But there is a higher power who is watching all this and doesn’t let any bad thing befall His favorite people. That’s precisely the time in your life when you will be finally met with a few important signs God is exposing a narcissist in your life.

It’s on you to keep your eyes open and not neglect their behavior as immature or silly. They know what they are doing and they don’t care how their actions affect those around them.

They are hypocrites who pretend to have morals, standards, emotions, and conscience. However, they don’t practice what they preach. It’s time to unravel all the narcissists in your life who bathe in their own glory. 

16 Divine Signs God Is Exposing A Narcissist In Your Life  

Satan is the first and the top most narcissist in the Bible and in the entire world. He doesn’t care about anybody but himself. He is so self-absorbed that he can’t look at other people’s good deeds.

“They profess to know God, but they deny him through their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.” Titus 1:16.

That’s one of the first signs of a Christian narcissist. They will be disobedient and will go against the teachings of the supreme being. So, God is exposing a narcissist in your life when: 

1. They display irrational mood swings

One of the first signs of narcissistic behavior is irrational mood swings. Narcissists are known for being charming and lovable one moment and becoming angry and aggressive soon after. 

It’s as if they change their personality at the flick of their wrist. You won’t be able to predict a narcissist’s true nature because they seem happy one second and volatile the next, leaving you confused.

God is showing their real face to you when you are dumbfounded by their frequent mood swings.

Scientifically, this term is called narcissistic rage where the person will burst out their anger on you. As mentioned in the Bible, “Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!” Psalm 37:8.

It’s best to stay away from people who show their irritability over little things in a grandiose way.

2. They will lie their way out of trouble

Lies, lies, and more lies will be spewed by a narcissist. They will never speak truth and there is no limit to the fabrication of their stories because their whole life is built on their impressive ability to deceive others.

This is one of the narcissistic traits that God will expose when you have a self-centered narcissist in your life. Here are some reasons why they do it:

  • To inflate their self-esteem
  • They lie so they can one-up the other person 
  • They want to appear superior to others by cooking stories 
  • They are advertising their fake identity to make you fall in love with them 
  • They are losing interest in you and this relationship

There are six things the Lord hates and one of them is a lying tongue. So, when you catch someone lying through their teeth, it’s God’s way of showing you that they are a narcissist you need to stay away from. 

3. They will be judgemental of everyone 

Passing judgmental statements like, “Oh, did you see what she is wearing?” Or “She has such a loose character” are some of the lines an exploitative behavior narcissists indulge in. This is a negative trait in any human being and it will impact the concerned person’s mental health. 

When they exhibit narcissistic tendencies, they will make assumptions about everyone. These assumptions are often critical and apathetic. Also, they love creating rumors and spreading gossip like it’s no big deal. 

4. They will isolate you 

When you find yourself with no friends and family members, it’s one of the obvious signs God is exposing a narcissist in your life. Look what narcissistic abuse has done to you.

You don’t have any outside emotional support and you have no one to call yours. You have no one to pull you away from this except God. 

This is how a narcissist will slowly separate you from everyone:

  • They will insist on spending every second with you
  • They will try to sabotage your career
  • They will stop you from making new friends 
  • A narcissist will try to create fights between you and your friends 

Such behavior should be called out early in the relationship even if you are highly compatible to avoid future trauma and pain. 

5. They will use manipulation to serve their own desires

A narcissist’s mantra is “by hook or by crook”. When they want something, they will manipulate you to get it for them. That’s how it works. Their wish will be your command.

They will dominate the conversation when you are having an argument just to show that they are right and you are wrong. They will manipulate you by:

  • Gaslighting 
  • Love bombing
  • Guilt-tripping
  • Playing the victim card 
  • Starting a smear campaign 

They don’t know the meaning of personal boundaries and will keep invading them just to get on your nerves. This is one of the tell-tale signs God is exposing a narcissist in your life.

6. If you’ve lost your sense of self, then that’s God exposing a narcissist  

How will God judge a narcissist? By evaluating how they are in a romantic relationship. If you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore, it’s because the narcissist has succeeded in suppressing your sense of self. For example:

  • You have stopped practicing your hobbies and interests because every moment of your life is dedicated to pleasing their inflated sense of being 
  • You don’t have alone time 
  • You can’t think or talk about anyone else 
  • You question your opinions and feelings 
  • You downplay the things that bother you 

If you don’t act on this immediately, their narcissistic presence will suffocate you.

7. They think they are better than everyone else 

They have a grandiose sense of self-importance and they think the world should cater to their needs. They want to be the center of attention always and everywhere.

Also, they are proud of their being and God hates pride. “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Proverbs 16:5. 

Their malformed ego makes them believe that they are godlike and they are entitled to be treated as such. They think they deserve special treatment from everyone. That’s why none of the narcissistic relationships have a happy ending because they expect to be worshiped. And you can’t worship anyone but the Lord.

8. They will take credit for all the good things 

All the good things are done by them and the things that don’t go well are done by others. Why? Because they can’t do anything wrong. They think that they can never make any mistakes. It’s others who are at fault.

Being in a narcissistic relationship where you are always the wrong one can hurt your mental health. And never does a narcissist feel sorry for hurting you.

Relationships work only when there is mutual respect present. When one person thinks they are always right and makes the other person responsible for all the bad things is very problematic and unapproved by God. That’s why He is exposing this narcissist’s true nature.

9. They will say God will punish those whom the narcissist detests

People with narcissistic tendencies believe that they have some kind of a superior connection with God because they are God’s “Chosen One”. They think God loves them more than others and will never do anything to hurt them.

Sometimes they will even go to the extent of claiming that they are a prophet. They couldn’t be more wrong as this is one of the signs someone might be a spiritual narcissist. Also, God has warned its followers to stay away from false prophets. 

Along with that, they will use religion to their convenience. They will use religious slurs to shame the ones who don’t believe in God which is unacceptable.

“Don’t be hateful and insult people just because they are hateful and insult you. Instead, treat everyone with kindness.” Peter 3:9-17. 

10. They will cause continuous problems in your life

Narcissists are exposed by God when they try to create problems in your life. They picked you because they wanted something from you. Now, their purpose has been fulfilled so they try to fill the void in their life by trying to destroy yours.

It’s nothing but entertainment for them and it falls under narcissistic abuse. These things don’t happen in healthy relationships and you need to question their intentions clearly. 

If you are asking, “Why did God send me a narcissist?”, it’s because He wants you to become a stronger person. 

In Genesis 50:20, Joseph reunites with his brothers who tried to kill him. He tells his brothers, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.”

11. They will break your trust 

When God exposes a narcissist, you will be left with a broken trust and shattered heart because they don’t know what loyalty is. Opportunistic narcissists only care about their own desires and wishes. They will use manipulative tactics to blame their treachery on you.

This is one of the narcissistic traits that you need to consider as divine guidance by God. When you spot them, run for your life. That’s one of the obvious signs that God and the universe want you to stay away from someone.

They don’t know what healthy relationships look like owing to their childhood problems. They will cross personal boundaries just to hurt you and make you feel like you don’t matter to them. It’s best to follow spiritual practices and seek spiritual guidance to heal.

12. God is exposing a narcissist when they create chaos in your life 

When a narcissist’s double life is exposed, they will make your life hell. They found you attractive and started idolizing you by creating a fake version of you in their head, and when that image was smashed to smithereens, they blamed you for faking it. Then, the narcissist will bend over backward to destroy you from the inside out. 

Here are a few things they will do to make your life unbearable:

  • They will decrease your self-esteem by constantly criticizing your character, appearance, and behavior 
  • They will create confusion and control every aspect of your life. From what you wear to who you meet 
  • They will make you feel like you don’t deserve them 
  • They will trash talk about you to your close friends 

They won’t care about your emotional well-being and will try as much as they can to ruin your life. It’s God exposing a narcissist when there is no inner peace left. 

13. Their selfish nature 

Narcissists are excessively self-centered and that is God’s indication to you. “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.” James 3:16. Their own needs matter more than your peace and happiness. 

Plus, they won’t care about your emotional health either. When you are with such a person who is selfish and has self-centered ambitions and doesn’t mind drowning others to swim alone, it’s one of the signs they give extreme self-importance to themselves. 

If you want to have a spiritual journey away from misery and negativity, you need to open your eyes and witness all the hints the Lord is dropping for you.

This is one of the things God always does to a narcissist. He will show you their true nature which might shock you but you have no other option but to accept it and draw boundaries.  

14. They steal your limelight 

If you think narcissists tell on themselves, you couldn’t be more wrong. They like to maintain a perfect superstar-like image. They are their own PR and advertising agency. They will bask in their own glory and talk about their achievements to steal your limelight.

For example, let’s say you got promoted. They will say how they have a better job than you and earn way more than you do. Whenever you have something to be proud of, they will try to one-up you by flaunting their achievements.

It will be emotionally draining for you but you have to put on a brave front so they don’t break you completely. 

15. They blame their unhappiness on you

When a narcissist is denied something in life, they automatically think you are responsible for that rejection. You are responsible for their unhappiness, misfortunes, and bad luck.

They have self-sabotaging tendencies which they blame others for. Here are some of the statements a narcissist uses to appear as a victim:

  • It’s your fault I am stuck at my miserable job
  • Why do you always have to make things so difficult? 
  • I deserve someone better than you 
  • It’s your job to keep me happy
  • Sam thinks I am the best. Why can’t you be like Sam? 

God creates hurdles in everyone’s lives but that doesn’t mean they will blame you for them. Instead of blaming their inability to handle such problems, they blame you. That’s how God will expose a narcissist in your life.

16. God is exposing a narcissist when they project their flaws onto you

Narcissistic projection is a defense mechanism where people attribute their negative qualities, feelings, or behavior to others. They will project their own flaws, insecurities, and shortcomings onto someone else who is usually a target or victim. They do this to avoid facing their issues or taking responsibility for their actions.

“How dare you accuse me of cheating on you? I think you are cheating on me” or “The food is too salty? How about the tasteless food you feed me every day?”. You will hear such hurtful statements when you are with a narcissist who is disliked by the Lord. “If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.” James 1:26. 

Key Takeaways 

  • Narcissists burn your sanity and erode your self-esteem but God is watching 
  • God will expose a narcissist by shedding light on their lies, manipulative behavior, their selfish nature 
  • When you spot these signs, it’s best to confront the person instead of sweeping matters under the rug 

A narcissist can be your friend, boss, colleague, husband, wife, sibling, or even a parent. You don’t need to entertain and tolerate their exploitative behavior just because they are close to you. You can go against a narcissist when you recognize your self-worth. And now that you’ve figured out who they are and they should be scared of you. It’s time you start standing up for yourself.
