Hijacking humans as hostages

Compulsive desire
Can distract
And hijack
Our will,
Then compel us
To get off track.

Hijacking is much more common than we realize. Much in society attacks and hijacks free will turning people into drones commanded and controlled by desire and manipulation. Any thought, feeling, or desire that is bullying you into saying or doing anything against your will has taken you hostage.

Addiction hijacks free will and holds it hostage to self-destructive desires. It’s a tragedy when people allow their free will to be hijacked and held hostage by unrestrained cravings.

A person hijacked and overcome by uncontrolled desire is in bondage. We can’t obey controlling cravings of our desires and the promptings of God’s Spirit at the same time.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
