Ono što te ne ubije me

Kada idete kroz teško razdoblje, ljudi ne uvijek znati što reći. Rezultat je besmislene klišeje ili banalno pokušaje da vas oraspoložiti. Uvijek sam imao problem s klišeja phrases- vrste koje ne znače ništa za osobu koja ih govori i ne zapravo pomoći osobi da ga čujem. Gluposti poput, "Chin up" i "To će biti bolje." Stvarno? Kako znaš? Vi ne učiniti svoje prijatelje nikakve usluge dajući im svjetlo, pahuljasto nade koje nisu ukorijenjene u ništa. Kad duboku bol hitova moramo rock solid istina da nas održi.

Tijekom svoje borbe s rakom, Christopher Hitchens izrazio slične frustracije s nekim od besmislenih fraza bacamo oko. On provodi nekoliko stranica napasti jednu od njih u svojoj knjizi, Mortality. On kaže, "Posebno, I malo su se prestali izdavanje najavu da "ono što te ne ubije, čini me jačim." "On odlazi na to reći, "U grubom fizičkom svijetu ... tu su svi previše stvari koje mogu vas ubiti, Zar ne ubije, i onda vam ostaviti znatno slabiji. "Ne može se samo osjećati 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 oslabiti i dovesti nas bliže smrti. Mogu zamisliti da netko postavlja pitanje, “Kako bi se nešto ta strašna me jača?” Čak i većina pozitivnih osoba može se razbiti zbog brutalnosti naše pale svijeta. Optimizam može opstati samo toliko batina dok ne razbija, i stvarnost napokon ga guši se. Fraze koje su nekoć zvučalo slatko sada čini bezvrijednima. Ali je dobro što znači osjećaj Hitchens je napao sve istina? mislim da da.

Kad je istina?

"Ono što me ne ubije, čini me jačim" može biti istina, ali samo ako postoji nešto izvan ovoga života. Ako ovaj život, ovaj svijet, a ovo tijelo su sve što postoji, Hitchens je u pravu. To je laž. To bi bilo kao da se kaže, "Što ne iznose moj auto čini jačim." To je smiješno. Morao ignorirati istinu vjerovati da. No, ako su naši privremeni pokusi imaju neku vrstu vječnog smisla to mijenja sve.

Pavao nam govori, "Sve rade zajedno za dobro onima koji ga ljube i zovu se prema njegovoj svrsi." Ovaj stih je ponekad zlostavljali, ali to je jedan od najljepših obećanja u čitavom Pismu. To ne znači da su kršćani nepobjediv. Svatko od nas će se suočiti suđenja, ali ne mogu se konačno poražen od njih. Čak i naši najgori neprijatelji, poput patnje i smrti, postaju naši prijatelji u Kristu, jer oni u konačnici rade u našu korist.

Pa kako mogu točno ove razorne suđenja zapravo čine nas jačima? Ovdje su tri načina (sa značajnim preklapanja):

1. Oni čine nas ovisi o Isusu

Kad sam se osjećati kao i sve u životu ide dobro, srce mi je odmah povlači u sebe-ovisnost. To nikad ne uspije. Počela sam moliti manje, jer sam podsvjesno pretpostaviti da ne nedostaje ništa. Sam postao ponosan, jer mislim da je razlog sve ide dobro. U tim vremenima, Ja zaboravljam da je Bog darovatelj dobrih darova, i ja još uvijek ga morate me održati. Ja sam uz pretpostavku da imam pravo na sve Njegove milosti.

Ali kad kušnje dolaze na naš način, Oni nam pokazuju vlastitu slabost. Bolest podsjeća kako je krhka smo, otpuštanja podsjećaju da je teško raditi ne jamči ništa, i sukobi nas podsjeća da trebamo Isusa u svakom području našeg života.

2 Corinthians 12 je utjeha mi je u vrijeme slabosti. Pavao je svjestan da mu je Bog dao suđenje "držati [mu] iz postaje uobražen. "A on kaže da ima vrlo rado u svojoj slabosti, i da je zadovoljan sa svim vrstama pokusa. Kako je Pavao mogao biti zadovoljan, pa čak i drago o Njegovim suđenja? Mislim da Pavao govori da su ti pokusi jasno da on treba Božju milost i moć. Self-ovisnost je slabost, i ovisnost o Kristu je snaga. Zato Pavao kaže, "Kada sam slab, onda sam jak. "

2. Oni nas čine više kao Isus

Nikada nećemo biti u stanju izdržati razorne suđenja sve dok ne shvatimo da je naša utjeha i dobro zdravlje nije ono što je najvažnije. Udobnost i zdravlje su dobre stvari koje je Bog hoće da nam se dati. Ali Božja primarna volja za naš život je da ćemo biti poput Isusa. On je čak i spremni za korištenje suđenja kako bi ostvarili taj. Hebrejima 12 kaže, "[Bog] odgaja nas za naše dobro, da postanemo sudionici njegove svetosti. "Trening u Božjem teretani može povrijediti ponekad, ali On će nas jači.

James 1:2 padne na pamet, gdje nam kaže da "Pravom radošću smatrajte, moja braća, kada susret iskušenja raznih vrsta…"Razlog zbog kojeg smo trebali računati radost je Kristo lik proizvodi. Naš poniznost je važnije od naše sreće. Bolje je biti fizički slabi i duhovno jak.

3. Oni čine nas dugo biti s Isusom

Naša srca su oslabljena grijeh, i često se nalazimo čežnja za više od onoga što ovaj svijet ima za ponuditi. No, kada se uzimaju privremeni radosti ovoga svijeta od nas, mi smo podsjetio da Zemlja nije naš dom. Naše građanstvo je negdje drugdje.

Volim ostati u lijepim hotelima, a kad ja pokušam iskoristiti sve perks. Ali onda sam početi propustiti svoju ženu, a onda shvatim da nemam odjeću Mislio sam da bi, a onda shvatim u sobu je oko pola dobar kao kuhanje moje supruge. To me podsjeća da ovaj hotel nije moj dom. Neispunjene želje da me dugo biti kod kuće. Ova zemlja nije tamo gdje pripadamo, i suđenja podsjećaju da je naš raj je negdje drugdje, s našim Gospodinom. Neće biti neispunjene želje u nebu, jer je naš Gospodin će zadovoljiti sve naše čežnje. On će ukinuti bol i sipati Njegovu milost na nas zauvijek.

Dakle, sljedeći put kada imate prijatelja prolazi kroz teška vremena, podsjeti ih da čak i većina tragičnih okolnosti koje bi nas jači. Ne kroz pozitivno razmišljanje i optimizam, ali kroz stvarne nade i stvarne promjene. A kad ideš kroz teške sezone, neka ga približiti Kristu. Nemojte se bojati, Gospodin je s vama.

Vjernik nada je izvan groba, iu sljedećem 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

    This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. Ali, opet, 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.

    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. Nastavi s dobrim radom, you are inspiring my 18 year old son to write music and keep up with his piano, stay blessed!

    Hi Trip,

    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!

    Your explanation of our fathers meanings always give me understanding. Thank you Trip and please continue to help to open my eyes.

    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!….. Stay blessed!!!!!!!!!

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