20 Bible Verses About Removing People From Your Life
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses about removing people from your life. One thing we must learn and accept is the fact that people come and go. While some people are meant to be in your life forever others must be there only for some time. Everything about the creation is in order because our God is in order. He doesn’t just allow things to happen except there is a need for it to happen.
To excel in life there are people you must remove from your life. Everyone is not meant to be in your life. In our pursuit of success, there are two types of people in our lives, destiny helpers and destiny destroyers. The destiny helpers are people who are consciously or unconsciously working towards you becoming great in life. While the destiny destroyers are people doing otherwise.
Sometimes, these people might not know that they have become an instrument in the hands of the enemy to destroy your destiny. You may not even know too. Abraham and Lot were siblings and they loved one another. However, their continued stay was delaying the manifestation of God’s plan in the life of Abraham. At one point, Abraham had to remove Lots from his life so God can establish His covenant with him.

As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
