An All Consuming Fire

Where do you place your security? Is it in your money, your job, your title?

Where do you find joy? It is through sports, shopping, entertainment, or relationships?

Where do you find your peace? Is it in wine, working out, tv, video games?

If we find our security, joy, and peace in anything other than God, we have an idol. Something has been given His position and place in your life.

Should we be good stewards of money, our jobs, our titles? Yes.
Can we enjoy sports, shopping, entertainment, and relationships? Yes.
Is it okay to drink wine, work out, watch tv, play video games? Yes.

But if we exalt those things above God, trust in them more than God, delight in them more than we delight in God, find more peace in them than we do in God, we have a problem. We have placed our faith, our trust, our hope in something other than God. And we shall have no other idols before Him.

“This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.” Hebrews 12:27-29

Ask God to reveal your idols, repent of those, and ask Him to show you the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
