How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

雅各書 James 1:1-8

1 做神和主耶穌基督僕人的雅各,請散住十二個支派之人的安! 2 我的弟兄們,你們落在百般試煉中,都要以為大喜樂, 3 因為知道,你們的信心經過試驗就生忍耐。 4 但忍耐也當成功,使你們成全、完備,毫無缺欠。 5 你們中間若有缺少智慧的,應當求那厚賜於眾人也不斥責人的神,主就必賜給他。 6 只要憑著信心求,一點不疑惑;因為那疑惑的人就像海中的波浪,被風吹動翻騰。 7 這樣的人不要想從主那裡得什麼, 8 心懷二意的人在他一切所行的路上都沒有定見。

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

Discussion Questions:

1. Experiencing God to be the Sovereign Lord, what circumstances in my life can I trust God for?
2. Experiencing God to be wise, what wisdom can I ask from Him for my present trials?
3. Experiencing God to be generous, how can I ask believing in faith without doubting?
