Whether reading from Exodus or Deuteronomy, the message is quite clear “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” If you pay close attention to the manner in which the statement is written, you will notice that the word “gods” begins with a small “g” and the word “Me” begins with a capital “M.” This should be heeded as the Father’s message is quite clear, your “gods” are less than “Me.” In other words, “I Am” greater than all the “gods” you serve.”
We claim to serve one “God” and “we are true and faithful servants.” However, while we may believe this to be true, it may not be necessarily practiced. The “three gods” that we serve and worship on a daily basis are fear, doubt and worry. We kneel daily before them. We may not kneel physically, however through our thoughts, actions and deeds, we indeed kneel.
Of course, there are many other “gods” that we give homage as we move throughout our day; however, the most prevalent are “fear, worry and doubt.” I would venture to say, that at the bottom of any problem we are trying to solve, one of these “gods” is the cause. We fear that our prayers will not be answered by the Father and doubt begins her attacks and once fear and doubt have planted themselves firmly within our thoughts, we then begin to worry. Such a vicious cycle! And let it be noted, that these “gods” truly enjoy when we stray from our Father. When we stray, chaos is created within our spirit and attempts to sabotage our souls become their primary focus. They have known for centuries “you cannot serve several masters” and they patiently wait to see if you will “kneel and serve them.” They have known also for centuries that serving them or the Father is “the choice” we make on a daily basis.
Luke 16:13 states:” No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” James 1:8 “He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” When we are “unstable” we achieve nothing! So, it should be quite clear: A double minded “man or woman” receives nothing from the Father as we cannot be a servant to the positive and the negative. In other words, you make a choice on the Master you choose to serve and your reward is always just. What just reward do you seek?
