Those who choose another god… Psalm 16 There was a segment on a morning show where the personalities attempted to give up addictive indulgences. It wasn’t until they made the choice to give them up did they realize how much the indulgence had become a significant part of their everyday living. However, the liberty of giving something up is entirely different than having something forcefully taken away. If we draw all of our energy from people or things, it won’t matter who we say God is. Eventually the people or things will take the lead, rather than the Spirit of God within us.
Often God in His mercy removes forcefully those things which hold our worship. It is painful until we realize how much those things were holding us back from His best.
Yes, and we recognize a different kind of freedom when we learn to re-focus our attention on God’s grace and mercy
Yes we do!
