All My Pleasure is In You | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 36 –

All My Pleasure Is In You

It was really kind of weird. We have been praying in the same spot for almost a week, and all of the sudden I hear the word “witchcraft,” and I notice  cigarettes on the ground, people smoking cigarettes. Even though we have been praying in front of two new huge brand new medical marijuana shops, I’m just now getting it.

Witchcraft is powerful in our city. “Pharmakeia” is a big stronghold, it even entangles some in the Church. Drugs, pills, getting drunk with alcohol, blunts cigarettes… even the legal drug game is rampant. We won’t even start on how crack and weed and illegal drugs have ruined familes, communities, and destroyed entire urban areas with violence and gangs.

So I start praying, “Lord I turn from getting pleasure from chemicals to getting pleasure from You. All my pleasure is in you, all my fountains are in you. Flow through me. Help me to only get the physical pleasure that you allow. Then overflow my heart with the your spiritual pleasures through your Holy Spirit.”

We need to bring down the power of witchcraft and pharmakeia, even if its legal. Not all medicines qualify as pharmakeia. But be careful if you are getting addicted to drugs that just mask symptoms and don’t really do anything. We’ve got to use our authority over this. It’s got to stop in the Church! Let’s show the world that our God gives us true pleasure that doesn’t kill us in the long run.

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalms 16
