Habakkuk 2:18 “What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it, the molded image, a teacher of lies, that the maker of its mould should trust in it, to make mute idol?”
I am always baffled when I come across people who are into idol worship. This is because God is the ultimate Creator and all others are created. The big question is how can a man created in the image and in the likeness of God worship a graven image. Why should a man carve an image from a wood or stone created by God and bow before that image in worship? Why should any clear thinking personality worship an image which has eyes but cannot see, ears but cannot hear, mouth but cannot speak and legs but cannot walk? Why should anyone worship a god which has to be carried by man and reject the One who will carry him under His wings? What you ought to know is that idol worship is foolishness and no child of God should entertain it. There is no power in these lesser gods; they are teachers of lies and agents of Satan. When it comes to idol worship, it does not only end with the graven images people consult or worship. Anything which takes much prominence in your life than God is your idol. You should never allow anything to take the place of God by way of importance in your life. After creation, God told man to dominate the earth. This means that man is more powerful than any gods created from wood, stones etc. That is why it is very wrong for any man to indulge in idol worship. Your total trust must be in God and not in any other power or image. Let God have the utmost importance in your life and nothing else.
Confession for Today
I decree and declare never to indulge in any form of idol worship, for it is foolishness in the sight of God in the mighty name of Jesus.
