It was over ten years ago that Pam began seeing a palm reader. She had a standing appointment with her reader every month. Then a friend invited her to church.
Pam had never been to church and thought it might be interesting. The message that Sunday touched her heart and she thought about it all week. The following Sunday she returned and for the first time recognized she had done some wrong things in her life and was guilty before God. She prayed and asked God to forgive her sins and then she made a decision to surrender her life to Jesus Christ.
Not only was she forgiven, she was saved for all eternity. She began thinking differently about life situations and experienced a new peace and joy she’d never before known.
A week later she met with her palm reader for her scheduled appointment. This time it was different.
“I’m not getting a reading for you, Pam. Something’s happened. Something’s different and I can’t read you. I’m sorry.”
Later Pam mentioned to her Christian friend that for the first time in over ten years, her reader could not get a reading. “I wonder why.”
Her friend was surprised. “You go to a palm reader? You may not know this, but God forbids His people from seeking counsel or information from mediums. If your reader could not give you a reading, it’s because God’s Holy Spirit now indwells you and is protecting you. It’s a good thing. Besides, we have God’s Word, the Bible, to lead us in the way we should go. His Word tells us all we need to know about the future. God simply wants us to trust Him.”
- Do not practice divination or seek omens. Leviticus 19:26b
- Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:31
- Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
