Do one or more of these behaviours keep showing up in your life:
- Dissatisfaction – no joy, negativity, counting your curses instead of your blessings; always wanting more but never having enough,
- Dis-ease – restlessness, lack of peace and contentment, always feeling like you are coming up short or not good enough,
- Distemper – anger, frustration, judgmental attitude towards others (even those close to you)?
If you see yourself experiencing one or more of these three behaviours it’s because you are whoring around with the gods of this world. Gods of popularity, fashion, academics, materialism, narcotics, alcohol or sex; the gods of wealth, and yes even health. These have become gods to us because we look to them to satisfy our hearts. We have pursued them with our energy, given them our life, and even sacrificed our children to them. And yet, they never come through. They always, always, let us down.
Consider the money god. It will never give you what you deeply need, make you who you really want to be, or take you where you truly want to go? All it will do is curse you with it’s absence.
The story of Hosea and his wife, Gomer, reveals two very important truths: all of us are prone to prostituting ourselves and the consequences are dire and God desires to be our true husband whose love is so fulfilling that we never prostitute ourselves again.
Do you want to be free from the gods who have enslaved you into prostitution?
