All who serve carved images,
those who boast in idols, will be put to shame.
All the gods must worship Him.
Zion hears and is glad, and the towns of Judah rejoice because of Your judgments, Lord.
For You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods.
~~Psalms 97:7-9 HCSB
What comes to your mind when you hear the word “judgment?” This word has a negative connotation for most of us, but here we see a whole new way of thinking. God wants us to worship and serve Him alone. Those serving idols and doing evil DO need to fear judgment because they have ignored the Lord, but for the follower of Christ judgment day is one of vindication and reward. God’s judgments are holy and righteous and will be a time of exuberant celebration as even the little “g” gods must bow down and worship our Father.
Who/what are you worshipping?
