27. Outside, Not Underneath

Listen on:

“You don’t have to love people from underneath their problems and issues. You get to love from outside.” This comment from Father fundamentally changed how I do relationships. 

We all have relationships. How we approach them drastically effects our own experience of life, as well as the experience of those around us. A few years back God fundamentally changed how I approach them, and I can’t wait for you to hear it. This episode will help you discover areas in your life where you are carrying people in an unhealthy way, and equip you to let go of people’s wellbeing and entrust them to God and His goodness. Enjoy! 



Think and ask God, “In what relationship am I loving from underneath the weight of their wellbeing?”

Step 2

Take a moment a pray this prayer, “God, I thank You for Your love and goodness for them.”

Step 3

Pray this, “I surrender their wellbeing to you. Holy Spirit, help me let go and love from the outside.”

Step 4

Read Jeremiah 32:40 with them in mind. “I have made an everlasting covenant with them. I will never stop doing good for them.” And then thank God that He will never stop doing good for them.
