Our Living God

Pointed out in Psalm 115, idols do not have any sense or reason and are works of human hands: the painter, the carver, the statuary. They can’t see, hear, smell, feel, or speak but God has all of these along with great wisdom and purpose for everything.

In today’s passage, Israel appeals for God’s help knowing that they can trust the living God who has helped them in the past. When they have respected Him with reverence for his Word and relied on Him, they have been blessed. With confidence, they can trust that He will refresh their souls and bless them forever.

There is no power in idols but the worship and praise of the ONE and only God leads to a great capacity for victory so spend some time in silence; putting away the cares and concerns of this world so that all attention is on hearing directions from the Holy Spirit.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
