This morning it's being impressed upon me to share a message similar to one I shared before, IS THERE AN IDOL? God who loves His people laments over them when they choose another, something that takes priority over Him, His will and purpose for our lives. We live at a time when there are competing interests in the hustle and bustles of life, yet by design we are never safe replacing God with any other thing or person, which becomes an idol in the choices we make about money, time, leisure, work...We have seen through prophets Jeremiah and Hosea how God "laments" about His people forsaking Him for "others," “For my people have done two evil things: They have abandoned me— the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all! (Jeremiah 2:13, NLT). Friend, in your life and family, have you chosen HIM OR ANOTHER?
Lord, I repent where in my heart and choices in life I have replaced you with another.
