ROMANS 14:10 AMP “But you, why do you criticize your brother? Or you again, why do you look down on your [believing] brother or regard him with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God [who alone is judge].”
Lord help us! I was on the phone with someone and for at least ten minutes they were being critical. My spirit was vexed. I began to pray that if I too have the spirit of criticism for Holy Spirit to show me and God to purge me and get it out in Jesus’s name. The spirit of criticism has to originate from some hurt or self-hate. So I pray that we are healed on the inside and filled with the love of Christ. Do we hear ourselves when we’re criticizing and judging others? God open our ears so we can hear ourselves and be convicted. Help us to love ourselves so we can see the best in others. Are you always critiquing others or situations? “Critique” is just a fancy way of saying criticizing. We have to leave these spirits that are not from Holy Spirit behind in order to move forward in the things of God. Dr.J.
