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.

True Self! Be Authentic!

By this time the crowd, unwieldy and stepping on each other’s toes, numbered into the thousands.

But Jesus’ primary concern was his disciples. He said to them, “Watch yourselves carefully so you don’t get contaminated with Pharisee yeast, Pharisee phoniness.

You can’t keep your true self hidden forever; before long you’ll be exposed. You can’t hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known.

You can’t whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public; the day’s coming when those whispers will be repeated all over town.
Luke 12:1‭-‬3 MSG

My True Status! Not What My Adversary And Circumstances Says!

Brethren, do not be bewitched to disobey the truth. No one shall be justified by the works of the flesh/law! Christ Jesus died for You! Faith in Christ’s birth, death and resurrection is what justify you Galatians 3:1 -9

It is that same faith in Christ Jesus that excludes you from the curse of the law. For Christ bore the curse on that tree at Calvary. He took upon him your curse, so you are free of curses by faith in him alone! That’s all! Faith in Christ excludes you from the curse of the law! Don’t you let anyone deceive you that you are cursed as a believer! Galatian 3:10-14

By faith in Christ Jesus you enter into the changeless promise God made with Abraham. You shall be blessed and be a blessing. By you all the nation’s of the earth shall be blessed and much more.

The covenant between God and Abraham belong to Christ, and since you have faith in Jesus, all the promises belong to you too! Brethren, you are joint heirs with Christ, the seed of Abraham, a child of promise!

May this truth permeate your being. May the truth of who you are in Christ Jesus birth confidence and courage in you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Staying On Faithland!

There was a priest named Zachariah, and his wife Elizabeth, is from the lineage of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the SIGHT of God, observing all the Lords’s commands and decrees blamelessly. BUT they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. Luke 1:5-7.

What happened here? How can a couple with such a resume be fruitless? They were righteous in the sight of God and yet childless! Did God not say the fruit of the womb was a reward?

Psalms 127:3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offsprings a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Did God deliberately shut Elizabeth’s womb? Why would God withheld His reward till they were very old?

God had special plan for them. His reward was John, who is predestined to be the Lord’s forerunner.

Friends, please note that delay is not denial!. When you pray, and it seem your prayers are not been answered, be persistent and be filled with gratitude! Absolutely!! Gratitude because the Lord is making a special, one in a lifetime, custom made miracle just for you.

Whatever you have been asking the Lord for and it seems not forthcoming is going to show up if you keep believing and living the word!

Do not allow mockery of the wicked to discourage you.  I remember when I got married, a sister in law was unto me, pestering me, like you should do this and that. This was three months into living together. The intrusion made me to start worrying, until I was told she waited for eight years before she had her first child.

Why pester me then I thought? It’s a ploy by Satan to unsettle you with fear, doubt and the likes, thereby delaying the manifestation of the Lord’s promises! Reject the invite to worryland! Stay on faith lane!

Waiting period is a test of your faith, and loyalty to God. Zechariah continued serving the Lord regardless of his status. And in due time, the Lord gave him a miracle like no other, John the baptist.

Pray without ceasing – 1 Thessalonians 5:17, be expectant, and be prepared to take hold of your miracle.

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Walking In Your Purpose!!

He said to me, only in your eyes! What? Only in your eyes do you see yourself small, powerless, and with no effect. Why do you think there’s so much hindrances on your path? Why the resistance?

If only you will see yourself from your adversaries point of view. You are a threat, an uncontainable force! You are doing good baby! In the face of all time restrictions you are delivering my message quite well!

You are working in your calling as a voice, you are crying in the wilderness, preparing the way for my anointed ones, those that will worship in truth and spirit, submerged in my essence, washed and filled up by my spirit!

You can do better though with more love, patience, understanding, compassion, courage, humility, and trust in me! I will accomplish much more in you, with you, and through you than you can ever imagine.

I am the Lord and I change not! Trust and obey my every word. You must forgive and let go of all the junks you are holding on to. It is slowing you down. Refocus your gaze!

See, my love, provision is waiting for you at the appointed place. You need to get there! Whenever you are ready, I will lead you there! Make haste though for time wait for no one!

Loving you, eternity unending!

Your Spiritman!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
