Are you entangled by unrighteous ties? Are you being held back by invisible cords? It is possible that we are kept from fulfilling our purpose due to ties that hold us back.

Then, on the other hand, we may be that stumbling block to others. That is not something we like to hear, but we may be doing things without being aware of it. The reason for this post is to help us identify things we should avoid, either in ourselves or others in order to live more righteously. Living righteously should be our focus. Use this to evaluate yourself and ask YHVH to reveal the areas you need to work on to you. What do you do when you come to one of these situations? Sometimes the only way would be to flee from itâ€¦
