The King of Nations


Read about Moses and his reaction to the Golden Calf in Exodus 32


  • Lord, there is no one like you!
  • For you are great, and your name is full of power.
  • Who would not fear you, O King of nations?
  • That title belongs to you alone!
  • Among all the wise people of the earth and in all the kingdoms of the world,
    there is no one like you.

  • People who worship idols are stupid and foolish.
  • The things they worship are made of wood!
  • They bring beaten sheets of silver from Tarshish and gold from Uphaz,
    and they give these materials to skillful craftsmen who make their idols.

  • Then they dress these gods in royal blue and purple robes made by expert tailors.
  • But the Lord is the only true God.
  • He is the living God and the everlasting King!
  • The whole earth trembles at his anger.
  • The nations cannot stand up to his wrath.

~ Jeremiah 10:6 – 10 NLT

These verses are a good reminder to me today. Do I, in thought or deed, worship anyone or anything instead of worshiping the Living God, the Everlasting King of Nations?

God had said in Exodus 20:23:

Remember, you must not make any idols of silver or gold to rival me.
