Keep away!

Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.  1John 5:21 NLT

“The God Hole”!!!  Thats what we call it.. the place that God made in each person He created that only He fits in.   It is our tendency to try to put other things in that spot, but nothing else will do.   Once we discover that only God will fit in that spot, it doesn't take us long to find Him.  When we do, the heart is complete, our joy is full, and our life is grand!

How sad that a person who has had God in the right, place, would try to replace Him with “anything” else?  A friend once told me, “Putting God in my heart is easy… keeping Him there is hard”!  Why?
As it is written, “… all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things”  [Mark 4:19]

Beloved, God does not just leave His place in the heart… the heart simply crowds Him out.    My prayer today is that we all will have sense enough to keep away from worry, lures of wealth, or any other thing that might take God’s place in our hearts.

As you pray, ask the Lord to show you what you should, "Keep Away from”!?
