Victim Mentality (2 sermons)

194 pages3 hours


Victim mentality is a way of viewing yourself, and a way of viewing life, that causes you continually to fail in relationships and life.

The person will not take responsibility. Instead they choose to make excuses for why life is like it is, and to find someone or something to blame.

When you blame someone, you leave yourself powerless, and resentful at how life sucks. This is a way of thinking, it's an internal choice in your heart.

You can be a Christian with victim mentality, and no matter how much preaching you get, you never break out or change your patterns. We need to identify and change these heart beliefs, so we can unlock the potential and fulfil the destiny that God has for us.

Paul had some difficulties: beatings, stoning, shipwrecks. If God was on His side, you'd think that He could have at least told him to catch the right boat, but three times the boat he was on sank. He's there in the water, holding on to pieces of wood. Not nice - but he never, thought like a victim. In prison, chained to a Roman soldier, he never, thought like a victim, or as one imprisoned. He said: In all these things we are more than conquerors! Whatever you're facing in your life, believe me, you have got it in you, you are more than a conqueror. Of course if you don't believe that, if you think you're a victim, you're in trouble.
