Thought For Today - June 9
No Strange Gods!
"Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou will hearken unto me; there shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the Lord thy God which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it." Psalm 81:8-10.
May it be said of us that there be no strange Gods in our lives. Let us always remember it was the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob, and the God of Israel - the father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who saved us. He called us unto himself and set us to dwell in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
Strange gods are not necessarily only the ones we more often think about such as stone statutes or wooden idols, false religion, humanism; but strange gods can be little insignificant things that can keep us from meeting with God, and having fellowship with him, such as comforts of the flesh, petty habits which we refuse to abandon, things we put our trust and confidence in other than God.
When we cast aside all other objects of worship and leave off the petty things that rob us of the blessing and fellowship of God ,and wait patiently for the Lord, then the Lord is faithful to subdue our enemies and feed us with the finest of the wheat, and with honey out of the rock. If we will open our mouth wide, even as the young bird in the nest, then the Lord promises to fill us with his blessings.
