Dear Heavenly Father, please help show the things that I have in my life that are interfering with the fullest relationship I can possibly have with you Lord. Take away the items that are in me that restrict the bond that I yearn to have with you. Make evident everything that is in the way lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
I was having a discussion with a good friend the other day about what we make important in our lives. It reminded me of something; it always stuck out in my head ever since I was a child when it happened. This “Loony old Fart” would always talk about the Gods that people serve and all of the Gods that human beings have. This guy upset me “How dare he blasphemy Gods name”, as I have gotten older and understand things a little more. God has enlightened my view point; I understand what that “Loony old Fart” was talking about. The definition of IDOLATRY:
1: the worship of a physical object as a god
2: immoderate attachment or devotion to something
In this definition the second meaning is what he has illuminated on. An attachment or devotion to something kind of makes you think. I have a few of these attachments; fishing, hunting and cars to name a few. I could make a much larger list but basically anything that you cannot bring yourself to live without. God has the best definition: Colossians 3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Which leads into another avenue that most people do not think about, like the other, I have a problem with this one every once in a while. Definition: ARROGANCE: an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions. This is Gods Definition: 1 Samuel 15: 23 Arrogance like the evil of idolatry. In these two verses we have a lot to think about! Or at least I do, that “Crazy old Fart” was not crazy after all he was just using the shock and awe method. It stuck with me and made so that it was something that I contemplated for years before God showed me what was meant by what he had said. So Which God do You Serve?
