DAY 23 TRUSTING GOD FOR THE FUTURE

第23天 相信上帝,相信未来

Is my future safe in His hands?

我的未来托付给上帝安全吗?

As we grow in our relationship with the Lord we find we can trust Him for more and more. When Wendy and I were beginning our family, we spent long hours talking about what kind of world our children would encounter. (Probably every generation has had such concerns.) While we still wonder where this troubled world is headed, our confidence has grown that the future is safely in God's hands. More than just trusting Him in whatever happens, we trust Him for whatever happens.

当我们跟上帝建立关系,我们越来越发现我们可以信任他。当温蒂和我开始组建我们的家庭,我们长时间讨论我们的孩子出生将面临怎样的一个世界。(可能每一代人都有这样的担心。)当我们仍想知道乱世将走向何方,我们仍有信心我们的未来托付给上帝是安全的。我们不仅仅是什么都相信他,而是不论发生什么我们都相信他。

Undergirding this trust is an understanding that history is not just mankind's story. It's the Lord's story (His-story!). It has a beginning and an end. It is not circular, as some religions contend, but linear. Three major markers define the trajectory of man's journey.

Creation. The Bible's opening phrase is, "In the beginning" (Genesis 1:1) and Jesus was present: "He was in the beginning with God" (John 1:2). From that point, history unfolds systematically and progressively.

理解历史不仅是人类的历史,而是上帝的历史,有助于我们信任他。历史有始有终,它不是圆的,正如某些宗教认为的,是线性的。三圣一体,早就规定了人类旅途的路线。“创世纪”,圣经的开篇,“起初神创造天地”(创世纪 章节 1:1).耶稣说,“他一开始就和上帝在一起”(约翰福音 1:2)。从那开始,历史系统地,逐步地发展了。

Redemption and Restoration. The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus became the fulfillment of God's plan for a restored relationship with His creation -- and the fulcrum upon which all world events turn.

救赎与复活。耶稣的降生,死亡和复活是按上帝的安排恢复他与他所创万物的关系。世界上所有事件都基于此。

Consummation. History will culminate in what Paul calls the "consummation," or "summing up," when God will "gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth -- in Him" (Ephesians 1:10).

圆满。当上帝将基督的一切事物归总为一个时,不管天上的诸神,还是地上的万物,都归于上帝,这时历史归结于保罗所称作的“圆满”和“总结”。(以非所书 章节 1:10

We are now in that period leading up to the consummation. The times ahead will likely witness increasing challenge and difficulty throughout the earth, but we can rest securely in the confidence that God is firmly and fully in control.

我们现在处于走向圆满的时期。在这时,我们可能见证全地球挑战和困难在加剧,但是我们仍坚信上帝强有力地控制着世界,完全控制着世界。
