“For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before Him, strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.” (Psalm 96:5-6)
Idols are those made-up things that get in the way of the truth that You alone are above all things. Lead me, O Lord, in the goodness of Your presence that I would now and always live according to Your Word and Your way. All splendor and majesty are Yours, O Lord, for everything You created reflects the truth of Your presence, purpose and will. Help me now and always to walk according to Your ways that I would live in the truth.
True God who is above all things, You have made Yourself known to the ages through Your Word and the Word made flesh. Lift me above the cacophony of noise that is in this age that I may see more clearly the truth that You alone are God. Keep me from the idols of this age to worship and praise You alone and above all things. You are God and greatly to be praised.
Lord Jesus, You have taught us to worship the LORD with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. Lead me in the way I should go in this age that I would live in the truth of creation with all of my being. Help me now and always to see in You the truth of reality and the eternal way of things. Guide me, O Lord, by Your grace to live this day and everyday in the truth of Your salvation. Amen.
