Mankind is engaged in an ongoing struggle. It's a struggle that relentlessly battles to fashion a substitute for the Lord, a worthless idol that can be worshipped and given devotion. And the inescapable irony is that while God made man in His image, man goes about trying to make gods in man's image.
Granted, most people don't see it that way. They don't consciously set out to create an idol they can bow down to and devote all they are and have to. And yet that's exactly what happens. These man-made substitutes range from prestigious positions in a corporate setting to the most shameful addictions. They can span the spectrum of virtually every experience in this life. A hobby, a child, a possession, an agenda, a routine, an ideology...all have been made into an idol of worship at one time or another as people have devoted themselves to them.
Again, those are the "carved images" that we create, and the sad truth is that those who worship them are "put to shame." Oh, it may not seem like it at first-or even after many years. But eventually, there's an inescapable emptiness, a shame-filled realization that "I wasted my devotion on something that can't save me." The only escape is to devote ourselves to the "Him" Psalm 97 speaks of, the King of kings and Lord of lords...Yahweh Elohim, the One who made us in His image and likeness. Only He can save us from ourselves, from our sin, and from the shame that comes from settling for the things we substitute for Him.
Help us God, to steer clear of any substitute that we might serve instead of You.

Alongside of today’s verse, let Psalm 51:10-12 be your prayer.  Psalm 51:10-12 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.” Lord God, we need You desperately!  Transform our lives and take Your rightful place on the throne of our hearts.  Holy Spirit, teach us to love the Lord, and to worship Him everyday with our lives.  May we always seek You through the study of scripture, through prayer and fasting and loving one another!  Thank You for choosing to be our God!

Thank You Father, for Your unwavering love.
Thank You Father, for always having Your arms open for us, that we can come to You anytime, without condemnation.
You are perfect love and Your love never fails. ❤

How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.

The "WORD OF GOD" is "MORE" than enough! WE DON'T need your "GUNS", "MISSILES", "ROCKET LAUNCHERS", "TANKS", "POLICEMEN", "MILITARIES", "GOVERNMENTS" AND "WORLDLY STRATEGIES" to "WAGE WAR" against the "ENEMY" on this earth. We the "CALLED & CHOSEN people of God WILL FIGHT WITH HIS WEAPONS!!! REMEMBER everyone The "LORD JESUS" return is "VERY SOON". Your "REDEEMER" draws "NIGH (NEAR)". "SALVATION" and "DAMNATION" is coming. ITS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU "LAMENT" and "REPENT" before it's too late!!! *PSALM 7:11-13 [AMP] “God is a righteous judge, And a God who is indignant every day. If a man does not repent, God will sharpen His sword; He has strung and bent His [mighty] bow and made it ready. He has also prepared [other] deadly weapons for Himself; He makes His arrows fiery shafts [aimed at the unrepentant].”
*Keep this scripture in mind also *Luke 21:34-36 "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
*Remember to study, apply, and meditate in His Word day and night.
*Choose Christ today because tomorrow is not promised. I love you'll and I will pray for your peace, strength, empowerment, healing, restoration, reconciliation, and salvation. Now go and walk boldly in victory this Saturday in Jesus name.
