Hi young ladies, I have been thinking about you all and praying for you all as usual. One question in particular, for you all to meditate on and consider is this: who does your Worship belong to and how do you know?
There are so many vices that are in the world, so many places that can be potentially destructive if you're not careful. Think about this: the definition of worship is reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred. Automatically we think "duh, what's wrong with her??? I worship God Only, what is she talking about????" I'm talking about that thing that has your heart, that thing that you wake up thinking about and go to sleep and even dream about! It's the one person or thing you would die for, and can't see yourself without. Who or what is that for you- and why? Before you answer consider this: how many gods are in your life? Some examples for you: Money, brand name clothing, that relationship that you know you shouldn't be in but just can't let go of it.....let's go a little deeper: Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Beyonce and Jay Z- you get the point I'm sure! So if there is a possibility of having other gods then surely we understand it's possible to worship things and/or people instead of God also right?
So right now somebody's thinking: how do I know if I worship things or people? Simply go back to the beginning of the list:
- who do you spend the most time with? A Christian should spend time praying and reading The Bible.
- who has your allegiance? Again, what or who can't you live without? This could be as small as rap music or as major as a boyfriend that you're obsessed with and can't live without.
- who is in the place in your heart that belongs to God? Nuff said but note- objects of worship never love us back! It's a place that exclusively belongs to God!
- who do you idolize and why?
Did you know that God is a jealous God?
Exodus 34:14 Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. (NIV)
Let's evauate who we are and where we are in relation to our God. If another god has your heart and time simply repent and strive to give our Father what He deserves! Our bodies, energy, praise, worship, gifts and talents belong to Him for His Kingdom's growth and enjoyment so what are you waiting for????
