DESIRES - THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD

Desires are not burdens, for instance, like danger or life-and-death situations. You will be far better off if you pray them out and walk into them. Then, you will be incredibly blessed, and your life will not be the same again. You will move up higher both spiritually and naturally.Desires can be God's deep things for those who would draw them out from His depths. In prayer, our spirit draws out the deep things of God. The depths of our spirit, our innermost being, call out to those deep things of God. Psalm 42:7 (NET) One deep stream calls out to another at the sound of your waterfalls; all your billows and waves overwhelm me. Here, the verse refers to mountains, streams, and rivers. You can hear water flowing from the streams mixed with the sound of the rivers. The psalmist alludes to the loud rushing sound of mountain streams and cascading waterfalls. Poetically, he imagines the streams calling out to each other as they hear the sound of the waterfalls. [Biblical Studies Press. (2005). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible. Biblical Studies Press.]So the deep cries of our hearts are like streams, calling out or drawing out the depths of God, and when we draw them out from God, they will sound like waterfalls, thundering and roaring. The deep things of God will overwhelm you. We draw out the deep things of God when we pray deep in unknown tongues. Our spirits lay hold of the Holy Spirit as He lays hold of us and draws the deep things of the Heavenly Father. And God will reveal those things in our spirits by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:9–10 (NET)9 But just as it is written, "Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him." 10 God has revealed these to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.There are things the Heavenly Father has prepared for each one of us. The future holds the deep things of God yet to be revealed. Our eyes have not seen, nor can our minds imagine, the deep things our Heavenly Father has precisely planned for us. But God will reveal them by the Holy Spirit when we pray with unknown tongues. The gift of speaking with unknown tongues is given to us for this very purpose: to pray out the mysteries of the deep things of God. Revelation will come. The mystery of the depths of God is not hidden against us but instead hidden for us. As we yield to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, He will give us the unction to pray, and the Heavenly Father will unfold them. The Holy Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. He searches them out to reveal them to us. Our spirits cannot search them out without the Holy Spirit because the depths of God are far beyond our reach. Therefore, pray much with unknown tongues and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in prayer. Do what He inspires you to do. Then, when the time comes, as He prompts you to pray deeper, yield to His promptings, and rely on the Spirit of grace to pray deep, plunging the depths of God by the Holy Spirit. When He reveals the deep things of the Heavenly Father to you, they will amaze you and confound others. Rev.

DESIRES - THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD

Desires are not burdens, for instance, like danger or life-and-death situations. You will be far better off if you pray them out and walk into them. Then, you will be incredibly blessed, and your life will not be the same again. You will move up higher both spiritually and naturally.

Desires can be Gods deep things for those who would draw them out from His depths. In prayer, our spirit draws out the deep things of God. The depths of our spirit, our innermost being, call out to those deep things of God. 

Psalm 42:7 (NET) One deep stream calls out to another at the sound of your waterfalls; all your billows and waves overwhelm me. 

Here, the verse refers to mountains, streams, and rivers. You can hear water flowing from the streams mixed with the sound of the rivers.

[Biblical Studies Press. (2005). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible. Biblical Studies Press.]

So the deep cries of our hearts are like streams, calling out or drawing out the depths of God, and when we draw them out from God, they will sound like waterfalls, thundering and roaring. The deep things of God will overwhelm you. 

We draw out the deep things of God when we pray deep in unknown tongues. Our spirits lay hold of the Holy Spirit as He lays hold of us and draws the deep things of the Heavenly Father. And God will reveal those things in our spirits by the Holy Spirit.  

1 Corinthians 2:9–10 (NET)
9 But just as it is written, Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him. 
10 God has revealed these to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

There are things the Heavenly Father has prepared for each one of us. The future holds the deep things of God yet to be revealed. Our eyes have not seen, nor can our minds imagine, the deep things our Heavenly Father has precisely planned for us. 

But God will reveal them by the Holy Spirit when we pray with unknown tongues. The gift of speaking with unknown tongues is given to us for this very purpose: to pray out the mysteries of the deep things of God. Revelation will come. The mystery of the depths of God is not hidden against us but instead hidden for us.

渴慕——深奥的属神之事

渴慕并不是一种负担,不是你遭遇危险或是处于生死存亡边缘时那种心头的重负。把你所渴慕的事祷告出来并踏入其中,对你是大有益处的。你会承受极大的祝福,生活也将变得不再一样。无论在属灵还是属世层面,你都会更上一层楼。渴慕可以是深奥的属神之事,你需要如打水一般把这些事从灵界深处汲取上来。在祷告中,我们的灵会汲取神深奥的事情。在我们的灵深处,我们最深的内在正向神深奥的事情发出呼求。诗篇42:7【新英语译本】你瀑布的声音,就是深渊与深渊的对话,你的波浪洪涛漫过我身。这节经文说的是山川、溪流与河水。你能听见溪水流淌,也能听见大江大河波涛汹涌的声音。这首诗的作者用山间的溪流和瀑布发出响声打了一个诗意的比方,他们听见瀑布泻落的声音,就想象这些溪流正在彼此呼唤应和。[Biblical Studies Press. (2005). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible. Biblical Studies Press.]我们内心深处的呼求正如这些溪流一样,向神的深处呼求,汲取那些深奥的事,把它们从神里面像打水一样打上来。它们听起来如瀑布一般振聋发聩,气势磅礴。神深奥的事情也是这样令你叹为观止。我们用方言往深处祷告时,就是在汲取神深奥之事。圣灵会紧紧抓住我们,我们的灵也紧紧抓住祂,共同把天父深奥的事给提上来。神会藉着圣灵把这些事向我们的灵显明。哥林多前书2:9-10【新英语译本】9 就如经上所记:“神为爱他的人所预备的,是眼睛未曾看见,耳朵 未曾听见,人心也未曾想到的。”10 神藉着圣灵向我们启示了这些事,因为圣灵搜寻万事,就连神深奥的事也都查明了。天父为我们每个人都预备了这样一些事。未来是未知的,因为深奥的属神之事尚未显明。天父为我们精准计划的深奥之事,是我们的眼睛还未看见,头脑也无法想象的。但神会在我们方言祷告的时候,藉着圣灵向我们显明这些事。神把说方言的恩赐赐给我们,正是为了这个目的:让我们能把神深奥的事祷告出来。你会得到启示。那些灵界深处的奥秘之事之所以隐藏,不是为了跟我们作对,而是为了我们的益处。我们若顺服圣灵的提示,祂就会赐下祷告的恩膏,天父也会把这些奥秘的事向我们展开。圣灵鉴察万事,甚至神深奥的事也参透了。祂去搜寻那些事,是为了把它们找出来以后向我们显明。没有圣灵的帮助,我们的灵就没法把它们找出来,因为神深奥的事是远非我们自己能够企及的。因此,要多多用方言祷告,在祷告中跟从圣灵的引导。祂感动你去做的事,就立刻去做。这样,当时机成熟时,祂会感动你去往更深处祷告。顺服祂的提示和引导,依靠圣灵的恩典往深处祷告,就能藉着圣灵把神深奥的事情汲取上来。祂会把天父的深奥之事向你显明,也会让你和其他人大吃一惊。耀光牧师新加坡信心教会请访问我们的中文播客,faithchurch.sg/牧师手札/#牧师手札 ...
