He Cares
Prathab V

Psalm 147

3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.

A few years ago, for the first time in my life, I saw a friend leave his sojourn on earth. It was a very painful death. He had a terrible genetic defect which rendered him not being able to feel pain in his body. Sometimes, while he was cooking, he would accidentally place his hand on fire and not realise it at all. By the time someone points it out, his hands would have sustained terrible damage.

Though often in great pain, he rarely complained. Instead, he was always cheerful and motivated others. He took great joy in giving as much as he can to others around him. He was an incredible brother in Christ.

I do not pretend to understand the pain and suffering of those who are going through various physical and emotional pain. Some say emotional pain is far more painful than physical pain. I may be wrong, but I think that the pain we experience, whether emotional or physical, are the same. They are manifestations of suffering, and possibly sin, in different forms.

Today, if you are experiencing some emotional pain, take comfort in knowing that God understands and hears your cries. If you are going through some very painful physical pain or terminal illness, rest assured, God knows and hears your prayers. God is not far from any of us. Come to Him with a contrite heart. Pour your heart out to Him.

This morning, read Psalm 147, especially verses 3 to 5, and rejoice in His presence. In verse 3, the Psalmist says that God heals the brokenhearted (your emotional travails). He also binds up your wounds (your physical pain). If you are feeling betrayed, hurt, angry and upset, I pray that God will meet you and comfort you in His arms. If you are battling cancer or any other form of painful illness, I pray that God will also answer your prayers and strengthen you. Our God is a loving and faithful God.

Our prayers may not always receive the answers we crave for, but we can rest knowing that we are in His hands always. We are safe in Him – always.

As you meditate, close your eyes, and ponder on His goodness. Give thanks for all that He has blessed you with. I pray that the Lord will grant you your prayers for healing and strength.

Prayer:

Lord, I praise You for all that You are. There is none like You, Lord. I am blessed to be in Your presence. Please heal me, strengthen my heart and make me whole so that I may glorify You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, I ask. Amen.

诗篇147:3-5节
3 他医好伤心的人、裹好他们的伤处。
4 他数点星宿的数目、一一称他的名。
5 我们的主为大、最有能力,他的智慧无法测度。

几年前,我有生以来第一次看到自己的朋友离开这世界。这是一个非常痛苦的死亡。他有一个痛苦的遗传缺陷,这缺陷使他无法感觉到疼痛。有时,当他在做饭,他会不小心将手放在火焰上而没有意识到。当有人告诉他时,他的手已遭受严重的伤害。

尽管他经常感到非常痛苦,但他很少抱怨。相反的,他总是非常开朗地鼓励别人。他乐于慷慨施舍。他是一个不可思议的主内弟兄。

我不会假装理解那些正在经历各种苦难的人的痛苦,这包括了身体和情感上的痛苦。有人说情感上的痛苦比身体上的痛苦还要来得更多。我可能是错的,但我个人认为我们经历的痛苦,无论是情感上的还是身体上的,都是一样的。它们只是以不同的形式体现了痛苦,甚至也有可能是罪的成果。

今天,如果您遇到一些情感上的痛苦,请放心知道上帝明白而听到您的哭声。如果您正在经历身体上的疼痛或绝症,请安心,上帝知道并听到您的祷告。上帝离我们任何人都不远。带着谦卑的心来到祂面前,把您所要讲的都告诉祂。

今天早晨,读诗篇147,特别是第3至5节。在第3节中,诗人说,上帝医好伤心的人(您情感上的苦恼)。他也裹好您的伤处(您的身体疼痛)。如果您感到被出卖、受伤、愤怒和沮丧,我祷告上帝会遇见您并在他的怀抱中安慰您。如果您在抗癌中或其他任何形式的痛苦疾病中,我祷告上帝也会回应您的祈求,使您更加坚强。我们的上帝是充满爱和信实的。

我们的祈祷不一定能得到我们渴望的答案,但我们可以放心知道我们总是在祂手中。我们在祂里面很平安—永远的平安。

当您默祷时,闭上眼睛,默想祂的良善。感谢祂所祝福您的一切 。我祈求主垂听您的祷告,使您得到医治和力量。

祷告:
主啊,我为你的一切而赞美祢。主啊,有谁能像祢?我很感恩能进入到祢的同在。请医治我,坚固我的心,使我完全,以便我可以用我一生来荣耀祢。我奉主耶稣的名祈求,阿们。
