Romans 16:17

Romans 16:17 - I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.

In your life you will find that there are some who desire you to fall. They see the life you are living and want to trip you up. Sometimes they will be doing it on purpose, while other times it may just be because the life that they are living is contrary to yours.
We must watch out for these people. It is easy to guard against this from those who do not like you, it is when it is from someone close to you that it becomes harder to catch. That is why it is so important to always seek God for the truth in every situation.
We must understand that God wants us to succeed and be unified with our brothers and sisters in Christ. When we are unified together in Christ we become a powerful entity that will make a difference for the kingdom of God.
Obviously our enemy, the devil, does not like this. He will do whatever he can to split you apart and divide you. Be on your guard against such attacks. If there is someone in your life that is constantly trying to trip you up, stay away from them. They are not looking to help you out, but instead wish to make you fall. It is the enemies goal to split you off from the body of Christ.
Just like a lion attacks the weak and vulnerable animal that is split off from the herd, so too the devil wants you alone and vulnerable. When you are unified with other believers you will not only do more for God, but you will also be stronger. You will be able to watch and protect others while they do the same for you. So be on your guard and keep away from those who seek to divide you.
