This week God has really been speaking to me about guarding my heart. Have you ever thought about how good things in your life become too good? Sometimes too good is bad. These are called idols.
Idol- anything in the visible, created realm that begins to operate in a role that should be reserved for God.
You know what I'm talking about. When shopping is no longer just a fun thing every now and again. When your significant other becomes the only comfort. When food is no longer nourishing but unhealthy and stuffing after we are full. See all of these things are "good"! Food, relationships, and entertainment. But when we can not think about anything else and red flags start flying up, we know God is trying to tell us we are replacing Him. God is so forgiving. Even in the midst of us, either knowingly or not, turning our backs on Him he brings us back and loves us unconditionally! Ladies we need to start calling idols what they really are, IDOLS!! But don't fret! Just guard your heart and trust Yahweh, our Father. His love is so deep and strong and He wants us to focus our attention on Him!
Matthew 6: 33 "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
