Worthless Idols

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!

    Excellent words. I have to be careful that blogging does not consume time that would have been God’s. When something is new it can become that way. We have to remain focused on Him. I keep Peter in mind as he stepped out onto the water and took his eyes off of Jesus. It is so easy to let the world take control and that is satan’s focus of distraction.

    Look at the amount of time people (Christians) spend on Twitter…they think because they are tweeting Jesus it’s the same as spending time with Him,NOT!!! I am someone who will make a post then leave,logging off the computer,I may pop back on a few times throughout my day if I’m home BUT I spend more time away from Twitter then I do on it! For some I feel Twitter has become their god…just an observation.
    I know what it’s like to go days/weeks/months and even years without hearing from a family member and it’s like you said,they only call when they need something like PRAYER. My spirit grieves when that happens,to only hear from people when they want something. I’m sure Jesus feels the same way about me.Before coming to Christ I would treat Him like a turn-style when I wanted or needed Him I’d call out to Him and He in His faithfulness to me was always there! What a patient,loving and full of mercy and grace God I serve!

    Sweet Shalom brother 🙂

    “…But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts.”
    Most sacrifice what is left over. It is the pattern ministry, and therefore the church, has followed for millennia. We always give the Lord the time which is left over. What would happen if you put everything in your life on trial, and then executed everything God never told you to do? What would you have left? I too am guilty of this, but you cannot become what you cannot see. So why don’t we all see together and make this easy? LOL
    Good post!
