Exodus 20:3 – You shall have no other gods before me.
How is it not possible to love a God who loves us no matter what we have done? Easy, just ask anyone who walks the face of our planet to give up one of their beloved earthly possessions and see what the response is. Too many times we look at “STUFF” more than to God for our pleasure. And those of us that have been through any kind of addiction really put those things first – drugs, money, alcohol, pornography, and the list goes on.
The Bible may have spoken of the gods that Egypt worshiped in the days of Moses, but it is no different than the things we put before God in this day and age. Anything that we put before the almighty God is not worth having at all. He knew you before you were born and He knows everything in your heart and what your our entire lives will be like.
Giving all of yourself should not feel like a sacrifice, it should feel like a truly pleasurable experience. Matthew 4:10 – “For it is written; worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.” Let’s praise the one true king!!

Daily Quote: “If we exalt money, status, or sex above the Word of God, we are living in idolatry. Every time we inwardly submit to the strongholds of fear, bitterness, and pride, we are bowing to the rulers of darkness. Each of these idols must be smashed, splintered, and obliterated from the landscape of our hearts.” – Francis Frangipane
