Day 85, Yahweh: Not
2Kings 5:11 (Holman Christian

Yahweh is not co-dependent on
any man or woman ... and the servant of God must understand this lest they fall
into the trap of making their service to Yahweh a total disaster of
co-dependent guilting and ascribing their own worth to the assistance and

wretched humanity was not based on a personal need of discovering wholeness
through the deliverance of any creature ... Yahweh moved on humanity's behalf
... simply because Yahweh is ... whole.
It's in The Name.
Intercessory Prayer: Dear Father, thank you for Your wisdom and
power. Power to save and deliver. Wisdom to know when to let us go our own way
… receiving the full consequence of our wretched actions. For Your Name’s sake. In Jesus Name. Amen.
