(Psalms 29:11) The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
My question to you is, “Does someone else have your remote? By this, I’m asking, are you allowing someone else to control you? Do their reactions determine what type of day you are going to have? Are you constantly worried about whether they are going to be checking your phone messages? Do you have to make sure you are home at the same time every day or else you are accused of cheating? If you have any of those problems I just mentioned, then you have given your remote to someone else. You are allowing someone to control you.
In my early 30's, I gave my remote to someone. I had no control over anything in my life because of this person. I went through mental, physical and emotional abuse. He knew which buttons to press to make my life a living hell. Whatever he said, I did, just to keep peace in my house.
One day I heard the Spirit of the Lord say to me, "Who are you?" I had no idea. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be so lost and allowing someone else to control me and my actions. I was a strong woman before this person came into my life. I started praying, something I hadn't done in ten years. I took my remote back (my life). The remote symbolizes your life. I hope this message can save you ten years.
Here’s what I want you to do, refuse to let that person, place or thing control you. Enjoy who you are and whatever decisions that you make with your life let them be yours. Hold on to your own remote, it's your life, make up in your mind that you will no longer allow someone else to change your channel from peace to sorrow, joy to bitterness and hatred. You should be able to control your own life. Just because you put your remote down for a moment, doesn’t give any man, woman or child, the right to pick it up and begin changing your station. LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I give You all the praise and honor on today. Lord, I pray that You give me the strength to take back whatever the enemy has stolen from me. I pray also for wisdom and knowledge concerning any situation that may be controlling me. Lord, I want to walk under Your guidance and authority. Lord, I thank you for giving me strength to control my own life, and that I will have no fear to take back my remote. I thank You Lord, for keeping me safe through this journey of my life, in Jesus name, Amen.
