Stop tolerating toxic people in your life, speak the truth in love and humility: then move on without guilt or regret!
The Spirit of God is giving many supernatural strength to break free from destructive cycles in this season.
Toxic people will only take and never give, they will suck the life and joy out of you and make you feel unworthy and undervalued.
Toxic people will manipulate, judge, undermine, criticize, gossip, never apologize and lie.
It is time to say, “No more!”
Surround yourself with people who are life giving, who will speak the truth you need to hear, but carry the heart of God for you.
Taking a step back. Praying for a toxic person will give God an opportunity to work deeply in their lives!
No! It’s not a sin to step back from toxic people. See Matthew 10:14, and Matthew 18:15-17 :-
“…..and whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.”
“Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”
Set boundaries against harmful relationships. This will save your emotional energy for pursuing God!
“Walk with the wise and you will become wise; associate with fools and you will get in deep trouble,” Proverbs 13:20.
Yes! Even Jesus set healthy boundaries around His life to preserve His priorities and protect His mission.
Setting healthy boundaries is loving, liberating, life-giving, releasing, restorative and reviving to every area of your life!
Don’t be surprised when the enemy robs you blind. If you give him room he will take all he can get! So: Defend your borders!
Don’t give the devil any opportunity [to work] (Ephesians 4:27).
The enemies goal is always to establish a foothold in your life in order to take over more and more of your life. Be aware!!
Blessings to you all.
