In The Screwtape Letters, C.S.Lewis masterfully shows how a demon can influence someone;
“Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”
Sometimes the evil one whispers in your ear or gently taps you on the shoulder… and sometimes he’s not so subtle. To the point where you can hear him begging to let him take the wheel and drive for awhile. Then…sometimes, there’s cases where you actually give him the keys and willingly let him drive, without deception.
How do you take back control when you realize your not the one in the driver’s seat? It may (or may not) be easy when he comes to you as a whisper, but getting him out of the driver’s seat is a whole lot harder when you’ve willingly given him the keys.
Take a listen to our podcast this week for ways to stay in control or take control back.
Thanks for listening!
