So which God do we choose to worship? Is it the one who obeys our every command? Or the one who reads our mind and answers our every wish? Is it the god we expect to fill our life with riches, or take away all our suffering?
Oops. We are following the wrong God. Unfortunately, we put God where we want Him. However, He does not and will not ever change. The God of the Bible is in control. He never lets us down, even when what we want is not what we get!
Just because you refuse to live on God’s terms, do you think he should start living on yours? You choose. I can’t do it for you. Tell me what you decide. (Job 34:33, MSG)
“If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship GOD, then choose a god you’d rather serve—and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. (Joshua 24:15a, MSG)
Prayer: Lord, may we mean it when we say…….As for me and my family, we’ll worship GOD.” Amen. (from Joshua 24:15b)
