“This Is Your God…”

“This Is Your God…”

Blessings folk!

The people knew the great good that the Lord had done for them.
They also knew the great evil that they and their fathers had done against the Lord.

They continued to recount such in their prayer before the Lord…

Neh 9:18-19

“Even when they made for themselves
A calf of molten metal
And said, ‘This is your God
Who brought you up from Egypt,’
And committed great blasphemies,

You, in Your great compassion,
Did not forsake them in the wilderness;
The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day,
To guide them on their way,
Nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go.

They had committed idolatry.
Idolatry of the worse source.
They created a calf of molten metal…the golden calf…and declared that it was their god.
They committed great blasphemies by declaring that the golden calf had delivered them.

Many do the same today, even professing believers commit idolatry - intended and unintended.

Listen closely to what is said.

Many, most?, worship at the throne of man-made entities and structures.

Rare are the people who truly seek the Lord.

Most hide behind the “we have prayed about it” phrase, then do what man says to do.

Man is idolized.

Yet, it is not “too late”.

As in the days of the Exodus, God’s compassion is great.
He will not forsake.
He will provide.
He will guide.
If we seek.
If we ask.
If we believe.
