流水不腐,戶樞不蠹

When you believe II

這個版本有中文翻譯

其實這首歌是迪士尼卡通《埃及王子》(摩西)的插曲

在Fuller教授「心靈醫治」的老師說:這是一首心靈治療的歌

 

的確,信心雖要執迷,卻不是膚淺的

不是沒有看見,禱告有時不蒙應允;不是沒有經驗,信心跌到谷底

先來看看:這首合唱的歌,按演譯歌詞來看,Whitney Houston與Mariah Carey,誰更沒有信心?

答案是後者。

Whitney Houston只表達了兩句:

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear

但Mariah Carey唱第二段,更清楚看見她的軟弱,跟我們每個人一樣

In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away

恐懼、禱告無效、信心像鳥飛走……

就是因為沒有信心,才更需要信心。

像那個父親,願意相信,卻經歷門徒禱告的無效,孩子仍然受鬼折磨,高喊:「我信,請援助我的不信!」(可9:24呂振中版本)

主願意幫助!就是我們的信心,也是聖靈給的!只要我們肯呼求,肯信!

況且我們的軟弱有聖靈幫助。原來我們不曉得應當怎樣禱告,但聖靈親自用不可言喻的歎息,替我們祈求。                       羅8:26

上帝為了成全自己的美意,就在你們裏面動工,使你們可以立志和行事。                 腓2:13

所以,Whitney Houston與 Mariah Carey都經歷了從上頭而來的信心:

In our hearts a hopefull song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could               (Whitney Houston)

Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say                     (Mariah Carey)

信心,讓我們在困境中仍能呼求;這種信心,能產生任何神蹟!

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

這種信心釋放的屬靈能量,就是趙鏞基所言,

"An uneducated guy stands up and beliebves in Jesus, he can do many things; better than an educated guy who doesn't believe".

今日普遍的西方教會與香港教會,由於一切趨於富足與理性,鮮能看見莫大的信心、懇切的祈求,也絕少有神蹟出現,跟非洲、南美與中國大陸的教會大相逕庭。大概今日所謂文明社會,就跟耶穌的家鄉拿撒勒一樣:

耶穌因為他們不信,在那裏不得行甚麼異能。祂也詫異他們不信     太13:58,可6:5-6

《第四度空間》最後的啟示到此為止,我願在我,在你們身上,都見得到謙卑的禱告與無限的信心。

  1. Stone,
    The sharign is very encouraging. To a believer who has little faith like me,  I hope I can put faith in my Lord more so that the spirit can work on me freely.
    Love in HIM

    But我不喜歡她們的衣著:)

  2. Thanks for the sharing. It comes really timely as a number of things around me turn out to be messy and difficult.
    Just learnt a few new dishes these days, can't wait to treat your family with homemade good food when you're back next year.
    :p if people like me can cook…….
    we can really sing "there can be miracles, when you believe"…..hahahahaha
     
    all the best!
    [版主回覆03/05/2009 02:05:00]一樣啦!大家都咁需要神蹟!
    珊珊吃了你的新菜沒有?

  3. Stone,
    I've never heard about this song before. It's good. I didn't pay attention on their dressing style. Learning to be faithful and be faithful to the Lord is a lifelong learning process la!

  4. This is also one of my favorite songs when I'm down and out.
    [版主回覆03/05/2009 02:04:00]能有知音人,真開心。
    三小福依舊好可愛,又有進步,可喜可賀。
