The Irony of Idolatry

 

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. … My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. 7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. – Psalm 62:1-2, 5-7

​​​The irony of idolatry is that it crushes the very thing we are worshiping. Nothing can live up to our worship except God. ​

God rebuked me last night and this morning with that phrase “He only is my rock and my salvation.” There is an exclusivity in that phrase. David is saying that only God is his hope. Nothing else.

We put our trust in things other than God, and that places a pressure on those things that nothing can take except God. He is the only One who can bear the weight of our hope, our trust, our confidence.

I wanted to pass along these verses to you. I hope they nurture your soul like they did mine.

Put your trust in God, not anything else.

Have a great week!
