Numbers 33:55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them[ shall be] pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
The Lord gives us one of those “if, then” statements in this passage. If the children of Israel do not drive out their enemies then they will suffer the consequences.
As you grow in the Lord you will be shown or directed by the Holy Spirit and His Word about things that you should let go of and replace with something new. If you do not then you will often pay the consequences.
Decide now to mortify or put off as you put on what you are in Christ Jesus. Colossians 3.
