Psalm 129:4-5 KJV
The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
As I meditated on the these two verses my mind was cast back to the days of ‘koliko,’ (puppets). As a kid I used to be fascinated by their movements and how they puppeteer could control them with his cords.
The koliko could practically do anything their master wanted. A somersault, a dance, a running or sitting posture…. just anything
A similar picture is painted in the spiritual realms for those who are controlled or being controlled by wicked people and those who hate your progress.
God is shattering their influence and has already cut these cords with which you dance to their music. The only requirement here is to live righteously and they won’t be able to reach you, not now, not ever.
Have a blessed holiday (Eid)
