Don’t go on the way of the wicked;
don’t walk on the path of evil people.
Avoid it! Don’t turn onto it;
stay off of it and keep going!
It would be fair to say that I have no idea where my life is heading after I quit working as a Tarot reader. But I know that intend to keep going. Ultimately, I’m moving in the direction of a life that is pleasing to God, away from the practices that I know are detestable to Him.
I used to use all sorts of justifications for why practising divination was not only okay but Biblical. For instance, didn’t Joseph practice divination with his special cup? Maybe he did. But does that mean I should model myself on him or should I strive to obey direct commands rather than go by anecdotal evidence?
There are several passages in both the Old and New Testaments that describe divination as a forbidden practice, along with sorcery, witchcraft and mediumship. And really, it is quite easy from even just a common sense perspective to understand why. These are all manipulative practices that remove our trust in God.
So I will keep going and keep moving toward trusting our loving Father completely.
“The great thing is to be found at one’s post as a child of God, living each day as though it were our last, but planning as though our world might last a hundred years.”
