Do not get complacent
nor settled in your heart

thinking I don’t care
or of good take any part

that you are okay worshiping
Me and other things

when I am the One True God
to seek and be following.


I can always seek, follow and ask of You, for You are with me.


“I will cast off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests with the pagan priests-“

“those who worship the host of heaven on the housetops; those who worship and swear oaths by the LORD, but who also swear by Milcom;”

“those who have turned back from following the LORD, and have not sought the LORD, not inquired of Him.”

“And it shall come to pass at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and punish the men that are settled in complacency, who say in their heart, ‘The LORD will not do good, nor will He do evil.’ “.

Zephaniah 1:4,5,6,12. NKJV

Sounding Forth


The word of the Lord
rings clear from us

our faith goes

as we turn to Him
from idols

serving God with love
and prayer.


Your word sounds forth from me for You are with me.


“For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, inot only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything.”

“For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God . . .”

1 Thessalonians 1:8,9. NKJV

Forsaking Mercy


Idols come
in many forms

if I seek anything
more than You

then I forsake
my precious Mercy

my life, my hope
my truth.


I know mercy for You are with me.


“Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy.”

“But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

Jonah 2:8,9 NKJV

High Places


All idols
and high places
all false altars
must now cease

come lay them
down before Me
so you can have
True Peace.

You establish what must be gotten rid of in my life.

“In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate, so that your altars may be laid waste and made desplate, your idols may be broken and made to cease, your incense altars may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.” Ezekiel 6:6 NKJV

Your Shield


You cannot trust
in idols
they do not see
or hear

trust only in
your King of Glory
your true help
and shield.

A laid down life has a trustworthy help and shield.

“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but to Your name give glory. Because of Your mercy, because of Your truth. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. Eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear. You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; He is their help and their shield.” Psalm 115:1,4,5,11. NKJV

What We Trust

“Their idols are silver and gold,
The work of men’s hands.
They have mouths, but they do not speak,
Eyes they have, but they do not see;
They have ears, but they do not hear;    Psalm 115:4-6

Those who make them are like them,
So is everyone who trusts in them.” 
Psalm 115:8

Only through Jesus can I really see, hear and speak.

Lord, please strip away those things I trust in more than You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Who Loves You



So much at
our fingertips

to depend on
to trust

but none of it
can love or care

like the Lord
of us.
