Sometimes, we have idols in our lives and we don’t even realize it. Idols make us weary, make us work, and make us worry.
Isaiah 46 gives four clear distinctions between an idol and the one true God.
- God created His people (vs 3-4) but idols must be created (vs 6.)
- God carries His people (vs 4) but idols must be carried (vs 1.)
- God converses with His people (vs 3 & 12) but idols do not speak (vs 7.)
- God comes to the rescue of His people (vs 4 & 12) but idols can not save someone from his trouble.
Who (or what) are we trusting in during times of trial?
