Idols In Your Life

Idols In Your Life…

The Temple in Jerusalem was the dwelling place of God’s presence. But in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes, an idol was set up in the holy place. From that moment on, the Temple ceased to be the Temple of God. It was no longer a holy place. No longer was it the dwelling place of God’s presence. It became, for all intents and purposes, an empty building.

Only when the Maccabees reclaimed the Temple, removed the idol, and cleansed it, could it be restored to God’s purposes and presence.

2 Corinthians 6:16 says: What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them,

and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

But if you let idols into your life, the glory of God will be withdrawn, and your walk and heart will be left empty. That’s what idols do to the presence and glory of God.

Have you lost the fullness of His glory? Is your heart empty? Search for, and destroy any idols in your heart. For when you remove the idols and open your heart to the Lord, your life and heart will be filled again to overflowing with the glory of the Living God.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139: 23-24

Ask the Lord to show you any idol you may have in your life. Put out that idol and replace it with the flowing of the Spirit.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
