I wasn’t going to post anything this morning, but the enemy is using love ones close to me, too break me down. I am praying for a breakthrough with my family. I’m praying for them to be release from the bondage the enemy keeps them in. There has been a generational curse being passed down. The enemy keeps passing down the shame among the women of my family and I’m here to put an end to that. I’m here to be the tipping point to destroy the enemies attacks. I’m here to destroy the curse the enemy keeps casting. I’m here to lift the women in my family out of the darkness, into the light. I’m here to forge, carve, write a new legacy where all of my generations will worship the Lord God and do his work and prosper. I’m here to create generations of Powerful Praying Women.
This is my message to them and anyone else fighting against the enemy for the sake of your family.
Thank you for reading!
Don’t keep accepting that attacks. People will always say, “I’m sorry”, that’s too easy. Don’t let them keep walking all over you. Don’t let them keep bringing you down. Don’t let them keep hurting you. Don’t let them keep bruising your heart. Don’t let them keep opening the wound. Don’t let them dump their hurt onto you.
Hurting people, hurt others.
This is true within your own family. They believe because of blood ties, they have the authority to tear you down. They have authority to say and do whatever they want. They have the authority to criticize and belittle you. They have authority to scar your heart, over and over again. No that is not right and that is not what God wants for you.
That is completely wrong! DONOT ACCEPT IT! God has the only authority over you. Just as God has defined his boundaries, he defines what is acceptable and unacceptable within his boundaries. God teaches us to create those same boundaries with other people, yes, even your own family.
Being respectful, humble, kind, and giving, does not mean you let others walk over you, because they are family. Use the word of God to remind them, your worth comes from the Lord, only God has the authority over you. You love, but trust and respect comes along with who you are. If they cannot respect you, then it is time to draw some lines of which they cannot cross.
Is this easy?
No because as we want to honor our family, God does not call us to be passive. He calls us to speak truth and pray for them. Let God be the meditator between them and you. Allow him to step in to change them. Take up your role as a prayer warrior, pray against the enemies hold on them. Pray for forgiveness in your heart, even if they never, sincerely apologize for their actions and behavior. We pray to forgive them, release them into the Lord hands, he can change them. Forge some distance, boundaries, where you end and they begin.
Ask God to give you help in this area.
