Prayer For Cutting Idolatrous Ties To People
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers. Psalm 1:1
Walks ~ travel with, behave like, follow.
You’ve shown me that idols are not only things, but people. Thank you for revealing that to me. It was such a painful lesson but years down the road, I’m so glad You were hard on me. You were jealous for my affection; jealous to lead me by the hand, jealous to pour out Your provision so that I would know what it’s like to live as a much-loved child. My attachment to others had prevented me from turning to You and experiencing all of those wonderful realities.
Thank you for leading me to repent of my idolatry. How well I remember the moment I decided that I was terribly deficient and they were incredibly rich in what I thought I needed to feel safe and whole. I turned to them, created a bad soul tie, and the demonically fed attachment wreaked its havoc for years.
Thank you for the prayer You taught me to pray by the counsel of Your Spirit so that I could be free to put You at the center of my heart. Though that decision was hurtful to them, for they needed to be needed, it was still the right thing. Time has proven that. You will not share Your glory with another.
I love the life of faith. I love trusting You. I even love waiting for You because once Your answers come, they are always so much better than what I prayed for. You are my caretaker, the One to whom my soul belongs. By Your grace, I am ever on guard lest I consider making another unholy alliance. Flash the red lights of warning, my Father. Keep me safe in Your circle of light. Amen
