God is jealous for us
I am totally convinced that at some time in our lives God will test our loyalty to Him by asking us to give up the very thing we love and think we can not live without. Why? God is jealous for our affections and he does not want to be an addendum to our plans. [click-to-tweet] He wants the priority seat in the airplanes of our lives and hearts.
Confessing your idols
What is the one thing that you can not do without? By this I mean it is detrimental to your very being. Whatever you answered this question with, if you’re a Christian and your answer wasn’t God then you have made an idol out of said object or maybe said person. And for that, you will have to learn to lay it down and trust God with ALL of your life and earthly possessions because, “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Here, Jesus expresses the saliency of treasuring and idolizing and how it leads to control.
