Whats in your future?

I can't help but notice lately that many of my friends and some of my family members posting horoscopes or perhaps clicked on something that adds horoscope to their facebook,google+ and twitter by mistake.. I know that schoolfeed is one of them as I had to remove them from mine cause I notice they were posting on my behalf. 
I with many others who have fallen in the trap of its all for fun.. well I have removed myself from it because I dont believe anymore that we should dab in it because the word of God warns us not to associate with such things.. posted below is a couple scriptures I believe to back up what I am trying to say.

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.12 For all that do these things [are] an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so [to do].

Isaiah 47:13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come upon thee.14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: [there shall] not [be] a coal to warm at, [nor] fire to sit before it.

So why turn to these things when we have what we need from God, we have His Promises, the Holy Spirit and most of all if we are Christians(called by Him) we are saved by His Grace alone. So what we should be doing instead of seeking after other things is seeking God and what He requires of us.

Here is a couple scriptures. John 6:68
Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

** So what did Simon say? Did he say horoscopes? perhaps the stars? or perhap some witch/wizard? or even perhaps a new ager? NO HE DID NOT!! He said to the Lord - THOU hast the words of ETERNAL Life.. so why do we need to look at anything else why not read God's word because in His word is Genuine and Truth!

The other scripture is Romans 12:9 - Let love be genuine. Abhor(hate) what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

Now if your not sure what is good and evil.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (kjv) 16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Philippians 4:8 (kjv)Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 So now we have a choice.. I pray our choices will be that of God's will and not the wickedness of evil.
