I have really perverted the scripture this time. I have made works I claim to be in God’s name, to be evidence that I am working in His name. I have become more than a mere deviant. I have become a self-idolizer. I believe I know the answers to the challenges and struggles that mankind faces and I have not begun to deal with those very same issues in my own life.
The Bible declares; Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
I want to be exalted. I want the non-believers, and even better, the believers, and better yet, my wife and offspring to know that I am right and I should be exalted.
The problem with that of course is that God will share His glory with no-one. So I get busy, hoping that people will see me and give me just a bit of the glory that belongs to God. The busier I get, the further I move away from God. Jehovah alone deserves glory and honor. I will perish. I will ‘disappear’ and return to the dust from which I came.
To catch up with God means to slow down, and be still, not speed up and do more. Be still and know that He alone is God. He alone is exalted and He shares that glory with no-one. Not even a nice good person like me.
Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
