訓詞。求你用你的臉光照你的僕人,把你的律例教導我。…

Jesus Christ, the eternal Word is called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God and His free from error words instruct, elevate, strengthen and comfort the soul prompting greater obedience in more than outward action. Even simple, unlearned people can also find understanding in God’s clear, light-giving word. This is a blessing, a promise and also a responsibility for them. The turning of God’s attention to a person could be a curse and not a blessing unless it is accompanied by His mercy. When our steps are directed by God’s word, we will avoid being under the dominion of sin and be freed from whatever level of dominion sin may have gained. The proper reason for seeking God’s redemption from human oppression is for properly obeying God rather than serving oneself only.  


Prayer: Sovereign God, if we say we love your name, we should love your person, character, revelation and glory. Indeed, those who know your uttered words best wonder at them most. Knowing your face shining upon us affirms us that we are at peace with God knowing you are at peace with us and experiencing your grace and goodness. May your face shine on us teaching us your word. Amen.

禱告: 至高無上的神啊,如果我們說愛慕你的名,我們理應愛慕你的位格、性情、啓示和榮耀。確實,那些最認識你口發出話語的人,會對你的話語感到最奇妙。曉得你的臉光照我們,肯定我們是與你和好,曉得你是與我們和好,並經歷你的恩典和美善。願你的臉光照我們,把你的真道教導我們。阿們。
