Have you ever met someone who always plays the role of the victim? I guarantee you know exactly what I am talking about. It’s the person who always thinks that everything is always someone else’s fault. They blame their doctors, their body, their family member, their friend, their co-workers, their spouse or even worse, God! The victim mentality can always easily be identified with someone who is still lying on their mat days, weeks or even years after something happened to them.
We live in a world that is full of victims. They blame others and they blame God. There are so many victims that people have created their own theology around their victimhood. Many act as though it’s much easier to blame God for something than take responsibility for themselves. Wow! Can you relate? Have you ever blamed God because he didn’t do something? He didn’t answer your prayer? He didn’t heal you? If you don’t take away anything else from this blog post, you must know, it’s not his fault!
So many Christians spend time begging God to move. They beg him to answer their prayers. They beg him to heal. But you know what? God gave you the authority to heal the sick and to receive by faith what he has already provided. God’s already moved. He has done everything and it’s your responsibility to receive. God is not going to do for you what he told you to do.
Romans 8:17 says”And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided that we accept his sufferings as our own.”
You are God’s co-heir and it’s time to start acting like you’re his co-pilot, not passenger. It’s time to start accessing your inheritance and using your authority. It’s time to stop blaming other people and God and instead take responsibility for yourself. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You are not an orphan, you are adopted. It’s time for Christians to take responsibility. Not just for your actions, thoughts, time, money, how you treat others and yourself, but it’s time to take responsibility for your life by using the authority God has given you. Stop making excuses, stop limiting God, stop blaming other people and start taking responsibility!
