Krisisse - How to handle the ‘curve balls’ in Life...?!?

Tiener Bybelstudie Reeks

Hierdie reeks studies hoef nie in volgorde bestudeer te word nie, dit volg nie op mekaar nie buiten vir die studies wat ‘n deel 1 en 2 het. Soek al die teksverse in jou Bybel op. Dis belangrik om die teksverse te lees om te sien wat in die Bybel staan aangaandie die onderwerp. Dit sal jou ook help om jou Bybel beter te leerken.

Definition of "crisis" = a calamity or event which disrupts a person's sense of well- being and lifestyle. It is generally short term and requires immediate action in order to restore balance and control in the person's life.

  • The results of crisis are: anxiety, bewilderment, confusion, desperation, anger, helplessness and even apathy.
  • Daar is toename in afhanklikheid op ander, ‘n gevoel van dringendheid en ‘n afname in besluitneming en doeltreffendheid in alledaagse pligte, die normale roetines van die verlede is nou te veel om te hanteer.

Psalm 56v3 “My vyande (krisisse) vertrap my die hele dag, want mense vertrap my; hy wat my beveg, verdruk my die hele dag.”

Onthou: Elke enkele Krisis wat oor jou lewe kom; Bring jou voor ‘n keuse te staan:

  • Gaan jy in histerie verval ( Panic )
  • Gaan jy raas/skree/baklei
  • Gaan jy God verwyt & beskuldig
  • Gaan jy die krisis op jou eie manier wil probeer oplos & ‘n gemors maak daarvan
  • Gaan jy die krisis onderdruk & maak of dit nooit gebeur het nie

Wat maak jy met die Krisisse wat oor jou pad kom...?

  • In Groep verband deel bietjie met mekaar. (kringleiers kan deel uit persoonlike ondervinding)

Hoe is ons ‘behaviour’ gewoonlik in ‘n krisis?

  • Word jy deur vrees gedryf
  • Word jy deur kommer gedryf
  • Word jy deur angs gedryf
  • Of word jy deur jou ego gedryf om te dink ‘EK’ kan my eie krisisse hanteer, in my eie krag.
  • Baie kere word ons gedryf deur moegheid en moedeloosheid, jy weet mos hoe jou emosies met jou weghardloop wanneer jy fisies moeg is.

Desperaatheid / Hulpeloos / Stres / Oor Emosioneel / Hewige druk

Hoe moet ons ‘behaviour’ dan wees in tye van krisis?

  • Fokus jou aandag op God en nie op jou probleem nie.
    Onthou: Jesus Christus is ALTYD groter as jou probleem.
  • Remind jouself van die ‘past’ victories wat God jou gegee het en van Sy getrouheid in die verlede.
  • Kyk na die Feite van jou probleem ipv om dit te ‘deny’ en maak of dit nie daar is nie.

Josua 1v9 “Wees sterk en vol moed; wees nie bevrees of verskrik nie; want die Here jou God is met jou, oral waar jy heengaan.”

Hoe behoort ons ons krisisse te hanteer?

  • Gaan na die Here toe en bespreek die saak met Jesus.

      1Petrus 5v7 “ Werp al julle bekommernis op Hom, want Hy sorg vir julle.”

  • God wil hê, dat jy in stilte by Hom gaan sit en Hom van jou krisis sal vertel.
  • God bring helderheid van verstand en sal vir jou helderheid gee oor jou krisis.
  • God bring perspektief op die krisis en dan kom die ware feite na vore.
  • God stel belang in jou en in elkeen van jou probleme.

Verdere strategie om krisisse te hanteer

  • Stel ‘n plan van aksie op oor hoe jy te werk sal gaan om deur hierdie situasie te kom.
  • Werk volgens jou plan van aksie met selfdissipline en determinasie.
  • Belangrik: Bly afhanklik van die Here, bly in gebed en soek die Here vir Sy Leiding en wysheid.
  • Geloof en werke gaan hand aan hand, sonder geloof in die Een wat groter as jou probleme is, sal al jou ‘efforts’ fataal wees.

     Jou vermoë om krisisse te hanteer is direk verwant aan die hoeveelheid kennis wat jy van God en Sy geskiedenis met Sy kinders het.

  • Op grond van die kennis wat jy van God het en op grond van jou vorige ondervindings met God maak jy nou `n bewuste keuse: om aan Hom te bly vashou omdat jy weet dat Hy `n groter plan met hierdie situasie het.
  • Geloof is `n wilsbesluit, gegrond op kennis en vorige ondervinding, om op God en sy plan met my te vertrou eerder as om emosioneel ‘in the moment’ te reageer.

“Jou Geloof moet jou Omstandighede beïnvloed,

nie jou omstandighede jou geloof nie.”

Onthou: “A crisis can capture anyone's attention. But the response to a crisis can vary greatly from person to person.”

  • Sommige mense word verbitterd en hard/koud en ongenaakbaar.
  • Ander mense verduur in stilte die krisis tydperk maar leer niks daaruit nie.
  • ‘n Klein groepie mense vind dat hulle lewens verdiep en versterk het en die ondervinding hulle nader aan die Here gebring het.

'n Rein hart gevul met die Heilige Gees

Met die ondervinding van wedergeboorte (Joh. 3:3) én die bevestiging daarvan deur die getuienis van die Heilige Gees (Rom. 8:16), vind ‘n radikale verandering van lewenswyse plaas (2 Kor. 5:17). Hierna volg ‘n proses van selfontdekking wat lei tot die behoefte aan ‘n dieper innerlike verlossing (vrymaking) en reiniging van die inwonende sonde asook die vervulling met die Heilige Gees.
In Heb 3 & 4 wys die skrywer vir ons die wonderlike belofte van God se rus, wat ‘n rein en oorwinnende lewe in Christus is. Hy vertel van hierdie belofte, en dan vermaan hy die Hebreërs in hoofstuk 5:12-14 dat hulle moet voortgaan na volwassenheid want hulle is nog kinders in die geloof.
Hier besef die weergebore Christen dat ‘n dieper werk in sy hart benodig word. Dat daar dinge is waaraan hy dalk nog vasklou of sonde wat hy nie wil laat staan nie of hy twyfel en vertrou God nie volkome nie. Hier gaan ons kyk na wat die stryd in ons binneste is en hoe om die pad na heiligmaking te begin.

Kol 2:6: Soos julle dan Christus Jesus, die Here, aangeneem het, wandel so in Hom, 1. Watookal die Here vir jou sê, doen dit. Joh 2:5 “Sy moeder sê vir die dienaars: Net wat Hy vir julle sê, moet julle doen.” - Moenie meer of minder doen nie, doen net dit wat Hy gesê het. Matt 28:20 “En kyk, Ek is met julle al die dae tot aan die voleinding van die wêreld. Amen.” – As ek doen wat Hy sê sal Hy met my wees. Doen wat Jesus sou gedoen het. Meet alles altyd hieraan.

Col 2:6 As therefore ye received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, 1. Whatever the Lord tells you to do, do it. Joh 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” Don't do more or less, but, just that which He tells you to do. Mat 28:20 “teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” If you do what He tells you to do, He will be with you unto the end of the world. Always do what Jesus would do, measure everything according to this rule.

Hoe hanteer ek dit?

Mat 5:4 Salig is die wat treur, want hulle sal vertroos word.
Binne in die moeilike tye is die Here reeds besig om iets nuuts te maak, al sien jy dit nie raak terwyl jy in die vuur is of deur die rivier gaan nie. God het ‘n plan. Rou is natuurlik en is iets wat moet gebeur, dit is ‘n proses om deur te werk, maar daarna moet jy ook aan beweeg en nie hier vasval nie.
