              The Father Heart of God: Heart of Disappointment

We feel vulnerable when our future hopes are dashed.

  •   So did King David.
  •   2 Samuel 6:1-11

The background of this story . . .

  • Uzzah died, trying to be helpful.
  • David responded with anger and fear.
  •  We do not always understand the circumstances God permits.
  • How will we respond?

No disappointment can knock us off course from a “fulfilled” life.

  • Our responses can.

Poor responses can harm our lives and our relationships.

  • Psalm 51:7

Humility is important in processing our disappointments.

  • Pride prevents us from succeeding in this process.
  • Floyd McClung’s 15 indicators of the presence of pride in our lives (from his book, The Father Heart of God)

Psalm 51 led David from pain to praise.

  •  Mary did too. (Luke 1:46-55)
  • So did Jesus. (Hebrews 12:2)

McClung’s 7 questions for responding to pain redemptively

Do we need to seek God in humility today?

讲道概要:

上帝的慈父心怀:当内心失望的时候

未来希望的破灭会令我们感到自己很脆弱。

大卫王也有同感。

撒母耳记下 6:1-11

 

这个故事的背景 …

乌撒试图伸手去扶约柜,却死在了约柜旁。

大卫的回应是愤怒和恐惧。

我们并不总是了解上帝允许的情况。

我们要如何回应?

 

失望不会令我们偏离“圆满”人生的轨道。

              令我们偏离的是我们所做出的回应。

不好的回应会损害我们的生活,破坏我们的关系。

诗篇51:7

要正确处理我们的失望,保持谦卑十分重要。

骄傲会妨碍我们在这个过程中取得成功。

在弗洛伊德·麦格伦(Floyd McClung)的著作《天父之心》中,

他指出了我们生活中15个骄傲的表现。

通过诗篇51章,大卫从痛苦走向赞美。

玛丽亚也是这样做的。(路加福音1:46-55)

耶稣也是。(希伯来书 12:2)

针对依靠上帝的拯救来对痛苦做出回应,麦格伦提出了7个问题

今天,我们是否需要谦卑地寻求上帝?
