我怎么知道我自己的命运?

How Can I Know My Destiny?

我怎么知道自己的命运?

“Each of us,as a good manager of God’s different gifts, must use for the good of others the special gift we have received from God.” 1 Peter 4:10 (TEV)

“我们当中的每一个人,作为一个上帝赐予的天赋的优秀管理者,必须使用这些天赋去服务他人”1 Peter 4::1(TEV)

You have a responsibility to be a good  steward of those gifts – not for selfish uses, but for the good of others. 

Do you know what God created you for? Do you know what your destiny is? There are four things you need to do in order to fulfill your destiny. I want to take you through those things over the next few days using illustrations from the book of Esther.

你知道上帝为什么要创造你吗?你知道你的命运之轮转向哪里吗?为了履行你的命运,你需要去做四件事情。在接下来的几天里,我想通过《以斯帖记》中的插图来告诉你这些事情。

God gives you gifts

上帝给了你天赋。

The first thing you must do is recognize the gifts God has given you to use.These are the cards you are dealt in life. They include the things you can’t control – your parents, your nationality, your race, your language. They also include your SHAPE – your spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences. These are the things that make you uniquely you.

你必须做的第一件事情就是识别你所正在使用的天赋。这些天赋就像生活中各种你已经得到的卡片。他们包括一下不能控制的东西,比如你的父母,你的国籍,你的种族,还有你所说的语言。 他们也包括一些更深层的东西,比如你的精神领悟,你的感情,你的能力,个性和经历。这些事情使得你成为了独一无二的你。

Now you are not responsible for the gifts God didn’t give you. In other words, if you are not artistically gifted, you are not expected to paint pictures like Rembrandt. But you are responsible for the ones he did give you.

你不需要为那些上帝没有赐予的天赋负责。换句话说,如果你没有艺术细胞,你就不会被期望你画的画有伦布兰特(1609-1669,荷兰画家)那么好。但是你必须为那些你已经拥有的天赋负责。

When you get to heaven, God isn’t going to compare you with anyone else, but he will compare you with yourself. What did you do with what you were given? What could you have done if you had trusted God a little bit more? Romans 14:12 (NIV) says, “Each of us will have to give personal account to God.”

当你进入天堂,上帝不会拿你和别人作比较,但是他会拿你自己和你自己作比较。拿你所被赐予的和你的一生中的所作所为作比较。如果你更加的相信上帝,你会去做什么呢? Romans 14:12(NIV)说道,“在神那里,我们每个人都拥有一个个人账户。”

God gave Esther these gifts for a purpose.God has given you gifts for a purpose. And just like Esther, you have responsibility to be a good steward of those gifts – not for selfish uses, but for the good of others. Your gifts are not for your benefit. God gave you gifts for the benefit of other people.Esther had three assets that God gave her to use to fulfill her destiny. She was intelligent, beautiful and she had an attractive personality. Because of these qualities, “Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her … she then won the king’s favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen”(Esther 2:15b, 17 NIV).

上帝给Esther这些天赋是为了让他达成某种目的。上帝给你天赋也是为了达到某种目的。就像Esther中说的那样,你有责任成为你天赋的管理者–不是自私的使用他们,而是要造福于人。你的天赋不是为了给你带来利益而生的。上帝赐予你天赋的目的是为了让你服务于他人。上帝赐予了Esther三大资产去完成他的命运。Esther拥有过人的智慧,完美的脸庞,和令人艳羡的个性。因为这些特性,“每一个见过Esther的人都会爱上她……最终她赢得了国王的爱情,得到了比其他任何年轻女性更多的东西。因此国王在Esther的头上佩戴了一顶后冠并让她做了王后。”(Esther 2:15b,17 NIV)。

In order to know your destiny, you have to know your talents and decide how to use them. So I have a homework assignment for you.This week I want you to make a list of the gifts God has given you – don’t forget to include your SHAPE and the things you can’t control. Ask yourself,”What has God given me for good to use for good?”

为了能让你知道你所属的命运,你必须知道你的才能和知道怎样去使用它们。因此在这里我有一个任务要给你。我想你在这个星期里面列出你认为的上帝所赐予给你的天赋–不要忘了要把内在的天赋和那些你不能控制的天赋包括在内。
