MFM Daily Devotional 12 September 2022 MESSAGE
A decision to come back to God will require a change from inside, which includes your thought, motives and desires. These are things that can turn you away from God, if you are not totally yielded to Him. Coming back to God will start with being honest about all that is going on in your head and heart. In our Fire Scripture today, we read about the Israelites turning away from God Almighty and getting involved in idol worship.
As a result, God forsook them. Samuel roused them to action by saying that if they were truly sorry, they should do something about it. Many times, we complain about our problems, even to God, but we refuse to change and do what God requires from us. Samuel told the people that they should return to the Lord and serve Him only. They were to get rid of their foreign gods (1 Sam. 7:3).
Beloved, today, idolatry is beyond serving the gods of wood and stone. Whatever holds first place in your life becomes your god. It can be money, position, success, material goods, husband, wife, children, etc. Anything that takes the place of God in your heart is an idol. There is no difference between your commitment to these material things or human beings and your commitment to idols of wood and stone. The Lord alone is worthy of our worship.
You must put away whatever represents strange gods in your life and come back to the Almighty God. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” This means you must totally separate yourself from the sinful nature of the world.
This is the only way that God will accept you as His son or daughter.
