SCMC Devotional – Nov 2, 2017

“What we fear, we attempt to control. The root of our desire to control others is the blatant lie that we actually can. You cannot control other people; you have tried and you have failed. The kingdom is full of free people walking in freedom.”

“When you try to control someone, it’s because you are actually afraid they might do something you don’t want them to do, so you manipulate the situation to try to produce a more desirable outcome. This is the handiwork of the Devil because it’s built on a lie. The only person you can control is yourself. You have been given the spirit of self-control, not other-control.”

– Caleb Hyers, Dependenceville
