The leaders of Israel thought that they could get by with whatever; that the prophet would not really know what was in their hearts. But God knows. Today we still believe that we can get by with things that we know are not at all what God wants from us. What is in our hearts?
I need to be diligent about setting my heart only on God and His ways and truth. It is easy for the wrong thinking to creep in, and then I find myself doing things that are not the best.
God I give You my heart. I will be careful not to set up any idols in my heart. I love You anew everyday. AMEN
Father, I will be careful to praise You at all times. I will examine myself and see how good You are. I am happy as I trust You! Psalm 34
What's in Your Heart?
1 Some of the elders of Israel came to me and sat down in front of me. 2 Then the LORD spoke his word to me, saying: 3 “Human, these people want to worship idols. They put up evil things that cause people to sin. Should I allow them to ask me for help? 4 So speak to them and tell them, ‘This is what the Lord GOD says: When any of the people of Israel want to worship idols and put up evil things that cause people to sin and then come to the prophet, I, the LORD, will answer them myself for worshiping idols. 5 Then I will win back my people Israel, who have left me because of all their idols.’ (Ezekiel 14:1-5 NCV)
