I think you can imagine yourself standing in the presence of God worshiping and praising Him. You are thinking about all the things He is and has done. You know that He is good. You know that He is above all and that includes yourself. You remind yourself that He is the one that has done everything He wants to do – created all that we see and touch. You know His name will last forever and His testimonies will be a memorial that will last forever. In all that thinking, remembering, believing, trusting and living in His presence – you are declaring the character and purpose of God and you are being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I think that you can imagine yourself standing in the presence of people who declare there is no God. Their idols are quite possibly the material wealth that seems to grab everyone’s attention. Whether it is gold or silver or the work of their own hands, their gods have eyes but cannot see, they have ears but cannot hear and they have mouths but cannot speak. They too become who they are thinking, remembering, believing, trusting and living with.
