DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 18th Sep 2022
The Lord had been pleading with Israel since their journey to the Promised Land to flee idolatry and disobedience which prevented many of their fathers who left Egypt from entering Canaan. It was equally the reason for their long captivity in Babylon.
From the text, the Lord asked Israel to continue in their sins but should not pollute His holy name with idolatrous gifts. He still promised through Prophet Ezekiel that He would gather and sanctify Israel again, and bring them to the land that He promised to give their fathers, for His name’s sake.

Today, there is idolatry everywhere: in streets, offices and homes. You may not be physically involved like the children of Israel; yours may be in the heart because idolatry is not limited to worshipping idols. It is placing anything or anyone above God and His word. A covetous man is an idolater: he sets money in his heart and pursues it above all things; and so, he has no inheritance in heaven. Worshipping material things, human beings, academic achievement, etc., more than the Creator, is idolatry.

CONT: DCLM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 18 SEPT 2022
Many who claim to be serving God place their interest, loyalty, confidence and trust on something or someone else. As heaven-bound believers, we must flee all forms and shades of idolatry. We should avoid friends, habits and systems that encourage idolatry. The Lord commands that we live and walk in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our lives. Therefore, we should painstakingly search and try our ways today to see if our hearts incline to obey anyone or anything contrary to God and His precepts.
