Oh Lord, I pray that people of all religions will one day understand the need to worship only one God and that is You, oh Lord. Help people realize the idols in their lives now, that they may be convicted of these things and desire to give them up for You. Surely, all idols of stone, pictures, or other things that are being bowed down to or served is idolatry. Doing such things is truly awful in Your sight and I wish that people would stop it today, that say they love You. I know that You have the power to remove every idol of Mary, the Saints, Buddha and anything from a person's heart, that is blocking them from worshipping You alone. As long as people are open to Your will, will they also yearn for Your commands and not want anything to come between them and You. This includes our time watching sporting events, playing video games, watching movies or TV, or spending time outdoors. I pray that none of these things will ever take my time away from You again. In the past it was video games, TV and movies that led me apart from Your love. And in doing this, I was caught up in pornography also. Surely, the idols I put before You almost destroyed my life and my marriage. If You hadn't come to me in my distress and woken me up to my sins, I would still be lost and broken today. Thank You Lord for caring so deeply for my needs and my life ahead of me. I know now that nothing can come before You in this life or the next. You are my God and I am willing to give up anything to have Your presence in my life. You are worth more to me than anything else I can gain in life. I love You dearly, oh Lord. You are my greatest treasure and my reward. Amen.
Genesis 35:2-4 (KJV)
2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:
3 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.
Anything that comes between you and God is an idol. Come and bow down before the Lord God and start giving Him your time today.
God does not take lightly the fact that people have idols in their life. For this reason He Himself has given us a command to not have any other gods before Him. Continue Reading
