Prone to Wander

“They exchanged the glory of God for the image of an ox that eats grass.”
Psalm 106:20
Lord, how could the Israelites, who had witnessed the wonders You had done for them, experienced Your incredible power and seen Your marvelous work in their lives turn to an ox—something so worthless and that could do nothing for them?

But God, how easily do I run to idols I create—things that are futile and vain? How quickly does my heart wander from You even though You have saved me and done so much for me?

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Your courts above
(hymn: Come Thou Fount)

“Keep me at all times from robbing Thee and from depriving my soul of Thy due worship.”  Valley of Vision

May we learn and take heed from the choices of the Israelites, being careful not to turn to other things instead of to Christ alone.
