Watu wakijipata chini ya ushawishi wa Shetani, basi hawana upendo kwa Mungu ndani yao, na maono, upendo na azimio yao ya awali yamepotea. Watu walikuwa wakihisi kwamba walifaa kuteseka kwa ajili ya Mungu, lakini leo wanafikiri kwamba ni aibu na hawakosi malalamiko. Hii ni kazi ya Shetani; inaonyesha kwamba mwanadamu amemilikiwa na Shetani. Ukikabiliwa na hali hii ni sharti uombe, na uibadilishe haraka uwezavyo—hii itakulinda dhidi ya mashambulizi ya Shetani. Ni wakati wa usafishaji mkali ambapo mwanadamu anaweza kujipata chini ya ushawishi wa Shetani kwa urahisi zaidi—kwa hivyo ni jinsi gani unapaswa kumpenda Mungu wakati wa usafishaji kama huu? Unapaswa kuyaita mapenzi yako, kuuweka moyo wako mbele ya Mungu na kutenga muda wako wa mwisho Kwake. Haijalishi jinsi gani Mungu hukusafisha, unafaa kuwa na uwezo wa kutia ukweli katika vitendo kutimiza mapenzi ya Mungu, na unafaa kujitolea kumtafuta Mungu na kutafuta mawasiliano. Nyakati kama hizi, zaidi unavyokaa tu, ndivyo utakuwa mtu hasi zaidi, na ndivyo itakuwa rahisi zaidi kwako kurudi nyuma. Wakati ambapo inakulazimu kutenda kazi yako, ingawa huitendi vyema, unafanya kila unachoweza, na unaifanya kwa kutumia tu upendo wako wa Mungu; bila kujali kile ambacho wengine husema—ikiwa wanasema umetenda vyema, au kwamba umetenda vibaya—motisha zako ni sahihi, na wewe sio wa kujidai, kwani unatenda kwa niaba ya Mungu. Wengine wanapokuelewa vibaya, unaweza kumwomba Mungu na kusema: “Ee Mungu! Siombi kwamba wengine wanivumilie au kunitendea vyema, wala kwamba wanielewe au kunikubali. Naomba tu kwamba niweze kukupenda moyoni mwangu, kwamba niwe na utulivu moyoni mwangu, na kwamba dhamiri yangu ni safi. Siombi kwamba wengine wanisifu, au kuniheshimu, ninatafuta tu kukuridhisha kutoka moyoni mwangu, ninatenda wajibu wangu kwa kufanya kila ninachoweza, na ingawa mimi ni mpumbavu na mjinga, na mwenye ubora wa tabia duni, na kipofu, najua kwamba Unapendeza, na niko tayari kukutolea kila ninacho.” Punde tu unapoomba kwa jinsi hii, upendo wako kwa Mungu huibuka, na unahisi utulivu zaidi moyoni mwako. Hili ndilo linalomaanishwa na kutenda upendo wa Mungu. Unavyopata uzoefu, utashindwa mara mbili na kufaulu mara moja, au pia ushindwe mara tano na kufaulu mara mbili, na unavyopata uzoefu kwa jinsi hii, ni katikati ya kushindwa tu ndipo utaweza kuona uzuri wa Mungu na kugundua kinachokosa ndani yako. Unapopitia hali kama hizi tena, unafaa kujitahadharisha, kutuliza mwendo wako, na kuomba mara nyingi zaidi. Polepole utakuza uwezo wa kushinda katika hali kama hizi. Hilo linapofanyika, maombi yako yamekuwa yenye matokeo yanayotarajiwa. Unapoona umefanikiwa wakati huu, utafurahishwa ndani yako, na unapoomba utaweza kumhisi Mungu, na kuhisi kwamba uwepo wa Roho Mtakatifu haujakutoka—na ni hapo tu ndipo utajua jinsi Mungu hufanya kazi ndani yako. Kutenda kwa njia hii kutakupa njia inayoelekea katika uzoefu. Usipoutia ukweli katika vitendo, basi utakuwa bila uwepo wa Roho Mtakatifu ndani yako. Lakini ukiutia ukweli katika vitendo unapokumbana na mambo jinsi yalivyo, basi, ingawa unaumia ndani, Roho Mtakatifu atakuwa nawe baadaye, utaweza kuhisi uwepo wa Mungu unapoomba, utakuwa na nguvu ya kutenda maneno ya Mungu, na wakati wa mawasiliano na ndugu zako, hakutakuwa na chochote kinachosumbua dhamiri yako, na utahisi amani, na kwa jinsi hii, utaweza kufunua yale ambayo umefanya. Bila kujali yale ambayo wengine husema, utaweza kuwa na uhusiano wa kawaida na Mungu, hutazuiliwa na wengine, hutashindwa na lolote—na katika hili, utaonyesha kwamba kutenda kwako maneno ya Mungu kumekuwa kwa matokeo yanayotarajiwa.

How to Love God During Refinement

I

How should man love God during refinement? Accept it with the resolve to love Him. During this time you’re tormented inside. It will feel like twisting in your heart is a knife. But you’re willing to satisfy God with your love, and you do not want to care for the flesh. It’s what is meant by practicing the love of God. This is the practice during refinement. With love for God as a foundation, through refinement you’ll get closer to God, and you will be more intimate with Him.

II

You hurt inside, your pain’s become intense, yet you’re still willing to come before God and pray: “Oh God, I cannot leave You. There’s darkness in me, but I wish to satisfy You, it is true. Oh, God, I believe You know my heart. May You put into me more of Your love.” This is the practice during refinement. With love for God as a foundation, through refinement you’ll get closer to God, and you will be more intimate with Him.

III

In harsh refinement, man is prey to Satan’s powers. So how should you love God at a time such as this? Summon your will, lay your heart before God, devote the rest of your life to Him. No matter how He may choose to refine you, practice truth to please God’s heart, seek God and fellowship. When you serve your function, you may not do it well, but it’s all you can do, it’s all from love for God. No matter how people think, your intentions are correct, you are not self-righteous, for you act in behalf of God. This is the practice during refinement. With love for God as a foundation, through refinement you’ll get closer to God, and you will be more intimate with Him.
