11我又轉念:見日光之下,快跑的未必能贏;力戰的未必得勝;智慧的未必得糧食;明哲的未必得資財;靈巧的未必得喜悅。所臨到眾人的是在乎當時的機會。 12原來人也不知道自己的定期。魚被惡網圈住,鳥被網羅捉住,禍患忽然臨到的時候,世人陷在其中也是如此。(傳道書九:11-12 )

11 Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. 12For man does not know his time. Like fish that are taken in an evil net, and like birds that are caught in a snare, so the children of man are snared at an evil time, when it suddenly falls upon them. (Ecclesiastes 9:11-12)

1.  時機際遇,在神手中

Time and Chance are in God’s Hands

  • 剛強聰慧,未必美滿
    The Strong Don’t Always Win
  • 軟弱愚昧,未必傷悲
    The Underdogs Don’t Always Lose
  • 人的一生,在神手中
    Life is in God’s Hand

2.      世事無常,緊跟隨主

  • Life is Unpredictable,
    So Trust the One Who is Unchanging
  • 世事難料,上帝掌權
    Unexpected Things Happen,
    but God Remains in Control
  • 世事多變,上帝不變
    Everything Around Us Changes,
    but God Remains the Same

3.      那麼,如何應用在我們的生活呢?

  • So, How Then Shall We Live?
  • 信靠順服Trust and Obey
  • 謙卑順服Walk Humbly and Obey

羅馬書Romans 9:15-16
因他對摩西說:我要憐憫誰就憐憫誰,要恩待誰就恩待誰。據此看來,這不在乎那定意的,也不在乎那奔跑的,只在乎發憐憫的神。 For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.

箴言Proverbs 16:9
人心籌算自己的道路;惟耶和華指引他的腳步。
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

詩篇Psalm 103:19
耶和華在天上立定寶座;他的權柄統管萬有。
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens.

詩篇Psalm 139:16

我未成形的體質,你的眼早已看見了;你所定的日子,我尚未度一日,你都寫在你的冊上了。

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

出埃及記Exodus 34:6

耶和華在他面前宣告說:耶和華,耶和華,是有憐憫有恩典的神,不輕易發怒,並有豐盛的慈愛和誠實…

The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness . . .

啟示錄Revelation 1:8

我是阿拉法,俄梅戛,是昔在、今在、以後永在的全能者。

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

耶利米書Jeremiah 9:23

耶和華如此說:『智慧人不要因他的智慧誇口,勇士不要因他的勇力誇口,財主不要因他的財物誇口。誇口的卻因他有聰明,認識我是耶和華,又知道我喜悅在世上施行慈愛、公平,和公義,以此誇口。這是耶和華說的。

Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

雅各書James 4:13-17
嗐!你們有話說:「今天明天我們要往某城裏去,在那裏住一年,做買賣得利。」其實明天如何,你們還不知道。你們的生命是甚麼呢?你們原來是一片雲霧,出現少時就不見了。你們只當說:「主若願意,我們就可以活著,也可以做這事,或做那事。」現今你們竟以張狂誇口;凡這樣誇口都是惡的。人若知道行善,卻不去行,這就是他的罪了。

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
