Sorcery sounds like something from the movies, but it is widely practiced in modern times. It is called by other names like witchcraft and magic. However, it is all the same thing – manipulating the supernatural realm to accomplish one’s own means. It does not matter if you are doing it to gain things selfishly or if you are trying to do something nice for another human being. The same result is accomplished. You have exerted your will over God’s will.
If we consult God’s will by prayer and receive what is granted, we know that true good has been accomplished. Trying to do good outside of God’s will results in disaster because we are not all-knowing. Throw away the crystals and whatever other things you use in ritual and take up prayer and God’s Word (see Deuteronomy 18:9-15) to do good the right way. Ready? Let’s pray about it.
Lord, I confess I have been trying to accomplish my own will by supernatural means. Forgive me and help me to live a new life by faith in Jesus Christ. Help me to depend on You for all I need. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
