“In time, when Israel had grown strong, they did put the Kena’ ani (Canaanites) to forced labor but failed to drive them out completely.”
Judges 1:28 CJB
The same goes for us. If we don’t drive out the things in our lives that stumble us, we will always stumble back into sin!
“Eliyahu stepped forward before all the people and said, How long are you going to jump back and forth between two positions? If Adonai is God, follow Him; but if it’s Ba’al, follow him! The people answered not a word.”
1 Kings 18:21 CJB
Often times, this is where we can be faltering between two opinions or not completely removing the things that lead us to stumbling. We hold onto unnecessary things.
“Keep deceitful ways far from me, and favor me with Your Torah (instruction).”
Psalm 119:29 CJB
We all have something that distracts us or gets in the way of serving the LORD! Today, let’s pray and make a effort to get rid of the things that distract us! Have a blessed day in Him!
