What Is Your Idol?

Hey Everyone,

Today I would like to talk to you about idols. What are idols you may ask? Well let me tell you. An idol is anything that we put desire above GOD and His will for our lives. Idols come when we love things or people more than we love GOD. A few weeks ago the LORD showed me something in the Word of GOD that stuck out to me. Lets read that Bible verse.

Isaiah 31:7

I know the glorious day will come when each of you will throw away the gold idols and silver images your sinful hands have made. (NLT)

I have inserts in my Bible and this is what it has to say about this verse.

Idols:
Someday the people of Israel would throw their idols away, recognizing that they were nothing but wood or stone. Today, idols such as money, fame, or success seem harder to throw away. Instead of contributing to our spiritual  development, they rob us of our thoughts, time, energy, and devotion to GOD. At first they seem exciting and promise to take us places, but in the end we will find that we have become their slaves. What idols, if any, do you need to throw away?

After reading that I started looking see if I had any idols in my life. Sure enough I found out that TV/computer/MP3 player ruled 93% of my time. WOW! Now that surprised me alot. So I started cutting back on all that. I started by asking GOD to forgive me for getting those things rule my life. Then I asked Him if would help me and that I would desire Him more than anything else in my life. IT WORKED! He showed me verses in the Bible to help manage my time. I would like to share those with you.

Spend time with GOD- Proverbs 3:5-6

vs5: Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. vs6: Seek His Will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. (NLT)

Romans 8:28

And we know that GOD causes everything to work together for the good of those who love GOD and are called according to His purpose for them. (NLT)

Prayer- 1 Thessalonians 3:10

Night and day we pray earnestly for you, asking GOD to let us see you again to fill the gaps in your FAITH. (NLT)

Jude 1:20

But, you dear friends, must build each other up in your moth holy FAITH, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit. (NLT)

Build FAITH- Romans 10:17

So FAITH comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about CHRIST. (NLT)

Pray in the Spirit- Ephesians 6:18

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (NLT)

He has shown me that time with Him is time will spent!!!! I know that it is easy to get caught up in the things of this world. But let us not forget that GOD has a plan and purpose for us.

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (NLT)

So let us make sure that GOD is number one in our lives!!!! Everyday of our lives!!!!

Do you have any idols in your life?

♥GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU SAFE♥

God's love is amazing!!!!!! #Love #Godslove #bibleverses #bibleverse #Jesus Okay so I'm going to be honest with all of you. The past few weeks to a month as been ruff for me. Changes has happened, things gone wrong, stress, etc. But you know what. It is all behind me. I'm not going to lie, it was hard and it hurt. I hate being in a place of struggle. I hate being in the most of things I can't do anything about. But you know what, that is why I have a loving Daddy. Daddy God!!!! He takes care of me and let's me know He is here for me. Yes I do need to reach out to Him and allow He to take over. Need to let Him know that I'm struggling. Yes He already knows but He wants me to tell Him. It may be hard to reach out. It may be hard to admit that I'm struggling but in the end it will all work out. It is all going to be okay. I just want you all to know that God loves you very much and wants to h very much apart of your life. Let Him know that you are struggling. Watch Him turn it around. Let Go peace over come you and Let Him take care of it. 
YOU ARE WORTH IT

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. - Exodus 14:14 AMPC

Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace (the peace of His kingdom) at all times and in all ways [under all circumstances and conditions, whatever comes]. The Lord [be] with you all. - 2 Thessalonians 3:16 AMPC

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. - Philippians 4:6 AMPC

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. - Isaiah 26:3 AMPC
