Ono što me ne ubije

Kada idete kroz težak period, ljudi ne uvijek znam šta da kažem. Rezultat je besmisleno klišea ili banalno pokušaja da vas razveseliti. Uvijek sam imao problema sa kliše phrases- vrsta koje ne znači ništa osobi ih govore i zapravo ne pomažu osobi da ih čujem. Gluposti poput, "Glavu gore" i "Biće bolje." Stvarno? Kako znaš? Ne radim svojim prijateljima nikakvu uslugu dajući im svjetlo, fluffy nade koje nisu ukorijenjene u ništa. Kada duboko bol hitova moramo čvrsta istina da nas održi.

Tokom svoje borbe s rakom, Christopher Hitchens izrazio slične frustracije sa nekim od besmislene fraze bacamo oko. On provodi nekoliko strana napada jedan od njih u svojoj knjizi, Mortality. On kaže, "Konkretno, Ja sam malo prestao izdavanje najavu da "bez obzira na ne me ubiti me jača. '" On dalje kaže, "U grubom fizičkom svijetu ... postoje sve previše stvari koje bi mogle da te ubijem, zar ne ubiti, a onda vas ostaviti znatno slabiji. "Zar ne možeš samo osjetiti radost?

Zvuči depresivno, ali mislim da je Hitchens je u pravu u smislu. Sasvim je moguće da možemo proći kroz teške stvari koje nas samo slabi i da nas bliže smrti. Mogu da zamislim neko postavlja pitanje, “Kako nešto mogao ovo strašno me jačim?” Čak i najpozitivniji ljudi mogu biti oborio po brutalnosti naših palih svijeta. Optimizam može opstati samo toliko batina dok se lomi, i stvarnosti konačno prigušnice ga. Fraze koje su nekada zvučalo slatko sada izgledaju bezvrijedni. Ali je dobro što znači raspoloženje Hitchens je napao ikada istina? Mislim da je tako.

Kada li je istina?

"Ono što me ne ubije čini me jačim" može biti istina, ali samo ako postoji nešto izvan ovog života. Ako se ovaj život, ovaj svijet, a ovo tijelo je sve što postoji, Hitchens je u pravu. To je laž. To bi bilo kao da kažete, "Ono što se ne ukupni moj auto čini jačim." To je smiješno. Ti bi da se zanemariti istinu da se vjeruje da. Ali ako naši privremeni suđenja imaju neku vrstu vječnog smisla to mijenja sve.

Pavle nam govori, "Sve aktivnosti zajedno raditi za dobrobit onih koji vole Boga i nazivaju prema njegovom cilju." Ovaj stih je ponekad zlostavljana, ali to je jedan od najljepših obećanja u svim Pisma. To ne znači da kršćani su nepobedivi. Svi od nas će se suočiti suđenja, ali ne možemo konačno biti poražen od njih. Čak i naši najgori neprijatelji, poput patnje i smrti, postaju naši prijatelji u Kristu, jer na kraju rade u našu korist.

Dakle, kako tačno da ovi poražavajući suđenja zapravo nas čine jačim? Evo tri načina (sa značajno preklapanje):

1. Oni nas zavise od Isusa

Kada sam se kao sve u životu ide dobro, moje srce odmah povlači u sebe zavisnost. Nikada ne. Počnem se moliti manje jer sam podsvjesno pretpostavljam da ne nedostaje ništa. I postao ponosan, jer mislim da je sve razlog ide dobro. U tim vremenima, Ja zaboravljam da je Bog davalac dobrih poklona, i ja mu još treba da me održi. Pretpostavljam da imam pravo na sve njegove milosti.

Ali kada suđenja došao naš način, oni su nam pokazali naše vlastite slabosti. Bolest podsjeća koliko je krhka smo, otpuštanja nas podsjetiti da naporan rad ne jamči ništa, i sukoba nas podsjeća da nam je potreban Isus u svakom području našeg života.

2 Corinthians 12 je udobnost za mene u vrijeme slabosti. Paul priznaje da mu je Bog dao suđenje za "držati [njega] postane uobražen. "A on kaže da je rado pohvaliti u svojoj slabosti, i da je sadržaj sa svim vrstama suđenja. Kako je mogao Paul biti sadržaj, pa čak i drago o Njegovom suđenja? Mislim da je Pavle kaže da su ovi suđenja jasno da treba Božju milost i moć. Self-ovisnost je slabost, i ovisnost o Hristu je snaga. Dakle, Pavle kaže, "Kada sam slab, onda sam jak. "

2. Oni čine nas više kao Isus

Nikada nećemo biti u stanju da duže razornog suđenja dok ne shvatimo da naš udobnost i dobro zdravlje nije ono što je najvažnije. Udobnost i zdravlje su dobre stvari koje je Bog uživa da nam daju. Ali Bog je primarna volja za naš život je da ćemo biti kao Isus. I On je čak spreman za korištenje suđenja da ostvari taj. Jevrejima 12 kaže, "[bog] nas disciplinuje za naše dobro, da možemo podijeliti svoju svetost. "Trening u Božje teretani ponekad boli, ali On će nas jači.

Džejms 1:2 padne na pamet, gdje nam je rekao da se "Count sve radosti, moja braća, kada smo se upoznali suđenja raznih vrsta…"Razlog zbog kojeg bi trebalo računati da radost je hristoliki lik proizvodi. Naš poniznost je važnija od naše sreće. Bolje je biti fizički slab i duhovno jak.

3. Oni nas dugo da se sa Isusom

Naša srca su oslabljeni grijeh, i mi sami često naći čežnja za više onoga što ovaj svijet ima za ponuditi. Ali, kada se uzmu privremeno radosti ovog svijeta od nas, mi je podsetio da Zemlja nije naš dom. Naš državljanstvo je na drugom mjestu.

Volim ostati u lijepom hoteli, a kad sam ja pokušati iskoristiti sve povlastice. Ali onda sam početi nedostaje mojoj ženi, i onda shvatim da nemam odjeću sam mislio da bi, i onda shvatim room service je oko pola dobar kao kuvanje moje supruge. To me podsjeća da nije moj dom ovaj hotel. Nezadovoljene želje da me dugo biti kod kuće. Ova zemlja nije gdje pripadamo, i suđenja podsjećaju da je naš raj je na drugom mjestu, sa našeg Gospoda. Neće biti neispunjene želje u raju, jer će Gospod naš zadovoljiti sve naše žudnje. On će ukinuti bol i prelijte Njegovu milost od nas zauvijek.

Dakle, sljedeći put kada imate prijatelja prolazi kroz težak period, podsjetiti ih da čak i najtragičnije okolnosti mogu učiniti nas jači. Ne kroz pozitivno razmišljanje i optimizam, ali kroz realnu nadu i stvarne promjene. A kad idete kroz teške sezone, dozvoli da te približiti Kristu. Ne boj se, Gospod je s tobom.

nada vjernika je groba, au narednom životu ćemo biti kao i sa Njim. So even what kills us makes us stronger.

    Thanks trip, that was exactly what I needed to hear right now. Going through a super tough time and His faithfulness to comfort his children never fails to amaze me.

    Awesome piece.I will do away with the usual cliches and instead advice those in pain from today onward to look on to the rock that is higher than i..Thank you sir

  3. Majklodgovor

    This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. ali, ponovo, it’s through God’s glory that we can manage through the tough times and realize that there is something greater than this world. What doesn’t kill me, or does, makes me stronger because it draws me closer to God.

    Mr. Tripp Lee

    I woke up this morning feeling conceited and sort of untouchable believing that since most things in my life were going on okay, then I don’t need to trust God even more. I was wrong and was reminded of it quite immediately as the day was progressing on. Thank you for your insight in this manner and I pray the Lord will show me Grace and pick me up from where I am.

    Your brother in Christ

    Been a rough two years, and this post is just bursting with honest truth. Much needed for this father of three girls, and husband to an author and speaker whose message has changed from the challenges of marriage and motherhood to persevering when all seems lost.

    Your track, Dobro sam, has been my theme song the past two years, putovanje. I don’t crank any song louder, and I couldn’t have asked God to pen words that spoke any deeper to my soul. There are moments when even the smallest thoughts of suicide crossed my mind. You sure feel like you’re at war when that’s the honest truth.

    But real hope and real change are much more worth it than giving up. That’s so true. There’s a fight to be fought for each of us. I appreciate you taking the time to pen these words, putovanje. I’ll be reading through this post a few more times. Praising God for speaking through you in our earbuds, on the stage, at the pulpit, in your home, and on the web.

    putovanje, keep writing man! Your last two posts have spoke to exactly where I’m at in life and I’ve come across them just when I needed to. God is undoubtedly working through you.

    What you said has help me to understand somethings and will mean alot to me. The message relates alot with what i have been going through for about 5 years and still going through now.Thank you Trip Lee.

  9. Tendekaiodgovor

    it’s true for the christian who walks by faith and not by sight.i have been in hard times; where everything was goings against my expectations.It became even harder to keep my trust in the Lord but because i knew that the pain i was experiencing was temporary and designed to make me stronger not to destroy me.i held on Jesus and here i am i prevailed.

  10. Charlesodgovor

    I think you have this piece contains a lot of truths. Certainly as a believer what does kill me or does only makes me stronger. God bless you and give you the insight to speak more of His truths to His people.

    Hi Trip

    Thank you for this message. I has really encouraged me because I have been having a tough time for around 12 godina, battling with an unheard of illness and I really want to deepen my relationship with God. I’m at the point where nowadays I just feel numb to emotions, but I believe that the Holy Spirit is urging me to trust Jesus and depend on Him.

    Such an enlightened post and really helps you put things in perspective, just lost my brother 3 months ago to multiple myeloma and my mum is in the severe stages of dementia I know that to be able to cope I have to draw my strength from God, and rejoice that the day before he pass he let me lead him to the Lord and gave his life. Keep up the good work, you are inspiring my 18 year old son to write music and keep up with his piano, stay blessed!

    Hi Trip,

    You always have a way of putting into words what I think but am unable to write. You have many true talents. Thank you for using them for what you were called to do. God bless you brother.

    I lost my job today and I can’t tell you how much of an answer to prayer this is! After I left I kept crying out tell me what to do tell me please. Now I know. I need to stay humble and realize the next job he gives me is from him not of my works!

    I agree that often times when people offer up the sayings you used, they don’t always make you feel better. My family and I experienced that this summer at my cousin’s funeral. He was shot and killed by someone he considered a friend, two days before his 19th birthday. None of the so-called encouraging words were helpful because the main question we all had was, ” Why him, he was just a ‘baby?” ali, afterwards we look back and see that even though it was a sad occasion it brought our family closer together and reevaluate our relationships with each other and with God. We also gained a new family member not soon after in his daughter, who could be his twin.

    This is so encouraging..God has never failed and he is not about to start with any of his children..we just need to keep hope alive and believe that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Rimljani 8:18 says for I reckon that the sufferings of this present times are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us..amen

    Yet again, I have been cut to heart!I am ill at the moment and I was wondering why the Lord was letting these things happened to me. In my boredom I was going through the FB pages of my favourite celebs and I came across your website. Alas! The Lord answered my prayer and spoke directly to me! (Through Trip) It’s like Trips messages are tailored just for me (That’s because the Holy Spirit is using him to minister to us)….God always rebukes me through him (his music,blog posts and sermons) I think I was focusing to much on this hotel that isn’t my home. So now I know why I am ill (what the Lord is trying to teach me through this trial)…God continue to bless you Trip Lee, it’s amazing that your ministry reaches us (the saints in Africa) and though we’ve never met, I feel like I know you personally because I can relate to everything you say. And because your music really rebukes, encourages, corrects, teaches me!….. Ostani blagoslovljen!!!!!!!!!

    Our humility is more important than our happiness.That really hit me man. Keep making that good music and God bless.
