I love the scriptures!!!
See Isaiah 10. The wicked may be used by the Lord to do his will even in their wickedness but they will be punished as well as they serve other gods than the true and living God. As a nation or as an individual it may be so.
God is to be our God and we are to have no other gods before him. An idol is something that we worship that has no power or authority. it may be a person, place, thing, attitude such as popularity, title, circumstance such as heritage or even family or association. God must be recognized as our source of power and strength not man or circumstances of man or anything made by man or even by God. God must be God or we will be on the wrong side of the battle and we will fall, even as Assyria was allowed to take their anger and strength to harm Jerusalem and yet God will see that they fall as well.
So the question, is who or what do we put before God? Because of the seriousness of this question and the consequences if there be anything before him would it not be wise to search our lives and our hearts and see if anything or anyone stands before God there?
May we do so and may we be willing to change that circumstance so that his will might be done and we might be aligned with the creator and source of all power and glory is my prayer.
Till next time, may God bless and keep you as you seek to make him your all that he may bless you. In Jesus name, amen.
