A Challenging Question

Today I am asking a simple question:

“Is God the first one you turn to, or your last resort?”

I’ll be honest, many times when a problem has reared it’s ugly head, I’ve tried to solve it myself first, then turned to my husband for help, then turn to someone/something else and finally when none of that works/ makes me feel any better…I’ll turn to God. I read somewhere today that:

“the only reason we fail to pray is because we’ve made an idol out of self… it’s my own inflated sense of self-importance, the elevation of my work, my agenda, that keeps me from prayer… that’s called idol worship… I don’t pray enough because I’m [too busy] practicing idol worship.”

Well, that was a slap in the face. But so true. It breaks God’s heart that so many people (myself included) would essentially turn to idol worship first, making God a last resort instead of taking a few minutes to place Him in the driver’s seat, and to hand Him the keys once again. So think about this question and what it may mean needs to change in your life:

“Is God the first one you turn to, or your last resort?”
