Following Idols- Part 2
Reading through Jeremiah , God truly is speaking to his people with warning in Chapter 10 he is instructing Jeremiah to speak to them about their worthless idols and worship of the man made things that they shape into gods.
But think, how many things are we putting in front of God as our worship? How about our own agenda and what we want, forgetting God when we should be always praising Him!
So we see here in the following verses Jeremiah was given to remind them who their God is, to praise Him because of His mighty power, He alone is God- Jehovah.
11 You people must tell them that the gods who did not make the earth and the sky will be destroyed. They will no longer exist anywhere on earth.
A Hymn of Praise to God
12 The Lord made the earth by his power;
by his wisdom he created the world
and stretched out the heavens.
13 At his command the waters above the sky roar;
he brings clouds from the ends of the earth.
He makes lightning flash in the rain
and sends the wind from his storeroom.
14 At the sight of this, people feel stupid and senseless;
those who make idols are disillusioned,
because the gods they make are false and lifeless.
15 They are worthless and should be despised;
they will be destroyed when the Lord comes to deal with them.
16 The God of Jacob is not like them;
he is the one who made everything,
and he has chosen Israel to be his very own people.
The Lord Almighty is his name.
