There’s No Substitute for the Lord

Scripture:  "And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which
cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing." 1 Samuel 12:21
I can appreciate how the Lord levels the playing field,
He inspires us without condemning us so that we would yield;

Many have strived and positioned themselves to be winners,
Yet, the Lord slows us down with the reminder, we all are sinners;

We are guilty of substituting the Lord with other means and resources,
Despite He is our advisor, teacher, and leader, we covet other voices;

Christians don’t live by explanations, we live by the Lord’s promises,
Therefore, our hope is validated by one source through spiritual services;

This causes confession and repentance for a spiritual account,
Considering who and what consumes our time in larger amounts;

Even things that are noble shouldn’t substitute my walk with the Lord,
Devoting ourselves to activities means nothing if His presence is avoided;

Simply being honored and celebrated by many can become a substitute,
Taking the glory and attention while the Lord is overshadowed and muted;

Continuing to value worldly resources more than His provisions and deity,
Removing the Lord as the priority while showcasing our enemies;

There’s no substitute worthy or capable of directing the Lord’s plans,
Money, power, and popularity are minimal compared to His sovereign hands;

Prayer: Forgive me for allowing other resources to take Your place. And still, You
are faithful and patience with me. There’s no comparison to Your sovereignty.
You are more than enough. In the matchless name of Jesus. Amen.
