Do You Have a Wimpy God?

The other day, I went to the Water Park with my granddaughter and her friend. While the girls splashed in the water, I sat quietly observing people around me. Again and again, I heard people of every age saying, “Oh my god!”. 

The phrase wasn’t even spoken as an excited expletive, but as a common part of speech! My heart ached for these people with a god so pitiful that they could use his name as casually as any other word.   

“Oh, my god, it’s hot. Oh, my god, I could use a cold drink.  Oh, my god, what am I going to fix for supper? OMG! Oh, god, then what happened?” As I sat, I began to pray for these poor people with a wimpy god.  

My God is an almighty God; He is ruler over the universe (II Chronicles 20:6)!  He created the heavens and the earth (Isaiah 42:5). He calls the stars by their name (Ps. 147:4)!  He loves me so much that He sent His son to die for my sins so that I can have a relationship with Him(John 3:16)! 

I can’t imagine the name of my God being on my lips for any reason other than praise or because I’m telling of His wonderful works!  To say His name with the nonchalance of speaking of an empty can—mercy! I know my God, He is worthy of respect and worship! 

A God should be worthy of worship, if not, why would he be a god? His name should be far above any other word or name! 

If your god is so wimpy that you find yourself making his name common, come talk to me, I want to tell you about MY God. The Lord God Almighty!  

Exodus 20:7 You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Amen, sister. It bothers me to know end as well when I hear making these kinds of remarks about my God. He is the Great God Jehovah! He is the Alpha and the Omega. There is no other god except our Lord and King! God bless you and keep writing.
