Did you ask your self the question I left with you last time? What was your answer??? It could of been a sports activity. Or a hobby. Maybe even a friend or a family member. Maybe being popular is your god or idol. Or looking perfectly beautiful is what you spend all your time thinking about and trying to make happen. It can really be just about anything at all, and when it becomes an idol in your life- you can tell because nothing else matters except the think that is getting your whole focus. It can be a good thing or a not-so-good thing, but whatever it is, you know it’s an idol when God gets shoved out of your life. God doesn’t want our whole focus to be on other people and things. He wants our love and attention. The Lord God wants first place in our lives, and one of the reason is because as our maker he knows what best for us. He loves us with an everlasting love, and he doesn’t like to see us loving thing more than we love him because when that happens, our lives turn upside down. We become more and more focused on things other than God , and they end of controlling are lives and breaking our hearts.
So I have a question: Do you have what it takes to pray and ask God for help with the problem or idols in your life? Will you allow God to some in and be first place in your life? The truth is, nothing wold thrill him more!
Hope you enjoyed this teaching… Do You Have What It Takes???
