“The idols of the nations are but silver and gold, the work of man’s hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; they have eyes, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear, nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.” (Psalm 135:15-17)
Many say they are glad they are not like people of old who believed in dumb idols. They drive in their shiny cars, work in glimmering buildings, and listen to a variety of things all the while worshiping the created and not the Creator. Yes, our age is filled with idolatry. Do not be deceived, but come into the presence of the Lord God and worship Him alone. He is the One who made all things.
Lord, help me to see where there is idolatry in my heart. You are the only One to be worshiped; yet I worship my creature comforts. Guide me, O Lord, according to Your lovingkindness to see through the false idols of this age that I would not worship these other gods, but worship You alone. You have granted me grace to come into Your presence that I may learn to worship in spirit and in truth.
Lord, guide me into the salvation You have prepared. Lead me according to Your will that I would walk by faith and in the grace I need. Open my eyes to see You everywhere Lord. Let me listen to what You have written in my heart by the power of Your Spirit. Help me to listen to Your Spirit as You guide me moment by moment. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of salvation. Amen.
