The Giant that David Could NOT kill!
2 Samuel 撒母耳記下 21:15-17
Is there anyone who has not heard how David killed the giant Goliath? 是否有人沒有聽說過大衛殺死巨人歌利亞？1 Samuel 17:48-49 As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him. Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground.
Years later, still fighting the Philistines, David was not a young man any longer. 多年後，大衛仍然和非利士人戰鬥，但他已經不是一個年輕人了。
2 Samuel 21:15-17 Once again the Philistines were at war with Israel. And when David and his men were in the thick of battle, David became weak and exhausted. Ishbi-benob was a descendant of the giants; his bronze spearhead weighed more than seven pounds, and he was armed with a new sword. He had cornered David and was about to kill him. But Abishai son of Zeruiah came to David’s rescue and killed the Philistine. Then David’s men declared, “You are not going out to battle with us again! Why risk snuffing out the light of Israel?”
“當我們感到氣餒的時候,是不可能殺死巨人的. 有時候我們所能做的只是挺住. 在大衛的例子中,上帝給了他一位年輕人亞比篩. 他像當年的大衛一樣勇猛. 亞比篩殺了大衛無法殺死的巨人.”
“讀過詩篇的人就知道大衛的生命所經歷的沮喪與脫軌. 他一再的質疑上帝的主權. 他甚至犯了姦淫並且安排殺死那女人的丈夫! 為什麼他會被稱為符合上帝心意的人呢? 因為終於大衛總是以悔改的心回轉到他的源頭 -他的上帝- 面前. 還記得他為他所犯的姦淫及謀殺所做的悔改禱告嗎?”
Christian Blog Writer April Lorier said this about David…以下是基督徒部落格作家April Lorier寫有關大衛的一段話…
“It’s improbable we can slay giants while we are discouraged. Sometimes it’s all we can do to hold on! In David’s case, God provided a young man named Abishai who was as fiery as David used to be. Abishai killed the giant David was unable to kill.”
1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.
——12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
When you are discouraged, come back to when you first believed in Christ… 當你感到沮喪時，回到起初你第一次相信基督的時候…
“My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” – Jesus , John 10:10 耶穌說：“我的目的是給他們一個豐盛和滿足的生命。” – 約翰福音10 : 10
Isaiah 42:1-4 “Look at my servant, whom I strengthen. He is my chosen one, who pleases me. I have put my Spirit upon him. He will bring justice to the nations.
He will not shout or raise his voice in public.
He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle.
“Those of us who read the Psalms know how much discouragement and dysfunction David had in his life. He questioned the sovereignty of God over and over. He even committed adultery and arranged the husband’s death! So why is he called A man after God’s heart? Because eventually David always returned to His Source – His God – in repentance. Remember his prayer when he was repenting from his adultery/murder?”He will bring justice to all who have been wronged. He will not falter or lose heart until justice prevails throughout the earth. Even distant lands beyond the sea will wait for his instruction.”
以賽亞書42 : 1-4 看哪、我的僕人、我所扶持、所揀選、心裏所喜悅的、我已將我的靈賜給他、他必將公理傳給外邦。他不喧嚷、不揚聲、也不使街上聽見他的聲音。壓傷的蘆葦、他不折斷．將殘的燈火、他不吹滅．他憑真實將公理傳開。他不灰心、也不喪膽、直到他在地上設立公理．海島都等候他的訓誨。
What do you feel when people say to you, “You can’t do it. Go back & wait.” 當人對你說 “你做不到的，回去等著。“ 你會有什麼感覺?
Colossians 4:10-11 Aristarchus, who is in prison with me, sends you his greetings, and so does Mark, Barnabas’s cousin. As you were instructed before, make Mark welcome if he comes your way. Jesus (the one we call Justus) also sends his greetings. These are the only Jewish believers among my co-workers; they are working with me here for the Kingdom of God. And what a comfort they have been!
歌羅西書4:10-11 與我一同坐監的亞里達古問你們安。巴拿巴的表弟馬可也問你們安。（說到這馬可、你們已經受了吩咐．他若到了你們那裏、你們就接待他。）耶數又稱為猶士都、也問你們安．奉割禮的人中、只有這三個人、是為 神的國與我一同作工的、也是叫我心裏得安慰的。
There are numerous ways to be exhausted. The Bible is not specific. 疲乏的方式有許多種。 “聖經”裏的方式也不是特定的。
How do you get exhausted? What causes you to fell exhausted? 你是怎麼會疲乏的? 是什麼原因讓你感到疲乏?
WHAT DOES JESUS GIVE US IN OUR NEED? 在我們的需求上，耶穌給了我們什麼？
Romans 12:5 We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. 羅馬書12 : 5 我們這許多人、在基督裏成為一身、互相聯絡作肢體、也是如此。
