adultery or idolatry

Spiritual Adultery and Idolatry ALERT

We don’t often think of God regarding this matter. However, unfortunately, it sneaks up without us realizing it. Spiritual adultery includes any form of Idolatry. 

We know we love God. However, this world can take over our fleshly desires, therefore, move God in second place – this CANNOT happen!!  Being in that situation myself not realizing it until God revealed it to me; I was crushed to think I allowed that to happen. I believe God knows it is not our heart’s desire, therefore, send us ALERTS to revert to HIM. Some may or may not believe this, nonetheless, it happened to me and thank God it did; thus to repent and get straight with God. The object of our faith should in the cross of Jesus!

Material things cannot take precedence over our lives, considering it’s not what saves us or gives us eternal life; get that stuff behind what matters. We cannot let spiritual idolatry or adultery consume us. God is a jealous God when it comes to us, and our worship, meaning God has the right to us and when we give something else our worship then it’s a sin. Exodus 20:5

1 John 2:15 says Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him

It’s Ok to have material things as long as God is held above all else (not LOVING worldly things) and that we give back to the Lord with what He has given us. We cannot allow material things like vehicles, homes or even relationships get between God and us. Of course, we need things to survive nonetheless just be cautious and pray about what you need; don’t get attached to something that you cannot give away. God may have you bless someone else with it.

Things that require a lot of time such as home repairs; redecorating, landscaping or any other thing that consumes most of our time (besides your job) without giving proper time to God can hinder your relationship with Him additionally the works of the Lord in you or through you. In other words, the usual time to do these tasks. For example, if you repainted your kitchen cabinets over and over again because you don’t like the color when you’re finished consequently there’s a good chance the devil has you chasing a rabbit. (ALERT)  If you recognize this action (taking too much of your time) the enemy is trying to keep you super busy. He wants us to stay focused on other things, so we don’t have time for God. It’s the Devils tactics to keep us busy or show us things of the world to make us want it, and chase after things instead of God – Ultimately stealing our time from God. Therefore, we cannot allow that! If you find yourself in this situation, stop and repent. Ask God to help you as well.

We are to worship Him. Isaiah 43:7, Isaiah 43:21

God will give us what we need and sustain us if we believe in Him. Psalms 37:4 says Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

I wonder the more time spent with God, delighting ourselves in Him if we even want what the world has? Probably not because he is more than enough for us! Ephesians 3:20 says it all……
