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.

Confidence IN Him!

I am confident, courageous, bold, and beautiful! I am creative, smart, wise, and kindhearted! I have an excellent Spirit, speak excellently because I have an awesome God!

Is this your confession? Make it yours today friends! He loves you with an everlasting love!

I have a God who looked past what I know of myself, and sees beyond my frailty, weakness, and inadequacies!

He reached down and lifted me out of the miry clay where I had made myself comfortable! God yanked me off that recliner and turned my eyes to see the burning bush not consumed!

He is Jehovah, El Roi, Eloah ‘Asah, my God and Savior, unchanging changer! I don’t know about you friends, but I do have to put a praise on!

Look at yourself my friend! See what God is making of all situation since you put IT in His hands! See the peace and joy that floods your being!

Praise the Lord with a dance! Shout from the mountain top! The Lord is good and His mercies endures forever!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Intimacy! He Knows You!All Nation!

Nothing is as soothing and calming to your soul as a being than to know that you are known, inside out and loved all the same. Your imperfection, weaknesses, inadequacies, all your shortcomings and much more is what qualifies you to be who you are! If you are without all those squirms, you actually are not qualified for a touch from him, Christ Jesus. 

textgram_1536146280321811886.pngChrist came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel first, he gave the command to take away all squirms. Matthew 10: 5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Last Testament – Christ Jesus also said in Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 1Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Friends, He knows you! Jesus knows you deeply! He knows all about you and factored you in before the foundation of the world was made. In all ramification, you are washed cleaned by his blood! You are made whole and complete in Christ – Colossians 2:10 

Are you a Jew or a Gentile? All nation are called, all with physical, emotional, mental, relational and all sort of infirmities are called! This is the gospel!

Those that know this must proclaim so that those others will hear and come! John 10:14 I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also.

Psalms 139:1 You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

My Love Like No Other!

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.

Your Joy Shall Be Full!

“When a woman gives birth, she has a hard time, there’s no getting around it. But when the baby is born, there is joy in the birth. This new life in the world wipes out memory of the pain.

The sadness you have right now is similar to that pain, but the coming joy is also similar.

When I see you again, you’ll be full of joy, and it will be a joy no one can rob from you. You’ll no longer be so full of questions.

“This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you.

Ask in my name, according to my will, and he’ll most certainly give it to you.

Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks!

Scripture’s Command!Loving Others!

“And don’t say anything you don’t mean. This counsel is embedded deep in our traditions. You only make things worse when you lay down a smoke screen of pious talk, saying, ‘I’ll pray for you,’ and never doing it, or saying, ‘God be with you,’ and not meaning it.

Be genuine! Be authentic! Be true!

You don’t make your words true by embellishing them with religious lace. In making your speech sound more religious, it becomes less true. Just say ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ When you manipulate words to get your own way, you go wrong. “Here’s another old saying that deserves a second look: ‘Eye for eye, tooth for tooth.’ Is that going to get us anywhere?

Here’s what I propose: ‘Don’t hit back at all.’ If someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you into court and sues for the shirt off your back, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life.

No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously.

“You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves.

This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.

“In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up . You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.”
