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

“Allow it now, for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Matthew 3:15.

Declaration Prayer: Just Jesus – Answers for Life

Jesus is the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.

And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was whipped so we could be healed. This is my Jesus, Whom I love and serve.

Inspired By: Revelation 22:16; John 1:1-5, 14; Isaiah 53:2-5.

Knowing Him!

A bystander said, “Master, will only a few be saved?”

He said, “Whether few or many is none of your business. Put your mind on your life with God.

The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention. A lot of you are going to assume that you’ll sit down to God’s salvation banquet just because you’ve been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives.

Well, one day you’re going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you’ll find the door locked and the Master saying, ‘Sorry, you’re not on my guest list.’ “You’ll protest, ‘But we’ve known you all our lives!’ only to be interrupted with his abrupt,

‘Your kind of knowing can hardly be called knowing. You don’t know the first thing about me.’ “That’s when you’ll find yourselves out in the cold, strangers to grace.

You’ll watch Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets march into God’s kingdom.

You’ll watch outsiders stream in from east, west, north, and south and sit down at the table of God’s kingdom. And all the time you’ll be outside looking in—and wondering what happened.

This is the Great Reversal: the last in line put at the head of the line, and the so-called first ending up last.”

The Companion! His Spirit!

“If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.

This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!

“I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you.

“The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that’s who loves me.

And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him.”
John 14:15‭-‬21 MSG
