Created to Worship

Usually when I think of idols I think of strange figures from far away lands. But we have many idols right here at home: youth, riches, power, prestige, career, homes, anything that we put our hope and trust in. We were created with a need to worship God, but, if we don’t know Him we will naturally worship something else to take His place.  The problem is that nothing else can take His place.  None of these idols can rescue us when we are in trouble.

But God can.

“Sacrifice thank offerings to God, 
fulfill your vows to the Most High, 
and call upon me in the day of trouble; 
I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” 
(Psalm 50:14-15, NIV).

God alone is powerful enough and caring enough to be worthy of our hope, trust and love. If we are willing to honor Him as God, ask Him for help, and submit to His leadership, He will take responsibility for delivering us out of, or through, our troubles.

Call upon the Lord today, whether you are in trouble or not, and begin a relationship with the One who loves you most and wants to meet your every need.

To learn more about God, read the Bible (Psalm 34), talk to a friend who knows Jesus, visit a Church that teaches Jesus is God.
