It has always been our great dilemma. From the beginning of time right up to this hour we have wrestled between which gods we will serve. We have been tempted since the Garden to find any alternative other than the Lord God Himself. And we have bitten hard and fast at the Enemies bait. He is unconcerned about which god we follow, just as long as we do not follow the Lord God Jehovah.
Is there anything you are unwilling to relinquish to God? To release? A job? A relationship? Possessions? Comfort? Popularity? A favorite habit or sin? Remember, God is not out to take from you, but to bring to its proper purpose all that you have. It would be good to pause right now and look down at your hands. Ask God to show you what you are gripping more tightly than you should.
