Making gods of nothing
[God Speaking] “They say to wood, “you are my father,” and to stone, “you gave me birth.” They have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble, they say, “come and save us!””
— Jeremiah 2:27
Have you ever been insulted by someone you love and care for when they turn their back on you? How insulting it must be to the creator when His creations turn their backs to Him in order to live for worthless things. Millions of people ignore God and live for themselves, making gods out of hobbies, entertainment, television, video games, media, magazines, and other pointless things; yet when times get tough, they all of the sudden cry out to God for help. God may reply just as He did to His people when He said “where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble!”
Don’t turn your back to God by making gods of pointless things. Turn your face to God and keep Him at the center of your life.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace and mercy. Forgive me for at times putting other things before you. Help me center my life around you so that in all things I may bring you glory. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
