No Others

You shall have no other gods besides Me.

Exodus 20:3

These words raced through my mind during my time with the Lord recently. I had allowed other gods (idols) to distract me and interrupt the time that was His and His alone. He alone is God and there is no other, yet I wasn’t treating Him as He deserved. He is a jealous God who does not share His glory with others. I had bowed down and served other gods.

After repenting,  I desired our time to continue but I knew it was over for that time. I knew that I was receiving the Lord’s discipline. My only solace was these words “for the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and chastises every son whom He receives.” (Hebrews 12:6)

Do you have other gods besides Him?  Ask Him to show you; He will.

  1. I’m sure, if we are honest, most of would admit to following after idols unfortunately. This world is full of them, which is why I am so thankful for reminders such as yours that cause me to stop and examine my walk and where I’m heading at the moment. Thank you Pam for this.
