Psalm 139 – God Knows Everything 诗篇 139 – 神都知道

Section One V1-12 God Knows God Presents

The experience of David from being chosen to hiding with the Philistines, God knows, inspects, and helps him to change. Many times we think that God does not know our affairs, that we do not know our authority, and that we do not believe that God will be in control. David did the same back then. At first he killed Goliath in order to get a reward. Later he ran to hide in the enemy’s place because he was afraid of Saul. So he wrote this psalm to testify that God knows everything about us.

When we know that God knows everything, we don’t want to control others by venting our emotions. David learned his lesson from his failure on the verge of ruining his family, don’t rely on people, but rely on God alone.

Section Two V13-16 God Creates

David confessed that everything came from God. We are shaped as “orphans” by the environment in the process of growing up, and do not feel loved, so we must fight for ourselves to be recognized by others. We are often offended by a word. This is due to the fact that we have not been praised by others since we were young. David realized this and brought his memory back to his mother’s womb, knowing that he had been loved by God at that time, and the orphan’s heart was healed. David was able to do this because he was willing to be humble and therefore recover from God. Only when we are healed can we give thanks to God. When there is no life or love in us, we can worship God as true and free as David.

After David was healed by God, he walked out of his doing mode and resumed his being. We are often affected by our victim’s mentality, manipulative mentality, and orphan’s mentality, but we have to let go of all this, because God knows everything about us and He created everything.

Section Three V17-24 God Leads

The original text of “mind” is “purpose, goal”-the purpose and goal God has given us is very precious. We usually feel hurt and tired because we set goals for ourselves, instead of seeking God, but relying on our own abilities and resources to fight for it, so we will cling to what we have and not let go. God asked the Israelites to exterminate the people of the seven Canaan tribes, but they didn’t listen and were attached to them. The same is true for us, and they didn’t see themselves from God’s eyes.

If we want to experience God’s multiplied blessings, we must first come to God in humility, like David, and praise God wholeheartedly.

诗篇 139

神都知道

这是大卫写的关于他人生的诗篇。我们平时若有很多事情做不完时,常常看到的是负面的东西,却没有看到神给我们能力,反而用自己从神而来的恩赐去换取从世界而来的好处。大卫说到人想要躲避神(V7),正是当时亚当夏娃犯罪后的反应。神创造人其实是要跟人有亲密的关系,但人想要躲避神,是心里有苦毒,骄傲。唯有在生命树下舍己利他、谦卑顺服,才能得到恢复。我们在地上的时间其实是很短的,神说要聚宝在天,当我们愿意看到这一点时,就不会对一些小的得失斤斤计较。

一、神都知都在(v.1-12)

V1 大卫从被拣选到躲到非利士人那里的经历,神都知道、鉴察、帮助他改变。我们很多时候以为我们的事情神不知道,以为我们的权柄不知道,不相信神会掌权。大卫当年也是如此,一开始为了得到奖赏而杀死歌利亚,后来因为害怕扫罗而跑到敌军之地躲藏,所以他写下这首诗,见证神知道我们一切的事。

V2-4 很多时候我们人以为神不知道,就想要靠自己的方式来为自己争取利益,但其实神“都晓得”我们的意念,也知道我们“舌头上的话”.

V7-9 当我们以为神不知道,就会躲避神的灵,甚至像大卫那样躲到亚杜兰洞、躲到敌人的地方。

V10 即便如此,神仍然会将我们从自以为安全的地方引导出来。我们愿意回应神吗?我们要伸出我们的手,让神的手扶持我们。

V12 当我们愿意跟随神带领时,才能“如白昼发亮”,因为神的心意就是让我们出黑暗入光明。

当我们知道其实神什么都知道的时候,我们就不会想用发泄自己的情绪来掌控别人。大卫从濒临家破人亡的失败中学到功课,不要倚靠人,要单单倚靠神。

二、神创造(v.13-16)

大卫承认自己一切都是从神而来。我们在成长的过程中被环境塑造成“孤儿”,不感觉被爱,所以一定要为了自己去争去被人认可,常常被人一句话就冒犯,这都源于自己从小没有被人肯定赞美。大卫意识到这一点,将自己的记忆带回在母腹中的时候,知道在那个时候他就已经被神所爱,于是孤儿的心得到医治。大卫能够如此,是因为他愿意谦卑,因此从神那里得到恢复。我们唯有被医治时,我们才能称谢神。当我们里面没有生命、没有爱时,我们才能像大卫这样真实、自由的敬拜神。

大卫得到神的医治后,就从自己的doing模式走出来,恢复自己的being。我们常被自己的被害者心态、操控的心态、孤儿的心影响,但我们要放下这一切,因为我们的一切都被神知道,他创造万物。

三、神带领(v.17-24)

V17 “意念”的原文是“目的、目标” – 神给我们的目的、目标是非常宝贵的。我们平时会觉得受伤、疲倦,是因为我们为我们自己设立目标,没有寻求神,只是靠自己的能力资源去争取,因此会紧抓住自己拥有的东西不放手。神当年让以色列人灭绝迦南七族的人,但他们不听,眷恋那里,我们也是如此,没有从神的眼光看自己。

V19 大卫宣告,将自己的一切交托给神,不再去争去抢。当我们靠自己的时候,我们就会进入网罗和死亡。

V21 我们要分别为圣,当我们进入世界,不是跟他们交朋友,不要流连忘返成为他们的一份,反要带他们出来。我们唯有走出我们的山洞,才能进入神的光明。

V23 神会带领我们,而我们唯有被神鉴察、经历试炼,才能真正被神带领。

若想要经历神倍增的祝福,我们先要谦卑来到神的面前,像大卫一样,全心全意赞美神。

*追求

神是爱,他是爱我们的阿爸天父,他给我们的都是最好的。今天圣经跟我们说 神是爱,神都知道,神无处不在,神创造我们,他爱我们。然而我们心里有很多负面的东西,不愿意放手的东西,在今天早晨,我们求神加添我们力量,让我么愿意放手,将我们紧紧抓住的东西放下交给神,这样神就能牵着我们的手引导我们。让我们一起祷告,将我们里面一切的“我”、伤害、孤儿的心、一切不属神的东西都交给神。

主耶稣,谢谢你。谢谢你让我们知道主你都知道你都在,我们不再是一个人在煎熬受苦,奉耶稣的名捆绑一切仇敌对我们说的谎言,拿起圣灵的宝剑砍断这些谎言对我们的捆绑,斥责这些谎言离开,封存今天我们听到生命的道,让神的爱和祝福倾倒充满在我们生命中。
