Your Life Doesn’t Come With The Remote Control

Do you know the functions of a remote control? Some of you may have a television that comes with a remote control. When you are watching your favorite shows on TV, you can turn the TV off or on, change the channels, and adjust the volume. You have some remote controls that can do much more than that. There are some remote controls that can control up to fifteen different things. The name for that is a universal remote control. Its control devices as a DVD Player, Laptop and other electronic devices. The purpose of that is you can go fast forward, slow motion, reverse, or pause a show while you leave the room to do take care of something. The purpose of the remote control that you are in complete control of those devices you have. In the land of the living that your life does not come with a remote control.

Do you know that some people really believe their life comes with the remote control? I got news for you that life doesn’t work like that. Your life doesn’t come with the remote control. There are some people that don’t like the way how their life turned out to be. Just because your life isn’t going the way you would like, you sure can definitely do something about that. There is no remote control that will fix your life. The only way that your life can be fixed is that you do something about It is up to you to fix your own life. You must be willing to change in order for you to fix your life. Some of us are depending on somebody to fix our lives for us. Nobody can’t fix your life for you, the only person can fix your life is you with the guidance of God. God will send you the tools to help you to fix your life but you are the one that has to put the work in. There is no magic potions to repair your life. You have to get your lazy butt off that couch and fix your own life. I hear people all the time of complaining about their life. I will respond to them if you don’t like how your life turned out then do something about it. You are the one that has control over your own life. You need to make a decision on how you are going to fix it. You need to stop depending on others to fix your life.

You complain about that person who you are involved with in a relationship. You mentioned that they don’t respect you. They aren’t being faithful or being honest with you. Deep down in your heart that you know that person isn’t good for you but you allowed yourself to stay in that toxic relationship. God will remove that person from your life for your protection. He wants to send somebody better for you to be in a relationship with. Instead of allowing God to remove them from your life, you are still chasing after that person. You are not moving forward because you are busy trying to get back with that person who treated you so badly. You make it in your mission that you can’t live without them but they don’t want to be with you. You allow yourself to hold onto grudges and being stuck in your past relationship. You prefer to be miserable in that toxic relationship. The only person that can get you out of that toxic relationship is you with the guidance of God. No remote control will do that for you. You need to make that decision to move on by walking away from that person. You need to remove yourself from that toxic situation. You are complaining that your boyfriend is controlling you. He is telling you what to do. He doesn’t want you to have any friends at all so that he can control you. He wants to keep you away from your own family. He doesn’t want you to go to school to better yourself. He doesn’t want you to work. A toxic person doesn’t want you to see improvement in your life because they can’t have any control over you. Nobody can’t have control over your life unless you allow it. In the book of Luke the 10th Chapter and the 19th Verse say “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” God will remove that person from your life for your protection. God is doing that because he wants to show you that you really deserve much better. God wants the best for you. In the book of Psalm the 28th Chapter and the 7th Verse mention “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” You are complaining why did he cheat on me? You weren’t the only one that’s had been cheating on. Everybody had been cheated on. If you want to be in a better relationship then you need to do something about it. You need to make a change in your life. Before you are willing to act, you must be motivated by the Word of God. As a Christian you will have some of the strongest possible motives for changing. In the book of Romans the 12th Chapter and the 1st and the 2nd verse mention “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” As Christians we are transformed by refreshing our minds. In the book of Ephesians the 4th Chapter and the 23rdverse say “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” You are the one that has control over your life. Just remember that your life doesn’t come with a remote control. A remote control will not fix your life. You are the one that must fix your own life.

“Good discussion of a very important issue. Passivity is not faith! Philippians 2:12 tells us that we must take initiative in working out (not for) our salvation with fear and trembling. The power comes from God, who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. But if we never take any initiative, we’ll never see that power flow.” By Ronald E.
