Controlling Others Is Idolatry! = Witchcraft!

Control: Just Jesus Devotional
Control” as the world recognizes it, is a word not found in the Bible because God doesn’t use it. He doesn’t need to use force nor inflict His will on anyone. God is a Gentleman.

The devil uses control as force. This kind of control is rooted in fear and deceit. Even though God is in control, He does not exert control. He operates from a position of authority.

When you are in difficult circumstances, don’t ever believe the lie that the devil is in control. When you feel fear, wanting to control is a natural reaction.

Trying to control people or circumstances is idolatry. Don’t put yourself on God’s throne. Learn to let God’s love replace fear.

Use healthy self-control. Fear robs you of choice, but you have options. Being aware of your position of authority precipitates the power of choice.

Don’t try to control. Choose to use your God-given authority. You will feel strong and confident as you respond instead of react.

Memory Verse
