One day we will harvest a field of golden wheat 有一天我们就会收割一片 One day we will harvest a field of golden wheat 金黄色的稻田 We will see 我们会看见 The church can really be a shelter in this city 教会真的成为这个城市的庇护所 Because the nature of the Gospel is 因为福音的本质就是要 Jesus said, "I have come to proclaim the Good News to the poor" 耶稣说 我要把福音传给贫穷的人 "To proclaim freedom for the oppressed" 让受压制的得自由 This is a very important meaning of the Gospel 这是福音很重要的内涵 Next is a quote that I think is great 下面有一段话我觉得很好 It is by St. Francis 是圣方济所说的 Let's read it together, shall we? Please 我们一起来读一下好吗 来 "Start by doing what's necessary" 一开始先做必需做的事 "Then do what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible" 然后再去做可能的事 "Then do what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible" 突然间你会发现 "Then do what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible" 你正在做那些不可能的事情 Amen? 阿们吗 I feel that in my life there have been many examples of this 我觉得我的人生有很多 I feel that in my life there have been many examples of this 类似像这样的经历 So, when I saw this quote, I said "Amen" 所以我看到这句话 我非常的阿们 At first, you feel that 刚开始你只是觉得说 It seems that some things require someone to do them 好像有一些事情需要有人去做 If no one is willing, then I will do it 那如果没有人愿意做 If no one is willing, then I will do it 那我去做好了 Then, once you go to do it 那么你去做之后 Suddenly, you start to do something 突然之间你会开始去做 You are doing something that is possible 你正在做一些可能你做得到的事情 But after a while you discover 但是再过一段时间你会发现说 You are doing things you never thought possible 你正在做一些你以前想 You are doing things you never thought possible 你根本不可能做得到的事情 Actually, our lives are like this 事实上我们的人生就是这样子
09:19
We keep sowing seeds, then slowly bring in the harvest 一直地撒种 然后慢慢地收割 You will eventually see wonderful hope before you 你会看到最后有美好的盼望 You will eventually see wonderful hope before you 在你的前面 This is the blessing that God has prepared for us 这是神预备要给我们的祝福 So, what do I think hope is? 所以我认为盼望是什么 Hope in waiting does not necessarily mean you will receive 等候的盼望未必是一定要得到我 I want to receive something 我要得到的东西 And I want to believe that God will give me that which is best 而是我要我相信神会给我那最好的 Ok. Next there is a Scripture 好 所以下面有一句话 From the Book of Romans, chapter eight, verse 28 在罗马书第8章28节 We know that all things work together for good 我们晓得万事都互相效力 Let's read this Scripture together. Please 这处圣经节我们一起来 Let's read this Scripture together. Please 这句话我们一起读一下 来 Ok. Then God knows what is best for us 好那神知道什么是对我们最好的 Perhaps in our lives 也许我们生命当中 We have encountered some hardships 遭遇到一些的苦难 We have encountered some unexpected setbacks 遭遇到一些我们没有办法 We have encountered some unexpected setbacks 预先预测的一些的挫折 But God has a way to make all things work together for good 但是神有办法叫万事都互相效力 For those who love Him 叫爱祂的人得着益处 This is a very precious and important promise that God has given us 这是神给我们 This is a very precious and important promise that God has given us 非常宝贵跟重要的应许
10:36
I want to continue to share today's topic 我想我继续地来分享今天的主题 Today's topic is Hope in Waiting 今天的主题是等候中的盼望 Pastor Samuel just showed us some photographs 刚刚修哥给我们看了不同的照片 We saw the seeds that were sown 26 years ago 我们看到26年前撒下的种子 And we see today's fruits 那我们也看到今天的果子 I want to ask everyone 但是我想问大家 What comes between seeds and fruits? 种子跟果子中间是什么 Actually it is a long period of waiting 其实是一个很长很长的等待 Isn't it? 不是吗 Today's topic 今年的主题 I think we can come back to the presentation about today's topic 我想我们可以回到主题的那个简报 Today's topic is Hope in Waiting 我们的今天的主题是等待中的盼望 What is the keyword for this year 那我们今年的关键词 Or the theme? 或者是主题字是什么 Hope 盼 Hope 盼 I think that hope is a very important lesson in everyone ‘s life 我想盼望是在 I think that hope is a very important lesson in everyone ‘s life 我们每个人的生命里面 I think that hope is a very important lesson in everyone ‘s life 都很重要的功课 But if we think about it 但是我们如果想一想 Anyone with hope 任何在盼望的人 Isn't he or she also waiting? 他是不是也就在等待 There is no way to separate these two 这两个是没有办法分开的 If you are hoping that means you are waiting for something 你在盼望就表示你在等一个东西 You are waiting for God to respond to your prayer 你在等一个神祷告的回应 You are waiting for something 你在等一件事情 That you may have been asking of God for a long time 你可能跟神求很久了 But it hasn't happened yet 因为还没有来
11:37
So hope is the circumstance in your life 所以盼望才是你的生命光景 Hope and waiting happen at the same time 所以盼望跟等待其实是同时发生 We experience them simultaneously 我们同时经历的 This word "hope" brings us 盼望这两个字带给我们 Actually it is a very positive feeling 其实是一个蛮正面的感觉 But, waiting seems to be a different kind of feeling 但是等待好像感觉就不一样了 Everyone likes hope 我们每个人都很喜欢盼望 But when it comes to waiting 但是我们换到等待的时候 This even feels a little bit negative 这个其实是甚至是有点负面 We don't want to wait 我们不想要去等待 No one likes waiting 我们没有一个人喜欢等待 When we order take out, we order a pizza 我们叫外送 我们叫披萨 We hope that it can arrive in half an hour 我们希望半小时就到 When we buy something 我们买东西 We hope that it can arrive at our home within 24 hours 我们希望在24小时之内 We hope that it can arrive at our home within 24 hours 就能够送到家 When we send a text message 我们传简讯 We expect the person receiving it to answer within a few seconds 我们期待对方几秒钟之内 We expect the person receiving it to answer within a few seconds 就能够回应我们 Now in this age of technological advancement 我想在科技发达的现在 We often talk about hope 我们常常讲盼望 But behind hope is 但是在盼望的背后中 We forget that there is waiting 我们反而忘记了等待 Or that waiting on God is a lesson 或者是等候神的一个功课 So then our topic today is 那所以我们今天的主题 Hope in Waiting 等候中的盼望 Waiting is something we are all experiencing 等候是我们现在每个人都在经历的
12:41
We also need to learn this 我们也都需要在这边的学习 Then, our Scriptures today 那我们今天的经文 If you look at your weekly they are all 你如果看周报的后面其实是在 From the latter part of chapter eight of the Book of Romans 罗马书第8章的等于说是后半段 This is a long Scripture 是一个蛮长的经文 Then, within this Scripture 那在这个经文里面 There is much that we are familiar with 有很多我们很熟悉的 Perhaps we have memorized verse 24 我们或许背起来的金句在24节 For in this hope we were saved 我们得救是在乎盼望 In verse 28, for those who love God all things work together for good 28节是万事都互相效力 In verse 28, for those who love God all things work together for good 叫爱神得益处 In the latter part of chapter eight, I think 在第8章最后我想 Sometimes, we encounter difficulties 有的时候我们碰到困境 We pray and we 我们碰到祷告我们都会 What can separate us from God's love? 有什么能够让我们跟神的爱隔绝 Nothing can separate us from God's love 是没有东西能够让我们 Nothing can separate us from God's love 与神的爱隔绝 This is a Scripture we are all very familiar with 这是都我们很熟悉的经文 We also have memorized it 我们也都会背 But I think we also all know that 但是我想我们也都知道说 When God gave us the Bible 当初神把圣经给我们的时候 When He gave us His Word 把祂的话语给我们的时候 It was not verse by verse 不是一句 一节一节分开给我们 What I mean is 我的意思是 In the whole Bible there are more than 23000 verses 整个圣经有快两万三千多节 In the New Testament there are nearly 8000 verses 整个新约有快八千节 In the beginning, God gave us all these 那一开始神所给我们的这些的 Actually there are verses before and after those verses that we have memorized 我们会背的经文其实都有前后文了
13:41
Then in Romans, chapter eight 那罗马书第8章 If we read it carefully 如果我们仔细去看 Paul actually is 最后保罗其实是在跟 He is talking about hope in waiting 是在讲有关等候中的盼望 So, it is not only these Scriptures that are helpful 这不只是这些经文有帮助 It is the entire situation 而是它整个处境 What he is saying is 他要说的是 These are comforting Scriptures 这些我们得到很多安慰的经文 They are helpful to us 其实就是在帮助我们 After planting seeds and waiting for the fruits 在种子种下之后在等果子中间的 During this period of waiting 这个等候的这个的时间 So, if waiting and hope are inseparable 那所以如果等待跟盼望 So, if waiting and hope are inseparable 是分不开的话 How can we have hope while waiting? 那我们如何在等待中有盼望 Let's first look at Romans chapter eight 我们先来看罗马书第8章一开始 We have groaning in waiting 我们有等候中的叹息 Groaning in waiting 等候中的叹息 Let's go back and start from verse 18 我们回到18节这边开始 The groaning in waiting 等候等待中的叹息 This is what Paul wrote in chapter eight, verse 18 这是我们在保罗在8章第18节写的 Let's read it together here 这边我们一起来念好了 Ok, this is what Paul started OK这个是一开始保罗后面的一个 If we go back to verse 18 如果我们回到18节来讲的时候 What did Paul say in the beginning? 保罗一开始是怎么说 He said the sufferings of this present time 他说现在的苦楚
15:51
Are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us 将比将来要显得荣耀中 Are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us 就不足介意了 If we go back to verse 18 回到18节来看的话 The entire context of Paul's writing 保罗这边这边的整个的前后文是 He said we will experience suffering in our lives 他说我们生命中会经历苦楚 And when we are suffering 那但是我们经历苦楚 That is, when we are waiting 也就是我们在等待的时候 It is not easy 是不容易的 But when we think of the hope for the future 但是我们想到以后的盼望 And the glory to come 以后的荣耀的话 Then, it is not worth comparing what we go through with the glory that will be revealed 那么我们现在所经历的 Then, it is not worth comparing what we go through with the glory that will be revealed 就不足介意了 I don't if what Paul says here is similar to your situation 我不知道保罗这边讲的 I don't if what Paul says here is similar to your situation 现在跟你的处境会不会是很像 You may be waiting for healing of your physical illness 你可以能在等待一个 You may be waiting for healing of your physical illness 身体疾病上的医治 You may be praying 你可能在祷告 And waiting for restoration of a relationship or your marriage 在等待一个关系婚姻上面的复合 You may have prayed to God for something 你可能跟神求了一件事情 For yourself, for your career 为你自己 为你的事业 For your work, for your children 为你的工作 为你的孩子 And you've been praying for the ones you love 为你所爱的人一直求 But you are waiting for God's response 但是我们还在等待神 But you are waiting for God's response 要来回应我们 However, Paul knew that 但是保罗知道说 This process of waiting is not easy 在这个等待的过程中
16:51
This process of waiting is not easy 这是不容易的 But he told us 但是他跟我们说 He told us that our sufferings 他跟我们说 我们这些的苦楚 They are not worth comparing with the glory to come 跟以后要得的荣耀 They are not worth comparing with the glory to come 那我们这些的苦楚就不算什么了 And Paul continues on from verse 18 to verse 21 那保罗在这边18到21节 And Paul continues on from verse 18 to verse 21 这边继续讲 Actually, sometimes, when we read this 其实这边有的时候读起来 It feels like a literary work 感觉像是文言文一样 He often writes 他常常这边字 Here he often talks about creation 这边常常在讲所造之物 What does this mean? 这个到底是什么 What Paul means is that 这边保罗的意思是说 All creation 所有天上地下所造之物 He wants us to know it's not only you who is waiting 他要我们知道不只是你在等候 It's not only Pastor Samuel who is waiting 不只是修哥在等候 It's not only me who is waiting 不只是我在等候 But everything that God has created 而神所创造所有的天地万物 We are all waiting for the day the new heaven and new earth will come 都在等候那有一天要来的新天新地 For glory and eternity to come 要来的荣耀 要来的永恒 And this waiting 而这个等候 So, it's not that we, we are not alone 所以我们不是 我们不是寂寞的 But in this process of waiting 而在这个等候的过程 Let's go to the slide after verse 22 我们到下一个 22节之后的简报 Here it says the whole creation has been groaning together 这边讲所造之物都一同叹息 I don't know if you groan during the process of waiting 我不知道大家在等候的过程中
17:53
I don't know if you groan during the process of waiting 会不会叹息 The photographs that Pastor Samuel just shared 刚刚修哥所分享的照片 From 26 years ago to today 从26年前的那一天一直到今天 We have seen growth from seeds 中间看到种子要来成长中 I believe farmers often groan 我相信任何的农夫会有很多叹息的 Moments of groaning 叹息的光景 Here Paul tells us 保罗在这边跟我们说 During the process of waiting 在等候中的过程中 You can groan 你叹息是可以的 It's ok for you to groan 你叹息是OK的 Everything that's been created in the world 世界上所有的所造的东西 It's all groaning 也都在叹息 Our bodies will deteriorate 我们的身体会败坏 And the things God has created 神所创造的东西 We are all waiting for someday, for eternity to come 我们都在等候有一天永恒过来 And everything will be renewed 所有的东西都会更新 And Paul continues 那保罗继续地说 For in this hope we were saved 我们所谓的盼望 For in this hope we were saved 我们得救是在乎盼望 But if we already see hope 但是我们如果已经看到盼望了 Then, we are not waiting 那就没有等待 That is we don't see what we hope for 就是我们盼望的东西是没有看到的 And Paul from the beginning, when we talk about hope in waiting 那保罗一开始我们讲等候中的盼望 First we have to know that 第一个我们要知道的是 When you are waiting for God's response 当你在等候神回答的时候
18:55
It's ok for you to groan in your heart 你心中的叹息是可以的 Because the whole world is groaning together 因为全世界也都在一起叹息 We are waiting for God's final Salvation 我们在等候神最后的救赎 The coming of heaven and the realization of eternity 天堂的来到 永恒的实现 Ok, let's move to the second point 好 我们到第二点 The help from waiting 在等待中的帮助 The help from waiting 等待中的帮助 Let's read from verse 26 我们从26节我们再一起来念 Ok, let's go back to verse 26 OK 我们回到第26节这边 In the beginning, we said 我们一开始说 It's ok to groan in waiting 等待中的叹息是OK的 And now, we are going to take a look at the help in waiting 那现在我们要来等待中的帮助 Here it says, God knew we would groan 在这边讲 神知道我们会叹息 But we are not alone 但是我们不孤单 Because it says 因为这边讲 That when we are in the process of enduring 是不是我们在忍耐等候的过程 Who prays for us? 谁会替我们祷告 The Holy Spirit prays for us 圣灵会替我们祷告 And here, there is something special 而这边很特别的一个地方是 Paul especially says 保罗特别地讲 In the beginning, before this 它在一开始的前文 In the beginning, we read the first 一开始我们读的第一个 A few verses of Scripture 第几节的经文 We saw the word "groan" twice 我们已经看到叹息出现了两次了 You groan, so do I 你会叹息 我会叹息
20:43
And all of creation groans 所造之物也会叹息 But here, the Holy Spirit prays for us 但是在这里圣灵替我们的祷告 Paul also said that the Holy Spirit uses groanings too deep for words 保罗也说圣灵会用说不出来的叹息 To pray for us 来替我们祷告 And so, sometimes 那所以就是当有的时候 We are waiting 我们在等待 We don't see the fruit we want to see 我们没有看到想要的果子 The most difficult moment for a farmer 当农夫最辛苦的那一刻 We are waiting for the renewal of our body 我们在等候我们身体的更新 And the response to our prayers 我们祷告的回应 The restoration of a relationship 我们关系的恢复 You will groan 你会叹息 But at that moment, Paul 但是在这个时候保罗 And the Bible gives us a great help, that is 圣经给我们一个很大的帮助是 The Holy Spirit prays for us 圣灵会替我们祷告 And the Holy Spirit even groans with us 而圣灵的 And the Holy Spirit even groans with us 祂会甚至跟我们一起叹息 The prayer of the Holy Spirit is not like a pep talk 圣灵的祷告不是像拉拉队式的 The prayer of the Holy Spirit is not like a pep talk 那种祷告 Sometimes, when people are groaning, they really don't want 有的时候在叹息的人最不想要 Sometimes, when people are groaning, what they need the most is 有的时候叹息的人最需要的是 To have someone groan with them 有另外一个人陪他一起叹息 Rather than just use positive thinking to overcome everything 而不是好像就是用正面力量去 Rather than just use positive thinking to overcome everything 去赢过一切 But the groaning of the prayer of the Holy Spirit 但是圣灵的祷告的叹息 It's also not like, this is really miserable 也不是那一种 这个真的很惨 "Lord, there is no way for this to happen" 主 这个真的没有办法 It is not like our groaning in desperation 就是祂的叹息

Let's read verse 31 第31节我们一起来念 This is really great evidence 这边是一个很大很大的确据 Here, Paul is telling us 这边保罗跟我们说 When we are waiting 我们在等待的时候 He said it in verse 18 他18节就已经说 We are suffering, aren't we? 我们在面对苦楚不是吗 We are waiting 我们在等待 But he reminds us here 但是在这边他提醒我们 In the process of waiting 我们在等待的过程中 There is a great evidence, that is 一个很大的确据是 God has given us His best 神已经把祂最好的东西给我们 He has given us His Only Son 祂已经把祂的独生爱子给我们了 What good thing will He not give us? 祂还会有什么好处不给我们呢 If God is for us 神若帮我们 Then, who can be against us? 那谁能敌挡我们呢 We all can recite this, and we all know it 这个我们都会背我们都知道 However, we often forget it 但是我们常常忘记这个 The background to this Scripture is that 整个的整个的这个经文的背景是 We are waiting on the Lord 我们在等候神 All of creation is waiting on the Lord 所造之物我们在等候神 And in the process of waiting 而在等候的过程中 We all are weak 你跟我都会软弱 Sometimes, we don't want to wait 我们有的时候不想等了 Sometimes, we lose our faith 我们有的时候失去了信心 But here, Paul said 但是保罗在这边说 When you're waiting there is evidence 你在等待的时候有一个确据 And this evidence is unshakable 而且这个是不可动摇的确据 God, through His only son 神透过祂的独生爱子
25:19
And through the cross 透过十字架 He has made an unshakable covenant with us 已经跟我们立了一个不会动摇的约 When we are waiting, it's difficult 我们在等待的时候有的时候很辛苦 You're waiting for the healing of your body 你在等待身体的医治 You're waiting for a response to your prayers 你在等待祷告的回应 You're waiting for something you've wanted for a long time 你在等待一些你长久要要求的事情 Sometimes, we groan 有的时候我们会叹息 Sometimes, we keep groaning 有的时候我们会一直叹息 But Paul said it here 但是保罗在这边说 Don't forget that God is for us 不要忘记神是在我们这边的 He has given us the best 祂已经把最好最好的给我们了 So we have groaning and we have help 所以我们有叹息 我们有帮助 We have evidence 我们有确据 And in the end, we see the victory from waiting 那最后我们看到等待的胜利 And in the end, we see the victory from waiting 等待的胜利 The fourth, the victory from waiting 我们到第四个 等待的胜利 Ok, the last Scripture, verses 35 to 39 好的最后35节到39节 These are familiar verses 这都是我们很熟悉的经文 Let's read them together 我们一起来念 I think when we are in the process of waiting 我想我们在等候的过程中 I think when we are in the process of waiting 等待的过程中 We have hope 我们有盼望 盼望 But we experience hope and waiting together 但是盼望跟等待是一同经历 And waiting is connected to another feeling 而等待会跟另外一个感觉连在一起
27:07
What is that feeling? 这个感觉是什么 Actually, it's loneliness, right? 其实是孤单 对不对 When we are waiting for an answer 当我们在等待一个回答 And waiting for a response from God 等待一个神回应我们的时候 In the process of waiting 等待过程中 We often feel that 我们常常会觉得 It seems like the whole world does not need to wait 好像全世界都不需要等待 You're the only one who keeps waiting 只有我在一直一直地等 Waiting is a lonely process 等待是一个很寂寞的过程 But in the end, Paul gave us 但是保罗在最后给了我们一个 We have victory from waiting 我们等待中胜利 Paul said, you have to know that 保罗说 你要知道没有事情 Nothing can separate you from God's love 能够让你与神的爱隔绝 None of these can separate you from God 这些的事情都不能 都不能把 None of these can separate you from God 就是都不能让你跟神隔绝 Paul said God already gave us His most precious 之前保罗说神已经把祂最爱的东西 His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ 祂的独生爱子耶稣基督赐给我们 After this 而赐给我们之后在最后 We see at the end of chapter eight in the Book of Romans 罗马书第8章最后我们看到 A Scripture we are familiar with 我们所熟悉的经文 This is our victory from waiting 这就是我们在等待中的胜利 We are not waiting faithlessly 神我们 我们不是没有信心的等待 We are not waiting faithlessly 我们不是没有确认的等待 Our waiting 我们不是好像 神啊 我我这个等待
28:08
It is not based on something vague or empty 不是建立在空虚 无有的东西上面 In the process of our waiting 我们的等待的过程中 We are actually victorious 我们其实是胜利的 God never said His people don't need to wait 神从来没有说祂的子民不需要等待 God even said that all creation 神甚至说 现在所造之物 Both you and me are waiting 你跟我都在等待 But in this process of waiting 但是在这个等待的过程中 We are people with hope 我们是一群有盼望的人 If we add up all four points today 我们今天如果把这四点 The groaning, the help, the evidence and the victory 等待的叹息 帮助 确认跟胜利 The groaning, the help, the evidence and the victory 加起来的话 These four are our hope, aren't they? 这四个东西就是我们的盼望不是吗 Brothers and sisters, don't be afraid of groaning 亲爱的弟兄姊妹不要害怕叹息 God understands your heart 神了解你的心意 Even the Holy Spirit groans with us 连圣灵都会跟着我们一起叹息 We have help. The Spirit will intercede for us 我们有帮助圣灵会帮我们祷告 I don't have time today 今天没有时间讲 但是 但是连 But in the Book of Romans it says 就是在罗马书那边讲说 Even Jesus prays for us 连耶稣都会替我们祷告 This is our biggest help 这个是我们最大最大的帮助 Moreover, we have evidence 再来我们有我们的确据 God already gave us His best 神已经把祂最好的 His Only Begotten Son 独生爱子给我们了 Lastly, in our waiting process 到最后我们在等待的过程中
29:09
Although we might feel lonely sometimes 虽然有的时候会感觉寂寞 But we don't believe our feelings 但是我们不要相信我们的感觉 We believe the Word of God 我们来相信神的话语 We are victorious 我们是胜利的 The groaning, help, evidence and victory all add up to hope 叹息帮助确据这胜利加起来 The groaning, help, evidence and victory all add up to hope 就是我们的盼望 Lastly, our word for this year is hope right? 最后我们今年的字是不是盼对不对 But have you thought about 但是你们有没有想过 Indeed hope is important 我们的盼望是很重要没有错 But one day this word will become useless 但是有一天这个字会没有用 One day hope will be useless 有一天盼望会没有用 Why? 为什么 Because we will be in eternity 因为我们已经到永恒了 In eternity 在永恒里面 Hope will be a memory 盼望这个会是一个回忆 What a beautiful thing this is 这是一个多美的事情 Before God is glorified 当在 在 在神还没有荣耀 Before Jesus comes again 耶稣还没有来之前 We are full of hope 我们充满着盼望 But we look forward to the day 但是我们更期待有一天 That the word hope will no longer be of use 盼望这个字已经不会再用到了 Because we will be with God in heaven and have the greatest satisfaction in eternity 因为我们已经在神的里面 Because we will be with God in heaven and have the greatest satisfaction in eternity 在永恒里面在天堂得到最大的满足 This is the biggest hope and help we have in our waiting 这个是我们在等待中 This is the biggest hope and help we have in our waiting 得到最大的盼望 最大的帮助
30:10
Let's give the remaining time to Pastor Samuel 我们把时间 OK 好 Regarding this topic 那我针对这个主题 My learning is 我的学习是 Our hope in times of suffering 我们在忍耐当中的盼望 What exactly is this hope? 那到底这个盼望 Pastor Wayne said it well 刚刚维恩讲得非常好 These are all God's promises 我觉得这些都是非常确定 These are all God's promises 是神的应许 Pease repeat after me, "God's promises" 请你跟我说 是神的应许 But I feel 可是我觉得 What is more challenging to me is 对我来讲比较不容易的就是 It is like after I plant a seed 好像我撒下一粒种子 I want to see a field of wheat the next morning 我就很希望明天早上 I want to see a field of wheat the next morning 就可以看到一片麦田 But just like what we said 但就像我们刚说的 This kind of hope is empty 这是这样子的盼望是比较是空泛的 We know God has willed it 我们要知道神的心意 That when a grain of wheat is planted 本来就是一粒麦子种下去 If the farmer works hard 如果农夫认真地耕耘 The will of God is 神的心意本来就是 Eventually there will be a field of wheat 最后这会有一片麦田 Perhaps many of us are waiting 也许我们很多人都在等候 You are praying 你的祷告 You have asked God for something 你向神求一件事情 But when you get up the next day 可是隔天早上起来 You don't see anything happening 好像没有看到那件事情发生 Sometimes we feel frustrated 有时候我们会觉得很挫折 "Haven't I prayed?" 我不是有祷告吗 "Didn't I ask earnestly?" 我也不是很认真祈求吗
31:14
Let's read from the Book of Philippians 我们来读腓立比书 From chapter four verses six to seven, ok? 第4章6到7节 好吗 What I want to emphasize is 我要强调的重点就是 To sum up what Pastor Wayne said 综合刚维恩所说的 In our waiting, we might groan 我们在等候当中我们会有叹息 But with God's help, we have evidence 可是有神的帮助我们有确据 Eventually we will be victorious 最后我们会胜利 Overall 整体来说就是 We can tell God our heart's desires 我们还是可以把我们心中所要的 But we need to believe 跟神说 可是我们要相信 This is God's promise 这是神的应许 Please repeat after me, "This is God's promise" 请你跟我说 这是神的应许 We tell God what we need 我们把我们所要的跟神说 So in the things we have prayed for 神这样在我们祷告的这件事情上 God has promised us to guard our heart and mind in Christ Jesus 神已经应许我们必在基督耶稣里 God has promised us to guard our heart and mind in Christ Jesus 保守我们心怀意念 And He will give us peace that transcends all understanding 而且神会赐给我们意外的平安 And He will give us peace that transcends all understanding 超过我们所想象的平安 If this is so 那如果是这样子 Maybe I have prayed 也许我祷告了 "I have prayed for my marriage" 我为我的婚姻祷告 "I prayed about my finances" 为我的财务祷告 "But when I got up the next morning" 可是明天早上起来 "My marriage wasn't better" 我的婚姻并没有变好啊 "My finances didn't improve either" 我的财务也没有改善啊 But just like what we've been saying 但是就像我们前一阵子一直在讲 SOP plus grace SOP加恩典 If you keep on 你如果继续 If the farmer keeps working hard 如果农夫继续认真的耕种 He keeps working according to agricultural principles 继续按照农业的法则去耕耘去撒种
32:33
One day he will see 有一天他就会看到 The full grace of God before him 神的恩典满满在他面前 I feel that we need to keep praying 我觉得我们仍然继续祷告 We tell God what we need 把心中所要的跟神说 And then diligently obey the teachings of the Bible 然后认真的去按照圣经的教导 We manage our relationships well 去把关系经营好 We forgive those who ought to be forgiven 该饶恕的去饶恕 Apologize to those who we ought to 该道歉的去道歉 In terms of our finances, we work honestly 在财务上面认真做正经事业 We do not cheat or steal 不要投机取巧 We do not take shortcuts 不要旁门左道 And we are givers 而且成为一个给予的人 The Bible says give and it will be given to you 圣经说你给就必有给你的 Pressed down, shaken together, running over 而且上尖下流连摇带按的 Poured into our arms 倾倒在我们怀中 So if we are willing to obey God's principles 所以我们如果愿意按照神的法则 Plus we pray and work hard 加上我们的祷告 去耕耘 One day that seed will become a field of wheat 有一天那粒种子就会成为一片麦田 So what exactly is our focus? 所以那到底我们的焦点是什么呢 I think our focus is not 我认为我们的焦点不是说 "I have prayed today" 我今天祷告了 "My hope didn't come true tomorrow" 我的盼望明天有没有实现 "God didn't answer my prayer" 神有没有听我的祷告 I know sometimes God supernaturally answers our prayers 我知道有时候神很超自然的 I know sometimes God supernaturally answers our prayers 回应我们的祷告 This is also true 这也是真实的
33:34
Recently I heard a testimony 最近我听到一个见证 There is a sister 有一个姊妹 She had great difficulty with her finances 她在她的经济上面 She had great difficulty with her finances 有遇到很大的困难 She asked the church to pray for her 她请求教会祷告 She was also praying 她自己也祷告 And God let her experience a supernatural breakthrough 然后她经历到神给她一个 And God let her experience a supernatural breakthrough 很超然的突破 We are so thankful for that 我们为这件事情感到很感恩 But I also want to say 但是我也要说 Perhaps for many people 也许对很多人来讲 You are groaning in the process of waiting 你还在等待叹息的过程 But if you're willing to obey God's principles 但是你如果愿意按照神的法则 To manage your finances 去经营你的财务 To give according to the principle of giving 按照一个给予的法则 The principle of tithing 奉献的法则 The principle of generosity 慷慨的法则 And to control your spending 而且保守你的消费 As well as run an honest business 而且认真的经营正确正经事业 I believe one day you will reap a harvest in terms of your finances 我相信有一天你会收割 I believe one day you will reap a harvest in terms of your finances 在你的财务上 Like a golden field of wheat 收割一片金黄色的稻田 So what exactly are we hoping for? 所以我觉得我们到底在盼望什么 Are we hoping that our problems will miraculously be solved? 盼望神迹般突然我的问题得到解决 Our financial issues will be solved? 我的财务得到解决 Our relationships and marriage will be restored? 我的情感 我的婚姻得到恢复 Our bodies will be healed? 我的健康得到医治 Or that we diligently obey God's will? 还是你认真遵行神的旨意 I believe true hope lies in 我认为真正的盼望在
34:35
Diligently obeying God's will 当你认真遵行神的旨意 God says, "God will do what He has promised" 神说 祂所应许的就必要成就 Let's read chapter 10 from the Book of Hebrews 我们来读一下希伯来书第10章 Verses 35 to 37, shall we? 35到37节这段话 好吗 Sometimes waiting is hard 有时候等待真的是满辛苦 But this Scripture says 可是这段话说 After we have done the will of God 等我们行完神的旨意 What I want to encourage everyone is 我今天要鼓励所有的人就是 Diligently obey the will of God regarding what you are praying about 认真去行完神的旨意 Diligently obey the will of God regarding what you are praying about 在你心中所祷告的那件事情上 You ask God 你问神 "Lord, what shall I do in this matter?" 主啊 这件事情我应该怎么做 I believe God will teach you 我相信神一定会教导你 If you don't know how 如果你不知道 You can ask your cell group leader 你也可以问教会的小组长 Or other leaders in the church 牧养的领袖 They may pray for you and perceive something 他们可能会为你祷告 They may pray for you and perceive something 有一些的领受 And give you some advice 给你一些的建议 If you are willing to do this 如果你都愿意这样子去照这样去做 I believe you are obeying the will of God 我相信你就是在遵行神的旨意 And when you obey the will of God 当你遵行神的旨意的时候 God says, "He who is coming will come and will not delay" 神说 那要来的就来并不迟延 God's grace will come into our lives 神的恩典就会临到在我们生命当中 I believe through this 我相信透过这样子 Perhaps the process of waiting is difficult 这个等候的过程也许是满辛苦的 But it is full of hope 但是却是大有盼望的 So God has already given us these promises in Christ Jesus 所以神已经在基督耶稣里
35:57
So God has already given us these promises in Christ Jesus 给我们这些的应许 So that through the various processes of waiting 好让我们在各样子的等候的过程 There may be groaning 也许真的有叹息 But we can cast our cares on the Lord 但是我们还是可以把我们 But we can cast our cares on the Lord 挂虑都交给神 And tell God what we need 而且把心中所要的跟神说 God will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus 神会在基督耶稣里 God will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus 保守我们的心怀意念 And God will give us peace that surpasses all understanding 而且神会赐超过我们所想象的平安 In the thing we are praying for 在我们所祷告的那件事情 But very importantly 但是很重要的 In the thing we are praying and waiting for 在我们所祷告的那件事情上面 In the thing we are praying and waiting for 等候的那件事情上面 Are we willing to obey the will of God? 你愿不愿意按照神的旨意 Are we willing to obey the will of God? 去遵行 去做 To follow the will of God 按照神的旨意去行 Maybe you say, "I did" 也许你说我已经做了 "I have followed the will of God" 我已经按照神的旨意去做了 "But I am not seeing any results yet" 可是还没有看到结果啊 In this moment, you need to have hope in waiting 这个时候就是需要在等候中的盼望 The Bible says, "In just a little while" 圣经说 因为还有一点点的时候 "He who is coming will come and will not delay" 那要来的就来并不延迟 迟延 So I want to use the Word of God to encourage everyone 所以我也要用这些神的话 So I want to use the Word of God to encourage everyone 鼓励每一个人 I encourage you to keep obeying the will of God 我鼓励你继续遵行神的旨意 Please repeat after me, "Keep obeying the will of God" 请你跟我说 继续遵行神的旨意 Once we have done something according to the will of God 等我们执行完神的旨意 God will give us what He has promised 神必要给我们得着 God will give us what He has promised 神所应许给我们的
