Psalm 36:1-2 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
So many people today are searching for some sense of reality in their life. They may not realize it, but they are looking for a god, any god. Some have concluded in their heart that if they cannot see this god then it must not be. In doing so they have unwittingly declared themselves to be their own god.
The only problem with this is, what kind of god might that be? This type of god becomes a god people are equal with on some level and one that they can explain. However, if we could explain the one who created us, who created all that we can see around us, and who breathed the very life we enjoy into us, what kind of god could that be.
I pray we do not flatter ourselves in our own eyes as the verse says, and somehow become our own gods. That we do not allow ourselves to begin to believe we are more important than the one true God who loved us enough to send His only begotten Son to die on a cross for our sins. However, when our wants, our desires, and our will become more important in our own eyes than the wants, desires, and the will of God, is not that what we have done? Have we not then made ourselves out to be our own god?
As you begin today and spend time with God, tell Him how much He means to you. Find in Him what can never be found in you. In the one and only true God, we can find, never-ending, never-changing, and never-faltering WISDOM and LOVE. That is my kind of GOD!
