Love Delusions

Reflecting on the words of David this week:

Psalm 4
Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods
3 Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
the LORD hears when I call to him.

4 Tremble and do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
and trust in the LORD.

6 Many, LORD, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
Let the light of your face shine on us.
7 Fill my heart with joy
when their grain and new wine abound.

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, LORD,
make me dwell in safety.

Delusions = things that mislead the mind.

Lord, What are the delusions in my life that you are calling me out on? Help me to be aware of them and to replace them with your word.

Hi Julie,
I am glad to see you back; I have missed you and wondered what you had been up to....

"How long will you love delusions and seek false gods" I think as long as we are on the throne of our lives instead of God....We naturally want our way and that leads to delusions and setting up false gods. Keeping our focus on Jesus and the scriptures instead of on me helps to bring down all the strongholds that would lead to delusions and false gods....

Julie, this is a very good post and one that needs much pondering at the foot of the Savior.....
