Holy Spirit: Wilderness Landmarks to Remember by Jill Austin

曠野的紀念地標 by 吉爾.奧斯汀

進入曠野並不是件壞事,我們在曠野裡與聖靈親密相遇,也是在曠野你才能看見生命裡面的奇妙地標。每當我們穿越曠野之地,在遇見心愛君王新郎的路途上,就一路設立了這些「紀念地」(Places of Remembrance)。在挫敗時刻、傷痛事件期間,也是神要我們與祂相遇、神聖會面的邀請,然後,在未來的某一天,你再回頭看那些傷痛時刻,你會驚奇地發現那些值得紀念的地標--你知道當時你跟神在一起!

我可不是指參加那些特會、還是活動的「紀念地點」喔!我們當中有人還不明白聖靈是有位格的,如果不明白這一點,我們就不知道何時進入更新的季節;當聖靈的火在某處點燃時,也不知該去哪裡。所以我們就感到孤單和遭到遺棄,我們應該要「在家裡耕種」!因為我們每一個人都應該和聖靈發展個別的親密關係,好讓我們勝過曠野的絕望,生命的果效在於我們是否蒙這位親愛嚮導引領。

我感到這是屬於這個關鍵時刻的先知性話語,我感到人們的心將會緊擁聖靈這一位有位格的神,聖靈將在這個關鍵階段到來,為著要帶來君王新郎。告訴祂,你想要個別的認識祂:「聖靈,我們想要更認識祢!請祢來破碎我老舊的心態,因為過去我遵守不同的規章、不同的教會文化,卻因此限制了祢的作為,求祢原諒我們,我們要認識祢,聖靈!我們要認識新郎最好的朋友!」

The wilderness isn't all bad; in the wilderness, we develop wonderful landmarks inside of us where we meet intimately with the Holy Spirit. As we continue through the wilderness, on the way to meet our lovely Bridegroom King we establish these "Places of Remembrance". During stressful times and hurtful issues, the Lord invites you to meet Him and make a holy covenant. Then, when you go through hard times in the future, you can look back at this place and know that you have met with God.
I'm not talking about an event or a conference as a landmark "Place of Remembrance". Some of us don't really know Holy Spirit as a Person. If we don't know Him in this way, then when we aren't in seasons of renewal, or we don't attend meetings where the fire is released, then we feel alone and abandoned. We need to cultivate this relationship at home! We each are responsible for our own intimate relationship with Holy Spirit so that as we go through the despair of the wilderness, we will immediately yield and lean on our Beloved Guide.

I feel this is a prophetic word for this hour. I feel that peoples' hearts will embrace Holy Spirit as a Person. He will begin to come to center stage because He brings the Bridegroom King. Tell Him you want to know Him personally. "Holy Spirit we want more of You. We ask you to break our outdated mindsets. Where we have limited You with different kinds of paradigms, or church cultures, we ask You to forgive us. We want to know You Holy Spirit. We want to know the Best Friend of the Bridegroom."
