A Hymn of Praise


The Lord made the earth by his power,
and he preserves it by his wisdom.
With his own understanding
he stretched out the heavens.
When he speaks in the thunder,
the heavens are filled with water.
He causes the clouds to rise over the earth.
He sends the lightning with the rain
and releases the wind from his storehouses.

The whole human race is foolish and has no knowledge!
The craftsmen are disgraced by the idols they make,
for their carefully shaped works are a fraud.
These idols have no breath or power.
Idols are worthless; they are ridiculous lies!
On the day of reckoning they will all be destroyed.

But the God of Israel is no idol!
He is the Creator of everything that exists,
including his people, his own special possession.
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name!

Many blessings,

  1. Great post, Lisa. There are so many idols that steal and rob our time, but we know that they will all fall. But God, the Creator, will never fail us, will never fall.

    Blessings,

  6. I'm reminded idols aren't just little statues made out of stone or wood. Money can be an idol. Ambition can be an idol. A relationship can be an idol. May we keep HIM first in our lives!

  13. Awesome post Lisa,
    Why trust in a idol which can do nothing when we have the Creator whom we can trust?
