Who is your God?
October 9, 2009
And Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him."
--1 Kings 18:21
There comes a time in each of our lives when we have to decide whom we will serve. And that is exactly the choice that Elijah was presenting to Israel in today's verse.
He knew that if revival was going to take place in Israel, it would begin with the people who had surrendered wholeheartedly to God. But the people were divided in their hearts between serving God and Baal. So Elijah, full of the spirit of God, told them they could serve one or the other, but not both!
Today, the same is true for you and me. We must choose. Now, you may say, "We don't have idols today." But we do!
If you love anything more than you love God, you have an idol. If you serve anything more than you serve God, you have an idol. If you worship anything more than you worship God, you have an idol.
So who is your God? Who will you serve with your whole heart? Choose today whom you will serve and let it be settled forever.
WHO IS YOUR GOD? WHO WILL YOU SERVE WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART?
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
