In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls, but those who would preserve their life stay far from them. Proverbs 22:5
Have you ever pricked yourself by a thorn bush while trimming shrubs? It hurts. They get in amongst plants and really can stick. Our orange trees in Arizona even had thorns.
Thorns remind me of how sly temptations and evil can be. You go along in life and test the waters so to speak and may get involved with something you know deep down is not right. If you don’t turn and run you can get ‘pricked’ by the activity you may be doing wrongly. You may be so deep into something you don’t see it as a problem. God is speaking to your heart but you are stubborn and refuse to listen. Your heart has been hardened to the point you can’t recognize God’s voice.
Are there some ‘thorn bushes’ you need to eliminate in your life? A bad habit? A wrong lifestyle? Group of people you associate with leading you astray? Wrong thinking? God is here 24-7 to help lift you from things you may find yourself stuck in. He has your back and wants you to put weed killer on the thorns in your life. Let Him rescue you today!
PRAYER: Jesus you are all I need yet at times I find myself caught up in things that choke you out of my life. I want more of you in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
