Jesus says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 7:21). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+7%3A21&version=KJV
Likewise, not everyone sitting, eating, and chatting with you is your friend.
People in your life are working overtime to bring you down. These people have negative energy rocking your boat; if you do not seek and find them and throw them overboard, your ship will sink.
Sometimes it does not take a lot to bring a person down. Often, all the enemy needs to do is plant one bad seed in your life, and before you know it, your whole world is topsy-turvy.
So, now is the time to offload the source of negative energy-you may be surprised that the culprits are those closest to you. But don’t let that deter you, do what is right for you. It’s either them or destruction.
According to Jonah 1:1-17, https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jonah+1%3A1-17&version=KJV. When Jonah decided he would disobey and refused to go to Ninevah, he boarded a boat heading in the opposite direction, Tarshish. The Bible says the Lord sent a great wind on the sea, and a violent storm arose and threatened to break up the ship. The sailors were afraid, and each cried out to his god. And they threw the cargo into the sea to lighten the ship. But that didn’t help. Because the culprit was Jonah, and he was below the deck sleeping. Eventually, the sailors cast Jonah overboard, and the sea calmed.
So, my friends, if you have found the source of the negative energy destroying your life, do not hesitate to get rid of the excess baggage.
