Moving away from Out of Control to being in Authority

I was discussing to my collegue about some issuethat was really stressing him out in the project.. and He said it really feels difficult.. when you know know exactly what is wrong and how it can be fixed.. but still you cannot correct it because it is not in our control..

Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock,who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

Devil's Authority

In our lives there are many problems for which we know exactly what is the solution and what is the ideal, best and how to make it perfect.. but still things are not under our control..

1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

Fighting the Devil with own (human) Strength

Under these circumstances..people try keep things perfect (under control) with their own strength.. theyrun into oppositons, disagreement,resistance.. they end up in frustrations and defeats.. they grow weary and tired..

John 16:33I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Surrender to the Lord

Best way is to surrender to the Lord..wearypeople come into Christ.. theyunderstand and accept that these are somethings that theycannot control.. but they surrender to God..theysubmit the situation to Him..

Matthew 11:28"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."

Christ will lead us Home (Destiny)

He is the creator and He knows and He has the authority to make everything perfect.. He will lead us into perfection..

Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

Hebrews 10:14For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.

2 Timothy 4:18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Submit to the authority

This is very difficult to most of the people. People choose to live by their own definitions and laws, based on their learnings. But when someonedecides to submit for the sake of Christ, He gives us the guidance on how to progress furtherthrough His spirit.

1 Peter 2:13Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority,

Romans 13:1Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Hebrews 13:17Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.

Seek the Guidance of the Spirit

He will not leave us as orphans.. He has prefect plans to protect us.. seek the help of the Holy Spirit..

Luke 21:15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict..

Luke 12:11-12 "When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."

Fight the Evil with Authority of Christ

We will need to fight the darkness with Authority that is given to us through the Blood of Christ..

Ephesians 6:12-13 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

2 Corinthians 10:4The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

Jesus has already won over the Satan

With Jesus comes not only authority but also victory..Remember this battle we are fighting is already won by Jesus on the Cross. We have to believe in the Blood of Jesus to claim the victory in our lives as well.

1 Corinthians 15:57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
