Know assuredly that the Lord your God will not continue to drive out these nations before you: but they shall be a SNARE and a TRAP for you, a scourge on your sides, and THORNS in your eyes, until you perish from the good land that the Lord your God has given, Joshua 23:15
...unless you abandon the bad influences...that have driven you, away from God. They all look good but trust Him, it's all a facade.
Surrounding you...at home, in the office and your church family too! All those who God desires to separate from you. So, go ahead and let the Master downsize your personal and professional crew. He knows each and every heart through and through. Whether they truly love or hate you. Have they given you the loyalty and respect that He feels is due...not the lip service they religiously spew.
For the true motives of men don't always shine through...the packaging can be quit deceiving, Boo. Don't be deceived, by card reads, oh how I love you! It's wise to watch for THORNS...when roses are anonymously delivered, Beloved be warned! The devil came dressed up like an angel of light, when in reality he had horns. Don't risk being gored...commit others to the Lord. He'll deal with the BULL...if you just don't let the wool...be pulled over your eyes...including the spiritually photo shopped kind.
I had enough of the Bull, Mommy Dearest
