1 And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Message – Open Heavens 22 February 2018 Thursday Daily Devotional

The God whom I serve is not only the beginning. He is also the ending (Revelations 1:8) this is why He can give a lost soul a new beginning and also bring those without hope to an expected end (Exodus 12:2, 2nd Corinthians 5:17,Jeremiah 29:11). This simply means that the Almighty God that I serve is the All in All who fills everywhere (Psalm 139:7-13, Ephesians 4:9-10). The supremacy and pre-eminence of the Almighty God of heaven and earth was not bestowed on Him by any man or creature; they are inherent in Him (1st Timothy 6:16). His supremacy and pre-eminence must be acknowledged by all His creation (Psalms 103:19-22).

In today’s Bible text, God demands exclusive worship from those He calls His own. He clearly spelt out this demand because He knows that there is a tendency for mankind to worship the contraptions of his heart. Who is the God that you serve; the self-existing God or a contraption borne out of the imagination of men’s hearts? A lot of people today have idolised other men’s heart? A lot of people today have idolised other men to the point of worship. They fellow what such people say and believe what they spew out of their mouths, even when such things are contrary to what the Creator has said in His word. Some people worship whatever the imagination of their heart brings to them by believing that they are what their thoughts say they are, contrary to what God created them to be. To such people, their imagination is their god and they bend in whatever direction it leads them. This is why some people subject themselves to gender reassignment surgery, based on what their imagination dictates. As a human being, whether you like it or not, there will always be something you worship, even though you don’t realise it. it is a dangerous thing to make anything aside from God of heaven the object of your worship, because this elicits a curse from heaven.


Jeremiah 17:5 says,

“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trustth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”

Moreover, the Lord commanded that we should not bow to anything or anyone but Himself. This was the position Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego took when they were faced with option of bowing or burning (Daniel 3). They chose to burn rather than bow to the image of King Nebuchadnezzar. Today, for fear of death, many are bowing to the image of witchcraft, sorcery and various occult groups. Jesus came to deliver such people, if they will accept Him (Hebrews 2:14-15). Don’t let anyone deceive you, there is no other god beside the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and Jesus is the only way to Him (1st Timothy 2:5). Accept Jesus today and put your absolute trust in Him alone.

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,

In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,

Ancient of Days

Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou

rulest in might;

Thy justice like mountains high

soaring above

Thy clouds which are fountains of

Goodness and love.

 

To all life Thou givest, to both

great and small;

In all life Thou livest, the true life

of all;

We bloosom and flourish as leaves

on the tree,

And wither and perish, but nought

Changeth Thee.

 

Great Father of Glory, pure

Father of Light.

Thine angels adore Thee, all

Veiling their sight

All laud we would render, O

help us to see:

‘Tis only the splendor of light

hideth Thee

 

Immortal, invisible, God only

wise,

In light inaccessible hid from

our eyes,

Most blessed, most glorious, the

Ancient of Days

Almighty, victorious, Thy great

name we praise.
