Who or What is Our God?


People’s opinion of me?
            My childhood?
                                    My children?
                                                Looks/Self Image?
                                                                        Being Right/Hip or In Control?         

            Escaping Responsibility?
                        My Work?
                                    Athletics/Being the Best?
                                                            Politics/Political Correctness?
                                                                        Sameness/Constant Change?
Can you fit what you cling to under the Lordship of Christ? Must Christ wait in line to see if there are any leftovers?

In the end, we can have but one Lord, one North Star, one Boss. One God who will never abandon us or disappear or turn on us or fade away or lose potency. Each second, we choose.

Which altar will we choose this day?                                                                                    

1 The LORD is King;
let the earth rejoice; *
let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him, *
righteousness and justice are the foundations of his throne.
3 A fire goes before him *
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings light up the world; *
the earth sees it and is afraid.
5 The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD, *
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness, *
and all the peoples see his glory.
7 Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in false gods! *
Bow down before him, all you gods.
8 Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice, *
because of your judgments, O LORD.
9 For you are the LORD,
most high over all the earth; *
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 The LORD loves those who hate evil; *
he preserves the lives of his saints
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light has sprung up for the righteous, *
and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.
12 Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, *
and give thanks to his holy Name.          Psalm 97
