The Need to Be Needed

Codependency is like a relationship addiction. It creates an unhealthy dependence on others and can lead to being controlled or manipulated. In these Keys for Living, learn how you can break free from codependency, how to establish healthy relationships, and how only God can satisfy your deepest needs.

You’ve probably heard about getting hooked on drugs or alcohol or being glued to a slot machine from sunup to sundown, but is it possible to actually become addicted . . . to a person? Sadly, the answer is Yes! Codependency is a relationship addiction. Comparable to depending on false gods that are powerless to help, or depending on a broken water well that won’t hold water, it simply won’t work! In these Keys for Living, find ways to break the chains of relationship addiction and foster a renewed commitment to keep Christ first in your life.

Do you need people to feel good about yourself?

Do you believe the lie that you need people in your life so you can feel good about yourself? Do you think you need the approval of others to determine your worth or to feel important? Are you expecting people to meet all of your needs?

If you live your life with a misplaced dependency on others, you will miss the extraordinary relationship God has planned for you with Him.  In order to break a pattern of having codependent relationships, you need to be able to break the lies you believe, lies that keep this codependent pattern in place. Replace them with God’s truth so that you can live your life dependent on Him.

God desires to give you hope as you face life challenges, problems and difficult trials. The good news for us, God specializes in redemption and transformation. He takes that which was lost and restores it. He takes that which was dead and gives it life. He takes that which had no hope and rewrites its story. This is our God! As you pray today, ask God boldly to transform the thing inside you that you want to see changed forever!

 Examine your patterns of codependent thinking.

Acts 24:16
