2 Corinthians 7:10 states, “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the SORROW of the world worketh death”
Remember Lot’s wife. The LORD sent his angels and warned her not to look back, but because her heart was not in what she was doing. She turned back and she became a pillar of salt, (Genesis 19:26).
When God warns you to come out from among certain folks and to be Ye separate, you had better be listening to HIS VOICE!
Many times we get so caught up in trying to please SELF, that we find ourselves mingling with those whom God has SPECIFICALLY told us to depart from!
There are even some gifts the LORD will not allow you to keep not because it is anything wrong with having them but because of the motives and the intents of the person’s heart giving them!
The LORD even told Ezra the priest, “Give not your sons or your daughters or take their sons or daughters from those that were wicked that they be not unequally yoked or defiled by the unclean thing,” because He knew the trouble and the heartache this would bring in doing so!
Just as he did when the Children of Israel asked him for a king and he ended up giving them Saul! He knew it would also cause the people’s hearts to be turned away from him!
God is a jealous God and he will have NO OTHER BEFORE HIM! And, He also did this because many times we pray and ask him for things after He has specifically warned us not to and as a result we can not stand before God or our enemies all because of disobedience!
In this season, God is going to cause many to give up somethings that will cause you to walk in his divine will! Remember, God will NEVER ask you to give up things without a good reason!
Whatever He asks you to release, He will give you double for your troubles just as He did Job!
Where your treasure is there shall your heart also be. Remember obedience is better than a sacrifice!
“For we have forsaken Your commandments, Which You commanded by Your servants the prophets, saying, ‘The land which you are entering to possess is an unclean land, with the uncleanness of the peoples of the lands, with their abominations which have filled it from one end to another with their impurity. Now therefore, do not give your daughters as wives for their sons, nor take their daughters to your sons; and never seek their peace or prosperity, that you may be strong and eat the good of the land, and leave it as an inheritance to your children forever.’ And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor? O LORD God of Israel, You are righteous, for we are left as a remnant, as it is this day. Here we are before You, in our guilt, though no one can stand before You because of this!” Ezra 9:10a-15 (NKJV)
