2 Kings 17.29
making its own gods
wow, lord, what insight to our self, what window to the destructive behaviour when we are left alone to our own devices. all these other gods, they are not really gods we long to obey or pledge allegiance to or serve - all other gods aside from you are just a creation of our self, a projection of the comfortable kind of living, regimen that doesn’t go against what we want for ourselves, something convenient for us to subscribe to because we don’t get challenged, we don’t get hurt, we don’t get dethroned. you alone are the rightful God, the only one worthy enough to drive our lives, to sit on the throne of our hearts, to give us the real master we’re all deeply longing to serve.
