“Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.”
Whether you are aware or not, we all choose a god to serve. One definition of a god is; a person or thing that is greatly loved or admired. You can choose a god consciously or unconsciously.
What you love most is indicative of what your god is. It could be money, power fame or a person. As Christians, God is supposed to be our number one love.
The importance of the god you choose is usually revealed in a time of crisis. You can come to a point in life where everything(money, fame, power) you have has failed. It’s in those times that, the god you have chosen becomes important.
