"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."

-Acts 4:12

 

I can only imagine how it must have been for Moses after receiving the law from The Lord on Mount Sinai, walking back to the people of Israel after fleeing from captivity in Egypt, only to find his right hand man, Aaron, with all of the people of Israel, making a golden calf as their God. He must have said something like: "Really?! Is this a joke?! Yeah, I know, this is a joke on me for taking too long in the mountain. Haha, that was a good one."

Unfortunately, they were serious, and this very thing is not very uncommon up to this very day. When we think God hasn't shown up in our lives and we want answers right away, we go to Social media, other people who we are friends with... let's also not forget Google, which supposedly has the answers to all our problems.

The problem with taking refuge in all these things is the same problem the people of Israel had. They are really good for nothing when it comes to our true meaning and purpose in this life. Mr. Samsung or Ms. Siri couldn't possibly know what it is you were made for, although I will admit that asking Siri what zero divided by zero is, that is hilarious. But, just like the golden calf, it was made by us. We are finite, and The Lord almighty is FOREVER. Learn from your mistakes, the mistakes of others, and reflect on God's promises as a navigator for your journey and walk with Him.
