Hosea 4:17 Ephraim is joined to idols: Let him alone.It was time to leave Ephraim alone. He had made his decision. He had gone too far. God said to just leave him. There can come a time in your life when you will be so stuck on your sin that God will just leave you to yourself and what will happen. God will walk away and let you deal with the consequences. While there is still time you should turn from your sin to Him. You should realize how foolish you have been in what you been doing. You should decide today that sin is not for you and that you want to serve God. Do not wait till God decides that it is time to just leave you alone. I can’t think of words that are much sadder. He made up his mind: let him alone.
