TOPIC: TROUBLES OF THE OTHER GODS (EPISODE EIGHTEEN)
BIBLE VERSE: Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips Psalms 16:4
The Bible says troubles multiply for those who chase after other gods. David wrote this in the Bible. Despite the fact that he was a young man, his eyes had seen a lot. He had gone through some experiences that made him wiser than his age mates. He knew what it meant to follow after other gods. No wonder he said he was not going to be part of their blood offerings, neither will the name of these other gods be heard from his lips.
So many are going to church but still carry their other gods around. They want peace but the more they long to have it, the more it moves far away from them. The Bible can never be broken. God’s word is yea and amen. God had said He will put differences between those that call on Him and those that do not or those that call upon His name in vain.
Do you know what it means for something to be multiplied? If you have two naira and it is multiplied then you will have four naira. By the time your four naira is multiplied it becomes eight naira and so. Yeah! That’s exactly what the Bible is saying. Are you a Christian? Do you still follow other gods? Repent today. God only is enough for you. Avoid multiplication of sorrows.
The problems of Lanre on the campus started with fears. The fears that should have drawn him to His Creator turned him to cultism. Although he had a roommate who tried to draw him closer to the Creator of heaven and earth, he refused. He had an option to choose between God and the devil, but he opted for the latter. God does not force Himself on anybody. He has given us free will to choose, it is now left for us to choose life or death.
There is a way that seems right unto man but the end leads to destruction. Check your life. Have you chosen right? Are you sure the path you are taking today will not cause the very sorrows you are running from to be multiplied. Only the path of Jesus Christ satisfies, follow it.
