Daily Readings — Energy as God?

Day 2035: Jesus is coming soon . . .

Scripture: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.  Exodus 20:2-4

Thoughts/questions: As the youth of the U.S. try to find their spiritual path, I’m hearing a lot of references regarding staying away from ‘religion’ and realizing that we are all just energy. A few thoughts on this.

Any force has power; however, to be ‘the’ creative force/god within the universe a few other characteristics need to be considered. Is that power all-powerful, personal, and purposeful. Using electricity as an example, it lacks a bit.

First it is impersonal. Plug a lamp into its power and you get light. Stick your finger in it and this energy does not discriminate. It only does what it does and is completely impersonal. It’s power does have a purpose; however, that power is limited. All the energy I’m aware of seems to be similar.

God qualifies in all three categories; therefore, can issue the statement in today’s verse – I am the Lord your God – you shall have no other gods before Me. He is all-powerful, purposeful, and personal. His love is for all, but He has a standard for each of us and an individual plan for our lives.

No, energy can’t come close to expressing itself like God does in today’s verse. It may sound good on the surface, but a closer look reveals its weaknesses. He is God, energy is not!!!

Suggested prayer:Father God, help me to share the truth that You and ONLY You are God . . .
