Monday 8/13 ~ Where is the Lord Almighty in my list of gods?

The scripture for today, August 13 (8/13), is Isaiah 8:13f as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

Inside-COVER-lg thumbnail“The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread, and he will be a sanctuary.”

“Holy” in both the Hebrew and Greek means someone or something set apart as very special. Who or what do you daily set apart as someone or something special? Do you in a sense “worship” that person or thing? Whoever or whatever you worship, you become a slave to. Are you a “slave” to anything in your life? Is there something you cannot control because it controls you? Are you a slave to attention or food or money or power or clothes or houses or cars or etc?

Then, when there is a tragedy in your life, can you rely on those things to get you through? Who or what will be your sanctuary in times of trouble? Will you be able to say, “The Lord Almighty…he will be my sanctuary” even though he is not a sanctuary to people who have put him at the bottom of their list?  Where is the Lord Almighty in your list of gods?
