I will not pour out their libations of blood or take up their names on my lips (Psalm 16:4b).
I’m going to assume that you’re not conducting pagan worship ceremonies in which you call out to demonic forces while pouring the blood of innocents upon the altar.
If you are…stop it.
I mean, that’s really beyond the scope of what I’m prepared to deal with on a Wednesday.
But what will you rely on today, Beloved? Who? When Wednesday gets ugly, will you trust in the God who loves you and rely on his goodness and mercy and strength and wisdom, or will you be like the pagans who let pride or wealth or reputation or self-preservation guide their choices?
Because those can be idols, too.
You serve a mighty God, Beloved. Stand firm today.
