Worship Whilst Waiting (Chinese/English)

Psalm 130

诗篇130

 

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

耶和华啊,我从深处向你求告。

 

2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

主啊,求你听我的声音,愿你侧耳听我恳求的声音。

 

3 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

主耶和华啊,你若究察罪孽,谁能站得住呢?

 

4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

但在你有赦免之恩,要叫人敬畏你。

 

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and worship in his word do I hope.

我等候耶和华,我的心等候,我也仰望他的话。

 

6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

我的心等候主,胜于守夜的等候天亮,胜于守夜的等候天亮。

 

7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

以色列啊,你当仰望耶和华,因他有慈爱,有丰盛的救恩。

 

8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

他必救赎以色列脱离一切的罪孽。

 

WORSHIP WHILST WAITING

等待时敬拜

 

There are so many words we speak every day, but some are more special than others.

Prayer is often seen as us talking to God and this is so true, but it is a two-way communication.One of the things that all of us hate doing, is to be kept waiting, in the bank, at the supermarket checkout, please hurry up is the cry.

So often we despise these times, you know these people were going to the temple to offer their sacrifices, they were probably in a long line of people waiting patiently. The times of waiting in your life are probably the most precious, the waiting times are not desolate they should be the times when God is most precious to us, it is in these times that God alone satisfies

It is not a time of silence, it is a time of worship, a time a rejoicing and a time of sweet fellowship with God. We can cry out to God and we can praise God for all his mercies to us, for all his gracious forgiveness to us. Next time You are kept waiting, don’t complain, WORSHIP.

 

我们每天讲许多话,有些话更特别,祷告通常看起来就像我们与神讲话,事实的确如此。但这是一种双向沟通。我们都厌恶做的一件事,就是持续等候。在银行,在超市结账处,经常喊着请快点,我们常常瞧不起这些时候。你知道这些人会去圣殿献祭,他们或许要排长长的队伍耐心等待。你的生命中等待的时间或许是最珍贵的,等待时间并不是孤独凄凉的,他们应当是神最珍惜我们的时候,这些时候并不是沉默的时候,而是神单单满足我们的时候,这是敬拜时光,喜乐时光,与神甜蜜相伴的时光。我们可以向神呼求,可以为他对我们的一切怜悯,为他给予我们的原谅和恩典,而赞美他。下次你要持续等候,不要抱怨。要敬拜。
