Scripture reading: Genesis 11-12
Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the earth. Genesis 11:4
So, here is the issue of worship at its core. God calls me to worship Him and my flesh wants only to worship myself. The tower was being built to directly oppose the command of God. He had said that the people should spread out. They were building the tower so they would not have to obey. They were worshiping their own thoughts and desires.
How will I worship God? How will I worship Him alone? How many times have I started building a tower of my own thoughts that are actually in opposition to God? What are my towers of disobedience? I must tear them down so that I can worship my sweet, precious God in spirit and in truth and in obedience.
Dear Lord, please show me all the areas in my life that place me in opposition to You. Show me the towers of disobedience in my life and lead me to the beautiful adoration of You for which I have been designed. You alone are worthy of my praise and my worship. Amen
