Everyone sing praise to God because “God chose (you), embraced (you) as a prize possession.”TM Praise Him because of all he did and wants to do for you! “He struck down”TM your problems, pains, sorrows, fears. “He made (your enemies) sit up and take notice”TM of how He is going to fight for you as He leads you into a better life – a good life, the best life, which is His plan for you! His good plan for you! You see what God did for Israel
delivering them from the Egyptians’ slavery! He is ready and willing to do the same for all of us that love Him. “God, you’ll never be out of date. God (as always) stands up for His people. God holds the hands of His people”TM as he leads them to a wonderful promised land, specifically designed for them – one at a time! God has a plan for your life. A plan “for good and not for bad. A plan to give hope and a future.” So don’t follow after, pursue the three “P” idols of this world; pleasure, possessions, and prestige. They are totem poles! “…mere trinkets, made for quick sale in the market place.”TM They have “chiseled mouths that can’t speak.”TM God speaks to you through the world around you and His Word (the Bible!). They have “painted eyes that can’t see.”TM God
watches over all your problems and cares about you. They have “carved ears that can’t hear.”TM God hears every prayer. They are “…dead wood! Cold metal! Those who trust them…”TM to make their lives meaningful and to find happiness become “dead wood” and “cold metal” themselves. Don’t look to anything but God and His Plan for your lives revealed to you in His word. Look for it, as if it were the most precious thing in life – – – because it is!
