Open Heaven 13 June 2023: Personality Disorder
MEMORISE: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Romans 1:28
BIBLE READING: ROMANS 1:28-32
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Personality disorders are becoming more and more common, even amongst children of God. These disorders typically involve patterns of behaviour and thinking that usually makes it difficult to form and maintain a close relationship with God. They also make it difficult to meet the daily demands of one’s personal , spiritual, and work life.
Expert say that this personality disorders can be identified by three major characteristics: intense and unstable emotions, eccentric and odd behavior or extreme fear and nervousness. Some studies have also shown that personality disorders are often associated with high levels of self-injury and are even sometimes linked to suicide.
The situation is so bleak that Job 10:22 describe it as, “A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.” I pray that you and your loved ones will never experience this in the name of Jesus. If you are already experiencing this, may the power of God deliver you today, in Jesus name.
Several passages of the Bible confirm that spiritual personality disorder could come through three major sources : as an attack from the enemy (John 10:10), self-infliction (Mark 7:23, Galatians 5:21), or as a divine curse, a repercussion of sin, as recorded in 1Corinthians 3:17.
Deuteronomy 28:20, also says: “The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.”
Repent of all your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Jesus intervened and restored several cases of personality disorders and insanity to wholeness by His word. I therefore decree in the name that is above every other name : Be delivered from every spiritual personality disorder and insanity today, in the name of Jesus.
REFLECTION: Father, heal everyone suffering from spiritual personality disorder and insanity, in Jesus name.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: PSALM 43-49
