Yahweh, Day 85
Day 85, Yahweh: Not "Co-Dependent"
2Kings 5:11 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
“But Naaman got angry and left, saying, ‘I was telling myself: He will surely come out, stand and call on the name of Yahweh his God, and will wave his hand over the spot and cure the skin disease.’”
The person plagued with co-dependency allows their perceived state of happiness to be determined by another person that is usually a wretched individual.
It is usually a son or a daughter, husband or wife, or some significant person in their life. The wretched person finds myriads of ways of convincing the person that truly cares about them that if the person who cares would just give them one more break then the wretched person's life would be changed.
And this is repeated over, and over, and over again ... slowly destroying the life of the dear soul that is always trying to rescue the wretch ... to the point that the rescuer's sense of self-worth and personal value becomes totally consumed in the madness of trying to make the wretch ... whole.
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 deliverance of some wretch who will do all in their power to drag you down the same road of insanity.
Yahweh's movement to rescue 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.
