如何克服恐懼

Preacher: 陳恩賜牧師 Rev. Timothy Chan
Service Type: Online 國語

耶和華的僕人摩西死了以後,耶和華曉諭摩西的幫手,嫩的兒子約書亞,說: 2 「我的僕人摩西死了。現在你要起來,和眾百姓過這約旦河,往我所要賜給以色列人的地去。 3 凡你們腳掌所踏之地,我都照著我所應許摩西的話賜給你們了。 4 從曠野和這黎巴嫩,直到幼發拉底大河,赫人的全地,又到大海日落之處,都要作你們的境界。 5 你平生的日子,必無一人能在你面前站立得住。我怎樣與摩西同在,也必照樣與你同在;我必不撇下你,也不丟棄你。 6 你當剛強壯膽!因為你必使這百姓承受那地為業,就是我向他們列祖起誓應許賜給他們的地。 7 只要剛強,大大壯膽,謹守遵行我僕人摩西所吩咐你的一切律法,不可偏離左右,使你無論往哪裏去,都可以順利。 8 這律法書不可離開你的口,總要晝夜思想,好使你謹守遵行這書上所寫的一切話。如此,你的道路就可以亨通,凡事順利。 9 我豈沒有吩咐你嗎?你當剛強壯膽!不要懼怕,也不要驚惶;因為你無論往哪裏去,耶和華─你的神必與你同在。」
約書亞記 Joshua 1:1-9 (和合)

如何克服恐懼?

1. 深信神的應許

耶和華的僕人摩西死了以後,耶和華曉諭摩西的幫手,嫩的兒子約書亞,說: 2 「我的僕人摩西死了。現在你要起來,和眾百姓過這約旦河,往我所要賜給以色列人的地去。 3 凡你們腳掌所踏之地,我都照著我所應許摩西的話賜給你們了。 4 從曠野和這黎巴嫩,直到幼發拉底大河,赫人的全地,又到大海日落之處,都要作你們的境界……你必使這百姓承受那地為業,就是我向他們列祖起誓應許賜給他們的地。
約書亞記 Joshua 1:1-4, 6 (和合)

2. 經歷神的同在
5 你平生的日子,必無一人能在你面前站立得住。我怎樣與摩西同在,也必照樣與你同在;我必不撇下你,也不丟棄你……9 我豈沒有吩咐你嗎?你當剛強壯膽!不要懼怕,也不要驚惶;因為你無論往哪裏去,耶和華─你的神必與你同在。」
約書亞記 Joshua 1:5, 9 (和合)

3. 倚靠神的能力
6 你當剛強壯膽!…. 7 只要剛強,大大壯膽,謹守遵行我僕人摩西所吩咐你的一切律法,不可偏離左右,使你無論往哪裏去,都可以順利。 8 這律法書不可離開你的口,總要晝夜思想,好使你謹守遵行這書上所寫的一切話。如此,你的道路就可以亨通,凡事順利。 9 我豈沒有吩咐你嗎?你當剛強壯膽!不要懼怕,也不要驚惶;因為你無論往哪裏去,耶和華─你的神必與你同在。」
約書亞記 Joshua 1:6-9 (和合)

思想及討論問題:
1. 人生時常會經歷不同的恐懼,你現在所面對的恐懼是什麼?
2. 恐懼帶來什麼負面影響?
3. 為什麼神三番四次叫約書亜要剛强壯胆,不要懼怕?
4. 在這段經文中我們能得到什麼啟發去面對恐懼?

Text: Joshua 1:1-9 (NIV)
After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. 3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
