Controlling or Controlled“You’re so controlling!” “You can’t tell me what to do!” “You’ve got a brain, use it.” We live in a world where everyone is right, and by all means, don’t limit my choices. If any of the previous were to happen, we’d be controlled by someone else, manipulated into doing something we don’t want to do or thought less of because we can’t think for ourselves.
Yet, we’re all controlled by something – either ourselves or someone or something else. The real question is, “Who’s controlling you?” Ephesians 5:18 states that we are to be controlled (aka filled) by the Spirit, who gives daily victory by replacing our failed character traits with Jesus.
It’s not a one prayer, one filling, one anointing done deal, either. The context and wording of Ephesians 5:18 is analyzing our daily walks in a needy world where a continually filling or giving up of control is needed. Every thought, every word, every action should be made under the control of the Spirit.
Jesus doesn’t force us to do anything (i.e. controlling), but asks us to love Him through our daily choices to surrender our lives to His control. I urge you, secure child of God, to place your life in His hands.
