So around Christmas, I felt this need to do another program. I have done a few in the past, and they have done great wonders, for myself, and those involved. We had seen breakthroughts, chains broken, lives change, and transformed, people step into purpose, and walk into destinies.
So I decided to do another one, a little bit more challanging, but much rewarding in the end.
These specific holy spirit led programs required discipline, commitment, and faithfulness to the group, as well as dedication and accountability to the program.
You’re probably wondering, what exactly is Detox, and why do we need it?
Detox – is a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances.
Things that hinder our spiritual growth, and developmental process. Things that stand in the way of our Breakthrough, and block the blessing of God on our lives. Bad character, attitudes, fears, greed, lack of faith, doubts, bad habits, poor mindsets, vain imaginations, addictions, and preconceived thoughts and ideas.
The fact of a matter is, that none of those things are good for us, and most importantly block the presence, and move of God in our lives.
Unless we get rid it, we cannot move forward. There is an obsticle in front of us, and it’s blocking our viewsight. But oftentimes we don’t see it, or refuse to acknowkedge it for so many reasons.
Just because it looks good, doesn’t mean it’s good for us. The fruit in the garden of Eden looked good, and was enticing to sight, yet the fruit was filled with poison. Biting into the fruit, meant death, for humanity, and rebelion towards God.
The bible is full of examples, of things that looked good on the ourside, but inside are were rotten. Satan even pretends and masquerades as an angel of light, so he can deceive, and destroy people.
We, human beings make excuses, we blame, and point fingers, we stay comfortable, and we don’t want to change, we like the way things are, so why would we want to change anything ?
David, the psalmist, in Psalm 139:23-24 recognizes the need for change. He knows sin separates him from god, so he acknowledges the fact that he needs help, and is in need of a rescue. He knows he is a frail human being, prone to making mistakes. David, a man after Gods own heart, mighty warrior, cries out in desperation.
“HAVE MERCY on me oh God, blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.” Psalm 51:1,2
David admits his mistakes, and runs to God for help
” Remove what’s not pleasing to you, and get rid of that which is offensive to me. That which blocks me, that which hinders me, from being my best. Get rid of it, Lord! I give you permision to perform a surgery on my heart.” Psalm 139:23-24
David cries out with transparent heart, and broken spirit, and that’s what makes David different from the rest. Yes David sinned, yes David trangressed, committed adultery and killed a man, [sin makes us do crazy things!] but David runs to the father, and admits his fault.
“It is against you and you alone, that I sin, and done what is evil in your sight”. Psalm 51:4
David doesn’t hide behind his problems, he comes forward, to fix his mistakes. He acknowledges his fault, and runs to fix them.
“Create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
When we do our part of action, God steps in and rewards us for our obedience. When we willingly remove toxic things from our lives we are saying “God we desire to please you and honor you in all our ways.”
