DAY 23 -Flee from every appearance of evil

Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22

The evil you tolerate is the evil that destroys you. In the first book of Samuel, we see that God told King Saul to destroy all his enemies, the Amalekites, their cattle, and even the children (1 Sam. 15). Why did God do that? Because if any of them remained alive, their perverted seed would grow and would destroy them. The teaching here is that the wicked enemy you tolerate will contaminate your heart, and you will begin to compromise your principles. Shortly thereafter, you will stop calling sin by its name, and will sustain it instead.

Adam and Eve tolerated the serpent, and allowed it to influence them spiritually. This is unnatural, because no one with sound judgment would allow a serpent to invade their home.

However, many of us tolerate sins and transgressions in our lives, even while fully aware that these things displease God. We do not realize that when we tolerate them, we are doing the same thing Adam did; giving the enemy direct access to our house and the ability to destroy our communion with God..

On this day, if there is wickedness or perversion that you are entertaining in your mind, it is time to repent and seek the Lord, you can be free now.

Pray with me
Heavenly Father, I humble myself before You today, repenting for my sins and asking forgiveness. I forgive those who need my forgiveness, and I forgive myself. I break all ties with hatred, resentment and unforgiveness, and I ask You to deliver me. Bring my soul from captivity and take me to live in the freedom of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank You Father, for I know that You already did it. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 4:12
That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

Exodus 23:7
Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Isaiah 33:15
He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
