Isaiah tells us, "who but a fool would make his own god -- an idol that cannot help him one bit!" we think of idols as statues of wood or stone, but in reality an idol is anything natural that is given sacred value and power. if your answer to any of these questions is anything or anyone other than God, u may need to check out who or what u r worshiping.
who created me?
whom do i ultimately trust?
whom do i look to for ultimate truth?
whom do i look to for security and happiness?
who is in charge of my future?
taken from Life Application Study Bible.
these words can be found in Isaiah 44:10 and i believe that we have to answer the questions above honestly. there is a lot of information out there that can lead us in all different directions. but i have found that checking God's Word, the Bible, i can find the TRUTH. a TRUTH that has been tested throughout time and been proven true and steadfast. anyone can say they r a Christian but what r the fruits or actions that come from those words?
the reason i am sharing this is because my hubby got me thinking about Isaiah 45 and Isaiah 46. i finally stopped playing my game and opened up my Bible and read the chapters. after reading them, i read chapter 44 and reread 45 and 46. even tho this is set in times past, it is relevant today. read those words that were written so long ago and look at the present and see if u can see it to. then ask those questions to yourself first and then see if u can see the foolishness in our current president. if that is what u want for yourself, ok. but what about your children? and your grandchildren? i for one DO NOT want to have to explain to my children and grandchildren y a fool leads our country. nor do i want to explain y, when i had the chance to change it, i did nothing. yes, i see our current president as a fool. i do not believe that he can lead my country in the way i would like it go. in my heart of hearts, our current president is a complete liar and thief. our current president has not shown me that he even cares about anything or anyone but himself. he continuously tears down everything that this nation stands for.
is this what u want? do u really want to be told what u can eat, drink, or do? do u want to wonder what it would be like to be free to live the way u want? do u really want to be told when u can do something? i for one am not ready or willing to give up my freedoms that r God-given and those stated in our Constitution. i have the right to stand up for what i believe in. u also have that right. but how long will we have those rights? it's up to u and me.
today, i made my voice heard and voted. i hope u will do the same. the voice of the people has to be heard. at the same time, we need to continue to pray that God Almighty, will have mercy on America and shed His saving grace on this great nation once again.
"I am the one who creates the light and makes the darkness. I am the one who sends good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things. Open up, O heavens, and pour out your righteousness. Let the earth open wide so salvation and righteousness can sprout up together. I, the Lord, created them."
