Think about that carefully, so much power, yet so ephemeral. There is no force there other than the force we grant it. No physical force, no spiritual force, all that leverage over us lies simply in our desire to be approved of. Which means, dear friends, that we, us, me, controls that power, not the other. If I don't care whether you (or anyone else) approve, then you have no power over me.
So why do we care so much? Why are we so willing to grant people such power over us? Particularly when there is only one being that we should care about, and His approval is evident on the cross.
Net time you are struggling against "powers" - remember its your power.
