Don’t Build Toxic Relationships

Messages And Revelations From Christ

Don’t build toxic relationships. A relationship that you cannot express yourself in, is a toxic relationship.

A healthy relationship will allow you to express your hurts, disappointments, and expectations. If you are upset, the other person allows you to express yourself without counterattack or shutting off with anger, verbal assaults or silence. You should also allow the other person to express his or her hurts without negative reactions. You cannot dictate to someone how to feel especially if the person is hurt and something triggered it.

A healthy relationship will allow you to talk through problems and work things out. Any relationship that does not allow you to talk through problems and creatively resolve conflicts is a toxic relationship.

A relationship where the offender refuses dialogue, and conditions for peace to be negotiated and met, is a toxic relationship.

Biblical Example and Case Study

Matthew 18: 15

15 “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. 16 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.’ 17 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.

  1. An aggressor must be willing to change and embrace peace. If not, he has failed the conditions for peace.

Hagar and Sarah

The Angel of the Lord appeared Hagar and commanded her to go and submit to her mistress. Hagar had introduced toxicity into the relationship and there was simply no need for that. Sarah dealt harshly with her and fled fled Sarah’s presence. When she left the relationship died but God intervened, and she changed her ways and conditions for peace was met.

An aggressor must change for peace to reign. There was no way that Sarah was supposed to put up with abuse and die of heart ache just to please Sarah or for peace to reign. It was not a case of Sarah please forgive Hagar, it was a case of Hagar please repent, behave yourself and give peace a chance.

If you are a Hagar, bringing unnecessary toxicity into a good relationship, please stop. Repent and give peace a chance.

Celebrate Christ

Resist the devil and he will flee. Do not fear the devil because the Bible never instructed you to fear the devil, rather fear God and resist the devil.
Keep on celebrating Christ and rejoice in the Lord always. Put on the complete armor of God and pray without ceasing. Thank God in all circumstances and crucify your flesh by the Holy Spirit. Focus on God and constantly magnify Him and His ability to heal, restore, renew, replenish, revive, rejuvenate, revitalize and deliver. See the greatness of God and the littleness of your problem.
Flee every appearance of evil and always keep your hands clean. Be as wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove.
These are the practical way of resisting the devil.

God Loves Humility

Be humble. God loves humility. He gives grace to the humble, and lifts them up. Crucify pride in your life today. Jesus said that we should learn of Him because He is humble and gentle in spirit. Gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Grace is the only road to the heartbeat of God and Jesus is the grace of God. This Scripture tells us that God gives grace to the humble. Pride is what is keeping a lot of people in spiritual defeat and failure. Anytime you refuse to pray and ask God for grace and wisdom, that is pride and that is the root cause of most of our struggles. The flesh keeps struggling and struggling instead of depending on the grace of God and praying for grace. It is only by the power of the Holy Spirit that we can crucify the flesh. We need help and the Holy Spirit is our helper. If we could do it on our own without the Holy Spirit, God would not have sent the Holy Spirit.

Run to God for grace and help today, in humility. It is only through humility that we can have victory over the flesh and the devil,

Living Faith

Make sure that your faith is not an idle, dead faith. Make sure you have works attached to your faith. It is by your works and fruits, that you prove that you are Christlike.

God is interested in your faith and your works. He wants you to have complete faith and complete works. Your works will always be an evidence of your faith but faith alone is dead. It is a deception. God wants us to live in complete submission to His will. He wants us to find out what pleases Him and do it with joy and pleasure. Let your faith be living and alive.

The Spirit And The Word

Do not ignore the Holy Spirit. Be led by the Holy Spirit’s voice. Be filled with the Holy Spirit, and bear all the fruits of the Holy Spirit. If all we needed was the written word alone, God would not have sent the Holy Spirit.

You need both the Holy Spirit’s voice, and the written word.

Good Fruits

Mary conceived Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. May you bear good fruits by the power of the Holy Spirit. May the mercy and glory of God rest upon you, and overshadow you, in Jesus name.

Good seeds, thoughts, fruits and works can only be conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is our helper and comforter. By ourselves we can do nothing.

Healthy Words

May the words of your mouth, and the thoughts of your heart be acceptable to God. May your words always minister grace.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14

This Psalm is very inspiring and helpful for our walk with God. If the psalmist could pray this prayer then we should realize that we need to constantly pray it. Walking right with God and walking in the Spirit can only be mastered by the help of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.

We need to constantly desire that our words and thoughts are right before God and then formally express that desire in form of prayer and petitions to God.

This is what it means to be a warrior. God wants to teach your fingers to fight. To fight is to fight sin. To fight death, judgement and Satan is to fight sin. Nothing else will do,. Victory means complete holiness.
