When Self-Pity Rears Its Ugly Head

So often when we are full of self pity, we think we alone are suffering, when actually that is just the ploy of Satan to make us feel singled out, and angry at God for allowing pain or hurt, or whatever is troubling us.

He is not telling us to never have feelings, but to take them to HIM. It’s okay to be angry, God knows you are anyhow, but just take it to HIM.

Get it out, and you’ll feel a whole lot better taking it to Him who has huge shoulders, and can bear with us the pain.

When we continue with perceived slights, that only leads to more torment.  Then the enemy is happy that he has separated us from God.

He is like a wolf with a pack following him, that separates the weak lamb from the flock so that he can devour it.

So we cannot afford to give in one iota to the enemy’s schemes.

But also know that if you blow it and have your pity party, it’s okay.  God understands.

YOU are the apple of His eye, just like we dote over our children, so He dotes over you.

But He expects you to get over it, and grow up and let go of all unforgiveness and anger. He will help you through it and give you the grace to do so if you ask.

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 New International Version


Father, I ask YOU to forgive me for giving in to self pity.

I renounce self pity, and rebuke the spirit of self pity in the name and the blood of Jesus.

Father show me when I give in to the thoughts it puts in my head, that I may not give in.

Help me to take every thought captive to the LORD Jesus Christ.

Help me to stop resenting anything from my past and pull out any root of self pity that I can walk in wholeness and liberty with You.

In the Name and the blood of Jesus, I say that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and I know that You love me LORD, and thank you so much for Your patience with me.

Help me to also forgive anything that anyone has done to hurt me.

Help me to be quick to forgive, quick to listen and slow to speak.

Give me Your wisdom to see through the strategies of the enemy Father, in the name and the blood of Jesus.

    1. Lol, I know what you mean, Annie. No one wants to come to them . . . best done on our own (on our knees in prayer). 🙏 🙌 x


    1. I’m glad you found the prayer helpful, Linda, though you have suffered much grief lately that no one could ever blame you for feeling in the slightest bit sorry for yourself at the moment.
      Have a lovely Sunday. x
