God alone is holy, awesome, and able to do wonders. Yet, we tend to idolize others. While we might not worship gods like those in the Old Testament, we still idolize those who are unworthy of our attention. For instance, have you ever worshipped a celebrity, a leader, or a friend? The only one deserving of our worship is God! He is holy – without sin and perfect in every way. He is fearful and awesome – he parted the Red Sea and sent the plagues. He works wonders – he created the heavens and the earth and performed countless miracles.
And we pray:
Dear God, forgive me for worshipping other gods and idolizing those who are not You. You alone are worthy of worship. I know that no one on Earth compares to You. When I am falling into idol worship, may I be reminded of Your holiness. Fill me with fear and wonder when I seek Your face. Draw me into Your Word where I can read about Your awe-inspiring nature. Thank You, O Lord, for all Your creation and Your miraculous ways. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
