idols bow down (Day 5)

1 Samuel, Chapter 5

It comes with a heavy reminder that the holiness of God will not be placed alongside idols {vs 1-5} or mistreated by the hearts of people {vs 6-12} without consequences.

I do find it quite ironic that His own people had NO fear or respect for His Spirit {as shown in 1 Samuel 4} and yet the pagan nations were terrified of Him {5.11} and their own god was dropped into a position of worship and destroyed in His presence {5.3&4}.

Only God is worthy of our worship and, given the chance, He will destroy those things that we worship instead of Him.

(What is this all about?? check out the explanation on Day 1)

Looking up, as always…
