Escaping Gravity: The Blame Game- Remedy Actions

Posted: September 30, 2016 in faith

These were the Remedy Actions from the message in the previous post.  Check them out to make sure you are on track!

Remedy: Holding up a mirror… Examine yourself “taking back” responsibility for your life is scary- it exposes you to the fear of failure. This is why so many people continue to see themselves as a victim.  Here’s the how:

1. Soul Searching: Search me and know my anxious thoughts Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.

Two things to look for:

  1. When you see others in a negative light, stop- pause- ask yourself am I projecting my negative feelings on them?
  2. Also, understand when others are criticizing you, they may actually be criticizing a projection of themselves.

2. Iron-Buddy– (Accountability) Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Real, genuine accountability is the key. Someone who will really tell it like it is.  

  • Example Nathan the Prophet confronts David, 2 Samuel 12

3. Confession: 1 John 1:8-9 “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

4.  Own Your Own- (take responsibility)

  • 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God gave us a spirit, not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
  • Galatians 6:3-5, 7-9 “If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction’ the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
  • Ephesians 4:29-32 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building up others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with who you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

    Better the second time around. There’s a lot to digest, but well worth it,
