Deuteronomy 5:7 – 7 ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.
I occassionally meet with people that have walked or fallen away from God. Normally they will see it more as God walking away from them, but rarely will they admit that it was they that moved. Unfortunately, a series of “little” steps away from God result in one big move in the wrong direction. What happened?
In today’s verse, God tells us “7 ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.”. The first Commandment that God gives us is to make sure that God is first and God is the only god in our lives. That means that nothing or no one can come before Him or take the place of Him. In my experience, when people walk away from God it is because they have placed other gods in front of God. There are many “gods” that I could list here, but the list would be different for each person. In the end, a “god” is whatever we allow to take the place of the one true God. My prayer for each of us today that as we begin our journey today, we will allow God to lead our way and not allow others to come before Him. God is good and God is great. None can repalce Him. None can compare. May all you do glorify and honor the only One worthy of such praise.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
