I remember in the past where I struggled with Idolatry a lot. My main reason was to be in a relationship, get married etc. What ended up happening was I actually wanted it more than God :(.
You see anything we put before God, love than God, desire more than God would be Idolatry. Think about it, God has done a lot of us and it would be pretty selfish that he isn’t what brings us happiness.
God really hates Idolatry and WILL destroy your idol :). Here are some tips to help you get rid of your Idol and be happy with God only.
Tips to overcome Idolatry:
- Get rid of everything that brings more joy than God. I decided to stay celibate and give my desire of marriage to God. This means I don’t wish to be in a relationship or even desire to be since that became my idol. I love God a lot and if getting married brings more joy than him, than I don’t want it anymore.
- Write a list of things God has done in your life. This will help you remember what God has done for you. It will also help you find joy in God only 🙂
- Try to make God the center of your life
- Pray for God to help you identify your idol Asking God for help is an amazing thing. Since he love’s you, he will gladly show you all your idols located in your heart. He will also help you get rid of them.
God loves us all and we should find complete happiness from him only!
