BIBLE MEDITATION: ?I will praise Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name for evermore.? Psalm 86:12
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: What is bringing you joy today? You say, ?The Lord is making me happy.? How do you know it?s not that nice automobile? Or your boyfriend? Or your good looksí Or your bank account? Or your popularity? Here?s how you can know. By the process of elimination. If God took away your health, home, and your job, and you still have joy, then you know it is Jesus. If you lose your joy when you lose any of these things, you are an idolater because that is where you are getting your joy. I don?t mean that you cannot be temporarily upset over the loss, but if the joy goes out of your life, you weren?t getting your joy from the Lord. YouÉll never know that Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.
ACTION POINT: It?s time for your heart check-up. Do you truly love God with ALL your heart? Recommit your life to Him today ? surrendering every bit of who you are and what you have to Him. If necessary, ask His forgiveness for committing idolatry.
