I've been mediating on these chapters for a few weeks now. Often, I receive insight applicable for right here, right now.
- Don't worship idols.
- Don't disobey God's direction.
- If you do, there are consequences.
I think if those Gentile nations had had an encounter with the Living God, the Great I Am, they wouldn't have turned to their own ways, serving gods of metal, wood and stone.
I think if we have an encounter with the Living God, the Great I Am, we wouldn't turn to our own ways, serving gods of money, power, and self.
"Great I Am" is one of those songs with such a strong anointing, that I can feel it breaking chains. The Great I Am pours out His grace on us to stand firm against temptation and gives us resolve to continually give ourselves to Him.
Feeling the Great I Am, God Almighty touch my soul causes the draws of this world to dim. Suddenly, a holy power fills my heart causing me to dance supernaturally. There is no idolatry in this place, no temptation, only angel voices singing. Now I am passionately worshipping along with heaven for One alone!!!
Friends, this is where we go to insulate ourselves from sin and temptation!!!
I have a long drive to work, and use that time to worship. This morning, I thought about this song and pictured myself dancing for Jesus. Guess what song played as I drove home tonight?
I love the way you love me, Great I Am.
