Fasting From Negative People
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from people who are …Controlling and Don’t Respect Your Boundaries
Today I wanted to jump into your inbox to talk to you about people who are controlling and don't respect your boundaries.
One of the hallmarks of a controlling person is that they do not respect other people’s boundaries. It’s not easy to deal with a controlling person. Controlling people can be very pushy, manipulative and make you feel like you have to always do what they say.
There are many ways to deal with controlling people, but one of the most effective ways is to set very clear and non-negotiable boundaries so that the controlling person knows what you will and will not tolerate. It’s important to work on caring for yourself and standing up for yourself to avoid being drained by a controlling person.
Establishing and respecting boundaries allows each of us to develop and express our own identity, and have the room to freely grow and thrive. We show respect, humility and love for one another when we respect other people’s boundaries. Even God sets boundaries for us (in love, and for our own good).
Today, take a step back and assess your relationships with people who try to control you, so that you can evaluate whether or not you should come out from among them. *****And if you are in a position where you are not yet able to come out from among them physically, then come out from among them spiritually and psychologically by creating some emotional distance and making sure you put on the whole armor of God before dealing with them.
If you are find that you have a tendency to be controlling towards others, ask God to search your heart and renew a right spirit in you.
Today Is A New Day
It’s new because the sun has risen this morning.
It’s new because you have arisen to meet it.
And the risen version of you has the power and capacity to rise to the occasion and handle your business for today.
Remind Yourself: … “Withdraw your foot from your neighbor's house; lest he be weary of you, and so hate you.” (Proverbs 25: 17)
PRAYER: You can prayer the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
