Isaiah 2:8 “Their land has also been filled with idols; they worship the work of their hands, that which their fingers have made.” And a little further on, in verse 11, we read, “The proud look of man will be abased, and the loftiness of man will be humbled, and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.”
They worship the work of their hands. Maybe media, clothes or food are not your idols of choice. But, maybe your image, your talents, your physique, your education, your home, your giving or your ministry are?
Isaiah 45:16-17, 20 “They will be put to shame and even humiliated, all of them; the manufacturers of idols will go away together in humiliation. Israel has been saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; you will not be put to shame or humiliated to all eternity. Gather yourselves and come; draw near together, you fugitives of the nations; they have no knowledge, who carry about their wooden idol, and pray to a god who cannot save.”
idols that distract or deter you from exalting God to His
rightful place in your life? Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to give us eyes
to see our blind spots- our areas of weakness and idolatry, the people
or things that we idolize and place above the LORD.
