TOPIC: Put Away Other gods
SCRIPTURE: Now, therefore, fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord. Joshua 24:14 (KJV)
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; the compromise you nurture today can puncture your future.
There are things that tend to assume the place of God in people’s lives when done consistently or given undue attention. They can be referred to as other gods or idols.
The scriptures make it clear that you cannot serve God and mammon or other gods or idols (Matthew 6:24). Since no one can serve God and other gods, what do you do to the other gods? You put them away. You kill them.
Killing the other gods implies eliminating things your life that have a tendency of assuming the position of God. Anything that occupies the place of God in your life is a candidate for death.
Never pamper sin in your life because any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny. Any sinful habit you tolerate can terminate you.
Beloved, what is that negative lifestyle or sin that is contending for the place of God in your life?
It could be the sin of the god of alcohol or tobacco or it could be the god of immorality and seduction. It could be the god of bitterness or hatred and malice.
Also, It could be the god of jealousy and envy. It could also be the god of lying and deception and cheating, etcetera.
The truth is, any sin that you trivialize today can truncate your life and destiny tomorrow. The compromise you nurture today can puncture your future. So kill that god before it kills you. Kill that sin before it kills you and stops you. Stop that sin before it stops you and before it stops your destiny.
Beloved, the god of sin shall never assume dominion over your life in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Any sin you pamper can tamper with your destiny; the compromise you nurture today can puncture your future.
- Consciously put away anything or anyone that seems to constitute a god in your life.
- Never negotiate or explain sin away, free from
iniquity in a hurry.
- Give God His place in your life today by making Him the number one priority of your life and existence.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive mercy and freedom from every yoke of iniquity. Dethrone anything that is a god in my life and be enthroned fully in my life, Lord, in Jesus name.
