“Then Ya`akov said to his household and all the others with him, Get rid of the foreign gods that you have with you, purify yourselves, and put on fresh clothes.”
Genesis 35:2 CJB
What a good word for us too, get rid of the foreign gods that mess up our daily walk with Adonai! Understand, we all have them such as: games on our phones, news apps, social media, hobbies and sports! We can and do spend more time with them than with the LORD!
“Wash yourselves clean! Get your evil deeds out of My sight!
Stop doing evil!”
Isaiah 1:16 CJB
Yes, the LORD does cleanse us from sins, but we first have to confess them and stop doing them! Also removing the distractions is something we all have to work at!
“Wash me completely from my guilt, and cleanse me from my sin.”
Psalm 51:4 CJB
When we honestly bring our sins and distractions before the LORD, know that He will remove them and cleanse us from them! Don’t fall into the trap that you can hold onto one little thing just in case you need it later! Just get rid of it whatever it is!
Have a blessed day!
