What is obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)?
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by uncontrollable, unwelcome thoughts and ritualized, persistent behaviors you are feeling pressured to perform. When you have OCD, you probably recognize your obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors are absurd but even so, you're feeling unable to withstand them and break loose.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
OCD causes the brain to receive caught on a specific thought or urge. While you don't derive a feeling of pleasure by performing such repetitive behaviors, they can offer some passing aid for the anxiety created from the obsessive notions. You may try to avoid situations that trigger or aggravate your symptoms or self-medicate with alcohol or drugs. However, although it could seem like there.
You can be healed from OCD in Jesus name!
Your Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) doesn't define you and healing is available through Christ's redemptive work on Calvary (Ephesians 1:7) through Inner Healing and or Deliverance. Inner Healing must not be looked at as a once-in-a-life-time event but as part of the ongoing sanctification process. In Luke 4:18 Jesus gives us a guide to follow after His footsteps to to heal the brokenhearted (Soul Wounds healed through Inner Healing) and to set at liberty those who are oppressed (Demonic spirits cast out through Deliverance).
Current estimates are that approximately 1 in 40 adults in the U.S. (about 2.3% of the population) and 1 in 100 children have this condition.
In Colossians 2:20–23, Paul provides us terminology for understanding the cycle of obsessions and compulsions is indeed ensnaring. Even back in biblical times Christians were dealing with the same kind of problems and issues we face today, OCD. In Colossians Paul talks about the elemental spirits and how they varying in rank of evil powers that exercise dominion over the material world. At one time, the Colossian believers were enslaved to these spirits, bound by a "listing of debt" (Colossians 2:14) for the trespasses. This is one of the symptoms of OCD (Doubters and sinners are terrified that if everything isn't perfect or done just right something awful will occur, or they will soon be punished). However, this debt was canceled by God at the cross. “He disarmed the rulers and authorities,” Paul writes, “and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him [Christ]” (Colossians 2:15).
But the Colossians, it seems, had forgotten that. Paul isn’t encouraging the abandonment of all moral restraint here. He has specific regulations in mind: “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” (Colossians 2:21). These regulations concern “things that all perish as they are used” (Colossians 2:22), things like food and drink that lack any intrinsic power to sanctify or defile the consumer. In Paul’s words, severity to the body is “of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh” (Colossians 2:23). The same kind of spirits that had the Colossians obsessing and being compulsive believing they were enslaved are the same kind of evil spirits that are having you be obsessive and compulsive.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
OCD obsessions and compulsions
Obsessions are involuntary ideas or thoughts, images in your mind, or impulses which occur over and repeatedly on mind. You can't discontinue them, although you really do not want these ideas. Regrettably, these ideas are upsetting and deflecting.
Compulsions are behaviors or rituals that you just feel driven to act out repeatedly.
Compulsions have been performed at an attempt to earn obsessions go away. Obsessive feelings usually come and behaviors and the rituals frequently wind up since they become harder and time-consuming causing stress. This is the brutal cycle of OCD.
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Most people with OCD fall into one of the following categories:
Washers are afraid of contamination. They generally have cleaning or hand-washing compulsions.
Checkers over repeatedly check things (toaster switched off, door secured, etc.) which they associate with harm or danger.
Doubters and sinners are terrified that if everything isn't perfect or done just right something awful will occur, or they will soon be punished.
Arrangers and counters are obsessed with symmetry and order. It's possible they have superstitions about numbers, colors, or structures.
Hoarders fear something awful will probably happen should they throw anything away. They hoard things they do not want or utilize. They may also suffer with different illnesses, like depression, PTSD, compulsive buying, kleptomania, ADHD, skin picking or even or tic disorders.
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
