Ultimately, anything that draws a person away from God becomes a tool of the devil. The idols of Joshua’s day were not really gods. They were carvings of wood and metal and rock (Isa. 44:9-20). In serving them, the people were actually serving the devil. And, whenever we place anything above God today, it is the devil we are actually serving.
Many people want to put off making a decision. They don’t want to make a commitment just yet. They don’t want to take a stand today. They don’t want to make a choice right now. They want to wait until a time they feel is more convenient for them comes along. Sound familiar (Acts 24:24-25)?
But when it comes to serving God, there is no such thing as non-commitment. To not make a commitment to God is actually to make a commitment against Him. To not stand with God is to stand against Him. To put off making a decision to serve God is to decide to not serve Him. Jesus put it this way: “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad” (Matt. 12:30).
It is time for you to realize that you are making a choice each day, whether you mean to or not and whether you realize it or not. You are actively choosing either to follow God, or you are choosing to follow the devil. There is no middle ground. Recognizing this reality, why don’t you make up your mind today, and choose God..?
