So where do we fit in? From our limited perspective, day-to-day events may seem random and detached from each other, like individual threads on the underside of a tapestry. But from God's perspective, nothing is random. He views the tapestry from above and sees an exquisite pattern. Each person and each event has a purpose, whether a birth, a death, an election result, a military defeat or a technological breakthrough (like the computer you are using right now).

因此,我们适合哪?从我们有限的视角看,每日的事件看似是随机的,相互不相连的。就像织锦背面的绒线。但是,从上帝的视角看,任何事情都不是随机的。他从上面看织锦,是优美的图案。每个人和每一件事都是有目的的,不论生与死,不论获得选举于战场失利,即或技术突破(如你现在在使用的计算机)都是事出有因,不是偶然出现的

How future events will transpire, we simply don't know. But God knows -- and again, we can trust Him implicitly. Not that we should have a passive, "come-what-may" attitude -- but rather the opposite. As Jesus directed, we are to be watchful, very attentive, especially as the end draws near (see Matthew 24:42).

未来事件如何发展,我们未曾可知。但是,上帝知道,我们完全信任他。只要我们有一个积极的,“面对将来可能发生的事件”的态度---而不是与之相反的态度。按耶稣的指引,我们将小心翼翼地,谨慎地,特别是在结果即将揭晓前(见马太福音 章节 24:42

One of my favorite scriptures defines the rules of engagement and the focus of our affections as we walk through the present toward the future:

一段我最喜欢的经文描写了我们走向未来时我们感情投入和关注的规则。

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1,2).

因此,我们也让我们搁置每个重量,因为我们受见证之密云笼罩,这样罪恶很容易诱捕我们。我们让我们有耐力跑完设定给我们的比赛,仰视耶稣,我们信念的创造者和终结者,他因设在他面前的喜乐,不顾羞辱,忍受了十字架的苦难,端坐在神宝座的右边。(马太福音 章节12:1,2

Just imagine -- pioneers of the faith watching you as you run the race! How timely is the advice that you shed all that weighs you down and keep your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus, the One who has already won the victory.

试想---当你在赛跑时,信仰的先辈们在看着你!建议不时告诫你远离那些掉队的,牢牢地盯住耶稣,他是唯一已经获胜的。

Memorize these verses from Hebrews and let them be your daily inspiration. Come what may, be certain that the Lord, who was there at the beginning, who has been present throughout, will write the last glorious chapter.

记住这些来自希伯来的经文,让他们成为你每日的激情。不管将来发生什么,确信上帝自始至终一直在那,他将书写最后华美的篇章。
