We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend. Whether it was spending time with friends and family, Black Friday shopping, or taking a break from school routine; we are glad to have you back for E2. In today’s TWA, there is a common theme about idols.
In fact, Psalm 135:15-18 puts it plainly:
“The statues of the nations’ gods are made out of silver and gold.
They are made by human hands.
16 They have mouths but can’t speak.
They have eyes but can’t see.
17 They have ears but can’t hear.
They have mouths but can’t breathe.
18 Those who make statues of gods will be like them.
So will all those who trust in them.”
The Psalm here put it simple, things made by man means nothing. In a culture where it is easy to look inwards, we need to come before God with the understanding that the time spent with Him last forever. Yes, you may enjoy playing games, buying things, or even spending time on yourself; but that would be fruitless without God. 1 John 5 states that everyone who believes in Jesus is a child of God. My brothers and sisters, let’s come before Him and ask Him what in our lives is an idol and preventing us from drawing close to Him. God knows your heart and He will fight for you.
Be blessed with this promise:
“That’s because everyone who is a child of God has won the battle over the world. Our faith has won the battle for us. Who is it that has won the battle over the world? Only the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:4-5
