Idol Worship, Me?

by Hazel Straub

Idol worship is anything you spend more time on other than on God. The primary focus of your thoughts that put God in secondary or last place.  An idol is not only an image but that on which we spend our time, energy and what we think upon.  Consumed with fighting your own battles? When you obsess about yourself–your problems, weaknesses, worry, anxiety, how others look at you, what you believe, obtaining status symbols, or plain “I,” these idols take the place of pure honor and worship of God. Focusing inward and not on God dependence.  Spending more time on sports or other passions but neglecting cultivating your relationship with God? Step out of your comfort zone and seek God with your whole heart and leave all idols behind you.

Lord, Deliver me from blindness, and from myself, as I look to you, my Deliverer. I leave my idols behind and follow you alone. Today, I want to crave only you, God and all you have for me. Give me kingdom of God vision and your perspective. Today, I give you my full worship and obedience. Your praise bursts from my heart and out of my mouth, for your mercy. Praise your name!
