Sometimes there is a pay-off for constant self-pity, playing the victim, etc. The pay-off is attention. Another pay-off is using these things as an excuse for not achieving goals.
At first the attention is given by people who feel sorry for the person…..but ten plus years down the road people start to avoid people who play the victim.
It’s not that some don’t have reasons for their victim mentality. Years of devastation, betrayal, rejection and loss have occurred.
God wants to heal the years the locust have eaten away. Like my favorite song says, “He’s a way-maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness..”
Only His supernatural healing power will restore you!
…24The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25I will repay you for the years that the swarming locusts have eaten— the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust My great army that I sent against you. 26You will have plenty to eat, until you are satisfied. You will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you. My people will never again be put to shame.…
In His Unconditional Love,
