O Lord, raise me up in righteousness and direct all my ways. Then shall those who worship the idols of this age see Your power and Your workings in my life. Surely, if I allow myself to be filled by the Lord than those around me will say, "God is with you and our gods are false." But what if I live like the rest of the world? What if my life is no different than those who worship idols? Then, the Lord will not be glorified in my life nor shall the see the futility of theirs.
I must remove the idols in my life and devote myself totally to the Lord and His Gospel Teachings. I must take the actions necessary to sequester those things which draw me away from the Lord. Even good things can become idols if they replace the Lord. And what is an idol in my life? It is those things that occupy my time and attention. That is what must displaced.
O God, be my Savior in this age and in the age to come. Be my everlasting salvation. Then in You, I shall not be ashamed or disgraced forever and ever. Amen.
