Authority and Control

When God made us free, he gave us authority over our own lives, and he will not take that back.

So we can give God permission to speak to us and guide us, and bring events our way, but we cannot give all control over our lives to him. We have to listen to his leading, and choose to obey. And we have to take responsibility for our decisions, and accept the consequences, though he will rescue us from mistakes.

So If we are under attack from demonic powers, he will not deal with them if we remain passive. He expects us to exercise our faith, and take up the authority that he has given us and command them to leave.
