Shed Off

April 16, 2021

Genesis 31:34-35. Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel’s furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them not. And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he searched but found not the images.

Assuring Grace

As long as idols are in your possession, you will get them out one day. On the day of weak moments, when your guards are laid down, when your flesh is weak, you will desire the onions, melon, and cucumbers you ate in Egypt. You will forget those things were left for a land flowing with milk and honey. You time to sied off will forget the years of servitude in the darkness of sin and the glorious redemption of salvation. The unclean things make for divided loyalty, compromise, instability and keeps one in ‘Arrested babyhood syndrome’ (stunted Christian growth) as my husband, Apostle George Akalonu will call it. If you don’t deal with them, they deal with you. They dealt with Judas, Demas, Orpah, Diana the daughter of Jacob, Lot’s wife, Gehazi to mention but a few.
