Devotional: You shall not make graven images

Devotional: You shall not make graven images

You shall not make for yourself a carved image with likeness of anything that is in heaven or that is in the earth or that is in the water beneath the earth and you shall not bow down to them or serve them. (Exodus 20:4-5)

This commandment shows us that God expects us to worship Him alone. We are also not to serve these graven images and give them the respect that is due to God.

Having these images in our possession is detrimental to our spiritual health and we have to get rid of them especially when we are engaged in Christian spiritual warfare. 

You shall not make graven images Exodus 20:4

We can see an example of this from Gideon because before God used him to deliver the Israelites from oppression by the Midianites, He told him to destroy Baal's altar and the wooden image that had been erected beside it and to build and altar for God on top of them. (Judges 6:25-26)  

Therefore destroy any carved images to false Gods that you have in your possession and ask God to forgive you.

Prayer
Father God I ask you in the name of Jesus to forgive me for the times I have knowingly and unknowingly bowed down, worshiped or served any graven images or false god. Amen.

Psalm 91 Devotional
