17I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. 19Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.
In Romans 16:17,18,19 Paul illustrates to beware of those who's intentions are is to Divide and block those who try's to follow the teachings of Jesus. flattery and deception is the poison and any one who is charmed is the unlikely victim.
I will not be made victim to things that does not align with our Father purpose, for HE will reveal those who try and try with every deception to ensnare anyone who is charmed by there antics and amused by there illusion. The LORD reveals And the lord punishes, but for HIS children we must stay close " LISTEN " and we will be rewarded with salvation and freedom.
Father thank you for all that you say and all that you are doing in my life, Father teach me how to be humble so when ask of the goodness that you have done for me it will not be shown with conceitedness but in love and compassion. Lord give me the wisdom to discern the things that is not of you, in all this i pray Amen.
