WORD TO PONDER: BREAKING
CODEPENDENT ADDICTIONS 9/11/06
The dark oppression of the
world’s carnality is moving towards gross darkness.
This is driving emotional sufferers to seek any kind of
momentary help for even a brief escape from torment.
Even among My own people, there are over 900 million who
are unable to get through a day without the temporary
fix of leaning upon an addiction.
Within the spiritual realm of
any codependent relationship, there is a symbiosis where
both parties must agree and come into team ship in order
to have their needs met. It is like seeing half of one
handicapped person connected to half of an alien body;
both riding in the same wheel chair and cooperating
together in order to accomplish a goal. They must
partner as a team in order to find the peace they
need. Dear ones, that is the description of My people
when joined with the demon of their addiction.
My people receive a temporary
fix for their emotional need, and the demon receives a
temporary fix for his ravening appetite. These
addictions are in many forms such as chemical
dependency, smoking, drinking, gluttony, reading,
television, media and entertainment of all kinds. They
spiral down to sexual sins of porn, masturbation, and
sexual contact outside of marriage. They also relate to
childhood emotions of bonding to people in codependent
relationships that are destructive and abusive.
I have grieved over their
torments and want My people set free from the spirit of
the world that drives them to codependent addictions for
comfort. These idols are taking My place as Comforter
in their hearts, motives, habits and choices. These
false gods provide a counterfeit peace that is a
temporary escape from the oppression of the soul. I
want My children to walk fully stable in their right as
royal children of the King. I want them to be My
vessels of glory and not demons.
This is a massive need,
please lift up this intercession on a corporate level
and begin to break the dominion of emotional,
codependent addictions that are holding My children back
from their rightful inheritance in Me.
2 Chron 7:13-15 NKJV
When I shut up heaven and
there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the
land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people
who are called by My name will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin
and heal their land.
