God wants to control every single aspect of your life. If that’s not the definition of a control freak, then what is? The following is quoted from an article titled, “How To Deal With A Control Freak,” written by Judith Orloff, a psychiatrist at UCLA
QUIZ: AM I IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A CONTROLLER? (from Emotional Freedom)
Does this person keep claiming to know what’s best for you?
Do you typically have to do things his way?
Is he or she so domineering you feel suffocated?
Do you feel like you’re held prisoner to this person’s rigid sense of order?
Is this relationship no fun because it lacks spontaneity?
If you answer “yes” to 1-2 questions, it’s likely you’re dealing with a controller. Responding “yes” to 3 or more questions suggests that a controller is violating our emotional freedom.
*Note: Dr. Judith Orloff has been featured on CNN, The Today Show, Oprah Magazine and
Every one of these indications of a controller is true about God. If you try to obey the Bible, diligently, you’re going to feel smothered and a lack of fun. James 4:8-9 says if you want to draw nigh unto God, “Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.” It just makes you want to run right out and become a Christian doesn’t it?
Dr. Orloff goes on to state...
People who feel out of control tend to become controllers. Deep down, they’re afraid of falling apart, so they micromanage to bind anxiety.
God is 100% intolerant of what you think, or what you want to do, or what you feel if you’re violating His Commandments and Laws. For example: homosexuality. There is no place for gays in God’s kingdom, you’re not welcome if you’re a homosexual. God will cast you into the Fires of Hell forever if you die in your sins. Is God a controller? God’s in control of the universe, thankfully, whether you like it or not! I’m glad that God is a holy God, a good God, a fair God, a just God, a righteous God, the only true and living God, the God of the King James Bible, and a forgiving God full of grace and mercy!!! There is none like unto God, our Savior and Redeemer!
