Trapped by Control

How to Find Freedom

David Cross

ISBN: 9781852405014 [112 pages]

Control can be godly or ungodly, depending on whose authority is in place. It’s harmful to us when it undermines our freedom to choose what is right. For many of us, the Lordship of Jesus is continually being challenged by ungodly controls that come from people, past and present situations, and even from within ourselves - fear being one of the key issues.

The enemy is seductive and deceptive. His primary aim is to gain control through our sinful beliefs and behaviors. When control is not in the hands of God it’s in the hands of the kingdom of darkness.
Wrongful control spoils relationships and seriously damages lives. This book takes a closer look at how and why people control. Controlling behavior is always a symptom of a deeper issue; it’s a sinful response to inner wounding and insecurity. As God reveals the roots of control we can choose to forgive those who have hurt us and receive His comfort, His acceptance and His healing at a deep level. This book is therefore ideal for those who want to understand ungodly control in their own lives or in others and find the keys to walking in freedom.

This book is part of Sovereign Word’s ‘Truth & Freedom’ series based on the renowned teaching program from Ellel Ministries International.

About The Author

About The Author

David Cross is the regional director for Ellel Ministries in Western Europe. He is based at Ellel Glyndley Manor near Eastbourne, UK. He qualified as a civil engineer but developed many life skills in a most varied working career, which included leading ski tours in the Scottish Highlands. Despite fulfillment at work, David found himself gradually more and more disillusioned with the ethos of "self-sufficiency" on which he had based his life up until that point. A change in direction came when he was converted in Hong Kong in the early 1980s and he eagerly began to follow Jesus. On returning to the UK in 1984 he became an elder in the Church of Scotland. Then in 1993, he and his wife Denise joined Ellel Ministries. David's clear and authoritative teaching from God's Word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ideologies of today's world. David has written three other books in the Truth & Freedom series published by Sovereign World: Soul Ties: The Unseen Bond in Relationships, God's Covering: A Place of Healing and Trapped by Control: How to Find Freedom.

worth readingReview by Dangermouse
I would recommend this book, it's an easy read, straightforwardly written. Worth reading & helpful to anyone who has control issues because of being hurt & everyone else too as there can't be anyone who hasn't had to deal with control in some shape or form. (Posted on 17/08/2017)
Easy to readReview by Auntie Ria
I read this book within a day. Easy to read, interesting and informative bringing clarity into a very difficult situation. Towards the end It has step by step instructions in how to get free, encouraging you to pray with others who will support you. You read this sort of book to give you knowledge and understanding but you have to be ready to acknowledge that where you may have been controlled, you also have controlled which isn't pleasant to have to face up to but it's about taking responsibility for your own life to be able to move forward. I will dip in and out of it as is necessary and I would highly recommend it for anyone in a similar situation or who wants to help someone in a situation like this. (Posted on 17/08/2017)
