CUTTING THE STINGS OF CONTROL
Cutting the Strings of Control
“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.”
Are your thoughts, emotions, and actions frequently controlled by a domineering spouse, boss, or friend? Do you ever feel like a puppet—as if someone is pulling your “strings” like a cleverly maneuvered marionette? No one should exercise control over your life like that. In these Keys for Living, discover why some people are prone to manipulation, and how to cut the strings that control you and be set free. If you are a manipulator, you’ll learn how to let go of control and lean on God who alone is sufficient to meet all your needs.
Do you see yourself as being “power-hungry”? Power plays an intimate role in each of our lives. We all have a need to control our circumstances. In childhood, we throw tantrums to get our way. By adulthood, we’ve mastered the art of manipulation. In fact, you could be a manipulator, or the one being manipulated, and not even realize it!
Have you heard the saying, “normal is just a setting on your dryer”? Well it’s a catchy phrase, it’s cute, and in many ways, it’s true. Actually we all have our own understanding of “normal.” You may have a friend or a coworker whose normal includes being the victim of consistent manipulation. Realize God may call you to help someone come face to face with the patterns of manipulation. When you’re given that opportunity, help your friend understand and recognize that God alone is our true need-meeter. He’s the only one who can meet our deepest inner needs for love, significance and security. Be ready to share God’s hope and help. It can make all the difference in the world!

For the One Manipulated:
“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God?
Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
For the Manipulator:
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a
godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate
in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
2 Peter 1:3–4
2 Timothy 1:7
