This is the arrangement that God outlined for the people.
👉The angel would guide the people.
👉The Lord would blot out their enemies.
👉The people were to identify and destroy idols.
The first order of business would be to fulfill the first commandment. “You shall have no other gods besides me.”
What if that was our first order of business? This quarantine period can be a real eye opener in terms of idols that may have slipped into our lives. What am I missing the most? Social activity, money, comfort, routine? What has God “utterly overthrown and broken down” (verse 24) and is it possible that it was becoming an idol in my life?
