When you cry out, let your collection of idols deliver you. But the wind will carry all of them up, And a breath will take them away. But he who takes refuge in Me will inherit the land And will possess My holy mountain.” Isaiah 57:13
What or Who is your Idol? I work with a couple of guys who openly admit they spend 12 hours every Sunday watching football. They tell their wives and kids not to bother them and don’t leave their couch all day to stare at an electronic box. During the week they spend countless hours analyzing every player for their fantasy teams. This is Idolatry!
When you put something of more importance than God its idolatry. When you spend more time during your week focused on something instead of God its idolatry!
However as God says when people finally need something, maybe there is a sickness in the family or maybe they are suffering hardship, people start crying out to God to save them! Why don’t you call out on the idols that you spend all your time worshiping!
God wants a relationship with us! He didn’t create us to observe us from afar. He wants to know you and he wants you to know him! Spend time with him, pray to him, worship to him! Let the Holy Spirit intercede for you to bring that relationship with your Heavenly Father
How many of us have that friend or relative who only calls us when they need something? You never hear from this person ever until they are in need, then they are your best friend. Don’t be this person with God! Don’t put things or people in place of God, make him your priority! Develop a relationship with him through Jesus Christ Amen!
